Emerald Shores cottage description

Wow, what a great vacation home in the Destin area! Located in the tranquil, gated neighborhood of Emerald Shores, this three story, four bedroom, three bath home sits in a cul-de-sac at the community pool and only a five minute walk to the beach! There is also a free tram service to the beach during the summer months! Recent updates include a new 51' Plasma TV with some high def channels, DVD players, and a new stainless steel Kitchen with granite counters! New Stainless Steel appliances and new granite counters installed Spring 2012!! New TVs in the bedrooms have been added too!

Sit out on the wrap-around balconies or the first floor covered porch and enjoy the weather and the views of the neighborhood and pool! There is a distant water view from the third floor balcony!

This Caribbean cottage, named 'Caribe,' is decorated with a Caribbean theme and bright colors! It sleeps 12! The first floor has a spacious and open floor plan with tiled floors. The second floor is carpeted in the bedrooms and tiled in the bathrooms and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a bonus room leading to the second floor balcony. The third floor is a loft area with twin beds with access to yet another balcony! High Speed internet access on 1st floor.

Emerald Shores has its own Beach Cabana with restrooms, picnic tables, and lounge chairs. There are also two heated pools, tennis court, shuffle board, and a basket ball court! Conveniently located to the Destin Commons Mall, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Golf, Restaurants, and more!

The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!' Destin is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports.

Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes two to three times a year event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you'll want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why!
