Property description

Hi Friends!

Emerald Villa is ready for you to check out the newly upgraded counter tops and appliances and newly upgraded bathrooms!

We are super excited that you are considering renting our vacation home. We deeply believe in family and community and it is our goal is to make your vacation experience as rich and relaxing as possible. Our hope is that you will spend time sharing stories and having conversations on the back patio with the ones you love. (Don’t forget the bottle of wine!) A successful vacation in our opinion is one where relationships and families are strengthened as a result of staying at our home. We can’t wait to hear your story!

Our home, “Emerald Villa” is located in the gated community of Emerald Shores in Destin, Florida. We love Emerald Shores because it is one of most family friendly communities on the Emerald Coast and has a unique beach pavilion located directly on the sand with access to all guests. The community has 2 swimming pools (One seasonably heated), a basketball, tennis, and shuffleboard court that are easily accessible by the community sidewalks.

We love that the beach is just a short 7 minute walk away but after a long day in the sun or after a giant breakfast, we love catching the Emerald Shores Tram that will get you there in no time. (It is important to note that the tram only runs during the summer months.) If the beach isn’t your scene, you will enjoy being only 2 minutes from either swimming pool. Lounge chairs provided!

Our home has just one floor, which means no hauling luggage/groceries/babies up and down stairs. We enjoy the open floor plan which creates an environment suitable for game and movie nights after dinner! We also want to save you money on the rising cost of cell phone data so we included FREE WIFI in the house!

Here is a short description of all rooms in the house:

Master Bedroom: One KING size bed sleeping 2. There is a full bath including a Jacuzzi and separate shower. The Master Bedroom has a full walk-in closet for clothing and luggage. It also features a 37” flat screen TV with DVD player and brand new hardwood floors!

Second Master Bedroom: The second Master Bedroom has a large QUEEN BED sleeping two. This room also has a 37” flat screen TV with DVD player. There is a full bath just outside this door. It also has brand new hardwood floors!

Bunk Room: The third bedroom features two sets of bunk beds for the children! This room is adjacent to the second Master and located just outside the full bath. It has a 32” flat screen and Sleeps 4. Brand new hardwood floors!

Living Room: The living room has two couches and one large chair. It also has a 37” HDTV with a DVD player and an IPOD dock stereo. It has a ceiling fan and a small bar in the corner. Also has futon for additional sleeping!

Kitchen: The kitchen come fully equipped with all of the amenities you will need for your vacation. All dishes, cutlery, and appliances are provided. (Blender, toaster, coffee maker, etc…) There is a kitchen table for 4 as well as a bar area with stools. (Check out pictures)

Futon: Located in the living room for extra sleeping arrangements.
