Property description

Fabulous Caribbean Style cottage in Emerald Shores! St. Croix is a 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath home in the gated neighborhood of Emerald Shores off Scenic Gulf Drive in Destin. This home is a short 5 minute walk to the community's private beach access via a Pavilion with lounge chairs, picnic tables, and restrooms. Recent upgrades include a big 50' LCD TV with High Def channels in the living room and a big 32' LCD Sony Bravia in the Master Bedroom! Slate tile floors added to the front and side porches. Big propane BBQ grill on side porch for barbecuing at home! Owners have thought about every comfort and made this home extra nice!

St. Croix sleeps 10 adults and 4 children! Our bunkbeds are designed for children! There is a king bed in the master bedroom on the main level, a king and 2 sets of bunks on the 2nd level, and a king and 2 twins on the 3rd level. Catch a glimpse of the Gulf from the 3rd floor balcony! There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room. Decorated in beach themes and colors, this home is a fantastic vacation home! Two covered 1st floor porches and 2 covered balconies! You'll love the space and amenities with this home. Emerald Shores has 2 pools, a tennis court, basketball goal, shuffle board and a great location to Destin attractions! Come once and you'll come again and again! No smoking and no pets are permitted. Can park 4 cars or 3 SUVs!

Centrally located to all Destin activities including beach, fishing, dolphin cruises, restaurants, shopping, movie theaters, etc. Destin Commons is 2 miles to the west and Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall is 2 miles to the east!

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!' The Destin area 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!

No Security Deposit! Save with our Accidental Damage Waiver Program!

Lots of things to do in Destin! Close to everything! You'll enjoy the shopping, restaurants, and night life! The kids will love the beach, pools, theme parks, and Big Kahunas! You'll all love the gated neighborhood with 2 pools, tennis court, basketball goal, and private beach cabana right on the beach with lounge chairs, picnic tables, restrooms, and a short order cafe/bar only a 5 minute walk from our home!
