Great Home and Location
Great Home and Location
We rented this house for a family wedding and were extremely happy with our visit. We had 4 adults and the house was perfect and allowed for everyone to have their own space through the week! The house was just as described and detailed in pictures and had everything we needed to cook through the week! The experience was extremely pleasant from the booking process through to the arrival and departure procedures! We visit this area 1-2 times a year and will definitely be keeping this on our list for a return!

Clean, comfortable, relaxing home

My family included me, my husband, my boys (6 1/2 and 8 years old), and my in-laws. The first full day at the house, it rained all day but that was okay since it allowed us to catch up with my in-laws who flew in from another state. We all thought the house was extremely clean and nicely remodeled with new linens. It was everything I was expecting because I researched to ensure we had a clean, new-feeling house. We all had our own bathrooms. Me and my husband used the downstairs, queen-bed bedroom; the boys used the bedroom with the two twins and my in-laws used the master bedroom with a sitting area and balcony. The two pools look smaller in the pictures and if you are looking at them from the car, but when you enter the pool area, the pools are big enough for playing and swimming for kids. The back pool is about 100 yards from the house. The main pool (close to the entrance) is about 200 yards. I may be off from my measurements, but they are both close. The walk to the beach is easy. You walk through the neighborhood, out a side gate to the sidewalk, pass a small condo complex, cross a two-lane street where there is a stop sign and where people stop and let you get across, then down a set of steps to the sand. It takes about 5 minutes to get to the beach. We used the house's wagon on most days to carry our little cooler, a couple chairs, the two boogie boards, and a big beach bag. We rented an umbrella and two chairs, which was really convenient to have. It was set up next to the water in front of the gate where we entered. There is a Winn Dixie about two miles away. The Outlet shops are across the street from Winn Dixie. We also used the CVS which is a block away. Don't forget your beach towels like we did. We bought cheap ones at CVS. The nieghborhood is gated so I felt comfortable letting my boys use their Razor scooters around the neighborhood. They made friends with a boy a couple doors down and we met them at the beach and pool every day. The washer/dryer made things so convenient. Of all the restaurant recommendations we received, McGuire's Irish Pub (Destin) is excellent. Has the best ribeye I've ever had! McGuire's pizza (next door) has excellent pizza also. The pizza is a cross between a New York style and Chicago style, if you can imagine that. I am extremely happy with our choice in renting this home for a week. I would gladly rent it again next year. Thanks for excellent cleaning -can you tell I'm a clean freak!

We enjoyed our stay, I do recommend highly you bring a good sturdy wagon with rubber wheels to tote your stuff down to the beach. Short trip to beach but the wagon makes it more easier! Convient to everything and we loved our stay ! If you are going to cook, do bring some bigger pots and pans, the house is limited on the small cookware , but other than that it is very very clean and very well maintained !

Manager response: There is a wagon for taking things to the beach. It is is kept in the storage space at the side of the house! We appreciate knowing about the cookware and will certainly add additional "large" pots and pans to our house!!! Thank you so much!!!!

The house was perfect for our family. We have stayed in the neighborhood before and love the location, the 2 neighborhood pools, and the proximity to the beach and shopping. We were very comfortable in the home. The beds were very comfortable. There were more than enough pillows, blankets, towels for everyone.The pictures on the website don't do it justice. The living room is actually bigger than the pictures appear. The master bath shower was a treat for all. The beach had lots of seaweed and algae, so the 2 neighborhood pools were perfect for entertaining the kids as well as for the adults. The location is withing walking distance to CVS, Alvins Island, the beach, and a few other shops. If all things work out, and we are able to visit Destin again next year, we would definetly love to rent this property again next year. Thanks again for allowing us to rent your property and making our vacation complete.

We had 5 adults stay at the home & we really enjoyed our time. The house is very up to date inside and with TV's in the rooms (cable) and wireless internet. It was also great the home already had beach stuff so you don't have to drag it with you. Ocean is very walkable and easy to access. Pools in the subdivision are a little small. Overall enjoyed our time. Thank you for sharing your home.

Our family has rented vacation homes in Destin for years. This property ranks as one of the best. The beds were comfortable, the furniture and appliances were first rate, and the location was convenient. The VRBO photos do not quite do it justice --- It was actually nicer than we expected. The master bath, in particular, is outstanding and the owners have thought of virtually everything you'd need for a pleasant vacation. The neighborhood pools are small but nice and the Gulf is only a block away. It's a gated community and many of the homes have full-time residents, so it is safe (wonderful for kids). Do yourself a favor and at least consider this great property for your next trip to the panhandle.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Emerald Waters VIllage Retreat home... Not only was the home beautiful, but it accommodated all of our needs perfectly. All amenities were available in the house. We felt right "at home". We will definitely be booking our early summer vacation again next year unless BP can't get their act together. We love Destin, but our stay in your home made it even better. THANKS, The Langlois'
