                      • Emerald Isle is a relatively quite complex, with the largest pool, with keypad gate, tennis cour.. Over 50% of the occupants live there, out of 70 units. Eccept for 2 holiday weekends, the place is quite peaceful. Try it you might be surprised how nice it is. Ed Gove...moreless

                        The property owner, Ed, and his family are an absolute pleasure to work with. We were greeted with open doors upon our arrival. The condo is super clean and comfortable from the master bed to the balcony furniture! We loved the size of the 3-7 ft. pool that is very well kept. Beyond the pool a few short steps is the beautiful Fort Walton Beach! This area and complex was so nice and quiet for a wonderful vacation. We definitely recommend this property!

                        Owner response: Thanks Trish for your great review. It's folks like you that help us rent our condo. We appreciate both your rental @ review. Please come back. Regards, Jan @ Ed Gove

                        Except for 2 minor mishaps (we were briefly locked in and briefly locked out) of the condo because the external door had a broken handle that should have already been replaced but wasn't. I assisted the female caretaker by taking the handle completely off so we could go in and out without any further problems during our stay. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and the owner and caretakers seemed very nice. It was only a short walk to the beach, right past the pool area which was nice. There was the sea moss problem which we experienced 2 years ago when we stayed at another condo on okoloosa island. We drove over to the destin public beach one day and even further down another day and the water there was completely clear.

                        Owner response: Good morning Tim. Thanks for your complementary review, I hoped the door problem wouldn't ruin your vacation. The door handle had been ordered after Home Depot told us that it could take up to a month to get the part, so we ordered the handle on line & it may be installed by now. I hope this problem won't take us off your next vacation plans. I realize your visit was an inconvenience,but I hope the $100 refund took out some of your frustration. Thanks again,

                        Everything was great and as advertised. We particularly liked the balcony furniture and the comfortable bed. My favorite part of renting this condo was dealing with the owner, who was an extremely nice person. I hope to have the opportunity to come back and enjoy this place again. Thanks so much for your hospitality! Scott K.

It will be an asset for my future rentals. I just received a print copy from my office which is the reason for being so late in acknowledging this note.. Thanks , Ed

                        Great communication from owner and wonderful to deal with! Room was easy to find, comfortable & spacious! We loved the huge bay windows & all the comforts of home! Location is close to pool and beach...with children that's a huge bonus! Directions from the owner were A+ accurate - no problems at all! We would have liked to have had the awesome ocean view straight out from the living area but for the price we paid we're still satisfied. We recommend Fudpucker's as a great restaurant to try, lots of choices at moderate prices along with excellent quality and service. Thanks for a great family vacation! We went to the pool/beach every day and made lots of memories for the kids. Hope to be dealing with you in the future!

                        We enjoyed our mini vacation at the Emerald Isle property. The location was great and it was overall clean. It had everything we needed and we didn't want to go home. We would recommend the property and hope to go back again sometime. The listing was accurate and the owner was very helpful. We didn't eat out, but once and we got a pizza from some place down the street. It was very good.

                        Owner response: Hello Jackie, I really appreciate you letting me know about the pillows and TV remote. I will buy a set of softer king size pillows and a new TV remote for the bedroom. It would be difficult for the housekeeper to know about the needs you told me about unless they watched TV or laid down on the bed, and that's not what is in her list of cleaning responsibilites (laugh), don't you agree? Thanks, ED

                        We loved this condo! Not only was the condo great the owner was so responsive and helpful! I don't know about most but a kind and helpful owner helps alot! This unit was just right for our family and we will definently return next year for a full week. The pool was great and the beach was NOT a golf ride away which was what we were looking for! Its just makes it so much easier with children to be able to walk a few steps and be on a beautiful NOT CROWDED beach! Thanks again to the owner! We are so sad to be checking out in the morning!

                        If you are looking for a home style atmosphere and a pleasant stay, this is a great unit to rent. My husband and I scrambled to find a last minute condo during the holiday, and were pleased with the condo, location, and the quick responses from the owner. The condo was clean and comfortable, the complex and pool area were well maintained, and the unit had everything we needed. We took it as the 1 bdrm unit, but had the opportunity to view the connecting unit to make it a 3 bdrm and were quite impressed. Unique design, allowing for a generous amount of living space for vacation, whether used as a 1 or 3 bdrm unit. We will not hesitate to re-rent this condo in the future when visiting the Okaloosa/Destin area.

                      Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle:
                      The great floor plan is the main reason why we chose Emerald Isle . The sandy white beaches and the location of Fort Walton/ Destin make it such a wonderful place to call our 2nd home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Relaxing on the balcony, listening to the surf and watching the dolphins play. Enjoying the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Cooking on the grill while sitting by the pool with friends.
