"Just got home from a great week staying at Emerald Surf!! Pictures are spot on - great view from Master bedroom and living room area - as well as of the sound across from kitchen window! Pool area very clean and water is warm. Beach - can't say enough - sand is like powdered sugar! Parking on site under building - even had a car wash area. The balcony is very large off both bed and living area as well - spent most of our time out there when we were in the building. Nice to have washer/dryer on site and upgraded kitchen was wonderful - although we took the opportunity to sample all the local cuisine! Restaurants / grilles in area were great. Short drive to Pensacola to watch the Blue Angels practice - unbelievable! Same drive the other direction and you are in Fort Walton/Destin area for more touristy fun and shopping. Love the fact that Navarre is more quiet - great pier area with great fishing too. Five stars is not enough for our time - again, don't pass up staying in this place!!!"

"Our family stayed at this condo the week of May 2, 2015 through the 9th. I searched and searched for months and this was the first condo that really caught my eye and I'm so glad I came back to it and booked it. It was truly AMAZING! We loved the condo, it was spacious and gorgeous and the location couldn't be beat. Originally I thought about staying on the ocean side but was so glad to have chosen the bay side. I enjoyed the sunrise on the bay every morning and walking the dock in the evening to see what critters might be in the waters. The condo had a huge deck, just steps from what felt to be your own personal pool and a hot tub that was so close to the water, you felt like you were in it. The weather could not have been better and this time of year, there was no traffic but just enough people around that you could enjoy the company of others if you are a people person. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner and she was incredible and made us feel right at home. This was our first full family vacation at the beach and I'm not sure anything will ever come close to it. I have never felt so relaxed nor have I ever had so much fun. The Seablaster sunset dolphin cruise is a must (if you like free wine and beer) and a pontoon to Crab Island was wonderful as well. Before bringing the pontoon back to the dock, we took a spin in the bay only to come up on a pod of dolphins. The feeling was incredible. We can't wait to come back and would book again for next year but my oldest son will be away in Europe; so we may wait a year. Long winded - but I just can't say enough good things about this condo, the location and the owner!"

"This condo is fully stocked and has everything you could ask for in accommodations! Great views, décor, supplies, etc. The owners were excellent to work with and helped make our stay wonderful. Portofino has so much to offer in amenities and activities which created an amazing vacation, and this condo made it even better!"

"We love this unit. It's the perfect location with being on the second floor right over the entrance to the beach and pool. Just high enough to have a fabulous view of the gulf with Palm trees at eye level. The unit was tastefully decorated and very clean. We had our two adult children who didn't mind the bunk beds. Everyone had a great time and we would definitely recommend this unit."
