About Bill or Terry

We're from the Atlanta area but love Destin! Have been coming down for years and love Emerald Shores!

Bill or Terry purchased this house in 1999

Why Bill or Terry chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

Emerald Shores has the perfect location! Walk to the beach and several restaurants along the beach! Centrally located between Destin Commons Mall and the Silver Sands Outlet Mall! Close to everything!

What makes this house unique

The most unique quality about Emerald Shores is our private beach cabana! No other neighborhood along this stretch of beach has one! Sure they have private beach accesses, but none have a cabana with lounge chairs, picnic tables, and restrooms! It's fantastic!

Stayed for a weekend with friends from Ft Rucker. Excellent service from the property managers and very reasonable pricing. Close to the beach and the nightlife in town.

I rented this house for 10 family members. There was enough room for all of us. It was only a block away from the large pool and walking distance from the ocean. Very relaxing.

Reviewer Comments:

We have rented many, many houses so we are very experienced renters. This was a great property. It would even be good for two families. There are three king bedrooms, plus pull-out couches if that is not enough. Two floors with two family rooms, you don't see that very often. But what I really liked was the kitchen. It had a big gas stove and a wonderful set of stainless steel pans. i like to cook and this kitchen had nearly everything. The rest of the appliances were all top notch as well. The neighborhood is tight and parking more than two cars would b e a problem, but it's a short walk to the beach and there are many good restaurants around plus nice shopping. The house was clean and nothing was broken. We had a very nice time.

Loved Serendipity!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this property for a family beach vacation and it was wonderful!!! There were 6 adults and 2 children and we had more than enough room. Everything was clean and neat. Quick walk to the beach! Close to lots of restaurants and shopping. Air stopped working one day and within hours it was fixed. Property managers were great to work with! Would definitely stay again!!!!

Overall the house was decent, but the floors were not clean when we arrived and the bathrooms are fairly small and not updated, considering the size of the house.

Owner's Response: Hmmm! Serendipity has a new kitchen with granite counters and fairly new upgraded appliances such as Bosch and Samsung. It also has a 60 inch plasma TV and new leather living room furniture just this Spring!! The bathrooms are more than adequate for a vacation rental! The hall bath upstairs has a shower but the other 2 bathrooms have big tubs and the master upstairs has a garden tub! As far as updates to the bathrooms, not sure what is expected but they are nice and functional. The house was inspected before check in. Very sorry the floor was dirty. It certainly didn't appear dirty and never heard that there was a problem. We are dedicated to providing a clean and comfortable rental for all our guests. If we had known there was a problem with the floor, we could have sent the cleaning crew back over. Very sorry you weren't completely satisfied.
