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.

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!

About Bill or Terry

We are from Pennsylvania but have been coming to Destin for years! We love it so well that we bought several pieces of Paradise!

Bill or Terry purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill or Terry chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

Emerald Shores is the best Vacation Home neighborhood along Scenic 98!

What makes this house unique

Emerald Shores is gated at both ends with easy access to the beach and HWY 98! The most unique feature is the private beach cabana with lounge chairs, picnic tables, and restrooms directly on the beach! No other neighborhood has one!

Reviewer Comments:

We rented this house in July and the family loved it. There was 14 of us and everybody was comfortable. The walk to the beach isn't to bad. I do wish they had a bigger wagon to carry everything but that is minor. I called because the battery in the smoke alarm was beeping and they came right out in just a few min. The house was supplied like it says. I can't say anything bad except maybe the driveway is to little for such a big house. We had 4 cars and we couldn't pull on the street so it was a struggle but we mad due.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall this was a great place to stay. Lot's of room for the our group of 9 people. The property is beautiful. We loved that there was a wagon to take to the beach as well as an easy up canopy. The walk to the beach was about 5 min but can seem long when dragging all the beach stuff with you. The trolley will not take you directly to the beach and was difficult to catch a ride. I would recommend this property get an ice machine which would have been a big plus. It was difficult to keep enough ice on hand and took up a lot of room in the freezer. Driveway was tight and the passengers had to exit into bushes (we drove a large pickup truck). When it rained this was a mess and you got wet from the bushes. The driveway also backed up with water after a big rain. When entering the house there was no light switch directly at the door you had to cross the room to switch it on. This made it very dark when entering at night. I would stay here again and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Reviewer Comments:

We really enjoyed the house and the location, however; we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the house. The reasons are as follows: 1. Found 3 huge dead cockroaches in a cabinet above the microwave 2. Found at least 10 long black hairs in the 3rd floor shower from previous visitors 3. Our children's feet were black after being barefoot on the 1st floor tile As for the condition of the home, it was good except for one of the seats on the dining room table was broken and completely came off the legs of the chair. Other than that, the house was very good.

Owner's Response: So sorry for the issues you had at this home. Wish we had been told early enough to resolve these for you. The overall satisfaction was rated a 4 so I hope things weren't as bad as they seem! Will send pest control over and check the chair.
