About Bill or Terry

We are from Missouri and have come to Destin for years! We love Emerald Shores! The location cannot be beat! Other family members have owned their own vacation home here for several years and we wanted one too!

Bill or Terry purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill or Terry chose Miramar Beach

Emerald Shores is centrally located between the Destin Commons Mall and the Silver Sands Outlet Mall. We have access from both HWY 98 and Scenic Gulf Drive. Getting around is easy! We can walk to the beach and several restaurants along the beach!

What makes this house unique

Emerald Shores has a private beach pavilion with restrooms, lounge chairs, and picnic tables! No other neighborhood has one along this stretch of beach! Our neighborhood is gated and we have 2 pools, a tennis court, and a basketball goal!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had my wedding on the private beach of Emeald Shores and had my family stay at the house afterwards. This house is amazing.... It's well decorated tons of beds! Right across from the pool!!! And a three minute walk to the beach! We couldn't have been more satisfied. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you would need. The workers at Crystal Waters were so helpful and even let us check out a few hours after we were supposed to. This was an amazing experience. AND the wedding of my dreams..... We plan on coming back here for anniversaries and we wil definitely use CRYSTAL WATERS. ALSO the pictures done so it justice. This house is spectacular. I would live in it if I could. Thanks for helping make my wedding perfect!!

Had a lovely stay with my relatives. The house was very accommodating for all of us. Everything that we could have needed was provided for. The short walk to beach was nice. The pool being right across the street was very convenient for us with the kids. Over all it was a great experience.

The owner was fantastic and understanding about adding a pet last minute to our reservation and were very prompt with their responses. Also the dryer malfunctioned and they had a brand new one delivered and installed within an hour. That’s incredible customer service! Cable TV in every single room including the breakfast room! Great place and great location right across from the heated pool and short walk to the beach! Thanks again for a great experience!

If you have tried to book a condo for golfers you know how hard it is to find something reasonably priced with at least 8 beds. This one is it, we had a great time and everyone had a bed, no pullout couch needed. Will definitely book again.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

This was an upgrade over our original rental, as the AC unit for that house broke before we arrived. The property managers were very professional and helpful. The house was clean and comfortable. The back porch is more storage area than a sitting area, but it worked for us as the kids made use of the floats and beach toys.
