About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy this large, roomy condominium (1200 sq. ft.) with easy access to both pool and beach. Ideal location for those who want to keep an eye on the kids at the pool from the privacy of your own patio just steps away. This pool-side patio with private, grassy area offers protected play area for young children where you can sit and relax with your favorite summer drink. Return to the kitchen only steps away for a quick lunch or to refill that pina colada. Our private boardwalk offers access to the beautiful, white-sand beach and a viewing area to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets. The on-premises tennis court is also easily accessible.

Each room is tastefully decorated. The master bedroom is lovely with its king-sized bed and access to the patio. The two queen-sized beds in the guest room are cozy and comfortable.

Okaloosa Island is five minutes to Destin with all of its many attractions, yet this lovely location is quiet and away from the traffic of the maddening crowd. Within walking distance to the new pier and boardwalk, yet far enough away to maintain its natural charm.

Your vacation at Emerald Isle will be a memorable one for you and your family.

Was a clean and large condo

  • 5 of 5

We liked the condo and it was roomy. It's very close to the beach and pool. There is no view of the beach and only a limited view of the pool since the condo is similar to a garden apartment view. Otherwise we liked this condo.

Owner's Response: Dear Ted & Joy Bate, Thank you for your honest review of our condo. We believe that what it lacks in the view department is made up by the convenience of it's location. Our unit tends to be very popular with families with small children and also elderly grandparents as it is the closest unit to the beach and the pool. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Beatrice Loftus

Perfect beach experience

  • 5 of 5

Condo was right next to the pool (heated) and the pool was right next to the beach. The pictures are spot on. Although I was staying at the condo for something other than vacation, it was a great stay. Beatrice was fantastic to work with, any questions or concerns I had were met nearly instantly. The Emerald Isle is a short drive, uber, or walk from the big party action but far enough away to keep your stay relaxing.

Ft. Walton Beach

  • 4 of 5

Emerald Isle (July 11-18, 2015).

This condo unit is right on Ft. Walton Beach with easy access to the pool and a private beach area. Although the owner was not on the site, we were able to contact Beatrice, the owner, with ease. Beatrice takes pride in her rental property, and she was very quick to work with us. She was accommodating and helpful. Thank you, Beatrice.

Could have been better....

  • 2 of 5

Beatrice was very nice and easy to talk with. However...the first day we got there we were told a new refrigerator would be delivered later that day. We felt this was a BIG inconvenient. Our food was already in the refrigerator, we wanted to go to the beach and didn't really want someone (?) taking our food out and handling it and believe it takes 24 hours for the refrigerator to get cold with food in it. And...then we were told they were coming to replace some glass in the glass door that had been broke. We come up from the beach to get something to find the glass out of 2 of the panels, curtains blowing in the wind and no one around. Since this is on ground level and there is access to the back entrance, anyone could have walked in. Our belongings were in there and we thought the doors were locked!!! The screen to the door never was was up against the pool wall. The grass was not cut in the little yard/ Trouble with the pool so people were working on the pool in our back area with an electric cord strung across the grass area. So happy I brought a pan to bake the cake in, the one in the unit was nasty. I had to clean to coffee maker and electric can opener before I could us it. I guess you get what you pay for. If your looking for a bargain, the price is right.

Owner's Response: I find this review to be in need of explanations. The refrigerator delivery was scheduled between check out and check in time so that this guest would have a new fridge with a working ice maker as the ice maker stopped working in the old fridge. What she failed to note was that she was given an early check in time as she had requested. As for the other maintenance issues she mentions, fixing a broken window and pool repairs, these are out of our control. Just goes to show how well Emerald Isle takes care of any problems that arise. Kitchen utensils and appliances are replaced periodically and this being the end of the rental season, housekeeping will be addressing these needs. We are sorry if this guest found the pan and coffee maker not to her satisfaction, however as she stated we offer a very affordable rate. A check of our rental calendar and other reviews will verify that we have many happy customers.

Love Emerald Isle

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO. It was well worth it. Beatrice was very helpful and a pleasure talking to. We loved the condo. It was large & roomy & nicer than expected. It had everything we could ask for. It was very clean and right by the pool & beach. My 16 y.o. son & his friend loved having their own beds. The beds all were very comfy. i felt right at home. I made several friends with owners at Emerald Isle. Very nice people. I would love to own a place there. Be sure and eat at Stewby's Seafood Shanty when you visit the island, best seafood in the area & very reasonable. We would rent this condo again.
