Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you for allowing my sister and I to stay at your condo in Destin.

You have a very well decorated and equipped unit. The location of Emerald

Towers is perfect for dining and shopping in Destin. The premises are

secure and the pool and beach front are great. The problems encountered

initially with water temperature of the shower in the hall bathroom was

resolved on Tuesday morning by the building maintenance staff. All of

the Tower's staff were very helpful and friendly, especially Dan. Just two

minor suggestions for future guests stays: more than two trash bags are

needed in the unit for a week's stay and the electrical outlets in the

bathroom off the hallway and in the guest bedroom behind the nightstand

need to hold the plug in the socket. Once again, thank you, we enjoyed ourselves a lot. I hope to plan another trip back and will check to see if your unit is available if you

will have me.

July 2017 Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 experienced another excellent stay at this condo on the 5th floor of Emerald Towers. The owner(Greg) is very helpful and provides his personal contact information in the event there is an issue during your stay. The condo itself has a beautiful 5th floor view, close to all the main attractions in Destin, and it gated with nightly security for safety. The property is managed well and the beach area is not crowded, even during peak season. Definitely recommend.

The Only Place I Want To Be. 😍

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this our favorite place to stay on vacation, it is the ONLY 2 bedroom/2 bath condo you will ever find in Destin for the price! Hands Down!!!!! I LOVE this condo! It is just like home and the owner is one of the kindest and most accomodating people you will meet. This is the ONLY place I want to stay in Destin, and I am truly blessed when I get the chance to stay there, because it is understandably in high demand!

Would have been a 5 star if not for "off-gassing" new carpet. VOC fumes ruined it for us.

  • 1 of 5

We had the pleasure of taking a trip to the Gulf for Thanksgiving 2016. This unit was everything we wanted in a condo- spacious, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, Gulf views, the works. The condo is located conveniently in the heart of Destin- anything you need is a short walk or quick drive away. Unfortunately, our trip would have been perfect (and I would have nothing to complain about) if not for the fact that the owner had replaced the carpet the day before we arrived. We arrived to a closed up condo which smelled heavily of some sort of varnish. We didn't know, but found out after an email to the owner that it was the carpet that was off-gassing. The Environmental Protection Agency advises ventilating well for at least 72 hours after new carpet installation by opening windows, which we did... however we could not leave the windows in the 2nd bedroom open because it is adjacent to an exterior walkway. So, we could not use the 2nd bedroom at all. We had to seal it off and have our children sleep on the couch. There is a pull out sofa, but we chose not to use it because housekeeping failed to clean beneath the cushions and there was food particles on the bed. We left the master bedroom windows and both of the sliding doors open the ENITRE time we were there, and the off-gassing VOC fumes were still too much for me to handle, so I had to pull the mattress off of the 2nd bed and lay it on the living room floor to sleep on it. Thankfully we had good weather each day b/c if it had rained or been too cold, we would have had to close the windows. In that case, we would have had to end our stay early and gone home. Like I stated, the condo is wonderful and in a wonderful location, but I wish the owner would have notified us that new carpet was going in prior to our arrival. At minimum, no one should rent the condo until after 72 hours of airing out. Shame on him for renting it out the day after!!! My lungs still hurt even thinking about this stay. VOC fumes ruined it for us, and when contacting the owner about it- he seemed pretty unconcerned and suggested I vacuum. I would recommend this condo- but not until spring of 2017. The carpet should be done off-gassing by then.
