About Todd and Christina Hawkins

We live in the Nashville area but I am a Florida native, and we have always loved the Destin Beaches. We now have an opportunity to own and share a little piece of heaven.

Todd and Christina Hawkins purchased this condo in 2012

Why Todd and Christina Hawkins chose Florida North West

Emerald Towers is such a great spot - the people here are nice, the location is perfect, and since there are only around 80 units on the property, it isn't crowded like some other places. Plus, the staff at Emerald Towers really do a great job of keeping up the premises. Everything is always nice and clean.

What makes this condo unique

Destin Beaches, Pool, grilling area, location, and the condos are nicely laid out and comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

AMAZING first family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough nice things about this condo. The owners were excellent. They contacted us the day after checking in to make sure everything was to our liking. My daughter is not walking yet so I was very happy the condo was so clean that I felt comfortable enough to let her crawl around! The grill area is awesome! We grilled several times while we were there. The kitchen has absolutely everything you could need to cook a meal. Very nice pots and pans. We loved having a walk out on to the porch from the master suite so we could come and go silently without waking the baby in the next room. I honestly can not say enough great things about this condo. We truly can't wait to go back!

Love!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first visit to Destin and it was wonderful. The condo we rented from Todd and Christina Hawkins was fabulous! Beds were very comfortable and I slept great, which is saying a lot since normally I don't sleep well in hotel beds. Condo had everything we needed and then some. Loved having washer and dryer in condo, it did come in handy. Decorated very nice and the view is to die for!! Will definitely be staying here again!!!

Adult Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family consisting of 6 adults stayed at this condo in December 2016 between Christmas and NYE. It was extremely comfortable even for 6 adults, with more than enough bathroom, sleeping, and balcony sitting space. The owners had some beach toys/supplies available for our use and the condo had free chairs/umbrellas available on the beach. In December the pool and beach were not busy at all, the stay was quiet and there was plenty of parking.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at our condo - just to clarify, beach service is offered to guest for a fee from March 1st to October 31st. Since beach service does not operate in the winter months, Emerald Towers provides chairs and umbrellas to guest during that time.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

What a view! This place was exactly what my family and I were looking for. The master bedroom was huge and had breathtaking views. The kitchen was well stocked. The washer and drier was in the condo which was a huge plus too! The owners were friendly and attentive.

The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was the patio set. A nice counter height set would've improved the beautiful view. Don't get me wrong, what they have is doable! Will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us and for your review. My wife and I are actually bringing down a new set of patio furniture this weekend so future guest will be able to enjoy that. Thanks for the suggestion!
