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!

The property was well kept and secure. You can't beat the chair and umbrella rentals right on the beach. Will definitely be back.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice. We were a family of five, all females. So it was fine for us. Great location but as the season goes the beach was very crowded. Emerald Towers is between two other large condos which brings a lot of beach goers in the summer. I do suggest renting from the beach service and as early as you can. Destin Beach does not allow you to set up in front of the beach service. The owners are very nice and easy to contact.

Owner's Response: Thanks for being our guest! Yes, Destin has become the popular place, with it's sugar white beaches and emerald green water. What we love about Emerald Towers is that it is a smaller complex with a private beach so it doesn't get as crowded as the large complexes. And Henderson Beach State Park is very close and can provide more space if you need it.

Nice Condo, Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We experienced Destin for the first time this year. This condo is excellent! Very well maintained. We did not need anything from the owners during our stay, however, they checked in with us multiple times prior to and during our stay. Furniture was good, plenty of room. Condo was very clean. Beds were very comfortable. I have absolutely nothing to say negative about the condo or owners. Emerald Towers requires that you use the beach service, so no private umbrellas allowed. However, their beach is very nice, clean, and not over crowded at all.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words - I generally send a text to guest to make sure everything is good but try not to be intrusive. The beach umbrella policy seems to be at all of the condo beaches - however, guest can bring their own chairs. Destin is great and Emerald Towers does a good job of keeping everything nice.

Not what we planned on.

Check in was a nightmare. Unit was not cleaned.

Owner's Response: This review came from the wife - This guest took over a reservation that had been changed and while I changed the info on the VRBO site I had not changed it at the condo check-in, which was my mistake. I called and talked to the husband to apologize and he said while there was some initial confusion, the front desk figured it out and checked them in. He said everything else about the stay was great and he appreciated my call. He said nothing about the cleanliness of the unit and other recent reviews have commented on the unit being clean.
