Pour a glass of wine or mix a cocktail at the separate beverage bar with ice maker to enjoy while relaxing on the balcony.

Emerald Towers is situated in the heart of Destin near many restaurants and 'The Back Porch' is just a short walk down the beach, and a few hundred feet past that is the Henderson Beach State Park with over a mile of natural beaches - great for longer stolls or jogs.

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

The condo was very nice just like the pictures showed. It was decorated nicely and very comfortable. The view from balcony and master bedroom was excellent. I would stay here again. The owners are very nice and easy to work with. We had a great week here!

Great Location in Destin; Top Notch Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay for the week! It was an easy check in. The condo's kitchen and wet bar were updated, as well as the living room. Great TVs in both bedrooms and living room. The only semi-negative was the mattresses were somewhat soft.

Outstanding!!!

This was our first experience with a VRBO, nothing but great experiences. The views were amazing, accommodations comfortable, convenient location. We fished from Destin (Swoop), and were able to grill our fresh catch. Recommend this stay!!

I am a long time patron of Emerald Towers. First time for this unit, 905.

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Towers was well maintained as always. The unit has been redone and is beautiful. I love that there is no carpet in the living area. The kitchen is the best equipped that we have ever stayed in (15+ years). The owner called to check on the status of some items which I thought was very considerate. I really liked this unit and will book whenever I can!

Outdated except for the gym.

  • 3 of 5

The staff were wonderful. The pool is very small. The grills broke and we were unable to cook. Too small of an area to put up a tent on the beach. Renters should be allowed to put up tents behind the rental company. Elevators were down on multiple days and the wait was very long for the one working elevator. We were very disappointed in the condo. it was not cleaned properly. The floors were dirty and there was makeup on the towels. The cleaning company should be reviewed.
