About Chris McIlwain

Bluewater Rental & Cleanings manages properties throughout Destin, Fl.

Why Chris McIlwain chose Florida North West

We work with the top properties in Destin, Fl and Emerald Grande is the best! We know our guests will love this resort and we strive to have the same families staying with us year after year.

What makes this condo unique

Unparalleled views of Destin Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. Zero entry pool with the best pool deck in Destin. Indoor heated pool for rainy days. A great workout room with everything you need to stay fit on vacation. Harborwalk Village is just below resorts so shops, restaurants, and water activities are just steps away! And the beach you are taken to by boat (most guests see dolphins during the ride over) is the best in Destin, Fl!

Fantastic Condo & Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at this perfectly located condo - so much for everyone in our group to do within walking distance. We have stayed at multiple Destin condos in the past but never had breath taking views like this. We'll definitely be staying in this unit every year going forward.

Owner's Response: Our apologies for the inconvenience - The resort had a boiler go out that caused everyone to have limited hot water. The issue was resolved and everything went back to normal.

I will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

The Emerald Grande and Harbor Walk are absolutely great! Not going to beat the value you get staying here. The condo is awesome, spacious and comfortable. The one negative about this particular room we knew going into the stay was that it does not have sunrise or sunset views from its balcony, however, you have a great view of the pool and harbor with boat traffic that is fun to watch in the early hours and the short walk to the adult pool deck has a great view of the sunset if you want that. Place is great for young kids and teenagers. We had (2) 16 years olds and a 5 year old with us during our stay.

Highly recommend renting wave runners in the Bay, doing the dolphin cruise with the SeaBlaster (booze cruise for adults), Pirate ship was great for kids. Be sure to sit on pool deck for Fireworks and stick around for Mardi Gras night with the floats!!! The best place we ate all week was at Stinky's Fish Camp, slight drive but worth the food! Thanks again for letting us stay and we will be coming back hopefully sooner than later. Communication with Chris was easy and no issues on VRBO side of things. Highly recommend to anyone looking.
