We are the owners of this fourth floor 2 BR 2BA condo in Emerald Isle Beach Club. Our unit (410) has direct Gulf views from the living room, master bedroom, and balcony. Imagine waking up each day to see the beautiful Gulf water and white sandy beach. Check out the pictures to see the exact views from our condo (click for full-size with captions). A quick walk along the building brings you to the large beachside swimming pool, private boardwalk to the sand and surf, picnic patio with charcoal grills, tennis court, and the gorgeous white sugar-sand beach of the Emerald Coast.
The entire Emerald Isle complex underwent a year-long major renovation in 2016 with all new doors, windows, paint, elevators and amenities that include laundry rooms that accept Credit Cards. In addition, we have made major upgrades to our unit that include new living room furniture, flat-screen digital TVs in living room and both bedrooms, new cable channels, ceiling fans in living room and both bedrooms, a remodeled kitchen, remodeled master bath with walk-in tiled shower, and new vanities in both bathrooms.
Emerald Isle, with just 70 units, is family friendly as well as welcoming to snowbirds. Our unit says "beach vacation" the minute you step in. This all tiled condo has high speed internet, king bed in master bedroom, queen bed in 2nd BR; LR includes 50" flat screen wall-mounted TV plus VCR/DVD player. The sleeper sofa in the LR opens to make a queen bed, and we have a 4" thick foam "topper" that can be added for additional comfort. Our kitchen is fully furnished. Beach service (large umbrella and 2 chairs) is included with the unit from March 1-Oct 31 and is set up for you on the beach each day. The beautiful pool is heated in March and April, and in October and November.
Sliding doors from the living room and master bedroom provide access to the balcony that overlooks the Gulf. A small patio table and 4 chairs plus a chaise lounge provide a relaxing spot to spend some leisure time, listen to the waves, have your morning coffee, and watch for dolphins (a common sight).

Downtown Fort Walton Beach and a shopping mall are only 10 minutes away, Publix Grocery is 3-1/2 miles from the condo, and a Tom Thumb convenience store is within walking distance.
