About Chris McIlwain

Bluewater Rental & Cleanings manages properties throughout Destin, FL.

Why Chris McIlwain chose Destin

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!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is lovely and worked out well for our stay. The only suggestions I would have for the owner, is to have better lighting in the 2nd bedroom. There are 2 nightstands with lamps but doesn’t give off much light at night if rummaging through luggage or what not. An extra mirror in the 2nd bedroom would also be helpful as the only mirror is the one above the vanity in the bathroom. Also the ceiling fan did not work.

A nice touch would be to have salt and pepper in the kitchen. Something we just assumed but didn’t realize until after we started cooking. We were missing the packet of coffee that was suppose to be there. Not a big deal but (as we got in late) it would have been nice to have in the morning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

The property is wonderfully maintained. We got more than we paid for and then some. The staff there is wonderful when it comes to assisting you. The boardwalk is amazing, so many activities & restaurants to visit. We will definitely come back to visit. Chris was the most amazing when it came to book, he explained everything to detail. He gave us his personal number which you don't find very often from people. I would say the overall best experience I have ever had in our years of traveling and my husband & I go twice a year now for 25 years. Thanks again Chris for all your assistance. The Swafford's
