Destination - Destin FL Vacation Home in Emerald Shores

Emerald Shores Vacation Rental House in Destin, FL


Welcome to "Destination", our Destin Florida 4 bedroom vacation rental home in Emerald Shores. We just finished a major renovation of our entire home. We enlisted an outstanding interior designer to rework all the rooms from brand new stainless steel appliances, new bedding, new dinning room furniture and paint and a whole host of new decorations. We now have three King Beds, one Queen, one Twin over Twin bunk bed, one Queen sleep sofa and two Twin sleep sofas.

Would return!
Our family along with our friends from Belgium stayed one week in August 2011. The accomodations were just what we needed for 8 people: ample room for gathering together as well as for privacy, well-stocked kitchen, ample hot water for multiple showers, easy short walk to the beach, excellent A/C. We enjoyed walking the beach to both Pompano Joes and the Crab Shack for food and drinks. We have vacationed in Destin many times but this was the first time with our Belgium friends and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. Would definitely return! Thanks so much!! PS/ The pictures of the new decorating that occurred after our visit look beautiful!
Great house!
We stayed here during April 2011. It perfectly suited our family's needs. There were only 5 of us, so there was plenty of space for each child to have their own room and for everyone to spread out. The house was very clean and met all of our expectations. The hammock was a favorite place to read a book. Walking to the beach only takes a few minutes, and the Emerald Shores pavilion is a huge plus to this property, adding the convenience of beach bathrooms. We love the pictures of the new updates that have just recently been done. If "Destination" were still available, we would have booked it again for Spring Break 2012.
Good house for a big family
Pros: This was our first multi-family vacation. This home had plenty of room for 5 adults and 7 children. This home is less than a block from the beach. The private pavilion was an excellent addition to our stay. The house had plenty of games for the kids to play and beach floats, noodles, shovels, and wagons. Everyone in the home took advantage of the 2nd floor balcony hammock. Cons: On our first night, the A/C would not work. We called the front office and she said she would send someone around. No one came to check or fix the A/C unit. We called back numerous times that night because the heat on the first floor was unbearable. The next morning, we had to call the management again and around 12 noon an A/C maintenance man arrived and fixed the air. The first night was quite uncomfortable. The water pressure in the home is very low. We had to run the dishwasher numerous times on one load. We had to run the dryer 5 times to dry one set of towels. Also, we had planned to grill on vacation because patio grill was listed as an amenity but in order to use the grill you have to pay an extra 35.00 for someone to come clean it when you leave. By far our families number 1 complaint/con, is that our last night together as a family we were not able to go out to dinner or do any other activity because we had to meet the "CLEANING" mandates that were set for us. We spent all of Friday evening trying sweep all floors, wash all towels, put the trash out, wash and put up all dishes. It was a lot of stress for us on the last night of our vacation to make sure we were not charged an extra $100 dollars an hour. For the price that we paid to stay for a week, you would think that a "cleaning" service would be provided. "Cleaning" is also listed as an amenity but be prepared to spend your last night meeting all the requirements for check out. This was by far the worst part of our stay. Overall, we had a wonderful time in Destin and this house met most of our needs. We probably will not book this home again. We will be looking for homes that provide a full cleaning service. You live and you learn.
