Your family will have a great beach vacation in Destin, Florida, when staying at PALMETTO PALMS, which is on the first beach street in the subdivision. This extensively remodeled three story luxury vacation home is located approximately 125 yards from the beach (2-3 minute walk) and is only four houses away from the neighborhood pool within the EMERALD SHORES subdivision, a gated beach ownership community! EMERALD SHORES is the only residential community in Destin that has a private beach pavilion with restrooms, outdoor showers, beach service and it's very own Cabana Cafe' & Bar! This eliminates having to go back to the home for potty breaks, or to rinse off the kids or to just get a bite to eat with a cold beverage. It's all available at the Emerald Shores beach pavilion!
The home has a spacious 2700 square feet of living area complete with a 51" LCD, a large side yard, and features high-end travertine stone and exotic granite both inside and out.

Covered balconies and porches are located off all bedrooms and living areas. Partial gulf views are available from the balconies!

The home boasts two mega-sized King Master Suites with large sitting areas to spread out (1st & 3rd floors). Both have queen futon sleepers, perfect for extra tv watching space for the kids or to just have some extra privacy. Two additional bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor, which share a bathroom. This is a great set-up for multiple families with the Master bedrooms providing extra living and sleeping areas for big groups. The 3rd Floor wet bar with fridge is perfect for morning coffee. Each bedroom has a private covered balcony or porch area and opens up to soak in our wonderful Gulf breezes. Sit out on one of the balconies or porches and read a good book or just kick back and relax while sipping on a frothy cold libation.
Your family will have ample room to lounge around in a tropical paradise. The home is located on the first beach street cul-de-sac in the neighborhood and is a very short walk to the beach, to the large heated community pool, to onsite tennis or beach restaurants.PALMETTO PALMS has free wireless high-speed internet access (wireless 802.11n, g or b). Why settle for an entire week of that cramped condo feeling when you could be stretching out and enjoying all of the pleasures and domestic comforts of being in your own home while vacationing at the beach! An array of amenities is at your doorstep. Several Gulf-Front Seafood Restaurants are even within walking distance of the home.

My family had a wonderful time staying at this property July 2016. Plenty of room, nice location. Jay was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early. We have stayed at their other properties and have always been happy with the accommodations.
Great Family Vacation home
We had a family of 9 people and the house certainly accommodated us all very nicely. Decor was warming and with granite counters and appliances. Perfect location for a short walk to the beach and restaurants. There were beach toys available for the kids. Jay was nice enough to help fix the cable on 2nd floor . Overall we had a great time and will be back with more family and friends.
Perfect Palmetto Palms Vacation

We just returned from a perfect vacation in Palmetto Palms! There were many of us- babies, young children, adults. Plenty of space for different families to get away from one another if needed and plenty of gathering space for everyone. The house is beautifully decorated. Beds were very comfortable. The kitchen holds everything you need from plates to pots and pans, coffee makers, cooking utensils. The whole process of renting the house is very simple and Jay and Betty got back to me very quickly with any questions I had. We would definitely return to this house. Wish we were there now!
Fabulous Place

Jay and Betty were very accommodating! I appreciated the very prompt responses to my emails and questions and appreciated the thorough responses even more! They even made sure I had a keurig to make my stay complete! Fabulous property with the perfect location! We were talking about returning before we left! Highly recommended!!!
Repeat Performance at Palmetto Palms
This was our second time to vacation with our son & daughter & their children at this residence, and we all had a wonderful time. We can't imagine coming to Destin & not staying at this residence. We were thrilled when Jay called to say we had access to the house earlier than expected. Although the house is equipped with everything imaginable, I could have used an apron for cooking. Loved our stay & hope to be back soon!!
We were very impressed with this property. We could tell immediately upon arrival that you take great pride in your properties. If we come back to Destin we will definitely look at your properties. Can't think of anything more you can do. We loved it !!
Incredible Home
Our family of 11 loved this beautiful home. Everything we needed was included. We rented 2 golf carts which took us to the beach, the pool, the Harbor and every restaurant we ate at. The outside shower was the bomb for the kids. So easy to bathe them there. Thanks to Jay for helping us out with all questions we had.
Another great stay.
We had another great family week at Destin for Thanksgiving 2018. With the rental of about 7 houses, we had 64 family members total. We love staying at Emerald Shores because it is a gated community without thru traffic and the houses fill each families needs. Many thanks to Jay and Betty for their hospitality and Jay's quick response should we need anything. We have stayed in this house, Palmetto Palms, so many times, it feels like our home away from home. We have already booked for 2019 and look forward to our 30th year celebrating family and Thanksgiving at Emerald Shores, Destin.
Love the home!
We have stayed at several of Jay and Betty's homes and Palmetto Palms is our favorite! Jay and Betty are very accomodating and excellent with communication. They go above and beyond to make sure you're happy and your stay in enjoyable. All their homes are beautiful and have great proximity to the beach. The homes have everything you could need and more. We will definitely be back!
We love Palmetto Palms!
We always love our trip to Destin and staying at Pametto Palms..We have rented this home from Jay and Betty for many years. The website makes it so easy to reserve the home and has indepth information that answers any questions you might have regarding the area, home, etc. Emerald Shores is a gated community and very close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. The complex pools are also really nice with plenty of chairs and tables.. Palmetto Palms is very clean, comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need to prepare meals for your family, We always enjoy our stay. and this year was no exception. I wish we could have stayed longer but alas, the real world came calling. :) Highly recommend any of Jay and Betty's homes, you WILL enjoy your home away from home..
Palmetto Palms is Wonderful
We stayed in this same rental 7 years ago and decided to come back this year! Everything was perfect! We had 2 families of 4 this time (4 children and 4 adults) There was plenty of space for us to all spread out. The home was fully equipped with everything we might need! The location was perfect! This is the 3rd time we have stayed in one of Gulf911 properties and they NEVER disappoint! Thank you for sharing your home with us! We all had an enjoyable time and made many memories this trip! We will be back!!
Another great stay!
My family looks so forward to our stay at Palmetto Palms. It fits our family well and everyone feels "at home" in this house. We had a little one this year so it was nice that the house provides a PackNPlay. It gave us an extra naptime place downstairs. We also love that this house has a yard area. Thanks to Jay, Betty, and Josh for ensuring that everything is always taken care of. See you in 2021.
Another Wonderful Vacation
We have spent the last three years vacationing in Emerald Shores and love it. The neighborhood is beautifully landscaped and the homes we have stayed in (Coconut Cove and Palmetto Palms) have been very well appointed and lovely! We always find great people to talk to and truly love everything about this area! Plus we can walk to our favorite restaurant, Kenny D's!!!! Looking forward to many more vacations in emerald shores:)
Great Times!
House was just as described. Beds were comfortable. Loved the showers inside.. and the shower outside was handy. Would definitely stay here again. Has no open cabinet for food storage is only real drawback if your looking for one.
Love these properties!
We’ve stayed at one of the Gulf911 properties pretty consistently for 13 years or more and we are NEVER disappointed! The homes are decorated beautifully and they have supplied just about everything you need, down to wagons to carry your things to the beach....and even things for the kids to play with at the beach! Jay, Betty, and Josh are very accommodating and do their best to make sure you’re happy. Thank you for yet another great stay!
Perfect for family!
We loved being so close to the beach and took daily walks along the ocean and we enjoyed having our own locked gateway with bathrooms to the beach. The Emerald Shores community is gated and super friendly, and we felt very comfortable and safe during our stay of two months. The house was perfect for our family and friends who came to visit and provided enough room for everyone to have their own space. The decor was nicely done and the mattresses very comfortable. It was also great to have our dog with us as she's family! We would definitely stay again.
