Emerald Towers Beach
The condo was perfect, but you are not allowed your own beach chairs on the beach you either have to sit behind the rented chairs or off to the side. The "attendant" asked if we were with those people - pointing to empty chairs??? We weren't rude by sitting in front of people - we sat along the edge of the water where no one was sitting and were still told we had to move. None of the other properties around us had this "rule".
The view was everything shown in the photos and more! Location was perfect for relaxing and unit had a well furnished kitchen.
Only suggestions: note the tough sliding door to open (we made do), info on operating TVs (we figured it out), and small repairs to ceiling fans.
Overall, well worth it and highly recommend.
Pros: fantastic views from the balcony, private beach well taken care of, pure white soft sand, comfortable beds with tv’s in each room with cable, centrally located lots of nearby amenities.
Cons: had a difficult time getting past the gate upon arrival because VRBO sent the wrong passcode, condo desparetly needs updating especially in the bathrooms, no basic kitchen cooking supplies such as salt and pepper, unable to use our own beach chairs or shade structure on the beach, lots of seaweed and jellyfish in the water but I guess that was just bad timing, neighborhood was too busy and too commercialized.
Overall I love the beach at Destin but would prefer to stay somewhere less commercialized.
August 2019 Family Beach Trip
This was our first trip to Destin and the grandkids’ first beach trip. The unit was comfortable and had everything we needed. Beach access was quick and easy. The sliding glass door to the balcony from the living area was difficult to open and shut. We ended up using the door from the master bedroom to access the balcony. The ice maker only worked sporadically but neither of these issues prevented us from enjoying our stay. I would stay here again if we return to Destin.
The view & beach cannot be beat! The building was in a good location, beach was well-maintained, and the pool/grill area was also clean and convenient. We already knew about renting chairs/umbrellas on the beach, and it was great not having to lug all that to the beach every day. There were some issues in the condo- leaky fridge, patio door very difficult to move, etc. but I spoke with the front desk (?) and they sent maintenance up. The fridge/freeezer would need to be defrosted (we declined- not on my vacation agenda), but they came and lubed the patio door which helped some. Considering the price of “hotels” nowhere near the beach, with just a room/bathroom, this was an amazing value. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The view from the balcony was exactly what we wanted. Saw dolphins most mornings. We would absolutely stay in this unit again.
Emerald Towers review
Overall it was great. There are a few things that need attention. The microwave does not always work - some of the buttons don’t work. The DVD player in the living room has a malfunctioning eject button.
