The Emerald Grande and Harbor Walk are absolutely great! Not going to beat the value you get staying here. The condo is awesome, spacious and comfortable. The one negative about this particular room we knew going into the stay was that it does not have sunrise or sunset views from its balcony, however, you have a great view of the pool and harbor with boat traffic that is fun to watch in the early hours and the short walk to the adult pool deck has a great view of the sunset if you want that. Place is great for young kids and teenagers. We had (2) 16 years olds and a 5 year old with us during our stay. Highly recommend renting wave runners in the Bay, doing the dolphin cruise with the SeaBlaster (booze cruise for adults), Pirate ship was great for kids. Be sure to sit on pool deck for Fireworks and stick around for Mardi Gras night with the floats!!! The best place we ate all week was at Stinky's Fish Camp, slight drive but worth the food! Thanks again for letting us stay and we will be coming back hopefully sooner than later. Communication with Chris was easy and no issues on VRBO side of things. Highly recommend to anyone looking.
We stayed for 4 nights in this beauty. Our only regret was that we wished we had booked it for longer. The condo was very well appointed and clean. The view from the balcony was absolutely breath taking. The rooms were perfect. My 9 year old daughter loved the bunks. It was like her own little hideout. The bed in the master was very comfortable and there were plenty of pillows to accommodate each persons preference. The condo had several extra touches added that made it even better. They had liquid soap in all the bathrooms, beauty wipes, scope, dial soap bars, and lotions. I was pleased to see a keurig machine as well. Next time I will have to remember to bring my Dunkin'. The booking process was very simple. Chris was extremely helpful, friendly, and professional. She gave us several recommendations of places to eat and activities to do in the area. Overall, an absolutely pleasant stay. We will definitely have to come back as soon as we can.
Everything we were looking for and more! Pool, bar and the restaurant was fabulous, quiet gem. The Destin harbor boardwalk great food, shopping and the beverages. Don't forget to use the water taxi to expand your range of restaurants. The unit is really comfortable and a great place to Relax!
I just returned from my "stay-cation" at the Emerald Grande 522, and it was everything I had hoped for. The views from balconies were beautiful, especially from the master bedroom. The living room balcony has a direct view to the amenities building, but once you go out onto the balcony you have a nice view of the pool and ocean. You have the sun shining onto the balconies for the majority of the day which made it nice. The unit had brand new living room furniture which was comfortable. The kitchen had everything I needed, including basic spices for dinner left over from previous guests. The bed in the master was a dream. The overview says the guest room has a queen sized bed, but it looked like another king size to me. The owners choose not to participate the in room service-meaning you don't provide a credit card at check in- so just know you have to pay with a credit card each time. No complaints at all. I even enjoyed the spa services. The staff, as always, was amazing and helpful...This is my third stay-cation at the Emerald Grande, and I'll do it again. Book it. You won't be disappointed.
This unit is fabulous. Great views of the gulf,and sunsets to die for. Chris was fantastic as always, making everything easy,and always there if you need anything. Unit 522 is where you want to be. This was our 2nd time in this unit and you can't go wrong. BIG 55" curved tv,comfy beds and a new keurig coffee maker. What more do you need. Thanks Chris for your hospitality!!!! We will be back😉 Danielle G Fairhope Al
We recently stayed at the Emerald Grande in Destin, FL, room 522. The room itself is spectacular! It was very clean and well appointed. Bluewater Rental and Cleanings did a great job of making sure everything was perfect for our stay. Everything in the condo was top-notch, from the granite countertops to the luxurious spa shower in the master bath. The bed in the master bedroom was by far the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on during a vacation. The sheets were so incredibly soft! It inspired us to buy a resort-quality bamboo sheet set from the Cariloha store on the Harbor Walk Village during our trip. We will definitely be back!
We just got back from a one week vacation in Destin and we stayed in unit #522 at Emerald Grande. The unit is beautiful and the property is very well maintained. The view of the harbor is lovely, especially in the evening and the location can't be beat. Condo has everything you could possibly need. We will definitly be back again.
My family and I took advantage of the long Valentine weekend to getaway to the Gulf Coast and had a terrific stay at this property. The place is immaculate and one thing that really stood out is that the bed in the master was extremely comfortable. My wife is still hounding me to find out where they got the sheets :). This unit has great views of both the pool and Gulf and is in a perfect location to restaurants and activities. Another thing that I really appreciated was the communication from the owner. He promptly provided directions, instructions for check in and follow up, even called to let me know we could check in earlier...thank you Chris! We will definitely be coming back.
We were fortunate enough to book this unit for a couple months this winter. From the view and doing nothing on the patio to the exercise room, where you wish you were back on the patio, to all the other amenities and easy access to all things Destin, Chris didn't miss represent the condo or the hotel. We had a van load of stuff and arrived late in the day. The bell captain met us at check-in, positioned everything in our room, and helped us park the car for the easiest access to our room. The rest of the staff was just as friendly and Chris was minutes away if we needed anything. A great trip with no surprises. We will return.
What another wonderful New Years at the emerald grande. Chris ,I want to thank you for your patience with me. This unit is beautiful. Beds are comfy,plenty of space and best of all the view of the waters. Nothing like sitting on one of the 2 balconies with a good cup of coffee in the morning and a toddy in the evening watching the Dolphins and the breath taking view of the sunsets. You can't go wrong with this unit. I highly recommend. Chris thank you for making a fabulous getaway very special.
Great! More than we expected. Management very professional. Very well decorated. Beds were comfortable. Great view. Location is perfect. The boat ride to private island is great. No need to pay for Dolphin sight seeing. You can see Dolphins from Island and boat ride over. Pools are nice. Plenty of great restaurants. If you want a waterfront vacation, this is the place to go.
The view from the condo is breath taking loved watching the boats going in and out of the harbor The pool area reminded me of being on a cruise. We were waited on and made to feel special. Restaurants and shops were walking distance away so no need to drive. The condo was furnished nicely and comfortable . Enjoyed the music poolside.We definitely want to come back. Highly recommend staying there.
The condo was absolutely perfect for our family. It was very tastefully decorated and furnished. The beds were very comfortable, and everyone slept well. We never heard any noise from condos above us, or next to us, sooooo quiet! The views from the balconies were amazing. Would definitely recommend this condo to anyone!!! We will definitely be back!
First of all, I would like to thank the wonderful property manager. You are really organized and must have a wonderful employees. Our stay was wonderful! It was so nice to walk into this beautiful condo. Everything was meticulously cleaned, and great attention was payed to the small things. Even our rags were folded special. The room was stocked with amenities so, we didn't have to purchase anything extra. The location of the room has to be one of the most gorgeous views in Destin. I couldn't imagine ever renting another room in Emerald Grande. We appreciate all of the effort that went into making this our best vacation. We will be back.
Our first time staying at this condo. We loved it! Coming back in April for Spring Break with our teenagers. The beds were so comfortable. The location of this place couldn't be better. We only had to make one trip out in the car, and that was to get groceries. The boat shuttle to the beach was great. Having the beach chair service being included is a really nice bonus. The views off the balconies were good. Everything was top notch. It was really tough to leave to go home.
I cannot say enough good things about this place. Check in was smooth. Staff very helpful and friendly. Condo had a beautiful view from 2 balconies. Gorgeous bathrooms, great linens, etc. Harborwalk is so convenient and you never have to leave the property! We spent a lot of time at the pool. Excellent pool service for drinks and snacks. Beach shuttle was prompt and staff was on point. The water at the beach crystal clear. My daughter especially loved the bunk beds in the third bedroom. Gave her a space with privacy. We cannot wait to go back!!
This was our first time staying in Destin and what a great pick this was!!! We loved every minute of our stay here. We didn't want to leave!!! The view from the balconies was amazing, the condo was beautiful and so much more than we expected. There was shopping and restaurants directly behind us on the harborwalk. The Emerald Grande had Great Service from the moment we checked in and Great amenities.The kids loved the indoor and outdoor pools, we loved that we could order food and drinks while lounging poolside. We also loved the shuttle service to the private beach where we were given beach towels to use and lounge chairs & canopies were already set up for us to use. Thank you Chris, We will definitely be returning to stay here again!!!
I want to first THANK YOU (CHRIS) for being so nice in working with me to book such a fabulous vacation and a beautiful condo. We just got back and I wanted to email you letting you know that the condo is very nice with one of the BEST breathtaking views from the balcony that I have ever had in DESTIN. The pictures do no justice! We are yearly regulars to the Destin area and have stayed in many condos and by far this one has exceeded them all. We are a family of 6 with 4 children (ages 23, 18, 7, and 5) and this property (Emerald Grande and Harborwalk) kept everyone entertained. You never had to get back in your car to find something to do. I was a little skeptical about the water taxi to the beach with the little ones as I LOVE to stay on the beach; BUT actually I came to liking it very much as we were done with our day on the beach we came back only to find more to do. The ride to and from the beach actually entertained and cooled off my little ones who loved to ride the boat:) The pool was fantastic and the poolside bar and grill (which is the Grande Vista Bar and Grill) had the best food and drinks and very reasonably priced!! I recommend this restaurant even to people not staying at the Emerald Grande. We did ALL of the activites that the Harborwalk had to offer and it was AWESOME! Everything from parasailing, pontoon rentals, the Buccaneer Pirate ship, air show, fireworks, mardi gras parade was all just steps away and so much FUN! We will definitely be returning to the Emerald Grande:) Again THANK YOU very much!
Our vacation at the Emerald Grande was wonderful our condo was just as the property manager described.It has beautiful views on the two balconies,well furnished and very clean.It was great not having to drive to eat dinner or shop, everything was within walking distance at Harbor Walk Village. i would highly recommend this property to all my family and friends.
Upon arrival the check in process was very prompt, courteous, and professional. Arriving at our unit we were amazed at the size and quality of the accomodations; which rival any 5 star hotel. Other than having to adjust to the effectiveness and efficiencey of the climate controls ( air conditioning) the quietness, comfort, amenities, and convenience of our stay exceeded all our expectations. The location and local amenities eliminate the need to leave the facility unless one simply wants to do so. Many entertainment options within a easy walk, and the beach is superb.
The Emerald Grande is a great place to stay with your teenagers. Harborwalk Village has something for everyone. We enjoyed riding wave runners, paddle boarding, Kayaking and Dolphin cruise. It was great not having to fight the traffic at dinner time. We were able to walk to restaurants, shopping and night life. The only thing I missed was being able to walk on the beach at night. A beach shuttle is provided however, last pick up from the beach is 6pm. Beach shuttle is not available before 9 am, (my husband and I normally like to get an early start). The condo unit is very nice. Everything was brand new. The view from both balconies were incredible. Chris, (Manager) was wonderful to work with. On Day 2, I sent Chris a text to let him know the coffee pot was broken. About 3 hours later I received a call from Chris letting me know he was at the front desk with my new coffee pot. He is Awesome! My family and I had a fantastic time and we are ready to return! Thanks for a great vacation!
The Emerald Grande is fantastic and the until was in excellent condition. There are wonderful views from both balconies and the unit is in a perfect spot to easily get to the pool area, parking, and Harborwalk Village. You can watch boats all day long. There are a million things to do at Harborwalk. Be sure you understand that you need to take a boat to get to Emerald Grande's beach. We loved the free boat ride and they do a great job with beach service (chairs and umbrellas are provided). If you want to spend all day on the beach everyday, stay elsewhere. We preferred the easy access to the harbor, boats, shopping, eating, boardwalk, and pools. There's tons of traffic nearby around dinner time so be glad that you can walk to everything and stay off the roads. I loved it. :-) Chris was great to work with and the unit is well stocked. Thanks!
We stayed for 4 nights and have already booked a return trip for later this year. Everything was as advertised ....... the photos do not do the balcony view justice. Perfect location for a group trip (golf or fishing). We hit all our favorite harbor estabishments without having to drive anywhere. Great experience with the management/owners representative.
We had a bachelorette trip and book this condo. The place was really nice and clean. We enjoyed the whole weekend. Great plus is that Resort have unlimited beach shuttle to their private island. Next time we plan a trip we would reserved this place again! Owner was really nice to let my sisters and cousin check in before I get there.
Booked this property for a girls weekend before my nieces upcoming wedding, this condo was perfect for our needs. Once we arrived we never had to get back in our vehicles until we left to go home. The location cannot be beat and the amenities available at the resort for guest were great. Condo was beautiful and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The property manager of this unit was wonderful to work with and was always quick to respond to any questions that I had prior to my arrival at the resort. Will definitely stay again.
This Emerald Grande condo is perfectly placed and is immaculate!! The condo sits directly above the Harborwalk Village which gives you access to shopping, dining, watersports, fishing and the beach. You can also sit on the balcony, stare out over the harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, and feel like you are miles away from it all if that's what you prefer. They have a shuttle boat that takes you to a secluded private beach and a beautiful pool and hot tub. The condo itself was beautifully decorated and absolutely spotless! I would highly recommend this rental to anyone and everyone!!
HarborWalk is a perfect location in Destin for entertainment and dining, and the Emerald Grande is at the center of it all. The room overlooked the pool and had a wonderful view of the harbor and the ocean. The manager was very helpful and accommodating. We had a great stay and would highly recommend this rental for family fun in the sun or a couple looking for a romantic getaway.
