About Tina Machamer

My husband and I own this beautiful unit along with my two older brothers. Because we live in the area we manage the rental of the unit and enjoy making everyones vacation a pleasureable and stressless experience.

Tina Machamer purchased this condo in 2007

Why Tina Machamer chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

The Emerald Grande is the only property in the area that is truely run like a 5 star resort. From sunrise to sunset you have all of the amenities you could wish for without leaving the resort area. Couple that with the unsurpassed snow white beaches and emerald waters and the decision to buy property here was a no brainer!

You will enjoy every minute here.

Best vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I would definitely recommend this place. The pictures posted to not do this place any justice. We were really surprised at how clean and kept up this condo was. Easy access to anywhere you want to go. Would definitely stay here again!! Can't wait till next year. Also my kids really enjoyed the 3 balconies especially fireworks night. Beautiful view to the beach and pool. No regrets here.

Awesome stay at the emerald Grande. Location was everything for fishing rodeo, beach cruise, shops etc. Highly upgraded room with views and very easy check in. One of the best family vacations we have ever had.

Visitor to Destin area for Seafood Festival

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well furnished and check-in was easy. View was great and access to shopping and dining was very close. We visited the spa and had a magnificent time. Too bad the Seafood Festival was cancelled due to weather threat, but we still enjoyed our visit immensely.

Excellent Gulfside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time renting his condo at the Emerald Grande and it continually exceeds our expectations. We thoroughly enjoy the awesome pool, fitness center, and the new beach area that the Emerald Grande's boat transports you to. The Harbor Walk is co- located with the property which makes the shopping and restaurants easily accessible. We will continue to spend our vacations to Destin at this property in the Emerald Grande.

Mom, Dad & 3 young children

  • 5 of 5

We had the time of our lives on our stay at this condo. All of us had been here before except for our youngest daughter. We usually go thru the resort but chose to go thru Tina on this stay because of high reviews. Our decision was rewarded by getting into a very clean condo with great views and unbelievable access to shops & eateries. Thank You so much for your hospitality and we look forward to a future stay.

Wonderful vacation for our family of 6

  • 5 of 5

We had a near perfect vacation with our two kids, 13 and 11, and their two friends. The condo was great with a wonderful view. Enjoyed being able to see the pool and the beach along with watching all the boats going in and out. The bunk room should only be used for young children. The space is tight and took about 12 hours to cool from the time we arrived and turned the air on (set on 80 upon checkout). The other two bedrooms and baths are wonderfully furnished with beautiful views and balcony access. Loved the kitchen so much, big and well equipped, but did find the den lacked comfortable seating for all of us.

Now moving on to the good stuff! The WATER!! It was as clear as a swimming pool and a beautiful turquoise. We couldn't get enough of it! The kids had endless fun, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and swimming. Lots of activities offered for this age or teens. No, there are not big waves, but it is a great trade for water you can paddle board, kayak, and snorkel in. Our favorite activity was the two stop snorkeling through Destin Snorkel. Well worth it!! The towel and chair service was superb and the longest we waited for a ferry was 15 minutes and that was twice over the entire week.

Loved the two new restaurants, Crab Island Cantina and La Famiglia, as well as our favorite every year, Harry Ts. We also took a 40 minute drive to Seaside to eat and shop which was a fun trip.

We couldn't have asked for a better beach vacation! Thank you!
