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.

Right in the heart

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo right in the center of everything! The rooms were beautiful, well furnished, very clean. We really enjoyed being walking distance to so much. We went downstairs to the spa and got pedicures (wow, just wow!) Just outside we took the water taxi around to a great spot on the beach (with chairs set up) and we were even treated to a dolphin escort. We rented a pontoon and went out to Crab Island for the day which was also super easy and close by. The staff in the condo was very nice and helpful. Renting from Tina was a pleasure. She is great to work with and everything went so smoothly. The weekend for our purposes was a "girls" trip, but I would love to come back with my family. So much for kids, teens and adults. Thanks Tina!!

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.

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.
