This condo was so fun for my husband and our two friends. There is plenty of room and

big comfy furniture. The view from the balcony is amazing, as soon as we arrived we saw a pod of dolphins swimming outside our window. The condo's parking is great and checking in

and out was very simple. We plan on returning, cant think of a better location or place to stay while visiting the beach!

Great Location in Pensacola Beach

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we were very happy we stayed at Emerald Isle. High rise complex with only two elevators. One was not working when we arrived, but it was soon repaired. The location in Pensacola Beach is just perfect. Plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. However, we had a few complaints with this unit. Sofa in living room has a lot of stains. The floors were dirty. I swept when we got there and that really helped. Coffee pot needs to be replaced as it took a little over an hour to make a pot of coffee. You have to turn it on and off repeatedly to make a pot. Washer and dryer are old and "work" but door to dryer is about to fall off. Very few towels make washing each night a must. Only one towel in kitchen, no dish rag. Beds were comfortable. The beach was nice and the water was just beautiful the week we were there. October is a great time to visit. If you want to splurge one night, go to The Grand Marlin. The food and the service are top notch. The Native Cafe is right across the street and they have great fish tacos.

My family and I very much enjoyed our stay at this unit. It was very comfortable and nicely decorated/updated. Couldn't ask for anything more. The beach and clear, blue water was simply beautiful. The pool and hot tub area was very nice. The office staff at Gulf Blue Vacations is very professional and very pleasant to deal with. Will definitely stay at this unit again in the future.

Ready for Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

Was in the process of booking my second stay with this condo when I read the posted reviews. I was very surprised at the one bad review because my first stay was delightful. I had found the furniture and amenities in very good shape. I was particularily pleased that the kitchen had all the necessary items needed to prepare meals in house. I certainly enjoyed the close neighborhood restaurants but do like to cook in on occasion. The unit was clean and well cared for on my visit. Beds were comfortable. Rooms were spacious with nice decorative touches.

Great place to relax, read a book, take a long stroll on the beach and enjoy being with family or friends. Ready to enjoy my return trip!

Awesome Condo and Area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this condo! The condo was clean, organized, and very comfortable. We had everything we needed including a washer and dryer! The view from the master bedroom and living area was breathtaking! It was nice sitting on the balcony looking at the ocean and drinking our morning coffee! There are many places to eat and things to do within walking distance. My husband and I will definitely return specifically to this condo. It was perfect for us! Thanks to the owner for making our vacation one to remember!

My advice to anyone looking for a rental on the Gulf. Keep looking. We rented this unit through Gulf Blue Realtors. The picture they painted online is extremely deceptive. Here is my review: The first word that comes to mind is "dirty." We had no shower curtain in the guest bath. The refrigerator leaked, which meant the few towels allotted to us were on the floor most of the time soaking up water. We then had to launder them (yes there is an old washer and dryer in the unit) to use them for baths. The furniture is not new (as stated by Gulf Blue). It is old, worn and dirty. When I wanted to make coffee in their coffee pot, I had to wash it first. It was dirty. The day after we arrived I did notify them of the condition. They sent a maintenance person to install the shower curtain, and he brought the housekeeper with him. They were obviously married. They spoke to each other the whole time in their native language after telling me they already mopped the dirty floor. Well, it wasn't too hard to figure out. They did. She used a spray, followed by a swipe with a sponge mop. The floor dried sticky, so obviously it collected all the grime that came into the unit. The bottoms of our feet stayed black the whole time, even when I tried to mop it. My advice is to steer clear of Emerald Isle since I think these people have the cleaning contract. Also steer clear of Gulf Blue (formerly JME). They did nothing to rectify the refrigerator leak, and again, misrepresented the unit. We have used them twice over the last couple of years and had similar experiences. No more.
