What a great guesthouse...there were 7 couples (cousins & spouses) who enjoy a get together each year....this year was exceptional....however the golf course is under construction so we had to golf at another location...this did not prove to be a problem. Would recommend again.

Loved our stay! The PERFECT home for our wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Emerald Bay Guesthouse for my wedding weekend in August 2013. Jearl and the staff of the Emerald Bay Golf Club were beyond accommodating and helped make our weekend one we will always treasure. The house was a perfect set-up for my entire family to stay (including my parents, three brothers and their small children, and my aunt and her family). We had a large group, but the house is designed so that it still feels spacious and not crowded even with so many family members and their young children. There are four bedrooms with private bathrooms on each floor of the home. The pool was right out back, which was a hit with all of the kiddos. Each bedroom has its own thermostat too. That was a welcomed surprise. The guys were able to get in a couple days of golf. They too commented on the excellent service provided by the golf club. There is ample parking space as well as a great big grill out back. There was also a washer/dryer in the kitchen, which turned out to be a great convenience with the kids swimming and all of their towels. We also surely appreciated the big cooler filled with ice upon checking in.

I had an early morning wedding and had the golf club cater a breakfast reception. The food and service were superb! My family is already buzzing about making this home part of a new family tradition--a place to get together every other year or so. Thank you Emerald Bay for making our weekend so special. We can't wait to come back!

Great Lodge for large golfing group

  • 5 of 5

Brought 16 golfers. Each room has 2 queen size beds, TV and large bathroom. Recently remodeled kitchen is very nice. We brought the Green Egg and had ALL meals at lodge. Great room very nice with plenty of seating and electronics including wifi. Only small complaint is quality of greens (Emerald Bay) is not the best - unlike everything else at this great lodge. Property managers very receptive to our needs. Highly recommended.

Loved This Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our annual summer vacation. I have stayed in numerous homes and condos in Destin and this was the best by far! The home was roomy and welcoming. There was not one complaint by anyone in our party! I would recommend this home to anyone! We will be visiting this home again! 2 thumbs up for sure!

My wife and I were recently married in Destin and we had our reception at Emerald Bay. The accommodations were wonderful and all we had hoped for. The reception itself was located at the club house. The staff did an excellent job and the service was terrific. I highly recommend the guest house and facilities.
