About Donna

I own and manage the rentals for this condo. It is my joy to share it with guests. I am retired and live in New Orleans.

Donna purchased this condo in 1995

Why Donna chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have had so many good family memories in Destin over the years.

The beach is the sugary best! So many delicious restaurants nearby and shopping galore! Lots of fun activities for all! You are in the middle of everything here. Emerald Towers is smaller and such a treasure! The location and upkeep and friendly staff make it special to us and our guests.

average rating of 4.742857 based on 35 reviews

The condo is centrally located in Destin, right on the beach. The amenities are exceptional .

  • 5 of 5

The unit is beautifully maintained and has everything you need and more. Having stayed in beach condos for many years, I was pleasantly greeted by a fully equipped kitchen, lovely furniture, comfy beds and so much more. Donna definitely pays attention to keeping the condo in top notch condition for each and every guest. This is my third stay in this condo and will be the place I return every chance I get.

This is an overdue review that deserves the very best. My husband and I stayed at Donnas place September 16th through 23rd 2016. The place was immaculate, Nothing bad to say at all. The view was breathtaking, the pictures are very accurate. However being here to see everything with my own eyes was more than we had expected. Pictures don't give this place enough justice. Donna had everything you can possibly need, and tastefully decorated. The water was amazing!!!!!! walked out forever and could still see to the bottom. Enjoyed snorkeling with the beautiful little colorful fish swimming around. You can see them very well. The water was calm and gentle (so relaxing) An all together awesome place. I even left my computer there and the staff was honest enough to return it to me. So I greatly appreciate it. We ate at many places during our stay and Bubba Gumps was our favorite by far. Friendly staff and the Jambalaya was awesome.. We will return again. Don't want to stay anywhere else but here. Everything was perfect. Thank you for having us. Beware its sad having to leave......

Lovely beachy apartment - at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment/condo was immaculately clean and well-decorated; all the artwork and decorative items were beachy and relaxing, helping to get one into the mood for a rejuvenating vacation right away. And the view! There is a spacious balcony, overlooking the condo's pool, the white sand beach, and the emerald-colored water - so stunning - and relaxing. And you can rent umbrellas for the beach, for those who love the beach but can't take too much sun. It was also nice to have a well-functioning washer/dryer in the apartment - so nice when you are in and out of the water - salt or otherwise! The Donut Hole is a great breakfast place and the Back Porch is a terrific lunch place - thanks for the recommendations, Donna!

Owner's Response: Delighted that our beach vacation condo pleased you! We absolutely insist on thorough cleaning and strive to make it feel beachy and relaxing and to provide everything that you will need to feel at home. The view of the Gulf from the 11th floor is spectacular....can't get credit for that but surely do appreciate it each time we are there ourselves! Thank you for your review.

Nice condo on the beach.

  • 3 of 5

The condo itself was great. The resort was our only issue. They were resealing the parking lot so finding parking was hard. It also was very loud and they started working at 8pm so not helpful for those sleeping in the front bedroom. Also umbrella/chair rental takes up the ENTIRE length of the reserved beach. Made it difficult to enjoy the ocean as you had to walk through rows of chairs. What I'm most shocked about was the number of people smoking on the beach. I asked someone about it and they said smoking was allowed. While the condo was great, my family was not happy with Emerald Towers.

Owner's Response: Oh Megan, So disappointed to hear that ET scheduled parking lot resurfacing during your stay. I agree that this would be highly annoying and am eager to complain to management myself about their timing on this project. I was just at the condo myself and of course all was completed and lovely. I was also front row on the beach....ahhh. The vendors put out the umbrellas and chairs on a first come first serve basis so it is good to make arrangements asap. Unfortunately, during peak vacation times, everyone cannot be on the front row....it is this situation all down the beach in front of the various condos. As for the smoking on the beach, I am amazed because I never experienced that in all of the years I've been there. Too bad the folks were not more considerate. I will speak to management about this as well! On the good side, glad you liked the condo itself! I think you hit an unlucky time for sure and I am so sorry. Thank you for informing me!

So-so beach front condo in Destin

  • 3 of 5

Overall, this was a good condo. All of the necessary items were provided, including TP, paper towels, and dish soap.

However, there were a few major issues with the condo. 1) The floors were extremely dirty. Our feet turned black when we walked around the condo barefoot. 2) The dryer BURNT our clothing. The high heat setting was way too hot and ruined many of our clothes. The medium setting worked fine. 3) There was a marble in between the sheets, which makes it seem like the sheets were not changed between renters. 4) The filter in the coffee pot was not thrown away, so there was mold growing when we arrived. 5) The ice maker in the fridge had a broken piece so the ice continued to be made even tho the box was full. 6) The shower curtain liners were stained and should have been changed before we arrived.

POSITIVES: 1) The view was incredible from this condo! Being on the 11th floor allowed us to see so much of the beach and the ocean. 2) The tennis courts were beautiful and so fun to play on. 3) The condo was very secure and I loved that you needed a code to get into the parking lot. 4) The owners were SO easy to communicate with and were very generous. If these previously stated problems were to be fixed, we would absolutely stay here again.

This was a nice condo, except for the lack of cleaning. The location was great and was near shopping and delicious restaurants.

We are very grateful for this fun and relaxing family vacation! We would recommend this condo once the cleaning issues are resolved.

Owner's Response: Your review surprises and crushes me. Wish you had called right away with any issues! I send an information letter out prior to guest arrival which includes my phone number and that of my cleaning service and the front desk. This contact information is also posted in the unit. Most owners are not local, we depend on the on-site services. All of your issues would have been quickly handled. QUOTE: “If by some chance there is an emergency or maintenance problem during your stay, please contact the front desk/office. …………If there are cleaning issues upon arrival, call Flor at 850-8xx-xxxx. (Also let me know!).” We try hard to please our guests and my reviews have always been positive. I have returning guest who choose my unit because of its cleanliness. It is difficult to keep floors clean at the beach once you enter the unit with gritty shoes or sandy feet. The floors are always thoroughly mopped, linens changed and all appliances made clean. This is basic. I have had the same cleaning service since 2012 and she takes pride in her work. The refrigerator ice maker arm has been reinstalled and the dryer has been checked. Maintenance and front desk staff are always ready to assist. All is well for the next guests.

Amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

Our condo was amazing . The color schemes were absolutely gorgeous! I did not want to leave. My family will definitely be back again for future booking with this property. The owner is easy to contact and responds quickly to any questions or concerns you may have. Staff at Emerald Towers are attentive and friendly. Can't say enough good things about this property. Would not suggest eating at the Black Pearl in Ft. Walton. I strongly suggest eating establishments like The Back Porch, Callahan's and AJ's.
