We have a new wagon that you may take to the beach with you! This makes it easier for you to take beach chairs, coolers, and even small children to the beach!

Nice backyard with privacy fence, patio, and BBQ grill. Upstairs, you'll find 3 bedrooms, a bonus room, and a loft on the 3rd floor with a wet bar and a balcony! 2nd floor balcony accessible from bonus room and master bedroom. 1 King, 1 queen, 2 twin beds in the bedrooms.

The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!' Destin is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports.

Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes two to three times a year event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you'll want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why!

Helgoland Stay

  • 4 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was adequately helpful.

The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.

I was very happy with the location.

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

Emerald Shores is centrally located to great shopping and restaurants. Helloland is only 2 houses away from one of the pools and a short walk to the beach. But Helgoland needs some attention. The furniture is dingy and very well used...you will sink if you sit on the couch. The dishwasher does not clean the dishes and needs to be replaced...we ended up washing all our dishes by hand, back door knob is about to fall off. However, none of this deterred us from having a good time. But for the price you pay you expect quality. When we told C.W. staff that we were unhappy and would probably look elsewhere next time (we've been staying at Emerald Shores for the last 9 years, twice a year), they basically said "we agree, hope you find something else"

Reviewer Comments:

The house was very nice and within walking distance to the beach. We walked the beach every morning with our dog (who absolutely loved the top balcony watching everything). Kids spent hours at the beach, we went fishing on the Okaloosa Pier which we saw dolphins, baby shark, stingray, jellyfish it was awesome. Went sailing on AJ's sailboat and saw more dolphins, had an awesome time. The only negative was we thought the main king bed was not very comfortable, but other than that everything was great.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time. We have been to Emerald Shores each of the last 10 years and this was our first time in this house. The layout of the house was great and there was adequate space. There were a couple of negatives. A tiny television in the master bedroom was hard to see. Also the wifi was not really good since the router was on the 3rd floor. Really bad connectivity. And the grill was in bad shape and not functional. I like to grill when we're in Destin, but not this time. Other than that, everything else was and we will continue coming to Emerald Shores.

Was in a perfect location, easy access to the pool and the beach. Beautiful house. Only downside we had for the three weeks was very slow internet, they really need high speed.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Helgoland. It is a super nice home with nice upgrades. Recently painted too! Will check the internet. There should be a range extender there too. Maybe it wasn't working properly at the time.
