About Robert Blaha

Live in Atlanta, GA and purchased Emerald Isle #1406 in 1999. Fell in love with Pensacola Beach and especially like how it's not nearly as crowded as surrounding communities like Destin, Gulf Shores, or even Panama City Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr. Blaha, I just wanted to follow up on the rental of Emerald Isle #1406. It was an absolutely amazing property and more than we ever imagined. It allowed us to have a vacation without any worries. I want to thank you for allowing us to book and enjoy your condo. My three sons loved every minute of it and I will cherish the memories that we made there. I have spread the word about your property to everyone that I know and I hope that we will be able to rent it again in the future as we are wanting to make it a reoccurring vacation.

Thanks again!

The condo description was totally accurate. Beds were comfortable, sufficiently equipped with everything needed in kitchen. The condo was clean as well as the lobby and pool areas. Wine on the balcony with a flyby by the Blue Angels was very special. Very close to good restaurants. The owner was great to work with---over and above what we expected. We would highly recommend this unit.

The photos do not do this place justice! It was absolutely beautiful, spacious, well equipped, and comfortable. The check in/out process was a breeze and the entire property at Emerald Isle was extremely well maintained. You are literally steps from the beach and the pool area is very nice as well. The view is breathtaking, making for a fabulous place to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and cocktails. The kitchen had everything needed if you chose to cook and the amenities within were better than expected. The condo was immaculate, the beds comfortable, and the location could not be beat. There were a couple of quirks; the front door has to be dead bolted or it won't stay shut, the refrigerator freezer door doesn't close properly, the guest bath door won't stay open, but overall, there were no big issues. We would definitely choose to stay here again.

Cozy condo w/great views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very spacious, comfortable, and cozy. We didn't hear our neighbors even though I know the two units on either side were occupied.

The view is amazing. It's like you are in the middle of the ocean! We enjoyed having dinner on the balcony.

Kitchen had basic cookware/cutlery/utensils to make lunch and dinner. Wish there were a few more supplies, but nothing necessary was missing.

The beach was great - white sand, pretty water, lots of shells. It wasn't very crowded the days we visited. Rentals for lounge chair and umbrella are available, but you can also bring your own or the ones supplied in the condo.

Happy vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo and location were beautiful. My husband and I turely enjoyed our stay. On the other hand it was chilly and the water was very cold so our teenagers didn't enjoy it as much as us.

Wonderful beach trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls trip to the beach & the condo was perfect! We did have some trouble with a stopped up toilet when we arrived, but maintenance arrived quickly & fixed it! No other issues the rest of the trip!

Very close to great restaurants, shopping & great night life!!!

Pensacola Beach - Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This Condo is one of the nicest we have stayed in so have returned for our 3rd visit earlier this year. It is modern with nice neutral comfortable furniture which I would have in my own home. The kitchen is great with plenty of glassware, crockery and dishes so you can cook a full meal if you wish. The en-suite bathroom off the master bedroom has a large modern walk in shower while the other bathroom has a bath with shower over which is also nice. You can access the balcony from both the master bedroom and the main living room, the balcony furniture is comfortable so you can sit back and relax and enjoy the beautiful views with a nice glass of wine, heaven!! The pool area is always kept really clean and the smaller pool is heated in the winter which is a bonus, plus the Jacuzzi is nice to relax in after a long walk along the beach. The condo is in a great spot within walking distance to a choice of some nice restaurants and local shops on the boardwalk. We generally shop in Publix before going over the bridge to Pensacola Beach as there is not much in the way of supermarkets at the beach, but there are a few shops to get the basics if required. All in all we have really enjoyed our stays in Pensacola normally in January in the quieter months and hope to go back again next year and would definitely recommend staying in this rental, Robert is great to deal with and responds really quickly, we have never had any problems.
