With the Harbour Walk village at your feet and the Gulf's Largest fishing fleet to explore, this is a great vacation spot. Emerald Grande offers superb service and amenities.

Family Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough positive things about this property and the Emerald Grande resort! From the check in process to the check out, the experience was second to none. The owner was very quick to answer all my emails, the check in process was just like that of a 5 star hotel, couldn't have been easier or more pleasant. We had daily cleaning service included in the rent price, provided all paper products, and fresh linens every day. You won't find that anywhere else in a condo complex! The layout of the condo was great, it really had 2 master suites that had an adjacent bath and access to balcony. The third bedroom is a bit small with bunk beds, which is good for small children, but since ours are grown, it wasn't ideal for us. The service was impeccable, everyone always so helpful! When we asked for a luggage cart at the front desk to get our groceries to our condo after a trip to the grocery, within 30 seconds, we had a cart and a bellman that insisted on loading everything into the cart, taking it to our condo and unloading into the kitchen! The pool area is amazing! And although not on the beach, there is a boat shuttle that runs every 30 mins to take you out to the beach, providing complimentary chair and towel service. You can also order food and drinks and charge to your room. Our return shuttle driver saw dolphins in the harbor as we were cruising back, and he turned around to float close enough for us to get pics and amazing dolphin views! The location, which is right in Harbor Village, is perfect!! You have a huge selection of restaurants, bars and shops as soon as you walk out of your front door. We literally used our car only once, to go get groceries, the entire time we were there! We will definitely be back, it was an awesome vacation!!

Perfect location for the Destin seafood festival!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property! We literally were able.to walk right out to the seafood festival without the worry of driving anywhere. The view from the porches was gorgeous! We were able to sit out in the evenings and listen to the festival bands from our porch. There was plenty of room for all of our family. We will definitely be staying here again!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall the stay was great and the condo was very clean and as described. The parking was a bear, but that can be expected over 4th of July timeframe. Getting to the actual beach is a bit of chore with children as you have to ride a boat out to the beach access (about 10 minute boat ride). Beach was cramped, but then again it was 4th of July week. Nice amenities and a lot of stuff to do within walking distance. The boardwalk is getting a little too touristy, but it was fun anyway.

Great location on the boardwalk

  • 4 of 5

Emerald Grande is a great spot to stay in Destin. The harbor boardwalk is basically at your front door with lots of variety in restaurants, activities and shops. Our unit #601 was nicely furnished and we would certainly stay again. The only complaint was persistent sounds in the ceiling ducts of dripping or piping vibrating sounds. Pretty annoying.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear of another successful Emerald Grand experience. If we had of known you were having issues with the unit during your stay, it would have been dealt with immediately. We are looking into the issue now. Thank you for letting us know.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The check in process was quick and easy. The condo was spotless upon arrival and was the perfect size for our family. Although the condo isn't in direct view of the pool/beach, it has a great side view of both. Love the bunk room for the kids. I will stay at this condo in the future!

home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in the Gulf of Mexico, the Destin fleet has many differant options for those who want the deep seafishing experience. Many boats docked directly on the Emerald Grande property. Close to family activities, Big Kahuna water park, go-carts and Putt Putt golf. Walking distance to 5 restaurants: AJ's: seafood and night club, Lucky Snapper: great place to watch the fleet come home, Harry T's: upscale seafood, and more.
