I have been in the real estate business for over 20 years and have always enjoyed the short term rental business. It is a fun challenge every week of the summer and we pride ourselves on clean, high end beach rentals that families can enjoy. We all work so hard for our money and we want to show due respect for the money you spend with us! The Great Escape was a dream purchase for us.....to be on the sand in a boutique style condo...............not the masses that high rises can bring. This is an awesome unit on a nice and quiet part of the beach that makes vacationing relaxing. This building is well maintained and closely monitored for the future well being of all of our guests. Enjoy the quiet beach, beach chairs, nice pool, outdoor grilling area and the spectacular views from the unit. We are on the west end of Crystal Beach where you can walk to restaurants, rent bikes just across the street, shop at Destin Commons and drive to the harbor. We also own and short term rent a five bedroom home in a gated community in Destin and three budget friendly short term rentals in the north end of the county for those hungry to go to the beach but may have restrictions in their budgets. For a little more adventure, you can stay with us in Puerto Rico on a privately owned resort with three homes and a private pool! Just ask!!
Jean Brooks purchased this condo in 2008
Our search was for a family sized unit, on the sand, without masses of people and beaches that you can't have any down time.
.Sixth floor, two story unit, on the sand with separated living areas for kids and adults.
5 stars! We rented the Great Escape for 5 nights over Thanksgiving. We had 8 adults & 3 kids. Plenty of room for all of us. We had additional family visit on Thanksgiving Day & again we had plenty of room. The condo is in very good to excellent condition. The view? You can't beat it. The location is great as well. A+ management/owner. The only drawback we saw was the oven is small (wouldn't be an issue other than Thanksgiving). One other note -- it's a great location for runners. Both on the beach & the path along scenic highway 98. We definitely recommend the Great Escape -- you'll love it & Destin.
Our fall break vacation was great. we loved the Great Escape, The separate living area upstairs was perfect for our grandchildren. The penthouse is beautiful and accommodations were perfect. our family of 11 had everything we needed. we definitely would love to come back
We LOVED The Great Escape!!!! My family of 4, my sister's family of 4 and my parents (10 people) loved our stay here! Such a comfortable set up and perfect location (steps from the beach) and a great view from the balcony! Close to many shopping and eating venues. The management was so helpful and easy to work with. The condo was clean and nicely facilitied. Definitely will be our place of choice when returning to Destin!
This condo was wonderful and had everything you needed to cook including a crockpot! We were a family of 7 and the children had the entire upstairs loft area for themselves. The location was perfect and it was right off the mid-bay bridge. We will definitely be back next year.
We had our entire family of 12 and finally had some "elbow room" in a condo (and on the beach). Have been coming to Destin for over 20 years with the family (started with only 7 members of the family), and this is the cleanest, nicest, roomiest condo we have stayed in. Jean is a gracious owner and manager, and we appreciated her attention to detail, great recommendations (especially the pizza place that delivers), and her communicating with us every step of the way. We are discussing possible dates for next summer and hope to be back again. Definitely recommend this condo for families/groups of 8 to 12.
Another great vacation week at Emerald Dunes. The dining and living areas had been updated with new and practical furniture that was very comfortable. There were issues with tv reception that are being addressed but there wasn’t much interest in watching tv while at the beach anyway, even during a political convention.
I would recommend that one of the bathrooms be modified to install unobtrusive handicapped hand railings to help those of us who have mobility problems.
This was our second enjoyable stay at Emerald Dunes and we plan to return next year.
**Unit 602 comes with two beach chairs and an umbrella daily, set up for you, in front of the condo!
