Guestbook comments from the owner

Greg,

Thank you for allowing my sister and I to stay at your condo in Destin.

You have a very well decorated and equipped unit. The location of Emerald

Towers is perfect for dining and shopping in Destin. The premises are

secure and the pool and beach front are great. The problems encountered

initially with water temperature of the shower in the hall bathroom was

resolved on Tuesday morning by the building maintenance staff. All of

the Tower's staff were very helpful and friendly, especially Dan. Just two

minor suggestions for future guests stays: more than two trash bags are

needed in the unit for a week's stay and the electrical outlets in the

bathroom off the hallway and in the guest bedroom behind the nightstand

need to hold the plug in the socket. Once again, thank you, we enjoyed ourselves a lot. I hope to plan another trip back and will check to see if your unit is available if you

will have me.

Would have been a 5 star if not for "off-gassing" new carpet. VOC fumes ruined it for us.

  • 1 of 5

We had the pleasure of taking a trip to the Gulf for Thanksgiving 2016. This unit was everything we wanted in a condo- spacious, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, Gulf views, the works. The condo is located conveniently in the heart of Destin- anything you need is a short walk or quick drive away. Unfortunately, our trip would have been perfect (and I would have nothing to complain about) if not for the fact that the owner had replaced the carpet the day before we arrived. We arrived to a closed up condo which smelled heavily of some sort of varnish. We didn't know, but found out after an email to the owner that it was the carpet that was off-gassing. The Environmental Protection Agency advises ventilating well for at least 72 hours after new carpet installation by opening windows, which we did... however we could not leave the windows in the 2nd bedroom open because it is adjacent to an exterior walkway. So, we could not use the 2nd bedroom at all. We had to seal it off and have our children sleep on the couch. There is a pull out sofa, but we chose not to use it because housekeeping failed to clean beneath the cushions and there was food particles on the bed. We left the master bedroom windows and both of the sliding doors open the ENITRE time we were there, and the off-gassing VOC fumes were still too much for me to handle, so I had to pull the mattress off of the 2nd bed and lay it on the living room floor to sleep on it. Thankfully we had good weather each day b/c if it had rained or been too cold, we would have had to close the windows. In that case, we would have had to end our stay early and gone home. Like I stated, the condo is wonderful and in a wonderful location, but I wish the owner would have notified us that new carpet was going in prior to our arrival. At minimum, no one should rent the condo until after 72 hours of airing out. Shame on him for renting it out the day after!!! My lungs still hurt even thinking about this stay. VOC fumes ruined it for us, and when contacting the owner about it- he seemed pretty unconcerned and suggested I vacuum. I would recommend this condo- but not until spring of 2017. The carpet should be done off-gassing by then.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this condo with family in April and I have to say, as someone who has vacationed at Emerald Towers several times in recent years, this unit was one of the most beautifully decorated we have ever stayed in. The condo is clean, spacious, and comes equipped with every amenity you could possibly need during your stay. The view from the balcony is fantastic and the unit is right on the beach, no driving or crossing streets necessary. Also, the owners are very friendly and respond quickly to any questions you may have. I would definitely recommend this condo for anyone who is planning a vacation to Destin.

Amazing Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I had the pleasure of staying in this 2 bedroom condo from Nov.-Feb. The views from the 5th floor balcony of the amazing white sandy beach and emerald green water were awesome! You also have views from the kitchen & master bedroom of the Gulf. The condo is very spacious and has everything you need. Having the washer/dryer in the condo is a plus and the beds were very comfortable. Emerald Towers is very well maintained..I especially liked having a fitness room for those days I couldn't walk on the beach. Greg, the owner, is very prompt in responding to any questions you may have and makes you feel very welcome. It is a plus not having to deal with rental agencies. The only negative was having to leave but we are booked to return in December! If you are looking for a condo on the beach, this is the one to book. Thanks Greg we had an amazing winter!

Great condo, property, location, and owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

First, the condo and property are fantastic. The owner actually manages his own condo retntals, which is excellent, and the property management at Emerald Towers are friendly and helpful. The condo and entire Emerald Towers property is very well maintained so you don't have to worry about being uncomfortable in any way. For those who haven't been to Destin or aren't familiar with the location of Emerald Towers, this condo is very close to many great eats such as the Destin favorite The Back Porch, major grocery stores, and local shops. Finally, for those who don't want to bother with a property management company(which adds no value to the person renting), the owner of this condo manages his own property which helps keep rates low. My family has been renting from Greg(the owner) for 6 years and we always check his availability before booking our stays in Destin. Honestly, you can't go wrong here.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this condo. The location is perfect for a family getaway and there's plenty of good shopping and dining within a few miles of the condo. The pool area was great and the gas grills cleaned daily by the staff. The owner was super easy to work with and the price exactly as quoted (i.e. no hidden charges). Great family vacation!!
