About Todd and Christina Hawkins

We live in the Nashville area but I am a Florida native, and we have always loved the Destin Beaches. We now have an opportunity to own and share a little piece of heaven.

Todd and Christina Hawkins purchased this condo in 2012

Why Todd and Christina Hawkins chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Emerald Towers is such a great spot - the people here are nice, the location is perfect, and since there are only around 80 units on the property, it isn't crowded like some other places. Plus, the staff at Emerald Towers really do a great job of keeping up the premises. Everything is always nice and clean.

What makes this condo unique

Destin Beaches, Pool, grilling area, location, and the condos are nicely laid out and comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We took the kids on spring break (March 10 - 18th). Had a wonderful time and the view is splendid. The condo is nicely appointed and the staff are very helpful & friendly. The owner is also good to work with. We would definitely recommend the unit 905 at Emerald Towers to everyone. We also enjoyed the daily sky parade of Chinooks, Apaches, Ospreys, F-35's, & the Blue Angels overhead.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

What a view! This place was exactly what my family and I were looking for. The master bedroom was huge and had breathtaking views. The kitchen was well stocked. The washer and drier was in the condo which was a huge plus too! The owners were friendly and attentive.

The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was the patio set. A nice counter height set would've improved the beautiful view. Don't get me wrong, what they have is doable! Will be back for sure!

Great Location in Destin; Top Notch Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay for the week! It was an easy check in. The condo's kitchen and wet bar were updated, as well as the living room. Great TVs in both bedrooms and living room. The only semi-negative was the mattresses were somewhat soft.

Outstanding!!!

This was our first experience with a VRBO, nothing but great experiences. The views were amazing, accommodations comfortable, convenient location. We fished from Destin (Swoop), and were able to grill our fresh catch. Recommend this stay!!
