Why Laurie McReynolds or Krista Salome chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Krista and Laurie are from Texas. They have been friends for more than 20 years. Krista is a graduate from Baylor University but is a Texas Aggie at heart. She has 3 sons who are A&M graduates and were in the Corps of Cadets. Laurie is a Tarleton graduate. She has 2 lovely daughters. Both owners are Texans by birth, but are hopefully future Floridians and both love the white sands and emerald blue waters of Destin, Florida. Both have vacationed in Destin for years and decided that it was time to buy a home so they can spend more time close to the beautiful emerald waters of Destin. They have put a lot of time, money, and energy into making this their home away from home. They actually did the remodeling with Laurie's husband-Steve. Steve is a gifted remodeler; they were just good helpers!!

Laurie and Krista considered many locations within the Destin, Florida area. But once they saw the fabulous location, wonderful beach access, immaculate community, and the terrific amenities that Emerald Shores had to offer, there was no need to look any further. Just as there is no need to look any further for a great vacation rental than Devine Opal in the Emerald Shores community. This area is our favorite. It's so convenient!!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Divine Opal was the perfect place for a mid-winter getaway. The property was wonderful - it was very relaxing to sit out on the balconies and porches, listening to singing birds and the wind whispering in the palms. The white sands and aqua waters of the Gulf were less than a five minute walk down the sidewalk. There were grocery stores, shopping and amazing restaurants in very close driving proximity. It is indeed a Divine place in Paradise. We had a very enjoyable stay! Thank you very much for sharing your very beautiful Florida Panhandle home :)

Spacious, Clean, Fenced Yard, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here!! The house was very spacious, clean, and the fenced in backyard is bigger then it looks. It was great for our dogs and a toddler. You could sit in the sun in the morning/ early afternoon and by evening the backyard was shaded. The pools are very close and the beach is like 700 feet from the house. The bathroom at the private beach was a nice benefit. There is a dollar general store right next door that takes like 5 minutes to walk to. It was more like a little grocery store and their prices were very reasonable. Eggs, lunch meat, dairy, frozen foods, beer/wine etc. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe, and quiet. We had no worries letting the kids go back and forth to the pool, for bike rides or going for late night walks. The pools were never crowded. There are 3 bars/restaurants Kenny D's, Capt Dave, and Pompano Joe's within 700 feet to 1 mile walking distance. We highly recommend the deep fried Mahi Mahi and popcorn shrimp at Kenny D's. Very large portions!! We loved the fact we could walk to so many places and not have to get in the car.

Just a little minor side note: the vacuum does not work very well and the cupboards had so many dishes we had very little room to put our groceries. OVERALL WE LOVED THE PLACE AND THE LOCATION!!!

Wonderful home in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We made a last-minute trip to Miramar Beach and they were happy to work with our last-minute schedule. The home was very nice and offered everything we needed. The location in Miramar Beach was ideal. Walking distance to several restaurants and a 5 minute walk to the private beach. We appreciated the private back yard and two distinct living areas. We will certainly come back and stay again!

Relaxing and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful place to relaxed and have a good time. Me and my family enjoyed every minute we were there. The house has a lot of room for everybody my favorite room was down stairs since it had easiest access to go to the beach and the pool. Loved the fact that the beach is walking distance. I will definitely come back and recommend this place.

Fabulous vacation for 9!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! My best friend & our 7 kids felt right at home the entire week! There was plenty of spaces to 'get away' when needed yet felt like we were all together. The Emerald Shores community is just beautiful! Can't wait to come back soon!!!
