About the property

GULF FRONT fully remodeled end unit in private condominium w/only 27 units!

MAGNIFICENTLY remodeled Gulf front condo in the highly sought after Emerald Dunes condominium! Enjoy the Emerald Coast from this beautiful 2nd floor end unit with promises of coastal memories for a lifetime. Expansive Gulf views come standard with our condo allowing for picturesque sunrises & sunsets to start and end each day. This condo sleeps (8) enjoying (2) bedrooms (each having views of the Gulf), a set of hallway bunks and a sleeper sofa. There are (2) full bathrooms (Master having its own and 2nd/guest bath having an access door directly into 2nd bedroom). Highlighting the condo are the open & spacious living, dining & beautiful kitchen areas. These wonderful entertaining areas have all the views you come to the Florida Gulf Coast for. Whether you're preparing a gourmet meal, savoring a shrimp or flavorful cocktail or just lounging around, ONLY END units enjoy this extra spacious entertainment area making comfort an ease. The stunning kitchen is fully stocked, enjoying all new stainless steel appliances and other important kitchen musts. This includes a coffee maker, Kuerig, toaster, blender, pots, pans, baking gear and much more. And yes, there is a large pantry, ready to hold food for an army of beach goers. Dining has options as well, choose to eat at the expansive bar, dining table or enjoy a meal on the covered gulf front balcony. Other condo features included: brand new front load washer & dryer, flat screen TV's in living room & bedrooms, jacuzzi tub in Master bath, (4) beach towels w/beach bag & for all rentals that fall between March - Oct, (1) free beach set-up w/on site rental company (includes two chairs & umbrella). As a final bonus, the elevator is optional! This condo is located up only one flight of stairs positioned right across from the East stairwell (I LOVE THIS THE MOST:)

Emerald Dunes is a private/gated condominium with amenities that include the large pool, hot tub, gas BBQ grills, boardwalk showers, bathrooms and beach attendants. These amenities (including the vast beach) are private and are for the enjoyment of Emerald Dunes guests & owners only.

You can't beat the building's location either. Emerald Dunes is located on the West end of Scenic Highway 98 which has minimal traffic and plenty of essential attractions within walking distance. Just across the street is one of the best coastal cuisine restaurants, Camille's, especially known for their delectable sushi & intimate bar. And talk about coffee convenience, the Java Cafe is right below Camille's, ready to serve your morning Joe and is also open for lunch. Publix(grocery) and Destin Commons (one of the largest shopping & entertainment malls), is located within (2-3 minutes) which holds a bowling alley, movie theater, restaurants & galore of shopping opportunities.

Finally, one of the more notable characteristics that sets Emerald Dunes apart from most condominiums is the private low density setting. There are only 27 units with all amenities under coded supervision and a parking lot with plentiful space. Come and create Destin memories for a lifetime! Remember you only live once, so 'Don't Live to Work, Work to Live!'

Also, I speak to all guests prior to accepting reservations to ensure we have all questions answered and to go over all details for the reservation. We want to welcome guests who will be responsible, accountable and considerate of our vacation home. So please feel free to call me at anytime with any questions prior to requesting a reservation. Thank you again and we look forward to you and your family allowing us to accommodating you stay here in beautiful Destin, FL!

P.S.: For larger groups or family reunions we also own the opposite West end unit, Emerald Dunes #205, VRBO #328262. It has the exact same layout (2br & 2bth, sleeps 8) and was just purchased & updated. If "bigger is better", you may love our newest venture. It's a beautiful 2661 sq ft, Gulf front penthouse (3) buildings away in Dunes of Crystal Beach. It's VRBO #800661 and is a 5br 4bth "Legend " of a property.

Gorgeous oceanfront condo!!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here during spring break. This condo was stunning with an updated kitchen and lots of space for our family of 5. I worried that the bunks would be too small for my 17 and 16 year olds but they loved them! I loved the views from the main living space. The location was great! Everything was convenient to get to. The property was clean and secure.

The best part of course was the beach! Very handy having included rentals!

We will definitely stay here again!

Destin Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great location and condo; 2nd floor to make it easier to get to via stairs and gated for safety; easy access to beach and great assistance on the beach from the beach equipment attendees; highly recommend it. The condo itself is very well kept and was very clean when we arrived.

Dune Legacy great 2 bedroom condo

  • 5 of 5

The location of Emerald Dunes was great. On quiet Scenic Hwy 98 but close to shopping and restaurants. Condo on 2nd floor corner and was very roomy. Kitchen updated and modern. There was everything we needed in the condo. Internet and cable were very good. Beds were very comfortable. View of the gulf was awesome with nice balcony and easy access to beach. Beach very clean with white sand. Saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Was nice having gated parking and 2 spots.

Comfortable and convienent

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. If you are pool person, then know the pool is adjacent to the parking lot street side. I was not able to sleep one night because of some routy people who stayed passed pool closing time. The condo was very nice and comfortable. The view is amazing. The beach is nice. Lots of condo rules if you rent here.

Emerald dunes is located in the most ideal area of Crystal Beach & Scenic Hwy 98. The West end has less congestion & traffic. There are no major commercial buildings within site of property, keeping a more intimate vacation venue. There is so much within a one mile radius of the property including conveniences like Publix grocery and (3) local restaurants. Other attractions within this one mile area include: The Henderson Beach Inn (big wedding venue) The Henderson Beach State Park, major shopping center/Destin Commons (that has just expanded), Rave Movie Theater, 3 golf courses, ice cream shops, walking/jogging paths, bike & scooter rental adjacent to a coffee shop located just across the street from Emerald Dunes and of course the best beaches in the world! I can keep going & going but I believe there are a few things yet to be discovered on your own:)
