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!'

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. Also, if a beach house works for you, we have VRBO #2054 located just a block away. It's a 3BR + tower bedroom w/(2) twin beds, 3 1/2 Bath FL beach cottage in Clipper Cove, again just one block away from these condos.
We are the Owners of opposite West end unit (#205) allowing for larger groups to have separate accommodations in same building. It has the exact same layout and was remodeled in Nov 2013! The VRBO # is 328262 and the reviews are wonderful!
First of all, this is a wonderful condo with everything you need to enjoy your time at the beach. I will start with the property itself. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The pool was very comfortable. The beach is unbelievable and the chair attendant was very helpful. No complaints whatsoever. Now for the condo itself. The end units are certainly the preferred units and I can see why. From the second you walk in the door, you'll love this place. You also notice how well maintained it is. Randy was very accessible and his team did a great job. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean with the amenities you would expect from a nicer property like this. Even though we did not use them, the hallway bunkbeds would be perfect for younger children. The kitchen is great and well appointed. Really liked being on the 2nd floor. Here's my reason for a four star rating: the beds. They are just too hard. I tossed and turned all night. If you like very firm beds, you will love this place. I really do plan to rent this property again despite the beds. Heck, maybe by then, they'll have new ones! I do highly recommend this property!! Here's my take on a few restaurants: Boathouse (over on the harbor) meh... it was okay. 790 on the Beach (about three block east) it was okay, service was good. Camille's on Crystal Beach (across the street) excellent food and service. That's about all we did other than the beach, which is why we were there. Awesome place!!
We have stayed at Emerald Dunes a few times now but in different units. The location just can't be beat! Easy access to wherever you need to go. This unit was very nice. The beach side stayed much cooler than the bedrooms. We like to be cool when we sleep but that was our only issue. Everything else was great. I really appreciated the touch points by the realtor or unit manager(?). Just nice to be checked on and ensure that the stay is good. We also got new living room furniture while we were there!! That's a first:) The unit also provides a few beach items which is a very nice touch verses buying stuff or dragging it from home. Again, location can't be beat and it is a very well furnished unit.
Great location and view! Very clean and up to date; would highly recommend to anyone.
Fantastic place to stay! Beautiful condo with everything you need and a fantastic view of the ocean! Our second visit here and hopefully we will be back!!!
This was a Great place to stay and Randy was very helpful with questions I had while planning our vacation! Very clean and excellent location, we will definitely be staying here again!
Although we were only in town for a couple of days, this condo was exceptional. It was definitely one of the cleanest condos we've stayed in! I absolutely loved the decor. We slept as good as if home in our own beds. And of course the view is always a plus! Would definitely stay here again!
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:)
