About Chris McIlwain

Bluewater Rental & Cleanings manages properties throughout Destin, Fl.

Why Chris McIlwain chose Destin

We work with the top properties in Destin, Fl and Emerald Grande is the best! We know our guests will love this resort and we strive to have the same families staying with us year after year.

What makes this condo unique

Unparalleled views of Destin Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. Zero entry pool with the best pool deck in Destin. Indoor heated pool for rainy days. A great workout room with everything you need to stay fit on vacation. Harborwalk Village is just below resorts so shops, restaurants, and water activities are just steps away! And the beach you are taken to by boat (most guests see dolphins during the ride over) is the best in Destin, Fl!

Great location and unit

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this unit for Thanksgiving... the unit was so well equipped that it made cooking away from home no problem whatsoever! My teenager loved being able to go hang out down at the Harbor Walk Village and we enjoyed having restaurants so close. We would absolutely stay here again!

Beautiful place to stay. Everyone was so helpful. Chris is so great about responding to emails immediately. The unit was very clean when we arrived and the beds/ pillows were so comfortable. Awesome view of the Gulf of Mexico and harbor waters.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Emerald Grande. We elected to stay in the same condo as last time and we did not regret it. The condo is very well maintained and clean. It has a beautiful view and fits our family perfectly. My daughter loves the bunk beds and we love the master bedroom with the large bathroom. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need, including a coffee pot and a Keurig coffee machine. We brought our own pods this time and enjoyed our fav coffee easy peasy. We will definitely return again!
