About Chris McIlwain

Bluewater Rental & Cleanings manages properties throughout Destin, Fl.

Why Chris McIlwain chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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!

You Wont Be Disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my "stay-cation" at the Emerald Grande 522, and it was everything I had hoped for. The views from balconies were beautiful, especially from the master bedroom. The living room balcony has a direct view to the amenities building, but once you go out onto the balcony you have a nice view of the pool and ocean. You have the sun shining onto the balconies for the majority of the day which made it nice. The unit had brand new living room furniture which was comfortable. The kitchen had everything I needed, including basic spices for dinner left over from previous guests. The bed in the master was a dream. The overview says the guest room has a queen sized bed, but it looked like another king size to me. The owners choose not to participate the in room service-meaning you don't provide a credit card at check in- so just know you have to pay with a credit card each time. No complaints at all. I even enjoyed the spa services. The staff, as always, was amazing and helpful...This is my third stay-cation at the Emerald Grande, and I'll do it again. Book it. You won't be disappointed.

Best place to celebrate new years

  • 5 of 5

This unit is fabulous. Great views of the gulf,and sunsets to die for.

Chris was fantastic as always, making everything easy,and always there if you need anything. Unit 522 is where you want to be. This was our 2nd time in this unit and you can't go wrong. BIG 55" curved tv,comfy beds and a new keurig coffee maker. What more do you need.

Thanks Chris for your hospitality!!!! We will be back😉

Luxury Accommodations in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Emerald Grande in Destin, FL, room 522. The room itself is spectacular! It was very clean and well appointed. Bluewater Rental and Cleanings did a great job of making sure everything was perfect for our stay. Everything in the condo was top-notch, from the granite countertops to the luxurious spa shower in the master bath. The bed in the master bedroom was by far the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on during a vacation. The sheets were so incredibly soft! It inspired us to buy a resort-quality bamboo sheet set from the Cariloha store on the Harbor Walk Village during our trip. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful unit!

We loved our stay at this beautiful unit. It was larger than we expected and had a wonderful view of the ocean. I would definitely go back to this unit the next time we visit Destin.
