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 stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a great location. Lots to do within a very easy walking distance. We had a nice sunset view each night and explored many of the restaurants that are close. The room was just as the owner (Chris) described. The room was quiet at night and comfortable. Perfect for the stay!

It's starting to move closer to the slow season right now so the property was not busy. We had the pool and hot tub almost to ourselves each day. For beach lovers, you trade a beach front property for the convenience of restaurants and activities that Emerald Grande has. If you don't mind taking the boat shuttle over to the beach (quick 5 minute ride), you will love Emerald Grande. If you love walking out of your room and onto the beach, you won't be able to do this when staying at this property.

Overall this property and room met our expectations. No surprises. Everything was as advertised. A good time was had by all!

The Heart of the Destin

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at the Emerald Grand during the Sea Food and Fishing Festival!! This year the Seafood Festival was canceled due to the Tropical storm but there was so much to do with plenty of entertainment all up and down the walk. It's the best place to be with all that surrounds it and gorgeous condo's with all the amenities you need. The view is spectacular if it's not the boardwalk and festivities you want to enjoy you can easily rent a pontoon and hang out at Crab Island in the shallow water or the Emerald grande will shuttle you over with chairs and umbrella to enjoy the little island beach across from the Emerald Grand!! This is an awesome place to stay with a family or a romantic get away!! If you fish or it's your first time you can do a party boat for fishing or go out on a charter and get your name on that tournament board just for the fun of it!! Over all this rental was an awesome place to stay!!

Great location!!!

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice place to stay and very convenient location, but extremely expensive!!! Pool area was small considering the size of the buildings that are occupied. The elevators were not working properly almost the entire week we were there. It was extremely hot in the halls and elevators.

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean and perfect size for our family. The staff were wonderful. Taking the boat to the beach was more convenient than I expected. I don't think there could be a better view in Destin. We can't wait to go again!

just incredible!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here! The condo is beautiful, clean and up to date, plenty of space for our group of seven.Very nice soft comfortable beds, slept like a baby every night! So much to do very close by. We loved the boat ride to the private beach, even had dolphins swimming with us one day.. I was a little concerned about not having the beach within walking distance but the boat ride made up for it. Very nice pool, the harbor walk shops and restaurants below the condos were really nice. We only got in our car to go eat dinner each night and really could have eaten right there at harbor walk village so you could actually come and never get in your car until its time to leave. A Wonderful place to stay, would love to do it again!!
