Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Emerald Dolphin was everything we hoped for and provided for all our needs while we were in Pensacola Beach! Fabulous view of the gulf, great pool and access to the beach. The kitchen was well equipped and made meals in very easy. Loved the size of the beds/baths and the in unit laundry was the best! We would definitely return and recommend to family and friends!

Had a great family beach vacation. Property was close to attractions, but just far enough from the crowd at the beach. It was perfect.

Very nice, clean, and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful location. There was more than enough room for myself, my wife and our two sons. Everyone loved the view from the balcony. Our four year old absolutely loved sleeping on the pullout bed. The lockers had everything we needed to hang out at the beach. The Tom Thumb next door is well stocked and has everything you need. Olivia was always available and ready to help with any issues that arose. There was a miscommunication about the parking pass and lock box code. She had these problems rectified in a matter of minutes. My wife and I are in the process of booking this place again without the kids this time. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.

Every room is beautiful. Very comfortable furniture. Great views.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a perfect experience. The condo had everything we needed from space, comfort, amenities, and location. The master suite is like none other we have ever seen. We have decided that Pensacola is our family's beach vacation spot and this condo is where we will stay.

Wonderfully Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We so very much enjoyed our stay. The location is wonderful. The convenience of the pool locker was great. We loved not having to lug everything up and down and keeping as much sand as possible out of the condo as possible. The bed was comfortable and the shower was a great size. The beach was very nice and not very crowded. Our only adjustment we had to make was to turn the A/C down pretty far (66) because it seemed like the master bedroom did not get as cool as the rest of the condo. We religiously kept the doors closed and in keeping the A/C down we were very comfortable. The condo was very clean and well-maintained. Olivia was very quick in responding to any of our needs. We absolutely love this condo and will definitely be coming back.

Fantastic Condo, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this condo do not do it justice! The Emerald Dolphin is beautifully maintained and nicely furnished. We have stayed in many VRBOs and this one really felt like home. Olivia was great with communicating all we needed to know. The view of and proximity to the beach was absolutely perfect! The provided beach accommodations in the locker were great for lounging in the sand but we found ourselves enjoying the view and sounds of the ocean directly from the patio even more. It was all the benefit of beach lounging without the sand! That being said, the beaches were beautiful! Fine white sand, clean, and not too crowded!

The location is off of the "touristy" path, which we loved, but plenty close to any and all attractions in the area. There is a well stocked Tom Thumb next to the building and a Publix just across the bridge. Peg Leg Pete's is two buildings away and an easy walk. It's definitely a destination for tourists and locals alike and gets pretty busy during dinner. The dining room had a fairly long wait both nights we went but we avoided the crowd by going to the "Underwhere Bar" downstairs. They offer nearly the full menu and it's also where the music is played. We ran into quite a few locals down there and it was clear why it's so loved after we ate. The oysters were delicious and their hot sauce is amazing. Pensacola Beach shopping and many other restaurants are within a 5 minute drive. I highly recommend Shaggy's and Casino Beach for restaurants. Also, be sure to walk out on the pier to watch the sunset one night. There's a small charge but it's definitely worth it.

We stayed for 5 days and were able to easily see the entire region from Gulf Shores, AL to Destin, FL. We spent one morning at Fort Pickens in the Gulf Islands National Seashore. The vibe around the fort is very cool and we enjoyed the museum and more of those white sandy beaches too! On a whim, we decided to check out the National Naval Aviation Museum and arrived at 11:30 on a Thursday just in time to see the Blue Angels full practice round. The show was spectacular! Entry is free and the museum has so much history and many amazing displays of naval aviation through the years.

I can't recommend Olivia's condo and its location enough. We have already recommended it to many friends and family and are already planning another trip back next year.

Thanks for a great stay Olivia!

-Meredith and Curt

Car: recommended

Located in a great location. You can walk to Peg Leg Pete's for one of the best fish sandwiches on the beach or take a trolley ride to Casino Beach for shopping and more exploring. You are just steps away from one of the " Best Florida Beaches "

Anything you want to do on a beach vacation is not far away!
