About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9


This property is ALL BRAND NEW. It has just been totally re-decorated with all new: living room, dining and bedroom furniture. New quilts, linens and decor. And has been freshly repainted. The photos were taken 2/9/2016


Emerald Dunes is the one of most popular family complexes in Destin’s Crystal Beach area!

This condo is our second home and we invite you to use it as your own. Our 3 bedroom condo is open and airy with all NEW furniture and decor. It has a nice kitchen with granite counter tops, front-loader washer/dryer, and BEACHFRONT MASTER. It has a balcony off the living room where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee while watching the dolphins frolicking or have an evening cocktail watching the sunset. Our condo is the perfect place for your family to use alone or to share with friends.

Because we have 2 master suites, both with King-size beds, attached baths and HDTV’s, neither couple will have to sacrifice the “bigger bed.” The third bedroom is perfect for another couple or the children with a Queen bed and a single upper bunk. You will be pleasantly surprised by all the 'extras' in our home that you would not normally find in a rental unit. No need to pack up your porta-crib, high chair, or sand toys, we have them all! And of course, you will love the white sand Destin beach that is just footsteps away.


Master BEDROOM #1 and Attached Bathroom

The Master suite has a King size bed with AMAZING views of the water from the bed. The beds are make with Egyptian cotton sheets, 2 night stands, reading lamps, HDTV.

There is also an attached dressing area which features a large, walk-in closet and a dressing area complete with a sink and mirror, which nicely optimizes bathroom time since one can be showering and the other can be getting ready—which leaves you with more time to spend on the beach! The attached full bathroom has a garden tub and a separate shower, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.

Master BEDROOM #2 and Attached Bathroom

The Master Bedroom 2 has a King size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, 2 night stands, reading lamps, HDTV.

The attached full bathroom has a tub/shower combination, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.


Our third bedroom is a unique layout that can accommodate another couple in a Queen bed or it would be a great spot for up to 3 children. It features a regular queen bed on the bottom and a twin-size upper bunk (with a regular twin mattress). There’s also a night stand and a closet.

This bedroom shares the Jack-and-Jill style bath with the 2nd master.



In our main living area we have a queen-size sofa sleeper with reading lamps nearby, we also have four side chairs which all provide ample comfortable seating . We also have an HDTV with digital cable channels, a DVD player and a blue tooth docking station so you can listen to your favorite tunes on your phone. The living room opens up to our balcony via sliding glass doors.



Our balcony chairs so you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee. The balcony faces the directly south so you can enjoy the morning sunrise and the evening sunset right from the balcony!



Our kitchen is beautifully appointed with granite counter tops. It’s also one of the best equipped you’ll ever find in a rental! We have a Keurig K-cup coffee maker, as well as a regular drip model, a blender that will grind all of your ice for frozen drinks, toaster and the other usual appliances. We have more than ample plates, glasses, forks, etc. so you don't have to wash your breakfast dishes before you eat lunch. We have plenty of pots and pans and baking pans. We also supply many “extras” such as cleaning products, trash bags, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, sugar, creamer and spices. The Dining area features a table and 6 chairs and 4 bar stools.



For your convenience, we also have a washer and dryer, and iron and ironing board.

And if you would like to keep up with friends, family or work while you are away, we provide free high-speed internet and WIFI.

About Tom and Christine

Hi, We're Tom, Christine, Zachary our two dogs Trumpet and Piccolo.

Tom and Christine purchased this condo in 2015

Why Tom and Christine chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have had our eye on Emerald Dunes for many years but condos in Emerald Dunes do not come onto the market very often. We we were able to purchase in here and we could NOT be more excited! We take great pride in our condos and try to give you the best rental experience. Our guests who stay with us comment on how well equipped our condos are. While it may not be your deciding factor when you are choosing places to rent, you will appreciate it once you get here. Most everything you’ll need during your stay is here! We we take special care to make sure everything is in perfect condition. It’s imperative that we have the best help there in Destin. We employ a housekeeper who only cleans for us! We do not use one of those massive cleaning companies who dash in and out of the condo in 15 minutes and call it clean. Our housekeeper takes hours to clean our condo (yes the cleaning fee is $10-$20 more than you’d pay with others but we ensure it’ll be really clean!)

What makes this condo unique

Emerald Dunes is a small, low density building with only 27 condos in the building, which means fewer people on the beach! And it's in a PERFECT location along Scenic Gulf Drive.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

We could not have picked a better place to stay. The view from our balcony was wonderful for our morning coffee, and late evening. The pictures represent this property to its fullest. It was beautiful, plenty of room for my kids and grandkids to play. Just a short walk to the private beach, the gated parking lot was a plus.

We did a helicopter ride, the pirate cruise, and lots of time on the beach.

I would definitely recommend this condo for your vacation. Nothing to complain about. Lots to do in Destin.

The customer service was great, always willing to help if we needed it.

Loved the donuts from the Donut Hole.

Thank you for sharing

Three Sisters Trip

  • 5 of 5

My first trip out to Destin. Staying at a fabulous property such as Tom's and Christina's has made our experience unforgettable. The condo was fantastic, everything you could possibly need to feel at home was there. The place was spotless and beautifully decorated. I slept on such a comfortable bed that I had to remember myself where I was every morning. I highly recommend our unit to anyone visiting Destin who prefers a high end condo on the beach, at a great price

Spectacular Beachfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Destin every year. After many, not-so-good experiences, I found Tom and Christine's properties. Now I ONLY stay with them because I can always be assured that their properties are impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. This is my 7th trip in their condos!

This was my first time staying in Emerald Dunes. Last time we stayed in Coral Reef Club which is just a couple of doors down. This condo is very large and spacious and as expected beautifully decorated (some of the exact same furniture as their other properties).

Christine seems to have a consistent formula for setting up condos. I always know what to expect in the kitchen, she uses nice towels and sheets and always has hair dryers and Keurig coffee machines!

I will be back for sure! But I am booking now before anyone else does Hahaha!

We have stayed in this general area for many years, and love the area. This condo HAS IT ALL!!! It is very, very clean, nothing lacking in the kitchen, the beds were wonderful, the furnishings very nice and the owners, property management so nice to work with.

This Condo was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed a week in this condo and it was perfect! The ocean view from the balcony was wonderful – it was so relaxing to be able to step outside at any time and enjoy the view and the ocean breeze. The location couldn’t be beat. We walked across the street to Camille’s for dinner and up to Barnes and Noble and the yogurt shop too. The Crystal Beach area is so walkable! Even driving to the grocery store only took a couple of minutes – loved that!

My friend is a super cook…and she found everything she needed in this kitchen! Plenty of pots, pans, dishes, glassware and utensils. It was like visiting a friend’s home – they even had spices, cleaning supplies and foil/plastic wrap. Sometimes with rentals you have to compromise your menu to work with a sparsely equipped kitchen - absolutely not here - our meals were really special and the dining area and balcony provided nice spaces to enjoy them.

The condo also had plenty of space to spread out…even the bathrooms are good-sized. The place was spotless - you could really tell that cleanliness is a top priority! The furniture was very nice and comfortable, and the beds were great. Being right on the beach was such a treat – just a walk downstairs to put your toes in the sand! I am looking forward to returning to Destin – and this wonderful home!
