This is a fantastic location and comfortable condo. The location and privacy on the beach almost cant be beat in FL. You are close to the convenience of 98 but you would never know it from the condo. The beach is fantastic and since it is a small building, not crowded.
Plenty of space in the condo.
We loved it and hated leaving.
The beach service was great. Umbrella and chairs that I don't have to carry are awesome. And who knew how much fun it was to PaddleBoard.
Week at the beach

Emerald Dunes #405 was beautiful, clean and a wonderful view of the ocean and beach. This is our third year staying at Emeral Dunes facility, but #405 has been the far better condo!!! The only thing that I would have liked differently would have been able for us to have gotten into the condo earlier than 4:00 p.m. without an additional fee.
We look forward to future vacations in Destin in this cond.

The condo was very clean, updated and very comfortable. It was very well furnished. I liked the security on the property.
The weather was perfect and the beach was nice and clean. The water was crystal clear and of course the sand was as white as sugar.
All in all, we enjoyed it very much.

We have stayed in #405 for 5 or 6 years and it has always been perfect until this year. 405 itself is still great for us!! The large size of the couch is perfect and one reason we love this rental! However, it isn't as clean as it once was. You can tell that the carpet in the bedrooms is getting older. This year we had some neighbors below us that were unusual for this condo. They were mouthy (yelling at people and cussing) and scummy looking. I was very uncomfortable alone with them in the elevator. I wouldn't let our little boy go anywhere alone because of them and I didn't use the elevator alone again. This has always been a very family oriented place and we have always felt perfectly safe until this year with those guys. Also, we had to deal with public beach people this year. We have never had to do that! They tried to take over! "Beach Boy" had to chase them off very often. They would just come in with all their stuff and plop down in front of us. They left trash etc etc! Emerald Dunes has always been perfection with other families! This year, we dealt with trashy people and a public beach. We may have to move to another condo because of these problems.

As always we enjoyed our stay in Destin thanks to wonderful accommodations arranged through Southern Resorts. The view was wonderful. The condo was well equipped.
Only negative thing was perhaps a personal preference the master bedroom bed was dreadfully hard and the lack of mattress pad didn't help.
The condo we had rented for many years previously was not available this year as we had waited late to book; I think perhaps our procrastination may have paid off. We have a new favorite.

We had a wonderful time on the beaches of Destin. The condo was clean (even if the upholstry and bedding were a bit worn) and very comfortable. The kitchen was nicely equiped. We ran out of dishwasher tablets and toilet paper - it would have been nice to be able to get more. The woman who seemed to be in charge of the condos was less than friendly.
Will visit Destin again, but will not stay in this unit

This unit needs to be cleaned!! The sofa, chairs, area rugs are filthy. The bed linens were nasty. We rented a large unit for extended family & there were no linens for the sofa bed--as were advertised. The kitchen was very large & nice but many of the dishes were very dirty & had to be scrubbed & rewashed!! The view was great!! There was ample sitting room. Pocket door in MBR was broken (spring & wheels) & took 2 days to be repaired!! The bathroom situation down by the pool is dangerous!!! Since its keyless the lock on the doornob just spins & there is a latch very high to lock the door--it does not work well & if a child flipped it shut they could not open it because it sticks & you have to push the hinge to release it--the fan must be on for the light to work in this Bthrm & they would not be able to hear you giving them these instructions--also they should not leave the door unlocked while going to the bthrm. We have older children that are small in stature & would find it difficult to reach these adult head level locks, but are at an age where they don't need parental assistance in the BR. Also, any pretator could grab a child & have them in this BR with that latch locked & no one could get in there to rescue them!!! Very dangerous!!!

This condo was spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. It has a great ocean view and is an end unit with more windows than usual.
Great location, perfect view.

Emerald Dunes is a very well tended and comfortable condo. As soon as we returned from our stay there, I wanted to book again for a stay in the spring. The view from 405 is perfect for watching the gorgeous sunsets. The kitchen and living areas were a great size for two people and I think four people would be very comfy there. I especially enjoyed that the kitchen was stocked with anything you could possibly need or want to cook anything you wanted. The condo was also very quiet, I never heard outside noise at night. Also, across the street is a bike rental place which I thought was super convenient since Scenic 98 is a good place to ride. I personally can't wait to go back because I think I have found my "go to" spot for my annual treks to Destin.

Everything was fine with a few exceptions:
1) cd player for music was broken
2) two rolls of t.p. for two people for a seven day stay was inadequate.
3) A samll packet of laundry detergent would have been nice.
4) free wify should be expected: instaead had to pay an exhorbitant fee of 16.95 for 72 hours of access. Read more
Response from Southern Vacation Rentals - 02/10/2011
Thank you so much for the review and I'm glad you had a "peaceful" stay. I sincerely apologize about the issues listed in your review but I appreciate you bringing them to our attention. 1. We will repair or purchase a new cd player. 2. We supply the initial supply of toiletries in each of our rentals. We leave two rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom. 3. We supply one packet of laundry detergent placed on top of the washer so I apologize if one was not left for you. I will address this with our team and in the future if you are unable to find one give us a call and we will be happy to bring one over for you. 4. I am sorry to hear you paid for internet access. We have free wifi set up in this room so I am wondering if you might have logged onto another condo's wireless signal. There is a binder on the kitchen counter with instructions on how to log in and if you ever have any trouble give us a call and we will do our best to help. Thanks again for the review and for choosing Southern Resorts. We hope to see you again soon.
At your service,
Director of Guest Services

Our first trip to Destin

The condo unit itself was wonderful - nicely furnished,updated and equipped! The beaches were the most beautiful beaches we have seen in a long time - white sand and clear ocean. Our family is used to vacationing on the outer most islands of NC and SC, therefore we were not a fan of all the traffic and crowded beaches. A little too crowded for our liking. The condo was very loud. The noise outside the condo was very loud (especially for our young son to sleep)at night time. A lot of slamming doors, etc. The renters above us were very loud as well, which created a lot of noise in our unit. The unit was not very sound proof and the renters above us kept us up late at night with all the noise. Overall, we enjoyed the beach and warm weather during our stay. Thank you. Read more

I would like to thank you for taking the time to review your stay, and for sharing your concerns with us. It is an absolute joy to hear you enjoyed our white sandy beaches and the crystal clear Gulf. It is not good to hear about the noisy neighbors. If a problem like this occurs again please call our guest service line. Open 7 days a week, we will notify the property manager and make sure the problem is resolved. We hope to have you and your family back again to indulge in our fabulous Gulf of México!

We love staying at Emerald Dunes! This was the third year that we have stayed in the exact same condo. It is our home away from home! I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Destin. Southern Resorts has been absolutely super in every way every time we have booked with them. I wouldn't change a thing! Emerald Dunes is close to everything and the condo is very roomy and clean! We especially like the condo being on the corner because we have a view of the ocean from every room.

This unit was a corner unit & a very quiet location. The kitchen had all of the necessities needed to make meals and the unit itself was very clean. The promixity to the beach and shopping was wonderful. Parking in the lot was also always very quick and easy. Our family will rent at Emerald Dunes again if we vacation in Destin again!
