Emerald Beach House is pure Destin from top to bottom! Custom tile and wood floors in natural shades, colorful walls in the hues of Sweet Tarts complimented by vibrant furnishings and decor say Welcome to Destin! Every room- from the two master suites with jacuzzi baths to the additional three bedrooms- enjoys the echoes of waves lapping the shore and palm trees swaying at the beach across the street.
Designed to be a fabulous Destin vacation home for several fabulous families, Emerald Beach House features three floors of very versatile spaces. The beach bums in your group can walk a few steps to the shores of the Gulf, pool people can... recline on the private pool and spa deck and movie lovers can relax in either of the two entertainment rooms with wet bars and flat screen TVs.
After a blissful day in Destin, everyone can gather in the huge dining room and kitchen. Cooking will be a pure pleasure with all the upgraded appliances, granite counters and chef-ready cookware at your disposal. Then, with happy tummies and contented hearts the two large balconies with beach views create the perfect perches for soaking up the magenta rays of a famous Destin sunset.
This home's setting in the luxury beach community of Avalon guarantees visitors an excellent location. A paved bike path runs along Avalon's southern edge leading to beach front restaurants and shops heading east and west along the coast. Plus, Emerald Beach House is very close to award-winning shopping, dining and golf. Seascape, Emerald Bay and Regatta golf courses are less than five minutes in three directions and no less than six more courses are within the vicinity. Moreover, the nation's largest factory stores, Silver Sands, are just at the end of the beach road where Emerald Beach House rests and the popular Destin Commons is only a few minutes in the other direction. The beach inspired charm of this Destin vacation rental combined with its location is the ultimate way to experience Destin's captivating spirit.

This was the third year in a row our family used Newman-Dailey Resort Properties for our family Thanksgiving get-together. While all of the homes were great, the Emerald Beach House was more than ample to accomodate our 19 family members. The location, serenity and conveniences were superb! Our family would highly recommend using Newman-Dailey for your family retreats!
Great House For Families
Left on 09/27/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | SPickens
This home is really accommodating and lots of space for everyone. The availability of at least a small refrigerator on each floor is fantastic. The accommodations are very spacious. The beds were comfortable, the couches are really not comfortable to sit on for any length of time and those could definitely be updated. The kitchen is really well supplied with cooking utensils and various dishes. I was pleasantly surprised. There is an extra refrigerator in the garage and that made it nice that we could by a week's groceries for 17 people all in one trip! The pool and spa were very nice and well cleaned. On the down side We did have one issue with the gas grill, in the middle of cooking on labor day the gas would no longer work. We had used it previously and it was fine. There was gas, but apparently the regulator stopped working. When I called I was told someone would contact me (I wasn't sure whether they were going to bring a replacement right away or not, so after waiting 30 mins with no call, we transferred our food into the oven to cook. I only wish someone had called me back to say they wouldn't be out until a regular work day. There were issues with the cable and the internet. We did report this and after a few days it was fixed. The management people were very good about responding and they did compensate us for the inconvenience. The only real drawback if you have people with mobility limitations the 3rd floor is a long way up. We had some young families so the stairs weren't bad except for our elderly parents, who stayed on the second floor. I would recommend the home again. Read more

Fantastic home for large group
Left on 08/01/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Tim
With 22 people we had no issues with space. The three living areas with kitchen counters and fridges on each of the three floors provide enough separation one never feels cramped or cooped up. Great views from the two balconies. We had 10 kids in our group and they never got bored with the pool outside and the beach only two minutes away with private access and two beach umbrellas and four chairs designated for your residence daily. If I ever go back to the beach with my family again
this where I would stay.
Wonderful Celebration at the Emerald Beach House
Left on 12/09/2012 for a stay in November 2012 | Turtle Tracks
I was celebrating my birthday and the Emerald Beach House was the perfect home for my family and friends. Three floors made it spacious and roomy enough to comfortably accomodate our party of 11 adults and 7 kids. The family room was perfect for watching football or playing games and opened onto the veranda and pool, giving it an open feel.
The team at Newman-Dailey were welcoming and helpful from check-in and throughout our stay. They tried to accomodate our request to heat the pool but unfortunately a broken part kept the temperature cool. Of course, that didn't stop the kids from swimming.
The beach is a perfect place for a celebration and a Destin vacation rental is perfect for bringing everyone together. Next time, I'd like to try the Newman-Dailey Celebration Vacation package with meal and portrait session.
Great experience! My family and I had a blast. I would highly recommend Emerald Beach House.
One of our best vacations ever.

Great location, near the beach

This was our 2nd time staying at this house and had noticed the update of paint and minor cosmtic fixes that had been done. With the location being so close to the beach it is wonderful. We had 13 staying at the house and there was plenty of room. Our only complaint was that the tile floor was not very clean and due to the time we were staying, the private beach access code was changed and we were not informed that it would change. We had to find out from other neighborhood vacationers what the code was since the office took more than a day to find out the new code.
25th Wedding anniversary/Pool Nightmare
Left on 08/21/2010 for a stay in August 2010 | Anniversary Trip
This trip was our 25th Wedding anniversary and my family along with my brother's family spent the week in Destin. Emerald Beach House is basically right across the street from the beach. It had plenty of space. The beach and water were wonderful. We had beach service and Matt "the umbrella/chair man" was very nice. The only big problem we had was the pool/spill over spa. We arrived on Saturday night after a long drive to find the pool/spa was not working and was filled with sand. The next day we went to the Newman Dailey office and let them know the situation. We were informed that the pool couldn't be fixed until Monday. The gentlemen arrived Monday afternoon to replace the pump on the pool, and told us they would return on Tuesday to finish with the spa. They never arrived on Tuesday and the pool/spa was still dirty and not working properly. On Wednesday morning, we called Newman Dailey to inform them of the situation, and the property manager assured us the problem would be taken care of. A pool gentleman arrive and left within 30 minutes with the problems in the spa still not fixed. My husband called Newman Dailey yet again, and then the pool person called my husband to say he couldn't be there until Thursday. My husband told him that was unacceptable, and he would be talking with Newman Dailey. The pool person was at the home later in the afternoon. The spa was finally fixed on Friday morning with our check-out being the following day. The pool and spa were never cleaned during our stay. We rented the home because of the pool/spa and never would have stayed the week if we had known it was going to take all week to fix. Overall having to fight to have the pool/spa problems fixed cast a dark cloud over an otherwise enjoyable week with family. We will be enjoying the beaches of the gulf again, but may not use Newman Dailey as our rental agency. Read more

We appreciate you taking the time to comment regarding your vacation at Emerald Beach. Good or bad, we always welcome reviews so we may continue to strive towards 100% customer satisfaction. Although we made every effort to resolve the pool/spa pump issues in a timely manner, situations beyond our control made this difficult. Compensation was given; however, we do realize this does not make up for the aggravation and inconvenience experienced during your family’s time together. As Property Manager, I will contact you directly to offer my assistance in reserving your next vacation with Newman- Dailey Resort Properties. Lisa Morgan~ Property Manager
first trip to Destin family and friends vacation
Left on 07/09/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | lucefamily
The house was so much more than the pictures show! We were so thrilled with all the space. Our group of 16, included both sets of grandparents, 8 kids ranging from age 17- 9 months, and 4 more adults and we had plenty of room for togetherness or for peaceful relaxation. The layout allowed for different groups to enjoy their own activities. The weather was not on our side, so we actually spent alot more time in the house than we had planned and luckily for all of us we picked the perfect house. Close enough to get to the beach in between rain storms. Other than being directly on the beach there isn't any reason to stay at a different home. We hope to get to visit again.
House was large enough for 4 families

Everything was fine with the house and pool . The location to the beach was perfect. Being next to a hotel was the only fault we could find. The hotel had some noisy guests at night and the light from the hotel made the bedrooms light.

We had a fantastic experience at the Emerald Beach House. So much space, everyone had exactly what they needed. Three full stories including a game room! Our twin two year olds managed the stairs quite well and the alarm on the patio doors was helpful to keep them away from the pool without supervision.

Nice home, great location. A little crowded on the street as far as how close the homes are together and the condos directly behind. However, in a quite cul-de-sac. Very close walking distance to the beach.
Overall we had a great time and the house was plenty of room for all 12 of us. The kids enjoyed the pool at night..never could get the hot tub heated up.
It was a fabulous week and we would stay there again.
The greastes vacation ever!!!!!!!

This house is great for multiple families. It is in good condition. Close to the beach. The pool and hot tub make this wonderful for kids and adults. We are very pleased the owners do not rent to non-families. Although the weather was rainy the week we stayed there, this house with it's multiple rooms gives ample space for indoor activities such as video games, movies, air hockey, board games, and cards.

THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME IN EMERALD BEACH HOME AND WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME. IT WAS BIG ENOUGH TO HANDLE OUR FAMILY'S NEEDS AND CLOSE TO THE BEACH. THE GRANDKIDS LOVED HAVING OUR OWN POOL RIGHT OUT THE BACK DOOR. WE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE FREEZER, BUT NEWMAN DAILY SENT SOMEONE RIGHT OUT TO CHECK IT AND EVEN CALLED US BACK TO SEE IF WE HAD FOOD THAT SPOILED. THE OWNER OF THE HOUSE WAS SO NICE TO US WHEN WE CALLED TO RENT AND WHEN WE WANTED AN EXTRA NIGHT TO STAY. THANKS ALOT, WE WILL USE THE EMERALD HOUSE AGAIN.
