This unit was great because it was so roomy. Being an end unit, we benefited from sweeping views of the beach, and could see the sun come up in the morning and set in the evening.
The unit was well stocked, however, we found some dishes and spoons that had been put away but had food stuck on them. Otherwise, most of what you would need was there.
We appreciated having a roll of paper towels, some toilet paper, a couple of trash bags, some liquid dish detergent, and a couple pellets of dish machine detergent to start us off. There were plenty of towels available for our group, and that was nice.
We took this trip while many schools/universities were on Spring Break. Having a quiet place for our family was very important to us. Please note that while Southern Rentals makes a big deal about saying they don't rent to anyone under 25, we did not know that the building was a condo owned by any number of people or having more than one rental agency offering units on it. When we got there, there were plenty of college students (and their ridiculous, noisy attitudes) there. So beware of that.
The one thing that contributed to this review not being better was the quality of the beds. The master bedroom bed was *awful.* Both my husband and I came home to schedule appointments with chiropractors, as our backs were shot from sleeping on that bed. Read more
Thank you for the review during you stay with Pointe South Vacation Rentals. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the unit and the breath taking views offered by our slice of paradise! While all units at Emerald Isle are privately owned and have to option to rent to whomever, there is an onsite HOA that requires all parties adhere to the complex rules/regulations (quiets hours, pool safety, etc.)
I thank you for you feedback and hope to see you again next year.

Fanstastic View, new furnishings, great location

The condo is beautiful. We literally watched the sunset and sunrise from the large ocean facing windows.
Location was also great b/c almost all the well reviewed restaurants in the area are directly across the street or a few blocks away.
The only downside is that it's a condo so you have slightly less privacy and you have to use the elevators a bunch. It's basically like a really nice hotel. Oh... by the way, December weather in Pensacola is 50-60F. Wish I would've checked that out before :)

This was our second stay at Emerald Isle; we love the building and dealing with Southern Vacation Rentals as they are courteous, professional and most helpful.
We absolutely loved Unit #1201- it is comfortable and homey but the best part is the vast wall of windows-in the den, master bedroom and sitting at the kitchen table. Watching the water, beach, sunrises and sunsets from the unit are priceless.
Emerald Isle is our choice to stay at on Pensacola Beach because of its beauty, proximity to restaurants in the area and the bridge to Gulf Breeze. We relished everything about our visit to Pensacola Beach and staying in Unit #1201. We look forward to our next trip-hopefully very soon!
Best vacation ever!

The check-in and check-out process was super easy! The staff at the Southern Vacation Rentals office were really friendly when we checked in. The condo was great. We had plenty of space and the view from the balcony was beautiful. We had everything we needed during our stay and the condo was exceptionally clean. The location was great. Pretty much everywhere we went was within walking distance. It only took about a minute to be on the beach after leaving the building. We were busy doing stuff each day we were there such as laying on the beach, swimming in the ocean, watching dolphins from the balcony, golfing, riding jetski's and go-karts, parasailing, dolphin cruise, shopping and taking a walk down the boardwalk. The two pools and hottub were nice. The restaurants were nice too. Our favorite was Peg Leg Pete's! What we liked best about our stay here was the awesome view from the balcony and the fact that we were never bored because there was so much to do. The weather really worked in our favor too. Low 80's, lots of sunshine and no rain during our entire stay. The least thing we liked was having to pack up and make the 12 hour drive back home! We look forward to coming back and would highly recommend that anyone who is looking for a relaxing fun-filled beach vacation to definitely consider this.

The location was ideal and access to the beach, shopping and grocery stores was perfect. Great opportunity to search for shells-recommend you start early in the day. View was spectacular and the sound of waves very relaxing. Could see sting ray groups in the waves. Great movie and game collection, which was perfect for rainy weather.
Would recommend having more supplies available, we ran out of dishwasher detergent and toilet paper, and we had to buy laundry detergent, sponges and towels for the kitchen. The kitchen is well supplied for cooking, the ceramics do get very hot in the microwave. The decor and colors were vibrant and inviting.
We were very impressed with the check-in procedure, the gentleman even waited about 10 minutes for us as we were caught in traffic. Parking was easy and close in. They did hose off the exterior halls on all the floors while we were there. This appeared to include ceilings, walls and floors. This time of year it stayed wet for days.
We had a grand time, the beds were comfortable and the hot tub and pool were divine!! Read more

We really enjoyed staying in 1201. There were tons of games and movies for a rainy day and the condo had everything else that we needed. The patio could have been cleaner as the mat was full of sand. Read more

Emerald Isle is a fabulous condo and particularly #1201 with the views! It is in a very busy area but central location for stores and restaurants. Would love to rent at Emerald Isle again and particularly this condo. Biggest issue was the floors in our condo were very dirty, with cobwebs in lots of sand. I reported to the receptionist at Southern Resorts so they could report to their cleaning crew to do better. Read more

Great place to stay!

This rental exceeded our expectations. We are a family of four and also had my in-laws along. It was spacious, nicely decorated, clean, and with a well-stocked kitchen. Most importantly it had the best views. Direct ocean view with no obstructions. Can see in all directions. We would definitely stay here again.
We ate at several local restaurants and Flounders rated the highest for our family.

This was a last minute trip, we had never been to Pensacola before and we will be back! The check-in was very efficient. We lease condos/houses all over the us and Mexico, and the condo we leased at Emerald Isle (#1201) will rank as one of our favorites! We traveled with our daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandchildren; the condo had plenty of room!

The condo was clean and comfortable, and had a spectacular view. We loved watching the beach sun rise without ever leaving the condo. We were only able to stay a few days, but we really enjoyed the condo. We would love to stay here again.
Spectacular view and condo

We read varying reviews of other condos at the same building and number 1201 is the best! The views are the best you can get and the layout of the condo was great! We fixed meals, did laundry and lived in total comfort the time we were there. The place and grounds were very well maintained and the location was perfect. We will be back for sure. Another reviewer mentioned the carpet and yes, it has some spots but I wouldn't really expect much in that department with being right on the beach. Stuff gets dirty! Having said that the rest of the place was spotless. A+++ Read more

This condo was not only very large, but very nice and with a wonderful view. It is a corner unit so you get an almost panoramic view of the ocean. I really liked that the condo was a 3 bedroom but the bedroom with 2 beds had 2 full beds instead of twins. The condo location was great with shops across the street and the pool leading out to the actual beach. The staff at the rental office was super friendly and provided all necessary information without me having to ask for it. Pickup and drop off of the keys was also easy considering the rental office was across the street. The price was very reasonable for a 3 bedroom as well. I would definitely love to stay in this condo again. Read more
