We are super excited that you are considering renting our vacation home. We deeply believe in family and community and it is our goal is to make your vacation experience as rich and relaxing as possible. Our hope is that you will spend time sharing stories and having conversations on the back patio with the ones you love. (Don’t forget the bottle of wine!) A successful vacation in our opinion is one where relationships and families are strengthened as a result of staying at our home. We can’t wait to hear your story!
Our home, “Emerald Villa” is located in the gated community of Emerald Shores in Destin, Florida. We love Emerald Shores because it is one of most family friendly communities on the Emerald Coast and has a unique beach pavilion located directly on the sand with access to all guests. The community has 2 swimming pools (One seasonably heated), a basketball, tennis, and shuffleboard court that are easily accessible by the community sidewalks.
We love that the beach is just a short 7 minute walk away but after a long day in the sun or after a giant breakfast, we love catching the Emerald Shores Tram that will get you there in no time. (It is important to note that the tram only runs during the summer months.) If the beach isn’t your scene, you will enjoy being only 2 minutes from either swimming pool. Lounge chairs provided!
Our home has just one floor, which means no hauling luggage/groceries/babies up and down stairs. We enjoy the open floor plan which creates an environment suitable for game and movie nights after dinner! We also want to save you money on the rising cost of cell phone data so we included FREE WIFI in the house!
Here is a short description of all rooms in the house:

Emerald Villa! Family friendly beach house! Destin, Florida
Additional Location Information
Our home, â€œEmerald Villaâ€? is located in the gated community of Emerald Shores in Destin, Florida. We love Emerald Shores because it is one of most family friendly communities on the Emerald Coast and has a unique beach pavilion located directly on the sand with access to all guests. The community has 2 swimming pools (One seasonably heated), a basketball, tennis, and shuffleboard court that are easily accessible by the community sidewalks.
Emerald Shores is located just minutes from plenty of outlet shopping, malls, fine dining, casual dining, movie theaters, and some of the best golf Florida has to offer! Emerald Shores is great for the kids because of the gates at both ends of the community and house sits in a cul-de-sac so there is very little traffic. It is a very well kept neighborhood and the people are friendly and inviting!
