At Emerald Isle. No not Ireland. Okaloosa Island. This place is something you won’t expect. It’s only six miles from Destin. And it’s on its very own island. Here you’ll find a more laid-back atmosphere featuring the crystal clear emerald-green waters of the gulf and its 'sugar-white' beaches. That’s what Sonny Mann likes. Laaaaaiid Baaaack. And, because the island only allows seven-story tall buildings, you will find uncrowded beaches and friendly people. At the end of the Island (which is only about four miles long), you will find miles and miles of beaches to explore. What do you think about that?!? But I don’t want you to think there’s nothin’ to do here. There’s tons of stuff: over six miles of white sand, family oriented beaches featuring youth activities, nightlife, boardwalk, volleyball, parks, playground, beachside restaurants, surfing, fishing, water recreation, beach services, pavilions, parking lots, beach showers, life guards, boat ramp.
Okaloosa has the largest boardwalk in the Destin area with restaurants, nightlife, shops, playground area, volleyball nets, showers, restrooms, lifeguard station, fishing pier, and wheelchair access ramps. The 1,261 foot fishing pier is lighted for night-time fishing and has rod holders and benches built into it. You’ll find jets ski rentals, parasailing, airplane rides, beach umbrellas and beach services available throughout the Island. There’s a miniature golf center with batting cages and arcade located on the bay side of the island. So, if you’re looking for a great vacation with lots of water sports and of course a fabulous beach, Okaloosa Island is just the ticket to a memorable beach vacation.
What makes it even better is that Emerald Isle, is centrally located on the Island and offers heated swimming pool and tennis courts. Now there’s a nice addition!

We loved our stay in 604! The condo was very spacious and well kept. The only draw back is that there was no washer and dryer in the condo itself. But we would happily stay here again! Thanks so much!

Nice place for two families

We enjoyed the location and the property and would return if we decide to stay in the Ft. Walton area. Floors could have been a little cleaner and as for recommendations, I'd upgrade the TVs in the two smaller bedrooms and put a large flat panel on the wall in the main living area, also change the dining room table to one that does not have sharp corners(waste high for an adult and head high for a 4 year old). Other than that, everything else was as expected and very comfortable.

The only complaint I have is that the unit needs a larger hot water heater. One shower and we were out of hot water. Otherwise a great place to stay for a good value.

The Emerald of the Beach

From the moment we walked into our condo we had an amazing vacation. We had two young children with us and found out quickly that we were at the quiet end of the beach, which was great. It was never crowded during the day, and always quiet at night which was great for the family. We were very close to a grocery store and plenty of local restaurants that were so good! We were also very close to Destin and about 20 minutes from the outlet mall. I would highly recommend the Emerald Isle properties and I will definitely be staying there again.
