“Dont get room 401”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2014

401 is infested with roaches..and on the balcony was some type of insect I ended up with bright red bites on my feet and ankles...not mosquitos. ..elevator was broke 1st 2 days..When I discovered the roaches all 15 of them I called to complain and they gave me option to have it sprayed or moved to a different room...but no other rooms were available. ..we paid 2700 for this room and the last thing we should have worried about were the master bedroom stayed warm..bed was sagging and big couch very hard...very disappointed we won't be back to this condo

Response from the manager I am so sorry to see that there were these issues during your stay with us in unit 401 at Emerald Dunes. Thank you for taking the time to send this review so that we can continue to addresses the issue of pests in the unit. I have not seen many comments regarding this issue so it helps to know that there is a problem so that we can get it treated. Your input is valuable so that we can be aware of issues in a unit that might not be noticed because we are not able to spend the amount of time in them that our guests do. I can assure you that we are making great efforts regarding this issue and will also relay your comments to the owner regarding the bed and couch. Thank you so much for staying with Dale E. Peterson Vacations! We truly value you as our guest and if there is anything that I can do for you personally, please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, Andie Hamilton

“Spring Break 2013”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2013

We've stayed at Emerald Dunes on many occasions, but this rental left us sleepless. Do not be fooled by the age restrictions because 12 college revelers were staying above us. It's as if elephants on speed were let loose. We knew when they got up, when they came home from the bars and when they went to sleep. Although they were not noisy vocally, there is no noise buffer between the floors so you hear every stomp. If you are going at Spring Break time I would choose another unit. I loved the beach set up and the availability of the pool when the wind and temperature kept us off the beach. Love that the beach is private. Dale Peterson responded to all our inquires and are really super to work with on rentals. I appreciate their responsiveness before, during and after our stay.

We were stuck in the elevator when it broke on May 5. We just arrived for our long awaited for vacation on May 4. Elevator was broke most of our trip and we had to use the stairs. I had a very difficult time using the stairs, because I have kneee problems and am awaiting knee replacement surgery. It honestly ruined our entire trip that we had waited so long to enjoy. Emerald Dunes Management promised to move us, they did not, they did not act the least bit concerned that I was unable to use the stairs. I called various times to see about a refund of our trip, or at least a refund of the days that the elevator was not in used, but management would only credit me approx $450. The last I time I called, there was a meeting with the HOa and I was to receive a call back, but I never heard back. I had a family emergency and could not keep calling back. This was not our first trip to the Emerald Dunes, we stay there at least 3 times yrly and have done so for several yrs now. Not sure if I will be back. Brenda & Kreg Hunt

At first glance everything seems alright but once in the room you start to see different things. Couldn't cook in the oven because burnt grease was caked in the bottom and smoked up the room really bad. Under masterbed was an old gatorade bottle, the 2nd bedroom had filthy flipflops under it. Pots and pans had black burnt stuff caked all over them and dishes had food on them that took 2 washes to get them clean. Carpet needs replaced. If I were the owners, I would be very angry that my investment wasn't being taken better care of. It wasn't worth $2,000 to stay in. Very disappointed!

“This was a beautiful place to stay and the condo was beautiful.”

Reviewed 27 May 2011

All accomadations were as advertized and we had a wonderful stay. I only had a minor issue. We were not informed of the no trailer rule at the condo. All people that i spoke with from Dale Peterson were very nice and helped greatly. The grounds person was rude about the trailer being on the property and then almost our entire stay there was a trailer parked in the lot. All other aspects of our trip were wonderful. Thanks Kirt Gilbert

“Right on the Beach! Nice!”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2010

Everything was great except on-site maintenance/manager was a bit rude. Service came into unit to repair dryer and left spots of dirt or grease on carpet in front of dryer. When we tried to talk to on-site manager about spots on the carpet she was rude and didn't even look up from her desk as we spoke to her. She said the carpet was not part of her job. We thought that if it was cleaned up quickly it might not stain. I'm sure the owners of the unit would want their unit kept clean. Other than that, it was a very nice place to stay and the beach was beautiful!

“Very peaceful vacation.”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2009

My wife and I stayed at the unit below last year so we liked the location from the beginning. This unit was well stocked with everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Room was very clean and quiet. It was just what the doctor ordered!!!!! I would highly recommend this to anyone planning a vacation to Destin.

“Forget the stress”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2008

My family and I always travel to Florida. Always the Destin,Okalosa Island area. We love it there and hope one day to move there or at least have a condo. We went in June and then in Sept. I spend 12-13 hours on the road and then its nothing but relaxation and forgeting the worries of everyday life. The Destin area is the only place for me to vacation as far as I'm concerned. Please take your family and call Dale Peterson...they are great and the cheapest.
