About the property

Emerald Dunes 303 is Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

If you deserve a beach vacation with beautiful scenic views and a well-appointed, well located and a well thought out design, then you owe it to yourself to check out Emerald Dunes 303.

This Beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bath Destin vacation rental sits right on the white sand of the much sought after Crystal Beach area. Not only is it beach front, but it’s also close to area attractions, shopping and restaurants. This roomy and comfortable unit has been recently remodeled and updated with stylish upgrades throughout. The relaxing living area is open to the ample sized dining area and well-equipped kitchen with new granite counter tops and stainless appliances. The Primary suite features postcard perfect Gulf views and incomparable King size comfort. The attached ensuite offers an attached private vanity/dressing area and a massive walk-in shower. A guest room with another King bed shares a hall bath with a second guest bedroom with a Queen bed.

Besides the beautiful beach with its’ expansive dunes and swaying sea oats, Emerald Dunes also has a pristine, sparkling swimming pool and a luxurious hot tub surrounded by lush palms for your enjoyment. Emerald Dunes is a private, gated condominium with amenities that include the large pool, hot tub, gas BBQ grills, boardwalk showers, bathrooms and seasonal beach attendants. Along with all amenities, guests appreciate the private low density setting (only 27 units) and private dune walkover to the beach.

GREAT LOCATION! Located on the west end of Scenic Highway 98 in Crystal Beach, the property is within walking/biking distance of local shops and restaurants. When it’s time for dinner, Camille’s, a favorite local restaurant known for their fresh sushi and intimate bar, is just steps away. During the day, Camille’s sidewalk café serves a limited menu of coffee, smoothies, breakfast and lunch items and local brews. Also nearby, guests will enjoy access to Publix (grocery store) and Destin Commons, featuring a bowling alley, movie theater, restaurants and diverse mix of shopping opportunities.

We require a minimum length of stay during the summer and over holidays.
We do not rent to anyone under 25 or to students

perfect experience

Kerry N


Our second time in Destin and we absolutely will come back and stay at this location and unit. The building was extremely well kept. The community grills were spotless. Landscaping perfect. The unit is beach front and easy to walk right out to the beach. The condo is updated top to bottom and in excellent condition. The management company was easy to communicate with and extremely responsive. Really just a perfect experience. We also loved Camille’s restaurant right across the street.

true beach vacation

Melissa R


The location is beautiful, right on the white sandy beach! The kitchen is well stocked, with complimentary dish soap and detergent. The 3rd room is rather small, but good to sleep in. Check in and check out was easy. Remember the trash receptacle is outside the gate (we could not find it at first).

good unit



First the good, unit was clean and directly on the beach. Location was fantastic! What could have made it great would be extra blankets. There are no extra linens in the unit. As someone who is ALWAYS cold, extra blankets are a must. I normally bring my own and this time I forgot. There were no blankets for the pull-out couch only sheets. Would stay again, just bring my own blankets.

great place!

Everything was pretty much great except the pillows! They were really bad in all bedrooms—huge and way too thick to sleep on. That would be the only thing I would change. Loved that it was gated and inside and outside was well maintained. Loved being in the 3rd floor in a small complex. We would definitely stay again!

great place!

This condo was very clean and in a great location. The building does not have a lot of units so the private beach area is not crowded. Would recommend if you’re looking for a great condo on the beach.
