The upgrades of this two-story beach front Destin vacation rental- a luxury Primary suite boasting a giant walk-in stone shower with dual shower heads; the rarity of a full laundry room; a furnished and private beachfront balcony; granite countertops throughout and beautiful plank wood floors- are sure to definitely keep you smiling. Plus, Emerald Dunes guests enjoy deeded beach access, gated parking and a spacious pool deck. Additionally, set on the scenic beach road, Emerald Dunes is not only directly on the beach but its also within walking distance to multiple restaurants, a coffee shop, shopping and entertainment venues.

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 loved our stay. Loved the private beach! Could see the entire ocean from the master bedroom. Dreamy! Greatest little coffee shop across the street! Would stay again.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this property. Beautiful balcony view right on the beach with easy access. Very close to shopping and dining. Within a quaint neighborhood with friendly people. We had no issue with communication. Check-in and check out was a breeze. We'll be back soon!

oceanfront week!

Brittany R


Tons of space in this beautiful oceanfront property. Kids loved being so close to the beach. The beach service chairs were super convenient and kept us from lugging chairs back and forth. We will definitely stay here again!

fantastic experience

Brandy J


The condo was immaculate and just as described. The bedrooms were even larger than expected; no crawling over suitcases due to limited space. The bathrooms were more upscale than previous condos in which we have stayed and owned! The private beach was quiet and uncrowded, and the beach service was an added bonus. The views of the ocean from the balcony were breathtaking. We were thoroughly impressed with the communication with the management company throughout the booking, arrival, and checkout process. We have found THE CONDO we will be booking for all of our future Destin vacations!!!

Wow! Right on the beach in a gated complex, this Emerald Dunes unit is a sure-fire beach vacation winner! It had everything we could ever ask for for a week of fun in the sun! Plus it had a great separate 2nd floor bedroom that was perfect for the kids to have their own space. It was right on the water and close to everything we like to do in Destin. we cant wait to go back.

great beach vacation


Unit 502 at Emerald Dunes gets five stars from my family. We had a great beach vacation experience at this upscale condo! It was right on the beach which was my number one requirement and it was a really nice open floor plan. The complex is very nice too, and we never felt crowded like you can in so many other places. I would highly recommend this unit.

we will be back


We just had the most relaxing and joyful week at Emerald Dunes 502. This fantastic condo right on the beach checked off all our vacation “must haves”. First , it was right on the beach! Second, it was clean and comfortable with a million dollar view and it was located near all the restaurants and shopping that we like to do when we are in the area. Third, it was a beautiful unit and you could tell the owners have really put a lot of thought into it for their guests. Newman Dailey was super easy to work with too! We will be back!
