About the property

Emerald Dunes 601 Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

601 Emerald Dunes gets right to the point of why you’re in Destin- not for snow covered mountains or forested rivers, you’re here to behold the glorious Gulf Of Mexico. However, this Destin vacation rental does more than let you behold Destin’s rare coast, it lets you experience it! It’s so close to the water’s edge that its almost as if you’re adrift on the peaceful emerald waves.

One of the few two-storied condos in Emerald Dunes, everything about this penthouse condo revolves around the precious beaches beyond the balcony. From the three separate seating areas to the teal and tan color palette, everything is as comfortable as the soft sand below and as eye-catching as the Gulf’s expanse. Plus, 601 is not without its perks! The primary suite features a huge luxury bathroom with a spa bathtub and separate vanities; a washer and dryer make keeping your clothes sand-free an absolute breeze, and a wet bar upstairs in the loft sitting area provides another entertainment area for your group.

Resting in Crystal Beach which is known for its colorful houses and tree lined streets, Emerald Dunes is in a great walking neighborhood. Restaurants and shops are in the immediate vicinity while golf courses and several open-air malls are within a mile's radius. Plus, a gated entry, a grilling area and a pool deck round out Emerald Dunes perks.

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

Guests receive a welcome kit with small dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sponge, a roll of paper towels, and laundry detergent. There will be an initial trash liner in each receptacle and a set of toilet paper and soaps for each bathroom provided. Guests will need to replenish supplies for longer stays.

NOTE: Emerald Dunes is a SMOKE FREE, TOBACCO FREE property. No trailers, jet skis, RV's or boats are permitted.

This VRBO was perfectly set up for our group of 9 ages 11-16 for kids and 4 adults. The location was great. The condo it beautiful and well taken care off. The kitchen could use a cookie sheet and a cutting board though and I do wish they provided salt and pepper and maybe some olive oil in the welcome packet.

location, location, location!!


Our family has stayed at Emerald Dunes before and prefer this location to many other areas of Destin. Emerald Dunes 601 was by far the nicest of any condo or house we have rented. Perfectly located to take advantage of morning sunrises and evening sunsets, this condo - on the beach - had all the space and amenities we could have asked for. Our family of 10 had plenty of space to roam, and access to the pool and the private beach made the trip perfect for our grandchildren. A wonderful experience! Camille's across the street is an added bonus.

Took our son and his friends for spring break. The layout worked great. The loft upstairs allowed them to watch what they wanted on tv while we watched downstairs. Very spacious. It was not cramped at all.

great location

The property was very clean, location was great as well as the views! The only complaints would be that there were no spices, only one trash bag and no shampoo or conditioner. These items should be standard in a vacation rental. I would also recommend for all rentals to include a full length mirror. Otherwise, the place was great. Would rent again.

We have been to Destin several times and we've always stayed in some really nice places but this particular condo was the most amazing one by far. Location was excellent, condo was emaculant, decor was beautiful. Check-in and checkout was so simple. This is the only place I want to stay when I visit.

The property is exactly like the pictures but to be inside this condo is everything. We rented this for our first family trip to Destin and I am very pleased with the location, view, and amenities the condo provides. I highly recommend and will use for another visit.

can’t ask for more!



This is a very well maintained, located and furnished condo. Exactly as shown in the pictures. The view from the master bedroom is so pleasing. A minutes walk from the beach with private access, no crowd. Will stay here again. The sit out could be bigger though.

Excellent condo and has everything that is shown. The property is very well maintained and got enough privacy. Private access to the beach reduces the crowd. Everyone from our party has enjoyed the place!
