We love this place

  • 5 of 5
We are snowbirds from Wisconsin and we just spent 3 months in this unit. We love this place. I cannot say enough good things about our stay. This unit is spacious and thoughtfully designed to take advantage of the picturesque views of the gulf, pools and tropical settings. It is beautifully decorated and well stocked. There are plenty of great eating places nearby within walking distance. The landlord was great to work with. We had no problems at all. If we needed something I would email her and she was very responsive. The staff at the Emerald, including the maint. people, were friendly and very helpful. Thank you Barb for setting us up in this condo. We highly recommend this place.

Great Quick Getaway--Trouble Free

  • 5 of 5
Spent a few days in this unit for a quick R&R for the weekend. The Unit was very spacious and absolutely beautiful. The view was amazing and the covered balcony made it even better! The pool area is fabulous and the amenities at this property is great. Very well maintained property and this unit was perfect. Everything we needed was provided which made running to the store for minor things was not even necessary. A great stay and highly recommend it

Beautiful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Emerald By the Sea is an unexpected delight. The condo areas are impeccably clean, and the staff on the 6th floor are superb. The condo unit we stayed in was well stocked with everything we needed for our stay, was impeccably clean, and had plenty of room for my family. The pool area on the 6th floor is an amazing area to spend the day with family and friends. I would recommend this location to anyone.

Beautiful Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Emerald by the sea is a great place to relax with an extremely friendly and helpful staff. The owners have done a wonderful job decorating this condo and make it very vacation friendly. Beautiful view from the patio and a great place to get up early and watch the shrimp boats and the dolphins while having your morning coffee. We would love to come back and like the condo's enough to possibly buy one.
