Our family of 4 stayed at Erin's Emerald Isle for our vacation in October. The house was incredible, just as we had hoped for. I would go as far as to say even better than we expected! We have been a number of places over the years, but this is by far the nicest vacation home we have ever stayed in!
This was our first trip to Destin but after the great experience we had here, it will not be our last! Rebecca and Paul were excellent to deal with from the very beginning stages of planning our trip to making us feel as we were part of the family while staying at the property. The house is decorated perfectly and is everything you would hope for in a beach house! There was even a welcome basket for us when we arrived. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials needed if you decide to stay in and make a home cooked meal. The house was equipped with a huge smart TV in the living room and flat screens in every bedroom which both my son and daughter loved! The beds were super comfortable!
You could not ask for a better location! Only about a minute walk to the community pool which has a Tropical theme complete with palm trees as well as a hot tub. There are many restaurants within walking distance of the community including an ice cream shop that my daughter made sure we visited on more than one occasion!
It took us less than 10 minutes to walk to the beach which is right down the street. So close that we would sit out on the balcony at night listening to the waves from the ocean. To make the walk easier, they have a nice beach wagon to transport any of the beach toys and the beach chairs that they provided for us to use during our stay. This was a nice touch and very much appreciated.
We were lucky enough to have two other families that we are friends with vacationing in Destin at the same time. We all got together one evening for dinner and then came back here for cake and ice cream to celebrate the birthday of one of our friends. When they saw this place they were all amazed and said that it was much nicer than where they were staying. They asked for Rebecca and Paul's information and both said they will be contacting them for their future visits.
I would highly recommend booking with Rebecca and Paul and staying at Erin's Emerald Isle! We just got back to Missouri and are already looking forward to our next visit!
Overall very satisfied! This was our 1st annual girls trip. We had 8 adults and this house fit us perfectly. Only dings are the ants in the kitchen, giant water stain on the living room ceiling and the lack of dusting any of the fixtures. The kitchen was well equipped, bedrooms were lovely and the 2nd living area on the 2nd floor was great for spreading out.
A small suggestion would be a bench for the master shower. My elderly mother was with us and she struggled standing in the shower. It would also be great to help with shaving! 😁
