“Exceeded Expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We absolutely loved this property. We have stayed at several different properties in Destin and this is by far our favorite. The location is the best, near everything but with easy access. The beach is just steps from the condo, no long beach walks or massive stairs to climb. It has 2 awesome pools that were kept sparkling clean, and surrounded by a well kept lawn and landscaped trees and shrubs. It had 2 awesome hot tubs that were never over crowded with people. The rooms were up to date, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The view from the condo is amazing, balconies are very large and spacious. Also, you never had to wait on a elevator to show up, and when you get off your room is just steps away. Great floor plan. An added bonus here is that you have access to a completely covered parking garage, that is just steps from your elevator, you don't have to walk forever in the heat to get to your car. This could not have been any nicer. Loved this place and hated to leave. Will be sure to come back to this place next time.

What a wonderful trip! We only planned for 4 days and will surely be going again. This unit was spotless and in an overall good position in the resort. What a wonderful treat to have beach chairs and an umbrella waiting each day for a restful stay.

had an awesome time in Destin. The condo was real nice and spacious. It had all I expected and then some. Newman-Daily staff was very helpful and professional. Checking in and out was a breeze! I will definitely stay again and every time I go to the beach for vacation. Condo was very clean and had every thing one would need to stay as long as their pockets will let them!!!

Room Tip: call Newman-Daily!!!!!!!

I didnt stay at jade east. I was at hidden dunes 604. It was an awesome location. However, it needs some maintenance and a thorough cleaning. The carpet and kitchen floor was filthy. The light over the stove did not work. The bathroom faucet leaks. Some outlets dont work.

Emerald Beach House is a large, beautiful house with many amenities. The house sleeps 22, but oddly the main living area has only one sofa and one love seat on which to sit, both of which are worn out, broken down, and very uncomfortable. Just ask my back! Most of the chairs by the pool are also either uncomfortable or in need of repair. There was absolutely no comfortable spot for our family of just seven to sit and visit together. The kitchen was nicely stocked but lacked a whisk and needed more teaspoons.

One of the biggest aggravations of our week was the 12 hour-a-day noise from the balcony repair on the condos outside our back door and next to our pool. Other than the noise which they could not control but also did not inform us about, Newman-Dailey responded to our every concern very quickly and pleasantly. The carpet in the downstairs master bedroom was so dirty that I would not walk barefoot on it, and ND offered to have it steam-cleaned immediately. They replaced an AC unit on the third floor within 24 hours after it was reported and also took care of several other problems promptly. On the negative side for ND, we were given an incorrect gate code to the private beach (lack of detail by the office) which required a much further walk than was necessary to enter and exit the beach on our first day - a major inconvenience for a couple of 70-year-olds.

Would I return to Emerald Beach House? No, not unless the furnishings had been updated for comfort and more added. Would I use Newman-Dailey again as a rental agency? YES. They did what they could to handle every problem that was within their ability. I do believe that a few basic requirements from ND which owners have to meet concerning comfort and cleanliness (not housekeeping clean) and an occasional inspection by ND concerning complaints received might well have prevented some of the aggravations/problems we experienced. My overall rating would have been 4 or 5 stars had we had enough comfortable furniture inside and out for our family to visit together, clean carpets and furniture, and no construction noise 12 hours a day.

Room Tip: Ask about the condition and comfort of the furniture and whether there are enough comfortable seats...

Thank you for posting a review of your stay at Emerald Beach. Your comments are very important to us. I appreciate your compliments regarding our staff and their service. We are very disappointed that this time regardless of our efforts we fell short of meeting your expectations. After your departure I visited the home in order to better understand and see for myself. Using your email as a guide I was able to make clear notes for the owner and we will work together to make the necessary improvements to bring Emerald Beach back to the beautiful, comfortable home that it has always been. We look forward to hosting your next vacation. Please feel free to contact me directly and I will make sure the property is ready for your arrival.

We've been going to Destin for years and have found our favorite place to stay. Quiet surf II unit#3 is our favorite! The location is really great right on old hwy 98 along the beach. There are running paths along the road for runners, walkers, bicycles etc. the slow speed limit along this stretch makes it safe for little ones too. The unit is beautifully decorated with warm wood tones and earthy paint colors and fabrics. My favorite about this unit is when you walk out the back door you have your own private very large deck to barbque on and just a few steps down you're on the beach and a few yards away from the water! We will definitely be requesting this unit again! Also Newman Dailey is the BEST to work with! They are very accommodating!
