Your family will have a great beach vacation in Destin, Florida, when staying at PALMETTO PALMS, which is on the first beach street in the subdivision. This extensively remodeled three story luxury vacation home is located approximately 125 yards from the beach (2-3 minute walk) and is only four houses away from the neighborhood pool within the EMERALD SHORES subdivision, a gated beach ownership community! EMERALD SHORES is the only residential community in Destin that has a private beach pavilion with restrooms, outdoor showers, beach service and it's very own Cabana Cafe' & Bar! This eliminates having to go back to the home for potty breaks, or to rinse off the kids or to just get a bite to eat with a cold beverage. It's all available at the Emerald Shores beach pavilion!
The home has a spacious 2700 square feet of living area complete with a 51" LCD, a large side yard, and features high-end travertine stone and exotic granite both inside and out. Home is fully equipped with all kitchen wares and utensils for casual or gourmet dining, including two full-size refrigerators and even has a granite wet bar and mini-fridge on the 3rd floor! Your family will appreciate PALMETTO PALMS' large porches, balconies, patios, decks, barbecue grill and close proximity to the beach and pool. Covered balconies and porches are located off all bedrooms and living areas. Partial gulf views are available from the balconies!

The home boasts two mega-sized King Master Suites with large sitting areas to spread out (1st & 3rd floors). Both have queen futon sleepers, perfect for extra tv watching space for the kids or to just have some extra privacy. Two additional bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor, which share a bathroom. This is a great set-up for multiple families with the Master bedrooms providing extra living and sleeping areas for big groups. The 3rd Floor wet bar with fridge is perfect for morning coffee. Each bedroom has a private covered balcony or porch area and opens up to soak in our wonderful Gulf breezes. Sit out on one of the balconies or porches and read a good book or just kick back and relax while sipping on a frothy cold libation.
Your family will have ample room to lounge around in a tropical paradise. The home is located on the first beach street cul-de-sac in the neighborhood and is a very short walk to the beach, to the large heated community pool, to onsite tennis or beach restaurants.PALMETTO PALMS has free wireless high-speed internet access (wireless 802.11n, g or b). Why settle for an entire week of that cramped condo feeling when you could be stretching out and enjoying all of the pleasures and domestic comforts of being in your own home while vacationing at the beach! An array of amenities is at your doorstep. Several Gulf-Front Seafood Restaurants are even within walking distance of the home.

We love Palmetto Palms!    Sep 14, 2019

We always love our trip to Destin and staying at Pametto Palms..We have rented this home from Jay and Betty for many years. The website makes it so easy to reserve the home and has indepth information that answers any questions you might have regarding the area, home, etc. Emerald Shores is a gated community and very close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. The complex pools are also really nice with plenty of chairs and tables.. Palmetto Palms is very clean, comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need to prepare meals for your family, We always enjoy our stay. and this year was no exception. I wish we could have stayed longer but alas, the real world came calling. :) Highly recommend any of Jay and Betty's homes, you WILL enjoy your home away from home..

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Thank you Marie for staying with us once again in Palmetto Palms! We look forward to seeing you and your crew in Destin next year! Regards, Jay & Betty


Love the home!    Aug 24, 2019

We have stayed at several of Jay and Betty's homes and Palmetto Palms is our favorite! Jay and Betty are very accomodating and excellent with communication. They go above and beyond to make sure you're happy and your stay in enjoyable. All their homes are beautiful and have great proximity to the beach. The homes have everything you could need and more. We will definitely be back!

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Love all the repeat stays from your family and want to thank you for the good words on our small group of properties in Emerald Shores and Leeward Keys. We look forward to your stay with us next year and are planning a few upgrades for your favorite property! Happy Vacationing, Jay & Betty


Another great stay.    Nov 18, 2018

We had another great family week at Destin for Thanksgiving 2018. With the rental of about 7 houses, we had 64 family members total. We love staying at Emerald Shores because it is a gated community without thru traffic and the houses fill each families needs. Many thanks to Jay and Betty for their hospitality and Jay's quick response should we need anything. We have stayed in this house, Palmetto Palms, so many times, it feels like our home away from home. We have already booked for 2019 and look forward to our 30th year celebrating family and Thanksgiving at Emerald Shores, Destin.

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

We appreciate your repeat business at all of our properties in Emerald Shores. Thank you for the great words and we look forward to your stay next year. Thank You, Jay & Betty

Incredible Home    Jun 16, 2018

Our family of 11 loved this beautiful home. Everything we needed was included. We rented 2 golf carts which took us to the beach, the pool, the Harbor and every restaurant we ate at. The outside shower was the bomb for the kids. So easy to bathe them there. Thanks to Jay for helping us out with all questions we had.

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Wonderful! We are so pleased you had a great time and welcome you back to our properties located in Emerald Shores. Thanks Again, Jay & Betty

Impressive    Jul 29, 2017

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Thank you for choosing the Palmetto Palms and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to your return next year. Follow us on Facebook at

Perfect Palmetto Palms Vacation    Jun 03, 2017

We just returned from a perfect vacation in Palmetto Palms! There were many of us- babies, young children, adults. Plenty of space for different families to get away from one another if needed and plenty of gathering space for everyone. The house is beautifully decorated. Beds were very comfortable. The kitchen holds everything you need from plates to pots and pans, coffee makers, cooking utensils. The whole process of renting the house is very simple and Jay and Betty got back to me very quickly with any questions I had. We would definitely return to this house. Wish we were there now!

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Fantastic! That's what beach vacations are all about....getting together to have fun. Glad we were able to assist with your comforts. Remember, we have other properties should your friends need to join on the Emerald Coast. More the merrier. Follow us at Thanks, Jay & Betty

Fabulous Place    Mar 25, 2017

Jay and Betty were very accommodating! I appreciated the very prompt responses to my emails and questions and appreciated the thorough responses even more! They even made sure I had a keurig to make my stay complete! Fabulous property with the perfect location! We were talking about returning before we left! Highly recommended!!!

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Loved the review and yes, the weather was simply incredible. Thanks for your review and we certainly will welcome you back to Destin and will dial in another fun week at the beach for you and your family. Follow us at Thanks, Jay & Betty


Repeat Performance at Palmetto Palms    Jul 30, 2016

This was our second time to vacation with our son & daughter & their children at this residence, and we all had a wonderful time. We can't imagine coming to Destin & not staying at this residence. We were thrilled when Jay called to say we had access to the house earlier than expected. Although the house is equipped with everything imaginable, I could have used an apron for cooking. Loved our stay & hope to be back soon!!

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Love to have our repeat guests back! Make sure to Follow Us at for all things Destin! Thanks, Jay & Betty

Eileen    Jun 30, 2016

My family had a wonderful time staying at this property July 2016. Plenty of room, nice location. Jay was very accommodating and allowed us to check in early. We have stayed at their other properties and have always been happy with the accommodations.

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Although check-in time is 4pm CST, we do our very best to get families into our properties as soon as possible. It's a organized chaos with Saturday check-in's, but I'm glad we were able to get y'all in a little early so you could get a jump on your beach fun. Hope to see y'all back again soon! Remember to follow us at


Great Family Vacation home    May 31, 2016

We had a family of 9 people and the house certainly accommodated us all very nicely. Decor was warming and with granite counters and appliances. Perfect location for a short walk to the beach and restaurants. There were beach toys available for the kids. Jay was nice enough to help fix the cable on 2nd floor . Overall we had a great time and will be back with more family and friends.
