We love Emerald Shores and this home was perfect !! The 1st impression did not disappoint. The home was clean and well supplied. The walk to the beach/pool was mere minutes. The owner was very easy to reach and immediate with her response to any questions..from booking to the end of our stay. She was a true delight to work with. We loved all of the amenities. We especially enjoyed that we were provided wristbands and a complimentary umbrella/2 chairs for our beach days. I can't say enough about this wonderful vacation home. We'll definitely be back..

The beach house was beautiful and clean! We really enjoyed our stay. Anytime I needed something or had a question, the owner was quick to respond, nice and very helpful. The greatest part of our trip was that the beach and pool were within walking distance, which the kids loved! I would definitely recommend this place and plan on coming back to Blessing by the Sea!

Thank you for choosing to stay in our home! Isn't it nice that we are located 100 yards from the beach and just steps to the pool? We look forward to having your family stay with us again.

Absolutely Wonderful    Jan 27, 2018

We have been coming each winter to Destin for the past 5 years and this home is by far the best place we have stayed. The first floor master bedroom was large comfortable and perfectly situated for my wife and I. We had other relative staying in Destin and several friends visit us during our stay. The living room had more than enough space to accommodate all of our visitors. The Kitchen is well stocked with just about everything you need including an ice machine which was great for our cocktail hours. The home is only a short walk to the beach and we walked several time to Captain Dave's and Kenny D's for dinner. We love the place so much that we have already booked if for 2019. We can't wait to return and enjoy this wonderful home. Thanks Jackie for all the help you gave us. See you next year.
