Great place for a family vacation!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 of 5

This home is a short, convenient walk to the beach and to two pools. This gated community has its own private-access beach pavilion with restrooms and outdoor showers which we really found extremely convenient. Everything you could ask for is available in the well equipped kitchen and the owner is very accommodating. He is easy to contact and very responsive. We especially enjoyed the private, side-patio area downstairs with grill and great seating to just sit, chat and relax. The "children" (grown) thoroughly enjoyed the upstairs outside deck connecting the two bedrooms on the second floor. The home was perfect for a family reunion for the 5 of us! Emerald Shores is also very convenient to everything with two gated exits which allow for quick access to the main road, Highway 98 and the beach highway, Old Highway 98. Also within walking distance to several of our favorite restaurants - Pompano Joe's, Kenny D's and Captain Dave's and not far from the Crab Shack and Whale's Tail. Several items the kids or grandkids would want to use at the beach such as boogie board, beach chairs, etc. are available as well. Our family reunions are usually larger, but for the size of our group this year, it was perfect! For these reasons we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it as a great 3 bedroom / 2&1/2 bath house to consider in Destin. Thanks to Joe for the great time we had last week in Tobago Sun!

What a great vacation home!!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 of 5

We loved our vacation home! About a 5 minute walk from the beach, comes with everything you need to have a great time at the beach (chairs, umbrella, beach toys for the kids, and a wagon to take it all in). The house was absolutely fantastic for the 12 of us, the house comes with all that you need to cook/grill, the laundry room was a major plus (we did 2 to 3 loads a day), the beds were comfortable and overall the house had a comfortable feel to it. There is so much to do in Destin, great restaurants everywhere, outlet mall down the road, you get private beach access w/bar, you can rent a kayak/paddle board there on the beach, we rented a scooter car for a week from Fantasea Scooters down the road (a great way to get around & a lot of fun!), and there is a lot to do at Harborwalk Village. We had a great family vacation and hope to return again soon! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Best Vacation ever!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 of 5

From start to finish Joe helped made out first time to Destin a memorable one.
From the ease of making our reservation to the beauty of his house, we didn't want to leave!
The house was clean, spacious, and beautiful. Short walk to the beautiful beach and pool. Close to many stores and restaurants.
Joe was more than helpful when it came to questions I had for our beach wedding!
The was our first time to the area and we can't wait to go back!!
Thanks again Joe for a beautiful place to stay!

Our family throughly enjoyed staying at the Tobago Sun. Everything exceeded our expectations. Great for kids and for wheelchairs too. Our grandkids first vacation will be one we'll talk about for a long time. We actually had really good weather!
