Here’s what our satisfied customers are saying…
We had an amazing stay at The Hidden Gem. The house was spotless when we arrived, tastefully decorated and the kitchen was well-stocked. Maria was a pleasure to work with. Emerald Shores is in a great location with easy access to restaurants, shopping and activities. The beautiful beach is within walking distance and the two community pools are sparkling clean. The Hidden Gem was our home away from home for four weeks and we highly recommend! Thank you Maria for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Expectations will be blown out of the water with the beauty of this house! Great beach and pool access and such a wonderful place to stay in! Recommend to everyone
Such a great place for family trips. The neighborhood was lovely and close to everything, beach was walkable, and small touches made it very nice. Maria was helpful with any questions I had beforehand. My family had a great time just relaxing in the space as well visiting locally. Will definitely book again if I’m in the area!
The house has everything we needed and then some! The floats, sand toys, and wagon were very helpful. Using the code entries were easy. The house is clean and furnishings were not only cute but also comfortable!
Stay here…. this place is great! Maria is a fantastic host and will take care of all your needs. The walk to the beach is all paved and easy for carts, buggies, little kids, or grandparents. Close to all shopping and food, but not downtown Destin traffic. I would stay with Maria again. -Sam
This rental was spot on! Great location, clean, everything as described. Maria the host was fabulous and very informative of the location. The unit had lots of extras usually needed like wagon, coolers, beach items, etc. I would definitely recommend and would most certainly stay here again!
Our family enjoyed our stay so much that we are thinking of selling our home for n Missouri to move to Destin! The home was so relaxing and comfortable I almost didn’t want to leave to go to the equally beautiful beach ! There was enough room for our family to spread out but still be close enough for family time. The community was friendly and all the places we visited were friendly and inviting. Pompano Joes and LuLu’s are must stops . I have flagged this home and we will be back next year, maybe sooner for a quick get away!!!! Love love love! You will not be disappointed!!!!
This place was amazing ! Close by to the beach, and a quick drive to restaurants. The whole neighborhood is very calm and very friendly . Maria responded to our questions very fast . Overall a great experience will definitely book this place again .
It was everything described and then some! Great location! its a bit of a walk to the beach but the shuttles to and from was great. She has everything in the home that you will need as far as amenities, there was a lot we took that we really didn’t need to. She also has a lot of stuff for the beach as well. some nice updates thats not shown in the online pics. spacious and enough room for the 8 adults and 1 child we had. big pool was right across the street from the house which was great and the dollar general is located right beside the community and was a life saver so we did not have to go out in the traffic. Maria was quick to respond when i had a question. check in was easy. i highly recommend this property and will be visiting it again! we loved it!! Thanks again Maria!!
We loved our stay! The house and it’s location was as advertised. WiFi speed excellent-2 family units used it with no problems. TVs in each bedroom so the kids were easily occupied when NOT on the beach. The beach pavilion/bar area and wash out area was PERFECT. Kids loved the beach toys and boogie boards provided. Parents liked the wagon. That was a COOL extra!! Outdoor seating was plentiful and clean. Indoor seating was comfy and plenty for all 9 of us. Appliances were new and worked great! Crockpot, coffee pot and blender were clean and worked. Ice maker in the freezer kept up with our demands. Fridge was large enough for 5 kids’ worth of snacks and drinks. Plus dinner left overs. One tip: the Dollar General is located next door to the entrance of the community. This place is WELL stocked. Go there! Get stuff! Save yourself the agony of a Walmart run. It was crowed at 7:30am and never let up.
