Area Information
The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!' Destin is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports.

Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes two to three times a year event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you'll want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Great complex

Stayed 6 days ending in June, 2015
a guest from Simpsonville, SC recommends this vacation rental
This is one of the more unique properties we've stayed in. Overall we were very happy and would definitely return. Here is my assessment:
Its location next to the pool is ideal.
The complex itself is very nice; doesn't feel crowded.
Really enjoyed having the cabana area down by the beach.
The in-law suite attached to the house worked out well for our guest who brought their dog. Overall I think this area is one of the best parts of the whole house.
The house is well furnished and has lots of kitchen stuff.
Cons -
Its a bit a walk to the beach, but really not too bad. There's a wagon you can load up to drag your things down there.
Getting the arm bands for beach access. Lost my $20 deposit because security leaves at 4pm and doesn't arrive until 10am. So on check-out day when you have to be out by 9, you're out of luck. You have to remember the day before you leave to ask for the deposit back.
The upstairs bedrooms are connected, so keep in mind that there aren't separate doors.
Manager Responded on 7/9/2015

Glad that you were happy with Admirals Club. It is a very nice property with nice upgrades and unique features as you describe. The distance to the beach is truly 1/4 mile, about a 5 minute walk, the equivalent of 1 time around a high school track! The wagon is very convenient to take beach toys and chairs to the beach. There is also a free tram service during the Peak Summer for people who don't want to walk. The wrist bands for amenities are new this year. This program was put in place to keep people who are not staying in Emerald Shores out of the neighborhood and off our private cabana. It has worked well. The timing of the cabana attendant is mentioned to everyone before and at check in. For now, they do have to be turned in by 4pm the day before you leave. That may change next year but it is a function of the Homeowner's Association and well beyond our control.

Admiral's Club at Emerald Shores

Stayed 7 days ending in July, 2015

Fred N from Acworth, GA recommends this vacation rental
The place was nice and spacious. The separate in-law house was a plus because we had our parents with us and it was great when they needed a break from all the craziness with young kids. The master closet was a bit cluttered (it held extra decorations and furniture) so it was hard to get full use. Would have liked more updated linens. They looked worn an not as clean as desired. Being right in front of the pool was very convenient!
Manager Responded on 7/24/2015

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Admirals Club. It is one of the nicest in the neighborhood and well kept. Will definitely check the linens. There isn't a whole lot of room in these vacation homes so the big master closet is one of the best places for owner storage.

Great family week in Destin

Stayed 7 days ending in August, 2015

Brent C from Willow Springs, MO recommends this vacation rental
Our entire family of eleven spent a great week in the Admirals Club. Everything was fantastic including the cleanliness, close proximity to the beach and furnishings. The only complaint was that the beds were not very comfortable. (Very soft)
Manager Responded on 8/24/2015

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Admirals Club! It is a special home with lots of upgrades and right at the bigger of 2 community pools. The beds all have 3 to 4 inch memory foam mattresses with a firm mattress. That is a personal preference of the owners. The memory foam provides a bit of softness but the firmness is also felt!

Home away from Home

Stayed 7 days ending in September, 2015

Darcy C from Lawton, OK recommends this vacation rental
The Admirals Club home is located in a gated neighborhood. It's very cozy, family friendly and a five minute stroll to the beach. One of two neighborhood pools is just out the front door. The home is furnished to fit a large family gathering and has all the amenities you would need to cook up a storm! We'll be back!
Manager Responded on 9/17/2015

So happy you enjoyed your stat at Admirals Club in Emerald Shores! It is a special home in a gated neighborhood with the best amenities along our stretch of beach. Great location right at the bigger of 2 pools and nicely furnished!

Great experience!

Stayed 7 days ending in March, 2016

a guest from Huntsville, Alabama recommends this vacation rental
Our stay with Crystal Waters was incredible. The homes were beautiful in a cute neighborhood! The amenities were great and the private beach access was the best part! Would absolutely recommend the place to anyone. The customer service was great and whenever we had a question or concern, we could just call and get immediate help which was great. Definitely recommend going to Camille's for dinner, the food and service were phenomenal.
Manager Responded on 3/23/2016

So happy you all enjoyed your stays at Admirals Club, Caribe, St. Croix, and Blue Mist! All of these homes are special with the best amenities and close to all activities in Destin!

We loved our stay here!

Stayed 4 days ending in May, 2016

Erica P from Monroe, Georgia (GA) recommends this vacation rental
I traveled with a few couples for a relaxing beach vacation, and that's exactly what we got with this rental! The property was exactly what we expected it to be and more! It was extremely clean and well-maintained, the staff was very polite and helpful, and the location in the neighborhood was perfect. Being right next to the pool was awesome and it was a short walk to the beach with a very nice private access. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family and I would love to stay there again!
Manager Responded on 5/18/2016

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Admirals Club! It is a special property with one of the best locations in the neighborhood by the bigger pool! We do our best to keep it updated, clean, and comfortable for everyone!

Great time for our whole family

Stayed 6 days ending in June, 2016

a guest from Jasper, IN recommends this vacation rental
We had a great vacation in Destin in this rental. Loved being so close to the pool -where we spent a lot of time with our little swimmers! Walk to the beach was pretty quick and having the wagon made it so much easier.
Manager Responded on 7/4/2016

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Admirals Club! It is a special home with lots of upgrades and nicer amenities. The bigger of 2 pools is right in front too and the beach is a very easy walk!

Beautiful House...

Stayed 7 days ending in July, 2016

Paula O from Sumrall, MS recommends this vacation rental
The house was beautiful and perfect for my family.. However... Whoever designed the kitchen and put the sink in the corner did not know what they were doing.. Water kept getting everywhere because there was a big gap between the two sinks.... Other than that it really was the perfect house
Manager Responded on 7/5/2016

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Admirals Club! It is a super nice home in a gated community with the best amenities! Not sure what the problem was with the sink. If you turn the water off before switching sinks, there shouldn't be a problem. Sorry that the design caused any inconvenience.
