Guestbook comments from the owner:
We recently spent a week in Emerald Shores, staying at Gemstone. Very comfortable home with everything you need. Close to the beach. Really nice and comfortable community for much needed rest and relaxation. Can't wait to go back.
This is a lovely home. It was well-equipped and beautifully decorated. Everything was spotless. It's a short distance to a private beach, in a gated community. We definitely recommend it, and hope to return in the future.
My family has stayed at the Destin Gemstone several times over the last ten years and have only good things to say about it. It is located within 50 feet of the community pool and within a five minute walk to the beach. It has always been well- maintained, and we have always found it comfortable and clean. Last time we visited, there was new carpet. The owner has always been very responsive and helpful. We will continue to call this place our home away from home!

Fantastic Vacation Home
Our family of 5 recently stayed in this clean, well-furnished home in the quiet, well-kept Emerald Shores neighborhood. The home is located a short five minute walk from the beach. Load up the owners beach wagon with boogie boards, beach chairs and an umbrella and your on your way to a beautiful beach vacation on amazing white sand. The home itself is well-maintained, has plenty of seating for watching tv, reading or browsing the internet on the included wi-fi. The home provides plenty of dishes and pantry space to make meals at home if you choose. It is also near several restaurants if you choose to eat out. There is a golf cart that seats about 8 that shuttles neighborhood guests from their home to about 50 yards from the beach. The shuttle operates every day from 9-4:30. The only complaint that we had was the need to purchase beach towels once we arrived in town or the need to bring them from home as they are not provided. It’s a relatively small complaint considering all the great things about the house, the neighborhood and our overall vacation experience. We would highly recommend this house to others and will definitely vacation here in the future. This was our favorite vacation to date.
