EMERALD SHORES is the only residential community in Destin that has a private beach pavilion with restrooms, outdoor showers, beach service and it's very own Cabana Cafe' & Bar! This eliminates having to go back to the home for potty breaks, or to rinse off the kids or to just get a bite to eat with a cold beverage. It's all available at the Emerald Shores beach pavilion!.
The home has a spacious 2700 square feet of living area complete with a 70" TV, a large side yard, and features high-end travertine stone and exotic granite both inside and out.

The home boasts two mega-sized King Master Suites with large sitting areas to spread out (1st & 3rd floors).

This is a great set-up for multiple families with the Master bedrooms providing extra living and sleeping areas for big groups. The 3rd Floor wet bar with fridge is perfect for morning coffee. Each bedroom has a private covered balcony or porch area and opens up to soak in our wonderful Gulf breezes. Sit out on one of the balconies or porches and read a good book or just kick back and relax while sipping on a frothy cold libation.
Your family will have ample room to lounge around in a tropical paradise.

PALMETTO PALMS has free wireless high-speed internet access (wireless dual-band). Why settle for an entire week of that cramped condo feeling when you could be stretching out and enjoying all of the pleasures and domestic comforts of being in your own home while vacationing at the beach!

About the owner: Our very first road trip to Destin was in 1987. We immediately fell in love with the sugar white beaches and pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It was our little secret love nest that consisted mostly of walking on the beach and regular trips to the fish market. Well, Destin is no longer our little secret and we are very passionate about sharing all that it has to offer.
We have traveled extensively and "rented" property for our own family vacations. So we fully understand and appreciate the importance of finding a great location, having easy access to amenities, and a quality property that is clean and well maintained. In 2001 we took the plunge and purchased our first property in Destin and started living "The Dream". Eventually we moved to Destin full-time.
When we are asked why we manage the homes ourselves, it's a pretty easy answer; Who cares more about a property than the actual owners? Our properties are not "out of sight, out of mind" investments with an out of state owner that is managed by some large cookie cutter property management company. That is far from our approach. We live close to the rental properties and provide a hands-on approach with our guests and the properties. We even conduct our own weekly inspections! We also differ from the "herd" by regularly updating and upgrading our properties to keep the homes up-to-date and current. Since Betty has her Florida Real Estate license, it keeps us abreast of the most current trends in the housing and vacation rental markets. Our central company website is are located less than a 1/2 mile from all the properites.
Whether you are looking to rent a high-quality vacation property or looking to purchase something for your family, we have the experience to help. Please call or email us, we would love to hear from you.

Why this property? Located on the 1st beach street in Emerald Shores, the proximity to the beach and our private pavilion cannot be beat. The finishes in this home are exceptional and it really shows from the moment you enter the home. This is not your average run of the mill beach home, it's a complete step above the competition and is at the top of the inventory within Emerald Shores. This property exudes luxury both inside and out.
Guestbook comments from the host:
My family looks so forward to our stay at Palmetto Palms. It fits our family well and everyone feels "at home" in this house. We had a little one this year so it was nice that the house provides a PackNPlay. It gave us an extra naptime place downstairs. We also love that this house has a yard area. Thanks to Jay, Betty, and Josh for ensuring that everything is always taken care of. See you in 2021.
We have stayed at several of Jay and Betty's homes and Palmetto Palms is our favorite! Jay and Betty are very accomodating and excellent with communication. They go above and beyond to make sure you're happy and your stay in enjoyable. All their homes are beautiful and have great proximity to the beach. The homes have everything you could need and more. We will definitely be back!
We had another great family week at Destin for Thanksgiving 2018. With the rental of about 7 houses, we had 64 family members total. We love staying at Emerald Shores because it is a gated community without thru traffic and the houses fill each families needs. Many thanks to Jay and Betty for their hospitality and Jay's quick response should we need anything. We have stayed in this house, Palmetto Palms, so many times, it feels like our home away from home. We have already booked for 2019 and look forward to our 30th year celebrating family and Thanksgiving at Emerald Shores, Destin.
This home is so beautiful and we loved our stay. The management is very available and responsive for anything that should arise. We plan to return a soon as possible.

Perfect for family!
We loved being so close to the beach and took daily walks along the ocean and we enjoyed having our own locked gateway with bathrooms to the beach. The Emerald Shores community is gated and super friendly, and we felt very comfortable and safe during our stay of two months. The house was perfect for our family and friends who came to visit and provided enough room for everyone to have their own space. The decor was nicely done and the mattresses very comfortable. It was also great to have our dog with us as she's family! We would definitely stay again.
