Emerald Dunes is a low-rise, beachfront condominium complex located in Crystal Beach. With a private gated entrance and direct beach access, this is the ideal getaway for families or couples. Amenities include gated beach access, a seasonally heated community pool, hot tub, and a grilling area. Emerald Dunes is conveniently located nearby to Henderson State Park, less than a mile from Destin Commons, and within walking distance to some of the best restaurants in Destin like Camille’s at Crystal Beach! There is truly something for everyone at Emerald Dunes!

Area Attractions:

Close by is Destin Commons, a beautifully landscaped, pedestrian-friendly area and a great family venue where children will love to play in the interactive water fountains. Also for the younger guests, a nautically/pirate themed outdoor playground features a 1,750 square foot soft play area with various creatures from the sea, slides, and a treasure chest!  Destin Commons also has a mini-train for the kids. Destin Commons features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Godiva Chocolates, AMC Movie Theaters and Bass Pro Shop. 

Nearby are 6 miles of paved trails - perfect for both walking or biking. Pretty, unspoiled, Henderson Beach State Park is also close by.  

If you are near Miramar Beach, the snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Dolphin Reef, deployed in 2017. Located just 685 feet straight out from the Miramar Regional Public Beach access (by Pompano Joe's), it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Dolphin Reef is at a depth of 12-20 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

December destination wedding stay - We had a wonderful stay in this condominium. Although the wedding was at The Henderson, the walk there was reasonable. Several of my siblings traveled down and the bed configuration worked well for our family. We love Crystal Beach and will definitely keep this property in mind for future rentals.

- Excellent all around! Two stories is a great perk! Beautiful beach and property!

Nov 13, 2022

Luxury getaway - We enjoyed the location in Destin, the distance to the beach, the size of the complex and condo, and we would certainly book again.

Nov 05, 2022

- The unit was perfect for our 3-generation family vacation. The location was fantastic--right on the beach. The Realjoy team was very responsive to questions and concerns. We would gladly stay here again in the future.

Oct 08, 2022

- Best stocked kitchen ever! Perfect kitchen appliances. Balcony views perfect sunsets. Emerald Dunes is small enough to keep beach from being overcrowded.

Annual Family Vacation - We had 3 generations on this vacation and we all loved the condo and beach location. Everything was perfect, except the size of the balcony. We all weren’t able to sit out in the evening and listen to the waves.

Lovely beach vacation spot. - Very Nice Rental. Spacious bedrooms, Fully stocked kitchen. We were three families and enjoyed our vacation. Wish we would have had access to the bathrooms by the pool for convenience. We didn’t receive codes. I called and spoke to real joy customer service but never got a return call. Overall great experience.

This condo was excellent. It was everything that was advertised. The only problem that we came acro. - We truly enjoyed our vacation and the location of this condo. It was everything that was advertised. The only problem that we experienced was that the ice maker was not working.

- Wonderful beach rental

Apr 06, 2022

Great stay - The 505 is a very clean condo with a great view. A bathroom for each bedroom was perfect, the washer and dryer are so nice that we ended up purchasing the same one for our house! The pool was under maintenance so it was closed for our whole stay, though that wasn't a problem for us, but I could see where that would be an issue for others. After multiple calls and attempts we never did get the free umbrella and two beach chairs. Real Joy was a pleasure to work with, but it seems like there were communication issues between the owner and the beach rental place. Overall I would stay at the 505 again, it is a very nice, clean and spacious condo.

Mar 05, 2022

- This was the best place we have ever stayed. I would 100% recommend this condo. It was so clean! The location was absolutely perfect! The views from inside were incredible! I have nothing negative to say. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. We will be back!

Fun near the beach - It was great stay as we stayed right on the beach. Property was neat and clean. It had an excellent view of the beach. All the accommodation at these property was sufficient for week long stay.

Family Beach Trip - We loved the location and proximity to restaurants and grocery store. The access to the beach was great, easy enough for older members of our group to enjoy the gorgeous beach. The unit was clean and well stocked. It seemed to be well insulated, we did not hear neighbors or anyone moving around. Having 4 bedrooms and 4 baths was perfect for our group. We were disappointed that the pool was not on the beach side of the building, as we thought based on the pictures. We had a problem with the pantry shelves falling, but we worked around that. Suggestion for Emerald Dunes property owner, the pathway lighting from the parking area could be improved. It was difficult to see at night.

Perfect location and views - The entire process was so easy, from booking to check in to checking out. The condo was perfect in every way.

Sep 12, 2021

Vacation - Very good

Aug 11, 2021

Will Return! - Although their were a few hiccups with the checkin process and the cable wasn’t working for part of our stay, the condo itself and beach were perfect! Our family loved it and will definitely return to this condo again. The property manager was easy to get in touch with and always responsive!

Jul 14, 2021

Wonderful - We always have a wonderful vacation in Destin! At Emerald Dunes we enjoyed this 2 story unit. The bedroom set up and locations worked well for our extended family. We also enjoy the private beach and access.

Emerald Dunes 505 - Amazing property located at the beach. Beach service available on private beach. Rooms are big and very comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies, but you will have to buy everyday supplies such as toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags etc. Overall I would recommend.

Apr 27, 2021

Amazing - We had a great time. The kitchen was very well stocked. Beautiful view of the ocean. Ample room for 8 of us. It could use a rug at the end of stairs. The last step blended into the floor. Thanks for a great time.

- Very stylish and has amazing views!!!
