5/5 stars
We had a great stay at Emerald Dunes. We did have a plumbing issue, however iTrip was quick to respond and did a great job communicating with us on the progress. If for some reason they weren't able to remedy the issue, iTrip was prepared to offer us other lodging. I can't say enough good things about Jodi and Sara and their outstanding customer service! The location (ground floor) of the condo was so very convenient. The kitchen has everything you can possibly need. We will definitely be back. This was our 5th trip to Destin and second time staying at Emerald Dunes, however the first time in 101. It was a great vacation.

Our little gem!
5/5 stars
This was our 2nd stay here. We will definitely be back. It is the perfect size for our family. Love the accessibility on the ground floor to the beach, pool, and grassy area. My only wish was a better stocked kitchen, but that will not hold us back from returning again next year!

Beautiful Place
5/5 stars
Such a beautiful place! Literally walk across the lawn to the bridge for the beach. Sarah was easily contacted from us the point of us getting ready to depart, arriving early because our flights were not delayed at all {shocking}, and to the very last day wondering if we should leave unopened items for the cleaners. Very accommodating and clean! Felt right at home! Thank you! Hoping to rent this same rental again and the one next door to bring our families with us next time.

5/5 stars
We truly enjoyed our short vacation and this condo was exactly as advertised. It was pretty and very well located. Our only issue was the master bedroom sheets did not appear to have been cleaned well before our visit - there was sand and a long dark hair in it. Ick. Also, the dishwasher detergent pod container was empty so there was no soap for the dishwasher. The AC went out on Friday evening and we noticed it late after returning from dinner. I contacted the management and they called me IMMEDIATELY. They sent someone out and had the unit back working in about an hour. That was IMPRESSIVE! We will definitely be back if we can get the same unit. We had a great time!

Family Vacation
5/5 stars
This is the second time I stayed here. The place is wonderful. The washer and dryer are awesome. The bedrooms are spacious and the view is wonderful. The beach is private through the day so you can walk out come in for lunch and go back out. Easy communication with i trip.
Perfect getaway!
5/5 stars
This was our 6th trip to Crystal Beach, and we all agreed this was our favorite condo we’ve stayed in! You can’t beat the location or the ease of being on the first floor. It makes vacationing with young children so much easier. We also enjoyed the pool - mostly having it to ourselves or with one other family at a time. The beach was never crowded and the beach chair service is such a perk. The condo itself was very clean and functional for our family of four. We had everything we needed for our stay. Highly recommend trying Camille’s across the street! Can’t wait to come back!

The Place to Stay in Destin!
5/5 stars
Absolutely stunning first floor condo with direct private beach access and AMAZING VIEWS. When we arrived it was like walking into a 5star fancy hotel, it was spotless, defiantly well kept and new appliances. We had to call one time to the hosts and they answered right away and got us taken care of. It was 3 adults and 2 small children, absolutely perfect size condo for us. We couldn’t get enough of the views from the condo, it was priceless. It was just a short walk down to the beach and they had a complimentary umbrella and chairs reserved for us for the entire stay. It was a perfect set up for family with kids, especially ones that need naps and bathroom breaks, just a short walk back to the condo. Also was great for my 60 year old MIL that can’t travel long distances. Didn’t fight parking with it being a gated condominium and it was a short 5min drive to restaurants and attractions. We will defiantly book again! GREAT FOR FAMILIES! Momma approved

So fresh and so clean!
5/5 stars
We spent spring break in April 2022. This is one of the cleanest places we have stayed. As soon as you walk in the place smelled fresh and the spa music playing puts you instantly in a good mood and vacation mode. The view and corner spot offered easy access and privacy. The barefoot beachside service was great and the people were nice. Washer and dryer were new amd worked great. Loved having the air fryer. Used for everything from reheating leftovers and making dinner. Great water flow and tvs in every room. Definitely owing back here.

This was the third year my mother, sister and I have stayed in this unit, and we absolutely love it! The new washer and dryer are great as is the coffee pot/Keurig combo appliance in the kitchen. When we had an issue with the television (operator error), someone was sent to help us. Highly recommend Emerald Dunes #101!

We enjoyed our stay immensely! This was our second trip in this condo!We spent our Thanksgiving break in the condo and in March we took a last minute trip for my youngest daughter’s birthday and she loved it! We loved the new appliances and the property manager was so down to earth and friendly! We can’t wait to stay again!!

We stayed at Emerald Dunes 101, Destin, FL. We were more than happy with the experience and service we received with iTrip Vacations. We have been vacationing at the beach more than 10 years and this by far was the best experience! We will be booking every year with iTrip after the smooth process of staying with them.

5/5 stars
My wife and our kids stayed here for a week. This is our 5th or 6th time to Destin, and now ranks as the best rental we've had. - First of all, Holly and Sarah are BAR NONE the best in the business of service. I'd book with them again just to book with them. - This is the absolute ideal location in Destin (near the Commons, Interstate, Walmart, etc) - The beach was perfect and the chair rental service was not too packed. - Private beach meant all the neighbors might be packed on their beach, but ours was nice and spacious. ;) - The unit itself was great. Clean and spacious. - Large pantry - Parking lot is gated with access code for entry and exit. LOVED this. - Granite counters, newer appliances, clean floors and bathroom fixtures - Jetted tub in the master - Nice view of the beach from the dining table and living room. - Ground floor unit, we used the patio door all day every day getting on and off the beach right from our back door! The spray off station for the complex was also very nice! If you plan to pack an ice chest each day, you might want to buy some ice or bring lots of ice trays. I wish this unit had a bigger ice maker. It does however have a small built in ice maker in the freezer, just doesn't make a lot of ice for day-long beach sits. :)
- Jake
Absolutely gorgeous!!

The condo was great, had everything we needed, and was very comfortable!! Beach umbrella information was there for us, and the view is breathtaking!! The condo is close to restaurants and tons of things to do, but the beach access is perfect!!

Location, location, location!!
5/5 stars
The condo was nicely decorated, clean and supplied with everything you would need for cooking ......even a blender for making drinks. It had perfect views! The location has spoiled me for the next time. I loved walking out the back patio door, going 50 feet to the stairs and being on the beach. The chairs on the patio and even having a small grassy area added to the enjoyment of sitting outside. This would be a perfect location for bringing young children, teens or elderly. We will be returning!
- Sandy
Amazing stay!
5/5 stars
This condo is beautiful and clean! You can walk out the door and onto the beach! The small building also means that you are not packed into the beach multiple rows deep! I can’t wait to go back! Book this place! You won’t regret it!
- Angela
Great Condo!
5/5 stars
Emerald Dunes 101 is wonderful! Being the end unit on the first floor makes for very easy access. After notifying the management about a problem with water pressure in the master bath shower, someone was there to replace the shower head within just a couple of hours. The unit is very clean and well laid out. There were no potholders/oven mitts in the kitchen and only one kitchen towel, but that is an easy fix. This is our second time in this unit and am booking it again for next year!
- Marcia

Thank you for your 5 star review of Emerald Dunes 101. We love repeat guests!! I am sorry you had an issue but happy to hear the Itrip Vacations Destin staff was there to help right away. We love the lay out also and glad it was sparkling clean. We have replaced the oven mitts. Thank you for your feedback - we are listening.

I had a very good stay in Emerald dunes 101 and I want to complement I trip on their speedy reaction to the drapes falling off the wall and getting that fixed. Also through that whole time of planning my trip and staying there I dealt with Sarah and I have to commend her. Thank you for a very enjoyable six weeks hope to do it again

Pleasant stay at Emerald Dunes
5/5 stars
We recently stayed at Emerald Dunes, #101. It was our first time staying at this complex. We originally planned on having 6 people in the condo, but plans changed and there were only two of us. So, the unit was perfect for us, although it would've nicely accommodated 4 adults and children. The unit was well decorated and clean, and we especially loved being on ground level, in an end unit of a small, quiet complex. No stairs or elevators, and a very short stroll to the beach. Quiet and Peaceful. The patio is a bit small, but it was perfect for us and the view was amazing. The only suggestions I have- maybe a few more kitchen items... plastic storage containers and a few more kitchen gadgets would be nice. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks for sharing with us.
- Carolyn

Thank you for your 5 star review of Emerald Dunes 101. We love your feedback. So glad you found it clean and well decorated. The location is the best also we agree. We are doing off season inventory and will be added more kitchen items. Thank you for letting us know. Please come back and stay with us. We love repeat guests.

My husband and I have stayed in Emerald Dunes 101 three times. Love it more with each stay. Directly on the beach to see the waves roll in. Very quiet and serene setting. Very easy to book and Itrip Vacation Rentals was great to work with. TVs are large and great to watch a movie on a rainy day. Kitchen perfect size for vacation meal prep. We will be back.

Emerald Dunes 101- Amazing!!!
5/5 stars
We just arrived home from our stay in Destin at Emerald Dunes 101, I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The unit was beautiful, clean, comfortable with THE most amazing view. The view and location were incredible. To have a 1st floor walk out to the Gulf was so convenient and allowed us to truly enjoy our beach vacation. I have never stayed anywhere that felt like home (with a much better view) it was so cozy and comfortable. My family of 5 loved the space…my twin girls absolutely loved their bunk nook. All my kids enjoyed the closet of sand toys and boogie boards. The grounds were very well taken care of, lovely pool and hot tub which were never too busy. We loved the private beach with daily chair and umbrella set-up. Also everyone we encountered from the building management company, to grounds maintenance to beach attendants were SO friendly and helpful. We will be back and I would recommend this condo to anyone! We did not want to leave.
- Nayia

Nayia- we are so glad your family enjoyed the condo especially the bunk nook for the twins! A first floor condo with a view like this is a must see! The fully equipped condo with beach service is just an added bonus! We hope you can come back and enjoy the condo again in the near future! Maybe even for a longer vacation.

The place is very nice and clean, and most importantly, very close to the beach! You are literally just steps to the beach and its also a plus that the unit is on the ground floor. It wouldve been a perfect short get-away had the weather cooperated. It rained almost all day that were there. I also wish that they would alllow at least small dogs so we can bring our pets next time.

This vacation exceeded our expectations!! We absolutely loved the condo, it was perfect! It was well-decorated with high-end everything, safe, quiet, and the pool, hot tub, and beach were never crowded since they're exclusive to condo guests only. The location was perfect too - right on the beach, but also right in the middle of tons of shopping and restaurants, so we enjoyed the best of both worlds! We absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back!!

We stayed with our 2 kids and another family of 4 in early March. It was one of the best vacations we have had! The condo was decorated beautifully and was in excellent condition! The condo is upgraded with beautiful fixtures and we all had plenty of room! The best part was we only had to walk a few feet and bam... we were on the beach! I would recommend this condo again and again! We can't wait to go back!!
