My family had a blast staying at this condo. It’s right on the beach and the resort has 2 pools. My girls loved the pool next to the parking garage with all the water features even more than the beach side pool. We would definitely stay here again!

Nice condo with great ocean views and great location. Elevators were really fast. This particular unit could use some updating though. Mattresses in both bedrooms were uncomfortable. New mattresses, new living room furniture and new flooring would make this condo a definite 5 star stay. Unfortunately the beach side pool and hot tub was closed the whole length of our stay for resurfacing. Overall I would recommend Emerald Beach to friends.
Christine H. Feb 2022
This resort was clean, gorgeous and has everything you could want included! We loved the heated pool and hot tub (it was out of order our first couple days, but was fixed.) We enjoyed having Starbucks and the souvenir shop and bar all in the resort! We will be back!

Great trip.. great location.. loved the SkyBar!!
Paige H. Oct 2021
Previous reviews complained about bed in master bedroom being low in the middle. It appears the middle legs on the frame just need to be set in place and problem solved. It still was not a bad bed.

The washing machine though. It has serious issues. Sounds like a few tin cans in the load when on spin. Definitely can't wash while napping or watching TV. SO LOUD.

Everything else was great. Might could use a few more dishes/utensils. Had to wash a lot. Elevators are busy and ran a little slow, but not too bad.

Would definitely rent this condo again.
Manager response:
Thank you for letting us know about your stay, Paige. We have dropped off more utensils and dishes and have maintenance scheduled to check the washing machine. We do hope you will consider staying with us in the future!

For the price, we’ve definitely stayed in better. The furniture is old and worn and beds are AWFUL!! The king in the master bedroom sags in the middle so bad that you roll to the center when you lay on it. The queen in the other bedroom is almost as bad. We ended up leaving a day earlier than expected and checked into a hotel just to get a decent nights sleep. We just couldn’t spend one more night in that bed and getting up with our backs killing us. We are not over weight and we are all in our mid 40’s. The view however was great and the location was great. It’s just a shame that we paid what we did for worn out furniture and the worst beds ever.
Manager response:
Hi, Stacie! Your feedback is greatly appreciated thank you for submitting it. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the uncomfortable beds during your stay. We will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope for another opportunity to host you again soon, for a much more enjoyable stay!

On the ceiling it looked like mold or something growing on it. Half of the ceiling was painted so it didn’t show. The other half looked like mold but not sure what it was. Besides that the room was nice and spacious.
Manager response:
Hi, Steven! The ceiling was inspected, and no mold was found. Thank you!

Lots of space, ocean view is spectacular. Kids love the outdoor pools and game room. Elevators take a while.
Kimberley K. Jun 2021
We got there to check in and room wasn’t clean had to wait 1 hour and 15 mins then when we went in still dirty and didn’t have all our bands or parking passes. Had to call 3 times. Beds are very wore out the washer didn’t work right. It was a pretty view other than all that

Clean, spacious rooms.
But needs washer serviced.

Found the property to ne clean and comfortable

We stayed a week in the condo and it was great. The furniture was a little dated, but overall the condo is very nice. The master bedroom was plenty large and the main living area was comfortable. Definitely would stay again.
Sarah J. Jul 2020
It would be hard to beat the location and view. We were able to walk everywhere and the convenience of the parking garage was very nice.
I would leave 5 stars but this condo is in need of a few updates. There is a sign to not leave the washer unattended because it might overflow, the shower curtain hooks are all rusted over, and there were only three forks in the kitchen (made it difficult for a family of six to eat together at the table).
Manager response:
Hi, Sarah! We are so glad you stayed with us, and we are delighted to hear you enjoyed the view and location. The laundry set is being replaced, and we are providing shower hooks and more silverware as well. Thank you!

The condo was very spacious and comfortable. We did have some issues with the water getting turned off because of a leak under the kitchen sink. Would stay in this unit again.
Kimberly B. May 2020
The location and view were great. The unit needed maintenance.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kimberly. We apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We have forwarded your comments to the local manager to ensure the home is repaired as needed for future guests.
Melissa Z. May 2020
Pros: It's the 21st floor and the views are absolutely incredible. The two bedrooms are far apart and give privacy. The guest bath has a tub - good for kids. The kitchen is roomy and the beach gear closet is a great feature. Kitchen had the appliances and cookware we needed to have all our meals there. Just across the street is a good steamed seafood place, a convenience store, and a pizza place. The parking garage pools were clean and not too busy. Elevators are fast. We appreciated the sky bridge so we didn't have to walk across 30A.

Cons: The walls all need repainted. There were some cleanliness issues and the refrigerator took 36 hours to get to a cold temperature (safe for dairy/meat). The kitchen faucet leaked and caused a water shutoff. The twin beds are directly next to the front door (loud street noise) and there is no second lock on the door for safety (I really wished this was there since we have a four year old - there needs to be one that little kids can't reach). Remotes needed new batteries. Furnishings were outdated but we had what we needed.

Vacasa: We were given completely wrong information to access the unit. We never got wristbands from Vacasa. We never got parking passes from Vacasa. When we called Vacasa, we got put on hold for an HOUR AND A HALF --- just to access the condo and get the parking garage code. We were promised wristbands, parking passes, and maintenance, none of which we received. I would never rent from them again.
Manager response:
Hi, Melissa! Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We do not encourage deadbolts in conjunction with the kaba locks in case of emergency. The faucet has been addressed, and we have suggested painting to the homeowner. We hope to see you again!
Deborah J. Mar 2020
I loved having the master bedroom facing the beach with a beautiful bay window and a sitting area in front of it.
Jennifer T. Jul 2019
The Tiki Bar at the pool was never open.
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.
