This unit was rented to us with a 18" hole in the ceiling, that was leaking and insulation falling out of it. They were aware of the issue and that it was not fixed and STILL RENTED UNIT. If you rent form Emerald Towers, be prepared to rent an umbrella, as personal umbrellas are not allowed. This would have been nice to know beforehand. This will be our last rental at Emerald Towers and Vacasa.

Loved the location of Emerald Towers. The condo layout was very nice and clean..although needs updating..i.e. cushions on porch very worn. Could not use second bathroom because of a leak from floor above.

Nice place. Clean and had a great view.

Emerald Towers was a very nice facility, clean, and nice amenities. The unit we stayed in (505) could use some updating and minor repairs such as doors needing adjustment, wall plates on electrical outlets, and adjusting bi-fold doors so they operate properly. Kitchen although tight on space was functional. However, the owner should change the swing on the refrigerator & freezer doors. Refrigerator is setup to do this and it wouldn't take but a few minutes. With the kitchen as tight as it is, this would be a big improvement to have those doors swing away instead of into you. Would make it much better and easier to get in& out while trying to cook. Gated parking lot was nice. Yes, We would stay here again.

Let's start off with the roaches that would come out. A huge one was on our bedroom wall. A few of the wall plugs would not work either. The bathroom had the wall paper torn. A guy came to take out the comfy sofa chair to leave me a hard one. Not even sure why? The place definitely needs an upgrade. You are basically renting a cheap motel room with beach view but with double the cost. The view was pretty but not worth paying double to have roaches crawl around.

In over 20 years of coming to this property I have never been so disappointed in the condition of the units. I understand why we had to be moved to other units due to a serious/dangerous maintenance issue with our original booked unit however the units we were moved to were in awful condition. 704 had a broken washing machine. Wet dirty towels were left behind and the unit reaked of mildew. Books in entertainment center were wet and mildewed also. The unit was filthy. The toaster and coffee machine don’t work. There are no oven mits to be found in the unit. The master bedroom closet is so rusted the doors don’t close. The kick board under the master bath sink was just off and laying on the floor. The televisions did not work which was a big issue when trying to stay up to date on a tropical storm.

Unit 505 was also filthy and over run with roaches... not the “water bugs” you might expect on the coast but gross small German roaches that are found only in filthy unkept conditions. We had to buy and treat the unit ourselves since pest control comes on certain dates and we were also dealing with a tropical storm.

Wall paper in master bath was ripped and peeling. The floors throughout were gross...white tiles blackened from not being cleaned. The patio had sawdust and refuse and the floor was nothing short of disgusting. It took clearing the furniture and sweeping and mopping 3 times to get the layers of filth to a tolerable.

If I were an owner depending on Vacasa to see to the proper maintenance and cleaning of my unit between renters I would be furious that my renters had this kind of experience in my home.

I would very much like to discuss our experience with someone and would appreciate a call from someone.
Manager response:
Hi, Beth! The pest issue on this property has been addressed, and both the toaster and coffee maker are currently functioning. We are pleased to say the home will be going through some renovation work this winter. We hope to see you again when the work is complete!

Great location to the beach, and easy to go back and forth for snacks or lunch. Good layout for 2 couples to enjoy. Maybe updates would be nice but not there to stay in the condo all day. Enjoyed!!!

I liked the Florida styling and the view is epic!

Had a great time! Destin is always great. Emerald Towers location is centered perfectly. Good neighborhood to take morning runs in, pool and beach access is the best!
