Perfect House

"My husband,myself, our two adult daughters and their families stayed for three nights. This home is beautiful and very well equipped. It is a ten minute walk to the beach but with the golf cart that is supplied, you can make it in a couple minutes. There is public beach parking at the beach for the golf carts. It was perfect. We had ages from 7-60 and we all felt at home. Pool area is within 2 minutes of unit. Very nice pool area. Beware of the bunk beds with tv's at the end of them. Your children will beg for some like that when you leave. There is construction of a few units going on but within a few months I would think it will be done. The construction did not pose an issue with our stay."

Emerald Dream

"We celebrated twenty years of friendship with another family in this incredible vacation home, and our stay was truly a DREAM! Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by owners, Chris and Jamie. Chris proceeded to give us a tour of the property and provided great detail of upcoming events in the area for the Fourth of July. He was more than accomodating throughout our stay and always responsive to each of our questions. We had more than enough room for ten people in this spacious home. The large kitchen table allowed us a place to share meals and lots of laughter. The children had a floor of their own that not only included two bunk rooms, an additional bedroom, and two bathrooms but also a game room with pool table and arcade game! We adults found ourselves on the top floor with plenty of privacy, a coffee bar, and balcony. From the top of the line appliances, to the tasteful furnishings, to the comfortable bedding, to the six-person golf cart, this brand new home is truly one of a kind! We didn't want to leave EMERALD DREAM and highly recommend you go see for yourself!"

Impeccable Property and Kind Owners

My sisters and I needed a relaxing retreat after losing our mom to cancer just a few months ago. The moment we stepped into the house, we knew we picked the perfect place. This property was hands down the best vacation house we've ever rented. The house was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Our families enjoyed every inch of the property and the breath taking beaches. The amenities of the property cover all of your desires and the location is perfect. The pictures actually don't do this house justice. The owner (Chris) was kind and helpful. I just hope vacationers take good care of the property during their visits so we can come back next year to the same lovely place!

Best Vacation Ever

Our stay at the Emerald Dream was amazing! Chris, the owner, came to greet us and show us around the house. He also shared feedback on sights to see and things to do. The beach was conveniently located and the golf cart was a plus. The home is well furnished, beautifully decorated and very kid friendly. The kitchen had all the essentials and cooking in the home was great. The bedding, linens and towels are of high quality. The beds are so comfortable and each room has TV's mounted on the walls. We highly recommend the Emerald dream, you will love it!!

Wonderful House and Wonderful Location

"We were three families: 6 adults, 6 teeneagers and 2 kids. The house was just perfect for us! Very confortable and modern. The kids loved the 2nd floor with their rooms and the pool table. The golf cart was another plus that comes with the house. We also liked the pool area which was also perfect for a barbecue night. We wish to come back soon!"

Fabulous for our Family Trip

"Our entire family of 15 truly loved and enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, fully loaded, luxury home! The house is spotless with tons of features,nothing but the best! The community is beautiful and just the right size! Chris and Jason where wonderful and always a text or message away. The golf cart came in handy since its a little walk to the beach but the house makes up for it!!! All in all we all had a fantastic time and everyone was already talking about booking for next year! Thank you again Chris and Jason!"
