Emerald Waters is aptly named since it sits diagonally across from the emerald toned gulf where it shares an exclusively gated community beach access with Frangista Beach at the corner of Scenic Gulf Drive and Holiday Road in Miramar Beach. Frangista Beach itself is a prestigious residential treasure on Scenic Gulf Drive with a wonderful mix of single-family homes featuring columned neoclassical designs, stately Mediterranean styles, and nostalgic "Old Florida" reproductions. A long row of towering palms lines the main drive that also includes manicured yards adorned with white picket fences. Although the condominiums at Emerald Waters are not technically a part of Frangista Beach, they blend seamlessly into this premium locale right beside the palm-lined drive.
This Mediterranean styled low-density enclave contains only 36 condominiums that provide an air of privileged residence. Open floor plans incorporate the living, dining, and kitchen areas. Granite topped bars offer additional seating for drinks and dining. The common area is lushly landscaped with palm trees, magnolias, and other tropical plants. A lagoon-shaped swimming pool, bubbling Hot Tub, charcoal grills, picnic tables, and a patio for sunning encourage enjoyable leisure time. Private balconies provide gulf views from top floors while first-floor patios are at the tropical pool level. There are two-bedroom rentals with two full baths and three-bedroom rentals with three full baths. All Master Bedrooms feature en suite baths. Properties with three bedrooms include an additional private bathroom in a Guest Bedroom.
