Guestbook comments from the owner:

Even among the Emerald Coast, this place is a true gem. We came down with a party of 6 people, and we loved that this space gave us room to spend time together when we wanted, while also allowing privacy and room to spread out. If you like to cook, the kitchen is well-equipped and unbelievably nice. Even if all you do is take a short walk from the house to the private beach access, you will have a fantastic time. We are already making plans to return. I can honestly say that our time spent in Emma's Estate was one of the only times in years I've truly felt relaxed. So when I tell you that I could not have asked for better accommodations, please know it is 100% from the heart. Thank you for the hospitality! -Ashley


May 2021

This place was amazing! So much space for my whole group, beds were super comfy, and its basically one block from the beach. You will not find a better stay in the area I promise that. The whole place was so clean and the full porches on the upper floors were so relaxing. Last note, the kitchen is phenomenal it is one feature I always appreciate because I like to cook, plenty of utensils, dishes, and pan to cook with. This place has it all. -Robert


May 2021

Emma's estate is at a perfect location, very easy to get around and walking distance to awesome bars and restaurants. The space is great, very clean and has everything you need. Especially love the gas stove and grill. Sean was also very helpful since the beginning, available at all times whenever we had any questions. Totally recommend it. -Matt T.

Great space and location for 'safety conscious' multi-family stay!

The location is a short walk to the beach and the gated community made if very safe for this safety conscious family. The auto-locking coded door entry was a definite bonus with having multiple people staying in the home to ensure safety. The kitchen was greatly stocked with items we wouldn't have even thought of and were able to use during our stay. The owners were very prompt and attentive in making sure everything was to our liking. The only suggestion we had from our stay would be to add a mirror in the other 2 bedrooms to better accommodate with multiple people in the home but the three bathrooms does help. We would definitely stay at Emma's Estate again in the future!
