Great Place to Stay
"Our family has been traveling to 30-a every summer for 10+ years. We have stayed in many different places as our rental needs have changed. In all these trips, this house definitely has its place as one of the best. There was plenty of room for the 11 of us to move around without once feeling crowded. The location is about as close as you can get to the beach without being directly on the water. The lake provides a wonderful backdrop for some incredible sunsets. The golf cart is a welcomed extra, but you almost don't need it you are so close. All these things make this house a wonderful choice. But above all this is the dedication of the owners to ensure that you have a great stay. We had the unfortunate surprise of the upstairs air-conditioning being out upon our arrival. While this was definitely not the way we wanted to start the vacation, Jim was tireless in making sure the unit was not just repaired, but repaired correctly. This ultimately resulted in a new unit being installed during our stay. Even the air-conditioning company commented on how impressed they were with his willingness to have everything taken care of and noted that most owners would not have taken the care that he did. Without our asking he made arrangements for us to stay elsewhere for the night if the air could not be repaired. Thankfully that was not necessary. So to those looking for a quality house with a great location and an owner willing to do what is necessary to make your stay a great one this is the place for you. We look forward to visiting again in the future. Thanks again for a great trip."

"Our family (daughter, son-in-law, myself and my maltese/terrier mix) had a wonderful time at the Ema Louise townhouse. The unit was clean, well-equipped and Chris, the owner, went out of his way to be helpful from the beginning to the end of our experience. It is a short 5 minute walk to the beach which was beautiful and not at all crowded. There are plenty of good restaurants to choose from and bike paths to enjoy. We enjoyed having coffee and breakfast on the balconies which overlook a lake and you can get a glimpse of the ocean from the upper balcony. We saw dolphin swimming about 100 yards out two different mornings. I would definitely stay at the Ema Louise again. Thanks again Chris for your hospitality."

"Our vacation was great. This beach house is very clean and well maintained. Nice up to date furnishings. Lots of amenities - the house had everything we needed. Pool is nice and the walk to the beach is very short, super easy couple minute walk where there is gorgeous white sand, crystal blue water and never many people on the beach. We enjoyed being able to bike or walk to shops and restaurants. Great location in between Destin and Seaside with a lot less people!"

"This was our first experience renting a beach home using this website and it was an outstanding one. Our interactions with the owner were very positive. This beach condo is more beautiful than the pictures convey and is located on an especially quiet section of 30A. The home easily accommodated our family which included three generations with two grandchildren ages 18 months and age four. The kitchen is very well equipped and the home includes binoculars and books about the area. The convenience of the pool and beach to the home was wonderful.
Everyone enjoyed the beach. The water is especially clear and is quite shallow for a good distance out to two sand bars. For the week that we were here, we shared the beach with only one or two other families. We saw dolphin almost daily, as well as a sea turtle and many water birds. Our family rented a sea kayak for several days and enjoyed paddling in the gulf as well as catching several king and Spanish mackerel. We would definitely recommend this home highly as a lovely vacation spot and hope to return."
