About the property

great house with fenced back yard, very clean, nice size rooms.

There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home… Except for Auntie Em’s, that is! Pack a suitcase and be whisked away to a home away from home in the heart of Laurel Hill, FL. This beautiful three-bedroom, two-bath cottage is recently renovated, fully furnished with upscale-quality decor, and equipped with all modern amenities. Whether you’re staying for a church homecoming, visiting family, or checking out Northwest Florida, Auntie Em’s will be a cozy stop-off.

The open-concept living space is perfect for hosting family and friends. The modern kitchen has tons of counter space and brand new appliances, along with everything you need to whip up a meal — dishes, cookware, toaster, blender, and coffee maker. If cooking outside is more to your liking, enjoy the new deck, porch swing and outdoor dining table and chairs. The back yard is private and fully fenced with a brand new deck, outdoor table, and swing for grilling fun!! For those who prefer to eat Southern fare out, the house is located around the corner from the Laurel Hill Grill.

Entertain guests or relax in front of the fireplace on the comfortable and well-appointed living room furniture. Board games and cards and a TV and DVD player are provided for your enjoyment. Home is complete with free WiFi access.

You and up to five guests will sleep peacefully at Auntie Em’s, which has bedrooms equipped with high quality full, queen, and king mattresses. The king and full share the recently updated four-piece washroom, and the queen has an en suite with custom walk-in shower.

About Jean Brooks

Auntie Em's was our second rehab project in Laurel Hill. We have enjoyed taking good properties and making them comfortable and friendly for short term guests. We love the quiet country life style so close to the beach. We hope you will make Auntie Em's your home away from home.

Jean Brooks purchased this house in 2015

Why Jean Brooks chose Laurel Hill

Auntie Em's ......................there is no place like home! We have done a full remodel on this house and have added very high end finishes for your living pleasure. Our hope is to provide high end living at a budget price so you will just keep coming back. This is a great spot in a quiet community. Quiet enjoyment is our motto.

Guestbook comments from the owner

One of the things I love about my guests at "Auntie Em's" is that they appreciate the house. My most recent guests, Jon and Martha were great to do business with. They were communicative, clean and followed the exit routine to a "T". They took great care of the house and I welcome them back any time!

Auntie Em's - a real gem!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed in Auntie Em's due to a death in the family in Crestview, Florida. This place is a gem! We were so pleased with every aspect - space, lay-out, cleanliness, etc. Did I mention CLEANLINESS? It was absolutely spotless! The bedding was high quality (we are super-picky) & comfy. The home is tastefully decorated and has been recently renovated - very well done! Jean was a jewel to deal with & made this ordeal so much easier to handle. We are making another trip to this area in August for a family gathering and are looking forward to staying at Auntie Em's - thank you so much for a wonderful retreat.
