About Lorene Patterson

We are originally from Maine, my husband came down as chief engineer for American Cyanamid Co in 1990, got sand between his toes and has become a true floridian.I have my real estate license and have never looked back. Its just so much fun here. The property is named EMMAS WAY, for our granddaughter as she always has everything her way or she the name......

Lorene Patterson purchased this house in 1994

Why Lorene Patterson chose Pensacola Beach

We live here 7 months of the year and in Maine 5 months. This is our home, and want other people to experience what we are able to. It is absolutly drop dead beautiful here with the emerald green waters, white sand beaches and great restaurants and a state park all within biking and walking distance

What makes this house unique

White sand, Peg Leg Petes so close you can almost touch it, accross the road a beach to die for. Walk down town, bike or rollerblade on the sidewalk out front. watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from balconys on all sides. And on and on and on. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.

Please note the HOME only accommodates "8" people. Do not plan to sleep more...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent property...Ease of check in/out was the best

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the "Best of Both Worlds" property for the week of July 4th. First the ease of checking in/out was the best experience we've ever had. Before our trip, Lorene sent us an email walking through arrival and departure information, along with detail descriptions of things to do while there. There is also a notebook on the counter that has all of these things and more. The home was beyond my expectations. Especially the kitchen. I usually pack larger pots and kitchen utensils I will need and when we arrived I told my husband to leave that box in the car. There wasn't anything I needed that wasn't supplied. The beds are comfortable and the house is decorated beautifully. There was a feeling of openness throughout and access to the beach and the sound. We had our jet skies and were able to pull right up to the dock area in the back of the home. Overall, the property description was accurate, however, it was better than described. The grounds and house are very well maintained and beautiful. I highly recommend staying here. While you're there, make sure you take a trip to Joe Patti's Seafood Market, eat at Peg Leg's (which you can easily walk to), and take the trolley to at Flounders, Sidelines, and Margherittaville's Landshark

Beautiful Accomodations!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed staying at this beach house and it was the best of both worlds! Easy beach access and nice to have boat dock in back yard! Owners are thorough with instructions for the home and information about Pensacola Beach....we come here every year and learned some new things about our favorite area! Thanks for a great place to have our annual family vacation! We will come back!

fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Cant say enough good about our stay. House was immaculate. Location couldnt be beat, being on both gulf and sound sides. Stayed with extended (3 generation families) and everyone had a great time. Owner went out of their way to make things comfortable and helped with whatever questions we had. Kids had a blast with the trolley, and of course the beaches.

Just can't be better!

  • 5 of 5

The best VRBO experience we've had yet. The owners were great to work with and their home was even better. We had our entire family there, spending time on the beach in front of us and an inlet from the bay in the back yard. We hope to stay there next time we're in Pensacola. Thanks for the great memories.

OMG - best place ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our trip and stay so very much. We travel to Pensacola Beach every year and this was a first stay for us in a house. I will never stay at a hotel there again, and I hope this house is always available when we come there. The inside was spectacular, just as promised. There was plenty of room for all 8 of us. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance a and tool you need. But wait- I need to tell you about the outside and location. The best of the bay and the best of the gulf. The owner's are fantastic, very helpful and accommodating.

Recently visited this home and was so displeased. The place was filthy with dust for days. You could tell that the cleaning crew is obviously not focused on details. When we arrived, there was not even a roll of tissue until you can get to a store. Obviously this is about making money and not about ensuring the comfort of your clients. The owners are from Maine and have Zero personality or memory. Never been so humiliated in my entire life. It feels like you are being watched 24/7. Not an enjoyable vacation when you are 50 years old and trying to enjoy time with your children. I will never visit this place again.

Owner's Response: So sorry to hear about our tenants review. This was their second visit to our home and were great tenants the first time and we invited them to return. Our home sleeps 8 people and they arrived with 10-12.. Our cleaning crew informed us of that..The house will not accommodate that many people, it is just to small. I tell all tenants that is the max..Check in time is 4P, they arrived at 2P banging on the door, and cleaning lady allowed them all to go to the bathroom and asked them to come back at 4P. She was trying to get cleaned.They were angry. We have parking for 2 cars in the garage amd 2 in the yard. They had 2 boat trailers and other trucks. They parked in the neighors yard as she was not there. And, the neighbor called me screaming that they were parking there. They did not move their cars accross the street as they were told to. They also were told that 12 people was not acceptable, but they went out and bought blow up mattresses an continued to stay there. Cleaning people informed me of boxes in the trash that mattresses were in. the trash was piled so high that she was afraid the trash company would not take it. They were loud and noisy all week and other neighbors complained to us of such. As you can see 2 weeks before we had a great reccommendation from previous tenants. These people were obnoxious , upset the cleaning crew and the neighbors. They will not be welcome back. The woman informed me she was a christian. I don't know what that means. I'm sorry that this happened . I am sorry to know that our first relationship deteriorated to this. They were very nice and gave a great review the first time they were there. I have a beautiful home and live in it 7 months out of the year. I can't believe their unkind comments. My cleaner has been with me for a year and she is excellent, she cleans my house every week and very much in demand, she works all over the island. I don't know what they found dirty.
