Why Kristen chose Emerald Waters Village

In 1997, we were lucky enough to live in this area for a year, before being transferred out for work. While here, we fell in love with the Emerald Coast, and have vacationed here often ever since. We have always wanted to have a vacation and potential retirement home here, and finally found this perfect home to fulfill our dreams.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Owners -- Thank you, thank you, thank you! We truly appreciate that you all made an exception and allowed such a large family reunion occur in your home. Every detail was appreciated from the razors in the showers to the built-in blinds in the doors. Your home is beautifully decorated and truly comfortable. Thank you for allowing us to experience such a beautiful environment. We will definitely return! God bless you all, The Roman Family (This comment was originally entered by our guest into the Guest Book located at the Emerald Coast Retreat and has been faithfully transcribed into this on-line format).

Excellent Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Coast Retreat was excellent for our Thanksgiving family reunion.

The kids were entertained in the 3rd floor game room and the adults were able to have fun on the main level.

The beach was an easy walk through the neighborhood and across the street (~10-12 minutes).

Kitchen had all the dinnerware and cooking utensils needed.

Overall, excellent property. The hosts take great pride in their rental home.

Perfect place for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a family gathering. It was a perfect place for adults and children. The house was clean and the local Management responded promptly to our questions. The best feature is the owner. We had multiple changes to our schedule. The owner was flexible and responsive in handling our requests.

Fabulous Labor Day Weekend

Kristin was such a pleasure and a great help during our booking process and stay. The home is lovely and comfortably fit our group. The beach is a 10 minute walk with a private gate entry. Couldn't have asked for better!

Gorgeous home walking distance from the ocean

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this place. Kristen, the owner was great to work with. She was friendly and accomodating. We stayed here with a large group of 20. The pool next to the house, although public, seems private because not many other families use it. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. She has a ton of towels and pool toys for everyone. We all had a wonderful, relaxing time. Thank you Kristen for giving us a week in your beautiful home!!

Just beautiful!

This gorgeous home was ready and waiting for our family and friends ( there was 15 of us). So many brand new furnishings and decor! It had so many amenities that we really did not need to bring much! Thank you Kristen and John!

Great Vacation Home Rental from Wonderful People at an Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

The rental experience was wonderful. The description of the home aligns with reality. The home was both beautiful and has a perfect layout for groups. Our family really enjoyed being able to be together in the same open space for meals and then having the ability to separate as desired at other times. The third floor (Tower) is where our teenagers hung out and slept. The video game and their having their own kitchenette worked out well.

Kristen is such a wonderful person for first making their beautiful home available for others to enjoy and then for setting the bar for what a rental experience should be! She contacted me directly to confirm the rental request and provided a great overview of the home and the area. Additionally, she provided the information we needed to ensure we had a great vacation as well as quickly responded to any questions we asked.

Kristen's caring nature is reflected in her beautiful home. There were a couple of welcome baskets and toiletries in each of the four (4) bathrooms. The kitchen was equipped with all the dishes and utensils needed to prepare meals for the family and the laundry room was supplied with laundry detergent and dryer sheets.

The outdoor space is great too! Between the deck space and having the pool right next door to the home, we spent plenty of time outside when we weren't at the beach. Although the pool is for use by other homes in the community, the majority of the time it was just our family. And when there were others, we all joined in for a great game of Marco Polo!

We had a group of 20 and were VERY comfortable! If you are looking for a GREAT vacation rental in a beautiful home for an excellent value and from wonderful people, then this is definitely the property for you!

Thank you again Kristen for sharing your home with my family! We had an unforgettable vacation experience.
