Villa Lago is the newest community in Sandestin!
Looking to relax in luxurious surroundings? Casa D'Emma Due (we like it so much we bought another!) is a place where you can get away from it all. Our home is professional decorated and well equipped with everything you will need to fully enjoy your time on vacation.
Leave your car in the driveway and use the 6 person golf cart to slow down the pace of your holiday. A short ride takes you to the natural beauty of the gulf beaches or the convenience and options of Baytowne Wharf. Baytowne Wharf is a self-contained village with world class restaurants, activities, shopping and nightlife. Walk a mere 100 yards and you have access to the Villa Lago community pool.
Walk through the solid wood front door and the first thing you’ll notice beautiful crown molding and tile floors. Upgrades abound in this 2011 home. To the right of the entryway is a powder room to freshen up in upon your arrival.
Continuing down the hall the home opens up to a large living room/kitchen combo with a separate dining area. Allow your breakfast coffee to be splashed with sunlight from all the east facing windows or perhaps step out onto the patio and enjoy breakfast lakeside in the morning air.
Whatever the culinary creation, you'll have all the appointments needed to satisfy your hunger. Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, tile backslash and island give you the setting and space needed to let your inner 'Emeril' run wild!
The exquisitely decorated dining room features a dining table and 6 chairs. Step outside the back door and you have your own furnished terrace with a paver walk out just steps away from the lake and golf course.
When the occasion calls for relaxing indoors, nestle into one of the leather club chairs or couch and enjoy the flat screen HDTV.
The Second Floor:
King Master Bedroom with private sitting room/office overlooking the lake! Sleep like royalty in the luxurious bedding's. High ceilings, crown moldings, flat screen HDTV, ceiling fan, reading lamps and a walk in closet compliment the room exquisitely. The attention to detail extends to your attached, master bath. Equipped with everything you need to look and feel your best. Enjoy granite counter tops, his and her separate vanity, separate soaking tub, shower with a sitting bench and a separate commode room.
The other two bedrooms on the second floor feature a queen guest room and a bunk room. High ceilings, crown moldings, TVs, ceiling fans, reading lamps and their own closets. Additionally, each room has its own, luxurious, private bathroom! Granite counter tops, tiled shower and sumptuous towels make being indoors almost as pleasant as being out.
You will also find the laundry room with washer and dryer on the second floor.
Small, non shedding dogs allowed with prior approval and fee.

Maureen, Anthony and our 4 children live in the suburbs of Chicago. We both grew up in the surrounding area, met at Northern Illinois University and have been married 12 years. Anthony runs multiple small businesses and Maureen (in addition to helping run the businesses) has her hands full caring for the children and home.
Anthony Demma purchased this house in 2014
Eventually we hope to make our home in Florida. We bought a home in VIlla Lago last year. We were so happy with the house, location and rental prospects that we have decided to buy another! We have spent a fair amount of time on 30A over the years and love the area. When our agent showed us Sandestin, we had that 'aha' moment. Between the gorgeous landscaping, proximity to activities (both outdoor and indoor) and the immaculate home, we had a fairly easy decision to make.
Having a home on a golf course is simply a very pleasant way to live. Time seems to slow down when using the golf cart to get around.. Take a short jaunt to any number of activities (beach, golf, tennis, water sports) or simply go for a walk and observe the natural beauty of the area. A marina and village complete with shopping, restaurants, cafes, bars and numerous kids activities adds to a neighborhood with something for everyone.
This was my second time to stay in this home but definitely not the last. This home makes you feel right at home. Beautiful views of the golf course and pond out back and out of the master. I love that Villa Lago has it's own pool which was never crowded. The golf cart makes getting to the pool, the wharf or the beach easy and less mess than tracking up the SUV. Best of all though and the reason this home deserves 5 stars is my dealings with the owner. Super easy to work with, very responsive and polite every time. BIG PLUS!
The owner was great, and very accommodating. The home was clean, well decorated, and very comfortable. (even had a bed for our dog)
We were very satisfied, and would recommend this home. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!
This was our second consecutive year to vacation at this beautiful home. It is very nicely furnished with no detail missed. Beds are comfortable and each bedroom has its own bathroom. The 6-person golf cart is very useful in getting around the resort and makes each trip fun. The owner is very responsive to questions and obviously cares about his guests. We had a great time and hope to return next year.
We were fortunate to stay at this home in early June, 2016. Everything is as described, only nicer in person. The home is beautiful, the beds are comfortable, and the neighborhood is extremely safe and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed the golf cart and utilized it for all of the amenities within Sandestin. The entire booking process was a breeze and the owner is extraordinarily responsive. We will be happy to work with him in the future and feel thankful that we were able to utilize his home for our vacation.
We've stayed at several locations on the resort, by far your home was the loveliest and best fit for our family's needs.
We enjoyed our Thanksgiving stay at Casa D'Emma Due. We traveled with three adults and 4 kids (14, 11, 9, 8). The golf cart was a blast and made the trips back and forth to the beach/Publix/dinner/Baytowne Wharf an adventure. The home was equipped with everything you needed, including labeled light switches (so helpful!)Anthony was great to work with and we would definitely stay here again. You won't be disappointed!!
