About Erin Romanski

Hello- my name is Erin and my husband Jim and I have five children. Ella's Summer has become our home away from home and we try to visit often! We live in the Midwest so it's a nice break to come and visit the area! We purchased this home brand new and have decorated the home in a shabby chic relaxed beach theme. Our goal was to equip the home with everything that a family needs to make your vacation relaxing! We know how difficult it can be to remember and pack up everything you need especially for little ones. We hope that you will make Ella's Summer and the 30A/Destin area your next vacation destination!!! We have created a Facebook Page so you can see what's happening in the area called Ella's Summer and you can also follow our photos on Instagram #ellassummer

Erin Romanski purchased this house in 2013

Why Erin Romanski chose Santa Rosa Beach

We love the 30A area and the beaches along the Emerald Coast are some of the most beautiful that we have ever seen!!! The 30A areas boasts unique communities with unique and specialty shops and restaurants! Be sure to travel along the 30A coast and visit all of the unique beach communities, as well as, heading west on 98 to visit Destin!! Being on 30A is like truly stepping back and enjoying a slow pace beach vacation. With our chic beach decor you will for sure get some R & R while you are visiting. We are about 15 miles from Destin and just 5 minutes from Baytowne Wharf which is one of our favorites. We provide lots of recommendations for fun, food and things to do and see to all of our guests prior to your arrival so you can check them all out beforehand:)

What makes this house unique

Our favorite thing to do with our family is to ride our bikes to the beach and down the road to the Gulf Place where you can get a pizza at Pizza by the Sea or a cup of coffee from Sunrise Coffee. There are many other stores and restaurants to visit at Gulf Place as well!! Truly this is our little bit of paradise and we hope that you will enjoy it and make many wonderful memories with your family!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is beautiful and welcoming. Nice, modern furnishings are throughout the house with well-stocked necessities in the kitchen. The pool and a large grill are just a walk away and bicycles are available to ride to the beach or explore the enchanting small towns close by. We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay!!!

Great first family vacay with toddler

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ella's Summer beach house during our first family vacation since our son was born (he just turned 1). This was the perfect house for us as it has everything we would need such as high chair, pack n play, and extra toys for him as well as books for little ones. Being so close to the pool was nice especially since there little guy doesn't last long at pool or beach. The beach was too far for our group to walk/bike so we drove, but didn't have huge problem finding a spot to park. The pool was small but usually we were the only ones out there. My only complaint would be the sheets they really need to be replaced as they appeared old and "pillowy". We greatly enjoyed our stay and wished it was longer! The house was clean and pretty well maintained. Bikes were a bit rusted but there are a bunch to choose from in the shed. I would recommend this house especially for families with kids.

House was wonderful.Large,quiet,very clean and well furnished.

Community pool and grill were quite nice.

Had one problem during stay(minor).The owner was VERY responsive and had the problem fixed quickly.

This stay was a very positive experience.Recommend this house highly.

Great house and the perfect distance from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great shape and it was nice to have bicycles and beach chairs included. Easy and pleasant bike ride to public beach access - even walkable but better as a ride. The neighborhood was quiet and the kids loved being able to walk to the pool.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here - despite the fact that we had cold, rainy and windy beach weather. The house was immaculate, and had everything we needed - and more. Erin was easy to get in touch with and quick to respond when we had questions. My only complaint at all is that the sheets in the Master Bedroom were very pilly and itchy, and weren't very comfortable to sleep on. We also hate that the weather wasn't warm enough for us to get a chance to enjoy the neighborhood pool - maybe next time! Overall, I highly recommend this house! :)

Home Away from Home Paradise

This beautifully accommodating home made it completely functional for a family of 5 to live comfortably while basking in all of the fun life surroundinng us. Everything from the beaches, to the restaurants, arcades and bike riding was so memorable and made lasting impressions on my little boy's hearts. The house was everything as described, we truly enjoyed our stay at Ella's Summer Beach House
