Absolutely great experience!

  • 5 of 5

The house was nicely decorated and large enough to accommodate all 9 of us, 4 adults and 5 kids 6 and under. It could have fit 2 more people on the bunk beds we didn't use since all my kids decided to sleep on the pullouts. Owner was super accommodating and super nice. Short walk to the beach, which is a little further than I would have liked, but I'm sure if this place was on the beach it would have been way out of our price range. The pool, which you are about directly across from, was small but it was fine since it didn't get crowded. I would definitely recommend the Emma Louis a great place to stay and we will come back here again!

Absolutely loved everything! The townhouse is wonderful for families vacations together. Nice little walk to the beach. Great location half way to PCB and Destin. Can't wait to go back.

We had a blast staying at this property. Beautiful with tons of amenities close. Owner of the property is amazing. He even took to the time to talk and joke with the kids. Would highly recommend this property.

Vacationing from Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Emma Louise for spring break with our Six kids ages 2 to 14 and loved it!! It was super clean and had plenty of room for all 8 of us! This was our first time in Destin and had a fabulous time... Very family oriented. We spent most of our time at the beach. The Emma Louis is very quiet and on a cul de sac which I liked. We hope to visit again!

Great condo in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two and a half weeks starting in mid January 2016. While it wasn't really beach weather, the temps were usually in the mid 50's to low 60's. Night temps were 30's - 50's. There is a nice pool in the complex, but it was not heated.

The Condo was clean and spacious. The ground floor had a nice entrance way. After ascending 18 steps to the first floor, there was a bedroom with full bath, large kitchen with center bar style cabinet with 2 stools, dining room table and large living room and a balcony. Up another 18 stairs to the second floor was a guest room with full bed and set of bunk beds, and full bath. The hallway closet had a large load washer and dryer, the large master with king bed had a full bath and a balcony. Each floor had tall ceilings.

The only negative about the condo was the spotty and very slow wi-fi.

The owner had beach chairs and umbrella for use. There was also a propane grill for use.

We enjoyed a lot of biking (and there are bike rental stores nearby). We brought our own bikes. While you can bike right from the condo to the beach or surrounding area - we really enjoyed bringing our bikes further down Route 30A and biking in Sea Side (where the Truman show with Jim Carey was filmed). We also enjoyed the neighboring village of Water Color with great wooden paths, piers, and water views!

Must do while you are here:

Visit the beach with powdered white sugar-like sand.

Go to McGuire's Irish Pub in Destin - great food and 1.5 million dollars of one dollar bills stapled to the walls and ceilings. You can't believe it unless you see it! (Wednesday during lunch they have a fried chicken special - not available any other day.)

Harborside shops in Destin (behind Windham hotel and next to Margaritaville). Nice shops but even better for the atmosphere, sunsets and water views. We saw dolphins swimming in the harbor a couple of times at sunset.

Go to Baytown Wharf in San Destin. You have to stop at the gate and tell them that you would like to visit the shops. Lots of quaint shops and restaurants plus great walking paths. Next time we'll try and bike there.

Go over the bridge to Fort Walton Beach and then to the Eglin Air Force base museum. They have a couple dozen planes (bombers, spy planes, fighter jets, etc) and a museum. It's free.

We visited Panama City Beach which was a good day trip. Kind of touristy but worth a visit.

Visit the Seaside and Watercolor neighborhoods.
