During your downtime, everyone can relax in the living area featuring familiar entertainment on the 52-inch flat-screen cable TV with Roku. Sit back and unwind on the plush sofas that double as pullout beds for additional sleeping space.

Venture outside to lounge in the screened porch with a refreshing drink in hand. Add a little fire to your meal on the gas grill and dine al fresco around the outdoor table, protected from unwanted insects. Grab a nightcap on the upper balconies and enjoy the picturesque views as you bring the day to a close. Back inside, fellow travelers can snack on hors-d’oeuvres at the 4-person bar before preparing a feast in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen furnished with stainless steel appliances and ample counter space.

Take advantage of the prime location within a short walk of the private white-sand beach and community amenities including 2 heated swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, and more! After a day on the beach, shower off in the convenient downstairs full bathroom and keep your swimsuits clean with the in-unit laundry machines.

Retreat to the comfort of one of the 4 bedrooms at the end of the day. Luxury flourishes through the master bedroom boasting a king-sized bed, en-suite bathroom, and private access onto the second-story balcony, perfect for savoring morning coffee. Customizable sleeping space in the 2nd floor sitting room and 3rd floor tower bedroom make the home ideal for groups of adults or families with children.

Spend a day kayaking or paddleboarding in the crystal clear waters of the area. Rent both from La Dolce Vita along with a golf cart and bikes for quick and easy transportation!

Couldn't Ask for Better    May 08, 2021

review star

Even among the Emerald Coast, this place is a true gem. We came down with a party of 6 people, and we loved that this space gave us room to spend time together when we wanted, while also allowing privacy and room to spread out. If you like to cook, the kitchen is well-equipped and unbelievably nice. Even if all you do is take a short walk from the house to the private beach access, you will have a fantastic time. We are already making plans to return. I can honestly say that our time spent in Emma's Estate was one of the only times in years I've truly felt relaxed. So when I tell you that I could not have asked for better accommodations, please know it is 100% from the heart. Thank you for the hospitality!

Amazing stay!    May 08, 2021

review star

This place was amazing! So much space for my whole group, beds were super comfy, and its basically one block from the beach. You will not find a better stay in the area I promise that. The whole place was so clean and the full porches on the upper floors were so relaxing. Last note, the kitchen is phenomenal it is one feature I always appreciate because I like to cook, plenty of utensils, dishes, and pan to cook with. This place has it all.

Great    May 08, 2021

review star

Emma’s estate is at a perfect location, very easy to get around and walking distance to awesome bars and restaurants. The space is great, very clean and has everything you need. Especially love the gas stove and grill. Sean was also very helpful since the beginning, available at all times whenever we had any questions. Totally recommend it.
