About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Great Value for a great vacation. Cute cottage is located on gulf side of island and is a 60 second walk from the beach on a designated walking path alongside the west side of our house. Eateries and entertainment are a few minutes walk the other direction. The beach is generally not crowded at this location and excellent for shelling and watching spectacular sunsets. Private outdoor shower is great after a day at the beach. Large deck area and BBQ grill are available for your use.

Cook in our fully equipped kitchen or catch the island trolley to Peg Leg Pete's for your favorite seafood specialty. Nearby National Seashore is a wonderful place for undeveloped, natural island vistas. Walk to nearby beach shops for souvenirs and listen to free concerts at the Gulfside Pavilion May-Aug. In nearby Pensacola is a historic district with excellent shopping. Come relax, watch your worries fade in the sunset and live easy for a time.

About Ella Hess

I have lived in Gulf Breeze & Pensacola Beach since 1982. From 1983 to 2010 I was a Real Estate Broker (my Fl license is currently inactive). I moved from New Orleans to Pensacola Beach because I came to visit friends & loved the Island and all it had to offer.

Ella Hess purchased this house in 2013

Why Ella Hess chose Pensacola Beach

This property is unique because it is a piece of Pensacola Beach history. Built in 1957 it is one of the few houses not destroyed by hurricanes. It is quaint & cozy, 2 blocks from Gulf of Mexico & white sands. It is within walking distance to 'downtown' Pensacola Beach. Affordably priced yet has all your vacation needs.

What makes this house unique

Front porch swing, bar-b-que grill, two TVs with DVR, internet, books to read, games to play & no stairs to climb at this quaint cottage on the Island of Pensacola Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beach house was very clean and comfortable, you have every thing you need already there. The location is great and the outdoor shower was fantastic after a long day at the beach. The only problem was that we were only there for two day's....next time we will make it a point to stay longer.

Cozy mermaid-themed cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cute cottage was so cozy- we had a few rainy days & it was just fine! Netflix available for those times... There is a street (more of a lane) in between the cottage & the beach but conveniently located sidewalks make it easy to get there. Nice exercise! The beach area was quiet- the big condos were a little ways away. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals, & Publix is just down the road. The king size bed was very comfortable & the bunk beds were great for kids! Shops & eating places were almost within a stones throw. We had a great time, the ladies in my family- (4 ladies & 3 kids) & would recommend this small simple cottage to anyone looking to relax in a down-to-earth atmosphere!! Wish we could stay a month... Oh, I don't want to forget to mention the outdoor shower! That was sooo handy, we showered off the sand every time we came home. Totally private AND has hot water!!

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay on the beach. Wonderful, clean cottage within walking distance of the beach and several shops and restaurants! Also, loved the outdoor shower! We are looking forward to staying again next Summer.

Great location, cute place

  • 5 of 5

We came for 4 days to attend a wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is in a great location with just a short walk to shops and restaraunts. Beach access is just a hop, skip and a jump from the house. Ella was quick to answer any questions we had. We will definitely be back!

Overall A Fun and Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so charming and cute but still had all the amenities and a huge outdoor space with lots of seating as well. It was really fun staying at a house that was so easily spotted from the road due to the bright color and fun mural on the side. It was overall an incredible experience and I would definitely recommend this house to anyone!

The home was clean and inviting! Plenty of room for all of us and I especially loved the very large outdoor patio! The kids loved the bunk beds and the Netflix. We will most definately be staying again!
