Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Plaza Primera - LaBahia

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Gulf & sound views; (Sleeps 4-5)

Call me directly at 601.750.8601 for a quick response. Be sure to ask me about our layaway plan. The sooner you get booked, the sooner you can relax and start thinking about the adventures you and your family will have on the World's Most Beautiful Beaches!

A BIG thank you to all those who stayed with us this past summer! And thank you for the wonderful reviews. Comments so far: Awesome, beautiful! Thank you for joining our 'family' and for continuing to stay at Water Bugs.

You will enjoy new kitchen cabinets with soft-close drawers (love those!), granite counters, deep stainless sinks, new aqua blue Keurig, new GE washer/dryer, new Kohler toilets, AND new floors in the living/dining area as well as the master bedroom.

If you like the water, come stay with us! Sit on the deck and enjoy water views of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Pensacola Sound.

Because of our location on the island and in our complex, you can enjoy both the awesome sunsets and sunrises. From our balcony the Gulf is to your left, the pool and pavillion are below you, and the Sound is to your right.

There is nothing blocking your view of the Gulf. Direct beach front access from this property onto the Sound. Walk directly across the street to public beach. Nothing stands in your way; no buildings, trees -- just sugar white sand, sea oats, and dunes. Emerald water as far as you can see.

This condo is in a small complex of 22 units of friendly folks. Just bring your swimsuit and beach towels and, of course, sunscreen!

In addition to the Beaches, the Pensacola Bay Area has lots to offer. The downtown area is rich with over 450 years of history and great events; Beulafest, Riverwalk Arts Festival, and the Pensacola JazzFest are a few that will liven up your springtime visit.

Come see for yourself what a wonderful time you and your family can have, and the memories you can create, at our place on the World's Most Beautiful Beach.

About Lucy Mitchell

I have been going to the Florida Panhandle for close to 50 years. Bill is originally from Ohio, graduated from Ohio State, but once he saw the beautiful white sand and emerald water he was hooked. Didn't take him long to understand why we call it the Emerald Coast.

We live outside Jackson, Mississippi, and many of you travel close to our 'real' house when you travel up and down Interstate 55.

Lucy Mitchell purchased this condo in 2000

Why Lucy Mitchell chose Pensacola Beach

Bill and I bought this property for an anniversary. He wanted Destin, but I convinced him to try my favorite, Pensacola Beach. He did and we have never looked back.

Pensacola is an old, historic town. We like that it has a real city, not just a tourist attraction, just back across the bridge.

What makes this condo unique

We particularly like to cater to smaller families, because we feel like our unit, and our complex, is so very family friendly.

Since our building sits perpendicular to the Island, we have a distinct advantage for beautiful views. In the morning you can see the sunrise and in the afternoon the sunsets. In the meantime, you can actually see the waves crashing in the Gulf from the sofa! The little ones can enjoy the Sound side where the waves are usually very small. The older ones can enjoy the surf across the street. The pool is directly below our unit for the other ones.

We also have a swing downstairs in front of the parking space, as well as a large picnic table.

My husband and I and two teenage kids stayed here for a week and loved it. Loved sitting on the deck before dawn. It was so peaceful hearing the waves across the street. Lucy is excellent to work with if you have any questions. The unit is as described and perfect for us. This is on the quite end of the beach which we loved. We enjoy looking for shells at night. Condo was very clean. We would like to return. It's a short drive to Fort Pickens. We went to Watch the Blue Angels practice and glad we did. It is a free event! Favorite restaurants for us were Peg Leg Petes, Grand Marlin and the Cuban place at the boardwalk.

This condo was absolutely perfect and very family friendly! We could see the Gulf and hear the beautiful sound from our front deck. It is right across the road (a small 2 lane road) from the beach, very easily accessible. The condo had a lot of light, and the colors and decor were perfect for a beach getaway. VERY, VERY CLEAN. If we venture to Pensacola Beach again, we will definitely contact this owner to rent here again, hands down. We drove 11 hours to get here and we could not have been more satisfied when we walked through the door. The owner was so helpful and friendly, giving us a suggestion list of places to go and things to see while we were there. She was just so sweet and wonderful to work with. You cannot go wrong by renting this lovely condo! Thank you for such a relaxing, wonderful time in Pensacola Beach!

Owner's Response: Your vacation experience is the ultimate goal that my husband and I have strived to present to our clients. I try to leave nothing for our guests to do or worry about except getting a full and relaxing visit to the Florida Gulf Shore. We cannot take credit for the pristine beaches or the emerald green waters, but we do try to deliver everything you will need for a most enjoyable visit. Thank you for the lovely comments! It is very satisfying for us to have you appreciate our little piece of paradise and that our hard work was so meaningful to you and your family.

Great Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect condo for my daughter and I. We loved having our own sleeping area and bathroom. Great location with wonderful views, comfortable and cozy. I would definitely recommend this beach getaway. Since the weather was in the 50's, rainy and foggy, we were not able to take full advantage of the beautiful beaches and pool. Maybe next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! My husband and I work to make sure that our unit is ready and our renters will have an enjoyable, relaxing time. Our close proximity to the Gulf, the Sound, and the pool make for a great location. We do our best to answer any questions and concerns potential renters may have. Over the years, we have "met" many people who then become part of our family who love our condo on the World's Most Beautiful Beach as much as we do!

Wonderful beach getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo & area! We've been on beach vacations the last 4 years in different areas, Panama city, Orange beach, Gulf Shores, but this was the best of all! The owners were so friendly to work with, the condo was beautiful & impeccably clean, & the beaches were perfect. We loved having the option of the bay side & the Gulf. Having chairs & toys to use on the bay side was so nice! Sitting back & watching the sunset and dolphins playing in the bay, you just can't get any better than that! We also enjoyed finding all the shells on the beach, hunting sand & hermit crabs, swimming at the beaches & pool, and taking advantage of all the family friendly activities. We hope to make this a repeat vacation spot. Thanks Bill & Lucy for sharing your little spot of paradise!
