About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Beautiful First floor condo literally right on the beach (be sure to ask as most are not). Huge patio/balcony with table, umbrella, chairs, recliners, etc. You can actually holler down to the kids or rest of your group to 'come eat'. The beach is in full 180 degree view and only a few steps away.

This complex was totally renovated after the storms. New awesome pool and hot tub, all walkways and patios re-surfaced. Right across the street from 'Peg Leg Pete's', local favorite oyster bar and grille with children's playground in the sand. Also convenience store, Tom Thumb, right across the street.

You have covered parking for one car right under your unit and a parking lot for another car.

This first floor unit has been a requested rental for a long time and many of the guests return every year as everyone simply loves it here. We have also just finished a facelift for the kitchen with new countertops, and have put a new 47 inch flat panel LED tv in the living room-with surround sound and ipod docking station, and 2 new 32' flat panels with DVD players in both bedrooms. I think everyone will love the new look!! Brand new for 2012, new stainless refrigerator, and stainless glass cooktop/oven! And two brand new queen beds in the guest bedroom!

Just as a note, the view out of the sliding glass door is almost like being on a cruise ship....the ocean is just a hop, skip and jump away. You will love it here!

About Carla Bouley

We have been going to this beach for over 40 years-every year! We had been looking for the right property to buy for years. When this ground floor unit became available, we knew that we had found our 2nd home. We will be using this condo on a regular basis, so we wanted it to be a home and not just a rental. We think you will notice the difference!

Carla Bouley purchased this condo in 2011

Why Carla Bouley chose Pensacola Beach

The location of the Sans Souci is one of the main reasons for it's popularity. It is surrounded by protected beachfront on both sides, making the beach in this area less congested. The fact that Peg Leg's is across the street is a huge bonus, because if you want to eat, drink and be crazy on the beach, you don't have to drive home.....just cross the street! And if you need a few groceries, one of the island's best convenience stores-the Tom Thumb, is next door to Peg Leg's, again, right across the street from the Sans Souci. There is a wonderful pool with a large hot-tub, and lots of deck area to lounge around.

What makes this condo unique

The best thing about this condo is the balcony. It is 15ft by 30ft!! You can relax and enjoy the sunrise with a hot cup of coffee, enjoy lunch with the family, breezy afternoons and spectacular sunsets. Don't forget to lay out under the stars...its a panoramic view of heaven on earth!

It is impossible to describe the views from this setting...this condo is one of only 6 ground floor units in the Sans Souci having an oversized balcony with walk-off access to the beach! There are only a handful of properties on the entire island that have this kind on view and proximity to the water. Once you get here and unpack, you never have to leave! Peg Leg Pete's, a Pensacola favorite, is directly across the street-they have wonderful seafood, a large bar, and a big playground attached in the sand for the kids. If you need ice, milk, bread and chips, the Tom Thumb is right next door. There is an asphalt sidewalk for jogging and walking, and the island's trolley car stops regularly right in front of the Sans Souci. We have a covered garage parking spot located near the elevator with large carts to help you up the elevator to the ground floor and into our home away from home. This is truly an island paradise! Check in at 3:00pm, check out is 10:00am

The Best By Far!

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying in the Sans Souci for about 20 years now. I usually stay in a ground floor because I love the huge patios and super convenience of walking down stairs to beach. This unit is by far the nicest and best maintained of any I have stayed. Carla keeps it well stocked with the conviences of home (like laundry baskets and hampers!), and the unit is very clean. I have stayed with her twice now and will always make her unit my first choice from now on.

She's very laid back and easy to work with.

Stay here - you won't be disappointed!

This past week was a wonderful experience for the entire family at the beach. Kids & grand kids stayed in this unit, grandparents in the next unit. The HUGE PATIO was a blessing for the grand-dgt to go from condo to condo. Very well stocked unit, more than enough of anything that you needed. Recommended to anyone who wants to get away from home & enjoy the comforts of home.

The perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely a wonderful experience on Pensacola Beach. The condo was exactly as described, clean beautifully furnished and RIGHT on the beach with a huge patio. Great amenities at the complex, laundy, pool. jacuzzi, walkway down to beach. The owner was easy to work with and very helpful with our questions. Definately want to stay at this property again (only longer) and would highly recommend to friends or relatives

Simply Extraordinary!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first trip to the beach and I wanted it to be a memorable one. Well, this condo delivered the ultimate in affordability and comfort! We had high expectations and this place exceeded them. We traveled with 2 seniors, my husband and myself, and 3 young children. There was more than enough room and every utensil, appliance, etc. you could ever think of. The best was on the last night when we grilled out on the back patio and were able to watch the tide roll in. We will definitely be back, year after year. Oh, and the owners were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Pensacola Beach is located on a barrier island, sometimes referred to as 'Santa Rosa Island'. It is a unique community because there are so many local, year round residents. The elementary school located on the island is recognized as one of the premier schools in the state, and there are two churches on the island as well. Fort Pickens is located on the far west end of the island, and is a great way to spend a few hours learning about the historical relevance of this national treasure. Just a short drive away is the National Naval Aviation Museum, located at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola...home of the Blue Angels!!! There is an IMAX, flight simulators, LOTS of planes....old and new! It is free admission to the museum, you just pay for theater or simulators....great fun, and highly rated-check it out! There are fishing charters available on the island, and all kinds of recreational activities that you can enjoy with the family or friends. Most of all, you have thousands of feet of sparkling white sand-some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, just waiting for you to sink your feet into.
