We first purchased our unit when our youngest was only 2 years old...this summer we will celebrate many beach days with our 6year old grandson and his 2 YEAR OLD baby brother!

JANET STRANGE purchased this condo in 1998

Why JANET STRANGE chose North West Florida

We live in Pensacola and love to get away to the beach! Just a short drive from our home, we find ourselves relaxing as if we were a million miles away!

What makes this condo unique

We love the pool, the sandy white beach, clear calm water, and island life in general!

Condo was very clean, well decorated and the location was great. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great during our stay so aside from watching regular TV the owner provided access to her Netflix account which was a plus! The condo doesn't have a pantry however there is a dresser/hutch tastefully placed in the kitchen we used for snacks/can goods which was helpful as was the regular sized refrigerator. We really had everything we needed. Owner checked in with me prior to check-in and after check-in to ensure we had everything we needed. She was very attentive to our needs. I know I already mentioned this but I must mention once again, her place is VERY CLEAN!! We would definitely stay again!!!

Wonderful home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this condo. There is a view of the bay and the gulf. It was such an easy walk to the beach and Janet has provided many extras. The condo itself is wonderfully beach themed, great kitchen, bathrooms, deck etc. Janet was amazing to communicate with, always getting right back to us if we had any questions. Hope to return sometime in the future :-)

Absolutely lovely time! Community type feel, perfect for couples or families!

  • 5 of 5

First things first, Janet is a fabulous host. She was so sweet and attentive. She went out of her way so many times for us, and answered about a million questions via email before we even got there.

The condo is tastefully decorated and comfortable. It's everything you could want in a condo. The master bedroom was beautiful and we loved being able to go out on the balcony from the bedroom. The shower- we still miss it! It was HUGE and perfect for washing off all of the sand after coming in from the beach. The guest bedroom is also great, and my parents enjoyed coming to stay for a few days during our trip.

There were plenty of cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc. We had everything we needed to cook, and we did almost every day.

The location of the hotel is great. It is a short walk down the street to the beach, but it's not a busy road and it's a very pleasant walk. There was always dog walkers or bike riders, everyone always spoke and was very friendly.

There are quite a few people that live in the condos, so it was a very community like feel. The owners also live in town, so you know you will always be taken care of if you are to need anything pressing.

The beach was not crowded one time, and we went in the middle of summer! It was perfect for us and the water was fabulous.

One other plus to this location is it's very easy to pull out of. Pensacola Beach can get quite congested near the sky rise condos, but at this condo there are smaller buildings and not near as much traffic but you are still right in the middle of everything. Excellent restaurants are everywhere!

I would recommend this condo ten times over to families or couples looking for a nice, clean condo in a fabulous location near pristine sand and clear water.

Great location in Pensacola Beach for families

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a condo and it was a wonderful experience! We arrived to find a very clean and well appointed condo as well as gifts for our two children. The first floor location is great with parking right beneath and a deck that looks out to the Santa Rosa Sound. The bunk beds are perfect for children and a full size washer and dryer is in the unit for all the laundry that needs doing when you pack light. There is a walkover to the Gulf the equivalent of two blocks away and the owner has a beach cart for hauling your items. Even on the Memorial Day holiday the beaches by the condo were never too crowded and we easily found plenty of space to set up even when arriving later in the morning. For a lifeguarded beach, it's a quick drive to Casino Beach to the east if you want to be with the crowds. We also spent one day at a lifeguarded beach on the Sound right as you cross over the bridge into Pensacola Beach- this was perfect for the toddler as it had zero waves, hermit crabs and lots of fish and the same sugar sand for building. For needed provisions, there's a great Publix supermarket close by in Gulf Breeze and if you go early in the morning, you beat the beach traffic. For dining out, Peg Leg Pete's is within walking distance from the condo and was a great meal but super popular so we went for a late afternoon dinner. We spent most of our time on the beach, but were able to see a Blue Angels practice at the Naval Air Station Museum. This is a MUST SEE if they are flying when you visit. The museum alone is a great free attraction for all ages but the chance to watch the best flyers in the Navy up close is priceless (check the NAS Museum website for practice dates in the summer). Another excellent tourist site is Ft Pickens which is close to the condo and we hope to explore it more our next visit as well as enjoy the beaches in the Gulf Islands Seashore - it's an amazing drive to the end of the island. The owner checked in with me several times during our stay but we had zero issues or difficulties. The kitchen was well stocked and I had no problems finding what I needed to prepare meals. The pool is right outside the condo building but we tended to spend more time at the beach. There is also a very small beach area on the Santa Rosa Sound on the condo property as well as a fishing pier. Overall this was a great destination and we preferred being away from the busier main beach area, we hope to return next year.

Amazing stay - wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at Bay Watch. This condo had everything we needed, and more. And the owner was very gracious to accommodate some extra needs. She made our kids feel so welcomed!

The condo itself is very clean and updated; and, it really is in one of the best locations in the complex. The tower next door blocked the late afternoon sun, which made sitting on the porch in July bearable. The A/C cooled the condo, which was very nice given the outdoor temperature and humidity. The covered parking was a bonus as well. And, the washer and dryer were very good - needed for families, definitely. The condo was a family vacation place for a long time, and it shows in the pride of the details of the place.

The beach and pier out on the sound are very nice, and they make an excellent place from which to watch fireworks. The pool was smaller, but just fine when we were there. It was very warm (not quite as refreshing as hoped for in the heat - but this doesn't reflect on the condo itself).

The owner went above and beyond, even when we had a minor maintenance issue. She tended to it quickly and personally - the advantage of having a local owner! Thank you so much!

We look forward to returning in future years, as the location was so convenient. And, the best beach available (Langdon Beach) was only a short drive. It was the only beach on Santa Rosa Island with no algae or jellyfish during our trip.
