Guestbook comments from the manager

We LOVED the house and the neighborhood and will definitely look to stay there again. I honestly can't say what we would complain about???....it was a small TV but we honestly didn't have time to watch it so that didn't bother us either! Everything was perfect!





Thanks, Julie, for these great comments for our future guests It was a pleasure to have you all stay with us! Just so you know, a second, larger TV screen is in the works for 2013.

A great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the cottage so much during our stay there. It was in a great location near the Naval base and the beach. Deborah was so great to speak with prior to the reservation. We are already looking to see when we can get back there. We will definitely be booking the cottage any time we get down to Pensacola to visit our son. The only thing I would suggest is that a cookie sheet be added to the kitchen items. The cottage was very well stocked and had all that we needed in the kitchen and bathrooms, with only the small exception of the cookie sheet. We loved having the Publix within walking distance. Our kids were intrigued to know the history of the cottage. They spent a great deal of time trying to figure out if all of it was original or if some rooms had been added on. We all loved the nostalgic feel of everything.

Excellent space for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well equipped for the added time we ended up spending indoors due to the cold front that came through. We enjoyed the location and the feel of being somewhere that had all the conveniences of being at home.

Awesome family rental

  • 5 of 5

My review comes a little late, but nonetheless, here it goes. This house was everything we expected and more. Plenty of room for my family of 5, plus my mom! The bathtub was a real treat (I've always loved claw-foot tubs!) and the water pressure was amazing! The kitchen had everything you need and then some! It was so close to beach accesses as well! To our surprise, there was even some beach equipment/toys for our use. Mrs. Hughes was excellent! Had everything ready when we got there and called that evening to ensure we got there safely and we had everything we needed. The only complaint I can even mention is that the bedroom in the front of the house didn't have doors that closed and stayed closed. Not really that big of an issue though as there are door stops for you to use to keep the doors shut. We will definitely be staying here again in the future! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Our favorite Pensacola vacation property

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this house 4 times now over the past few years and we just cannot say enough about how much we love the Blue La Rua and how amazing Mrs. Hughes has treated us. Being a military family, we don't always get to travel to Pensacola much since we are stationed in Virginia or North Carolina most of the time, but when we do we go to this amazing house. Everything you need is here, including a pack and play for your baby. The location is centrally located between Pensacola Beach and NAS Pensacola. We just adore this place and cannot wait to come back again. Thank you so much Mrs. Hughes <3 :)

Owner's Response: You are so very welcome! It is a pleasure to own the Blue La Rua Cottage in Pensacola's Old East Hill historic district and to make it available for visitors, especially ones like your family who have adopted it as their own and look forward to their annual visits here. It has a charm that takes people right into old world Pensacola and lets them enjoy the simple pleasures of life in a thriving Gulf Coast city with a rich 400-year history. Please come again anytime. Your family is always welcome at The Blue La Rua :)

This house had everything we needed and much much more space then what you can see in the pictures. We would definitely come back to the "Blue La Rua" for our next vacation. All of the furinhings were very beautiful as well.
