Sue Jones purchased this house in 2017

Why Sue Jones chose Pensacola Beach

We have spent time at beaches across the world, and Pensacola Beach is one of the prettiest. In addition, we also have private boat dockage at the edge of our back patio. The people in Pensacola are wonderful and good friends are easy to find. The beach in front of the house is not as crowded as some, but the restaurants, bars, and other tourist amenities are very close.

What makes this house unique

Casa de Grace has both boat dockage and beach front access. In addition, it is just a few steps from one of the best restaurants on Pensacola Beach, Peg Leg Pete's Oyster Bar. Walk down town, bike or rollerblade on the sidewalk out front. Watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from balconies on all sides. In the master bedroom you wake up each morning to a beautiful sunrise and evening's enjoy the sunsets over the water from the back deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was fantastic, We absolutely loved the house and the location was more convenient on your side as opposed to the other side. That's for sharing your house with us

Gulf Coast Divers Dream Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Pictures and descriptions do not do this beautiful home justice. They have the whole package. Canal side comfort for your boat and barbecuing on the patio with views of the sound are on the north side of the property. Comfortable table and chairs on decks with unobstructed viewing of the Gulf of Mexico are on the south side. The canal neighborhood is quiet and friendly. You feel like you've moved your own home to the emerald coast. Squeaky clean and comfortable on the inside the layout has a wonderful kitchen, dining area and sofa's galore. The private bedrooms/baths are 5 star hotel clean and just right. Everywhere you turn the owners have made a sincere effort to add little comforts to your stay. Best of all the whole experience was effortless. Sue and Bob were wonderful owners to work with.

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

PERFECT, PERFECT, PERFECT!!

We loved this home. Everything you need and more. My boys loved fishing off the back dock and the short walk to the beach was great! Great restaurant within walking distance from the home.

I can't even say enough good things about this property. It was super clean, well stocked, and the owners are the BEST we have ever rented from.

We are hoping to book again very soon.

Truly the best of both worlds!

  • 5 of 5

The beach was an easy walk and we used our jetski the entire time we were there! It was so nice to just get on and go from the back dock! Peg legs petes just steps away was a huge bonus!!!! We had oysters every day! The house was well equipped and the master suite was awesome! The view of the ocean from the master deck was beautiful! Also the back deck view of the bay for sunsets! We had a terrific time!

We truly enjoyed our time at this Pensacola Beach Vacation home. The owners, Sue and her husband, emailed us a personal message a couple of weeks before our stay. We have stayed many VRBO homes and never had such kindness from owners. First of all, she asked us if we would like to check in a day or two early because no one had rented the week before us. Then when we arrived, the house was very clean and had little extras like liquid soap in all bathrooms and at all sinks, supplied with other necessities and a "fully" stocked kitchen. There was even a bag of charcoal and lighter fluid out for the grill on the back patio. Our family of 7, my husband, 4 children and my son's fiancé, fit perfectly in this home. The location of this home is perfect; it is about a 1 1/2 miles from the center of the town; my daughter and I rented bikes and road them to have breakfast in town many mornings. Also, one of the best parts about location was we were about 6 houses down from one of the best restaurants in Pensacola, Peg Leg Pete's. We would put our name in the 1 hour wait list and go back to house or beach and hangout till they texted us that table was ready. I cannot say Enough great things about the location; the beach access is directly across the street. This house is located right in front of boardwalk; some of the other houses in this subdivision of homes have quiet a walk to the boardwalk. We vacationed here in busy vacation time and we felt like we had the beach to ourselves!

I can't say enough great things about this vacation home! If you are looking for relaxation, convenience and luxury; this is the house for you!

Perfect beach location for all ages - close to everything yet far enough for some quiet beach time

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people on our trip, my husband and 19m old, my mom, brother, sister, and my in-laws. This house had it all; each room had its own bathroom and was controlled by its own ductless air conditioner, very popular in Europe and other countries. I was having a hard time trying to find the perfect vacation home for my whole family; everyone has very specific temperature tolerances. Some like it warm inside (75+) some like it very cold (65ish) and others like it normal living temps indoors. The main floor had the living area and a bedroom which was controlled by a central unit. The front main balcony was large and spacious overlooking the beach, wonderful people watching. The sound proof windows offered great barriers between indoor and outdoor talk. My son slept quietly on the 3rd floor master even with the 4th of July fireworks. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook and eat with, we bought all the food, spices and condiments so if you prefer special spices bring it from home so you don’t have to buy it. Also, I’d recommend bringing your own paper plates and plastic cups to avoid dishes. I would also bring your own tents, beach chairs and other beach accessories to play and set up, they had a couple things but we had lots of our own as well. They did have a charcoal grill which was perfect for saving money on eating out. There was so much to do in Pensacola besides beaching like the boardwalk, nice beachfront restaurants, FREE entrance to the Aviation Museum, the Blue Angels practices and show were the highlight of our whole week, fun FREE snorkeling beach on Ft Pickens (Langdon Beach) walking distance to the local convenience store, bike rentals, paddle boarding, jet skis, the trolley stop right outside the house was fun to watch and took you all over the island, the back of the house had quick access to the bay, Peg Legs restaurant a few houses down, very popular local seafood market Joe Patties, great friendly people and so much more that I can’t even think of it all right now. Not a crowded beach at all, the tourist condos were far enough away so you felt like you had some peace and quiet on the beach, just far enough from the crazy fun but close enough so you could get there in under a 10 minute drive. We all agree we would go back!!

Our wedding 6/26/17

  • 5 of 5

I honestly don't have the words to express our experience at this perfect house! We rented the house back in October for our June wedding. We based our decision on the pictures of the property as well as the location, since we were getting married on the beach we wanted something that our guest could walk back over to for our small reception.... The house and location were PERFECT! Our reception was outside on the back patio with the bay and palm trees as the background.

This house accommodated our family but was centrally located for everyone of our out of town guest to stay close by. We were all within walking distance to the beach, Peg Leg Pete's and each other.

We had 7 in our family and the accommodations were awesome! The views from each of the balconies were breath taking..... it was so nice and relaxing to sit out on the patio with a cup of coffee or a beverage and feel the cool breeze and the ocean air.

I can't say enough about this beautiful home!

We hope to make it a tradition for our family to get together in the future!

Thanks Bob and Sue!

Love,

Jamie and Jim Self

and our 7 adult kiddos! :)
