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

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.

This is a perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our grown children. Everyone loved the views - beautiful back and front. The kitchen is so well equipped, there was even a food processor. The hand held shower out front and outdoor shower were so appreciated. I loved being able to wash clothes every day.

The location could not be better! Beautiful beach within steps, private boardwalk out back on Lafitte Cove that went all the way to Peg Leg Pete's and just beyond, a convenience store, and even a trolley stop right out front on Ft. Pickens made this house one we will return to again. Thank you for a perfect week!

Excellent property...Ease of check in/out was the best

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the "Best of Both Worlds" property for the week of July 4th. First the ease of checking in/out was the best experience we've ever had. Before our trip, Lorene sent us an email walking through arrival and departure information, along with detail descriptions of things to do while there. There is also a notebook on the counter that has all of these things and more. The home was beyond my expectations. Especially the kitchen. I usually pack larger pots and kitchen utensils I will need and when we arrived I told my husband to leave that box in the car. There wasn't anything I needed that wasn't supplied. The beds are comfortable and the house is decorated beautifully. There was a feeling of openness throughout and access to the beach and the sound. We had our jet skies and were able to pull right up to the dock area in the back of the home. Overall, the property description was accurate, however, it was better than described. The grounds and house are very well maintained and beautiful. I highly recommend staying here. While you're there, make sure you take a trip to Joe Patti's Seafood Market, eat at Peg Leg's (which you can easily walk to), and take the trolley to at Flounders, Sidelines, and Margherittaville's Landshark

Beautiful Accomodations!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed staying at this beach house and it was the best of both worlds! Easy beach access and nice to have boat dock in back yard! Owners are thorough with instructions for the home and information about Pensacola Beach....we come here every year and learned some new things about our favorite area! Thanks for a great place to have our annual family vacation! We will come back!

fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Cant say enough good about our stay. House was immaculate. Location couldnt be beat, being on both gulf and sound sides. Stayed with extended (3 generation families) and everyone had a great time. Owner went out of their way to make things comfortable and helped with whatever questions we had. Kids had a blast with the trolley, and of course the beaches.

Just can't be better!

  • 5 of 5

The best VRBO experience we've had yet. The owners were great to work with and their home was even better. We had our entire family there, spending time on the beach in front of us and an inlet from the bay in the back yard. We hope to stay there next time we're in Pensacola. Thanks for the great memories.
