About Vinny Matassa

I am a water lover and are an empty-nester living out our dream of owning property and living on the Beach!!! I have spent the last 10 years vacationing on the Gulf of Mexico and were ecstatic when we found the gem of a property that we now share with the world. I live in a Townhome community that has a studio apartment over the garage that I rent here on VRBO. I travel frequently for work but make it a priority to make each stay customized for our guests.

Vinny Matassa purchased this studio in 2010

Why Vinny Matassa chose North West Florida

I love the Gulf of Mexico Beaches and Pensacola Beach is a fun, exciting but at the same time a quaint, low key and extremely friendly place to live.

What makes this studio unique

I enjoy the short stroll to the beach & bay. the accessibility of all the 'party zone' within 2-3 miles from home but yet have the quiet end of the beach that is more secluded all year round of our own beach pleasure. We love having the trolley during the busy season so that we don't have to worry about parking at the local restaurants and bars.You can prepare a nice meal and step out side in 3 minutes be on the Gulf of Mexico and enjoy a moon light stroll.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented this unit for an affordable mom-daughter beach trip. My 16-year old and I both found it to be charming and comfortable. Owners Vinny and Linda treated us as guests, not customers, and went out of their way to provide hospitality: complimentary beverages on arrival, fresh ice in the freezer, plenty of fluffy towels, beach gear (umbrella, chairs, etc.), direct phone access in case of problems. Quiet end of beach really is just 1.5 short blocks away! Look for the rinse-off shower under the courtyard stairwell to avoid tracking sand into the apartment. Recommendations: Plan ahead for Pegleg Pete's -- the two of us had a 45 minute wait (worth it) for a table on a weeknight at 5 pm; larger parties waited 1.5+ hours. Don't miss Native Cafe and Beach Pops for fantastic fresh local eats, and the gift store in the same shopping strip for lovely local artisan jewelry, clothing, decor and more. Glad my daughter talked me into buying her an underwater mask so she could see what was under those gulf waves, too.

Perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Vinnie was so attentive and helpful during our wonderful stay in this studio in Pensacola Beach. We use VRBO often and this was an outstanding rental with all the necessary amenities and extras. The bed and shower were amazing, the location perfect and it was more spacious then expected. We really appreciate everything and would highly recommend this for a Pensacola vacation.

Pretty good, AC could use some work

  • 3 of 5

Pros: This was a nice rental for 2 guests. Really nice fancy shower, great bed and a good sized TV. Full sized fridge, laundry machines available, short walk to the beach.

Cons: tiny kitchen area: don't expect to make any meals more complicated than a sandwich. The AC did not work the one night we needed it, so we tried to open the windows to get a cross breeze. One of the windows did not open and one of the ones that did had no screen. We ended up just being kind of hot that night.

Overall a pretty good experience. We enjoyed it.

Owner's Response: First I want to say sorry my studio did not meet your expectations. I take all comments to heart and want every visitor to have the best experience possible and I strive to do so. I always send welcome letters to every renter days before their arrival. This particular renter had to call me to ask how to get in the unit and I advised it is in the letter that I emailed to her that they received. Her reply was "I didn't read it". As far as my studio, That's what it is. Most studios don't have a kitchens, because they are not very large. Although this unit has a full kitchen, honestly I am not sure what this renter expected. This excellent studio has a 4 burner apartment electric stove and oven. It has a kitchen sink, full size refrigerator, a microwave, coffee pot and all cooking utensils needed to make a meal.What else is needed to create a home cook meal? If something was missing and they asked I would have been glad to make sure they had what they needed. What really surprised me was the comment about the AC. Myself and this renter chatted through text 3 different occasions and both time asked if everything was perfect. She never mentioned anything about the AC. Even the morning they left they texted me to tell me they were leaving. I thank them and asked them to make sure they gave me a review, again nothing was said about having a AC issue. To be on the safe side I sent the AC guy over when I read her review and he advise that the unit was turned down below 62 degree and must have froze up the unit. Once he reset the unit he said it was working perfect. I also understand that most people believe if they turn down the AC it will get colder faster not realizing that it doesn't and cause the unit to freeze up. In the studio I post suggestions not to turn below 65 degree. I am disappointed that this renter did not call if it wasn't working. I live 2 minutes away and I would have made sure it got fixed or made other arrangement for my renter. I don't expect a renter nor myself to be uncomfortable while renting a place.

Perfect little studio above garage within walking distance of the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect little getaway for me and my husband! The place was easy to find and great for 2 people. It is a short walk to the beach and there is a shuttle stop nearby to take you to nearby shops and restaurants. We highly recommend it!!

Very Nice Unit, Extremely Helpful and Responsive Owner and steps to the white gulf sand

  • 5 of 5

The studio unit was perfect for our weekend in Pensacola Beach. Everything was as advertised and the suggestions for dining were great...especially the Native Cafe...we even went back the second morning. All arrangements were seamless and found and got settled in the unit without any problems. The remodeled shower was fantastic. Would return and recommend. Thanks Vinny.
