Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Gulf Breeze - Sunshine House At Eventide

4 Br, 3.5 Ba, Sleeps 10 - Great Beach And Yard For Endless Family Fun

Everything you need to make this vacation the best one ever is right here in this amazing home! A wrap around deck provides the perfect spot for you and your family to watch dolphins, sailboats, the world famous Blue Angels, and more! You'll find gorgeous views from every room in the house!

This home has a large 3D television in the main room, with enough 3D glasses for 11. A vast library of regular and 3D movies is available, as is a Wii gaming system and a cabinet full of board games. There is also an abundance of children's and adult books.

In the garage, you'll find two kayaks (a single seater and a two-seater), a standup paddleboard, and enough floats and rafts for the entire family to enjoy! The shallow waters of the sound are absolutely ideal for small children!

There are plenty of sun umbrellas and a 13' x 13' canopy for those who want to enjoy the beach while staying cool in the shade. You can also ride any of the available bikes along the paved path running parallel to Gulf Islands National Seashore!

For those who like to fish, there are mullet, flounder, and redfish right in your back yard! The outside shower makes it convenient to wash the salt off before going inside, and the washer and dryer in the garage are perfect for beach towels.

The gourmet kitchen is a chef's paradise! Double ovens, a large island, a gas-top range, and two refrigerators make cooking and baking here a real treat! The breakfast bar seats five, and the dining room table seats eight, so there's plenty of room for everyone!

Other great amenities include:

* an elevator to assist with heavy luggage, groceries, and tired legs

* a Kitchenaid professional stand mixer

* two blenders (margaritas!)

* a Vita-Mix (smoothies and shakes!)

* a large crockpot (for easy meals at the beach!)

* a Keurig Vue coffee machine (Vue cups not included)

* two standard coffee pots

* a high efficiency washer and dryer off the kitchen

* a high-powered spotting scope and several sets of binoculars

* a gas grill in the garage

* a gas fireplace

* coolers and life jackets galore!

This amazing home is minutes away from Pensacola Beach without the beach traffic or beach tolls, and it's located right next to the toll bridge of Pensacola Beach. This gorgeous home sleeps 10-12 with 1 King, 2 Queens, a sleeper sofa, and two extra large cots (inflatable mattresses are available to accommodate even more sleepers!).

Sunshine House does not allow pets and is strictly non-smoking.

About Stephanie Friedrich

I grew up in the Midwest, but have been drawn to the water and beach since I was little. I have a large family who loves this home as much as I do, and we're all eager to share its amazing beauty with you!

Stephanie Friedrich purchased this house in 2011

Why Stephanie Friedrich chose North West Florida

I vacationed in this area as a child and fell in love with the emerald waters, white sand beaches, and southern hospitality. When I was ready to buy a "forever" home, the only option I ever considered was beachfront in the panhandle. In the few short years I've owned this amazing home, it has provided endless memories with my family and friends, and I'd like to let other families experience the same.

What makes this house unique

As soon as you walk through the front door, this place just feels like home! It has the added security of being in a gated community, so there are no worries about letting kids run around the neighborhood and play with the other children. Since this home is hidden behind a shopping center, you feel the beauty and safety of seclusion on your own private beach, but you're still within walking distance of all the amenities. It really is the best of both worlds!

The wrap around deck provides two chaise lounges for sunning, but also a great shaded area where you can enjoy your morning coffee or watch the kids play in the water while you enjoy the afternoon breeze in the shade! The seating area on the ground level patio also offers great views of the water, and there's nothing better than an afternoon nap in the hammock!

Labor Day weekend

  • 3 of 5

Very beautiful home, more than enough room for my family and a great view. BUT the owner was very unprofessional. Our second night there she busted up in the home with her spare key to "tell" us where to park our cars even though she has my phone number and had been texting me all that day. Whatever to that though, we enjoyed ourselves and didn't let her bad business ruin our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input, La’Kierra. If you take a few moments to read the other reviews people have left for Sunshine House, you’ll see they are quite the opposite of yours. To clarify for potential future guests who deserve “the rest of the story…”. I did not “bust up” in the home using my spare key… I simply walked through the open deck door (which was, literally, open… with the AC running). And I only came to the house because I had more than one neighbor complain that there was *extremely* loud, *extremely* profane music blasting from the home. And I had another report of a police car driving through the neighborhood. I had been texting with the guest, that is true, but when I received word from neighbors on Saturday evening about not only the offensive music, but that cars were double parked in the roundabout and were blocking the road, I was compelled to see the situation myself. There is a clause in the rental agreement that states, “Guest shall allow Homeowner access to the property for purposes of repair and inspection. Homeowner shall exercise this right of access in a reasonable manner.” Checking on my home when there are noise and safety complaints from neighbors is, I believe, perfectly reasonable. And I was at the home for five minutes. The home was in extremely poor condition when I arrived Monday to check out the guest. I was, unfortunately, unable to do a walkthrough with the guest because she claimed she had a “family emergency” which arose ten minutes before I arrived. The house was filthy with trash overflowing. There were several spills on the floor and walls, the white couch pillows were ruined by a pink liquid, there was paint missing from a corner of the living room, a bathroom window was left wide open and was unable to be closed, and the kitchen looked, for lack of a better term, like a war zone. I can only surmise the guest accused me of being unprofessional because I advised her I had never seen the house in worse shape and perhaps that embarrassed her....

Sunshine House

  • 5 of 5

The stay here was terrific, with a beautiful house and a kitchen to die for. The whole house was super clean.

It was a very "kid oriented" place with lots for them to do. Our five year old said, "I love this house". Toys inside and out were just right for our age groups. The water was perfect for little ones with ripple kinds of waves. The kids were able to play in the water with us watching from the patio. Yet, the "big" waves were only a mile away. I would recommend Sunshine Hous for everyone.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Sunshine House at Eventide is one of the best vacation homes that we have rented and we have rented many homes over the past 20 years in Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi. This home has everything. It is beautiful, clean, comfortable and large enough for grandparents, children and grandchildren. You don't need to bring a thing, except for your luggage.

The best thing about the Sunshine House is its location. It is situated directly on the beach. It is so easy to set up chairs and a canopy every morning. You just need to walk steps for a drink, to fix lunch or to use the bathroom. We had an 18 month old who we would put down for a nap and using a baby monitor the adults could still go out to the beach. It was also so nice to be able to sit on the porch in the mornings and watch the children swimming and playing on the beach.

This is a home where everyone had fun. The shallow water was terrific for the kids to catch hermit crabs, to fish and to swim. The grownups went out in the kayaks, learned to use the Yolo board, fished or just relaxed with a drink on the beach or the porch. Everyone played games on the beautifully landscaped lawn right next to the beach. We also enjoyed riding bikes and watching 3D movies in the evenings. And of course, being from New Orleans, we enjoyed preparing some delicious meals in the gourmet kitchen.

Besides the house being fantastic, Stephanie was very welcoming and helpful answering all of our questions. You can tell that she loves this home and that she has planned and provided everything for her guests to have a wonderful time. Thanks, Stephanie. We hope to be back next year for another great family vacation.

A place to relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

We were very satisfied with The Sunshine House ! Of course being at any property with those we love is the very best part.. but honestly, our experience at Sunshine House was really great! If we had any question or problem at all... Tom was extremely prompt in helping us and Stephanie.. the homeowner was more than gracious to help us and get it fixed ASAP!

The location could not have been more perfect for us. It was just minutes from a venue that brought us to the area... and we were SO happy to have our own 'private beach' and not have to fight the beach traffic! The "outside toys" were fantastic and enjoyed by young and old! :)

Being near the small marina and the bridge made it fun to watch boats coming and going. Really loved the location!

Very beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Stephanie, we had an amazing time! It will not only be an amazing memory for our daughter's graduation, but the whole family will never forget it. We all really enjoyed the paddleboard and kayaks. I loved all the special touches the house had to offer and was very well stocked. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

Amazing Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 3 nights and we had an amazing time! The location is quiet but close to the action on Pensacola Beach. The toys in the garage were put to good use by the children. Life jackets in multiple sizes were even provided! Everything was very clean! The only problem we had was the alarm somehow was set off and I did not know how to stop it. This was solved quickly by the owner and the local contact Person. They both have excellent communication skills and are extremely nice! We plan to come back next year and stay the whole week! Thank you!!!
