Overview

About the property

Luxurious, elegant, private, beach front, resort—words that describe your vacation getaway home. Beach Colony Resort is just that—a resort complete with all the finest amenities: (2) swimming pools, a heated indoor pool and hot tub, a state of the art exercise room, (2) clay tennis courts. Beach Colony is low density with only 4 condos on each floor. You will love the palm tree lined entrance to your piece of tropical paradise. For added privacy, security codes are required for gate entrance and floor access.

Your condo has a no smoking/no pet policy, sleeps six, with a king in the master, a queen in the second bedroom and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room.

This condo is located in the West Tower on the 13th floor with views of the sunset to the west. It is also larger than most two bedroom units at 1500 sq. ft. with absolutely the biggest balcony you have ever seen. The second you open the door to your vacation home you know you will have a wonderful stay. The ocean blue walls will draw you towards the huge balcony for your spectacular view of the gulf. The view from the living room window has been described 'as like being on a cruise ship'. If you have binoculars you will want to bring them to watch dolphins, beach wildlife, pelicans fly by, etc. This balcony may be your second favorite room. All living area windows and the sliding doors to the balconies have plantation shutters.

The well equipped kitchen with granite countertops also has a bar height table for two with a view towards the north and towards the south. There is a spacious dining room with very comfortable chairs perfect for lingering over an excellent meal or playing games with the family.

There is a pocket door separating the second bedroom and bathroom from the main living area, allowing great privacy for guests in that part of the condo. The bathroom has a single sink and a shower/tub combo with a hair dryer available as well. The TV in the second room is 25”.

The living room has a picture window highlighting the beautiful white sugar sands and sparkling waters of Perdido Key. You will appreciate the 42” flat screen LED TV in the living room and the brightly colored furnishings. Of course wireless internet eliminates the necessity of being tied down in one room.

The master bedroom has a foyer entrance. The room has floor to ceiling sliders which open to the balcony and highlight gorgeous views to the west. The bed is king for a comfortable night’s sleep at day’s end. There is a huge walk in closet that holds a dresser and the TV is 35” large. The master bath has a very large walk-in shower with an installed bench for comfort. You will pamper your senses while soaking in the Jacuzzi tub which overlooks the gulf waters. There are dual sinks with a large mirror and a hair dryer.

Perdido Key, Florida, is surrounded by water, with the Gulf of Mexico on one side, Old River, and the Intracoastal Waterway on the other. Experience one of Florida's finest beaches-- great for walking, shelling and solitude! Beach Colony is on the east end of Perdido Key, next to the entrance of Johnson's Beach State Park and 7 miles of undeveloped marine sanctuary beach. Beach Colony is within walking distance to restaurants, boutique shopping and night life.

If you want a change of pace from the beach, there is lots of exciting nearby attractions. Our favorite is the Naval Aviation Museum with IMAX theatre. Visitors from around the world come to Pensacola to see this exciting U.S. Navy and Marine facility and home of the Blue Angels. Across from the museum is the Pensacola Lighthouse. When the Blue Angels are in town for practice you can climb the steps of the lighthouse to watch them fly right in front of you! Also nearby is Historic Pensacola, the first settlement in America, pre-dating St Augustine by 75 years.

Perdido Key has year-round golf, including Lost Key Golf Club, an Arnold Palmer designed course 1/4 mile away, numerous fishing charters, zoos in both Gulf Shores and Gulf Breeze, shopping in Gulf Shores and downtown Pensacola, and many outstanding restaurants. Don’t forget to go to Pensacola’s #1 attraction, Joe Patti’s Seafood. Here you will find all you need for that perfect gourmet seafood dinner or just plain fresh Florida seafood. Don’t get your number until you have decided what you want—there is a LOT to choose from!

Why Wanda White chose North West Florida

We fell in love with the huge balcony and the jacuzzi tub overlooking the ocean

What makes this condo unique

Beach Colony in Perdido Key has the largest balconies in the area. It is located close to three state parks. It is family oriented and not as crowded as some destinations

Best 2 Bedroom Condo at Beach Colony!

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying at Beach Colony every summer for the past 5 years, and Mr. & Mrs. White have the most well-kept condo that we have experienced. The condo was well stocked, spotless, and very inviting. My wife and I loved the color scheme.

Mr. & Mrs. White were very accommodating, and prompt to our inquiries. We look forward to spending our next getaway in your second home!

Everything was just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in this lovely condo! As a couple, we could do with a smaller condo, but enjoyed the spaciousness of this one as well as the ability to invite guests to stay in their own luxuriously furnished quarters. They enjoyed the sense of being in their own private space because the pocket door separated their bedroom and bath from the living area. We chose Beach Colony because it has a great indoor pool which we can use during our winter stays. We continue to return to this condo because the Whites are so very helpful and excellent owners who make sure that everything is as it should be for us. We appreciate the 'quieter' end of Perdido Key with a bit less traffic than closer to Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. One new adventure for us was the Segway Tour through Orange Beach State Park...we highly recommend this. And of course there are no finer beaches anywhere!

A Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We decided to go to florida for my daughters spring break trip this year. We have stayed at Beach Colony Resorts before and love the Complex. While searching for condos available on the dates we needed, we came across this condo owned by Wanda and Bob. After Emailing the owners and the quick response I received, I knew this was the place we wanted to stay. Wanda went over and beyond in making sure we had everything we needed and even emailed me the day of arrival to tell us the condo was ready hours before check in. The condo was comfortable and well furnished with views that are amazing from Inside and the HUGE balcony. Thanks again to Wanda and Bob for a great vacation.

Second visit to this fabulous condo

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, we are back home as I write this - back at work and resuming our normal lives. Given our preference, we would still be in Perdido Key, walking on the beach and enjoying this condo.

We want to thank Wanda and Bob again for their awesome hospitality. This condo is so very comfortable and enjoyable, and we love the way that they have it decorated. We think the new tile floor is terrific, and enjoyed everything about the place while we were there. The view from the balcony continues to be beautiful and relaxing.

Bed is comfortable. Nice, big, flat-screen TV with a great picture. Comfy furniture. Well-equipped kitchen. Spacious bathrooms. Efficient and effective HVAC.

Our week was lovely and the weather was perfect for our entire stay.

We hope to return again soon.

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well furnished, well equipped condo with fantastic views from within and on the huge balcony. We have vacationed on Perdido Key since 1986, and it is still the same unhurried, laid back area despite the many new condos which we have watched being built over the years. The Beach Colony property is beautifully maintained and condo security is always visible, night and day, without being intrusive. Wanda and Bob are incredibly accomodating owners, and area residents who will ensure your vacation is the best. We will not hesitate to return.

We will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we entered this condo to the time we left 5 (too short) days later, we were impressed! The unit alone is beautiful - the pictures do not do it justice. It is beautifully decorated and spacious and CLEAN! Everything from the floors to the pots and pans was truly clean! The floor plan was perfect for the four of us! Then you open the plantation shutters (found on every window throughout the condo) and WOW - the view is magnificent!! We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening cocktails on the large balcony watching pods of dolphins play and swim along with schools of fish, sea turtles, and even stingrays! I highly recommend this unit and the owners were a delight to work with.

If you aren't sure if Perdido Key is for you - if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing beach vacation, this is the spot! It feels like you are in the Caribbean. We will be back and are already talking about it as a possible retirement destination.

Thank you Wanda and Bob for a wonderful stay!!!
