About Susan Thibodeaux

I've lived in Northwest Pensacola almost all my life. The area offers a lot of activities to enjoy. This property is very unique, lots of private space and super close to any shopping (3 miles) save on your vacation time and gas. It is very serene and restful.

Susan Thibodeaux purchased this house in 2008

Everything we needed and more

  • 5 of 5

We felt welcome the minute we walked in the door. This home has everything you need. The beds are very comfortable and we all slept very well in such a peaceful, quiet setting. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you should need. There is plenty of seating around the large kitchen island or at the dining table for everyone to enjoy a meal together. The pool and deck are perfect for lounging around and enjoying the Florida weather. The covered porch provided a great place to gather, play cards, and watch the tropical storms pass. The backyard is amazing and we saw deer, chased dragonflies, and the teenagers enjoyed the deck area near the pond - a little getaway area for them. Wi-Fi available and we experienced no problems. We loved our time here. The listing description is accurate however you cannot describe the feelings you experience when you arrive. Wonderful. The property is clean and well-maintained. We highly recommend this property! Susan is a very gracious host and we are very grateful to have been able to stay in her home.

Great Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time, especially the pool. It's location is very convenient to both restaurants and stores. Not far from Pensacola Beach. House is decorated very nice and neat. It is stocked with all kinds of necessities for cooking and cleaning. The back deck has all kinds of pool supplies for kids and adults. Next time we are back in this area we plan to stay again.

I thought I wrote a review already, but I was looking to re-rent this place and saw that I hadn't reviewed my last stay. My husband and I stayed here last year for our honeymoon. It was perfectly secluded. We loved the lake and the pool. We had a few problems with the AC, but that was the only negative. We can't wait to come back and visit soon! We are hoping to stay when the weather is just a little warmer; as we went in October there were a few days it was a little too cold for the pool.

Too dirty and unprofessional to stay over 30 minutes

  • 1 of 5

This has been a horrible experience with VRBO. The owner will not return our security deposit although we did not stay in the house. The side entry door where the key was hidden was filthy. The game room had a pool table and what appeared to be a cabinet for a TV, books, games but it contained a very old TV with old paint cans stacked on and around it. There was a musty smell throughout the house. The refrigerator had partially used containers of food in it. The pantry was over half filled with junk, someone elses food and cans of beer. There were dishes in the dishwasher. There was a rusty, dirty toaster oven on the counter. The pool could have been very nice if it were maintained. The water was cloudy and there was green algea on the bottom of the deep end thick enough it could be swept. There was a broken, crumpled chaise lounge. 2 other chaise lounges were too stained and dirty to sit on. 2 rusty folding chairs were available. A table and chair set was in bad need of paint was on the deck also. The door from the pool to the house was also very dirty. When we reported to the owner that the property was too poorly maintained and dirty for us to stay in, she said we left because of the weather. It was 90 degrees and sunny that day and every day after. Perfect for the pool but being pool owners, we knew the pool could not be made clean enough to use in a short time. There was a bent steel rack on the front porch and a table leaf in the foyer. With all the easily visible lack of care and maintenance, we did not feel we could stay there. The linens may have seen the same neglect. The house appears to be storage for what the owner does not want. We have stayed in rentals for years and have never encountered a problem. The owner disputed the negative reviews that were written but we should have heeded the warning. This is not a place you want to stay in.

Owner's Response: This guest requested a 2 hour early check in, which I gladly accommodated. Guest contacted me the next day and said they did not stay and demanded a full refund which I accommodated also. They told me they strolled the home and took pictures of things they didn't like. I ws shocked when they told me this, I thought it was the weather since forecast was 80% rain the four days they booked. (Game room a bonus with pool table, not even mentioned on VRBO, refrigerator with condiments for next guest, previous guest left 2 cans of food & 3 cans of beer, pool was crystal clear, seating outside for 14 people, 1 chair was broken. The guest apparently ate lunch there and left dirty dishes on the counter and in the dishwasher. Beware of renting to this guest, contact me on info. Thank you, Susan

Great location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Lakefront home was well decorated and very comfortable. We liked the fact that the house was set back far from the road; it made it feel more private and secluded. The saltwater pool was warm and welcoming and the lake behind the house provided good fishing. If we pass through the area again, this will be our go to!
