About Ellen Schweitzer

Living in Baton Rouge, LA we were presented an opportunity to buy this duplex and as it turns out a couple in Baton Rouge right down the street from us bought the other side of this house. We have two children that love spending time at the beach. Since we cannot spend every day there, we want to share this beautiful house with other people.

Ellen Schweitzer purchased this house in 2012

Why Ellen Schweitzer chose Perdido Key Coves One

We make frequent trips to the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Pensacola area and we usually get one or two water accesses but with this house you get pool, bay, and beach access from one location.

What makes this house unique

With a porch and balcony on the front and back of the house, the view is unlimited. We have made this home comfortable with light decor. Tile and scored concrete throughout the house with carpet in the Master bedroom. The most unique benefit to this house would be all the variety of water access available; pool, bay, and beach in addition to the many close restaurant/bar locations. If it's Blue Angels, the Flora-Bama mullet toss, holiday weekends, or just a summer vacation, there are plenty of attractions between Orange Beach and Pensacola that would entertain the whole family.

This beach house has it all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this Perdido Key beach house. Its proximity to the beach, restaurants, and other local attractions can't be beat. The pool is amazing and very clean. This was a trip we'll never forget! Thanks Ellen!

We couldn't have asked for a better beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Our kids loved the pool and very short walk to the quite beach. Beach wasn't crowded at all. It was like we had a private beach all to ourselves. We had a problem with the AC Ellen and her husband had someone out within the hour to fix it. I've stayed in the area for years now and this was by far the best stay for our family. We will be coming back to stay again.

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and very comfortable. We ended up with 6 People so everyone had a bed . We found the beach walk not bad, just crossing the street was interesting. We found a beach down the road at a bridge that was shallow water and small waves. the swimming pool was just right for the grand kids and they spent most of their time in it. I would recommend this house to other people.

Great Location and Great Duplex

  • 5 of 5

The owner is really easy to work with. Her duplex is really nice and clean. The pool and boat dock on site is really nice. The walk to the boardwalk was not far at all. Overall my family and I loved this location and duplex. Thank you for making our vacation special.

Awesome place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! Across the street from the beach and on the bay where we were able to park our Seadoo's to use during our stay. The private pool made it extremely nice. Very clean unit with plenty of space and parking. We will rent this unit again.

Fantastic - Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. We made a quick trip from Houston to Pensacola to visit our son for Christmas. He is in a training program in Pensacola. The home was very spacious, very well equipped and we loved the balconies in front in back. Morning coffee on the deck, enjoying reading in the afternoon with the sound of the gulf nearby. There is a small water view of the Gulf, but the view of the canal is great. I can only imagine how wonderful it is in the summer. We were not able to use the pool, it was too cold, be we could certainly enjoyed view. The owner was wonderful, very accommodating. We had everything we needed while we were there. If this had been an extended visit, we would not have lacked cooking utensils, plenty of pots and pans available. I can see that it would be perfect for a week or more family vacation. The beach is across the street has very convenient access and there is an outdoor shower to rinse off when you return from the beach. Unfortunately, it was the wrong time of year to take advantage, but I can see where it would be wonderful in the summer.

There were four of us and of course we fit quite comfortably. But there is definitely room for more. The dining room table would easily seat 8. There was a large TV in the great room and smaller TV's in the bedrooms. The sky view at night was fantastic. We were able to see so many stars. The area is mostly quiet. There was some traffic noise from the highway, but it wasn't overwhelming. Everything was convenient. We tried a pizza place down the road. We were not able to try other local restaurants, due to the holiday, but there were several in the vicinty.

I highly recommend this property. Working with the owners was great. My only regret is that we were only there for 3 days, not 3 weeks.
