Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Southeast Pensacola - Lee St

2 Bedroom 1 Bath

Enjoy all that Pensacola has to offer from this traditional 1930's NW Florida cottage centrally located in the fantastic neighborhood of East Pensacola Heights only 3.5 miles to Downtown/ Palafox Pier, 4 miles to Pensacola International Airport, 7.7 miles to Pensacola Beach and 8.7 miles to NAS Pensacola. This two bedroom/one bath cottage is for the guest that desires and appreciates a true, 1930's Pensacola cottage which showcases the original heart pine flooring, tongue and groove ceilings and wainscoting, yet through a tedious 2009 renovation, has all the expected modern conveniences such as granite countertops, dishwasher, enhanced fixtures and central heating and air conditioning. Extreme care was taken to preserve original architectural characteristics while enhancing the livability and comfort of the home. The floor plan provides maximum space utilization with an open living to dining room and the fantastic period ‘Jack and Jill’ bath is conveniently accessible from either bedroom. The “Florida” room off of the kitchen holds the full size washer and dryer as well as storage for beach toys, and other convenience items. Arguably the best part of the home is the inviting front porch swing; day or night, what better way to watch the world pass by! While this home can sleep up to four, it is primarily intended for a couple or small family get-away. The home is located 2.5 blocks from a city park with full playground, baseball fields etc., 4 blocks to an amazing family owned deli/grocery store (Apple Market), 6 blocks to a stretch of U.S Hwy 90 known as "Scenic Highway" that has a multitude of great family owned restaurants. With certainty, and as guest reviews attest, we believe this is the perfect accommodation for those interested in venturing from traditional lodging options while refusing to compromise high standards of safety, cleanliness and comfort. Our guests receive the best value of any place in town. One flat nightly rate (all year long), 2 night minimum stay, no cleaning fee (yet cleaned impeccably after each stay), balance due only 7 days prior to arrival (most others are due at booking or 30 days out)and because we know life can abruptly change the best made plans, we remain extremely flexible to all cancellation requests. We hope you choose this 100% truly owner operated labor of love to be the basecamp in your Pensacola travels while making memories that last a lifetime. – Tim & Evie

About Tim and Evie Thoner

Our house has been a pleasurable pastime...our labor of love. We fancy the idea of devoting our passion into a home with character and 'good bones' by bringing it back to life. For us, it is fulfilling to take part in beautifying a neighborhood one house at a time. It is just another way for our family to be productive members of society.

Tim and Evie Thoner purchased this house in 2009

Why Tim and Evie Thoner chose Pensacola

We LOVE the location. East Pensacola Heights is a gem, situated on a peninsula with Escambia bay to the South and East and Bayou Texar to the West. This neighborhood is convenient to the beach, downtown, the mall, airport and has many of it's own restaurants and even an amazing 'old time' grocery store just 4 blocks away. Homes in East Pensacola Heights vary from the early 1900's to new construction happening on vacant lots today! The area has maintained as a clean, safe, working class neighborhood for over 100 years and that truly has something to be said for it.

What makes this house unique

From this location, you can explore Pensacola and the surrounding area easily and efficiently. There is a locals favorite deli/market (Apple Market) with full service espresso/Coffee bar 3-4 blocks away. Public park with water access (suitable for kayak/ paddle board) 2 blocks away, park with baseball field and children's playground 2 blocks away. Marina and Public boat ramp very close. Many Fantastic restaurant's within 1/2 mile. And of coarse the worlds most beautiful beaches 10-15 min away!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Tim & Evie,

We had such an amazing week! We really appreciate your allowing us to stay in your adorable home. Your recommendations for children were wonderful! The kids had a BLAST at Cowboy Park, and we loved the fish tacos at The Oar House! Our 4-year-old wants to live here forever! Thank you so much for your hospitality, generosity, and kindness! We look forward to returning!

Happy with our stay

  • 5 of 5

Cute, comfortable, quiet, clean house. Gas stations, mall, grocery stores within 10 minutes. Beach within 20 minutes. We even went to Peridido Key and Orange Beach within 45 minutes. They really have everything you'd need but one thing I thought was the cookware utensils (cooking spoon/fork) was not sufficient for me (they were too bendy) making cooking a little challenging but doable.

Cute, easy to find, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to discover that this vintage little house was nearly identical to our 1930's bungalow back home so, for us- that just added to the appeal & comfort factor. Don't despair if you normally reside in an apartment or a McMansion- anyone would be comfortable here! We walked in to spotless conditions, a floral centerpiece and welcome card on the table, fully stocked kitchen & plenty of extras for those rainy Florida days: games, magazines & DVD's in the tv console!

My husband was THRILLED that the grill & charcoal were included as well. Neighborhood is quiet but folks were friendly if we encountered them on one of our daily walks to the apple market. The cottage is a short drove to beaches, Gulf Islands Seashore, Ft Pickens, & downtown PCola the main reasons we choose to vacation here. I am writing this from our inlaws place in Destin - hey, if you're into crowds, cheesy Florida-isms, wasting money & rampant consumerism & tourists- come to Destin. If you want to invest in a HOME & have a truly unique & RELAXING experience: book this place and chill on Tim & Evie's porchswing with a glass of Rose'. From the journal left by all former rentals in the cottage- I can tell that I am not alone in these sentiments. Best money we ever spent! My only regret in writing this is that the secret is out & I will need to book next year's trip even earlier! The grumpiest person alive could not escape the charm of this place! As an elementary school teacher, I do not wish to be overstimulated by weekly Mardi Gras parades, jet ski's, loud noise, or hordes of children during the summer- I NEEDED the respite & healing power of order & silence, privacy & home-like setting that Tim & Evie provided for my well earned vacation. Book it- you won't regret it!!! Five stars- hands down!!

Cute, cozy cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place so much we ended up spending a lot of time there! Clean, modern, comfortable. Even came with beach stuff to borrow! About 20 min from Pensacola Beach, quiet neighborhood.
