Overview

About the property

Maximum affordability without compromising location, comfort, or cleanliness!

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. 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!

Girls vacation

My 2 daughters and I truly enjoyed our 3 night stay at this wonderful property. We love historic places to stay at and was well pleased with this historic home. Location was great for our purposes. We felt like we were at home. Tim and Evie were great to work with. Could not have asked for a more wonderful stay. Thanks

Five star cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage in a quiet neighborhood. The beach is 15 minutes away, downtown is within 10 minutes. We stayed for 10 days in April, we kept busy with the beaches, the area's historic sites, state parks, restaurants, national seashore, Navy Air Museum and Blue Angels, a dolphin cruise, antique shops, a great ballpark. All this within an hour or so of the cottage. Very clean with everything provided but the food. McGuire's Irish Pub and New Yorker Deli were great places to eat.

Homey cottage in good location!

  • 5 of 5

We were taking a side trip to Pensacola during our New Orleans vacation and looking for something affordable. Although the beach was about a 20 minute drive, the drive was enjoyable and the price for 2 bedroom accommodation was unbeatable! The house is adorable and nicely furnished. Our kids loved their bedroom. As others have stated, everything you need is in the house. We were especially thankful for the beach towels, beach umbrella, and chairs that made our beach day perfect and kept us from having to pack these items. We wish we would have been able to stay longer and relax in the house a bit more. I highly recommend visiting Ft. Pickens and the beaches near the fort (part of a National Seashore so it's less crowded than Pensacola Beach-but there is an entrance fee-pass is good for 7 days). Also, if the Blue Angels are practicing, GO! It's amazing. Thanks for providing this affordable spot for our vacation!

A little time away

  • 5 of 5

The house is centrally located, great location. The owners have thought of just about everything to make your visit stress free. If you forget something, no worries it's probably here like beach towels.

Sheets are wonderfully soft. Towels fluffy and soft. No hairdryer.

When I come back to visit my daughter I'll be booking here.

Very pleasant, comfortable lodging with personality of midcentury Florida style bungalow. Well furnished for guests with plenty of towels and bathroom supplies if needed and a well supplied kitchen for eating in. Quiet neighborhood with ready access to roads to needed locations.

Cozy home in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a fantastic find for such a reasonable price. They had everything plus more for what we needed. There was a park close for our little kids to play at. Tim and Evie helped answer any questions we had quickly. And they did a great job with maintaining the style and charm of the house. We would definitely come back to this place the next time we are down.

Additional pricing information

Refundable Damage Deposit £77.9
Tax Rate 11.5%

Our philosophy is that all hard working families deserve a vacation without breaking the bank! Our advertised rates have no additional fees, except for the mandatory state tax of 11.5%. *In 2016 This website implemented a traveller "service fee", we feel this to be a very unfortunate move, but it is outside of our control nor do we profit from it. No other hidden fees or charges when booking your stay. We only require the minimal $100 deposit (and this is where vrbo/homeaway adds their unfortunate service fee)to secure the reservation, balance is not due until 7 days prior to arrival. Deposits will be refunded within 7 days after departure.
