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

Maximum affordability without compromising location, comfort, or cleanliness!

We refuse to compromise our idea of an affordable, accommodation to capitalize on a greater profit margin. We are blessed by our calendar booking out months in advance and feel this is a reflection of the hard work and vision that goes into the cottage, not to mention the amazing value and flexibility. A great big Thank you to all of our previous and future guests, we love what we do and hope that we are able to continue this adventure for many years to come! On with the description!!!

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!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in the cottage. It will close to a lot of various attractions but away from the hectic buzz of city life. We were able to store food items, watch videos, connect to the internet, and not feel cramped.

Incredible value for superb amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was exactly what my wife and I wanted and needed for our beach vacation. From the moment we pulled in, we felt right at home. The house is clean, well furnished, well decorated, and on the back porch you will find almost every beach item you forgot to bring but will end up needing :-)

The amenities are perfect. We enjoyed coffee on the porch swing, grilling out back, cooking in the kitchen, ice cream and movies on the couch - everything was exactly as it needed to be.

To future guests: we did some research on the washing machine and learned from the manual that to use fabric softener a Downy ball is required. We've added one to the collection of goodies on the shelf - just toss it in with your load and flip the switch.
