Clean, Quiet , very accommodating.....

  • 5 of 5

We stay 8 nights and had the best time ever. My husband and i took the first part for ourselves & then the children and grand kid came down and it was roomy and most of all we loved that we could watch the sunrise and sunset from the back deck .....we saw dolphins , shark ..star fish ...also very closed to Santa Rosa inland. One of our favorite places in the world. .....but most of all they are pet friendly and we coyld bring our whole family ...even our grand dog .....i would give it 5 stars and will be back soon ......

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every corner of this place , the water was great and the temperature was too. We took a jet ski and kayaks and had the time of our life. The owner was extremely generous and very attentive. We hope to be back next year. Recommended for all ages.

Our first vacation using VRBO

  • 5 of 5

We can only say great things about this vacation! This was our first time using VRBO, and I have to say, everything was exactly as described or even better. The pics posted do not do this setting any justice. The views alone of the bay are breathtaking, that's something no picture can convey. This place was perfect for our family. My husband spent a lot of time fishing off the dock, our girls (14 & 21) were able to walk back and forth to the beach several times a day. Due to its location, we were able to prepare meals at the house, which saved us a lot of money, and it made it so convenient. The kitchen has all Maytag stainless appliances. It is fully equipped, I cooked everyday for a week and it had everything we needed. The bedding and linens were all clean and comfortable. We absolutely cannot say enough good things about the owner Vern, who lives right next door. He went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and was always available for anything we may have needed. I loved the location, we were far enough away from the tourist section for peace and quiet, but close enough to enjoy everything Pensacola Beach has to offer. We went parasailing, took a dolphin cruise, went to the zoo, went to Gulfarium near Destin (worth the drive), visited the Navarre Beach area, walked the pier, swam, fished, and went to several great restaraunts. Our favorites were Flounders, Peg Leg Petes, Oar House and The Tin Cow. We came home exhausted, yet refreshed! We will definitely be returning!

spring break 2016

  • 5 of 5

my husband and i travel to Pensacola to watch my friends daughter play softball on spring break. This year we picked this place cuz it looked peaceful. Boy was it peaceful. also dogs were accepted and that is very important to us. it is located on a cuddle sac on the bay. it had two king bedrooms that were very comfortable. the master had a small deck so in the morning you could go right out and sit and enjoy the mornings. at night you could hear the waves that made it easy to fall asleep to. the area by the water was very nice. i could leave my chairs and tanning gear there overnight because of the private beach area. next time we will bring fishing poles because we saw a lot of fish near the dock. it was about 3 miles from the middle of town. far enough for peace but close enough that you don't miss anything.

the owners were great! Vern was always there if we needed him but other then that we didn't see him. which i was wondering how that would work since they lived next door. they really respected their guest.

we will be back but next time with more of our family. Great spot for grandkids... play in the sand then swim. also if we get bored the beach is right across the street.

Comfortable welcoming home with a breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

January 3, 2016. Just returned from a wonderful week in Pensacola Beach. (There were four of us). The house was comfortable and well equipped. It was very clean and had everything we needed to make for a pleasant stay. The setting on the bay is beautiful. We rented paddle boards for the week (which were delivered) and easily launched them off the dock right into the bay. (The Gulf is across the road and a five minute walk, at the most).

Vern, the owner is so kind and friendly and made sure we were comfortable. Our dogs were welcome and it was important to us to find a place that accepted pets. It was easy to walk them in the neighborhood and on the path along the main road. A dog friendly beach is also nearby.

I highly recommend staying here and hope to return in the future.

Fantastic Home-Away-From-Home RIGHT on the Water!!! Dog owners, boaters, and fishermen must see!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this property was an absolute delight! Check-in was easy, even though we showed up after hours. The property is RIGHT on the water; with an upstairs and downstairs deck overlooking the water and facing the sunrise/sunset, relaxing in the mornings and evenings is taken to the next level. Also included as a good-size pier and dock, so we could walk out and fish at any time or just enjoy the sunset. The dock was perfect for us to tie off our boat, allowing us to walk right outside and be fishing in no time! No hunting down boat ramps everyday or paying fees... Drop the boat in at the nearest boat ramp, motor over and have it in the water for your entire stay. You're also right across the street from the Gulf-side beach, so you're never more than a five-minute walk away from some beach-side lounging. Low tide depth at the deck during August was ~3', so most any boat will have no problems. What was also neat was the wildlife visible in the sound from the dock; mornings and evenings, we could sit and watch dolphins, stingrays, etc. coming around and near the dock.

The house was well-equipped with anything you would need for a week-long vacation. There is a decent propane grill downstairs under the stairway for grilling your day's catch, and the house is elevated, so you have a large sheltered area with sand and tables/chairs to lounge around the grill, have a beer, and relax by the water. The house has two bedrooms and a foldout-sofa, so sleeping 6 is no problem. It is just a few miles away from the bridge, shops, and restaurants, so you're just far enough away to have peace and quiet, but close enough to ride a bike into town if you want. It is located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential area, and there is ample fenced, secluded parking area out front.

If you have a dog, this is the place to be. It is a dog-friendly property, plenty of areas to walk your furry friends, and just a few miles down the island is a great dog park on the gulf's beach to let them get salty. You are also very close to the National Seashore and Fort Pickens. The property owner was extremely nice and accommodating, and made it clear he was available if there were any issues he could help with.

All in all, if you are looking for a home to relax in while you soak up absolutely everything Pensacola has to offer, this is the place to be. We had nothing negative to report from our stay, and will definitely be staying here again in the future.
