Outstanding Property in Pensacola Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented The Compound for 3 nights to celebrate our 31st anniversary. My wife and I are particular about the places we stay at and this place exceeded our expectations. The unit is tastefully decorated and up to date with everything a couple could want for a weekend getaway. The owners were great to work with and we could not have been happier with this rental, the setting is perfect with the canal and pool on the backside and the front porch looking straight at the gulf with a completely unobstructed view. You don't mind paying a little extra when an owner goes to such detailed lengths to insure your stay is perfect, thanks again to Caroline and Forrest.

Great condo! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Compound was as great as advertised! Private entrance and a great location! Our 3 young kids loved the private pool and their "own" room/living room! The kitchen was very nice and it had everything we needed. Very convenient location to restaurants, shops and across the street from the beach! We will definitely go back!

Beautifully furnished, clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We are very picky about where we stay. The Compound blew all my expectations out of the water. We truly felt at home there. The location is perfect, and having a kitchen and pool is crucial for a vacation with our boys.

Owner's Response: Hello Amber, Thanks for taking the time to post such a complementary review. It is fulfilling to hear that your family was so happy at The Compound. I pictured your precious boys making a fort on the bed with the drapery panels. and, I surely hope Lady LaRue was well behaved! Thanks again for choosing The Compound. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back for a future stay. Caroline

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful time and throughly enjoyed the Compound. I was amazed at the details of the furnishings. I was also impressed with the decor. I've never been a fan of pastel colors and seashells for decorations at beach properties.

The owners of this property did not cut corners on any detail. They provide dish soap, sponges, trash bags, bath towels, bath soap, linens, even coffee and filters. I never rented a space quite like this.

I will be back next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Kristy, for taking the time to post a review. I'm glad The Compound accommodations suited you and that you both enjoyed your stay. I'm with you on the over-used and tired pastel seashell décor. The Guest Apt was a fun project for me, maximizing space and creating a pleasing aesthetic. Please come again, Caroline

The ideal beach setting includes: Gulf access directly across the street and pool overlooking a picturesque canal off the intracoastal waterway. Located directly behind The Compound is Lafitte Cove Marina with deep water boat slips available as well as charter boat fishing trips. Santa Rosa Island bike path runs directly in front of The Compound, and there is an island trolley service stop a short stroll away. Be our guests and you will be located on Fort Pickens Road which is approximately 9 miles long and leads to the entrance to the National Seashore and historic Fort Pickens. The Compound is also walking distance to an iconic Pensacola Beach 'watering hole' and restaurant, Peg Leg Pete's. Many other restaurants located a short bike, trolley or car drive away.
