Location + style + pool = favorite vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually leave reviews for anything, however, this is an exception. Our family of three has loved our time at The Compound! This is our second year staying at this property and what lured us back was the great location near the beach, oysters, a private pool, and an immaculate, stylish interior with all the amenities we need. The hospitality we receive from Caroline and Forrest has made us feel most welcome. When my daughter left a thank you note/drawing and by accident a pillow, Caroline sent a lovely reply plus shipped the pillow to us! This year, my daughter was welcomed with an unexpected gift and we were treated as well! While the property itself is lovely, the graciousness of our hosts makes this location delightful.

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had the BEST time staying at The Compound. The apartment was sparkling clean and the luxury finishes made it truly feel like a special vacation! The pool was the perfect spot to cool off during the really hot days. And watching the boats come and go through the cove was a lot of fun! An extremely short walk to the beach, Peg Leg Pete's ,and the trolley make this apartment absolutely perfect. We will definitely be back!

absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Great sized condo for our family of 3. This was the 2nd summer we stayed at The Compound. Our daughter's favorite thing in the entire condo was the curtains around her bed (hanging from the ceiling). She really wants them at home. Caroline and Brian are wonderful! Would highly recommend this condo to any small family. Access to the beach is directly across the street. Best place to stay on the entire beach.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeff, Thank you and Misty for taking the time to post a review. We hope your property search on the panhandle will be fruitful and that you become part-time panhandlers! Until you get your own beach property; it is always a pleasure to host you at The Compound. Sorry I didn't get a chance to show you Unit 2. Please let me know when your plans include another trip to the panhandle Gulf coast. We appreciate the Ehret family. Caroline

Car: recommended

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.
