The house was GREAT!!! The owners make you feel at home with all the accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Pensacola for week for work. I'm not a big fan of staying at a hotel for a week so we looked into renting a house. The house was significantly cheaper than booking 3 hotel rooms for a week and was a lot more enjoyable too!

The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, a fully functional kitchen and a game room. Not to mention a gas grill, a hot tub and hoarse shoe and sits 100 yards from the water.

There is a grocery store a couple of blocks away and a Walmart about a mike away. This made it very convientent to pick up grocery's and do our own cooking. We even picked up steaks and cooked them on the grill!

After work we made dinner and relaxed either sitting on the water front / dock or hanging out in the hot tub or playing games. Boredom is NOT an issue.

I highly recommend this place if staying for a week in lieu of a hotel as not only is it cheaper but a lot more like home. The owners take great care of the property, spare no expense in maintenance and are flexible with arrivals / departure times.

We look forward to staying here again when we come back in town!

Top Gun! !

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! We named it Top Gun home since the name above the front door says, Pete Mitchell, which was Maverick's name in the movie, Top Gun! Pete Mitchell was the owner's father. Amazing Home, wonderful facilities, great condition, superb owners. Highly recommended! !

Owner's Response: My father who built the house in the 1950's was a civilian that worked at NAS Pensacola and retired as head of overhaul and repair in the 1970's He built his dream house on the Bayou just 5 mins from the front gate of NAS. We are so happy to hear that you loved the "Top Gun" house, Pelican's Perch, for the retirement get together of friends and family of a retiring commanding officer at NAS. I understand some of you were class mates at the US Naval Academy many years ago.

Beautiful home on the bay, fabulous backyard and plenty of room for the family

  • 5 of 5

We came to Pensacola for our grandson's wedding in October. This home was absolutely perfect for our entire family. We actually had the rehearsal dinner in the backyard and it could not have been a more perfect and beautiful venue to begin our celebration. The pictures were spot on and the home was very comfortable and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again and refer our family and friends.

Thank you Margaret for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Owner's Response: October is a beautiful time of the year for weddings in Pensacola. It is bright and sunny and very pleasant that time of year. Having your small rehearsal dinner on the back deck in the evening was lovely, I'm sure. We look forward to having you come again.

Perfect Stay great owners

  • 5 of 5

From the time we stepped into this house I was amazed, the house was build back in the 50's by Margaret's dad and the they have redone and upgraded the house but left the knotty pine paneling which pays tribute to the man that built it, the owners of this house have made this a very perfect place for a family, the dock was perfect for fishing and enjoying the beautiful view, I got so much rest on this trip I did not want to leave and I am trying to figure out how quick I can get back. To the owners I want to say thank you, you go all out to make the guest that stay in your house feel welcome, I was a pleasure to get to meet you.

Much More Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

Margaret was very helpful. The house was perfect with lots to do or just sit back and relax. The kitchen is huge and very well stocked but there is also a great outdoor cooking space with a big gas grill. Bed was comfy and TVs in every room. I would definitely stay there again

Owner's Response: I know after a long hard day working as divers to map out all the cables and structures around the three mile bridge that is being replaced you enjoyed having lots of things to do in the game room, dock, deck, etc. It is nice to have a home to enjoy when you are away from home for extended periods on diving jobs. Glad to hear you enjoyed Pelican's Perch.

The property is just 1/2 mile outside the main gate of Pensacola's Naval Air Station, NAS, and 2 miles from Corry Station. Attractions include the Naval Air Museum at NAS Pensacola (which has free admission),the lighthouse and Fort Barrancas ruins and museum. We are about 20 minutes drive from two beautiful beaches; Pensacola Beach to the East and Perdido Key Beach to the West.

This property has the unique feature of a private boat dock on Bayou Davenport which provides direct unobstructed access to the 'cut' which leads to the Gulf of Mexico. You can reach the Gulf by boat in about 20 minutes, which is very quick compared to almost all other areas! Launch your boat at a public ramp about 1/2 mile from house.

Bring your boat or rent a boat at a nearby marina and enjoy the best fishing, tubing, skiing and fun Pensacola has to offer from your own Vacation Rental, Pelican's Perch.
