Magical Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

You won't find a better family or friend vacation home. It is truly a home away from home. The large, airy porch is where we gathered every morning and evening, sometimes with books and sometimes with wine. It looks directly onto the lagoon, where you can swim in the morning light, kayak every day, night fish, and watch the dolphins play. A beautiful wooden swing at the edge of the property, on the water, is just right for counting stars.

In front of the house, the lagoon is perfect swimming for children, and the near-deserted National Seashore beach with sky-blue water is just a boat or kayak ride across the lagoon (or a few minutes by car). There's a mooring buoy in front of the house, and the mouth of Pensacola Bay is just down the coast, where the gorgeous Gulf waters meet the lagoon and offer refreshing, brisk swimming.

The house is decorated beautifully and comfortably. It reminds me a little of a large, Norwegian summer cabin, the perfect place to gather, get away, relax, and do outdoor activities.

A few tips: Joe Patti's is a must-visit (for fresh seafood and beignets), and downtown Pensacola has live music, good coffee, and a whiskey bar for the adults. If you have time, New Orleans is only a few hours away by car, but I imagine that many would just as soon never leave the porch of Bill's Place.

Thank you for a magical vacation. I can't wait to come back next summer.

Great home for big family

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a big family. Having 3 bathrooms was very convenient. Only thing I would recommend improving is better beds and needs king in master bedroom.

We loved our stay! We're repeat visitors and all was lovely as usual. I spent much time on the swing out by the water this year and love relaxing on the porch. Such a fabulous view. Thank you.
