Picturesque wedding!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the most accommodating house we have stayed in yet!! We only had to buy groceries and we were set. The house was perfect for our family wedding. The huge master suite made for a perfect place for the bridesmaids to get ready together while others set up the reception area on the screened in porch. The walkway from the porch to the beach was the perfect scene for our little bride and her wedding party to make their way to the beach. Our view was breathtaking, as will be the pictures I am sure. Thank you Bamboo Beach House!!! Best Day Ever!!

A great house. Really loved that it felt like an old Florida home.

  • 5 of 5

A really great house. And our host Andrea was the best-felt like an old friend even before we left home before our vacation. It has a walkway down to beach-although house is very close to beach-but with carrying all our beach stuff down it was great. Suited for all ages.Had a pac-n-play in closet-along with laundry holders and a fan plus many extra extra sheets ,towels, paper towels,toilet paper and cleaning supplies. I've never had that before in a rental.

And if you love seashells like I do,you'll be in heaven. Not only at the beach but house is decorated with lots of shells.

There is something for everyone at this house-games, tvs. movies,even beach toys for the kids along with the cutest basket on back deck full of flip-flops!

OH, and the best. a swing on the back deck!

I could go on and on about but maybe you'll just want to check it out yourself!

Thank you Andrea for taking such good care of this beautiful house for our wonderful vacation. couldn't ask for anything more!

Williams,Acre, Gardner and Watley Thank you!

Amazing house and view!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay!! There were 6 adults and 5 kids. It fit us all perfectly with room to spare!! The house and the view were perfect!! Loved that the house has its OWN private walkway to the beach! It felt like we were right on top of the beach! Screened in porch and open top deck were awesome! The house was stocked with pretty much everything you need! We will definitely be returning!! This is the perfect beach house!! 💙🌺🌴☀️🏖🌊🙌🏼

Could not have been happier.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 5 and 2 grandparents in the rental for a week. It was perfect. The well-kept house sleeps 8 adults in beds if you use both twins (the day bed and trundle) upstairs. You could do 9 if there are younger children, as 2 of them could sleep on the standard bed in the kids room (there is a twin in there too, so 3 kids in that room). The master is huge and has a king. We did not explore the couches to see if any of them were sleepers. The mattresses were comfortable, and therefore no one was sleep-deprived and grumpy. There are 2 full bathrooms and a half-bath upstairs in the "Penthouse." When it was the hottest during the day, we played board/card games in the living room that has glass doors facing the beach. We had happy hour upstairs on the balcony as the sun set--there is a wet bar up there as well. The balconies were well placed and the screened-in porch was worth every penny we paid. Over the years, I have stayed in 4 different homes on Areola, all with the beach at the back door. This one is my favorite. It has everything you could need-- in the kitchen, the baths, and on the back porch. There are flip-flops in basket on the porch in several sizes. There are floats and sand-castle equipment for the kids. There are tons of beach towels. I truly felt like someone had shared their home with me, rather than being in a rental house. The furnishings are not modern, but they are not worn, and the pictures on the site do not do it justice. It is "beachy" without clutter and with tasteful decorations. I prefer it to the highly-renovated look. Check in and out were simple, without pages of rules to wade through. I felt trusted to care for a home, and that made all the difference in the feel of the vacation. Thank You! We will be back.

Bamboo House Pensacola Beach

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location. This is a prime location, along a gorgeous stretch of pure white quartz beach. The enormous master suite with king size bed has it's own bath/decking, with adjacent community decking that has a screen AND covering above for storm watching! Another unique and amazing feature is the upper "crow's nest" (although your more apt to see a flock of pelicans) above the lower deck, that is prime location for watching surfers, dolphins and general enjoyment of the "location"! This upper area also has a bar, 1/2 bath and potential additional sleeping quarters for a 4th bedroom (twin bed). There is a queen in a lower bedroom, and another adj with a double and twin, perfect for 2 couples with kids!. These bedrooms share a full bath.

Ample restaurants and the contact person was available and helpful with recommendations for activities! Highly recommend. Clean and ample amenities/ beach toys, etc! I did recommend a new bbq, and think they will comply! Swing on the lower deck was heavenly! Buy groceries ahead of time in Pensacola, as I could only find 7/11 type convenience stores in the area.
