About Doreen Gilbert/Raybon Gilbert

We moved here in 2000 & love this Beach! Come stay in our home away from home!

Doreen Gilbert/Raybon Gilbert purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Doreen Gilbert/Raybon Gilbert chose North West Florida

Traveling with pets can sometimes make it difficult to find a nice place to stay. This home embraces dog lovers and offers a Florida Pet Room and Dog Run. Sorry...no cats due to allergy sensitivity of guests.

What makes this townhome unique

This home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful oak trees surrounding it. No tree climbing, please......

We enjoy the private patio and completely fenced yard, as we layout and get some sun or sip a cool drink under an umbrella. Many days we bicycle the mere 2 and a half miles to Pensacola Beach or walk the 1 mile to Gulf Breeze Community Center to play some Pickleball or Tennis.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Doreen and Raybon,

Thank you for having such a lovely home we so enjoyed our vacation at the beach because of it. Location was perfect being just a few minutes to the beach but away from the crowds when you are finished being out for the day. Convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, CVS all right close. We enjoyed being able to cook and grill you have everything in the kitchen it's so well stocked. We could all hang out together to watch TV or have our own space to rest and relax. Your hospitality was awesome and we hope to return again next year for our annual vacation at the beach. Thanks again, Missy, Jay and Family.

Wonderful place to stay and close to everthing!

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time going through VRBO as I had been skeptical. I was amazed that it was so easy and the owners were extremely pleasant to work with. They often checked on us throughout the week to make sure we were comfortable and if we had any questions. One thing for sure, the owners kept the house very cool. Many times I felt like I should have brought a sweater! The water is simply amazing and clear, the beaches are clean and white as snow. We loved going out daily and not having to drive far to sight see and find dinning. Our visit to Pensacola was perfect, we loved the area and we plan on returning in the future.

Away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in your quaint home! Even though it's only 10 minutes or so from Pensacola Beach, it allowed peace and quiet for us to relax. The home is perfectly appointed and well kept. We would absolutely recommend it for a family or anyone that wants to enjoy the beautiful gulf coast without the cost and crowds.

Thanks Doreen and Raybon!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our beach vacation so much, Mr. & Mrs. Gilbert have a beautiful home. It is a short drive to the beach, and it's nice to be out of the crowds when you are finish with the beach for the day. We enjoyed cooking and grilling the kitchen is well equipped everything you need to prepare all meals. We had lots of space if we wanted to relax in our own space or all watch TV together in the living room. The location was great close to grocery store, dinning, CVS. We enjoyed going to the stadium to see the Penscola Wahoos baseball team. Thank you for your hospitality and we hope to come to Gulf Breeze again for our annual beach trip. Sincerely, Missy, Jay and Family.

Escape to Gulf Breeze!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Doreen and Raybon for the opportunity to enjoy their lovely home in Gulf Breeze.

We appreciated that they were very accessible if and when there became a need to contact them, and any issues were addressed very promptly and courteously.

I enjoy cooking, and the kitchen was more than sufficiently equipped for anyone's needs! ( loved her fun primary colors, also! :-) It was a pleasure to find clean, updated cookware compared to some other places in past, where it was more like 'castaways'.

The townhome was very clean, in a nice quiet neighbourhood, close to shopping, and within 10 minutes you could be in either Pensacola, or the beach.

We would highly recommend this home for anyone wishing to visit the Pensacola area.

Thank you once again, Doreen and Raybon! :-)
