About the property

4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home Steps to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico!


Enjoy your morning coffee on the front deck while watching the boats in the Sound. Take a walk on the beautiful white sands of the beach. Grill up some local seafood on the covered back patio. Take a stroll to the dock for the amazing sunsets. Hey, you're on vacation! You can do it all!!!

Purple Paradise is located in a private gated community, between the Sound and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico on Pensacola Beach. Our quiet, gated community with sidewalks allows for a safe place for children to play and ride bikes. The community pool is great for the days when the beach is rough. The dock is perfect for loading and unloading your watercraft.

Our home is almost 2000 sq ft of open living area, perfect for family interaction. Purple Paradise features a beach theme with bright, tropical colors. The kitchen is large enough for more than one cook and includes most everything you need for those family meals. The kitchen island screams for platters of goodies.

Comfortably sleep up to 10 people in our 4 bedroom home with 2.5 bathrooms. 3 queen bedrooms. Twin room with 2 twin beds. New queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress in Living area. Pack-n-play

All queen bedrooms have flat screen TVs. 2 with DVD players. Living area has flat screen with DVD player.

Lots of DVD's and music CD's provided

Board games and decks of cards provided


Wifi provided

One of our favorite areas is the covered area out back. Great for cookouts and listening to music. There is also a TV for watching your favorite shows, or listening to the music channels. Gas grill provided.

There are some great restaurant choices on the island. Ride the free trolley (seasonal) to dinner, or to our free Bands on the Beach concerts every Tuesday (seasonal). Cross the bridges and visit downtown Pensacola, or take in a baseball game. Seeing Joe Patti's seafood market is a must. A day trip to the Naval Air Museum makes for a great family outing. Maybe you'll get lucky and see our Blue Angels! Go East via Scenic 98 to see the dolphins, sea lions and such at the Gulfarium. Or, just relax and enjoy the island life.

TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards ranked Pensacola Beach the #7 top beach in the U.S. Come see what the fuss is all about!!!!

About Tanya Kimbrough

We knew we wanted a "beach" home when we built Purple Paradise. After living in our home for 14 years, we made the move to Denver for a job. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we have.

Tanya Kimbrough purchased this house in 2002

Why Tanya Kimbrough chose Pensacola Beach

As a true Floridian, I (Tanya) grew up in the Daytona area. After marrying and living in Pensacola for many years, I and my husband Rob were finally able to live the dream and build a home on beautiful Pensacola Beach. We raised 2 daughters in the Pensacola area and both have known the beach life.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy a glass of wine on the dock while you watch the incredible sunsets. Sit on the covered front deck enjoying the breeze after a day in the sun. Share quality time with family and friends on the covered back patio while grilling fresh fish. You will find so many special touches at our home.

The Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Purple Paradise is beautifully decorated, well maintained and by far the most well equipped vacation home we have rented. The house is stocked with plenty of activities for all ages and we enjoyed almost all during our stay. From strolling through the neighborhood on one of the three bikes, grabbing beach chairs, sand toys and towels from the garage and heading to the beach or bay, to playing one of the many board games, choosing a dvd from the large selection provided or grabbing a book to enjoy on the balcony. The back patio under the house has a large gas grill, table with plenty of seating, a television and music to listen to while enjoying the delightful breeze. The second refrigerator/freezer downstairs came in very handy. The kitchen has place settings for 10, lots of pots, pans, platters, high chair, booster seat and pretty much every small appliance you would need including an ice cream maker! The owners were very accommodating and helpful. We had a wonderful week. The Purple Paradise will now be our annual summer vacation home!

Loved purple paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very bright and cheery. It had everything we needed in the kitchen and so many extras in the garage for the beach. The location was perfect for us. We loved having both the bay and the ocean so easily accessed. The beds were super soft and comfortable. All that and the absolute best part was grilling our dinner in the wonderful set up while the family played bean bag toss. I highly recommend purple paradise.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the beautiful home during our stay. Relaxing on the front balcony after a day at the beach was perfect. The kitchen is excellent for cooking dinners for a large group of people. The TV and sound system provided entertainment to everyone in the room, whether in the living area, cooking in the kitchen, or eating at the table. We never realized how handy having bikes would be until we had access to bikes at the house. The extra fridge downstairs also helps! Highly recommended!

Relax and enjoy the views!

  • 5 of 5

The purple paradise was a wonderful stay!! Enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking a cup of coffee in the mornings while watching the paddle boarders pass by on the sound side. What a relaxing environment staying here. Would highly recommend this house to anyone who's looking for a comforting, refreshing stay on the beach! Loved it!

Fantastic 4th of July 2015!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough positive things about this property and it's amenities... They offer everything under the sun, as if you're living in your own home. From movies, games, kitchen supplies, beach toys, chairs, towels etc... Very clean property with a great location with its own Pier into the Bay, quick access to the beach and conveniently located next to Portofino Resort!

Thanks for a great week!!!

So much to do, so little time. Two bodies of water on either side. The Gulf on one, the Sound on the other for boating. The bike path for some exercise. . Riding the free trolley to the free bands on the beach concerts on Tuesdays, then coming back to the neighborhood for the fireworks. Taking a day to the enjoy the Naval Aviation Museum In Pensacola, then stopping at Joe Patti's Seafood on the way home to pick up something to grill for dinner. Playing all day on the beach boogie boarding, trying your hand at volleyball, or surfing, then heading to Peg Leg's for Oysters on Wednesday or Sidelines on Thursday for wings. You might want to venture further east to the Gulfarium in Destin to watch the marine life perform! Whatever you decide, you won't be bored.
