A nice, basic cottage in a central location

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in a variety of vacation rentals and we run one ourselves. This is a nice, basic shotgun cottage in a good central location in Pensacola. It is easy driving distance to the beach and near downtown. The place was tidy and well-maintained. The owners were very good at communication and organized. The interior is cute and it is fun to stay in an historic cottage. The back yard looks lovely and like a great place to hang out in the summer. The downsides to this rental are as follows: the accordion doors are cheap looking and don't block sound (I would rather have the old funky doors), the mattress in one of the bedrooms is really creaky and soft (it bothered my back), and the owners don't provide any amenities (no bath soap, no shampoo, no coffee, etc.). Attention to some of these small details would raise the cottage by a full star.

Great Location...Very Clean...Well Stocked

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our last minute weekend getaway to visit family in Pensacola. It was very clean and well stocked for our stay. Deborah was very helpful and had a very fast response to our inquiry. I was able to inquire about the property and book the same day I arrived. The location was perfect...close to downtown and minutes from the beach. We loved this place and look forward to staying again in the future.

Sweet House

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two nights to celebrate Thanksgiving with our son. It was a perfect location because of the comfy homey set up. We brought everything to cook our meal but quickly realized we shouldn't have. The house was perfectly stocked with everything we might have needed . So thoughtful! I loved using the gas stove. The bathroom was large enough to be comfortable and we loved sitting out back on the private back porch. Make sure you read the helpful book because it gives all the details. Our only issue was with the mattresses. Both our backs were sore and we will likely bring our own pillows the next time. Otherwise, we highly recommend this very charming location.

Nice place, but lack of doors makes privacy difficult

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a good stay, and it was a nice place. However, like all VRBO's, there is a quirk or two. At this place, the quirk is the lack of interior doors.

All the bedroom doors have been replaced with folding "accordion" style doors. The end result is that there is very little privacy with respect to noise. You can easily hear what is going on in every other room in the house. Just something to keep in mind if you want a place with private rooms.

Otherwise, it was a great place!
