I call this ' Parrot Paradise' because of the large ,awesome cool Parrot that's the good luck mascot there to greet you on the balcony. This brand new motivated owner has really left nothing untouched in the way of making you feel at home in a tastefully decorated ,beach bungalow . Very comfortable and inviting with no detail left undone ! This is a cut above the rest at a Villas on the Gulf ! 2 bedroom ,1.5 bath,950 sq. feet.,pullout sofa bed in the living room.

There is a private balcony and the beach walkover is only yards away. This is approximately 1 mile from the core of the beach where all the restaurants,shopping and bars are. In the summer season there are free beach trolleys. Even comes with a pack and play if you have young kids !

This comfortably decorated unit will provide you with all the amenities of home.

About: About the owner: I am not the owner of this property,I work for the owner who is also a local Pensacola local and I live in Gulf Breeze ,5 minutes from Pensacola Beach .This place was just purchased in 2015 but I have been renting this from the previous owners for a few years now. With a new owner comes change and this place is getting a whole new remodel...it's one step at a time but it is a work in progress. The major remodel was the kitchen in January of 2016 but now the owner is going to kick it up a notch in the whole place. New bathroom vanity,new paint,remodeling the second bedroom knocking out the closet to make room for a double bed,so much new stuff....it's going to be a 5 star property for the Villas ! The new owner is a interior decorator so this place is going to be better and better as time allows...have you heard of the saying the best is yet to come that's the way it is with this place. It will have all complete by Feb of 2016 .Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about this area, fun things to do ,must see places and good eating !

Best time to reach me is in the morning.

Mary Bedard -reservations purchased this condo in 2015

Why Mary Bedard -reservations chose North West Florida

Villas on the Gulf is a very nice affordable rental it's not Gulf Front it is what is called Gulf Side. No you can't open the windows to your bedroom and see the Gulf of Mexico you have to add on about an extra hundred dollars a night for that privilege but for the location and the price ,awesome pool,this remains one of the most highly booked condominiums during the spring ,summer ,and fall. It is literally a three minute walk to the beach less than a mile to the court area with restaurants and bars are it is a perfect vacation spot for a couple or family.

What makes this condo unique

3 min walk to the Gulf of Mexico and 3 min walk to the pool ! Great location it's not Gulf front but it's also not gulf front priced !

This unit is close to the beach and in great shape. Mary Bedard helped us find this place and she is wonderful to deal with. We have booked with her twice and will certainly do so again.

Perfect place for family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villas on the Gulf last year and loved the "Our Happy Place" unit so much we decided to return, but it wasn't available during our travel dates this year. (The very kind owners had even extended a return stay discount, which was very nice!) I contacted the property manager, Mary, and she offered several other options right away. We chose Parrot Paradise and were glad we did! It was even closer to the beach than last year's unit, which wasn't far from the beach either, but this was an even shorter walk for my older parents to manage. Mary was once again absolutely wonderful to work with - very responsive to all our questions & needs. She let me know that the unit was ready for our arrival a couple hours early, which was very helpful as we were tired from the long drive. The unit was very clean, obviously recently updated & very nicely decorated in a cute whimsical beach theme. The bedroom set up was perfect for 2 couples & 2 teen kids with the king, double & bunk beds. The mattresses were comfy, linens were very nice & plenty of towels, including beach towels, were provided. It was so convenient to have a nice washer/dryer in the unit as well! The owners left local attraction brochures & even thoughtfully left a nice basket of travel toiletries in case we had forgotten anything! The kitchen was very well stocked, there were even a few basic spices, cooking oil & K cups provided for Keurig, which was perfect as we planned to cook more than go out to eat this year (several grocery options available on Gulf Breeze, very short drive away)! Only missing a veggie peeler & the knives were a bit dull, but otherwise fit our needs very well. The wifi worked great. We appreciated the 2 beach chairs & umbrellas, as well as sand toys available! The section of beach at Villas on the Gulf was so clean and not crowded at all (we were there after Labor Day). We spent all day every day there: the kids caught blue crabs, we saw a plethora of fish/rays while snorkeling & found plenty of shells. The pool was a short walk as well, very well kept complex. I do wish it had recycling bins on site, but we just dropped our recycling off in town on our way out. All in all we agreed it was our BEST beach vacation yet! We would not hesitate to work with Mary or book this unit again! Thanks again to Mary & Parrot Paradise owners for a fabulous vacation rental!!! Well done! :)

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

7 of us stayed for a week and it was very comfortable. We just walked in with our groceries and didn't have to worry about anything. Very nicely decorated. Peaceful and about a 2 minute walk to the beach. We will definitely be back next year. Mary was wonderful and answered all the questions I had. I'd definitely recommend this condo!

We have a three-week cancellation policy that means there is no penalty if you should cancel prior to three weeks of your reservation ,in the three week time span however if you should cancel you do not get your $300 back unless I should rerent it for the exact same timeframe and exact same amount of money. Believe me if you start looking around most places are 90 days out not 21 days . This is a fair cancellation policy.

Manager's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the manager or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
