About Tim Gleason

This home is a special place for us. Coastal living was ingrained in each of us as children. Morgan spent her summers in Gulf Shores, AL, and Tim grew up on the NJ shore. When we married, we knew we wanted to recreate that experience for our own children and this house has been a dream come true for us. We hope it will be for your family as well!

Tim Gleason purchased this house in 2015

Why Tim Gleason chose Pensacola Beach

This home is a special blend of waterfront settings - with the direct dock access out the backyard and the beach across the street from your front door. It's perfect for the family who enjoys the outdoor lifestyle or a blended family that enjoys both the lazy days on the sand and the excitement of hooking a Bull Red!

What makes this house unique

You truly cannot find but a handful of properties that offer a private boat dock that are situated 25 yards from the beach, and only 50 yards to one of Pensacola Beach's most popular restaurants - Peg Leg Pete's!

Amazing, unforgettable memories

Such a beautiful home. I have rented homes for some time now in the panhandle. Including a 3 million dollar home in Destin. But, this was the best of all.........provided such awesome family memories!

Great location, lovely views, plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location. House sits across the road from a quiet section of the beach. View from the front porch is of sand dunes and the water; no development obstructing the view. A covered back porch overlooks a little boat basin and is a quiet shady place to sit when the afternoon sun chases you away from the beach. House has plenty of beach chairs and various toys including a paddle board, boogie boards, and a wagon for hauling lots of supplies the 30-second walk over to the beach. However, there are no beach towels so bring your own. There is a boat dock behind the house and it’s a short 1-minute walk along the dock to Peg Leg Pete’s for a Shipwreck cocktail and some crab claws or a grouper sandwich.

The wi-fi connection at the house was pretty terrible, but the owner was responsive to our call for service and the problem lay with the service provider and not the owner’s equipment. Be aware that wi-fi may cut out randomly which can get frustrating. Upstairs A/C went out during our visit but again, owner was responsive and had someone out the same day to repair it.

Decor is updated and comfortable. The master bedroom is massive with its own sitting area and TV. The other bedrooms are small, but there are plenty of beds to sleep 10+ people. Only two showers in the house, though, so with a house full of guests the bathroom situation could get cramped. House was extremely clean and provided small starter packs of dish soap, laundry detergent, and toilet paper. If you are staying here a week you will probably want to buy more TP and laundry detergent. Kitchen is roomy with plenty of dishes and utensils. House has no elevator so if mobility on stairs is an issue there will be difficulty getting up to the living areas.

We enjoyed our stay at this house and would recommend it for anyone looking to enjoy a vacation on Pensacola Beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comments! Both A/C units were new last year to avoid this type of issue, but occasionally stuff happens. Generally the internet is rock solid but Mediacom does have its occasional issues. Glad you loved the location so close to the water and the ambiance of our home. Hope to see you next year!

Great location, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed with my family (me, my husband and 2 children), my brother-in-law and his family (wife and 3 children) and my husband's parents. We had plenty of room - we decided to give the master suite (huge!!!) to all the children and they had plenty of room and it was ideal "teen" suite...they played video games, stayed up late, etc. and loved it. The home is comfortable and well equipped. The owners contacted us upon check-in to make sure everything was satisfactory, it certainly was!

The location is insane. A quick and easy walk to the Gulf and a fun canal out back where we used the paddleboards and caught crabs and fish! We walked to PegLegs a few times via the back walkway which was so convenient, which you'll understand if you've ever tried to park at PegLegs! We made use of all the balconies for the views of the water and to watch the Blue Angels.

There are beach chairs and other equipment in the garage - so helpful and convenient. No complaints for this rental home, we had a wonderful time! And the Gulf of Mexico never disappoints!!!

Car: recommended

Entering Pensacola Beach from Gulf Breeze, take a right at the traffic light. Pass the Beach Ball on your left, and the home is 1.7 miles on the right, just past Peg Leg Pete's restaurant.

You won't want to miss out on the fabulous dining at Flounder's Chowder House, Hemingway's, or Peg Leg Pete's while you're here.

It's easy to spend a whole week at the beach, but don't forget to visit Fort Pickens and the Gulf Islands Seashore. Witness this fabulous piece of history and transit through some of the most pristine natural wildlife refuges along the coast to get there!

If you have time, take a mainland tour to the Naval Aviation Museum on board NAS Pensacola and watch a Blue Wahoo's minor league baseball game on the way home! Don't forget to grab dinner on Palafox Street - over 15 Bars and Restaurants in this historic section of Downtown Pensacola ensures there's something for everyone in your party!
