About the property

Modern Cottage in Historic East Hill

Tucked away in a shady backyard, our 600 square foot cottage is located in one of Pensacola's oldest neighborhoods with quaint homes and lots of parks. (bring your running shoes) It is conveniently located to the airport (5 miles), downtown Pensacola (3 miles), and our beautiful white sand beaches (8 miles). A new Publix grocery store just opened three blocks away!

Our cottage has a full size kitchen but the best pizza place in Pensacola is within walking distance. It has a queen size bed and large bathroom.

***Summer traffic to the beach and parking on the island can be problematic. To avoid these issues, we get to the beach early (before 9:00).

About Carolyn Kinne

Ray and I downsized and moved to the East Hill in 2000 and love the convenience and charm of this neighborhood.

Why Carolyn Kinne chose Pensacola

Note the word downsize. I love our 1921 Craftsman bungalow but the house is small-especially when family comes to visit. We downsized a bit too much so we built the small cottage in the background for overflow company. This has worked out well since they get their privacy and we have a retreat from the grandkids.

Perfect Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

This location stay was great! It was a smaller house behind the main house in a quaint & quiet neighborhood area a few minutes drive east of downtown Pensacola. We really enjoyed being away from the touristy areas one usually encounters in being near beach areas. Carolyn & Ray Kinne were gracious hosts and made us feel very welcome, as if we've known them for a long time. They also graciously offered us use of beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach cooler, and even bikes if we wanted. The house had all the amenities of being at home and was a welcome departure from staying in a hotel with all the usual noise and congestion. A close-by local Publix grocery store made it great for getting groceries to save money on always eating out. It was relaxing and in a great location for taking day trips around the Pensacola area. Again, a perfect stay and we'd highly recommend anyone to consider this location for a visit to Pensacola.

Enjoyed the second time as much as the first time

  • 5 of 5

We were here for the second time and nothing has changed. The house is ideal for two, extremely well kept and equipped, and very tasteful. It is situated in the back of the owners' beautiful garden. You can sit outside on the little porch and have a bbq. Easthill is one of the best neighborhoods in Pensacola and close to everything. We will come back.

A gem in the middle of lovely East Hill

  • 5 of 5

This well thought-out and sensibly appointed unit is a fantastic rental. The owners have done a wonderful job a creating a city haven in their backyard with easy access to downtown Pensacola.

The bed is very comfortable and this unit was the perfect size for two of us over a quick weekend.

Additionally, a Publix grocery store is a very short 9 minute walk away and a fully furnished kitchen allows you to make your own meals if you have any dietary restrictions or are just keeping an eye on the budget.

If you're looking for a comfortable base for your Pensacloa vacation, consider this rental; you'll be happy you did.

Beautiful cottage with peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Ray, met us as we arrived at the cottage. He showed us all about the property and told us if we needed anything just ask. He told us what going on the days we were there and upcoming events and places to eat. Ray and his wife Caroline were great host, the friendliest we have ever had in renting a place.

The cottage was very clean and has more room than the photo's show. It had everything you need and if it doesn't then Ray or Caroline will get it for you , if they have it. We loved the area and the historic homes in the neighborhood. We even stayed an extra day. Close to the beach, dog park, downtown historic district and the Navel base is not too far either, if going make sure everyone has a photo ID 18 or older.

The cottage was cozy and the bed was very comfortable, bathroom was and they provided shampoo and conditioner, if you did forget yours. We will definitely come back again and stay and recommend it for any couple. Thanks Ray and Caroline for hosting your wonderful cottage.

Property was wonderful! It was tastefully decorated and super clean.

  • 5 of 5

Unit was gorgeous inside and so clean and quiet. Location was relatively close to downtown and to the fairgrounds. The owners were great, and even borrowed me butter when I forgot to buy it at the grocery store! Enjoyed the neighborhood while taking a walk. I hope to stay here again next time we visit Pensacola.
