The pier that extends 180’ into the sound to fish and/or watch evening sunsets. Home Theater with movies. We also provide towels, coolers and a wagon for the beach AND plenty of sand toys. All you need to pack is a camera and your clothes!

About Joy Wittke

We live outside of Atlanta, GA; and have 2 daughters and 2 grandsons.

Our dream was to own a beach house. Then we found out that we needed to rent it to help pay the bills. I talk to each renter to make sure that the house is a fit for their party. It's the beach, so I want everyone to have fun; but it is a private home.

Wayne and Joy Wittke

Joy Wittke purchased this house in 2006

Why Joy Wittke chose Pensacola Beach

We started building this house before Hurricane Ivan hit. It took 18 months to build so it feels like another child. We found this beach to be beautiful and charming without all the madness of the more 'popular' beaches. The beach has incredible white sand and our area at the end of the residential area feels almost private at times. The city of Pensacola has some big city attractions and is close enough for some adventures away from the beach atmosphere. There's plenty to do or just sit on one of the decks and enjoy the view.

This was our 2nd time in this house and both stays have been fantastic!!!! My favorite place in the house is the top floor kitchen (super well equipped!)with the huge bar and walk out balconies on both sides of the house. 2 minute walk to sound side and beach side. Well equipped with beach chairs and sand toys. Perfect for large families or multiple families!!! We're already planning our trip back next year:)

For Pensacola Beach, we could not have done better for a reasonably priced four bedroom home with beach access in a gated community. This house is 3.5 miles east of downtown Pensacola Beach. We were close enough to easily access the downtown and far enough away to avoid any noise. The island is thin at Santa Rosa Villas (gated community) going from the spectacular white sand beach on the Gulf side, to the road, to Santa Rosa Villas--only four houses deep until the sound/Pensacola Bay. There was hardly anyone on the beach every single day, unlike downtown. The house itself was great. Ground level entrance and garage, which we did not bother with, parking instead in the driveway. Second floor has three bedrooms with a laundry room; the master has a great Gulf side balcony. Top floor was living/dining/kitchen/half bath and another master with en suite with balconies and water views on each side. All rooms were large and roomy. One bedroom was a bit crowded caused by two sets of bunkbeds. All bedrooms had TVs; great cable service with Netflix. All furniture and electronics were in great shape. House very tastefully decorated beach style. Everything that you could want for appliances and utensils in the kitchen were there. The house was well stocked with linens and towels. There was a great community spirit to the inherited condiments, dry goods and spices, as well as puzzles games and videos, which we accessed then contributed to at the end. The neighbourhood was extremely quiet (yeah). There is no pool but rather a community pool three houses over, which we used only once (preferring the beach). We were the only ones at the pool and it was great. The outside shower off the garage was welcome coming back from the beach, and kept us from tracking much sand into the house. The owner, Joy, was a pleasure; quick to respond, and thorough. Directions and access codes were without confusion. Contract was straight forward, damage deposit was returned promptly within a week. I would encourage you to compare this house's rate with others in Santa Rosa Villas. It was at the lower end and we have a hard time believing that the other houses were that much better. If they were, it was an increment that we did not need, nor need to pay for. In terms of the Pensacola area, a bonus was the free air show by the Blue Angels twice per week. We took it in once. In sum, a family house in great shape for a perfect beach getaway. Paul and Victoria

We (the Grandparents and Aunt and Uncle) hosted a wonderful 4 night "get ready for the wedding" celebration and work party for our granddaughter (and niece) last week! Everything was perfect for our time at Summer Beach Blues: our great interactions with Joy (owner), the perfect weather, the beds were made when we arrived after dark, the house was equipped with everything we needed (and more), the night before the wedding the girls had a special time - even though the "older" adults were present in the house (but downstairs), the bridal breakfast (which we loved making for the girls) was excellent because the kitchen had everything we needed to make whatever we planned to prepare, the master bedroom and bathroom was big enough for the bride and maid of honor to dress AND apply makeup without bumping into each other! The decks in front and back were occupied each morning and evening (and probably in between) for coffee or wine. The area is peaceful and beautiful. Early morning jogs were common for many of us and easy since the bike (jog) trail is right there. Some of us even took a swim in the beautiful and warm water. Everyone had a wonderful time - thank you Joy!

My family (including 7 adults and 2 children) had a wonderful time in Pensacola Beach and loved Summer Beach Blues. The neighborhood is fantastic with the pool, bay and beach all so close. The house has great views from the balconies and large living and kitchen areas. The house was clean, well-maintained and fully stocked with towels, dishes, utensils, pots/pans, etc. and even a wagon to carry things to and from the beach! After spending the days in the sun, we relaxed with "movie nights" with DVDs provided by Joy and Netflix. The children loved "their" bunk beds. All in all, everyone had just what they needed to make our vacation enjoyable!

I would definitely recommend this property. The owner was quick to respond to questions, etc thru e-mails. Our deposit was mailed back to us within days of our departure. A great experience!

Perfect Beach Thanksgiving!

What a seamless experience. Joy, the owner, is an absolute doll and should win an award for best rental owner. The house itself took my breath away when I arrived ..and if I'm being honest...I was a bit bugged when I got there with my OOdles of supplies, to find that Joy had already equipped the house with EVERYTHING...and then some. From appliances, to cookware, to condiments, spices and Tupperware, plastic, foil...you name it. Hahaha ...I'm kidding...I was never upset one SECOND of this experience ...it was a dream vacation for me, my husband, two of my grown children and their spouses and my toddling grandson (my oldest dauhghter and her beau couldn't attend :(- and my 14 yr. old son. My oldest son set up his super powered telescope on the top balcony. THAT was impressive. We saw the moon of course, and Jupiter and Orion's Belt.

We cooked EVERYTHING for Thanksgiving...both carnivore and vegan. And SOo much room! At one point there were 5 of us scurrying around the kitchen and no one was in the way. The master bedroom was divine...super comfy bed...rich lady shower (hah)...and the MOVIE and BOOK collection Joy has in the house...holy moly. We just loved looking through them all. I stayed a day and a half by myself at the end and watched 3 movies. What an awesome time. We fished, we swam...all in the gulf from the gorgeous (private) stretch of beach right across the street.

Glorious! That's it. Glorious and the end. Thank you Joy and Wayne, Sincerely...from the Ganucheau family. :) [8 smile rating]
