This beautiful family home in the gated Port Side Villas development was completely rebuilt in 2008. The casual, yet elegant décor was created by a well known interior designer with an eye for beauty, but also an understanding of the practical needs of travelers. Each room provides a unique retreat for rest and relaxation. This chic, three bedroom three and a half bath unit, is perfect for entertaining sophisticated friends or for welcoming the extended family for a fabulous vacation. State of the art amenities include a Bose sound system, high definition 56” flat panel screen television in living room and flat screen TV in each bedroom, and WiFi throughout. A stand alone ice maker provides all the ice necessary to enjoy frozen libations on the huge deck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Granite counter tops and all new stainless appliances will make cooking meals a pleasure. But if escaping the kitchen is your idea of fun then fine dining and casual eateries are just minutes away.

The cool color palette reflects hues from the magnificent gulf waters and pristine white beaches which are just steps from the door. You will be so comfortable inside the house that you may even be tempted to stay indoors! So sleep in and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of your vacation home. Relax in the luxurious 6’ whirlpool or large glass enclosed shower in the master bath, and enjoy coffee on the Master Bedroom deck. You may also choose to go to the 24’ wide deck on the second floor and drink coffer with your guests. When the beautiful weather beckons you outside, you can choose the beach, the new pool, or even a game of tennis. The expansive gulf frontage( gated 365' Gulf Front Beach) assures ample space to spread out on the beach and enjoy the breeze. The only crowds you will encounter might be the porpoises frolicking in the warm gulf waters or the sand crabs dodging in and out of the waves.

Once you view the beautiful pictures and detailed amenities please feel free to call me with any questions. I look forward to helping you plan your vacation stay!

About Nancy Adams

As a young girl for many years, my family and my parents' friends' families would come to Pensacola Beach for a week in the summer. It was something we looked forward to all year long.Years later,my late husband would race his sailboat to Pensacola for the yearly Pensacola Race. In 1979 we bought Port Side Villas #7. Elizabeth,our daughter was in the seventh grade then. We have enjoyed many wonderful occasions there with our extended family. Now Elizabeth and her husband,Terry have 4 sons. In 2003, I married Jesse Adams.Jesse and his late wife, Teresa raised 5 children. Jesse,an attorney is one of the clergy staff at Trinity Episcopal Church in New Orleans. Jesse and I rebuilt the condo after Hurricane Ivan. We are so happy to have it finished and have the time to enjoy it. Together we have 17 grandchildren! We hope to spend time at the beach with them to be part of another generation of fun and great memories!

Nancy Adams purchased this condo in 1979

Why Nancy Adams chose North West Florida

My late husband,Cal along with Vernon Main and Donald Bosquet donated the WWI 'Jenny' to the Navel Air Museum in Pensacola. We donated the airplane in 1977 and two years later we bought this condo.I know that part of the attraction for us,other than the obvious ones was that the Jenny was there. We wanted a place on the beach that was isolated and quiet...Port Side Villas is that! We have always rented our home to other families. We would love to share it with you. We look forward to helping you make your own great memories!


What makes this condo unique

The unique benefit of our complex is that it is gated and right next to the National Historic Beach. This makes it very secluded with no walk through traffic to the Gulf and the Beach. During the summer months there is a Trolley that stops along the beach, every 10 to 15 minutes, to pick up and drop off guest at restaurants and shops along the beach. We love this because parking on the beach during the summer is very difficult.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed our time at your beach home. It was perfect for our family. We could tell that you have taken extra care to make it such a special and pleasant place. I appreciate the well stocked kitchen. We will certainly want to s=tay here again.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, and enjoyed the fireplace and cold walks on the beach. It was too cold to have beach time, but the condo was very comfortable and beautifully decorated.

Was Not Disappointed. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely townhome. It is very well kept and the owner has added extra touches to let you know that she takes pride in her property. It is very bright and airy which I like. We found it very clean and well equipped with towels and bedding and has one of the best stocked kitchens of any rental unit that we have ever stayed in. It is on the beach and the ocean is in view from the living room and the master bedroom. There is also a very nice pool for the complex. It is located in a short distance from many of the restaurants and shops. We would certainly want to stay here again!

Party of 8!

  • 5 of 5

Us Georgia folks fell in love the minute we walked in your condo, Nancy! So much room and so beautifully decorated! Everything was provided for us and the sofa bed was very comfortable!! Our favorite place we have stayed so far at any beach!! Loved watching the Angels on Saturday and then checking in to our "home away from home" for the week! Hope to visit again one day!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We try to anticipate what guests would want at the beach and have it there for them. We're so fortunate to have Judy, our housekeeper who leads our efforts to keep the unit at its best.

Best House on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row to stay at Beauty and the Beach at Portside Villas. We absolutely love it and are ready to book it for next year. Our family has been vacationing at Pensacola Beach for over 20 years and we have stayed all over the beach. Portside Villas and especially this unit have become our most favorite spot. You are steps away from the Gulf which makes getting set up for your beach day a breeze. The townhouse is beautifully decorated and has a fully stocked kitchen so you can easily cook in if you like. There is even an ice machine which keeps up with our high demand of packing a cooler for all day at the beach. Our family enjoys the large TV in the living room and we also appreciate that there is a TV in each bedroom. The townhouse is stocked with lots of board games that are great if you end up with a rainy day. The townhouse is very clean and all the beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are also stocked with plenty of towels, but if you need to do laundry, there is a very nice washer and dryer provided. We hope to spend many more years to come vacationing in this beautiful beach home.

Highly recommend. Very spacious with each bedroom having its own bathroom. Location is great, quiet and direct access to the beach. Every detail was thought of with high quality kitchen items, washer dryer, separate ice maker and even plush towels. Hope to stay here again!
