Beauty & the Beach - PortSide Villas

Bedrooms 3
Separate WC's1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Townhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

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!

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 pizza ck 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 manager

We have been staying at PSV for the last 32 years. This is the first time in your unit. Your unit is by far the best in the complex! Everything we needed was here. Your dining room table is stunning!! Thank you for your “ memory house"

Wonderful, Relaxing, Extremely Accomodating!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this unit and the owner Nancy. This unit is spotless and very well maintained. As far as accomodations, there was not anything that we needed that we did not find in the unit. The ice maker in the laundry room was an added bonus that I have never had the luxury of having on vacation before (got to have a cooler at the beach). The beds were comfortable and we loved the HUGE dinning room table! I have stayed in Pensacola for the past 8 years. Port Side Villas is by far my families favorite location on the island and now we have found our favorite unit on the island. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the ocean is breathtaking. The convient location to the beach and the pool make switching activities for awhile a breeze. The ground deck made coming in from the beach a cinch! I always book our vacations with the owner and I had never spoke to an owner that wanted her renters to love her unit and the island as much as Nancy does. She is very informative of the island and the unit, and she took the time to talk with me and let me know about area attractions, restaurants, grocery stores and more! We were lucky to have good weather during our stay, we watched dolphins, found sea shells (tons of small sand dollars), enjoyed a beach that was not crowded, and of course enjoyed some of the area attractions. Pegleg Pete's resturant just down the road is always enjoyed by my family, as well as visiting Fort Pickens! Being from Missouri we do not get fresh seafood so we always visit JoePattis and have a seafood night at the unit, this unit has everything you need to cook your favorite seafood! We also enjoyed the BBQ grills. There is plenty of outdoor seating also. I hope other families enjoy this beautiful unit and its perfect location as much as mine did! You will not be disappointed in this unit!

As usual, Beauty and the Beach is the BEST on the beach and PSV

  • 5 of 5

Always love coming here. We have been coming to PSV for over 30 years, almost every year. Except for one year in a very bad unit, we have never been disappointed. There is everything in this unit that is needed, which is sometimes sorely lacking in others. However, the price is becoming extremely high. Is there a reason there is no King bed on the first floor? That is usually the "Senior Citizens" floor ha - ha! Also the bed on the first floor was not comfortable, nor was the King on the second according to those staying in that bed. Except for the beds, everything else is PERFECT! This is by far the best unit on the beach. The Dining Room table is amazing and we had so many fun nights around the table. Love the new patio area. Made picture of all the "cousins" on that deck because of rain. It may become a yearly tradition, if we're lucky enough to get to come next year. We had family with three different units at PSV and Gulf Winds that week - 21 in all ! Hope to make it a yearly thing and maybe more next year at other units if possible. Wonderful time every year! Thank you for the use of your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comments about my beach home. I do want to know how I can improve your experience. With regard to your thoughts about the price as compared to the other units-I am familiar with all the rental units at PortSide. Mine is the only one with the downstairs deck with chairs, picnic table and 4 burner propane grill on it. Mine is also the only unit with a dining room table that seats 12. With regard to the beds, they are only used in the spring and summer and are 7 years old. The 1st floor bed is not kingsized because that would not allow for bedside tables. Certainly that is not a perfect situation but I hope we have enough positive features to bring you back. With best wishes , Nancy

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The place is clean and very comfortable. Great access to the beach, nice pool, and nice decks, especially on the ground level. She had everything there we needed there to help enjoy our stay. I let Nancy know the air conditioning was not keeping up on the main floor (which is totally out of her control) while I was on the beach in the evening, and it was fixed before we got back 30 minutes later. I was impressed with Nancy and the tech. We will be looking to stay again next trip!

I'm glad you and your family enjoyed the new ground level deck. We're fortunate to have a dedicated group of people who help us keep the house in good order. We would gladly welcome your family back to stay with us again. Nancy

Beautiful, clean, spacious, quiet, and on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. A beautiful, clean place right on the beach, with a pool and tennis court next door. We recommend it.

Owner's Response: Mike, Thank you so much. We believe we have the best complex on the Gulf because we are the last complex on the Gulf next to the National Historic Beach so no other complex is allowed to be built next to us! Also our complex is gated so people can't walk through it to get to the beach. We're also fortunate to have Judy, our cleaning lady who is a real detail person and takes great pride in her work! If you come back to Pensacola Beach we would be glad to have you and your family stay with us again! Thanks, Nancy

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I came here with a few friends for a weekend get away and I was blown away! The place is super clean, right near the beach, and has more amenities than I could ask for. I would highly suggest staying here. The beach is visible from one of the porches, and there is ample space to entertain. You will not be disappointed here!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Patrick! We feel so fortunate to have 3 gated blocks on the Gulf of Mexico right next to the National Historic Beach ! We know we won't have to worry about having a complex built next to us. This privacy is so special and it really allows us to relax at the Beach! We would gladly welcome you and your friends back since you took such great care of our beach home! Nancy
