Location . . .
Our beach home sleeps eight cozy and is located directly between the Gulf and the Sound and it's renown sugar white beaches.

A short walk from the front of our home can take you either to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico or to The Sound. Look closely at our web listing photos to see how close you are to both beaches.

There is a sidewalk and boardwalk located at the south end of Avenida 18 which is our cross street providing easy access to The Gulf, and there is immediate access to The Sound via the north end of our block. It takes you right onto the beaches of The Sound to what is locally known as 'Babies Beach' because of shallow, calm, clear waters. Families with litte ones can relax . . . more anyway! It is also a great location option to kayak and learn how to paddleboard!

Boater's Delight . . .
Should you choose to bring your boat, it is also convenient to anchor your small boat in the Sound and park your trailer on our driveway. This allows for easy traveling back and forth to our home between boating adventures so long as you don't mind a short wade to shore.

The bottom is sandy and the waters are deep enough to allow for mooring of most small boats. You can also keep a watchful eye on your vessel with unobstructed views from our home while you grab what you forgot, come home for dinner or just take a breather in preparation for the next adventure out.

Surfer's Delight . . .
Our location at Avenida 18 is a favored local's surfing spot in the Gulf because of wave breaks. Check out our Facebook page, Pensacola Beach Getaway, to see recent guest's review!

Parking to Yourself . . .
Plenty of parking is available on the large driveway and under the home to park your cars, RV, boat, boat trailer or jet skis.

Beach Travels . .
Set out for the beach with a wagon provided complete with beach chairs and an umbrella to protect you when wanted for a day in the sun. Or, head out on one of the four beach bikes provided on the bike paths alongside our home, the beach, thru neighborhoods, and/or to local restaurants and entertainment. (Please note, the wagon and bikes are welcome for 'use at own risk'. ) Return from your day at the beach and enjoy an enclosed outdoor shower with both hot and cold running water to refresh and bathe in comfort.

Community Park . . .
The beach community park is adjacent to the home and has plenty of amenities to offer including tennis and basketball courts, eighth mile jogging track, gazebo, playground equipment for kids, and roller hockey rink. Crosswalks and sidewalks take you safely to and from.

Perfect for Families . . .
A private, fenced entrance and yard is provided for the safety of little ones vacationing with you. 'Babies Beach', as it is commonly known by locals because of it's shallow, calm waters, is only a little over a block away on The Sound, affording a relaxing day at the beach for children of all ages. It's also a beautifully convenient and relaxing option if rough surf, jelly fish or red tide at Gulf during your stay!

In addition, a Wii game system with over a half a dozen games is located in the Guest bedroom to provide fun entertainment for youth and family.

Views . . .
Awesome views of both the Gulf and the Sound await our guests from the home because of our corner location, along with enjoying the breezes and the opportunity for basking in the warmth of the Island sun or in the cool shade our home and upper and lower decks provide.

Perfect for Beach Weddings . . .
We are also located across the street from both beach churches, Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church and the Pensacola Beach Community United Church of Christ, affording a perfect location for participating in that special wedding celebration.

Free Summer Trolley Travels . . .
Free Summer trolley travels begin Sunday, May 25 and run from 4 p.m. to midnight, seven days a week through Labor Day. A trolley stop is just steps away on the corner from our home, providing you with access to free, fun, safe and easy listening Island tunes as you travel to and from the core beach area, where the finest in dining and fun entertainment await you. Trolley stops are numbered so riders may use their smart phones or computers to log into or call the electronic tracking service to find out the arrival time for the next trolley. Tiki hut stops are along routes to provide landmarks and rest in the shade for smart trolley riders who prefer to ride and not worry about finding parking. Trolleys run as far as to the entrance of Ft. Pickens at the West end of the Island and as far as Portofino Condominiums at the East end of the Island with a whole lot of stops and fun to be had between!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About the owner: We are a family of four where Dad has been the primary bread winner and Mom has held part time jobs throughout the years while raising two sons. Employment opportunities in health care finance brought us to Pensacola and then moved us on to Miami and we are now living in Jacksonville! Our Pensacola Beach home is now a Vacation Rental Home for others to enjoy as their 'Home Away from Home' . 'Thank You' for staying with us!!! We are sure you will enjoy your stay in our slice of absolute paradise!

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We purchased our beach home the same year we started our family, twenty two years ago, after moving to Pensacola for employment. This home is special to us and is where we hope to some day retire and rejoin our friends and neighbors. Although the home was remodeled a bit at a time over the years as a result of storm damage and then almost completely rebuilt following the hurricanes of Ivan in September '04 which flooded everyone on the Island and Dennis in July '05 which took the top off our home, what you experience when you stay in our home now is the combined efforts of architectural design and construction by some of those very same long time beach neighbors and friends. When you live on P'Cola Beach you become more than a member of the community. You become part of a beach family whose bonds are strengthened because of being just that . . . a beach resident who has a deep appreciation for the beach life. There is nothing like it. You are amongst others who are willing to accept the risks of living on the Island in order to experience and enjoy the beauty and glory of it every single day when living on it. You will experience this same wonderfully friendly community environment when you choose to stay in our home on beautiful Pensacola Beach.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      When staying in our beach home, you'll enjoy short walks to either the Gulf or Sound and the renown white sand beaches and the option of an enclosed, outdoor hot/cold shower to freshen up on your return. A Community Park with Tennis Courts, Basketball, Roller Hockey, jogging track, playground equipment and a gazebo to rest in the shade is just across the street. The trolley stops steps away on the corner from our home. We even have a bench at the edge of our carport to sit and relax while waiting for the trolley to take you to and from the beach core area to experience some of the finest dining and to purchase those souvenirs to remember your get away stay. Both a community church and Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church are across the street for Sunday worship. Boaters will enjoy the cove like harbor at the end of our street in the Sound which affords mooring of small boats while making a short wade to shore to come back to our home to enjoy meals or pick up what or who you may have forgotten. There are bike paths up and down from one end of the Island to another. Historical Ft. Pickens is at the west end of the Island where Geronimo was once kept prisoner and is a must see to appreciate. The Fishing Pier at the center of the business area is one of the longest that extends out into the Gulf and affords some of the best fishing as a result. The East end has nationally protected shores also affording limited development on our unique Island. Don't forget exploring in town either to see the home of the Blue Angels jets and pilots at the Naval Air Base. Diving in the area is great too with the Oriskany the largest artificial reef and latest diving spot to explore. The historical downtown area is also a great place to shop and dine. Be sure to check out the renown fish market on the water for a one of a kind experience. Pensacola is a gem and limitless really in all it has to offer. Stay, explore and you're sure to enjoy. Best wishes!
