Our Old Florida style cottage has a retro look with modern conveniences. Relax with your morning beverage in the sun on the south-facing super sized deck and enjoy the view of the native grasses and trees in the large backyard. If you bring your canine friend, he will appreciate the room to roam. (Dog owners please read pet policy, below)
Take a book and an umbrella over to the beach, or one of our boogie boards to enjoy the surf. When you return, there is an outdoor shower on the deck, and a hammock in which to slowly while away the rest of the day.
Dine in the dining room, at the spacious kitchen bar, or out on the deck. Master bedroom has a queen bed, and the second bedroom has a full size bed. The bath with tub and shower is steps away off the hall.
A large screen TV or library of books is available for evening entertainment, or take a pleasant stroll in the friendly residential neighborhood. It's just a short block to Baby Beach on the Sound.
We have a professional property manager that handles reservations and all arrangements for us. After you email me or call me me, I will forward your request to the manager so that they can provide you with an exact quote for your stay. Rates stated on this site are for estimates only; rates do vary with the seasons and are also subject to change at any time.
Pet Policy: please be aware there is a fee for bringing your pet into our home. All dogs are expected to be licensed and up to date on their shots, and have flea protection. Last year the Florida fleas were immune to the product called Frontline, but we understand that Frontline was re-formulated for this season. If your dog is on Frontline (again, we are requiring that you do use some sort of flea protection) you might want to check with your vet regarding his experience with its current effectiveness in Florida, as we switched our dogs to another product, we can't vouch for it. We don't want your friend to pick up any hitchhikers on those nice long walks (or leave any behind:)

Year Purchased: 1985
About: I am a fine art photographer, and my husband is an urban planner. We love the unspoiled vibe of our beach community. We have two dogs, a border collie mix and a lab mix, who love to hunt lizards in the palmettos. We like to travel with them, and appreciate how difficult it is to find a pet friendly rental house. That is the reason we are offering our home to dog lovers!
Why Other Pensacola Beach Properties: This has been our family home since 1985, and even though we move away now and then, we always come back. We have nurtured the house and flower-filled yard with love and dedication over the years.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We love our huge back deck and think it is the best addition we have ever made to the property. Half of it is shaded and half of it is sunny, making it ideal in any season. We like the fact that we can walk to the Sound or to the Gulf and the grandchildren can hunt crabs or shells and play in the water on either side of the island.
