Private Homes house description

Have you been searching for a Pensacola beach house with a private pool and hot tub on Pensacola Beach? Well, we have it!

We've worked hard to make sure our guests of all ages enjoy our new addition! I have furnished our Pensacola Palm weekly vacation rental with family members from babies to grandparents in mind. We do not host weddings, parties, or spring break groups.

The 12' x 24' pool has a shallow area that is about 6” deep for mothers and babies, or grandparents, or sunbathers who want to stay cool in the water. It also has shallow steps, then gradually slopes from 3’6” to 5’8”, with special 4-color rotating lighting in the pool at night!

Two water 'fountains', one on each side of the pool deck, shoot water into the shallow end of the pool. There is plenty of room around the pool for tables and chairs, and there is also an 87' bench that surrounds most of the pool It's great for sunbathing and at night it has indirect lighting underneath that gently lights the entire pool area.

In addition, we also have an 8' 6' diameter HOT TUB !!! There is a blue light in the tub. Our grandson calls it 'The Smurf Pool'! Between the pool and the hot tub, it's double the fun!

The pool and hot tub area are surrounded by a 6' privacy fence and a 5' metal fence, with the required security gates and latches. The two gates that open into the pool area open away from the pool, so no small child can push the pool gates open and walk into the pool area. They also are spring loaded so that they automatically close when you let go of them. Both gate latches are 54' or more from the ground. That means that you have to be able to reach over 4' 6' high to open the gates.

There are also two outdoor hot/cold showers!

The pool has a salt system that eliminates the harsh chemicals that most chlorine system pools have. Even though we refer to it as a “salt system”, the water is not salty. The advantage is that it will not turn your hair “green”, won't dry your skin out, or make your eyes burn like the chemicals that go along with chlorine systems do. The salt water transforms into chlorine through a special process, so you still have the sanitation of the chlorine. A salt system is a great step in advancement of pools!

During the day Grandpa and Grandma can relax beside the pool, and if they’re not working on their tans, they can relax in the outdoor covered 'Family Room Down Under' which is under the house (the house is on pilings) where there is a picnic table, a high table and 4 chairs, plenty of other lawn chairs, and a hammock! From there they can watch everyone in the pool and at the same time enjoy the constant cool ocean breeze. (Or they can snooze in the hammock.)

We have two beach wagons that you can stack full of all the things you want to take to the beach. They will each hold a rectangle ice chest, boogie boards, fishing poles, etc. They have wide tires that make pulling through the sand much, much easier.

At night, the 'Family Room Down Under' is lighted, so the entire family can enjoy outdoor entertaining to its fullest, both in the pool, the hot tub, and the covered 'Family Room Down Under' area! You will be able to have outdoor “picnics” around the clock! We also have a charcoaler. Can't you taste the hamburgers, hot dogs, and steaks now?

With the Gulf of Mexico just one short block away, you will have the best of both worlds to choose from: swim in the Gulf, swim in the pool or relax in the hot tub!

There are very few vacation rental beach houses on Pensacola Beach with a private pool and hot tub. We are filling up fast, so book early!

************************

Relax on Santa Rosa Island, Pensacola Beach, in our Pensacola Palm vacation home. Let the sugar white sand and turquoise, crystal clear water of the Gulf become a part of your very soul. But be careful, when you leave, our beach house will constantly be calling you back for more!

We are a family-oriented home. We rent only for family vacations or family reunions. We do not rent our home for parties of any kind, weddings, or college spring breaks. Many families have found that our Pensacola Palm beach house is the perfect home for making memories to last a lifetime. Life goes by so fast, don’t let the opportunity for making those precious memories pass you by. The fun you have in our Pensacola Palm beach house and at the beach will be relived for a lifetime!

We have worked very hard to make sure our Pensacola Palm beach house is clean, smells good, is comfortable, and well equipped. We care about your comfort!

For those of you who have rented from us before, we have remodeled the living area, and now the main floor offers an open living room/kitchen area where everyone can congregate to play games, eat together, watch TV, and make memories. The kitchen is part of the living area, so no one is left out.

We have everything you will need to serve meals for your hungry crowd! Cooking equipment of all kinds, silverware, serving/cooking utensils, and even recipe books are provided. Other items for your convenience are a coffee pot with a timer, toaster, microwave, large broiler oven, Jennaire range with a conventional/convection oven, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker.

Our dining room table expands to seat 10, and our living room/dining area will comfortably seat 17.

In a little over 1½ minutes, the length of two backyards, you will be on Pensacola Beach and at the Gulf of Mexico! Just walk down either of the designated walkways. One is one house to your left, and the other is two houses to your right. The Sound is only about 2 blocks away in the opposite direction.

We can provide sleeping arrangements for 11 guests. There is room for everyone to get together, or room for individual privacy. We've furnished it as if we were going to be living in it ourselves full-time. Our beach house is your beach house!

Those members of your family who prefer fun in the sun can enjoy the upper deck with a view of the Gulf of Mexico. Our back master bedroom opens directly onto that same sun deck and overlooks the pool and hot tub area below. You can see and hear the waves from our home!

Or, you can let the cool ocean breeze run its fingers through your hair as you relax in the shaded, spacious 'Family Room Down Under'.

For our smaller guests we have pint-sized indoor/outdoor chairs, and an indoor table and chairs. We have even thought of our smallest guests. You will find a Pac ‘n Play, recliner/highchair/booster seat, a regular high chair, and a baby gate.

On the main level is a master bedroom with a king sized bed and tub, and another master bedroom that opens to the deck and also has a king bed and shower in its bathroom. We get a lot of compliments on the comfort of our mattresses.

We also have a kid's bedroom that has a full sized bed and another regular twin bed that pulls out from under one the full bed. That bedroom uses the hall bath with a tub/shower combination.

Then we have a 3rd floor loft with a wall of glass that looks out to the Gulf with a queen platform bed.

We also have two sofas in the living room, with one of them being a queen sleeper sofa.

All bedrooms and living areas have TVs, some with VCRs or DVD players. For a fun evening of drawing the family together and friendly competition, you can choose from games such as Monopoly, Scattergories, cards, checkers, etc. Jigsaw puzzles, search-a-word books, various magazines and children's toys are also available for your enjoyment.

We have an 80 gallon hot water tank so you can relax in the whirlpool tub AND have other members of your family taking long, hot, soothing showers or baths in any or all of our three bathrooms.

There is enough parking space for 4 cars in the driveway and 2 in the circle drive.

We have worked really hard to make sure you have a clean, comfortable, fully equipped, carefree home to relax in! After all, you’ve worked hard and you deserve it!

                      Car: Necessary

                      Our Pensacola Palm vacation rental beach house is located about one mile east of the toll booth when you enter Pensacola Beach. We are one short block (2 min walk) from the Gulf. There is a designated walkway (concrete sidewalk) to the beach one home to the left and two homes to the right from our home. You can see and hear the waves from our home.

                      Just one mile east of our home starts the Gulf Islands National Seashore, which is 13 miles of nothing but sand, sea oats and water! There are a couple picnic areas with showers and restrooms, and also parking areas, but nothing commercial. Most of the time you can park and walk on the white sand beach. You may be the only ones for as far as you can see. Where else can you go in the world and have that happen?

                      On the other end of the island is Fort Pickens. It is another isolated drive to the Fort. Once at the Fort, you are free to ramble around and take as long as you want. It's a very quiet location.

                      There are many very good restaurants on Pensacola Beach and near by Pensacola.

                      Just two blocks from our home is a public lighted tennis court, picnic area, roller hockey court with basketball goals and a running track.

                      Also on Pensacola Beach you can go parasailing, play putt putt, and ride the go carts and jet skis. Of course, don't forget, the entire beach is public and always open 24/7!

                      During the spring and summer months a free trolly will take you anywhere you want to go on Pensacola Beach.

                      Downtown Pensacola has many historical sites, museums, art galleries and restaurants as well. You will find that one week won't be long enough!

                      And, of course, don't forget the Naval Museum! You can spend an entire day checking everything out. There is an indoor play area for the kids and a restaurant, so the day will be gone before you know it. With an IMax theater there also, you can view up to 4 different movies during the day. Each movie starts on the hour and runs 45 min. with a 15 min. interval between each one.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: We are a Mom-Pop organization and are not a property management company. Managing and renting our Pensacola Palm to wonderful families from all the the U.S., Canada and Europe has been my full time job. We have been renting our private home to great families from all over the U.S., Canada and Europe for the last 11 years! We've weathered two hurricanes and come out stronger than before both times. I have stood in our Pensacola Palm and asked myself 'If I were two, what would I want?' and 'If I were 99, what would I want?' My goal is to make sure every family member goes home knowing that I was thinking specifically about them as I furnished our home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      When you rent from a private owner, like us, you get personalized service. Property Management companies tend to treat you as a number, not a person. We live one hour away. If there is something you need, we are a quick call away. If you have trouble, we will come personally, or have one of our many service people who are on staff to help us come as quickly as possible.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We fell in love with our Pensacola Palm because we saw how our home could provide so many happy memories for other families. We are very family oriented and have children and grandchildren of our own. It means the world to us to be able to get together with our family and make those precious memories that will last a life time, so we understand how important your vacation is to you.
