  • Great Views

    "My family went to Summer Place with a group of friends from southern Wisconsin for the 2nd year in a row, but first in this unit and loved it. The condo was very clean and has great views of the Gulf and beautiful white sand beaches. We were in a 1st floor unit last year and views are good, but not anything like the views when you are 2nd floor or higher! The owner, Mike, was easy to work with and touched base a few times during week to make sure everything was ok. My only negative was that I did need to get on Internet for work (I know, I'm on vacation and shouldn't be working) and the wifi in this unit is not very good. Thankfully we had friends next door and I logged into theirs which worked great. That was a minor issue that was easily figured out. Summer Place deserves 5+ stars! Thanks Mike for the awesome hospitality! We will be back!!"

  • Home away from Home

    "We are very fortunate to spend our winters on Pensacola Beach, away from the cold Missouri weather. Santa Rosa Dunes is the perfect, peaceful community to relax and enjoy Gods wonders. Beautiful view of the sound, the minute you open the door. Even better to sit on your balcony, smell the ocean breeze, and listen to the waves crash from the Gulf. Just a short stroll across the road to experience the breathtaking, pristine sugar white sand, and crystal clear blue and emerald waters of the Gulf. For those lounge around (lazy) days, Santa Rosa Dunes has the largest Olympic size pool on the island for you to enjoy also. The condo itself is fabulous! New upgrades had been done, right before we got there-great job-. Extremely well maintained, super clean, and comfy! The condo is equipped with everything you will need for your stay.(except for the obvious,your personal items) Working with Corey was an absolute pleasure!! She made it a point to accommodate us and ensure our satisfaction. Could not of asked for a more pleasant or professional person to deal with, she was definitely on top of things from the get go. Agreements and payments were simple, confidential and without a doubt very reasonable. Perfectly located! Literally just a minute away from fun places to eat, entertainment, shopping, water sports,etc. I highly recommend this unit for your stay on Beautiful Pensacola Beach! Enjoy your time, on what I consider, a little piece of heaven here on Earth!! Safe travels and God Bless!"

  • Just perfect!

    "My husband and I needed a nice, comfortable place to relax and we found exactly what we were looking for and more! The unit was spotless when we arrived and the view of the gulf was incredible. Everything we needed was right within reach; the pool, the beach, easy parking, free DVD rentals, and places to eat! This was our first trip to the Ft Walton/Destin area and we will be back!"

  • Best Vacation We've Had

    "We were seeking a quiet get away on the beach and this place gave us everything we were wanting. The house was clean and decorations were nicely done. We felt that we had all of the comforts of home. The neighborhood was quiet and the store across the street was impressive with all of the items available. All this coupled with amazing weather made this our favorite and best vacation so far. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

Florida Main North West Travel Tips

Northwest Florida, aka the Florida Panhandle, is known for its stellar white sand beaches and glowing blue-green waters. The beaches of northwest Florida provide the area's most popular attractions for visitors. Surrounding the surf and sand are a variety of parks, restaurants and shops. Within this region is the Emerald Coast that runs from Pensacola to Port St. Joe, and the Forgotten Coast that runs from Mexico Beach to St. Marks.

Things to Do in Northwest Florida

National Museum of Naval Aviation: Anyone interested in space travel is sure to enjoy the rich history found here. With more than 140 restored aircraft from the Navy, Coast Guard Aviation and Marine Corps, this space offers plenty to explore. Watch a live Blue Angels flight demonstration, experience flight and motion-based simulators and learn about the interior of a cockpit.

Gulf World Marine Park: Tons of family fun can be had at Gulf World Marine Park. With the park's dolphin, scuba, sea lion and tropical bird shows, visitors can see these local animals up close and personal performing entertaining and amazing tricks and feats. As you stroll though, don’t miss Tropical Gardens, where you can pet a live string ray and visit the exhibits of otters, iguanas, alligators and penguins.

Panhandle Butterfly House: Along U.S. Highway 98 you’ll find the Navarre Visitor Center, and at the foot of the beach bridge is an interactive butterfly garden that’s home to migrating butterflies and a nursery housing local butterfly species. The facility is operated by volunteers, and visitors can take a class to learn about butterfly gardening, ecosystem management and habitat conservation. Step inside and witness dozens of types of butterflies flying around. These colorful, winged creations are certainly a sight to see.

Mission San Luis: This exciting northwestern Florida attraction is a popular living history park. More than 60 acres rest on a quiet oasis away from city living. As you walk through the park you’ll feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Examine the exhibit gallery and museum in the visitor center, which houses artifacts both excavated and from private collections. The theater produces live entertainment and a classroom offers workshops and special events. If you visit on Sunday, take an Archeology Tour to learn how the site’s been excavated and how artifacts are preserved.

Panhandle Opry: To get a taste of some good ol’ fashioned country western music, check out the Panhandle Opry on the first and third Saturday of each month. A collection of musical artists gets together to put on a traditional show for visitors who love the genre.

Pensacola Museum of Art: Situated in Pensacola’s historic Old City Jail Building, this public institution encourages creativity in visual arts with 18 annual exhibitions, workshops, lectures and films.

Best Beaches of Northwest Florida

Santa Rosa Beach: Santa Rosa Beach was founded in 1910 and was the start of South Walton as its known today. Surrounding this sandy area are luxurious beach houses, a unique artist colony and plenty of upscale dining. Follow up a day of sun and surf with an elegant evening out, complete with fine dining and plenty of culture.

Pensacola Beach: Famously known for pearly white sand and stunningly green waters, Pensacola Beach is certainly one to put on the must-see list. There are endless opportunities for both fun and relaxation here. Stroll down Pensacola Beach Pier or set up your rod for a morning of fishing. Stake your claim on the beach itself for some quality time with loved ones in the sun before grabbing a lunch of fresh seafood at a nearby eatery.

Topsail Hill State Preserve: At Topsail Hill you’ll find amazing natural features, including 3.2 miles of secluded sandy beaches and dunes rising more than 25 feet tall. The state preserve offers and excellent location for an afternoon of fishing off the shore or hiking through the trees while on the lookout for local birds. Of course, there’s the beach itself, where you can soak up some rays, build an epic sand castle or have a swimming race.
