Immaculate apartment above garage. Still smells new! Wake up in this bright and airy apartment, and make breakfast in the full size kitchen. Eat at the quartz island with lovely leather barstools, laminate flooring, stainless steel appliances. Or take your coffee outside and sit by the fountain as you enjoy the morning stillness. After a fun day at the beach or exploring historic Pensacola, relax on leather couches and watch TV or read a book without the annoying noises of a hotel! When it’s time to retire, crawl into this comfortable queen size bed with pillow top. Four pillows of varying degrees of firmness provided so you can find one that is “just right”! (Room darkening curtains for those who like to sleep in.) Walk in shower with handheld sprayer, and glass doors prevent that claustrophobic feeling. Perfect for parents visiting military members, or couple coming in for one of our great festivals! Sorry no animals, no smoking on property, not handicapped accessible (outside stairway). Vaping is okay outside. On street parking. Located in an eclectic and beautiful neighborhood, this is a great place to walk or bike. Five minutes to historic downtown Pensacola, twenty minutes to the beach or the Naval Air Station, fifteen minutes to airport. Beach chairs and umbrella for rent, $10/day ( versus $8/hr at the beach). Owners live in the 1907 era bungalow on property, so readily available for special requests. We built the apartment for our four children to vacation with their families, but love to have visitors. Please drop us a note telling us a little about yourselves and why you're planning to visit. Welcome to beautiful Pensacola!

About John and Maureen Langston
Avid divers and sea-shellers, we love the beach life! Pensacola is a wonderful town with lots of cultural activities downtown. Come for vacation, and return for a lifetime.
John and Maureen Langston purchased this Guest House in 2014
Why John and Maureen Langston chose East Hill
Stay in the popular neighborhood of East Hill, an eclectic array of Victorian, Craftsman and Old stucco homes with amazing personality. Just a bike ride to parks, shops and downtown festivals! Short drive to beach and Pensacola Naval Air Station. New construction with high quality details such as handmade window sills and barn door. This apartment was a labor of love, so our grown children will have somewhere to stay when they visit. We invite you to visit us!
What makes this Guest House unique
Immaculately clean, new construction, initially listed on VRBO February 2018. Less than 2 miles from the heart of Pensacola, but in a safe beautiful neighborhood with many parks and charming Craftsman and Victorian homes. Only 6 miles to Pensacola's beautiful white sand beaches!

Cozy, clean and modern
My husband and I just spent 3 nights in this charming apartment. We found it to be cleaner than the average (and some above average) hotel room, and we loved having a bit more space than a hotel room affords. We loved the modern design, and we found excellent appliances, dishes, silverware, towels and linens. (We even raved every night about how soft we found the bed sheets to be!) John and Maureen were very helpful, both before we arrived and when we checked in. We knew they were available if we needed anything, but they also gave us our space. We appreciated being able to exchange friendly greetings if they were outside when we came and went. Even though the apartment is so close to their home, we still felt we had more than ample privacy. We were super close to a lot of great restaurants, and it was an easy drive across the bridges to the beach. This was our first VRBO experience, and as a result we'll hold future owners to some pretty high standards! Everything about booking and staying here was easy, and we loved how cozy we felt in the space during our long weekend there. We'd highly recommend the owners and the space to others!
Thank you for the kind review Melanie! Glad you enjoyed the visit and had a chance to unwind. Hope we will see you again! Maureen & John
Fantastic hosts and a lovely modern touch
We were in town for the weekend for a wedding and the location was great. Right in the middle of everything. Didn’t know that it was the guest house at first off of the main residence but that didn’t end up being a problem at all because we were left with complete privacy. Everything inside was great and modern and very up to date. The shower very relaxing and the hosts from day 1 made us feel at ease. Will be back again
Beautiful Home, Great Location, Lovely Hosts
This property has everything we could have hoped for in a vacation, and we were very sad to have to leave! The pictures don't really do justice to how beautiful this property is. It still smells new and has been very well cared for. We stayed for a week and a half and were never uncomfortable or displeased. The location was less than a 15-minute drive to Pensacola Beach and nearly a straight shot drive, plus stores and abundant restaurants minutes away.
Parking was on the street but we knew this in advance and it is a very nice neighborhood with a quiet street so we had no concerns doing this. The hosts were very friendly, meeting us the night we arrived and didn't mind us pulling down the driveway to unload. We had little interaction with the hosts because no problems came up, but all interactions were very positive, and they were both easily accessible at any time. Bonus points for three very sweet dogs we got to enjoy while grilling!
One thing we didn't really realize when booking was how close this was to the main property, being on the second floor over an un-attached garage right off the back door of the main residence. However, despite the proximity, I always felt that privacy was abundant and we had no limitations on access to the house, even when we stayed out late.
We were completely satisfied with this property and hope to come back for another trip in the future! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to a traveling couple, and felt the value for the price was phenomenal!
Dear Brandon and Heather,

Time Well Spent!
My husband and I took a long weekend and went to our favorite spot in the world.. Pensacola! This Carriage House is a must for those looking to just unwind and relax! Extremely clean, comfortable, and very well decorated, with all the amenities. The owners were such gracious host, you’ll want to spend time talking to them as if they were family. I cannot say enough for this place! Impressive! We will be back!
Leanne and Craig, Thank you for your kind review! We really enjoy hosting and sharing our favorite hometown with new friends, and hope you will come back again!
Amazing Rental with Friendly Owners
The rental surpassed my expectations. I felt at home and relaxed. The owners made sure I had everything I needed and were very respectful of my privacy. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone in the future. I will definitely look to stay here before anywhere else again!
Ps- the shower in the cute, modern rental is Amazing and the bed and pillows made it hard to want to get up each morning, even with the beach so close by!
Thanks for the terrific review Melissa!
One of the best!
Jon and Maureen are the perfect hosts. They welcomed us into their apartment, and it was nothing short the beautiful pictures shown. It's location is between downtown and the beach which worked perfectly for us. We honestly could not have asked for a better place to stay, it is so peaceful during the day as well as at night. I highly recommend staying here, I've told so many family members and friends!! Their place deserves much more than a 5 Star rating! We will definitely be returning for our honeymoon, and we cannot wait to return!!
Thomas and Lindsey, you were the best guests ever! It will be lovely to have you down again. Thanks for the great review!
