About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 9 (6 adults)

Get a taste of classic beach style with this cozy rental just steps from the Gulf of Mexico! Built in 1954, this one-story, dog-friendly home boasts a delightful sun deck with fantastic views of the water and enough space for the whole family to enjoy.

This is the spot for you if you're looking to get away from it all. The house is located on Pensacola Beach, 10 miles south of Pensacola and accessible by a toll bridge and scenic drive out across the warm waters of the Gulf. Bring a book, a beach towel, and your swimsuit, and get ready to relax among the sand and surf. Beach chairs and umbrellas are on us - feel free to borrow them from the house.

From the moment you arrive, you'll want to kick off your shoes and hit the beach. With the dunes just 150 feet from your front door, you'll be at the water's edge in no time. And the rooftop sun deck offers phenomenal 360-degree views of the island and surrounding waters, so you can get soak up some vitamin D without even needing to leave the property!

Inside, the house combines a vintage charm with modern conveniences. Spread out on one of the two comfy couches to watch TV or play a board game, or hook up the PlayStation 3 for a family competition. The attached kitchen comes fully equipped with pots, pans, and all the appliances you'll need to cook some delicious evening meals - including a gas grill out back for a beachside barbecue! Take your dinner up to the deck for a truly unforgettable dining experience.

With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, this rental is ideal for a family or multi-family vacation as it sleeps up to nine guests (six adults maximum, please). The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a private bathroom, while two other bedrooms are furnished with queen beds. The fourth bedroom has two sets of bunk beds for the kids. And with a small nightly pet fee the house is suitable for dogs, so your furry friends can enjoy romping along the beach as much as you!

Although this part of Santa Rosa Island has grown slightly more developed in recent years, it remains fairly isolated and the perfect spot for a quiet beach getaway. The Emerald Coast features some of the most breathtaking beaches in the entire country, with pure white sand and gently lapping waves. Restaurants and grocery stores are limited on the island, so we recommend stocking up on food in Pensacola or Gulf Breeze before you arrive. That way, you can enjoy your idyllic stay uninterrupted.

If you do feel like a change of pace, there's plenty to explore back on the mainland. Explore beautiful downtown Pensacola, with its southern-themed food trucks, Crepe Myrtle-lined streets, and laid-back atmosphere. Step back in time with Historic Pensacola Village, a restored living history museum with costumed interpreters and hands-on exhibits. Or catch a local baseball game at the Pensacola Bayfront Stadium, home to the Blue Wahoos.

Blue skies, soft sand, and the sound of the waves - what else could you want? Book now to begin your spectacular ocean escape!

Snowbirds welcome! If you're looking for a long-term stay during fall and winter, give us a call for our special rates.

Best bang for buck.

  • 5 of 5

We've been to a few different places in this same area over the years and had a fantastic time. Super close to the beach, plenty of room for house full of people. Dogs enjoyed sun bathing on the porch but yard is typical beach mess. Had everything we needed and and best part we all had a great time for an affordable price.

2.5 stars: Old property in a good location with some issues

  • 2 of 5

First off, the unit was in a good location, about a mile away from the Casino Beach area and easy to find. It was on a quiet street just a few steps away from the Gulf. 4 bedrooms makes for a decent amount of space for several people. The deck has nice views and a good stiff breeze. The back patio was a nice spot to sit in the sun. It would have been nice to spend more time outside but it was a little too chilly in early February for us.

Due to some delays my husband and I arrived much later than anticipated, but had no difficulties entering the unit with the provided instructions/lock box key. Unfortunately this is where the excitement of a quick weekend away ended. We found the unit to be in need of a deep cleaning. The floors were in dire need of a sweep and mop, as the amount of dog fur and sand made walking around barefoot absolutely disgusting. Secondly, we found hairs/furs of various lengths in most of the beds. We weren't sure if the sheets were actually cleaned and it was residue from a dirty washer or if the cleaning staff just needed glasses.

Given the age of the unit, I would never expect it to be completely spotless, but things like sheets and linens I expect to be clean. Given the late hour we decided to stay up and wash sheets rather than attempt to find another place to stay at such short notice.

Side note: the table is unfinished wood, which I find somewhat unsanitary (crumbs in cracks, impossible to wipe down well).

The only reason I give this review 2.5 stars is because once I contacted the rental management company the next morning they were able to make some adjustments and make up for the poor conditions we encountered on arrival and I was satisfied enough to stay the remaining 2 nights of my booking.

If some maintenance issues (extremely loud bathroom vent, shower head sprays everywhere, sediment in tap water) and more routine deep cleaning of the property can be achieved it would be a serviceable place to stay, however I doubt we will book this property again.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry this stay was not more enjoyable. We have followed-up with housekeeping, and maintenance will address what they can. Thank you!
