3000 S.F. Loft Featured on HGTV's Rezoned

Our home is located in Pensacola's original water company, an industrial brick building with steel trusses, brick walls, arched windows, and concrete ceilings. It was built in 1907. It has been featured on HGTV's Rezoned. Our loft is on the second floor and is reached by stairs. It is not accessible for those who have mobility disabilities. The space is light filled with two clerestory windows that run along the length of the building. The ceiling height ranges from 13 to 25 feet. There is an enormous great room. There are three bedrooms and two baths on this floor.

There are two other loft apartments and an office in this building as well. If you need additional space, it is possible to rent the downstairs area too. Downstairs there are four additional bedrooms, two baths, and a great room with a pool table. There is also a kitchenette.

Our building is located on the north edge of downtown and the east edge of the North Hill Preservation District, in the Long Hollow Neighborhood. Across the street is the First City Art Center where you can take a class and the Long Hollow Neighborhood Park with a labyrinth and a sculpture park. Palafox Street, Pensacola's main street, is 1 1/2 blocks away. There are many restaurants, music venues, bars, and parks nearby. It is 20 minutes by car to Pensacola Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The Naval Aviation museum is about 25 minutes by car.

                                                          Great event venue but not a comfortable place to stay

                                                          Mi Sou H.

                                                          The space is beautiful and very open. There is a lot of seating as well. It was more than enough room for our small event and can accommodate a much larger party. However, the sleeping space was not so great. There is essentially no privacy (partial walls but no ceilings), you can hear everyone going to the bathroom, showering, snoring, etc. The building is right across the street from the train tracks and trains run constantly...all through the night. We did not get a good night’s sleep and I wouldn’t consider myself a light sleeper. There is also some other kind of venue across the street and the second night we stayed, there was a live band outside that could be heard very clearly. Luckily they called it quits before 10 pm. Also, all the towels and sheets had an odor. Like a damp/mildewy smell. The bed in one of the rooms was very hard and uncomfortable (also very low to the ground). The bed in the master bedroom was very high, had trouble climbing up into it.

                                                          I would not recommend the place for sleeping, especially for the price. But it is a very nice venue for an informal event.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thanks so much for your input as we've only rented our space a handful of time at this point and appreciate the feedback. In response, we've resolved the issues with the washer and dryer and the hard mattress. We've also added a white noise machine in the bedrooms to block out the noise of the train or other guests. We will make our listing description more clear that our ceilings are 25 feet in some place with 8 foot high walls in the bedrooms which are not soundproof. To clarify, they are completely private rooms in every other way. I'm terribly sorry the noise affected your stay. It is very unusual for the the art center across the street to have an evening with a band and we will do our best to notify future guests of such events. Thanks again for your feedback. All the best, Michelle.

                                                          Thank you!

                                                          Had an awesome experience with the owner. Will definitely rent here every year!

                                                          We had a wonderful time!

                                                          Ariana M.Houston,TX

                                                          Great, comfortable place to stay. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the owner, Michelle. We felt like home as soon as we stepped in. Accommodations were excellent! Our room was clean and comfortable.

                                                          Michelle was friendly, had great recommendations, and was always willing to help in any way possible. 15 min drive to the beaches and some truly awesome neighborhood eateries.

                                                          Our experience was nothing less than exceptional! We would definitely stay there again if we ever go back to Pensacola.
