Awesome place to host a wedding

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. We hosted my daughter's wedding here. The beach is breathe taking with a sugar white sand beach and underneath the beach house is an amazing place to host a wedding reception. The house has everything you can think of. The caters really loved the kitchen and the extra prep room. The new pool is awesome. We all spent lots of time there. I just can't say enough about how this beach house really made our stay and my daughter's wedding the best ever. All the guest loved the house and is still talking about it. We all spent lots of time out on the front decks watching the ocean and at night we spent time on the back deck watching amazing sunsets. A great time was had by all. The owner was very helpful with referring venues and went out of their way to make sure everything was ok. I would highly recommend this beach house for a wedding or even a vacation. I am hoping to return in two years to celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary here. Thanks again for allowing us to rent this wonderful house. We will never forget what an amazing time we had here.

We took a long weekend girls trip to Pensacola and stayed at Tan and Broke and we had the best time! The House was absolutely amazing. The kitchen and living room area were perfect for entertaining. We had 10 people total and never felt crowded. The pool is perfect to come back and relax after the beach, the beach was a short 2 minute walk from the house so was perfect to walk back and get out of the sun for a minute. The beach access isn’t near any hotels so the beach isn’t very crowded either. Sherie, the owner, was so accommodating. We had a slight problem with the front door lock when we first got there and the AC one night, she was there to fix both problems immediately! You are a short Uber ride to all the beach bars and restaurants and only a few minutes longer to downtown. Highly recommend staying here! We will be back!

Very nice!!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Tan and Broke. We loved the fact that it was so accessible to the private beach. The house was nice, kitchen was awesome for cooking big meals and well equipped. However, due the fact that the house is in constant use, I found it to be slightly abused by privious tenants. The rattan rug in the living room was shredding apart and I was constantly worried someone would get a foot caught in a fray. The mattresses on the both pullout couches need to be replaced, as they are not very comfortable and should not be counted as a sufficient sleeping area. There was mold that needs to be addressed also. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the area and the home. Would stay again if the some of the issues I addressed were met. Thank you so much!

Great place! Beautiful house and beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic house. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back. It was just our family of 5 (3 kids-10,15,15) so the house was more than big enough for us. It was beautifully decorated and we felt right at home. We enjoyed the DVD's and board games they had available.

We were impressed with how amazing the beach is there and we have visited the area before. Very clear water and clean beach, that was not crowded at all. We felt like we had it to ourselves most of the time. The kids loved having the pool available as well.

We have absolutely no complaints!

Beautiful beach house just steps away from the beach. Fully equipped with ANYTHING we needed. Except for maybe toilet paper, which I didn’t expect it to be stocked with. Hudge kitchen. Two master suits up stairs. Two bunk rooms with Jack and Jill bathroom down stairs. Media nook with sleeper sofa, and sleeper sofa in living room. Bar room and added plus with ice maker. Two refrigerators. Laundry room. Balcony’s on every level. Pool area also.

The home was beautiful with plenty of room and all the conveniences of home.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed two wonderful weeks with our daughters, their husbands and our grandchildren. The home is convenient to the beach and the pool was refreshing afterward. The owners were available at all times and made our experience even more pleasurable. This was our second stay here and we will definitely be back. Beautiful decor!! Everything you need is there!
