About MaryAnn Phillips

We are Jim & MaryAnn and we manage this home for our family. We built the home in 1997 after losing the previous one to Hurricane Opal in 1995. We live close by and visit the property regularly. This is a great destination spot, and we do everything we can to insure your comfort.

We do operate a beach management company, however this is our personal, family beach house!

MaryAnn Phillips purchased this house in 1997

Why MaryAnn Phillips chose Villa Primera

It's gorgeous! The location is close to convenience & liquor store. You are 'on the beach' have a hot outdoor shower, and an elevator!!!!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy not using the car, even the morning paper is a 3 minute walk. During peak season the trolley service is a huge benefit, especially if there is 'liquid sunshine'! There are restaurants, bars, convenience and liquor stores and unique souvenir shops all a short walk away. The fishing pier is close enough to walk to as well, and they rent poles, tackle and sell bait.

Great for 2 families with kids

  • 5 of 5

Great place. No need to leave for a week once you have groceries. Beautiful beach access, nice deck and porch swing, welcome basket, games for activities indoors, toys for the beach. Ideal for 2 or 3 families with kids. MaryAnn was very responsive to our needs and even offered to mail home a forgotten lovie after we checked out. Exterior Locks stick a bit from the salty air. otherwise the house is amazing — even better than photos.

Beautiful, comfortable and perfect

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute being at this lovely home in Pensacola. We were in walking distance to the store, favorite breakfast restaurant and shops. The beach was gorgeous and so close to the home. I would come back and stay again in an instant. Thanks to the owners for a very hospitable welcome with a basket of snacks that was perfect for our teenagers who are always hungry! Can't wait to go back!

Perfect Beach Getaway with Friends

  • 5 of 5

To celebrate my 60th birthday we invited friends from out of town to spend 4 nights in MaryAnne's property. It was just perfect for a number of reasons. We loved having 3 bedrooms with comfortable king beds, two of which had a private full bath and overlooked the Gulf of Mexico. There was a "kids" room that could sleep 6 but we didn't use it. The internet and TV worked great. The view from the large deck was just stunning and the house was a very short and easy walk to the beach. And even though we were away from the main drag it was a short and pleasant walk to the beach pier. The kitchen was very well stocked with supplies which we loved as we mostly ate in. The washer dryer room had beach towels and everything was neat and clean. Best, there was an elevator which made it easy to get my dog with a bed knee up and down. MaryAnn was very easy to get in touch when we had a few questions. Overall, can't wait to go back to this spacious and lovely beach house with more of our friends and family!

Amazing house. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week. The house had everything you could possibly need and then some. The elevator was so helpful for my parents.

Mary Ann is an attentive and responsive owner. We loved sunrises and sunsets on the back deck, great food near by, watching the blue Angels practice, and hunting for shells in the beach. Before we left everyone in my family was asking when are we coming back?

Owner's Response: We love to know that your family was comfortable at our house, it really is the experience we strive to provide! The unobstructed sunrises and sunsets are by far my favorite features, as well as the wildlife and ever changing view! We will be looking forward to seeing y'all again!

A wonderful beachfront house!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are fairly new to VRBO but had a good experience on our first rental (in Maui) so we decided to give it another try. We wanted a beachfront house within 8-9 hours from our home in the Houston area so the drive would be tolerable. Our requirements were to have enough room for ourselves, our 3 boys and their wives, our grandson, and our little Yorkshire Terrier. After all the filters were added we came across this house and it ticked all the boxes. It's large, it has two masters and two additional bedrooms. The house even has an elevator that makes the luggage move in and move out a breeze. This house is well equipped for a large crowd and the oversized deck is perfect if you like to eat outside and listen to the waves. This house is within walking distance of the fishing pier as well as some nice beach restaurants. This beachfront house exceeded all of our expectations which made for a wonderful family vacation.

Two of our sons were sitting on the deck one afternoon when the Blue Angels did a flyby right above them (seemed like they were only 200 Ft above the beach). They will remember that moment the rest of their lives!! I would suggest that if you have time you might consider visiting the Naval Air Museum which is not too far away. You might also check the Blue Angel practice schedule which is an hour of pure excitement at the Naval Air Museum.

The beach is beautiful and the water is crystal clear. The beach isn't crowded and the kids found a wide assortment of sea shells. MaryAnn was wonderful to work with throughout the rental process and answered all of our questions about the area in a timely manner. We will definitely stay at this house again in the future!!

Owner's Response: Oh, Stuart,we are so glad your family felt at home & comfortable during your stay. We are always trying to anticipate the needs of our guests and solely focus on perfecting the "experience" . How awesome your boys were right there for the Blues fly-over. As their "home " we are so lucky they think of our guests when heading into base as it's always a thrill to see them come soaring out of nowhere. We also get the same treatment from the USAF Thunderbird's several times a year. We can't wait to welcome your return, we have a return guest discount to encourage you! Stay well, and thanks again for the kind words of encouragement!

Perfect Stay with FULL amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, my parents and our 2 fur babies had a WONDERFUL stay! The house is comfortable and fully stocked (aside from food of course) with everything you may need! MaryAnn was more than helpful in getting me connected with a store with a sand wheelchair and the house elevator was a major bonus! The kids found games and puzzles in the house to play with, binoculars for dolphin viewing and plenty of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, toys etc to appease us all. No complaints from my crowd aside from wanting to stay longer. If we head this way again we will absolutely stay at MaryAnn's place!
