This cozy home was built in the 1920's, and totally remodeled and renovated in 2007. The kitchen is large and fully equipped, the dining room seats up to 10 and lends itself well to small parties that often flow out through the kitchen to the back patio. The house is close to the hub of activities in Pensacola, and only 20 minutes from the beach without traffic.
Festivals, night clubs, churches, restaurants, the harbor, Wahoo's stadium, the Saenger and Pensacola Little theater are downtown, and the eclectic downtown is always bustling with activities. There is a market every Saturday on Palafox. There are shops and restaurants all along Palafox. The shops begin less than one mile from the house. We walk down all the time, with our neighbors, but we have noticed that our customers are not accustomed to walking . If you would rather take an Uber to get to the shops, it is about a $5 ride. Parking downtown is also easy, unless there are many events going on at one time. I dont believe you can get a house closer to the downtown area. The neighborhood is filled with big homes, bungalows and cute shotgun houses mixed with businesses. The downtown is going through a revival, and many houses here have been fixed up over the years, and there are even some new houses being built. The lot across the street has just been bought and a house is starting to be built there. It is so nice to see people taking an interest in the historic district again! There is a really nice park right next to the house, where children can play.
The basement fitness room has balls, bands, a punching bag, two pieces of equipment and a large rocking horse for fun. There is an outdoor shower and changing area to enjoy on warm days. In the basement we keep 2 small cots that could accomodate two small children if necessary.
The beds are very comfortable. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, and a small, private, sitting room/TV room with a pull out bed for 1. The second bedroom has the 2 twin beds and also houses the Internet connection and a TV. The livingroom has a pull out couch, if needed, and there are 2 cots in the basement. If you have more than 4 people, the extras will have to sleep on the pull out or the cots. Though the house is not suitable for very small children, those over 6 will enjoy the basement and the huge rocking horse in the basement.
My daughter, Susanna, manages the property, and lives right around the corner, if you have questions. Towels, sheets, pillows and blankets are provided, as well as dish and laundry soap. Please put down the correct amount of people. If there are more than 4, I have to plan cleaning accordingly. All payments are through a credit card, through VRBO. Please, no groups under 25 years old. Brand new air conditioner!! There is plenty of street parking in front of the house. The city came and fixed the sidewalks, at the driveway, so there is a slight rise that very low cars may hit. Please park on the street if you are unsure. There is enough parking for about 6 cars. Please don't park on the grass.
