About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

SANTA ROSA MAGIC - ON BEAUTIFUL PENSACOLA BEACH, not across the street from the beach and not in a tower: this exquisitely decorated gulf view beach home is located in Port Side Villas, a gated community of luxury duplex town homes. Port Side Villas is just steps away from the tranquil waters of the Gulf of Mexico and eight secluded miles of the pristine white beaches of Gulf Islands National Seashore and historic Fort Pickens. This is the “best kept secret on the Gulf Coast”.

Leave your watch in your travel bag. The best part of this week is that you have ample time to do absolutely nothing. Kick back in your sling chair with your favorite chilled beverage, dig your toes into the powdery white sands, and wait … for the magic of Santa Rosa Island to capture you. Watch your children as they build sand castles, net tiny sea creatures, dodge the rolling surf, and squeal in delight as the sandpipers dare them to “catch us if you can”. Bait your surf rig and catch a pompano for the grill or just stroll along the water’s edge, but remember to pause occasionally and watch. Sea turtles, porpoises, mantas, heron, pelicans and hundreds of Mother Nature’s fowl make this protected sanctuary their home. This is what memories are made of.

When the urge to mingle becomes irresistible, walk the recreation path or catch the island Trolley to boardwalk shops, fine restaurants, nightclubs, charter fishing, and an assortment of action beach rentals. Just over the bridge is the delightful Zoo at Gulf Breeze and ten minutes further the City of Pensacola offers more fine dining, shopping, art galleries, and historical sites to explore. If golf is your passion there are nine challenging courses nearby to test your game. Don’t miss the National Museum of Naval Aviation at Pensacola Naval Air Station. It may be your most pleasant surprise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Dan grew up in the East Hill area Of Pensacola; living there with his parents and two brothers for 15 wonderful years. In 1961 the family moved to Denver Colorado. Though he embraced his parents decision to return to their roots in the Rockies, Dan never forgot his 'Huck Finn' childhood adventures and close friends in Florida. It took 30 years but Dan finally made his way back to the Gulf Coast and fell in love again with Pensacola and the beach. Over the next seven years he made numerous visits and finally purchased his Port Side Villas unit in 1999. Shortly thereafter Dan met Jo and quickly introduced her to Pensacola. Two years later they celebrated their wedding day on the beach in front of their Santa Rosa Magic! Today, Jo and Dan still call Colorado home but love to spend many joyful, relaxing weeks each year on the beach in Pensacola enjoying their little piece of heaven!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Portside Villas is a very unique complex and perhaps the only neighborhood of it's kind on the Florida Panhandle. From Alabama to Apalachicola it is difficult to find another duplex community of custom town homes, located directly on the gulf, immediately adjacent to 8 miles of undeveloped National Seashore, and located within 30 minutes of an international airport. It is totally a one of a kind jewel!
