The rest of the yard is your own private sandbox. The kids love it! Please take care not to throw sand or shells in the pool, however! There is an outdoor shower on the patio. Just added a sand volleyball/badminton court!

About Barbara

We came from NJ to Pensacola in 2005 to work at a radio station and discovered the beach! This house was about to go into foreclosure due to damage from Hurricane Ivan. The first project was to raise half the house to construct an ICF foundation. Our goal has been to use construction materials that will stand up to wind and water. Next we had a pool installed; what a challenge! This is our primary winter home and we have tried to make it a home away from home for our guests.

Barbara purchased this house in 2006

Why Barbara chose Pensacola Beach

Pensacola Beach is one of the finest white sand beaches in the world. Our guests tell us it surpasses many Caribbean and Jamaican beaches. The sand is soft and the water clear. In 2015 Pensacola Beach was ranked #13 out of the top 25 beaches anywhere! And the Gulf Islands National Seashore, which Pensacola Beach is part of, was ranked #5. The beaches maintain their pristine and beautiful qualities.

What makes this house unique

Pensacola has over 300 sunny days per year. The house is light, bright and airy. Biking is great on the quiet roads, taking a slow look around at the changing landscape. Walking on the beach is pure pleasure. You can make sand castles with your children or grandchildren on the beach or in the yard and then cool off in the sparkling pool (after using the outdoor shower). Relax in the hot tub in the evening. Prepare your delicious dinner (doesn't everything taste better in the fresh air?) on our 7 burner stainless grill then just relax or take in a movie from one of our 3 large screen TV's or just laze around on the deck or pool patio having great conversations with friends and family. You will never forget the memories of your days on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a perfect few days and we hope to come again. Great TV's to watch games on. Your home is beautiful and has everything - next time we won't pack so much. Thank you!

Perfect, clean, comfy, well stocked beautiful home, for extended family stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a busy but relaxing week with extended family members... all in town for our son's wedding. Our families in all rented 4 beach homes and 1 condo. Everyone agreed......Totally Tan and Sandy was the best of all!! (We knew that early on when the groom's beach house members kept crashing our home cause we had the best pool & hot tub.) Everyone had their own space, comfy beds, plenty of common space to share, bicycles, beach wagons & toys, pool toys/rafts, & seating. It was so wonderful that except for wedding doings, we only ate out once! Home was clean and beautiful - owner Barbara is very personable! We cannot wait to return!!

Best Beach Vacation Home in all of Pensacola!

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot say enough great things about this beach vacation house. The location is absolutely perfect. Just a short walk to the beach, which is also absolutely perfect. Every time we went to the beach, there were only just a few other families out there. So, we always had room to place our tent and set up the beach chairs without having to walk far down the beach. I've stayed in hotels next to the beach before, and I really can't see myself doing that again after experiencing the beauty of having your own private house with your own private beach.

Also, the owners were very nice and always helpful. Barbara always responded so quickly to any emails about the house, and we got everything set up and ready to go so easily. On our check in day, Tim met us at the house and gave us a great tour of the property as well as provided some helpful suggestions for shopping in the area. The house was very neat and clean when we arrived, so all they ask is that you do your best to leave it clean when you depart to help out the cleaning crew as much as possible.

My family spent a week at this house, and we barely scratched the surface of things to do while we were there. We didn't even get a chance to try out the amazing hot tub, mainly because of the heat, but we do hope to give it a try on our next visit. The pool is honestly the best pool of all the Pensacola Beach homes. There is so much space in it, and they even have sand around it! The bikes in the garage were a great surprise too. We had 3 little ones on our trip, and they really didn't want to leave when it was time to go. By the end of the trip, I had lost count of how many times my entire family thanked me for finding this house for our vacation. We can't wait to come back to Totally Tan and Sandy some day soon!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we thought it would be then some! We had our kids and grandkids (4 under the age of 5) and it was wonderful! All you really need is to grocery shop and bring your suitcase, so many things provided that we actually packed but didn't need. Pool is perfect, lots of room to move around and be together comfortably. We will be back!

Perfection on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Pensacola Beach for over 20 years and Totally Tan and Sandy is one of our favorite houses to visit. It is well stocked, extremely clean, and at a perfect location. The owners are great and very accommodating. Can't wait until our next visit!

wow

  • 5 of 5

I hate to give this a great review because I do not want to share to the point that when I want to book it will not be available. This place is great. There is absolutely nothing I would say that the owners could do to improve this beautiful home. Everything you could possible need is there and more. We have eleven in our bunch and they range in age from 2 to 64. We have been coming for quite a few years and we always either celebrate Grandpas birthday or Erins. My grandchildren swim, play tennis, volleyball, ride bikes and basketball. The home is very spacious and oh so comfy. The pool is fabulous! The beach is very close and very private. I just booked for the next year and can not wait.
