About Timothy McEvoy

Hi, I'm Tim and I 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 and remodel everything. The goal has been to use construction materials that will stand up to wind and water. Then a beautiful custom shaped 40' x 20' gunite pool was installed and is the largest private pool on the beach. The house is fully furnished with all the amenities and is your home away from home during your stay!

Timothy McEvoy purchased this house in 2006

Why Timothy McEvoy chose Toilla Segunda

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 or take in a movie from one of the 3 large screen TVs 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!

A great property for our Thanksgiving family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and very spacious for our family of 10 adults and 2 children. It was very close to the beach and had a beautiful pool that the kids were able to enjoy even in November. The house was incredibly well stocked with everything we needed for a great vacation. The kitchen had everything I could think of and the garage had a large supply of bikes, toys, strollers, beach chairs. There was an incredible toy closet that our 3 year old grandaughter enjoyed. The basement with a full kitchen, bedroom and beautiful large bath and shower was a great place for our single sons to hang out and enjoy the football games.

We had a little trouble having adequate hot water when everyone needed to shower, but otherwise, we had a perfect vacation. My family wants to rent the same house for next Thanksgiving.

Amazing Home, Pool, & Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Totally Tan & Sandy for a week. The house was perfect for us. It was clean, spacious, & had everything we needed. We appreciated the number & size of the bathrooms. The basement fridge provided extra space for groceries & the kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. So many additional large items were available too (bikes, boogie boards, highchair, rock-n-play, beach chairs, etc) Although we didn't need the "baby" items, you can tell that Tim & Barbara strive to make your traveling easier by not having to bring these things. The kids loved the huge pool & hot tub. The backyard gate gave us quick/easy access to the beach. The beach was beautiful! It was not crowded. We knew we would have space at any time of the day that we went to the beach. This will be the first house I check for availability when planning our next vacation to Pensacola. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. We created many memories & truly enjoyed our vacation!!

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!
