Villa Segunda House Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 30-34)

810 Ariola Drive, Pensacola Beach

This is not your typical beach rental!

Our executive home is a fantastic 7 FULL bedroom, 4 bath direct gulf front home. Unbelievably we also have a separate loft to serve as an 8th sleeping or secondary living area. Or, as an option... you can simply close one door and transform this home into a wonderful 6 bedroom home with 1 master suite and 1 complete mother in law suite! There are actually options!

You will lavish in over 4,500 square feet of comfort and be captivated by the bounty of panoramic glass. Our home provides 2 story glass windows, not found in the typical single story rental. It will take your breath away. Be spellbound by the exquisite island water views from every single room! No one will sacrifice the water views, the sounds, the scents.

Unlike typical smaller homes, you will love our exceptional spacious dining room where you can share special meal times....together.

As host you'll love our master suite with garden tub, shower, double vanity, walk in closet and french doors overlooking the beachfront deck. Relax on our deck while watching your children and pets playing safely in their own fenced in beach playground. What's more, we are within 1 block from both a playground and tennis courts.

A rainy day is no problem. Kick back and enjoy your favorite show, DVD. or streaming with numerous TV's. We also provide stereos, games and welcome workaholics. The home is fully equipped with hi speed WiFi network. Want to get out? We are only blocks from the shops, restaurants and main activity core of Pensacola Beach. Seasonal free trolley is available.

This extraordinary home is ideal for large families, as a business retreat or for any special event including weddings or reunions where gracious southern living directly on the beach is commanded.

Plenty of parking

About betsy robins

This is my home and I take it seriously. If there was ever to be a complaint I want to know about it!

I am actively involved in the management and in keeping an eye on things but reservations are made through a professional Agency who has far more resources and can provide more immediate service than I am able.

betsy robins purchased this house in 2005

Why betsy robins chose Pensacola Beach

Love Pensacola Beach and especially this location. No high rises in our area, yet close to all central activities. Love being by the playground, trolley stop and tennis courts. It is also THE perfect location for people watching.

My home is located on a large access which provides an expansive view and significant space between you and the house next door.

It is also the access that the fire department utilizes for rescues enabling eye witness views to emergency operations.

What makes this house unique

Our home is large, comfortable. One of the few places large groups can get together without feeling like sardines! This is a home that was built for living comfortably unlike the typical rental where the emphasis is on packing in the most people possible.

Large Family

  • 5 of 5

Great for large families. Only steps to the beach and after spending all day at the beach, there were enough bathrooms and showers for everyone to quickly clean up for Dinner. Evenings on the deck with the stars overhead and the gulf waves crashing in the background made this the perfect house for relaxing during daytime and nighttime. While the adults were on the deck, through the large windows, we could still observe the smaller children in the living area watching movies and playing with their electronics. We will return.

Perfect Getaway for Large Families

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible. Very well maintained, spacious, gorgeous views...I could go on and on! There was ample room for our large family group - everything we needed was at our disposal, and the owner is a wonderful person. I look forward to spending more time here in the future!

Great Rental for a Crowd

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented this house for a family Christmas, we had people from all over the country. The house was spacious and comfortable, the view was amazing, and the owner was very helpful. It was amazing to be steps away from the ocean and to be somewhere that felt like home.

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for the perfect beach house to gather as a family to celebrate an important event for one of our family members. This house was just what we were looking for! It had 'lots of rooms to accommodate our large group and the amenities supported the activities and numbers in our group. For example, two refrigerators, two grills, several large tables to accommodate everyone sitting down to enjoy meals together as a group. We never felt like we were on top of each other. In fact, the open floor plan made everyone feel so comfortable which only further supported our ability to interact and have fun. I would definitely recommend this house to others. And - to top it off - the owner could not have been more pleasant to work with. She was very friendly, accommodating, reasonable with her "customer comes first" attitude. An overall A+ experience.

What A Family Gathering Spot !

  • 5 of 5

We annually gather as an extended family at the beach, a tradition that we all eagerly await each year. This gorgeous home was so conducive for our main purpose, togetherness. The wall of windows overlooking the beach in the living and breakfast table area as well as the feeling of openness provide the perfect situation for us all to be together for games, watching movies and sports programs, in addition to the meals that we enjoy together in the accommodating (seats up to 18) dining room that often became our game room. Our clan included 28 for several days this year including small grandchildren, young people and their friends, young parents and us four "seasoned" beachgoers.

As you can tell, this is one of our favorite houses, partly due to the fact that the necessary effort is expended to keep it in good shape; we just returned for our third stay. Of course there will always be a missing item that occurs with a rental house but just ask "and ye shall receive", and promptly too. If you have the opportunity to deal with the owner you will find her to be very responsible and trustworthy.

Great home for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family has been 'beaching it' every summer for many years. And this is the best house we've ever found to accomodate the variety of needs of our group of many age-groups - [great location] relatively secluded beach, close to amenities, 5 minute drive to grocery store [and great house] large living room open to two floors, large dining room for family dinners, large deck overlooking the beach. The owner is very responsive. For those of us with young kids as well as our more 'seasoned' family members, this house has met everyone's needs. Thanks for having us

Our location is perfect, we are so close to the activities, yet offer the peace of a residential setting. The beach is for walking! Most core activities are within 6 blocks. Alternatively, seasonal free trolley service will take you to all the core activities including fine restaurants, shops, beach side pavilions and Jimmy Buffets new Margaritaville. Most unusual is the fact that every single room in our home provides full, gorgeous water views. Unlike most homes, our main living area features two story walls of glass enabling unsurpassed ocean views. All rooms are water view.
