About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 37)

810 Ariola Drive, Pensacola Beach

This is not your typical beach rental!

This executive home is a fantastic 7 FULL bedroom, 4 bath direct gulf front home.

Provided are 2 story glass windows, not found in the typical single story rental. They 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.

A bounty of space is afforded the entire family to spread out and relax. The brick foyer leads up to the main living area. Here you’ll find an open floor plan with two story ceilings, large flat screen TV panoramic windows, and plenty of comfortable seating to enjoy the view, including a sleeper sofa.

The large, eat-in galley style kitchen has lots of prep area, two full size refrigerators, breakfast bar and kitchen table. Seating for 10.

The exceptionally spacious dining room will seat 18 comfortably.

Bedrooms 1 and 2 are located off the kitchen and share a hall bath. Bedroom 1 offers 2 full beds, TV and gulf views. Bedroom 2 has one king bed and large TV. There is also a laundry room with sink on this side of the house.

Located on the opposite side of the living room, the master suite offers a king bed, a twin-sized sleeper sofa, private bath with oversized shower, garden tub, and beautiful gulf views.

The top floor of my home features a loft area with sleeper sofa and a twin-sized ottoman pullout overlooking the living area. Four more bedrooms are located on this level.

Bedroom 4 has two queen sized beds, TV, gulf views, and a full bath that also opens onto the hall. Bedroom 5 is a bunk room with 2 sets of full over full bunk beds, one with a twin trundle, and a large TV. Bedroom 6 has 2 queen beds, TV and a twin-sized ottoman pullout. Bedroom 7 has a queen bed, a full daybed with twin trundle, large TV and gulf views. All three of these bedrooms share a hall bath.

Other amenities include the upper gulf side deck area with a grill, Adirondack chairs, and a large outdoor dining table. This deck overlooks the beach and a fenced area allowing guests to watch their children or dogs playing safely below.

Again, unusual in beach properties is a newly" finished" downstairs area that provides covered lounging as well as plenty of space for events such as wedding receptions.

Truly exceptional.

There is plenty of covered parking, an outdoor shower, and a fenced in beach area that opens directly onto the beach,

My home is ideal for large families who enjoy vacationing together, weddings, events or family reunions.

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 Villa Segunda

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 cramped. 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.

I recently looked over the reviews and am humbled by the comments. Thank you, all. It is gratifying to know that I've helped, in a small part, to help you create a wonderful memory.

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.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

30th Anniversary

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented 810 Ariola to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary with our families. The home was wonderful for such a large group and the location was phenomenal!

The size of the dining room table was amazing and so wonderful to have when it came it time for everyone to eat. It helped to have the kitchen table as well. I do wish the front bedroom on the main floor had two queen beds versus two full beds but we made it work.

We had encountered some issues with water coming into the master bedroom during our stay due to Tropical Storm Cindy. We contacted Paradise Beach Homes and they responded to our call very quickly. We also had an issue with the fire alarm while my elderly Mom was at the house which scared her. Paradise Beach Homes called me right away about the alarm and came to the house to check it out. Besides the rainy weather, we all truly enjoyed our stay! Thank you Betsy for letting us rent your home!

Owner's Response: Hi Molly, I thought about you all week and felt just awful for the weather you experienced. There is nothing like a tropical storm to bring out any possible leaks or electrical issues on the beach and I am so sorry that you were the recipient of both. It is a harsh environment, to be sure! Thank you for understanding and for notifying us so promptly about the problems. Thank you, too for your positive remarks concerning my home. I only wish I could promise better weather for such great guests! Molly, It hit me hard to have less than a 5* review. Really! I've talked with the Security system people who have assured me that I am on a consistent maintenance schedule. My trusted contractor had just finished sealing all windows/doors, but tropicals are always an unknown. I am so sorry for any inconveniences. Betsy

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.
