Why The Owner chose Villa Primera

I have always thought of Pensacola Beach as a desirable location for a second home. In the early 1970's, as an investment project, I purchased several houses in this area for renovating and for reselling. This particular home was one I was unable to part with as it is Gulf front located and near many activities I enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

I enjoy walking on the beach, beautiful sunsets, nearby shopping and dining. I purchased two bicycles for sightseeing.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a wonderful time at Sunset Cottage. The home is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. It's like a home away from home! Just a short walk out the back door and over a sand dune to the Gulf, where my son picked up every single sand-dollar he could find! The cottage is off the beaten path yet very close to Pensacola Beach attractions. This was a much needed vacation for my family, and Sunset Cottage was the perfect place. Thanks to Sharon and Charles!

Look No Further AWESOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome vacation at Sunset Cottage!! This home is extremely comfortable & beautifully decorated. The beach was incredible & we loved having our little privacy away from the hotels. Love, love, love having a full size washer & dryer! I know that sounds crazy, I mean, after all we are on vacation, but trust me, being able to wash your beach towels everyday is a pleasure. Great location too! The only thing that's further away is the grocery store, but there is a mini mart on PB. From the get go this entire experience was A+! Sharon is Amazing to work with, home is Fab & your vacay will be Spectacular!!! Well worth every single penny!!! If you're going to rent a beach house, rent this one!!

Wow oh Wow

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 had an absolutely magnificent stay at Sunset Cottage. The home has everything needed for a great beach stay. Plenty of room to hang out, comfortable bedding, plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas, beautiful outdoor seating, awesome outdoor shower and the list goes on and on. The location was less than a mile from the boardwalk and the beach only a few steps away. This home felt like a home, not a rental. Thank you for the wonderful experience. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this house to everyone.

Wonderful Stay Steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

I would like to personally thank Sharon for an absolutely wonderful stay at Sunset Cottage. The home was one of the best provisioned that I have visited and Sharon has thought of everything. The location was fantastic with the beach only steps away from the back door. It was also very convenient to local restaurants and hangouts. We really enjoyed the patio for our morning coffee as well as the evening sunsets at cocktail hour. Sharon, thank you so much for all your help getting everything coordinated. Sunset Cottage is definitely a home away from home instead of a typical rental. We'll definitely be back.

Wonderful stay at Sunset Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The following is a an exact copy of an email that we felt compelled to send Sharon Clark UPON our arrival at Sunset Cottage:

Well Sharon, I guess you could say I am at a loss for words. If I COULD put it into words, I guess the best description of Sunset Cottage is ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT. When we walked in the door, we didn't have to take but a couple of steps to realize the hard work, dedication, and outstanding decorating that went into your beach home and as we continued to walk through it only got better. To provide all the amenities you do, must have been a major undertaking and the attention to the detailed needs of your guests is incredible. We have already taken advantage of the beach umbrella and chairs and the great patio and outside shower. We remain impressed by the abundance of additional beach gear, bicycles, etc. There is no doubt in our minds that the stay here at Sunset Cottage will only get better from here. Thanks so much, Nancy and Doug Bledsoe

Our son, daughter-in-law, and 3 year old grandson joined us on Thursday and were equally impressed...ENOUGH SAID!
