About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

New home, finished in May 2002. This spacious home has spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico on one side and beautiful views of the Little Sabine Bay and Sound on the other side. The living floor is on the third floor with high ceilings. On the Gulf side is a large deck with two sets of tables and chairs. On the bay side is a balcony with a gas grill.

There is a full kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, etc., and Corian counters and sink. There are three TVs in the home with a VCR and DVD in the living area. An intercom makes it easy to call everybody to dinner. We have everything you need!

On top of the house is a fourth-floor open deck that virtually the entire island can be viewed from.

The walkway to the Gulf is 50 feet from the property down our driveway, with no roadways to cross. Next to this walkway is one-fourth mile of dune preservation area, which gives you an undeveloped and unobstructed beach to enjoy. Across the street behind the house is Little Opal Beach, which gives you an unobstructed access to this quiet beach. You can even pull your boat up here.

Within walking distance, approximately one mile, is the center of Pensacola Beach with shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.

The large, master bedroom has a king-size bed with a large bathroom with a whirlpool bath and two sinks. The remaining three bedrooms have large, queen-size beds. There are two futons in the living area that make two more double-size beds. All bathrooms are tile floors and cultured marble vanities. There is even an outside shower to rinse off when coming from the beach!

You must be 25 years of age or older to rent the property. Families only, please.

Security deposit: A security deposit of $500 will be required. This payment will be refunded within 15 days of departure, providing there is no damage or missing items. If replacements of missing items and/or repairs to the property are required as a result of your stay, the security deposit will be applied to offset these costs. You will be responsible for the entire cost of the repairs, including lost rentals, even if the cost exceeds the security deposit.

Payment: To confirm the reservation, one half of the rent is due as a deposit at the time the reservation is made. The balance of rent, taxes and security deposit must be received two weeks before the date of arrival. If payment is made by check, the balance would be due three weeks prior to arrival. Payment may be made by cash, check on U.S. bank, VISA or Mastercard.

No smoking or pets please.

A perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

This house is quite large on the inside. Be ready to climb, lots of stairs but worth it for the rooftop! Would have liked more updated amenities, like TVs ( I know some don't watch tv while on vacation but TVs are needed with kids!). The mattresses on the beds were a bit hard. The owner is wonderful, very accommodating. He provided us with a list of things to see and do during our stay. Loved the private entrance to the beach. A close walk to restaurants and bars. We will definitely book again

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this house. Richard was so easy to work with. The younger ones would have liked it better if there had been a tv in every bedroom but that didn't bother me. The fact that it was a very short walk to the beach was a winner in my book. The roof was a perfect place to "escape" and relax. Thank you for sharing your home.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families (12 people) stay here recently. We visit Pensacola Beach often, and this is the best place we have rented. It is very clean and spacious. We loved having breakfast every morning on the back porch that overlooks the water. There is a building between the house and the ocean, but you still have a nice view and a very short walk to the beach.

We easily parked all 4 cars (including 2 SUVs) in the garages. Having a garage made it so easy to store all of our "toys" -- surf boards, kayaks, dive gear, coolers, etc.

We cooked at the house most nights, and we found the kitchen to be extremely well stocked. It is very close to the Boardwalk (less than a mile), and Pensacola Beach is very biker and walker friendly. Plus, the trolley runs right by the house. So you can get totally get around without a car.

Super easy rental from start to finish. I highly recommend this property!!
