About Vinny Matassa

I am a water lover and are an empty-nester living out our dream of owning property and living on the Beach!!! I have spent the last 10 years vacationing on the Gulf of Mexico and were ecstatic when we found the gem of a property that we now share with the world. I live in a Townhome community that has a studio apartment over the garage that I rent here on VRBO. I travel frequently for work but make it a priority to make each stay customized for our guests.

Vinny Matassa purchased this studio in 2010

Why Vinny Matassa chose Pensacola Beach

I love the Gulf of Mexico Beaches and Pensacola Beach is a fun, exciting but at the same time a quaint, low key and extremely friendly place to live.

What makes this studio unique

I enjoy the short stroll to the beach & bay. the accessibility of all the 'party zone' within 2-3 miles from home but yet have the quiet end of the beach that is more secluded all year round of our own beach pleasure. We love having the trolley during the busy season so that we don't have to worry about parking at the local restaurants and bars.You can prepare a nice meal and step out side in 3 minutes be on the Gulf of Mexico and enjoy a moon light stroll.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented this unit for an affordable mom-daughter beach trip. My 16-year old and I both found it to be charming and comfortable. Owners Vinny and Linda treated us as guests, not customers, and went out of their way to provide hospitality: complimentary beverages on arrival, fresh ice in the freezer, plenty of fluffy towels, beach gear (umbrella, chairs, etc.), direct phone access in case of problems. Quiet end of beach really is just 1.5 short blocks away! Look for the rinse-off shower under the courtyard stairwell to avoid tracking sand into the apartment. Recommendations: Plan ahead for Pegleg Pete's -- the two of us had a 45 minute wait (worth it) for a table on a weeknight at 5 pm; larger parties waited 1.5+ hours. Don't miss Native Cafe and Beach Pops for fantastic fresh local eats, and the gift store in the same shopping strip for lovely local artisan jewelry, clothing, decor and more. Glad my daughter talked me into buying her an underwater mask so she could see what was under those gulf waves, too.

Perfect space for 2 people

  • 5 of 5

Adorable efficiency a block from the beach and a convenient to everything. Loved the bathroom and closet. It was a perfect space for my husband I to stay for my Dad's 70th birthday. There was Starbucks coffee and a coffee maker, which is perfect for us coffee drinkers. We travelled from Durham and stayed for 3 days. We enjoyed our quiet stay being tucked away from the crowd. Definitely will spread the word and will return.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The room was amazing! Vinny made it feel like we were at home. We were close enough to everything, yet far enough away we couldn't hear a thing a night. The short walk to the beach made this a perfect room. We will defiantly be back.
