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.

Just a few things to consider

  • 3 of 5

The place was clean and looked great when we checked in. The bathroom shower is amazing! Great tile work and the shower controls are a blast! Only a few things on the negative side. (1) no drawers to put clothes - not a problem for over nighters but if staying 4 days are longer it is a pain having to live out of your suitcase on the floor. (2) The WiFi did not work most of the time we were there. Not the owners fault. But also there are several different spellings of the WiFi router name with caps on or off that pop up as available. Trying to figure out which ID works with which is a pain. (3) Automatic lights for the stairs comes on only some of the time. Have to dance around to get it to turn on and sometimes that does not work as well.

Overall, a nice place.

Owner's Response: Thank for positive feedback and you make a few good points, for some reason there’s two light sensor one on the lower level and one up that’s controlled in the studio some reason people seem to turn it off they also turn the light off in the studio not realizing the light switch controls the light in the unit so a lot of times people unplug The light instead of using the light switch. I Made the improvement replace the sensor downstairs and labeled the light switch in the studio to make it more clear for visitors.Although there is multiple WiFi they all have the same password so it’s not been an issue nobody’s mentioned anything about Internet issues so I’m not really sure it might’ve been a provider problem that day but definitely good to know. As far as not having a dresser in the studio, but in the large bathroom area there is a place to hang clothes makes it a little more convenient than working out of your suitcase. It’s kind of a trade off If i put a dresser in there it takes up free space that’s in the studio. Might be a good idea and might consider it for the future.

It really felt like home, can't wait to come back.

  • 5 of 5

Vinny was great! The studio was awesome, especially the shower. The bed was very comfortable. Perfect location, close to restaurants and shopping. The walk to the beach was shorter than I expected. I loved the lagoon in the back. I will definitely be staying here again. Thanks again for everything Vinny!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

The studio is great and Vinny goes out of his way to help any way he can. He charged my car battery for me when my car battery died the night before. The studio is in a great location, super close to the beach, just a short walk.

Beach get away

  • 5 of 5

This studio VRBO was perfect for our stay at Pensacola Beach. It was a great location, close to the beach and quiet. Very clean with a comfortable bed and a great shower. Vinny was a superb host. We will certainly return here on our next visit.
