Property description

Looking for a relaxed get away! Come enjoy our home in Perdido Key, Fl on the west side of Pensacola. The atmosphere is casual here, with shorts, jeans and tea shirts serving you well in most restaurants.

Begin your day enjoying that first cup of coffee, without anything between you and the beach, watching the sun rise over the Gulf of Mexico from the back deck of our gulf front home. Enjoy treating the family to a home cook meal in our gourmet kitchen, with plenty of space for helping hands to pitch in and help. Take your exercise walk safely around the circle of the small gated community of Parasol Place, a family oriented subdivision.

Stroll along the shoreline or wade in the warm gulf waters after a relaxing night of sea breezes and rolling surf. Then relax, build sand castles or fish right behind the house. An all time favorite activity of the kids is to walk the beach at night with flash lights trying to spot and catch the tiny ghost crabs.

Walk about 2 blocks from our home along the beach into Gulf Islands National Seashore at Johnson Beach, or for a small fee of $8 per vehicle for a week, drive into the park where you will have easy access to both the bay and gulf via multiple dune walkovers along the 2 1/2 mile paved road in the park. Nature trails, fishing, and kayak or canoe launch sites are on the bay side, and on the gulf side there is a pavilion with covered picnic tables and bath rooms. Life guards are posted during the summer months. The sugar white sandy beach goes for approximately 7.5 miles to Pensacola Pass.

A MUST SEE is the award winning National Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola Naval Air Station which is also home of the famous Blue Angels flight demonstration team. The museum is only 10 to 15 minutes from our house.

Another special treat is Pensacola's famous Joe Patti's Seafood with the freshest and largest seafood choices around. They also have gourmet wines, cheeses and other unique food choices. Our favorite is the Carribean grouper. All of our guest that go agree it is well worth the short drive.

Orange Beach and Gulf Shores Alabama are only a few miles to the west. Each with it's own unique attractions.

Our spacious home is the perfect getaway for that special week on the beach providing an open floor plan, gourmet kitchen, great room, large comfortable bedrooms, laundry, covered porches and patios, with easy access to the Gulf via an adjacent walkway or two private neighborhood dune walkovers. Wonderful gulf views, southerly breezes, and numerous palm trees contribute to the enjoyment and relaxation. Activities abound including golf, boating, swimming, fishing, kayaking and close proximity to parasailing, jet skis, plus all of the entertainment and restaurants along the coast from Gulf Shores to Pensacola.

Shopping including boutiques and outlet malls, antiquing, and sightseeing with lighthouses, historic forts, and numerous museums and art galleries all awaiting your pleasure.

The master suite on the upper level has a king bed, 600 thread count sheets, a large master bath with dual vanities, jacuzzi, and shower. A spacious walk in closet often used by parents with infants for the crib. Bedroom 2 on the upper level with a queen bed is a bright cheery room with its own bath and dressing area. Both bedrooms have spectacular views of the Gulf.

On the main level are the open area kitchen, breakfast, dining, and great room. Also on the main level is bedroom 3 with a queen bed and bedroom 4 which has two twin beds. One of two sofas in the great room is a queen sleeper. A spacious bath and half bath are also on this level.

All rooms include cable TV and DVD. Broadband internet access with Wi-Fi is provided. All linens (including beach towels). The kitchen is stocked with most any utensils, pots and pans you would need.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Ralph was stationed here as a corpsman while in the navy. I (Wanda) am a rare native of Pensacola, and at the time was in nurses training. After 3 years of marriage, Ralph decided to fulfill his dream and completed college and medical school which required moving away for 12 years. Pensacola was the only place we ever considered permanently living to raise our 2 children. If offers everything we have wanted or needed. While providing plenty to do, it still has that small town atmosphere.

Why the Owner Chose Parasol, Perdido Key, FL, USA:
Parasol Place was our home for 17 years. We built it as retirement income after Ralph's retirement. It is custom designed and engineered to be comfortable and roomy. The small gated subdivision was chosen for it's family environment. We have 2 wonderful ladies that take a minimum of 5 hours to clean the inside of the house after each rental. Ralph and I take care of the outside of the house, inside garage, and yards on a mostly weekly basis. We pride ourselves on keeping it clean and well maintained.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Taking that predawn walk while sipping on coffee, and watching the sun rise brings peace each morning. Relaxing on the back deck watching the dolphins, birds, and of course the people can help make you forget there is another world out there. Swimming in the gulf or pool, or fishing right in the back yard will produce years of memories. The neighbors here are all friendly and helpful if needed. We have had many return clients both single couples and families because of they leave relaxed. We are located only a few minutes from Parasol and usually available to take care of any problems that may arise with a simple phone call.
