Perfect for our needs!

  • 4 of 5

Although the house was not large, the rooms were spacious, clean and nicely decorated. No clutter! It was very adequate for our needs and we enjoyed the comfortable space. We had three teen boys with us and they enjoyed the kayak and canal adjacent to the property. The screened in porch was an especially nice space. The master bedroom and bath, along with two bedrooms with twin beds and a queen bed that shared a bath was the perfect configuration for our group.

The only issue that we had was no internet access for the majority of the time that we were there. (esp a problem for the boys!) Someone came to look at it and tried to fix it, but to no avail. We were trying to look up activities in the area, etc. and that just made it a little more difficult. Hopefully, they will be able to resolve that problem. The only other little things that were missing, that could have made things a touch easier, were more trash bags, (we could only find one) a pizza cutter (we had to use scissors) and a wine bottle opener (fortunately, we had one with us).

We would definitely encourage people to rent this house if they were looking for this type of setting and people arrangement. We would stay again!

Great Till The Tornado!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for a Midwest winter getaway for the month of February. Quiet area with easy walking for our dog on the three streets of the subdivision. Sunset was very nice over Escambia Bay. Our time was cut short with the Pensacola tornado that passed thru the area on February 23rd, destroying the screened in porch area and tearing off part of the roof. Other houses were damaged in the neighborhood also. We look forward to coming back to the house after the repairs. Let us know when it gets put back together! Thanks for all your help.

Great Expereince

  • 5 of 5

There were four of us that stayed at this home when traveling for my Granddaughter's 2nd birthday in Pace, Fl. The home was well decorated, clean and neat with the conveniences we would hope for. There was plenty of room and we had no issues with TV's, WIFI , etc. We especially enjoyed the waterfront view from the large screened porch and watched the birds plunging in the water from 20 or 30 feet to catch their breakfast! It was very entertaining and a new experience for us all...

The property manager checked in to make sure we didn't need anything and was pleasant and professional. The pre-arrival instructions were clear and we had no issues finding or accessing the home. We simply preferred to stay in a home than in hotel rooms and this rental fit our needs perfectly and we recommend to others as well as plan to stay here again!
