Overview

About the property

Maximum affordability without compromising location, comfort, or cleanliness!

Enjoy all that Pensacola has to offer from this traditional 1930's NW Florida cottage centrally located in the fantastic neighborhood of East Pensacola Heights only 3.5 miles to Downtown/ Palafox Pier, 4 miles to Pensacola International Airport, 7.7 miles to Pensacola Beach and 8.7 miles to NAS Pensacola. This two bedroom/one bath cottage is for the guest that desires and appreciates a true, 1930's Pensacola cottage which showcases the original heart pine flooring, tongue and groove ceilings and wainscoting, yet through a tedious 2009 renovation, has all the expected modern conveniences such as granite countertops, dishwasher, enhanced fixtures and central heating and air conditioning. Extreme care was taken to preserve original architectural characteristics while enhancing the livability and comfort of the home. The floor plan provides maximum space utilization with an open living to dining room and the fantastic period ‘Jack and Jill’ bath is conveniently accessible from either bedroom. The “Florida” room off of the kitchen holds the full size washer and dryer as well as storage for beach toys, and other convenience items. Arguably the best part of the home is the inviting front porch swing; day or night, what better way to watch the world pass by! While this home can sleep up to four, it is primarily intended for a couple or small family get-away. The home is located 2.5 blocks from a city park with full playground, baseball fields etc., 4 blocks to an amazing family owned deli/grocery store (Apple Market), 6 blocks to a stretch of U.S Hwy 90 known as "Scenic Highway" that has a multitude of great family owned restaurants. With certainty, and as guest reviews attest, we believe this is the perfect accommodation for those interested in venturing from traditional lodging options while refusing to compromise high standards of safety, cleanliness and comfort. Our guests receive the best value of any place in town. Balance due only 7 days prior to arrival (most others are due at booking or 30 days out) and because we know life can abruptly change the best made plans, we remain extremely flexible to all cancellation requests. We hope you choose this 100% truly owner operated labor of love to be the basecamp in your Pensacola travels while making memories that last a lifetime. – Tim & Evie

About Tim and Evie Thoner

Our house has been a pleasurable pastime...our labor of love. We fancy the idea of devoting our passion into a home with character and 'good bones' by bringing it back to life. For us, it is fulfilling to take part in beautifying a neighborhood one house at a time. It is just another way for our family to be productive members of society.

Tim and Evie Thoner purchased this house in 2009

Why Tim and Evie Thoner chose Pensacola

We LOVE the location. East Pensacola Heights is a gem, situated on a peninsula with Escambia bay to the South and East and Bayou Texar to the West. This neighborhood is convenient to the beach, downtown, the mall, airport and has many of it's own restaurants and even an amazing 'old time' grocery store just 4 blocks away. Homes in East Pensacola Heights vary from the early 1900's to new construction happening on vacant lots today! The area has maintained as a clean, safe, working class neighborhood for over 100 years and that truly has something to be said for it.

What makes this house unique

From this location, you can explore Pensacola and the surrounding area easily and efficiently. There is a locals favorite deli/market (Apple Market) with full service espresso/Coffee bar 3-4 blocks away. Public park with water access (suitable for kayak/ paddle board) 2 blocks away, park with baseball field and children's playground 2 blocks away. Marina and Public boat ramp very close. Many Fantastic restaurant's within 1/2 mile. And of coarse the worlds most beautiful beaches 10-15 min away!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Tim & Evie,

We had such an amazing week! We really appreciate your allowing us to stay in your adorable home. Your recommendations for children were wonderful! The kids had a BLAST at Cowboy Park, and we loved the fish tacos at The Oar House! Our 4-year-old wants to live here forever! Thank you so much for your hospitality, generosity, and kindness! We look forward to returning!

Cozy cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

The 1930's era cottage is clean and cozy, is centrally located and is in a very quiet, safe feeling neighborhood. The cottage has a lot of the original architectural elements which lends to the homey feeling. The cottage is within walking distance to a neighborhood market that has great ready-made dishes in the deli. Also within walking distance are few pizzaria's, sandwich shops, Scenic 90 restaurant which was good for breakfast.

I gave the cottage 5 stars based on the cleanliness, quietness, location, etc. The one negative my husband and I had about the cottage was the bathtub. We don't know if the tub is original to the house but it is a very narrow tub with sides that slope severely to the center, almost making a "U" shape at the bottom of the tub. Both of us had a difficult time standing to take a shower, we kept sliding to the center, almost losing our footing. There is a grab bar at the front of the tub on the faucet side; another grab bar should be installed on the wall toward the middle of the tub for the safety of the renters.

Tim and Evie are easy to work with and responded quickly to inquiries. Thank you both for your service and for sharing your cozy cottage with us.

Amazing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at the cottage. Tim and Evie were very accommodating and easy to deal with. Our kids loved Pensacola! This was their first trip to the beach and I don't think that we could have picked a better place to stay. We loved the fact that it's just a short drive to the beach but far enough for you to relax from the chaos of the crowds. We also went to the Naval Museum which the kids loved and that wasn't a far drive either. I am very thankful that they allowed us to rent the cottage for the week. We will definitely be going back for our future vacations .

Moms & Sons Beach Trip!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect "Home Away From Home" for your next visit to the Pensacola area...well LOOK 👀 right here! The most awesome, cozy little cottage with all the amenities you need. We were able to cook a few evenings and enjoy our dinner, complete with conversation and swinging on the front porch. We'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quick or extended stay!

Quiet neighborhood and charming, comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very charming house in a quiet neighborhood. We were only able to Stan two nights due to our work schedule. But we definitely will be staying again on one of our next trips to Pensacola. Everything was clean and comfy! The washer and dryer was nice to be able to do laundry before we headed home. Great rates and great customer service. The owners were very thorough in making sure we were settled in and comfortable. Thank you for your great hospitality! Loved the old house charm with amenities of a newer home. It fit my family of four just fine. Looking forward to the next visit!

Adorable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was adorable, it was just as it appeared online. We were in Pensacola (from Ohio)to attend our daughter’s commencement at UWF. It was very close to everything, including her apartment, near downtown. The cottage was perfect for our family to have dinner together and be our meeting point. We took advantage of the well supplied kitchen and beach accessories. Very quiet neighborhood!
