Space 1,050 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

Completely remodeled and updated in 2013. Has 3BR, 2BA with 1,050 sq ft Living.

The charming cottage is cozy and very functional. Originally a 2BR, 1BA from the post-WWII housing boom era. But it has undergone a remodeling and expansion so it is now a 3BR, 2BA withthe addition of master bedroom and second bath completed in 2013.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, walk-in closet and master bath. The master bath has a shower and granite vanity.

The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a bunk bed with twin on top and full size mattress on bottom.

The Master and 2nd bedrooms have smart TV's and there is a 43' TV in the living room. All TV's have DirecTV service.

The 'step saver' kitchen has new appliances and granite counter tops. There is a gas range and dishwasher. It is small but very functional.

There is also a full-size front loader washer dryer in the laundry room.

The front porch is inviting plus there is a large back patio with pavers that has a lighted Pergola, patio furniture and a BBQ grill. There is a canvas covered carport and a long driveway so three or four vehicles can easily park on the property.

The neighborhood is quiet and conveniently located but is a bit sketchy as to how some homes are maintained. We have lived here for a year while doing the remodeling and have been very comfortable.

We can offer to waive the 11.5% state and county taxes to active duty military who have orders for Pensacola duty. You must provide a copy of your orders. This savings on taxes is not for a vacation purpose but for orders to relocate or duty for training, etc.

Prices are subject to change from time to time or there may be special limited time offers. Once booking has been made no adjustments will be made.

About Margaret Hostetter

Margaret was born and raised in Pensacola, Kelly in Jacksonville. They met in South Florida where each had lived for years and decided to move back to Pensacola which they did in 2009. Since then Margaret and Kelly have remodeled or built three houses that are now Vacation Rental properties. It is our privilege to furnish, equip and maintain the properties for our guests coming to Pensacola for so many interesting activities and events in their lives. Our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay with much better accommodations than they could find in a traditional vacation hotel or motel.

Margaret Hostetter purchased this house in 2012

Why Margaret Hostetter chose Florida

Our remodeled Peachy Cottage offers ample accommodations for up to seven in beds plus one on pull-out couch and a pack & play crib, upon request. This is a very reasonable priced home that compares in price with local hotels prices for a single room! Guests can cook, wash clothes and enjoy the outdoor areas and the proximity to Navy bases and all that Pensacola has to offer at a very affordable price.

There is a privacy fenced back yard with patio, BBQ grill and a lighted Gazebo Frame. There is a Security System with outdoor cameras.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique because of the number of people that can sleep for the price and the proximity to Pensacola's Naval Air Station and Corry Station.

Very cute and clean house!

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 in our party and we had plenty of room. The house was well supplied for all your cooking needs. The owners were exceptionally helpful and answered any and all questions we had. We loved the backyard and our grilling time we had! It was close to Pensacola beach and also Orange beach. I would definitely come back again!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great visit. The house was perfect for our family of 5. The only complaint I have, the king bed was not comfortable. The kids said their beds were very comfortable though.

wonderful house for a family

  • 5 of 5

Margaret was very quick in responding when we arranged to get the house and had several follow up questions. The house was a perfect place to stay for our family for our daughter's graduation. We didn't get the lock box combo for the house until we arrived in Pensacola -I guess so we didn't arrive early to the house. The house is definitely the best house on the block. The house was equipped with everything you could need. We loved the location and felt close to the college and the beach. We never felt unsafe even though several neighboring houses looked sketchy. We would rent here again.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that you enjoyed The Peachy Cottage. You had reserved your dates for your PCC graduation before Thanksgiving in 2016. Over six months early which was a smart move because the Pensacola Christian College events fill up the vacation rentals in Pensacola with about 7,000 students and a home school curriculum.

Very convenient

  • 5 of 5

We needed to be in Pensacola for just a few nights and found the peachy Cottage available. It was much more affordable with nicer accommodations than a simple motel room. Miss Margaret was very kind and showing us around and giving us a little history of the house. The neighborhood homes are not as nice and well-kept as the cottage, but it was safe and quiet and very close to stores and restaurants as well as the beach.

Cute cotrage

  • 5 of 5

The owner shared the history of the cottage with us when we arrived. That made it that much more special. We were very pleased with the accommodations and very comfortable in the house.

The house and grounds are well maintained and well stocked with linens and dishes.

We would be very happy to stay there again.

Excellent rental property!

  • 5 of 5

Credit to Margaret and Kelly for maintaining such a great property. It is definitely the nicest home in the neighborhood. As mentioned in other reviews, the neighborhood looks a bit sketchy. However, we did a fair amount of walking in the vicinity and felt perfectly safe. No-one bothered us during our stay and it was quiet at night, even on the weekend.

We were especially impressed by the fact Margaret met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the home. We have done a number of VRBO rentals and this was the first time this has ever occurred. We appreciated this personal touch and it was apparent the pride of ownership Margaret has for this property.

As this was our first visit to Pensacola, we found the location to be very convenient. It was about a ten minute drive to downtown and certainly made it easier to explore the Perdido Key area and some of the towns in Southern Alabama such as Gulf Shores and Fairhope. While it was not our case, I can see the appeal of staying here if you are visiting someone in the military stationed at Corry Station or the Naval Air Station...very close by.

Finally, the house itself was well-furnished and well-decorated. We didn't lack for anything. The beds were comfortable, TV package and reception was good, and the Internet speed was fast. My wife and I especially enjoyed the privacy and seclusion offered by the backyard and it's beautiful canopy of trees. We have no reservations in recommending the Peachy Cottage, and would rent here again should we ever visit Pensacola in the future.
