Lovely property from attentive owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at Pelican's Perch. We had more than enough room for the 4 of us (could have easily accommodated 12 of us) to stretch out and make ourselves comfortable. We loved being able to watch the Blue Angels practice from the dock in front of the house (they have semi-regular practice sessions and the house is only about 1 mile away from the grandstands). The house is about 20 minutes from the beautiful Pensacola Beach, and 20 minutes from the wonderful (and free!) Naval Aviation Museum. We definitely enjoyed the hot-tub and converted garage/game-room. The owners are very attentive and clearly interested in their guests having a very enjoyable time. We hope to return again soon!

We had a fun stay!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great for a group of Iowa cardclub friends celebrating a 70th birthday with snow birds. The owners were a pleasant couple who we met arriving and showed us around. The house had everything we needed to cook a party meal and lots of places to gather with plentiful chairs outside and inside! The beds were comfortable. We sure made a great memory at this VRBO!

Has everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here in February which is the best time to get away from winter up north. The house was everything that it was advertised to be! Location was great for getting around the area. Grocery store just down the street. We spent a lot of time on the front porch and dock and enjoyed our own dolphin show in the bay several times. We used the kayaks to get around in the bay and out to the island. We really appreciated the fully outfitted kitchen and laundry facilities. In the evenings our family gathered in the living room where there was plenty of sitting room and great TV. We used the hot tub a lot and found the back yard to be very nice. Compared to the place we stayed last year, this home was outfitted much better with supplies in the kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry. The quality of the bedding and towels was great. Margaret and Kelly have thought of everything and are very responsive to guest's questions and needs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out how convenient Pelican's Perch is to shopping and how well equipped it is compared to other properties you have visited. It is great to hear that you used the kayaks even in the Winter! That's really adventurous. We hope to have you again next winter when you are looking to escape the snow.

The property is just 1/2 mile outside the main gate of Pensacola's Naval Air Station, NAS, and 2 miles from Corry Station. Attractions include the Naval Air Museum at NAS Pensacola (which has free admission),the lighthouse and Fort Barrancas ruins and museum. We are about 20 minutes drive from two beautiful beaches; Pensacola Beach to the East and Perdido Key Beach to the West.

This property has the unique feature of a private boat dock on Bayou Davenport which provides direct unobstructed access to the 'cut' which leads to the Gulf of Mexico. You can reach the Gulf by boat in about 20 minutes, which is very quick compared to almost all other areas! Launch your boat at a public ramp about 1/2 mile from house.

Bring your boat or rent a boat at a nearby marina and enjoy the best fishing, tubing, skiing and fun Pensacola has to offer from your own Vacation Rental, Pelican's Perch.
