Folks often see our two garage doors and mistakingly assume our home is multiple units. Both garage doors open to our large enclosed garage. You, your family, and friends will enjoy 100% of our property. The Beachy Keen home is a single family home perfectly positioned between the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Sound. You are just steps away from the sound and a short walk out of this private gated community to the sugar-white sand beaches and emerald green waters of Pensacola Beach. Adjacent to the Gulf Islands National Seashore, selected as the #3 beach in the U.S. and in the top 25 in the world. Pensacola Beach is located on Santa Rosa Island, the worlds largest barrier island. The shoreline offers endless opportunities for recreation and rejuvenation on, in, and beside the natural beauty of The Gulf Of Mexico here at Pensacola Beach.
Come explore the sand, surf and sky as you hike, bike or kayak along the shoreline.
Beachy Keen is nestled in a small private gated community with the sound and ocean easily accessible on either side. Steps away from the sound and a short walk out of this gated community to the white-sand and emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico. The quiet gated community with sidewalks allows for a safe place for children to play and ride bikes. The island bike path is just outside the neighborhood entrance and runs the entire span of the Island - all the way East to Navarre Beach or West to Ft. Pickens. Cool off in the private community pool, fish from the private pier, collect sea shells by the Gulf of Mexico, spot hermit crabs along the Santa Rosa Sound, or just sit and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Beachy Keen is 1900 sq ft of perfectly laid out living space. A well cared for home with beautiful beach decor, new white washed plank tile floors, and a clean, fresh, peaceful atmosphere.
Enjoy your morning coffee looking out at the water or end the day gazing at the sky painted by a sunset from either the front porch or back deck.
Sleep up to 10-12 people in this comfortable 3 to 4 bedroom home with 3 full bathrooms. 1 king bedroom. 1 queen bedroom. Bunk room (1 bunk bed has two twins, 1 bunk bed has twin on top and full on bottom). 4th room has a queen pull out sofa that can allow this to be used as a 4th bedroom. Living room also has pull out queen sleeper sofa. Pack-n-play provided.
Living room, King room, sitting room off of kitchen, and garage all have flat screen smart TVs with blue ray players. Enjoy wi-fi and cable television. (tv in garage does not have cable but does have a smart blue ray player so you can enjoy movies or sign into your netflix, amazon, or hulu accounts or bring your game console.)
Large enclosed garage with TV/blue ray, ping pong and foos ball so that the play doesn't have to stop on a rainy day. (The garage of course is not air conditioned, but ceiling fans are installed. It is a garage. A nice one. But still a garage.)
Your Beachy Keen home has a washer and dryer and comes stocked with bed linens, towels, hair dryers, and starter paper products.
Beachy Keen even saves you time and money by providing 6 adult bikes (3 mens, 3 women's), 2 kayaks, beach chairs, beach toys, beach towels and beach cart to pull it all around in. (damage or theft will result in repair or replacement cost being taken from deposit)(these are complimentary items that we leave for your enjoyment, we are not obligated to provide these toys for your rental of our home and are not responsible if they don't meet your standards. I have to put this because I've had renters angry that I can't come inflate a flat tire or put a chain back on a bike or they are angry because they don't like the style of beach chairs I have. You are welcome to use any toys we leave in the garage, but we offer them as a complimentary item and are not charging you extra for them.)
All you need to bring is a swimsuit and your flip flops.
We are located at the quieter end of the beach. Far enough away to enjoy the natural beauty of this paradise while still only a 5 to 10 minute drive to all the island has to offer. The Grand Marlin is one of our favorite restaurants located just as you cross the bridge onto the island. Papas Pizza located at the board walk is our favorite quick easy meal (Trolley service offered seasonally to the boardwalk). Drive 10 to 20 minutes to enjoy beautiful downtown Pensacola, it's shopping, restaurants, museums, blue wahoos baseball stadium and more. 35-45 minute drive to the Naval Museum.
