About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 bath luxury Ariola Dr home with heated pool and easy Gulf access

Pensacola Beach Blonde is a high-end home built in 2015 located on Ariola drive across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. This four bedroom private home was designed for outdoor living and to take advantage of the Gulf views. The house has 2500 square foot of indoor space, 1000 square feet of deck on the front of the house plus a deck on the back overlooking the private pool.

Beach Blonde has fabulous views from the south facing bedrooms, balconies and living area. There is a large covered deck facing the Gulf with ample seating for dining, lounging and sun bathing. With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms we can sleep 12 people. Access to the ocean is very easy and close to the house – 60 steps. And for those days when you can't swim in the Gulf, we have a beautiful private pool in our backyard. The house is very high-end in both finishes and decor with all the amenities you need for a beach vacation.

Glass railings on the south facing decks provide clear views of the Gulf of Mexico. Lounge chairs, couches and dining tables give your group a relaxing setting for outside dining and sunbathing.

The house is built on pilings with an open area underneath and ample parking under the house and in the driveway. All the living areas are on one level. We do not have an elevator and there is one flight of stairs to access the house from the garage.

Other amenities include gas grill, wireless internet, Bluetooth sound system throughout and flat screen HD smart TV's in every bedroom. There is an outside shower to rinse off as you come in from the Gulf. We provide a wagon for taking your toys to the beach as well as beach umbrellas and beach chairs.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, gas cook top, gas double oven, water filtration system and bar seating for seven people. There is a built-in wet bar area adjacent to the kitchen. The dining area includes a table for eight.

The ground level is an open area under the house with ample parking space and picnic tables, seating and a gas grill.

The gunite pool is 14 x 28 feet with depths ranging from 3 ft in the shallow end to 5 ft in the deep end. There is a set of steps, a ladder and a sun-ledge which is an underwater bench in the deep end of the pool to sit and dangle your feet in the water. The pool uses salt water rather than chlorine – it is softer on your skin and clothes and uses less chemicals than a traditional chlorine pool.

Bedroom configuration

• Bedrooms #1 and #2 are both considered master suites each with a King bed, flat screen smart TV and ensuite bathroom. The first master has views to the Gulf.

• Bedroom #3 is a Queen which shares the hall bathroom with Bedroom #4

• Bedroom #4 is the bunk room - with two bunks. A double on the bottom and twin on top and then two twin bunks. Sleeps 5.

About Maria Weisnicht

This property is owned by a retired Navy Seal and pilot who now flies for United Airlines. He and his wife built this house in 2015 with their summer guests in mind. They enjoy the quiet beach life in the winter and make their home available to guests in the summer. They have hired Pensacola Beach local Maria Weisnicht to manage the rentals. With her team, they provide excellent service to their guests - many who come back year after year.

Maria Weisnicht purchased this house in 2015

Why Maria Weisnicht chose Pensacola Beach

This house is on the popular gulf front Ariola Drive in a residential neighborhood. The house is uniquely positioned between the two houses across the street to give it fantastic views of the sparkling Gulf of Mexico. The public beach access is very close and there aren't a lot of people on the beach in this area because it's in a low density residential area with no condos or hotels nearby. Also Pensacola Beach is not just a tourist destination - it is a community with thousands of permanent residents. We are close to two beach churches, the local elementary school, the bike path and just a few miles from the entertainment district.

What makes this house unique

Views first of all, the salt water pool, easy access to the Gulf, great kitchen and lots of outdoor spaces in and out of the sun. Many amenities that make summer living easy.

Beach Blonde is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Beach Blonde and had a wonderful time. The house was absolutely beautiful, exceeding our expectation. It was spacious and well appointed (every room was beautiful), and just the thoughtfulness in all the amenities was perfect. There were 11 in our group, including 4 kids, and there was plenty of room for everyone to spend time together or spread out and do their own thing. The house is right across from the beach. It was wonderful spending the mornings at the beach (the house has towels, umbrellas and chairs), then come back to a day at the pool. Having the outdoor shower was great and the kids loved all the toys. My favorite was the huge covered front deck- it was so relaxing spending mornings and evenings there with coffee or a cocktail. I didn't want to leave, and truly hope to get back to Beach Blonde next year!

And thank you to the great management team who were so nice and really responsive in answering all my questions throughout the booking process. They are local and available if you need them during your stay, but fortunately we didn't experience any problems!

absolutely beautiful home with all the amenties

  • 5 of 5

You have an absolutely beautiful home and we are so grateful you shared it with us for our family vacation July 10-17. Everything about it was perfect - the amenities, the location, the decor, amount of parking, etc. We would have loved an extra umbrella (or 2) since there were 10 of us in the house and the sun is so strong, but we found a rental place that delivered us one along with bikes and a kayak for the week. Thank you again for thinking of everything at Beach Blonde!!

Great kitchen and lovely pool for kids

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at Beach Blonde. Although it rained all day for three days we still had a wonderful vacation. We cooked most of our meals at home and the kitchen is so well equipped. We had two grandchildren both two years old and they loved the beach and the pool. We hope to come back again next year. Thanks for sharing your beautiful beach house.
