About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, 1400+ square feet, 3 decks overlooking view of water

Our truly unique slice of heaven awaits you on Pensacola a quarter mile wide our pristine snow white beaches and emerald Gulf of will be the perfect vacation. The boardwalk is nestled on our sound beach and yet just a 4 minute walk to the Gulf. This is the perfect location for water sport fanatics. Your accommodations are beautifully decorated with comfort being a high priority. Enjoy the tranquility in the spring, fall ..winter and well hidden secret, the weather is fantastic and the accommodations affordable. Monthly rentals in the winter - white sand versus white snow!

Up to six guests can comfortably sleep here in two bedrooms. Both bedrooms have full-size beds, and a futon downstairs and couch space for two more. I believe one bed is queen size because full sheets didn't fit well. There is also a single cot available. Other amenities include WiFi, and a large washer/dryer.

Local activities include tours of the National Naval Aviation Museum (21 miles northwest), boat, jet-ski, and stand-up paddle board rentals, local fishing charters, and even attending a Blue Wahoos game (the local minor league baseball team who play 10 miles north at Pensacola Bay front Stadium). You could also take a refreshing drive north or south on scenic Highway 98, along which you'll find un-crowded beaches, quaint towns, plenty of shopping, and local eateries.

Also, Fort Pickens State Park is must see.
Ft. Walton has dolphin show - Gulfarium.
Zoo a few miles from Walmart.
Destin has a great outlet mall :) an hour and half away

We now accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express & Discover, 3.5% service charge added to your total. I prefer personal checks because YOU save lots of money! I am going to deduct service charges from deposit which turns out to be about $50 - $100!!!! Crazy. So personal check is much better! I tear up deposit check when you check out.

There are 2 1/2 baths one off each bedroom and one off the family room.

There are 3 beautiful decks where you can view the water and sunsets that are completely private and not shared.

The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking. There is a charcoal grill and water play toys!

There is wireless internet service. There is cable. There is a DVD and CD.

There is a futon and comfortable couch for naps!

On the deck downstairs, there is a hammock and picnic table painted by my amazing daughters :) The picnic table is being repainted and is a work in progress :)

We share a beautiful pool. There is a volleyball court as well.

A free trolley service runs all through summer. Grab a ride. Go have a fresh drink or two.

I had a terrible family in March. They broke my blinds and left me caramel ice cream or something ALL OVER my steps. I worked to make things okay but if you aren't going to take care of our condo, don't come. I will not refund their money. If you see something out of order, text me, let me know so i won't hold your family responsible. My cleaning lady cleaned before family was there and said she didn't see any of it.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $250
  • Cleaning $125 + tax
  • Tax Rate 11.5%

Notes:

I refund the complete damage deposit if you cancel. If you use a charge card, I do not refund your service fees. I take a bite and only get $242 out of $250. I had a customer say it was false advertising. The service fee is a certain % of the total rental. It ranges from 42 - 75 so far this year. I will DEDUCT this service fee from the refund because the amount gets deducted from my final payment. I hope you see this as fair. It is my personal choice to receive personal checks = no service fees. Some families need to charge - I totally understand but I don't think this is my responsibility as far as payment. :)

Location

We are located 2 blocks from Peg Leg Pete's. We have an amazing beach bayside which is awesome for small children. They can pick up shells and wade safely. The most gorgeous sunsets are right here :) We also have a private pier for our community.

Also, put put and go carts!

The zoo is about 30 minutes away. There is a water park in Ft. Walton about an hour away.

Fort Pickens State Park is historically filled.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My daughters and I have owned this condominium. It has been our home away from home. Now, they go to UGA GO DAWGS but I am a true GATOR ;) My girls and I have worked hard. The only request is that you have a fun vacation but please respect our hard work. Blessings. Enjoy God given sunsets off bay. Absolutely the most beautiful.

Why the Owner Chose Pensacola Beach, FL, USA:
Very secluded. We own a corner unit which gives privacy - no sharing deck with anyone.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The sunsets at Pensacola Beach are amazing. The bayside is very safe for small children. My girls grew up here catching hermit crabs and such :)
