Purple Paradise is located in a private gated community, between the Sound and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico on Pensacola Beach. Our quiet, gated community with sidewalks allows for a safe place for children to play and ride bikes. The community pool is great for the days when the beach is rough. The dock is perfect for loading and unloading your watercraft.

Our home is almost 2000 sq ft of open living area, perfect for family interaction. Purple Paradise features a beach theme with bright, tropical colors. The kitchen is large enough for more than one cook and includes most everything you need for those family meals. The kitchen island screams for platters of goodies.

Comfortably sleep up to 10 people in our 4 bedroom home with 2.5 bathrooms. 3 queen bedrooms. Twin room with 2 twin beds. New queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress in Living area. Pack-n-play

One of our favorite areas is the covered area out back. Great for cookouts and listening to music. There is also a TV for watching your favorite shows, or listening to the music channels. Gas grill provided.

There are some great restaurant choices on the island. Ride the free trolley (seasonal) to dinner, or to our free Bands on the Beach concerts every Tuesday (seasonal). Cross the bridges and visit downtown Pensacola, or take in a baseball game. Seeing Joe Patti's seafood market is a must. A day trip to the Naval Air Museum makes for a great family outing. Maybe you'll get lucky and see our Blue Angels! Go East via Scenic 98 to see the dolphins, sea lions and such at the Gulfarium. Or, just relax and enjoy the island life.

About Tanya Kimbrough

We knew we wanted a "beach" home when we built Purple Paradise. After living in our home for 14 years, we made the move to Denver for a job. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we have.

Tanya Kimbrough purchased this house in 2002

Why Tanya Kimbrough chose Florida Main North West

As a true Floridian, I (Tanya) grew up in the Daytona area. After marrying and living in Pensacola for many years, I and my husband Rob were finally able to live the dream and build a home on beautiful Pensacola Beach. We raised 2 daughters in the Pensacola area and both have known the beach life.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy a glass of wine on the dock while you watch the incredible sunsets. Sit on the covered front deck enjoying the breeze after a day in the sun. Share quality time with family and friends on the covered back patio while grilling fresh fish. You will find so many special touches at our home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay at the Purple Paradise! It is very close to the beach. We also enjoyed walking out to the pier, it is so beautiful out there. We just loved the house and we have had a great vacation! Thank you so much!

So much to do, so little time. Two bodies of water on either side. The Gulf on one, the Sound on the other for boating. The bike path for some exercise. . Riding the free trolley to the free bands on the beach concerts on Tuesdays, then coming back to the neighborhood for the fireworks. Taking a day to the enjoy the Naval Aviation Museum In Pensacola, then stopping at Joe Patti's Seafood on the way home to pick up something to grill for dinner. Playing all day on the beach boogie boarding, trying your hand at volleyball, or surfing, then heading to Peg Leg's for Oysters on Wednesday or Sidelines on Thursday for wings. You might want to venture further east to the Gulfarium in Destin to watch the marine life perform! Whatever you decide, you won't be bored.

Purple Paradise is absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was incredible - the house is large, and it is perfect for a vacationing family. The location is amazing, with the Gulf of Mexico a short walk away. The beach is stunning with white sands, wasn't ever crowded at all and the water was warm. There is a pool a few steps away as well, and lots of fun stuff to do in Pensacola Beach. I can't imagine a house better furnished and located for a dream beach vacation. The owner was available for any questions. Thanks so much to Tanya for the great experience!

Great for large family or group!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a blast! The house is across the street from the beach but such a short walk. We practically had a private beach. Great vacation house for a large group.

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay at the Purple Paradise. Booked this with a couple friends to get away for the weekend, and had an amazing time. The house is really well kept up, and pretty much has everything you could ever need (short of free booze =P). Really liked how close it was to the beach. We could take our coffee in the morning and walk along the beach to enjoy the sunrise. It's a nice stretch of beach, not super crowded, but you don't feel like Tom Hanks in Castaway either, and if you want crowded, it's only a mile or 2 away. At night we would go down the road to Pensacola Beach proper to enjoy amazing seafood. Also loved that the garage was stocked with all the beach gear you could need. That saved us from having to buy or rent boogie boards, and bring chairs and all that. Tanya was great to deal with. Very prompt and professional and courteous. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a beach getaway!!

The Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Purple Paradise is beautifully decorated, well maintained and by far the most well equipped vacation home we have rented. The house is stocked with plenty of activities for all ages and we enjoyed almost all during our stay. From strolling through the neighborhood on one of the three bikes, grabbing beach chairs, sand toys and towels from the garage and heading to the beach or bay, to playing one of the many board games, choosing a dvd from the large selection provided or grabbing a book to enjoy on the balcony. The back patio under the house has a large gas grill, table with plenty of seating, a television and music to listen to while enjoying the delightful breeze. The second refrigerator/freezer downstairs came in very handy. The kitchen has place settings for 10, lots of pots, pans, platters, high chair, booster seat and pretty much every small appliance you would need including an ice cream maker! The owners were very accommodating and helpful. We had a wonderful week. The Purple Paradise will now be our annual summer vacation home!
