Overall the stay was great. The weather co-operated. The temp was brisk but enjoyable. Parking is limited to space on one side of the house, with the driveway so we had to keep shuffling cars around as one person wanted to leave but manageable. The view from the back of the house and the rear deck was fantastic. The Wi-Fi connection in the house left everyone wanting and continually kept dropping out... as you know everyone now a day has a computer or smart-phone. The view definitely made up for some of the shortcomings. However, when you have an ardent football fan on a championship weekend Philadelphia Eagles Vs. Minnesota Vikings the were some very tense moments while the system was down, rebooting or buffering and since there was not access to sports channels on the Direct-TV system it was left to the Wi-Fi connection to pull the load. Subtract this issue and you will definitely enjoy your stay.
Good afternoon France party! Thank you for reaching out and providing feedback on your stay with us! We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the internet and hope you continue to choose Southern for any upcoming stay to the Gulf Coast!
Do Not Rent This House
My family booked this house for a vacation because it looked nice in the pictures and seemed to suit our needs. The property is right on the beach and the deck was wonderful. The inside however, was dingy and dirty. The kitchen had old food left in the drawers. The pots and pans were kept in in cabinets that were dirty as well. The beds were gross and had linens and pillows that made us want to sleep on the deck. The electronics didn't work and the couches were NOT clean. There was also a bed bug issue that was discovered towards the end of our stay. We had to wash all of our clothes and relocate to another house. We lost a whole day because of this and despite our precautions, could have brought them home. The management didn't seem that surprised about the bed bugs...Overall, a great disappointment.
Thank you for your review of Escapade in Pensacola Beach. We take pride in our vacation rentals and regret that you were unhappy with features of this home rental during your stay. We have made our team aware of the issues you communicated. Since your stay with us several upgrades have been made to the home. These include new kitchen appliances, decking and landscaping. Bedding and curtains have also been replaced in the house. Thank you again for your feedback!
The home itself presents well in the pictures. The location on the beach and the large deck were enjoyable. The kitchen and bathrooms were updated.
However after looking closer, there was an issue with cleanliness.The bedspreads were dirty and the decorative pillows inside shams,were stained and looked like they had been that way for a long time. The pillows on the bed were clean. The mattresses were old as well as the box springs(very old).One bedroom on the second floor was hot. The air conditioning vent filter was clogged with dust and mildew.The people who stayed in this room had itchy swollen eyes for the 3 days that they stayed and no problems after they left.The other bedroom on the second floor was very cold and their were no blankets except for the dirty bedspread. The sheets and pillowcases were clean but old and thin.There were plenty of clean towels.The worst problem was that the old box spring and mattress in two different bedrooms had BEDBUGS.Southern Vacation Rental confirmed that there were bedbugs and relocated us to another home,after a day was spent cleaning our personal items. Overall it was a disappointing and expensive vacation experience. We will not rent from this company again.

This home is owned by Southern Vacation Rental, you would have to go to their website to book. Overall I didn't have a good experience with the home and customer service. When I initially book, I really liked the guy that made my reservation. I ended up changing to this bigger home to accommodate more people. When I called and tried to ask for the same guy, the lady I spoke to insisted she would help me instead and didn't let me talk him. I thought the problem ended there. House was right off the beach, which was very convenient. We used the patio often and liked the ice machine. The house itself is pretty old. Our bedroom was supposedly the master bedroom, but it had a Jack and Jill restroom that we had to share with the room across. We didn't mind but it was with the kids because of the bunk beds setup. We kept getting locked out of the bathroom because the kids kept forgetting to unlock our side. The air vent in the restroom looked black like there was mold. The other room down the hall with the 2 queen beds looks like the true master bedroom. I'm sure they set it up that way to fit more people in the house. My sister complained that the bed she slept on made a squeaky noise everytime she moved and it became a nausanc. Upstairs stayed nice and cool, our bedroom was cold however. I usually don't mind it cold, but we had a baby with us and she ended up having to sleep on the bed with us instead of in her playpen, so I didn't really sleep well during my whole vacation. The downstairs of the house was hot, it stayed mainly at 78 and sometimes went up to 79. That's very hot when you have 22 people staying in the house in the heat of the summer. When I called about the AC early Monday morning, I had to leave a message and did not get a returned phone call until the next day. The AC guy came, but there wasn't much that he could do. We did everything he asked, kept the doors closed, closed all the drapes and blinds, and turned off the stove and ovens. It still remained hot downstairs and very uncomfortable, both day and night. The AC guy said that the house is just old and is not meant to hold this many people, so the AC can not keep up. He comes about twice a year for the same problems. My husband called them again and said they were not very nice to him. The only thing they could do was bring us one fan for the whole bottom floor. This home was not cheap to rent, and I would have expected more. Will not rent this house again or through the same company.
