About Joy Wittke

We live outside of Atlanta, GA; and have 2 daughters and 2 grandsons.

Our dream was to own a beach house. Then we found out that we needed to rent it to help pay the bills. I talk to each renter to make sure that the house is a fit for their party. It's the beach, so I want everyone to have fun; but it is a private home.

Joy Wittke purchased this house in 2006

Why Joy Wittke chose Pensacola Beach

We started building this house before Hurricane Ivan hit. It took 18 months to build so it feels like another child. We found this beach to be beautiful and charming without all the madness of the more 'popular' beaches. The beach has incredible white sand and our area at the end of the residential area feels almost private at times. The city of Pensacola has some big city attractions and is close enough for some adventures away from the beach atmosphere. There's plenty to do or just sit on one of the decks and enjoy the view.

Awesome Beach House to Enjoy with our Extended Family

  • 5 of 5

We discovered this house and Pensacola Beach over 5 years ago and have been going back every summer for a week because it was that good! My family, my brother's family and my Mom all meet at the beach house for the week. We get to spend quality time, the cousins get to hang out and it goes by so quickly.

The house has wonderful amenities and great layout for our families allowing us to enjoy time together. We started coming when we had toddlers and kids. They have grown so that we now have teens and pre-teens while still enjoying the time there. I highly recommend this place!

I wish we could stay longer than a week each summer. :)

Peaceful Paradise Palace

  • 5 of 5

With its expansive ocean and sound views, blue skies, and peaceful surroundings, Summer Beach Blue is a true summer palace. The spotless and beautifully decorated home offered a peaceful haven for times when we wanted to chill. Equipped with every possible item needed for a beach or pool day and furnished comfortably for people of all ages, this home let me stroll across the street to the beach, stake out my spot on the white, sandy beach, and sit for hours listening to the sounds of water kissing the shore. It provided quick access to activities, restaurants, and shops for those times when I wanted to be a part of the action. (Plan your trip around the free Tuesday night beach concerts where the whole family can pull up beach chairs and dance to away to great music.) The house is more than spectacular as the owners have made every attempt to make the house welcoming and filled with charm. Summer Beach Blues is a peaceful palace set in paradise.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a little piece of heaven, then you have found it at Summer Beach Blues. The house design is laid out with comfort and practicality in mind. Everything that you might need for your vacation is on site and the views are stunning. Best of all, the wide, sparkling beach is just steps away.

And when you are ready, there are plenty of great dining and shopping options available.

Looking forward to my next stay!

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful & clean house in a quiet location. Loved the master bedroom with the walk-in shower. The kitchen area was large and well equipped. Overall loved the house and would definitely stay again!! The only downside of the house are the stairs. The top stairs are tile and dangerous if they get a slight bit wet, we had to block the stairs with the couch so our 1 and 3 year olds couldn't get to them. I'm sure most houses in hurricane/ flood zones are constructed the same, so really it's a minor issue.

Joy was very accommodating and easy to work with. THANKS AGAIN!!!!

Summer Beach Blues

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Summer Beach Blues for eight years now. The home meets all our needs for a family get together, The owner has always made a special effort to maintain and upgrade the house over the years. The kitchen is well stocked for any type of meal, if you wish to cook. There is no need to bring extra supplies as there are lots of beach towels, beach chairs plus a beach cart and umbrella down stairs. The beach is across the road and a swimming pool is just down from the house for the community use. This year we enjoyed the new rocking chairs on the balcony. The pier out to the sound provides lots of fun for young fisherman. It is always a pleasure to visit Pensacola Beach and Summer Beach Blues.
