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.

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.

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.

Our family loves this beach house!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed @ Summer Beach Blues for the third time this year. Our family enjoys the access to the beach and the sound, the decor, the large kitchen and living area and the great view of the Gulf.

Thanks, Joy Wittke!

Summer Beach Happy

  • 4 of 5

2017 was the third year we've stayed at Summer Beach Blues, the perfect house for our children and grandchildren. It's fully stocked from towels to beach chairs and toys. The big kitchen has plenty of tools for our son, the chef, and enough seating for our group of 12. We also enjoy the 3 balconies and views of both the gulf and sound. The gated community is safe for the toddlers.Copious, comfortable sleep accommodations and . kid- resistant floors and sofas. We just love it!

The only "blues" are for when you must leave!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well-maintained property with access to a peaceful, stunningly beautiful beach. We felt at home in Summer Beach Blues and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped and spacious. The bedrooms are lovely (3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor along with the laundry and one bedroom upstairs with the kitchen, living room, eating and game areas) and the closets have lots of hangers. The couches are comfy. Plenty of seating for meals is provided. The views are gorgeous. Dozens of movies, games or puzzles are provided to occupy your time if you so choose. A garage closet full of beach toys, nets, boogie boards, extra chairs and beach wagons awaits eager beachgoers. There are two flights of stairs, so I occasionally wished for a trash chute or a dumbwaiter (haha!), but overall I appreciated the exercise and loved the house!

Great location for beach

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Very comfortable- kitchen very well stocked. Loved all the puzzles and games. King bed was very comfortable- queen bed upstairs a bit lumpy.

Porch has great ocean view , and loved boardwalk out back to watch the sunsets.
