About Joe and Christina Leonard

We are proud to be locals. We raised our family here on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. This is our private home we wish to share with other families. Wonderful place to create memories!

Joe and Christina Leonard purchased this house in 1988

Why Joe and Christina Leonard chose Villa Segunda

Right across the street from the Gulf...50 yards from the water. Unimpeded Gulf access... like having your very own private beach! The free flowing floor plan allows for easy living in a comfortable, relaxed setting. The 1300 square feet of covered deck space and a 3rd level observation deck offer many places to find your own private piece of paradise and get away from the crowd and just chill!

What makes this house unique

Located right across the street from the Gulf with views of Santa Rosa Sound as well. Great home for large families! Relaxed neighborhood ideal for families with small children.

Imagine spending the day on the Gulf, and never having to use a public restroom!

Beautiful Pensacola Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home, steps from the white sand and clear Gulf waters. Our group absolutely loved the property and all of the amenities/toys made our visit: bar under the house, grill, crows nest, bikes, surf board, boogie boards, ample deck space etc. I would absolutely recommend the property to anyone who wants to enjoy the beauty that is Pensacola Beach and I can't wait to get back again!

Great Home Great Host

  • 5 of 5

From booking to departure Joe was extremely helpful & easy to work with. Home was perfect & location is great. Easy beach access & away from the bustle of town. The first floor “beach bar” was great for rain delays & evenings. Would recommend Joe & “happy hour” to anyone.

Great house. Perfect location. Gracious host. Would definitely stay again.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well maintained home. Very clean. Extra amenities such as bikes, beach chairs and ice maker were handy. Had 5 adults, 3 teenagers and one toddler. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. Ideal for large families or multiple families. Easy access to the beach. Minutes from restaurants but far enough that noise and traffic were not an issue. Plenty of parking. Street was very quiet. Joe met us at the house to show us around and answer any questions. Would definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous home with amazing gulf views.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures just don’t do “Happy Hour” justice. The home is spacious and large enough for our group of 10. We enjoyed coffee on the porch every morning. Two mornings we were entertained by dolphins right off the coast. Everyone in our group ages 10-50 loved the downstairs with all it’s activities and also enjoyed long bike rides. No need to bring beach chairs or towels! What an awesome perk. This is the best location we have stayed at during our trips to Pensacola and we definitely plan another trip soon. Joe was great and very attentive. The week could not have been better!

Pensacola Beach
Car: recommended

Check out for lots of good information. Santa Rosa Island (Pensacola Beach) is rich with history. Ft. Pickens on the western end in the Gulf Islands National Seashore was once home to "Geronimo" and his wives. The Fort is open for touring. This area was also used in filming the first "Jaws" movie! The Naval Air Museum at N.A.S. Pensacola is a must see on a rainy day. Joe Patti's Seafood Market, even if you don't like seafood is a place to see! One of a kind!
