"This home was perfect for us. We made a quick trip from Houston to Pensacola to visit our son for Christmas. He is in a training program in Pensacola. The home was very spacious, very well equipped and we loved the balconies in front in back. Morning coffee on the deck, enjoying reading in the afternoon with the sound of the gulf nearby. There is a small water view of the Gulf, but the view of the canal is great. I can only imagine how wonderful it is in the summer. We were not able to use the pool, it was too cold, be we could certainly enjoyed view. The owner was wonderful, very accommodating. We had everything we needed while we were there. If this had been an extended visit, we would not have lacked cooking utensils, plenty of pots and pans available. I can see that it would be perfect for a week or more family vacation. The beach is across the street has very convenient access and there is an outdoor shower to rinse off when you return from the beach. Unfortunately, it was the wrong time of year to take advantage, but I can see where it would be wonderful in the summer.
There were four of us and of course we fit quite comfortably. But there is definitely room for more. The dining room table would easily seat 8. There was a large TV in the great room and smaller TV's in the bedrooms. The sky view at night was fantastic. We were able to see so many stars. The area is mostly quiet. There was some traffic noise from the highway, but it wasn't overwhelming. Everything was convenient. We tried a pizza place down the road. We were not able to try other local restaurants, due to the holiday, but there were several in the vicinty.
I highly recommend this property. Working with the owners was great. My only regret is that we were only there for 3 days, not 3 weeks."
