Overview

Pensacola Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Great Value for a great vacation. Cute cottage is located on gulf side of island and is a 60 second walk from the beach on a designated walking path just alongside our house. Eateries and entertainment are a few minutes walk the other direction. The beach is generally not crowded at this location and excellent for shelling and watching spectacular sunsets. Spa like private outdoor shower is great after a day at the beach. Large deck area, hammock and BBQ grill are available for your use.

Cook in our fully equipped kitchen or catch the island trolley to Peg Leg Pete's for your favorite seafood specialty. Nearby National Seashore is a wonderful place for undeveloped, natural island vistas. Walk to nearby beach shops for souvenirs and listen to free concerts at the Gulfside Pavilion May-Aug. In nearby Pensacola is a historic district with excellent shopping. Come relax, watch your worries fade in the sunset and live easy for a time.

About Ella Hess

I have lived in Gulf Breeze & Pensacola Beach since 1982. From 1983 to 2010 I was a Real Estate Broker (my Fl license is currently inactive). I moved from New Orleans to Pensacola Beach because I came to visit friends & loved the Island and all it had to offer.

Ella Hess purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Ella Hess chose Pensacola Beach

This property is unique because it is a piece of Pensacola Beach history. Built in 1957 it is one of the few houses not destroyed by hurricanes. It is quaint & cozy, 2 blocks from Gulf of Mexico & white sands. It is within walking distance to 'downtown' Pensacola Beach. Affordably priced yet has all your vacation needs.

What makes this cottage unique

Front porch swing, hammock, bar-b-que grill, bicycles, three TVs with DVR, internet, books to read, games to play & no stairs to climb at this quaint cottage on the Island of Pensacola Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful visit. Everything was just perfect. The beach was incredible, we will definitely return. This really beats a boring hotel. There is everything here for our comfort!

Beach going family

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this property. It was even more spacious and better than the pictures showed. The beach was so close and easy to get to. It was also not very crowded at the beach access by the house. We would definitely love to come back!

Lovely, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
The "Little Mermaid House" (as my daughters called it) was perfect for our vacation. There were four of us - my three daughters (ages 15, 13 and 10) and myself, and the house was a perfect fit. It was comfortably furnished for us as we spent time at the beach and across the street at the gallery/gift shop, the Native Café and the Paradise Inn restaurant. The kitchen was exceptionally well-provisioned, so we enjoyed cooking for ourselves throughout our stay. I cannot wait to book our stay for next year - we will be back!

We had a great time, the pictures of the property were right on spot, but didn't tell us how relaxing the patio would be, we spent so much time out there just chilling! The house was equipped with more that I could have imagined. Loved it!

Perfect Weekend for the Bride!!!

  • 5 of 5
This past weekend, we celebrated a weekend in honor of one of my best friend's who is getting married! This house was PERFECT for a girls get-a-way. Everything we wanted to do was in walking distance...we walked to the beach...which was literally footsteps away from the house, along with walking about a half mile down to the Boardwalk where there were bars and cafe's along with great shopping! We had such a wonderful time at this house. As it catered perfectly to a girls weekend, this is more than perfect for a family get-a-way! I will definitely return! For the price and the location, you CAN'T beat this!!!

Love it...

  • 5 of 5
As a family with two children, we have made Pensacola our summer vacation destination every year, for the last seven years...all I can say is that by far this is the best place we have stayed in. Only a couple of minutes walk to the beach, and also walking distance from restaurants and shops...very clean, nicely kept, and very confortable...we will absolutly come back to this property next year, and I would totally recommend this property to any friends and relatives...
