Welcome back to 'Spikes Beach Place'!

Just steps from the warm waters and 'sugar white sand' of Florida's Emerald Coast on the Gulf of Mexico. This place is ideal for the whole family or for large groups. Rebuilt bigger and better than ever, this large unit (2400 square feet) has everything you need to enjoy the beach. Don’t be fooled by other “on the beach” advertisement. At “Spikes Beach Place” you are directly on the beach with completely unobstructed beach view and access! The only thing between you and the ocean is the sand on the beach! No roads, sidewalks, fences, buildings or highrises! NOTHING!!!

About Scott and Stephanie

This property was purchased in 1990 while I was serving in the military and based in Pensacola. I had always wanted to return to Pensacola after leaving there at the age of 9. Being able to actually live on Pensacola Beach was a dream come true. The property was destroyed in 1993 by Hurricanes Opal and Erin. It was rebuilt and improved by 1995. When my wife Stephanie came along in 2001 she began adding the womans touch that the property always needed. It was destroyed again in 2004 by Hurricane Ivan. This time we rebuilt from the ground up and took the time to put every feature imaginable for both renters and our own family. We feel great about what we have accomplished and based on our guest comments, so do many of our guests! We look forward to sharing our home away from home with all of you and hearing your comments.

Why Scott and Stephanie chose White Sands

We chose Pensacola because it is simply one of the nicest beaches in the world! I have seen the black sand beaches of the pacific and the pink sand beaches of Bermuda. I have been to the Philippines, Australia, Rio and everywhere in between and none of them compares to the sugar white sands of the Gulf Coast of the family friendly atmosphere and incredible sea food of Pensacola Beach!

This is the place to stay! Stop looking now! We have stayed here two years in a row for Christmas and can't wait for another visit! It comfortably fit our family of 7 adults and 2 kids; with room to spare! We made Christmas cookies and gingerbread houses, a fancy prime rib dinner and gathered around the living room with everyone to open Christmas presents. This house is the best place to make memories on the Gulf Coast!

Beyond the house being the perfect mixture of comfort, luxury and size - the location is perfect! Close the bridge but far enough away from all the big condos. Excellent location for beach walks and sea shells. This is the only place I want to stay on Pensacola Beach or the Gulf Coast!

Beauty and Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for both comfort and beauty. Condo was very well decorated while keeping the comfort as well.

The sands were lovely. Walks on the beach are very appealing.

So happy to have been there!

Absolutely gorgeous.

Heaven on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Don't hesitate to book this house! We stayed here with my parents and in-laws to celebrate Christmas. We were all floating on clouds the entire trip. Everything about this house is a dream! The layout is perfect for privacy and functionality. Every room has its own bathroom, and are all uniquely beautiful! We are all big cooks and this kitchen did not disappoint! The family room and living room are perfect for relaxing and hanging out. The deck was also perfect for coffee with a view and all day hangouts. The beach path is just down stairs and easy to run back and forth for trips to the house. We absolutely loved the audio system and utilized it every chance we had! Working with the owners was wonderful, I called and talked with Stephanie before we booked. She was very understanding and informational! I can’t say enough good things about this location – BOOK IT NOW!

Best place on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I started vacationing in Pensacola Beach 5 years ago. When we first went, we just crossed our fingers and tried to pick a nice place. Boy did we luck out because it was this property and it is THE best place to stay. We've been happily booking ever since.

It's hard to think of it as a rental property, because it certainly feels more like a friend's home. The rooms are large and comfortable. The decor is cozy and you really feel like you are a guest in someone's home.

The spacious kitchen has enough room to work in regardless of the number of cooks. It's well-appointed so you can feel comfortable preparing your menu before you leave for vacation and knowing you'll be able to fix it all.

Not that you have to cook! Pensacola Beach has some incredible places to eat and most are within a 15-minute walk from the townhouse.

You are just steps from the beach (the pictures don't lie), so it's an easy trip down there.

I just can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

I call Spike and Steph's place my home away from home. My family and I love it or should I say REALLY LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The condo is kept very clean and always has in it what they say it has. If for some reason it is missing some item you need that was on the list of condo items, you call Scott or Steph and "wa-la" it's at your door. You can tell they are very proud of their property and that makes my family very happy that they like to share. We had workmen checking all condos on some matter, when they entered ours they both said how beautiful ours was,of coarse we agreed. Thank you Steph and Scott for being such nice people😄😄😄😄😄😄we will be back.

Our new favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

We stay at White Sands condos every summer, but this was our first time in this unit. It far exceeds the others we've stayed at! A lot of thought has gone into making this unit comfortable and homey. The bathrooms (except the master) even have numerous hooks in the showers for wet clothing. That really makes things so much neater and cleaner! My only 'gripe' is that the master bath doesn't have those hooks. The porch area is huge and another separate living space. We spent a lot of time there! We've already got our week booked for next summer!
