Guestbook comments from the owner

I am having a very hard time leaving this awesome and peaceful space that Kim shares with her rental guests. But after delaying my departure twice, I must exhale and return home to Georgia.



Renting a condo in a high rise building was an adventure for me in it self, but nothing could have prepared me for the breathtaking view from this 11th floor corner unit. The gulf puts on a show all day everyday and this condo gives you a front row seat of the gulf, island and sound. And, oh yes of course the unit has very comfortable beds, lovely bedsheets, clean bathrooms and a super roomy refrigerator with water and ice service on the door! The kitchen is well stocked with just what you need, plus a little extra. The unit is super spacious but the floor plan and furniture arrangement make the space open and inviting. Well, I guess you can tell I really, really like Kim’s “ Home Away from Home”. Renting directly from her was super easy. She was responsive and most helpful both before and after arrival. The heated pool and hot tub were very nice. The building was well maintained and Wifi was way faster than at house in Georgia. Hope to return again....you will too.

Second To None

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting beach condos for the last 10+ years. The views here are stunning with full length windows to let in all the natural light. The balcony is large enough for a small group to sit at the table comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped and large enough to do what you do in a kitchen. The living room is huge with unbeatable views. Even with a crowd it never felt crowded. The dining area is equally large with a massive table. I was there for a family event, some of whom came to spend a day with us. Our group of 12 was able to sit at one table for dinner. Fantastic! We were there in January so there was no swimming but the white sand beach is beautiful and within walking distance to the pier. I love the fact that the pool area faces the gulf and imagine the breeze is great in the summer. However it was an unseasonable 37 degrees during our stay and the breeze was not as welcome. Of course this did not stop some as there were folks in the heated pool and hot tub every day. This condo is second to none. As an added bonus the owner, Kim is absolutely the best. She contacted me prior to my arrival to see if there was anything we might need and again after our stay to see if there was anything she could do to make the stay better. I have never encountered this before. She made us feel as more than just another customer, we were her guests.

Owner's Response: Hi Phil, I am so glad you enjoyed our home, the incredible panoramic view of the Gulf from our living room which was the reason we fell in love with the unit and the added bonus of being centrally located as well. Winter 2018 has been unseasonable cold this year, we typically don't get this kind of cold weather in Pensacola, it is a good thing that we have a heated pool and hot tub. It was nice getting to know you and thank you for sharing the picture of your lovely family, please look me up again on your next visit to Pensacola Beach.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my extended family for a week over the Memorial Day holiday 2009. What a fabulous condo and a great vacation! Beautifully decorated and spacious. The condo never felt crowed even with 7 people coming and going during the course of the week.

Corner unit has fantastic views and balcony is perfect, overlooking the Gulf. Everything is within walking distance but spent most of my time on the balcony just chillin! Couldn't have been better!

Two pools facing the Gulf, one heated. Neither pools nor beach were crowded, even on a holiday weekend! Forget about Destin or Panama City! No contest!

The owner is super nice and very accomodating. Will definitely try to go back in 2010!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kim's condo from 2-19-18 to 2-25-18 was absolutely perfect, everything from booking it, to getting a call from Kim immediately, to the view, to the laundry facilities in the condo and another shout out to the view, that alone is worth the stay! Kim was spectacular and very accommodating, extremely easy to get a hold of and had answers to any questions we had. When researching condo's in the area I kept coming back to this one because of all the great reviews. I would highly recommend this condo and hope to get back there again ourselves one day. It's so spacious and withing walking distance to most everything. It made our family vacation perfect.

Absolutely fantastic and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kim's condo in Emerald Isle was perfect in every way, from the moment I booked it and got a call from Kim, she treated us like her guests making sure we had everything we needed for our vacation to be wonderful. The condo itself is spectacular and worth every dollar, the view is magnificent. It is extremely clean and well stocked, complete with a laundry room that was so handy. I even went looking for scissors and found a pair. When searching for condo's I kept coming back to this one due to the excellent reviews by renters and now I know why. The location is great within walking distance to everything. It made our family vacation perfect in every way and we will definitely be return customers!!

The apartment was very spacious, well equipped, clean, comfortable beds.

Kim was great to communicate with, very thoughtful & accommodating.

As a VRBO & Airbnb owner / guest I would recommend Kim’s apartment.

Exceeded expectations!!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice facility. Really enjoyed the stay. Only inconvenience was that the front door whistled and howled in the wind. Had to block the door with towels to quiet the sounds to sleep.

Owner's Response: Larry, Thank you so much for the feedback, we certainly make every attempt to keep our home by the sea comfortable, clean, and modern. We are very appreciative of your ‘exceeded expectations’ rating, this means a lot to us and we will continue to keep our home in tip-top shape to earn the many repeat visitors who enjoy their time at the beach in our home. With respect to the wind noise coming through the hallway door, this is due to the wind tunnel effect caused by the hallway design. We have addressed this with tighter seals on the door to reduce this noise. This only occurs on days when there is a strong north wind, which is rare. We will re-exam the door again and replace seals, this will remedy the problem you referenced above. Sorry if this caused some loss of sleep. Please visit us again, we look forward to your next visit to our home by the sea. Thanks, Kim
