Guestbook comments from the manager

We LOVED the house and the neighborhood and will definitely look to stay there again. I honestly can't say what we would complain about???....it was a small TV but we honestly didn't have time to watch it so that didn't bother us either! Everything was perfect!





Thanks, Julie, for these great comments for our future guests It was a pleasure to have you all stay with us! Just so you know, a second, larger TV screen is in the works for 2013.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Blue la Rua for four nights of our road trip. Deborah was always easy to liaise with and quick to respond.

The property was much bigger than we thought, three bedrooms, and several living areas. The porch at the front and deck at the back of the property were both lovely spaces to chill out.

The property offers easy access to downtown Pensacola, and an easy drive over to the beach.

There is everything you could need in the rental, including beach towels and chairs.

Others I think have mentioned the noise from trains during the night, we heard this on the first night, but after that it never bothered us.

Thanks for our stay!

Easy place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Maximizes use of beds and common space. We had several guys stay for a bachelor weekend of fishing. We thought the place looked much smaller than it turned out to be. Centrally located to tons of downtown restaurants.

I accidentally left a pillow at the house. I contacted the owners, and they shipped it back to me. Can't say enough about how easy it was to deal with management. Would stay here again in a second.

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a production of Romeo and Juliet at the nearby Saenger Theater. This little cottage was in the perfect location. It was a 5 minute drive to downtown and about 15 minutes to the beach. The neighborhood was charming and so was this adorable house. Deborah was great with communication and the place had everything we needed for our weekend getaway. If ever in the area again, we will try to make it back here!

A great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the cottage so much during our stay there. It was in a great location near the Naval base and the beach. Deborah was so great to speak with prior to the reservation. We are already looking to see when we can get back there. We will definitely be booking the cottage any time we get down to Pensacola to visit our son. The only thing I would suggest is that a cookie sheet be added to the kitchen items. The cottage was very well stocked and had all that we needed in the kitchen and bathrooms, with only the small exception of the cookie sheet. We loved having the Publix within walking distance. Our kids were intrigued to know the history of the cottage. They spent a great deal of time trying to figure out if all of it was original or if some rooms had been added on. We all loved the nostalgic feel of everything.
