Overview

Pensacola Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, (Sleeps 7)

We are located directly ON THE GULF OF MEXICO exactly one mile west of Pensacola Beach Pier. No roads to cross to get to the beach! You literally step out the sliding glass door of our condo and onto the beautiful white beach. You'll have 1,700 sq feet of open, bright and airy accommodations that includes a fully equipped kitchen, all bath and bed linens, washer/dryer, two private balconies and complimentary wireless internet.

Our quiet piece of paradise is directly on beautiful, non-crowded Pensacola Beach and is ideal for strolling or long runs, swimming, surfing, kite flying, dolphin watching, shelling and fishing. Just across the street is a great local's hangout Peg Leg Pete's - known for their seafood, oysters and nightly music. There are other great restaurants nearby - Hemingways, Flounders & Grand Marlin to name a few. A 10 minute drive into downtown Pensacola will give you a myriad of restaurants like McGuires Irish Pub, Dharma Blue, Fish House and Jackson's.

Our condo is two stories. Stairs are inside the unit. An elevator is located at the west end of the building and allows access to both floors without having to take the stairs. If you have family members with special mobility needs, please contact us for more information.

Upstairs, there is a king bed in the master bedroom and queen in the second bedroom. Both of these upstairs bedrooms have private full bathrooms. Downstairs there is one bedroom with a bunk bed set and a twin bed. There is a full bath that opens to to the hallway. The kitchen and living room are also located on the first level. All the bath towels and bed linens you will need are provided.

The living room and master bedroom open onto private balconies where you can enjoy the beautiful ocean views and sea breezes. You'll be assured a good night's sleep with the tranquil sound of the waves.

We keep our kitchen stocked with all essential equipment and tools. Kid-friendly dishes are included. A stop at the grocery store on your way to the beach - and you are set!

WIFI is complimentary throughout the condo. We have flat screen TV's in the master and queen bedrooms and a TV/DVD player in the living room.

We have kids and know what makes a vacation easier: Pack -n- Play and high chair are available for your youngsters. (See our pictures below.) We keep an assortment of kid DVDs and kid games on hand, along with beach toys that you are welcome to use.

Our availability calendar is always up to date. Please check the calendar for your vacation dates.

At Seahorse, you'll have everything you need for a wonderful beach vacation!

Please note that our rates are straightforward. No hidden or surprise fees. No "reservation" fees are charged. You pay only what you would expect: a security deposit, a nightly rental fee and local/state sales tax plus cleaning. That's it!

About Lori

The NeSmith's enjoy the beautiful sunsets on Pensacola Beach. We are Pensacola locals and enjoy our beach retreat.

Lori purchased this condo in 2003

Why Lori chose Florida Panhandle

The pristine white beaches of Pensacola Beach are truly the most beautiful in the world! We love our little piece of paradise. It is quiet and peaceful, yet a short drive to all the wonderful activities Pensacola has to offer. Only 8 miles from Seahorse condo to Downtown Pensacola.

We picked Seahorse for two main reasons: it is not a high rise and it is right on the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf is our backyard. We love walking out our back door and on to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

On Pensacola Beach, it is very unique to be able to walk out the sliding glass door and onto the beach without having to cross a road or take a elevator. Most beach-side lodging are hotels or large condo buildings. We love Seahorse because it is quiet, private and laid back. Having your own home away from home on the beach is very special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lori,



We had another wonderful time at your beach house. Our little grandson made sand birthday cakes and so enjoyed the beach. We cherish our memories in Pensacola and hope to return for many years to come. Thank you for everything!

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My brother & family & my family came in for a friends wedding being held on the beach so we decided to make a mini vacation of the event and found this location on HomeAway. There were several locations to choose from but Lori's quick response and helpfulness sealed the deal. The condo was very well furnished and decorated. Home away from home (no punn intended) Great view & a few steps from the beach. Close to the busy part of town but far enough away to enjoy yourself with kids or just a quite weekend with someone special. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Best family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first beach vacation in Florida and we could not have picked a better place. The beach was beautiful, the condo was wonderful and the town was great. We loved fishing off the pier and enjoyed taking the trolley to the boardwalk. There was so many things that we wanted to do but could not get everything in.....so we have to come back.....

Perfect for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. Beautiful views with the beach right outside the door. We saw dolphins a couple of mornings from the back deck. The trolley stops out in front and the grandkids loved to ride it into the downtown area. The condo is spacious and nicely decorated. The owners were prompt in answering all questions. We stayed here with 5 adults and 2 children. We are all looking forward to another family vacation here.

My famIly has vacationed at Seahorse Unit E for several years in a row. For us there is no other place. We are familiar with the area and attractions which are many. We spend most of our days soaking in the sun, enjoying a quiet beach and the beautiful clear ocean which is just a very short walk. I have watched my grandson playing at the oceans edge as a young boy, and now he has grown into a young man and enjoys deep sea fishing. He has learned to love and respect the ocean and the life that it supports. The condo is tastefully decorated and very spacious. Alan and Lori are the perfect landlords and want their guests to enjoy their stay. Would love to try and keep this place a secret but would be so unfair. We just returned home and are already dreaming of our next visit.

Repeat visitors

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's fourth trip to the Seahorse. Every visit has been awesome from the clean beautiful accommodations to the fabulous food at nearby restaurants. The beach is clean and beautiful. Often see dolphins in the early morning while drinking coffee from the condo balcony. A relaxing, fun, safe vacation for families.

Seahorse is located on the west side of Pensacola Beach. We are next door to San Souci and across the street from Peg Leg Pete's Restaurant. It is exactly a one mile walk along the beach from our condo to the Pensacola Beach pier.

Peg Leg's is a local's treasure. Great seafood, delicious drinks and the perfect playground for the kids. You can take an easy stroll across the street for a great meal and entertainment. This is the place locals go to year round!

Deep sea fishing charters can be found close by. You are 8 miles from Downtown Pensacola and Historic Pensacola sites. Paddle boarding is BIG in Pensacola. You can easily pick up a class or rental during the warmer months. You are a short 30-40 minute drive from outlet shopping in Destin FL or Foley AL. Also, lots of great antique shopping is available in Pensacola!
