Beautiful vacation beach house with large heated pool, hot tub, gorgeous panoramic views of Santa Rosa Sound, sidewalk next to house goes to the Gulf 2 blocks away and Santa Rosa Sound 1 block away, decks overlooking pool, game room and fenced side yard with sand and toys for the kids, sound system with 11 speakers, 5 flat screen tvs, gas grill by the pool, gas firetable with a tv outside, public tennis courts and jogging track and basketball court 2 blocks away, very large chess and checkers on upper deck. From the back deck watch pelicans, an occasional school of dolphins, boats and parasailers in the Sound. Day trips to Destin or Gulf Shores or a 1 hour drive to Blackwater River State Park to go tubing or canoeing or hiking along the cleanest sandy bottom river in the world. Two miles from great seafood restaurants, charter boat fishing, sailboat and waverunner and parasailing rentals, bands on the beach on Tuesday nites, shopping or dancing along the boardwalk, the trolley stops along the street in front of the house to take you there. In town, Pensacola Naval Air Station has one of the greatest museums of planes and stories in the US. Ft Pickens is a very historic walk thru that is only 10 miles away on the eastern end of the island. The scenic drive along the Gulf on one side and the Sound on the other is worth it just for the ride. A toll is collected by the Gulf Islands National Seashore rangers to get to Ft. Pickens There is a fishing pier at the main beach on the Gulf and there is an even longer pier at Navarre Beach with a state park. Navarre Beach is at the eastern end of Santa Rosa Island about 15 miles away. The drive is a scenic must-do along the Gulf. Some people will get off the island at Navarre Beach and continue on to Ft. Walton Beach to a very nice aquarium or San Destin for a day trip. All levels in the house are accessed by stairs. Even with all there is to do, several families have told us they walked along the beach or swam in the waves every morning, came back to the house at lunch time, relaxed, cooked out on the grill and swam in the pool the rest of day, never went anywhere else and had the best time and can't wait to come back.
Pensacola Beach has the most beautiful sugar white beaches in the world. Small pets welcomed.
