Taste of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this beautiful beach home over the Thanksgiving holiday. It is truly amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. It has so much space. Everything from the master bathroom with the steam shower, the whole house sound system, the hot tub, game room to the kitchen was awesome! It was too cold for us to use the pool or get into the bay or go to the beach but in warmer weather that would just make this place even more like heaven! I would recommend this beach home to everyone! This is where we want to stay every time we come to the beach!

Another great stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth time our group has rented this property. This trip like the previous two was great. Our group has three couples and seven children ages 3-11. Each time we stay everything is always very well maintained and items are usually upgraded before we notice that they need to be. Check in and check out is very easy. I enjoy the property because it allows the kids to be outside and enjoy the vacation. Some like the pool, others like the bay and the beach is a quick and easy walk for those who want to do that. There is enough room in the house for the kids to spread out while allowing the adults to relax as well.

As the children get older they enjoy fishing off the dock. We bought a crab trap at the local bait shop and they really enjoyed seeing what we caught every morning when they woke up. It is also enjoyable for the adults to fish in the evening while socializing on the dock. We would catch a few fish every night which was nice. If you are interested in catching fish to eat I would suggest getting a long handle net as you will be challenged to get the speckled trout to the dock without them shaking the hook out of water.

In short I would not hesitate to rent this property for a fifth time.

This home is absolutely wonderful! So glad we stumbled upon this jewel on the beach! We have always rented on the gulf side of the beach but this magnificent sound front retreat trumps them all! Very conveniently located, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. My husband and I stayed here for two weeks and loved every minute! You will not be disappointed in this house!

The house could not have been better and the pictures do not do it justice. It is quite literally the best house I've ever stayed at. Between the pool, sound, shuffle board, ping pong, darts, pin ball, hot tub, outdoor bar, view from upper deck, the boat house or the proximity to Paradise Bar and Grill, there is literally something for everyone. Equipped with enough outdoor seating for over 70 people this is the ultimate house to entertain family and guests. Communication with David the owner was second to none. I could go on and on. I've stayed at multiple houses on the beach, some for months at a time and this house will be my first choice from now on. I'm booking again for the fall. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Was so nice to have good communication with David, the owner, throughout the booking and staying process.--Even when he was out of the country! It's clear he takes pride in his home and cares that his visitors have a great, hassle-free time. This is a FABULOUS home!

There were 11 of us in our family gathering for our Spring Break. (March 10-15) Unfortunately the weather was awful--cold and rainy every day. (NOT the norm for Pensacola). But a wonderful testament to the house--we still had an awesome time. There were four kids ages 6-13 among us and they had a blast dividing their time between the hot tub and the game area in the garage. The kids and all the adults had daily and nightly ping pong and shuffleboard "tournaments"! There are 4 bikes that we put to use also with short, easy, enjoyable rides around the area (as long as we were zipped up and bundled in our hoodies) ;) The boardwalk area is super close and the beach area is just across the street--Lots of things easy and quick to get to for all involved.

We used the grill each night and the spacious, updated kitchen was nice to make and have most all other meals and snacks in too. There is also a smaller kitchen downstairs that was also convenient. One evening the weather was ok and we were able to eat out on the upper patio looking out across the water--It was gorgeous! That was just one of MANY table and chairs options surrounding the entire house outside. Another short window we had of ok weather (albeit chilly), the kids waded out off the back of the house along the rocks and along the dock and collected seashells and had other kinds of fun. It was nice to have shallow, calm waters right off the deck.

We're still so so bummed about our bad luck with the bad weather---There was so much more we could've done with all the fabulous amenities the house offers for endless outdoor fun. Hopefully there can be a next time...and it'll be dry with lots of sunshine!

We would most definitely recommend this house for what would be an awesome vacation!

Absolute Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The location was ideal. We walked to little cafe's and restaurants. The bicycles were a great plus! There was plenty of space for everyone. The home was beautifully decorated with plenty of dishes for cooking. The heated pool and spa were used daily. The outdoor living spaces were very comfortable and the view was incredible. The game room was a huge plus for all of us. The teens played ping pong and darts for hours. All who stayed want to come back.....soon. The little details highly suggest that the owner is very attentive and truly cares that you have an excellent experience. There was a wonderful surprise around every corner. I highly recommend this home for all.
