It will sleep up to 14 - ten adults in five bedrooms, and four children on the trundle bed and fold out sofa, which are both located in the same room - the downstairs den. Two new tankless instant hot water heaters provide virtually limitless hot water for large groups. It is located on Pensacola Beach, in the first residential block of Santa Rosa Island, within walking distance of shopping, sightseeing, restaurants and bars. The beautiful landscaped lot has 85 feet of frontage on the sound, with a 1200 square foot ground level deck, a 150 foot pier and boat house for private fishing. You can rent or bring you own watercraft. Swim in the sound or private pool, or walk a few yards to the beach. Private pool is beautiful.

The optimum arrangements are either: (1) four adult couples in four bedrooms with private baths; two older children in the twin bedroom without a private bath; and three to four children on the trundle bed & queen sofa in the downstairs bedroom; or, (2) five couples in five bedrooms, and three or four children on the trundle bed & queen sofa in the downstairs den. We will accept reservations for groups that include no more than ten adults.

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.

Just a little slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed many times at both Destin and on Pensacola Beach. You will seldom find a home or location as nice as this! It is truly a beautiful home with an even more beautiful view! The porch off the den is both large and luxurious, as well as covered. You are only steps to the sound as well as a short walk to the Gulf of Mexico. Entertainment center and surround sound abound in each room. The game room and pool are options and fun both day and night. This was our second vacation here and really had a wonderful time!

Natural Beauty in full view off the deck

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to put into words. The place is a North Florida palace. It can comfortably sleep 6 grown men or 2 family's of 4. It's a 50 yard walk to the Native Café parking lot to take shuttle rides or ride the bikes furnished by the homeowner. Our boat guides came right to our dock for pick up and drop off. We rarely drove.

The interiors, pool, outdoor spaces and openness were more than we imagined. The Paradise Rental company was very accommodating. We hope to stay here again...and again...and again.

Paradise at Pensacola Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation at this beautiful home was like PARADISE! The week we spent at this rental was beyond our expectations. There was plenty of room for all of us, whether we were inside or outside. The home is furnished beautifully, and we all felt at home immediately. The landscaping gives it a lush tropical feel. The pool was perfect for the kids and adults, and exclusive for us to use night or day. My husband who had shoulder surgery a couple of months ago, could not decide whether the hot tub or steam shower was his favorite. We all spent a lot of time on the beautiful balcony overlooking the private dock and waterfront, where we enjoyed incredible sunrises and sunsets, as well as watching jet skiing and parasailing. The entire family relaxed and enjoyed genuine quality time together, which was priceless. Our sons fished off the dock every day. We saw dolphins and stingrays and lots of fish, but unfortunately the fish were smarter than the fishermen!

One son and daughter-in-law quickly learned to paddle board in the calm water.

Our family motto for the week became: "Just another day in paradise".

The entire week we spent together at this beautiful home was even better than we were expecting. The owner went above and beyond with detailed instructions, to make sure our stay was perfect, and the management company made everything simple and easy. I would recommend renting this home to friends and family with total confidence that they would enjoy it as much as we did. PARADISE!!!!
