2BR 1BA Waterview
About Deborah Hughes
I have enjoyed living in Pensacola since 1999, first on the base and then on this nice peninsula just outside of the front gate of the Navy Base. Once we were able, we bought a cottage or two in this area and have been sharing them as furnished, monthly, weekly, and now daily vacation rentals with visitors ever since.
Deborah Hughes purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Deborah Hughes chose
This house is so cozy and is representative of the small waterfront and waterview cottages that dotted the Florida Gulf Coast line in the mid 20th century. Completely restored in 2006, it is modern yet has the original look and feel of those 1940s coastal cottages.
What makes this Cottage unique
Of course, it is stone's throw from the base and it is in a nice little neighborhood outside the front gate. Our small circle of Interbay Ave., Silvershore Dr., and Shepperd Drive hugs the peninsula and provides one way in and one way out, a great safety feature for housing considerations but also a feature that tightly bonds those small number of people living in that circle. We hope you'll feel right at home too.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We stayed in the 4 bedroom house next door. It was much bigger than expected and very clean. We enjoyed our stay. The owners were very accommodating and easy the work with. We had no problems with the house or the neighborhood. We would definitely stay at the house again.
Great getaway to the Florida Panhandle.
Deborah was very communicative and accommodating. The primary property I booked was unavailable but offered me a larger property for the same price. Thank you again Deborah!
Great rental experience
Our stay was excellent
We actually stayed at the property next door due to this property being occupied at the time of booking. The owner is very friendly and is willing to do anything to make our stay as comfortable. I will definitely be a returning next year.
Was very nice, and felt like home
The house had plenty of amenities and some extras that made our stay very comfortable. The house was clean and neat, and everything was in working order. We loved the location being so close to everything we wanted to do.
I am so glad that you enjoyed coming to our cottage, your home away from home :) We love making it clean, fresh, and welcoming for you each time you visit. In fact, if you come and stay in our Dove Cottage another time, we can give you our Returning Guest discount of 10% off the daily rental rates. Thank you for visiting and thanks for the nice review for our new cottage by the base.
Quiet and nice neighborhood
My stay At Deborah's cottage was great. Comfy and spacious, just minutes away from beach. Only bad thing which i dont consider it that bad was not having any tv on any of the two rooms, other than that i am definetly coming back for our mini getaways.
Thanks for coming to our Dove Cottage this spring! We are so glad you could visit and relax with us for a mini getaway this year. You are right, we don't have televisions in the bedrooms, just the main room right now. We thought that it would add to the serenity of the cottage and encourage people to gather together in the living room if they all wanted to watch something special or catch up on the news of the day. Additionally, there is a desk and couch in the office that, if someone wanted to bring a PlayStation or XBox, there would be plenty of room to set up in there.
Thanks again for your visit and review, and we look forward to seeing you on the next getaway trip :)
Just outside the front gate of the Navy Base and located on a traditional Florida peninsula. Family friendly, laid back neighborhood that provides easy access to our military base, National Aviation Museum, and the Blue Angels jet demonstration team headquarters.
