About the property

2 bed 1.5 bath -5 min walk to pool or Gulf . Immaculate and lots of 5 stars

This unit has been a rental for the last three years and it has gotten five stars consistently all the pictures and the video is updated and everything is exactly what you see ....and that is nice ! The kitchen has been remodeled ,the bedrooms ,the balcony the bathrooms everything . The owners name named their vacation rental ' Parrot Paradise ' because of the large awesome mascot that is there to greet you on the back balcony.

There is nothing left untouched in the way of making you feel at home in this tastefully decorated beach Bungalo it is very inviting with no detail left undone.

The name of this complex is called ' Villas on the Gulf ' a letter is associated with I each building this is in building ' L ' it is not gulf front but it is literally less than a five minute walk to the Gulf of Mexico from your unit .

The pool that is for use only by villas on the gulf owners and rental guests as less than five minutes away . You are literally five minutes away from the gukf of Mexico and five minutes away from the pool ,there is a lagoon with fountains a gazebo walkway and the lagoon contains ducks ,geese and swans this is approximately 1 mile from the core of the beach . The core of the beach is where all of the restaurants bars and shopping on Pensacola Beach so this has privacy compared to being in the main hotel area but it's close enough to the central area if you want some action . In the summer season starting from end of May to Labor Day there is a free beach trolley . This unit even comes equipped with a pack and play if you have young kids.

This comfortably decorated unit will provide you with all the details of home three flatscreen TVs ,a fully stocked kitchen with cookware,utensils ,blender, Keurig coffee maker and coffee pods microwave refrigerator and icemaker.

There is a king size bed in the master bedroom ,in the second bedroom there's a double bed which could sleep 2 ,A double bed which could sleep too and there is a rollaway in the master bedroom this could sleep a total of seven people in a bed.

This unit has gotten five star reviews from the get-go and will continue to maintain its impeccable report card .

About Mary Bedard

I along with my biz partner Jeff McCain handle a small select group of mainly condos ans a few houses located 95% on Pensacola Beach and one on Navarre Beach .They all are very well-stocked compared to your average typical vacation rental with a lot of extra that most condos do not include like cleaning supplies,beach towels, and the reviews and the repeat renters are there to prove that extras really do mean a lot .

Why Mary Bedard chose Pensacola Beach

This particular unit L5 located at Villas on the Gulf on Santa Rosa Island ,Pensacola Beach Florida is literally less than five minutes walk to the Gulf of Mexico it is not gulf view but you're not paying Gulf view prices either this is been nothing but five stars on this property it's immaculately clean and it's been a five-star all the way .

What makes this condo unique

There is a nice pool if you leave your condo and head north five minutes away from this condo if you head South five minutes you'll be dipping your feet in the Gulf of Mexico . You get the best of both worlds plus there is a lagoon on premise that contains ducks swans and Geese.

This unit is close to the beach and in great shape. Mary Bedard helped us find this place and she is wonderful to deal with. We have booked with her twice and will certainly do so again.

Perfect place for family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villas on the Gulf last year and loved the "Our Happy Place" unit so much we decided to return, but it wasn't available during our travel dates this year. (The very kind owners had even extended a return stay discount, which was very nice!) I contacted the property manager, Mary, and she offered several other options right away. We chose Parrot Paradise and were glad we did! It was even closer to the beach than last year's unit, which wasn't far from the beach either, but this was an even shorter walk for my older parents to manage. Mary was once again absolutely wonderful to work with - very responsive to all our questions & needs. She let me know that the unit was ready for our arrival a couple hours early, which was very helpful as we were tired from the long drive. The unit was very clean, obviously recently updated & very nicely decorated in a cute whimsical beach theme. The bedroom set up was perfect for 2 couples & 2 teen kids with the king, double & bunk beds. The mattresses were comfy, linens were very nice & plenty of towels, including beach towels, were provided. It was so convenient to have a nice washer/dryer in the unit as well! The owners left local attraction brochures & even thoughtfully left a nice basket of travel toiletries in case we had forgotten anything! The kitchen was very well stocked, there were even a few basic spices, cooking oil & K cups provided for Keurig, which was perfect as we planned to cook more than go out to eat this year (several grocery options available on Gulf Breeze, very short drive away)! Only missing a veggie peeler & the knives were a bit dull, but otherwise fit our needs very well. The wifi worked great. We appreciated the 2 beach chairs & umbrellas, as well as sand toys available! The section of beach at Villas on the Gulf was so clean and not crowded at all (we were there after Labor Day). We spent all day every day there: the kids caught blue crabs, we saw a plethora of fish/rays while snorkeling & found plenty of shells. The pool was a short walk as well, very well kept complex. I do wish it had recycling bins on site, but we just dropped our recycling off in town on our way out. All in all we agreed it was our BEST beach vacation yet! We would not hesitate to work with Mary or book this unit again! Thanks again to Mary & Parrot Paradise owners for a fabulous vacation rental!!! Well done! :)

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

7 of us stayed for a week and it was very comfortable. We just walked in with our groceries and didn't have to worry about anything. Very nicely decorated. Peaceful and about a 2 minute walk to the beach. We will definitely be back next year. Mary was wonderful and answered all the questions I had. I'd definitely recommend this condo!
