|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Enjoy all that Pensacola has to offer from this traditional 1930's NW Florida cottage centrally located in the fantastic neighborhood of East Pensacola Heights only 3.5 miles to Downtown/ Palafox Pier, 4 miles to Pensacola International Airport, 7.7 miles to Pensacola Beach and 8.7 miles to NAS Pensacola. This two bedroom/one bath cottage is for the guest that desires and appreciates a true, 1930's Pensacola cottage which showcases the original heart pine flooring, tongue and groove ceilings and wainscoting, yet through a tedious 2009 renovation, has all the expected modern conveniences such as granite countertops, dishwasher, enhanced fixtures and central heating and air conditioning. Extreme care was taken to preserve original architectural characteristics while enhancing the livability and comfort of the home. The floor plan provides maximum space utilization with an open living to dining room and the fantastic period ‘Jack and Jill’ bath is conveniently accessible from either bedroom. The “Florida” room off of the kitchen holds the full size washer and dryer as well as storage for beach toys, and other convenience items. Arguably the best part of the home is the inviting front porch swing; day or night, what better way to watch the world pass by! While this home can sleep up to four, it is primarily intended for a couple or small family get-away. The home is located 2.5 blocks from a city park with full playground, baseball fields etc., 4 blocks to an amazing family owned deli/grocery store (Apple Market), 6 blocks to a stretch of U.S Hwy 90 known as "Scenic Highway" that has a multitude of great family owned restaurants. With certainty, and as guest reviews attest, we believe this is the perfect accommodation for those interested in venturing from traditional lodging options while refusing to compromise high standards of safety, cleanliness and comfort. Our guests receive the best value of any place in town. One flat nightly rate (all year long), 2 night minimum stay, no cleaning fee (yet cleaned impeccably after each stay), balance due only 7 days prior to arrival (most others are due at booking or 30 days out)and because we know life can abruptly change the best made plans, we remain extremely flexible to all cancellation requests. We hope you choose this 100% truly owner operated labor of love to be the basecamp in your Pensacola travels while making memories that last a lifetime. – Tim & Evie
Our house has been a pleasurable pastime...our labor of love. We fancy the idea of devoting our passion into a home with character and 'good bones' by bringing it back to life. For us, it is fulfilling to take part in beautifying a neighborhood one house at a time. It is just another way for our family to be productive members of society.
Tim and Evie Thoner purchased this house in 2009
We LOVE the location. Being of a military background, our family knows how important it is to be supportive of our fellow men and women in uniform. Whether it be a pilot's first solo flight, a graduation, or coming to see the Blue Angels fly, this home is perfect for extended family and friends visiting a loved one stationed at NAS. It is also very ideal for internship's...located on the same road as Sacred Heart Hospital and 5 minutes to all downtown law firms.
From this location, you can explore Pensacola and the surrounding area easily and efficiently. There is a locals favorite deli/market (Apple Market) with full service espresso/Coffee bar 3-4 blocks away. Public park with water access (suitable for kayak/ paddle board) 2 blocks away, park with baseball field and children's playground 2 blocks away. Marina and Public boat ramp very close. Many Fantastic restaurant's within 1/2 mile. And of coarse the worlds most beautiful beaches 10-15 min away!!!
Dear Tim & Evie,
We had such an amazing week! We really appreciate your allowing us to stay in your adorable home. Your recommendations for children were wonderful! The kids had a BLAST at Cowboy Park, and we loved the fish tacos at The Oar House! Our 4-year-old wants to live here forever! Thank you so much for your hospitality, generosity, and kindness! We look forward to returning!
We stayed here for 7 days with our two children (11,7) and it was perfect! The house has everything thing we needed! They really go above and beyond hats a fact! The location of the house was amazing as well. It was close to everything we did! Super nice neighborhood and neighbors! I recommended if you looking for a nice relaxing home to stay in then look no further :) once again thank you Tim and Evie!!
The place was super clean and well maintained. It truly felt like a home away from home!
We were thrilled to discover that this vintage little house was nearly identical to our 1930's bungalow back home so, for us- that just added to the appeal & comfort factor. Don't despair if you normally reside in an apartment or a McMansion- anyone would be comfortable here! We walked in to spotless conditions, a floral centerpiece and welcome card on the table, fully stocked kitchen & plenty of extras for those rainy Florida days: games, magazines & DVD's in the tv console!
My husband was THRILLED that the grill & charcoal were included as well. Neighborhood is quiet but folks were friendly if we encountered them on one of our daily walks to the apple market. The cottage is a short drove to beaches, Gulf Islands Seashore, Ft Pickens, & downtown PCola the main reasons we choose to vacation here. I am writing this from our inlaws place in Destin - hey, if you're into crowds, cheesy Florida-isms, wasting money & rampant consumerism & tourists- come to Destin. If you want to invest in a HOME & have a truly unique & RELAXING experience: book this place and chill on Tim & Evie's porchswing with a glass of Rose'. From the journal left by all former rentals in the cottage- I can tell that I am not alone in these sentiments. Best money we ever spent! My only regret in writing this is that the secret is out & I will need to book next year's trip even earlier! The grumpiest person alive could not escape the charm of this place! As an elementary school teacher, I do not wish to be overstimulated by weekly Mardi Gras parades, jet ski's, loud noise, or hordes of children during the summer- I NEEDED the respite & healing power of order & silence, privacy & home-like setting that Tim & Evie provided for my well earned vacation. Book it- you won't regret it!!! Five stars- hands down!!
We loved this place so much we ended up spending a lot of time there! Clean, modern, comfortable. Even came with beach stuff to borrow! About 20 min from Pensacola Beach, quiet neighborhood.
Affordable, clean, cozy, and beautiful. My mom fell in love with this place. She did not want to leave. The owners are very nice. We will be back!
Thank you so much for another wonderful stay in your cottage! We love the location close to the historic district and great restaurants in addition to the close proximity to the beach. We also enjoy the quiet neighborhood as well. Everything was perfect, and we hope to visit again next year!

Our philosophy is that all hard working families deserve a vacation without breaking the bank! Our established rate of $85 per night has no additional fees, except for the mandatory state tax of 11.5%. *In 2016 This website implemented a traveller "service fee", we feel this to be a very unfortunate move, but it is outside of our control nor do we profit from it. No other hidden fees or charges when booking your stay. We only require the minimal $100 deposit (and this is where vrbo/homeaway adds their unfortunate service fee)to secure the reservation, balance is not due until 7 days prior to arrival. Deposits will be refunded within 7 days after departure.
* Approximate monthly rate. Actual rate will depend on the days of the month you stay.
