Best location on Pensacola Beach and newly renovated!! Whether you're looking for a fun family vacation or a private romantic 'get-away.'
Your large private deck (seating ten) overlooks the calming turquoise waters and white sandy beaches of Santa Rosa Sound. Relax and read in morning sun or watch the kids playing at the shore just steps away. The water is shallow for at least 100 yards out and waves are gentle. The Sound is perfect for all sorts of water sports or just sunbathing. Rear deck faces northwest for spectacular sunsets. Front deck faces Fort Pickens Road (two lane) and the Gulf of Mexico.
The San DeLuna property (32 townhouses on five acres) is adjacent to Fort Pickens National Seashore, a federal preserve of ten miles of unspoiled beaches. You can easily walk (300 yards) from the Gulf of Mexico beaches on the south to the calmer Santa Rosa Sound beaches on the north. Its like having your own private beach for shelling, walking, fishing, sunbathing, birding, dolphin watching, and more.
In the other direction is plenty of entertainment with fantastic seafood restaurants, shopping, nightlife, deep-sea fishing, go-carts, miniature golf, and public fishing pier. Just for fun you can rent jet-skis, bikes, kayaks, scooters, and 'fun cars.' A free trolley-bus (Memorial Day to Labor Day) stops every half hour in front of the property to take you there. Also a paved walking, biking, and jogging path runs the entire length of Pensacola Beach.
Your luxurious townhouse includes covered parking for three vehicles and two floors of spacious living area. Both floors are newly decorated in relaxing beach colors. The downstairs consists of the living room, dining room, kitchen, half bath, laundry, storage, and decks. The living room has a 36 inch LCD flat screen with HBO/cable/DVD and two sleeper sofas.
Upstairs is master bedroom with king-size bed, 21 inch TV with HBO/cable/DVD, jacuzzi tub, and beautiful view of sound, pool, tennis courts, and Gulf of Mexico from large window wall. Second bedroom has queen bed with TV with HBO/cable and view of Gulf of Mexico. Both bedrooms have 'full' baths and ample closet space.

On the sound & the Gulf
This townhome is ideally situated near the sound, the swimming pool and the tennis courts. The Gulf of Mexico is across a 2-lane road that had very little traffic during our 2 week visit in late March.
The furniture was adequate for the 5 of us, but we needed to buy additional kitchen items and linens, which we left in the house for future guests.
I would not recommend this home for anyone not able to climb the winding metal stairs leading to the bedrooms or to anyone with small children that might fall down the stairs.
The spring breeze comes in the back screen door, but unfortunately we had to use the air conditioner several nights because we couldn’t open the upstairs windows. I had expected to fall asleep to the sound of the surf, so that was a disappointment. Most of the time, however, the fans in the bedrooms and living area were quite enough to keep us comfortable.
Our daughter, son-in-law, and grandson especially enjoyed their stay, spending most of every day at the beach and visiting the area’s natural and historic sites. The nearby restaurants are very kid-friendly, with sandy play areas, children’s menus and casual dress codes.
Great condo all around
My wife and I stayed in this condo from mid February to mid March. We have stayed in a number of units in the area in the past and find this one to be the nicest. It was clean and roomy with nice views. Access to the beach is simple and the area is somewhat secluded . It is a pleasure working with Sue and her husband.
We loved it!!!
We had the most amazing week here!! Sue was great to work with and very willing to help us out, even through Hurricane Nate.
I can't say enough about how much we loved it there. I would have loved to just move in and stay forever!!!
Good location on the end of the strip. Everything we needed was available.
We loved the gulf side. Kayaked on the Bay/Sound side. The water there was a reddish orange and I am assuming it was due to algae of some type. However it did not keep the majority of people from using it. Check in was a breeze. A little confusing though because one thing said 3 and another said 4 which was when it was available. We had a 22 month old with us and it was a chore keeping him away from the spiral staircase. I would not hesitate to recommend this property though. All in all we had an amazing week !
You want a view? This is the place for you.
Excellent views of the bay from the main floor and the master bedroom. It's our third stay at San DeLuna, first in this unit. Owner is easy to work with.
The views and included usage of kayaks were the key positives. Improvements/ Cons are minor: limited kitchen amenities, sliding door and screen are difficult to open, no window covering on sliding door, and outdoor decks are in need of repair (true of most of the units).
I would recommend this unit to family and friends and would stay here again.
Condo in great location, loved Pensacola Beach
Overall the location is great, and while the unit has a few flaws, I thought it was a good value; I wouldn’t hesitate recommending it.
Sue was easy to deal with and very responsive to questions/issues (of which there was only one with the WIFI). Check-in/out was a breeze.
As it appears in photos. Nice view of sound from rear deck with awesome sunsets. Could not find an umbrella for the table so the patio was not really usable in the late afternoon when the sun hit it; it’s semi-private as the patio for the unit next door is right beside it. Each unit has an outdoor shower head and hose so cleaning up after the beach is a breeze.
Of note, the walls are pretty thin if the people next door are being loud at all; if you’re a light sleeper, bring ear plugs.
The condo is in dire need of a paint job and gives what is otherwise a very cute place a bit of a run-down feel. The furniture is showing some wear, however, there’s a set of green bedsheets that work perfect as furniture covers for the couch and love seat.
Speaking of sheets, ALL linens were put away not damp, but wet. Luckily I noticed it soon after arriving and put a couple of loads back in the dryer otherwise they would have been very moldy. This was obviously not the owner’s fault. Keeping in mind that there is a $125 linens fee, a few of the towels are stained and should have been retired, I set them aside in hopes that the cleaning people would replace them.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Bathrooms are small but efficient.
NOTE – this unit has no landline. If you’re visiting from Canada, you may need a US phone plan added to your mobile phone unless you Facetime/WhatsApp etc. If you need 911, hopefully you’re still able to convey the address so emergency services can find you!
The sound side has calm water and a narrow beach that you can take a nice stroll along toward Fort Pickens. Often you will see dolphins fishing close to shore. The Gulf side (pictured in ad) is a quick walk and beautiful with miles of nice white sand and not crowded at all. The unit came with lots of chairs, though they are a bit worn, I choose to grab new ones at Walmart in Gulf Breeze along with a beach umbrella which didn't cost much.
Nice pool and common area, there are only 10 loungers to service all of the units. This wasn’t a problem during my stay as it was not overly busy, but might be during high season.
Thank you, your comments are appreciated.
The townhouse is currently being painted during this off-season. Sleeper sofas are being replaced. Also, there will be a new patio set, with umbrella!
