Nice condo and great location BUT
The condo was beautiful, spacious, and the couches and chairs were very comfortable. We loved the bay window looking out to the bay. Just across the road (Not a busy road) was the wonderful ocean beach. The kitchen had everything you would need.
The beds were a little hard for us but everyone has a different preference. What was odd is that the beds had plastic somewhere in the pad I guess because you could here it when you sat on it or turned over.
The pool was nice and not to crowded. There was ample chairs but only three umbrellas for shade. Still a very nice place.
On the down side is that we could not use either balcony. The first night there we sat in one of the plastic chairs and the leg broke off . We tried another chair and the legs started to buckle so we gave up.. We used to hang our wet clothes and towels on. The other balcony had very old frayed wicker furniture. The frayed part was very sharp and we were afraid the toddler would get hurt.
Like I said the condo was well furnished except there was only 6 forks barely enough for breakfast. So you had to do dishes after every meal.
You had to completely rinse every dish before you ran the dishwasher or food was stuck in cups and glasses.
As a side note we will not come back to Pensacola Beach because it took us 2 hours to go the final 10 miles to the beach. It was bumper to bumper traffic the whole way because of the toll booth. Locals say that most condos rent Sat to Sat so everyone comes down at the same time. My daughter flew down from St Louis and it was only a 2 hour flight then she had to wait 2 hours in the traffic.
This was by far the best location we have EVER had on a beach!! Red flag on the Gulf no worries... just go to the bay right behind you! We loved having both options for the water! Both easily reached within minutes! The condo was EVERYTHING we hoped for and then some. Plenty of items in kitchen to cook everything and bathrooms fully stocked too. Soaps towels spices.. it’s all there. Loved the beach chairs and umbrella and floats provided as well. We dined at Peg Leg Pete’s, Shaggys, Crabs, Whataburger, Tommy’s Snowballs, McGuires Pub and Doghouse Deli and will definitely go back to them all again!! I NEVER say this ... but we will DEFINITELY be back! We were planning on coming back before we even left! Is it too early to book for next June?!?!
We are so happy you had such a wonderful experience. All your comments are some of the reasons we also love it there. Thanks for staying with us.
I could not have been happier with the location and the condo. Condo was fully equipped with everything you could need and the location for a family with two children could not have been better. The owner's were a pleasure to deal with and gave great instructions and recommendations.
We were very happy to have your family stay with us and glad your experience was good. It really is a great location and very peaceful.
Very roomy, nicely appointed condo with excellent bay views from every window. Very convenient location. With four of us inside, it never seemed crowded. The pool was refreshing.
We are happy your family enjoyed the condo and views. Being able to watch the boats, sea life and even just looking at the lights across the bay at night is so relaxing. Thanks for staying with us and hope you make it back again.
The condo we stayed in was pretty basic but clean. The bed in the bedroom next to the back patio had a mattress cover that had a heavy plastic liner. Any time you moved it was loud and the mattress was uncomfortable. The other bed was comfortable. We could not get the spa tub to work and it wasn’t clean around the jets. The toilets look like the original toilets and did not flush very well. The outdoor patio was pretty small. We did not get the codes to the gate or door of condo emailed to us as we were supposed to. Staying at condos is new to me and my wife. This is our second stay at one. The first was in orange beach and they had employees working the front desk. I assumed there was going to be an employee here to give us what we needed. To my surprise there were no employees and no way to get ahold of anybody except by going threw the vrbo site. I messaged the owners twice with no answer back. This was around 5:00pm the evening of what was going to be our first night. My wife used her phone to find phone numbers which we called and they were no longer in service. Around 6:30pm I decided we were gonna have to go stay at a hotel. I had pulled out driving away from condo when my wife says I think I found the owners phone number. I pulled over and she called them for me. The call went to an answering machine and I was leaving them a message about who we were and that we didn’t have the codes to get in when a man picked the phone up. He was like okay are you at the door? I said no we can’t even get in the gate. I said we have been sitting out here trying to get ahold of some one. He kept trying to talk over me as I was trying to tell him what had been going on. He didn’t want to hear what I had been dealing with. He said I’m trying to give you the codes to the gate. I was upset from dealing with this for almost 2 hours so I gave the phone to my wife. He gave her the codes for us to get in. Then I received an email from his wife stating her records show that she sent me the codes. I did not receive them. She had to throw in that her records show she sent them. So needless to say our first evening was ruined. The complex was nice and clean. The area was very nice. I would recommend this condo. If you are staying in a condo make sure you have codes before you leave town if you need them . Do all of your asking ahead of time. It’s almost impossible to get ahold of anybody when you are on site.
This guest had an unfortunate arrival that delayed their entry due to a misunderstanding. Once he contacted us by phone it was less than 10 minutes until he entered the property. Even though both my husband and I apologized the guest was frustrated and angry and only wanted to vent instead of listening to the help offered.
The HomeAway website has all the information necessary for instructions to find and enter the properties. When you book you are invited to look at them and approximately 1 to 2 weeks prior to arrival you are again sent a reminder if you have not accessed the information. I usually send an additional letter welcoming the guests but I was out of the country until a few days before arrival and it was never delivered.
Since we have been doing this for over 20 years and this is the first time an incident such as this as happened I feel this process must work normally and most people could understand and accept some responsibility in this situation.
January in Pensacola Beach
Our view was the bay side of this condo and we enjoyed looking at it daily; the glass enclosed area was wonderful! We could walk the bay beach or walk across the road and be on the Gulf side to enjoy the white sands of that beach. There were parks on both sides. January weather was mostly in the upper 50's and there were few people in the area. The well maintained condo had a spacious, thoughtfully equipped kitchen which I appreciated. We were close to restaurants and could drive across the bridge to Gulf Breeze for groceries and Pensacola for the Naval Air Museum, historic buildings, and other shopping.
We are also very pleased to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay in the condo.
Het appartement bevindt zich een van de mooiste eilanden in alle van Fl. met zuiver wit zand zo fijn dat het piept als je loopt op. De locatie van het appartementencomplex is de beste op het eiland met het feit dat het de laatste complex op Ft. Pickens Rd. dat maakt het mogelijk om het strand hebben aan 3 zijden. U bent 1/2 mijl van de beste resterant / bar op Pensacola Beach [Peg Leg DIEREN] dat is een korte wandeling over de verharde fiets / joggen pad of u kunt de gratis trolley. De trolley kunt u ook vervoeren naar de promenade ongeveer 1. 5 mijl, het belangrijkste winkelgebied op het strand met andere restaurants, waaronder fijne diners. Lokale kunstenaars hebben winkels er evenals kledingwinkels en winkels voor strand accessoires. Vaak in het weekend lokale bands geven gratis concerten in het kleine openluchttheater in het midden van de Boardwalk. Dit gebied is op het water en heeft een jachthaven waar u bootjes, wave-runners, zeilboten ect kunt huren. Er is ook minigolf en go cart verhuur.
Andere activiteiten: Sommige van mijn favoriete dingen om die kosten niets te doen zijn beach-kammen kijken naar de boten varen vanaf het balkon van de flat, of op dinsdag kunt u kijken naar de Blue Angels oefenen vanaf het balkon ook. De zonsondergang vanaf het appartement is prachtig en als het donker is zal je zeker genieten van de verlichting en het licht huis aan de overkant van de weg. Ft. Pickens is ongeveer 7 mijl ten westen van de flat met niets tussen de flat en de Ft. Pickens behalve prachtige witte zand en zee haver, een deel van de duinen zijn twee verdiepingen hoog eraan te herinneren van de manier waarop de meeste van de stranden van Florida gebruikt om te kijken. Ft Pickens heeft veel gratis dingen te doen zoals handleidingen voor het verkennen van de Ft., Eco tours, ect. The Ft. heeft ook een vissteiger. Dit alles zonder het verlaten van het eiland!
Op het vasteland kunt u de wereldklasse Navy Air Force museum, de oude binnenstad van Pensacola. Ook een bezoek aan de wereldberoemde Joe Paddy's vismarkt.
Golf: Golf is beschikbaar op het prachtige Tiger Point golfclub op het schiereiland (Gulf Breeze) over de brug. De club is een 15 minuten rijden.
