Vintage, Dog-Friendly Cottage with Ocean Views - 150 Feet from the Beach!

Get a taste of classic beach style with this cozy rental just steps from the Gulf of Mexico! Built in 1954, this one-story, dog-friendly home boasts everything you could need for a memorable getaway, fantastic views of the water, and enough space for the whole family to enjoy. This is the spot for you if you're looking to get away from it all. The house is located on Pensacola Beach, 10 miles south of Pensacola and accessible by a toll bridge and scenic drive out across the warm waters of the Gulf. Bring a book, a beach towel, and your swimsuit, and get ready to relax among the sand and surf. Beach chairs and umbrellas are on us - feel free to borrow them from the house.

From the moment you arrive, you'll want to kick off your shoes and hit the beach. With the dunes just 150 feet from your front door, you'll be at the water's edge in no time. Inside, the house combines a vintage charm with modern conveniences. Spread out on one of the two comfy couches to watch TV or play a board game, or hook up the PlayStation 3 for a family competition. The attached kitchen comes fully equipped with pots, pans, and all the appliances you'll need to cook some delicious evening meals - including a gas grill out back for a beachside barbecue! Take your dinner up to the deck for a truly unforgettable dining experience.

With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, this rental is ideal for a family or multi-family vacation as it sleeps up to nine guests (six adults maximum, please). The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a private bathroom, while two other bedrooms are furnished with queen beds. The fourth bedroom has two sets of bunk beds for the kids. And with a small nightly pet fee the house is suitable for dogs, so your furry friends can enjoy romping along the beach as much as you! Blue skies, soft sand, and the sound of the waves - what else could you want? Book now to begin your spectacular ocean escape!

What's nearby:
Although this part of Santa Rosa Island has grown slightly more developed in recent years, it remains fairly isolated and the perfect spot for a quiet beach getaway. The Emerald Coast features some of the most breathtaking beaches in the entire country, with pure white sand and gently lapping waves. Restaurants and grocery stores are limited on the island, so we recommend stocking up on food in Pensacola or Gulf Breeze before you arrive. That way, you can enjoy your idyllic stay uninterrupted.

If you do feel like a change of pace, there's plenty to explore back on the mainland. Explore beautiful downtown Pensacola, with its Southern-themed food trucks, Crepe Myrtle-lined streets, and laid-back atmosphere. Step back in time with Historic Pensacola Village, a restored living history museum with costumed interpreters and hands-on exhibits. Or catch a local baseball game at the Pensacola Bayfront Stadium, home to the Blue Wahoos.

The house was very spacious and accommodating. It had everything we needed and was so close to the beach that we could walk back and forth with ease. Nice back yard for kids to play.
Marilyn Joy R. May 2021
It was perfect for the dogs with the fenced in back yard! But we had hot water heater problems and the staff tried to fix it. They sent a plumber out to replace it, but it still wasn’t right and he came out a couple of more times just to blame us or the age of the house on the problem. Vacasa did partially reimburse us for our trouble! The house has a lot of potential and was close to the beach access, just wish the owner would spruce it up more on the inside.
Vickie B. Mar 2021
The closeness to the beach. The bed in the master was uncomfortable, the grass could've been cut down, and rat's were coming out when we were sitting out back grilling
Manager response:
Hi, Vickie! Unfortunately, we cannot cut the grass down for our guest since it is protected. We will, however, add a mattress pad. Thank you!

If you are looking for a dog friendly no-muss no-fuss type of place, this is it.
I was there for my employer all week so didn’t get to go to the beach. But my dogs seemed happy when I got back there in the evenings.
There were plenty of bedrooms but I only used one of them and stayed in about half the house. The kitchen had just about everything I needed and it was very convenient to the beach while being just across the street. I could hear the surf which was nice.
What it lacked in exterior landscaping and froufrou stuff, it made up for in utility and coziness.
I rolled up the one area living room carpet when I forst got there so there would be no concern with the dogs. I was specifically glad that the floors were not carpet but epoxy coated concrete. About the only thing that could have improved it (dog-wise) was to have the back fence a bit more secure...I think it was missing a few pickets. The perfect place for me has a back yard access where I can let the dogs out and not have to stand there to be sure they don’t go thru holes in the fence. This place I had to stand there and watch. Not a biggie though.
If I have to work there again I would surely stay here! It wish I had some kids to bring next time and put those other rooms to use.
Francesca S. Jan 2021
This little cottage was perfect for us. It was exactly what we needed. The location was perfect. We walked to dinner, shops, and the beach. We had a great week.

Close to beach
Forrest B. Aug 2020
The location is nice, but the cabin needs work. There is a huge hole in the bondo repair job around the drain in the tub that will cut your foor. The AC unit will not keep up in the heat of the day and the grass is waist high in the front and back. There is so much sand ans debris piled up near the front door that ir can not be opened all the way. There were 3 large garbage cans full of waste out at the end of the driveway that hadn't been picked up and the whole front of the place smelled of the rotting seafood in the cans. I expected to find thi gs much better, especially after the very high "cleaning" fee I was forced to pay.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Forrest. We apologize for the issues you experienced, and we encourage guests to reach out to our management team during their stay should any assistance be needed. If you need assistance during your stay, call guest services at 503-345-9399 24/7. We hope to provide a more comfortable stay in the future!
Shontelle B. Aug 2020
House was spacious, backyards with fence so your dog can run around, top deck was nice to sit at during the mornings and evenings. Short walk to beach, quiet neighborhood, And beach was not crowded. She’d in the back full of toys, chairs and a tent (but it’s about on its last leg) Gas grill on the back! The home is not anything fancy and could use some updating but we were hardly in it so it didn’t bother us!
LISA B. Oct 2019
This home is perfect for a fast and fun family get away!!
Brittany F. Jul 2019
This house was truly a hidden gem at this price point. Location was perfect. Close enough to restaurants but still far enough away from the crowds. Beach was not overcrowded at all. The house had a lot of charm. Love the concrete floors and wood ceilings. The shed in the back full of beach stuff was amazing! Full size washer and dryer was an added bonus. Would definitely stay here again
LINDA S. May 2019
This house was perfect for our family and sister's family. We used all nine spaces to sleep and didn't feel crowded. The beach was amazing! Definitely want to visit again! 😁
Rebeca R. Mar 2019
The house was a perfect size for 3 couples, 3 children and 1 dog! Had everything you need!
Bonnie Y. Mar 2019
Enjoyed being in home atmosphere, well stocked, clean, washer, dryer. 1 block away from beach. Our dog loved it, yes there are burrs in the yard, took him down the street. Would stay here again. Thank you.
Shawn D. Dec 2018
Great location with close proximity to the beach and all of the restaurants.
Patricia A S. Sep 2018
Great location, good space, convenient food attractions and shopping
Season M. Jul 2018
Needs a few small things taken care of (master bath needs a new shower head and vent, back porch light needs fixed). Other than that the house is in a great location with a great view from the sun deck. The beach is gorgeous with no crowds to fight. Lots of yummy restaurants and good shopping close by. Our family made some amazing memories! We would definitely book again!!

Cozy little place with great views and beach access. I even enjoyed the outdoor shower after a swim
Carrie H. Apr 2018
Nice home (larger than pictures), amazing views, just a few feet from the beach, and just minutes from other beaches and shops and restaurants. My family had an amazing time here.
Bo C. Feb 2018
We've been to a few different places in this same area over the years and had a fantastic time. Super close to the beach, plenty of room for house full of people. Dogs enjoyed sun bathing on the porch but yard is typical beach mess. Had everything we needed and and best part we all had a great time for an affordable price.
Jennifer W. Feb 2018
Loved this house! Beautiful views and so close to the beach. This house was perfect for my family and exactly where we needed to be!!
Ashley S. Feb 2018
I loved it and I was sad to leave.
Louis K. Dec 2017
The home appeared larger and nicer in the photos - while the home did work for us we were typically only there to sleep and shower, had we needed to spend more time in the home we would have been a bit cramped. We did very little cooking either so we really could not comment on the kitchen or its functions and fittings.
ROBERT R. Nov 2017
The location to the beach and local restaurants and attractions is great. However, the property is not as nice as the pictures would suggest.
Angela H. Nov 2017
This was a great house for two couples and a baby. The amenities within the house are good, but you need to pack extra stuff for your stay which include beach towels and chairs. We look forward to coming back...just need to pack a little more! The house is located by the beach as stated and it's an easy walk to a rather quite spot on the beach with lots of room! The deck has great views too!
MaryAnn R. Sep 2017
We loved the vintage charm, it felt very cozy. Location to the beach was wonderful. There is a 365 degree view from the rooftop including both gulf and sound. Lots of beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes and outdoor furniture are available in the shed. Linens provided were very soft and comfortable with plenty of comfortable pillows. It was great being able to bring our dog for a reasonable fee. We had a great time blending family and celebrating a military promotion. We would consider renting again when we are back in the area.
Madhukar N. Aug 2017
The house is good for a small vacation. Overall it was looking good and clean inside the house but not so much on the outside (weak wooden rails and pillars).
Megan F. Aug 2017
We stayed in the cottage with 7 people and 2 dogs in our party. We loved the fenced in back yard for the dogs! We did our grocery shopping at Walmart and Publix, not far away, and enjoyed not having to eat out all the time. We grilled out, etc. I also enjoyed having my coffee every morning up on the sun deck. We a great time and it was also great for my elderly mom, because there weren't any stairs for her to deal with. She was also able to walk to the beach because it was so near. We would stay here again for sure!!
Leo S. Aug 2017
We loved the access to the beach, the rooftop deck, the fenced in yard for our dog, the beach chairs and the umbrellas, the way the house was set up. WE ACTUALLY SAW THE BLUE ANGELS PRACTICING!!! AMAZING TO US! This was perfect for our family vacation and we hope to rent his same house in the future!
Shirley K. Jul 2017
If you have animals or don't this is the perfect place for a getaway.
Well done,
