We loved staying at Big O Beach! Upon arrival, the property was clean and had no maintenance issues. The kitchen had plenty of cookware and dishes to get us through the week. The townhouse is so big and spacious throughout, and I had a hard time packing up to leave! I wanted to just stay longer, but all good things must come to an end, right? I will definitely be coming back for my next stay!
Erin D. Jan 2023
The house was absolutely amazing! We will be back again!
Leslie B. Jan 2023
That it was almost directly on the beach
Tressa W. Jan 2023
We have traveled to several beach rentals over the years. Big Ole Beach is our favorite so far. Yes, it is a rental so we know that sometimes that means we may have a few bumps. Vacasa’s customer service during our stay was top notch. The space was perfect for our family & honestly we felt like we could have easily hosted several more family members because of the set up. This is the first beach rental that’s had its own garage. This was wonderful. We appreciated all the beach games and chairs. The bikes are a nice touch, too.

First of all, the view of the gulf was fantastic through all of the glass walls. The townhouse is very spacious and perfect for large groups. Now the down sides...No internet, no AC on the first floor, toilets run continuously without direct intervention, the upstairs tub drain stopped up and there is an underlying odor of dog pee, etc. The internet problem was only addressed the day before we left. In my opinion, this property is "just tired". What I mean is, it needs updating, with new toilets, HVAC units and "deep" cleaning.
Manager response:
Kelller, thank you for taking the time to share your review with us following your stay. We are sorry to hear of the issues you encountered during your stay. Unfortunately, there was an outlet switch that was off. Once that was flipped on, the internet was working again. Our records show our techs offered to visit the home the day after the issues were reported and you refused. Our techs went to the home the following day to assist you with these concerns. The A/C units were replaced in September and are working properly. A deep clean has been scheduled for this home as well. We hope we can have another chance to host you for a much more enjoyable stay!
Kim L. Nov 2022
Beautiful home , right in the beach . Very clean and super roomy. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels in bathrooms. Would love to stay here agai.
Jennifer B. Oct 2022
This home is beautiful and it is right on the beach! They provided lots of extras like bikes, chairs and sand toys for the beach. I do wish there had been beach towels available and couple more trash bags would have been nice but all in all it was a great stay and we would book again!
Belinda F. Oct 2022
Very clean and opened space and looking out to ocean from just about every room. Went to go ride bikes with friends and one of the seats was missing.
Angela C. Oct 2022
We loved the view from the living room and bedroom! It was so spacious and stocked to the hilt with extras you might need for the beach. Was a perfect place for our family to stay!
Karan H. Sep 2022
Beautiful home just steps from an amazing beach.
Sharon M. Sep 2022
This condo is spacious and well laid out. Our family of seven enjoyed the beach and nearby restaurants during our stay for a family reunion.
Franklin D. Sep 2022
Our timing was impeccable for 2 new air conditioning units were just installed prior to our arrival which was awesome due to the heat wave we are having. The home is well maintained and has everything one would need in a home away from home - and then some! Location is the absolute best for we relaxed on the deck and in the sand/beach right outside the door. Pensacola Beach is a lively, friendly place to be with yummy restaurants and fun activities. Peg Leg Petes is one of our favorite restaurants and they did not disappoint us once again. Enjoyed the bikes for a simple activity. We will be staying here again and recommend you do as well if you are looking for a wonderful, roomy spot on the beach - this is it!
Lee E. Aug 2022
The view is beautiful! The house is stocked well. Our whole family loved it until the air conditioning problem :( The down stairs unit never got below 79 degrees. (Upstairs was completely fine) We ended up having to be relocated to another unit in another town for the rest of the vacation. (We only spent one night at Big o Beach.) Tammy with Vacasa relocation services done an amazing job meeting our needs. It was just a hassle to move everything around with 10 people!!!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, Lee. We are sorry for this last-minute shift in plans. We make every effort to host our guests as planned, and offer relocation services should any disruptions occur. We hope that the alternative home offered was a more suitable replacement on short notice and appreciate your understanding and flexibility during these unforeseen circumstances. We do hope for another opportunity to better impress you next time.
Big ‘O' F. Jul 2022
Loved the accommodations provided by Big O Beach/Pensacola!!! We purchased this through a fundraiser for KAYKAN. The home was right on the beach. Very spacious. Truly a home away from home. Full kitchen with all the dishes needed,stove, refrigerator and additional refrigerator in the 2-car garage!! Full size washer/dryer. Bathrooms equipped with towels. Games in the living room for all ages. Bikes to ride, tons of beach items for your enjoyment. I honestly can't say enough good things about this rental. We will definitely be returning!!!
Mendy A. Jul 2022
The location could not have been any better!! Loved the two car garage! Ample space inside the home. Loved the extra fridge in the garage. The stairs were a little difficult for a woman with back issues but I knew there were stairs beforehand. The Blue Angels, dolphins, rainbows were all highlights of my trip. I would like to talk to management about some upkeep issues but this isn’t the place. It was a home I hope to book again, for sure.
Manager response:
Mendy, thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback, we are glad to hear you enjoyed the amenities and location of our condo. Please feel free to email us with any concerns you have and they will be passed on to the local manager. We hope to host you for another truly carefree and great vacation in the future!
Ben C. Jun 2022
Beautiful beachfront property with great views and very clean. Highly recommend staying here and will be back in the future!
Becky B. Jun 2022
We were adults and children. The size was perfect for us with easy access to beach.
Emily F. Jun 2022
This place was amazing! Great location and views. We're actually local to Pensacola but this beautiful stay made it a true vacation. They had everything we needed for all meals, fun things to do, and of course the beach as the backyard. We will definitely be back!
Kathleen L. May 2022
Vacasa representatives were so nice to work with. The condo is fully stocked with everything you could think of. This is our second time at this property and we plan to stay annually for many years.
Wayne J. May 2022
Plenty of room, great views, lots of amenities and they are quick to respond. Bicycles were used a lot! Easy walk to beach.
3 private bedrooms! Showers were tremendous. Everything you would expect at the beach house but bring your own beach towels. Very relaxing!!!
Jacquelyn P. Dec 2021
Nicely decorated. Very spacious. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you might need.
Laura S. Dec 2021
The location, spacious rooms and well equipped kitchen.
Michael M. Nov 2021
This vacation home had all the comforts of home! We had a blast! It was furnished beautifully and had plenty of room for a large family! We will be back!
Kristi H. Oct 2021
This place is amazing !!!!!
Bryan B. Oct 2021
The space was perfect for our family of 12. The grandkids loved the beach and the Condo.
Julie S. Oct 2021
This house was beautiful. It accommodated our party with plenty of space to spare. The location to the beach was fabulous. Tremendous views from the main living area, master bedroom and loft. Two decks as well. Decorations throughout the house were nice as well. I would definitely return with our family. Loved it.

The only downside for us was that there was an electrical issue in the master bedroom as soon as we arrived. Notified rental office. Electric issue was resolved after two calls. I would have given 5 stars had it not been for the electrical issue.
Tina D. Jul 2021
The unit was spacious and the distance to the beach was great. The views were also amazing.
Kathleen L. Jun 2021
This was a fantastic property. The owners thought of everything. Will definitely stay again.
Danielle M. Jun 2021
Gorgeous, clean, right on the beach, perfect layout , well stocked, and so much more. If this beach house is available, you better snatch it up!!! 5 stars!!!!
Kristin K. May 2021
We stayed for eight days at this lovely Pensacola Beach Condo. The condo was right on the beach, about 100 steps out the back door and your feet are in the water. The beach was pristine when we got there, a storm rolled in for a couple days and so did the seaweed, but it wasn't a big bother in the long run. Don't pack much because the owners have thought of EVERYTHING!!! The decor and beds are VERY comfortable. There are plenty of washcloths, hand towels and bath towels in addition to about 6 or 7 beach towels. They have a very nice washer and dryer so I packed several laundry detergent tabs and did several loads of laundry reducing our packing by quite a bit. There are several beach chairs (we had coffee on the beach each morning), sand toys (shovels, pails, floats, sand mats, etc) galore for kids and even a big flashlight that our daughters took out at night looking for crabs on the beach! They have a terrific coffee station with a full size Coffee Maker (Black + Decker, I think) which uses the round (not cone) full size filters. I packed some filters and the coffee I like, but there's also a Kurig if you're into that. There are at least 10 insulated mugs, wine tumblers and water bottles to take on the beach. The kitchen is completely stocked with all your cooking needs (Toaster, Glasses, plates, silverware, etc.) Due to Covid, they can't keep any previously used spices or condiments on the property, so just a tip - bring your favorite spices, salt and pepper along or you will have to purchase. Speaking of groceries, there is a Publix close by but pricey, we drove to the closest Walmart to stock up on food. There is a propane grill on the deck and we grilled fish and steaks while there. (Hint: make the drive to Pensacola and get fresh fish at Joe Patti's Seafood Market and then not to be missed is the Butcher Shoppe close to the airport for amazing meats!) Before we arrived, the forecast predicted 5 days of Thunderstorms, and if that happens to you, don't be disappointed, it's beach weather and we found out the little storms (if any) pop up in the afternoon and are gone within a few hours. One day there was 90% chance of rain and we didn't have one drop! If you do have a rainout day, don't worry, there is cable TV, Family DVD's, board games and even books left by previous guests. The management Company Vacasa was very helpful. The main bathroom lever broke while we were there and a maintenance person was there within a couple hours to fix it. Vacasa supplies one dish detergent tab, hotel size soap, shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom. So if you plan on doing more than one load of dishes you may want to bring some more tabs. I knew ahead of time that there were hotel sized soaps and shampoos so I packed a full sized shampoo and conditioner. A huge bonus is the Extended 2 car garage, it was so helpful to have garage parking the day it did rain and we were bringing in groceries. Oh, and they have 4 adult size bikes with baskets. We rode all around town one day on them. There is even a child-sized bike (probably big enough for a 5-10 year old). I can't say enough positives about this condo. We have a family of 5 (3 teens) and 2 grandparents came to stay for several days as well. Everyone had PLENTY of room to spread out, relax and have fun (on our rainout day, our girls were able to do homework remotely with no problem connecting to Wi-Fi). The property management company is quick to respond and the owners are thoughtful in every way. If you're looking for a comfortable, beautiful space to enjoy your vacation right on the beach, THIS IS THE PLACE! We will be back for sure :-)

They’ve though of everything you want in a beach vacation. Beach needs, cooler, koozies, mats and toys. Ice maker even! The kitchen is well stocked and the furniture is great. A few issues that have easy fixes - the master bath exhaust fan is out (and was when we stayed here in October 2020). This time the microwave shorted frequently, though the toaster oven was a suitable backup for our needs. And though we followed instructions to ensure the AC didn’t freeze up, the top floor rarely got below 77 and was not producing cool air. The air filters were in dire need of replacement as well. Some attention to these electrical issues would greatly improve the comforts in an otherwise ideal set-up!
Manager response:
Hi, Brian! The needed microwave part and vent fan are on order, and the air conditioner and filters have been addressed. Thank you for staying with us!
Hilary S. May 2021
This condo was amazing and true to the pictures. I don't think I have ever stayed at a place that was so fully furnished with anything you would need during your stay. The management company was top-notch as well. I will be referring Big O Beach to my clients.

This place was amazing! Great view, loved the coffee bar. Beach supplies and toys in the garage. The kids loved the loft upstairs. Can’t wait to book again!
Cynthia M. Apr 2021
The unit is very clean and has plenty of space. I loved the fact it had a garage. It also has so many extras that you can use at the beach ( chairs, beach towels, bike etc.) The porch would be a lot nicer if there were something like a dividing wall between each unit. Overall it’s a very nice place.
Miguel G. Feb 2021
The view was amazing as well as the amazing water and sand.
Robert M. Dec 2020
Good location and floor plan. Suggestions would be better written instructions how to operate TV's and remove lock from water heater in loft to be able to access.
Kevin F. Nov 2020
Well kept, spotless and great location. Loaded with everything for a weeks stay, from kitchen supplies to beach gear.

My only complaint was that the actual price turned out to be twice the nightly cost. I understand taxes, but all the additional fees doubled the listed price.
Eileen H. Nov 2020
I loved the new furniture, the ample flatware and drink vessels, and the SPACE (inside and out). The owner thought of everything . . . . bikes, beach supplies, etc. We will definitely be back.
Don W. Nov 2020
The home was much roomier than expected. We truly loved our visit and the only negative was having to leave. The location is perfect, just steps from the beach. Supplied with everything one needs for an enjoyable stay. New patio furniture had just arrived and it is awesome! Very well equipped inside and out. Most importantly, the home was very clean! We mainly cooked ourselves and enjoyed eating on the outdoor deck, that view! We ate at Peg Leg Pete's and it was delicious! Already booked time here for next year!
Nathan N. Oct 2020
Love it!!!! My family enjoyed every second at this house. It is a very clean and well maintained beach house. Definitely coming back next year!
matthew b. Oct 2020
The condo was so much more incredible than we were anticipating. Very clean and overly comfortable even for our large family of 12. Really nice private beach, with Breath taking views off both decks. Excellent area with Several really good restaurants very close to the condo. This will become our vacation spot in October from here out.
Herman O. Sep 2020
We arrived when Hurricane Sally was suppose to go elsewhere. Sally decided to visit us as well with her winds topping at 110 MPH. Thankful the Big ‘O’ Beach has storm windows and is constructed of cement! Lost electricity, cable and water for just a few hours. All returned quickly and we enjoyed our family time. Time spent was not as planned, but perfect! We played games, watched movies, did crafts (huge table great for crafts or puzzles), caught the sunrise on the beach in PJ’s, hunted seashells, met new friends, cooked together (great kitchen) and ate on the patio or smaller table by the window (what a view), rode bikes provided and helped a bit with hurricane clean up. There is the cutest coffee/wine bar area with either a regular coffee maker or Keurig, an ice maker, a wine rack and a cabinet of all type insulated cups to use to keep your drink hot or cold, quite convenient! The airport closed due to the hurricane and we were delayed leaving. Vacasa and Southwest Airlines worked very well with us and made the delay easy to handle. We enjoyed our bonus time! Truly a little oasis even amidst a storm. What a memorable get-a-way! Already booked our next vacay back!
Tricia G. Sep 2020
What a great location and the view is amazing. We loved being on the beach and a 10-15 minute walk to restaurants in both directions... Peg Leg Pete’s is out favorite. We really enjoyed the bikes provided and that this unit was dog friendly. The unit was beautifully decorated in grays and yellows throughout. We definitely will be back.
Meghan S. Aug 2020
Clean, spacious, and directly on the beach. BigOBeach has everything one could possibly want or need! Looking forward to coming back!
Ronnie M. Aug 2020
This is the first time that I’ve ever been to the beach and stayed in a House or rather town home. Stayed Mon-Fri. This kind of looked little older from the backside. Pleasure to have a nice spacious 3-4 car garage (de- pending on size) to pull into. The inside of the Town Home was very well kept, spacious for up to 12 people or more (we only had 4) Very clean, updated, multi-bedrooms and full bathrooms. I don’t think you could ask for anything better. Everyone was pleasantly surprised. Great ocean front beach access! Great views from ocean front living room, 2nd story bedroom and 3rd story loft bedroom. This had All the comforts of home and well stocked supplies😃. Really felt at home, safe environment and surroundings. Big gas grill, charcoal grill, lounge chairs, table w/umbrella and chairs on ocean front deck.
Only drawback- no privacy curtains for the living room, no privacy on the deck if you wanted it. all townhomes decks are joined with separate spaces and own staircases to the beach.
Overall- I would give it a 5 out of 5! Definitely would stay here again! And we really enjoyed our vacation!
Ps. I would not give a 5 unless I thought you deserved it ! They deserved it!
Robert B. Jul 2020
This place has it all. We were rained out for 3 consecutive days. The entire living space was perfect for 10 people to watch t.v.,play cards, cook, plus there were board games for adults and kids. Smart TV's to sign into.I was worried about the rain and being cooped up, but there was plenty of activities and space inside. The last day was beautiful. Located in the garage there were plenty of supplied beach chairs and sand toys for kids. Even a little mini fridge in the garage for a quick ice cold drink run from the beach. It was most convenient having the water at your door step and outdoor shower for rinsing off beach sand. I will be back next Year.
