Location, location, location!!!
'Beach Haven,' as we call our home, has 3200 sq. feet and was built in 2006. It is the first home as you enter a gated community of 15 homes and HAS THE BEST LOCATION OF ANY RENTAL PROPERTY WE KNOW OF ON PENSACOLA BEACH!!! Walk a few steps to the beach, the pool, the bay, or the bike path - or just sit on the balcony and watch the waves, the sunset, the surfers, and the dolphins! The physical address for the home is 1 Calle Marbella, Gulf Breeze, Florida.
Beach Haven has beautiful, sweeping, unobstructed views of the beach from the large windows in every room of the house. The living area is much larger than in most homes, and all bedrooms are upstairs. Two King Master Suites are located in the “towers” and have attached large bathrooms. The West Tower Suite has a shower and a soaking tub, while the East Suite has a shower only but does have the added bonus of a door leading directly to the outside balcony.
The two Queen Bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower only. Both of these Queen bedrooms have a loft bed built in over the closet. These beds are appropriate for children ages 12 and up. It is your responsibility to determine if your child (or adult for that matter) can safely navigate the ladder up to the loft bed. We simply can’t be responsible for any falls due to the use of the loft beds. The King bedrooms have plenty of floor space to accommodate air mattresses, but the Queen bedrooms do not.
The “Surf Shack” is located down in the garage and has bunk beds with full on bottom / twin on top, a couch and a flat screen TV. This room is not near a bathroom, but seems perfectly suited for tweens/teens to stay up all night playing video games and texting. Additional sleeping areas are located on the main living area. The sofa is a queen sleeper, another chair pulls out into a twin bed, and a stylish bench is a cleverly disguised twin mattress
The beach is just a few feet away, however, you do have to cross a two lane road. Don't let this alarm you, the beach is VERY easy to access. I have stepped it off myself, and it is 100 steps from my door until I hit sand. A bike path runs right in front of the house also, so it is great fun and very easy to ride bikes into town. The pool is about the same distance from the house as the beach. It is shared by all the houses in the subdivision and ranges from 3.5 feet to 6.5 feet at its deepest. Then, you can walk right down to the bay, which is about a block.
The subdivision has a pier, and it is always fun to set out the crab trap. I’ve found that younger kids actually prefer playing in the bay area where there are less waves and lots of interesting creatures. Last year my kids found live sand dollars and collected and raced their own hermit crabs. I’ve also heard from my renters that the fishing from the pier is quite fun.

Our group had a great experience renting this property. The size of all the rooms fit the needs of all couples. The location was perfect for where we needed to be based on our past experiences. It was a plus that they had beach items already at the house that we could use since we all traveled by plane to get to Florida. The individuals in the group expressed that it could improve by having better internet service and to be able to lower the thermostat below 70 but overall I would say this was an amazing property and we all loved the rental!

Our family had the most amazing time staying here. The house was gorgeous with plenty of room for everyone and the views of the beach were breathtaking. The location was close to both the beach and the sound and the neighborhood pool was only steps away. Our area of the beach was not crowded which we loved. It was like our own little beach island. The owners were the best we have ever worked with and responded quickly answering all of our questions! We will definitely stay at Beach Haven again!!

Wonderful home loaded with beach toys, bikes, games, movies and a kitchen stocked with all tools a chef would need. Our family enjoyed each other’s company on the main floor as well as on the porch. With the teens enjoying the lower level to goof off and play pool or shuffle board to the rooms upstairs to have some privacy and quiet time. Location and property was more than expected. Great memories!!!
