Quiet & secure 1880's Victorian 2nd floor apartment in the heart of downtown Pensacola, just ten minutes from the beach with a private staircase & fully equipped kitchen. Beautifully decorated with local art & trees outside your window. Relax on the (first floor) front porch or back patio. Walk to the library & our vibrant downtown Pensacola scene, (one of America's 10 best). Check in at your leisure with the combination key lock box. Take a haunted house tour, & maybe see our resident ghost.

The space

Secure and quiet 2nd floor apartment with private staircase, heart pine floors and ceiling with a walk in closet and beautiful fireplace. The walls are filled with colorful works by local artists. The kitchen is fully equipped for short or long term stays with stove, microwave, large frig and includes coffee and fixings. Dish Satellite TV with Netflix and WiFi internet are also included. Pensacola was the first American settlement and is full of history and interesting museums. The library and downtown attractions are just a few blocks away, no car needed. The world's most beautiful beaches are a ten minute drive or take your bike for miles of beachfront bike trails. Pensacola was recently named one of the best small cities in the US and one of the "Best 10 Streets in America". We are a short walk from a vibrant street scene with amazing bars and restaurants. Downtown ghost tours are starting up in the fall, and just to warn you, several people have seen our resident ghost.

Guest access

Guests use the back door entrance that leads to a private staircase to access their apartment. There is a patio garden area with table and chairs just inside the privacy fence and guests are invited to hang out on the spacious first floor front porch. Beach essentials such as umbrellas, chairs, towels and a cooler are in the hall closet.

(PLEASE NOTE, you must be able to climb stairs and operate a combination lock to stay with us)

My girlfriend and me stayed for a few days at Lisa's apartment and we absolutely enjoyed it. It is so beautiful decorated, very clean and full equipped, you will find anything you need. There are many good restaurants in walking distance and it's close to downtown. Only "negative" point is that you need at least 20 minutes to the public beach by car, sometimes almost 40 when the traffic is bad.

Lisa was a wonderful host. She has a clean place close to downtown that allows you to walk everywhere. Lisa went out of her way to accommodate me and my husband when an emergency came up and she was very attentive to our needs. Highly recommend this place!

Thank you for your kind review Hao. We hope you didn't suffer any storm damage and maybe you can visit Pensacola again under better circumstances.

We turned our escape from Irma into a mini-vacation and took refuge here for 2 nights. Really nice and comfy accommodations exactly as advertised in a lovely renovated older home, in a nice quiet neighborhood with vibrant food, bar, and beach scene very nearby. We luckily got to meet Lisa as we arrived and she gave us a quick tour as we got settled-in. Take advantage of the lovely and semi-private patio out back. We loved Pensacola, our first trip to the city - we'll be back.

Response from Lisa:
Thanks for your kind comments and for leaving our place so neat and clean. It looks like your home is taking a direct hit from the storm, let us know if you need a place to stay on our way back. We'll work something out for you if you need a place to stay and we have space available. Florida is facing severe devastation.

My husband and I are avid sailors and love living on Florida's gulf coast. As a full time artist, I appreciate the art and music scene in Pensacola and love to visit galleries and listen to live music when traveling. We spend a couple of months a year overseas and the best part of traveling is sampling great food. I've always preferred staying in B and B's over hotels for that personal touch. We are pretty laid back and live in an eclectic neighborhood, can't stand subdivisions. We both enjoy the simple things in life and try to always seize the day.
