Looking like something that belongs in Charleston, this carriage house Airbnb Plus apartment beautifully represents Pensacola’s historic downtown, with detailed wooden entry and ironwork lining the above balcony. So much refinement exists in the small space, such as travertine tiling in the bathrooms, and a farmhouse sink in the small yet functional kitchen.
Pensacola Beach is blessed with both ocean and bayfront property. This four-person suitable Airbnb is situated against the calmer waters of Little Sabine Bay, which can be enjoyed from the private patio and its convenient little breakfast bar. Inside, the interior is light and refreshing—perfect for a coastal getaway. An impressive pier and boardwalk loaded with shops are a brief walk away.
Catch this gem at the right time and it could cost you less than a budget hotel, a steal realized once stepping out onto the balcony to find a winding path leading directly to the emerald waters. Modernized and welcoming, the condo is equipped with wood-style flooring and traditional furniture.
Six guests can stretch out in the spacious open concept living and dining room while whipping up margaritas and a gourmet meal in the airy kitchen. Sit on the couch and gaze out the floor to ceiling windows. Outside, the covered balcony (more like a large porch) offers prime front row seats to the colorful show the Gulf of Mexico displays.
Chic beach vibes, a wine bar and an absolutely enormous kitchen make this Airbnb an ideal location for entertaining the family. But the jaw-dropping feature of this condo is the privacy, with a secluded dock, beach and pool being part of the dazzling deal.
Pensacola features a surprising amount of five star rated properties, with this being one of them. Inside is a classic “Florida beach condo”—fresh, coastal, yet traditionally cozy. Long afternoons and breezy nights can be experienced on the balcony. Gulf front and with views galore, five guests can melt away in this perfect space, which is completed with a lovely, sparkling pool.
Perhaps you’re looking for something different than what a beachfront condo has to offer. Immersed in an enchanting garden, this cozy apartment feels like a home away from home. At night, the plants and foliage light up for a mesmerizing show, adding a little bit of magic to a stay near the gulf. This little yellow abode is a breath of Florida sunshine.
A stand-alone home slightly inland, this Airbnb also breaks the condo mold. We love it’s Floridian style, which manages to take a refined look at the same time. The large front porch and backyard spaces present possibilities for fun summer nights with the family.
An earthy luxury style defines this huge home, right on the bay with its own, new private dock. Ten people can spread out among the lovely nautical designed rooms and commons spaces. Whitewashed walls and ship-like wood paneling collide with more upscale features.
Get ready to swoon—this majestic home, mere yards from the gulf waters, is what dreams are made of. Tuscan villa meets casita style and then goes full-blown mansion. On the third floor, glass walls open up to a devastatingly beautiful pool, complete with fountain, bar and swanky outdoor furnishings.
A proper terrace fit for a king (or queen), a kitchen with marbled countertops, and sleek wood grain floors and tiling that continues into the bathrooms—words hardly do this place justice. But if private sunbathing, water views and completely lavish surroundings are what you are looking for, you’ve found it.
