This stay was absolutely wonderful and would highly recommend! The location was wonderful and provides ample opportunities for different activities (bike riding, shopping, food, etc.). The rooms were quite spacious and allowed for many to stay in the beach house, as well as having a great design overall. I also loved the immediate access to the beach, of course!!! And the views from the windows or balconies were breathtaking. I would highly recommend staying in the home for your vacation!
Spent NYE at the Blue Paradise Beach House with friends and family. This home is spacious and comfortable with great views from two balconies overlooking the beach. Even with rain, the balcony is the place to be, listening to the crashing of the waves and the rain on the roof!The home has all the amenities of home and its warmth embraces you the minute you enter. Location is close to restaurants,shopping,entertainment, and churches.
This visit was only my second stay, but it certainly won't be the last. Will recommend this beautiful home away from home to all my friends. Til next time, thank you Blue Paradise for this memorable time.
Pros-This clean "on the water"location is located close to all the restaurants and business locations located on the island. It is well decorated and very comfortable for a "laid back" extreme Florida vacation experience. This home has a spacious open area to the ceiling with decorated walls of beach and fishing articles. The outside large deck is well equipped with a view in all directions of the Beach/water/shore line. The deck has a covered area for large seating for outside dining and great shaded area for relaxing. The deck is a great place for watching sunsets and sunrises and the beach area.
Cons- really no cons for adult vacationers. It does have stairs to navigate and smaller children, handicapped or over 70 adults may have a problem.
I have been honest in my descriptions and was direct in my assessment of this property.
It is a great place with a healthy attitude for those that wish for comfortable living with great view and close to the areas attractions.
We were WOWed by the value we got in this fabulous beach rental! It was perfect for our extended family to share gatherings in the great room with a spectacular view of the Gulf and free flowing kitchen and living area that opened to the deck.
I love the bright/happy colors and quality, unique decor. Best yet - everything was so well stocked and efficient in the kitchen and bathrooms! We all had privacy when we retreated to our bedrooms with awesome mattresses and bathrooms that were conveniently located.
We are already planning our next reunion here because everybody agreed - "We just can't beat the quality of this place". For our family, it felt like a spectacular home away from home. Thank you for an extraordinary stay...
We have been to Pensacola Beach over the years but never during Blue Angels weekend. We didn't know what to expect or where to stay.
We chose 1112 Ariola because of its location right on the beach and away from the public beach crowds. We couldn't have made a better choice.
The show was spectacular, and, we got to view it with our family of 10 right on the deck with plenty enough room to spread out. The outside area has table and chairs for 6 plus there is another table and 4 chairs in the garage. There is at least 6-8 chaise lounge chairs plus 4 adirondacks. Plenty enough seating for outdoor entertaining. There is also beach towels for guests. The outdoor area also has a covered porch, where the dining table is located so you can be sheltered from the sun or from the rain if you choose to stay outdoors.
There is afullsizelaundry room so you don't need to bring slot of clothes.
The house sleeps 10 comfortably with 2 on the sofa bed. There were more than enough sheets, pillows, and cover ups for everyone.
The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, etc, plus the view from the kitchen out to the Gulf is amazing. Not anything to complain about.
There is WIFI in the house, but we did t have much time for the computer. We spent most of our time outdoors on the beach or biking. The house does have a few bikes available in the garage for guests use. There are some beach chairs. Some floaters, an ice chest for the beach and some kids sand toys as well.
We think the owners tried to identify most guests needs. It is impossible to hit upon everything.
There are 4 bedrooms. 2 master suites with their own bathrooms. One bedroom has king size bed and the other 3 have queen size beds. I don't think they could have gotten another king bed upstairs, even though the bedroom upstairs is large enough. The upstairs bedroom has a patio with a couple of chairs to sit and star gaze if you'd like.
There is another full bath upstairs and a half bath on the first floor.
All in all, an amazing summer vacation. We will surely be back.
