My wife and I booked East Hill Bungalow #3 for a three day anniversary trip. The Bungalow itself was very nicely appointed, looking just like the pictures. The room was clean and comfortable, well appointed with a lot of attention to detail. We especially liked the outdoor sitting area. If you want to be close to major attractions and Pensacola and still have some privacy and quiet, this bungalow is a great choice.

East Hill Bungalows are located in the East Hill Historic area. The neighborhood itself is primarily old homes on large city lots with some really nice old growth landscaping. The Bungalow is located only about 1/2 mile from I-110 and is convenient to some local shopping.

Within one block is the Barnes Supermarket, a dated but fairly well equipped store which had most things that we needed. There is also a Family Dollar and a Laundrymat in the same complex. Across the street is the East Hill Market which offers various meal items. There is a lot of traffic at these locations but they were far enough away not to be a problem for us.

Two blocks away there you will find Krispy Kreme, McDonald's, Subway, Walgreen's and Popeye's. There are any number of restaurants within a five minute drive and Pensacola Beach is about 10-15 minutes away depending on traffic. We found the location to be convenient to everything we planned to do.

Bungalow #3 has a nice refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven, but there is really no setup for doing any cooking in the room. Also, the only sink is a small one in the bathroom, so unless you are content with light snack items you probably want to try to eat out.

Bungalow #3 had a lot of positives and very few negatives. The biggest issue for us was noise from Bungalow #2 next door. The guests there were not noisy, the problem is a door between the two bungalows which the owners have tried to soundproof but which still allows sound through. While we could not hear conversation we could hear coughing and noise when on the side of the room next to #2. The air conditioner in #3 is also a bit noisy which is actually not a bad thing as it cancels out noise from #2.

The owners were out of town traveling during our stay so we never got to meet them. But they have a nice place here and we really liked Bungalow #3. It was well appointed, convenient, and except for a few drawbacks was an excellent place to stay. And we thought it represented great value for the price. We would definitely stay there again.

This is a very good response as to our bungalow. There is no setup for eating in other than light cooking with the microwave and toaster oven. There is coffee though which helps getting through the mornings. We are traveling and wish we could have met you. When we return in September we will be working on the noise between the two rooms so that issue will be resolved. Thanks so much for your review and thanks for staying in our bungalow. Jack & Donna

This place is great. The owners put a lot of effort into making the bungalow clean, spacious, and welccoming. The bed is very comfortable and there is plenty of closet/drawer space. Bathroom is very cleaan and spacious. Everything is also new and in good condition. Clean and fresh towels and linens. The kitchenette is fully stocked operational. I would absolutely suggest staying here. It felt like home away from home as soon as we got there.

Booking a room via the Internet is rather like finding a lawyer via the yellow pages. You never really know if you are going to get Larry the Lounge Lizard or Perry Mason. East Bungalow is Perry Mason Plus. To pull into a soil parking lot next to a fire pit, with the glow of a light shining gently on your personal Guardian Flamingo, makes your heart warm with the feeling that you just got home. There's even an endearing feeling to know that the cozy decorating is not duplicated in the 400 rooms that surround you like it was at the Clarion. There's also a certain comfort in knowing that aunt and uncle are close by, a feeling not engendered by the 16-year-old manning the desk at the Clarion, bless her heart.

Whether your day has been filled with gator-gazing in Gulf State Park, grabbing a bite at Chet's in Pace, shopping in Destin, or swimming at Navarre Beach, there's no place like East Bungalow. With every intention to return, we remain fond of our Pensacola Port and its owners.

It's probably not politically correct to pick favorite guests, but these two guests rank among my favorites since we have been offering suites this past year. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves and shared that enjoyment with us. That is what we are all about; that and making people feel comfortable with their stay. We thank these guests for choosing us as 'their home away from home' and definitely hope they come to see us again. We also thank them for sharing their 'fun' and pleasurable stay with other guests.
