PELICAN PERCH @ PENSACOLA BEACH

Lovely Place; Perfect Vacation/Getaway

What a fun house! My whole (extended) family loves to come here every chance we get. There's always something to do, and the layout is such that it's easy to find a quiet place to think, read, or converse. The loft balcony is my favorite spot, but the two main decks are perfect for picnics and people watching. My daughter prefers the lower living room ... and the beach ... and the teens like being able to catch the trolley practically outside the back door to go to the boardwalk.

Fun Place

I recently spent a long weekend at The Perch and loved it. It's a quirky building we'd always referred to as the "Weinerschnitzel House" because of its shape, but it is surprisingly roomy and bright inside. (We were amazed, in fact.) The beach was Perfect, and the neighbors were friendly. I can't wait to come back.

Perfect!

Stayed for a long weekend and got to watch a race and a wedding from the balcony while enjoying beautiful weather and crystal clear water. I know the house didn't make any of that happen, but it sure was fun. Thank you!

Don’t judge a book by its cover!!!

I came to Pensacola to get married June 4th 2016. The hotel accommodations we had set up for us and our families and our bridal party did not work out due to the lack of professionalism and organization on the hotels part. So my

Now wife and I searched on VRBO and found a house that slept 19 and was in the perfect location for us. We called and text Monica around 10:00 PM. We knew it was late and honestly didn't expect to get a response but low and behold she did respond. Throughout that night and the early morning hours of June 2nd, she attentively helped my wife and I book her house for all of our bridal party and ourselves ( all the while while she was on a business trip). The house itself from the outside does not look like much and it honestly doesn't look like it can sleep 19 people, but as soon as you walk through the doors it is a thing of beauty. It's very accommodating in every aspect and its location couldn't be more perfect for what we needed and were looking for. Although a little pricier than others, it's well worth it for what they provide. Troy and Monica both were very responsive with us before, during, and after our stay at their place. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here and we will for sure be coming back one day! Thanks Monica and Troy!!

Completely redone home practically on the beach

My wife and I took my 80-year-old mom along with her four of her grandchildren to the beach. Our kids ages are 24, 20, 14 and 10. The space was more than accommodating and easily sleeps over 20. It easily has four different outdoor spaces. The kitchen is wonderful along with its massive family space. Everything is brand-new inside and clean. I cannot recommend it enough. My mom even made it over to the beach three times. I will certainly book this space again!

Loved this place!!!!!

This was a wonderful place to stay!!!! It was in a great location for everything we wanted to do. The house was nice and there was more than enough room for our family. I loved how you walk out the back door and a few steps later you were at the beach. All around I can't wait to come back so we can stay at this house again!!

Memories In The Triangle House!!

Helen Keller said it best when she said "I could never stay long enough on the shore; the tang of the untainted, fresh, and free sea air was like a cool, quieting thought."

Thank you for giving my family and I a beautiful place to make memories together. Memories that will certainly last a lifetime. We all loved your home and the cottage feel that it has. Pensacola has definitely stolen our hearts. This was our first time in a beach house with the whole family. We usually stay in a condominium and constantly battle the lines at the elevator. Even loading and unloading our vehicles can be such a hassle. We didn't have to stress over any of that this beach trip and it was wonderful! The walk to the beach was an easy access and my grand babies loved playing in the sand, hunting for crabs and if they could have I believe they would have taken all of the sea shells off of the beach and brought them right back home. They had the neatest experience while swimming in the ocean one day. A family of dolphins swam by, not too far from them. One of my grand daughters wants to be a dolphin trainer when she grows up so she really loved seeing them!

As I said before, we all loved your home but I think one of our favorite places was the balcony off of the kitchen/living room area. We would all gather there, especially at night just to fellowship and reminisce about days ago. Thank you so much for creating such an inviting atmosphere for us. We could feel the warmth and love and I hope we left love there for you too. My youngest grand still asks "when can we go back to the triangle house?"

AMAZING beach house

Went to the beach with a big group of friends. This house was perfect - very close to the beach, big living room/kitchen area everyone was able to hang out in the one day it rained. Another plus is that the bedrooms were separate from the living room, and pretty soundproof for people who like their sleep (or babies if you bring them). The owner was very nice, easy to get in touch with, and very accommodating. The house looks even better in person, I would not hesitate to book it again for a big group. Wish I was back at the beach!!!!

Perfection! Cannot wait to go back.

We checked into the Pelican Perch for a week with our swim team (for a training trip). The house had a great layout, was steps away from the beach, and top-of-the-line. We couldn't have been more pleased with our home for the week. But more impressive than the house, was the excellent response and customer service we received while there. I felt a bit like a high-maintenance client with several of the questions we had, and at the last minute we decided we wanted to order pay-per-view. The owners were quick to respond, incredibly helpful and a pleasure to deal with all week. We polled our exhausted swimmers at the end of the week about their experience, and they all want to come back to the Pelican (as they called it) next year. Don't hesitate to rent this home - it is beautiful and the owners are wonderful to deal with. Sad to leave, but can't wait to return!

Gorgeous beach house great for big families – perfect location!



Our family absolutely loved Pelican Perch. It accommodates our 10 adults & 4 kids very comfortably (and affordably!) We were thrilled at the proximity to the boardwalk that leads to beach. We spent most of our time out there & were close enough that a set of walkie talkies was our communication with the house ("Bring snacks! Forgot the sunscreen!") It was a dream come true! We have already been talking about coming back! Thank you so so much Porter family. All your hard work in remodeling this place is deeply appreciated by this crew. We love it!

My Happy Place



My family and I had a wonderful vacation while staying at The Pelican Perch during the July 4th holiday/week. The house is surprisingly larger than you would think with plenty of spacious rooms. My grandchildren played on the new 2nd floor deck for hours - it makes a perfect playpen. Then a very quick walk over the boardwalk and you are at the beautiful beach. Forgot something? No problem because the house is just right there. And as an added pinch yourself bonus, we got to watch the Blue Angels practice for their airshow while sitting on the deck and even the beach. That was amazing. Thank you for a memorable vacation. We will be back!

Best vacation ever!



My husband and I just stayed at Pelican Perch with out 7 children for a week. The home was just lovely. Like a cozy cottage on the beach! It was obvious that there was a lot of thought and love put into the details. We felt so blessed to have the beach be such a short walk away....especially when we watched so many have to drive and park their cars just to enjoy the waves. Our mornings were spent sipping coffee on the deck while taking in the sights and sounds of the ocean. Our evenings, on the patio enjoying dinner together. There is so much about this home to love! The spacious rooms were ideal for our large family. The children found puzzles to play and books to read. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to make our meals each night. The beds were cozy and decorated with the sweetest sheets and quilts. Bathrooms were plenty! Best of all was that Monica was ready and available to answer any questions we had! It was the perfect vacation to make the best family memories! We cannot wait to return to Pelican Perch! We definitely left a piece of our hearts there!

Perfect Beach House for Small Wedding!



This house is absolutely AMAZING and Monica the owner is even more AMAZING! We were looking for a beach house option to hold our small wedding reception and this was the perfect place! The public beach access point is directly across the street making it extremely close and convenient. We held our wedding ceremony on the public beach and used the wood walkway as the perfect ceremony entrance! The reception was held in the large paved driveway area. We had about 50 guests fit comfortably with lots of extra room! We even rented a tent that fit amazingly in the space. The home had 3 bedrooms on the first floor and one on the third floor. These rooms all came with cute/beachy decorations and were immaculately clean when we arrived. The second floor was the perfect hang out area with a large kitchen (separate ice machine!) and large living room with amazing water views. The decks...can't say enough about how wonderful they are! They've since been rebuilt and made larger from the pictures posted on this site. Thank you so much for allowing us to have our wedding at your home. It is truly a spot we will remember forever!

Such a great house!! Feels like home on the beach.



We had a great time at Pelican Perch!! It is so much roomier inside than it "looks". It was the perfect house for our moms and daughters trip. Everyone agreed it felt cozy, and welcoming and loved the location. The view and just steps to the beach access are fantastic. Multiple decks make it easy to get sun or be in the shade. The decks... just awesome!!! TONS of parking space. The views are great. The multiple beds/bunks/bed styles and arrangement of rooms makes it perfect for groups and multiple families and kids. Plenty of bathrooms for everyone. Tons of hooks for wet suits and towels. The kitchen is SUPER well stocked and it is quite nice to find extras that usually get thrown away from previous guests -like salt and pepper!! Its so convenient to have 2 fridges!! Laundry room (huge) is great and there are beach towels to use which is nice as well. The kitchen table is large and so fun and easy to gather for meals and games. There are blankets around to use on sofas and beds. We had no issues at all with temperature control or anything else working in the home. House was totally clean and comfortable. Upscale appliances. The decor is cute, fun and beachy. The book about the families heart,soul and hard work that went into this house is amazing and so cool to see. They did an incredible job. Monica was so easy to work with, quick to respond and so welcoming and helpful. Thanks for a great stay and great home!!
