Guestbook comments from the owner:

What a great space!! The apartment had everything we could possibly need and the art work and decor was just wonderfully done. It made the space even more inviting. The bed was incredibly soft and the water pressure in the shower?? OMG I wish OUR water pressure was that good at home! The architecture and construction of this home and other homes in the neighborhood make this a place to stay and check out the area. Almost like a walk in the Garden District in New Orleans...many of the houses are beautiful and have been there for a century or more. The location of the place also works well for checking out 5 Sisters Blues Bar and Restaurant which is only a couple of blocks away! Additionally, Pensacola has so many great little restaurants close to here it's a foodies dream! I would recommend staying here to anyone looking for a cool place to have an experience! And don't forget to hang out on the patio!

Lisa’s place is absolutely PERFECT! The location was walking distance to a lot of wonderful places, and the apartment was SUPER clean and cozy. There were catalogs with current events going on in the area, along with a binder that Lisa had put together with a list from A-Z on just about everything to try in the area. The little details really made this place so amazing! We felt very safe walking around. It is also about 15-20 minutes away from the beach. Stay here, and you won’t be disappointed. We can’t wait to come back!

Lisa's space is cute and cozy--a wonderful place for a relaxing retreat. Plenty of privacy and great attention to detail. I highly recommend staying here if you're traveling to Pensacola.


Sep 2018

Lisa has a gorgeous place in a gorgeous location, and is such a thoughtful and gracious host! The apartment is central to so many cool bars and restaurants downtown, and very close to Fort Pickens and Pensecola Beach. Overall a great location and a wonderful value! (Also, she has THE SOFTEST towels and sheets in the world!) Would happily return any day.
