Gulf Gem in Pensacola Beach is about two things: whimsy and water. This two story vacation home is one-of-a-kind. Vibrant colors deck every room, and quirky details flow throughout. Plus, it’s directly across the street from the beach. This vacation home has full views of the dazzling aquamarine water.

To take in sweeping views of the Gulf, relax on the second or third floor balcony. A little sunshine, some sunglasses, and salty air make everything alright.

Inside, four bedrooms and three baths offer accommodations for nine guests. The master bedroom boasts a king, and the master bath features a walk in shower and whirlpool tub.  The remaining three bedrooms offer a queen and two sets of bunk beds.

So go ahead and plan a group getaway. Why not bring along the in-laws for quality time with the grandkids (and even sneak in a date night or two).

When it’s beach time (and when isn’t it?), head directly across the street to claim your spot in the sugar, white sand.
