Cottage - 2 Bed/1 Bath - Great location
About Cynthia Tant
I love to travel so Home Away is a great way to find unique places to stay. I just recently purchased the large historical home and divided it into 4 units. Two are used for Short Term rentals, one for a Long Term rental and one for my Real Estate Brokerage, Gulf Coast Home Experts. Love meeting people and making sure they have a great experience while visiting Pensacola.
Cynthia Tant purchased this House in 2018
Why Cynthia Tant chose Southeast Pensacola
I purchased this property primarily to be directly behind my elderly mom. She's 87 years old and going strong but I like being very close to her. This is my personal home but I rent it out to others so they may experience our beautiful East Pensacola Heights neighborhood.
What makes this House unique
There is a great back yard fully equipped with Bar-B-Que and patio furniture. Walking distance to the bayou, if you'd like to kayak, relax by the water and see the beautiful sunsets. My brother also has a "Food Forest" garden in the yard directly behind. So mossy over and say hello, he'll give you a tour.
100% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Cute and cozy
Nice place for the price. Our host was available if needed but we didn’t have need. Location good for food or the beach. We enjoyed our stay.
Not What We Expected
The outside of the property was a mess. The grill, table and lawn chairs were all extremely dirty. Not prepared for guest. Even the area was unkept. Let me go into the inside the living room and dinning room were fine but the kitchen well the microwave oven was dirty, I had to clean it also the refig. The air vents had dust and webs. The bedroom no lamps and the sheets just smelled bad. I had to go and purchase a set of sheets. I am glad we brought our own pillows. I did not use the comforter. The room was not prepared for guest, this did not seem like a rental but a place where someone lives and just rented for the time. The bathroom had mold around the window and tub. We were extremely disappointed because of our great experiences in the past. The past rentals were kept non personal, ready for vacationers and very clean. We will not stay there again and do not recommend this rental until the owner clears all personal items and cleans the place. I feel when you rent a property you make sure everything meets the standards, clean backyard, clean grill and furniture, clean linens (not old) also towels without stains. Please the please needs upkeep. I took pictures of all the things I have stated if needed. It was not what we expected!!!!
We stayed at Cynthia's place for 3 nights, May 21-24. We loved it. We were close to the beach, but had a nice, safe quiet neighborhood to relax in. We were able to bring our 2 small dogs, also part of our family, and they loved the yard. The home was clean and roomy, and was perfect for what we needed. A special thanks to Cindy for allowing us to stay at her bungalow. We love the east Pensacola area.
Cozy home for the price
For the price, this is a fine rental. The fenced backyard was a plus for our dog, and the neighborhood is quiet, with well maintained smaller homes for the most part. Cynthia is an excellent host who quickly responded to the few issues we had. For us, the furniture was not very comfortable which is why we did not give it 5 stars.
Thank you for staying with us. I'm not sure what furniture may not have met your needs but glad Mikey had a nice sized yard to hang out in. Hope it warms up for you soon back home.
