Area Information
We are on the beautiful barrier island of Perdido Key completely surrounded by water. The sands are white and the water is part of the Emerald coastline. We are nearly adjacent to the National Seashore while two other state parks are within 5-8 miles.
If you like to fish or boat, you have either the gulf side or the bayside of Perdido Key to choose from. The island is accessed by two bridges. The west end bridge comes from Orange Beach/Gulf Shores, Alabama and crosses Perdido Bay while the east bridge comes from Pensacola, Florida. Pensacola is easily accessed and is about 10-15 miles. The Naval Air Station is just 15 minutes from us and is the home of the Flying Blue Angels. The Blue Angel air shows and the Naval Museum are free to the public and quite spectacular. Many restaurants, shopping, dining, golf, and recreational water sports are available either on the island or within 10 miles either east or west over the bridges.

Wish we were still there!!!!!!!

Great value; great price! Everything was as we expected. The property manager was easy to work with and prompt in answering any questions. The walk to the beach was very short. My family enjoyed beach combing and preferred this location above our other Florida beach vacation spots! We will be back!!

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the kind review. I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you as a guest and I look forward to hearing from you for your next vacation. Take care and let me know if you need anything!

This place is heaven on earth. My family and I enjoyed it now for the second year. Thank you so much for making this place available for us to rent.

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Debbie,
You are definitely a part of my condo family ! Have enjoyed sharing the condo at Christmas for you and your family two years in a row. Hope you will be back next year. Have a Happy and peaceful New year. Sincerely, Karen

The condo is lovely. My family of 7 slept comfortably and the owner is very nice and lovely to deal with. The pool located on the premises was heated and I observed other families swimming from my balcony. The beach is an easy walk from the condo. We were able to take strolls on the beach, and we even spotted a school of Dolphins. Temperatures hovered around the 50s, Thanks Karen. I really appreciate the time I got to spend with my family.

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much, JoAnna,
I'm so glad you were able to have a peaceful time with your family on the beach. The dolphins are always the highlights of my trips when I stay at the beach.. They love to swim those waters from the pass to the National Seashore area. Please feel welcome to come back anytime. Take care. Hope you had a safe trip home. As Ever, Karen

WOW, amazing, beautiful condo and area.

Where do I begin?? This place is amazing, a true home from home with everything you could ever need and more besides. We came over from the UK to visit my 2 eldest children who are now living at the Pensacola Naval base with their Mum and step dad, so we had 2 adults and 4 children staying here, and I think we could of quite comfortably bought the grand parents too. The condo is beautiful, and having a big cooker, washer, drier and dish washer was great for us, all of the beds are very very comfortable, we only cooked a few times but there is everything you could ask for in there. We decided to visit places like the Jellyfish, Ribshack, Ihop, which were all great, we also tried the Mexican on the corner but wasn't too keen. The mall in Pensacola was great, Hollister had a good sale on, and the food court was pretty good. The pool, hot tub and beach became our best friends and we spent several hours each day/night at both, Having several different types of fish and rays swimming round your feet is incredible, and seeing dolphins jumping around off shore, it just doesn't happen in the uk, even when 3 of us got a little jolt off a lesser electric ray didn't put us off the water. The other guests staying there were all so friendly, and we were surprised to be sat round the pool with a couple who originally lived 6 miles away from our home in the uk. We made great use of all the body boards, skim board, buckets and spades beach umbrella etc that were in the lock up, they were fab. We never hired a car on this visit as we wanted to get a feel for the area, but in future I think we will, Publix grocery store is just over the bridge and was a total of only 3 mile round trip, which I did twice as it was a nice walk with stunning views over the bridge. We had a lot of contact with Karen before we finally booked her condo for our family holiday/get together, and I can honestly say she was fab and amazingly helpful with everything we asked of her. And if she will allow us we are already planning a return visit.

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Hi Guys,
Really appreciated your great review, but am especially happy that you had such a great holiday with your kids and family. Can't wait to have you all coming back someday. I have 2 other UK couples that routinely visit my condo and you are all like family to me, always welcome at my favorite place. Take care and hope you had a safe trip home with many fond memories of Perdido Key, As Ever, Karen

Nice quiet vacation lots of rain

During our breaks from baseball we enjoyed boating in the bay and watching the dolphins. My son Travis invited a friend over to ride on the tube in the bay and they had the best time ever. I was watching from the porch and could hear them laughing from the water. Nothing is better than a child’s laughter. We will be seeing you again .

Truly a home away from home! (even better!)

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay in Perdido Key. Our family was coming to visit our son who is stationed in Pensacola. It was ideal in that it was just a quick 15 min. drive back to base for him. The condo had everything you could want and need to be comfortable. Private and not all the commercial stuff around which is a plus. 2 grocery stories within a few miles. Just a short walk to the beach (a small crossing streets). Very nice pool. The owners were so great with communication and friendly beyond words. I have already recommended this condo to my family who may be coming in Aug. Thank you so much for the use of your condo and the wonderful memories that we made!!

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much for your feedback. I am so glad you had a great vacation and reunion with your son. As I told you before, I have a special place in my heart for the military and law enforcement. They are truly the unsung heroes of life. Looking forward to you being my return guests some day and will welcome any of your family and friends. Take care. Peace and good health be with you all, As Ever, Karen

It was just what we needed!

My family really needed time to just chill and rest. We got just what we needed. The condo was nice, quite and the beach and pool were great. We saw dolphins, rays, and herons! Great time was had by all!

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the great review. Hope to see you again in the future. Each season at the beach brings different shells and different marine life to enjoy. An ever changing landscape! As Ever, Karen

Great Ppace to wind down

We had a fabulous time. Everything we needed was in the condo ready to go. We spent a lot of time on the balcony with coffee and something to accompany. The Publix grocery store was within 2 miles and we were able to pick up things we needed to relax the mornings away. Lots of great places to eat nearby. We walked the white sand beaches and marveled at God's perfect creations. The Navy air Museum was a great place to visit. All in all we had a great week. K Miller

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

I'm so glad you had a great vacation and enjoyed looking at the gulf from the balcony as much as I do. Sharing Perdido Key with my guests is one of my pleasures of life. Thanks for sharing your positive experience with others. I hope you all will return for another visit in the future. As Ever, Karen

Great Place!

The condo was perfect! Clean, quiet, convenient and comfortable! We loved the location, the pool, the kitchen and balcony--it was all great! My husband is a chef, so we abused Joe Petti's fresh seafood and ate fantastic food in the comforts of our own condo! The kitchen was well equipped to do so. Bedrooms and baths were comfortable and the bunks were great for our twins. Walk to beach is minimal and pool was perfect for late afternoon soaks. Don't hesitate a minute to book this place--you won't regret it!

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Missy for the great review.
I really appreciated your business and am so glad your family had a great time. I hope you will consider our condo your home away from home. Would love to see you all another time making great vacation memories. Since your husband is a chef, we're thinking we should be down at the beach at the same time you are!!
Thanks again, As ever, Karen

Love, love, love it!

My daughter and I stayed here while in the area for college visits. The owner is wonderful to work with, the condo was perfect and the beach was spectacular. My family normally vacations in Destin every year, but I have found my new favorite place, can't wait to bring the whole family back. The condo is very nice, spacious, perfectly located and is in a quiet area with everything you need for a great family vacation. In the fall the beach is desserted and you can watch the stingrays swim up close to the shore in the evenings, lots of shells to collect...just heavenly

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Chastity, for loving Perdido Key as much as I do!! Fall is such a great time of year to visit the beach both for shelling and ocean wildlife. I look forward to having ALL of your family back to the Grand Caribbean for another visit and exploration of the area. Take care, Karen

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this location and it was great! Very clean, easy access to the beach via the board walk and was a great time of the year as there were not many people on the beach!! Karen was a joy to work with and stopped by, as she happened to be in town, to meet us and answer any questions that we had! The beach chairs, towels and umbrella being right there was a huge plus!! The "Fisherman's Corner" is a yummy place to eat, not with a view but well worth it!! We spotted sting ray and the shelling was good!! I would return here and will surely suggest it to my friends and family!!

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the great review. So glad to be able to meet both of you and direct you to our favorite local restaurant!! You're right October is one of the best months for peacefulness, shells, and sealife. Hope to see you again. Your family and friends are always welcome. Sincerely, Karen

bit of heaven

Love the close proximity to beach and town. A bit of a walk but not to far. Only wish had better ocean view. Lovely place to stay.

Great vacation

The condo was very spacious and well kept. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen was updated and well stocked, and there were plenty of towels and bedding to use. It was just a few steps to the beach, and the pool and hot tub on the premises were great also. we will certainly rent there again.

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review for me. I'm glad you liked Perdido Key as much as my family and I. You'll always be welcome in my second home. Hope to see you again. Sincerely, Karen

Loved Little Bit of Heaven!

I would recommend this condo and area to any one in family or friends. The condo is well keep and maintained, in a nice area. Our stay was very fun with everything we needed close by. I will be visiting the condo and area again when we go back to Florida for our ocean visit.

Jim Wells

Love the location

After vacationing in Destin many times we are glad we made the switch to Perdido Key. The condo was everything that was advertised and then some. The kitchen has everything you need in it, just bring your food. The beds are nice and comfortable. The owner was very easy to deal with and goes out of the way to make sure that you have a great time. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the review. I appreciate your kind words. You'll always be welcome in one of my condos. We've loved Perdido Key for 12 years now. Try my other condo next time. It has all the amenities and is beach front with lap pool, jacuzzi in master suite, tennis courts, beach front exercise room as well as regular pool and hot tub. Thanks again, Karen

Great Experience

We were very pleased with our condo. It was clean and had plenty of room for our family of 5. The owner was friendly and extremely easy to work with. I was concerned that the walk to the beach would be too far, but it wasn’t bad at all. We would love to come back and will be telling our friends and family about A Little Bit of Heaven!

Karen & Roger Schilling

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much for your great review. I'm glad your family enjoyed your break . Appreciate any referrals you give me and look forward to having you as part of my condo family. Thanks, Karen

The Perfect Get-away !!

Afew months ago our married daughter and husband, our son and his fiance, and their mother and I enjoyed our first family beach get-a-way. We wanted to go to Pensacola Fl, because we had not seen my wife's senior parents who live there in over a year. With so many places to choose and a modest budget to pull from we looked high and low . After alot of searching we chose " Litle Bit of Heaven " Condo. It's everything that the advertizement said and more. The condo was very clean, with cool to walk on tile floors after a hot day on warm to hot sand. Comfy inside and outdoor seating on the large balcony. The beds in the bedrroms where very comfy. The kitchen was our meeting place the large counters were great. The appliances looked and worked like new. From the "provided" beach towels stored inside to the beach cart outisde in the closet next to the front door. Karen has thought of everything you would need. No need to buy charcol and lighter fluid for the down stairs grills, or beach toys for the kids, it's all there in the closet. Truly all you need is some food, drinks, sunblock, surf fishing gear if you fish ( we caugth whitting right infront of the condos) about 10 feet into the water with fresh frozen shell on eating shrimp bougth at Walmart). The walk to the beach was short and not very hard. The Pool was an oasis to get too. The fresh outdoor shower head and hose gave us a quick transition from salt water to pool in seconds. (Soooo good). Publix and some restaurants were in walking distance. The gas this week near the condo was as low as 3.21 a gal., A Walmart is just a few miles away. When first planning with two other couples we had some last minute changes and Karen was very felxible. Even though we never saw Karen or her on site manager, we knew by dealing with her on the phone or email, that we were not left alone, We knew their professional, quick assistance and warm freindly service could be counted on, and that meant alot. We all agreed we would come back annually to this condo unit and some said they would come more frequent to be alone or with others, and this time stay longer. Thank you Karen for wonderful memories and a place we can call "Our Beach Condo". If you want a place to relax, with no crowds, this place in May is great. We were here the 25th thru the 28th. The average temp. was in the low 90s with comfy nights, gental breezes blew all the time. Again Karen thanks for the memories and sharing your Condo. Joe & Becky Savannah

little bit of heaven review

this condo was perfect for us. we had plenty of room for everyone and it was very easy to find and had great access to the beach. i would stay here again but i would check first and see if there would be anyone leasing the property above us because they were extremely loud.

From sitting on condo deck watching dolphins , walking along vast white sand beaches People we met from all over were very friendly and great to extend helpful hints on eating places , where to visit and so on Blue Angels air show at base and museum were awesome Looking forward to returning for future stays

great family getaway

We recently spent time at this condo. Having the pool right outside the patio was awesome. It was an incredibly short walk to the beach and well worth the cost savings. The inside was well equipped and more than enough for our group of 4 adults and 2 kids. Thanks so much.
