Our experience was amazing! The location of this property is perfect. The beach access is easy and the beach is incredible. The house kitchen and lounging areas are really nice. Lots of room outside and inside. I do feel that the house could have been cleaner upon arrival. Some of the bed sheets seemed to have sand or dirt on them. A couple of the bathrooms needed cleaned a little more, but other than that, very nice. The pool temperature and deck area were good. Pool could be updated a little with a new liner.

Awesome house that fits the needs of our growing extended family. The only addition that would make the house perfect would be to add comfortable seating to the front porch. It would be much more enjoyable to have comfy seating like rocking chairs etc to enjoy the gulf breeze & beautiful view of the gulf. The current seating is lacking & uncomfortable.

Manager's Response

We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at 1003 Ariola. It's such a beautiful home and a guest favorite! We appreciate your feedback about the front porch seating. We will certainly discuss this with the owner of the home. We hope to see you again very soon!

Members of my organization put together a beach week offsite meeting at 1003 Ariola through Paradise Beach Homes.

The 11 bedroom house was clean and spacious - it fully accommodated our needs and everyone left the meeting looking forward to our next offsite (which will likely be a return visit).

The staff at PBH went out of their way to ensure our unique needs were met, as we weren't the typical vacationers. However, I would highly recommend their company for those considering a beach trip to Pensacola.

Manager's Response

1003 Ariola is the perfect place for an offsite meeting and what a great way to spend the day with co-workers! We're so glad the space fit your needs and we hope you chose Paradise Beach Homes again for any future meetings your company may have or for any family get-aways!

We had a wonderful family reunion in this house. It was perfect. We filled every bedroom and enjoyed having two living room spaces. It had a huge kitchen with lots of pans and dishes. (It needs a new can opener and a few more food storage containers for left overs.) It was clean and tidy. Although it could have been swept out a little better in the front bedroom. The rental company is organized and prompt on their response. I would definitely rent this house again !!

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for posting your review. We will purchase a new can opener and storage food containers for the home. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to your return!

Everything was good at home as described in the pictures and details. Beach is next to the house and driveway is huge to park any number of cars. I am giving one star less as the pool heat system was broken when we rented and our kids were sad to not use a nice pool.They should have check the system periodically and make sure its working at least during the winter months. Management agreed to fix it next day but no one came for fixing.

This was our second gathering of family at Starfish House. The home is clean, well laid out for being together or having a bit of privacy. Large pool with plenty of deck area for lounging. Just a walk across the street, down the boardwalk to the gulf, or a quick walk to the sound side for a more wave-free setting with small children.

We look forward to coming back again.

All of the bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious. I would recommend this house to any family or group.

The Starfish house was absolutely perfect. We had our wedding reception here and most of our bridal party stayed with us in the house. We loved everything about our stay, the house was clean and there were tons of bedroom space for all of us to stay and we weren't on top of each other. The beach access was right across the street, which is where we had our ceremony, very convenient! Jodi was so helpful and accommodating with wedding preparations. Our day was just magical. The decking around the pool was perfect amount of space for us to set up tables for the reception and the tiki bar was perfect setup for our bartender. I have no complaints about our stay! We have already started discussing renting this again in the future. Awesome house!

Our group included 10 adults, and 16 high school cheerleaders. We were in Pensacola for a cheerleading competition at the Pensacola Bay Center. The house is beautiful and had plenty of room for everyone. It is decorated perfectly for the beach. My only suggestion is that there needs to be a small lamp in two of the cubby rooms (they only had an overhead light). Would highly recommend for any large group or several families!

This house was absolutely perfect! My wife and I got married this past weekend and had somewhere for all of our friends to stay. We even had our reception underneath the house. They provided so many things you would need in a house, the kitchen was stocked with dishes, and there were more than enough towels for each guest. We will definitely be coming back to stay for anniversaries, vacations, and just to get away! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the starfish house with paradise beach homes.

We visited with our large extended family - Great Grandparent to Great Grand children. 27 of us in total. Great house, very well laid out, beautiful pool and easy access to the Gulf Beach or the Sound side of the island if you wanted very calm waters. Also wrote a review on with more details - we have been coming to the Pensacola Beach area for over 25 years. We have stayed in condos, townhomes as our family grew up and now our children have their own. This house was be best and we hope to be back soon.

And Paradise Beach Homes office was up for the task on Saturday - well staffed and made for a very smooth/quick check-in we have ever had.

This was a great house and in great condition! We would definitely rent this house again. It is a very short walk to the beach, not on the beach and we were about a mile or so from restaurants and bars but other than that, it was perfect. It had tons of closets and no hangars so bring your own hangars. :)

Beautiful, well planned house. Amazing space for the number of people it can host. Bedrooms were very generous in size, bathrooms tastefully designed, and loads of storage space for your luggage and extras while you stay. I think my favorite part is the front porch that overlooks the beach. Amazing house! I will be back!

Awesome location on the beach. Can take photos of the ocean from the front deck- sunrises & sunsets unreal. The home is very spacious & comfortable for a large group. The back pool & bar were even useful for our large group after leaving the beach late in the afternoon. We would book this house again without any hesitation....absolutely loved it!

We rented this home for our annual family reunion of 1st cousins. We have 17 ladies from 51-81 years of age. The stairs were easy for the elderly to climb, we had a table large enough that we could all sit together and share a meal, everyone had a bed to sleep in, plenty of room & bathrooms. The kitchen was very welled stocked and it was nice to have 2 refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers & industrial ice maker. The house has the best of both worlds with a great beach/water views, very short walk to the beach/water and a very nice private pool. It is a very nice home, comfortable, well decorated, & the staff at Paradise Beach Homes was very helpful, kind & pleasant. We loved our beach goodie bag! We loved it so much that we are booking the home again next year for our annual "Beach Hen Party."

This is an awesome house. Wehad wedding and reception here last weekend. The beach access is right across the street from the house. About 30 of my family members stayed in the house and it felt like we could've fit many more in it. Each room is beautifully decorated and spacious. The only thing I wish would have been better was the backyard-wayyy to dark at night. It has no lights around the pull or tiki bar area. If the owners had lights around pool area, the house would be perfect.

We loved the house! The rooms are huge and most have private bathrooms which is great when you have a large group. Trash pickup twice a week or additional trash cans would be a great help though.
