Paradise Beach Homes is by far the most courteous realty company we've every worked with. Thank you for going above and beyond to make our reunion memorable!

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.

Our beach vacation at 103 Ariola was all we were dreaming of. We have been coming for 4 years and we love our Ariola Street rentals. The weather was perfect to enjoy our beach time and the heated pool is so enjoyable when the gulf water is cold. Derek worked very hard and had our house welcoming for us. The walk around the corner to Easter mass is always wonderful. Our family filled a whole pew! We rated our vacation a 5 Star as it was awesome. The only negative comments would be floors were a little sticky in some places even after Dereck mopped them quite a few times. He cam back and did another pass with the mop and they were better. Kids in the house before us did a number on it. They also left a crack in a chair on the porch. When my niece sat in it the chair broke. We noticed the neighborhood is starting to get a bit crazy with all the high school kids renting the houses. There was a very large group in I think 1004 or 6, across left from us. They got loud and un-orderly. Walked the streets at night. We had a few really drunk boys come to our door attempting to come in thinking they were staying in our house. We picked up trash on the beach that was left after a large group of kids trashed the beach with their drinks and beers cans. We love the beach and don't want to lose the ability to have a beautiful place to take our kids to. But overall our Easter Family Vacation was absolutely wonderful. We love Derek and all the really nice and helpful ladies at the Paradise office. We hope to keep coming to see you for years to come. Our only real disappointment at the end of this trip was finding out that our house was already rented for next Easter! It is the perfect house for our family and we love it.
Thank you all!!!

The house was very nice. We had small children that enjoyed the pool. Even though it was late November the weather was great. Just a short walk to the beach was a plus, also.the only problems we had were the coffee pot was broken and the oven is too small for doing much cooking. We had a great time.

The house had awesome space for gathering the entire group in one setting and a dinning table that accommodated all 14 of us. The pool was wonderful and it was cleaned everyday. 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.

The floors are very dirty, dishes had to be rewashed before using, pool had lots of sand it, but was cleaned the next day, garbage cans stayed full until we complained and the management company picked garbage up. TV set in main room did not work until it was repaired, floors were so sandy we had to wear shoes in the house. We liked the location, the owner and the ice machine. Showers are dirty.

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!

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 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."

Very nice new house and our family had a fun week. Lots of bedrooms and everyone had plenty of space. Pool vas very nice and I liked the way someone came to check it every morning. Minor negatives: small chests in bedrooms where a larger dresser would be better. No coat hangers in closets so clothes storage was a problem. One closet did not have a clothing rod. Not enough chairs in the living room. House for large number of people but only three dark leather sofas to sit on. No bookcases or tables or ottomans. Very sparse furnishings for the price. Had a super ice machine and second fridge was great. Need a bar area

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.
