We absolutely love the Boardwalk community. It is low density with just 84 condos and one of them is owned and used by the HOA. The location is so convenient to local attractions and restaurants.The condo owns 600 feet of white sandy beaches and is located directly across from the boardwalk to the Gulf Of Mexico on Pensacola Beach. There is a trolley pick up/drop off located just a short distance from the complex. Boardwalk is very close to the hub of Pensacola Beach but just far enough away that we find it quiet and relaxing. Actually it is located closer to the Island's End with two lane roads in front so traffic is less congested and walking or jogging on the sidewalks along Ft. Pickens Road is relaxing. We feel the pace here is a little slower and life is quieter.
The biggest draw about the Boardwalk Complex was the 600 feet of sandy white beach located on Pensacola Bay. The condo is just steps away from this area. I have two young grandchildren and we enjoy the beauty and calm of the Bay where we can relax knowing with adult supervision the children can enjoy the water in safety; especially when the red flags are flying for the Gulf Waters. Yet, with the the boardwalk to the Gulf just across the street we easily make the walk to pick up shells, ghost crab at night, enjoy the waves and all the Gulf Side has to offer. If the children want a different water experience they can enjoy the pool which is located a two minute walk from the condo and can be viewed from the living area and the second bedroom.
This complex is unique in the amount of outdoor living spaces it has. Underneath the unit is enough space to accommodate two cars. No parking passes needed!!! Overflow parking is available in designated areas. There is space for a picnic table, a grill, and a lounging area all situated underneath the condo where it is shaded and the Gulf Breeze blows to keep you cool. The unit also has its own private outdoor shower. Wonderful to wash off the sand before entering the condo.
In addition to the lower outside area, there are two large balconies that are accessible from outside stairs or the from the living areas of the condo. On the first balcony, we include a table and chairs for dining or relaxing. Imagine watching the white sands of the Bay and emerald green water while enjoying your dinner or a drink.
We also like having our own washer and dryer to keep up with the loads of vacation laundry. You never have to take lots of dirty laundry home. We also like that there are two full and one half baths. Never waiting to get into a bathroom. As owners we are aware that hot water can be a premium when it is time for showers. We installed a new 40 gallon hot water heater when we purchased the condo.

Our family has always loved saltwater and all that goes with beach side living. When our children were young, we purchased beach property in NC near our home and enjoyed beach life with family and friends. A move to Florida in 1994 made owning the NC beach property unrealistic. Reluctantly, we sold our NC beach property and moved to a home on Pensacola Bay. For several years we loved living where we could look out on the bay from every room in our home, but we eventually moved inland to a community in Pace, Florida. We still felt drawn to the salt water that even enjoying our boat could not satisfy. So in 2009 we purchased a dream condo in Gulf Shores, Alabama. We began enjoying the Salt Life with a condo on the Gulf of Mexico along with becoming VACATION RENTAL owners. Recently we began to feel a pull to find property closer to our home in the Pensacola area. After looking for over a year, we found our new dream vacation home in the Board Walk community of Pensacola Beach. The perfect place to continue to make Salt Life memories. The perfect place for you to make family memories too!
My husband and I enjoy everything about beach life. We truly love living where others vacation. We hope our dream beach home becomes the vacation spot you dream about. Our family lives locally and includes our daughter, her husband, and two children, our son and his wife. They all enjoy the beach life too and we are excited about Island's End and adding to the beach memories we can make right on Pensacola Beach.
This condo was a great place to stay and perfect for our weekend in Pensacola Beach. Everything in the unit was very nice and of great quality. It’s very spacious and is located steps from the bay and a short walk to the gulf. The walkway from the bay beach out to the bay is a wonderful place to enjoy sunrises and sunsets. The kitchen was very well equipped. My family was very pleased with the big screen TV and comfortable living room. We especially liked the outdoor staircases and balcony space. We would definitely stay here again.

This location was perfect. We didn't have to fight the traffic and we were close enough to all the sites and restaurants. This condo had everything we needed to have a great weekend away. It was clean, the owners were so very personable, and it was exactly what were looking for. We will definitely be back

The condo is in a great location. Close to the action but far enough away to have some quiet too!. The owner was swift to handle any questions/concerns we might have had. Also the owner was very generous with the amenities she left to get us started.

We had an amazing vacation staying at this location! The condo has everything you will need and is updated beautifully. Sheri and Joe are wonderful hosts and will respond quickly to any questions you have. The condo is just steps from the sound side beach which is calm and serene. We lounged, snorkled, played volleyball and kayaked here and fished off of the pier. In 5 minutes walk, you can be on the gulf side with higher waves and bluer water. You're very close to Fort Pickens which we purchased a week long pass and utilized the beaches there for fishing, birding and swimming and touring the fort, learning the history of Pensacola. We found public tennis courts and the Pensacola boardwalk is just a few minutes drive. We parasailed, took a 3 hour jetski dolphin adventure, went deep sea fishing, drove to Navarre, tried out several of the beaches along the way to Navarre and found a good snorkeling reef. We tried out Shaggy's, Founders and Peg Leg Pete's as dinner spots. Shaggy's was the favorite of the 3. There's a Tom Thumb convenience store a minute's drive for frozen bait, ice, beverages, etc. or you can drive about 10 minutes to a Publix or Walmart. We also went to the National Aviation Museum which is free and very interesting. As we drove away after 8 days, the kids said, "there goes paradise."

Absolutely wonderful place for a family of four to stay and enjoy Pensacola Beach. Located on the Bay side, but a very short walk across the street to the beach. Perfect for paddle boarding and kayaking. Townhouse is clean!! Well-stocked kitchen!! Plenty of towels / linens!! Loved the balconies on both floors and especially loved relaxing on the rocking chairs beneath the carport. Would recommend for sure and will hopefully be back next year!! Thank you Sheri!!!
