Lownde Retreat is like no other place in Pensacola. Secluded, sitting on 3 wooded acres providing privacy, yet close to anywhere you would want to be....including a 3 minute walk to a little-known public beach on Bayou Grande. The property is situated in the middle of amazing beaches in both directions on the Gulf of Mexico just 20 minutes away. Pensacola Beach is to the east while Johnson's Beach is to the west. Downtown is less than 10 minutes away. NAS Pensacola is 3 minutes away. The space 2Bedroom/1Bath Apartment After one stay you’ll know why the property is named Lownde Retreat.

A comfortable home away from home. Even though it is minutes from most places you would want to be, you can still enjoy the convenience, peace and quiet and privacy only Lownde Retreat can offer. The apartment is part of a spotless, well maintained and fully equipped/stocked 4 unit apartment complex located on a private, park-like setting of 3 wooded acres. The property is surrounded by trees with a large stream running thru the wooded portion of the property. Be out and about in the early evening and you may see Chester, the shy but ever present resident bob-cat. Walk in the woods and you'll see box and gopher turtles. In the evening, during certain times of the year you will hear owls. There is nothing else like Lownde Retreat in the city. Are you a water lover?? Have kayaks, paddle boards or a boat??? The apartment is 3 blocks from a small, little known public beach on Bayou Grande in the confines of Beach Haven, a tiny residential community 10 minutes from downtown. Relax and take in the sun or get out on the water. Easy launch for kayaks/paddle board just a one minute drive from your front door. A public, free boat launch is a quick 2 minute drive. While Lownde Retreat seems like it is worlds away, in actuality the property is only 5 minutes from the front gate of NAS Pensacola, 10 minutes from all the events and night time activities of downtown, 20 minutes to either Pensacola Beach or in the opposite direction, Johnson’s Beach on Perdido Key, perennially voted one of the nation’s finest beaches and a gem in the federal park system. While peaceful, secluded and private, the property is extremely convenient being located within several minutes of day to day destinations such as Walmart, multiple fast food outlets and other assorted shopping and dining. While many people ask due to its size of 3 acres and private setting, we are sorry but Lownde Retreat is not a place for parties, functions or events as the primary reason most people choose to live and visit here is the.peace and quiet. For those of you who are relocating to the area, the property provides ample parking for a trailer if you brought some belongings along. Space for boat storage is available for those on vacation and a free public boat ramp is 3 minutes away. To get the most from your stay and to make it as convenient as possible, upon arrival you’ll find a hot sheet of what locals consider must-do activities, destinations and restaurants (way better than YELP!). For example, since everything you need.to prepare a meal is provided,,are you a great cook and want to prepare an amazing seafood dinner in your fully stocked kitchen? You’ll have directions to Joe Patti’s, an incredible, never to be forgotten 75 year old seafood market located less than 10 minutes away. You'll be so impressed you'll do what a lot of people do and that is have your favorite seafood items shipped to your home. Also, each unit is equipped with a full size washer and dryer as well as all the other amenities needed to make Lownde Retreat a turnkey destination you’ll want to return to again and again. Guest access There is ample parking on the property. If you have a small boat or trailer there is room to accommodate that as well. Just please be considerate of the parking needs of others. Other things to note While this is an apartment building, it does sit in a residential neighborhood. The property sits on 3 heavily wooded acres. As such, there is no smoking on the property, either inside or outside of the apartment. Because of the size of the property and how secluded the property is we get requests from people wanting to know about parties, events and various functions. Because the property sits in a residential area, out of respect for our neighbors we do not accept request for such functions. It is not a place people should book if they are wanting a party type atmosphere. Most people reserve this location because they want the peace and quiet. More
