When you rent Tiki House Pensacola Beach, you may not want to go anywhere else. But if you do want to see the sites, you are in the right vacation rental home to catch the trolley, the ferry, and more!

Pensacola Beach is small - ish. With Tiki House positioned right in the middle, about 2 miles from the bridge and all the restaurants, you really can avoid the traffic most of the time. This is the ideal location for a vacation rental home. Close, but not too close, we have bikes for your use, there is the free Beach Trolley, and now we have ferry service to and from Pensacola!

Biking the Island - click here


Navigating the Beach - Public Transportation and More

We offer 13 or more bikes for guests use. But if you are a serious rider, you probably brought your own! There are a lot of trails for the serious rider in the area, but the bike friendly beach makes biking a good alternative to a car for all riders. Just make sure you follow all the traffic laws and know where the trails are. but if you are just heading to a restaurant or to look around, I would suggest staying to the back roads and you can get anywhere you want to go quite quickly! Don't forget to secure bikes or park them where you can keep an eye on them. We don't provide locks as people tend to forget the combination or lose the key! But you can bring your own!

And don't miss a trip to Fort Pickens on the Fort Pickens' Trail!

The best part of staying at a vacation rental home like Tiki House, is that we have it all, and we are close to everything! That is why it has always been an island favorite!
