Question Pensacola, Fl. Home base?

We presently live in Castle Rock, Co. Looking to move to Pensacola, Fl. area, anyone live there? Would love to get at home with ability to place our 21 Sovereign for the Winter months. Any Ideas on areas. My brother and nephew live in Mobile and we would like to be an hour or so from them. I am 66 and wife will retire next year so looking to buy now or within next year.
Thanks for looking
Tom & Anney Jansen

Mystic Springs Cove Airstream Park in McDavid Fl. has storage available at $1.00 per day in the storage area or $2.00 on a site. http://pensacolaflorida.wbcci.net They also need a host for April and May. Sal

I spent 4 years in the USCG Aviation, Corpus Christi, Tx. 1968-1972

Mystic springs might be of use if I cannot find a house with room. Which is getting harder to find.

Thanks to both of you.

I live in Navarre, which is just east of Pensacola. Although I live in a neighborhood with a homeowners association (Holley By The Sea) many of us here have permits to park our RV on our property. What kind of a home are you looking for and how close do you want to be to Pensacola? There are many areas outside of the "city" that you would be able to park your RV on your property (Midway, Cantonement, Holt and Navarre since not all neighborhoods have HOA restrictions.)

I am a native of the area and have lived in the area for all of my life. There are many areas in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties that might interest you.

A good way to approach this problem is to connect with a real estate agent in the area and outline your requirements to the agent, then let the agent come up with a short list for you to consider.

I'm following bc we own a home in Navarre (currently renting it out but plan on retiring there one day). I was wondering as well if there are any covered RV parking storage areas for winter months near there...perhaps no farther than Milton?

Beth, We are looking for a Ranch 2br , 2bth, 2 car. around 1600 to 2200 Sq. Hope around $150,000 . We have seen some in Pensacola area for around this +-. Room for an Airstream definitely a plus as I am a tinkerer and need to polish the entire unit.
Thanks for your input
Tom

Close to Pensacola

We live in an Escapee Rv park in Summerdale Alabama which is about 30 miles from Pensacola it has a residential area with houses and most have 2 or 3 full hook ups in their yards. We have a campground up front and have storage for RVs members pay $25 per month. There are several houses for sale in the park in your price range
