Guff Breeze is pretty good, lots of snobs but they are easy to ignore. As long as you don't steal Trump flags, No fighting at the gas pumps, don't smoosh the bread at walmart, return your shopping cart to the cart corral, no white costa sun glasses, no yeti or salt life stickers on your truck all will be good. Welcome to Breezerville.
If you do wear white costa's don't bend over in Publix (not there's anything wrong with that). And if you go to the beach on Memorial Day weekend, by all means have your wife escort you for safety.

I don't know, White Costas are just like bleach blondes with dark roots or blue/pink hair. Thank you for the visual early warning.

I’ve lived in Gulf Breeze for 15 years. Did some post- graduate work in LA and the weather there is far more mild than here. But...most everything else is a huge plus. As mentioned, come look around, but I live in what is known as “proper” (I hate the term and I didn’t coin it) and you really can’t find a better situation. Yeah, you have some snobs, but those who live here know the reputation is far more embellished than reality. Message me if you want to call with questions. I fish a 22’ Twin Vee with no problem and we kill plenty of fish.

Old gulf beach highway out towards perdido key is an awesome area. If I could pick any waterfront home in this area, that would be it.

You know Josh, I have thought about that often. If you could have any water front property around here, which one would you want. Sometimes I would want the south side of the ICW on the west side of Theo Barrs on Perdido. Nice sand beach front yard and lots of boats passing by to watch. Then other times a place up on the Blackwater River, nice and peaceful on fresh water. Then sometimes, a canal house in Gulf Breeze. One thing, I was keep in mind while dreaming, is the "H". Which is why I love the hill I am on, no flooding and short distance to the ramp. A View of Big Lagoon is awesome, but that "H" surge scares me. I also like the end of Innerarity with a view of Alabama.

PS: This was the first area I lived in. I rented a house two doors down from Rusty's Restuarant, across from Rod and Reel Marina, on Sinton Drive, with that park in front of the house, overlooking Grand Lagoon.

Ryan's Catch and Southwind Marina a block distance away. Snug Harbor Bar just a few blocks away, walking distance if need be, and then The Reef, in the curve on Perdido for Dancing to (I forgot the name of the band Shark Tooth?)

And on a good night all the way to Flora Bama Lounge and Package. Living in this rented house convinced me to never leave Pensacola.

PLUS the Blues practicing over your house every week! But if they say evacuate, do it. That's where Ivan killed so many.

Sounds like an awesome backstory Tom! I’m close enough- blue angel/Sorrento to know I love this side. Other than taking forever to get anywhere else in town. The Blues buzzing by everyday is a nice bonus as well. And the traffic isn’t terrible if you stay by the water and don’t try to go north on blue angel in the summer. I wish I had a tank some days.

Ever notice none of that was in the news? At least not that I remember.
Oh My Jeff, do not get me started, I also canvased Bay Street, and Navy Point. They always say "The Official Death Count" is 7, not that is what the number was, I can not remember now.

BUT: What the heck is the "Unofficial Death Count" then?

Back to the OP, I hope you find what you are lookin for. I am not sure of all your criteria but to me GB is way too busy and regulated. After 20 years in the panhandle, I chose out of any city limits and NO HOA's, but then I would prefer that anywhere. Good luck

HOA's are the devil! Too many people telling you what you "need" to do on your property. I love a nice neighborhood and respect all the rules but HOA Nazi's are the worst.
Tell me about it, I live with an HOA in Pace that hasn't been too bad, but it still sucks. Can't have a boat on a trailer, I get dirty looks from old ladies while working on my 4x4 in the driveway.....I'm currently looking to move even further north. You couldn't pay me to live in Gulf Breeze. I drive through there everyday going to work I wouldn't want to deal with that traffic all summer.
