Las Brisas Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Las Brisas is Spanish for “the breezes.” This sprawling neighborhood sits just over a mile east of Perdido Bay. It is possible that cool breezes from the bay reach this quiet community. Acres of hardwood trees frame the eastern edge of the development. The forest reaches all the way to Highway 90 and skirts the edge of the Osceola Municipal Golf Course, a local icon since 1926. The onsite Chiefs at Osceola Restaurant has glass walls, which allow diners to watch the action on the greens while enjoying a meal.
Las Brisas runs from Marlane Drive in the north to Oakcliff Road on the southeast. The neighborhood resembles a lopsided triangle, and the streets are not laid out in a typical grid pattern. Las Brisas Drive is the main road, but from there the neighborhood becomes a maze of cul-de-sacs and crooked streets. It may seem confusing at first, but the street pattern does cut down on through traffic, giving residents a peaceful place to live.
Developed in the early 1970s, Las Brisas is made up of individually designed homes set on quartre-acre lots. Most are built in a single-story ranch style. Lots are irregularly shaped, particularly at the end of the cul-de-sacs. Backyard swimming pools are plentiful. Streets lined with mature shade trees offer a pleasant place to walk.
The closest shops and services are north along Marlane Drive and Carny Road. Bellview Shopping Center is about a mile north along the Mobile Highway. The nearest schools are also to the north, including Bellview Elementary School and Bellview Middle School. Escambia High School sits to the south.
