Style, amenities, and spaciousness combine to make 'Beach Buddy' one of the most sought after beach homes in the area for a relaxing and memorable family vacation. Decorative details include original works by local and international artists, hardwood flooring, and impressive updated furnishings not normally found in the other rental homes.
Wrap-around decks on the second and third floors are great for entertaining and watching the sunsets. The home has an updated kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and granite counters.

              45 minutes from new Panama City Airport, (ECP) serviced by Southwest & Delta. Silver Sands Outlet Mall is reasonably close to you as well as the famous Red Bar in Grayton Beach and the charm of Seaside. For sheer convenience, Goat Feather's restaurant & seafood shop is right next door and close to stores and coffee shops. South Walton 17 mile hike & bike trail is right next to us with a spur going along one end of the property to the beach access.

              About the owner: Steve & Shirley Linahan live in Georgetown, Texas (Austin)...when we aren't at the beach or traveling.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              Because we love the white sand beaches of the Emerald Coast and love to share what we love with our family and new friends that we meet through renting our home!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This home faces the beach just a short stroll on a sidewalk. We always love to talk about the beach and the 30A area, give Shirley or I a call...512-923-5400.
