Couldn't have been any better.
Couldn't have been any better.
This home was amazing! The photos do not do it justice.My family was taking the first family vacation together in more than 20 years and we were absolutely thrilled. The view from the deck was great.We saw dolphins playing every morning while enjoying our coffee.It was great to come out of the house,walk off the deck,and onto the beach,to the surf in less than 2 minutes.The house was very kid friendly, as my two 2 year old granddaughters and 4 year old grandson will attest to.Beautifully decorated and open with plenty of sitting room and comfortable beds,we felt at home the first day.Although away from the strip, it only took ten minutes to gulf world and shops via back beach road. Winn-Dixie and Publix just down the road, five minutes away.We would definitely enjoy coming back to stay.Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home, it was great. Thank you very much, The Soworowski family

Manager response: On behalf of the owners and myself, the property manager, thank you for taking the time to review this great beach front home. This is exactly the reward for all of our efforts of time and money spent to exceed the expectations of our guests. We love hearing that wonderful family memories were made and treasured. Make your plans to come back soon.
It was a good stay with convenient beach access etc. The disappointing thing is.. there is no Internet access for this property. Cell phone signal is too weak for any decent connectivity. Everything else is good.

Manager response: Thank you so much for your comments. Cell phone connection has been an ongoing issue here at the beach, however our county commissioners are currently considering a proposed cell tower that would be a big game changer for us. In the mean time we do have WiFi available at the property.

Oh my! The house is beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The real decoration of course is the location right on the beach! Not only was the set up of the house perfect for our family, but we fell in love with the quiet beach area. We will definitely be back!!!

Manager response: On behalf of the owner, we are thrilled to hear that our guests' expectations were not only met but exceeded. It is so hard to capture in the photos the breathtaking location of this great Gulf-Front beach house. Thank you taking the time to post such an encouraging review. Come on back to the beach soon!
I've been to PCB a few times now and this was my first time staying at a beach vacation home. This is a beautiful property right on the beach. The deck and sun-room opens up to spectacular views of the emerald water. You can even see the sea from the kitchen while cooking. The 2 master bedrooms have sliding doors to the sun-room with unobstructed views of the beach. We were a party of 3 families with 3 kids under 3yrs of age. There is a shower and a hose on the deck and the kids enjoyed it so much that they did not want to get back inside the house. We spent our mornings and evenings on the deck. There is a dining table with the umbrella, it seated all of us and the umbrella was very helpful for the kids. It was perfect for breakfast and dinner. We all spent most of the afternoons in the sun-room enjoying the views and sounds of the beach, without having sun burns. The house, furniture and beds were very clean. The only reason I rated it 4stars is because, the house lacked some basic stuff like paper rolls etc...which people will take it for granted that these will be provided. This house has wifi but it did not help us much, we had to face problems with it as my husband had to work for a few hours. However, all these things did not matter to us much, as we were busy gazing at the views and were having a wonderful experience. This was our most relaxing beach vacation ever. Thank you for sharing your property with us. We cant wait to come back.

The perfect beach vacation!!!!!!!
The perfect beach vacation!!!!!!!
Just returned from the perfect beach vacation at Welcome to Paradise. The location does not get any better. The home is located on the quiet end of Panama Beach. You can see the beach and gulf from almost every room! You walk out the door to a patio and grassy area, which was great for the kids to play on their own. A few steps down to the beautiful sandy beach and gulf. Our kids played for hours in the sand, looked endlessly for sea shells and swam all week. We relaxed on the deck and beach, listening to the waves and watching incredible sunsets. The outside shower was awesome for rinsing off sand and salt. The layout was perfect for our group - 2 adults and 5 children. The sun-room was huge and the beds so comfortable (even the sofabeds). Kitchen had everything you need and the washer and dryer came in very handy. We will definitely be back and have recommended this home to our friends and family. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Manager response: Thank you for your gracious and kind review. This is exactly our goal; to exceed the expectations of our guests, to provide a relaxing, beautiful setting at the beach. I am so glad the 14.5 hour drive from the north with five children, no less, was well worth the effort. Please come on back to the beach soon. The fall is unbelievable. The weather is fantastic and the gulf is still very warm.
This place is awesome. The first feeling that you get when you enter the house and see a beautiful beachfront can never be forgotten. It was hard to get cellphone service nor wireless internet, but not a lot of people were bothered about this because we were busy enjoying the beach and the wonderful house. The house is very clean. It has everything that we need. I'm giving "good" because I am a techie and I seldom feel awkward without wireless internet or phone services. Overall, I recommend this property!

Manager response: Thank you for your kind review. There is a "team" behind the scenes to make sure all of our guests for each property have their "dream" experience at this beautiful beach. So glad you achieved your goal of a memorable experience on the emerald coast. ps I understand your frustration. I was at verizon with this very concern and they said the towers simply have too many users with spring break.
A great vacation in a beautiful spot.
A great vacation in a beautiful spot.
There are beautiful places in the world that merit spending money on vacation. This is one of them. Panama Beach, with it's white sand beaches stretching for miles, the beautiful and ever-changing blues of the Gulf, the sun, the breezes, the palms -- those are the reasons to be here. This house is great -- it maximizes exposure to the beach with wall-to-wall windows overlooking the Gulf. The water is just steps down from the back deck, through a path that cuts through the dunes, and across about 30 yards of beach.This truly is "gulf-front." Moreover, there are two master bedrooms, both with screened french doors that overlook the beach and allow in the hypnotic sound of the waves. Everything is updated, from the kitchen to the flat-screen TVs to the washer-dryer in the handy laundry room. It's truly carefree. Panama Beach is a spring-break hotspot, but this house is on the quiet western part of the beach. There are enough other people here to be a small community, but not the raucous, bumper-to-bumper, cheek-to-jowl action that takes place a few miles east. If you want to be in the middle of spring break chaos, this isn't the spot. If you want a beautiful setting without the frantic atmosphere of thousands of people, this works. There are grocery stores, a coffee shop, cafes and restaurants, all conveniently within a mile or two of the house. Both my wife and I like to jog, and there is a wide bike lane on the main road in front of the house that makes running there safe, and lots of neighborhood roads with little or no traffic just off the main thoroughfare. On our visit, we had our old golden retriever along, and were able to find quiet times to get her to the water so she could retrieve tennis balls in the surf. Needless to say, she was in heaven. We always cleaned up after her, which we would strongly encourage other folks with pets to do. It's considerate of others, and will hopefully make people accepting of pets on vacations. Our property manager, whose name is Karen Sandel, was knowledgeable, friendly, informative and accessible, a truly helpful and wonderful woman. The only problem is that the house doesn't have wi-fi, although we were eventually allowed to tap in to the service from a nearby location. We had two college kids on spring break along with us, and they needed internet access for study purposes. It just seems a given to have wi-fi these days. Other than that, this place is aobut as close to perfect as anywhere we've been.

Manager response: WOW! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an eloquent review. It's rewarding to have our first renters of the season for this property notice the hard work the owner and I put into getting her properties in pristine condition for this year. I wish there was a rating system for renters because I would give you 5 stars. You were a pleasure to deal with, greeting your family was fun and you left the house in tip top shape for our cleaning service. BIG thank you for that. Give your puppy a scratch behind the ears for me and hope to see you and your family again.
