              The neighborhood is safe, quiet, and friendly. Yet, in a matter of minutes you can be in the activities, restaurants, and night life of Panama City Beach.

              The Pier Park shopping area is a 5 minute drive also the recreation complex at Frank Brown Park is about 5 minutes.

              Holiday Golf and the Hombre Golf Course are about 10 minutes and Bay Point (which has 36 holes including a Jack Nicklaus designed course) and Signal Hill are within 30 minutes.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: I am a high school principal in rural Tennessee. I was raised in Kentucky, but I fell in love with the beach at 12 years old when my parents took the family on vacation in Pensacola. I moved to Florida at 19, but only stayed a few years before relocating to New Orleans where I was a deep-sea diver in the offshore oilfields. At 28 I moved to rural Tennessee where I love to do almost anything outdoors. I love to golf, hunt, fish, and hike the woods.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              I decided to buy in Laguna Beach because of the dedicated beach and the charm of the neighborhood. There is no development on the beach. The beach is open and uncrowded. My home is incredibly convenient to the hustle and bustle of Panama City Beach with loads of fun activities and great restaurants, but at the end of the day when I vacation I want to be able to get away from the crowd.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              It is really great to be so close to the beach. It is easily walkable in 5 minutes if you just want to stroll down to take in the splendor of a sunset. Yet you can get in your car and be at the Pier Park shopping center in five minutes, or at The Holiday Golf Course in less than 10 minutes. Frank Brown Park, a recreation complex which hosts several athletic events and community activities is less than 10 minutes away. I love being able to walk to Thomas Donuts first thing in the morning. It is only 2 and a half blocks away, and they make fresh home-made donuts daily. The apple fritters are incredible! Grab one, walk back to the house and sit on the porch with a cup of coffee.
