Private Homes house description

The Outpost Gulf front beach house is a quaint, 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath cottage that sleeps 12. The location in the center of Panama City Beach is ideal and the beach and Gulf views behind the house are spectacular. In response to some of the reviews last year, large improvements have been made to the house in the last year. We replaced all the floor covering, painted the entire interior, replaced all the kitchen cabinet doors, replaced much of the furniture, replaced all the bed covers, installed new window shades, and replaced all the exterior doors. Last spring we replaced the exterior siding and paint the entire exterior. The concerns that some of our guests expressed last year will no longer be an issue. The improvements have made a remarkable difference.

The Outpost has two separate living spaces. The main part of the house consists of the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom with a king bed and private bathroom, a guest bedroom with two full beds and a shared bathroom, and a Florida room with two day beds that is ideal for kids. There is also a queen sofa sleeper in the living room. The main part of the house sleeps up to 10. The other two guest bedrooms are separate from the main house but are connected under the same roof. Access is through an exterior breezeway. One has two twin beds and a full private bathroom. It is ideal for the in-laws or older children. The other guest bedroom has a full bed and a half bath in the breezeway. Because these bedrooms are not connected inside the main part of the house, they are not ideal for small children.

The living room includes a new flat screen LCD TV that is not shown in the pictures. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you would need to prepare and serve meals. The dishwasher and refrigerator were recently replaced and the counter tops were recently resurfaced. It is not a gourmet kitchen but includes all the essential appliances, cookware, and utensils. We have Wi-Fi with unlimited service. There is ample parking for up to 4 vehicles.

If you are looking for a beach getaway without all the frills, pretense, and expense of a 5 star resort, choose The Outpost and come relax with us!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1973

About: In the early 1970s our father was the Commanding General of Fort Rucker, Alabama. During that time our parents discovered Panama City Beach and decided to live out their dream of owning a beach house. They purchased The Outpost in 1973 and it has been a part of our lives ever since. Over the years our family has spread out but we have kept the property in the family and regard it as a home base for gatherings. We love to visit and reminisce about the great times we have shared in this home, and on this beautiful beach. We feel like we own a piece of paradise and we invite you to stay with us to experience everything that continues to draw us to the beach. We hope to have you as our guest soon.

Why Private Homes:
It was always a tradition for the family to come and visit the beach during the summers. We loved staying in the house during our childhood and continue to enjoy our regular visits to Panama City Beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views are breathtaking! When you are at the Outpost seated in a comfortable chair overlooking the dunes and sea oats toward the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, you will feel like you're in your own little world.
