This home features living room with sleeper sofa, private bedroom with queen size bed, and our special Parrot loft bedroom (queen bed) for your children's enjoyment.

                          Our Sandcastle is located in Sunswept Condominiums on the beach side of Thomas Drive. We have an ocean view from the living room and the deck conveniently overlooks the swimming pool for family enjoyment. As long time second home owners and visitors to PCB, we love our beach and the sugary white sands.

                          Our beloved beach provides a wonderful family vacation area for creating memories. You are close enough to all of the exciting restaurants, activities, and amenities of PCB but can return back to a family environment within Sunswept.

                          We hope you share our love of the beach, and join us for your special family memories.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2013

                          About the owner: Our 'beach story' began over 40 years ago. On one of their many journeys, our parents discovered the sugar white beaches of Panama City Beach in 1973. It is with this visit that our family story unfolds across four generations. Our Mom immediately fell in love with the sugary white beach, crystal clear blue waters, and the many pools that would sometimes form on the beach. Living in Missouri, Panama City Beach offered a tropical getaway that they could frequent for extended weekends as well as full week getaways. In 1977, Dad surprised Mom with a very special 'Sandcastle' birthday present. He purchased an adorable little beach cottage two blocks from where we are today. My Mom appropriately named her new escape 'Our Sandcastle'. In those days, only the little cottages, and now our new 'Sunswept Sandcastle' were about the only structures on the beach. I remember spending days on the beach, when we would only see 20 people pass by within a day. Beside the beach front houses you still see today, the rest of the beach was a multitude of sand dunes. In the early days, the favorite beach front restaurant was called 'The Beach Party', it still exists today, but is now called Schooners. It still remains a family favorite for everyone, and one of the first places we enjoy on each visit. Dad had a special love of boating, and back then Dad would leave early in the morning and go fishing for the catch of the day. Then during the afternoon, we would seek out fresh oysters, scallops, and crabs from the bay. Mom would create quite the feast, including our Grandpa's famous Oyster Stew. I remember walking the beach with Dad, and how he named the beachfront building of Sunswept 'The Big Gray Monster'. At two stories, it was the tallest structure near their beloved Sandcastle.

                          Why the Owner Chose Sunswept:
                          Mom had a special love of sharing her Sandcastle with everyone. I can't tell you how many honeymoons took place in her Sandcastle. Her family and friends enjoyed over 28 years vacationing here on Thomas Drive. We have a library of guestbooks, with many wonderful times shared by all. Mom especially loved the beach. She is much remembered for the special messages and prayers she wrote in the sand for all of us. Her most memorable message in the sand was 'Thank you God for everything'. Our family continued making special beach memories into the third generation of our family. Our favorite event was a final night Luau, including grass skirts, leis, music and dancing on the beach as our farewell until the next visit. As with all things, unexpected changes occur. In 2007, we lost our treasured Sandcastle. My Mom was truly heartbroken, but we continued to find ways to return to our beloved beach. In July 2011, my Mom made her last trip to Panama City Beach with her youngest grandchild. In February 2012, we lost Mom. Leaving a special gift to her three grandchildren, it was unanimously decided that the best tribute to Grandma would be to purchase a new Sandcastle. So, here we are: with our young 4th generation, we begin a new chapter of 'Our Sandcastle'. My greatest hope is that we can bring as much happiness to our visiting guests here as my Mom did in her Sandcastle for so many years. We hope you join us!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Sunswept is a wonderful community, nestled next to the beach. You have all the amenities of a high rise condo, but the small neighborhood feeling for creating wonderful family memories.
