About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath, 3 story, Easy Beach Access, Gulf Views, Pet Friendly

"Anchors Away" is a pet friendly, Southern Coastal Decor Villa with easy beach access. It has 3 bedrooms/ 3 baths with Gulf of Mexico views from the second and third floors. It is part of an exclusive beach townhome community consisting of only 10 three-story villas and is centrally located for guests who want a great Panama City Beach location with easy walking access to shopping, dining and the beach.

"Anchors Away" is a five star / very highly recommended rental by travel agencies and guests for its location, beach access, amenities, size, cleanliness and affordability. It accommodates up to 10 guests but is also perfect for 2, 4 or 6 guests who want a beach town house with privacy on each floor for your friends and/or family. Anchors Away is perfect for guests who want luxury for their Winter retreats, vacations, romantic getaways, special occasions, shopping weekends, concerts, sporting events or Honeymoons.

Anchors Away Beach House has an open floor plan with 9, 10 and 12 foot ceilings which allows the coastal breezes to flow throughout the house. Each floor has privacy for large family or friend events.

The third floor master bedroom has a king size bed, queen size sleeper sofa, ensuite bathroom and privacy balcony. The second floor guest bedroom has a king size bed with ensuite bathroom. Each second and third floor balcony is covered to enjoy the Florida environment without the sun and heat.

The second floor kitchen is fully stocked for gourmet chefs with granite counter tops, bar and dining area for guests. The second floor balcony has additional dining for guests. The second floor living room has a queen size sleeper sofa for guests. There is a high definition television located in the living area. The second floor balcony is mostly used for dining al fresco or just enjoying the breezes and views.

The first floor has a complete efficiency apartment with a queen size bed, full kitchen, inside dining area (4 guests) full bath and sliding doors to a private patio set up for outside dining. The first floor privacy patio has a charcoal grill for outdoor grilling.

Each bedroom has wifi and high definition televisions with video libraries. The first floor living area is recommended for family members with limited mobility and/or guests with pets who may need some play time at the beach.

The community swimming pool is steps away from the front door and guests can relax downstairs near the pool while sipping their favorite beverage or read a book while having their morning coffee on the second floor or third floor balconies and watch the activities by the pool. Regardless of your choice, the pool is perfect after a day spent on the beach with the family and your guests.

I have also supplied two beach wagons which make it easier to transport your gear to the beach. This beach gear includes skim boards and body boards for beach fun. All this and 10 beach chairs are supplied out your back door for your vacation.

My beach houses have been reviewed by independent travel agencies for cleanliness, location, value and fun. I have only received Five Star reviews from these agencies and my guests since opening Summer 2017.

Due to a demand for luxury and affordable beach venues, I added Anchors Away in May 2017 as a beach getaway so vacationers could have a wonderful place to relax with their families and bring their pets if desired. I have received over 70 five star reviews from my guests since opening in May 2017 on my HOMEAWAY and VRBO sites. This house is gorgeous and the location is only a short distance to Pier Park for shopping and restaurants or Frank Brown Park for baseball, softball or concerts. I really love this property because Anchors Away is centrally located for all your beach activities to include the Shipwreck Water Park, Thomas' Donuts, Sandbar Grill and Dusty's Bar and Grill. I encourage all my potential guests to research our area and my house. Through VRBO and HOMEAWAY you can see the exact location of your vacation getaway through their Google Earth finder located at the bottom of the web page of the house your interested. My house is near beach access # 65 ( approximately 100 yards) which all my guests use to enter the beach. I have tried to take the guess work away from my potential guests so they can rest assured that they will have a dream house for their beach vacation. This is my home-away-from-home and I try to make sure it will be yours too for this vacation and many returns.

In 2018, Anchors Away now has a concierge service that allows my guests to have a 24/7 point of contact during your vacation. Plus, the beach house has a covered first floor front carport for vehicles of our guests. There is also a dining area on the first floor front covered patio area for cocktails, breakfast and/or snacks near the pool.

We are also near the beach dog park at Pier Park and Frank Brown Park ( about 1 mile) where you can stay all day on the beach or at the park with your pet. For my guests with pets, I recommend that you bring pet gates for your elderly dogs which may have trouble climbing stairs. Also, our common grounds are not fenced so everyone can have access to our green areas. There is a non-refundable pet fee required by my HOA so please pay that prior to your arrival. Remember, our pets always need a vacation with their family so do not leave your best friend behind and bring them to Anchors Away.

You will have a great time at Anchors Away and make family memories that will last a lifetime. Sincerely, Jo.

Absolutely Fantastic Vacation. I will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough good things about this vacation. Let me start with an awesome location. You are really in the heart of the beach at Anchors Away. This is my second vacation at Panama City Beach but this will be the only house I come back to for my future vacations. The house is fabulous. My wife loved it and the kids too. Plenty of room for your family and some privacy. I loved the balconies and had breakfast and coffee each morning on the second floor balconies. We took our pups to the beach each day. Use beach access #65 for quick access to your beach. The kitchens were grand. My oldest teenagers used the first floor kitchen and the adults and our friends used the main kitchen on the second floor. Great layout for enjoying the family and giving your kids some supervised activities. The pool is just across from your front door. A great way to keep an eye on the kids but remain sheltered from the Florida sunshine. We really enjoyed this vacation and Anchors Away is convenient to everything.
