Are you a diver (or want to learn), spear fisher, hook & line fisher, golfer, or just love the water? Do you like to relax on the couch and watch the sunset over the water through the back windows? This gorgeous, one level (no steps/stairs) villa has the Panama City Diving charter boat directly 55 steps behind the back deck. The villa is waterside in the exclusive Baypoint Golf & Marina gated subdivision, with the water and marina on one side, and two golf courses on the other side. The golf clubhouse and pro shop are walking distance from the villa. Bricks & Barley restaurant, with its excellent pizzas, calzones, sandwiches, beer and wine selections, and small grocery area, is just 75 steps from the back door. The villa is updated with new appliances, tile floors, new furniture, kitchen totally equipped, new bedding and mattress, new washer & dryer in the unit. Flat screen TV's in living room and both bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, the second bedroom has a full-sized bed (with fantastic water views) and the leather couch turns into a full-size bed. The main bathroom has a walk-in shower. The large back deck has seating/dining area, with umbrella, beside the water and marina! A block down in the neighborhood is access to two public pools located in Sheraton Resort at Flip Flops Bar & Grill by the water, with awesome views and sunsets. Beside Flip Flops is the boardwalk, which leads to Pelicans restaurant above the water, on the boardwalk, which also has amazing sunsets. Next to Pelicans, on the boardwalk, is the dock for the Bay Point Lady, a water shuttle to Shell Island and back. There are also jet ski and pontoon boat rentals there. There are also a Publix (with pharmacy) and Winn-Dixie grocery stores just off Bay Point property. The villa is walking distance to diving, golf, tennis, restaurants, snorkeling tours, charter fishing, other water activities, and tiki bars.
The Steel Slinger, Panama City Diving’s dive charter boat, is docked directly behind the villa. Step out of the back door of the villa, and in approximately 55 steps you are on the boat! We provide a cart to pull your diving gear to the boat. The folks at Panama City Diving are all amazing people, excellent diving instructors, and great friends. Pat and his crew run a fantastic and friendly shop. Most are experts/professionals at spear fishing, and can teach you as well. There is even a very nice fish fillet/cleaning table on the dock beside the boat. They are also family friendly and always do all they can to take care of their customers, and make sure they have a great family experience.
This property is "almost like" a live aboard dive ship. You can: wake up in the morning; load the cart with your dive gear; walk to the Steel Slinger for a day of diving; grab dinner at Bricks & Barley next door; get a night’s rest; and do it all again the next day, without ever getting into your car!
Just across the lagoon, there is excellent shore diving and beaches at the jetties at St. Andrews State park. You can actually see the park from the villa. We provide a family pass for free access to the park, which stays in the villa. St. Andrews has many things to offer in addition to shore diving. There is a full surf, gulf facing beach for regular beach activities and the "kiddie pool' beach, which is sheltered from the surf waves, and is mostly shallow, so it is perfect for children. The kiddie pool area is also great for shell hunting, because it has many unbroken shells that wash up on the beach. St. Andrews also has another shuttle to shell island; pavilions for picnics; nature trails; fishing; a general store; deer throughout the park, and even an alligator pond. As the crow files, St. Andrews is a mile or less from the villa, but, unless you swim across the lagoon (don't recommend that) you just have to drive around the lagoon, but it is extremely close.
Thanks again for considering our villa! Enjoy your vacation!

About Valerie S. Blaser- owner of unit
Hello, and thank you for considering our villa! We love it and Val manages it for us. We have been married for fourteen years and have two girls. We are a family of divers. I am PADI Certified Master Diver, and my wife, and our oldest daughter are both PADI Certified Divers. Our youngest is excited to get her diving certification, as soon as she is old enough. Until then, her favorite thing is to be "co-captain" on the Steel Slinger dive boat, during the dive charters.
Valerie S. Blaser- owner of unit purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Valerie S. Blaser- owner of unit chose Upper Grand Lagoon
Are you a diver or a golfer? This villa is embedded in the Bay Point golfing community, with two full golf courses, and the Pro Shop is just walking distance away! Val, our property manger, is an avid golfer, lives in Bay Point, and can help with all your golfing needs. Since we are avid divers, we dive with the guys at Panama City Diving, and their charter dive boat, the Steel Slinger, is docked directly behind our villa. You step out of the back door of the villa, and in approximately 55 steps you are on the boat! The folks at Panama City Diving are all amazing people, excellent diving instructors, and great friends. Pat and his crew run a fantastic and friendly shop. Most are expert/professional spearfishers and can teach you as well. There is even a very nice fish fillet/cleaning table on the dock beside the boat. They are also family friendly and always do all they can to take care of us and make sure we have a great family experience. This property is "almost like" a live aboard dive ship. You can: wake up in the morning; load the cart with your dive gear; walk to the Steel Slinger for a day of diving; grab dinner at Bricks & Barley next door; get a nights rest; and do it all again the next day, without ever getting into your car! There is excellent shore diving and beaches at the jetties at St. Andrews State park. We provide a family pass for free access to the park. You can enjoy the beautiful gulf side beach, or the waveless "kiddie pool" beach on the jetties side. You just nave to walk over a sand dune to go from one to the other. The park is on the other side of the lagoon from the villa. You can actually see it from the dock behind the villa. As the crow files, it is a mile or less from the villa, but, unless you swim across the lagoon (don't recommend that) you have to do the few minute drive to the park, but it is extremely close.
What makes this Condo unique
You can also do shore diving in the jetties at St. Andrews State Park, which is only a couple of minutes drive away from the villa, or one mile "as the crow flies," and has amazing beaches! You could probably swim there from the eastern edge of Bay Point, since it is just across the lagoon. St. Andrews has many things to offer: shore diving in the jetties; full surf gulf facing beach for regular beach activities; the "kiddie pool' beach, which is sheltered from the surf, and is shallow, so it is perfect for children; another shuttle to shell island; pavilions for picnics; nature trails; fishing; a general store; and even an alligator pond. We provide a family pass for St. Andrews State Park, and the pass stays in the villa. We dive more than we golf, but the Nicholas and Legends courses on property are beautiful, and there is a lovely clubhouse, with pro shop, and restaurant, only walking distance from the villa. Val, our property manager, is an avid golfer, and can help you with all your golfing needs. There are also Publix (with pharmacy) and Winn-Dixie grocery stores only a couple of minutes away from the villa, just off Bay Point property. Thanks again for considering our villa! Enjoy your vacation!

Center of it all
Being familiar with Bay Point, my wife and I were looking for a place to stay where we can take walks with our small dog. We quickly realized this place offered so much more. The first thing we did when we got there late in the afternoon was sit in the recliner chairs and enjoy this amazing sunset. The place was spacious and well kept. The owners contacted us on the drive down to offer additional assistance with activities available in Bay Point. There is washer and dryer available so you are able to do laundry if necessary. The owners also spend time there, so there are nice amenities like Cable TV and Cable Internet. So I was able to check my work emails in the evenings. We did not spend much time in the unit during the daytime because we were out and about in PCB. However, it was a nice place to lay your head down at night or relax after a day of activities. There is a great restaurant right next door for calzones and you can sit outside. We only wished we had some more time so we could have gone over to the Sheraton and had some food and drinks over there. The only item that I would alert people to before renting is the size of the 2nd bedroom. It's on the smaller side, but I think there is a futon that opens up into an additional bed. If you are a single person, couple or have small children, the place is perfect. All in all, the location is perfect, parking is easy, owners are friendly and helpful and there is so much to do in Bay Point. We would definitely stay here again if the place is available.
Very nice villa!
Jon and Christy were wonderful hosts, informative and easy to communicate with, making sure we had all we needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to dive, golf or just relax and enjoy this beautiful seaside community!!
