Owner info

About the owner: We are a retired couple with a wonderful close and extended family who love the Beach House and we all spend as much time together as possible. Our house was built not only for our comfort but also for the kids and grandkids in mind. Some of our children are now grown and their children are now sleeping in our new full size crib making wonderful memories. We are there when you need us.

Why the Owner Chose West Panama City Beach, Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
The beauty of the complex,the family community (9 grandchildren still spend some of their vacation time with us at the beach ), having our own beach house with our own walkover to the beach and watching the sun go down. It doesn't get any better.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Not logging stuff to the beach, magnificent views from our living room, master bedroom including guest bedrooms with a view of Lake Carillon, Just sitting on the deck watching children digging there way to somewhere (who knows) while we enjoy a time out sitting on our covered deck and getting out of the sun for while and may be having a refreshing drink with friends and family. You will not be disappointed
