Looking for a private beach retreat, away from the traffic, crowds & noise? Then you will love Inlet Beach Hideaway! This charming, clean & comfortable townhouse is the perfect beach getaway!

Directly on the Gulf, with breathtaking, panoramic views! We are next to Camp Helen State Park, so at least a half mile of beautiful, undeveloped beach is yours to enjoy! There is only one home between us & the park (and they rarely visit!) Check out the pictures...

BEACH CHAIR SERVICE is included! Two chairs & umbrella will be set up daily (beginning the first week in March through Oct.) We also have extra chairs & umbrellas at the townhouse.

Coastal Living Magazine recently rated adjoining Rosemary Beach as the '#4 Best Beach for Swimming in the U.S'...Our beach is the same as Rosemary's, with less people!

It's a short driving distance to fantastic dining, night life, world-class golf courses, kid's activities and tons of great shopping! Destin, Panama City Beach, Seaside, Santa Rosa, Grayton, and many more, are just minutes away. Several great eateries, including Shades, a local favorite & the new Donut Hole, are within two miles, and countless others are within 5 to 10 minutes.

You'll love the comfortable, overstuffed furniture...We provide WiFi, 3 TV's w/ Dish TV & DVD's, 2 VCR's, 135 + movies, 3 stereos w/ CD players, (two w/ mp3), lots of books, magazines, games, puzzles, etc...A rainy day, although rare, can be fun & relaxing!

You'll find everything you need in the well-equipped kitchen, and a charcoal grill is provided.

Relax on the main level covered porch...Soak up the sun, star gaze from the private deck off the master suite. (Luke Bryan filmed "An Old Beach Roller Coaster" video on the beach by the pier. See it on YouTube. :)

Pier Park is only about 10 minutes away, and has something for everyone! The colorful, coastal-style architecture reminds you that you are at the beach! There are 124 stores, from Dillards to the Dollar Tree and 25 +/-restaurants/eateries...

There is also an awesome state of the art Grand 16 Movie Theater, nail salons, ferris wheel (coming soon) and much more!

The beach across the street from Margaritaville is pet friendly. HookD by the pier allows dogs on the deck. There are walking/bike trails in Aaron Bessant park (where the amphitheater is located). Google Pier Park...It is awesome!

We are about a mile from the 18 mile-long bike and jogging trails along 30-A. You'll find countless shops, restaurants, pubs, art galleries, etc., and beautiful coastal dune lakes to enjoy along the way! Bike rentals are available with delivery to the townhouse (info provided upon booking.)

The Panama City Airport is less than 20 minutes away, and is now International.

Frank Brown Park is about 8 miles away. They have an Olympic pool, Aquatic center, tennis courts, ball & soccer fields, basketball courts, fresh & salt water fishing, miles of bike & walking trails, fenced pet areas, activities for seniors & much more! (It is over 200 acres!)

Your four-legged member of the family is welcome to join you! The fishing is great & the sunsets and sunrises are to die for!

My goal is to provide everything you want/need for a perfect vacation!

So, come and enjoy the good life at Inlet Beach Hideaway! If you're like most, you may never want to leave!

About Mary Sinclair

After driving from Lake Lanier in Georgia for many years to visit my place at Inlet Beach, I have decided to call the area home. I now live about eight miles away, in Panama City Beach. I have peace of mind in knowing that everything is just as it should be, so that my guests will enjoy a fantastic, relaxing vacation!

Mary Sinclair purchased this townhome in 2003

Why Mary Sinclair chose Inlet Beach

I had been vacationing in Destin for many years, when I discovered Inlet Beach through a friend. I fell in love with the quaintness and serenity of the area. You have all the conveniences for a wonderful vacation, but the beaches are never crowded! It truly is the best of both worlds, one of the few places like this left in Florida...

What makes this townhome unique

The privacy of my place is unbelievable! I once wrote in my journal, "I am sitting on my porch at Inlet Beach, and the only sounds I hear are the crashing waves and the breeze in the palm fronds." It is truly good for the soul! The views are pristine...Sugar white beaches and emerald - blue water...It is the most relaxing, peaceful place I have ever been...This little corner of Inlet Beach is a slice of paradise!

Luke Bryan's video, "Old Beach Roller Coaster", was filmed on the beach in front of my place...You can see the pier in the video from upstairs, it is probably about 200 yards away. :) (Google the video)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mary,

We thank you for another fabulous vacation at Inlet Beach Hideaway! The weather was perfect and we enjoyed cooking fresh seafood & dining out on the porch.

Our doggie loves the beach and it is nice to be able to bring him along! This is our favorite spot in Florida!

We will be back next May!

Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two little dogs just returned from an 11 night stay at Mary's cute beach-front condo. We had the most wonderful, relaxing time! It looks exactly like the photos. Mary has done everything to make her place the perfect home away from home. All we had to buy were groceries. It was so quiet, the views of the Gulf were gorgeous, and it was by far one of the cleanest places we have rented to date. Mary is so easy to work with and she was most kind. She left a cheesecake for us that we enjoyed as our Valentine's Day treat-it's those little things that make all the difference. We will absolutely be back. Thank you, Mary!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My Daughter and I spent a week at Inlet Beach celebrating my 50 birthday, and the comment kept being made..."this MUST be Heaven". It is just Awe inspiring! Mary's Condo is very clean, has everything that you could want and feels just as welcoming and inviting as your own home. Sitting on the deck outside the master suite at night and looking up at the stars was a welcomed site for us "City Girls" We enjoyed hearing nothing but the ocean and birds. The white sugar sand beach was a great way to start the day, just you, and God's gift of nature. If you want adventure, Panama Beach and Destin are not far away. We loved our adventure to these citys but always enjoyed coming "home" to the tranquality of Inlet Beach. The perfect way to end a day at Inlet Beach is sitting on the beach and watching the sun set...BREATHTAKING.

Inlet Beach will be a return vacation spot for this Texas girl!

Comfortable, secluded and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

From first pulling into the drive to packing up to leave we enjoyed every minute. The furniture is comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the beds make sleep easy. The short walk either over the boardwalk or on the path through the dunes took us to sugary sands and lots of sun. The chair and umbrella service was much appreciated. Shopping and dining are close and plentiful. We hope to stay again in the future and bring our Scottish terrier again, too.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This cute beachfront condo was perfect for our trip. We got to really enjoy the beach at all different times of the day and night, and our favorite spot was the upstairs balcony. Beautiful views of the green waves! No crowds, either, which is a great thing about Inlet Beach. Mary made us feel so welcome and she has a book full of info of how everything works and where to eat, which was helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

this town house is a bite of wonderfulness, just what we needed , it was private , beautiful all day ,every day, private beech, I had so much fun playing with my 90lb lab in the ocean.

andearly morning walks on beach while the sun is comming and I'm the only one on the beech.. I could go on for hours... Mary thought of every thing , the bed was so wonderful we just sunk right in, with the softest sheets I ever slept on , only to shower in the moring with an ocean view, and sound of waves hitting the beach ,I grab a towel .. not just any towel, Mary has seen to a verry thick soft bath towel and a white terry rob to have coffee on one of the 2 decks faceing the ocean,Mary we can not thank you enough, hopefully we can come bake next year.
