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 and many more great beach towns are just minutes away. Close-by places to eat include Shades, The Donut Hole, Dunkin Donuts, Waffle House, and countless others are within 5 to 10 minutes away.

We provide WiFi, 3 TV's w/ Dish satellite & DVD's, 2 VCR's, 95 + 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 his "An Old Beach Roller Coaster" video on the beach by the pier. You can see it on YouTube. :)

We provide plenty of beach chairs & umbrellas for your use, and a beach cart to carry your things to the beach..

Pier Park is about 10 minutes away, and has something for everyone! There are 124 stores, from Dillards to the Dollar Tree and 25 +/-restaurants/eateries...

State of the art Grand 16 Movie Theater, day spas, 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 International Airport is less than 20 minutes away.

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, two fenced pet play areas (for big and small doggies), activities for seniors & much more!

The fishing is great & the sunsets and sunrises are to die for!

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!

Perfect Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed this sweet beach spot! Mary was the most gracious host we've ever experienced! The house was very clean, comfortable & welcoming. We especially enjoyed the covered porch during the day and the top deck at night! This house had everything we could need or even want for our days at the beach. The personal touches Mary adds just makes it even sweeter! From the cheesecake left for the humans to the fresh flowers left on the counter and even treats for the dogs....Mary is just the perfect host! I must say, the beds are so comfortable...that was probably the best surprise ever! Normally when I'm away from my own bed, there is a certain degree of discomfort. NOT AT THIS HOUSE!! The beds were to die for! I almost wanted to take the master bed with me when I left! :) We've been renting VRBO's on 30A and South Walton County for 22+ years and this was the most relaxing week we've ever had at the beach....thanks to Mary! Wonderful location, wonderful house, wonderful host! I can't say enough about this perfect little slice of heaven on the beach! Mary, thanks again for sharing it with us!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect!! The beach is secluded and very quiet. The property owner, Mary, has thought of everything you may need. We had a lovely welcome note waiting for us along with some yummy candies and a bag of treats for our dog. The views are amazing! We also loved all of the board games, movies and books that are in the house. We certainly plan to go back next year.
