About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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 visiting my Inlet Beach townhouse for many years, I decided to call the area home. I now live about eight miles away, in Panama City Beach. I love that I am able to be "hands-on" with my property... I have the peace of mind in knowing that everything is just as it should be, so that my guests can enjoy a fantastic, relaxing vacation!

Mary Sinclair purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Mary Sinclair chose Inlet Beach

After vacationing in Destin for many years, 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!

What makes this townhome unique

The privacy of my place is unbelievable! I made a journal entry once that said "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." I say it 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!

(You can see the beach at my townhouse in Luke Bryan's video, "Old Beach Roller Coaster"...Just Google it...I can see the pier in the video from my place, probably about 200 yards away. :)

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!

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!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

OK, I will start by disclosing that I am the owner of the townhouse. I had blocked these dates on my calendar, to have new carpet installed upstairs. Since Homeaway now sends our guests invitations to write a review, I received one, so I decided to write a review. :)

I have owned my place since 2003, and am still amazed by the peaceful setting...It really feels like a retreat from the world, and the surroundings are so beautiful!

The views from the upper deck are truly breathtaking. The townhouse is very comfortable and clean, and well-stocked is an understatement...

It is a wonderful feeling when my guests enjoy their vacations here...I am very blessed to have such a special place, and so many nice people to share it with...

Life is good at Inlet Beach Hideaway!

Wonderful, pet friendly vacation!

  • 5 of 5

From the start, Mary was so pleasant to work with. She was very responsive to my email inquiries, texts and phone calls, especially with my concerns about having 2 pets (most Homeaway rentals did not permit 2 dogs). She was reasonable in her expectations, i.e. no pets on furniture and no barking to disrupt neighbors. The recommendations that she provides was also one of the reasons that we chose her rental - it was very helpful to identify shopping, eating and entertainment options, especially since we were unfamiliar with the area and only there for a short period of time. Her guidelines were also very clear on her expectations to receive the return deposit. The location was awesome! Just as advertised, it is at the end of a quiet street. Since it was the off season, we barely saw other visitors. It was very quiet. The condo itself had all the amenities one needs, including shampoo and utensils to cook meals with the fresh seafood from one of the many local markets. And, the views were stunning! We lucked out with the weather, but if rainy, there is definitely enough movies and puzzles to keep oneself occupied. Oh, also forgot to mention that Mary left us welcome treats (donuts for the humans and treats for the 4 legged guests). We are already planning a return trip in the future. You won't be disappointed by your decision to stay here!!!
