About J.L. and Sandy Howell

My name is Sandy Howell and my home is in Georgia. This beach house is our second home and I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we do.

J.L. and Sandy Howell purchased this townhome in 1999

Why J.L. and Sandy Howell chose Laguna Beach

Take one look at the sunset and you would not want to rent anywhere else. Our townhome is located right on the sand and is located just minutes to recreation areas and shopping. An absolutely wonderful place to spend your vacation.

What makes this townhome unique

Free WiFi . Walk right off the porch on a beautiful white sandy beach.

It is so relaxing going to sleep listening to the roar of the gulf waves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

J. L., we had a wonderful time at your condo last week and didn't want our vacation time to end. The water was the prettiest I have seen in a long time, and the waves were great for my grandsons to play in. One sunset in particular the sky was filled with yellows and oranges and gold and what looked like a light purple. It was simply beautiful! The new living room furniture was very comfortable and roomy.

Thanks again for being so gracious and accommodating to us. You are a pleasure to work with.

This is our second time here. As soon you park your car and walk in your breath is taken away. No step No elevator to mess with walk out your back door and toes in sand. This unite is kept up very nicely it has everything you need to make your stay GREAT !!!!. You are just few minutes away from famous “Thomas Donuts” that you have to eat every morning. Pictures show everything in this home it is great to have a place to stay this nice. Like to thank Owners for use of there home and look forward coming back year after year. Owners are just a phone call away if you do need anything (like not being able to get door open as I did, but wife could :) :). We can not wait until time to come back.

Comfy and cozy piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our second winter here and enjoyed it tremendously...even with winter being the coldest in memory of most around here.. The beach house is so well appointed, supplied with everything you need to cook up a nice hot meal on those cold dreary days :-), we are now able to enjoy stepping out on deck and feeling like it's summer. Less than 2 weeks to go before we head up north...will miss this place, but plan to be back next winter.

Simply great place to spend winter months.

This was our six time vacationing in Panama City beach and our first time at this townhouse . I have to say it was the best place we've ever stayed. This townhouse is nice and well maintained and right on the beach. The owners made everything so easy we had the best vacation this year cause we didn't have to carry all our stuff blocks down the street to get to the beach all we had to do was walk out the back door.
