Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-10)

No elevators or waiting to get to the beach, no hordes of strangers - just a little bit of paradise. Beautiful peaceful 'Laguna Beach, est. 1936'... directly on Front Beach Road across from the warm Gulf of Mexico and magnificent sunsets! Gorgeous unobstructed view but only a short distance from all the downtown action.

We take great pride in our home. Sit on the patio or deck and read a book. We have rocking chairs inside and out. Watch the sunset from the sun room or the front yard. Swim the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, stroll the pristine white sandy beach, or kick back and relax. Enjoy cooking in the full kitchen or outdoor grill with dining on the outdoor patio and watch while the kids play in the large front yard with plenty of room for badminton. Also enjoy a large screen TV with satellite, including player.

Additional Apartments: Behind the house is are two apartments, a studio downstairs and a one bedroom upstairs. The studio sleeps 2 and the one bedroom sleeps 4.

The one bedroom has a 5' X 8' balcony with a beautiful view of the gulf. Both units are clean, newly remodeled and quiet. The studio is perfect for a couple and a baby or small child. The one bedroom is great for 1-2 couples.

Both have Dish TV, stocked kitchens, full-size ranges (if you really want to cook), and all the amenities of home, plus the gulf.

Book the house and apartments for a very special family reunion - we even held a wedding reception on the front lawn.

About Al Chamberlain

We moved to the northern Virginia area in 1985 after spending 4 and 12 (respectively) great years in Seattle. We met in 1981 and both had connections to Panama City Beach, Florida. Al lived in Mobile, Alabama in the ‘60s and traveled to PCB for vacation and his son graduated from Florida State in the nineties, which brought us back; Ginger grew up between Birmingham, Alabama and Seattle, Washington and always traveled to PCB to visit family living in the area. It seemed to be a no brainer to choose this area for our vacation home. We came upon this Beautiful Historic Cottage in 2002 after checking every beach property from Fort Morgan to Apalachicola - some 200 miles. We were truly blessed when we found this beautiful spot on God’s great earth.

Al Chamberlain purchased this house in 2002

Why Al Chamberlain chose Florida

We love the beauty of this area. The weather is delightful. The people are friendly and welcoming. Just a beautiful place to come. Plus our puppies love it here!

FABULOUS HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect PLACE to stay for a family get away. Lovely home across the street from the beach, close to dining, grocery shopping and activities for the kids. All you NEED in walking distance away "How Convenient"! I personally had a problem with not being able to enjoy the beach outings with family due to my condition but, was overall satisfied with being safe from hurricane Irma. THANKS Al, YOU'RE THE BEST! GOD BLESS!

Charming house with great location.

  • 3 of 5

The beach was nice and the house was far enough away from the hotels to not be as crowded. There were some cleaning the house before we left, I figured since we paid a cleaning fee that was a little much especially since we were on vacation. Other than the cleaning linens and not getting refundable deposit back, I really enjoyed the stay and had a great vacation.

Owner's Response: Sandie is a great person along with her family. I had a problem in the cottage while they were there and Sandie and the family stepped up and was very understanding while we worked through the problem. It was very very kind of them to put up with the problem allowing us to work through it. Sandie is on your side!

Very spacious, GREAT location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this Laguna Home!!! The location was perfect for adults (a bit away from the PC madness), yet close enough for the teenagers to get there quickly!! 12 could have slept there comfortably, so the 8 of us had plenty of room. The decor and the home itself was a bit dated, but still clean, and the size and location made up for that! Thomas' Donut Shop was a stones throw away, and the Carousel grocery a stones throw the other way. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Perfect beach home for any family

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this house during our week stay. The house had everything we needed to cook meals, including a charcoal grill. The place was clean and the beds were comfortable. The location couldn't be any better - Thomas's​ Donuts & Ice cream next door, beach access across the street, and Carousels grocery store a couple blocks away. The house is just far enough away from the resorts to avoid the Spring Break crowd, but close enough to easily drive to Pier Park and places to eat. The large front porch was our favorite spot for mornings and evenings that we weren't on the beach.

We look forward to staying here again in the near future.

Beautiful ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at this home. Clean and plenty of room for 5 adults. When we were at the house, most of the time was spent in the sunroom enjoying the ocean views and sunsets.

Will stay again if we have the opportunity.
