I love the water and the beach. Surf fishing or just walking on the beach is a favorite of mine. I like laying on the hammock on the porch with the gulf breeze blowing in my face. I never want to leave the house when I am on the hammock. I also enjoy morning coffee on the front porch listening to the waves. The screened porch is an excellent place to enjoy lunch. Sunset is always an important time of day to go outside on the large master suite with family or friends and enjoy looking at the gulf and watch the sun go down.

Perfect family beach house
Idle Time is ideal for its proximity to the beach - less than 5 min walk - and the very comfortable home that is away from busy 30A. We had two families with 8 pple total and it was the perfect size and great open floor plan downstairs. We liked that it was not part of a planned/gated condo community but such a short drive to rosemary beach and the publix five minutes away. Awesome time, I highly recommend!
Thank you for your great review! I hope you come back to Idle Time, soon!
Relaxing home near the beach
This home was very well kept and decorated nicely. We had a large group and were all very comfortable in the house. It had everything we needed and more. The house is a short walk to the beach which was well maintained. We also visited several nearby beaches in Panama City Beach, Rosemary Beach, Seacrest Beach, and Destin all of which were beautiful. The owner was extremely warm and friendly, and the Managment company was responsive to our needs. We all enjoyed our stay and will love to return one day!
Idle Time Inlet Beach
Great house, great location with views of the ocean from the upstairs bedrooms. Idle Time had everything we needed and more. Easy walk to the ocean, Rosemary Beach and a short drive to Origins golf course as well as several excellent restaurants nearby. The house was clean and very comfortable with a well stocked kitchen and a great dinning room area. Thank you Kerry for sharing your home with us.
Lovely, well stocked, easy and comfortable property
We enjoyed a wonderful week at this house! Fire-pit out back were a plus!! The "bunk room" was very comfortable and much nicer than expected, even for 9th grade kids. Pet friendly and close to Rosemary beach!
Things to Consider
The house was spacious, decorated nicely and close to beach with a great washer & dryer. However, the house was not very clean. There was dried food and crap all over cabinet handles and drawers. There was dog hair all over the furniture. Lots of light bulbs were out. Very low water pressure for showering, didnt feel clean after a day at beach with suntan lotion. Carpets were heavily soiled.
If you are visiting my property please contact us or my rental agency immediately after check in if you find any items that need fixing or cleaned in the house. I replaced my cleaners after this review. I cleaned the carpets and replaced the shower head. The inspections were increased for the house by my rental agency to weekly. My rental agency started a maintenance program to fix and visit the property on a more regular basis.
Can't Say Enough About Idle Time
This was our 7th consecutive year staying at Idle Time, and we would not stay anywhere else for our Emerald Coast beach vacation. The location is ideal, being a short walk from a very private beach and near the end of a dead end street allowing for endless hours of bike riding for the kids. Yet, you're also close enough for a nice stroll or a quick family bike ride to the amenities of the pricier 30-A communities. Idle Time has enough space for everyone to be comfortable without being wasteful of space - we fit up to 8 adults (ranging from 30-72 years) and 2 kids (who have grown up coming here) easily. It's always well-maintained and clean during our visits. The front porches are so relaxing and a postcard of Panhandle easy living with their unspoiled views and ocean breezes. The grill is great for barbecuing, and the owners have thought of just about everything you'll need. We loved the upgraded washer and dryer this year, and the master bathroom is perfect. They also have house and beach toys for the kids. We can't say enough great things about Idle Time, which is why we've returned year-after-year and will continue to do so. It's a solid value and a hidden gem! I would highly recommend Idle Time to family, friends and readers of this review.
