Welcome to The Big Chill Panama City Beach Florida!

The Big Chill is perfect for family gatherings and entertaining. It has a large, open floor plan and it's 3000 sq. feet is beautifully furnished.

The upstairs has two beachfront master bedrooms - each with a king bed, TV & DVD, beachfront balcony, and private bath with jetted tub, granite countertops, travertine flooring, and walk-in shower. Also upstairs is Bedroom 3 with one set of bunk beds and one queen bed. Bedroom 4 is a King bedroom, with private balcony, TV and connecting bathroom. This bathroom is shared with the bunk room, and has a separated second vanity area with sink that can be closed off from the bathtub/shower. Bedroom 5 is downstairs and has a Queen bed, TV/DVD, private balcony and connecting bathroom. This bathroom has quartz countertop, slate flooring and a bath/shower.

The main entertaining area has two leather couches that convert to sofa beds if needed. There is a large 50' flat screen TV with stereo and DVD. A see through gas fireplace is a great addition for the cooler winter nights. The kitchen table seats 8 and the kitchen bar counter seats an additional 4. The kitchen is completely equipped with Dacor appliances: cooktop, double ovens, warming drawer and dishwasher.

A beachfront pool is just a short 50 yards away down the beach.

Why Karen Renner chose Laguna Beach

We built the Big Chill so our family could enjoy the beautiful, white, sugary sand beaches of Panama City. It is a perfect get-away from our hectic Atlanta schedules. We enjoy the variety of restaurants and shopping that are nearby and the sunsets are to die for!

I can not say enough about this beautiful beach front home and the host was extremely helpful. It was stocked with every thing we needed, had plenty of space and beautifully decorated. We would gladly return in the future.

Housekeeping did not do their job.

  • 4 of 5

I really appreciated the newly covered chairs and sofas. This was our second stay. The cleaning crew did not clean the kitchen, refrigerator, bathrooms, very well. Evidence of last occupants was very noticeable. I hope you are able to take care of this issue for the house is a great place.

Need a new rug in living area. it was also dirty. We would love to be able to grill food, but the grill is not sufficient for a large family.

This was by far the best house my family - eight adults and seven grandkids have ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

The Big Chill had all the comforts of home. We usually eat most of our meals at the house because we don t like wasting time in restaurant lines. The kitchen had everything we needed and especially had more than enough dinnerware and silverware. We have several cooks in our family and never once felt crowded in this beautiful big kitchen. The house is decorated in a crisp homey manner The bedrooms are all nice and big with ample closet space and large attached bathrooms. Loved the wood floors and all the big windows facing the water. Back porch was well used for just relaxing, having lunch or counting all the shells the kids found. Probably the cleanest house we ve ever had on vacation Maybe one of the best things about this house is it s location. Steps from the beautiful white sand which we all loved, 5-10 minutes from Pier Park and all the hustle and bustle of that area, minutes from great grocery stores and small restaurants but best of all very, very quiet once you get back to the house. Not all the lines of traffic we were used in previous places we have stayed. Highly recommend this place if u need to get away from a busy daily routine and want to relax and enjoy your family. We are all looking forward to coming back here again soon. And Karen is absolutely wonderful to deal with and assure that every aspect of your vacation will be perfect

Perfect vacation for big families with kids!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying here and it was perfect yet again. We had a family of 9 adults and 6 kids of varying ages from 18 to 5 years old. It's right on the beach with access to a pool. The house and view of the ocean is beautiful! Karen, the owner, is very easy to work with and very responsive!

We accidentally left a few items this go around and she was very helpful in working with the housekeeping service to mail it back. A quick drive to the Pier which has Dave & Busters, a small amusement park, shops, ice cream, restaurants etc. Go to Mike's Oyster Bar for dinner which is right up the road. We also rented kayaks and the company delivered it to the house. A lot of options!

In summary, this is a great rental! My entire family loves this home for vacation.

Family Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three generations(67 years old to 1) who vacation together every three years. This year it was July 8--15. What a joyful time we had. The Big Chill was perfect with the best beach we have ever experienced. Can't say enough about how helpful Karen was in responding to questions and with her suggestions for rentals. Definitely would rent that fire pit again--fun on the beach and beautiful view from the decks of the house. Grocery stores are very convenient. Comfortable beds, cozy furniture, and great parking. Loved our entire week.
