About Christy

Our family resides in the North GA area and have always loved traveling to PCB, when our kids schedule allows.

Christy purchased this house in 2011

Why Christy chose Lower Grand Lagoon

Before my husband and I met, we had always traveled to the PCB area to vacation. When we had kids we could not think of a better place to begin taking beach vacations with our kids. When it came time to purchase a beach property there was no other place that we wanted to buy.

What makes this house unique

Unlike many of the advertised 'gulfviews, within steps' to the beach properties, we are truly just steps to the white sands. Just across a very small street, Gulf Dr. No busy streets to cross to have beach access. Along with easy access, you can hear the waves crash from the many decks to view from.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. It is beautifully decorated and very spacious. Making plans for next year.

We were VERY disappointed as it did NOT look like the pictures.

FIRST, main floor and bedrooms were fine. SECOND, the outdoor furniture. WOW....VERY DISAPPOINTING. We were not able to enjoy the 3rd floor porch or around the pool as there was NO decent furniture to sit on. The table on the 3rd floor patio was absolutely disgusting, VERY rusted and both chairs were broke. The lounger on 3rd floor had no cushion and the cushion that was there was totally tore apart and the stuffing coming out. THIRD - Washer and Dryer - one minute it worked, next didn't even dry the clothes. FOURTH - we found 6 VERY large cockroaches.

We were there for 7 days and paid a lot of money. We thought when we talked to the owner we may get some kind of a refund......

Anxious to go back to Panama City,FL but will NOT be staying at 362177.

Owner's Response: My apologies that you were not satisfied with your stay in our beach home. I have reviewed the pictures online and the only discrepancies that I see are we have a newer sofa in the living room and 1 less lounger on the top deck so I also apologize that somehow the pictures were misleading. I am aware that the patio furniture is needing to be replaced , as it apparently took a beating during the off season. We will be replacing the patio furniture on our next visit. I was not aware of any issues with the washer/dryer and this is the 1st I have heard about any such issues so that will be looked at to make sure they are in top working condition. I again apologize for the bugs that were seen in the home. We do have a pest control service and unfortunately these types of bugs are not unusual in FL homes but we will try to make sure that our service technician is diligent with the service at the home. I do wish that I would of been contacted by someone during the stay regarding any of these issues so I could of possibly resolved them and made for a more memorable stay. The only contact I had with the booking renter, Ms. Kraft, was about a week after their stay and I initiated that call regarding another issue. I was made aware of the patio furniture and the bugs at that time but it was not addressed as being a very large issue by the renter, nor was any type of refund requested. I have always had 100% positive feedback and made sure my guests were happy during their stays. Again, my deepest apologies that you were not satisfied with your stay.

Group of 10

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the home. Lots of space for 5 adults and 5 kids. We cooked most meals in the home and had game night every night. Great location for enjoying the beach. Would like a pizza pan and hand mixer. We made due and it all worked out.

I would like to see the sofa downstairs and the futon upstairs updated, as well as the stained carpet. We encountered very minor issues-blown outside lights, food under sofa cushions. Overall- great trip and acceptable home conditions. Rental property is hard to keep looking brand new, this home looked good and was comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am glad that your group enjoyed your stay at Seaside Serenity. Your group was the last one of the season and now we are in motion to replace the loft carpet with hardwood flooring and changing the flooring in the bedrooms also. The sofa is being changed and the futon is being removed. I will make sure that we add a hand mixer and pizza pan for future guests to enjoy. We take great pride in keeping our home clean and up to date. Hope to have you stay with us in the future.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family beach vacation! Christy was great to work with in getting everything booked & the property was very clean. We had 11 people with us and was very comfortable. The house had everything you can possible need and then some. I usually have to go get a new pan or spatulas, etc. but not here. All kitchen utensils were supplied, clean and trusted to use if needed. This felt like a home & we tried our best to take care of it as if it was our own. Thank you for making our family beach vacation one we will remember for years to come! We hopefully look forward to being back next year! Oh, and let's not forget that you are only a few steps from one of the best local restaurants, Schooners, which we had visited all 3 years and was able to walk to it and loved it! The beach is so close and the road has very little traffic as people constantly are walking and taking in the sites! Love this home!!!!

Best house on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house was by far the best place we've ever stayed at PCB! There were three families (6 adults and 3 children) so this 3 bedroom/3 bath house with the loft area for the kids was perfect for us. Every bedroom had its own bathroom and the loft had a half bath which was very nice as well. The house was beautifully decorated, spacious and very clean. The pictures of this house is exactly how it looks in real life! The beach access was directly across the street which was very convenient. We also enjoyed spending time on the roof deck at night. The owners were also very nice and easy to contact with any questions we had. We will defiinitely stay at this house again!!

Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation spot for a group of 5 adults and 4 teenagers.

The third floor loft with a half bath and deck area was the perfect place for the teenagers to have their own space.

It was also nice that every bedroom had an attached bath.

It is in a very quiet neighborhood with not much traffic. That made walking to the beach or one of the local restaurants or a souvenir shop very easy.

The walk to the beach was basically just crossing the street.

We would definitely go again!
