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 Panama City Beach Area

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.

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this beach house! I have nothing but great things to say about this place. The location is amazing and right across from the beach. The loft allowed for us to watch the dolphins on multiple occasions and to watch the beautiful sunsets! This house has everything you need and the kitchen was fully equipped. The pool was a lifesaver when we got a little too warm at the beach. We were in walking distance to a really great local restaurant and beach bar. Extremely close to all of what Panama City beach has to offer! In addition, there were also 2 grocery stores about a mile or two away! Thank you so much for sharing your beach house, Christy! We would love to stay here again in the future!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight loved this house. This was our first experience renting a house. Our growing family needed space and this house was perfect. Spacious rooms, well-equipped kitchen, and easy access to the beach. There are several restaurants within walking distance. Owner was very helpful throughout the process. Thanks Christy!

Amazing home and location!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had at the Thaggard home. This absolutely beautiful and emaculately maintained home is all you need for a family vacation. Our favorite place...and the ONLY place we stay when we visit Panama City every year!! Thank you for sharing your home with us. If I could rate this with more stars, I would. Perfect vacation rental.

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.
