About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Vacation in SunDancer ! A Treasure for Families. We do not rent to parties of young adults.

Don't worry about crossing busy streets, our corner lot home is less than 50 Steps from the front door to the Boardwalk #7 leading to the beautiful white sands of PC Beach. There are no busy streets to cross, no highrises close by to add overly crowded beaches....What a Perfect Place for Families.

We keep our home vibrant, new, and comfortable for our guests because we have chosen to rent to families. In special cases, we have welcomed small groups of older, mature adults who love and respect the area also.

Sunlight streams into the Living/Dining/Kitchen areas on the !st floor of this beautiful colorful 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home, located on the corner of Gulf Drive and Hurt St.

This bright and cheerful living room area with 10' ceilings, gas fireplace is highlighted by a stunningly decorated seating area for great conversations, or viewing the latest movies on the 40' flat screen TV. Off the living room in the spacious dining table which seats 8 with extra seating at the breakfast bar in the large, fully equipped kitchen. Travertine floors, black granite counters, windows everywhere, multiple paintings and beach paraphernalia all give extra detail to the colorful surroundings and decor in each room.

Rounding out the 1st floor is the newly decorated Queen Bedroom and Bath with it's own TV and spacious closet. This delightful room opens onto the private small pool for your enjoyment on days you just want to relax on the back patio lounge chairs. There is a gas grill poolside for leisure cooking outdoors if you desire.

A Washer/Dryer and storage area round out the first floor rooms. You'll find extra Boogie Boards, beach toys, chairs, and towels for your use.

A side door opens to another off street parking space. So lot's of cars, and boats can be accommodated at this corner lot at Hurt St and Gulf Dr.

Hardwood steps lead upstairs. When you open the 2nd floor Master Bedroom balcony door, you can see and hear the waves break on the Gulf shore. Take a moment and enjoy the chairs placed there to help you enjoy the views. The Master Bath includes a walk-in shower, separate water closet, and a jetted tub.

The Kids Bunk room and Bath give plenty of privacy and kid friendly space to 4 bunk and 2 trundle beds. (porta-crib available)

WiFi is available at the Computer desk in the spacious Hallway.

The colorful starfish sofas and chair are the highlights of the 3rd floor great bonus room. Again dramatic 10' ceilings, colorful paintings, lot's of natural light from the many windows, and a 62' TV entertainment center complete with DVDs and VCR tapes, books, games and puzzles make this a perfect place for the family to enjoy together. A wet bar, mini fridge and 1'2 bath make this a truly great 4th bedroom and/or bonus room.

From the 3rd story deck, experience the spectacular sunrises and sunsets surrounded by Gulf sounds and views.

Location, Location ! We are located in a quiet community yet within easy access to Panama City Beaches main attractions, and numerous amusement parks, nightlife and many other special events.

About Janelle Tencza

We are currently turning over our Hunters Christmas Tree Farm family business to our children. We enjoy our four daughters and their families numbering 15 grandchildren. They also are so excited to be able to spend time at PCB. Our home shows signs of a retired Navy and Delta Airline pilot and a teacher/dancer/choreographer who married in the 60's.

Janelle Tencza purchased this house in 2011

Why Janelle Tencza chose Panama City Beach Area

When it came time to purchase beach property there was no other place that we wanted to buy than this corner lot at Hurt and Gulf. We find it difficult to decide whether to drive in from our home in Milton, Georgia or to fly into the new international PCB airport.

This location and home is perfect for our wish to create a place where we could sit and talk, read and study, eat and sleep, walk and ride, and get away from it all or be right in the middle of exciting experiences. This home is the perfect place in which to create a light and airy and comfortable beach home. Come and enjoy a 'SunDancer' vacation.

What makes this house unique

On the quiet East end of Panama City Beach, minutes from the famous St. Andrews Park, just steps away from the white sugary beach and sounds of waves hitting the sand and surrounded by dancing Sunlight is our home away from home. A great place to unwind, relax, and enjoy family. Great Gulf Views from our upper floors. Spectacular panoramic sunsets. Location, Location, It Works !!!

SUNDANCER..Spectacular Location -- Steps Away from Sugary White Sand
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a perfect location. The lot across the street that is ocean front is empty so you have an unobstructed view of the beach from all floors. Schooner's restaurant is walking distance and it's only a few minutes from St. Andrew's national park (amazing beach for families). The house is clean and well equipped with kitchen utensils, beach towels, lots of beach toys and basic supplies. There were only two beach chairs so if you have a larger group then you should bring some additional chairs. The pool is perfect for small groups, we had 2 adults and 2 kids ages 7 and 5. We had a minor issue with a TV not working and the owner was very responsive in getting it fixed. If we ever return to PCB we would definitely rent this house again.

Luxury Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Absoluty one of the best weeks spent at PCB. The pictures do not do it justice. The location was perfect with the beach access less than 30 ft from the front door. There were 4 adults, 2 five year old twin boys and three dogs. We had plenty of room and the boys loved having their own room on the third floor. The pool was an added bonus so we could sit out back while the boys swam. Convenient location on the east end of Thomas Drive. Beautifully decorated and plenty of seating in the living room for a large group. We will definitely be renting this house again in the future. The managing property company, Southern Vacation Rentals was wonderful. The have an app that was sent to our iphone with the information we needed which allowed us to go directly to the house. Did not have to go to an off site to check in and out. We were also able to check out electronically. Very convenient. All we had to do was get groceries. Everything furnished was more than adequate.

We need to correct your review though, as our daughter Janelle handled your reservation and rental. We manage Sundancer ourselves through You were great guests and left our home in beautiful condition, Thank you.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We live in Texas and meet our friends from St. Louis for vacation in Florida every year. Your home is by far the most convenient to the beach and best arrangement for 2 families with 4 kids! The upstairs game room was amazing for the kids! Beautiful home, beach and sunsets! Thank you! We will be back!

Great 90th, NCAAs and Spring Break!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 4 day weekend - part spring break for the kids, part days off to watch our Syracuse and Michigan teams make a run in the tourney, part surprise 90th birthday for our grandmother. The house was perfect as a home base for all to gather, hang out, eat, and get to the beautiful beach right across the street. The owner was responsive, the place clean, and location ideally located away from big high-rises so the beach and neighborhood was quiet. Only thing that could possibly have made the stay better would be if the pool were heated (or had a hot tub). Otherwise, we could not have asked for more.

Owner's Response: So glad your family loved our home. We have it ready for families with children with their own bunk-room plus trundles. I know that this year during Spring Break the weather was much cooler and colder than usual. In years past it was warmer and past renters were happy with the pool water temperature. We will certainly take your suggestion under consideration as weather has become so unpredictable. Thanks again for your kind words. We love staying in Sundancer also !!

Beautiful Beach Home!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter's softball team rented this home while in PCB for the World Series. It is very clean and well maintained. The pictures are extemely accurate. The third floor deck provides a great view of the gulf which is literally just steps away. This home is conveniently located, within walking distance to Schooners and just a short drive to Pier Park. Having the pool was a huge plus for us! The owners are lovely and easy to work with. We will definitely return next summer! Highly recommend!!

We appreciated your understanding and help. We look forward to your return next year. Good luck to the girls!!
