This home is close to everything. There are three fantastic grocery stores within minutes, there are dozens of restaurants and shops nearby (some within walking distance). And best yet, it is LESS THAN A ONE MINUTE WALK TO THE BEACH.

WHY WE LOVE THIS HOUSE: Our favorite part of this beautiful house is the 3rd floor "Eagle's Nest" which offers panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding treetops. The Eagles Nest is stocked with a game table, wet bar, ice maker, flatscreen cable TV and many board games to choose from. The Nest also has a 150 square foot outdoor covered patio with 8 chairs and three tables, perfect for watching the sunset over the ocean after a long day at the beach.
The home is situated in the gated La Valencia private community on Front Beach Road. It's a safe and quiet community with a tennis court as the centerpiece, so bring your racquets. La Valencia offers its own gated private beach access with clean bathrooms and a pool exclusively for La Valencia guests.

About Brian and Tamara Smith
We are a family of five adventurers from Colorado - this home gives us a chance to get to the coast and enjoy some beach time!
Brian and Tamara Smith purchased this House in 2011
Why Brian and Tamara Smith chose Laguna Beach
The beaches in Panama City Beach are like no other that we've come across - beautiful stretches of white sand. This home is a wonderful place for family reunions!
What makes this House unique
We have three young children, and what is most appealing is the cleanliness, privacy and safety of La Valencia. The kids feel completely safe riding their scooters around the circle, walking 20 yards over to the tennis court, or searching for lizards among the palm trees and sand. Not to mention, the beach and private pool are incredible!

Fantastic place and great location
We had two families there with all ages from teenagers to a 7 year old. Small walk to the beach, the house is amazing!! We loved it. Everyone had their own little private section. We had a blast and were able to request an additional day! It was a blast.. thank you, The Shaffer’s!
We wanted a place for my wife, son and 2 other couples for a get away. It was during spring break so we were worried about finding something close to the attractions, but not too noisy. The property fit the bill exactly. It is in a gated neighborhood where it seems everyone knew everyone (In a good way). The owners were great with communicating the details of the property and what we needed to know for the stay. There was plenty of parking and room for everyone to stretch out. The house was appointed much better than other properties we have rented in the past. This included dishes, towels and other amenities. Everything seemed to be updated and high end including the appliances. The jewel for us the the 3rd floor sitting area which we used each night to recap the days activities and look out over the Gulf. The beach and pool are a short walk away. There is a closer pool, however it was reserved for "owners" only. The pool overlooking the ocean was great and private. However it was not heated, so it was a little cool when you first get in. Overall I recommend this property to others and would consider renting again on our next trip to PCB.
Fantastic Beach Home
The home is beautiful, in a great location, and very spacious. We enjoyed watching the sunset each night from the top floor, and we definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a family/friend getaway.
Very Nice. Really enjoyed it.
Clean, well kept property. Plenty of room for the whole family.
Less than a block from the pool and beach. Centrally located to Pier Park and restaurants. Close grocery stores for the nights you want to cook at home. Well stocked kitchens and large bedrooms. Dining table seats 8 comfortably. Best feature is the outside roof top patio. We had a breeze every night. I would suggest bring your own pillows as theirs were not comfortable. Overall great stay.
This house was great! Very comfortable for my family of 11. We didn't know there were 2 separate staircases...1 was for a bedroom off the MIL suite and the other was for 2 more bedrooms and the Eagles Nest but it worked out just fine. We also never knew we needed 2 kitchens until we had the pleasure of 2. Herding the kids wasn't as challenging as usual at mealtime. An ice machine in the large kitchen was the best thing ever!! We used this ice for our drinks and small ice chests. The water was good and I'm very particular about the water I drink.The downstairs bedroom (where I stayed) didn't have a closet but the owner said he would add a chifforobe for hanging clothes. Ample drawer space in bedroom dresser and bathroom vanity though. The house was neat and clean with travertine flooring throughout. Kitchens were stocked with everything I could imagine. The location was great...nice and quite. The walk to the beach carrying beach gear was a bit far for someone with issues but we parked near the entry gate and walked from there. A golf cart would help tremendously and there is plenty of parking at the house for a cart trailer and vehicles. Thanks for providing a great house!
