Property Description:


This large private home offers 4,200 square feet of luxury living in an exclusive gated community just seconds from the beach. Twelve foot ceilings are throughout the house adding an extra dimension. Includes 4 very large bedrooms, each with its own flat screen cable TV and BluRay/DVD. This Home has 6 Bathrooms, 3 of the Bathrooms with jetted Jacuzzi Bathtubs. Sleeps 10 - 12. There is an "in-law suite" with lockable privacy door providing extra room and privacy for families traveling together. There are two fully stocked granite-countertop kitchens, one of which is a stainless steel gourmet kitchen.

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.

Bedding for the Four bedrooms are as follows:

1 King Master Bedroom with 1 daybed / trundle w/ Jacuzzi Bath (2nd floor - Main House),

1 King Master Bedroom with juliet balcony and Jacuzzi Bath (2nd floor - Main House),

1 Queen Bedroom with Jacuzzi Bath (1st floor - Flex Room can be locked for access from Main House or In-Law Suite),

1 Queen Bedroom (shower only) in the private in-law suite.

Each of these four bedrooms has its own oversized attached private bath with double vanity sinks. There are two other bathrooms in the common/shared areas for a total of 6 bathrooms.

Extra Sleeping: There is a pullout queen sofa sleeper in the living area as an additional sleeping option.


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.

Five minutes to Pier Park, five minutes to Rosemary Beach. Grocery store 2-3 minutes away.

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!

Clean, well kept property. Plenty of room for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Very Spacious and Great Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

It was our first family vacation and it was wonderful. There were plenty of rooms for all of us. The beach access was just right across the street. We had a little problem with the toilets and Brian had Heidi, the housekeeper, come out to take care of it right away. Everyone had so much fun that we want to come back.

Spacious, beautiful home for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home! Plenty of bedrooms and most importantly for us, plenty of bathrooms. The home comes with 2 hot water tanks and 2 AC units to handle large groups as well as a very accommodating Frig/freezer in the main house. Also, tons of cabinet space in the kitchen which is well equipped for cooking and family dinners. The apt/mother n law suite has a pull out sofa bed and has an upstairs that has its own private master suite with large bath. This kitchen is also well equipped and has its own entry from the drive. The house is located in a very high-end private housing addition which is gated. The pool for LaValencia guests is just a short 4-5 minute walk away, then once at the pool you have a view of the ocean. The boardwalk from the pool will step you down into the sugary sands of the Gulf. These beaches are extremely clean, gorgeous blue water, random shells to be found, crab exploring at night and VERY family friendly. Brian and Tamara were always available when we had question before and during our stay. The listing is exact in its description but visiting it is much more FUN! Don't forget your umbrella, chairs and sunscreen!!! We plan to return!
