About Angie Wiggins

This property is owned by four Whatley siblings, children of the late Janie G. Whatley, original owner of the house. We all grew up in Dothan, AL and have been beach goers all of our lives. We fell in love with the Thomas Drive area many years ago, away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip, but only a short drive from many of the beach attractions. The uncrowded beach here is a great plus for families wanting to enjoy peace and serenity but be close enough to enjoy top-notch restaurants, St. Andrews Park, marinas and amusement parks.

Angie Wiggins purchased this house in 1996

Why Angie Wiggins chose Crescent Beach

We rented in this area and others up and down the beach before we bought any property. We decided this was the spot for us.

What makes this house unique

The original house was destroyed by Hurricane Opal and we rebuilt in 1996. We updated the house in 2013 with a new metal roof, new doors, outside paint and inside furnishings.

The perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

Has everything you need- great kitchen, beautiful view of the ocean, lots of beach toys, and close by to everything.

The only negative thing is the TV cable. Was always acting up.

This was our 2nd time staying at the house. We love the updates made to the house and the location is perfect. The tropical storm tried to put a damper on our week but we just fixed a glass of wine, sat under the covered deck and enjoyed the crashing waves. We have 6 grandchildren (3 boys & 3 girls) ages 6 to 18 and I was a little nervous about putting them all in the bunk room but it worked out perfectly. The only suggestion I would have would be maybe not so many dishes and pots and pans. We love to cook and grill at the beach but there was no room to put groceries. The other suggestion would be a queen bed in the twin bedroom. Ended up talking with one of the owners the day we left and he couldn't have been a nicer or friendly gentleman to talk to. This is definitely my go to house when heading to the west coast(we usually rotate east and west coast). So much to do in that area but when you are at the beach house it's like you have your own little private spot. This one is a keeper!!!!

clean beach house with great deck on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Initially there was some trouble physically entering the house as the password provided for the front door was incorrect but the house was beautiful, clean, and right on the beach. Very spacious with a large covered deck. Large kitchen with a large dining table. We would consider staying here again next time we vacation PCB.

Ideal beach locations

  • 5 of 5

Sitting on the deck while watching the ever-changing sea, the gulls and sand pipers, and then stepping from the house onto the white sands make for an idyllic, re-storative visit. The house is very comfortable with the latest appliances and plenty of beach toys.

Beautiful home right on the water!! What more could one need?! Definitely hope to return again!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. The house was fabulous minus a stink in the refrigerator. We assumed it was from the previous renter. To walk right off the porch and be on the beach was amazing! I hope we are able to visit again next year.
