About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2), Huge deck

We are now taking reservations beginning in May of 2016 and 2017. The price per night is all inclusive: lodging, parking, cleaning, and taxes. There are no hidden fees. But since we are a single unit operation, we don't take walk-ins, so we ask for a non-refundable deposit of $100 by check, or paypal to confirm your reservation. We also ask for the balance on arrival to include a $100 damage fee which is returned to you on your day of departure. (We've never had to keep it. We've had wonderful guests)!

We think you will enjoy Finisterre, but we need to be clear that we do not take children of any age. The studio is set up for adults, and there are no safety features for children.

Finisterre is a private home with an upstair studio apartment (about 600 sq ft) right on the Gulf of Mexico. Features include a flat screen cable TV (HBO), wireless access, and DVD player, a queen bed, lots of storage and closet space, washer and dryer, control of A/C or heat, a kitchen with microwave, stove, large refrigerator (no running for ice!), dishes, towels, utensils, coffee maker, and lots more. There are double sinks in the vanity, and a great shower.
But the best part is the huge deck, and your own stair right to the beach and the gulf waters. You’ll have a huge private deck overlooking the beach, with bar chairs and a cushioned swing long enough to lie down on! You also have private access to the widow’s walk on the third level for another amazing view. There is even a grill on the deck for outdoor cooking if you like.

This property is conveniently located! Panama City Beach’s Pier Park, where you can find a whole village of shops, restaurants, and the Grand 16 theater, is only a 10 minute drive. But groceries (including a 24 hour Super Wal-Mart), souvenirs shops, clothing, restaurants, and bars are within close walking distance. Close by are Ripley’s Believe it Or Not, Wonder Works, golf courses, and Pineapple Willie’s restaurant on a pier.
SPECIAL NOTE: We are located only three blocks from the Boardwalk site of the Ironman event, and right in the middle of the action for Thunder Beach. La Vela, the largest nightclub in the States, is a short walk away by road or beach.

We have covered parking, and your entry is private.
Also you may book directly with owner.
Enjoy your vacation in a unique location (no elevators, no waiting on a desk clerk!) Just step out your door onto the beach!

Please remember to sign Guest Book located in your room as well as feel free to email us any photos you would like to share. We appreciate those who take time to write VRBO reviews for us. Thank you!
Minimum Age 25 to rent. Sorry, no pets, no children. No smoking indoors.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: My husband and I are from the Northwest, and worked overseas for the Dept of Defense for over 30 years. When we found this lovely spot, we couldn't wait to retire (which we did in '96).

Why the Owner Chose West Panama City Beach, Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
This beach is the best playground and has some of the most beautiful water we have ever seen, in spite of all our travels. The white sands are soft and easy to walk on, and the water is beautiful. You will love Finisterre.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Right on the gulf, with close shopping, groceries, restaurants, entertainment, night clubs, golf, and post office. Great views, and a great big porch swing that you can lie down and nap on!
