About David Sample -Families Only No Rentals Under 25- Locally Owned and Self Managed

Hello,

We are David and Lisa Sample. Lisa and I are local Realtors here in Panama City Beach. We have a Real Estate sales office located just down the street at Celadon Beach Resort. We liked the area so much we move here in 2005 and became full time residents. We are committed to providing the best vacation spots around with our personally owned and operated properties.

David Sample -Families Only No Rentals Under 25- Locally Owned and Self Managed purchased this house in 2013

Why David Sample -Families Only No Rentals Under 25- Locally Owned and Self Managed chose Laguna Beach Estates

We named this house the 'Oleander Too' beacuse of the tremendous success of our 'Oleander Cottage' (VRBO #816753 & 427607) has had just 5 doors away. Our guests have enjoyed the quiet West End of Panama City Beach (Laguna Beach) for years now. With perfect reviews and a full calendar we thought it was time to do something else in the neighborhood. We took what we have learned from the Oleander Cottage and our other condos in the area and poured it all into one. We completely renovated an existing structure to become what we think will be the perfect place for families to make memories for years to come. We completely stripped the inside and outside and built it back with you in mind!

What makes this house unique

On the outside you will enjoy our New Huge Deck. There's enough room to enjoy the sun and the view. It's hard to capture the feel of the breeze in your face and the view in a photograph but it's nice. Florida is flat but we are on a bit of high ground. The deck has a 2nd story view across the yards and metal rooftops of the neighboring houses out to the shimmering waters of The Gulf of Mexico. It's a quiet place to Relax...

Inside the pictures tell the tale of a beautifully decorated beach house. We've had many families tell us that on vacation their younger kids sleep in the room with them so we've built a custom built set of bunk beds in one of the King bedrooms. There's no need to use blow up mattresses or crunch together on your vacation... enjoy the King Bed. If kids aren't an issue then it's extra room to store luggage etc...

Everything from beds to forks is NEW. This is a nice house...

Would work for one family

  • 2 of 5

This rental would be great for one family but didn’t work for two. One of the bedrooms had built-in bunk beds instead of a closet. There was nowhere to put clothes or suitcases. We had to live out of our suitcase and for a week that isn’t practical. Also, wasn’t thrilled we had to put sheets over furniture to use but I guess that made the couches clean to sit on. We weren’t able to get wi-fi but 2 out of 7 days and that caused some issues. The response from owners was lax concerning that but maybe that would not be important to some as it was to us. The main TV wasn’t user friendly. Had to use 2 remotes to use and wasn’t set up for hi-def channels. My grandson found candy wrappers and candy in the beds of bunk room. The location was fine and the rental worked out ok other then all that. We would not stay there again.

Owner's Response: 99.9% of our guests are a true joy. But....every 2-3 years we get "that guest". The one that does not want to be happy or enjoy a vacation with family. Your were that guest. Your review is accurate on several points.... #1 -There are 2 remotes needed to operate the living room TV. One for the Smart TV and one for the Hi-Def expanded cabe that we provide. There are also detailed instructions provided for those less tech-savy, like me:-). I suppose you chose not to read that section that told the channel range for hi-def. Most guests love the wide range of entertainment options available while away from home. #2- We do provide slip covers as a courtesy to families traveling with small children. We expect our upholstery to maintain it's perfect condition , but also want parents to enjoy a relaxing week, not worrying about every little stick finger and sandy toe. Most guests LOVE the attention to detail we provide to allow for a great week at the beach. -#3 We have excellent wi-fi service. However... you do have to use the CORRECT password for it to work as it is a secured connection. The password is provided on the laminated instruction sheet on the kitchen counter. If you chose to use one other that the one provided, it is not surprising that it did not work. As far as a lax response....we spoke numerous times about the wi-fi connection, and when you finally used the correct password, it worked, then...you hung up on me. You are also correct on one final point. You will never stay here again.

Tropical and Beachy

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful. The decor was very beachy just the way we like it. We enjoyed coffee on the deck every morning. The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet. Our family really enjoyed our stay. It is very close to the beach. And we loved the cornhole game downstairs. Thanks so much for such a beautiful place to stay!! Hope to visit it again!!

By far the most beautiful place that I have booked

  • 5 of 5

Mr. & Mrs. Sample we appreciate your hospitality. We all enjoyed staying in this beautiful cottage. This by far is the best cottage that we have stayed in. It had all the amenities that a person needs. We really are blessed for you all to have invited us to church, it sat the whole mood for the rest of the stay. It was a blessing that we booked from Godly people. May God continue to bless you and your family. Thanks again

the home was beautiful and perfectly decorated for a beach vacation. Great amenities, all we needed

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and David were very welcoming and helpful in arranging our family beach vacation. The home was gorgeous, comfortable beds, great layout. Just a super short walk to the beach which was beyond our expectations of powder white sand and the ocean was five shades of blue and green. Loved the privacy of the beach yet grocery store was only a few minutes away and the pier with restaurants about 10 minutes away. Definitely want to come back again next summer !!

The house is everything you need for a great beach trip. Lisa and David were the epitome of gracious hosts and checked in to make sure we had a wonderful stay. The beds are comfy, the hot water lasted thru 6 showers, the view is great...it made us want to stay forever! Definitely will be coming back ASAP!
