About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps up to 6 adults and 4 kids). DOG FRIENDLY

Why book a noisy, crowded condo with elevators and parking garages? You will love this amazing roomy house where you can enjoy the stunning private tropical pool, relax in the gulf breeze on the huge wrap-around covered veranda and take a walk or sun on the breath-taking PRIVATE Gulf beach just a short two-block walk away. Best location -- just 1 mile from Pier Park, the fabulous new shopping, entertainment and dining complex everyone is talking about. And the house is just 2 miles from Frank Brown Park.

This four bedroom, two and a half bath house sleeps up to 6 adults and 4 kids. Two bedrooms have king beds, one bedroom has two sets of bunk beds (4 twins) and the 4th is outfitted with day-bed/trundle that pops-up to create another king-size bed or 2 twins.

Entire house has been tastefully decorated with new furniture and furnishings. It has a wo-car garage, washer and dryer, microwave, FREE WIFI, cable TV, smart Blu-Ray DVD and 5 TV's--in great room and in all bedrooms. Take a bike ride at no additional cost. There are 9 well-used bikes in a variety of sizes in garage for your use.

Have a great vacation and treat yourself to luxury without ''on-the-beach'' prices!

Take a look at our beach!!: The Florida Panhandle boasts the most beautiful white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters in the whole USA, and our 1/2 mile private section of the beach is the best. Delight in clear, gulf water, warming sun and fabulous, unforgettable sunsets. This beach cannot be topped. And just a mile east or a mile west puts you at either of the two new fishing piers. Catch your own dinner! How fun!

Please join us and see for yourself.

About Owner


Welcome to our house in the Bid-A-Wee area of Panama City Beach, FL. We hope you love it as much as we do. We have personally decorated and continue to lovingly maintain and update the property hoping to enhance your vacation and entice you to choose our house for your vacation stay again and again.

Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why Owner chose Panama City Beach

1. We have a beautiful pool in the back yard! And it is just for you.

2. Our subdivision is directly across the street from the beach. Lucky for us and equally lucky for our you!! Homeowners in Bid-A-Wee actually own the beach, and it's a half-mile of pure white beach -- no buildings, no clutter. It's private and it just happens to be one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the USA. Even better, it's only a 2-block walk with sidewalks from our house to the beach! As guests in our house, you will be given access information.

3. Plus we take great pride in making sure the house offers everything our guests need in the way of comfort and convenience. Kitchen is totally updated with granite counter tops and tile back splash. The washer and dryer are new.

4. We offer free WIFI and have cable TV with TV's in every room and there's a big flat screen TV with Blue Ray DVR in the great room.

5. Weekly lawn and pool service insures everything outside looks beautiful and well-kept through your stay.

What makes this house unique

It's just a short walk to the beach via sidewalks on Nautilus Road.

And the pool in the backyard means you'll enjoy complete privacy while staying with us.

If you like shopping and dining, our house is located just a couple of miles from Pier Park. Be sure to check out the boutiques, restaurants, and free, live music presented on many evenings during the summer. There's an outdoor amusement park there with thrill rides for the kiddies and the brave, and everyone loves Dave And Busters there as well!! So much to do!

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on site on January 30, 2018 from Toronto, Canada.

It is exactly as advertised. It is about 2 blocks from beach, lovely neighbourhood. This was very important to us as we have a large dog who we have to walk numerous times a day. We were so happy that we chose a property off the main front beach road due to traffic and noise. The property was very clean and everything we needed and wanted was on hand. The pool was awesome and we were in it by mid February. It is wonderful to have both a huge deck on front of property to watch sun go down and the privacy of our own oasis in the backyard. We had so much space we only used a portion of the house. Would be wonderful if having guests.

We quickly developed a routine of walking dog in neighbourhood, followed up by going to dog beach for a stroll and onto Pier Park outdoor mall for a stroll through the stores. This is very dog friendly.

Our property was literally 2 minutes from golf which we enjoyed playing in the afternoon.

We hope to come back again next year as the privacy and area we loved.

The owner Janie is awesome to deal with and would totally recommend to friends.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our puppy really enjoyed our stay. The house is very confortable, , very clean, furnish with taste. Cathedral ceiling is a big plus! Too cold for the pool! But the balcony is great, lots of room. The owners very nice and accommodating. The area is nice, close to the beach and golf course 5 minutes away. Plenty of bicycles, to stay in shape and visit!

Shower has good pressure, bath is lovely (jet stream)! Beds A1.

So we highly recommend it! But not in November 2018 because we will be there, next year!

House was beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

House was great, short walk to the beach. Stocked with everything you could possibly need. Toys for pool and beach, cooking supplies, blankets pillows, etc. My only complaint would be not enough towels supplied. We had 8 adults and only received 7 towels. Had to do laundry daily or use beach towels for showering.

Owner's Response: Hello DeAnna, I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay in our beach house! I apologize for the shortage of bath linens for your group. This is very disappointing to hear. I have contacted our local management company who will make sure that does not happen again . Hope to host you again in the future! Janie

Clean, easy beach access, nice inground pool. Pet Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of June 24th. The house was very nice with a great front porch with tree coverage to help keep it cool. The house was nice and clean. Beach access is about a block away. Easy to load stuff up into the truck and drive to the beach access. Was able to park right next to the gate which is private access. So hardly anybody on the beach. Much better than the overcrowded beaches we've stayed at in the past. Owner is great to allow us to have our multiple dogs travel and stay with us. We wouldn't travel if they had to be boarded. So this was a great opportunity. We have stayed here once before 2 years ago, and couldn't travel last year. We will definitely use this property again when traveling to Panama City Beach.

Great house with private pool and beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and a few friends rented this house for 2 weeks. We found the house very clean and welcoming. The kids loved the bunk bed room with its crazy paint job and isolation from the adults upstairs. The pool got a lot of use and there was an outside shower to rinse of the sand when we came back from the beach. Oh and the beach has gates so that only residents and guests are on the private beach. Great place and we hope to come back next year

Beautiful, private Bid-a-Wee Beach
Car: recommended

The house is located on the western edge of Panama City Beach. It offers privacy, tropical backyard pool and easy access to the beach, bars, restaurants, and amusements (go-karts, arcade, zip-line, dune buggy tracks, bungy jumps and more). Shop the boutiques in Pier Park. While you are there, see a movie at the Grand Theatre, try the rides at the amusement park and visit the Famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge for great live music. Have a burger at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. Rent a rod & reel and fish from the pier across the street and catch fresh fish for dinner -- so much to do!

Other Activities: Parasailing, Shopping, Shelling
