Vacation Description

We also own the house that is right beside Don't Worry, Be Happy called Pinch Me, I'm Dreaming 2 (VRBO #381443). The two houses can be rented together for large groups up to 16 people.

'Don't Worry, Be Happy' is a pet friendly (additional fee) home located just 1000 ft away from the beautiful white sands of Panama City Beach. Our home is just a short walk to the gorgeous Emerald Coast Beaches or you can take our golf cart (added fee) to the beach or for a drive around the neighborhood! The backyard is fenced in for your pet.

Step out the back door into your own private paradise. The fully fenced in back yard has a private pool that features a large deck so you can get plenty of sun laying by the pool. There is also a sunshelf in the pool that is made to put two chairs in the pool along with a beach umbrella between them.

Don't Worry, Be Happy is a 4BR/2BA beach home that has been furnished with those special extras that will make your vacation more relaxing. The 39” LED Flat screen TV in the Living Room will allow you to catch the game or watch a movie. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need, whether you just want to brew an excellent cup of coffee or prepare a full meal for everyone in the house.

The Master Bedroom features a King size bed and a private bath room with a walk in closet. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed with the guest bathroom just outside the door. There is a 3rd bedroom with a twin bed and the 4th bedroom has a bunk bed. The Living Room has a sleeper sofa.

The laundry room features a full size washer and dryer.

Don't Worry, Be Happy has a TV with Cable in both the Master bedroom and the Queen bedroom in addition to the 39” Flat Screen with DVD player in the Living Room. There is an AM/FM radio in the kitchen. We keep a golf cart at the house for our guests to take to the beach or just go for a pleasant ride through the neighborhood (additional fee).

There are plenty of golfing opportunities within a few miles of our home. Rosemary Beach is about a 10 minute drive away and offers clay court tennis weekly memberships or lessons. Pier Park is about a 10 minute drive away.

Jim and Melissa have furnished this duplex with the comfort and enjoyment for their guests in mind. Bring your clothes, and a trip to grocery store is all you need to do. Having the golf cart available was fabulous. A short walk or ride to the beach! I recommend this place for a great stress free vacation. Would stay here again and again!

                                                              It was great meeting you! I'm glad your family enjoyed their stay and I hope you come back to Don't Worry, Be Happy. Thank you!

                                                              Cali and Sissy's Vacation at Don't Worry Be Happy!

                                                              First let me say that Cali and Sissy are our fur babies and we tend to pattern our vacations towards their needs. This property certainly did! They loved the backyard and loved being with us at the pool.

                                                              The house is exactly like it is pictured in VRBO! The pool was sparkling clean. We enjoyed spending time at the pool, this is our first rental with a pool and loved it. The place was very clean and tidy, loved the beach motif. A very homey feel to the whole house. We rented the golf cart too, just a short (1 minute) ride to the beach. We recommend renting the golf cart with the house, so much fun. We also used Dillion's for renting chairs and an umbrella on the beach (the number is on the refrigerator), for $30 a day, a bargain!

                                                              Overall, our experience was great. We even called Jim before we left because of the hurricane that had hit Florida the week before. He was very responsive and gracious to answer all our questions. The whole process was very easy.

                                                              If you are looking for a quite, spacious, and relaxing place to get away from the crowd, but still be within a short distance of restaurants and shopping, this is your place!

                                                              From Cali, Sissy, Dennis and Julie Williams - Mansfield, TX -Stayed the week of Sept 18, 2017 - Thank you Jim
