About Chris Thorsby

I was born, raised, and currently reside in Michigan. For the past twenty-two years, my family and I have numerous fond memories spent on the beach and at the townhouse. All winter we counted the days until Spring Break in Panama City Beach. We played catch with the football and baseball on the beach while watching our fishing poles anchored in the sand. After dark, we would go into PCB for all the tourist traps like race cars, batting cages and of course putt-putt golf. My wife and daughter enjoyed the shopping in PCB and Destin. The deep sea fishing trips were very memorable and rewarding. I hope your family enjoys the 'Vision of Paradise' as much as ours has.

Chris Thorsby purchased this townhome in 1992

Why Chris Thorsby chose Florida

My wife and I came down to PCB to visit her parents while they wintered just down the road from our townhouse. While walking the beach shore, we noticed a townhouse was listed for sale. After falling in love with the panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico from the top deck, we decided to purchase and remodel it. The white sands are breath taking and the shoreline changes every year. The color of the ocean can change daily. During certain times of the year you can watch an amazing sunrise and sunset over the ocean on the same day. This area maybe the last of old Florida with sand dunes, sea oats and then the beach leading to the sea shore.

What makes this townhome unique

On a busy holiday week, you may be the only group on the beach for 500 yards each way. Watch the dolphins swim by from the top deck off the master bedroom. Surf fish down by the old pier out front of the unit. Have lunch on the lower deck while enjoying the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves hitting the shore. This is truly paradise.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Such an amazing & quiet place. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back. We brought our two dogs with us, they also loved it. I enjoyed the quiet beach but quick access to the amenities of PCB. I HIGHLY recommend this place and have told all my family & friends about it. Chris was a pleasure to work with. I can't say enough about this place!

There was a lil bit of construction right in front of our condo but construction but when you have such an amazing place, who cares!!!

Lovely beach ...

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed at Inlet Beach before and love the area so when we saw this place on VRBO we had to try it. Great little house, nicely isolated and private and beautiful beach. The house has everything you need and is very comfortable. The view from the upper balcony is marvelous. One of the nicest attractions is The Terrace restaurant across the highway.

The only caveat is the beach access. Picture #6 leads you to believe the walkway to the beach is right at the side of the unit. It is not. That has to be an old picture. The actual beach access is at the end of the street and involves quite a distance and lots of steps. For older adults or those with ankle, knee or arthritis problems, beware.

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

MY FRIEND AND I AND OUR DOGS TRAVEL ALL OVER AND ONE OF THOSE TRIPS IS ALWAYS RENTING A BEACH HOUSE SOMEWHERE TO CELEBRATE OUR BIRTHDAYS ( ONE DAY APART). THIS YEAR WE CHOSE "VISIONS OF PARADISE" IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PERFECT! tHE HOUSE WAS SO WELL DONE NOT OVERLY BEACHY-JUST ENOUGH..WONDERFUL ARTWORK!! COMFORTABLE, PRETTY, WELL-EQUIPPED.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST PART WERE THE BALCONIES. OUTSIDE LIVING ROOM A SPACIOUS COVERED DECK LOOKING OUT AT THE DUNES AND GULF. UPSTAIRS OUTSIDE MASTER WAS A SPACIOUS UNCOVERED BALCONY WITH COMFORTABLE CHAISES AND UMBRELLAS. GREAT FOR SUNNING AND WATCHING SUNSETS, SUNRISES AND THE FULL MOON. tHESE DECKS WERE ENJOYED ALSO BY OUR DOGS.

ONLY DOWNSIDE WERE ALL THE STAIRS..WHICH TOWNHOUSES OBVIOUSLY HAVE AND THEN THE BOARDWALK TO THE BEACH WAS LONG AND 83 STEPS EACH WAY, A LITTLE DAUNTING FOR AN OLDER PERSON. AT LEAST YOU HAD TO CARRY NOTHING AS THERE WAS CHAIR/UMBRELLA SERVICE PROVIDED.

OWNERS WERE HELPFUL AND VERY NICE.

YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS PLACE!

Florida at its best

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this townhouse for a week in June 2015. The weather was wonderful with ocean breeze and 80 degree temperatures. It rained a few days during the week, but this allowed us to take advantage of the covered balcony with panoramic views of the ocean. There were two balconies with glass sliding doors providing ocean views: one covered balcony from the first floor living room that had a table and chairs, and the second floor balcony from the master bedroom had loungers and umbrellas.The townhouse was clean and well kept. The townhouse was beach front with views of the ocean, sand dunes, sea oats, and palm trees. The flat screen TVs in the living room and bedrooms were very nice. We did not cook often, but the kitchen had all the amenities needed for cooking. The townhouse location was very quiet and private at the end of a dead-end street next to Camp Helen State Park and Lake Powell. The owner allowed pets, so our dogs were able to stay with us at the townhouse. There was plenty of room outside to walk our dogs. The dogs were allowed on the beach between the hours of 3 and 9 pm. Many VRBOs do not rent to people with dogs, but this renter welcomes responsible dog owners. The county requires your dogs to be kept on a leash and owners to clean up after their dogs. Overall, this was an excellent place to stay for vacation and we would stay there again. The townhouse location is convenient to Pier Park, Walmart, Dollar General, and several other shops and local restaurants in Panama City Beach, FL.

The only disappointment was the public walkway bridge to walk to the beach which had several stairs up and down (83 stairs one way to be exact). This made it difficult to go back and forth from the townhouse to the beach. People with health problems, arthritis, and disabilities may have a difficult time with the stairs. On the plus side, beach service was provided from 10 am to 6 pm. Therefore, we did not have to carry umbrellas and beach chairs to the beach.

Again, thanks for allowing us the opportunity to rent your townhouse. It was a wonderful vacation experience.

Map

Privacy Rarely Found! Awesome Views! Gulf Front, Pet Friendly! Just west of Camp St. Helen and turtle sanctuary. Lake Powell is a mile away with a boat launch and fresh water fishing. Salt water surf fishing is directly in front of townhouse. Too many great restaurants to mention. Our favorites include Schooner's Last Beach Bar and Grill with live music, in PCB, and MaGuires Irish Pub in Destin has the best smoked prime rib. Numerous PGA golf courses nearby including 'The Hombre'. You are 15 minutes from all the tourist hot spots with a semi private beach to come back to. Grilling and eating on the deck over looking the Gulf Of Mexico is our favorite location to dine.
