There are no hotels, condos or other homes to block your view. Located in a quiet neighborhood on a very private street. Kids can ride bikes safely and play in our big backyard. We have a beautiful saline heated pool with a brick patio/deck and a romantic pergola. The pergola is constructed using the original 100+year-old columns that were on the original veranda.
Inside the house our huge rooms have original antique heart pine floors, 11-foot ceilings, crown molding, original cast-iron fireplace grates, chandeliers and ceiling fans throughout. The gourmet kitchen has three sinks and is large enough for several chefs to create memorable meals. The large open dining room in the center of the house seats 12 to 14 (everyone can sit and have meals together for a change!). The front parlor and back parlor both have a TV, VCR/DVD, and queen sofa sleepers. Downstairs the full bath has a beautifully tiled shower. There is a screened-in porch just off the back parlor and a family size outdoor h/c shower. The back yard is large enough for a volleyball or badminton game or for tables and chairs for your occasion. We have Wifi Internet access throughout the house.
Upstairs bedrooms have breathtaking views of the gulf! The Master has a king-size cast-iron bed, ensuite bath with unique double vessel sinks, a shower and claw-foot tub.

The fourth bedroom opens onto the upper deck, has a queen sofa sleeper, a full size bed and an ensuite full bath. We have lush linens and towels for you. Just bring a beach towel!

About Anna Hamer
Anna is an artist and yoga teacher. She works in encaustics, pastels and oils. Her work is abstract in nature and influenced by the textures and colors at the ocean and seaside. Some of her work is in the house. Dan is a pediatrician in an Emergency Room (we hope you never have to see him at work!). We worked together to pick all the colors and furniture in the house. We never knew we would work together so well as on this project! We both grew up with and loved Victorian architecture. Dan in New York and Anna in Charleston, SC.
Anna Hamer purchased this House in 2004
Why Anna Hamer chose West Panama City Beach
We fell in love with the charm of this house the moment we walked in. It needed lots of TLC to restore! It was an amazing adventure to bring this beautiful Grand Lady back to her shining glory. She is truly a gem on the Emerald Coast. There are NO other Victorian homes on the beach in the Panhandle of Florida. We feel so lucky to have picked this spot as the beach still has dunes and is peaceful and quiet. We love weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and sharing our house with people who love it! We hope you will come and add your love to the house, too.
What makes this House unique
You will step back in time with the beautiful charm of this Victorian home. You will not sacrifice amenities as everything in the house has been lovingly restored and updated. The wrap around porches, upper and lower, are the place to be at sunrise and sunset. There is always a breeze! The bedrooms are huge! The kitchen is large enough for several cooks to create memorable meals for large groups (3 sinks!). There are two living room areas (parlors) for separate TV viewing. The entire downstairs area is open, light and airy for communal gathering. We are right across a quiet street from a dune preserve; one of the few places left in Florida with dunes. There are lifeguards at our public beach all summer. There is nesting endangered Sea Turtle watching in summer, too. The neighborhood is quiet and safe enough for kids to play outside. Our backyard is big enough for any outdoor gathering and the pool is awesome. The deck area is 13'x35'. The main yard is 48' x 30'.

Beautiful house. Perfect location. Excellent.
We spent the most amazing week at Anna's Veranda and ended it with our wedding! Magical day for sure! The house is breathtaking and the beach is perfect! We had plenty of room for our families and close friends to stay with us, and with this spectacular home and the beach as your backdrop decorations already complete for the wedding!! The owner and management company were great to work with! They even called after check in and before check out to make sure we were happy and our needs were met! Anna's Veranda is magical! GO. STAY. THERE!!!
This is a beautiful home with fabulous ocean views. Only a short walk to the boardwalk to the beach. It fit our family perfectly, as we were traveling with our children and grandchildren and everyone had their own bedrooms and baths. The pool was an added bonus and kept the little ones occupied well into the evenings. If you want a home away from home, this is the place for you. It was super spacious and decorated impeccably. The wrap around porches with seating up and down, made for relaxing evenings with a glass of wine in hand! Well worth the $.
Anna's Veranda is Paradise!
Anna's Veranda is a one of a kind property that I am happy to recommend. Unlike the quickly built residences that spring up along the coast, this is a gem of a Victorian, opened up to provide an airy, beach worthy feel. The house is very comfortable and beautiful inside and out.
The pool provides a great relaxation spot if the beach is rough or you just feel like hanging out there - which we did.
We definitely intend on returning. Thanks for providing such a fabulous vacation experience!
We are happy to host your vacations. We love the pool, too! You know we fell in love with this house from the moment we walked in. We are so happy to share it with you and hope you love it, too. Please come back soon!
Relaxing wedding week, think "ahhhhhh"
Our daughter and son-in-law wanted a small and relaxing wedding. These two ideas would normally be conflicting, yet we found the perfect setting at Anna's Veranda. This beautiful home served as our hotel for the week and reception venue with the wedding ceremony on the white sand beach right outside.
First of all, my sister recommended this home to us as we really didn't know how to start with a destination wedding. When I contacted Anna to discuss the possibility of renting the property she was on the phone with me for about an hour. She answered all of my questions and provided many good suggestions. Anna and the property management company were very communicative and clear about every detail. I found this to be very reassuring! The contracts arrived in the same manner, very clear about every detail so by the time we arrived we had no need to busy ourselves with calls and questions, we simply moved in and enjoyed the week.
We were able to house the small wedding party here for the entire week preceding the ceremony. Everything was clean, comfortable and in good working order. The kitchen was a huge plus for us as we did a lot of cooking. There are several sinks and a separate bar with a wine cooler. Bathrooms were layed out well and even with several young women in attendance we never had to wait long to shower. We intended to have the reception outdoors, but rain earlier in the day prevented this. Moving indoors was no problem for the two dozen guests, we had room for everyone and very little need to decorate as the home was already so beautiful.
In the end, we actually were able to have a relaxing and yet beautiful wedding for our kids. The hardest part was leaving. I highly recommend Anna's Veranda for the beauty and functionality of this home and amazing beach setting.
Thank you, thank you! We are so happy to have our guests feel at home in our home. That is exactly what we strive for by opening our home to you. And weddings are the icing on the cake! Come on down and see how easily you can relax and let go here. Welcome!
Wedding Venue Jackpot
When we decided to have a destination wedding, we were clueless as to where to start our search for a venue. Thank God for Google, which lead me to Anna's Veranda. Choosing this venue was one of my most favorite wedding decisions that we made! The place is GORGEOUS. Seriously, pictures do it no justice. It was perfect for our mostly DIY wedding. The ceremony was on the beach right across the street, and the reception was in the backyard. The kitchen was the perfect size for displaying all of the food buffet style, and the backyard was the perfect size for tables and chairs. It ended up being a little hotter than we had expected, but that was no problem at all because our 40 guests had plenty of room to sit inside, while they ate. Then, we went outback for some dancing!
As if the house weren't enough, Anna is such a wonderful person to work with. She is so, so kind and will be so excited for you! She answered all of my questions in a VERY timely manner and answered the phone every time I needed anything at all. She was even there the day we checked in getting something as simple as a broken trashcan sorted out before our stay! We had to push our wedding back one day due to something coming up that we found out a few months before, and Anna was very quick and happy to help! She is WONDERFUL to work with and so is the property management team.
