5 Bedroom, 5 Bath with endless Ocean Views from Second and Third Floors
Now I Sea is a new beach house with construction finished in February 2015. It is located three houses from Rosemary Beach (closest rental in Inlet Beach to Rosemary with gulf views) and directly across the street from the most western Inlet Beach access. This house has the most beautiful views of the ocean and unbelievable views of the sunsets from the second and third levels of this home. You couldn't ask for a better location...easy access to Rosemary Beach...but without the crowds on the beach.
Now I Sea looks directly at the white sand beaches and gorgeous blue waters of the Gulf Coast from the second and third levels. The walk to the beach is just a few steps from the front door. There is a hotel syle pool out our back door with lots of great lounge chairs and tables for you to enjoy. There is an outdoor shower on the front of the house to rinse off after spending a long day at the beach.
Now I Sea is a beautifully furnished home with lots of sunlight and expansive views of the gulf. The home has plenty of room for the privacy of everyone. Be one of the first to stay in this new home with new linens and new furnishings!
The first level has two queen bedrooms with a bath they share. It also has a master suite with a king bed and attached spacious master bath. There is also a spacious laundry room on the first level with an ice maker to pack your cooler for your excursion to the beach.
The second level features on open floor plan with a large gourmet kitchen, dining, and living room. The kitchen and dining areas seat 12 comfortably, 8 at the table and 4 at the island. The living room provides comfortable seating for all and opens up to a large deck with a large sectional sofa and dining table that seats 8. There is also a speaker system throughout the living, kitchen, second level deck, and the third level deck that you can enjoy listening to music while you are relaxing and taking in the views. Off the kitchen is a stylish powder room that you will love. There is also a spacious master suite with attached master bath off the kitchen.
You are 25 minutes from the Panama City International Airport. You are 10 miles from Pier Park in Panama City Beach if you want to go to a movie, shop, or ride the rides!
The third level has another living room with a pull out sofa with an attached full bath. There is also a private bunk room with 4 bunk beds for the kids to enjoy. The third level has a sun deck with 2 chaise lounges and table that seats 4. The views and sunsets from this deck are truly amazing!

About Kristen Merriam
We live in Birmingham, Alabama. We have 4 children and love coming to the beach.
Kristen Merriam purchased this House in 2013
Why Kristen Merriam chose West Panama City Beach
We bought this lot in 2013 after much searching for a prime location in Inlet Beach. We have stayed in Rosemary in the past but fell in love with Inlet Beach. You are adjacent to Rosemary without the crowds! There are not many gulf view properties left and we lucked out on a prime location.

A perfect house in a great location
Our family stayed at this property in late December until Jan. 1st, 2018. The house was great - perfect for our family. The kitchen was well-equipped. It was winter and a bit cold so we didn’t use the community pool that was steps away. The beach access is just across the street and you have a view of the water from the porches of the house. Kristen - the owner - was very prompt with responses. We had a wonderful time.
Beautiful home with outstanding views of the Gulf!!!
Spent the week with my wife's family on the beach. Wonderful location and very easy to work with owners. I highly recommend!!!
Wonderful home steps from the beach and pool. Very clean, comfy beds, couldn't ask for more!
Perfect House, Perfect Location
We stayed for spring break week at Now I Sea and it was perfect for two families, 4 adults & 5 kids, and we had an extra bedroom leftover. The views of the beach and water were great, and it was as close and easy beach access as you can get other than being right on the beach. The location in Inlet Beach but right next to Rosemary was ideal, walk or bike to everything, but the beach was not as crowded as Rosemary. The kids liked the community pool as well. The owners were very helpful and responsive. We will certainly plan to return at some point in the future.
Great home but disappointed with homeowners
This home is beautiful and so very convenient to the beach. Layout was ideal for our 4 families and we enjoyed being so close to the pool. We were so disappointed however after our stay we were told that there were stains to the sheets that could not be removed by the cleaners. We have rented with the same families for the last several years and are very contentious of being respectful of the homes we stay in. We have never had a situation where the people we have rented from have been disappointed in how we have treated their home. We are confident we left the home in fantastic condition but had no recourse in confirming that with with homeowner. We have been held responsible for $400 to compensate for the bedding. Be warned that as a renter you will not be able to address your concerns to these homeowners. They were not reasonable in listening to us and sided with their cleaners. While we would have enjoyed staying at this home again we feel like we were taken advantage of and our great vacation has been tainted with this terrible experience.
Our new fave beach house!
Discovered Rosemary Beach area 4 years ago when looking for a vacay place for grown kids and grandkids. Have been to Rosemary Seacrest and Inlet 3 times now. We LOVE Inlet Beach! And we LOVE Now I Sea. Even the name reminds me of a fave hymn--Amazing Grace! This is the best house for a big family! I speak from experience--8 adults and 6 g-kids under 6. We felt like we were in a resort or Architectural Digest with all the fresh decorating and fun accessories, great appliances, great floor plan, pool close by, and the beach to look at from the deck! Even tho it is not technically beach 'front', you have a fantastic view of the beach with the beach flags blowing in the wind and sunsets from a deck adorned with fantastic wicker sofas and chairs. My husband read his Nook out there every chance he got! Kitchen was spacious and great for cooking; quality appliance names that impressed the fam. Had a service deliver our groceries, which is great, and also grabbed stuff from the Farmers Market and cooked some. Ate out, went to concerts/splash pad at Alys, ate ice cream and candy at the Sugar Shack, had fabulous food at so many places, and did all the fun things Rosemary Beach offers. My husband and son are residential architects, son in law a builder and other son fabricates architectural elements and they all loved this house! All commented on how comfy the beds and sofas were. We did cover some of the chairs as we had 2 year olds, but that just tells you that the décor was so much nicer than we expected that we didn't want to spoil it for the next family. We loved the big wide porch entrance that allowed us to leave lots of kids stuff on the way in. And access to the beach was short and easy. My son carried kayaks and paddle boards and was glad for the shorter trip this year than last! Kristen, the owner, is wonderful to work with; we had one new appliance act up and she was on it and we had another within a day. She was always available and very, very gracious. I felt like she treated us as though we were family friends. just can't say enough about Now I Sea and her owners. We have already booked for summer 2017 and hope to keep coming back if our family doesn't get too big! I am with the other reviewer who said, let's keep it as nice as we can for the families after us!
