About Ellen Mapelsden or Robbie Fehrenbach
As my family grew in numbers, my father built this Bayfront home. My parents, two sisters, brother and I created so many wonderful memories here and would love for you to have the opportunity to have your own experiences and adventures in this incredible neighborhood. Robbie & I love St. Andrews. We live here and have operated our local coffee house for the past 17 years in St. Andrews, while working with the neighborhood residents, businesses and community leaders to revitalize this wonderful sleepy village. Having recently sold our business, we re-directed our lives to the path to restore my childhood home in an effort to carry on my parents' legacy of a warm, peaceful and inviting place to live, even if only for a short visit.
Ellen Mapelsden or Robbie Fehrenbach purchased this House in 1958
Why Ellen Mapelsden or Robbie Fehrenbach chose Bay VIew Addition
This is my family home built by my father in 1958. My parents raised my younger brother and two sisters and me in this warm and inviting home. It is directly on the bay in a tree canopied Historic neighborhood. Not only did these surroundings influence our childhoods, but it has influenced the childhoods of several generations as it was the site of many family and friends gatherings over the years. It was one of my mother's greatest joys to see people appreciate the surroundings here and have a great time while doing it. We know she is smiling down at the chance to spread the fun and enjoyment and adventure this homestead has to offer.
What makes this House unique
Stunning views day & night of the your private beach, the bay, St. Andrews Marina and Panama City Port from the 16' x 32' deck, the brick patio, the bay room and every bedroom. All tucked in under the shade of beautiful old growth trees, so if you need a shady respite from the private beach you can just venture back up the yard to the deck or patio. There are also four kayaks for your enjoyment and a fire pit on the beach.

Great place for family vacation
The home was well stocked. I love all the space and privacy.
Old word charm
We enjoyed our stay all 5 of us 6 including Riley ( German Shepard)
The house is clean & accurate in in the description online. I loved reading about the history of Saint Andrews Bay. I thought long and hard about any complaints that I would have, I really can't think of any. Ellen was wonderful to talk to she told history of the house and neighborhood and such. We all love kayaking, hunting for crabs watching the sun go down with the waves hitting your feet-that is definitely a good end to an evening. I highly recommend this house. I will be back
Perfect venue of comfort for relaxing with family & friends.
As the guest book confirms repeatedly, there are no words to truly express what a wonderful place you have found. Ellen & Robbie extend a home-away-from-home for your enjoyment. Clean, comfortable, close to many opportunities for activity but not so close as to lose privacy or opportunity to commune with nature.

Views are even better than last year.

St Andrews Getaway
Lovely home with private sandy beach and kayaks!! Everything you need for a quiet vacatiion with places to eat and drink nearby or entertain at home. Historic area coming back after Hurricane Michael. Owners are so great. Community extra friendly. Totally recommend this place!
Excellent location and amenities with superb host, and pet friendly to boot.
My wife, teenage son, dog and I thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay in this bay front home and hope to be able to return in the future. Our March 2019 stay was during Spring Break, but the excellent location of this home meant we did not have to experience the noise and chaos of the spring break crowd unless we chose to. The home has its own beach on the bay and includes a fire pit and chairs allowing us to enjoy the sunset in peace. The home was stocked with nearly any amenity you could imagine including more beach towels than you could use, sun glasses, games, and even kayaks for use in the bay. We did not experience a single instance of needing to go to the store and pick up something we thought should have been included / available in the home. The homeowner / host was great. She left us alone and allowed us to enjoy our vacation undisturbed, but was available and quick to respond the couple times we had questions about the area and the use of the kayaks. The experience could not have been any better, and I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to have a quite place to retreat to while still having the ability to enjoy all the attractions Panama City Beach has to offer. And, being pet friendly so your furry family member can come with you just makes it all that much better.
Thank you for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your return.
