About Debra Smalley

I have lived and worked in Panama City all of my life. I enjoy going to the beach and made the decision that I wanted a place to stay on the beach that I could enjoy with my friends and family. Now I can share the fun with them and you. I feel very blessed to be one of the ones who gets to call Panama City Beach home. We are blessed with beautiful rivers, lakes, the bay and the Gulf. I grew up going to the lake or river every weekend. However, I always enjoyed the gulf more.

Debra Smalley purchased this condo in 2014

Why Debra Smalley chose Biltmore Beach

I have paid attention to every detail and have made sure that my unit is ready for guest. I stay at 509 Mariner West myself. I enjoy that feeling you get after you have spent the day on the beach "Chillaxin" and you come in from the beach feeling totally relaxed. You can fix dinner on the grill down stairs by the pool deck, have a glass of wine (or whatever you prefer) and then have your meal on the balcony. You can feel the wind blowing, hear the sound of the gulf, watch the dolphins play in the surf while watching the sunset. It is so relaxing. It just doesn't get any better than that!!!

What makes this condo unique

You will enjoy the beach view, sunsets, salt air and sound of the gulf from the gulf front balcony. I call 509 Mariner West "Chillaxin". I can chill and relax when I am there. 509 Mariner West or better yet "Chillaxin" is decorated in bright beach colors, lots of blue, red, white, yellow. You will love the beach motif and the big red comfy recliner after being on the beach all day.

Excellent place!

  • 5 of 5

Smaller building makes it much easier to get to the beach and back as well as in and out of the parking at any time. Being on the 5th floor, we only used the elevator when bringing in luggage and groceries, we used the stairs the rest of the time as we need every bit of exercise we can get.

The condo has been updated and has a very homey beachy feeling to it. Everything you need is there for you, from the nicely equipped kitchen to the beach chairs. The view from the balcony is just perfect. We saw dolphins, manta rays and beautiful sunsets from it (bring binoculars if you have them).

Private high speed 40 Mbps internet and HBO only sweetened the deal for us. Close to everything. Debbie is the best and is always there if we needed anything. We never repeated the same rental twice before but we already reserved this one for next year : )

The property was very good. It was clean, convenient and was as advertised. The owner was very pleasant to work with. No complaints with the property or owner.

There was a problem with paying in the VRBO system. Previous uses of VRBO went without a hitch. Since the change to HomeAway, the system is very difficult to navigate, for me anyway.

Probably will try to avoid VRBO in the future because of this.

What a great place! Will not duplicate other's positive reviews but Debra's personal touches and wonderful eye for art are commendable and create a great ambiance. Quieter area of PCB (which we wanted) and the beach was perfect. Definitely will stay again but next time for a longer visit!

Your on it! Panama City Beach
Car: recommended

Mariner West is located on the quiet end of Thomas Dr. It is located on the eastern end of Panama City Beach, which offers a more quiet laid back atmosphere. You are within walking distance of Scooner's (1 mile). Many great restaurants, fishing marinas and the St. Andrews State park are all close by.

This newly remodeled unit has granite counter tops in the bathrooms and kitchen. It is a spacious one bedroom two bath unit that sleeps 4. There is a new king size Serta mattress in the master bedroom waiting for you. A sleeper sofa in the living room, with a big red comfy recliner. It has a fully furnished kitchen, with everything you would need to cook your own meals. You will enjoy lounging on the Gulf front balcony, pool deck or the beach.

There is a full size washer and dryer in its very own utility room for your use after playing on the beach. Use it to store your beach items.

Golden Spoon winner Captain Anderson's is close by, as well as Scooner's (The Last Local Beach Bar). The St. Andrews State Park is always a treat, where you will find deer, alligators and the jetties.
