Our new favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

Recently had an opportunity to visit Panama City Beach for the first time. My wife and I chose this property and WOW! This house has EVERYTHING! Beautiful furnishings, comfortable beds, wifi...the kitchen was FULLY equipped! Our favorite spot was sitting on the upstairs deck with coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. It is located in a quiet cul de sac but that is what makes it even better. You are 500 steps from the beach and close to some AMAZING local spots like the Sandbar, Dusty's and Pier Park (I recommend them all) but then you are in your own little resort when you are back at the house. Can't say enough about the house or how beautiful the beach was. We are already looking at the calendar to go back again next year!! Our new favorite place!!!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family only had a few days to enjoy a vacation together before our son returned to college. We loved how much room we had at the house, and the easy walk to the beach and pool. The beach was not crowded at all! I've vacationed in Destin since I was a kid and this was our first time at this beach and we will return! Thank you!

Everything they said it was.

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described. A short walk to the beach (across the road and down a boardwalk), the pool was across the street. The house was delightful. Kitchen had everything we needed for cooking, including muffin pans. This neighborhood was quiet and family friendly. Path along 30A allowed easy walking to Blue Mountain Road and the famed home-made ice cream store. Publix grocery store was 5 minutes away by car. Panama City Beach (the teens wanted a little more excitement) is 30 minutes away. The beach accessed from the house has friendly guys who will rent you chairs, umbrellas, paddle boards and kayaks. There is a lake that backs up to the beach there so you can paddle board/kayak on the lake or the Gulf. The town of seaside is just down the road but shops and restaurants are very expensive there.

Managment company (Blue Swell) was excellent, very professional and on top of things. Quick responses to questions, and fixed a couple of minor maintenance issues quickly and with no hassle.

Great house for families!

  • 5 of 5

Great house and great location! Great, spacious, 2 story house. Right across from one of two community pools. One of the closest houses to the beach access. Great beach access! Perfect decor for families with children. Lots of seating and no nicknacks to worry about. We felt right at home at Dicks. Our family had a wonderful week of visiting the beach, the pool, and riding bikes.
