About Nancy W. Anson

We have been coming to this part of the world all our adult lives. Richard grew up in Jacksonville Florida and thought THAT beach was perfect - until he saw the white, white sand and beautiful blue/green water - and we also have waves! We bought property years ago and then sold it and then bought others. We bought our lot sight unseen as nothing was around, and then it took years for the architect to plan, and then the state planning/zoning commission to give us the go ahead to build. Then several more years to build our plans into reality. Its tough building right on the Gulf. This has been a labor of love, and we think you will see this in our home. We love our home, this magical place and the beauty all around us. We have wonderful family and friends' memories here. We know you will as well!

Why Nancy W. Anson chose West Panama City Beach

We have a private beach which is reserved for our guests and others in our small neighborhood. We have NONE of the crowds of Rosemary and Seacrest beaches and have 8 beach chairs and 4 umbrellas reserved every day at the foot of our private dune walkover. And 5 bikes. We have many original works of art and wonderful accessories. Fantastic view, able to see Panama City Beach and Sandestin - better view than any of the other homes including those in Rosemary Beach! Construction nearby, but controlled hours.

What makes this House unique

Our home is beach front with a fantastic view. It is not just a "rental house" but a real home.You will see this. We live here much of the year. We have our own private beach walk over. We own the beach in front of our home to the high water mark, e.g. the compacted sand. Trespassers may be asked to move. We have free bikes and 8 chairs and umbrellas set up every just for our guests. Wonderful large room for kids and a great pool, plus a carriage home always included for our guests who want to get away from the rest of the home.

Not only was our home perfect, the owners very accommodating, but the area is absolutely wonderful! We found it easy to get to by air, and lots to do while there. The home is beautifully furnished and comfortable, wonderful view and of course the beach is magnificent! “Kids running on the beach and a family having portraits shot where silhouetted against a reddish-orange sky as big golden sun sank into the Gulf.” Yes, that’s what we found as well.

                                                                      Hidden Gem

The beach is wonderful, white powdery sand and gorgeous blue green water. But oh my goodness, this home, Anchor Cliff is fantastic. It truly has one of the best views in the area. On the deck we saw the high rises of Destin to the west, and those of Panama City to the east. At night the lights sparkle like a diamond bracelet. The home is large and has lovely original artwork. The house keeping staff and owners went out of their way to make certain everything was perfect for our stay. This is truly a hidden gem.

                                                                      Rain, rain, rain but fun

It rained most every day. But the house had various games, movies, wifi, and TV’s in every room. Covered decks to watch the rain. Wonderful restaurants, an abundant variety of shops close by. So we did have a great family vacation. We’ll be returning!

We recently spent a week in Anchor Cliff, a wonderful home! And yes, it is definitely a home, not simply a rental. This home had beautiful original artwork throughout, fine linens, good beds, well equipped kitchen and many recreational games and even included bikes. Beautifully accessorized and every detail was thought out. The home was large and clean and had enough room so everyone had their own private space. The pool was bigger than most in the area and a welcomed relief from the spectacular white sandy beach and incredible blue/green water. Perfect location, close by – within a short walk - to fine restaurants and shops, yet while in the home or on one of the very large decks, one felt now crowded and apart from the rest. The sun sets were marvelous and the views from those decks were amazing. One could see all the way to Panama City Beach and San Destin. The housekeeping staff went out of their way to accommodate us, and the owners helped us plan our vacation so we would have a memorable stay. They were all friendly and made us feel at home in their home. Wonderful magical place and great people!

We arrived just hours before the firework show on both sides of the gorgeous home Dr. Anson's allowed us to "share" from her and her husband. The home was immaculate upon our arrival. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay or more comfy accommodations! We did have some people encroaching upon the "private beach" to the home. i made a phone call to the Property Manager, and Amy was on it!! She drove out from her home that is 30 minutes away, without hesitation and monitored the beach for us, and stopped any further compilations, and we had smooth sailing the rest of the week! She really is good at her job!! Nancy is very lucky to have found Amy! Nancy was very accommodating to us before our arrival and during the booking process of the home. She even called us the night we arrived to make sure everything was well within our expectations of the home!! We have never had that happen before. Also, when we arrived, Amy had left us a "things to do and see, where to dine....while in Rosemary" pamphlet, it was so wonderful to have this at our disposal!! From fine dining to ice cream shoppes. The only complaint I have...is that the week went by extremely too fast! We have already booked for next year!!!!!

It was a wonderful experience, fantastic sand and water, couldn't have been in a better location - but most of all the home was absolutely perfect, especially for our family! Great beds, linens, beautiful accessories, everything in the kitchen one would ever want, bikes and sand toys. I know that the owners don't just use this as "another rental property" and it shows. it really is a home! Every detail is well thought out! The only down side we had the entire week was right at first when we arrived. The poor cleaning staff had been working frantically all day to get the home "back in order." The renters before us had really made the housekeepers jobs difficult; made a huge mess and apparently destroyed property as well. But they worked hard, were very accommodating to us, apologized for the delay. No worries - we went to the beach! Then they called the next day to see if everything was okay with us, and if we needed anything. They really provided such friendly assistance and advice about the area. The Property Manager is just a phone call away if needed, which is a blessing. We will be staying at Anchor Cliff again!!
