About Ben Phillips

From Chattanooga TN. Love our Beach home and you will too.

Ben Phillips purchased this house in 2016

Why Ben Phillips chose Gulfview Heights

My family is like every family. We tried to go on vacations to the beach. And when we did, I remember how special it was. I still remember the first time I felt the ocean. There is no doubt that a kid growing up can be positively impacting by the experience in the sand, building those first sand castles, swimming in a wave, searching for sea shells & finding the ultimate score, sea glass of long ago treasures!

I have a two young boys that are full of energy. They ask me many days, "Can we go to the beach?" My response is an excited one, "Oh, we will be there soon!"

Don't forget your sun lotion! Its gonna be a lot of Sunshine on that skin! And that is why I chose this home, the location, the fun, the Sun, the GREATEST TIMES IN LIFE ARE HERE!

What makes this house unique

Exceeding expectations is key in life, so surprise! Since you read this far- My home has a YOLO board. You have to supply the paddle as they get lost too easily and its cheap to rent the paddle.. (usually about $10-15). Keep in mind though, don't use it if you can't handle it. It is an expensive board that is not for the novice and can only be taken in CALM WATER!

A beautiful house owned by beautiful people

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we expected and wanted. The furniture was beautiful the kitchen had all sorts of top appliances and more. Rooms where beyond comfortable and acomidated everyone. Not only that but the owner him self was very kind in answering all our questions and also giving us helpful tips on the best places to eat, play, and view the beautiful ocean. Our stay was extraordinary and I know whoever else stays there will be too!!!!!!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family! It was very clean and had lots of space. The open floor plan allowed me to interact with the family while I prepared meals. The big farm table was great for family meals and games. The home was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities we needed while we were there. Having the private pool was so convenient! We had three little ones under 6 and we were often in it before breakfast (and lunch and dinner). It was an easy walk or drive to one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to. There were little tide pools for the kids splash in and the picnic and restroom facilities made a day at the beach easy. There is a Publix within a 10 minute drive and a seafood market and ice cream stand/beach store at the end of the street.

If you like touristy stuff, it is a short drive to Panama City Beach for mini golf, go cart tracks and lots of other family activities.

Ben was so easy to deal with and made sure everything was perfect for our vacation! I will definitely be bringing my family back to stay in this home!

The property met all our expectations. Great location, very clean and well taken care of.

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very helpful and made you feel welcome. My family had wonderful time. Everything was very convenient restaurants, stores, beach, etc. I would recommend renting golf cart if you have small children. You are able to drive any where on 30A on the golf cart. I rented two from Sowal Beach Buggy. You will never go wrong renting this property.

Perfect house for us!

  • 5 of 5

We knew the house would meet out needs perfectly (and it exceeded our expectations) but the perfect location of the home was an unexpected surprise. The layout of the house was incredibly efficient and functional. It really is as wonderful as the pictures make it seem, especially the pool! The owner, Ben, was more than accommodating and was easily accessible and quick to respond when we had questions

In regards to location, we were a little nervous as we frequent 30A and know how crowded the summer weeks are in addition to the Florida heat. The walk to the beach was totally manageable, even on the hottest days. The public beach wasn't overly crowded and there was ample parking in the mornings. Even during peak season, Dune Allen Beach, Gulfview Heights and Gulf Place had a very chill atmosphere and this definitely earned points in our book!

Beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is as described! Beautifully decorated with modern touches. I wanted a home for my family to vacation at that didn't come with the normal tropical decor and this house did that. Beds were amazingly comfortable with plenty of blankets and pillows for everyone. The home was clean and very well equipped with everything we could need. I do recommend maybe just a few extra trash bags be available, with a large traveling party it was definitely not possible to use 1/day. No negatives about this home..... definitely will be booking again!!!
