About John or Meka Benefield

Our combined family has been coming to Panama City Beach for more than fifty years, we have owned many properties here through out the years and have made many fond memories here. We think it's the greatest place on earth !

John or Meka Benefield purchased this house in 2001

Why John or Meka Benefield chose Miramar Beach

We had an opportunity to purchase this property and hired an Architect to custom design our home with the intent of using and sharing our home with guests. We designed all the rooms to be spacious with tall ceilings incorporating amenities with families in mind. I am a licensed General Contractor and personally oversaw the construction of this home from the ground up with emphasis on quality.

What makes this house unique

Our home has 12 ft ceilings, large spacious rooms and bedrooms, clean and beautifully furnished, all rooms but one are ocean front with unobstructed views with decks or lanai's. We also have a private heated pool, ample parking and are situated on a large lot. We are conveniently located to Pier Park, grocery stores, restaurants, churches and attractions. You will not be disappointed , this is the real deal !! You won;t find a closet with bunk beds in it here as many of our competitors have, just large comfortable rooms and beds.

Great time at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home for our family vacation. With 10 adults and 4 children ages 7 months to 5 years, there was plenty of room for everyone. The open downstairs floor plan allowed for lots of family time even during meal preparation. The large outdoor deck area gave us plenty of room to spread out and the two dining tables made dining outdoors a pleasure. Having the beach right out the back door was so convenient, especially with the little ones. The pool was perfect for the children (and adults) to take a break from the beach and cool off. Also no unruly children running over the top of our children.

The owners were great. We had many questions and they were always very responsive. During our stay the microwave died - no problem! We had a new microwave installed very quickly.

For a vacation with a large family, this is definitely a great place.

Clean and Beautifully Designed Home

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation with 8 adults and 7 young children. Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed the secluded first floor master suite and everybody else spread out over the enormous upstairs. It was so nice to have a bathroom for every family. Beds were super comfy. We appreciated the baby gear provided. Being located right on the beach was wonderfully convenient and made it easy to enjoy the gorgeous views hanging out by the pool, sitting on the decks and from most of the windows This home is beautifully designed and we very much hope to return and enjoy it again!

We had 10 in our party. We had an awesome time! The weather was terrible, but the atmosphere of the house and pool made up for it. I will definitely stay there again!

We loved High Tides!

  • 5 of 5

We had 17 people in our group. Plenty of room for all. The house is beautiful and the location is perfect. The beach was so wonderful, we found ourselves spending all of our time right out in front of the house. It truly made our stay a trip to remember. I HIGHLY recommend Hightides. Jon and Meka could not have been more accommodating. Thank you!

Exceeding our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We just returned after a one week stay at High Tide. We had 8 adults and 8 kids ages 11-16. Let me start by saying that the pictures do NOT do the place justice. The rooms were spotless, large airy with plenty of room for all of us. We never felt like we were tripping over each other. For example the island in the kitchen easily seats 6 or more making it easy to feed a crowd. The furniture in the living room looked a little dated in the pictures but was much nicer upon arrival. The dish washer and new washer and dryer worked beautifully. The kitchen had more appliances than expected such as crock pots multiple blenders etc. We learned that four families and one fridge is somewhat of a challenge and suggest that meals be planned carefully. We used coolers for drinks. Since grocery stores are close you can easily pick up what you need every couple of days.The bathrooms were much larger than the pictures. With 16 people including teenagers who love lengthy showers, there was always plenty of hot water. The beds were all very comfortable with multiple pillow options. Note the loft is a pull out...we added a foam topper for extra comfort but definitely best suited for younger ones. Speaking of little ones there were lots of beach toys. The pool was clean and warm which we loved as the ocean temp was still a bit chilly. The beach was fantastic, complete with dolphins and various sea life and shells. We were pleased that we weren't in the midst of all the spring breakers! The sand was exquisite and thankfully there was a shower at the end of the walkway to wash off the sand. This property was by far the nicest large home for miles. The house exceeded my expectations and all of the couples agreed that they would return. People actually stopped to take pictures of this home... that's how much it stands out and above the neighboring properties. We are missing the spectacular sunsets already! 😎

Perfect home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We spent our first family vacation here. 9 adults and 7 children ages 1-17. Had a great time. Found there to be plenty of space without feeling crowded. The view of the beach and ocean is absolutely beautiful! Only thing we were disappointed with was the fact that not all rooms were equipped with DVD players. No one purchases VHS any longer and with a one year old and a two and a half year old, they missed their movies for bedtime . Not the end of the world but for the money our rooms tv didn't even show a clear picture. Could be updated. Word of advice would be if you are traveling with small children, security gates are must. Didn't expect them to be provided but don't forget them. We stayed over 4th of July and the fireworks up and down the beach were awesome! We took full advantage that the kitchen was completely stocked and cooked dinner every night. Refrigerator is small for 16 people lol. Loved that a pack n play was offered as well as a high chair. We will definitely return. Location is convenient and private. We miss it already!
