Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Silver Sands Beach - Castaways

House, 5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 16-18)

We do not rent to spring breakers.

Castaway, newly furnished and remodeled in 2010. As you enter the ceramic tiled hallway of Castaway, you can see the waves through the windows at the other end of the house. You can see the attention to detail that will provide you with that BEACH feeling! Hurry...... out the back door and sink your toes in the sand! Ahhhh!!!!!! Your here!

Not only does this home provide you with 50 ft of sand and beach as your front yard, this home also provides 5 bedrooms and 6 baths. There is an upper level and a lower level. The upper level has two bedrooms with two double beds, the kitchen, the laundry room and a HUGE great room and dining area. From the dining and great room areas, you have a wall of windows and an entry onto the balcony. The upper level is ceramic tiled with carpet in the great room and dining areas.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all the essentials you will need to stay at home and cook your own seafood platter. There is also plenty of seating at the bar area or the two dining tables provided for you.

The great room area if fully stocked with DVD player, stereo system and TV with cable. You will also find that there is internet!

The lower level of the home provides 3 bedrooms, and a play room with video and arcade games and an air hockey table, for the kids or the 'kids at heart'. Two of the bedrooms on this level have views of the beach, and doors that open onto the deck and they each have a king bed. The 5th bedroom downstairs has two double beds. This level is ceramic tiled.

Each bedroom has a TV and it's own full bath. There are 2 additional half baths. 1 upstairs and 1 down stairs.

Both levels have entry onto the balcony and deck where you will find patio tables and chairs and a gas grill for those nights that you want to stay in and watch the beautiful sunset over the water! The balcony and deck have covered and uncovered areas for those that may want to feel the breeze but not bake!

Email for more pictures!

Located on the Quiest East side Thomas Drive area. Walking distance to many restaurants.

So rain or shine, here at Castaway, you will enjoy your vacation time. Whether you are sitting on the balcony, enjoying the beautiful day, or playing the video games while waiting for the storm to pass, it's always better at the beach!

About The Owner

We fell in love with this property the first time we saw it. I have always wanted a house on the beach. The location is perfect. The beach is quieter and far enough away from the high rises, yet close enough to enjoy the activities that they offer. Anthony's Beach service is available right outside our door. We have had many guests that rented this house years ago and are so excited that is it available again for rental. We have several return guests yearly already! We hope you love the house as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Panama City Beach

Right on the beach. All the luxuries of home. Quieter end of Panama City Beach but accessible to many activities and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite thing to do is sit on the deck and watch the dolphins playing in their own environment.

Our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family took our vacation here. It was everything we expected and more. The kitchen/living room was humongous. The pictures do not capture how big this place is. We didn't even know there was a hall bathroom in the lower level until the last day. We had a big group of adults and everyone was spaced out and we didn't feel like we were cramped. For as many people had, we never ran out of hot water after showers, laundry, and running the dishwasher. The beach was awesome, clean, and we found lots of shells. It was an awesome house! Thank you!

Wow!! What a wonderful vacation we had at Castaways!!! They are not joking about this beach home being as close to the water as you can get!! It was soooo very close!! So much easier to carry all the beach stuff & baby toys down! My husband & I took our children, grandchildren & niece; 10 in all. There was so much room; everyone had their own space. We absolutely loved the upstairs and spent much time enjoying the balcony overlooking the water! Just beautiful!! The kiddies enjoyed the game room! Such a nice, very, very clean house!!! Everything worked wonderfully; air was great; water was hot & great water pressure! So many bathrooms; no one ever waited :-) All the appliances; washer, dryer no problems! Stress free week!! So close to all the action spots too!! Thank you for being pet friendly; they are our family too :-) Rocco & Boomer were such good beach doggies! Couldn't have asked for a better beach home for the week!! Thank you Tammy for sharing your beach home with us!! Hope to stay there again next time we come with our large and growing family :-)

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

My group had 10 adults staying for a long weekend. We had plenty of room for everyone to sleep. Loved having double beds in three of the rooms (most of the places we looked into had bunk beds which would have been fine for kids not so great for adults). Also loved being right on the beach. The view was lovely and enjoyed having breakfast on the upstairs balcony. Tammy was wonderful and answered all questions. All in all will stay there again next year.

Fits the need!

  • 3 of 5

This is our 3rd year back to Panama City Beach, this time the whole family joined (11 kids, 7 adults). The house fit our needs from a size standpoint and was perfectly situated on the beach. However, there were some flaws....seemed out dated, the bathrooms had "school" style toilets which we found weird in a half-million dollar home and the Gulf of Mexico was warmer than my shower. If you are over 5'9, watch your heads in the downstairs bedrooms....those ceiling fans hurt, little hard to walk around in the room with your head always down. The "game" room was really more of an open area at the bottom of the stairs that had an old Air Hockey table and a TV with a game system that didn't work. The upstairs deck was nice, could use some wood work and stain, but was a great place for the adults to sit and relax till the late hours of the evening. We did NOT use the lower deck, the wood was popping up and we did not want anyone to get hurt. The biggest concern was the constant reminder of being charged if something happened or we moved/used something. There were signs posted everywhere, including the bathroom regarding towels, that if we used certain ones we'd be charged. In the kitchen, if the bowls weren't put with the bowls we'd be charged, etc. We are adults and understand that we are using someone else's home, we know how to be respectful, but walking on egg shells is a little tough while on vacation. In the end we realized that the signs were a scare tactic, but still! With that being said, the house did fit the family, everyone had space, and again it was perfectly situated on the beach which is what we wanted. We saw more marine life on this trip than any other which the kids loved. Close to shopping and grocery! All in all, it did fit our needs

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! The online pics do not do it justice! There were 17 of us and still had room for more! The great room is absolutely huge, the upper and lower decks had plenty of seating for all of us at the same time! I can't wait to go back. The beach was awesome too!!! Thank you Tammy!!!

This is perfect for family vacations

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best house we have used for our beach trips. We got this jewel twice now. I am really gonna miss it this year! Small group this year so its a condo:( for us. The house is huge! There is room for everyone to spread out. The beach location is perfect ,you don't even need a cooler just walk to the house and grab what you want. The balcony is my favorite, we can sit in the shade but still keep an eye on everyone in the group. My mother likes this house the best because of the kitchen. She could brew up her master pieces for dinner but still see what everyone was doing and yes the view was good even from the kitchen!
