About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

If you are looking for an upscale, elegant home and not just someone's rental property, you have found it! We have taken much care and consideration in designing our beach home. Our home away from home has everything you need!

'Rosemary Style' Beach cottage, in the heart of Panama City Beach. This cozy beach home is located just 700 feet, from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. We are a 2 minute walk to the beach and 30 seconds to our community pool.

We are on the quiet side of Thomas Drive, with deeded beach access away from the busy condos. Avoid the overcrowded hotel beaches,parking decks and elevators. No pool or parking passes needed here! In fact, our beach access is located in a natural area that has not been developed with hotels. Walk to family activities such as Emerald Falls golf, go-karts,bumper boats and bungee. Also, a short walk to many great places for dining and nightlife such as Spinnaker, La Vela, Pineapple Willies, Capt'n Jacks, Liza's, Finn's Surf Shak. Take a 5 minute drive down Joan Ave, to see attractions such as Wonderworks, Ripley's and Zoo World. Spend a fun day at Pier Park located 10-15 minutes away. On Thomas drive visit Captain Anderson's Marina, and Schooners Beach dining. Join Mr.Surf's Board club to rent paddle boards, surfboards and extra bikes.

The upstairs kitchen,living, and dining areas are completely spacious and open. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, with a granite bar top for extra dining. The dining area has room for seven to sit comfortably. The living area is newly furnished with a sofa and 3 comfy chairs. A 42' flat panel television can be seen from all areas. Open the french doors to the balcony and let the fresh breezes in. Enjoy ocean views while having your morning coffee or glass of wine in the evening. Dine on the balcony, while watching your favorite show or game.

The three bedrooms are all spacious, with their own ceiling fans and private bathrooms. All bedrooms have luxurious 400 thread count sheets and upscale bedding. The master bedroom has a King bed and exterior door that leads to the front porch areas. Across from the master bedroom is a kid friendly room with a Queen bed. The third bedroom has a queen size bed and is located on the top floor, along with the kitchen, living areas.

No need to pack all those bulky beach toys. Boogie boards, sand toys and shovels are provided for use during your stay. After a fun day at the beach, cool off in the community pool, which is shared by only 7 other homes. Rinse off at your own outdoor shower. Fire up the gas grill and throw some shrimp on the barbie! Enjoy hanging out in the outdoor areas around the home. Our courtyard area has been sanded and planted with tropical plants, just to give another area to relax in.

The house is stocked with everything you need. You won't be running to the store for incidental items. We have it all... blender, wine opener, grill utensils, fondue pot, books, games, dvds ,etc.

What makes our home different than the other homes in our community? This is our personal vacation home too, so no details have been missed.

Come stay at a 'truly' luxurious and upscale home!!

Why Katrice Brewster chose Gulf Lagoon Beach

We have been vacationing in and around Panama City for over 20 years. It has always been our dream to own a beach home of our very own. We chose this spot for the great beach access and awesome locale to everything!!!

What makes this house unique

We love renting paddle boards at Mr.Surf's and taking it down to the state park. Having lunch at Finn's for those famous fish tacos!

Great location! Clean, well equipped and decorated nicely. Katrice was really helpful,

  • 4 of 5

This beach home was a delight. It’s location made it easy to go to the beach and back. We would make coffee and walk the few minute walk to the beach to hunt for shells then back again to make brunch in the well equipped kitchen. It seemed it’s location was also in a quieter area as it didn’t seem as busy as other areas considering it was spring break. We were a short walk to restaurants, go-carts and mini golf, and surf shops. Just pop in the car and grocery stores and many more restaurants were within minutes.

We like to make meals and spend time playing games and watching movies with the family, so we spent a lot of time at the house. My wife and I and our 4 kids (3 teenager) we’re comfortable with the size. The house was clean, the beds were comfy and the appliances were modern. It had a great beachy feel from the decorations, so much so that our kids even commented. I loved enjoying coffee on the deck in the mornings.

The kitchen/dining/living are upstairs which surprised me, but we have no trouble with stairs and ultimately, I loved having the upper deck off of the kitchen.

Katrice was great to work with and always responded quickly to my emails or texts.

A couple small negatives: The pool was very small so it wasn’t appealing to our kids (but we had the ocean). We ran out of some necessities so we had to purchase paper products and trash bags.

Overall, our stay was great! We loved our little home away from home and we were so glad we chose it for our first Panama City Beach vacation!

Good house but it all depends on the persons preferences.

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice but if you’re a clean freak it needs a better cleaning of the carpets.and the kitchenware. The door of the fridge wasn’t working but we were notified it wasn’t going to be fixed while there. The house also is not on the water, Is about almost a block away and have to cross a traffic intersection. This was a bit dangerous. Overall it was on a good location the kids loved it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! I hope you enjoyed your stay! I will address your concerns with my housekeeper. The door to the refrigerator did work but, we had to have the seal replaced in which the part arrived this week and all is good. In addition, our listing does state we are 700 feet from the beach and shows a picture of the 2 minute walk.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this nice house. The house had all the necessary things to have an enjoyable time at the beach. The house is located steps from the beach which is ideal.

Nice house...there was more than enough room for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of sleeping arrangements. We had 9 people and it probably could've accomadated 2 or 3 more. Walking distance to the beach was a plus and the beach wasn't crowded. Only downside was the pigeons living in the balcony. There was a lot of bird poop.

  • 5 of 5

We were there for dance nationals. Made a prefect place for the girls to relax and get ready. A shorty drive to the center for dance. When we were not dancing it was a short walk to the beach! Near everything we needed and wanted to do. If ever back will stay here again!! Loved it
