About Jan McFall

We are Stan and Jan McFall, and we are delighted to share our second home with you! In buying this property, we fulfilled a long time dream of owning property on the gulf front. I grew up in Panama City, and this was the beach my family and I came to all my growing up years. When Stan came on the scene, he also loved the Thomas Drive area and staged some romantic moments there (think down-on-one-knee proposal!). It is truly our favorite spot on the World's Most Beautiful Beaches. We are just regular working people( a teacher and a preacher) who have saved a long time to be able to have this adventure, and we are especially excited to own a place in the sun since we live in Minnesota where the winters are sometimes six months long! We hope you love our place and that it becomes your home away from home, too.

Jan McFall purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jan McFall chose Biltmore Beach

We ourselves had stayed in a Nautical Watch unit a few years ago. We chose it as our vacation lodging because we did not want to stay in a high rise. We loved the Nautical Watch location so much that we actually decided to buy a unit while we were on vacation. We love it because it is a small complex, it is meticulously maintained, and it is on Thomas Drive on the east end of the beaches.

What makes this condo unique

When we visited our unit for the first time, the view of the gulf upon opening the front door simply stole our hearts. The unit needed some serious updating at that time, but that view trumped the work that needed to be done, and we claimed our little gem on the gulf. We have lovingly freshened up this place in the sun and sand, and it is ready for you! If you are like us, you will see and hear the waves crashing to shore and be captivated each and every time.

Balcony was under construction and off limits, hard to fully enjoy what this condo has to offer

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very pleasant to work with. She made us aware in advance of the construction. We are very understanding and made compromises as well as the owner. We would like to stay again sometime when there isn’t construction noise and obstruction of the view out on the balcony. We loved our stay and the place is quaint and a very nice location. Had a great time with my family!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your patience and flexibility with the project! You were so easy to work with, and I am deeply appreciative. Please come back again so you can fully enjoy the wonderful balcony. It was very unfortunate that this project did not happen before the weather was warm and nice. That was beyond my control, but I still do not like that you did not get to sit on that balcony and hear the waves crash on the shore. With sincere gratitude--Jan

Stormy weather

  • 4 of 5

Hurricane Nate arrived while we were in the condo. We were cool and had a well stocked kitchen as we were marooned. The weather did not allow much beach time but the look and smell of the ocean was relaxing and enjoyable. I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting a relaxing reprieve from daily life.

Sweet one bedroom right on the beach and first floor. No parking garage here, just pull up and unload. This is an older unit but it is nice, clean and is fully equipped. The overall feel of this room is cozy and feels like home. I loved the rocker recliner and being able to eat our meals overlooking the beautiful waters of the gulf. The bed is very nice but a little too firm for me. It will not keep me from renting again though. The owner is wonderful and makes sure everything is o.k. for you. Ronnie and Glenda , Dothan, AL

If you want a quiet relaxing vacation this is the place!! Perfect for our family if three but any more might be a tight fit. Loved the no stairs and the closeness to the ocean. Pool area was stunning!! We are already wanting to go back and will for sure stay in this unit if available!!

The Thomas Drive area of Panama City Beach is fantastically situated because it is close enough to Panama City with its own shopping that is less touristy, and yet its close proximity to Pier Park and the new Frank Brown Sports Complex makes it an ideal place to stay. Of course, several authentic seafood restaurants are very close by, too: The Boatyard, J. Michaels (owner's fave), and Captain Anderson's just to name a few.
