About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This beautiful three story beach house is just a few steps from an almost private section of beach! Enjoy a view of the white sugar sand beach and glorious sunsets from the second and third floors. Perhaps you would prefer to lounge around a private pool, instead. The house is located in a lazy laid back neighborhood of private homes on the beach. At the same time, you are 5-10 minutes away from all the best restaurants and shopping. Call-931-808-9175!!

Friends of mine once said that when they go on vacation, they want to stay somewhere that is nicer than their own home. That is exactly what we have tried to accomplish with this totally elegant Beach House. Purchased and decorated for 2012, this place has all the bells and whistles. Every bedroom has a King size bedroom suite. The two built in bunks have deluxe pillow top mattresses. There is a full sleeper sofa on the first floor and a queen sleeper sofa on the second. This is a perfect set up for two or more families.

Be prepared for luxury from the formal dining room with fireplace as you enter, to the 12 foot ceilings and magnificent crown moulding throughout. Granite counters grace the well equipped kitchen as do the stainless appliances. Watch your favorite shows on either of the two 55” LED screens or enjoy your show from the comfort of your bedroom.

On the second level you will find what we like to call the family suite. There you will find a large family room, including a wet bar and half bath. The built in bunks make this like a fourth bedroom. There is a large balcony overlooking the private HEATED POOL. The second floor bedroom has a king bedroom suite with bath, balcony and large HD LED TV.

The third level has two king bedrooms with private baths. The Master Suite is adorned with a fireplace, a Jacuzzi tub and a spacious shower. A private balcony off the Master is a great place to enjoy warm moonlit Florida nights. The second bedroom has a beautiful Tropical King Bedroom suite for your comfort. Here you will find the best view of the Gulf through large windows that span two sides of the room. Both bedrooms are equipped with a large screen TV’s.

Other Amenities: Private Pool : Washer/Dryer : Wireless Internet : Free Long Distance : Cable TV : Central Vac : Parking : Keyless Entry

Prime Location: On the quieter end of PCB on the much desired beach side of Thomas Drive. A hundred steps down Albacore Street and you are on the beach... no crossing busy streets to get to the beach. Only 3 miles from St. Andrews State Park and walking distance from several restaurants and amusement parks.

Sorry, NO pets allowed. Must have someone over age 25 to stay in the house.

About Bill Shaffield

Albacore House is our first vacation home. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. We are from Tennessee and hope to enhance your visit with good ole warm Southern Hospitality. Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay better. Feel free to call us when you arrive to let us know how everything is.

Bill Shaffield purchased this house in 2011

Why Bill Shaffield chose Gulf Lagoon Beach

We know you will love the house location. We have been visiting PCB for 25 years and have always wanted a place on or near Surf Drive. We love the little sixties style motels and beach homes in this peaceful little neighborhood. It is like walking back in time to a more innocent era. Hopefully, you will have an opportunity to meet some of our great neighbors. Feel free to speak when you see them... they like that.

What makes this house unique

There is more to do than sunbath or walk on the most beautiful beaches in America. We enjoy riding our bikes around the neighborhood. There are lots of practically deserted streets to ride on and bike lanes all over the county. We also bring our jet skis and go out on the gulf to watch the dolphins. Don't forget to keep your eye out for a manatee while you are on the beach. They are quite friendly creatures. Susan loves the great shopping at Pier Park and Panama City. There are several dive shops Thomas drive if you like scuba diving. I have snorkeled on the jetties at St. Andrews Park. There is some good bike riding in the park as well. PCB is becoming more and more popular for motorcycle riding. I like riding down through Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe to Appalachicola. The oysters come in on the boats right there and most of the restaurants serve them up fresh.

There is plenty of entertainment for everyone. Shipwreck Island Water Park, miniature golf, a half dozen golf courses, charter fishing, para sailing, boat and jet ski rentals, and more.

A terrific place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable, well appointed house steps from this gorgeous gulf coast beach. Bill was so friendly, very helpful and prompt in responding to our questions. It was our family's first visit to this area and we loved it. House is close to many things if you want to be out and about, but in a quieter stretch of the beach. We all hope to be back again.

A beautiful home exactly as described for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful home and had the best vacation week. The home was exactly as described. We had plenty of room and really enjoyed the outdoor seating area around the pool as well as the 2 indoor seating areas. The beach is a very short walk and it's as if you have a private beach area....beautiful sand and water. We watched sunsets at night and enjoyed morning walks. Walmart was less than a 5 minute drive, walked to a couple bars and very short driving distance to restaurants. We also just enjoyed eating in and using the grill that was provided. We did use the pool one day, the grandchildren loved it! A gas station is right across the street if you needed something quickly. We highly recommend this home and are sure we will visit again. The owner was great answering all my questions before we arrived. He was easy to get in touch with and I'm sure we will be in touch with him again. This was our first VRBO experience and we were impressed.
