About the property

2Bedroom 3Bath with Spectacular Gulf View Steps Away from Private Beach

Enjoy staying in our very clean and charming two bedroom, three bath townhome that sleeps eight comfortably in the less conjested west end area Sunnyside in Panama City Beach. Situated in a small complex of six units directly across the street from three quarters of a mile of 'dedicated' beach which is EPA protected from anyone building on this lovely stretch of white sugar sand beach. This is a family friendly area and our beach is private for Sunnyside residents and their guests and it will be yours to enjoy. If you are looking for a high rise condo, like crowds, fighting for a spot on the beach and waiting for an elevator our townhome is not for you!!

We have spacious roomy accomodations. The kitchen is fully equipped and the dining table seats four with two extra seats at the counter bar. Enjoy your morning beverage on the shaded front patio. The living room has a queen size sleeper sofa, flat screen TV, blu ray DVD and free WiFi. The downstairs bathroom is complete with a full shower. There are lovely maple wood floors and hardwood steps that lead to the bedrooms and deck upstairs. The master bedroom has a king bed and full bath with french doors that open to a patio sun deck with lounge chairs where you can enjoy the spectacular gulf view and incredible sunsets. The second bedroom has a queen bed, built in bunk beds and an adjoining full bath and laundry room.

Please bring your own sand chairs and beach umbrella to enjoy the white sugar sand beach steps away from the front door. There are two designated parking spaces directly behind the back door entrance only six steps away. Very convenient so you do not have to cart luggage and groceries from a great distance away. Towels and linens are furnished but please bring your own beach towels. We supply a minimum amount of paper products to get you started.

We respectfully request NO SMOKING and NO PETS in our unit.

We are only minutes way from Pier Park with it fabulous shoppes and restaurants, Walmart Super Center, Target, Publix, Winn Dixie, Carousel, CVS, Frank Brown Complex, historic Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Watercolor down 30-A, the airport and many great restaurants and attractions. Through the years I have stayed at many high end resorts where I paid a high price for a longer walk to the beach, condo and parking. We offer SIMPLE, CLEAN, NICE AND COMFORTABLE at a great price that leaves you with the financial resources to explore many fun and entertaining options while on vacation staying in a fantastic vacation spot without breaking the bank.

Let us be your new home away from home.

About Terry Farrington

We bought our vacation home from the builder when it was a year old. Through the years we have had the opportunity to purchase many other units or condos. It has always come back to the fact that we love the location and the size of our beach home.

From our travels to the Pacific west coast, Hawaii, Atlantic east coast and the Caribbean I dare you to find any other beach to compare to or with the beauty of ours.

Our daughters were teenagers when we purchased our home and they loved it and now our grandchildren enjoy our beach house. It has been off the rental market for several years but since I recently retired, I can manage our property and have more flexibility to come to the beach myself. I am now offering our beach home for your enjoyment. As a business owner for the past forty-four years in customer service I will do my best to answer any and all of your questions to make your stay the best it can possibly be. We live only a short four and half hour drive away and I have loved the beach since I was child and vacationed in the Florida Panhandle with my parents.

It is so important to me that everyone enjoy their time off and vacation as I always have.

Terry Farrington purchased this townhome in 1985

Why Terry Farrington chose Sunnyside On The Gulf

We love our beach home at “Sunnyside on the Gulf”. Our little area still maintains a feeling of nostalgia of years gone by at the beach but so close to every convenience. You would pay triple to stay at a unit in a condo on the beach of the same size.

Love, love, love that we are not elbow to elbow with others on our hidden gem of “private beach”. Bigger is not always better in our opinion and all of our repeat guests feel the same way.

What makes this townhome unique

Although our unit is not new we offer a great value for the money. A unit this size in one of the high rise condos would cost you 2 to 3 times more. "SUNNYSIDE ON THE GULF'" is a wonderful throwback to the beach you visited as you were growing up yet so close and convenient to everything you need to make your vacation great.

We had a great girls trip! Lots of time together at the within a short walk peaceful relaxing beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying here. The 6 of us sleep comfortably and love how close the private beach is. We spend our days on the beach. During the late afternoon we drive to Peir Park and surrounding area for a early dinner. And then we watch the sunset from the Beach. Afterwards returning to the condo to play games, watch a movie and socialize. Kitchen is big enough to cook a big breakfast before starting out for the day and is equiped adequately to prepare dinner when wanting to dine in rather than go out. Table only had 4 chairs, there are two additional stools at the bar. We added 2 of the outside chairs so we could all enjoy time together around the table. The early risers in our group enjoyed watching the sun rise from the balcony. The owners and family are very responsive and great to deal with. We are looking forward to planning our getaway again next year!

Close to perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of the property. Not too far from the sights but away enough to where there wasnt a lot of traffic. Steps away from the beach that felt almost private. Although the property is joined with others there was no problem with noise. As soon as we settled we knew we made the right choice renting "Whatever". Hopefully our future endeavors will take us back here.

Fantastic townhouse, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over Labor Day weekend. The townhouse itself is extremely clean, quiet, and well-equipped. The owner was very nice and helpful. The location is fantastic. I expected a bit of a crowd on the beach because it was Labor Day weekend, and I was near Panama City Beach, but no! The nearest condo is blocks away, so the only people on "our" beach came from the small neighborhood around the townhouse. There was very little traffic going through Sunnyside, too, so crossing the street (even with a 5-year-old and lots of beach gear) was no problem. We will stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you and I am so glad your family enjoyed your stay at our townhome. It pleases me to know that you discovered our little secret gem "a beautiful beach almost all to yourself" and roomy, comfortable accommodations steps away to an easy access to that gem. I would love for our "Whatever" beach home to become your new vacation destination.
