About Jiimy Hambrick and Dianna

I moved here from Atlanta in 1988. I had always wanted to live on the coast and had always visited Panama city Beach.

Jiimy Hambrick and Dianna purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Jiimy Hambrick and Dianna chose Mexico Beach

In Atlanta I was a home builder and when I moved to this area I continued to build homes here. I had my office in Mexico Beach and I wanted a home here also.

What makes this apartment unique

Turtle Watch is a unique and comfortable unit. You have amazing views of the water from every room in the unit.

It is conveniently located to all of the amenities Mexico Beach has to offer.

Situated directly on the gulf of Mexico near the mouth of St. Joseph Bay, Mexico Beach is sheltered by the protective arm of the St. Joseph Peninsula and Cape san Blas. as a result, our white sandy beaches are among the safest in the country.

I want to thank you much for the opportunity to experience your wonderful location there at Turtle Watch. I don't even know where to begin! We couldn't have chosen any better location on the beach. I loved the porch and the fact that you could see the ocean from any room versus the property layouts nearby. The gate at the end of the porch was perfect for protecting my 3 and 4 year olds from the steps as well. We enjoyed the view from the porch as well both in the early morning when we were able to observe dolphins and in the evening during the beautiful sunsets. There were so many unexpected houseware supplies once we arrived that included everything you could possibly need to cook or bake as well as beach supplies. I loved that it was also perfectly located near several restaurants and the local grocery store as we walked to each several times throughout our stay. We did visit Cape San Blas one day to enjoy a horse ride on the beach via Two Bit Stables. I highly recommend that to anyone since there are so few places in the country that allow horses on the beach. And last but not least, we had the most miraculous experience of witnessing an entire nest of hatching sea turtles one evening just out front from your property! I don't know if any of your guests have had that experience before but it gave true meaning to your name Turtle Watch for us! We will most definitely be booking another stay in the future. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your location as the memories and experiences were priceless!

I use to live in Mexico Beach as a child and am very picky about where I stay when I visit with my family so they experience Mexico Beach as I did. This place was sheer perfection. From being right on the beach to being across the street from Gulf Foods, Turtle Watch unit D was above and beyond accommodating for its guests. Very well laid out and not over crowded with furniture, just the right amount. Even when my brother's family came to visit for a couple days, we never felt crowded out. Nicely stocked in the kitchen with appliances and supplies, as well as laundry needs. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, in fact, I can't wait to come back.

We loved the deck and spent a lot of time there looking out at the beach. The view is amazing! You also have great views from both bedrooms and the living room/kitchen area.

Turtle Watch was a great place to stay, we would love to come back.

Definitely would recommend this property!

The quaint seaside town of Mexico Beach offers a flavor all its own with unique shops, beachfront restaurants and waterfront recreation. Sugar-white sandy beaches, and clear waters.

Located on the Florida panhandle, Mexico Beach is a community on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico but miles from anything else. As you drive along scenic Highway 98, there are no high rises, nothing to block your view of sea oats and white sand. You may stop for a family of beachgoers crossing the road, but no traffic lights. Park between palm trees, and enjoy.

Mexico Beach was founded in the 1950’s and remains a friendly village where families have been making beachside memories for generations. Fishing is king here with public boat ramps and a popular fishing pier. Numerous festivals are held throughout the year with the Independence Day, Best Blast on the Beach, as one of the most anticipated. During your stay, take part in swimming, kayaking, fishing, recreational diving, eco-tours or just relaxing. When it comes to suppertime, if you have not caught your own dinner, visit one of the many restaurants, either on the beach or across the street. When you are in Mexico Beach, you are always within walking distance of the water.
