About Cherie and Jeff VanHuss

My husband and I share our home northwest of Atlanta, Georgia, with our four year old Goldendoodle, Murphy! Growing up in Atlanta, I had always visited and so enjoyed the beautiful white sandy beaches of Panama City Beach and have many very special memories with my family. After our marriage in 1992, we camped often in the mountains and my husband, growing up in Tennessee, did not share my excitement of the Gulf Coast. He only knew the beaches of the Atlantic and was never excited about a trip to the beach. One trip to this area of the Panhandle forever changed his idea of the beach! He could not believe the white, sandy beaches, the Emerald waters and the quaintness of the area. We now have become regulars to the area and long to spend more time here one day! We are a house divided when it comes to SEC football, myself, a Georgia girl, married a devout Tennessee fan and we have a great time during football season. We find time to golf and enjoy the option to play many of the wonderful courses located close to our new beach home. We also enjoy camping, boating, gardening and time with family and friends, both in Georgia and Tennessee. Our love of real estate fills the remainder of our free time as we enjoy interior design and remodeling homes. Our faith, family values and love for each other are always first in our lives and we open the doors of this special place for you to celebrate special family time together. Every day is a blessing and we welcome you as our guests to enjoy this beautiful place and count your own blessings in life! Have a great time and may you leave here renewed and refreshed!

Cherie and Jeff VanHuss purchased this condo in 2014

Why Cherie and Jeff VanHuss chose Panama City Beach

We vacationed at The Summerhouse when we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We fell in love with the complex and surrounding area. The family atmosphere and only steps to the beach made us realize this was a special place. In May 2014, we purchased our piece of paradise! We are continually upgrading the condo so some upgrades may have occurred since our last photos. We hope you enjoy your vacation here and cherish the memories for many years to come. We look forward to hearing from you soon!!!

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful view of the beach and pools. Take one flight of steps to the condo and avoid waiting for the elevator during peak season. Parking is convenient, no roads to cross with groceries and children. Complex is on the quiet end of PCB and very family friendly.

We loved the Summerhouse. Clean and well kept, organized activities if you choose to participate.

The property was wonderful and our condo was even greater! Owners were very easy to work with. It was well stocked with everything! Some of the water view is blocked a bit by a palm tree...it just needs to grow and won't be a problem ;-) We were out on the beautiful white sand beach as much as we could be. Our whole month was delightful!! Thanks Cherie and Jeff!

Cherie was very easy to work with. Condo was clean, just as described, pools were nice, having beach chairs ready everyday was very convenient and a nice added benefit. We would definitely rent again.

Cozy & Relaxing...........

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed staying in Jeff & Cherie beach home for somewhat three years now.....each time being just as enjoyable & wonderful as before. I can't begin to list the many things this "perfect" place offers.....the most important being "relaxation" and time to enjoy quiet times alone & with ones family. Cherie & Jeff have an eye for detail, making your stay as worry free while enjoying their cozy home away from home. It's stocked very well, clean as can be, nice comfortable dark bedrooms for sleeping in and a welcoming cool balcony for just sitting and looking at the shore! What more could one ask for.....nothing in my book! If you have not stayed on Thomas Dr. please give it a try "Biltmore Beach" is located on the quiet end of Panama City Beach...... Summerhouse is a great "family" vacation spot, having two beautiful pools, hot tub and a fantastic shaded area for just relaxing under and watching over the shore. Loaded with lovely palms and blooming plants it's a restful place of beauty! We're so happy we found this place many years ago. We have enjoyed our quiet times here as well as our son and his family! It's a very safe place for children......our grandson's have a ball each year on their visit! Thank you Jeff & Cherie for sharing your beach home another year with us, we've had three wonderful weeks! Hope to see you next year for more enjoyment!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our second time to stay at Summerhouse and it was better than the first. Our condo was perfect. Overlooking the pool and the ocean. The condo was very homey and nicely decorated. The owners Cherie and Jeff were attentive and responded to me immediately when we had a question . We liked it so much that we stayed another night! I definitely will be renting this same condo next year with my family. Thank you Cherie and Jeff for allowing us into your beautiful summer home!
