About Kathy Docken

We have owned this property for 20 years and did a total renovation when my husband retired from Saks INC in 2009 making it our permanent home. We have decided to spend our summers in Montana and to rent the house while we are gone. This is a unique opportunity to be a guest in our home and you will be pleasantly surprised and delighted at with all the perks that come with this home. I am a currently a Realtor with Coldwell Banker. We enjoy tennis, sailing, skiing and Hiking. W

Kathy Docken purchased this house in 1994

Why Kathy Docken chose Panama City Beach

This house is the show stopper on the beach. It's location across the street from Pier Park makes it highly desirable. You have the best seat in the house for the fireworks from the pier and it is just a great home--not just a rental property. It has been meticulously cared for and is waiting for you to make your memories. You will fall in love and will want to come back!

What makes this house unique

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!! With so much to do at Pier Park you don't need to take your car out once you get here. My favorite place is to have a glass of wine at the courtyard swing at twilight and enjoy the fragrant herb and moon garden. Fully equipped with beach chairs and umbrellas.

Best Rental in Panama City!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been renters in the area for the last 28 years. This year we needed a home large enough for our children and grandchildren. We could not have found a more perfect home to rent. This is an exquisite home; I felt like I was in a five star resort. The home is equipped with absolutely everything you could ever need for cooking, relaxing, reading as well as for the beach. We had more than enough room for 8 adults and 5 small children. The owner went out of her way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Thank you Kathy for opening this beautiful home so that families like mine can make cherished memories.

Stunning! Exceptional Location! Best rental I have ever had in the panhandle.

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing in the Destin/Panama City Beach area for almost 20 years. For the last 6 years, we have rented beach front homes through VRBO or local leasing agencies. We only rent luxury homes, and this home was hands down the best to date. The home is beautiful, the location is exceptional, and the owner and staff are phenomenal. But what really sets this home apart, is how well stocked this home is. It was truly like being home. Not the standard couple of towels, 1 roll of toilet paper or paper towels. Food, tons of towels, beach towels, blankets, toys, toys, and more toys, beach set ups, it was just amazing! On top of that, both the owner and team reached out to us during our stay not only to check on is but to apologize for the non stop rain (and offer to take us to dinner!). This home is perfect for vacationers who want to play on the beach all day or just enjoy the scenery from the house. Don't miss this opportunity if it's available during your stay. You can literally park the car upon arrival and not get back in it until it's time to go home. Pier Park is across the street and offers everything a vacationer needs. Stunning, exceptional, vacation heaven!

Dream beach house

  • 5 of 5

This house met and exceeded all of our expectations. All of the details in this house were just wonderful. It was comfortable, not to mention beautiful. We did not leave the house except to go to the beach, where the beach chairs you provided were a godsend. We enjoyed the covered porch every night. The view out of the living room is just stunning when the shutters are open!! Also, having a workable Weber grill was amazing. We grilled five of the seven nights. The location next to Pier Park allowed our girls to wander over to shop or kill some time when they were bored with us.the kitchen had everything we needed so we never even wanted to go out to eat. When we did the location to Pier Park was so close it was a nice short walk so we never had to drive which was great with the traffic on Front Beach Road. The few things that we had trouble with were addressed quickly with the care takers, she even went out of her way to bring us her own crock-pot when we could not find one in the house. We have stayed at several houses over the years and this is by far our favorite. So many times you can tell it is a rental house and this one felt more like a home. We will be back for sure!

Expectations exceeded!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful beachfront family vacation home in Panama City Beach. It exceeded our expectations in every way. My family and I (consisting of 8 adults and 7 children all under the age of 9), have visited various beaches in Florida for our annual family vacation. It was ideal for our 3 generation family. This was our 8th vacation home rental and was, by far, our most favorite. The location is truly perfect…right across the street from Pier Park with an endless supply of dining and shopping and only two houses away from the pier-perfect for fishing!. The view from the back deck is spectacular. The deck is incredibly large with plenty of seating and a charcoal grill. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious and several offer great views of the ocean. The kitchen is well supplied. Not only was there a traditional coffee maker, but also a Keurig with K-cups and creamer fully stocked. We cooked several meals while there and had everything we needed. The laundry room was stocked with detergent. There was an abundance of towels in every bathroom and a basket of beach towels placed by the back door. Every room had more than enough pillows. The property grounds were well maintained. The only thing you need to pack is your suitcase! We have been to several “nice” beach houses, but Kathy truly goes above and beyond with all of the little touches to make it perfect. She was a pleasure to work with. The family is already making plans to come back next summer.

We have rented many beach condos, but absolutely none come close to this one. Not only is the location perfect, the house is beautiful. The owner made us feel special and welcomed. We had six adults and four children (the oldest was 12), and we had more than enough room. You have the feeling that you are staying in the home of a dear friend. We don't usually go on vacation to a place we've already been, but this home is making us rethink that.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

This house is an amazing place to stay. Right across the street from pier park. The house is amazing. The porch is wonderful to spend time on relaxing and every part of the house was immaculate. You are right on the beach. The owners were so easy to work with and so accommodating. We actually had to change some things with our stay and they helped us with no problems what so ever. I would recommend this house to anyone and everyone.
