Overview

About the property

Oceanfront Townhome, Park at Front Door, Backyard Patio Directly on Sand & Gulf

Our back yard is right on the sugary white sand, and in the highly sought after "West End" of Panama City Beach! Park your vehicle right outside the front door of our Townhome. Walk directly to the back door slider and onto the Patio, and then directly onto the sand to squish between your toes and catch some sun-rays and gulf breeze. When ready for a dip, walk directly from the patio to the sand, and then directly into the beautiful emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico! You'll be in a very safe, quiet, family oriented area, but yet close enough to participate in as many activities as you would like.

If you decide to take a drive, it's only about 6 miles to the Frank Brown Park, where ballgames, concerts, and other activities are held on a regular basis. If you feel like going to Pier Park, it's only about 7 miles to enjoy shopping, restaurants, concerts, fishing off the Pier, and a wide range of other events. If you feel like golfing, it's only a short drive from our townhome to great golf courses: the Holiday Golf Club - 9 miles, the Hombre Golf Club - 12 miles, and the Signal Hill Golf Club - 13 miles. The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is only about a 25 mile drive from our townhome.

For Bikers and Bike lovers, we're conveniently located a few miles from Pier Park, the Harley Davidson Dealership, and the Indian Dealership, for the upcoming events during Thunder Beach week. There's normally a great display of some of the beautiful bikes at Pier Park.

Upcoming Thunder Beach dates:

October 25-29, 2017

May 2-6, 2018

About Gloria McGowan

My family has lived in Panama City, FL for over 80 years, and we were very fortunate to grow up frequenting the beach when visiting our grandmother. We often go to Panama City Beach just to be in the salt air and walk on the beach. We enjoy watching the dolphins play and the fish jump in the water, shopping the fantastic retail and outlet centers, eating a wide variety of wonderful seafood, and, watching the deep sea fishing boats come in with their catch for the day. These are just a few of our favorite things to do!

Gloria McGowan purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Gloria McGowan chose Florida

We sold our last beach place because there were too many steps to reach the front door. Then, we found and bought our beach home at Pirate Cove Villas, as we knew it would be perfect for us! It is on the quiet and highly sought "west" end of the beach. The location is safe, family oriented, and has quick and easy access to as much or as little activity as you would like. It is so nice to park at the front door, and walk directly into the Townhome from the parking lot. We also enjoy having our beachside patio directly on the sand. The sound of the waves is extremely relaxing and the view is breathtaking! Nearby, there are restaurants, grocery stores, a bank, and other shopping. Just down the road are the Sunnyside Grill, Thomas Donuts, and a place to rent kayaks or bicycles. It is also only a 10-15 minute drive to Pier Park, three very nice golf courses, 30 minute drive to Destin, and 15-20 minute drive to the International Airport.

What makes this townhome unique

We love our Beach Home at Pirate Cove Villas, because the location is amazing, and it is a perfect retreat for family & friends to unwind and rejuvenate. It is our home-away-from-home and is where wonderful memories are made! Our home on the beach is a sweet distraction from the normal day-to-day activities of living!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay! It was the quiet side of PCB. The condo was cozy with plenty of room for our family and a beautiful view of the beach which you could access by walking right outside the patio door onto the white sandy beach. Very nice and we plan to revisit next year!

Absolute tranquility!!

  • 5 of 5

This beach home has everything. There is no parking garage or elevator hassles, instead you park right at the front door and the beach is two steps out the back door. The home is fully furnished with all the accessories of home. There are no high-rises in the area so the beach is not crowded. The owner is extremely gracious & accommodating, allowing early check in when possible. There is a big closet full of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, etc that the owner allows guests to use. I love everything about this place & can't wait to return.
