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:

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 Laguna Beach

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!

Really enjoyed it!

It would be very difficult to be situated any closer to the beach/gulf. The views are spectacular and we look forward to our return!

Perfect location and accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This is the most perfect location and accommodations for a stay at the beach if you really go to be on the beach. You really can walk out the living space into the sand. Very few steps to the water. Everything about this place is great and the owner is quick to communicate by text. Highly recommend this place. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Perfect beach front town home!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be making this our annual place to stay when visiting this area. The views from the master bedroom and living room were absolutely stunning. We stayed here with four adults and two toddlers and found it so convenient. There was no need to pack snacks to take to the beach because you were literally just steps back in to the kitchen. We had brought sand toys but soon found out there was no need for them. The owner had toys, umbrellas, floats, beach chairs, etc. The owner was very friendly and very prompt returning my text. It was really liking renting from a family friend. She made sure we had everything we needed. My family and I had the absolute best experience.

*** We prefer E-Checks (Electronic Check Payment). However, we accept most Credit Cards.

1) $250 Confirmation Deposit is due immediately to confirm reservation dates, & is refundable. Rates are subject to change until confirmed. Upon Check-in, the Confirmation Deposit converts to the Damage Deposit, and is fully refundable, approximately two weeks after cleaning and inspection, for normal wear and policy/regulations/agreement adherence.
2) VRBO fees (service fees) are due immediately and are paid Directly to VRBO when booked. These fees are NOT paid to me in any form. Effective February 2016 & forward, VRBO began charging "Service Fees" ranging from 4-9%, that are paid directly to VRBO at the time of "Online Booking". Normally, the VRBO service fee averages, approximately 6%. Per VRBO, this is a lower percentage than many other vacation rental sites that charge a similar fee. The exact amount of the fee is calculated by VRBO on a sliding scale based on the total amount, excluding taxes and the refundable damage deposit.
