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!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing beach condo! The location was absolutely wonderful with the beach just outside your back door. Everything was very clean and very well equipped! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a relaxing beach getaway to stay here! There was nothing overlooked. The owner makes you feel welcome and checked on us during our stay! Very nice family experience!

Clean, comfy & cozy for a family of four

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo. My family had an amazing time. The only complaint and it's minor because we were on the beach most of our stay, was that there needed to be more sofa seating. The bedrooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. The kitchen was small but had everything we needed. We have already recommended it and would stay again if in the area. The condo community is just perfect. There were no crowds and we met a few owners of condos during our stay and they were all so nice. The beach itself is beautiful and there were so many awesome shells! We were there for the 4th of July and the fireworks visible from our condo were amazing!

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!

Wonderful Vacation Home

My family came to Panama City Beach, FL for a week vacation and we had an absolute wonderful time. This location is perfect! Not too many people but still very close to everything you would need. Everything was clean and well put together. I would definitely recommend and consider staying here again!

*** 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.
