About Clarissa Zimmermann
Co-Owners of Lazy Zone Vacations of Panama City Beach, we set out to design, build and manage the vacation properties that we were never able to locate on our travels with friends and families. FL Northeast meets Northwest and somehow end up in the South! We currently call GA home but are hoping to migrate sooner rather than later, work and lifestyle permitting. Both of us currently travel for work so our hope is to someday spend a bit more leisure time enjoying the PCB/30A area when we do have down time. In the meantime, we want to share the fruits of our labor with you in hopes that you will enjoy what we have lovingly designed as beautiful and functional vacation rental properties. Having spent so many years traveling for a living as well as for fun, we wanted to design properties that made sense and maximized the functional space. So many properties are built like regular houses without attention to detail when it comes to what people really use and need in their weekly vacation rental. I think you will agree that our effort to make these houses some of the most spectacular properties in the PCB area will pay off and you, the guests, will get to enjoy them as much as we do!
Clarissa Zimmermann purchased this House in 2015

Wedding Venue Review - EXCELLENT!!
This a fabulous beach house! The pictures do not do it justice. This home is beautiful and supplied with everything needed to make our stay a spectacular vacation. We had our amazing wedding reception at both of these houses September 16, 2017. With the wooden partition opened made the perfect atmosphere. We could not have picked a better location. A lot of family and friends flew in from out of town and there was plenty of room for them and the entire wedding party to spread out and be comfortable. The decks were beautiful and a great place to relax enjoy the spectacular view! Everyone was blown away by the gorgeous beachy and unique decor in both houses. Plus the perfect location right across from the beach, what more could you ask for! A great home away from home :)
The owner is terrific, making sure before, during, and after that we were completely satisfied and everything was perfect for our stay. Clarissa was always friendly and very quick to respond to any questions we had. She also happened to be in town the same weekend and let us in the houses early so we had plenty of time to set up and decorate. She even came back during our stay to help with the pools lights and offered us string lights to use for the reception.
The overall experience was surreal. So many great memories were made on this trip we are already planning to come back for our anniversary!
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
Congratulations again and thank you so much for the kind words and review of our homes! I am thrilled that the wedding went off without a hitch and all of your planning and hard work was a success! You all were wonderful to work with and even the cleaners said that if they didn't know there was a wedding they would have had no idea because there was no trace of the festivities upon your departure. They wanted me to let you know that they also appreciate it. ☺️ You all are welcomed back any time and feel free to send photos of the wedding and those beautiful decorations. I would love to see how it all turned out after I left. Best wishes to both of you!
This gorgeous home exceeded our expectations!
After pouring over many potential VRBO vacation properties, our group selected this vacation home and we couldn't have been more satisfied with our choice.
We had a large group (8 adults, 10 kids) and booked the entire house. Both kitchens were fully stocked with dishes, cookware, and great appliances. We did a lot of cooking in the home and never came up short on space or functionality. The rear patio and pool area was another great spot for meal prep, complete with charcoal grill, plenty of countertop space, a small fridge and a prep sink.
The house is conveniently located, easy to get to, and provided ample parking for our four vehicles. With the beach right across the street, our cars stayed parked for much of our vacation. It helped that there were several eateries and grocery stores just a short distance away.
The property owners were very attentive to our needs and extremely helpful in making us welcome in their property. We didn't have any issues that needed resolving or other reasons to reach out to them, but they checked in with us periodically to make sure everything was going great and to extend an invitation to contact them should anything come up. That made us feel relaxed and well taken care of and we appreciated it greatly.
All in all, this was definitely a five-star experience for us. Our group highly recommends this property and we would definitely consider staying here again.
Thank you Casey! We always appreciate feedback from our guests and are so glad you were happy with your choice to stay at Double Down. We also thank you for taking the time to submit your review for other guests to make use of in their search for a property to meet their needs. We hope to host you all again on future trips to PCB!
We LOVED the home so much!!!
We were more then impressed with the home!!! From the pics and reviews I fairly certain I was going to be happy with the house.... but all my family absolutely LOVED IT, even more then we were expecting too!! It was beautiful, had such a nice layout for a big group like we had. (my parents, my 9 siblings, several brothers and sisters in law, plus our babies) It was so perfect! Also had LOTS of parking room! We also travel in lots of cars, and I believe at one point we had like 10 cars/trucks in the driveway and it fit!!
The kitchen as very well stocked. I never remember needing something and not being able to find it. We were very pleased it, and LOOOOVED the expresso maker! We used that SO much!
Beach access was amazing!!!! You walk out your front door, across a really little two lane beach rd, and you had a walkway right there to get across to the beach. There was a volley ball net set up right there on the beach too, which we had a blast with!!
Two grocery stores, less then 5 min away. I think they were only like 1 mile. You could go to them on a golf cart! WinnDixie, and Publix!
The only thing I would say is if you're coming with little ones and worried about sleeping and finding the most quite room, the downstairs is pretty loud, just people walking around upstairs and walking on the stairs... we had a white noise sounds machine turned on really loud and it never seemed to wake up my baby, so I was happy about that... but all that to say, maybe sleep on the 2nd or 3rd story if you're worried about noise!
25 Family members agree.. Double Down is 5 stars!!
This property is beautiful, impeccably clean, well stocked and located in an area that feels like a quaint beach town. Clarissa was the perfect host, she was quick to respond any questions and even checked in with us mid week. The teenagers loved the third floor and the families with young children settled in on the ground floor! We will definitely book this property again and the adjoining property as well!
Wonderful family vacation
We got home last week after spending the last week in July in Panama City Beach. The house was great. We are a three generation family of 14. There was lots of room for everyone. Lots of bathrooms so nobody ever really had to wait to shower. The kitchen was well stocked. The pool is a little small but because we were only steps away from the beach, it was not a problem. We really only used it for short term relaxing when we had a few spare moments. All in all Double Down is a great house. If we decide to go back to Panama City Beach, it will definitely be the place we stay.
Even better than the pictures!
Fantastic. Pool is small but there's a beach across the street.
Offering the best of all worlds, just to the west is well-known 30A and the beautiful beaches of South Walton. If the beach is why you came, you won't be disappointed. If walking 15 steps to the access boardwalk is your idea of a perfect beach spot, then this is the place you want to be! Our property has not just one but two public beach access points (89 and 90) literally across the street. There are no high rise condos or hotels on this stretch, no commercial traffic and limited public parking so you will have the beach practically all to yourself!
Need to shop for supplies, grab some cash from the ATM, get a mani-pedi, enjoy dining with gators...All of of that and more is available just 1 mile to the west of us making your stay a vehicle optional if you wish to park it and leave it. Just down the block is a fantastic locals place called Sunnyside Café offering casual dining or a great place to sip your first cup of morning coffee before you cross the street and get your toes in the sand.
Just 2.4 miles to the east, an easy bike ride or scenic walk along dedicated beach if you choose, you will come upon two of the more famous Laguna Beach landmarks. Carousel Supermarket is a not-so-hidden gem offering one stop shopping for locals and guests, high quality groceries, packaged liquor, and the largest wine selection in PCB. Having a craving for something sweet or the best breakfast sandwich along the beach? You will want make a pit stop at Thomas Donut and Snack Shop. Get there early for the best selection and be sure to buy a few extra donuts for later, you will be glad you did!
Famous Pier Park with all of the restaurants, stores, dog-friendly beach and fishing pier are a mere 10 minute drive so there is never a shortage of activities no matter what your group wants to do.
For anyone looking to enjoy all that PCB has to offer but without the crowds, there is no better place to be. We like to call it 30A East because you get all of the benefits of being so close but without the higher prices and all of the action of Pier Park nearby but without the crowds and traffic! It is a perfect little oasis in the heart of it all!
