We really enjoyed our week-long stay in early August. Everything was just as we had hoped. As other guests mentioned, the private pool and washer and dryer are big pluses. We usually had the beach to ourselves, except for a handful of people.One of our favorite places was St. Andrew`s State Park. We never made it over to Shell Island, because we enjoyed fishing off the piers and swimming and snorkeling at the protected beach near the jetty so much.Caught tons of fish, and saw a tremendous variety of wildlife, including the gators on the airboat ride. Thanks for the chance to enjoy your home and Panama City beach. Also, thanks to the family that left the beach umbrella too !!!
