About Jan Bates

I am about 75 yards to the most beautiful beaches in the world. It's nice going to the beach, but also nice to come home to a beautiful space with your own private heated pool.My home has many luxury things than most rental homes do not have. . My realtor friend describes my house as a house you would want to live in and not just vacation. It's very homey with all the extras of a real home. Come try it out, I know you will love it.

Jan Bates purchased this house in 2005

Why Jan Bates chose Thomas Drive Area

I bought in Panama City Beach because I think there is an abundance of things to do with a family here and the beaches are some of the whitest beaches in the world. There are many restaurants close to my house - J Michaels is my favorite and many locals go here. Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville at Pier Park and Andy's Flour Power for breakfast are two other good ones. Excellent golfing here and many great fishing tournaments. I love being able to walk across the street and be on the beach. I still have an ocean view from the 3nd floor but nothing like walking in the sand.You are right across the street from the beach. I also like biking thru St. Andrews park which is right down the street. Here you can put your boat in and boat over to Shell Island.

What makes this house unique

It's nice having your own private pool when you come in from the beach. I have a shower on the front porch and one in the back by the pool. I have many beach lounge chairs around the pool. There are 5 bathrooms in this house, two being on the first floor. This is really nice when coming in from the beach, too. The house is an open floor plan , kitchen , dining and living room is one big room. The bedrooms all have their own patio off of it. This is nice in the morning when you want to have coffee in the quiet times. All the bedrooms have a bathroom in it with double sinks. This is nice for saving your marriage. Ha! Ha! Enjoy my lovely home.

Always a great stay and easy to rent!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished my third stay at Jan's CREW REST STOP and I can't stop saying great things about my stay. From the time I get a copy of the contract until I stay and get my deposit back, it is a pleasure working with Jan. And I can not forget the wonderful house and the great views. I live in Chicago and it is great to enjoy the beach and sand or the private pool and the weather. Keep up the great work Jan I will be back next year as well. I have been telling all my friends about the great stay!!!

Dream Vacation with an awesome home and a super helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

Jan is a wonderful owner who was very easy to talk to. Her home is very clean and well maintained. Actually one of the best I have rented. We had 17 guest staying and had ample room for all. The private pool is just the icing on the cake. The 75 yards to the beach was a pleasant walk...not bad at all, the beach was amazing. Her home is also located in a family friendly area; very close to St. Andrew's Park and to Capt. Anderson's Marina, which we enjoyed both of these areas. Thanks to Jan my daugthers and their children plus and close family of friends have so many great memories. I would come back in a heartbeat. Thank you Jan for sharing your home with us and showing me so much of the area, taking your time to do so means a lot to me.

Life Saver

  • 5 of 5

Jan was a life saver. My mother passed away and we had actually rented another home near Jan's. Our time ran out at the other house and I still had things to take care of before returning to Atlanta. I looked up rentals on VRBO and found Jan. she was so gracious and immediately told me where her home was and told me to come over and see if it would work. I did and it was more than what we needed but because it was in January she gave me a great deal for three days. My grandson absolutely loved the closet bunk beds. We had to watch Bednobs and Broomsticks every day in the bunk house. Jan ,Thank you again for understanding and being so nice to my family during this time and yes we will be back and also thanks for tip on the great shopping in St. Andrews.

Great time in Jans Crew Rest Stop

Had a wonderful week spending our family vacation at Jan's Crew Rest Stop. LOVED the house and location. It was so nice being close to St. Andrews Park. Jan is so easy to work with. The bedrooms are very nice and roomy. Grandkids loved hanging out at the pool and the short walk to the beach. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us Jan.

Wonderful Beach House Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were looking to get away to the beach for a week of rest and relaxation. We certainly found it at Jan's beach house. It is beautifully decorated and just so very comfortable!! All amenities are top notch. Some days we decided to hang by the pool....then decide to hop on the golf cart and head to beach....which is just across the street. We had such a great time and working with Jan was a breeze. We will definitely be back! Thanks, Jan!! :)

I stayed here with my 3 adult children and their families. We had an awesome time! The beds were comfortable and the home is fully stocked with all you need (except you supply your own paper goods). The owner was easy to work with and gave us all our deposit back! Loved it!
