3 Master Suites w/King Beds & Bonus Loft! Pool and Steps from the Beach!
FIND FAMILY-FRIENDLY LUXURY at STARFISH STATION!
Beachfront-type Access without Beachfront Prices! Take a few quick steps across the 2-lane street and down a shady boardwalk to the white sands and warm clear waters of the Gulf. You can be in the water in under a minute! Our home offers much quicker access than oceanfront condo highrises...no waiting for the elevator to stop at every floor and then wandering out through the crowds to find a spot on the beach!
If you also demand a pool on vacation, we have that too! The pool is fully enclosed within a tropical fenced and gated courtyard, complete with a lanai and gas grill.
The West End of Panama City is quiet (even in the middle of summer) and upscale, similar to the neighboring communities of Carillon, Rosemary Beach, and Seaside. There are no high-rises or hotels within miles. But if you want to take a break from lazy days on the beach, boutique shopping and exciting nightlife is just 7 miles away at the brand-new Pier Park.
Starfish Station is FAMILY FRIENDLY! This is the perfect home for young families or extended families vacationing together. We have all the luxuries and amenities the adults deserve and everything the kids need without having to lug it with you...including games and toys! The house has three kids' Aerobed mattresses and a pack-and-play plus a space-saver highchair and monitor.
The house has been completely renovated with brand-new high-end furnishings and luxury linens. The bedrooms and bonus room have gleaming hardwood floors while the living area and kitchen have tile flooring. The house has three large King-Sized Master Suites--no more wondering who gets the "good" room on vacation or having to share bathrooms! Starfish Station easily sleeps 10 plus children.
There are 5 TVs at Starfish Station so noone will miss their "must see" shows. Each bedroom features a new LCD flat panel TV. If nothing's on cable, watch a movie on the DVD player in the living room or on the DVD player upstairs in the bonus room. For "surf-aholics" or those who have to do a little work on vacation, we offer free wi-fi access (it's a great connection even out by the pool-we've tested it!!).
Walk in the front door (for your safety, the house utilizes a keyless lock system) to an inviting living/dining area with a queen pull-out sofa bed and a gas fireplace for chilly nights. The dining area leads to a fully-equipped cook's kitchen and a side hallway with a SECOND REFRIGERATOR, front-load washer & dryer and a 1/2 bath. There is also a side door entrance here with a private hot/cold outside shower just outside the door. Walk on through the open living areas to the downstairs king-bed master suite (with its own full bath). The downstairs bedroom also has a door opening directly to the lush courtyard pool area.
The second floor has two more king-sized master suites, each with generously sized private baths. Both suites also have private balconies; one overlooks the tranquil gulf waters and one overlooks the pool area.
The third-floor bonus room is perfect for the preteen and teen set. It is equipped with two twin-sized fold-out sleeper chairs and its own TV, DVD player and mini-fridge. It also has a perfect and very private sunbathing balcony overlooking the Gulf.
We DO NOT rent to those under 25. We rent to families and adults only. We do not allow pets or smoking. These rules are strictly enforced and monitored.

My family and I have been traveling to Startfish Station for 5 years. This is the only vacation spot that my 5 1/2 year old daughter has ever known. This year we had more people than every staying at the house (7 adults and 2 kids) and we still had enough space. The bedrooms are very spacious and the eagle's nest area ended up being the "princess tower". I wasn't sure if our little girl would be comfortable up there, but she had a great time having space to herself. We have this trip down to a science. Everything you need is within minutes of the house (grocery stores, drug stores, shopping, great dining and more). Rosemary Beach is a quick 5 minute drive so you get to enjoy this great community but not pay the inflated prices. Pier Park is 7 minutes from the house and has dining, shopping, and rides for all ages. The owner, Gary, is great to work with and everything is clean and kept up to date. We love this house so much that we have already booked our vacation for next year. Our plan is for our daughter to grow up going to this wonderful house. It shouldn't be too difficult because she thinks that it is "her beach house".
This will be year 3 to stay here. I don't think we'll ever stay anywhere else in FL!
Owners are awesome to work with. House is clean, child friendly, beach is a 2 min walk across the street, pool is clean and never crowded.
This house is perfect, great pool right out the back door of the house and beach right across the road from beach access, it is the section of Panama City that is away from all the crowds but close enough to go to anywhere we want we went to Pier Park and it was only a 5 minute drive. The house has great bedrooms with each its own bathroom great balconies, Gary was great to work with, and answered all my questions We have been going to the beach for 25 years and have stayed at a lot of places but this by far is the best place we have ever stayed even the grown children and grandchildren agreed and wants to go back next year THANKS GARY YOUR THE BEST
This was our second time staying at Starfish Staiton. The house was perfect. Traveling with a 2 year old is not easy, but the owners have thought of everything. The location is perfect. With the beach outside the front door and a pool out the back door, our daughter had trouble deciding which to do first. The house is clean and well stocked with linens. Grocery stores are close for the last minute things that you tend to forget. Pier Park is a quick drive. The house is down removed enough from the center of PCB that you aren't competing with people for a spot on the beach. The owner has put a lot of thought into their home and it shows.
Our stay was amazing. The house was beautiful, spacious and VERY clean. It is right across the street from the beach. The pool was beautiful and well kept. We especially loved it because it was away from all the Panama City Beach nightlife and craziness. It was a very relaxing trip. The owners were very helpful and friendly and we got our security deposit back quick.
We just recently used this home for a week and can not wait to go back. We have three young children and the location of this house can not be beat. The pool was also a huge help with the kids. There isn't a negative thing I can say. Everything from the fact that each bedroom had its own bathroom, the great views from the loft area, the fact that everything we needed was right there, the courtyard with pool and grill...everything was perfect!!! Thank you very much.
