FABULOUS GULF FRONT TWO BEDROOM TOWNHOME WITH PRIVATE BEACH

Portside Resort Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Overlook the turquoise gulf and magnificent beaches from the deck of Sailfish 3, our tastefully appointed two-bedroom, two-bathroom beach house. It has stunning panoramic views of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and can comfortably accommodate six people. Relax in the sun on your 200 sq ft deck, or step down onto the sugary, white sand in relative privacy. After a day on the beach and a famous PCB sunset, relax in comfort in the open-concept living-room and watch television or a DVD on your 40” LCD wide-screen TV, or listen to music on the iPod compatible stereo system.

If you've had enough sun, there are great places nearby to golf, play tennis, and shop. Across from the City fishing pier is Pier Park, a huge new shopping complex that is home to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, a Grand Theater, and hundreds of stores and restaurants, all within a 4 minute drive. Sailfish 3 is also minutes from grocery stores, pharmacies, and the Beach Visitor Center which has all the information and maps you may need. For those who enjoy dining out, there are a number of excellent local restaurants, including the Boar’s Head, a nearby favorite.

Back at Sailfish 3, you have a fully-equipped, open kitchen in which to cook, mix drinks, and entertain guests. Upstairs, you’ll find the two bedrooms share a two-room, en-suite bathroom/powder room, and each has a private balcony. The beachfront bedroom has a king-size bed and a flat-screen television, while the other has a very comfortable queen-size bed. There are also two private parking spaces right outside your door, ensuring no parking problems or waiting for elevators to unload your shopping or get to the beach. All you need to pack is a beach towel, your personal belongings and a sense of adventure. We're sure you'll love your stay at Sailfish 3, and like many of our guests, return year after year. Whether you stay for a few days or a few weeks, Sailfish 3 has everything you’ll need for a wonderful vacation.

Jacqueline (Jac) and Peter are a retired couple of Canadians who have been coming down to Panama City beach since 1979. Peter was the Dean of The School of Design and Visual Arts at a Canadian College, and Jac ran a catering business while raising four boys.

Jackie and Peter purchased this townhome in 1990

We loved Panama City Beach at first sight, and bought Sailfish 3 in 1990 as a Winter haven for our Dad, and use by family and rental guests the balance of the year. It has provided us and our four children and large collection of friends and extended family, many many happy holidays over the ensuing years.

We are salt water lovers and sometime beach bums, we love the parks in the area and enjoy going out nearby, bird watching. The beach is a great spot to watch glorious sunsets, Dolphins cavorting in the waves, and wonderful night sky watching. We love the nearby oyster bars and restaurants, and the fine wine offerings from the Carousel just down the road. We have played most of the Golf courses in the area, and you can often find our wives and their friends in Bealls (Bells) shopping for clothing bargains on a Monday morning. We guys think we can cook and our wives let us, knowing they can do it better.

Going Back

  • 5 of 5
My wife Mother in Law and I plus our Little four legged Buddy Rudy stay their last Sept the owners are great they will and do bend over backwards to take care of you every need with in there power for your vacation stay.Now Townhouse clean and large very well taking care of. Now the outside in the front you have two private parking spot that marked for you and we really like that as we only had one car we took up both sites that way no one can beat your doors in now to the backside and that was my favorite spot we loved setting out on the deck with big umbrella sitting in chairs watching listening to the ocean. Beach time how great it is to walk down a few steps and your toes are in the sand your not a few hundred from the beach your on the beach with Private fence with sea-oats growing all around you.If you get up one morning and don't want to cook any time that day breakfast lunch or supper theirs a great little restaurant about block east of townhouse a very easy walk to a place called Mikes to eat not fancy but good and a lot cheaper than a lot of the well name places.But what we like about this place the best was no standing and waiting for elevator walk right in front or back no fighting or running down a buggies for your suitcases .Yes i gave it a five star but on the down side if you have to have a pool and loud music and be elbow to elbow with each other this might not be the best spot for you but if the only noise you want to here is the waves and lots of beach space this the place for you.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5
We are actually still here while I write this review. Love the location. The house is spacious and very comfortable. It's very quiet here and love sitting out on the spacious deck watching the water. We also love the upstairs waterfront balcony in the evenings. My little cockatoo is very comfortable on the back deck just laying in the sun. Great location in a quiet part of the beach yet minutes to all the action. We are having a wonderful relaxing time.

Owner's Response: I think the positive responses we get from guests like Mary are as much a reflection on them as us. They invariably treat our home with care and respect. Thank you, Jackie

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
Sailfish was the perfect getaway for our family of four as well as our Lab Yogi. My wife and I had such a relaxing time and the house had everything we needed. Our two teenage daughters loved how close the beach was to the house as well. Right down the steps and you're there! The townhouse was perfect for us and we felt at home the moment we walked in the door. This was the first VRBO home we rented and were a little nervous but Peter and Jackie were very accommodating and made the whole process seamless. Thank you both so much! We're definitely coming back!

Owner's Response: Although we have never solicited reviews, we're delighted when we get them. We were a little unsure how being pet-friendly would work out at first, but we (and our housekeeping staff) have never had a problem since we started managing our own rentals. Thanks largely to our great pet-owning guests. Thanks Greg. Jackie and Peter

Vacation with our dog, Lucy.

  • 5 of 5
The kitchen was awesome, it made me want to cook. The deck was so nice, we stayed on it mostly. And Lucy, loved being able to run in the little yard. It was so nice to not have to kennel her. The beds were so comfy. The bathroom was somewhat outdated, but decorated well. Thanks and hope to be back next year!

A great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found the place as nice as the pictures show and more. I would like to thank Shannon and Pete for all they did. Amie was a big help in suggesting restaurants and so was Shannon. My husband and I enjoyed the ocean from our deck. It was so relaxing and soothing. I would recommend this place to anyone. I will be staying here when I visit Panama City Beach. Thanks again!

My wife and I found the condo really nice and clean. We had a wonderful time and would recommend this property to anyone. We found Shannon to be very prompt, friendly and helpful. She recommended some restaurants in the area. Amie also recommended Bayou Bills crab house. We found the food to be great and our waiter Clayton really gives good service. The view of the ocean each morning with coffee was relaxing and soothing. We will be staying here each time we come to Panama City Beach. Thanks again for everything!
