NEW! LUXURY GULF VIEW HOME, 3 KING BEDS, BUNKS, POOL, 99 STEPS TO BEACH WIFI!

Thomas Drive Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

This beautiful three story beach house is just a few steps from an almost private section of beach! Enjoy a view of the white sugar sand beach and glorious sunsets from the second and third floors. Perhaps you would prefer to lounge around a private pool, instead. The house is located in a lazy laid back neighborhood of private homes on the beach. At the same time, you are 5-10 minutes away from all the best restaurants and shopping.

Friends of mine once said that when they go on vacation, they want to stay somewhere that is nicer than their own home. That is exactly what we have tried to accomplish with this totally elegant Beach House. Purchased and decorated for 2012, this place has all the bells and whistles. Every bedroom has a King size bedroom suite. The two built in bunks have deluxe pillow top mattresses. There is a full sleeper sofa on the first floor and a queen sleeper sofa on the second. This is a perfect set up for two or more families.

Be prepared for luxury from the formal dining room with fireplace as you enter, to the 12 foot ceilings and magnificent crown moulding throughout. Granite counters grace the well equipped kitchen as do the stainless appliances. Watch your favorite shows on either of the two 55” LED screens or enjoy your show from the comfort of your bedroom.

On the second level you will find what we like to call the family suite. There you will find a large family room, including a wet bar and half bath. The built in bunks make this like a fourth bedroom. There is a large balcony overlooking the private pool. The second floor bedroom has a king bedroom suite with bath, balcony and large HD LED TV.

The third level has two king bedrooms with private baths. The Master Suite is adorned with a fireplace, a Jacuzzi tub and a spacious shower. A private balcony off the Master is a great place to enjoy warm moonlit Florida nights. The second bedroom has a beautiful Tropical King Bedroom suite for your comfort. Here you will find the best view of the Gulf through large windows that span two sides of the room. Both bedrooms are equipped with a large screen TV’s.

Other Amenities: Private Pool : Washer/Dryer : Wireless Internet : Free Long Distance : Cable TV : Central Vac : Parking : Keyless Entry

Prime Location: On the quieter end of PCB on the much desired beach side of Thomas Drive. A hundred steps down Albacore Street and you are on the beach... no crossing busy streets to get to the beach. Only 3 miles from St. Andrews State Park and walking distance from several restaurants and amusement parks.

Sorry, NO pets allowed. Must have someone over age 25 to stay in the house.

This is our one and only vacation home. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. We are from Tennessee and hope to enhance your visit with good ole warm Southern Hospitality. Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay better. Feel free to call us when you arrive to let us know how everything is.

Bill Shaffield purchased this house in 2011

We know you will love the house location. We have been visiting PCB for 25 years and have always wanted a place on or near Surf Drive. We love the little sixties style motels and beach homes in this peaceful little neighborhood. It is like walking back in time to a more innocent era. Hopefully, you will have an opportunity to meet some of our great neighbors. Feel free to speak when you see them... they like that.

There is more to do than sunbath or walk on the most beautiful beaches in America. We enjoy riding our bikes around the neighborhood. There are lots of practically deserted streets to ride on and bike lanes all over the county. We also bring our jet skis and go out on the gulf to watch the dolphins. Don't forget to keep your eye out for a manatee while you are on the beach. They are quite friendly creatures. Susan loves the great shopping at Pier Park and Panama City. There are several dive shops Thomas drive if you like scuba diving. I have snorkeled on the jetties at St. Andrews Park. There is some good bike riding in the park as well. PCB is becoming more and more popular for motorcycle riding. I like riding down through Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe to Appalachicola. The oysters come in on the boats right there and most of the restaurants serve them up fresh.

There is plenty of entertainment for everyone. Shipwreck Island Water Park, miniature golf, a half dozen golf courses, charter fishing, para sailing, boat and jet ski rentals, and more.

Beautiful home with all the amenities needed for a comfortable week and much needed relaxation!!

  • 5 of 5
This house was amazing!! It was very spacious, 3 bedrooms, two queen sleeper sofas and a bunk bed, 5 bathrooms, full kitchen, pool, and had everything that you could want in a vacation rental to be comfortable, prepare meals and relax. The ocean is not far and you do not have to cross any busy streets to get to the beach which is really nice because it is semi-private and it was not crowded at all. The swimming pool for the kids was a added perk for when it was getting dark or for the smaller kids that couldn't enjoy the ocean fun as much. There is an outside water spicket and shower to rinse all the sand off of you before you go inside to help keep the sand outside instead of inside. The homeowner went above and beyond what he had to do with some items that were furnished such as pack and play, baby gates for the stairs and giving us ideas on places that were really good to eat or visit in the area. We couldn't have asked for better. The house is close to all the area attractions and there were a lot of options on things to do. Our family enjoyed Gulf World and swimming with the dolphins, Adventures at Sea pontoon rental and parasailing. We went to Schooners and Hammerhead Fred's for dinner and the food was fantastic and had something for everyone including the picky eaters. The rental process went really smoothly and was easy to get payments and signed documents to and from the owner. When it was time to go we wished that we could stay as I am sure that everyone feels that way, it went way to fast!! I would recommend this house to anyone and have already been sharing our experience and the house information with others that are looking for vacation rental to accommodate their families. This house really has it all!!! Will definitely be returning there in the years to come. The only thing that might bother some people is that the front of the house is along a main road but we did not have any trouble and we had a group of 6 adults and 7 kids who's ages are 1, 5,6,8,9,13,16 and we had absolutely no trouble at all. The kids were able to go out the front door and walk down the side street and was literally 100 feet to the sand with no worries and no trouble at all. All in all the vacation was wonderful and to short lived.

Owner's Response: What a pleasure it was to meet this group, especially since they are return renters. Getting to know people like this is one of the perks of being the owner. Great folks!!

We appreciate the great review. I will let my cleaning crew know that you commented on their great cleaning job. I understand you enjoyed using the limo golf cart for the week. Mr. B tells me you had a great fishing trip as well.

We look forward to seeing you next year!

We had a blast in this beautifully decorated amenity filled home. Owner is a great guy. We had to contact him with questions regarding the tv and he responded quickly and on Easter Sunday. We would definitely rent again.

Spring Breakers 2014!!

  • 5 of 5
The Albacore was absolutely beautiful! We had such a wonderful time!! This home accommodated 2 families with four adults and six pre/teenagers with plenty of space for all of us. The Albacore was furnished with all of our needs and then some. The photo's are exactly what the property looks like, very clean, well maintained and decorated beautifully. The area had many options for dining, shopping, entertainment, night life, and most importantly 100 steps to the beach! Started our day with a run along the ocean and ended them with the beautiful sunset on the beach! Bill was a pleasure to work with, he answered all of my quetions and was very helpful, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay or person to deal with. Thank you Bill! We can’t wait to come back!

An AMAZING Thanksgiving!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had an AWESOME visit to PCB for Thanksgiving!!! The Albacore House is LOVELY!!! Each and every detail...the decor is beautiful, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped with nice cookware and utensils. This vacation home is warm and inviting!!!

We enjoyed being steps away from the beautiful Gulf...
Black Friday shopping was an ease, we were only minutes away from The Pier Park Outlets...the location is GREAT...we also enjoyed the bikes provided by the homeowners!!!

Mr. Bill is an AWESOME homeowner!!! He was extremely helpful from the very first conversation until we checked in!!! We really enjoyed every moment of our visit to PCB!!! We will definitely be visiting the Albacore House again!!!

Cheers!!!
