Originally from Austin & San Angelo Texas.

We live on Panama City Beach, about 4 miles from the rental house.

We enjoy being outside, scuba diving, wake & snow boarding, playing air hockey & foosball.

We love our neighbors and they take good care of us as we try to take good care of them

Katherine Burk purchased this house in 2005

This was my primary residence nine (9) years ago. I had long term renters in it from 2008 - 2011. I refurbished it from top to bottom & turned it into a weekly rental for 2012.

In Jan 2012, we refurbished this home into the weekly rental.

Remodel finished Feb. 14, 2012

The sun sets on the backside of the house which is a bonus if you like to hang out in the garage and BBQ, visiting with great neighbors and listening to the lions roaring at sunset as well as the monkeys, baboons and peacocks at dinner time.

It's quite the experience to hear a lion roar while cooking BBQ in the garage!

Great Week!

A group of friends and I just graduated from high school and planned a senior trip to PCB. This house was one of the few that rented out to 18 year olds so that was a huge plus. The house was clean and fit all ten of us comfortably. It was close to the beach, clubs, and other attractions. It was away from the noise but close enough to everything. The weather was awful when we stayed so Katherine even let us stay an extra night for FREE! The neighbors were extremely nice and welcoming. They gave us an insight on what to do and restaurants eat out at. The checkout procedures were easy. We didn't have to worry about cleaning or anything. Overall, it was a great week despite the weather! We're already planning on coming down again next year!

Owner's Response: Wow, that's one of the best reviews to date.. We felt the pain of all the rain too as our family lives 3 miles from our rental home. I couldn't stand seeing them leave the day before a wonderful day. So we comped the extra night and I believe they enjoyed it to the fullest!!!

Although the response was posted directly from our client, the website said I said it which isn't true. I can't wait to have them back next year. My neighbors complimented them because they were so courteous and kind. Full refund of deposit, day after check out. I think we all were pleased!

Great Beach Getaway

My family got together for a summer beach getaway and after much deliberation we chose this property and are glad we did. The living area actually feels much bigger than the pictures lead on. There was plenty of room for our group of 8. We used the extra twin mattresses and placed them in the living room with room to spare. The kitchen is not big but that did not turn out to be a factor during our stay.

The garage space was fun and we used it on several occasions to eat and hang out. The second fridge in garage was also a big plus, great for holding extra drinks, watermelon, etc. The location was excellent, it was very close to the beach, the grocery store, other shops, several golf courses, etc. We rented a few bikes from the local shop and it was an easy ride down alison ave to the beach each day.

The house is in great condition, and is much more up to date than most of the houses we looked at in the area. The owner is VERY responsive which was a huge plus. I would definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Wow, what an outstanding group and were even going the extra mile on little things. It's so nice to walk into your rental after guests check out & the maids have not had much time to clean up and the house was basically normal. No big wear & tear! Full Refund that day! I would love to host this group again and referrals are always appreciated -- anytime!!!

Our stay here was amazing. The house was perfect and Katherine showed us a tremendous amount of hospitality. The beach was only minutes away, as well as the major clubs, Wal-mart, many restaurants, etc. The neighbors were also very friendly. We played music all day long and didn't receive one complaint which is unheard of. I don't have one bad thing to say about this place except for the fact that I didn't know how to work the Dish network remote for the TV haha. Overall, this play was great though and I would highly recommend it to any and everyone. Our group consisted of 10 college students ages 20-22 and we had a blast. You don't want to miss out on this deal, I guarantee it!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having this group. Full refund for their deposit the day they left and they even stayed over an extra day, which was almost impossible for most bookings which require SAT-SAT stay only.

Being flexible with clients is key! I strive to have great renters & return guests. You can recommend my place and know they will be taken care of.
