VERY SPECIAL! BEAUTIFUL POOL,GULFVIEW,1 MIN WALK TO BEACH,NEAR 30A--BLUE TURTLE

Laguna Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

The Blue Turtle offers 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, plus a 3rd-floor Crow’s Nest with views of the Gulf. With parking right by the rocking-chair front porch and a bedroom/bath on the main floor, it’s perfect for those avoiding stairs, elevator delays, or parking lot hassles.

We recently renovated this charming villa in fun coastal colors and decor inside and out. As you enter the front door, you’re greeted with a cheerful coral living room opening into the dining area, Ladies' Dream granite bar, and upscale kitchen. 10-foot ceilings and tiled floors add to the open, spacious feeling. Also downstairs, you have use of a laundry room with full-size washer and dryer. A tropical-green bedroom (queen) and seashell-motif bath comprise the downstairs guest quarters.

On the second floor, you’ll find warm, hand-scraped, wooden plank floors reminiscent of vintage ship cabins. The soothing seafoam-green master (king) comes complete with writing desk, TV, sunset balcony, and bath with walk-in shower. The periwinkle guest room (queen), with TV and separate bath, overlooks the neighboring stucco homes and palm trees.

Up one more floor, you’ll discover a whimsical, lime-green Crow's Nest with two twin daybeds, trundle bed, mini-fridge, bar sink, large Gulf-view windows, and a half bath.

The courtyard, pool, and garden areas are enclosed by a tall privacy fence. Through the gate from the front porch, you’ll find a convenient shower to wash off sand and seawater before entering the pool or the house. Lounge chairs, outdoor dining table with umbrella, and potted tropical plants surround the pool. Rest awhile under the garden palm tree in our one-person hammock swing. A stone terrace beyond the pool connects the patio with a wooden catwalk that zigzags through the landscaped backyard, past a hammock, to the side deck outside the laundry room. From there, a brick path takes you to the stone terrace and garden with hammock that adjoins the front porch.

Cable TV, high speed internet, and DVD/Blu-ray are available for your use.

Whether you long to nap in a chaise by the pool, stroll along the beach collecting seashells, share an alfresco meal on the patio, or curl up on the couch with a book, you’ll enjoy your time away at The Blue Turtle.

Michael and I have been in the remodeling business all our married life--Michael as a contractor and Project Mgr, and me as designer/administrator/miscellaneous crew. Though I'm actually a teacher and writer, I've always helped out with Michael's business, and we've both been hands-on with this project too.

For nearly 30 years, we dreamed of having a place on the beach, and we're thrilled to finally make that a reality. We've had fun fixing up The Blue Turtle, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Teresa Bagwell purchased this house in 2011

We settled on this area because of the amazing color of water and cool, clean sand. Being close to an airport and so many charming beach towns and parks to explore made it all the more perfect.

With miles and miles of bike paths both east (along Hwy 79) and west (along 30A) of our home, biking is a favorite past time. We especially enjoy taking the bikes to the Watercolor community and exploring all the boardwalk paths and bridges winding throughout the area.

With our interest in construction, looking at coastal architecture is great fun, and there's lots to choose from since each little beach town has its own flavor.

For something new, we're anxious to branch into kayaking. Besides the coastal lakes, there are some pristine crystal clear rivers to explore nearby. That's something we're really looking forward to.

And of course, we love beach walks, shell-hunting, and sunsets, and you just can't beat what we have right across the street.

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Turtle provided an excellent vacation spot for my family. The house was immaculate when we arrived and everything is laid out nicely. The pool was great, clean and clear and just the right temp for cooling off. The beach is only a 90 sec walk away and Front Beach Road is never that busy. The proximity to the markets was great, there are also many restaurants within a short drive. There is something for everyone, from the pool to the beach to the relaxing porch upstairs to the cool, comfy furniture in the living room. The Wifi was enjoyed by all for their Ipads and smartphones. The weather was perfect and everyone left relaxed and talking about 'next year's trip.' We have stayed at several locations on the FL coast and the beach here was the cleanest, both the sand and the water. This was a truly great trip for my family, no one had any negative comments, except when it was time to leave ! I would definitely recommend the Blue Turtle to a friend and my entire family thoroughly enjoyed it.

PERFECT FOR OUR MULTI-FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
“The Blue Turtle” was just as described. We stayed June 21-28, 2014. We loved how it was decorated and it was very clean. The shells in the glass containers were beautiful. The grandparents stayed in the bedroom downstairs. The bathroom was just outside their door. My husband and I stayed in the queen bedroom on the second floor with attached bathroom. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law stayed in the king bedroom, with attached bathroom and balcony. The tv/dvd player in each room was great. The kids stayed on the 3rd floor with the trundle beds. It was a little crowded for them and it was just a half bath. They loved having their own little refrigerator. If you only had two or three children you would have plenty of room. We had 5 kids. Two sleep on the same bed. The kitchen had all the necessities. The oven did take a while to preheat. The laundry room is on the lower level and was very useful for us. The living room had plenty of space and comfortable seating.
Now to the outside, the pool was amazing. We all enjoyed! Plenty of seating and just the perfect size. The garden area is beautiful. We used the charcoal grill twice while we were there. We used the beach cart and chairs provided. We were able to park three vehicles in front of the house.
It was only a short walk to the beach with a public access just across the street. The beach was beautiful and not crowded. We always had plenty of space on the beach and the water to ourselves.
The communication with the owners was great. She was always prompt responding to emails. She sent us detailed instructions on check-in and check-out and some things to do in the area. We enjoyed the booklets in the house with restaurant menus and things to do. There is a Winn-Dixie and Publix just a few minutes away. We ate at the Bayou Bills down the street and it was very good. They have a pool with around 9 live alligators outside their restaurant. We also recommend the Wicked Wheel, it was delicious. Thomas Donuts is also a few miles down the street and they are worth the wait! Get there at 6:00 or you will have to wait in a long line. You do have a 25 minute drive to get to the main strip, but being in the residential area is worth the drive. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend staying here.

Our beach trip at The Blue Turtle in Panama City was about as perfect as you can get. The Blue Turtle is located in such a convenient spot, right across the street from the beautiful beach in a quiet area but yet close to restaurants with delicious seafood, great shopping, grocery stores, pharmacies and much more. There is something for everybody. Not too long in the future we hope to go back with both of our children and our granddaughters. The Blue Turtle has beautiful decor with a warm, relaxing atmosphere and you can relax in the private pool right outside the door. I highly recommend it!

THE PERFECT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
When we are tired, desirous of peace, needing a break, fun for all, we go to the Blue Turtle. This is a well equipped, beautifully decorated, comfy home. The lovely pool is a place for swimming, reading, and relaxing. Everything has a unique touch of love. Quiet and serene, but close to the beach, the Blue Turtle has everything you need for a fun time at the seashore. This one is a keeper! Can hardly wait to go back.
