NEXT DOOR TO PIER PARK AND RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE BEACH!

Summertowne House Rental Photos and Description

Great beach home at a great location!

Be one of the first to book in this newly acquired Summer Towne beach cottage!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!

Walk to the uncrowded beach, pool, pier, dining, shopping, movies and Aaron Bessant Park. Blink and you’re at Frank Brown Park. It’s a quick drive to the airport, too.

Extensive recent upgrades including all new living room furniture, LED TVs (60-inch in living room!), high-speed internet, blu-ray DVD with smart apps and WiFi, comforters, and pillows.

We have stayed in a wide variety of homes and condos over the years at Panama City Beach. At Pier Fun you won’t have to wait 20 minutes for an elevator. You won’t get to the pool in the morning to discover that towels have claimed every chair. You won’t get down to the first floor and discover that your family can’t enter the pool or the beach because someone forgot their resort bracelet. You won’t have to choose a spot on the beach where you can’t even see the Gulf because the beach is so crowded. You won’t be kept up at night by noisy neighbors above or below. You won’t have to waste 15 minutes every time you need to get in and out of your parking space. And, most importantly, if you choose, you won’t have to move your car at all because you’re right in the heart of everything!

Not only is the location great, the home itself is great! The upstairs is an open floor plan with a balcony with views of the ocean. Each bedroom has its own full bath.

Learn from our mistakes. Stay at Pier Fun in Summer Towne and have a low-stress vacation!

About Rita and Greg Backstrom

After making annual trips to Panama City Beach for over 20 years, Rita and Greg are thrilled to realize their dream of having their own little piece of paradise. As a child, Rita enjoyed visiting PCB every year with her parents. Once she got married it became a family affair. They love to travel but nothing compares to the world famous white sand beaches of PCB! They look forward to having you enjoy it as much as they do!

Rita and Greg Backstrom purchased this house in 2013

Why Rita and Greg Backstrom chose Summertowne

What is more important is that this place is everything that I don’t hate:

I’ve been coming to PCB every year since I was a child. I’ve stayed in a wide variety of places over the years. At Pier Fun you will not have to wait twenty minutes for an elevator, you will not get to the pool in the morning to discover that towels have claimed every chair, you will not get down to the first floor and discover that your family cannot enter the pool or the beach because someone forgot the mandatory resort bracelet, you will not have to choose a spot on the beach where you can’t even see water because the beach is so crowded, you will not be kept up at night by noisy neighbors above or below you, you will not have to spend twelve minutes each time you need to get in and out of the parking garage and most importantly, if you choose, you will not have to move your car at all because you are right in the heart of everything!

Learn from our mistakes. Stay here and have a low stress vacation.

What makes this house unique

Not only is the location great, but the home itself is great!

The upstairs is an open floor plan with a balcony with views of the ocean and each bedroom has its own full bath.

Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We rented Summertowne cottage for Labor Day weekend and we were very pleased with the home. We had plenty of room. There is a great view of the beach from the living room upstairs. We enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this home.

Great value and location, friendly and helpful owners

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family party included preschoolers, teens, and adults; everyone agreed that this house was a great find. It was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The three floors and three bedrooms allowed us to spread out and have privacy when needed. Walking to the beach, the nearby pier, and Pier Park was easy, even with the little ones. The third floor balcony was almost always occupied since it was a great place for people/car watching or soaking up the ocean views. Communicating with the owners was easy, both before and during our stay. The comfortable space, fair price, great location, and conscientious owners made this a 5-star vacation for our family.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely perfect!! We have been coming to PCB for over 30 years and this by far was our most favorite place ever! My (adult) kids are insisting that we never stay anywhere else. The house itself is amazing, the walk to the beach is less than most condos located right on the beach. There is not a more convenient place to stay if you enjoying going to Pier Park. It is also right next to the dog beach which was perfect! I do not have one negative thing to say about our stay at this amazing property. When it's time to plan next year's vacation, I will not look anywhere else! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful home, it is truly PARADISE!

Great owners, beautiful house and great location.

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house and it couldn't be in a better location. Right across the street from the beach entrance, a pool right behind the house and Pier Park a block away. The kids (17 and 19) loved that they could just walk to Pier Park to get an ice cream or grab lunch and gifts for their friends (everything you could want is there). You can walk to get groceries at Winn Dixie, Walmart or Target. The house has everything you need and the owners were great. Anything we needed they were just a quick text message away and very responsive. A million things to do in the area. We rented a pontoon one day and jet skis another. www.adventurespcb.com was great and had great online specials.

Great location

  • 5 of 5
Perfect for families with older kids since the mall is a block away and the beach is across the street. Younger children staying in nearby rentals seemed to enjoy the pool as well, also very conveniently located behind the property. Could tell that it was pet friendly, which is what we initially looked for (we have dogs but ended up not bringing them). We also loved the bike paths that were easily accessible in front of the mall. Owners are awesome with communication, making payment hassle free, and prompt deposit return. Would definitely recommend/book again.

first time visitor to the area.

  • 4 of 5
Our first time to the area and unfortunately it was spring break.But that was our poor planning, not the fault of the owners. The home was very nice, Three levels so keep that in mind if you have problems getting up and down stairs. Beds very comfortable and the view from the top floor is very nice.
The check in /out procedures are very complete and easy to follow. The location of the home is right across from the beach and also close to a huge outdoor mall with every shop imaginable. Also a large park area and places to walk dogs is also close by.
