My wife, two (10 and 13) sons, our puppy (Chester), and I are so glad we found this home to rent. The home is filled with the feeling of comfort and calm. The bedrooms, lounging and eating spaces are all incredible. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the views from the windows are breathtaking. The bathrooms are clean and conveniently located, with plenty of towels and great water pressure in the showers. We enjoyed making and eating meals together, sitting in the dinning nook, looking out over the bay. I love grilling, and while I am a charcoal guy, the wonderfully well kept gas grill on the back deck overlooking the bay, has almost converted me!
My family and I often took the short walk on the dock to the bay, and enjoyed fishing or playing on the small beach close to the house; and when it was time for the real waves, we would walk across the street to the Gulf of Mexico! When we were a little restless, we would go into Panacea (what a name) -- and have a lovely meal, as fancy or as casual as we liked (we chose casual). There is a place to pick up grocery in Panacea, and there is also a great little spirits store, Two Blondes, where the cashiers are super friendly and are willing to give good advice on everything from family-fun outings to great fishing spots.
In short -- if you have been stressing out at work (as we had) and your kids are sick and tired of being sick and tired of school work (and ours were) and your puppy is being....well, a puppy; do yourself a favor and get away to this quiet, rustic comfortable space where you will feel as thought you have returned to a place you somehow forgot existed...but you'll never forget again!
Linda is charming and very easy to work with. Her attention to detail, and care for her home and her guest shows in aspect of this remarkable place.
Thank you Linda!
