This was not our family's first visit to Panama City Beach but it was our first time staying at Summer Towne #1. This home is located across the road from the beach but has three access point within 200-300 feet in either direction.
The home itself is not brand new so there is some wear and tear but overall it was in great shape. Everything was clean and in good working order. The private parking and ease of unloading and loading was a huge plus for us.
This home is also pet friendly which was great. It is within walking distance of the only pet friendly portion of the beach that we found. Our pup loved hanging out on the balcony and sniffing the beach air.
Location wise it is just about perfect. It is within walking distance of the pier, shopping and several good restaurants as well as a few box stores for buying groceries if desired. Because there is mostly homes nearby the beaches are not packed like near the high rises so you have room to stretch out and enjoy the sun.
The only thing to note is that you are provided with one garbage bag and one roll of toilet paper in each bathroom. So you will want to bring some extra as well as paper towels.
