---- UPDATE: NO DAMAGES FROM HURRICANE MICHAEL ---- "Anchors Away" is a 1944 square foot, pet friendly, Southern Coastal Decor Villa with easy beach access. It has 3 levels, 3 bedrooms / 3 baths with Gulf of Mexico views from the second and third floors. "Anchors Away" is part of an exclusive beach townhome community featuring 10 three-story "Villas" which are centrally located for guests who want a great Panama City Beach location with easy walking access to shopping, dining and the beach.
"Anchors Away" is a five star / very highly recommended rental by travel agents for its location, beach access, amenities, size, cleanliness and affordability. It accommodates up to 10 guests but is also perfect for 2, 4 or 6 guests who want a beach town house with privacy on each floor for your friends and/or family. "Anchors Away" is perfect for guests who want luxury for their Winter retreats, vacations, romantic getaways, special occasions, shopping weekends, concerts, sporting events or Honeymoons. ***During the off-season, potential guests may receive a discount if only 2/4 guests will be renting Anchors Away or seeking extended vacations.***
It has an open floor plan with 9, 10 and 12 foot ceilings allowing coastal breezes to flow throughout the house. Each floor has privacy for large family or friend events. Each room is decorated with a nautical theme ideally suited for the Panama City Beach atmosphere.
The third floor master bedroom has a king size bed, queen size sleeper sofa, ensuite bathroom and privacy balcony. The second floor guest bedroom has a king size bed with ensuite bathroom. Each second and third floor balcony is covered to enjoy the Florida environment without the sun and heat.
The second floor kitchen is fully stocked for gourmet chefs with granite counter tops, bar and dining area for guests. The second floor balcony has additional dining for guests. The second floor living room has a queen size sleeper sofa for guests. There is a high definition television located in the living area. The second floor balcony is mostly used for dining al fresco or just enjoying the breezes and views.
The first floor has a complete efficiency apartment with a queen size bed, full kitchen, inside dining area (4 guests) full bath and sliding doors to a private patio set up for outside dining. The first floor privacy patio has a charcoal grill for outdoor grilling.
Each bedroom has wifi and high definition televisions with video libraries. The first floor living area is recommended for family members with limited mobility and/or guests with pets who may need some play time at the beach.
The "Villas" swimming pool is steps away from the front door and guests can relax downstairs near the pool while sipping their favorite beverage or read a book while having their morning coffee on the second floor or third floor balconies and watch the activities by the pool. Regardless of your choice, the pool is perfect after a day spent on the beach with the family and your guests.
I have supplied beach wagons which make it easier to transport your gear on the beach. This beach gear includes skim boards, body boards and 10 beach chairs. All these supplies are out your back door for your beach vacation. I have also added in 2018 several beach games (corn hole, ring toss and bocce ball) you can use on the beach for your family fun in the sand when you need a break on shore. ***As of August 18, 2018, any newly booked reservations will have free use of a two person ocean kayak and surf board during their rental dates and available for their beach fun.***
"Anchors Away" has been reviewed by travel agents and guests for cleanliness, location, value and fun. I have only received Five Star reviews from these agencies and my guests. It also has been recognized for my pet friendly atmosphere at “Anchors Away.” Some of my guests like to walk their pets for their morning and evening workouts but I have also supplied beach pet fencing for laid-back pets which allow your pet some privacy for their out door times. This pet fencing can be used off the first floor rear patio and green area where you can have your favorite beverage and watch your best friend relax. In doors, I have provided pet gates to keep your best friends on a certain level of the house. The balconies are great for your pets to people watch but please do not leave them unattended if they are teacup size and adventurous.
Due to a need for luxury and affordable beach venues in Panama City Beach, I offered "Anchors Away" as a beach getaway so my family and friends could have a wonderful place to relax with their families and bring their pets if desired. Since then, I have received over 90 five star reviews on my HOMEAWAY and VRBO sites. This house is gorgeous and the location is only a short distance to Pier Park for shopping and restaurants or Frank Brown Park for baseball, softball or concerts. I really love this property because Anchors Away is centrally located for all your beach activities to include the Shipwreck Water Park, Thomas' Donuts, Sandbar Grill and Dusty's Bar and Grill. I encourage all my potential guests to research our area and my house. Through VRBO and HOMEAWAY you can see the exact location of your vacation getaway with their Google Earth finder located at the bottom of the web page of the house you are interested. My house is near beach access # 65 ( approximately 100 yards) which all my guests use to enter the beach. I have tried to take the guess work away from my potential guests so they can rest assured that they will have a dream house for their beach vacation. This is my home-away-from-home and I try to make sure it will be yours too for this vacation and many returns.
In 2018, Anchors Away now has a free concierge service that allows my guests to have a 24/7 point of contact during your vacation.
We are also near the beach dog park at Pier Park and Frank Brown Park ( about .20 mile) where you can stay all day on the beach or at the park with your pet. Also, our common grounds are not fenced so everyone can have access to our green areas. There is a non-refundable $75.00 pet fee required by my HOA so please pay that prior to your arrival. Remember, our pets always need a vacation with their family so do not leave your best friend behind and bring them to Anchors Away.
You will have a great time at Anchors Away and make family memories that will last a lifetime. Sincerely, Jo.
