About Valerie "Val" Blaser
Hello, and thank you for considering our villa! We love it and Val manages it for us. We have been married for fourteen years and have two girls. We are a family of divers. I am PADI Certified Master Diver, and my wife, and our oldest daughter are both PADI Certified Divers. Our youngest is excited to get her diving certification, as soon as she is old enough. Until then, her favorite thing is to be "co-captain" on the Steel Slinger dive boat, during the dive charters.

Why Valerie "Val" Blaser chose Panama City Beach
Are you a diver or a golfer? This villa is embedded in the Bay Point golfing community, with two full golf courses, and the Pro Shop is just walking distance away! Val, our property manger, is an avid golfer, lives in Bay Point, and can help with all your golfing needs. Since we are avid divers, we dive with the guys at Panama City Diving, and their charter dive boat, the Steel Slinger, is docked directly behind our villa. You step out of the back door of the villa, and in approximately 55 steps you are on the boat! The folks at Panama City Diving are all amazing people, excellent diving instructors, and great friends. Pat and his crew run a fantastic and friendly shop. Most are expert/professional spearfishers and can teach you as well. There is even a very nice fish fillet/cleaning table on the dock beside the boat. They are also family friendly and always do all they can to take care of us and make sure we have a great family experience. This property is "almost like" a live aboard dive ship. You can: wake up in the morning; load the cart with your dive gear; walk to the Steel Slinger for a day of diving; grab dinner at Bricks & Barley next door; get a nights rest; and do it all again the next day, without ever getting into your car! There is excellent shore diving and beaches at the jetties at St. Andrews State park. We provide a family pass for free access to the park. You can enjoy the beautiful gulf side beach, or the waveless "kiddie pool" beach on the jetties side. You just nave to walk over a sand dune to go from one to the other. The park is on the other side of the lagoon from the villa. You can actually see it from the dock behind the villa. As the crow files, it is a mile or less from the villa, but, unless you swim across the lagoon (don't recommend that) you have to do the few minute drive to the park, but it is extremely close.
What makes this Villa unique
You can also do shore diving in the jetties at St. Andrews State Park, which is only a couple of minutes drive away from the villa, or one mile "as the crow flies," and has amazing beaches! You could probably swim there from the eastern edge of Bay Point, since it is just across the lagoon. St. Andrews has many things to offer: shore diving in the jetties; full surf gulf facing beach for regular beach activities; the "kiddie pool' beach, which is sheltered from the surf, and is shallow, so it is perfect for children; another shuttle to shell island; pavilions for picnics; nature trails; fishing; a general store; and even an alligator pond. We provide a family pass for St. Andrews State Park, and the pass stays in the villa. We dive more than we golf, but the Nicholas and Legends courses on property are beautiful, and there is a lovely clubhouse, with pro shop, and restaurant, only walking distance from the villa. Val, our property manager, is an avid golfer, and can help you with all your golfing needs. There are also Publix (with pharmacy) and Winn-Dixie grocery stores only a couple of minutes away from the villa, just off Bay Point property. Thanks again for considering our villa! Enjoy your vacation!

Great communication with unit owner
Owners were upfront about hurricane damage in the area and the renovations being done at the marina. Unit was very clean and the AC works well and gets real cold. Owners were very easy to communicate with. I would stay there again
Thank you so much for staying with us and your kind words. We look forward to you staying again soon. Val:)
Great location; convenient to marinas and beaches
Enjoyed our stay
The apartment was well setup for a terrific week - wish we would have had better weather. Thanks to the owner for watching out for us from getting situated upon our arrival to ensuring we had what we needed throughout our stay - we would do it again. Look forward to coming back when things have recovered - so sad to see the destruction after the hurricane.
Best of everything
Great time was had by all
Thank you so much! Look forward to you coming back!
We really enjoyed our stay!! We loved the area & condo, it is very peaceful and relaxing!!
Thank you so much! We look forward to you staying again!
I can’t say enough about this gem! The villa is very roomy and cozy. It had everything we needed. We loved going to the pool at Flip Flops and relaxing. It was a short drive to St. Andrews to enjoy some beach time too. In fact, it’s a short drive to anywhere you want to go in Panama City. Jon was great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be staying again!
Thank you so much!
