Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, sleeps 6

Discover Laguna Beach, Florida! Just west of Panama City Beach, our relaxing townhouse condo is at the quiet end of the beach where you will find miles of uncrowded beaches! It sleeps six comfortably in two bedrooms. Each bedroom has a bath and there is also a half bath on the first floor. We really enjoy the outdoor enclosed shower where you can rinse off after a great day on the beach. The full kitchen has everything you’ll need and the open dining and living area are very spacious and decorated in colorful beach style.

Located about 100 yards from the beach (across the street and 2 houses back), you can enjoy the partial ocean view from the upstairs balcony. The two public beach access walkways lead you to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! We don’t have a swimming pool, but who needs a pool when you have the crystal clear waters of the Gulf.

Guest Comments: 'We just returned from a great vacation at Laguna Beach. This condo was perfect! We had plenty of room, it's a short walk to the beach and having 2 1/2 baths was very convenient. We definitely plan to go back next year. '

The Watson's, Cumming, GA

'We have rented this condo for 6-7 years in a row. It is in excellent condition and just a short walk from the beach. It is close to many attractions and conveniently located near a large Winn Dixie grocery store. The owners are wonderful people and I'm confident you will have the vacation of your life.'

'This is a great condo in a great location. The beaches here are absolutely breathtaking! Be sure to check out the Carousel for the best selection of wines anywhere! It's a short walk down Front Beach Rd.. We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation!'

About R. Whittlesey (email preferred)

My condo at Laguna Beach has been in our family for over 25 years. My parents bought it as it was under construction and included many custom touches. At that time there was nothing on the beach side and we had an unobstructed view to the ocean. We've seen it grow up over the years, but we still love it because it is so close to the beach, and it is our home away from home. I purchased it from my parents in 2004 and did a lot of renovation and upgrading.

We love going to the beach, and these beaches are the most beautiful in the world! The sound of the waves and the beautiful turquoise green water is so very relaxing. Add a cool beverage and a fishing pole and you just can't beat it anywhere! There are several places nearby where we enjoy eating out, but our favorite thing to do is to get some fresh seafood from the local seafood market and cook it up at the condo. We have many friends in the area and we usually end up with a house full to join us in the seafood feast.

We get so many positive comments from our guests who enjoy staying there as much as we do. Just one stay will tell you why!

Why R. Whittlesey (email preferred) chose Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach is at the west end of the beaches and is considered the quiet end of the beach. There are mostly single family homes and some condos (but nothing over 4 stories high). There is only one hotel and there are no high rises. This makes for a beach scene that is family oriented and uncrowded.

We had to leave super early but the owner was very understanding about the hurricane/gas issue. This is our third...but not our last stay. This is a twice a year at the least kinda place :) Very clean, very comfortable and very relaxing. My favorite place ever!

Clean and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was within easy walking distance of the beach. It was our first visit to Laguna Beach and we enjoyed it. It isn’t as crowded as Panama City, but still close enough to visit some of the restaurants.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here several times before and always have a great experience. The property is comfortable and well maintained, and the A/C works great (it was really hot outside). The location is excellent... quiet and away from all the high-rise condos, but just a few minutes dives away from Pier Park, etc. The beach was fantastic with a nice breeze and beautiful water. The property owner is responsive and always very easy to deal with. Can't wait to stay here again.

This is the “panhandle” of Florida - the northwest section of the state. It is easily accessed from any of the southeastern states by car or by plane if you are traveling from farther away. The Panama City International Airport is approximately 20 minutes away.

It’s a short drive to the Heart of Panama City Beach where you’ll find newly opened Pier Park stores and restaurants, Gulf World, Shipwreck Island Water Park, St. Andrews State Park, Shell Island, and golf at Hombre & Holiday Courses. The Frank Brown Recreation Park is about 5 miles away with many activities happening year round. For shopping, there are many beach shops,Target, Walmart, as well as beach antique and gift shops. Outlet stores in Destin are about 45 minutes away. Nearby grocery and local seafood stores make grocery shopping a breeze.
