About Jan Bates

I am about 75 yards to the most beautiful beaches in the world. It's nice going to the beach, but also nice to come home to a beautiful space with your own private heated pool.My home has many luxury things than most rental homes do not have. . My realtor friend describes my house as a house you would want to live in and not just vacation. It's very homey with all the extras of a real home. Come try it out, I know you will love it.

Jan Bates purchased this house in 2005

Why Jan Bates chose Panama City Beach

I bought in Panama City Beach because I think there is an abundance of things to do with a family here and the beaches are some of the whitest beaches in the world. There are many restaurants close to my house - J Michaels is my favorite and many locals go here. Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville at Pier Park and Andy's Flour Power for breakfast are two other good ones. Excellent golfing here and many great fishing tournaments. I love being able to walk across the street and be on the beach. I still have an ocean view from the 3nd floor but nothing like walking in the sand.You are right across the street from the beach. I also like biking thru St. Andrews park which is right down the street. Here you can put your boat in and boat over to Shell Island.

What makes this house unique

It's nice having your own private pool when you come in from the beach. I have a shower on the front porch and one in the back by the pool. I have many beach lounge chairs around the pool. There are 5 bathrooms in this house, two being on the first floor. This is really nice when coming in from the beach, too. The house is an open floor plan , kitchen , dining and living room is one big room. The bedrooms all have their own patio off of it. This is nice in the morning when you want to have coffee in the quiet times. All the bedrooms have a bathroom in it with double sinks. This is nice for saving your marriage. Ha! Ha! Enjoy my lovely home.

Always a great stay and easy to rent!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished my third stay at Jan's CREW REST STOP and I can't stop saying great things about my stay. From the time I get a copy of the contract until I stay and get my deposit back, it is a pleasure working with Jan. And I can not forget the wonderful house and the great views. I live in Chicago and it is great to enjoy the beach and sand or the private pool and the weather. Keep up the great work Jan I will be back next year as well. I have been telling all my friends about the great stay!!!

BEWARE Potential Renters!!!

  • 1 of 5

Experienced major difficulties with owner. Although we have documented proof, the owner denies that prior to arrival, the property was listed "For Sale" after signed contract w/full payment. House worn inside/out and very dirty upon arrival. Many amenities listed were filthy, rusty and unusable as on-line pics are very deceiving The following items required cleaning before using: washer/dryer, stove contained food items, trash cans filled to capacity, bed linens, blankets, quilts and pillows. Pool very dirty as well. Was not cleaned until second week.Third floor "trundle bed" was a disgrace....no mattress covers, sheets, etc. Extra bed in master bedroom is nothing more than a sponge on top of a wicker basket. The damage deposit withheld despite the lack of a substantiated letter listing the "alleged" damages as prescribed by Fl Law. For example, there was watermelon juice left in the fruit tray, dirty stove however, we purchased and left a griddle, sprinkles on the floor and claimed that a pot was ruined even though we never used it....normal wear/tear. No proof of the property damage protection purchased by owner before our arrival despite numerous requests since we paid her for the coverage. Although requested, no explanation as to what the cleaning fee paid for since the deposit was withheld for "cleaning". After 25 years of renting throughout military service, never experienced such a "scam" to add an additional monies!! Renters, especially out of state renters be aware of this as it is not financially worth the money and time to pursue legally. Owner will not return texts despite numerous attempts. Overall, very disappointed with property and embarrassed when visiting friends asked why we "slumming". Owner did not welcome us upon our arrival but did text message frequently and badgered us during our stay to insure we put out the trash. Additionally, she hired a tree trimming company to trim a palm tree next to the pool while we occupied the property. Knowing that the owner experienced some personal issues that she shared prior to our arrival , we decided not to bother her with these issues/complaints and enjoyed our stay just the same. Despite the difficulties with the property, Panama City Beach is well worth the effort to visit. One final comment, throughout the visit, we often wondered if we were being monitored by the outside cameras even though we did not do anything questionable during our stay.

Great House, Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed August 6-11, 2016 with 4 adults and 3 dogs. We usually come to PCB in a group of 30; my sisters and all our families. But this year, my daughter was unable to be off from grad school when the rest of the family wanted to travel, so for this trip it was just my daughter, her boyfriend, me and my husband. Since the rest of the family couldn't come, we wanted to bring our dogs, since they have never gone with us to the beach.

I can't say enough about the house. It is very nice, clean and has everything needed for a beach vacation. I am an infection control nurse, and so am a bit over the top about cleanliness, and the house was fresh and I didn't feel the need to go over everything with Lysol wipes like I do when we stay at Edgewater Beach Resort, which is where we usually stay.

All the bedrooms are their own little sanctuary, with tv, ceiling fans and attention to decor. The master on the first floor was perfect for my husband and I who travel with too much stuff to haul up stairs! The master shower is great, and the walk in closet has plenty of room for clothes and suitcases. The house is full of books, and so is my idea of heaven!

The pool is perfect and the area is safely fenced so my dogs could sit with me in the shade while my daughter and BF lounged in the sun. Not that we saw much sun while we were there; it rained everyday, but we did have one beach/pool day, so I can't complain. We enjoyed chilling around the house, watching the Olympics, reading and surfing the web. We shopped at Pier Park, saw a movie, cuddled our dogs, and had great meals out every night.

Wednesday night, my daughter and her BF met up with her college roomie in Destin, so my husband and I went to Fireflys, at Jan's suggestion. It is a lovely restaurant with wonderful service. After the meal, we took the golf cart to the beach to see the huge waves. It was a double red flag day, and we'd never seen the ocean so churned up. Very exciting, but a hard day for officials who pulled lots of people out of the water who apparently thought they could ignore the no swimming flags.

I brought chairs for the beach, which were not needed, as the house has a ton of chairs, toys, floats and a beach wagon to take them to the beach.

Jan was so easy to work with and so gracious. I hope we can return soon to her awesome beach house. She has obviously furnished it with much love and care, and takes pains to ensure the property is kept up. Highly recommend!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first trip to Panama City Beach. We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very nice and just close enough to the beach that you could get away from the crowd. We had nine people (three adults and six kids) and there was plenty of room for everyone. We ate out one night but cooked there the rest of the week and it was nice. Felt like we were at home with plenty of space to lounge. We even had a small issue with the air conditioner due to a tripped breaker from a storm and Jan had someone out to fix it within a few hours of our call. Thanks so much, Jan!

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from our week stay and loved it here. Awesome home to spend our family vacation in. We had 6 adults and 3 kids. Plenty of room for all! Well kept and just a short walk to the beach. Used the large wagon to pull our beach toys. It worked great! The pool was great, we were in there several times a day. The gas grill provided a nice change from eating out! plenty of nice loungers around the pool too. The washer and dryer was greatly appreciated. And also loved being away from the busy part of PCB but close enough to still enjoy all the great restaurants, activities and shopping. Definately worth it!

Nice location. Delightful vacation home with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Nice size bedrooms and 3 full baths and 2 half bathrooms. Great location. The home is like walking in to your own home. Warm and comfortable. The pool and golf cart was an extra bonus. The owner was available for questions and very helpful. I would rent this home again and again.
