Holiday Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR + loft, 3.5 Baths, Private Pool! Sleeps 12. Gulf View. Lg Private Sundeck.

'Watercolor' is a beautifully finished Florida Cottage style beach house with a private pool. It is located on the east end of Panama City Beach on Thomas Drive directly across from Rick Seltzer beach park. The three spacious bedrooms are located on the first and second floors. The master bedroom is located on the second floor and has a private balcony. Each bedroom has its own private bath and premium mattress and linens. There is a large 3rd floor loft with a half bath, wet bar, TV, sleeper sofa, and a sundeck with an outdoor dining table and breathtaking Gulf views.

The kitchen is well equipped with custom cabinets, granite counter tops, premium appliances, and all the essentials for lovingly preparing meals for the family. The hardwood floors and decorations make you feel like you're in the comfort of your own home.

This is a great home for one large family or two smaller families that care to share the cost of a beach rental. One king room, 1 queen room, 2 sets of bunks, 2 sofa sleepers, and a large loft area.

If Panama City Beach is your canvas, paint your vacation picture with "Watercolor"!

Easy Access: Thomas Drive has the best traffic flow in the area. During the busiest times of spring break and peak summer weeks, Front Beach Road experiences bumper to bumper traffic. From Thomas Drive you can drive anywhere in minutes without the hassle of traffic.

Shopping Nearby: There are 2 major grocery stores and a Super Walmart within 2 miles. Pier Park is an ideal place for shopping and is only a 10 to 15 minute drive from the house. At Pier Park you will find several major department stores, many outlet stores, specialty stores, unique apparel and jewelry stores, fun activities for the kids, a major 16 theater cinema, and some of the best restaurants in the area.

Fun Activities: Shipwreck Island water park is blast for the whole family in the heat of the summer. Within a very short distance of the house there are several venues for miniature golf, bumper boats, sling shot bungee rides, a Ripley's Believe it or Not, and all the beach activities one could ask for. For the golfing enthusiasts, there are 5 public courses within minutes of the house. Signal Hill is just a mile down the road. Holiday Club is about a 12 minute drive and is a little more challenging. For the best golfers, Bay Point, with its 2 courses is about a 10 minute drive, and The Hombre is less than a 10 minute drive. 'Watercolor' is located in the heart of all your favorite beach activities.

Excellent Stay! Location Location :)

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent. The house is as it appears in the photos although the pool is a little small. You can drive to Pier Park if you want to be in the action but that Location on Thomas Drive offers a relaxing environment with ease to the beach. The home is great for large groups and the loft is perfect for teens who like their independence.

Great House

  • 4 of 5

Great house. Would stay here again. The Beach was a short walk across the street and the house had a lot of things for the 7 kids to do.

Good House for 2 families!

  • 4 of 5

This house worked really well for our 2-family vacation (4 adults / 4 boys ages 8-14). There was more space than we needed, and the kids enjoyed every minute of it. The third floor was great for kid space (complete with TV for video games and mini-fridge/microwave for a late night snack) and made the first floor a quiet adult retreat most of the time. There were a couple of maintenance issues with the house (pool lights and outside electrical sockets were not functional), but they were of minimal concern. As compared to the hustle and bustle of the strip near Pier Park, where we spent our vacation last year, this location was a welcome change. With a cross walk right in front of the unit, getting to the beach was a breeze. Even though it was a public beach, the facilities were well maintained and it was not as crowded as the resort beaches we have experienced in the past. Previously, you had to be down at the beach by daybreak to reserve your spot or else you were 3 rows back and could not see the kids in the water. There was not a day that we made it down to the beach before 10 am and we were able put up our canopy right in front every day. The kitchen is well stocked with every appliance you could think of and the owners supply dish and laundry detergent as well as plenty of towels so that you do not have to do laundry every day. We look forward to renting this place again in the future.

Very impressed. Great location. Great house

  • 4 of 5

I was very pleased overall with our stay at the house. I think the pictures on the website were very accurate in showing what the house was really like. For s beach house the furniture in the living room was still pretty nice. Large table. Decent kitchen. Beds weren't the greatest and the bedding was dated. Enough linen was provided. Pool area was nice. Great table and a great number of chairs to lounge around the pool. Grill nice. Carpet needs replaced in rooms but the tile in main areas was nice and clean. Park across the house was great beach access and close enough to walk too.

My family and I LOVE this property so much that we plan to return every year! If you are looking for a GREAT Gulf experience and not the "craziness" of a touristy area (or party central) then this is the spot! Great restaurants close by, beach right across the street, & breath taking views from the rooftop deck..... A W E S O M E

Awsome House

  • 5 of 5

We came up here for a family wedding and we loved this house. My grandsons were so excited to have the beach across the street and the air hockey table upstairs. Coffee on the upper deck in the morning was awesome with the views and the breeze. The house was great, we were so comfortable, our large family fit so easily and we enjoyed the house. We will plan to come again!!
