Townhome, 3 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 10)
About Vicki Bougan
Hi! We are former Colorado residents who relocated in July 2017 to the beautiful emerald coast. We bought a home on St Andrews Bay just a few miles from Beachside Bliss. We absolutely love PCB and are excited to share our blessings with you! Tim & Vicki Bougan
Vicki Bougan purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why Vicki Bougan chose Panama City Beach
We call this unit 'Beachside Bliss' because it's gulf front and right on the beach (and not just any beach, but one of the world's most beautiful beaches)!
What makes this Townhome unique
Beachside Bliss is not in a high rise condo... you park right outside the front door and walk down the deck steps onto the sand. You have no elevators to wait for and don't have to share the beach with a thousand others in a high rise complex. It's quiet, beautiful, and oh-so relaxing!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
GREAT Family Vacation!
This is our second time staying at this beautiful town home. We absolutely love it. The location is great. Easy access to the beach with no crowds. Enjoyed an early morning walk to Pier Park. Fully equipped kitchen to cook for 10 along with a Weber grill outside. High end decks chairs to enjoy the ocean view. Comfortable beds for everyone. We had the pleasure of meeting Tim during our stay. Very attentive owners. We can't wait to stay again!
Tim was very supportive and helpful with all features of our stay!
Best Vacation Ever
Girls trip with my daughters and granddaughter. The townhome was very clean and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds, nice updated furnishings, fully equipped kitchen with new pots and pans. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck (in the tall chairs) and looking at the beautiful view of the gulf! The deck also had a nice, high end Weber grill. Being able to walk down the stairs of the deck right to the beach was a huge plus!!! Tim and Vicki were wonderful to work with from booking our stay all the way through checkout. We can't wait to come back to Beachside Bliss!
Awesome place to stay!
Beachside Bliss was amazing! We loved it! Tim and Vicki were awesome. They answered any questions I had instantly! The townhome was very spacious and perfect for a family. Great location, beach was never packed. Highly recommend! We will be staying here again!
The most relaxing vacation !!!
This was first time not staying in a high rise....I LOVED it! No fighting for parking far away, no waiting long period of time for elevator! We literally never left our town home. We grilled lunch & dinner most days on our own deck and my morkie Rex enjoyed with us. I loved walking out to beach from our deck. I will never stay at another high rise and can’t wait to book for next year!!!! Kitchen was perfect for anyone who loves to cook! I loved the refrigerator too! Thank you for making our 4th holiday a memorable one!!!!
Not worth the price
Cons: Called owner as soon as we got there because we couldn’t figure out how to adjust the AC. Apparently she was on a cruise so no call back until our 3rd day but by then we had figured it out. Online pictures look much better than in person. Needs a deep cleaning. Furniture was in poor shape and uncomfortable, especially the beds. Could feel every spring in the mattress. Only a 32” tv in the living room. Sand on floors was excessive. I realize it’s unavoidable at the beach but it was already bad before we ever set foot on it. Path to beach needs work, fairly overgrown and presented a real tripping hazard, Need better cookware in the kitchen. Nonstick pots & pans would have been easier to work with. Hole in the wall of downstairs bathroom. Found an open condom wrapper sticking out from under one of the mattresses. Don’t know how that was missed as it was pretty obvious. Dog hair and wads of human hair on “clean” towels. It rained our last day and a closed window upstairs leaked all over the place. Pros: Good location, about a mile from Pier Park. Great view! Saw dolphins every morning once the water calmed down. It was very rough the first half of our stay. Deck was nice. High chairs to see over, brand new grill, water hose available to rinse the sand off yourself. Plenty of room overall. This could be a great place if it was cleaned thoroughly and the furniture updated. Still had a great time with my family but would have enjoyed it more if our surroundings had been better. I feel for the price it should have been. Note: did not contact owner about anything but the AC. There was no point as problems were mostly related to poor upkeep and not fixable unless the place is renovated.
Wow. We occasionally get guests who are unhappy, but we feel she is being very unfair here. Tiffany also had my phone number (Tim) and I was *not* on the cruise and would have been available to address any problems immediately. We ask guests to report cleaning issues to us ASAP as our service is responsible to return and take care of them on the same day they are reported. But Tiffany decided not to report anything until after she checked out (and only then in this review). We will admit that cleaning has been a challenge since Hurricane Michael (getting reliable cleaners is still difficult) but I personally have been visiting each unit weekly to address any shortfalls. We are interviewing new cleaning companies starting next week as well. As for the holes in the bathroom walls -- it was Tiffany and her guests that made those holes. I spent several hours on Saturday patching them for the guests that were checking in after her. While we would have been within our rights to withhold some of her damage deposit we did not do so. About the furniture... we regularly clean and replace furniture as needed (including the mattresses). We have replaced the sofa, one of the living room chairs, and the master bedroom mattress all within the past year. We put high-end furniture, appliances (including Weber grills), and pots/pans in the unit. We have many, many glowing reviews and many, many returning guests (year after year). Finally, Tiffany's claim that the problems could not be addressed is unsupported as her primary issue was cleaning. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, and do read the 100+ five star reviews we have received over the years. -- Tim & Vicki
