Overview

About the property

Townhome, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

We call our adorable and cozy 1BR townhome 'Beachside Joy” -- it is a beautiful gulf front unit that sits directly on the sugar-white sands of Panama City Beach (one of the most beautiful beaches in the world)! Beachside Joy is a NON-SMOKING unit.

When you stay here you are on the beach -- just walk down the deck stairs! This is not a high rise condo or hotel; there are no elevators to wait for and you don't have to share the beach with a thousand other condo residents. It's so wonderful to be able to walk right out the door and onto the beach or into the water!

Beachside Joy has a spacious living room, very tastefully decorated, with a 42' Sony Bravia HDTV and a gorgeous view of the Gulf of Mexico. The very comfortable couch is also a pull-out queen size sleeper sofa with a new and comfy memory foam mattress! There's a full bathroom on the same level (with a shower).

For convenience, the Beachside Joy has a beautiful, newly remodeled and fully-stocked cozy kitchen (including custom soft-close cabinets, quartz counter top, mosaic glass back splash, and high-end stainless appliances) so you can whip up a romantic dinner to enjoy on the deck while the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico. There is a private gas grill for your use on the deck -- perfect for adding a grilled steak or seafood to the meal!

The master suite, right up the spiral staircase, is bright and cheery with picture windows offering beautiful and serene views of the beach and gulf (including the spectacular sunsets)! The bed itself is king size with a high quality mattress (so you can sleep soundly after a day of fun). And you'll absolutely love the beautiful master bath, with a large dual sink granite vanity and a jetted jacuzzi tub. The TV in the master suite is also a Sony Bravia HDTV.

As for location, Beachside Joy is located approximately 3/4 of a mile west of the fabulous Pier Park shopping resort! You can see the pier itself from the gulf front deck.

There are some great dining spots within walking distance of our townhome. Right across the street you’ll find a very good Italian/Pizza restaurant, a Wings/Barbeque place, and of course a couple of great seafood places (check out the “Sand Bar” about a block away).

There is a Winn Dixie grocery store and a CVS pharmacy across the street as well. Just to our east (in Pier Park) you’ll find a world of entertainment, dining, and shopping. The pier itself offers great views and fine fishing!

We employ a friendly and thorough cleaning service (so you’ll find our home well cleaned and ready for your vacation).

We keep our calendar up-to-date, so you can check the available dates. Please call or send us a message with questions!

Owners

Important note! Beachside Joy is a beautiful and comfortable beachfront vacation home, but it is is a small unit which requires a spiral staircase (there isn't room for a traditional staircase because the high ceilings, though airy and spacious, don't allow for enough length). The staircase is 100% in compliance with all building codes and the vast majority of our guests have no issues with them whatsoever. However, if you are elderly or have mobility issues to deal with, please consider the staircase before you decide to book with us. We want everyone who stays at Beachside Joy to have a wonderful time!

About Vicki Bougan

Hi! We currently live in Castle Pines, Colorado (just south of Denver). We bought these two adjacent townhomes as our future retirement home. As we're still some years away from retirement, we want to share our blessings with other families.

Vicki Bougan purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Vicki Bougan chose Florida

We call this unit 'Beachside Joy' 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 Joy is a townhome and not a high rise condo or hotel. 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!

Beautiful, comfortable, and perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at Beachside Joy and as long as we can stay here we will never stay anywhere else! The townhouse has everything we need. It's clean, cozy and pretty. We love being able to walk out onto the deck and sit and watch the ocean and most of all we love the short walk to the beach. I have been to PCB many, many times, but this is the best place I have ever stayed at. Love it!!!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Loved the stay I have rented this townhome multiple times. The only problem I had is that I thought check out was at 11 and I always wash the dishes we use and clean as much as I can and put all the towels used in a pile to make it easier for the cleaning service. She happened to show up when we were grabbing our last bag about to walk out the door and she said "are yall almost done check out is at 10 and i said oh I thought it was at 11 and she replied no you are being charged every minute you are still here" and walked out with an attitude. Other than that I have always enjoyed the owners and this property..

Excellent location , on the beach , close to restaurants and stores.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week here with the exception of several items. It appeared this was

one of the only units without central cooling. The window unit downstairs and the stand alone unit upstairs were quite loud for sleeping or trying to watch television. The back deck,which is very nice, is a common deck for this and the adjoining unit. The guests next door had two dogs that continued to go potty next to our door mat and grill area. Since our dog was always taken down to the grassy area it was annoying for me to have to spray down after someone's dog.

Owner's Response: Hi Ken, we're glad you enjoyed your stay! We really wish you had let us know about the neighbors' dogs doing their business on the deck (we would have taken care of that very quickly). The deck is joined to our 3-bedroom unit with a divider for privacy (and we plan to install individual gates between each side later this year). As for the A/C -- Beachside Joy *does* have central air (automatically controlled). The individual units are for optional use to give the guests more control over for their comfort. -- Tim & Vicki

Wonderful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say this was such a lovely and cozy spot. The neighbors were so nice next to us. The condo is SO clean and well taken care of.

Everything you would need is all very close by. My boyfriend and I had the most wonderful experience and we will be recommending it to all of our friends!
