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 Panhandle

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!

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!

Very nice accommodations and you can walk right out onto beach!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice accommodations we had every thing we needed. Even though there was beach construction going on it was still nice. The bedroom air conditioner provided background noise to cover sound of equipment and cooled nicely. I would visit again :)

Location is Heavenly, Convenient and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The location could not be any better! Where the road to Panama City ends, our vacation began! The view is incredible of the Gulf, sunsets and beach. The sounds of the ocean, morning noon and night under the stars was such a treat coming from Illinois in March. The property was very secure and clean. It was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals in the kitchen and do a load of laundry. The deck that is right on the beach was an extension of our living space and where we spent most of our time. Our dog was very comfortable and loved the deck as well, there is even a gate to make sure that she did not wander off the deck! The owners were very kind and right next door during our stay. We were able to walk to dinner for pizza right across the street and walk to the Publix as well for great things to stock the fridge with! We hope to return, to this oasis on the gulf, petite and quaint with an incredible view!

Awesome

  • 4 of 5

Everything is just like the photos and more! My only complaint is that my wife and I like to cook . There weren't any sharp knives or mixing bowls really. Only a few plates so we were constantly washing dishes. Great otherwise

Perfect getaway, amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a small family (2-4 people) and offers a cozy place to enjoy a relaxing beach vacation. We spent the majority of our week out on the back porch since it is right in the beach. The view was amazing and the sunsets every night were breathtaking. The owners were so kind, responsive, and very easy to work with also!
