About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Overlook the turquoise gulf and magnificent beaches from the deck of Sailfish 3, our tastefully appointed two-bedroom, two-bathroom beach house. It has stunning panoramic views of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and can comfortably accommodate six people. Relax in the sun on your 200 sq ft deck, or step down onto the sugary, white sand in relative privacy. After a day on the beach and a famous PCB sunset, relax in comfort in the open-concept living-room and watch television or Netflix on your 55” LCD wide-screen TV, or listen to music on the iPod compatible stereo system.

If you've had enough sun, there are great places nearby to golf, play tennis, and shop. Across from the City fishing pier is Pier Park, a huge new shopping complex that is home to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, a Grand Theater, and hundreds of stores and restaurants, all within a 4 minute drive. Sailfish 3 is also minutes from grocery stores, pharmacies, and the Beach Visitor Center which has all the information and maps you may need. For those who enjoy dining out, there are a number of excellent local restaurants, including the Boar’s Head, a nearby favorite.

Back at Sailfish 3, you have a fully-equipped, open kitchen in which to cook, mix drinks, and entertain guests. Upstairs, you’ll find the two bedrooms share a two-room, en-suite bathroom/powder room, and each has a private balcony. The beachfront bedroom has a king-size bed and a flat-screen television, while the other has a very comfortable queen-size bed. There are also two private parking spaces right outside your door, ensuring no parking problems or waiting for elevators to unload your shopping or get to the beach. All you need to pack is a beach towel, your personal belongings and a sense of adventure. We're sure you'll love your stay at Sailfish 3, and like many of our guests, return year after year. Whether you stay for a few days or a few weeks, Sailfish 3 has everything you’ll need for a wonderful vacation.

About Jackie and Peter

Jacqueline (Jac) and Peter are a retired couple of Canadians who have been coming down to Panama City beach since 1979. Peter was the Dean of The School of Design and Visual Arts at a Canadian College, and Jac ran a catering business while raising four boys.

Jackie and Peter purchased this townhome in 1990

Why Jackie and Peter chose Florida

We loved Panama City Beach at first sight, and bought Sailfish 3 in 1990 as a Winter haven for our Dad, and use by family and rental guests the balance of the year. It has provided us and our four children and large collection of friends and extended family, many many happy holidays over the ensuing years.

What makes this townhome unique

We are salt water lovers and sometime beach bums, we love the parks in the area and enjoy going out nearby, bird watching. The beach is a great spot to watch glorious sunsets, Dolphins cavorting in the waves, and wonderful night sky watching. We love the nearby oyster bars and restaurants, and the fine wine offerings from the Carousel just down the road. We have played most of the Golf courses in the area, and you can often find our wives and their friends in Bealls (Bells) shopping for clothing bargains on a Monday morning. We guys think we can cook and our wives let us, knowing they can do it better.

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Panama City Beach several times, always staying in high rise condos. After a couple of experiences with rowdy teenagers,, we decided to try something different. Enjoyed everything about this beach house. You drive right up to the front door and unloading is a breeze. You can walk right in and out the sliding glass doors onto the beautiful Trex deck. We spent lots of time under the umbrella on the deck. It is down the steps and over the dunes to the beautiful white beach. This area of the beach was not busy at all when we were there. The kitchen was well equipped with newer stainless appliances. There were plenty of dishes, pans, sliverware and utensils, and we cooked many meals at home. If you love seafood, don't miss Buddy's Seafood Market. We were close to restaurants and to Pier Park, but were out of the busy traffic you generally see on Front Beach Road. And we appreciated being able to bring our small dog. We tried to reciprocate by being good pet owners,, always picking up after her and not damaging any of the nice furnishings. We will definitely choose Jackie and Peter's house on our next trip back.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this beach house. This beach house had everything we needed and more. Everyone in our group enjoyed it to the fullest. Can't wait to come back someday. Beach is very quiet here and it was great being very close to Pier Park for lunch and dog beach. Also loved Thomas Doughnuts just short drive away. We will be back soon. Thanks Jackie and Peter for great accommodation.

wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I renew our wedding vows every year on our anniversary. This year we choose Sailfish 3. Its a great place to stay right on the beach, with a great deck, you can eat and just watch the ocean. The owners make sure you have everything you could want to cook or grill with. We didn't want to leave, and hope to go back again

SAILFISH 3 is a GREAT place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in three years staying at Sailfish 3 and I'm sure it won't be the last. What a wonderful place to come into after a long day at the beach. It is just like being at home except where we live there is no beach. The owners take pride in their beach home and the communication with them is excellent. They provide everything you need to cook in or grill out. We enjoy going to restaurants while visiting but we also like to wind down some and eat in. This is a wonderful and relaxing beach home. Thanks you two for a great place!!!!!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have looked for the perfect beach getaway for our girls (ages 13 and 3) for several years. Now we know we have found it! This place was absolutely perfect for us. Our girls loved their room and we loved having breakfast out on the deck every morning. There was never a lack of things to do around the area or places to eat (although we had our favorites!). My family (all four of us) agreed this was the best beach vacation we've ever had. We are looking forward to next summer. Peter and Jackie are the most generous of hosts and super easy to work with. I can't think of one complaint, although a warning...don't forget and leave your beach items on the beach overnight...they will come through and remove them. Learned that the hard way but didn't let it affect our good stay!

Owner's Response: We're sorry that Sandra and her family fell victim to zealous beach cleaning staff, and we now warn our guests not to leave anything on the public beach overnight. We don't want anything to spoil our guests vacations, and we are delighted when they appreciate our beach-house as much as we do. Thanks Sandra

Our family traveled to Panama City Beach this summer for a softball tournament with our daughter, and had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful and exceptional condo during our stay! It was the best decision we made! It was quiet, peaceful and had every amenity we could imagine, and did not have to deal with hotel traffic of elevators, people above or below you, and have actual privacy. The property is so well-maintained and modernized. The location of the property is also so close to restaurants, shopping, so walking distance is not a problem. We highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Panama City Beach-area.
