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 Panama City Beach
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.

Absolutely perfect !
This place is absolutely perfect ! My family and I stayed here for my parents 30th wedding anniversary along with our 2 golden retrievers. It's hard to find a place (especially directly on the beach) that will let you bring large breed dogs so we are very thankful they aloud us to do so! And the entire place is dog friendly! We loved being able to drink our coffee on the deck overlooking the beach every morning. You just walk down the deck stairs and you're on the beach ! It was so convenient especially bc I have a 1 year old son. We would leave our stuff set up and go back for lunch or to lay my son down for a nap. It was great not having to carry everything back and forth. Plus, the condo has everything you need for the beach; chairs, umbrellas, floats, and even baby floats which was perfect bc we forgot my son's. It's also right down the street from Pier Park, restaurants, and souvenir shops ! Jackie and Peter were wonderful as well! They were so nice and great about staying in touch, making sure everything was perfect. My family and I have already talked about booking here every year!! Thank you so much again Jackie and Peter !!
Thanks so much for this Lauren - it's what makes our world go round.
Fabulous Sailfish Townhouse
We arrived at the townhouse on a Friday night and found it to be very clean and exactly what we had hoped for, Relaxing and cozy. Saturday morning we found that the coffee pot had been broken, but before we could notify Peter and Jackie about the situation Aimee had stopped by to let us know about it and that she would replace it, if we were coffee drinkers, I was impressed with the quickness of the replacement. Other than the broken coffee pot issue we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful view from the deck. Sitting there every morning watching the sunrise and seeing an occasional dolphin was amazing! After our morning ritual we walked the beach looking for seashells just enjoying its beauty. This was a long over due vacation and thanks to Peter and Jackie we were able to enjoy it immensely. They are wonderful people to rent from and my family looks forward to our next opportunity to stay at their townhouse, which is exactly like they described, a home away from home. Recommendations to visitors are deep sea fishing and the shell island tour with Captain Anderson.
Thank you again Peter and Jackie for the relaxing vacation.

Makes us look more forward than ever to be down in the beach (we will be soon). Thanks so much for your great revue Mary and Chris and for treating it as your own. We will be working this winter to make Sailfish 3 better than ever.
This beachfront beauty was a perfect place to rest and recharge for us and our two pups! We enjoyed the large deck and the small deck off the master bedroom. The pups enjoyed hanging out with is in the mornings and evenings when it was cooler. There is a pet friendly beach a couple of miles away but we didn't go this trip. The deck is gated so no worries about them getting loose. They were able to roam around and choose a spot to enjoy the view. The kitchen was well -stocked to cook just about any type of meal you would want. The bedrooms are large and the master bed was comfortable. Water pressure in the upstairs shower was pretty good. It is a Jack and Jill bath, meaning the two upstairs bedrooms share the bath. There is a nice bath with shower downstairs, as well. The unit was clean and the furniture was comfortable. It was about 20 yards from the deck to the water's edge. The beach was not crowded and there was plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed live music at Tootsie's at Pier Park, breakfast at Janine's One Stop and Thomas Donuts, great food at Patches (try the dry rub wings and the tuna special on Friday night), and Angelo's Steakhouse. We also got steamed shrimp at Buddy's to eat at home one night. It is right down the road. They were perfect! A good friend also recommended Nick's NY Pizza but we didn't get a chance to try it. We are already checking our calendar to see when we can return!
Glad you had a good time Renee and Mark - we hope you come back
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.
Our greatest fun and pleasure is when our guests enjoy and appreciate our beach house as much as we do. Thanks for your great review
Amazing Family Vacation
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.
Thanks for your review Dzana, we're always delighted when our clients have fun and enjoy our place.
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
