About Jan Bates

Newly retired looking to enjoy the sand and the surf.

Jan Bates purchased this house in 2010

Why Jan Bates chose Panama City Beach

We have been coming here for years, love the white sand beaches, the Eco system of being close to St. Andrews Park where we can bike and walk while looking at the birds and fish and boats. This area has some of the best fishing around, easy to put your boat in the park, walking distance to many restaurants we love, great shopping at Pier Park. This end of the beach is more peaceful and there are no high rises in front of us, just single family homes, therefore, you are not in their shadow and can enjoy the views of the white waves coming up onto the beach. Its a lovely area to be in..

What makes this house unique

Even though we are one and a half blocks to beach, we still have great views of the water and the sunset .The block in front of us is an empty lot which allows us a better water view. We love the huge deck on the 3nd floor, seating for 10, where large groups can gather and watch the sunset. We have a large Tuscan style table for many memorable dinners. We have 4 adirondack chairs on the fourth level crows nest which is accessible by a spiral staircase .

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this home. Elevator was a plus, since my mom uses a walker. And the AC kept up with the extreme temps outside. The ride to the beach on a golf cart was 2 min away. Would definitely stay here again.

This property is all it claims to be and more!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don't capture the true beauty and quality of this spacious vacation home. The beds are very comfortable and the decor is lovely. There were only 2 couples in our party but there is plenty of room for a 3rd couple. The 3 floors are designed to allow privacy for each, and the very nice elevator is a wonderful asset for getting luggage to upper levels. We didn't use the pool but it is beautiful.

We enjoyed New Year's Eve fireworks from the upper balcony!

One day we had a tasty lunch on the beach at Schooners only a short walk away.

This is a First Class accommodation! We plan to return every year!

Love it

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean. We had a great stay. Only a couple of things was wrong not enough face towels. Debris From The Storm was in the pool and I guess the chair was in the pool because of the weather. Mrs.Jan came over soon as I call her with the complaint. Other than that we had a great time. I will highly recommend this home for your vacationer.
