About Ron Pilcher
I have worked in logistics for many years and enjoy taking care of folks. My local support network is highly experienced and knowledgeable. They are ready to make your vacation a success !
Ron Pilcher purchased this House in 2012
Why Ron Pilcher chose Palm Cove
This is a great place close to everything in Panama City Beach. I have surveyed the rentals in the area and know it is priced right. I bought this house after staying next door and up the street for a few years. Always very handy, homey, and enjoyable.
What makes this House unique
Quiet, convenient and close. Plenty of room for a family. Cozy for a couple. Cheaper than a hotel or beachfront condo and much more convenient. The car is right outside, not across the street by walkway . No elevators to wait for. No narrow concrete box effect or folks running by your front door at all hours. This is a family home away from home. Handi-capable, pet friendly, people friendly.

Your home was great. It was perfect for our family. We loved the privacy, no banging on the walls or loud music, like you have in a hotel. The manager was great, when we needed anything he was right there. We really enjoyed the stay and would do it again.
I really enjoyed meeting you and having you at the house. Hope you have many good stays wherever you go.
Plenty of room. Clean
Thanks for your review ! Enjoyed having you.
We have done our best for the last six years and have enjoyed our guests and always appreciate the reviews.
With a 100% five star review record, over that period we will be retiring this property at the end of the season (1 November) and end our time as vacation rental providers.
It seems our ways and methods are not suitable for Home Away and they seem to know how to do everything better than we do.
They have gone from being helpful, unobtrusive and charging a reasonable price for their services to supplanting and fixing what is not broke and making us do their thing and dropping us down in the listings if we do not. And they charge more, much more and are dipping into our pockets to foist this stuff on us.
Their "help" has caused more problems than they are worth and what used to be easy and efficient and friendly has turned into impersonal , canned, and slow and cumbersome.
There is now more incentive to rent long term, and so you, folks, are the loosers of a 100% five star guest rated, well kept, economical place to stay that is personal, pet friendly and handi-capable - rare indeed.
Home Away, meanwhile, by their pricing and advertising, seems to court high end, high rent units and those with multiple units who have time to play "Home Away" all day.
My advice is to go to some other service and there are many.
As for us, we are worn out dealing with this and need a break.
It has been great to have you, thanks for staying, and good luck !
We LOVED this place. It was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Our family of 7 had plenty of room. The owner was available anytime we needed him and called when we arrived take sure we had everything we needed. Quiet neighborhood and close enough to the beach. Thank you for allowing us to share your amazing home.
Thanks Amanda -
I enjoyed hosting you and your family.
I was glad I was available when needed.
A great place to stay!
The house was very nice and had everything we wanted. The area is quiet and easy to get anywhere you want to go.
Thanks Shari -
I enjoyed having you as a guest !
Being central to the area is a main point.
Off the bustle, but close enough to get to the fun....
See you soon!
It was perfect!!
It was awesome!!! Plan on booking for next year!
I enjoyed hosting you and look forward to your return
Loved it! Lots of room!
This place is great! Lots of room, easy to get to, beach things to borrow in the garage, close to lots of great "touristy" shopping, regular shopping, and of, course, the beach. Its not really good walking distance to the beach, but you could do it. We walked 1 day, then drove the rest and just parked at the public parking behind the Burger King ($4 per day). The kids only complaint was that the TV's in their rooms were "not big enough", but that didn't bother us too much. I would highly recommend this. You get a ton of room for the money! We will definitely be back. And, deposit was refunded quickly.
Thanks ! This underscores that I hope you will call me with any concerns.
I wish I had known you were parking at the public lot - there was free parking at the pier.
As for the TVs, that is the first comment in five years of renting. but will consider it
when redecorating. We figure you will be outside most of the time.
I really try to get the deposits back - we do not even think of making money
from or being difficult with them. If there has been a problem (like say, a
hole in the garage wall) we will let you know, but if we have kept 0.01% of
the deposit money, I would be surprised. Please consider us again next year.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Rates shown above WILL vary. Standard Rate is the highest rate I charge, yours should be much lower. I am seeing some very odd quotes from Home Away with no basis in what I have posted with them. Their quote is neither valid nor binding. I don't normally quoite nightly rates. There is ALWAYS a 3 night minimum. Rates are generally based on a Sunday to Sunday stay. The site does not allow proper display of my rate structure and variances which are usually in your favor. (sorry !). Rates are normally based on the length of stay with price breaks for longer stays. I provide a quote based on your stay that shows all taxes and fees and lays them out in a proposed contract that I attach to your response; only my quote is the actual quote I send in response to your inquiry and I am not bound by Home Away's unwelcome attempts to do this for me. Please do not use request reservation feature - Home Away collects your money and I am not connected to it.
