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 Panama City Beach

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.

Loved it! Lots of room!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best family vacation I have ever had. this was the first time we have ever rented a house and it was amazing. When you rent a house you think you would have to bring a bunch of thing, but in this case this house was set for you to walk in and start your vacation. The house was very clean and spacious, we had 8 people and had no issues with room. We saved a lot of money by staying at home to cook most of our meal. I want to thank the home owner for everything he had help us with. We will highly recommend this rental to friend and return to it. The community was quite and clean with 2 pools to go with the beautiful beach just a few minutes away. Thanks again for making our stay an awesome one.

There's no place better to stay in Panama City!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat guests with this renter. We are always more than satisfied with the home and it's location. You are about 1/4 mile away from the most beautiful beaches anywhere-walking distance, if you choose. The home is just far enough away from the mainstream tourist center where you can just relax and enjoy the surroundings. The community is gated which is a great comfort. The pools are sparkling and rarely more than a few people there at any given time. The home itself is superb- great care is taken by the renter to make sure you enjoy your home away from home. Just take your clothes and go to the store for some food for the week and you are good to go. Everything else is there for you-- right down to the beach chairs and toys for the kids. Renter is always available if needed. Love to go but always hate to leave- looking forward to my next trip back!!!

Owner's Response: I love hearing this. Especially from someone who can track how it has been over the years and it is nice to know it has been consistently good. I work to keep it that way and I know what I am doing. I am not perfect,, but I do what I can. For example, I don't guarantee the toys, chairs and float noodles/boogie boards, but I don't just throw them out because I know you like and use them. I love having folks like you who respect others and the property. I am glad we did good for you !

Just about perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and in an excellent location with a grassy area and a commercial paved parking lot behind it where we walked our dog. The furnishings were very nice and up-to-date. The kitchen had every utensil and appliance we could hope for. The owner arranged for the DVR we requested, and promptly repaired the toilet when it broke. It was a bit cool so we didn't use the screened porch or barbecue deck, but they would have been pleasant in better weather. The dog-friendly beach was some distance away, but not inconvenient. We enjoyed our first visit to Panama City Beach and explored the surrounding coastal areas. We've already booked for the same 2 1/2 months next year!

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.
