About the property

Family friendly; Gulf View; Private Pool; Sleeps 12; 4 bedrooms & 3 ½ baths

Summer House is located on the beach side of Thomas Drive so there are no busy streets to cross, making it safe for families walking the short distance of approximately 70 yards to and from the sugar white beaches and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Feel at home on the Gulf as you step into Summer House’s open concept living/kitchen/dining area. The fully equipped kitchen features granite counters, plenty of cabinet space, and everything you need to create and serve satisfying meals for your family…whether a quick, convenient lunch during a break from the beach or a gourmet culinary experience for a relaxing evening in.

Let the kids splash away in the PRIVATE, fenced, in-ground pool while you keep an eye on them from the living room and kitchen…or while grilling out (gas grill) right by the pool!

With tile and hardwood floors as well as 10’ – 14’ ceilings throughout, Summer House is spacious, light and airy. We want our guests to fully experience the coastal-living lifestyle inspired by the beautiful Florida panhandle. With that in mind, we carefully chose the furnishings, tapestries, and linens to reflect coastal beauty and to ensure your comfort.

The Summer House sleeping arrangements:

King Master located on the 2nd floor. Easily organize your belongings in the spacious walk-in closet. Wind down on the private balcony overlooking the swimming pool and then fully relax as you soak in the Jacuzzi tub. Sink into luxury on the premium mattress with quality linens, and take in your favorite TV show on the Flat Screen before slumbering off to dreamland.

Two Queen Bedrooms…one located on the 1st floor and the other on the 2nd floor. Both rooms have walk-in closets and private baths. Our guests are sure to wake up feeling refreshed after a dreamy night’s sleep on the premium mattresses and linens.

Bunkroom with large sun deck located on the 3rd floor. This large and roomy bunkroom with a half bath not only has plenty of space to comfortably sleep 6 people on 3 bunk beds, it also features a sofa, Flat Screen TV, and table with 6 chairs…perfect for playing board games. A perfect space for kids to be kids!

Keep an ear out for the kids or simply take in the sunset and panoramic view of the Gulf on the 450 sq. ft. sun deck right off of the 3rd floor bunkroom. The sun deck is furnished with lounge chairs and a dining table with chairs…everything you need to relax in style!

The locals refer to the east end of the beach as “the quiet end of the beach”. But not to worry…quiet does not mean boring!

Walk or bike from Summer House to the must-see St. Andrews State Park (1/3 mile) nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and the Grand Lagoon. St. Andrews Park is the second most visited park in Florida, and is the first park to win the prestigious Awards of being named the “Best State Park in Florida” twice in a row and the “Best Beach in America” by Dr. Beach.

In addition to being the area’s top spot for diving, snorkeling, and surfing, the Park also has an amazing variety of wildlife, from whitetail deer to alligators and even the occasional manatee! Anglers enjoy fishing from the Park’s two fishing piers, the bay-to-gulf fishing jetty, and two boat launches.

Nature lovers will also want to pay a visit to Shell Island for a day of shell collecting and dolphin sightings. The island is home to hundreds of species of plants and wildlife, including endangered sea turtles! From St. Andrews Park, take the shuttle or gather up to 10 people and enjoy the island at your own pace on a pontoon boat!

You will not lack for entertainment during your stay at Summer House! From live music and dancing…to dolphin excursions, boat charters, pontoon and fishing boat rentals, and guided sailing cruises…to the SeaDragon Pirate Cruise – 2 hours of sight-seeing and non-stop activities for the kids…it is all conveniently located within one-quarter mile of Summer House.

For those simply wanting to play in the breath-taking, emerald water, you will find a kite boarding shop and several dive shops along with numerous Jet Ski, kayak, canoe, and paddleboard rentals.

Foodies staying at Summer House will be delighted with the many water-front restaurants within walking distance, including but not limited to, Captain Anderson’s, Grand Marlin, Runaway Bay, and Dockside. And for the foodies who love to cook, pick up fresh seafood at the local market, and be sure to get your fresh produce and farm-fresh eggs at the local Farmer’s Market at Captain Anderson's every Saturday and Sunday.

Enjoy your time at Summer House with spectacular sunrises, relaxing sunsets, cool drinks, and sand between your toes. We know you will come back every year so do not miss your chance to book your reservation today!

Best family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time here with our girls this year. Patches pub was so convenient to walk to and has great food and cheap good drinks. Went to the beach everyday and it was great that it was so close. Lots of great space for everyone in our party at the house. We had a group of 9 and it was plenty of room. Fantastic time!!

For anyone looking to stay in this home, I HIGHLY recommend it!!!! It is sooo beautiful, and the pictures really don't do it justice. We actually arrived today, and I just could NOT wait to write a review! Our first night has been amazing, and Chris is just so helpful! He is very sweet and willing to help with WHATEVER you need!!! We are a large family and there is plenty of space for everyone. It is a very short walk to the beach, with a wonderful view from the third and second floor. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!!! Please consider this home for your next vacation if it's available!!!!!!! :) :)

We absolutely love coming to the Summer House and plan to make it annual trip for years to come. It's a beautiful home in Panama City but far from commotion of the city itself, great for families! Beach access is great and the personal pool was great! We love it and look forward to coming back!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The Summer House provided a spacious and beautifully decorated home with everything we needed for a large family(of 12) vacation. The pool is just the right size and the beach is just a short walk away. It was awesome to have the manager so close in case we needed anything. We had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful home! I definitely recommend it!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The home is gorgeous and it exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful time thanks to your beautiful home. Your house is so spacious that we had plenty of room. The pool and beach were amazing. We loved our morning strolls down the beach through the State Park. The dolphins were amazing to watch. We will definitely recommend the Summer House to all our friends.
