About the property

3 bedrooms 2.5 baths ON THE BEACH. Sleeps 13

Tranquility... the name says it all. Located RIGHT ON the white sugary sands in the heart of Panama City Beach. Go out the back door from the sun room and you are right ON THE BEACH. You will feel the 'tranquility' that the name of this home implies the moment you set foot in the house. Enjoy lounging in the hot tub while gazing at the gulf watching the sun set, or conversing in the sun room which has a 180 degree view of the gulf, or watch TV on one of the four flat screen TVs including the high def 60' TV in the living room or the large screen high def TV in the master bedroom. Programming includes over 200 cable channels including HBO, STARZ, Cinemax, SHOWTIME, and the sports channels. Also free Wi-Fi.

The home is centrally located within Panama City Beach – within walking distance to Pineapple Willie’s, La Vela, and Walmart. Since you are in a residential section of the beach (not next to any condos) it will feel like you have your own private beach!

You will enjoy full use of the entire ground floor of this two-story beach house. Your vacation get-away has five sleeping areas. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a large flat screen high definition TV. The second bedroom has a built in queen over queen bunk bed, a day bed and a flat screen TV. The third sleeping area is a pass-thru bedroom with twin bunk beds and a day bed with a trundle. This area has its own flat screen TV and half bath. It is perfect for the kids. The fourth sleeping area is the sun room, right off the master, with a queen size sleeper sofa. The fifth sleeping area is the living room, which has a queen size sleeper sofa. There are two full baths, a half bath, and an outdoor shower.

Hot tub and charcoal grill on back porch. Parking for four cars in front driveway.

Note: this property is two separate homes, 'Heart of the Beach' upstairs and 'Tranquility' downstairs.

About Nelofer Childress

Panama City Beach is our full time home.

Why Nelofer Childress chose Florida Panhandle

This property is two separate homes, 'Heart of the Beach' which we live in full time upstairs and 'Tranquility' which we rent to vacationers downstairs. Tranquility was built as a beach cottage in the 1940s. The outside walls and some interior walls are about 2 feet thick concrete! Guess that's why it's lasted through so many hurricanes! The upstairs was built in 1995 by its then owner whom you may have heard of; Lita Ford. She was the lead guitarist for the Runaways in the late 1970s. She and her family lived here for a few years. Neighbors have told us Ozzy Osbourne and others were frequent visitors back then.

Very Nice! Right on the beach and just as described.

  • 5 of 5

We had a blend of several families and there was plenty of room for all. The walk out to the beach was perfect distance. We have stayed in condos before and really enjoyed the house that provided adequate parking without the elevator ride up and down every time we wanted to go to the beach. There is a nice kitchen, big living room area and big dining room table. Made for plenty of room for everyone. Traffic being what it is, it was nice to be so close to Walmart. There are plenty of activities within walking distance, too. Overall, a very nice stay!

Great, you will not be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

This a wonderful area to stay. The beach is a residential low rise area. The crowds do not find this area, but it is very close to all amenities. We enjoyed the privacy of the hot tub with the beach view. The house actually has 2 bedrooms, but can sleep a very large group. The TVs have so many free movies for those times when you want to rest from the sun. We stayed the month (with our dog!!) and can't wait to return. Nelofer, the host, was extremely nice and accommodating. Thank you.

Good Location

  • 2 of 5

The rental was everything it said it would be on the interior. Plenty of room for 2 families to enjoy. When I go to the beach one of the main things I look forward to is being able to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine looking out over the ocean/beach from the patio or balcony. That was not possible with this rental. The ocean is not visible from the patio.

Owner's Response: The reviewer starts his review by saying that "the rental was everything it said it would be on the interior". We agree! And the same is true of our view - since the actual view of the Gulf of Mexico from the patio is clearly shown on our cover photo. This house is right on the beach! You literally cannot get any closer! And as the cover photo shows, you can clearly see the Gulf from the house and from the patio, on the other side of the protective sand dune which is clearly pictured. Come enjoy our peaceful PCB Beach House - you will be glad you did!!!!

Very pleased and would recommend to anybody!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by how spacious the house was. Pictures did not do it justice. The view from the back porch is also breathtaking. It was exactly what we were looking for to satisfy our week trip to the beach. Nothing compares to being able to walk right out the back door early in the morning and already be touching the sand. The homeowner was extremely friendly as were all the neighbors. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to get away for just the weekend or stay an entire week. But be careful, once you stay a couple of nights in this marvelous beach house, you will probably never want to leave.

Tranquility...the name says it all. Located on the white sugary sands in the heart of Panama City Beach. Go out the back door and you are ON THE BEACH! And when you want to get out and explore what all PCB has to offer this is the area to be in.

This home is centrally located right in the heart of PCB, one block east of Pineapple Willy's. It is within walking distance of LaVela, Spinnaker, and of Walmart. It is only a short drive to Signal Hill golf course, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Wonder Works, mini-golf, Shipwreck Island water park and various thrill rides and go cart tracks. St. Andrews state park is about 5 miles east with its nature trails, fishing pier, marina and boat rentals. Pier Park with all its unique shops and restaurants is a little over 5 miles west.

The house is located on Beach Blvd., which is one of the quietest and more exclusive streets on the beach - away from the traffic noise of Front Beach Road or Thomas Drive.
