Why Mickey Urmann chose Panama City
FantaSea Beach house is directly on the sugary white sands of Panama City Beach. The home boasts unobstructed panoramic views of the Gulf. On a clear day you can see all the way to Destin!
What makes this House unique
Home is located on Spyglass Drive on the East end of Panama City Beach. The home's location couldn't be better; you're walking distance to several restaurants, night spots and a short bike ride to St Andrews State Park. Whether you're watching the sunbathers or the sunsets, you can't beat this view!

Family vacation was awesome. Perfect spot...great house. Loved every minute of our stay. House is cute and clean.
Fabulous Stay. Highly Recommend.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay:) The management company that takes care of things is TOP notch, professional and extremely responsive. If you want to be right on the beach, this is your place. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony at night, just taking in the sounds and sights. This home is close to grocery stores, the Marina, activities, restaurants, and St. Andrew's Park.
As mentioned, right on the beach and an extremely responsive management company if any concerns arise. The two ovens are fabulous, the washer and dryer are great, and we enjoyed the open kitchen into the family room area. Also, we have to say this is the best grill we have had at a beach house. The place was spic and span when we arrived. The beach is fabulous and being close to Schooners was a plus for those nights we needed a quick bite to eat. (long wait there, but who cares, we were on the beach).
Areas of Opportunity:
We'd definitely rent again regardless of these items. Just some thoughts/notes/experiences:
The air wasn't working upstairs when we arrived. The unit was new so I'm not sure what happened; however, they came out immediately, did what they could that night (a little steamy up there for the first night). Came back the next day and it was perfect for the remainder of our trip. BEST management company I have ever encountered while renting a beach house.
Needs a can opener:) The one there doesn't work.
We left a few purchased items for the next group also. Could maybe use a few more mixing bowls. Otherwise, plenty stocked with pots and pans, dishes, etc.
The cooktop still has two burners out, but we certainly appreciated the hot plate appliance to make up for that.
The outlet in the downstairs bathroom doesn't work. This is inconvenient when drying hair, etc. Also, the faucet in the tub is coming loose from the wall when you turn on the shower.
Not sure what was up with the Directv in the downstairs bedroom, but we could only get one channel. Not a big deal, as we spent most of our time outside anyway. I just wanted to let you know. We did mention it to the maintenance guy that came out to change the propane tank on the grill. He was awesome.
Upstairs outlets in back room don't work. We discovered this when trying to turn on fans the first night the air didn't work.
Upstairs layout is interesting;). However, we made it work.
Five stars! Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful place with all of us.
vacation time away
This is our 3rd year staying here and we do love the location.
This time however, the first night we were without air upstairs and we fought roaches the whole time we were there. Huge ones. We went and bought roach hotels to get them. We had to go buy an extension cord because our daughter stayed in the upstairs back bedroom and the outlets don't work in that room so she could use her fan while she slept. We went and bought a towel and had to put it over her window because there was no curtain or blinds on the window. The outlet in the upstairs bathroom on the left hand side don't work but I went and used the mirror area to do my hair. Dry and curl it.
It has an ideal location on the beach but it could use a few things fixed. Oh yes, the stovetop has 2 burners that don't work. Of course, unfortunately, it was the 2 big ones. I used the 2 small ones. That was unfortunate. There also wasn't as much in the way of cookware to make our supper. I had no oven mitt to take the hot pans out of the oven and there were no bowls to use. Well, there was 1 glass one. I don't know if people take your stuff, and if they do I am sorry. It just needs to have a bit more to use. With the higher cost to stay there we had to eat in most of the time and it was hard to do with a small amount of cookware. Don't get me wrong we love the place it just needs a face lift to bring it back to the awesome place that it was. I left cookie sheets that I went and bought so that the next family would have them. We also tried to use the can opener and it wouldn't work at all so we had to use a knife to try and pry them open and then got shards of metal in the beans so we threw them away. Again, it just needs a face lift and some more care. I only had 2 dishwasher pods to do our dishes for a week so I went and bought a pack of those and left them also for the next family. I bought detergent for the dishes so we could wash them. I am not sure how this all works maybe we are suppose to stock the place when we come. Like I said the bugs and the utensils and the stove were the main things. Thanks though for the beautiful view and the peace and quiet.
Apologies for the inconvenience. I wish you would have notified me of the issues you encountered during your stay. We are on call 24/7 to resolve any and all issues that may arise. All of the issues listed in your review have been corrected. I hope you will stay with us again.
Fantasea Spring Break 2019
We had a wonderful week in this beautiful home! It had everything that we needed plus more. The beach was beautiful and it was only a few steps away. This home will make you never want to stay in a condo again! We will definitely be back! !!
This place have everything that you will need on your vacation. Walking distance to the St Andrews State Park Pier and some restaurants and stores. The only weird part is how to get to the children's play area, you have to go through the Master's bath, my mom felt uncomfortable since you can actually see if someone is in the shower. Maybe they can add a divider or something.
The perfect real beach house at a quiet end of the beach
Although Hurricane Michael left us without TV for most of the week, and without internet the entire week, the beach house was wonderful, as was the management group for this property. It’s hard to complain about no TV when the Direct TV repairman let’s you know that he and his son haven’t had hot water due to the hurricane for a month. The up side is that we had a lot of time to read and relax!
Amazing sunsets and views, and loved Paches Pub, so close by and where we felt like locals!
