Why Kate chose Laguna Beach Estates

We had visited our Dad in Panama City Beach for the Thanksgiving Holiday. As we were sitting on the beach, it dawned on us that we were in one of the most beautiful places on earth. We are definate beach-people and most of our past vacations, have been spent in tropical destinations. There is nowhere that we have found that has sand that squeaks beneath our feet, perfect water, and a fun town like Panama City Beach. It took all but an instant for us to realize that this is where we wanted to retire.

What makes this house unique

Our beach house is very unique because it sits right on Front Beach Road, on the quiet West End, and includes a tropical swimming pool. It is also unique because it has differing units that combine to make up one amazing home. An example being an interior connecting stairway that affords families the ability to have a fantastic vacation together, while still affording them a healthy amount of privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a professional woman staying in the downstairs studio full time. While the majority of my guests liked her very much, I did have two guests that felt uncomfortable with that arrangement. She has since found a different place to live and is no longer on the premises. We also will be updating our televisions in August of 2012 when there is an opening in order to cause the least amount of disruption to our guests.

Nothing short of beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful! Me and 17 of my friends came down for spring break and were so impressed. There is room for lots of people and the pool area is amazing. It is just a very short walk from the beach and it is breathtaking! No seaweed, clear waters, barely any people. We had a perfect week! Such a fun city and so beautiful. Would definitely recommend!

The property is amazing.....loved the separation of the rooms.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at the Blue House was nothing but amazing and memorable! We had about 12 adults with us and the separation of the house made it the best experience. There were 4 kitchens!!!! Although it was windy, the walk to the beach took about 2 mins. The Blue House is no doubt in the best location, minutes from everything! We are planning another vacation for the spring or summer and will definitely try to book the Blue House!

Good place for price however not safe for children.

  • 3 of 5

Bottom unit door does not lock from inside and the pool is just a few feet away. One upstairs unit also won't lock from inside. The spiral staircase rail was broke and very dangerous. Broken tiles in flooring could be a place to cut a shoeless foot. The outside stairs were difficult to use at night because they were unlit. Hot water was a challenge. Took about 5 minutes to heat up in the kitchens. The internet stopped working after our second night of 4 night stay. The out of state owner was not helpful.

Owner's Response: Hi Deb, I’m so sorry to just now be hearing about these problems that you incurred. We do not have inside locks on the doors which eliminates the hassle of keys. When you called and told me that your child would not listen to you and kept running outside and asked if you could put an indoor lock on that you would remove when you left since your husband was a contractor I recall saying that was fine. You called back a few hours later and said that you had found something at Walmart to alleviate the problem and that all was well. You called again and said that the WIFI went out. I gave you directions to get it up and running again. Although no other issues were ever mentioned I would like you as well as other guests to know that three years ago we replaced all the tile in the house. The contractor did a poor job and rather than nurse the problem along any further we decided to re-replace all of the tile during the off season this year. Most owners do have major renovations done during the off season but had I known that the small area of tile that was still cracked was an issue I would most definitely have had my handyman there the same day. I am an out of state owner that visits this home at least 4 times a year. I have a handyman on call, HVAC/Plumbining VIP same day service, a cleaning crew and a property manager. I am an extremely conscientious owner, very easy to get a hold of and more than willing to bend over backwards for my guests. That said, I don’t believe that I could have been more helpful if I lived right next door if I never hear the concern. Tiles and spiral staircase are being repaired/replaced. One outside light is being replaced but the switches need to be on for the outside lights to work and 7 out of the 8 do. The water does take a while to heat in the kitchens but only when its 30 degrees outside. So once again I am sorry for issues that you encountered and really wish that you had mentioned them to me and given me the opportunity to make your stay a more enjoyable experience.

Great location, decent place, great hospitality

  • 4 of 5

Overall a nice enough place. Hospitality was superb and all over condition of the property was on par.

Could use some updating on the appliances but other wise it was great. This would accommodate multiple guest but not ideal for a large family unit since it lacks a great room or living room.

Can't say enough about the host as we were responded to immediately and with professionalism.

My family and I stayed at the "Blue House" on 8/25/2017 thru 8/28/2017. We really had a great time. The house was beautiful and accommodated our family very well. We were able to enjoy a family barbecue as well as relax by the pool. We were on the quieter end of the beach but minutes away from all the attractions. Thank you Kate for allowing us to stay. I recommend the "Blue House" for your family vacation- it was well worth it.
