Why Kate chose Laguna Beach

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.

GREAT FAMILY STAY

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great house and very easy access to beach.

We filled the entire PCB Bluehouse up with lots of people. We had a great time and if back in the PCB area would use this house again.

Clean, great location, beautiful pool, accomodates large family group

  • 4 of 5

A very good week at the beach! We were impressed with the cleanliness and location most of all. The apartment style was perfect for our large family - but thank goodness for the sunporch and pool area to gather as a large group. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool!

Constructive input: There is way too much furniture both inside and out for livability. Many of the pieces (coffee tables, plant stands, etc) are in the way taking up space. Same for outside - way too many chairs - difficult to even walk around the pool. The efficiencies are well stocked in kitchen items, however the main house kitchens are cluttered with misc pantry items, cookware, etc and have no room for food purchased for the week.

Thank you for sharing your beach house! Laguna Beach is beautiful!

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of former college roommates that vacation together every other year or so. Now, we're up to five or six families (depending on availability) that will pick a week and go. This house was great! The location was 2nd only to being right on the beach. You are out of the crazy PCB activities but close enough to enjoy the restaurants/shopping/activities. The beach is literally right across the street and absolutely beautiful.

The private pool was wonderful to have and when you were done with the beach and provided an opportunity to take a refreshing dip while still being able to socialize.

The downstairs 2 bedroom/1 bath unit became our common kitchen and eating area when we had dinners together. We were able to fit all 12 of us in for great meals. The kitchens are small but were more than adequate for those in the group that made fabulous meals throughout our stay.

Initially, we encountered a problem with the shower head in one of the bathrooms. Kate was more than responsive and the problem was solved immediately!

We really couldn't have had better experience! Thank you, Kate!
