Panama City Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Great Venture Out house open for rental. Our house is on Gulf Loop Drive and backs up to Saint Andrews State Park. You can see deer in the morning and evening out the back door.

Note: VRBO began charging a service fee for all reservations paid through them. Our property rating is lowered by not booking through them and having our quest charged the service fee. Please note, though, that you can book directly without the service fee.

Venture Out is on the quiet end of PCB right next to Saint Andrews State Park. The resort has everything: Gated community with Security 24/7, Two pools (lagoon side and beach side), Beach on the front side and the lagoon on the backside, Private beach access, Play ground, Private dock for fishing, Tennis courts, Mini-golf, etc.

This is a great place that is very different from the high-rises. Check it out and see if it is for you. It is a great place to bring your bikes and ride around the park. Everything is also a very easy walk from our house.

A basic golf cart is also included for transportation in the resort.

Here is brief description of the house layout:

The house has a great room with a full size couch and love seat. It is a great place to gather and watch the 50' flat screen TV or a movie on the DVD player. The great room is open into the eating area and fully stocked kitchen with dishwasher.

On the other side of the kitchen is the sun-room. The sun-room has an oversize queen sleeper sofa. The sun-room is a great separate room with plenty of seating and a 25' TV.

Off of the sun-room is a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. No need to bring tons of clothes.

The two bedrooms are off to the right of the great room. Each bedroom has a private bathroom. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has a double bed. A 32' TV is in the master bedroom.

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for family activities in a family based community. The private boat ramp was exactly what we were looking for when booking our stay. The owners are very kind and get back to you quickly. Will only stay here in the future!

Excellent! Loved it !

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in Bill's cottage the week of 6/28/14 - 7/5/14 and had a fabulous time. We have stayed at Venture Out many times and this was our favorite unit by far. It was equipped with everything we needed and very well furnished. The location was amazing since it backed up to the state park and we sat out on the patio in the mornings & evenings to see the deer. We used the den in the back as a 3rd bedroom since it has the nice sleeper sofa & it was perfect for our teen boys. We can't say enough good things about our stay and are actually planning to reserve it again this summer.

This place was awesome! We were able to grill in the back patio area and watch the deer in the park. It is well furnished and the kitchen has everything you need. We loved having the golf cart getting to and from the beach. It was very clean when we arrived and had plenty of linens for the week. Bill was great to work with and gave me all the information that I needed before arriving.

A Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We have a family of 4, (two teenagers), We had more than enough room. The house was just as Bill and Cyndi had described. It was nice and neat and provided everything that we would have needed in our own house. Bill was wonderful to work with. He answered all our question quickly.

It was nice that the House backed the State Park, we had no house right behind this one. Just as Bill described; we saw 3 does, 1 big Buck, turtles, and squirrels in the State Parks that is in the back yard.It was very enjoyable watching the wildlife in the evening.

The golf cart that is provided to use, was wonferful. We used it everyday to get around the park and to get over to the beach. it was so nice to be able to transport everything to the beach and not get all the sand in our car.

We would highly recommand the rental unit. we would most definantly rent from Bill and Cyndi again.

Clean and well equipped beach home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Bill & Cyndi's beach home. We weren't sure what to expect from Venture Out since it was our first time staying on the property but it was nice to have several options for entertainment, especially with small children. We enjoyed using the golf cart to get around the Venture Out site, the playground was loved by our 2 year old and we all enjoyed the gulf front pool and private beach.

The home was very clean and well equipped. You can tell someone had lived there previously as it had everything one might need and then some. We liked that the sunroom could be closed off and used as a 3rd bedroom.

Bill was extremely easy to work with, quick to respond to any call and inquiry we had and made the rental experience go very smoothly. Thank you!
