Overview

About the property

Four bedroom + sunroom, 3 bath (Sleeps 13)

From your front door parking spot you have less than a two minute walk to the most beautiful sugar white sand beaches in the world.

Our Home is one of six on the property. The Home has nearly 2200 square feet of spacious living. It's just been completely repainted and is beautifully furnished. There are 3 levels. The two upper floors are fully carpeted, while the first floor has bamboo flooring throughout. All bathrooms have ceramic tile floors.

There are 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms.

On the 1st level you will find the living room which has a queen size sleeper-sofa, dining room, fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, washer and dryer, full bath and a bedroom with a queen size bed and access to a small patio.

The master bedroom is located on the 2nd level. The master bath includes a walk-in shower and garden tub. There are two other bedrooms on the second floor. One with a bunk-over-full bed, the other with a queen bed. You will also find a shared full bath on this level.

The 3rd level is a spacious sun room with a TV, full size futon and access to a deck which has breathtaking views of the gulf.

The house only 15 mintue from the new Regional Regional Airport, serving Panama City and the beach area. Pier Park, featured on the travel channel, and Frank Brown Park are only a short drive from the house. Pier Park is an open mall with some of the finest shops and dining in the South. The mall also has a 16 screen cinema with comfortable seating. Wide seats and isles help those of us who need a little extra room. Thomas' Donut and Snack Shop (also featured on the travel channel) is a short walk from the house. Carousel Supermarket, a big hit with the locals for its fine wine selection, is also near by. It is just a short drive to scenic 30A with Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Watercolor Resort, quaint shops, fine dining and an outdoor theater.

About Norman Dennis

I am currently a civil engineering professor at the University of Arkansas (Go Hogs), and am nearing the end of a second career. Prior to joining the the university I spent 25 years wandering around the world as member of the US Army.

Norman Dennis purchased this house in 2012

Why Norman Dennis chose Laguna Beach

This is a place we can bring the entire extended family and live comfortably for a few days or a month at a time. The secondary reason for purchasing this property was the thought of spending time in the winter months in a slightly warmer part of the country. However, the real reason for buying the place was to be close to some of our grandkids.

What makes this house unique

All you have to do is go to the third floor deck and take in the view of the Gulf to the south and the lake to the east to see why anyone would want to come and live here. It is literally a two minute walk to the beach and you don't have to deal with slow elevators, mammoth parking structures and the long lines associated with condo living.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Second year in a row for 3 families (10 total) to stay in this house over the 4th of July week. Great house in a great location about 3 miles from the center of Panama City Beach . Being a little ways away is nice because it's less congested/commercialized and traffic is much better. At the same time you are close to anywhere you want to go. The house is about 100 yards from one of the main boardwalk entrances to the beach, so it's an easy walk with you Beach gear. Also, the landlord, Norm, is very helpful, organized and accommodating.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO. From beginning to end, renting this wonderful vacation home was a simple and organized process. This property was clean and it had everything our family needed to be comfortable away from home and right across the street from the beach! We will definitely return soon!

Overall the property was clean, quiet, convenient.

  • 4 of 5

Pros: very short walk to beach, quiet area, not congested no nearby large condos. Short drive to pier park and other restaurants. Overall great house for larger family or 2 families.

Cons: only place to wash sand off is outside hose which is in pine needles which make it difficult not to track into the hose. No place to store beach supplies as there is no outdoor storage/garage etc. there are 2 dedicated 2 deep parking places this is sufficient but others don't always respect this and may park in your spots.

Owner is very easy to work with and very responsive. Would recommend to others.

We had a lovely time.

The property was a good fit for us and met our needs. It was a quick walk to the beach and out of the hustle and bustle but still close to everything.

Great place to stay. Perfect location lots of room.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The property is in a good location, close enough to shopping and eateries without being in the traffic and crowds. There was 8 adults and 5 children in our group and we had plenty of room. We had a blast, would definitely recommend it.
