Why Terry Slocum chose West Panama City Beach
Doodlebug is 100 yards from the beach, in a gated community with a day time guard, which is great for children who want to play outside. Two of the most beautiful communities in Florida are adjacent to Doodlebug which are Alys Beach, and Rosemary Beach. There are great restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Wonderful beach vacation!
We love how close the house is to dining and shopping in Rosemary. The short walk to the beach and pool is nice. Basically everything you need is there for you...2 bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, grill, and bathroom amenities! The house is beautiful and very clean. We enjoyed our stay at Doddlebug and will definitely be back!
My wife and three kids stayed here for our second trip to the Rosemary Beach area. In short, just enough room and the location was excellent (beach access just down the private street with no need to cross any roads).
Ideal beach getaway
We stayed a week at Doodlebug again, the location and quaintness just can't be beat. The bikes, beach chairs, pool and short walk to the beach are the main reasons we keep coming back. Love, love love the house and its proximity to the farmers market in Rosemary, shops and restaurants!
Enjoyed out stay at the "Doodlebug" so much that we would definitely go back. Very clean and comfortable. Very nicely decorated with only a few steps to the pool and beach. Also, a very safe area in a gated community.
Lovely vacation home in a great secure neighborhood
Lovely vacation home in a great neighborhood! The location is perfect for families who want to be close to the beach and close to shops and restaurants. The home is very clean and nicely decorated. 2 bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach towels are a big plus! A lot less to pack. We would definitely recommend. Owners very responsive and helpful.Parking a bit tight for an SUV.
The whole package!
We've stayed at Doodlebug twice now and just love it. The convenience to the beach along with the proximity to Seacrest and Rosemary shopping/restaurant districts is priceless! The kids love using the bikes and boogie boards and my husband and I love the beach chairs. It comes with everything we need for a very comfortable week of rest and relaxation!
