About Roxanne Nelson/Owner/Manager

I am currently living in Evergreen, Colorado, a mountain community, with my husband. I am an acupuncturist with my own practice, and a stained glass artist.

Roxanne Nelson/Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Roxanne Nelson/Owner/Manager chose Lakeside

I had been vacationing in this area for years. My mother lives down here half time and I just fell in love with the ocean, the beaches and the laid back life style. The locals have a friendly southern manner and seem to get along with everyone. I decided it would be nice to have a vacation home here and rental to share this fun and relaxing place with others.

What makes this house unique

The reason I chose this particular house was the lay out of it. I loved the kitchen and the privacy of the master bedroom off the kitchen in the back of the house. The yard was a good size and I loved the parking, which has plenty of room for an RV or a boat. I loved that it was close to the water and I enjoy watching the ducks walking around the neighborhood. I liked the quiet surroundings and the walks in the neighborhood. And the fact that I can just cross the bridge and there are the big beautiful beaches with all the action and beach activities. But, there is fun to be had in St. Andrews Bay as well. The Historical town, festivals, restaurants, antique shops, the small town feeling and fishing!

Owner's Response: I always appreciate when guests treat my home with such respect. They were truly a joy to have as guests. I'm so glad they enjoyed my cozy home and quiet neighborhood. But, so close to all the fun of Panama City, Florida.

Was such a charming little house and the neighborhood was very nice. Plenty of room in the back yard for the kids and right down the road from the beach. We surely will book it again if and when we come back to Panama City.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Quaint little 3br/2ba house in a quiet neighborhood. It is close enough to get to anywhere on Panama city beach quickly, but away from the busyness and congestion of being on Front Beach Rd. We Loved it!

Owner's Response: It is great to be in a quiet neighborhood but to have the convenience of shopping and the beaches near by. Thanks for staying in my vacation rental and hope you return in your future travels. I would love to have you and your family back again.

It was just what we needed. It was close to town and not far from all the attractions we visited.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay in my vacation home. It is a good location when you want to get away from the crowds and relax. But just minutes away from all the attractions, shopping, restaurants and beaches. Please come stay again in the future!

My home is located in a quiet neighborhood of Historical St. Andrews Bay. Only twelve minutes away from all the action of beautiful Panama city beach. White sandy beaches and fun attractions for all family and friends. Just 1/2 block from the home is Huntington Lake a small finger from the big bay. Close to one of the best oyster bars in town, Hunts Oyster Bar. If that's not your taste, across the street from Hunts, is a fine dining seafood restaurant the Shrimp boat. Sit on the docks and enjoy the beautiful sunset and a view of the beautiful marina and the bay. Next door is Uncle Ernies, another local restaurant. Live music on the upper deck. Many things to do and whatever your interests are you will find them here. In October the big motorcycle rally is in town. Spring breakers in the spring and family fun all year round. A must to relax!
