About Beth Ehrie

I'm an Interior Designer who loves travel and food. The picture here shows my last trip to Napa along with my folks, Bob and Laurie. I feel pretty strongly about making a difference in people's lives, and believe in "leaving someone better than when I found" them. My nephew and niece created the word "Qweekie" to describe me, meaning quirky, crazy, creative, and fun.

Beth Ehrie purchased this studio in 2010

Why Beth Ehrie chose Florida Panhandle

We chose Origin for it's South Sea's feel and the convenient proximity to Pier Park.

What makes this studio unique

Check out the Neighborhood... We chose this condo for it's location! Panama City Beach is known for it's laid back beach lifestyle. If you have the good fortune to plan a trip around one of Pier Park's exceptional events, make sure not to miss it! The New Years Eve Beach Ball Drop is a sight to behold. The beaches are sugar white sand with emerald green water; they don't call it the "Emerald Coast" for nothing!

If you have time, schedule a day for a leisurely drive down Scenic 30A. This beautiful area is the home to the villages of Seaside and Grayton Beach.

Getting around Panama City Beach is fairly straightfoward. There is a basic trolley service and several small vehicle rentals. If you're interested in really exploring the area, I'd recommend a car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Beth,

I just wanted to tell you that we loved your condo. It was just right for our needs. The water was beautiful and everything was close by. We had a great time!

We hope to visit Panama City again in the future!

Thanks for everything!

Very convenient and family friendly location.

My son and I had a wonderful time at this property. The room was a small studio that was great for the two of us. Check-in was easy and access to the beach wasn't problem...even with the traffic. I would recommend this property.

Our rental was clean and spacious! Perfect for our short family getaway. The beach view was awesome! Would definitely like to rent again! I rated 4/5, because the carpet could use a cleaning, Other than that...GREAT!

Owner's Response: I"m so glad you had a wonderful time! Make sure to let me know when you want to visit again. We do a discount for repeat guests. I apologize about the carpet. It's less than a year old, but the months of June and July are virtually impossible to get in to deep clean it between guests. I'll be passing the comment along to the management company so that it will be on their radar. See you next time! Beth

Great Little Place

  • 4 of 5

This was such a great place! It was so nice and clean, and a great size for 4 people!

Check in was a little confusing, but the folks at the desk were able to help us and get it sorted out no problem! They were great!

The room, although not directly on the beach, still had a wonderful view of the beach! It also over looked the pool, which was nice! I loved sitting out and reading listening to the ocean, and the music playing at the pool! It was just a short walk across the street to the beach! It was in great walking distance from lots of restaurants and shops! The little kitchenette was awesome! It was stocked with all of the basics!

Overall it was a great little space and I'll definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Hi Miley, I'm happy that you had a nice stay. I apologize that check in was confusing for you. I usually send a pre-stay email letting our guests know to check in at the resort office across the street from the building. With the additional front desk in the lobby, the natural thing is to try and check in there. I appreciate the great review. Please let me know what we can do to make your next stay 5 stars instead of 4. Thanks, Beth

Charming, clean room with exceptional ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

Great room that is clearly represented on the VRBO website. Super comfortable bed, and a little kitchenette stocked with most necessities. Bring your own coffee, filters, and condiments. Great balcony view of the ocean, pool, and hot tub. Pool and hot tub were very busy most of the time, but noise levels were manageable. So many delicious restaurants and bars around, that we only drove the car once in 4 days. Owner was very helpful and prompt with answering questions about the property/amenities.

Owner's Response: Hi Jessica, We really appreciate your feedback. You're right... it can be super busy on the pool deck, especially during June and July when it's high season. I'm glad they close it all down at 10:00pm! I'd love to know which restaurants you enjoyed. Some of my favorites are Moe's for BBQ and Hook'd for Smoked Tuna Dip, but I'm always open for suggestions. I hope you'll come stay with us again. The months of September and October are actually my favorite time down there. When you want to come back, we'll take 10% off your stay. Thanks for the great review! Beth
