We are a young family and have always enjoyed watching sunsets on every trip we take around the world. We have the most beautiful sunsets off our balcony at our beach house.
Owner purchased this House in 2006
Why Owner chose West Panama City Beach
We built this house as a gathering place to vacation with our family and friends and knew we would be able to create many beach memories. Inlet Beach is a quiet neighborhood community perfectly located between Rosemary Beach and Panama City Beach.
What makes this House unique
Gorgeous sunsets from our house. It is nice to take a walk to the beach, and come back to the house and rinse off in the pool. Inlet Beach is great for biking and walking.

Beautiful Home-Fun Time
We had a great time in this beautiful home. It is spacious and gorgeous! The kitchen is well stocked with all appliances. The beds are very comfortable. There is plenty of parking. We had a wonderful time!!
Nice house at a nice price
We visit this part of 30A every year, so we have a decent grasp of the market and expectations. This house was more affordable than most other rentals for our sized group. Inlet Beach is literally right next door to Rosemary, which we like to frequent. We did have a larger group (8 adults / 11 kids), that tested the house's capacity in several ways. The rental cites that it sleeps 23, but I don't see anyway that's possible. There are beds for 15 if you include the pool house bedroom. We had several folks sleeping in sofas and on the floor. Additionally, there were no sheets for at least two beds (downstairs pull-out sofa & closet bunk). The silverware also came up short for a group of our size. It should be restocked to match the listed capacity. The kitchen was however well stocked with kitchen prep tools and plates. The ice makers were nice too. Enjoy.
Mara Vista Vacation
Our stay at the Mara Vista included 5 families. Even with 22 people the home was very spacious and each family had their own bedroom and private bathroom! The location and short walk to the private beach (even with little children) will bring me back. After spending the week on the powdery white squeaky sand beach, I see myself deciding on this part of the Florida Gulf coast rather than other areas of Florida. Being in between Panama City Beach and Destin gives you the best of everything to choose from as far as restaurants, shopping and fishing! The Kitchen appliances made me feel like I was in a state-of-the-art Kitchen! There were multiple mini fridges and a wine cooler that kept our drinks cold! Even the swimming pool and hot tub were large enough for our many kids and adults. Adrienne was very helpful and accommodating before and during our stay. We loved the Mara Vista and can't wait to go back!
Great memories, great house, great vacation
My husband and I have taken our kids and their friends to Mara Vista every year for years ! It's a beautiful home with space for everyone to spread out. Each room in the house is well maintained and beautifully decorated. Every bedroom has it's own bath. The beach is gorgeous. We made the short walk to Rosemary (a couple of blocks) everyday to hit the Sugar shack or Cowgirl Kitchen. Great bike riding path for miles. This feels like an old Florida vacation before huge condos and spring break hit this area. Love it love it!
We spent a week at Mara Vista this past summer and loved it! This 3 story home is great for large families or a multiple family vacation; everyone will have plenty of room and their own space. Rarely is what you see in the pictures actually better in real life, but this was definitely the case. The home was truly perfect for our vacation with a private pool and being literally steps from the beach. It took maybe a minute from the back gate to having your feet in the soft white sand, a very easy walk we did several times a day with our two teenagers. The kids want to make this our annual vacation spot. George, the owner, was wonderful to work with in helping make sure we had a great family vacation. I highly recommend his home to anyone looking for a great beach vacation in a perfect location!
My family had an excellent getaway at Mara Vista! It is a beautiful spacious home. The kitchen is huge and great for entertaining. The beach is a short walk away. If you feel like chilling, the pool is excellent too. And best of all, you don't have to drive. You have shops and wonderful restaurants in Rosemary. We will definitely be going back!
