Description

Tired of the crowds and congestion on 30A, Destin & Panama City?

Contact the Owner for offseason 3 or 4 night deals - This awesome home comfortably sleeps 14-16 people in a truly fabulous location on the beach side of 30A. The three-story home features gulf views and is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood on a large corner lot South of 30A that is convenient to the beach, bike paths, restaurants and coffee shops. This home has it all, very comfortable updated home, private pool, location and not a large crowd at the beach access.

LOCATION: The beach access is just steps away (seriously only 150 yards) with no busy roads to cross and has showers and bathrooms too. This is a quiet residential neighborhood location without the crowds from condo’s or high density locations such as Seaside or Destin, but the location is also close enough to them that you can get there easily. When you are not at the beach, you can relax in the beautiful large landscaped yard that contains a large 32'X16' swimming pool that is spacious enough for large family gatherings. Walk across the street to the fresh seafood market and grill your dinner on the gas grill provided for your use. 

FEATURES: Style, amenities, and spaciousness combine to make 'Beach Buddy' one of the most sought after beach homes in the area for a relaxing and memorable family vacation. Comfortable, 'Beachy' decor!  Decorative details and upgrades happen continuously and feature original art works by local and international artists, impressive updated furnishings not normally found in typical vacation homes and a well-stocked kitchen as well as upgraded beds and linens, etc.
BEDROOMS, ETC: Wrap-around decks on the second and third floors are great for entertaining and watching the sunsets. Great family home! Home features a massive farm table with seating for 10 and even more seating for meals at the counter. Master Bedroom Suite is on the top floor with a private bath, two decks, a king size bed and even a hammock. The 2nd Master Bedroom Suite is also on the top floor, a private bath, deck and a queen size bed.

Looking for a Beach Buddy you can trust? Here you go!    Jun 09, 2018




If you are looking for a tremendous vacation home to rent from an outstanding property owner, STOP HERE!!!! you’ve found it! We lived in the area from ‘91- ‘97 and have vacationed in the 30A stretch ever since. We’ve learned that renting vacation properties can be tricky- but the best experience comes when both parties view it as a mutually beneficial relationship based on reciprocal faith. Steve and Shirley Linahan understand this and deliver BIG TIME. Having a lovely family themselves, they really know what is required for a successful family vacation! The necessities: an abundantly, well-stocked kitchen, a clean, bug free house, lots of beach equipment AND a sturdy wagon to take it all to the beach, outdoor hoses, a clean pool with lots of toys and chairs AND a LOCKING GATE! There are clean linens, paper goods and cleaning supplies so you don’t have to go to the store immediately. When you combine all this with a fantastic location and warm hospitality to boot, why would you go anywhere else? Thank you again, Steve and Shirley- you have no rival in our opinion!

Great House for a Large Family Gathering!    Jun 02, 2018




We had lots of room for multiple families. Since the bedrooms are spread out; two 'masters' on the top floor, one bedroom on the middle floor, and two bedrooms on the bottom floor, we could put the babies and the children to bed early, and not disturb their sleep. Bringing a baby monitor was helpful. ( there is a baby gate there - which we used!)

Every floor has multiple balconies; from a porch with a dining table overlooking the pool on the middle floor, a private porch with a hammock and chairs off the main master on the 3rd floor, and chairs on the more narrow balconies - perfect for morning coffee or afternoon reading when you wanted a little 'away' time.

The kitchen is a little small, but it is obvious that was done to make room for the large dining table, where we had plenty of room for big family meals (many houses we looked at had dining for only 6 people at the table - so this large dining area was a big plus.) The family area is adjacent to the dining area, so there is plenty of room for game playing and conversation.

The kitchen is fully stocked, and we made big meals everyday. Lots of china and flatware, and every serving bowl, pitcher, colander, pot, pan we needed was there - including a slow cooler, an electric griddle, and a blender.

The house is on the corner of the street, so the walk to the beach is a straight shot. We always walked it, but when needed, it was extremely easy to jump in the car for drop offs or pick ups. (We got caught in rain storms a couple of times - and found shelter under the two large beach pavilions until someone from the house could come pick us up!)

There is a life-guard stand there at the end of the boardwalk, and they were helpful in terms of warning of coming storms. Only houses in this area, so the beach was never too crowded. A shower and bath house also there at boardwalk.

The house has lots of lawn chairs and a cart (as well as a house cooler) for carrying belongings to the beach. A washer and dryer made it easy to keep our own beach towels clean.

The Ice Cream shop is literally right behind the house - very convenient to walk to after dinner!

I highly recommend this house, and the location. We had everything we needed for a great vacation!Submitted Jun 18, 2018
