This is the perfect place for a family who needs space but wants to be close to the action.

The "Schoolhouse Rocks" is so named because it's across the street from the elementary school I attended, but it's YOU who will be schooling OTHERS with your smart decision to stay in town and not on the beach with the crazy crowds and traffic!

Located in St. Andrews and close to the bay, downtown Panama City, and lots of great restaurants and bars. You'll give it an A PLUS!

The space

2 Queen-sized beds and 1 comfy Twin means 5 people can sleep comfortably. The kitchen has new appliances and all the basics you will need.

NEED MORE THAN 3 BEDROOMS? A cozy attached apartment, complete with 2 bedrooms with full-sized beds, a living area, a kitchen, and a full bath can be rented separately. See that listing to book separately or in addition to this 3/1.5 home. Combine both rentals, and get FIVE BEDROOMS and 2.5 BATHS - WOWZA!

Guest access

The whole house is yours for your stay! You can also access a shared laundry space in the garage, complete with an iron and ironing board should you need it. Beach chairs and a cooler will make your trip to the shore more enjoyable. Please rinse off the sand when you're done so the next guest can enjoy them, too. A keypad on the door means no key to lose. Your own keypad code ensures your safety.

Interaction with guests

I'm just 5 blocks away should you need me, but I assume you'll be self-sufficient unless I hear otherwise. An email or a text will get my attention. Don't hesitate to contact me with questions, and I'm happy to provide recommendations for local restaurants and attractions.

Other things to note

I will rent to people under 25 as long as I meet you in person when you arrive and give you the "hairy eyeball". I used to teach middle school, so you KNOW what I'm talking about! I'll show you my home and the rules and expect all to be well.

Off-street (driveway) parking can fit up to 4 cars. There is also space on the street in front of the house.

Parking spaces and the garage are shared with the front house, but there's plenty of room for everyone. Locking doors keep both parties safe.

This house was perfect for our stay! We are graduate students staying for an extended time in Panama City to complete clinical rotations at local offices and hospitals and needed a place to stay that was both convenient for work and the beach, and this place was perfect. It's an easy 15 minute drive to the beach while also being close to for work.

My family and I stayed two nights at this lovely home. We were in communication with the host the entire time. Everything was as accurate as the pictures displayed. I could not answer if the house was close to public transportation or not because we were in our vehicle. There are many restaurants in close proximity: some privately owned businesses and plenty restaurants with mames that you will recognize. Shopping centers and movie theaters were near, and even though the house is on a street with other houses, the neighborhood is extremely quiet and there are only three or four other houses on the street. I would definitely stay here again if we visit.

Great location with a quick ride across the bridge to the beach! Close to restaurants in downtown Panama City! Jan was easily accessible during the trip. Nice comfortable beds. Nice plus to have washer/dryer and beach chairs/toys for the beach. My 1st Airbnb experience! I will definitely use this location and suggest to family and friends. Thanks Jan!

Had an amazing week living like a local Panama resident, no traffic just all of the amazing fun and food a family could ask for! The Bagel Maker and Bayou Joe's should be a must do for a perfect vacation as well as a Saturday visit to the local market down on the bay!! Our family came and stayed at the beach and spent $$$$ on their rental, I feel we had the same fabulous vacation but without the headache of traffic. Thanks Jan for the use of your home in creating these great memories with our kids!!

Response from Jan:
Thank you, Miranda! I love hearing stories like this one. So many people think they HAVE to stay on the beach, but there are definite advantages to NOT doing that (and the beach is still there if you want to go to it!). I love that you gave some recommendations as well. That's what makes Airbnb so great!

Inspired by my success renting a lovely little duplex in St. Andrews since early 2015, I moved back home from Houston, TX after 33 years away. I now have multiple properties to rent out so I can host more fabulous guests like YOU!

I've included photos and tips for enjoying my homes and my favorite places nearby. Thanks for looking, and thank you for your business!

I'm an Airbnb user AND host!
