I love Carol and Billy. I could not have been luckier to stay with these two kind hearted people. They made me feel comfortable like I was at my own house! They go over and beyond to make your stay everything that it should be. Their house is beautiful and their backyard is awesome! They have all sorts of beach goodies incase you forget your own, and they will give you everything you need to know to get around the city!
Also, if you are lucky, their sweet dog Gifford may crawl in bed with you! They are lucky that I didn't take him home with me! 3
Carol and Billy's home was one of our most favorite stays through air bNb. Honestly! And no, it wasn't just because of the bed, which had to be the most comfortable thing I've ever slept on. They not only made us feel at home, but like family, from the time they opened the door. Also, they had beach chairs and an umbrella at the ready all set to go go our beach fun which made our packing for the beach a breeze. Billy's breakfast each morning was delightful, especially outside on their back deck. We would highly recommend staying with Carol and Billy!!!! (and Gifford and Moonie-dog/cat).
Well you probably have read all the rave reviews and every visitor is spot on! Bill and Carols suite is a wonderful Panama city beach getaway. Close to Pier Park an awesome open mall with everything you could ever need and maybe three minutes away from the beach. Then you can come "home" to some of the best southern hospitality in the South! Highlight's: Carols gracious spirit, Bill's world famous pancakes, and cute (want to steal) cat & dog. Summary: Just go!
If you are thinking of staying here, do so!! Carol, Billy and their dog Gifford truly make you feel part of the family! This was my our first vacation together and our first Airbnb experience . We stayed a whole week in their home. We would do it again in a heartbeat! Billy was great at making us breakfast of some sort every morning. They were a joy to get to know and become part our family. We had family in town as well and they invited all 10 of them over to have a BBQ. We loved that they joined us and got to meet our family! There home is perfect and was even better then the pictures look! We took their paddle boat out several times trying to catch fish and enjoy the senery! I enjoyed using the hammocks to read (while my super awesome stud of a boyfriend was out fishing in big ol ocean! (His words) ) The neighborhood was quiet and charming! This place truly felt like home! We hope to stay in contact with Carol and Billy for years to come!

What an unforgettable experience! Carol and Billy were such a delight to spend our vacation with. We felt right at home like we were with family or old friends. Being so close to the beach, we were able to bike and enjoy all the sun that Carol "ordered up" for us. Also, her pets are very well behaved and a great addition to an already wonderful home. We'll definitely be staying with these two again if we are back in PCB!
It was delightful place to stay! The location was great with a lake close by and the beach just down the road. Hosts were simply wonderful and made excellent pancakes! Super tasty. And they had pets in case you miss yours while being away :) definitely will return and recommend! It was perfect staying with locals to help find things to do as well.
What a wonderful place to stay! Carol and Billy were the consummate hosts... friendly, laid-back, intelligent. Made us feel at home immediately and we felt like a member of the family. We had all of the privacy we wanted, but we enjoyed visiting with them and getting to know them. We were in town for the Seabreeze Jazz Fest so we were gone a good part of the long weekend. We actually wish we had not been so busy so we could have spent more time with them! They had a nice friendly, laid-back dog (Gifford) and a sweet older kitty. They never bothered us in any way and we enjoyed their company.
The bedroom was very nice. Comfortable bed, nice closet with hangers, a chest of drawers. Reading lamps next to each bed. Ceiling fan. Very relaxing environment. Everything was very, very clean. Bathroom had nice linens, great shower. There was a nice separate sitting room with a TV with DVD player. We never got a chance to use it, but it would be a nice place to relax and unwind and watch TV.
If you want privacy, Carol and Billy are great with that and let us set the tone for the visit. They never intruded and let us do what we wanted to do.
There was coffee, great banana bread, and fresh fruits for breakfast. Bagels and creamed cheese, and eggs if we wanted them. Perfect in every way! We would definitely recommend Billy and Carol's lovely home as a place to stay. You may come as a stranger, but you will definitely leave as a friend/family member! We will definitely come back when we visit the Panama City Beach area.
Great location within close driving distance to the beautiful beaches. Plenty to do. Shopping, restaurants. Safe location. Highly recommended! Rate it a 12 out of 10!
About the Host, Carol
My husband and I enjoy opening our home to other people. We have participated in many years of exchange students and Rotary exchange programs from around the world. We have been involved in non-profit work most of our 33 years of marriage. Our grown children living in urban areas on the other end of the continent, have always brought their friends to our door as they grew up. So we continue to open our home to others. I enjoy photography and working with young families. My husband, Billy, enjoys fishing and good conversations. We are casual and very laid back when it comes to having guests in our home.
