The space
Like us on the Book of Face and follow us on Instagram--Bayhouse Playhouse!

You can also see a VIDEO TOUR of the space on the Book of Face. I walk you through the entire property! Check it out!

This beautiful 2BR, 1BA duplex was my personal vacation home before I moved back to PC in 2016. It was cute and beachy and random for the first 5 years. Then in May 2020, I took advantage of some downtime to give it a much-needed redo, and now it's so fantastic I can't wait to stay in it again myself!

The space is perfect for an individual, a couple, friends traveling together, or a small family wanting a taste of "local life" in Panama City's Historic St. Andrews marina district.

If you're here for work, the space can also accommodate your mobile office in a lovely setting for resting in between the grind.

Wireless Internet will keep you connected if you need to be. A new (in May 2020) 55" Smart TV has apps you can sign into to access your own accounts (Netflix, Hulu, etc.). An antenna brings in local channels for news and whatever's on the local networks. Or turn it off and go outside! You're at the beach! : )

King-sized bed in master, two single beds in 2nd bedroom. Clean full bathroom. Full kitchen with all the basics, including a microwave and dishwasher. Full-sized washer and dryer, too.

Coffee bar with a small Keurig and a larger Mr. Coffee. We try to keep all the coffee fixin's here, too, but please bring your own if you have specific preferences.

Laminate and tile floors; plantation shutters throughout.

Screened-in porch with a comfy daybed (did we mention the cool new wine fridge?), and a sweet backyard for even more space.

Guest access
You have the entire house to yourself during your visit.

PLEASE NOTE: The Bayhouse Playhouse is a duplex property. Unit A, on the right side of the property, is the rental unit. Other owners (full-time residents) occupy Unit B, on the left side.

Other things to note
A Ring Doorbell is installed outside for added safety and security (yours AND mine!). I have access to live and recorded video as needed. There are no other recording devices on the property (but please behave as if there are!). : )

The house has everything you need to for fun in the sun: plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, beach bags, and usually some sand toys. Please feel free to leave clean, usable beach gear (sand toys, floats, etc.) for the next guest if you don't want to lug it home with you.

Location

Panama City, Florida, United States

Only blocks from the bay in two directions, you're within walking distance to many great local restaurants, bars, shops, historic sites, and the St. Andrews Marina.

Take a boat from the marina over to Shell Island, or launch your own.

You're just 7-8 miles from the white sands of Panama City Beach but will sleep peacefully, far from the maddening crowds of tourists, their traffic, and noise.

Plus, you'll have access to neighborhood events, including the Farmer's Market every Saturday year-round (8 am - 1 pm), a huge Mardi Gras parade (usually early February), and a St. Patrick’s Day (and Halloween) pub crawl. We even elect a Dog as Mayor of St. Andrews on Salty Dog Day (last held in February 2020).

For a free, guided walking tour of Historic St. Andrews, visit the Panama City Publishing Co. Museum at 1134 Beck Avenue on Wednesday or Friday at 1:00 p.m.

I'm a longtime Airbnb guest and was one of the very first hosts here in St. Andrews. Because I'm a local myself, I saw the enormous potential of this area early on and wanted to share it with others. I'm now on the board of the Historic St. Andrews Waterfront Partnership, so I'm super invested in seeing this area grow, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it. Whether you're here on business or traveling with a partner, friends, or family, I want to give you a restful place to stay while you explore my beautiful, waterfront hometown. I've also put together a great Guidebook here with lots of tips for "living la vida local". Please check it out, and support our amazing area restaurants, bars, shops, and vendors. Thanks for staying in St. Andrews, and thank you for your business! Like us on the book of Face (Bayhouse Playhouse) and Insta (bayhouseplayhouse), and let's stay connected. When your travel brings you back to Panama City, I'd love to host you again and again!
