Unique Benefits

King sized fully remote controlled adjustable bed in master bedroom
About a quarter mile of beach almost to yourselves. The closest thing to old time Florida.

Why Kids Love It

Very secluded beach for hunting crabs, fishing from shore and building sandcastles. Enough beach to play football, baseball or volleyball without disturbing anyone. So go fly a kite too! Various beach toys available in the storage area.

Area Information

My wife and I came down to PCB to visit her parents while they wintered just down the road from our townhouse. While walking the beach shore, we noticed a townhouse was listed for sale. After falling in love with the panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico from the top deck, we decided to purchase and remodel it. The white sands are breath taking and the shoreline changes every year. The color of the ocean can change daily. During certain times of the year you can watch an amazing sunrise and sunset over the ocean on the same day. This area maybe the last of old Florida with sand dunes, sea oats and then the beach leading to the sea shore.
On a busy holiday week, you may be the only group on the beach for 500 yards each way. Watch the dolphins swim by from the top deck off the master bedroom. Surf fish down by the old pier out front of the unit. Have lunch on the lower deck while enjoying the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves hitting the shore. This is truly paradise.

Memphis, TN

Vision of Paradise is truly a gem!

This is our second year of staying at Vision of Paradise. We stayed in this area for 10 years straight between 2000 and 2010 on this very road. Love the lack of crowd in this area. Vision of Paradise is a tastefully decorated townhouse, love the beach decor throughout. We love the covered over deck off of the living room and the open deck off of the master bedroom, our dog loved being out on both decks enjoying the breeze and view. Couldn't ask for better views. Love the new upgrades to both bedrooms. This place is pet friendly which is a plus for us since we travel with our small dog. Everything is provided for your stay in this rental. Very reasonably priced for a beachfront unit. Close to 30A and Panama City Beach. Hope to return next summer and would love to stay for two weeks sometime in the future. Thanks Chris for providing a great place for a nice, relaxing restful stay.

Madison, AL

Perfect location

If you want to see what this area of Northwest Florida looked like 30 years ago, stay here!Most of the area has been built up to the shoreline and dunes are a rare sight. But here at Inlet Beach you have the towering dunes, graceful sea oats, and a wide swath of sugar-white sand that the entire area offered years ago. It is gorgeous. The two decks in this condo give you amazing views - from the lower one you see the dunes and Gulf behind; from the upper one you have a panoramic view of paradise. You will not be disappointed!The condo sits in an area between 30A and Panama City Beach giving you easy access to both with the added bonus, and perhaps the best thing about this condo, of an uncrowded beach that is steps away from the front door. No flip flops needed. Just walk out the door and you are steps from the sand.The host is very easy to work with and most gracious. My husband and I visit this area often and are delighted to have found this gem. We will definitely return to this condo!

Nashville, TN

Perfect location!

This was our 3rd trip to Inlet Beach. We have stayed in one of the other townhomes twice but this was our first stay at Chris's place and it was perfect! The views from both balconies are amazing! You are literally just steps away from the beach. The townhome was so clean and exactly as described. The kitchen is furnished with everything you need to cook and eat in. We will definitely be back!

Beachfront and Quiet

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at Vision of Paradise. On the beach in a quiet neighborhood. You can be on the sand in 30 seconds or just sit on the upstairs balcony and enjoy the sun and watch the surf. We did both!! Great sunsets. Kitchen has everything. Love the giant capacity washer/dryer. Chris was extremely easy to work with. We will be back to stay again.

I am so happy you were able to enjoy your stay at our townhouse as much as my family has. We never get tired of the ocean view from the top balcony.
