  • What makes panama city beach and 30a's beaches so much better than other beaches?

    To many, a beach is just a beach. They’re wrong. The emerald green waters of Florida’s Panhandle and Northern Gulf Coast are stunning and second to none. Combine this with the fact that all along the panhandle’s coast are beaches proclaimed as, “The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches.” This is due mainly because of our beautiful Sugar White Sandy Beaches. The sand is so white and so soft here, that this rarity, because it truly is a rarity, is compared to powdered sugar. No where else in the world will you be able to find sand that has gained such popularity for it’s purity and comfort ability.

    No! Not at all! The media often likes to portray Panama City Beach as a drunken onslaught of college kids parading their way down to our beaches and wreaking havoc along the Gulf Coast. Let me be clear: Panama City Beach is not a breeding ground for binge-drinking teens. In Bay County, our Sheriff’s Office and many other Local Officials have cleaned up our less-than-laudable past and in doing so the Initiative to “Clean Our Beaches” has succeeded. We have almost entirely eliminated the irresponsible usage of Alcohol on the sandy beaches – See Here. We take great pride in our beaches and we care very deeply for the people who come here. All any of us here in the beach community want is for: People being safe and enjoying themselves while they are here. Although, many are worried these policies are negatively effecting our thriving Service Industry, most people feel these changes have proffered a community where family’s are safe and people from any background can enjoy Panama City Beach, whatever time of year. The effects of changing certain Alcohol Policies has made a lasting impression for the community, as a whole.

    Our Reservation Disaster Policy Currently we do not refund if a hurricane or other natural disaster occurs. That being said, certain circumstances might preclude a different arrangement that satisfies all participating parties. Fortunately, we also provide a service – located in one of the sections before completing your reservation – that protects you against a number of events that would otherwise keep you from enjoying your stay in one of our rentals. This service is highly recommended by our team and many other Vacation Rental Websites. CSA Travel Insurance provided by the insurance gurus at Generali Travel Insurance, is the insurance company that provides coverage for these incidents. The plan takes a small percentage of the overall price of any reservation cost, but the benefits are extensive and covers almost any disaster that might occur. In addition, the plan will also refund your money for any personal issue, work-related scheduling, injury, or any reason at all interferes with the scheduling of the reservation.

    No, it is not okay. The reason we have a limit on the amount of people any unit or home can have is due to obvious legal reasons enforced by the local, state, and federal law and code enforcement. Our hope is that both our party and all participating parties stay within their legal rights and have a good time as well. There are many hazards by allowing too many people to stay in any one place. In the event of a fire: the time it takes for one home or unit exiting the building, exponentially increases with every additional person. These policies are here for your safety and we hope to alleviate any concerns for your safety by following them.
