Aqua-Holic Beach House 4817 Spyglass Dr.

Beachfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
This nostalgic beachfront home overlooks the white sugar sand beach of the Emerald Coast. With interior views of the ocean from the kitchen, living room, and both bedrooms, you are in for a treat! Private parking is right in front of the house, and you can enjoy one level throughout. If you have a large party, a 1 bedroom cottage is available on the same lot. **Note** The cottage is a separate listing and must be booked separately. You can find it at this link.

Both bedrooms have gorgeous views of the ocean with a sliding glass door entrance to the back deck. The fully furnished kitchen is complete with granite countertops and all upgraded stainless steel appliances. The master bathroom includes a decorative tile shower with upgraded cabinets. Porcelain tile flooring is installed throughout the home for easy cleanup. The laundry room is equipped with a full washer and dryer. Parking is available for up to 3 cars or 3 SUVs (max) and there are no stairs or elevators to deal with. This property is not across the street from the beach, you are literally on the beach. This is good ole' Jimmy Buffet-style beachfront living at its best!

For convenience, a keyless entry system is installed with private codes for each guest. The lock pad includes a 30 second auto lock system to ensure security while you're away. Cable tv and wireless internet are provided throughout the house. Download your favorite Kindle book or finish some work on your laptop as you sit on the deck and enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Enjoy a sunset on the balcony as you watch your children build a sandcastle right in front of you.

You can enjoy the peace and quiet of the ocean breeze, or take a short trip to enjoy the amusement parks, nightlife, fishing, and shopping that is available in Panama City Beach. Grocery stores and drug stores are conveniently located within a short distance from this house. St. Andrew's state park is a couple of blocks by bicycle or car, or you can enter from the beachside as you take an evening stroll. Whatever you are looking for, this home has it all.

There is a custom gas grill on the deck for cooking out. It is conveniently located between the 2 bedroom house and the 1 bedroom cottage. This grill is free to use for the guests of Aqua-Holic beach house and Aqua-Holic cottage. It is the responsibility of the guest to make sure that the grill is properly attended to and turned off and cleaned after use.

5/5 Excellent

So nice
This is a classic beach house...It felt like the ones from my childhood but upgraded a bit in all the right ways. It had its quirks and the layout was funny but it had everything we needed, the location was fabulous, and the owner was super responsive. It actually had a rollaway bed in the closet which I wished I would have known in advance (maybe there was a note and I missed it). The beach was not too crowded, even with the proximity to the public access and it being a holiday weekend. I also appreciated that the checkout instructions allowed you to start the dishwasher as you left instead of having to run it and put it away all in the morning before you leave--that's always tough to get done but no problem here. I really have no complaints and would absolutely stay here again. My husband, kids, and I had a fantastic time in this house!

3/5 Okay

Good location…not the cleanest
You are paying to be “right on” the beach, which is super convenient. Note that it is a public beach—wasnt an issue except we had someone laying up under the house one day whom I asked to move, as I just didn’t like the idea of a stranger laying under house. However, this has nothing to do with my rating of this property. The porch was in order, but the inside of the house was not clean. As a frequent traveler, I tend to do “extra” cleaning upon arrival, and I immediately noticed the bed sheets in master bedroom. They were covered in hair…I can understand how a hair or two can transfer after washing, but there were lots of hairs (long and short), all the way down to foot of bedsheets, and sheets were wrinkled (obviously not washed). You could tell the house has not been dusted in quite some time as dust was caked on TVs, behind TVs, ceiling fans, air vents, etc. We all stayed sick the entire time. We had one used roll of toilet paper left for us and none other (usually, anywhere I have stayed has one unused roll of toilet paper to start with). When looking for a cookie sheet the next morning, we pulled out a cookie sheet in oven drawer that had left over cinnamon roll icing on it. As soon as I noticed the bedsheets and noticeable dust (it was apparent to all of us, so Not just me being “picky”), I contacted owner. She did reply, and offered to have the maid return which I appreciate, but by that time, I had remedied the problem. I did end up calling to get clarification as I received a text stating that they would “appreciate us going ahead and checking out,” even though I was SUPER polite about the state of the house. I decided to call and get clarification of what that text actually meant because I think I know. Husband answered the phone number I was provided and was polite. Before booking this place, I was hesitant because I read all reviews. One review had mentioned the bedsheets not being washed, and even rated the house positively…not a negative review at all, but informing owner of the bedsheets. But, the review was not met with kindness by owner, and the reviewer was even “scolded”. It’s not a good thing when owners can’t take constructive criticism about their properties—I don’t care how many properties one may have. It’s not personal. You learn, grow, and get better—that is, if you care. I was put off that there was no “follow up” or “has everything else been smooth?” check in after that initial shock of the state of the house.

5/5 Excellent

Adorable house on the beach! We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

5/5 Excellent

Just what we were looking for
Great place right on the beach. Enjoyed every minute. Close to shops and restaurants. Relaxing. Definitely will be booking again for another trip in the future. My wife loved it. My kids loved it. Clean and comfy. All great

5/5 Excellent

Great Beachfront Property
This property is great for anyone looking for the convenience of being directly on the beach. There is easy access to the beach from the front door of this house - no hassle of condo building elevators (perfect for kids who need potty or a/c breaks). Parking is also right outside the front door, so it's very quick easy to unload all the luggage/groceries. The views of the ocean from every room in the house are spectacular all day long, and watching the sun setting over the ocean while we were sitting on that back deck was the perfect way to end a long day on the beach. House was very clean and so were the sheets/towels. There are plenty of places nearby to buy cheap beach towels and beach toys, so no need to take up space packing those things. There's also a few good restaurants within walking distance - super easy for getting takeout.
