Are you a diver (or want to learn), spear fisher, hook & line fisher, golfer, or just love the water? Do you like to relax on the couch and watch the sunset over the water through the back windows? This gorgeous, one level (no steps/stairs) villa has the Panama City Diving charter boat directly 55 steps behind the back deck. The villa is waterside in the exclusive Baypoint Golf & Marina gated subdivision, with the water and marina on one side, and two golf courses on the other side. The golf clubhouse and pro shop are walking distance from the villa. Bricks & Barley restaurant, with its excellent pizzas, calzones, sandwiches, beer and wine selections, and small grocery area, is just 75 steps from the back door. The villa is updated with new appliances, tile floors, new furniture, kitchen totally equipped, new bedding and mattress, new washer & dryer in the unit. Flat screen TV's in living room and both bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, the second bedroom has a full-sized bed (with fantastic water views) and the leather couch turns into a full-size bed. The main bathroom has a walk-in shower. The large back deck has seating/dining area, with umbrella, beside the water and marina! A block down in the neighborhood is access to two public pools located in Sheraton Resort at Flip Flops Bar & Grill by the water, with awesome views and sunsets. Beside Flip Flops is the boardwalk, which leads to Pelicans restaurant above the water, on the boardwalk, which also has amazing sunsets. Next to Pelicans, on the boardwalk, is the dock for the Bay Point Lady, a water shuttle to Shell Island and back. There are also jet ski and pontoon boat rentals there. There are also a Publix (with pharmacy) and Winn-Dixie grocery stores just off Bay Point property. The villa is walking distance to diving, golf, tennis, restaurants, snorkeling tours, charter fishing, other water activities, and tiki bars.
The Steel Slinger, Panama City Diving’s dive charter boat, is docked directly behind the villa. Step out of the back door of the villa, and in approximately 55 steps you are on the boat! We provide a cart to pull your diving gear to the boat. The folks at Panama City Diving are all amazing people, excellent diving instructors, and great friends. Pat and his crew run a fantastic and friendly shop. Most are experts/professionals at spear fishing, and can teach you as well. There is even a very nice fish fillet/cleaning table on the dock beside the boat. They are also family friendly and always do all they can to take care of their customers, and make sure they have a great family experience.
This property is "almost like" a live aboard dive ship. You can: wake up in the morning; load the cart with your dive gear; walk to the Steel Slinger for a day of diving; grab dinner at Bricks & Barley next door; get a night’s rest; and do it all again the next day, without ever getting into your car!
Just across the lagoon, there is excellent shore diving and beaches at the jetties at St. Andrews State park. You can actually see the park from the villa. We provide a family pass for free access to the park, which stays in the villa. St. Andrews has many things to offer in addition to shore diving. There is a full surf, gulf facing beach for regular beach activities and the "kiddie pool' beach, which is sheltered from the surf waves, and is mostly shallow, so it is perfect for children. The kiddie pool area is also great for shell hunting, because it has many unbroken shells that wash up on the beach. St. Andrews also has another shuttle to shell island; pavilions for picnics; nature trails; fishing; a general store; deer throughout the park, and even an alligator pond. As the crow files, St. Andrews is a mile or less from the villa, but, unless you swim across the lagoon (don't recommend that) you just have to drive around the lagoon, but it is extremely close.
Thanks again for considering our villa! Enjoy your vacation!
