House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps - Golf Cart Available
Come swim in the emerald waters of the Gulf, stroll on the immaculate sugar white sands, or relax on our second story deck and enjoy the ocean view.
Completely renovated this year our 1600 square foot home has plenty of comfortably decorated living space plus the large second story, wrap around deck. The deck is large enough to lounge or have a relaxing meal all while enjoying an ocean view or catching an afternoon breeze. Three ample sized bedrooms with 2 queen beds and two full sized bunk beds plus two full baths, handle six quite comfortably.
The fully equipped brand new kitchen has everything a gourmet chef might need. Other features include full size washer and dryer in the separate laundry room, dishwasher, two flat screen TVs, cable, Wi-Fi, all linens, ceiling fans in most rooms, a charcoal grill, beach towels & beach chairs plus a wagon to take all your gear to the beach. We can even provide a high chair for our littlest guests.
Our home is on the desirable west end of Panama City Beach in an area called Laguna Beach. Located just 3.3 miles west of the “Y” intersection of US Highway 98 and Florida 79, we are minutes from Pier Park, Frank Brown Recreational Center, beach attractions, shopping, dining, and churches of all denominations. We are within easy walking distance to The Carousel, a locally famous supermarket with everything, and of course the best donuts on the beach at Thomas Donuts. Being just the sixth house from the beach our home is a quick walk to the glistening Gulf waters. This is quicker access than most beachfront high rise condos where you wait and wait to lug your supplies onto an elevator. No more searching for an open spot on the beach. Our section of the beachfront is adjacent to Laguna’s dedicated, mile long stretch of private undeveloped, pristine sands which are specifically for the enjoyment of our neighborhood.
A golf cart is available to rent for those who want a more beach appropriate means of transportation. Trips to Thomas Donuts, the Carousel Supermarket, or the beach to enjoy a sunset, become so much more enjoyable.
We are perfect for a family or group of friends who enjoy and appreciate the luxuries of a well-appointed home while relaxing at the beach.

About the Owner
About Ronda Swords
My husband purchased this property in 1973, the year we were married. In 1980 we built the house. Last year the property underwent an extensive remodel.
We have watched our three children grow up on the beaches of Panama City. Today we watch our 5 grandchildren play on the white sandy beaches.

Why Ronda Swords chose Laguna Beach
The Laguna Beach neighborhood offers a quite family environment.
What makes this house unique
The property offers excellent access to the beaches. Less expensive than a house on the beach, but closer to the beach than a high rise condominium. You can walk to the beach in less time than you spend waiting on an elevator in most condominiums. Laguna Beach offers a one mile stretch of open beach. You will not have to fight for a place to lay your towel.
A golf cart is available to rent for those who want a more beach appropriate means of transportation. Trips to the beach for a day of fun & sun, Thomas Donuts, the Carousel Supermarket, or back to the beach to enjoy a sunset, become so much more enjoyable.

Loved this place
This place is fantastic. I really liked being so close to the beach, Thomas Donut shop, and the Carousel grocery store. Carousel was great for cheese, wine, and new sunglasses after I accidentally broke mine. The golf cart is awesome and made me feel like I was definitely on vacation. The house has great sunlight but stays cool, is clean, has fast internet, and I loved the swivel on the tv in the living room!
Wow! Quiet, spotless, and amenities galore!
My husband and were looking for somewhere to go relatively close to atlanta to celebrate our 1 yr anniversary and we really lucked out with this rental. It's on the west end of Panama City Beach which although close, feels like an entirely different world than PCB. Both the house and the beach are quiet and peaceful. There are no large hotels or development on the beach and being more sparsely populated, it felt like our own private island or something. The beach and house are close enough that we were able to just walk the 2 minutes back to the house whenever we wanted a snack from the kitchen or a sun break. (Or we took the golf cart in 10 seconds.)
The house is frankly pretty amazing. There are beach chairs, a grill for the patio, a sun umbrella, the fluffiest towels ever, and even a beautiful mixer in the kitchen. Definitely nicer things than we have in our own home. Wished we had taken more advantage of the kitchen as it was quite inviting but we ate out a ton instead. :) Appreciated how clean it was as I am a bit of a clean freak. First place I've stayed in years where I actually wanted to take off my shoes and walk around barefoot. We will likely be coming back with some extended family this summer as there is plenty of space here.
A few random fun things we stumbled upon while here: fresh produce and key lime salt water taffy at the Carousel grocery store (only 3/10ths of a mile from house). And go mini-golfing in PCB! So fun and you will get just the right amount of PCB crowds and energy that it will be invigorating but then you can retreat to the Swords beach house before it becomes draining.
This house was amazing! We had such a great time! The house was perfect for us and super clean! Close to the beach, shopping, etc. There is a nice grocery store just a short golf cart ride away. The owners were so nice! We will definitely make a trip back soon!! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!!
This place is very nice. We stayed here back in 2012 & the house has been completely updated since our last stay. Kitchen is VERY nice! We loved the location, much quieter beach area but still close to all the attractions! You can see the ocean from the deck & it's just a short walk to it or lthey now have a golf cart available, which makes packing all your beach gear simple. If we go back to PCB, we will be staying here again!
We LOVED IT!!!!!!!
I would just like to take a moment and thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay at your place at 127 Malaga in Panama City Beach. What an incredible time we had! We would also like to tell you that you have such an amazing home, it was so perfect for everything we needed. We would also like you to know that the cleaning person you have hired goes above and beyond probably even your expectations. As an "OCD cleaner" as my husband would refer to me, I would like you to know that your home was the cleanest place we have ever stayed in!
Our vacation was exceptional from arrival to departure. The home is in the most perfect location for family activities and perfect proximity to the grocery and beach, and what a wonderful treat it was to have access to your golf cart!
Again, I just wanted to say thank you and we hope to vacation there for years to come!
Wonderful Beach Retreat
Our group just needed to get away and relax. High rise condos just don't work for our family. I found this rental quite by accident but it was everything I could have wanted it to be and more. I love to cook and have family meals together and the kitchen is amazing with everything you could possibly ask for or need. We loved sitting out on the deck and just watching everything around us. We loved the golf cart to as we used it to make multiple trips to Thomas' donuts, the Carousel and the beach. Our grandchildren, 5 and 8, were with us and we hope we made some very special memories for them. The Swords Beach House was all we could have asked for and a lot more!! I would love to go back tomorrow!!!!
