About Genese Hatcher
We are currently retired and live on the emerald waters of Panama City Beach. We grew up in South East Georgia and Panama City Beach was our favorite beach retreat. We are Designers and we enjoy developing properties along the gulf. We look forward to sharing our homes with you. We have a total of 7 Homes on the water that are all Wedding / Reception Friendly. We love to entertain families, wedding and church retreats.
Genese Hatcher purchased this House in 2012
Why Genese Hatcher chose Bahama Beach
We chose Panama City Beach because this was our favorite vacation retreat where we enjoyed many summers while growing up in the South. It has everything you could imagine for the entire family-best fresh seafood, snorkeling, grilling, small car & scooter rentals out front, and one mile from Pier Park!! Panama City Beach is very family friendly. We live local and would be happy to answer any questions in order to make this the best vacation ever!! Miss Ashlee's Oleander Retreat is a Favorite Wedding Venue. Many people rent Side A and B as a Large Wedding Venue. There is a Large 6 ft. Gate that can be opened, in order for the Deck to be shared. Side A has it's own Private Beach Access. Large Hot / Cold Outdoor Showers along w/ Charcoal Grills are located on the side.
What makes this House unique
When renting Side A and B, you can entertain Large Groups for Weddings, Family Vacations and Church Retreats. Each side is priced individually. We are within walking distance to New York Pizza, California Cycles, The Sandwich Bar, Hooters Wings and The Shrimp Basket.

Great Weekend Stay
Last minute booking but was perfect for what we needed. Location was great and communication with owner was also very prompt. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in PCB.
Online Description Not Accurate for My Needs and Not Well Equipped
This Owner was somewhat difficult to work with. She advertised her property as having an elevator so I booked it as I have a handicapped son in a wheelchair. Once I began asking questions about the elevator she told me there was not one. Due to our family dynamics and elderly members coming as well my son and we needed to be on the 2nd floor. At first she said she would do what it took to help. She told me of her other properties close by. When I asked to book one at a discounted rate as now I have to pay for 2 homes to go to the beach for Thanksgiving with my family she said never. She still had people calling and she would not work with me. She screamed at me and said I could go stay somewhere else until I finally had to hang up. This is 4 days before arrival so I was stuck. I found another home down the street not owned by her and had to pay 1000 to stay there all due to her false advertisement and then rudeness to follow. The house was not equiped well. It had 4 glasses and 4 spoons in a home that sleeps like 26. There was not even a baking sheet to bake or cook anything. Towels were dirty. My family found a sock from previous people on the TV stand. The fridge broke upon arrival and so they brought in another fridge and left the broken one in the living room so everyone had to go around it all week. In addition I was the check in person due to the fact I booked the place and she refused to give me the door code for my family to get in. My aunt had to take over and deal with her.
Deck is nice and views are beautiful of the beach and water.
Stephanie It is alway our policy to handle our business professionally and we do so. When you initially ask about your sons motorized wheelchair, I told you our property hallways were not wide enough for a motorized wheelchair. This home has NEVER had an elevator. Matter of fact we discussed your sons disability and the chair before you booked. I even offered you a smaller wheel chair if the home could work for him. We have homes that have elevators but not this one. Initially when we conversed by email -you said your son was going with his Father. That changed a few weeks before your stay.
There were three bedrooms on the first floor where your son or elderly family could stay. Your son needed a room that could accommodate a motorized wheelchair. I told you from the beginning that we would not be able to accommodate a motorized wheel chair. I even offered a wheel chair that we have available.
It is my opinion-you wanted an additional home for your other family members and wanted me to give you the property for free. You wanted to book side b also--I gave you the rate--weeks before you came--and you did not want to pay for the rental. You held out thinking it would be open and you could get it for free. When someone else booked side b --you became bitter. As you see from my previous ratings--I must be doing something right and this description is not typical of me. I am a kind person--this is not a true story. I will never give in to threats in order for someone to get what they want for free. I wish you peace
This vacation home was, by far, the most beautiful we have stayed in to date. We always come to PCB with a large group. The house was more than roomy enough, and the setup was perfect for the guests we had. Not to mention, its right on the beach!!!
Goodmorning Shana, Thank you so much for the awesome review. I am so happy you had a great vacation with us. Please come back to see us soon. Lots of love and happiness!!! Genese
This was our second stay at this seaside delight. Great places to visit nearby. Genese is a pleasure to work with and helpful in every way. Looking forward to our next visit.
Thank you so much for your awesome review. We look forward to having you and your family stay with us again. Genese :)
Enough room for our very large family. We love this community we go back every year.
Thank you Vicky!! We truly appreciate you staying with us. We look forward to next year.
Fun Week! Near Perfect!
Beautiful property that fit our family wonderfully. We didn't have any pot holders or dish rags, cooking & cleanup was challenging. Our sheets kept popping off of the corners of our bed in the master room. Overall it was fabulous & we plan to book it again for 2020!
Just a suggestion: a barn door in the main hall to close off the kitchen/living area-we had babies napping at times and the noise carried into the hall. We would recommend this property : )
