Summertowne cottage description
Our cottage is located right next to Pier Park and directly across the street from 200 feet of vacant beachfront and has an incomparable unobstructed view of the beach. When you drink your coffee on the 3rd floor porch in the morning you won't want to leave. But you will because there is so much more to do. You can cruise Pier Park itself or ride the bike trails at Aaron Bessant park which is less than 1/2 mile from the Cottage. That Park also has an outdoor amphitheatre which holds many music events during the year including Seabreeze Jazz Festival and the Summer Concert Series. A little further to the North is Frank Brown Park which hosts the Indian Summer Seafood and Music Fest in the fall, the horse show in the spring, Thunder Beach in the spring and fall and many other events. They also have a public pool with some slides and small water attractions for the kids.
Pier Park is a destination all on its own. You will never have to eat at the same restaurant while you are here. Besides Margaritaville and Dick's Last Resort, there is Reggae J's, Kilwin's Chocolate & Ice Cream, Five Guys Burgers, Red Robin, Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, Buffalo Wild Wings, two Starbucks and many other nice but casual dress restaurants. The shopping is incredible with stores for all kinds of tastes. Stores include Ron Jon Surf Shop, Del Sol, Target, Dillard's, Penneys, Justice for Girls, Hollister, Coldwater Creek, and about 100 other local and national stores. If you get tired, take in a movie at the The Grand Theatre with 16 screens and rest your feet watching a movie. There is a kiddie amusement park near the theatres and you can get a massage at Massage Envy or your nails done at Nails So Happy (my wife recommends it). Guys? You say you don't get your nails done. Well the cottage is located less than a quarter mile from a world class 1500 foot fishing pier where the view is incredible and the fishing even better. Bring your gear or rent or buy some locally. And on the beach by the pier there are water sports available.
Our cottage is located about 10 minutes from the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. Southwest Airlines and Delta operate out of the airport and there are direct flights to Atlanta, Houston, Nashville, Memphis, Orlando and Baltimore. If you choose to fly in, we will be glad to make arrangements for your transportation to and from the cottage. You can fly in here and have a great vacation without even renting a car, but car rentals will be available at the airport.
If you decide to rent a DVD (or watch one of ours) and stay in at night, the Living Area is equipped with a great surround sound system. After the movie go for a walk on the Pier and see the lights from shore. The Pier is open 24/7 and is less than 5 minutes from your door.
No waiting for a condo elevator, no looking for a parking place at your condo or Pier Park and no listening to what your condo neighbors are doing. Make yourself at home away from home and bring your doggie to enjoy it with you. If you are looking for a great relaxing Florida vacation, look no further.

First Time Stay...Hope to Return
First Time Stay...Hope to Return
We wanted to take a family vacation to PCB the week after Labor Day and were thrilled to find Paradise at Summer Towne. We had 6 adults and one small pup with us and everyone felt comfortable and at home at the cottage. The stairs are a bit of a killer at first, but what better way to work off all the yummy seafood we were eating at Pier Park which was just a block away! We loved being able to walk right across the street to the beach every day and the proximity to Dog Beach was perfect! The home is just as described, warm and inviting and full of the comforts of home. The view from the top deck were amazing and it was everyone's gathering spot for coffee in the morning. We saw dolphins every day! The welcome gift from the owners was a sweet surprise and really gave a personal touch to our stay. Thank you so much for offering up your wonderful cottage to guests. We can't wait to come back!

The 3rd time's STILL a CHARM
The 3rd time's STILL a CHARM
This was our third visit to this beautiful cottage. It is beginning to feel like our home away from home. As usual we found it spotless and very cheerful. The design is beautiful with it's pale yellow walls and soft accent details. Not that you would really want to, but if you were so motivated, you could host a wonderful dinner party for several couples. The kitchen is well equiped and the tableware is nice with pretty serving pieces. My favorite spot is the top deck. It is great to people and dolphin watch. The breeze blows most of the time so it stays comfortable most of the day. The beds are great and the airconditioner works perfectly. No problems staying cool. Our dog Wrigley is comfortable there and also loves the deck. It goes without saying that the location is unrivaled. We walk to all of our favorite spots. Thank you so much for being pet friendly. We hope to be back next month.

Owner response: Bud, Kathy & Wrigley, Can't even express how happy we are that you enjoyed your stay again at the cottage. We also love the front porch....To be so close to everything, it still is so peaceful as it overlooks the ocean. We sure love our pets and we took them on many vacations with us and were also happy that someone provided us with a place for them as well. We consider ourselves blessed to be able to provide a place for our guests (pets too) to come and relax and enjoy what Panama City Beach has to offer. Thank you for all your compliments on the cottage. Hope you get to come back very soon! Dean & Michelle
We had a great time here. The house is super nice and is very well supplied with items such as shampoo, toilet paper, and even laundry supplies if needed. The property is well maintained. All the other familes vacationing here was really nice . The pool temp was very nice. The 3rd story porch is really great to sit on , has a unobstructed view of the ocean. The pictures on the web site are just as the house is. We really enjoyed this area. Pier park is a shoppers paradise. Great to go to when you're tired of the sun and sand.

My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. This was a beautiful place and the location is very convenient. Setting on the 3rd level porch and looking out over the ocean was one of my favorite things to do it was so relaxing. The owners have gone to great lengths to make this place comfortable. We have vacationed several times in Panama City and this has been one of our best vacations. This house was large enough and well furnished to accommodate my whole family. It was very clean when we arrived and I hope we left it to the satisfaction of the owners. I could not have asked for any better communication and cooperation from the owners. This truly is a beautiful place in a great location and I would highly recommend it. Our next vacation to Panama City we will definitely see if this house is available.

My family and I just returned home from PCB and had absolutely the best time. The cottage was clean, cozy and completely beyond our expectations. We felt right at home and did not want to leave.The colors and decor were cheerful and fun. Michelle was great to work with and helpful answering all our questions.It was our first time in PCB and found its location perfect. . Easy to get many attractions and restaurants. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the third floor balcony in the morning, then relax with a glass of wine in the evening while watching a breathtaking sunset.

My family and I chose this charming beach house for a two week stay in Panama City Beach, and we are very glad we did! The house was absolutely perfect for us -- immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, and ideally located near Pier Park. We enjoyed the awesome view from the third floor and appreciated how close the beach was (about a 2 minute walk -- just across the street)! We highly recommend this home and will definitely stay there again. Thank you, Dean and Michelle!

Owner response: We are so glad you had a great experience at Panama City Beach and especially happy that you liked the house. We are really fortunate to have such a great location. It makes your vacation so much better when you are right in the middle of things. Hope you come back again!!
All I can say is thank you for a wonderful week. The 10 yr old girls loved pier park, the boys loved the beach and going to pier park by themselves. Your house included everything we needed, and the 3rd floor deck is awesome. Everyone wanted to stay another week, maybe we can arrange that somehow! I would never look for a more perfect location. And the bonus, fireworks on the 4th off the pier, watching from our own balcony! You guys have it all...I would recommend this unit to anyone!

Owner response: You can not beat the view of the fireworks and convenience of sitting on your own front deck while it is all going on. So glad your family all had a great time. We look forward to having you as guest again!

About the owner: My wife and I live in Panama City Beach and love helping other people have great vacations. We really love our beach cottage and we want you to enjoy yourself while you are here. We take pride in what we offer and we are glad to help you in anyway we can.....Need to be picked up from the airport?....need some essentials put in the fridge & pantry before you arrive?....have flowers waiting at the cottage for your wife? Just name it..If we can do it, we will.
Why the Owner Chose Summertowne:
This area is the perfect vacation destination. Beaches, fishing, shopping, biking, hiking and entertainment all within a short walk. And now, with the new airport, we are closer than any other area of Panama City Beach to great airline destinations at great prices with Southwest Airlines.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The early mornings are quiet and great for sitting on the porch drinking your coffee while watching the sun come up over the water. You might catch site of dolphins jumping out of the water. Then, talk a lovely walk (1/4 mile) to Aaron Bessant Park. If you have dogs, this is a great place to take them for a run. Then maybe take a leisurely stroll through Pier Park and have some breakfast at Panera Bread or Starbucks. Later in the day if you feel like resting, you can sit on the porch and visually take in all the beach activities such as parasailing, wind surfing, boating kite flying and many other activities or take a nap in the hammock on the second floor porch.
