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.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  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.
