Car: Recommended

Not only is this cottage right beside Mike's Cafe and Oyster Bar but the cottage is also close to another Thomas Family tradition, Thomas' Doughnuts! Also check out the Carousel Gourmet Grocery Store that features local groceries as well as an excellent wine selection. Don't miss their free wine tastings on Fridays! Also close to Winn Dixie Grocery ans CVS Pharmacy. You can even travel via the local trolley up and down Front Beach Road. A Summer Concert Series as well as other events are always going on at Pier Park which is a mega shopping, theatre and dining complex that is beside an awesome public pier. Pier Park has something for everyone. Very close also to the Gulfarium, Ripley's Believe It or Not and Wonder Works. As motorcycle enthusiasts know, PCB is home to Thunder Beach Bike Rally!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are business owners who love to vacation and make memories with our family.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
My husband and I have family who live in the Gulf Coast Panhandle. We have been vacationing here our whole lives and had a condo and business in Destin in the 90's. Most of our fondest memories are of family times on the beach. Our favorite activities other than chilling on the beach are going to the amusement parks, fishing, boating and of course eating great seafood!! In 2010 when we saw this cottage for sale we saw both short term and long term potential. Our goal when renovating the home was to keep the vintage character of this 1940's cottage. We are Always improving the cottage to make it comfortable for our guest. In 2012 we added the observation deck which has been a favorite with guests. Since purchasing this home we have fallen in love with PCB and its friendly, unpretentious locals and vacation home owners like ourselves! Our love of the panhandle is so torn between Destin and Panama City Beach, that we decided to have the best of both worlds and acquired a condo in the heart of the Miramar Beach area of Destin in 2011. Then in 2012 we added two off the beach houses in Santa Rosa Beach, Fl. These VRBO rentals have far exceeded our expectations. See all at Barefootbeachbungalows.com.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is nothing like long walks on the beach any time of day or any season. From our cottage you can have sand in your toes in minutes. I fell so blessed to go to the end of my street and see ocean. It is truly inspiring. We love the fall and winter in PCB as much as the spring and summer. On the west end of PCB you are just minutes to so many other great water and dinining areas like St. Andrews Bay, Rosemary Beach, Grayton Beach, Destin and Seaside.. However we tend to spend most of our time and dollars eating at our favorite local spots like Dusty's, Mike's Diner and Oyster Bar, The Sand Bar next to Buddy's Seafood or the Back Porch at Pier Park so that we have more time to spend with family and each other.
