Located in the quiet Laguna Beach section of Panama City Beach, The Oleander Cottage is on the corner of Front Beach Rd. and Oleander Street. This is certainly one of the quietest, most family oriented neighborhoods you will find. This is the quiet West End of Panama City you have heard so much about. No getting in the car to go to the beach... it's across the street.
Worlds away from the hustle and bustle but only a few miles from everything you want to do and see. It's the perfect way to have a getaway and still enjoy all the new activities Panama City Beach now offers. The Carousel Grocey store and World FAMOUS Thomas Doughnuts are just down the street. Shop and eat where local families and guests have enjoyed for generations.
The NEW Pier Park is only a 4 miles away and we are only 3 miles from Hwy79 (which leads to our NEW International Airport). Frank Brown park is 3 miles away. There are Winn Dixie and a Public Grocery stores close in either direction. Local Restaurants from Fresh Seafood & Oysters to BBQ only minutes away. It's truly the Best of Both Worlds! ... Relaxed but Close enough to everything you and your family want to do and see.

A true home away from home!
A true home away from home!
This is such a lovely cottage, having been our second time staying We felt like we were coming home to our secret little beach cottage! The location cant get any better you can see the beautiful gulf from the kitchen window, and you are close to Carousel grocery and Thomas doughnuts two local gems! We stayed on the west side of the cottage, which is perfect for a couple wanting a romantic getaway.We frequented Buddy's seafood market and cooked amazing food in the large kitchen and grilled outside.The cottage has a calm peaceful feel and is very clean and inviting, we enjoyed the outside shower after a long day at the beach.I definitely recommend visiting St. Andrews state park they have a beautiful jetty to go snorkeling, and fishing piers.Simply put this is an amazing place to get away from the daily grind and have a truly relaxing vacation.We cant wait to come back, and bring friends and family to enjoy this lovely getaway with us!

Perfect Peaceful Getaway
Perfect Peaceful Getaway
We loved our stay at Oleander cottage and definitely plan to return. It was relaxing and peaceful at our end of the beach, yet we were just minutes away from Pier Park and all the activity. The location is ideal and we were just a short walk to the beach every morning.

This cottage is by far the most peaceful place we've stayed with our kids thus far. We loved the location - just far enough outside of PC that the beach wasn't crowded and it's close to some of our favorite restaurants and shops! It has all you'll need for a relaxing family getaway - just bring your suit and enjoy the sun! Thank you so much David and Lisa! We will be back next year for sure!

I had an awesome and heavenly mini vacation at the Oleander. The Owners were really very helpful in making sure that my stay was everything I expected!! The cottage is very clean and has everything you'll need. I love Laguna beach and the location of the Oleander is the BEST. Thanks Lisa and David for helping me find my new slice of heaven at the Oleander!!!

Once again, Great Stay
Once again, Great Stay
This was our second year in a row to stay at this house. It is a really great house close to the ocean. My 3 boys always feel like they are at home when we stay. They could not wait to get to the house and play on the beach. The nearest high rise hotel is 2 miles down the beach. We always get to people watch that would walk down our way but no wild parties to keep you up at night. Awesome !!

The Oleander Cottage is well appointed and cared for by the owners. They make an effort to help you enjoy your stay. It is very clean, neatly furnished including little items needed in the kitchen,and well maintained. All of this helped our family enjoy our time on the beach and time visiting nearby attractions.

Wonderful and Restfull Time
Wonderful and Restfull Time
Didn't realize how quiet and peaceful we had it until we got home to the Winter hazards that go with the cold. My wife and I just really enjoyed the walks, and the games of "Scrabble" at our own pace. We found a great little Church and had some fellowship with others. Was suprised how much room we had, and would recommend to others. The rate was very acceptable and just a joy. Kitchen was set up nicely, and very clean....Later

Owner response: We enjoyed having you guys! Thanks for taking such good care of everything and we look forward to having you back.
Our stay at the cottage was overall a great experience. We had the smaller portion of the cottage and found it very charming. The keyless entry is a great feature and the onsite washer/dryer was great. My only critique was that when we arrive the cottage didn't smell like it had been aired out. It had a slightly musty smell. The bathroom is on the tiny size. Wished the owners would have mentioned it since we were traveling with small kids and a bathtub would have been more suitable for us. All that said, the owners were very nice and I do look forward to returning and using the larger portion of the cottage.

Owner response: Thanksgiving at the Beach was Wonderful this year. Thanks for your comments, we are glad you guys had a great time and that you're looking forward to coming back! I agree, it's great not to have to keep up with your keys while you are out and about. Also, the washroom is all new and does make lighter packing possible. That's especially nice for larger families and for those flying in. We did have over a month in between our last guests and your stay. Although the cleaners had just left when you arrived, the heat/air (new) hadn't been run since late summer. Thanks to your comment we now make sure it's ran after any down time before anyone arrives. We are almost always booked so it's never came up before. Thanks again for the heads up. We look forward to seeing you guys again soon!
Had a great vacation. Cottage location was great. Outdoor shower got a lot of use. Keyless front door was very handy. Would stay here again. Thanks

Owner response: Thanks! We've tried to think of everything. Not having to keep up with keys at the beach is a great feature. We can set the digital door code to something even your kids can remember if you like. There's no way to get locked out. I'm glad you guys had a great time, please tell your friends about us. David
Best vacation value

I coudn't ask for more! This was the best vacation value ever. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well decorated. It is very close to the beach with a lot of amenities. The cottage was roomy and they made sure we had everything we needed. We have stayed at many places, but this cottage is now our favorite. We will definitely come back. My family loved this place.

About the owner: Hello, We are David and Lisa Sample. Lisa and I are local Realtors here in Panama City Beach. We have a Real Estate sales office located just down the street at Celadon Beach Resort. We liked the area so much we move here in 2005 and became full time residents.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
The cottage reminds me of my Grandmothers house. Wooden slat ceilings and solid wood doors give it a cottage charm that's hard to describe. We love the fact that it's so quiet there but so close to all the restaurants and shopping. We spent the Fall and Winter of last year completely renovating the property and just fell in love with it. Read our Reviews...
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Where else can you have the comfort of a cottage only 30 feet from the beach and 52 inch Samsung Flat Screens when your cooling off and relaxing? The rear courtyard and back yard are huge and make it a perfect place to Grill Out and Relax. No stairs, elevators or crowds make this the perfect spot for a great vacation. It doesn't matter if it's just the two of you or a families up to 12 people... we have a deal for you.
