"Just got back from a wonderful week of vacation. The house was perfect! We had two families and our children that went. It worked out great with the 2 masters and two extra bedrooms. The most beautiful beach we have ever been two was just 2 blocks away. Also Thomas Donuts and carousel grocery. I highly recommend this house and vacation spot."

"The pictures do not do this place justice! Absolutely beautiful inside and out! George was always just a phone call away. We will be back and we will never rent anywhere else again! This is the place to stay in PCB!!"

"I booked Casita del Mar for our family vacation this year because my parents have a house in the same neighborhood in Laguna Beach. There were 8 of us total traveling (Me and my boyfriend, my 20 year old daughter and her friend, his mother, his sister and his 14 year old niece and her friend)
Overall the house was in a fantastic location just one block from the beach, the carousel store and a couple blocks away from Thomas' on Front Beach Rd. We rented a golf cart for the week but honestly we didn't need it because everything was so convenient. I love the location of Laguna Beach because it is outside the chaos of Panama City and is therefore much quieter and easier to get around.
The house has been redone and is updated and clean inside with a beachy décor. The pool was a great addition to the house and although the water was very warm (late July heat warms up a pool really quick), we got a lot of use out of it during our evenings when it was cooler outside.
The house also has an outdoor shower with hot and cold water that everyone just fell in love with.
It was too hot to use the upstairs deck but that would probably be nice in cooler weather. You can kind of see the ocean from it but the trees were getting a little overgrown so it was not a clear view.
The only drawback was the lack of privacy in the house. The Master bedroom is right off the main living area and it has louver doors so you can hear everything going on in the main living area and nosy kids can see inside if they want to. The back two bedrooms were situated in such a way that in order to get to the bedroom with the bunk beds and the futon you have to walk through the bathroom and/or the bedroom with the queen. So if you have a lot of people who don't know each other very well, it could be awkward.
Penney was very easy to work with. Check in was super easy as she just needed to text the door code and we were in. We had a plumbing issue with toilets that wouldn't flush that she dealt with very quickly and had the plumber there quickly.
Overall if you are ok with the lack of privacy, this would be a great option for a family vacation."

"Casadeplaya and host A.G. completely exceeded our high expectations after having read the reviews and studied pictures online. The setting is indeed tropical and secluded; like your very own private oasis on the beach. The guesthouse had ample room for the two of us and every amenity we could have wanted. A private pool surrounded by such a beautiful garden was a true delight! Beach access is directly across from the garden gate and the beach was beautiful and uncrowded at all times. It's also a great location for walking the beach road or the surrounding residential areas. I can't say enough about what a gracious and lovely host A.G. is. He was there if we needed him and yet gave us total privacy as well. He turned us on to a few great places where the locals dine that were truly outstanding suggestions. A.G. even hung a birthday flag over our door on my birthday which we had just mentioned in passing. I feel we have a new friend in A.G. and when we return to Laguna Beach, we will definitely be staying with him!"
