Why Mary Donaldson chose Silver Sands Beach
It just feels like vacation! It is the classic example of "COTTAGE BY THE SEA". a step back to a slower time when families enjoyed each others company. A place you can sit back and enjoy your morning coffee under the patio fans, and listen to the tinkle of the fountain in the garden. It's a place you can feel like belongs just to you---- not a copy of the condo next door,------ even if it is, for just a few days.

Not what we were expecting
I booked this house after searching for a few days for the perfect spot on the beach. This house is NOT on the beach. It's got a street and row of condos between it and the beach. The house was 87 degrees when we arrived and it took several hours to cool down. Smelled of mold and found several cockroaches during our stay. We tried to cancel as soon as we arrived, but VRBO said it was between us and the homeowner. The owner refused to refund our money so we could leave and find something else. It did have a neat appearance to the outside of the house, but was in a poor part of town.
I am sorry that you and your family did not have a good time at the beach.
You should read the material on the. Homeaway website more carefully.
Our cottage is not listed as beachfront property. It is 100 feet from the beach and 100 yards from the nearest beach access as stated on the website.
As for the neighborhood, we are in a residential area of Panama city Beach.
Within a two block radius there are million dollar homes, a couple of family run motels, a few small condominium complex’s,, and a few restaurants.. Panama City Beach is famous for its beach restaurants and active night life.
It sounds like you were expecting a remote and deserted beach. You won’t find that in Panama City Beach. You might want to look at crescent beach on the Atlantic or maybe Cape San Blas on the Gulf.
Overall great experience. Couldn’t ask for a better place. The pool is great especially for rainy days at the beach.
It was close to the beach. Peaceful and a great place to get away for a few day would do it again in a heartbeat!
Great Get-Away Cottage
LOVE this cottage. Took a weekend getaway with 4 long time girl friends...it was great. Short walk to the beach (make sure to turn left at Surf Drive for the shortest beach access) and the fountain pool is great if you don't want the beach. There's also parking for 2 cars right in front of the cottage. Will book again!
Overall very good
Very close to the beach. Private pool was great for the kids. washer and dryer would have been helpful.
The washer/dryer used to be a part of the rental. Due to space constraints, a one unit washer dryer is all that I can have and these combo units are very expensive.
After having to replace the unit twice in less than five years due to abuse by previous renters, I had to remove it from the rental program. However there is a very nice coin laundry one half block from the cottage, if you really need to do laundry on vacation.
Outstanding cottage with easy access to everything local.
I loved this location not only because of the amenities and access to the beach, it is close to the local spots, not just the tourist traps. Having in-house washing machine and dryer available again would be my only request.
overall, I loved the place, and it is definitely better than trying to stay in a high-rise. Fully recommended!
The Emerald Coast of Panama City Beach is known for it's turquoise water and fabulous white sand beaches. There are hundreds of restaurants to chose from, and plenty of shopping available. Fishing and Boating activities are conveniently located at the nearby marina.
