Beach Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)
If you've ever dreamed of escaping to your very own private beach cottage, this is your dream come true! Ours is probably the most adorable cottage in Sunnyside. We have artfully decorated family areas, cozy bedrooms, and a bright, spacious sunroom.
You'll fall in love with the gulf views from our outside balcony and deck. There's also a back yard deck with a grill for your convenience. Our yards are beautifully landscaped and are covered with lush green grass.
No detail has been overlooked in refurbishing and modernizing this one-of-a-kind beach home. Period details like rich heart pine ceilings and original cottage doors have been lovingly refinished to maintain the character of this vintage Florida cottage. One look and we know you'll love it as much as we do!

About Cara English Catrett
Cara English Catrett just loves renting this delightful cottage to beach visitors. Purchased in 1990 by Dr. Michael Manning and Dr. Gayle Merritt Manning of Albany, Georgia, 'The Blessing' cottage was lovingly restored and updated so that they would have an inviting and relaxing beach home. During the past few years the owners have added numerous unique design features and conveniences. They decided to share 'The Blessing' beach cottage to vacationing guests in 2009 after building a new home in Panama City Beach. We hope you'll be our next guests!
Why Cara English Catrett chose Laguna Beach
Sunnyside is the quiet, family friendly end of Panama City Beach without the high-rise condominiums. The area is mostly small cottages in the vintage Florida style. The best part is that we are right across the street from the beach!
What makes this Cottage unique
Our guests love being able to park just outside the door. There's no long line of guests trying to check in or elevators to wait on. We have two patios - 1 with adirondack chairs and a bistro set out front; the other with a gas grill out back. Our upper deck has gorgeous views of the gulf. We also have luxurious grass to walk on in the yard.

Charming little cottage with a good view
I concur with Richard J' review below.
The owner was extremely responsive (usually within a couple of hours).
We wouldn't mind staying there again.
Thanks so much for the great review. We’d love to have you back anytime!
We loved it!!!
Thank you for sharing your cottage with us!!!! We had a wonderful time last week.
Overall, we'd give it four out of five stars. Great location, the west end of Panama City Beach is much quieter, a lot less traffic. Access to the beach is great, the deck out front and up above were great when it was a little windy or cool at the beach. The place is nicely appointed, the kitchen a little spare on cooking utensils, but adequate. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the bathrooms. The bathroom with the shower is really a tight fit to get into. The master bedroom bathroom does not have a door on it and no shower in the bathtub. If it did, it would make a big difference. Loved our stay there. The Sunnyside Grill next door has a great breakfast for not much money, if you can ignore the redneck bumper stickers pasted all over the vent above the grill!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write the nice review and for giving us feedback about your stay. You perfectly described some of the things that attracted us to the quiet, pristine beaches on the west end of PCB. Although the master bathroom does actually have a hand-held shower, it isn’t mounted on the wall like modern showers. Considering your input though, we will investigate some methods for maybe altering it to a wall-mounted configuration. And the master suite is separated from the hallway by a locking door. So we feel that installing an additional door between the master bedroom and the master bath would take away from the aesthetic appeal of the mirrored, elevated bathroom entryway. We do appreciate knowing our guests’ preferences so that we can accommodate them as much as possible. Thank you also for the additional comments about the Sunnyside Grill restaurant, which is just two doors down from our cottage. It’s a great place to enjoy breakfast and lunch while staying at the beach — and so convenient! Thanks again for staying with us. We hope you can return again soon!
Kottage for Christmas
Thank you for sharing your home so we could celebrate Christmas near our family who live in PCB. The location was perfect and my family was able to stay together in your home and still join our extended family during the holiday. We would definitely stay there again.
I'm so glad you chose our cottage for your Christmas time at the beach. We enjoyed hosting you and look forward to having you back again soon! Thanks so much for staying with us.
Great Beach Vacation Cottage
We stayed at this wonderful beach cottage for 2 weeks and found it to be comfortable and stocked with everything we could possible need from kitchen essentials to electronics. The décor was perfect for a seaside cottage and we enjoyed the view from the sun deck and being only a very short walking distance to the beach. We would like to thank Mr. Manning and his wife for being so accommodating and responsive to our needs - it was a real pleasure meeting them and it made our stay even more pleasant. Also, thanks to Cara for being so easy to work with on booking the property. We would love to come for another stay in the future!
I'm so happy to hear that your beach vacation was everything you had hoped. You have been a pleasure to work with also, and we can't wait to have you back as our guests!
Great little family getaway.
Home is very cute! Had everything you could possibly need to relax or cook meals. Very clean and well appointed. Owners are very helpful and close by, should you need anything. We could see the ocean from the living room and porch. Only 4 miles from Rosemary Beach, and minutes from Seaside.
Across Road from Gulf; 10 Minutes Pier Park; 5 Minutes Lake Powell
Other Activities: Shopping, boating, wildlife viewing, mini golf, kayaking, shelling, parasailing, biking
