Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful time here with our 4 yr old son and his grandparents! Lovely place. Our son says he loved "the sun, sand, seaweed, everything on the beach, the clams and the seashells" the very best :) Thank you for a beautiful place to stay and spend time with family. Always a favorite vacation every year.

Perfect family stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Fishstix in mid-March. The location was terrific, the house was clean, well kept and had everything we needed. We had 3 adults and 2 children and it worked perfectly. As other reviewers have noted, the shed has everything you need for the beach. We walked every day down to Alys beach which was a great walk and there are some good restaurants down that way. Alternately you can easily drive toward Seaside and there are a lot of good options in that direction as well. I would recommend this property without hesitation.

Great time again

  • 5 of 5

We visited in October... accommodations were excellent... we used the kitchen each morning for breakfast, everything we needed was there.., roomy refrigerator with plenty of space for drinks, snacks for the beach. Beds were comfortable with a ceiling fan for comfort, & of course bathroom with each bedroom... we enjoyed the screened porch for lounging and visiting... beach was easy to walk to, (& weather was perfect). Used the beach umbrellas, chairs and even the sand toys... the pool was nice, just didn't use it much... would definitely return!!

Happy Camper 2

  • 5 of 5

We returned to FishStix for the 2nd year. We really enjoy this beautiful home and being so near the beach, with great restaurants and shops.

The home has plenty of room to gather in the public areas and provides privacy when we want to take a nap or have a quiet place to read.

We enjoy making breakfast together and having some of our meals on the screened porch, or a beach picnic.

The owners provide ample amenities, and the shed has all the items we need for the beach.

If you haven't tried it, you should definitely check out this lovely community!

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at FishStix was perfect. The house is cute, clean, and well-maintained, as is the entire Magnolia Cottage community. This was our first visit to the 30a area and we couldn't have had a better location. The kitchen was well-stocked with plates, cooking utensils etc. Best of all, being two blocks from the beach (and the opportunity to see dolphins from our beach chairs!) was super convenient to go back and forth for lunch, take a break from the sun, and simply not have to drive anywhere. We also enjoyed riding the bikes down to Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach (check out Charlie's Donut Truck and Fonville Press). Plus the storage shed was full of fun stuff - backpack chairs, kids beach toys, inflatables and balls, beach cart, really everything you would need for a great beach stay (except a cooler). We flew into Panama City airport so it was important to us that the rental house included beach chairs and bikes, although we learned that you can rent all these things at a reasonable price from but it just made for an easier stay for us to not have to worry about renting beach gear. We are already looking forward to next year!

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This house is quite lovely with high end furnishings and current décor and very clean. There is ample room and a plus is the screened porch off of the living and dining area, and the large, private upstairs master suite with private balcony -- TV in the living room and bedrooms and WiFi. The younger ones enjoyed having their own space and bathroom and bunking together. We had quiet reading time early in the mornings then all enjoyed cooking together to make breakfast and plenty of room to enjoy our meal together in the spacious dining room. We had lunch on the porch most days on our way between going to the ocean or near-by heated pool. We also enjoyed sitting on the porch every night after returning from dinner and shopping or seeing the near-by sights. The storage building had bikes and beach umbrellas and beach chairs - everything you could possibly need. The area was perfect in October 2015 with great weather, low humidity and calm seas. We found out that many from our home town have already discovered this wonderful beachside community! We had a great time and look forward to staying at this beautiful house again.
