About the property

Cottage- TWO units with 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Clean, bright and airy ' old Florida' beach cottage duplex located on the peaceful west end of Panama City Beach. Extra large screened in Florida room with wonderful ocean breezes. One and a half blocks from the beach in a quiet desirable residential neighborhood. Original terrazzo flooring. Recently remodeled by local award winning artists Yolie and Ron Strickland. Great attention to detail was used when decorating and remodeling this cottage.

There are so many things to do and see on Panama City Beach. We strive to place you in a state of mind to fully seek them and find peace. This is the cleanest and most tastefully decorated cottage rental on the beach. It is designed to be reminiscent of old Florida long before Disney and the circus of spring break. There is always a breeze and the salt air reminds you of why you came to Panama City Beach. Sunnyside has some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida.

Imagine relaxing with cool coastal breezes and cocktails at sunset. Safely stroll peaceful beaches on moonlit nights. Listen to the waves gently lap the shore as you fall asleep. Awake restfully over coffee on the ample screened-in porch at sunrise, ready to take on another adventurous new day.

Your roomy bedroom is equipped with a queen sized Serta perfect sleeper new mattress. There is a ceiling fan , along with plenty of lighting for reading and cable television. Your room is un-cluttered, very clean, and comfortable. The bathroom is just steps away.

We truly want you to enjoy panama city beach as much as we do. This vacation cottage has it all and is ready for you to enjoy it.

Why Ron and Yolie Strickland chose Laguna Beach

I GREW UP IN PANAMA CITY AND REMEMBER COMING TO THE BEACH AS IF IT WERE GOING TO A FANTASY LAND. THERE WERE SAND DUNES TALLER THAN OUR CAR. THE WEST END OF THE BEACH ALWAYS HAD A SPECIAL FEEL TO IT. IT STILL DOES TODAY AS IT IS NIGHT AND DAY FROM THE CLUSTER OF HIGHRISES AND HOTELS. SOMEHOW IT HAS KEPT IT'S CHARM. I FELL IN LOVE WITH MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE HERE. THERE IS SOMETHING MAGICAL HERE ON THIS SMALL SLICE OF BEACH.

What makes this cottage unique

I LOVE THE SUNSETS FROM THE WEST WINDOW THE MOST. THE PROPERTY IS QUIET AND PEACEFUL. THERE IS ALWAYS A BREEZE AND THE LARGE PORCH IS CALMING. I ALWAYS FEEL LIKE I'M IN REAL FLORIDA. I KNOW THE BEACH IS JUST STEPS AWAY.

Wonderful and needed

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here in this wonderful little cottage. It is a 1000 foot walk to the beach, Ron and Yoli have a cart that will hold your chairs and all your beach stuff. they have enough chairs and beach stuff that you do not need to really bring anything unless you just want too. The cabana was extremely clean and supplied with everything you need to cook and grill. They have beach towels and enough bath towels to get you through a week stay. soap, shampoo and conditioner is supplied as well. The bed was very comfortable. They do have a TV with basic cable and it did rain on us some our week and when we go back we will take our Roku. However they did have movies and we watched them. There is a CVS, Piggly Willy, and Publix and Ducan Donuts with in one mile of this location. I am telling you Ron and Yoli will treat you great. On a side note there is construction next to this property. It did not interfere with our stay, we hardly heard them while in the residence. I give them five plus stars and would absolutely recommend this place or any other property they own. We will be back next year and the years to come

Great place to stay for our staycation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and close enough to all the attractions but far enough away to feel secluded.

Our little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Banana Cabana was perfect for our vacation! It was a short, convenient walk to the beach. There is a beach cart for guests to use to tote items to the beach. They even have beach toys, rafts, beach towels and beach chairs available. The inside also had many nice extras, like full sized body wash, shampoo, and conditioner, all cooking utensils, pots/pans, a propane grill, and plenty of towels. They even have a local guide with things to do, and a DVD collection.

There is a lovely screened in porch, that is perfect for when a short rain comes through, or winding your evening down. The place is super clean, and the decor is not only tasteful, but very unique. This place just gives you that perfect, classic,and cozy feel. There was ample room for my husband, son and I. Ron and Yolie are very polite, and make check in very easy. You just don't want to leave this place! They care about their guests, so do yourself a favor, and book with Ron and Yolie! We hope to stay with them again whenever we decide to come back to Panama City.

Perfect for a little family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a such a great time on our vacation. This place was the perfect size for our family of 3. Ron was extremely nice when we arrived. I was very happy to have beach supplies available for us. It saved us a ton of money since we won’t be using that stuff everyday. The house was perfectly decorated and stocked. I would highly recommend to anyone who ask.

Pure Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

This place was cozy, inviting and wonderful. The home owners were very kind and accommodating upon arrival, greeting us and giving us walk-through. The Old-Florida cottage was vintage but all modern conveniences were there and it was great! The location just a short walk to the beach made for a great relaxing time. A must do for a small family or couples retreat.

Owner's Response: Thank you Daniel. It was great to meet you and your family. I wish I could have offered you a little more time at the beach. It is always hard to leave. Thank you also for confirming my frustrations with WOW cable. The great mystery is why they made the DTA button, large and bright red. Thanks again for the review. I hope to see you again. Ron

Owner's Response: Thank you Gerald. I really enjoyed meeting you. I will always hold dear, the memory of you playing guitar on the large Florida room. It encapsulated the mood of vacationing in a vintage Florida cottage. Thank you also for the healthy Aguave that you left. I have become a big fan. Thanks and hope to see you again. Ron
