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.

Ron and Yolie Strickland purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Ron and Yolie Strickland chose Sunnyside

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.

More like home than a condo rental. Feels like home every time we return.

Quaint and comfortable gem. We’re definitely coming back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed three weeks and thoroughly enjoyed every day and night. Yolie and Ron are gracious, attentive hosts who truly make you feel at home and take pride in ownership of this gem. The description “Charming, Clean, and Airy, 'Old Florida' Beach Cottage” is so accurate. We opened the windows and doors to take in the gulf breezes and appreciate the private yardspace. The neighborhood is quiet and wonderful for walking and browsing authentic and new residential architecture. The sugary white sand beach with lots of open space is an easy stroll away. There are plenty of bicycling/golfing/hiking opportunities within 10 miles. We are definitely coming back for more fun in the sun at Banana Cabana!

Breezy stay at quaint cottage steps from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Banana Cabana. Our hosts were there to greet us and get us oriented. We got groceries a mile down the road and cooked both nights of our stay. The weather was beautiful and they had all amenities for beach time and home cooking in the kitchen. We will be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Patrick, You were officially our first guests for the 2017 season at The Banana Cabana. We couldn't have asked for a nicer couple than you two. We would love to have you back. Please keep in touch. Tifton isn't that far away. Thanks again, Ron

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay away from the crowds at condos. Everything is provided, beach access is a short two block walk, a rolling cart with beach chairs and an umbrella is included. This adorable cottage is our new favorite place.

Great place, fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my girlfriend contacted Ron & Yolie on our initial inquiries until after our trip; they responded to us throughout our entire time promptly and were very sweet. Ron & Yolie are wonderful people, hosts and a great couple.

You're a one minute walk to the beach and the neighborhood is very quiet. The beach itself is also relatively quiet without the downtown PCB crowd taking up all the room. You can easily find a quiet section for two. <3 ;) It also has two sand bars running in the ocean, so there are sections that can be found that are relatively devoid of waves! (Normally, there is one sand bar some distance off shore).

The property was clean and well kept! It had everything you'd want to have for a stay:

*Plenty of toys for the beach / kids with a cart to haul it with.

*Beach towels

*Exterior beach shower

*Lots of towels, washcloths & basic cleaning products

*Extra blankets/comforter

*Gas grill to cook on

*Basic Kitchen pots &pans, dishes and spices

*Bed is comfortable and cozy for 2

*Living room has a futon sofa sleeper

*Has cable+Internet (wifi). Internet is plenty fast at around 35mb/s Down 5.5mb/s Up

*There are a few dozen DVD's (Tho a few are missing! Be honest house guests people!)

The decor fits well for the environment.

CVS & Publix are a quick 1 mile drive away if you need anything.

We loved the place; it's owners were fantastic and we hope to stay again soon!
