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 Kiska 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.

As advertized.

  • 4 of 5

Place was clean, cozy and a short walk to the beach. We had two adults, and two 14 yr olds. The hideaway bed worked great for the kids. The front porch was really nice and provided some additional living space. It is a duplex, but we really never noticed the other tenants. The grill outside had one side burner that didn't work.

The kitchen had all the necessities to prepare meals. However I'm not sure if it was intentional, but the only thing missing was a good table to sit down and eat. If you plan on preparing meals and eating there (to save money), I would recommend bringing a folding table and a couple extra chairs. Overall a good place to stay, and the owners were responsive and very good to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you Christian for the kind review. We are not used to receiving four star reviews. We strive for nothing less than five stars. Perhaps, we need to improve or explain our property. Fist, we are very happy that you were satisfied with everything within the interior of the property, other than the seating. Banana Cabana is a small cottage with one bedroom. We typically host couples after a quiet romantic getaway. When we do have small families, we offer the queen pull out couch. As you can see from staying here, there is not room for a large formal dining area. I do believe the pictures accurately showed what we offered. I do apologize for the burner being out on the grill. If you had brought that to my attention, I could have brought you an additional grill. At any rate, thank you for the four star review. We will try to provide a better service to your needs next time. Ron

Perfect little beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

Ron and Yolie have created a darling "Old Florida" beach experience. The cottage is spotlessly clean, decorated as if it was their own home, and thoughtfully furnished with everything we needed for a perfect beach holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brenda. It was great meeting you and your family. What a great idea, to have family in both cottages. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. The Banana Cabana, has a way of relaxing, and calming the soul. Even in Hurricanes. Hopefully, we will have better weather next year. I would love to have you back. I'm willing to work with you in any way, to make that happen. Thanks Ron

My family and I loved this cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Ron and Yani were so nice and made us feel right at home. The cottage is located only minutes from the beach with convenient walking paths. The community was very quite and neighbors were very friendly. The porch is perfect for relaxing and just hanging out. My family and I are looking forward to visiting again.
