About the property

Beach Cottage Sleeps Up To 6

Only weekly rentals are available in June and July from Saturday to Saturday.

Please note, we only rent to families and have a minimum age requirement of 25. We do not rent to student groups. Though we appreciate your interest, there are no exceptions to this policy.

Our beach property consists of a main duplex cottage plus a guest house. This listing is for the rental of one side of the duplex only. Each unit has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, living area and kitchen. It will accommodate up to 6 guests. If you need additional space or will be vacationing with a larger group, check for the availability of the left side of the duplex ( property ID # 1088711) or the left side + guest house listed separately under property ID # 1074283.

Relax and unwind just a few steps away from the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our cottage is located in Laguna Beach, on the quiet west end of Panama City Beach. It is situated directly across from the beach in an old residential area that gives you an idea of what the beach was like before the big high-rise condos.

Amenities include a flat screen TV with satellite in the living area, Wi-Fi internet access, full kitchen with basic dishes and cooking utensils, shared wash room with a full-size washer and dryer, charcoal grill, and an outside shower to rinse off after that fun day at the beach.

Our cottage is conveniently located about 4 miles west of Pier Park outdoor shopping complex. Thomas' donuts and the local Carousel grocery store are an easy 2-minute drive. Wal-Mart, Winn-Dixie and Publix grocery stores are also close by. Restaurants to suit any taste are nearby.

Panama City Beach has many fun attractions such as Shipwreck Island water park, Gulf World, Wonder Works, Ripley's, snorkeling, parasailing, go-carts, putt-putt golf and lots more for your family to enjoy. There are also two state parks within a few minutes’ drive.

The Frank Brown Baseball/Softball Complex is only 4 miles away and Laguna Beach Christian Retreat is less than 1/2 mile from the property.

Why John French chose Laguna Beach

As children we vacationed here with our families and have always wanted to own a vacation home in Panama City. We were hooked on this property the first time we saw it. We loved the classic look and feel of the home and the fact that it is directly across the street from a public beach access walkway made this the perfect choice for us.

What makes this cottage unique

Did I say this property is directly across from the beach? Our cottage is located in an old residential beach area so you don't have the crowds that come with the large condos, however we are a 5 minute drive from Pier Park, the hottest new area in PC with shopping, restaurants, a movie theater, amusement rides, live entertainment, and of course the huge County pier for those who like to fish.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Hubby and I stayed here for our anniversary trip. It was just what we needed. We love Laguna Beach and this location , just across street from beach access! Plan to stay here next yr too. I was looking for a small, simple place and this was it. We don't care for a lot of bells and whistles in a room. I'm not here for the room (as long as it's clean) just to go to beach and restaurants in evening. Thanks for the great stay! Tim & Joy Beck, Ga.

Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week in July. The location Was perfect for what we needed, close enough to town to drive down and eat in the evenings and let our little one play putt putt, the arcade, etc. but still far enough away from the chaos to enjoy the family and calm beaches. Owners were very kind and friendly, very quick to answer any questions that we had. The house had easy parking, and access to the beach directly across the road. The outside shower was great for rinsing off after a day at the beach and the washer/dryer made it easy for me to keep up with the laundry/ towels. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to visit again next year.

Basic yet enough

  • 4 of 5

The location is great (literally right across the street from the entrance that is a 2 minute walk to the shore) for a place on the coast that does not have very many people but still has the beautiful sand and ocean. The sand on this coast line has more shells for people that like to comb the beach. Access to stores and other beaches was very easy. The house itself was not fancy, but had everything we needed. I would say it is for 4 people not 6. The couch with the pull out bed could not be slept on by my carefree 12 year old son. He is usually the one that takes the floor if there is not a bed, so for him to say you can't sleep on it then you really shouldn't. If the owners could change the couches, that would make the place a little more comfortable. Bathroom was also very small for a family of 5. If you are not a picky family and are just here for the outdoor and beaches, this is a great price and choice.

The cottage was perfect for us. It has everything you need for a couple - plus an extra bedroom for all the luggage :)

The walkway to the beach is right across from the cottage - again, perfect!

The beach was not crowded at our area either.

We loved every minute!
