About the Property

Relaxing Beach Cottage, Great Views Of The Ocean And Sunsets

*Now an owner managed home! We will make sure everything is perfect for you this summer, with our first rental starting May 28th! We welcome back anyone that booked through Sugar Sands Property Management Company.

Our little piece of paradise “Shore Thang”, is located on Front Beach Road directly across from the private, Sunnyside Beach! No need to take a car to the beach, as it is so close you can walk back to the house to refill your drink! The house is a three bedroom, two bath, 1150Sf home with a 400 Sf deck overlooking the beautiful emerald colors of the Gulf of Mexico. You can view amazing sunsets as well as fireworks from Pier Park, which is located only a couple of miles away.

Our home, recently renovated, including all stainless steel appliances including a full-size fridge, range, microwave, dishwasher, Built in Ice Maker and three zone wine/beverage fridge. Sherwin Williams paint colors and wood ceilings provide a warm and inviting beachy feeling. It is the perfect place to relax when winding down after a day at the beach! We have all new bedding including Simmons Beauty Rest mattresses in both the Master and Guest Bedroom. It also has all the features of home, including a coffee maker, blender, filtered water, filtered ice and a washer & dryer.

This home has three full bedrooms (no bunk beds built into a hallway like some condos), with a King in the Master, Queen in the first guest room and a bunk bed in the second guest room. It also has a pull out couch. With the open floor plan, you are never away from your guests while cooking dinner or fixing a quick lunch between beach trips. It also has a private, fully fenced and gated backyard with a gas grill that is available for you to use.

We have free, wireless highspeed internet (Comcast) available for your use.

The home does come with a couple of toys for our guests including two paddle boards and two sea kayaks . These are available for our guests at no extra charge, all that is ask is you treat them as your own and put them back when finished.

The home has two bathrooms, including a large walk in shower in the master and a full bathtub with detachable sprayer in the guest bedroom. We also have an outdoor shower to wash everything off after a day at the beach.

The private backyard is fenced in with a small amount of grass perfect for small dogs to enjoy.

Location, Location, Location! No need to pack up the car to head to the beach. Use our provided beach cart and walk across the street. You are only a short drive to some of the best attractions Panama City Beach has to offer, but far enough away from the crowds and congestion. We are only a short drive to Thomas Donuts, Pier Park, Frank Brown Park, St. Andrews Bay, Rosemary Beach, Seaside, Water Color and Grayton Beach. One trip to Publix, only two miles way, and you are set for the week. We have a full-size, 26 cf French door fridge for you load up with all your goodies so you can make less trips!

Car: Not Necessary

We are located less then five miles from Pier Park, which is a short and scenic drive down Front Beach Road. Pier Park offers several restaurants as well as a dog friendly beach and large pier. We are also a very short drive to Rosemary Beach, and our favorite restaurant, Red Bar in Grayton Beach. We have both a Publix and Win-Dixie less then two miles away. You can also make the short drive down to St. Andrews Bay, for world class snorkeling and activities. Since we are located on the quite, west end of the beaches, it is a much more laid back atmosphere. The community of Sunnyside is a 100% private beach, only open to the residents and guest of Sunnyside. You can actually enjoy your time at the beach since it is a short walk from the house. No need to drive to the beach as it is right outside our doorstep. Cross the road and a short path takes you to the expansive, undeveloped wide sandy beach. We love visiting Dusty’s Oyster Bar, Mikes Oyster Bar and Shuckums, all of which are a very short drive. For breakfast and lunch, Thomas Donuts is a little over a mile way, for some of the best donuts in Florida!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We fell in love with Panama City Beach years ago and decided we wanted something on the quiet, west end. We want this home to feel like a home away from home! We live in Atlanta and try and make it down to the beach as much as possible, so many of the days blocked off will be us enjoying this home as well as opening it up to other guests.

Why the Owner Chose Sunnyside On The Gulf, Laguna Beach, FL, USA:
You cant beat the location! This home is on a private beach, so its like you pretty much have the place to yourself. The large deck overlooking the gulf with zero obstructions. It was like beach front property with out the high price. It is also located on the much quieter west end of the beach, but still close to all the amenities. The walk to beach is literally two minutes!
