About the property

Huge cool breezes on a fully screened -in porch

This is a beautiful and unique cottage. The screened-in porch gives you a great chance to sit back, have a glass of wine and enjoy all that the beach has to offer. From past guests, we have been told that songs have been written here and later recorded. Lovers have found the peace to renew their relationships and fall in love again. This cottage is a place to review who you are , who you want to become and to understand who it is, that you want to share your life and memories with.

A perfect situation!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect living space for my wife and I and only a couple small blocks from public access beach. It was really nice and we enjoyed our stay a LOT! I can't imagine not using this property next year during our vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rob. I'm happy that you enjoyed the cottage. It truly does have some charm, and a way of relaxing people for a good vacation. I thought that was a great idea to have family in both cottages. I'm sorry that I didn't get to meet you in person. As fate would have it, your parents arrived at the front unit just as I was finishing. Lets hope for better weather next year. Thanks again, for the kind review. Ron

perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! This is a great place just far enough away from the touristy spots of Panama City but still close enough for a short drive. It is nice and quiet area. Such a quick and short walk to the beach. There were several times I walked back to the cottage while my family stayed at the beach, to bring back snacks and more drinks. The cottage has loads of stuff. Beach towels, chairs, sand toys, there is an outdoor shower to rinse. They even have soap and shampoo. There are 2 grocery stores a quick 5 minute drive. There is a local place for breakfast and lunch just a block away...lots of locals eat there. The cottage is just as pictured, cute, comfy and clean! I would recommend this place over and over again. Really enjoyed our stay. Sleep, eat, beach, eat, and repeat!

The cutest beach bungalow, exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We just had the best weekend here! Ron and Yolie were super gracious hosts, the place was clean and had everything we needed. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing off after a long day on the beach. It was so nice to be away from the crowds in such a peaceful place. Even the neighbors were great! We will surely be back soon! Thanks again for everything guys!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mel. You guys were great. I wish we had more time to spend at the beach. Thank you for the wonderful bottle of Champagne and the cashews. They were gone in less than a minute of their discovery. I hope to see you guys again. I'm sure you will be wearing a Jerry Garcia shirt.

Perfect quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. There is a garden, a huge porch. The place itself is tastefully decorated, well equipped in a quiet location, away from high rise condos and the associated tourist traps. A village setting with original cottages, space and a 10 min walk to the ocean beach.

We had a great time at this nice clean cottage. It is in a quiet location and is just a short walk to the beach. It was a pleasure meeting Yolie, who is very sweet. Would definitely stay here again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean and as others have said the photos don't do it justice. We were only in town for a couple of days on business, but this was a great alternative to a hotel. Ron met us at checkin and made sure everything was explained and in order. The home was well stocked with just about anything you would possibly need. He also provides a cart and chairs you can use for the beach. House was in a quiet neighborhood with no traffic hassles getting in and out to Hwy 98.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jason. We really do try. We just love the atmosphere and energy of these historical cottages. They have so many stories, I'm sure. We hope you got the remodeling contract on the house that you were looking at. We would love to have you back. Thanks again. Ron
