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.

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!!!!

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

A quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

A quiet and peaceful retreat in a residential neighborhood just minutes from the beach. Quality linens with beachy home decor made our stay relaxed and comfortable. Just perfect for our Florida get away. Ron and Yolie are very welcoming and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you Carrie. It was really nice meet you and Mark. We are happy that you had a great stay and a vacation. Thank you also for noticing that we provide quality linens. That doesn't always get mentioned in our reviews . We feel that it is extremely important. We try to use Tommy Hilfinger, and top line Sheets, which is unheard of in the rental business. It is so nice that you noticed. We would love to have you back. Next time please try to do one of Yolies bookcamps. See you soon.

This cottage is beautifully done, clean, welcoming and so comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend getaway here. So easy to walk down to the beach and spend the day without getting out into traffic! Ron was so welcoming and you can he tell takes pride in their rental. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend, we will definitely stay again when returning to Panama City!
