About Wayne Bentley & Audrey Iracane
When we first visited Panama City Beach, we fell in love with the beauty that is the Emerald Coast, so much so that we purchased our very own piece of heaven on the Gulf. We know you’ll fall in love with it too. We take great pride in our Coral Cottage by the Gulf in offering an immaculate, well-stocked and comfortable home for you to enjoy, relax, and hopefully return to again and again!
Wayne Bentley & Audrey Iracane purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Wayne Bentley & Audrey Iracane chose Laguna Beach
This area of Panama City Beach is so quaint, laid back, and beautiful, we knew within one week of being here that this is where we wanted to spend a lot more time. It's not just the sugar white sandy beaches or the clear emerald green water, it's the people, the food, and the feeling of getting away from it all. It's unlike anywhere else (in Florida, anyway) and it really is like paradise.
What makes this Cottage unique
This home is in a great neighborhood, full of single family private homes, each on a nice-sized lot on a quiet street. There aren't many neighborhoods better! And when we found this little gem, we knew it was the one! It makes for a comfortable, cozy home away from home. Just lovely…

Neat, clean, comfortable, and private
Great location- close to the beach and in a quiet neighborhood. Lots of space inside and out. Beach accessories (chairs, umbrellas, wagon, snorkeling equipment, sand toys, etc) made it easy for us to just "go to the beach" without having to shop. I highly recommend Coral Cottage!
Thank you for your kind words, we looking forward to your staying with us again soon.
Very nice, quiet and relaxing
We spent a very relaxing three weeks in the Coral Cottage. We walked down to the beach several times (about .4 of a mile per GPS). The water was a beautiful, deep blue & the thick, white sand was pretty much what you'd expect....very thick, white and sandy. Not really conducive to taking long walks on the beach, though, unless you want a workout. Wayne & Audrey were the perfect hosts, providing everything advertised under the amenities. We used their fire pit & the Weber charcoal barbecue a couple of times in the back yard, did a little golfing & checked out a few of the numerous restaurants in the area. I would highly recommend staying at this cottage & hope to return.
Looking forward to having you again.
Great winter get away
We found the cottage just as it was advertised. We really enjoyed the back yard including having a couple of evening campfires.It was nice to view some of the movies that were in the cottage. Good bed to sleep on,good heat when it was cool and good air conditioning when it was warm. The owners were very helpful when anything was needed. We hope to return in 2019. Thanks Marg & Hank.
Glad you enjoyed your stay with us, we look forward to having you back!
This was our second stay at Coral Cottage and we were looking forward to a month of sunshine. Unfortunately, we had to leave very early because of a family emergency. We appreciate the improvements the owners have made and can tell they continue to give this home loving care.
Sorry that your trip was cut short, hope all is well.
Overall it was a quaint cottage that was very comfortable.
We loved our visit! Though we didn’t stay at a time when we would be spending time on the beach, for our purposes, the location was very convenient. It’s obvious a number of upgrades have been made and they all make for a pleasant experience. If I were to make a request for the owner, it would be to replace the carpet with tile. My personal preference is to not have carpet bc I just feel you can keep things clean more easily. And a bigger bed. I have grown accustomed to my king and I will admit I missed it. I’m sure updates can only be done ever so often but that would be my choice :) Overall we enjoyed our visit and we’re thrilled to have the iooortunity to experience the Coral Cottage!
Thank you for your input. Your suggestions are appreciated, although we understand your personal preferences, we prefer carpet in the bedrooms. We have tile throughout the remainder of the house, just choose carpet for the bedrooms for its warmth and comfort when climbing out of bed in the mornings. As for the King bed in the master bedroom, it's a consideration. Thank you again for staying with us and we look forward to having you back again soon.
It is obvious the owners have made great effort to create a.very comfortable and inviting interior..
Overall, the house was adequately clean, spacious, and fully equipped. The exterior appearance and the condition of the front screened porch were the weakest qualities. The front porch floor and furniture needed attention.
As with all homes there are projects and upgrades to be done, while at the house this week, we added a feature wall to the breakfast bar and replaced the master bathroom door with a sliding barndoor.
The front screened-in porch is our next project to conquer. Thank you for your comments, we hope you'll stay with us again soon.
Frank Brown Park is located 4.95 miles (approx. 7 min drive). We've have had several people inquire about this. Hope this is helpful
