Guestbook comments from the manager

Excerpt from our guest book......

We were soooo fortunate to find this beachy cottage. We've been coming to this area for YEARS, but have never stayed in a place like this (mostly condos). It felt like being home (except, of course, for the view, gulf..., etc.). We LOVE the decor (absolutely what a "beach house" should look like) and just perfectly my STYLE!

The amount of room (floor space, seating, dining) is wonderful. Proximity to the beach is good, making carrying chairs, umbrella, ice chest, etc., easier. The location is good as well - away from condos and congestion, but still close enough for shopping and entertainment.

To sum it up we LOVE IT, and will recommend it to family and friends, and will be returning!

Oh, wait, I almost forgot to mention that the house was built the same year my husband was born, which was a novelty to him, and he keeps making reference to it as the "55"!

Thanks for the memories!! Go TIGERS and Who Dat Saints - Louisiana!

P.S. We would have rented for six (6) + months, if it had been available.....

Beautifully amazing

  • 5 of 5

Very clean!!! This house is decorated to impress. There was plenty of pots, pans, and skillets to cook and make homemade meals with. Plenty of linen and extra blankets. Suited our family of 6 perfectly with plenty of room so we weren't all crammed. The beach is directly across the street, very convenient. We really enjoyed this house!!!! We will visit again!!!!

Beautiful home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The location was very convenient to a secluded beach front yet close enough to all other attractions. We highly recommend this home to anyone wishing to have a relaxing vacation.

We had such a great experience on our vacation to Panama City. Made all possible by this absolutely great home. This home had more than enough room for our group of 6 and had everything needed to make our stay just fantastic. Complete kitchen stocked with everything you would need to save that extra money cooking and eating at home. Also the location was awesome, right across the street from the beach literally 2 minutes out the door and toes in the sand.

Perfect location on the strip and down enough to avoid all of the crazy traffic, it has a grocery store just a couple blocks away we walked to for last minute items and nice little ice cream shops for an evening and a cool treat.

When your looking for an affordable spot with plenty of room and the home away from home feel you have found it. The home beautifully decorated and well cared for. Everything was very clean. Air works incredibly well and the house cooled down perfectly when we needed it to.

The owner was such a delight to deal with, she was incredibly professional but took time to answer any and all questions we had. She also located some pictures we had taken and reached out for a mailing address to ensure we got those back. Just awesome, all the hotels I have stayed at or rentals we have used would have thrown all those away and moved on business as usual.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking to have a great time and have a beautiful home to call home while there. We will definitely be going back and will be using this same location on future trips.

This will be my family and friends go to spot when visiting Panama City. We had an amazing time and you will to.

Wonderful family vacation place

  • 5 of 5

This a wonderful house to take your family on vacation. We have 3 young children, 9 years, 6 years, and 5 month old. This house is very close to the beach and not far to carry all the toys, umbrella, and beach supplies. The beach in this area is not very crowded and beautiful. I would highly recommend GIgi's Wheel House!!!

Beautifully Restored Home

  • 4 of 5

This home is in our favorite spot in PCB, Laguna Beach. It has been lovingly and beautifully restored. There are many gorgeous glass decorations all around the house. Perfect for a family with non crawling babies and older kids. (Nice trundle bed downstairs serves as another bedroom) or two couples looking for a nice getaway.

Tip: bring a few extra towels, flat bottom coffee filters and a swiffer to keep a check on the sand because you are only steps away from the most perfect beach

Super Stay and Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property, clean and very accessible to the beach. I can see why it has so many great reviews.

Helen was very easy to communicate with and the neighborhood was very low key and pretty quiet. Easy beach access. I would definitely stay here again.

As noted in description, this house has everything utensil wise you need to cook and soap/tp in the bathrooms along with bottle of dish soap in kitchen.

You'll need to bring extra paper towels and understand any type of seasonings/butter/oil/ S&P/ plastic wrap/ziplock, etc will need to be picked up or brought with. It does have an ice maker which we didn't use. I just picked up 2 bags of ice.

Trundle downstairs pulls out and stays down.

Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are nice.

If you haven't used an e-lock before , ask Helen for locking/unlocking directions. And remember it's the SIDE door not the back.

Plenty of parking for at least 3 possibly 4 FS vehicles.

We went to Bayou Bill Crab House for supper. The Broiled menu was very good.

Carousel Market is great, no need to go anywhere else.

Hit Thomas donut shop up for late night ice cream.
