About David Sample -Families Only No Rentals Under 25- Locally Owned and Self Managed


We are David and Lisa Sample. Lisa and I are local Realtors here in Panama City Beach. We have a Real Estate sales office about 2 miles down the street at Celadon Beach Resort. We liked the area so much we move here in 2005 and became full time residents. We are committed to providing the best vacation spots around with our personally owned and operated properties.

David Sample -Families Only No Rentals Under 25- Locally Owned and Self Managed purchased this cottage in 2015

Why David Sample -Families Only No Rentals Under 25- Locally Owned and Self Managed chose Laguna Beach Estates

Everyone has enjoyed "The Oleander Cottage" (one of our other rentals) located just 3 doors away for years now. So many of our guests want to come back year after year and we just can't stand telling folks it's booked. Our guests have enjoyed the quiet West End of Panama City Beach (Laguna Beach) for years now. With perfect reviews and a full calendar, once again we thought it was time to do something else in the neighborhood. We took what we have learned from the Oleander Cottage and our other condos in the area and poured it all into one. We completely renovated an existing structure to become what we think will be the perfect place for families to make memories for years to come. We completely stripped the inside and outside and built it back with you in mind!

What makes this cottage unique

Right across the street from the Beach! Our 1940's Cottage was just completely renovated... It's all NEW inside. Located in the quiet, family oriented Laguna Beach community this cottage is sure to please. Please include your phone number with your inquiry and will will call you back promptly.

Take a look at the video at the end of our photos to see the actual beach just across the street from this wonderful cottage. We (the owners, David and Lisa Sample) love to give advice for your stay, from where the best fishing spots are to what best to eat! Contact us...

I don't want to leave. Better than Seaside or Rosemary!

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to 30A for the last ten years and have stayed at a variety of locations, including some very expensive spots like Rosemary and Seaside, and this house is my favorite! Everything is new and the owners work very hard to keep everything nice/up to date and it shows. At the other "expensive" spots the houses are very lived in and not even as well maintained as this one. You can tell that this home is not managed by a rental agency, but people that truly value their home and guests. I've always chosen the other locations because I wanted a quieter beach experience and did not want the beach experience that you get when staying in a more central location in PCB. This location is less crowded and very family orientated. I'm still here and already planning my next trip back. I'm truly impressed with the decor, condition, location, owners and convenience of the home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, we really appreciate you taking the time to write us a review! We appreciate your kind words and are honored by fact that you just Booked another week later this year in this same property. This particular property became a labor of love for us. By the time we completed the renovation we wished we had planned to move into it ourselves. By then some of our repeat guests staying just a few door down in our Oleander Cottages got a sneak peek at our progress and made reservations of their own. It was months before we actually got to spend the night there ourselves! We are so glad you guys had a wonderful vacation and look forward to having you back soon. You can see all of our properties by doing a Google Search for David and Lisa's Beach Rentals. (VRBO doesn't allow links here anymore) Thanks again! David

Adorable Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place. They utilized every inch of this house and was laid out very smart. Very close to Panama city with lots of shopping. The owners were very nice too!

Beachy Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! A wonderful place for family and friends to gather! Everyone loved all the room and the welcoming feel to this cottage. The owners are wonderful and attentive if needed. It was also fun using the charcoal grill and hanging outside! Steps away from the beach it was perfect! Just close enough to everything but far enough for privacy and less traffic which we really enjoyed. No need to bring anything but a just a suitcase! Thank you and we look forward to coming back!

Beautiful cottage steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication from owners. Our stay was very pleasant and comfortable.

Only downside....the cottage is smaller than it seems in the pictures. A bit cramped for six adults, but still very cozy and extremely clean. We would stay again.
