About Marty and Kathy Lipinski

We visited Panama City Beach several times and decided that this would be a great place to retire someday. We are from the state of Maryland and love most everything about it. To bring our roots to PCB we named it old bay beach house. The house has two units. The "Nest" is the 1 bedroom/1 bath, fully equipped kitchen, and a sofa bed in living room. Sleeps 4. The "Roost" has 2 bedrooms/ 1 bath, fully equipped kitchen including a dishwasher. There are 3 queen beds and a sofa bed. Sleeps 8. Both units share a huge screened in porch. You'll find Terp Alley on the rear side of the house.This is a patio with an outdoor shower, grill area and laundry room.

Marty and Kathy Lipinski purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Marty and Kathy Lipinski chose Laguna Beach Estates

We searched and searched for just the right lot for us to build on in the future. We narrowed the search to Laguna Beach. This is the west end where it is residential and quiet. Yet all the conveniences, shopping, restaurants etc are very close. Pier Park is just 3 miles away. We then said the lot has to be 1-2 blocks from the Gulf. We were so fortunate to stumble upon exactly what we we were looking for. We are just 1 block from the beach on the corner. What is now our Old Bay Beach House was an unplanned bonus.

What makes this cottage unique

The benefits to this type rental are many. The house is walking distance to either of two beach accesses. Probably less time than waiting for the elevator in a condo building. We have a full kitchen. Cook as much or as little as you want. We have a large yard to play ball etc. The screened in porch and Terp Alley are great gathering places for your family to kick back and relax. You have areas to hide from the sun or seek the sun. Do not miss those spectacular sunsets.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 kids ( 10 and under) and 6 adults enjoyed our stay at the Old Bay Beach House! There was plenty of room. This house really does feel like home. The beach is a block away and was easy even with small children. We rented the golf cart because my husband has trouble walking and it was well worth it. The beach was never crowded which was great and there is a large sandbar that was great with the kids.

The house is the perfectly located! Close to everything but away from the congestion too.

I will say that this house has everything you need for the week. We used the griddle one morning for pancakes. The kitchens have plenty of cookware and utensils. We did bring our own hand soap, dish soap, TP, paper towels and garbage bags but didn't need to! That was nice!

Loved the screened in porch were we could just hang out and enjoy each other and the outdoor shower was great especially with all the kids!

There were plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas too. There were also 2 boogie boards and some beach toys. There is a old beat up cart that we used to carry all at gear to the beach. Use it! It works. Everything you need is already there!

The only issue we had was the wifi. We wanted to watch some movies on Netflix but just couldn't get past the buffering and we couldn't find the DVD player. I am sure we just overlooked it. Having satellite was nice.

This was our first trip to PCB and my husbands first time seeing the beach. I put a lot of research into finding the perfect place to stay. This was it. It was the perfect place for us and I cannot wait to come back.

Perfect two family beach house

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. Despite its age, it is well updated and very clean. We had two families, one with 5 and the other with 3 so it worked out perfect for us. We chose not to rent the optional golf cart and the short walk to the beach was easy, even with little kids. The beach was great and most days was not very crowded. There is a nice sand bar there and relatively mild waves, even during red flag, which was great for the little kids. We were able to see two sets of fireworks from the beach on the 4th of July and it was great not having to fight traffic to get home. The house was very clean and well stocked. The only thing we found lacking was a set of tongs for frying our fresh caught fish. The local woman who let us in was very prompt, polite and a wealth of information about the local area. The screened in porch with rocking chairs and swing was great when we got too cold in the ac...which we worked great! Outdoor shower and clothes line came in VERY handy! Thank you for letting us stay in your house!!

Old Bay Beach house is AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Marty & Kathy were so great to work with on the rental. They quickly responded to all questions we had. Upon arrival the PM showed us around and gave tips on the best places to eat and the easiest routes in the area. We fell in love the moment we arrived!! The kitchen was nicely stocked which made it easy to enjoy a few family breakfasts and dinners :) The beach house comfortably fit our family of 11. The beds are AMAZINGLY comfortable, which makes for a great rest on vacation!! The golf cart rental was the best thing we did!! It made it very convenient to drive to the beach access with my 1 year old neice! The neighborhood is cart friendly! Screened in porch was wonderful to sit in the evenings with our family and make memories! :) I personally cannot think of anything that could have been better! We will definitely stay again if given the chance!!! You will love the Old Bay Beach House!!!!!
