Bright Beach Colored Rooms With Colorful Fun Furniture.

Banana Cabana is our idea of what coming to the beach is all about. When we bought our little cottage back in 2006 we wanted it to look & feel like the beach. Bright beach colored rooms with colorful fun furniture.

Our little cottage is one block off the beach. You literally step off the front porch onto the quiet alleyway, walk past two houses, take a right and across the road is the dedicated beach access with miles of pet friendly, usually, non-crowded, white sandy beaches.

Our entire yard has a white picket fence which is great for pets or kids.

We have 2 bedrooms downstairs. 1 queen in one bedroom and 1 double in the other bedroom. Both have ceiling fans.

There is a carpeted loft upstairs with two single beds, best for kids.

Large downstairs bedroom closets, hardwood floors, more windows than wall space downstairs so plenty of fresh air & light. We have 1 bathroom with a shower, no tub but endless hot water.

Our cottage is in a quiet neighborhood called Beacon Hill which is between Saint Joe Beach & Mexico Beach. We are in the Eastern time zone however we are less than a 1/4 mile from Central time zone which is great at New Years, we can celebrate twice.

                                                              This is a nice,clean little piece of heaven.Everything you need is there.only about 110 steps to the beach. very well decorated every neighbor was nice and friendly. Fantastic fenced in yard.,unless you have a small dog mine could get threw bars.i plan on renting this property again very soon.

                                                              Cozy Cottage

                                                              Very cozy. Close to the beach. Great to have a fenced in yard. My only complaint is that the yard is basically sand, and it gets everywhere. FYI...no WiFi, bring all the essentials. I would rent here again.

                                                              We loved our stay at the little yellow house. Dogs loved it too, it is really great to have a fenced area for them to run around and still be safe. So convenient to the beach and all of MX beach.

                                                              Our second time staying here this year!

                                                              We stayed here in July and we loved this cottage so much we decided to return again for our October vacation. This time we used the bikes & biked around the neighborhood. We enjoyed time on the screened in porches and grilled out on the grill several nights for dinner. And of course my little dog Jacey loved it too! The short walk to the beach makes this a great place to stay. Thanks again for having us! We hope to be back!
