About Mary Ann Hoagland

My husband and I purchased this home in June 2016. We stayed at Emerald Pointe Resort just months before in April. We loved the atmosphere and safe, friendly community this resort offers. We decided to invest and purchase a place here so our family , including our three grandchildren would have a place to go on vacations at the beach each year. We would also have a place to go in the winter time to escape the cold. Emerald Pointe is a well kept secret at PCB. We invite you to stay at our place, and hope you may experience the home away from home atmosphere this resort and cottage offers.

What makes this cottage unique

We chose this home because of its location in the community. Our cottage is conveniently located on the stocked catch and release pond. It has a screened in back porch, overlooking the pond offering privacy and relaxation. We like the option of having our morning coffee on the boardwalk, or in the privacy of our porch. One of the community pools is just steps from the front door, (another convenience if you have children that like to swim).

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to stay here! Thank you, Mary! We had everything we needed and the pool was just steps away. The beach was a short drive away. Location is also wonderful for getting downtown to Panama City, where we had to be everyday for a competition. I'm hopeful we can stay again in 2 years when we return. Everything surpassed my expectations. It was wonderful!

Perfect for a quiet family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 5 night stay and we had everything that we needed. I loved waking up every morning and stepping right out the back screen door to drink my coffee on the boardwalk on the lake. Beautiful home!

Tranquility at it's best

  • 5 of 5

This was my favorite place that we've stayed in PCB by far. The community was so inviting and tranquil. I asked my 5 yr old son what he liked best about our trip to PCB and he said "I liked the place we stayed best! And I liked going swimming in the pool!". He had a great time fishing off the boardwalk with his dad. Mary Ann was great to work with. She even helped figure out a solution when we had to change our dates. She is very responsive and checked in with us to make sure we enjoyed her home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. The catch and release pond is a favorite for the little ones, as well as having the pool close by. Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay.
