About the property

Book now for spring. You won't find many heated pools in a like new home at the quiet west end. We will have the heater set to 85 degrees during March through then end of May.

Sandpiper Cottage at Laguna Beach has everything you could dream of in a vacation rental home. Located at the quiet west end of Panama City Beach, this home is proof that location means everything. It is located 1 short block from the gorgeous emerald water and white sandy beaches of the gulf of Mexico. It is also just 3 miles from Pier Park & City Pier* (with unlimited shopping, dining, and entertainment options), 1 mile from the famous Thomas's Donuts, and 5 miles from Rosemary beach. You can experience everything 30A has to offer for a FRACTION of the cost of staying in Rosemary, Watercolor or Seaside. Plus, you can retreat to your quiet oasis after you have had your fill of the crowds. Sandpiper is a 3 bedroom 2 bath home that was newly built in 2014. Private in-ground POOL with water geysers, a large sundeck, and fully fenced backyard were just added in Dec 2016. We even provide a GOLF CART at NO additional charge so you can zip down to the beach in seconds. Laguna Beach is golf cart friendly so you can take it down to Carousel Supermarket, or Thomas's. We provide beach towels, 4 beach chairs, and sand toys for the kids (or just those young at heart). Add FREE wifi internet, flat screen TV's in the living room and ample outdoor living space, and you have the perfect vacation experience.

About Erica M

Hi we are Erica and John, the owners of Sandpiper Cottage at Laguna Beach. We are 2 college biology professors and parents of 5 children. In addition to having 3 biological children, we have grown our family through foster care. We love spending time together at the beach, hiking, swimming, biking, and anything else that puts us out in nature.

Erica M purchased this house in 2016

Why Erica M chose Laguna Beach Estates

We were searching for a house big enough for our family that we could stay in a few times per year (during our breaks from teaching). Once per year visits to the beach was just not enough! We fell in love with Laguna Beach because the neighborhood feels so quiet and private and yet it is just minutes from anything you could ever want to do. There aren't any high-rise condos or hotels in this area, so the beach is much less crowded than other areas in Panama City Beach. Much of the beachfront in Laguna Beach is undeveloped and zoned to stay that way to protect the beautiful natural dunes. Being biology professors conservation is important to us and having an area where we can see natural coastal species of birds and plants just steps from our door has been amazing. We love Pier Park for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Heading west on 30A is a whole world of experiences waiting for us. We can enjoy the French architecture in Rosemary Beach with dinner at La Cocina or Pizza by the Sea and then walk down by the Pearl Hotel to see the breathtaking views. Or we can take in the beauty of Alys Beach architecture modeled after that found in the Bahamas on our way to Seaside. Seaside is fun, laid back kind of beach town. It is an amazing place to rent a bike and explore. The beach access is open to the public and there are limitless dining opportunities awaiting us from the Taco Bar, to Barefoot BBQ, or the "best burger on 30A" at Pickles. Being gluten free and vegan Raw and Juicy and Taco Bar are my favorites! We can head to Topsail for hiking and more natural dunes and public beach access or to Saint Andrew's for the protected jetty. From St. Andrew's we can take a ferry to Shell Island, which is a 7-mile long island of protected natural beach for shelling, snorkeling, and just plain relaxing. For us, we are always counting down the days until our next trip because there is so much we cannot wait to do.

What makes this house unique

This location is so unique in how private the house feels, the quiet, but friendly neighbors, and the proximity to so much entertainment to meet every type of personality and interest.

I can’t say enough good things about this place. This was our first family vacation and it was absolutely perfect! Our kids are begging to stay here, they are not ready to go home. If we return to PCB we will be coming back to this house!! Also If I had any questions, Erica responded quickly to them. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home!!

Perfect place to enjoy time with your closest friends!

  • 5 of 5

Just a couple of girls looking to get away for a long weekend, and this home was it! Perfect house, perfect location, perfect amenities! We did come across a small problem during our stay and the owners were real quick to take care of it! One of my friends has a little boy with cerebral palsy so when the beach was to much he was able to relax in the amazing pool! I know I will be booking this home for personal vacations and maybe more girl trips!

Relaxing stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to be vacationing in Florida and the home that we chose could not of been any better! The house was exactly as was shown on Home Away. We loved the fenced in heated pool and patio area. The home was private and not in a congested area. Our family enjoyed the golf cart that we could take to the beach which was just a block away. Another big plus was that the master bathroom had a walk in shower which was great for us older folks. We would rent this home again if we ever return to Laguna Beach. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!!

Great home in quiet area of Laguna Beach. Close to all attractions.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property and Erica is very responsive to any questions or issues you might have regarding your stay. Close to the beach and the golf cart is a great plus for going to store, Thomas’, or the beach. The pool area is lovely and the home is in nice shape. I would definitely stay in this property again if in the area.
