Sunnyside Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

If you've ever dreamed of escaping to your very own private beach cottage, this is your dream come true! Ours is probably the most adorable cottage in Sunnyside. We have artfully decorated family areas, cozy bedrooms, and a bright, spacious sunroom.

You'll fall in love with the gulf views from our outside balcony and deck. There's also a back yard deck with a grill for your convenience. Our yards are beautifully landscaped and are covered with lush green grass.

No detail has been overlooked in refurbishing and modernizing this one-of-a-kind beach home. Period details like rich heart pine ceilings and original cottage doors have been lovingly refinished to maintain the character of this vintage Florida cottage. One look and we know you'll love it as much as we do!

Cara English Catrett just loves renting this delightful cottage to beach visitors. Purchased in 1990 by Dr. Michael Manning and Dr. Gayle Merritt Manning of Albany, Georgia, 'The Blessing' cottage was lovingly restored and updated so that they would have an inviting and relaxing beach home. During the past few years the owners have added numerous unique design features and conveniences. They decided to share 'The Blessing' beach cottage to vacationing guests in 2009 after building a new home in Panama City Beach. We hope you'll be our next guests!

Cara English Catrett purchased this cottage in 1990

Sunnyside is the quiet, family friendly end of Panama City Beach without the high-rise condominiums. The area is mostly small cottages in the vintage Florida style. The best part is that we are right across the street from the beach!

Our guests love being able to park just outside the door. There's no long line of guests trying to check in or elevators to wait on. We have two patios - 1 with adirondack chairs and a bistro set out front; the other with a gas grill out back. Our upper deck has gorgeous views of the gulf. We also have luxurious grass to walk on in the yard.

SUNNYSIDE AND THE BLESSING ARE SUCH TREATS!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the week of the Fourth of July at the Blessing with our two girls 26 and 16. We celebrated our daughters 16th birthday at the beach! It was a perfect vacation and beautiful cottage! We loved the back yard, enjoyed the use of the grill and patio, enjoyed long naps and going out in the late afternoon to the beach. The cottage was also in the perfect location to the store, making it very convenient. We visited our favorite spots in Seaside--Frostbites, Bud and Alleys, and the Sugar Shak in Rosemary. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: What a great way to celebrate a sweet 16 birthday - at the beach! Lucky girl! It sounds like the perfect fun and relaxing vacation. This was probably the quietest area of Panama City Beach on the busiest week of the year. I'm so glad that you all enjoyed your stay, and I really appreciate the great review. Maybe you should just plan to celebrate her 17th birthday with us as well!

GREAT PLACE TO RELAX WITH YOUR FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
When looking for a place to stay most all of the place would just email me no rooms. But not Cara she called me and gave me all the info that I needed. She was very helpful on everything! The cottage was very clean and cheerful! It was nice to wake up and drink my coffee on the porch and look and the ocean. Just a straight walk across the street to the beach which was so peaceful. No big crowds, water was clear, and the sand was white. Just a quick drive to all the attractions. We will be back!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review and especially for your sweet compliments. I do try to call potential guests whenever possible. I think that's the best way to give you more details about our cottage and the Panama City area. Your description of our little part of the beach pretty much detailed all my favorite things about this location. I'm so glad you had a great time, and I hope you come again soon!

SPRING BREAK AT "THE BLESSING"

Spring Break at "The Blessing"
  • 5 of 5
My 3 friends and I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing time at "The Blessing" cottage! We were so pleased at the cleanliness of this cottage, the nice yard and surroundings, and loved the short walk over to the beach. We also took advantage of grilling, using the patio, and sunning on the sundeck. We did a lot of cooking during the day and had everything we needed to cook up some fun vacation food. The washer and dryer came in very handy too. Shopping at Pier Park was not too far away. We would love to spend another Spring Break at "The Blessing". We would consider flying in and using the beach trolley for our excursions to Pier Park and the grocery store.

Owner's Response: I'm happy to hear that you and your girlfriends had a relaxing and fun Spring Break at our beach cottage. And since you are the second person recently to mention the beach trolley service, I've made it a point to get some information on trolley schedules and routes to keep at the cottage for our guests' convenience. We enjoyed having you all as our guests and look forward to your return!

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
What an absolutely wonderful vacation at the Blessing cottage. The cottage has everything you need and is kept spotless. The area is quite, but close to anything you want or need. This was a pure rest and relaxation time for me, so I didn't venture far from the cottage very much at all. I enjoyed some quite time on the beach, walks/runs through the neighborhood (friendly folks throughout). Spent a lot of hours on the front deck in the late afternoons and had a few meals there, too. Cooked almost all meals at the cottage and enjoyed quite evenings. The kitchen has all you need to cook anything you want and there is a grill outside. Beautiful view of the ocean from the front deck or, even better from the deck over the drive. On rainy days or days when you've had too much sun, the sun room on the front of the cottage is fantastic. The owners and property manager are all first class. The only thing lacking was more time to stay! Will definitely return soon.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad to hear that you had a relaxing and enjoyable week at our cottage and that you also enjoyed the neighborhood. We love this end of the beach because as you discovered, we can still enjoy some quiet time even in the midst of Spring Break. Thank you again for the wonderful review, and we look forward to having you stay with us again.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We loved "The Blessing" it is as cute and comfortable as can be. The thing I was most impressed with was that it was pristine and smelled so good! The decor was absolutely charming, Cara was excellent to work with and so helpful.The perfect place to spend a family vacation so much to do, in Panama City Beach. We cooked at the cottage most of the time however we did visit the Sunnyside cafe right next door for breakfast one day and it was very good. There also was shopping at Pier Park and Jimmy Buffet's Margurita Ville, beautiful white sand beach and clear emerald green water to snorkel in. We would definately recommend THE BLESSING!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy to hear how much you enjoyed The Blessing cottage. The decor and atmosphere of the cottage is my favorite thing about being there. It's meant to feel like a family beach home; and it sounds like your family felt right at home. I knew you'd like the Sunnyside Grill, two doors away. They cook breakfast for me every time I stay at the cottage! Thank you so much for taking time to provide such a nice review. Come see us again soon!

PEACEFUL COTTAGE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the most amazing time staying at "The Blessing" Cottage! It was the perfect location for us because we wanted something that was in peaceful and quiet area. The walk over to the beach was not far at all and the beach area was not crowded. The Cottage was the perfect size for our family of 5 and we could have still had room for 2 or 3 more. Both beds were very comfy and it was nice to have a bath tub for my 2 year old who we still give a bath. I would and have reccommended this place to all of my friends and family. We had an amazing time and I cannot wait to plan our next stay at "The Blessing" Cottage!
