Overview

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!

About Cara English Catrett

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!

Why Cara English Catrett chose Sunnyside

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The view is great from the cottage!! We enjoyed our wine while sitting on the patio & watching the ocean. The owners were delightful! The cottage is so pretty & quaint! We look forward to our next visit!!

The Blessing cottage was a wonderful place to stay. The location was perfect, it's close to everything! Walk across the street and you are on the beautiful beach. The cottage is very clean and so well kept and it brings back the nostalgia of yesteryears. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

"The Blessings Cottage" Is perfect, fantastic, very clean, full kitchen, amazing, cozy comfortable, excellent place to stay. Truly a blessing, and a home away from home. The Manning's are great folks, couldn't ask for better owners. I am going to miss them. They have made the cottage a special place to visit. The beach is across the street, very easy to get to. Beautiful sunsets. Close to everything, fresh fish, theaters, shopping, restaurants everywhere. My favorite is just being at the cottage, so very quite, and safe area. I love the sunroom and deck.

This is my second time here, and I will deferentially be coming back.

Thank you, Cara, for all your help, you are easy to always work with. Enjoy talking with you.

Thank you, to the Mannigs for your kindness and your wonderful hospitality.

Truly a Blessing in my life. "Michael B. says you guys rock"

Our time there was PERFECT!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the awesome review! You two are some of our favorites. We especially love to have our guests return for second, third, and more visits. I was especially happy to know that the cottage accommodated your nephew's mobility issues and made him feel comfortable. We'll be looking forward to your next visit!

Great Vacation!

When we arrived at "The Blessing" Mr. Manning was tending to his yard. We met him and got a personal tour of the cottage. He was very friendly and gave us advice for restaurants and traveling. The cottage was lovely and had everything you need. Don't bother taking up space by packing your beach/lawn/camping chairs, they have plenty there! They also have a couple kick/boogie boards, masks, snorkels, frisbees and a beach bag. We were happy with the location, away from the hustle and bustle further down beach front road and crowded beaches. Everything was great! We will definitely try to come back! ��������

Family vacation 2014

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very clean and well kept. It was a perfect fit for my family ... we loved that the beach was just across the street and you could see it from the house. the neighborhood was very nice and quiet and great for nice evening walks! Dr. Mike Manning was a joy to chat with ... a very nice man he made you feel welcome and Cara couldn't be any nicer to work with she bent over backwards to help me in my time of need for the loss of a loved one. Thanks enjoyed the stay and hope to return!!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that your stay at the beach was emotionally healing in dealing with your loss. There's something so therapeutic about the sound of the waves, especially on this quiet end of Panama City Beach. Your family was a joy to host. We hope to see you all again very soon!

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!
