Overview

Hollywood Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This family oriented cottage is located on the beautiful beaches of the Gulf. A step out the porch door puts you on your way to a day of sun, fun, and the clearest waters ever. The glass enclosed sleeping porch sleeps four and is perfect for the children of the family.

This is truly a beachfront cottage. Two flights of stairs, shown in the photos end at the beach - which is perfect for beach combing and long walks!

Our cottage is available for rental Spring through Fall (March 15 - November 15).

A legacy from Old Florida, the property is close to Carillon Beach and Inlet Beach. It is a relaxing location, but near to many area attractions for those who like a more active pace. Even though you're at the quiet end of Panama City Beach you're still close to many restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, biking, hiking, not to mention all the water fun on the gulf. To the west you're only a short drive to Scenic 30-A, home to many upscale shops and restaurants. Going east takes you to the fun spots of Panama City Beach including Pier Park for movies, restaurants and shopping.

Keywords: Friendly, comfortable cottage on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico Beaches.

Family from Indiana

We had the best time. The cabin could have used some updates but was a good fit for my sister's family and mine. The scene from the porch every morning was amazing. The beach was not only a beautiful white but we saw starfish, dolphins and found a lot of seashells. We played on the beach every day and I was able to cook for all 8 of use comfortable in the kitchen. We even had a chance to talk with some of the locals that were walking the beach in the mornings as well and they were all so pleasant and welcoming. Although we were nervous of the "spring breakers" the location of the cottage kept us close to restaurants but away enough that it was peaceful and pleasant. Joanna was amazing to work with. She was pleasant and quick to respond to emails. We hope that we can rent it again next year. Only suggestion would be to make sure you wear flip flops in the path to the beach as there are little burs that were not pleasant to step on.

Perfect View of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Mike and I just got home from a three week stay. We Loved It! One of our best vacations we have taken. We spent most of our time at the beach or on the screened in patio. We had a perfect view of the beautiful white sand beach and the Emerald Ocean. There were at least three pods of dolphins that would swim by everyday jumping and playing up and down the coast. Johanna was amazing to work with. We can’t wait to return-it’s going to be a long cold winter.

beach cottage needs tlc

  • 2 of 5

I can say that the location is just awesome, a very short walk down the path to the beach. the cottage Is small a could use a few updates.. We did not know that you have to walk thru one bedroom to get to the next. there is no queen bed both full. the screened sleeping room could be more inviting. they sprayed before we arrived we had at least 30 dead roach's to clean up. we had at least 2 a day after that. The cottage is not very clean. the yard has burers really bad the dogs were loaded and could not walk in the yard. They need to put grass in and spray for fire ants. We could not sit outside without ants biting you and getting on you. We could not leave the dogs out at all. With a little tlc and a good cleaning the place would be awesome!

Owner's Response: We appreciate and encourage candid reviews from our guests. We make available several names and contact numbers to address any concerns. With this information, we can make an effort to rectify the problem. We wish we had heard from these guests during their stay. We apologize for their concerns and encourage our guests to notify us ASAP with any maintenance issues. With respect to the size of sleeping accommodations, information presented in our VRBO listing is correct: 1 queen, 1 full, and 4 twin beds. As discussed in the listing and portrayed in the provided photographs, the queen and full bedrooms are adjoining and share a bath. The sleeping porch, has 4 twin beds and a separate bath. We make concerted efforts to limit "palmetto pests" but sometimes the proximity and openness to the "great outdoors" wins out, and our guests are disappointed. Again, we apologize for their concerns and encourage our guests to notify us ASAP with any maintenance issues.

Amazing Views, Perfect Beach

  • 4 of 5

The Beach is AMAZING!! My favorite is the lounge chair on the deck shaded by a palm tree with a million dollar view of the beach!! We have kids so I loved relaxing outside while they napped. With few people on the beach, the boys could walk from the beach to the house. Beds were comfortable. We look forward to returning!!

Campy Feel

  • 4 of 5

So if you are into Ritzy this is not for you. If you are familiar with camps in Grand Isle Louisiana then this is perfect for you. Of course the best part is being right on the beach. THIS IS AWESOME!! The cottage fit all 5 of us comfortably VERY CLEAN. I saw the other reviews and was worried about this cottage, but it was really clean. It was just old. The air unit in the front room was not working properly when we arrived but we called Mr Heywood and it was quickly replaced. Kids loved it there ages 16, 15, 13. We were right in the middle of everything close to water parks and Pier Park which we really enjoyed. I would definitely stay here again. The accommodations were perfect for our family.
