Overview

Sunnyside Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage- TWO units with 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Clean, bright and airy ' old Florida' beach cottage duplex located on the peaceful west end of Panama City Beach. Extra large screened in Florida room with wonderful ocean breezes. One and a half blocks from the beach in a quiet desirable residential neighborhood. Original terrazzo flooring. Recently remodeled by local award winning artists Yolie and Ron Strickland. Great attention to detail was used when decorating and remodeling this cottage.

There are so many things to do and see on Panama City Beach. We strive to place you in a state of mind to fully seek them and find peace. This is the cleanest and most tastefully decorated cottage rental on the beach. It is designed to be reminiscent of old Florida long before Disney and the circus of spring break. There is always a breeze and the salt air reminds you of why you came to Panama City Beach. Sunnyside has some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida.

Imagine relaxing with cool coastal breezes and cocktails at sunset. Safely stroll peaceful beaches on moonlit nights. Listen to the waves gently lap the shore as you fall asleep. Awake restfully over coffee on the ample screened-in porch at sunrise, ready to take on another adventurous new day.

Your roomy bedroom is equipped with a queen sized Serta perfect sleeper new mattress. There is a ceiling fan , along with plenty of lighting for reading and cable television. Your room is un-cluttered, very clean, and comfortable. The bathroom is just steps away.

We truly want you to enjoy panama city beach as much as we do. This vacation cottage has it all and is ready for you to enjoy it.

Ron and Yolie Strickland purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Ron and Yolie Strickland chose Sunnyside

I GREW UP IN PANAMA CITY AND REMEMBER COMING TO THE BEACH AS IF IT WERE GOING TO A FANTASY LAND. THERE WERE SAND DUNES TALLER THAN OUR CAR. THE WEST END OF THE BEACH ALWAYS HAD A SPECIAL FEEL TO IT. IT STILL DOES TODAY AS IT IS NIGHT AND DAY FROM THE CLUSTER OF HIGHRISES AND HOTELS. SOMEHOW IT HAS KEPT IT'S CHARM. I FELL IN LOVE WITH MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE HERE. THERE IS SOMETHING MAGICAL HERE ON THIS SMALL SLICE OF BEACH.

What makes this cottage unique

I LOVE THE SUNSETS FROM THE WEST WINDOW THE MOST. THE PROPERTY IS QUIET AND PEACEFUL. THERE IS ALWAYS A BREEZE AND THE LARGE PORCH IS CALMING. I ALWAYS FEEL LIKE I'M IN REAL FLORIDA. I KNOW THE BEACH IS JUST STEPS AWAY.

Relaxing and Rejuvinating

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were there to actually oversee our daughter and some friends during High School spring break. I didn't expect to actually relax much but once I walked into this place, all my worries went out the window. It was very bright and clean and beautifully decorated. I did some reading each morning on the beautiful and quiet front porch. I also felt safe to walk by myself around the area. The walk to the beach was just a few minutes away, as well as a lot to see within a short drive. Thanks to Ron and Yolie for being such great hosts. I would recommend this cottage and come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you both . We are so happy that you had a great relaxing vacation. I know you deserved it after the delays in your flight schedule and the worries of High school spring break. It must have been fate that brought your entire family into the exact same small neighborhood and eventually to the cottage. We would love to have you back. Please stay in touch, We really liked your friendship. Ron and Yolie

Everything at the house was awesome, The neighborhood was nice and quite and it was super clean. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a reasonable place to stay in that area. Also it was only about 10-15 minutes from Panama City Beach which made it even better.

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most relaxing time here! I am an artist and I am always looking for inspiration and this is the place to come for it! Just a couple minutes walk to the beach and I spent four days walking it and absorbing the beauty of the gulf coast. Ron and Yolie are the most wonderful hosts you'll ever meet! Very informative about area and where to dine and go for recreation. The house is wonderfully clean and as all of the amenities of home! Would highly recommend this charming and cozy rental! Truly inspiring!!
