'BANANA CABANA'

'YOU'VE FINALLY FOUND 'YOUR HAPPY PLACE' '!!

Wow~ONLY 1 block to the Beach Access & Scenic 30A! 'Banana Cabana' is very close to The World Renowned 'Idyllic' Town of Seaside: Approx. 1 mi East. All Seaside Shops, Restaurants & Activities--they are just a very short drive or leisurely bike ride away! And the beach?....Well, this is what you came for!!

We Fell in Love with Seagrove Beach & moved here 15 years ago. We love this 'Funky Ole Beach Town' with it's Laid Back Atmosphere & Friendly Locals! We met a Special Family that had lived here in Seagrove for many years. We always loved their Ole Funky Cottage & said: 'If you ever want to sell'.......... Well one day they did & we are Sooo Glad We Did!! We rolled up our sleeves & restored this 1938 Cottage to it's Former Glory, But Even Better!!

We hope you will Love 'Banana Cabana' as much as we do! We would Love to share it with Guests of Family & Friends that will Truely Respect & Appreciate the Charm & Attributes of what 'Banana Cabana' has to offer!

We absolutely Love 'Banana Cabana' & its Very Private, yet Convenient Location!! It's our 'Home' away from Home! It is such a Joy to be there with all the different & special areas both inside & outside to enjoy. The Pool--Of Course! Our Huge Screened Porch is Great for an afternoon nap. The Tropical Koi Fish Pond, with the fountains & the fish--Its sooo relaxing! If your here @ the right time of year the frogs singing is Great. Our 'Tree-Top' Playhouse is its own little getaway! The Private Courtyard w/Outdoor Fireplace is a Romantic Evening just waiting to happen & our Grill area is Great too!

Thank you for the use of your beautiful beach house. We couldn't have asked for anything better. We all felt very much at home and enjoyed everything about it. One of our favorite things was the screened-in porch. We would all end up there in the morning before starting our day and we also ended up there every evening enjoying our drinks and each other's company. It was a great family vacation. Thanks Again! Paul, Carol and Family

This was the best family vacation ever! Having your own private pool was the best!! We pretty much stayed in our swim suits all week. The walk to the beach was not far at all. We drove into Destin for shopping and a couple of times to eat out. Then drove the other direction to Panama City for the same. We ate most meals at the house - outside of course, enjoying every bit of the house. We plan to be back next year, it was very hard to leave.

Thank you for creating a home away from home for our whole Family to enjoy! We swam everyday in the pool & enjoyed having the beach so close-by! We grilled everynight. Austin & Alex liked Tiger--They got to pet him. They really liked the Tree-Top Playhouse--They slept there every night!

We enjoyed Banana Cabana so much that we'd like to make this our Family Tradition! We live so far away from each other that we have to look forward to visits like these. We were so comfortable here & were able to Truely Relax & Enjoy Ourselves! We loved morning beach walks & Seaside & of course The Golf--Our Family doesn't go without it! The Doughnut Hole for Breakfast Is A Must! Angelina's Pizza! Thank You & See You Next Year!

Our Family vacation at the Banana Cabana

We loved our stay at Banana Cabana! The house was so spacious and clean. It was perfectly decorated and had sooo much character. I am a mother of three, ages 9, 7 and 1 year and let me tell you this place was perfect! We have stayed in hotels lots of times before but could never get comfortable because the beds are awful, the pillows are flat, and the kids are loud. So this vacation we decided to try a beach cottage for a week. This was the perfect decision, and I couldn't imagine going back to another hotel after this experience. First, we didn't have to worry about upsetting other guests because the kids were being loud, since we were the only people staying there. Second, the accomidations were so homey and comfortable! The beds were soft (and we didn't have to share a room with kids) and the pillows were just the way we like them. Third, there was so much room that the kids could all be in different areas of the house and not fight!!!! The house was also baby proof and even had a pack and play and highchair (which we didn't have room to pack with us for the trip). The pool was just the right size and we spent a lot of time in the screened in porch. We saved a lot of money cooking lunch and some dinners at the cottage too. We have been to this area of Florida several times before so we love the Seaside area. The house is in walking distance (with kids) to the beach and eating. As a mother of young children and a wife I would recommend this destination to anyone and will definitley be going back soon!!!

We spent Thanksgiving weekend in Banana Cabana and absolutely loved it. It was very nicely decorated, convenient to the beach and Seaside. Kids loved the yard and the playhouse. Although we didn't use the pool, I know that would be great in warmer weather as well. Lots of great details in the home. Very cute!! We will definitely stay here again.
