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!

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.
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!!
Delightful little house across the street from the beach. We had a wonderful stay the house is comfortable and there is great parking. The beach in this area is not crowed. When returning back from the beach it was nice to have a private outdoor shower for rinsing of the sand and salt. Cara the property manager, did an awesome job with communication and working with our schedule.
The Blessing Cottage is clean, unique, quaint, and in a great location! Cara was so prompt to take care of any of our requests or questions. We loved the pine ceilings and cinder block construction. The history and charm of the cottage gives it such a feel of nostalgia. If you remember the beach before all the hi-rises, you will love this place!
This property was a great location and was right across the street from the beach. It was very comfortable and well stocked. We loved staying there.
I was drawn to "The Blessing" because of that sun porch that begs you to sit for awhile and relax! The Manager, Cara, was prompt in replying to messages and made our stay so enjoyable. This is truly a clean and cozy cottage.
I had a few things in mind when I began to look for a weekend getaway for my friends and me: a quiet area of the beach; gulf view; convenient to shopping in Panama City Beach and Destin and a NO PET policy. The Blessing was indeed a charming blessing and met my wish list. And it didn't hurt at all that the Boar's Head and Mike's Diner, both favorites, were nearby!!
I would definitely come back in warmer weather to enjoy the sundeck and the patio with gulf views, sea breezes and just the smell of the Gulf!
Life is Good at the "Blessings Cottage" everything was Perfect again. This was our 3rd time here. This cottage is a dream come true, it's clean, comfortable, cozy, and just so relaxing,
in the sunroom or just sitting out on the deck. The best beach across the street, you can sit or walk for miles. Truly a home away.
The Mannings are wonderful folks, they sure have that sweet southern hospitality. Thanks
for all you do in making our stay so PERFECT. Thank you.
Cara, thanks again for setting this up for us. You are always easy to work with.
We will be back, and we sure miss it already.
Blessings to all.
Great place to spend your vacation, enjoyed the mornings walking to the beach.
We often had breakfast next door, which we enjoyed very much...
The "Blessing Cottage" was very clean and we enjoyed the patio. Cara was very supportive, many thanks !! We had a very good friend stay with us that lost her husband in May, her loss was very hard on her, but the time we spent together help her a great deal. Christmas time is right around the corner, she plans to visit Germany now..... We will be back soon !
