Summer Towne Cottages on Front Beach Road in Panama City Beach, FL is quite possibly the most convenient location in the entire area along the beaches. You can fly into Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP), take a shuttle 20 miles from the airport, and never have to drive a car. Everything you could need from the gorgeous beaches, grocery/convenience, and all of the Pier Park attractions are within a short stroll from the house.
From the vantage point of your third level porch... with your cup of coffee or glass of wine... you have a front row seat to breathtaking sunrises and dazzling sunsets over the emerald waters of the Gulf. What a wonderful 'home base' for your family's vacation! Our brightly painted cottage-like home is located at the end of the row, and with three different porches and many windows. You will always have a changing view of the Gulf and surrounding area.
The spacious top floor living area with access to the porch is designed with your family's comfort and needs in mind. The kitchen is large and fully stocked. The master bedroom features a queen size bed and a private bath with tub/shower combination, two vanity sinks and a huge walk-in closet. Best of all, the bedroom has a quiet sitting area and its own private porch for those quiet moments when you just need to get away.
Facing the pool (north) is a bedroom that features two sets of bunks with twin beds and is near the guest bathroom in the hallway on the 2nd floor.
The third bedroom is on the ground level and has its own private full bath. It features a bunk bed with full on bottom and twin bed on top.
Unlike condos with their huge parking garages and elevators, you have only to pull into your own private carport and walk a few steps to your home. Convenience plus if you feel like hanging out, there is a private community pool right in your backyard.
Or, just across the street is a public access to 200' of vacant sugary white sandy beach. This beach is also pet friendly. When you return there is a handy outdoor shower just to the right of the front door. No gritty sand once you're back inside!
A short walk away is Pier Park, the largest shopping center in Northwest Florida. Across Front Beach Rd from Pier Park, extending 1500 feet into the Gulf is the Dan Russell City Pier, a world class fishing pier with fabulous views and even better fishing. You can walk there, too!
Pier Park, with it's open air layout and endless shopping and restaurant opportunities will keep you entertained for a long time. It is home to familiar retailers, but also offers many small local shops with unique gifts and treasures for all. Restaurants like Margaritaville, Guy Harvey's Island Grill, Reggae J's, and many more are sure to please everyone's tastes. The complex features walking paths, a kiddies amusement park during much of the year, and specialized events, like the Summer Concert Series and Seabreeze Jazz Festival. The Grand Theater offers 16 different theaters. If you're tired at the end of your fun day and don't want to walk, just hop on a trolley for the short ride home!
When you do want to wander further afar, you are just a very short drive to other destinations like Frank Brown Park with its baseball fields, playgrounds, fishing and picnic areas, and an aquatic center. It is also host to many fun events like the Seafood Festival, Music Fest, Thunder Beach and other annual traditions.
For a change, check out Shell Island, a natural, undeveloped island which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrews Bay. It is home to one of the world's highest concentrations of bottle-nosed dolphins, and the island's pristine beauty and abundant wildlife make it an enjoyable and exciting way to spend the day.
At the end of your fun day, relax in the comforts of your vacation home. Sneak out onto your own private porch off the master bedroom... or, head back out to that same third level porch to bask in the waning sunlight. As the seagulls soar over the sand and surf, soak in those final rays of sun and allow yourself to be mesmerized by the many fiery hues of gold, red, pink and orange as the sun sinks into the sea. Just another day in Paradise!
We would love to share our vacation home with you, and our little piece of Paradise. Thank you for considering it as you make your family's vacation plans.

Owner • Manager purchased this cottage in 2016
Size, View, LOCATION!!!!!
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!... Yes, we think it's in a great spot! Right next to Pier Park, Frank Brown, Beach Access, Close to airport, you name it!
We had a great stay- perfect location! Owner was super nice & easy to work with. The house was clean with great beach access. We had 2 families & there was plenty of room for everyone. The downstairs bedroom could really use bunker boards under the mattress. The couple we stayed with said their bed was uncomfortable and that the mattress was held up by 2x4s that would move out of place. Might be ok for kids, but not adults. Other than that everything was ideal!
We had a great time in the Big Orange House. Great location, good view of beach and sunset from top balcony.
House was very clean, lots of space good for large groups.
Within walking distance of Pier Park, Fishing Pier and good resturants.
Love PCB and good music on Beach 95.1
Thanks Tonya you were very helpful

Cottage was great! Lots of room and very clean! Great access to beach and pool! Right next to Pier Park. Only small glitch was the wi-fi didn't work well but will definitely come back! Hopefully next year!
As a procrastinator I waited till the last minute to make my reservation. The owner was great to work with, he replied to my emails quickly answering all the questions I had and made sure everything worked out to complete my reservation. We arrived at the condo on Sat 5/14/2016 to a beautiful and well maintained home. It has an excellent location, just a few minutes walk to Pier Park and all the shops and restaurants. It is directly across the street to a public beach access so you are only steps away from the white sands and emerald waters of the Gulf. It is a pet friendly location which is not always easy to find which made it perfect for us since we were traveling with our Yorkie. It will sleep about 10 people so there is plenty of space for a large family or group. I will definitely check on this property for availability for our next trip to Panama City Beach. You can't go wrong in selecting this unit.
We live how close this is to Pier Park. Great views . Close to shopping and so much easier to access than the condos with their parking garages.
We stayed the week of April 1, 2016 and we had a wonderful time!! The condo was even better than the pictures and description. There was plenty of room for everyone. It was within walking distance to Pier Park and the beach (right across the street) which the kids loved. We will definitely be back! Thanks for such a great experience!
You can't go wrong with this location! So close to everything for the entire family no matter what time of year!
