About George

Fran and I are both in the aviation industry, and plan on spending more time down here when we retire. We have kids and grandkids that love to come down here and enjoy Nana and Pops beach house.

George purchased this cottage in 2010

Why George chose Florida Panhandle

George had to work down here several years ago, and we fell in love with the beautiful views, slow pace, and friendly atmosphere. We live in Atlanta and try to get down here every long weekend that we can. Now we have our own place right here on the beach that we would like to share with 'Yall'.

What makes this cottage unique

First and formost you will enjoy the view. You can wake up or fall asleep listening to the waves and actually see the water from bed that is less than 100 yards away.Then you will enjoy the fun, friendly, slower paced atmosphere of Mexico Beach. We love morning walks, and sunset strolls on the beach. There are several beach pubs and resturants that are within walking distance, or short ride. You can fish right on the beach in front of the house, go down to the pier, or go out for a 1/2 or full day fishing charter. Or you can go for a bike ride around Mexico Beach. (Bike, fishing polls, beach chairs and umbrellas are all furinshed with the cottage.) Within 30 minutes you can be in Appalacheecola bay, Cape Sand Blas, or Panama City. Scalloping is also fun when in season. You can also enjoy some of the worlds best oysters in this area.

Beautiful slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Great spot! The beach was amazing and the location couldn't have been more convenient. The sunroom provides direct views of the water and was the perfect start and end to the day.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time,,the house and location were awesome. It was our first time in Mexico Beach. Our 18 & 20 year old children preferred it over our usual vacation spot at Panama City Beach! After we check our schedules we"ll probably book next years trip!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that y'all had a great time....it says a lot on how you raised your kids. Preferring the tranquil, laid back atmosphere of Mexico Beach over the amusement parks, traffic, and hustle and bustle of Panama city....it is all still there to visit with in 30 or 40 minutes of Mexico beach, so relaxing to stay in Mexico Beach.

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very nice with a short walk to the beach. The fishing cart made it easy to transport toys and towels to the beach. Well equipped kitchen that made cooking meals easy. Our family of four had a very pleasant stay.

Started our Summer Break in Paradise

  • 4 of 5

Convenience to the beach and location were perfect. Everything about the photos were true except the sunset views from the front porch. Those were better than a photo can capture. We saw every one of the sunsets either from this spot, the beach or dinner at Toucan's one night (it's just down the road).

We actually cooked and ate most meals at the house and loved the fully equipped kitchen to do so. Usually, most of our car load is beach related items that George has for use at the house, this was a huge bonus.

The road that runs between the house and the beach wasn't at all noisy as I initially thought it might be, that was nice. My sons and I hope to return to Isle of View again and also for a Girls getaway. If you are looking for comfort and location at the beach and not really looking for anything more, this is your place.

We did take a few day trips as my sons are 12 and 14, there are many good options for this.

George was very accommodating and responsive to any questions we had before and during our trip.

Very, very nice

  • 4 of 5

The location of this cottage could not be better! The sunsets were gorgeous and the beach was right across the road. The layout of the cottage was very nice and comfortable! We are in every night and found the kitchen functional. The furniture definitely could be updated and modernized. We enjoyed every minute of the beach. Saw schools of sting-rays by the shoreline everyday. One man down the way caught a baby shark and another man caught 3 hammerhead sharks (they were migrating in the area) then released. Especially enjoyed the privacy of the beach and the cottage. Special memories!!!

Owner's Response: Jo Ann, Thank you for the nice response. Yes it is a million dollar view, and the people are so laid back and friendly there. I do have plans to renovate, update and upgrade the cottage this fall, after the big summer rush. You and your family are always welcome. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
