Why Ron and Yolie Strickland chose Kiska Beach
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.

best spot in panama city
We loved this cozy home. It was a perfect getaway for my husband and I. The beach was in walking distance and not crowded at all. We were able to go to 30A and the heart of Panama City Beach for restaurants but had a quiet place to stay and hang out on the beach. I highly recommend this house. Ron and Yoli were excellent with giving recommendations and showing us around at check in.
What a wonderful place to stay! Super cute, cozy and minutes walk to the beautiful beach. Ron was very welcoming, friending and even suggested a place for us to get married on the beach, which we did, and the gift from Yolie was very thoughtful. We will definitely be staying at the Banana Cabana next time we visit.
Cute and Cozy
This small cottage is only two blocks from the beach so it's perfect walking distance. The couple was great to work with and even had the cottage ready for a bit earlier check in where they even met us to show us everything and give us some info for never visiting the area before. They provided so many nice things for beach use also. This cottage has made a great first impression of visiting in Panama City and this will be our go to rental for any future visits.
Cozy and clean
Ron and Yolie were consummate hosts. The cottage had everything you would need for your stay, including soap, shampoo, dish soap, beach towels, paper products, beach toys, and a beach cart to roll everything down to the beach. The bed was very comfortable and the outside shower was also extremely convenient. The cottage is also within easy driving distance of Pier Park and Seaside for shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay very much
Great place to stay
the place was great. It was very clean and cozy. It wasn’t a very far walk to the beach either.
Clean and cozy close to the beach great for a couple
