The Oleander Cottage is...

Located in the quiet Laguna Beach section of Panama City Beach, The Oleander Cottage is on the corner of Front Beach Rd. and Oleander Street. This is certainly one of the quietest, most family oriented neighborhoods you will find. This is the quiet West End of Panama City you have heard so much about. No getting in the car to go to the beach... it's across the street.

Worlds away from the hustle and bustle but only a few miles from everything you want to do and see. It's the perfect way to have a getaway and still enjoy all the new activities Panama City Beach now offers. The Carousel Grocery store and World FAMOUS Thomas Doughnuts are just down the street. Shop and eat where local families and guests have enjoyed for generations.

The NEW Pier Park is only a 4 miles away and we are only 3 miles from Hwy79 (which leads to our NEW International Airport). Frank Brown park is 3 miles away. Winn Dixie & Publix Grocery stores are close in either direction. Local Restaurants from Fresh Seafood & Oysters to BBQ only minutes away. It's truly the Best of Both Worlds! ... Relaxed but Close enough to everything you and your family want to do and see.

Why David Sample - Must Be 25+ to Rent - Families Only - No Student Only Trips chose Laguna Beach

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Right across from a beach entrance. This worked out great for the event we came down to in Panama City Beach. The owners are really professional and extremely nice. We loved all the little notes that helped to keep us from calling the owners for silly little things like getting the tv and cable on the right channel to work. The place has a warm friendly feeling to it. I doubt we will ever stay in a hotel again in PCB.

Perfect family gataway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect! The place was right on the beach. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. Location of the hotel is very close to everything in Palm City Beach area. It is a bit out of the way which is excellent to a quieter environment. The owners are super nice and always available if you need anything. I would recommend this time and time again!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was absolutely perfect. My boys loved the fresh scones that were waiting for us upon our arrival. Lisa was extremely hospitable and generous. I can't wait for my students to see all of the sea shells that you donated to my beach themed classroom. The beach toys, chairs, and umbrella helped us lighten our travel load. This family of four will definitely be staying in PCB with the Samples next year. Thanks again!!!

Calm & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have never been to Panama City before and decided to stay at this cottage. I must say it was perfect for the two of us and everything you need was exactly right there. You walk out the front door and the board walk is a mere 20 steps and you are on your way to the beach. Just hearing the waves at night was good for me. I would definitely use them again and we plan to. I didn't want to stay some place where there are so many people on the beach you can't move. This is not that way. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Our stay at this cottage was great.

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived and went in the cottage it felt like home. It was very comfortable and the bed was great on our backs. The cottage has everything you could need to spend time here. We only ate out one time the whole week we were there. It was nice to just come in from shelling all day and relax. A very cozy porch to set on too. The owners Lisa and Dave were like family. If we needed something I just called or texted her and she was happy to answer any questions we had. You won't go wrong choosing this great cottage.
