About Donna Brooks / Dana English

This is a family-owned home that we have enjoyed for many years. We are not able to visit as much as we would like so we decided to share our gem of a house with others wanting to visit the beautiful beaches of Panama City Beach

Donna Brooks / Dana English purchased this house in 1980

Why Donna Brooks / Dana English chose Panama City Beach

This is the best vacation home for families. It can sleep 6 comfortably and has a beautiful view of the Grand Lagoon.

What makes this house unique

The house is located diagonal to the boat ramp and pier on Dolphin Drive, perfect for fishing and boating. Ample boat parking both at the house and the vacant lot next door.

Awesome Little Cottage !

  • 4 of 5

Spent the weekend in PC for a car show. The location was perfect....the extra parking next door was accommodating and convenient. The boat ramp across the street offered entertainment when lounging on the deck. The house is spacious and offers everything you need for a nice, relaxing stay. Definitely will visit again.

Very nice, basic beach house

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this house on a long weekend dive trip in November. The house is very clean and in a great location. The only drawback is that access to the bathroom goes through the two bedrooms with queen beds, so the people in the room with twin beds run the risk of waking up the people in the other bedrooms to answer the call of nature at night. Not a big deal though, especially for four guys on a weekend getaway. Other than this minor quibble, the place is great and quite affordable. Highly recommended.

Comfortable and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at this beach house. We had someone autistic with us that was very comfortable here also. It felt like home away from home. We loved the porch area outside and the kids also enjoyed the boating dock by the house. Sleeping arrangements for the kids was very easy and they were very comfortable. The payment process was quick and easy. I would recommend this home for anyone. It was great for mine!

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our stay. It was a perfect place with a quite neighborhood with a nice quite porch to relax on after a long day. It's only a few blocks from the beach. The lagoon and boat ramp are just outside the driveway. It was a perfect location and house for us because we went down for scuba diving. I will stay there again in the future.

Fantastic Place

  • 4 of 5

This was my 2nd time staying at this property and it was fantastic. The house is in a good location, where you can find dining, shopping, or hit the beach. What makes the stay even better is the caretaker Don. Don is very helpful and willing to assist you with your needs. Thanks for letting us borrow your fishing poles Don.
