Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Loved this quaint house. It is within perfect walking distance to the beach AND on a quiet street.

Thrilled that we stumbled upon this location. I will definitely be back.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this cottage. It was very convenient to the beach and had a very nice beach access walkway. We felt secluded from the craziness of Panama City so that it was more peaceful, but close enough to enjoy good restaurants and shopping. The house was adorable and fit what we needed. Would definitely go back again.

Great Customers Service

  • 5 of 5

I would like to say that I love that the house was literally a 3 min walk to the beach. Very convenient! The customer service was very excellent. The property managers stopped by to make sure we had everything. I texted the owner about the WiFi pass code which could of been easy answered with a text. With in 3 mins the property manager drove up and made sure we were online. My son had a great Birthday, cant wait to rent this place again.

Very accomidating little getaway

  • 4 of 5

We found this place for a short stay on a spontaneous jaunt to FL from MI... with six kids. Although the structure is old and the bathrooms are small it was more than accommodating. Three bedrooms and two (basically) living rooms, along with plenty of room to move in the kitchen gave the cottage a very spacious feel. There was even a brand new grill on the front porch.

I do think the price was a bit steep ($300/night plus $100 cleaning fee and taxes, hence my 4-star rating) but the location and last minute planning made that sort of an expectation for our trip.

The neighborhood was quiet, the cottage was clean and stocked with all the basics and then some (coffee, bottled water, towels, soap...even laundry soap for the washer,) the owner and manager both communicated well, and we were only a few minutes away from all kinds of attractions.

I would definitely recommend this property. We completely enjoyed it.

Loved the beach, would not stay in this rental again.

  • 2 of 5

The rental looked like the pictures except when we arrived it was not even ready for us to check in. The cleaning crew doesn't do a good job cleaning at all. We found old chocolate chip cookies in the one room on the floor, there was cob webs and dust almost in every corner, the drain in the one shower was broke and slid off anytime you stepped on it and the bathrooms smelled like old dirty locker rooms that had not been cleaned. The A/C did not seem to work the way it should have worked, the gas grill outside was a joke. It is so small you can barely cook on it and there were no utensils to use with it, we had to have the house manager replace the propane tank and the grill blew up twice while cooking on it. Also, it didn't help that we had to contact the police to report someone stealing one of our coolers off the front porch!! We understand that it is an older cottage but it could have been A LOT cleaner than what it was. The area was great with easy access to the beach and surrounding activities for all in the group to participate in. We will come back for another vacation in Panama City Beach but we will find stay at a different location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Needless to say, based on our previous reviews, we were quite surprised by your comments. Of course an over site on cleaning is always a possibility but not common. We've made sure to give the home a deep cleaning and checked all items on your list. We certainly are hopeful that your comments were not in response to our asking several times for you to not park in our yard on the grass…as I'm sure you can appreciate, we care about our yards as much as our homes and our request was only for the good of the street, our neighbors and our next guests.
