About Denise Marie Smith

I have been renting property to guests in Panama City Beach for the last 24 years. I am well known in this area for doing so and have a very dependable, reliable reputation. You can have confidence I will do my very best to ensure your vacation is superb! References gladly provided so please ask!

Denise Marie Smith purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Denise Marie Smith chose World

Love the vintage 1940's neighborhood! One of the very last beaches where the beach front property is dedicated to the homeowners so there will never be ANY high rise buildings built on the beach! NEVER!

What makes this cottage unique

Cottage offers total comfort of complete 2017 renovation but with 1940's charm maintained. Completely private yard, fire pit, and a one minute walk to pristine Laguna Beach. This cottage is one of a kind in our area! Please read the cottage reviews!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Denise,



I can't even describe how wonderful our trip was to your Hideaway Cottage. I apologize for not responding sooner. I got back to business and of course, it was as expected, a mess!



Your cottage and hospitality was delightful! Everything from decor to convenience was perfect! The weather and water couldn't have been better and the comfort of the cottage was so hard to leave.



Thank you so much ... you helped make our getaway a delightful trip! We do plan on returning, hopefully for a full week next year!

Highy recommended.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to the Gulf Coast for over 30 years and we've been visiting the Laguna Beach area regularly for the past 12 years staying with friends. We've admired the cottage from a distance and finally had an opportunity to stay there recently. Impressive, artifully designed, and beautifully decorated are the best ways to describe it. Also, the location was great. It was a very short walk to the beach, and walking distance to Thomas Donuts and the Carousel Grocery. It was truely a relaxing and wonderful weekend and we absolutely loved every part of it.This was the first time I can recall that as we were leaving my wife looked over and said, "that was fun, thanks".

Great for couples getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property for a few nights this past July. It is perfect for parents looking for a long weekend or short vacation away from the kids. The beach is a very short walk from the house and given the location, was not crowded. We usually stay in a condo with the family so it nice to be able to walk up to the house, use the garden hose to clean off all the sand and leave the cooler, towels, etc out on the porch. I love having a grill as an option for cooking dinner which you don't get at a condo. Gas stations and grocery stores are very close and it's only a few minutes away from Pier Park. All in all, I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Charming and romantic!

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage is a priceless find for couples who want the old Florida beach experience. Exceptionally clean, equipped with all of the comforts of home and then some. We loved the fire pit, private beach and riding our bikes to Pier Park and Carousel. Will be back, hopefully many times. Thank you Denise and Sherry for outstanding property management.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing little hidden cottage! We were so impressed with everything from the space, the modern amenities, the decor, the out door living space and especially the customer service from Denise! She checked in on us a time or two just to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. She even recommended the best restaurant open during the off season which was perfect! We can't wait to stay again! Thank you thank you thank you!

Gorgeous, modern and private! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Hideaway Cottage for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect! Exactly what we were looking for, the cottage provided a quiet and restful haven in a gorgeous setting. It has all of the modern amenities paired with cozy cottage comfort. The screened porch was where we spent most evenings, listening to the frogs and crickets. It was an absolute joy cooking in the kitchen and the outdoor grill was perfect for our fresh fish. The beach is just a few doors down, with white soft sand and clear blue water. There were turtles hatching right next to the beach access while we were there! Thomas Donut Shop is also just a few doors down...YUM! Denise was such an amazing host, beyond helpful and accommodating. We will definitely return!
