About Gail Cowden

We are business owners who love to vacation and make memories with our family.

Gail Cowden purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Gail Cowden chose North West Florida

My husband and I have family who live in the Gulf Coast Panhandle. We have been vacationing here our whole lives and had a condo and business in Destin in the 90's. Most of our fondest memories are of family times on the beach. Our favorite activities other than chilling on the beach are going to the amusement parks, fishing, boating and of course eating great seafood!! In 2010 when we saw this cottage for sale we saw both short term and long term potential. Our goal when renovating the home was to keep the vintage character of this 1940's cottage. We are Always improving the cottage to make it comfortable for our guest. In 2012 we added the observation deck which has been a favorite with guests. Since purchasing this home we have fallen in love with PCB and its friendly, unpretentious locals and vacation home owners like ourselves!

Our love of the panhandle is so torn between Destin and Panama City Beach, that we decided to have the best of both worlds and acquired a condo in the heart of the Miramar Beach area of Destin in 2011. Then in 2012 we added two off the beach houses in Santa Rosa Beach, Fl. These VRBO rentals have far exceeded our expectations.

What makes this cottage unique

There is nothing like long walks on the beach any time of day or any season. From our cottage you can have sand in your toes in minutes. I fell so blessed to go to the end of my street and see ocean. It is truly inspiring. We love the fall and winter in PCB as much as the spring and summer. On the west end of PCB you are just minutes to so many other great water and dinining areas like St. Andrews Bay, Rosemary Beach, Grayton Beach, Destin and Seaside..

However we tend to spend most of our time and dollars eating at our favorite local spots like Dusty's, Mike's Diner and Oyster Bar, The Sand Bar next to Buddy's Seafood or the Back Porch at Pier Park so that we have more time to spend with family and each other.

Very cute,clean, and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It was very clean and really convenient to front beach road and back beach road. Short walk to the beach, which you can see from the house. We didn't want to leave. Another thing we really like is it had an outdoor shower. So we could easily rinse off before we entered back in the house after being at the beach. Fully stocked with everything you need in the kitchen. We just loved our stay. And we will be back.

Won't find better accommodations for the price!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the great little cottage at the end of April. It was perfect for our group of four. Such a cute little place with a screened in porch that was perfect for coffee on the day that it rained. For all of the other days, the upper deck with great gulf views was amazing. It has everything you need including laundry. The beach was 1 block away. Perfect location and perfect place for the price. Check in/out couldn't be easier. Very clean as well!

The stay at the cottage was amazing. It felt like home away from home. It was a couples trip and the cottage was decorated so lovely. Great location, walking distance from the beach, pier park, and other great restaurants. Will book again
