About the property

3 Bedroom/3 Bath Private Beach House Directly On The Gulf Of Mexico!

Are you looking for the sweetest beach house on Panama City Beach? Look no further! The Jackson Cottage is a family beach home that has been enjoyed and passed down for several generations. This lovely home has been completely renovated, yet maintains its vintage charm and character. As you enter this home, you will be blown away by the owner's choice of upscale coastal decor! You will fall in love with the many vintage touches which make you feel like you have stepped back in time. You will Imagine yourself visiting this home in the 1940's when Panama City Beach was nothing but sugar white sand dunes and stunning turquoise water! This is one of the first beach homes ever built on Panama City Beach. The owner has taken great care to maintain the original pine wood shiplap paneled walls, yet has modernized the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and all living spaces in 2015. If you love Southern Living, you will feel right at home in this adorable beach house. The furnishings in this home are refreshing & comfortable and perfect for a large group of family & friends. The living room has large over-sized picture windows for glorious views of the beach and the sunset! You will find that most of your time here will be spent on the large covered veranda or atop the observation deck for even more panoramic views of the beach. There is a wooden boardwalk through the sand dune for easy access to the sand, and an outdoor shower for when you return from a fun day in the salty sea! The beach front here is far less crowded than other areas and guests love that they can park at their front door. No elevators or parking garages to hassle with! This home is very well equipped with all kitchen utensils, bed and bath linens, and even has a washer & dryer for your use. The master bedroom has an adjoining master bathroom with jetted tub and sleeps up to 4 in a Queen size bed plus two twin size beds. The second bedroom sleeps 2 in a Queen size bed. The third bedroom sleeps 4 in two identical sets of bunk beds. There is also a futon available. There are two additional bathrooms both with walk in shower, toilet and sink/vanity. The spacious living area has ample seating and is very cozy and comfortable. The over-sized dining table has large benches for seating and is also in the main living area. The living area has a door that leads you to your own private veranda which has a wonderful wooden swing and plenty of furniture for relaxing the day away! This beach home is a very special place, and we are very excited to share it with guests who will appreciate its sentimental and historic value. This home is full of wonderful memories and we want each and every guest who visits here to create their own!

This is a lovely, one of a kind beach home, and We welcome guests who will enjoy & respect it like it is their own! We feel that a private beach house experience is much more relaxing than renting in a large complex where you spend a lot of time looking for parking or waiting in line for elevators & beach chairs. This home does not offer pools or amenities like other large complexes but there is something to be said about parking at your door, enjoying the sunset from your private veranda & having the white sand beach at your feet as soon as you are ready to enjoy it! The views from this home are amazing & the beach is pristine. Long Beach has some of the most beautiful natural sand dunes on Panama City Beach! We hope you enjoy browsing the web site & we certainly welcome you to call with any questions or special requests! This home is centrally located & would be a great place for those attending weddings or events at The Boardwalk, Shores of Panama, or Pineapple Willy's.

Simple Amazing - Look no further!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further - you come to the beach to be on the beach well... the beach is mere steps away. The convenience to the beach was a bit hit for our group and the house was just what we needed. Plenty of room to spread out and we enjoyed the home feel. Much better than staying at a confined condo. There is a public access beside the house but there wasn't much traffic on it. More of the locals. The beach wasn't crowed around us, but on either side down some in front of the condo's it was stacked with people. The whole area around the house was clean and inside was as well. The beds were comfortable. Kitchen had everything we could ask for. The plus for the house was it had three bathrooms all with showers and plenty of towels. We didn't use the washer and dryer but would have been a perk if we had stayed just a little bit longer. If we come back to this side of Florida this will be the place we stay again! Thanks for renting, we enjoyed every minute and wished for more!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay! There were 10 of us & we had plenty of room. Great view, right on the beach & even though it was Spring Break our part of the beach was not crowded at all. We brought our own beach toys but there are lots of toys already at the house. Also, all of our questions leading up to our stay were answered quickly.

A great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at the Jackson Cottage in PCB! The house was very comfortable for our group of teenage daughters & moms. The beds, linens and furnishings were really comfortable; AC worked great. The house is cuter than the pictures show. Plenty of seating in living & dining areas. Being right on the beach was amazing & having an outdoor shower was a favorite of ours. Location felt safe and since it is near other houses, the beach didn't get overly crowded right in front of the house. Jodie was super nice to work with & responded quickly to an onsite repair. Thanks for a week of great beach memories :)

The property was easy to find, and ample parking. The multiple sleeping options was a huge plus! The beach access was right there, and minimal traffic from the public access boardwalk! Super close to shopping, restaurants and things to do! Everything you need is right there. Great place to stay in PCB, perfect for families or groups! We had a great week there!

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

This house met and exceeded our expectations! We spent seven beautiful days in this home with another family and there was room for everyone! The biggest factor for us in choosing this home was the proximity to the beach. It was wonderful being able to walk off the back porch and onto the beach. The rooftop deck provided an amazing sunset view and was a great spot to gather, watch the moon dance off the water and re-live the adventures of the day. The house was well furnished with games, beach toys, cooking utensils and more! The kids enjoyed swinging on the swing and using the outside shower.

Another plus, that we didn't realize until we arrived, was how close the house is to everything. Walmart is a few minutes away, Pineapple Willy's is within in walking distance and it is the perfect location to see some good scenery on a morning run!

Lastly, Jodie was wonderful to work with. She was extremely responsive to our needs and quickly responded to any requests we had. We are looking forward to returning next summer!! Gig'Em!
