Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Welcome to 'Longue-Vue by the Sea', a seaside setting on the quiet end of beautiful Panama City Beach in quaint 'Laguna Beach, est. 1936'... directly across Front Beach Road (50 steps, see PICTURES) from the warm Gulf of Mexico and magnificent sunsets!

I've taken great pride in the private yard and gardens. Sit on the patio or deck and read a book. I have tables, beach chairs, gas grill and floats here for your use. If you can't find it, just ask, I try my best to make your stay as comfortable as possible.



Option: 1. The first floor 'Garden House' features two bedrooms, kitchen, living room w/ 40'LCD TV and bath.

Option: 2. The second floor 'Carriage House' features one bedroom w/king bed, living room (w/sleeper sofa) with dining area and kitchen.


I'm located just minutes from the all new 'Pier Park' (1,500,000 sf. of retail plus 16 screen theater, and more!) and 'Seaside & Watercolors'. The kids will love 'Shipwreck Island Water Park', that is located just ten minutes to the east of us. I know you'll enjoy the homey atmosphere I've lovingly created! Give me a call... You won't be disappointed!

Your host,

George Hans

About George Hans

I moved to Laguna Beach, FL (Panama City Beach) after spending 51 cold winters in upstate NY. I purchased this place with a partner as a older 2 family home. At the time, we worked real hard cleaning and putting in new kitchen and bath in the Garden House. I was sure there would be no need for a garage until 2 months later, my Jeep was 106 on the inside. My partners Dad came over to help me lay out a garage. He asked me 'how I was going to pay for the building?' He was always thinking ahead, so he explained, if we put a rental over the garage, it would pay for itself. In July 2000 the Carriage House opened!

My partner retired 8 years ago after 25 years in the guest business...she was a great inspiration in the birth of ''Longue-Vue by the Sea''.

George Hans purchased this cottage in 1998

Why George Hans chose Laguna Beach

It was plain and simple, I had never been to the panhandle before, but once I saw the family friendly area and beaches, it didn't take me long to move here...Laguna Beach is a collection of 1950's and newer beach homes. If you're looking for a 23 story condo, you are in the Wrong Area! We are surrounded by quaint rentals in 'Wisteria Corners' just 50 steps to the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

I have the unique situation, where as I live on property (in my own unit) with my guests. It's like living in a Bed & Breakfast (without breakfast). This is a 1950's beach cottage, I have gardens and grilling areas, covered porches and patios and everything but a 23 story elevator that takes 20 minutes to arrive! Thank you for reading this, your host, George

There were four adults that stayed in the Carriage House. It was fantastic. The unit is just as described, and you couldn't ask for a better host than George. He's the best. I look forward to going back.

Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family (me, my hubby, two little ones, and one baby) all stayed in the Carriage house. Its a cute little unit and the kitchen makes it perfect for those who like to cook- George even had an outdoor grill and patio area for everyone to use. He was very accommodating in every way and very funny. We enjoyed talking with him- especially during laundry time!

Every day we crossed the street (which was surprisingly not too busy) and set up to spend the day on the beach- where we did and saw everything we could have wanted to!! When it rained we weren't too far from indoor attractions, either. I think we got quite a bargain for our location, especially considering Laguna Beach is not over-crowded like other beaches.

I'm hoping we can return in the near future!

Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House was absolutely perfect for my husband and I, and we had 7 awesome days of staying in a home away from home. We stayed in the Garden House last year,which was beautuful and had plenty of room. The upstairs Carriage House is exactly like the photos, clean, quiet & had everything we needed. Geroge was great, and you wouldn't even know he is around, but he is there if you need him. The beach was georgeous, as always, the water was so many shades of blue and so clear. If you are looking for a place to stay, I highly recommend staying here, IF HE HAS AN OPENING, grab it quick!!!! The walk across the street to the beach is not an issue, as it takes less time then waiting for elevators. We will definitely stay here again, and again :) Thank you George for taking such pride and care of your properties and we hope to see you again soon!

A Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a week in "The Carriage House". George was a fabulous host- welcoming and friendly. The moments he spent upon our arrival with tips for places to eat and visit was beyond helpful. Everything was in terrific condition- clean, a well equipped kitchen, and homey. It was nice to have beach chairs, floats, and sand toys available to use. The ocean view from the deck was great, and we loved using the gas grill for dinner. The lawn and courtyard is meticulously kept and groomed. We will definitely be back!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed in George's 2 bedroom downstairs unit and we couldn't have been more pleased. George is a great host who goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is exactly what you need. This property is literally just steps away from the public beach access and we love this end of the beach. Residential without the big crowds. If you are looking for someplace affordable that is very clean and inviting then look no further. We will be back!
