Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Laguna Beach Estates - 3 Separate Units sleeps 2-14

Only Steps From The Beach: Duplex with separate studio accommodations

Relax and unwind just a few steps away from the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our cottage is located in Laguna Beach, on the quiet west end of Panama City Beach. This duplex cottage, with separate guest house, is located directly across from the beach in an old residential area that gives you an idea of what the beach was like before all of the big high rise condos. Laguna Beach is home to many long-time residents and out of respect, we only rent to families with a minimum age requirement of 25. Though we appreciate your interest, there are no exceptions to this policy.

The property consists of a main duplex cottage plus a guest house. The duplex is divided into two separate 2-bedroom rental units which can sleep up to 6 each. The guest house, just steps behind the main cottage, is a one bedroom home, which can also sleep up to 6. The property offers 3 separate rental units that may be rented individually or in combination with the others allowing for a multiple family vacation or larger groups providing accommodations for up to 18 guests.

The price on this site is for the rental of one of the 2 bedroom units. There is additional cost if you need to rent more than one of the units. The one bedroom unit is approximately $150 less.

Each unit has a full kitchen, bathroom, and living area with queen-size sleeper sofa. The main cottage is a duplex with 2 bedrooms (1 queen/1 full) in each unit. The guest house, just a few steps behind the main cottage, has 1 queen bedroom with a bunkroom with 2 single beds ideal for 2 children. That's a total of 5 bedrooms, 1 bunkroom w/ 2 beds and 3 sleeper sofas and 3 bathrooms for the entire property. The layout allows you to customize your accommodations from 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 bedrooms.

Amenities include flat screen TV's with satellite in each living area, Wi-Fi internet access, full kitchen with basic dishes and cooking utensils, wash room with a shared full-size washer and dryer, charcoal grill, and an outside shower to rinse off after that fun day at the beach.

Our cottage is conveniently located about 4 miles west of Pier Park. Thomas' donuts and the local Carousel grocery store is an easy 2-minute drive. A new Wal-Mart, Winn-Dixie and Publix grocery stores are also close by. Restaurants to suit any taste are in close proximity. Panama City Beach has lots of fun attractions like Shipwreck Island water park, Gulf World, Wonder Works, Ripley's, snorkeling, parasailing, go-carts, putt-putt golf and lots more for your family to enjoy. There are also two state parks within a few minutes’ drive.

The Frank Brown Baseball/Softball Complex is only 4 miles away and Laguna Beach Christian Retreat is less than 1/2 mile from the property.

Why John French chose Laguna Beach

As children we vacationed here with our families and have always wanted to own a vacation home in Panama City. We were hooked on this property the first time we saw it. We loved the classic look and feel of the home and the fact that it is directly across the street from a public beach access walkway made this the perfect choice for us.

What makes this cottage unique

Did I say this property is directly across from the beach? Our cottage is located in an old residential beach area so you don't have the crowds that come with the large condos, however we are a 5 minute drive from Pier Park, the hottest new area in PC with shopping, restaurants, a movie theater, amusement rides, live entertainment, and of course the huge County pier for those who like to fish.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for us. It has everything you need for a couple - plus an extra bedroom for all the luggage :)

The walkway to the beach is right across from the cottage - again, perfect!

The beach was not crowded at our area either.

We loved every minute!

Great home for small families!

  • 4 of 5

The location is perfect as it is right across from the beach, but not too close to the resorts to be overcrowded. The kitchen is very nice with everything you need. A flat screen with satellite and dvd player is included. The laundry room is shared, but worked great. The house was quiet with no noise from the other unit. Our family of 5 with little one's was very comfortable in the left side of the duplex.

The only downside was that the front parking area gets wet and is not paved which could be a bit messy if headed out to dinner or something, but not a big deal.

Great communication from the owners and overall a great value!

Great Family Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation was great. It was clean and relaxing. Location was great for the beach it was not overcrowded. Close enough to shopping and restaurants without being caught up in the middle of all the tourist. I would definitely recommend for a family vacation.

Fantastic Family Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in John's duplex and single home for a week with 8 adults and 8 children and had a fantastic time! There was plenty of room for all and even a big enough backyard area for a few family meals that we had. The quick trip to the beach access across the street was great to have and made it very easy to hit the beach without much of an effort! The location is fantastic, still in the PCB area, but a little out of the hustle and bustle of the main strip.

First time, and will certainly not be the last!

  • 5 of 5

Being as far west of the large condo areas made choosing this beach house a no brainier!

Walk out the door, cross the street ( not 1/10th the traffic! ), and you are on the boardwalk to beautiful white sand and emerald water. We stayed on the right side facing the house - the enclosed outdoor shower on this side gave us a HUGE advantage on getting cleaned up after a day at the beach.

Staying here makes going back to the big condos a thing of the past!

Thank you Jon and Kym! Great owners to deal with - any questions we had were answered promptly and they made checking in/out very simple.
