It was just as pictured

  • 5 of 5

This house was such a short walk to the beach and had mostly everything we needed. The area was perfect, a short drive to anything you would need. The beach was beautiful! It was so hard to leave this place! Plenty of room for everyone, we actually wished we would have booked it longer!

Spacious and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great beach access just a very short walk away from house. House was clean and had lots of space to be a cottage. Plenty of hot water even with six people showering right after each other! Well stocked with toilet paper and paper towels. No complaints!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this cottage. It was very convenient to the beach and had a very nice beach access walkway. We felt secluded from the craziness of Panama City so that it was more peaceful, but close enough to enjoy good restaurants and shopping. The house was adorable and fit what we needed. Would definitely go back again.

Great Customers Service

  • 5 of 5

I would like to say that I love that the house was literally a 3 min walk to the beach. Very convenient! The customer service was very excellent. The property managers stopped by to make sure we had everything. I texted the owner about the WiFi pass code which could of been easy answered with a text. With in 3 mins the property manager drove up and made sure we were online. My son had a great Birthday, cant wait to rent this place again.

Very accomidating little getaway

  • 4 of 5

We found this place for a short stay on a spontaneous jaunt to FL from MI... with six kids. Although the structure is old and the bathrooms are small it was more than accommodating. Three bedrooms and two (basically) living rooms, along with plenty of room to move in the kitchen gave the cottage a very spacious feel. There was even a brand new grill on the front porch.

I do think the price was a bit steep ($300/night plus $100 cleaning fee and taxes, hence my 4-star rating) but the location and last minute planning made that sort of an expectation for our trip.

The neighborhood was quiet, the cottage was clean and stocked with all the basics and then some (coffee, bottled water, towels, soap...even laundry soap for the washer,) the owner and manager both communicated well, and we were only a few minutes away from all kinds of attractions.

I would definitely recommend this property. We completely enjoyed it.
