A quite little cottage in the cove.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was delightful. You are one block off the bay so watching the beautiful sunsets are do easy. The location to the heart of Panama City is just great- you can walk to downtown, St. Andrews and more. I would stay again in a heartbeat.

Walking distance to Shops and Restaurants

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were lucky to find this Gem on VRBO, It was just what we were looking for. Don't let the exterior of this house fool you. The interior had a complete make over top to bottom and Elyse did a fabulous job decorating with an elegant but beachy flare. Great internet service, TV, water pressure, appliances and furnishings. Awesome - All in All it was great experience. We will be back.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cove Guest House for five days in late October. We have relatives that live within a few blocks , so this was the perfect place to be! The house is great for two people. The neighborhood is very quiet and within walking distance to see sunsets on St Andrew's Bay. Elyse supplied us with coffee, yogurt, granola and fresh fruit. We would highly recommend this place to stay.

Great rental for two

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Cove Cottage for a long weekend. We have lots of family in the area and usually stay with them but we needed a place where we could both work and relax without lots of interruptions. The cottage is beautifully decorated and comes complete with just about anything you would need. The size was perfect for the two of us. The location is fantastic. It is in the heart of the Cove and not far from any where or any of our family. Did I mention that it was very clean - a major plus for us. We even took advantage of the bicycles available at the cottage. It had been years since I had ridden a bike and we had a blast riding around the Cove. We really enjoyed the cottage and look forward to staying there again. Thank you Elyse for making it a very pleasant stay!!

Just perfect - great host and adorable house!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at this adorable house Memorial Day weekend an we couldn't have been happier with our experience. Elyse was a treat to work with and she has done an amazing job with the place. It is such a cute and quaint little place that is perfect for a weekend away. I highly recommend staying at this place!

Clean, comfortable and beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Cove Cottage for five weeks during June – July 2016. I wanted to be near my daughter and son-in-law, for the birth of my first grandchild. This was one of the best decisions that I have ever made!

The cottage is extremely clean and beautifully decorated, with tall ceilings and large windows. I am slightly germ phobic and do not like to stay in hotel rooms. However, I felt completely comfortable in the cottage (clean and calm). The kitchen is stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, pans, coffee maker, microwave, etc... I just needed to buy food to prepare for meals. I saved money by not eating all my meals in restaurants.

The bed is the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept on. I am planning on buying the same brand and model of mattress when I get home! The central air conditioning, hot water (shower), cable and internet exceeded my expectations.

I felt safe in the neighborhood. I was able to walk to a few local restaurants. A real treat was walking a block to see the sunset over the cove.

The owners have the gift of hospitality. They checked in with me often to find out if I needed anything. They even gave us a meal, after my grandchild was born. Very sweet and thoughtful people! I loved living at the cove cottage for five weeks and wished I could stay year-round. I definitely plan to stay at the cove cottage again, in the future.
