Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Sunnyside On The Gulf - Shore Thang

Relaxing Beach Cottage, Great Views Of The Ocean And Sunsets

Our little piece of paradise “Shore Thang”, is located on Front Beach Road directly across from the private, Sunnyside Beach! No need to take a car to the beach, as it is so close you can walk back to the house to refill your drink! The house is a three bedroom, two bath, 1150Sf home with a 400 Sf deck overlooking the beautiful emerald colors of the Gulf of Mexico. You can view amazing sunsets as well as fireworks from Pier Park, which is located only a couple of miles away.

Our home, recently renovated, including all stainless steel appliances including a full-size fridge, range, microwave, dishwasher, Built in Ice Maker and three zone wine/beverage fridge. Sherwin Williams paint colors and wood ceilings provide a warm and inviting beachy feeling. It is the perfect place to relax when winding down after a day at the beach! We have all new bedding including Simmons Beauty Rest mattresses in both the Master and Guest Bedroom. It also has all the features of home, including a coffee maker, blender, filtered water, filtered ice and a washer & dryer.

This home has three full bedrooms (no bunk beds built into a hallway like some condos), with a King in the Master, Queen in the first guest room and a bunk bed in the second guest room. It also has a pull out couch. With the open floor plan, you are never away from your guests while cooking dinner or fixing a quick lunch between beach trips. It also has a private, fully fenced and gated backyard with a gas grill that is available for you to use.

We have free, wireless highspeed internet (Comcast) available for your use.

The home does come with a couple of toys for our guests including two paddle boards and two sea kayaks . These are available for our guests at no extra charge, all that is ask is you treat them as your own and put them back when finished.

The home has two bathrooms, including a large walk in shower in the master and a full bathtub with detachable sprayer in the guest bedroom. We also have an outdoor shower to wash everything off after a day at the beach.

The private backyard is fenced in with a small amount of grass perfect for small dogs to enjoy.

Location, Location, Location! No need to pack up the car to head to the beach. Use our provided beach cart and walk across the street. You are only a short drive to some of the best attractions Panama City Beach has to offer, but far enough away from the crowds and congestion.

About Steven Morales

We fell in love with Panama City Beach years ago and decided we wanted something on the quiet, west end. We want this home to feel like a home away from home! We live in Atlanta and try and make it down to the beach as much as possible, so many of the days blocked off will be us enjoying this home as well as opening it up to other guests.

Steven Morales purchased this house in 2013

Why Steven Morales chose Sunnyside

You cant beat the location! This home is on a private beach, so its like you pretty much have the place to yourself. The large deck overlooking the gulf with zero obstructions. It was like beach front property with out the high price. It is also located on the much quieter west end of the beach, but still close to all the amenities. The walk to beach is literally two minutes!

Perfect Stay at Shore Thang!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at Shore Thang! We have always stayed at the 2 nearest hotels, but this time we traveled with our dog and needed a house to accommodate our needs. This house has everything you could want and more! The kitchen had everything you could ever need (and then some) and the shed was FULL of beach supplies. It's a perfect house for those that prefer to spend their beach vacation at the beach. The private beach is super quiet and relaxing, no need to fight for the perfect beach spot. Staying here was so easy, and Steven was awesome at communicating with us!

We love this end of the beach because it is quiet and close to grocery stores and our favorite restaurant, Bayou Bill's (seriously people, eat there... it is better than any gimmicky restaurant you will find in PCB). It is also a short drive to Pier Park and other more touristy attractions.

The only warning I have is watch out for the beach burrs (not sure what they are actually called but this is what we came up with!). Having stayed beach side for all of our previous trips, we have never had to walk through the beach brush before. There are tiny sticky barbs in there that hurt when you step on them! They attach to your clothes and shoes and if you bring them into the house they get stuck in the rugs too! We were all a little surprised by them, but it didn't dampen our trip. Just be careful!

We will be staying here for all of our future PCB vacations! Thanks Steven for providing an awesome house at the best place in the world!

This is the second summer we have stayed in this house. The house is fresh and open. The owner is quick to respond to any concerns and made sure we were satisfied. Great beach and great owner to rent from.

Great value, location, and size

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at " Shore Thang" the first week of August. While our stay was not perfect ( what really is) the weather was terrible and we could not swim in the ocean most of the stay, we made good use of the house and its many amenities. The en suite bath was great but not so private as that was everyone's favorite shower. We went to pier park and went fishing off of the pier one day. I was not very impressed with Pier park, I pictured more games and activities, not just an outdoor mall. Gulf World was awesome, we went there on a rainy day. Its in-door/out-door set up allowed for us to enjoy our whole day there. ( went to " The All American Diner for a quick bite...DONT DO IT) Sharkey's and Panama Pizza had the best food. Thomas' for donuts and ice cream. Just an all around great location. If we wanted to be bothered with other people we went to Panama, if not we stayed in Sunnyside. The neighbors were fairly quite. The shower on the side of the house was a real life saver with all the sand and 2 very messy boys. We cannot wait to go again! We will be definatly staying at " Shore Thang" again. Steve was also great with contacting us before and after our stay. Anything we needed he was right on it.

Nice home at atmosphere with great beach access.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here. The beach was perfect and quiet. Most days we were practically by ourselves. With the few issues we had once we got there Steven was quick to get them taken care of and we apreciated that. Having the grill was nice and the home was very convenient to Winn Dixie for groc aswell as all the amenities PCB has to offer.

We are located less then five miles from Pier Park, which is a short and scenic drive down Front Beach Road. Pier Park offers several restaurants as well as a dog friendly beach and large pier. We are also a very short drive to Rosemary Beach, and our favorite restaurant, Red Bar in Grayton Beach. We have both a Publix and Win-Dixie less then two miles away. You can also make the short drive down to St. Andrews Bay, for world class snorkeling and activities. Since we are located on the quite, west end of the beaches, it is a much more laid back atmosphere. The community of Sunnyside is a 100% private beach, only open to the residents and guest of Sunnyside. You can actually enjoy your time at the beach since it is a short walk from the house. No need to drive to the beach as it is right outside our doorstep. Cross the road and a short path takes you to the expansive, undeveloped wide sandy beach. We love visiting Dusty’s Oyster Bar, Mikes Oyster Bar and Shuckums, all of which are a very short drive. For breakfast and lunch, Thomas Donuts is a little over a mile way, for some of the best donuts in Florida!
