Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Riviera Beach - Coral Cottage By The Gulf

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom (Sleeps 8) -- Just A Short Walk To The Beach.

NEWLY UPDATED -- Back patio painted, wooden walkway/deck freshly stained, and Adirondack seating added (see photos). Also upgraded the kitchen with new granite counter tops.

When you come to Panama City Beach, Florida, you’re looking for a relaxing vacation, time in the sun, and cherished memories with family and friends.

Located on the family-friendly west end of Panama City Beach, in the desirable 'Sunnyside' community, Coral Cottage by the Gulf is located just a leisurely stroll away (3 short blocks) from the beautiful sugar white sands of Panama City Beach’s Emerald Coast (Ranked the 20th Best Beach in the United States -- 2014 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards). Our vacation home is located just off Highway 30, or Front Beach Road as it is commonly called – with its low traffic and low noise, but lots of fun, and absolutely perfect for watching sunsets, shelling, and enjoying quiet walks on the beach.

Coral Cottage by the Gulf is a 2Br/2Ba beach bungalow that has been furnished with those special extras that will make your vacation more relaxing. The 50” LCD Flat Screen TV in the Living Room will allow you to catch the game or watch a movie. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need, whether you just want to brew an excellent cup of coffee to enjoy on the screened-in front porch or the backyard patio or prepare a full meal for everyone in the house. The Master Bedroom features a Queen-sized bed and a private bathroom. The Second Bedroom has a Queen-sized bed with the guest bathroom just outside the door. There is also a Queen Sleeper Sofa in the Living Room. The Laundry Room features a full size washer and dryer.

About Wayne Bentley & Audrey Iracane

When we first visited Panama City Beach, we fell in love with the beauty that is the Emerald Coast, so much so that we purchased our very own piece of heaven on the Gulf. We know you’ll fall in love with it too. We take great pride in our Coral Cottage by the Gulf in offering an immaculate, well-stocked and comfortable home for you to enjoy, relax, and hopefully return to again and again!

Why Wayne Bentley & Audrey Iracane chose Sunnyside

This area of Panama City Beach is so quaint, laid back, and beautiful, we knew within one week of being here that this is where we wanted to spend a lot more time. It's not just the sugar white sandy beaches or the clear emerald green water, it's the people, the food, and the feeling of getting away from it all. It's unlike anywhere else (in Florida, anyway) and it really is like paradise.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is in a great neighborhood, full of single family private homes, each on a nice-sized lot on a quiet street. There aren't many neighborhoods better! And when we found this little gem, we knew it was the one! It makes for a comfortable, cozy home away from home. Just lovely…

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice cozy cottage within walking distance of the beach. Stocked very well if you forget something. Owner communication was excellent when asking questions before renting. Very enjoyable stay.

Very nice home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at coral cottage, it's a very nice and accessible home. Everything we needed to go to the beach was available. Chairs, umbrellas, a cart to carry everything, and much more. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a home way from home.. The house was also stocked with just about anything you needed. A very nice home, I would definitely come back. Thank you Wayne and Audrey.

Great week at Coral Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week staying at the Coral Cottage. It was nicely furnished. Very clean. Beds were comfortable. The décor was quite interesting. The back yard looked very inviting and would be perfect for cooking out. We ate out all but one night so did not try it out. It was nice to know we could use stuff in the refrigerator and pantry if we needed. Bicycles were fun for the younger ones. We are going to keep the VRBO # for future rentals.

The house is just as it is described. It is a few short blocks from the beach and on the quieter side of the beach. The owners have the cabinets stocked with any and everything you may have forgotten. They had razors, tooth paste, shampoo etc. The beds were super comfortable and the bedrooms had ceiling fans. The shed out back had a beach cart for you to walk your things to the beach. They also provided beach chairs, bikes, boogie boards and sand toys. I can not say enough good things about this place. The owners go above and beyond making their home a comfortable stay for you. If we are ever in the area again, I would definitely stay at the Corral Cottage again. If you book here you will not be disappointed.
