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!

Wayne Bentley & Audrey Iracane purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Wayne Bentley & Audrey Iracane chose Riviera Beach

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…

You won't be sorry

  • 5 of 5

I really hope Coral Cottage is available when you visit the area. You won't be sorry. It is comfortable and well furnished. It sits in a quiet neighborhood and close to the Gulf. If you happen to forget anything, the owners have it available. You will find they have anticipated your every need.

It is obvious the owners have made great effort to create a.very comfortable and inviting interior..

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the house was adequately clean, spacious, and fully equipped. The exterior appearance and the condition of the front screened porch were the weakest qualities. The front porch floor and furniture needed attention.

Owner's Response: As with all homes there are projects and upgrades to be done, while at the house this week, we added a feature wall to the breakfast bar and replaced the master bathroom door with a sliding barndoor. The front screened-in porch is our next project to conquer. Thank you for your comments, we hope you'll stay with us again soon.

family vacation Aug 6th 2017

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and incredibly clean. The owners have it completely well stocked of everything you can think of or may have forgotten. Our family booked this property before it became a sleep 6 max, and the 7 of us(4 adults and 3 children) were very comfortable and had plenty of room to spread out. The outdoor shower was by far one of the best features that we took advantage of given it being our first beach vacation.. we had no idea just how much the sand was going to stick to ourselves and our belongings. It was great to be able to get cleaned up outside instead of getting it into the house to have to clean up. The house is on a quiet street and although we opted to not walk to the closest beach access.. it really isn't too far if we would have really needed to The drive to all the attractions/restaurants was also very easy to not very far away. We would definitely stay at this property again. It was just perfect for our 1st beach vacation.

Great House!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience during our stay at the Coral Cottage. This house is filled with everything you will need for your stay! The only problem we had was that the trash was never picked up.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately something slipped through the cracks with the trash company, not something we can control. If you had let us know on the day it was scheduled to be picked up, we may have been able to get it resolved. Thank you for your review.

pleasant laid back family-friendly house 10 mn from the beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this house very much - it is in a quiet and friendly residential neighborhood 10 minutes walking distance from the beach and away from the hustle and bustle of Panama City Beach- Our kids enjoyed the beach toys, scuba sets, and the wagon was perfect to carry it all. The house is pleasantly furnished, and the bedrooms and beds are very comfortable . the sofa sleeper is not however, and an air mattress is best for anyone planning to sleep in the living room. We enjoyed the large fenced backyard, and its outdoor shower, and had fun barbecuing and sitting by the fire at night. There is no shade there, so we limited our use of the backyard to early mornings and evenings. The kitchen met our needs, except for the dishwasher that needs maintenance. We really enjoyed our stay at Coral Cottage and recommend it!

Owner's Response: Sofa beds are never very comfortable, but there is a memory foam mattress topper in the closet to make the bed more comfortable, as well as an inflatable mattress for another option. There is an umbrella for the patio set to provide shade for the table. If it wasn't on the table, it would have been in the shed. We've never had an issue with the dishwasher, I guess it's a learning issue. When you start the dishwasher you need to push start twice. We'll have to include that instruction for future guests. Thank you for your review.

Very enjoyable, quiet and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing and quiet. Coral Cottage is at the West end of The beach away from all the traffic but close enough to go shopping and eat.at Pier Park. The Cottage is stocked with everything for the beach. We had a great time.
