Guestbook comments from the manager

Excerpt from our guest book......

We were soooo fortunate to find this beachy cottage. We've been coming to this area for YEARS, but have never stayed in a place like this (mostly condos). It felt like being home (except, of course, for the view, gulf..., etc.). We LOVE the decor (absolutely what a "beach house" should look like) and just perfectly my STYLE!

The amount of room (floor space, seating, dining) is wonderful. Proximity to the beach is good, making carrying chairs, umbrella, ice chest, etc., easier. The location is good as well - away from condos and congestion, but still close enough for shopping and entertainment.

To sum it up we LOVE IT, and will recommend it to family and friends, and will be returning!

Oh, wait, I almost forgot to mention that the house was built the same year my husband was born, which was a novelty to him, and he keeps making reference to it as the "55"!

Thanks for the memories!! Go TIGERS and Who Dat Saints - Louisiana!

P.S. We would have rented for six (6) + months, if it had been available.....

Beach Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house had everything! ! It was decorated so perfectly with a beach inspired theme. It was fresh and clean. You could see the beach right across the street. The beach is literally less than 40 yards out your front door. We loved the location! It is a more relaxed and laid back area. Grocery store was a few minutes away, like two blocks. Can't ask for better convenience than that. Less than 10 minutes to the heart of Panama City Beach where you could do a multitude of things. There was shopping, eating, recreational things for kids and the kid at heart. We enjoyed Capt. Jacks (all you can eat), Hammerheads and Margaritaville. We would encourage anyone who is interested in visiting Panama City Beach to make this house your home for your vacation. This was our first visit to Florida and it couldn't have been any better and the water was just beautiful!!!! Thanks for the opportunity to stay in your vacation house.

Very nice little beach cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We just got home from our getaway at the wheelhouse. The location is perfect...literally steps away from the beach. We were able to walk back and forth from the house to the beach very easily throughout the day. The house itself is very charming with a beautiful beachy feel. The house was roomy and clean with all the amenities you could want even a washer and dryer. I would've given the home 5 stars but my only complaint was the air conditioning. There are two wall units downstairs that work well for cooling the downstairs but even on a very low temperature running constantly the upstairs got kind of warm and humid during the day. This may not even be an inconvenience to some but I'm very hot natured so it was an adjustment for me. Overall it was a very pleasurable experience and we plan to come back next year!

Very cute vintage beach house across from Laguna Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our recent stay at the Wheel House. We loved being right across the street from beach access and walking distance from Thomas'! This house has some neat features which give it great character such as fireplace, original hardwood floors and stained wood ceilings in areas. The decor is beachy and super cute. Owner responded to emails quickly and was easy to work with. Would definitely stay there again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Gigi's wheelhouse. The home is spacious, beautifully remodeled and decorated, and extremely clean. The location is fantastic - right across from the beach access and close to restaurants and shops. Helen was wonderful to work with, as well. I highly recommend!

Love Love Love this Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Gigi's Wheelhouse. Honestly, it is just steps from the beach. Right across from the public beach access. The decor was gorgeous, delightful and relaxing. The Master had a vanity table which was nice. Both bedrooms are upstairs and we opted to use the downstairs bath because it had more room to put out all of our toiletries, etc. and we let our granddaughter use the upstairs bath. That worked out fine. Downstairs has a full sized daybed with a trundle and we tested out the mattress and it was super comfy. Everything was super clean and comfortable.

We liked the fact that it was at the quieter West end of PCB and convenient to Publix, Winn Dixie and a CVS. It was a short enjoyable drive over to Rosemary Beach and Seaside for shopping and dining. Plenty of restaurants close to the beach house but we enjoyed cooking in the charming kitchen. Even made two strawberry pies! We also enjoyed cooking burgers on the grill. We enjoyed using the WiFi and dvd player to watch a movie.

Helen was great to work with and responded quickly to any questions that we had upon arrival. We will definitely come back!

Perfectly lovely

  • 5 of 5

They're just aren't enough words to describe how adorable this lovely beach cottage is! And it's literally just across the street from the beach! The location is perfect also. The west end is so quiet and peaceful at night and yet it's just a short drive to Pier Park and the east side. The owner, Helen, is a complete pleasure to do business with! She's a super nice lady! The home should be featured in a magazine, it's that beautifully decorated. We loved the lay out, too. So very comfy and roomy! We highly recommend this beach cottage to everyone!!! You just can't beat it, I'm certain! Can't wait to go back!
