Panacea is a mid-island, pet and family friendly cottage on the quiet end of Sunset Beach. A short three minute walk gets you to the beach, over the elevated boardwalk that allows views into the expansive dunes that serve as home to deer, rabbits and sea turtle nests. Throw down your beach towel and enjoy one of the widest beaches on the east coast at low tide with great puddles to lounge, splash or build sand castles.Turn to the right towards Bird Island to find the fabled Kindred Spirit mailbox and leave your own message and continue on to explore the rock jetty that lines the inland waterway. Or turn to the left and you're headed toward the pier, great for people watching and getting an old fashioned orange sherbet push-up treat.
Panacea has been updated with modern but not too fussy beach décor throughout, with open floor plan and spacious bedrooms creating a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. Bedroom One has a king bed, two night stands, dresser, TV and bench. Bedroom Two has a queen bed flanked by nightstands, dresser and mirror, bench and wing chair. Bedroom Three has queen bed, dresser, chest of drawers and side chair. Bedroom Four is the twin bedroom with a chest of drawers also serving as a night stand, TV and full length mirror. The living area has a full sized couch with recliners on the ends, recliner love seat and a single reclining chair (sounds like a lot of relaxing going on!). End tables and coffee table provide a convenient place for your favorite snack or beverage. The dining table seats 6 but can be expanded with extra leafs stored in twin bedroom closet, extra seating with two stools at the bar. The kitchen has all the expected appliances--fridge, oven range, dishwasher, microwave. Mr Coffee Maker and Keurig, electric can opener, 4 slot toaster/bagel, toaster oven all available. The laundry area houses the washer, dryer, expandable drying rack, broom, dust pan (all you need since housekeeping is included!) with board games on the shelf. The back deck sports two rocking chairs and a picnic table. The large front porch with plenty of seating (2 Adirondaks, loveseat, wing chair and 2 footstools, two chair high bistro table set for morning coffee) is the perfect place to gather and enjoy those that matter most.
Under the house provides shaded parking but if you back your cars out a little sidewalk chalk can create a space for budding artists or a game of hop-scotch. The outside shower has a bench, hooks for towels and a hand-held shower head with great water pressure. A bin MAY have boogie boards, rafts, beach chairs and a variety of sand toys and a fat tired aluminum wagon with fishing pole holders will make it easy to cart whatever you want to the beach, just be sure to go down to the 40th street access (no steps). And after a day on the beach if you want to cook out, a 3 burner propane gas grill is at the ready for burgers, steak or whatever you caught fishing.
