Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This adorable beach cottage is located in Emerald Pointe Resort, one of the friendliest gated communities near the beach. Stay in our two bedroom beach-themed cottage surrounded by palm trees as you enjoy all the amenities provided by the resort. Enjoy the large heated pool by the beautiful clubhouse (complete with hot-tub), or the cozier pool near the small fish stocked lake with boardwalk and catch-and-release fishing. Emerald Pointe is family oriented and perfect for bike riding, strolling and skating. There's even a playground by the clubhouse. While the SandCastle welcomes well behaved dogs, owners must follow the resort rules concerning dogs: Pets must be added to the rental agreement and pet fee must be paid. All dogs must be under 25 pounds, leashed while outside and owners must pick up after their dogs. While inside, dogs are not allowed on the furniture.

Enjoy the convenience of covered parking at your front door. The Sand Castle has a fully supplied kitchen complete with everything you'll need for your vacation including a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. Luxurious linens are provided for your bed and bath. In fact all you'll need to bring with you is your suitcase. The master bedroom comes with a Queen sized bed while the second bedroom is perfect for children with it's built in bunks providing a full size bunk on the bottom and a twin sized bunk at the top. The master bedroom has cable TV and DVD player while the Florida room has a new flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player. We've even got a drawer full of family themed DVD's for your entertainment. Bring your laptop too, because the SandCastle has wi-fi.

Relax in the large tiled Florida room and pleasant screened-in back porch. We provide a library of DVD's, board games and books for your visit. We've even got a toybox in the Florida room to keep your little ones occupied. Also provided for your use are some beach essentials, such as sand chairs, sand mats, umbrella, sand toys and a rolling cooler.

Enjoy your morning coffee sitting on the patio and watching the sun come up in this serene resort that reflects Florida's relaxed lifestyle. The cottage is spacious and affordable and just minutes away from one of the world's most beautiful beaches, championship golf, tennis, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, fine dining and good family entertainment. There's even a local trolley to help meet your transportation needs. Be sure to check out St. Andrew's State Park and the new Pier Park as featured in the June 2008 Southern Living magazine. Both of them are just minutes away. Perhaps you'd prefer a day of shopping at the Silver Sands Outlet Mall in Destin, less than an hour away. Come enjoy our comfortable climate and friendly atmosphere. You are responsible for the $70.00 cleaning fee which you leave in cash when you check out.

Gayle Blake purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Gayle Blake chose Panama City Beach

We have always loved Panama City Beach since spring breaks in college (a long time ago). We have relatives in the area and love the friendly laid back Florida lifestyle. We're hoping to retire on the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

You're five minutes away from the world's most beautiful beaches and yet you have the privacy and tranquility of your own place in a gated community with all the amenities you want while at the beach. Float a couple of hours in one of the pools, throw some horseshoes or scoot some shuffleboard while watching the kids frolic in the pool, the playground or the hot tub. For the price of a hotel room you get so much more. Grab the provided cooler, sandchairs, beach umbrella and beach towels and head to St. Andrew's State Park (5 minutes away) for some fun in the sun. Book a scuba diving trip or deep sea fishing and spend the day on (or under) the clear aqua waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Then come back to the SandCastle, park at your own front door and throw some seafood onto the charcoal grill. From the resort you can avoid the beach traffic on the strip, while having dining, shopping and beaches right around the corner. It's paradise, and you might just decide to stay...and stay...and stay.
