About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, sleeps 5, 6 maximum

Cozy Cottage 2 short blocks from the beach- This is your quiet get-away to surf and sand. Neighborhood setting and a short walk to the beach. Enjoy quiet starlit nights , and when you are ready for distraction, take a short ride to music and restaurants on and off the beach, or shopping and a movie at Pier Park. A 15 minute drive from the new Panama City Beach airport!

Kitchen, living and dining room area. Queen bed in one bedroom, full bed and twin bed in second bedroom. Tile bathroom with shower. Laundry room with washer/dryer (detergent provided). Large front porch with swing and comfortable benches , chairs, light and table for night reading or just watching the sunset. Cable available for late night movies, and lots of books to read (Please leave books behind!) Movies and DVDs too. Internet access available for keeping up with friends or surfing the web. Additional outside shower (hot and cold water!) for washing off the sand. Small charcoal grill for cooking out. Bring your own beach chairs and beach towels.

Can see the ocean and dunes from our location! And the beach is practically your own! Easy beach access. We are away from the crowds and noise of Panama City Beach, but close enough to mix with the crowd when you are in the mood. So drive up the road for music and great seafood, or stay home and walk to the beach and listen to the surf.

Get away from the fast lane of the city, and enjoy our quiet beach home. Pet friendly!

And please remember that this is our summer home, and we love to share it. But treat it as your own so others and our family will always enjoy it. We hope you find it a wonderful get-away as we do! Go to travelehome and put in #54451 for more photos.

No smoking except on the porch, and must be accompanied by parent or older family member if under 23 years of age.

About Deborah Branscomb

Our family lives in Atlanta so we love getting away from the busyness of the city to our beach retreat. We find it relaxing and a wonderful getaway. And we are happy to share it and ask that our guests treat it as their home getaway too!

Why Deborah Branscomb chose Sunnyside

Our beach house is located in a quiet neighborhood where we can open the windows on a summer night and hear the waves pounding the surf, or sit on our large front porch and watch the night come. For me, this is my summer home where I get away to sun during the day or ride my bike to a nearby restaurant for dinner. Then later after taking in a movie at home, I take my ice cream bar and walk across a deserted beach road and sit on the beach steps and stargaze. Can't do that in Atlanta!

What makes this house unique

Almost private beach to yourself. Calm Gulf waters in the summer to swim or float in. Swing on our front porch to watch the nightfall or meet others on the beach steps with a glass of wine to watch the spectacular sunset!


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this cottage. It was just the right size for our family and had everything we could have asked for. The full kitchen was great and having a washer and dryer was super convenient. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the beach which was not crowded at all. We enjoyed sitting on the enclosed porch in the evenings and even took a bike ride around the neighborhood. We will definitely be back!

Cute Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at Bataan Cottage. This was our first visit east of 30A. The beaches are VERY lovely. The housekeeper greeted us and made us comfortable. She mentioned the Publix and Winn Dixie that are close by, and Carousel down the road where there are wine-tastings on Friday and Saturday. You will enjoy the front screened-in porch from where you can see the gulf. And hear the waves at night. The cottage itself is what I call "Old Florida" and is cute and charming. We toured PCB and Panama City and St. Andrews, and then drove one day to Apalachicola-a drive not to miss. Wish we were there as I write!!!

Owner's Response: I am late thanking you for your review, Ty! So glad you enjoyed your stay at our Florida home. One of our most valuable resources is our housekeeper. She is a longtime PanamaCity Beach resident, and treats our house as her own with not only cleaning but decorating too!

Location & house were both awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying on the west end of PCB. We had no idea that such a place existed in Panama City! The area was nice, quiet, & not crowded at all! The beach was great! Not crowded, plenty of room to put up a shade tent, and best of pay-to-use rental chairs taking up all of the space on the beach. The house was small, but provided plenty of space for our family (3 people & two dogs) to get around in very comfortably. The owners were great & easy to communicate with. We plan on coming back next Summer!

Great location and easy access to the beach

  • 5 of 5

If you want to avoid being in the middle of everything and having some peace and quiet this place is perfect.We had a great time in this cottage at the quiet end of the beach.Sitting on the screened in front porch at night is as peaceful as it gets.Relaxation at its finest for me.Once you make the 1 minute walk to the beach you will have all the space you could ever need or want.There are people on this end,never very many,and there is so much open space for setting up for the day.The location is/was perfect for the two of us and our dog.I think he enjoyed it as much as we did.There was plenty of room for another couple if we had brought friends along.Highly recommend this place and the owner is a pleasure to deal with.We'll definitely be back if they will have us.
