Accessible Bid-A-Wee Beach cottage w/ private beach access! Snowbirds welcome!

If you’re in the market for a great beach rental, look no further than this Panama City Beach vacation rental in Bid-A-Wee Beach. Located on the land of a larger property, this guest house is small and intimate, with one bedroom and one bathroom – perfect for a romantic weekend away! Since it’s on the first floor of the property, it’s also great for older guests who may not want to climb stairs.

Located on Bid-A-Wee Beach, a private recreation area in one of the most desired sections of Panama City Beach, you’ll be just two houses from the sand. If you feel up to soaking in the sun, swimming, and relaxing, this rental could be your perfect home away from home.

Recently updated with new tile flooring, a lovely bathroom, and a remodeled kitchen, this rental may be small, but it is also quite stylish and accommodating.

Pick up some of your favorite grocery items to store in the updated kitchen, and make a meal using all of the great appliances available. When you’re done, you can sit at the lovely French bistro table, watching something on the large flatscreen TV in the room, or just make yourself comfortable on the sofa. There’s also a private washer/dryer tucked away in a closet in the corner, so no need to over-pack!

The spacious bedroom has a king bed comfort after a fun day out and about. Watch something on the cable-ready flatscreen TV while you hang up your things in the large closet. It has plenty of storage room for all of your clothes, so you can bring whatever you want without fear of suitcase wrinkles.

The tiled bathroom has a wonderful upright shower - take note of the frosted-glass shower door, numerous towel hooks mounted on the wall, lovely granite countertops, and dark wood cabinets.

You can use all of your favorite electronic devices since free WiFi is available throughout the home. There is also partial AC, provided by windows units in each room.

When it’s time to head down to the beach, grab your swimsuits and towels and walk just two houses to the end of the street for gate access to private Bid-A-Wee Beach, open only to residents and guests in the area.

An outdoor shower is great for getting the sand off your feet after a day spent crafting sandcastles and splashing around in the waves. You can even hang your beach towels and swimsuits off the clothesline to dry in the sunshine!

The yard is shared between the guest home and the main home, and the sundeck and front yard are for guests of the main home, so please be mindful of your neighbors in this quiet, residential area. If you want to spend some time outside, you'll have a private patio out back with its own outdoor furniture.

Spend your first day here exploring the local beach, and carve the majority of the next day out to go on an adventure! Nearby, you’ll find plenty of family-friendly attractions, such as WonderWorks, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and Miracle Strip Amusement Park. If it’s just adults along for the ride, there are a plethora of shops, restaurants, and waterfront nightclubs within easy driving distance from your rental.

It was great for the price and area. It was maybe a 2-3 mins walk to the beach gate not far at all. I will visit again.

Excellent value! Convenient to private beach, practical amenities and fully stocked kitchen with full stove and oven. Can't ask for anything else...

Left cottage yesterday. We enjoyed our time there. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood very close to the beach. Its a great size for couples or a family with smaller children. I have 3 large teen boys. We made it work but were crowded. It's clean and nicely decorated. Needs a few more kitchen items dollar tree has like baking sheet and pan . Bring your own crockpot if you think you'll need it and a spatula and pot holder. I would definitely return with a friend or staying solo. For the rate, it's decent. Nice patio, pergola, grill and loved the outdoor shower.

Great little cottage. For two people it works well, for 4 it would be crowded.

Cottage was just right for the weekend for myself and my 11 yo daughter. 2 rooms were plenty enough for us to hangout in the amount of time we were there. We stayed on the beach as much as we could. Very nice to have 2 large walk in closets in the bedroom, a washer and dryer and full bathroom and kitchen included. Enough towels and wash cloths which is always nice when you are at the beach. Beds were plenty for a family of 4. Loved the fact they had a grill and little patio area by the grill. The shared house deck and swing was a nice insensitive as well. Has an outdoor shower with warm running water as if you were in the actual shower inside. Beach access was literally so close and was less than a minute walk for your feet to hit the sand. We enjoyed our little weekend getaway. Will definitely check on this place again for a quick getaway in the future.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The rooms were big enough for my family of four. We were a five minute walk to the beach which was a real pleasure. The beach was not crowded in this area.

We had a full size kitchen so we cooked most of the time. At night, it was very peaceful and relaxing in this area.

The location is very close to restaurants and grocery stores!

The only con that I would mention is the fact that the washing machine was broken during our stay. A heads up on this would have changed the way we packed.

This is a no-brainer for a perfect vacation spot. Go ahead and book!
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! We apologize that the Washing Machine was broken during your stay, but can confirm that it is in good working order now!

Spent 5 days here and it was everything that we expexted. The small house was the perfect size, the outdoor space was great, and the location was so convenient. The neighbors were very nice and even took the trash bins to the road so we didn't forget. I really enjoyed the beach access since it was more private and away from other tourists. Sadly I do have a few minor complaints. 1- the information we received said the house included everything we would need for cooking, but that wasn't quite true. There were no cooking utensils or a colander (which we had to go buy) and only one pan & baking sheet (so we had to cook one thing at a time.) They did have one of those grill/cook top things but it was missing two important pieces, including the power cord.. 2- not a big deal but they only supplied us with two garbage bags with a very small trashcan. Like i said, Its really not a big deal unless you want to cook every night like we did. 3- No pantry. What I believe was suppose to be the pantry was locked and our keys didn't open it. The only other space for food storage was in the closet with the washer/dryer. It's not as bad as it sounds! Above were three cabinets with shelves in them which was great for us.
Overall this tiny house was amazing and had some nice features that we didn't expect, like the outdoor shower. There were plenty of blankets, pillows, and towels. The shower was a good size, and the small beds for kids were actually pretty comfy. Last year we stayed in a different,much larger house, and didn't like it as much. Location and convenience were definitely a selling point for us and I would stay here again anytime.
A huge THANK YOU to the owners and vacasa for making this vacation feel like a home away from home.

This was my 8 and 5 yro first trip to the beach and this cottage made so many great memories. It was the perfect size and set up- two separate living spaces. And plenty of outdoor yard and patio. Also on site grill made the difference. Cottage is furnished like home and location is exceptional- safe quiet and private beach access... We cant wait to go back and stay at this beach home!

My son and myself stayed here for spring break. Neighborhood is quite. Access to the beach was real close. Nice size yard to play catch in. Had all the amenities that you need other than a dishwasher. Outdoor shower was awesome. Price for the stay was very fair. Would stay again. Thank you!

Perfect little getaway. Just everything you needed. Great location between it all. Awesome beach. Nothing fancy fancy, but absolutely charming and wonderful. Will stay again and again and again as long as it keeps up the amazingness.

Good value.
Adam C. Oct 2015
It's hard to beat the price and location of this little cottage. It's not the biggest or best furnished spot on the beach, but it was very clean during our stay and right next to Front Beach street. It is also very close to Pier Park. Great location.

A couple of things to note: There isn't a dishwasher. Not a huge deal, just be prepared to hand wash the dishes. There isn't much counter space and it has a very small bathroom. But it has everything else that you would need, with plenty of living space for a couple. They also had 3 small bench beds that could fit children if needed.

Overall a good experience, and a good bargain.
