Location was great. Very accommodating.

Great location & super cute! Only complaints would be parking (says there's parking for 4 but we could barely get our truck & trailer in the drive) & there were ants in the front bedroom (so we chose to sleep in the back). Stocked well with all you need :)
Thank you for your review, Malley. We are glad you enjoyed this location and apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. This home allows parking for up to four standard-sized vehicles, but you may need to use the entire space for a truck and trailer. We are happy to report the ants have been treated, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

Quaint place, but had to buy toilet paper and and blanket for one of the rooms
Thank you for staying with us! We are sorry if there was any miscommunication regarding the paper products in the home upon arrival. We do provide starter packs of paper products and detergents, and anything required beyond what is provided is the responsibility of the guest.

This was an ok stay. There were great things and things I'd change. We loved the sun deck and outdoor shower amd we loved how close to the beach it was. There were issues like no trash bags, no laundry detergent despite the request to start laundry before we left, there were sugar ants every where, no soap in the dispensers at the sink, and the blankets and couches are stained with grease spots. Over all,it was highly priced for the stay.
Vacasa provides a starter pack of laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, etc. Anything that is needed after what is provided is up to the guest to provide for themselves. If these items are not present upon arrival, as long as we are contacted, we are happy to bring these items to our guests. Unfortunately, we were unaware that you were in need of certain items. The ants in this home have been taken care of since this stay. We are glad you enjoyed our home during your stay and we hope to get another chance to impress you in the future!

But way smaller in person.

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary from 7/3 to 7/13. Absolutely perfect size and location for our trip. It appears a little small in pictures and granted it is, but it fit us perfectly. We flew three teenage kids in for four of the days and we had no issues with space. It is clean and comfortable. Kitchen had all the essentials and all appliances worked well. Well decorated and located just far enough away from hustle and bustle, but close enough to easily get to everything. Saw a few other reviews that gave it poor marks for AC and floors, but we had no issues with either. Outside enclosed shower was a big hit!
The beach is easily within sight and walking distance away. We were there on the weekend of Independence Day and had no issue with finding space and from there the beach really was not too busy the rest of the week.
The Carousel grocery store in front of the house has just about everything you need and prices were easily comparable to all other chain stores including Wal-Mart. Fresh produce and meats were easily within range and worth not having to go very far for anything.
For the price this easily blew away our expectations and our experience was nearly perfect. We would highly recommend this spot for small families with no frills expectations or budget conscious minded folks like us who just needed a place to rest, relax, and regroup. Would stay here again in a heart beat! If possible would give it an additional gold star!
Only two things I can think to say that are "negative" if that, chairs around table are a bit too high, so difficult, but not impossible, to sit at the table all the way under unless small person. Floors slightly slope in spots due to age of original home and foundation settling I would guess, but after first day no one noticed and really quite nit-picky to even point out.
Saw this property on several sights, but would highly recommend using the Vacasa sight that I believe owns the property.

Cottage has lots of charm. Even though the house is small in square footage it fells large in the main living areas. Great location, close and easy walk to the beach as well as the grocery store and Thomas's Doughnuts. Outdoor shower was great for washing off the sand.
Jada W.Mar 2019
It was about 15 minutes away from everything (fun stuff) , checking in was easy, the house was kind of old looking but it was still nice and we still all had a great time so it wasn’t that bad especially for the price and being last minute.
Greg J.Sep 2018
We loved everything about this little house!
Exceptionally clean and in a perfect location. The Carousel has everything we needed and the prices were great. The pics make it seem that it is a good distance to the beach but it’s actually not at all. So much better than the walking you do at a condo. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the upper deck watching the ocean. I highly recommend staying here. I know we will be back very soon!
Stacy S.Aug 2018
This bungalow is situated a short walk from the beach, and is right behind a locally owned market. It is also about two blocks from Thomas donuts, making it an easy morning walk to breakfast!
There are so many positives about this house, such as the functional layout, cute decor, outdoor shower, and rooftop deck! We loved it and will definitely book again!
I am only giving it a 4 star rating though, for the one negative, which was that the laminate floors are buckling all over the main living space. Once the floors are remedied, this will be a 5 star rental for sure!
Allison L.Jul 2018
We had a good vacation, I rated a 4 star because it had a few things that we didn't like. Me and hubby sleeped on the pull our couch because t rooms feel really boxed in and tiny. I didn't have a broom so I had to contact the manager and the vacuum was tore up so I had no way of cleaning up sand until they brought me the broom. The labor problem with this house is you can't turn the AC lower than 74 and it was super hot there during the day and we had a 3 month old with our other kids. I will stay here again if th AC got fixed. The outside shower was love for my husband and when coming back from the beach. The kitchen was cute!
We appreciate this guest taking the time to give us a review. The vacuum and broom have been replaced. The air conditioning isn't broken; it's very humid in Florida, and when air conditioners are turned too low they will freeze up. Thank you!

Beds were firm and comfortable.
BBQ in back yard.

After reading other reviews I would agree that the beach bungalow is exactly as advertised. It is 1/2 block from beach access, trucks Do roll in to the Carousel early some mornings, It is fairly priced, and several restaurants within 5 miles. Only update that might be nice would be different mattresses, but I’m spoiled in that point.
Christopher C.Jun 2018
It had everything we needed and I was completely pleased with our stay. If I could give 4.5 stars, I would, but it's just not a 5-star location. It was only a short walk to the beach, and there was a small grocery store right next to it that was extremely convenient and had great prices.
Lindsay M.May 2018
This was a great location. So close to the beach. The house was very nice and updated as well.
Jolie T.May 2018
Was exactly what we wanted and needed for a 3 day weekend. We will be back
Wendy W.Apr 2018
Very cute little house, great location! Perfect if you don't wanna live the condo life.
Cathy B.Mar 2018
Closeness to the beach, we love to walk. The place had everything we needed, nice grocery store close. The only negative was when the sun hit the door, the lock wouldn’t work, a little troublesome.
Teresa H.Nov 2017
The house is located in the perfect spot. Close to the beach, The Carousel, and Thomas’ Donuts. It is in our favorite area away from the busy tourist area very quite and relaxing. The home is beautifully decorated with new appliances. It is very clean and had everything we needed to bring the Thanksgiving holiday to our son that is serving in the Navy there in Panama City.
Sumalee R.Oct 2017
We had a great time at this house. It was very clean and conveniently located behind carousel grocery store. It is the perfect size for one or two couples, I would stay here again.
Kerry K.Jul 2017
This house had a great location that was very close to the public access beach. the house looks like it was recently renovated although most of that was cosmetic it seems. We had problems with ants from day one. Late sleepers beware of the delivery trucks making early morning deliveries to the grocery store right next door. I loved the outdoor shower and used it every day!
Julie L.Jul 2017
I personally enjoyed my stay at this cottage. Just make sure you take a close look at the pictures to see if this space will fit your needs. We had 4 adults staying here. One on the sleeper sofa (she found it very comfortable), another in one of the bedrooms and a couple in the second bedroom. Realize there are no closets, just chifforobes. We spent most of every day on the beach and used the outdoor shower more than the indoor. They both have hot and cold water. This house is directly behind the Carousel store, very convenient, and across the street from a dedicated beach. No buildings beach front. Housekeeping had left several towels, 4 dishwasher cubes, 4 laundry cubes and a small bottle of dish soap. Salt and pepper was all we found in the cupboards. Another bonus was that this house is 11 minutes from the Panama City Airport. If you're looking for a quiet strip of beach, out of the masses, you should check out Laguna.
Angela S.Jul 2017
The house was very small but it was just the right size for our family and friends! If you have small children the playpen will not fit in the room! The queen size bed takes up most of the space in the rooms. The Pullout couch was available but not very comfortable. Outside grill and a 2 sitting areas outside(awesome) it also had an outdoor shower for the sand. Quiet neighborhood, close to local attractions and last but not least LITERALLY 5 minutes from the beach☀️😊
Pamela C.Jul 2017
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is very convenient to the beach (It's across the street) and at the end of the action packed strip. Close to restaurants and Pier Park, where all the shopping is. There is a grocery/gift shop/liquor store right in front of this property making it very convenient to get anything you need in walking distance. It was very clean and comfortable and we would stay here again!

A little cramped for our family of four. Beautiful home. Nicely decorated and very clean!!
