Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Panama City Beach, Florida
April 27, 2015
Our cottage stay was a bit of a challenge as I travel with a group of 6 people. The cottage was smaller than we imagined it to be which can cause issues. There wasn't enough sitting areas and the mosquitos were bad. The house was close to everything you can imagine including the beach. Owner easy to talk to & willing to help with anything. Kitchen was well equipped. There were chairs & umbrellas for the beach & on a good day at the beach you may just see dolphins!

Our Spring Break was awesome
April 14, 2015
The cottage is great! Easy to reach everything we were looking for especialky great locsl food and shopping, did i mention it is a quick walk to tge beach. Nice quiet location. Plenty of space for the family and a few friends. The extras in the cottage were a welcome treat- beach towels and beach chairs!!!! So nice if the homeowners. The cottage was a great spot for our Spring Break get away. I recommend that you look at this cottage if you are heading to the white sandy beaches of PCB.

Minutes from the Beach
April 14, 2015
We found the cottage to be very comfortable (loved that King bed) with everything we needed available. It rained relentlessly while we were there but we greatly enjoyed having lots of choices of TV to watch, books, and movies. When the sun finally came out, we discovered that the beach was minutes away! The County Pier is 1 mile east on Front Beach Road, with plenty of parking, restrooms, and a ramp down to the beach. We loved it! There are three main roads: Back Beach Road (PCB Parkway), Hutchinson, and Front Beach Road. Once we made note they run pretty much parallel, navigation was easy. We HIGHLY recommend Mike's Cafe and Oyster Bar west on Front Beach Road. We found the food to be delicious and reasonable.

We had a great time! We missed most of the "spring breakers", so that was nice. The house had everything we needed and more. I still daydream about the hammock that is in the back yard. The owner was very easy to get a hold of, just in case we had any questions or concerns. She was easy to "work" with, and responded quickly when we texted. We felt at home in the house, and enjoyed our stay very much.
Stayed two months.
April 6, 2015
Not a desirable neighbourhood,The furnishings need a lot to be desired,The fenced back yard is good if you own a dog.The house is clean enough,but it is still aa old renovated cottage, and over priced for what it is.

Comfortable, and relaxing stay
October 28, 2014
The house was comfortable, and accommodating for a large group of people. Everyone had their own space, yet we could all gather together for meals, etc. The beach chairs, umbrellas and carrier were all greatly appreciated; especially for a family who is traveling a great distance. The owners of the property made sure we had everything we needed, as also responded to any little hiccup that occurred. We would recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for the comforts of home while on vacation. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
Excellent Value, Close to everything.

Much better than expected! Thanks so much.
Comforts of home away from home
September 22, 2014
I first stayed at this charming cottage in July and I loved it so much that I returned just 2 months later for a second stay. I love all the amenities of home and Pat makes sure that there is everything you could possibly need in case you forget something. I loved that the kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed to prepare home cooked meals during your stay. This cottage is very cozy while quite spacious and extremely clean and tidy. It was very conveniently located to many fun things to do. Only about 5 min drive from pier park and many restaurants and most importantly a very short distance to the beautiful beach, it is in a nice safe and quiet neighborhood and had a very nice fenced in back yard so I was able to take my yorkie with me for the week and I felt very safe taking him for walks. Pat loves animals so is very understanding about that. I also know this wonderful family personally and they are some of the kindest and welcoming people I know. I would highly recommend this quaint little cottage to anyone and I will be retuning every chance I get.

Couldn't have asked for a Better Place to stay !!
July 27, 2014
7/19 - 7/26/14, Pat Guin is the nicest lady to talk to and most prompt with any issues or questions that may come about, We had the washer go out while we were here, I called her late one evening and she was prompt on getting a brand new one deliverd before we left, Saturday Morning before our check out time we were VERY BLESSED to have met her, She and her family drove down to measure for a new refrigerator that too was having issues, This shows you how dedicated she and her family are to making sure the guest of her home (Your stay there) are taken care of, The house was perfect size for our family of 6 and 2 dogs, its very clean and decorated in the cutest decor, has anything and everything you need, We loved the walks through the quiet neighborhood with the dogs, the beach is a short walk from the house(which we did everyday) it's within walking distance to many shops and stores,there is even a winery just around the block we walked to,did a few tastings,bought a bottle took it to the beach on the next to last night there where I sat and enjoyed it as I listened to the wave roll in, Nothing in the world better then that sweet sound of serenity ! We can't begin to express how much we LOVED our time in Panama City Beach and How PAT GUIN MADE THE TRIP AND STAY SO ENJOYABLE !! THANK YOU !! PAT GUIN AND FAMILY FOR EVERYTHING !! GOD BLESS YOU ALL !! WIll stay here again and recommend this place to everyone !!

The Guin's are so very nice and they open their beach home to us ever year! The place is clean and accommodating. Perfect for families or couples too! Very quiet area away from all the horns of the mopeds. Perfect yard for your family doggie or for children to play. We always choose the Balmy Oasis Cottage every year for our trip!

We really enjoyed our stay there. Mrs. Pat and Mr. Billy have a very nice little cottage, clean and comfortable. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a place to stay to stay here in this cottage. Thank you Mrs. Pat for allowing us to stay in your cottage for a few days, we all had a great time! We look forward to staying there again!

Favorite Family Vacation
August 6, 2013
The house is cute and clean, and comfortable. Easy walk to the beach while the shops & fun places to go are very close. Yet, I felt like we were far away from the town because the house is in a very quiet spot! The house had everything I needed to fix meals, play games, & just relax. It had the perfect "at the beach" feel to it. There is also a book, w pamphlets maps & menus, with everything possible to do, for us to use!!! We made sweet memories on our first trip as newlyweds to the Cozy, Comfy Cottage and look forward to making more! In fact we are going again soon, so we will keep you posted on any new updates on the house!! Thanks, for such an awesome house to vacation in!
Another great week at the Guin`s cottage
July 29, 2013
We love this place it like home away from home. The Guin family has worked so hard to make your vacation the best one. The house has every thing you need and the walk to the beach is nice.Cant wait until next year.Thank's Pat and Billy

Great Place for Our 1st Family Vacation!!
July 18, 2013
Words cant describe how much we enjoyed our week at Balmy Oasis Cottage. .. Great location and close to the beach, yet not right on it providing a time for peace and quiet!!. The cottage was bright and clean and well-equipped. It literally had everything we needed. We particularly liked the book that was put together of things to do, places to go, restaurant recommendations, etc. We have already recommended the Balmy Oasis Cottage to some friends who are interested.... We very much enjoyed a very relaxing weekend in your cottage - such a beautiful place. Thank you for the comfort and hospitality. We look forward to coming back :)
Better than ever!
July 7, 2013
We had a great stay! Lots of renovations have been made and the place looks better than ever. Plenty of room and fully equipped with everything we needed to cook, clean, and have relaxing times at the beach! Close to Pier Park and everything!

our favorite vacation spot
April 24, 2013
This was our 2nd stay here and once again it was perfect. The Cottage is so comfortable and quiet, you never have to worry about the kids running around and having fun or hearing those dreaded words " I'm bored"... There is so much to do and the Guins have supplied everything. It is so convenient to the beach, shopping, sight-seeing, Waterparks, aquarium, just everything! We love it here and are always so sad to leave. Can't wait to go back again!!!!
March 5, 2013
This place when I arrived was very dirty. The house in general is in poor condition. I had to clean both the frig. and stove before use. The owners did send someone over to clean the house. The area around this home is in bad condition. The carpets and furniture is old and in poor condition. Example: boards under the couch cushion. No hot water in the master bath sink. It's difficult to understand how they can require a cleaning deposit. Good for Spring vacation students, but I would not recommend it to anyone else. Yard was in deplorable condition. A lot of rot on the house. Hate to give such a bad review to such nice people. Not worth the money ask.
home away from home
July 23, 2012
This is our 5 th time to pink cottage as a family get a way. This is the best place and the nearest thing to our home. Because of all the things and places we can go. All we need is our fingertips for our use. Pat & Billy really go beyond to make it the place to stay . If you ever go there you will want to return. Thank you for all you do .

My husband and I took our son and some of his friends for their Sr. Trip. The cottage was perfect, close to everything they wanted to do and see. We loved the hominess of it and everything was in order when we arrived. Mrs. Pat had so many welcome treats for us. We will definatly be staying again. Looking forward to more time spent in the cottage at PCB! Everyone had such a great time! Thanks to Mrs. Pat for allowing us to rent and stay in her home away from home!

Awesome stay and wonderful time with Friends.
September 21, 2011
Me and My hubby to be came in on a Sunday right as tropical storm Lee had hit and had a heck of a time getting things into the house but once in was amazed at the house and all the things that was left for our special event as we weren't having a big shindig just a few of us and the beach was all and Pat was sweet enough to lend me a punch bowl and tablecloths to complete my table set up so I didn't have to buy more things that I didn't want to bring back. There were games and all the things possible to make you comfy and then some and the Wedding well all I can say is it was wonderful and very special and was blessed to find this gem and share it with my friends and family that attended our special day. There was room enough in the 3 bedrooms for my mom and brother to my maid of honor and my hubby and myself as well as my two four legged girls that were flower girls that carried their special baskets of rose petals. I could not have been happier with the tight budget that I had to find a place that could accomodate all of my needs and still fit into my budget. Thanks again Pat and family for the lovely picture frame at it sits at my desk as a reminder of my special day and stay at your condo. Forever Blessed for finding you, Mrs. Kaylenesue Balch

This was our second stay at the cottage and it was awesome... Last year we brought several people with us for our beach wedding. This year it was just the two of us (and our dog) for our anniversary. Perfect accomidations in both cases. We can't say enough about how wonderful the Guins and their cottage are. We are looking forward to next year!
Best kept secret in PC Beach
December 4, 2010
The cottage was absolutely fantastic. To go on vacation and feel like you are still at home is how we felt. All the amenities (a few more than what I have at home) were provided. The washer and dryer was a bonus. Pat was a wonderful hostess calling to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I recommend this to anyone looking for a little slice of heaven.. can not wait til next summer, we have already reserved... Thank you again Pat and God bless you and your family...Freda
Balmy Oasis Cottage
August 20, 2010
We loved Pat's cottage in Panama City Beach. I had to call Pat for one minor thing immediately after our arrival, and her husband told us how to fix it. We all, even Tugg, Cadi and Mickey (our pets) loved staying under the same roof. If we ever have a reason to be in that region again, I will give Pat a call. We were there for my niece's beach wedding and everything was beautiful. Her cozy, affordable cottage will always be a part of that memory, a great time with family and friends.
Perfect Family Gathering Spot!
July 23, 2010
Pat and family, thank you for making our stay at your cottage the best. We had a mini-family reunion and a great time was had by all. I would recommend the Bamly Oasis and God willing will be back next year!

We had a great time at the cottage... Everything we wanted to do was a short distance away...the beach, shopping, eating...very cozy place. There were many things for the kids in the house.. board games, puzzles...even the crayons we forgot to pack for the little one! We will for sure consider staying again if we go back to panama. Owners are wonderful to work with!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Balmy Oasis Cottage. As usual, we forgot to pack a few items, but found them waiting for us at the cottage. The location is excellent. We easily found our way to local restaurants, grocery stores, Pier Park, the First Baptist Church of Panama City Beach, and of course, the beautiful beach. Thank you for a much needed home away from home.

Love this cottage!

My family and I stayed at this cottage for 5 days during the first week of June. We loved it!! It was close to all the attractions that we had on our list. There were so many little extras for our use! Coolers, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc.! When we come back to Panama City Beach, we will definatley stay here again!
Weekend out of town
June 9, 2010
My family and I had the best time at the Quin's cottage in Panama City Beach. It was very homey and comfortable. We had room to relax and yet is was not so big that you felt like you were not able to have family time. I would definitely love to go back sometime. I loved everything about the cottage. It was nice to be able to cook and keep your laundry caught up while we were away. It made coming home alot easier. You can tell the Quins' have put alot of hard work and love into their cottage, it really shows..Thank you for a much needed weekend away.
June 4, 2010
We had a great time! The house is very cozy and just a short walk from the beach. Nice backyard -perfect for grilling. The Guin family is very accomodating. I would definitely recommend their cottage to anyone.
Nice place to stay
April 3, 2010
We stayed here just for a weekend. It is in a great location too. It is the right sized home, not too big but has a lot of things from utensils, games to towels. More than anything it was nice to talk to the guins who are very cooperative and friendly.
March 25, 2010
We spent two months at the Balmy Oasis this winter. If you're traveling with a pet, like we were, and looking for a good place, this is it. The location is excellent, right in the middle of everything and two blocks from the beach. The house is spacious and the backyard is fenced in. It's in a residential neighborhood and very quiet. The added bonus is that Pat is so nice to deal with. Anita & Jim from Wisconsin

We stayed at the Balmy Oasis in Jul while working in the area. Prior to arriving we stayed 2 nts in another house around the corner. This was heaven compaired to the other house. Very well furnished, a ton of room, nice neat and clean, yard for our dogs, and AIR CONDITIONED. The other house had a window unit IN JULY. We travel to this area working 2 times a year, and look forward to being a returning client year after year. Thank you for opening your house to our family and being pet friendly.

Hi Pat, Just wanted to let you know that we were getting ready to leave the cottage (very sadly I might add). This week has been wonderful. The cottage was everything we could have hoped for and more. Sooo comfortable and roomy. The extra addition you did is super. Everyone needs to experience PCB and your cottage at least once to get a taste of what Heaven must be like. Thanks again for sharing your home with us; we love it and Panama City Beach! Can't wait to come back!!! Thanks again, Sunny Day & Family

We had such a lovely week relaxing and enjoying the Ocean at the Balmy Oasis Cottage. It was neat as a pin with a very family oriented charm. (We weren't afraid we would break something.)Very convenient to the beach and all the supplies that were for our use made it so enjoyable. Coodos to Pat Quin... a terrific host. We will be back.
cute and quiet
April 8, 2009
If you're expecting 5 stars and granite counter tops and jucuzzi en suites, then this isnt your place. But it is perfect for those in search of a good time with great friends. A simple place that has that beautiful humble feel to it was what made this cottage feel like home. Everything you need including laundry, full kitchen and board games to convince you this isnt a sterile hotel room, but a "kick your feet up" and enjoy your tranquil surroundings place. The beach is literally 3 minutes by foot. It was perfect. Thank you Rich

First, the Guins are very good folks to deal with, and have a very cute cottage to share. You cannot beat the fact that a policeman lives 2 doors down, which makes you feel very safe, after all, it is in a nice quiet neighborhood. Our 10 yr old loved it, and was never bored with all the games, books, movies. It was like walking into your relatives home, where it's not yours, but it feels like it. The location is outstanding. You cannot get a better location, near Winn-Dixie, the beach, and fun stuff to do, this cottage was perfect in every way. Thanks Guin Family for making the Hollis Family vacation so awesome!

RENTERS BEWARE !! NO STARS !!
November 11, 2008
This house may have alot of things for the beach,however there are alot of hidden features! If you like clean and comfortable beds.DO NOT RENT THIS HOUSE!If you don't want holes in the the ceilings and the walls.DO NOT RENT THIS HOUSE!This house is not for anyone who wants a home away from home.Upon my arrive there I was suprised that the home was not clean and the owner had NO sympathy for my family after traveling over 900 miles to get there.I do not wish what happened to me and my family on anyone.So please be careful if you are considering this house as a vacation home .I told the owner about the condition of the home when I first arrived and she was all defensive and to me DID NOT CARE!I paid a cleaning fee and did not get that back even though we never stayed at the house . My family and I had to cut activities because we had to go and find a hotel to stay in for a week and pay out of pocket.My kids were so disgusted with the house they did not want to enter it.PRAY FOR THE OWNER
September 16, 2008
We had a wonderful time! It was very relaxing and layed back. Great for a family who wishes to escape the hustle of the main strip, but close enough to be anywhere in minutes. We highly recommend staying at the Balmy Oasis Cottage. If not for the house itself, but for the wonderful and super friendly owners.
Truly an Oasis

everything you can think of is at the house - grill, beach items, blender, blow dryer, books, games & movies!! i forgot the book that i was planning to read... and it was there!! the outside shower is a super plus. This is a great family to rent from -they truly want you to enjoy yourself while you are there :o) thank you!!
perfect for us!
July 19, 2008
This was our family's first real beach vacation and staying at the cottage was a great for us. The cottage is well stocked with literally everything you need (including a bunch of towels & beach chairs), and the kitchen has everything you need to fix meals (minus the food of course!). We enjoyed cooking there instead of eating out all the time & it saved on expenses too. The beach is a 3 block walk away, but it's really not that bad. There is a place I found to park my car two blocks down, beside a t-shirt shop, when I wanted to take alot of stuff down to the beach & didn't want to walk. The only minor issue was the hot water. It's has a smaller water heater & you can't take hot showers in both bathrooms at the same time. But, after a hot day at the beach, we didn't really want/need hot showers, so it wasn't really an issue for us. The neighborhood was quiet and seemed very safe. We'll definitely be back next year! Email me if you have any add'l questions...

A Much Needed Vacation
June 14, 2008
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Balmy Oasis Beach Cottage. Our family of 5 felt at home there. We didn't want to leave because it definitely was an oasis for us. It was a getaway from the busyness of our lives and a place of family bonding.
All the comforts at home--at the beach!
June 12, 2008
The cottage was roomy, clean, and pleasantly decorated. Very relaxing. No disappointments. Wanted to buy a "gift" for the cottage, but honestly couldn't think of a thing it lacked. Enjoyed my sunset strolls on the beach--less than a 5-minute walk from the cottage. One of my best and most memorable beach experiences. You'll love it.

Snow Birds Enjoy Balmy Oasis
April 25, 2008
Balmy Oasis was a comfy, inviting place for us. Inside we had to space and features we needed. I really liked the looks of each room--especially the "Snow White" bedroom with three beds plus a fourth one that could be pulled out. We liked the easy walk to the beach. It offers great access to things and places we wanted to reach and our hosts gave us fine ideas of places to try. We invited some family members to join us and we were comfortable. As friendly, helpful host Pat said, It IS a pleasant home away from home. We enjoyed their books, the hammock, and beach gear. The pictures provided are true to what we found. In spite of a couple of plumbing glitches, our time was not marred.

Air Show Crash
April 2, 2008
While the home is cozy it was dirty and we had to burn some scented candles to mask an odor that really left me wondering if we were staying in a "sick" house. I believe the owner needs to find someone else to clean their property. We left the house much cleaner than we found it and almost called the owner and asked for a refund before we stayed Having said that, it is a quiet place for the most part and since this was the first time I have rented a vacation rental, the first impression could be just my own expectations being too high.

We spent six weeks away from the Central New York weather and came home to snow, snow and more snow. This was a great place to relax and to see the sights and enjoy the wonderful native sea food. The Guins were wonderful to us and fulfilled all of our requests. Do yourself a favor and spend some time at this comfortable oasis.

Staying there was so relaxing. I fealt like the worries were all vanished away. To be able to go to the beach when ever I wanted to and to be able to come back to our(for the time we were there) little beach house and relax. It was great. Wil do it again next October.

Pinch Me I'm Dreaming
April 10, 2007
I needed somebody to pinch me because I thought I was dreaming I was having such a great time! I would just like to thank the Guin family for such a great opportunity. We went during the peak of spring break season but it was tough to notice. There was nobody on the beach on either side of us for at least 300 yards! Seriously we had the beach to ourselves and it was just what the doctor ordered for a RELAXING vacation!

Wonderful vacation in PCB at Balmy Oasis Cottage
February 6, 2007
We really enjoyed our stay at the Balmy Oasis Cottage. The location is excellent...close to everything we planned on doing while we were there. We took advantage of the gulf-wading in the water, finding seashells, taking pictures of the sunrises and sunsets. Cinder Sue enjoyed the fenced back yard and socializing with the neighborhood cats. It was so relaxing there and had a feeling of being at home.

We Didn't Want To Leave
July 18, 2006
I can't describe how much I enjoyed our time in Panama City Beach while staying at the cottage. My family and I are adventure seekers. We love water sports of all kinds. Sailing, surfing snorkeling, diving, we love it all as well as golf, tennis and anything else you can do outside. It was so nice after a long day at the beach, in the water, or at the links to come back not to a sterile hotel room or condo but a place that was as comfortable and inviting as your own home. We were so comfortable that when time came to return to our home no one wanted to leave. Mrs. Guin and her family have a real treasure in their little cottage. I hope to be able to stay their again.
Cedartown, GA USA
The cottage was great!
July 17, 2006
The cottage made my stay in Panama City Beach very comfortable. I roomed with a total of 7 people and we all found the cottage to still be very spacious and convenient. I also liked the privacy and security I felt with the cottage because of its quiet residential location. It felt so much like home that all the kids on the trip just started calling it "home". The Guin family was also very kind to us and helped make our vacation go smoothly. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone and I hope I will be able to stay there in the future!
July 12, 2006
we actually got some sleep this vacation. no noisy people next door or in hallways like in a motel. you could hear birds in the morning. beds were comfy,even my 11-yr old said so. we were also close to lots of stuff to do. we truly enjoyed our stay! ricky,susan & miranda

The cottage was a wonderful place for my family to enjoy their vaction. 3 out of the 4 children we have were able to go and we brought a quest with us. So including my husband and myself along with the kids there were 6 of us. The house accomidated us very nicely. We really enjoyed having all the conveniences of home. Everything I could think of was there. With that many people we only ate out a couple of times so the grocery store was only l block up the road. Everything we needed was in the kitchen and we also put the grill to good use. The only thing that I wish was that the beach had been just a tiny bit closer but with the beach cart it made it alot easier to haul all our beach toys, towels, chairs, books, sunscreen, coolers, umbrellas, ext ext ext. :-)))) We had a wonderful time and will enjoy coming back again. Thank you Guins for a wonderful get away location. May God richly bless you all for allowing perfect strangers to enjoy your beach cottage. The Ferris's and Friend Chattanooga, Tn

Fabulous Fall Escape
September 22, 2005
A quiet,cozy cottage. No hustle and bustle outside the door, yet walking distance to everything! The furnishings make you feel comfortable,like you can relax and be on vacation. Master bed sleeps very well. That's important! Everything you need (and everything you forgot) is already here. We walked on Bid a Wee Beach alone, watched the sun set everynight, spent lazy afternoons reading in the hammock, grilled fresh seafood from Buddy's market, watched the boats come in at Capt. Anderson's, great dining at Pompano's, and drove to Cape San Blas to pick up shells. I could not have been happier. A great place to stay at a very reasonable price. Pat and Billy are wonderful, helpful people! Thanks!
Great Family Time!!!

Guins - thank you for sharing your cottage with us. We have always stayed in condos on the beach with all the hectic,crowded hussle & bussle. This time - none of that!! Your cottage gave us a new perspective on beach life. It was so cozy and peaceful. We enjoyed the short walk to the beautiful beach and did things we normally never think to do - like play games and just sit and talk. The house is adorable - A great cottage with great owners. I will recommend it to all my friends that need to "get away" to PCB!! thank you again The Colvin Family

Pat & Billy, We stayed at your place with our 4 children and it was the first time ever that there were no fights! We all played games and grilled and enjoyed the beach. We had an excellent time and the cottage was wonderful! No complaints from a family of six! Would stay there again!
Great Place to Stay!!

We had a great time and the cottage was more than we expected! Pat was great and extremely helpful (especially when our battery was dead on the very last day) and we will be back next year!!

We really enjoyed staying at the Balmy Oasis Cottage. The location was fantastic and the rental experience even better!
Quiet, Comfortable and Relaxing

I stayed in the Balmy Oasis Cottage for a week this summer and had a wonderful time. I had my mobility impaired father with me and he easily navigated the house and the handicap accessories in the master bathroom were very helpful. The cottage has all of the amenities you need and more. I think the most impressive part of my stay, though, was the wonderful support and service we received from the owners. It was truly a great vacation.
