Holiday Rental House
Fitzcarraldo's Dream Cottage is best described like the movie in 1982 of the true story of Fitzcarraldo in the early 1900's. This dreamer chose to build and float an Opera House against great odds. down the Amazon River so he could listen to Carrouso perform there!!. Here, our version is a dreamy, architecturally designed and just completed cottage. ,(THIS ARCHITECT loved the freedom to create and design this 'over the top' cottage for two) It sits in the midst of Pecan Trees down an alley, tucked away in Panama City. This architectural wonder is NOT ON THE BEACH! Experience why the locals love this town! We're so perfectly close to it all. With just as much flair, the interior designer was given free rein and gathered fine art and created whimsical pallets of color....hope...Fitzcarraldo's Dream Cottage is best described like the movie in 1982 of the true story of Fitzcarraldo in the early 1900's.

With just as much flair, the interior designer was given free rein and gathered fine art and created whimsical pallets of color....hope you like periwinkle blue! We love the fact that we're close to everything that Panama City, ,Panama City Beach, St. Andrews and Mexico Beach can offer. Fifteen or twenty minute drive yet away from the maddening crowd.! From this central point you're easily able to take day trips to Apalachicola or Seaside and Rosemary Beach Here you get to relax in large. rather luxurious, accommodations for two, You're in your own 'private world ' cottage that opens with French doors to a nice deck and then a separate screened- in porch with wet bar / ceiling fans and comfortable seating....perfect for late night seafood dinner outside by candlelight.. Take advantage of a .perfect night to enjoy listening to the sounds of the night and gaze at the stars! We've prepared maps and locals inside tips, on the best restaurants, theater, evening entertainment, fishing, boating, and sight seeing. Plenty of room here so you could trailer your boat...bring it along! We're perfect for any business trip to Panama City...so bring your partner to enjoy our attractions while you're at work! Shopping is near by.....( local fresh seafood and farmers markets would make it fun to cook your own feast in our brand new fully equipped kitchen....More

About the neighbourhood
This is a dreamy 'get away Place' ...yet close to beaches, historic St. Andrews with shrimp boats, great seafood restaurants, open markets, charter boats, exploring Shell Island by charter trips, great shopping and small town feeling. Wander and explore. We located in a woods of PECAN TREES and the only noise youll hear at night are the frogs and crickets when you choose to sit out side in your very private screened in porch with wet bar and a nice big grill....should you choose to cook your own dinner. ( we have a complete stocked kitchen...just bring your own food. ( why not your fresh caught fish.?) re a little fancy ... even a little chocolate on your pillow.......which makes everyone feel special..........Do it right and come stay with us!..
How to get there
Right off Highway 231 one mile before reaching the Panama City Mall in Panama City, Florida. We're tucked away in a quiet neighborhood , with private entry to a shady pecan tree woods yet right in the town of Panama City. Just a ten mile drive to Panama City Beach, 15 mile drive to Mexico Beach....Surrounded by all the options of a beach community! Historic St. Andrews ( five miles) is perfect for open markets, great shopping, cool restaurants. and charter fishing. Plan ahead and make reservations to go by boat to Shell Island, or charter fishing trips, great night life with all the bells and whistles or quiet charming seafood ,oyster spots, the locals know. Live music...good entertainment or quiet getaways.....
