Looking to get away from it all, while being in the middle of it? Need a place that feels like home for kids, grandparents, couples, teenagers and doggies, too? Experience Leo’s Hideaway, a dog-friendly beach retreat in Laguna Beach, FL (Panama City Beach) with a PRIVATE pool (with option to heat), SCREENED porch and large, FENCED yard, with gulf and lake views.
This is truly a family retreat where you can be steps from the action, but also feel completely insulated with your own travel group. This 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom beach cottage is very private. Leo’s Hideaway is tucked away at the end of a long palm tree-lined driveway. Relax on the large screened-in porch overlooking your private pool, fenced back yard and Lake Pierna. Listen to the waves as you have coffee in the morning or watching the sunset. There are also Gulf views from the porch!

Once inside the property, everyone will immediately find their own space and make themselves at home. It’s easy to settle in, with everything at your fingertips in this open floor plan. Choose between a king bedroom with a dedicated full bathroom, 2 queen bedrooms, or a cool hidden bunk room in the hallway with a set of twin-over-twin bunks! There is an additional full bathroom accessible to the other bedrooms.

Located on the quiet west end of Panama City Beach, FL in Laguna Beach, this beach cottage is proof that location means everything! 0.1 mile to the GORGEOUS emerald waters and white sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, 0.2 mile to Carousel Supermarket and 0.2 mile to Thomas’ Donuts!

The living area is equipped with comfortable loungers and sofa, along with a 55” Smart TV. The living area leads out to the screened-in porch, which has more comfortable furniture and a dining table for four. The fully-equipped kitchen, which is completely open to the living area, has an island with 4 bar stools, so the whole gang can hang out while preparing snacks for the beach or dinner for the family.  

Leo’s Hideaway is also just 3.8 miles to Pier Park, with lots of shopping, dining, and entertainment options, 4 miles to Publix or Winn-Dixie, and 7 miles to Rosemary Beach, FL. You can experience everything Scenic 30A has to offer for a FRACTION of the cost of staying in Rosemary, Watercolor or Seaside. Plus, you can retreat to your quiet oasis after you have had your fill of the crowds. Enjoy 8 beach towels, 4 backpack beach chairs and 2 umbrellas, along with lots of privacy, making Leo's Hideaway your PERFECT vacation experience! We look forward to welcoming you!

Leo’s vacation retreat

5 of 5

Great location, newer pool, dog friendly and the right amount of space for us. Stayed for 3 weeks this spring as we did last year. Had a couple mechanical issues, no fault to management but they were quickly resolved. Cleaning could have been slightly better but we always do a once over when we arrive. Enjoy Leo’s and plan to stay again next year.

We have stayed at this location several times and each one is better than the last. We love the new pool! It was so relaxing and the view is stunning. The house itself is everything you could ask for, close to everything and yet still private. Thank you for sharing this amazing place with us!
