Perfect

Our host greeted us with lemon bars and invited us over for wine and great conversation after dinner. Our spot was quiet and very pleasant we hope to return the favor some day. So thank you again and safe travels.

Great Host

We had a wonderful stay. The location was peaceful and quiet and we couldn’t have asked for a better host! Would definitely choose this location again and recommend it to others.

Great spot and generous hosts!

I had a lovely couple of nights in Panacea (LOVE that name!) -- it surely was a cure-all for what ailed me. Overall, a pretty quiet spot with a couple of minor noise surprises. There was a little gun fire off in the distance, off and on. I swear I heard a peacock's calls one night at dusk but not the next...? Bob and Margie were very welcoming and hospitable, including loaning me an extension cord, inviting me to "social hour" with them in the evenings, and inviting me to stay another night or two, if I wanted. If I hadn't had an ocean front reservation waiting for me at Carabelle, I would have said yes!

Peaceful Panacea

Despite a family crisis that had our hosts elsewhere, we felt welcomed with a note and suggestions of where to eat and what to explore in the area. Sorry we missed you!! It’s a lovely quiet spot, and we were grateful for your hospitality.
