Overview

Shores of Panama Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This new condo has been outfitted with upscale furnishings only fitting for such a luxury resort as the Shores of Panama. The condo's location on the 19th floor allows for a full view of the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the white sand beaches as well as the exotic tropical pool area with its tiki bars, bridges, fountains, hot tubs and zero entry pool. Without leaving the resort you can enjoy the fitness center, steam room, sauna and other spa services as well as the large heated indoor pool. Your rental also comes with a reserved covered parking space. Everything you could want or need off the beach is only a short distance away. We are across the street from Wal-Mart and next door to Pineapple Willy's, a Waffle House and major top-rated restaurants. In addition, you will find a couple of Red Box rental locations, Ripley's Museum, go-carts and other family activities all within walking distance of the condo. Pier Park, a short drive away, offers great shopping, dining and an exciting night life!

The main living area contains custom furniture and has a queen sleeper sofa and a couple of swivel chairs all providing for a truly laid back and relaxing experience. You will find you can kick back in comfort as you view the 50' plasma HDTV & DVD or step out onto the balcony to enjoy the coastal breezes and views. If you need to do business or just want to surf the net we have up graded our wireless to a cable high speed modem. No need to go to lobby to get internet service!

The fully equipped kitchen with granite counters and bar area allows one to dine in if they choose.The pub style table allows additional seating for 2-4 people for dining or playing games together. We have even installed a top of the line water filtration system and installed a very quiet dishwasher.

In the master bedroom you will find a king bed with an upgraded deluxe $3000.00 comfort mattress and Barbados designer bed linens that speaks luxury--inviting you to settle in for the evening to view the 26' plasma TV or prepare to get a restful nights sleep.

The bunk room also has upgraded mattresses and a full closet, so it is very fitting for utilization by adults. An extra privacy door has been added to this room as well. Both bathrooms are very roomy with the bathroom attached to the bunk room housing the full standard washer and dryer, not the normal baby condo style, to do those quick loads of beach towels, etc.

Should you need a photographer to capture some great memories we also have a recommendation for a gentleman who has taken some great family photos for us.

Come enjoy a dream vacation at a competitive price when you rent this user friendly luxury condo!

About David Kessler

We are Dave & Marge Lewis from Big Rapids Michigan. We love being right on the beach with the view of the blue waters and white sand from our condo. The condo was not decorated for renting, it was done the same way we have done our home in Michigan. You will not find another condo at Shores of Panama any nicer than ours. Unlike many condo units we have heard about and seen, the kitchen is stocked with most everything you would need to prepare things for you and your family.

So if you are looking for a great place to stay and a place you will hate to leave, then our condo is for you. We hope you enjoy your stay and please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.

David Kessler purchased this condo in 2008

Why David Kessler chose Shores of Panama

We chose this location as a great location for year round use. Panama City has everything a bigger city has to offer without being so big you cannot get from one place to another. It has the best sand beaches we have found anywhere. After staying at the Shores of Panama we found we did not want to stay anywhere else.

What makes this condo unique

You will love the 'resort' pool! It does not have the feel or look of a standard condo pool. It does have the look and feel of a great resort. We have stayed in several condos over the years and nothing has compared to what we have at the Shores of Panama. Our condo is done in such a way that you will not want to leave when the time comes and we have had several people who have extended their stay when we did not have someone coming right in behind them. So ENJOY! :)

Amazing location for Ironman Florida. Everything was great except for Wireless Internet access which was pretty bad. Had to use my 3G cell phone the entire week.

Beautiful Beaches

  • 3 of 5
This condo was nice basically as advertised. I had a couple of issues and felt that I didn't get the best service. The unit was not as clean as I would have expected for the amount paid for cleaning fee. The shower curtains in both bathrooms were mildewed, and it seems no one checks to see if light bulbs need replaced, no additional bulbs are kept in the unit. Had a problem connecting to WIFI, after texting the owner/manager a couple of times he finally called me back to try to figure out the problem, when we could not figure out why it would not work, he was going to send someone the next day. I had to have internet for school assignments (this was a condition I searched for before renting) My husband finally located the problem in the wiring and we fixed it on our own.
This is one of the problems when owners do not have anyone locally to help with maintenance and upkeep.
The $25 per day fee is a bit steep for what the facility offers. The pool and landscaping are very nice, but not worth $25.00 per day. The hot tub did not have very powerful jets, you could barely feel anything. Without paying the $25.00 daily feel to use the facilities you also can not get in and out to the beach unless you walk 1/4 mile to the nearest public access.
The beaches were absolutely beautiful.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry about the internet. The building was contracted with a new provider and was switching over all the units when you where renting from us. I have 2 local people that can take care of anything that I need them to do. But no one from your party said there was dirty shower curtains or bad light bulbs. I am sorry that the grounds where not to what it was worth to you. The shores charges the fee not the owner. If you had issues with the hot tubs that should of been addressed at the front desk. The walk way to the public beach is not 1/4 mile away it right next to the building. Its a path way for Pineapple Willies and Laketown Warf. I hope your experience is much better at the next rental.

Condo itself is terrific. The building is the problem.

  • 3 of 5
First, I want to be very clear that the owners of this particular unit take very good care of it. The condo itself was terrific. We enjoyed staying in it and the problems we encountered were all outside of their control.

The building: Maintenance is lacking here. We found the elevators to be the biggest problem during our stay. Being on the 19th floor, this is extremely frustrating. We found ourselves using the stairs for a large portion of our stay. There aren't enough elevators for this structure. The wait for one can take as long as 20 minutes. Many times, the elevator finally arrived on our floor (after a wait), just to be too full to accept any more passengers. One elevator we attempted to use wouldn't leave the ground floor. With only three or four people in it, there seemed to be an issue with the sensor thinking it was over weight.

Parking: There are plenty of parking spaces in their garage, but it's difficult to get into and out of. The aisle to drive is too narrow in many places causing backups for cars waiting for other cars to move. The spaces were fairly narrow, too, so maneuvering in and out of spots was difficult, though not impossible.

The pool: We paid the mandatory fee (can't remember the exact dollar amount -- roughly $50 each) for wrist bands that are required at this facility. You must have them to access the pool and, dare I say, their gym (gasp...that's a stretch). Nobody checks so most people don't wear them. Having stayed at other locations, I found this to be quite expensive for what little you get. There are too many units for the size pool here, too. We found it very crowded most of the day. A couple positives here: the little cabana food hut was a nice thing and it was fairly reasonable. There was a bar open too but not all the time. Seemed like when we would have enjoyed using it, it was closed. But it was there, none the less. There are also activities going on for the kids. We didn't partake but things like temporary tattoos and crafts were there -- a nice touch.

Beach access: You'll need a wrist band to get back into the pool area from the beach. Don't forget your band!

Again, the owners of the unit should be commended for what they have and how well they keep it. It's unfortunate to be housed in such a crummy facility. We won't be back.

The facility was extememly nice ..especially for Panama City! Rooms and view was amazing! I will say we were disappointed with the additional cost for access to pool and beach after the money we had already spent! Didn't like the fact there were no coolers allowed in the pool area nor an ice machine anywhere in the resort!

Condo was as the title stated....Very nice.

  • 3 of 5
I cannot say enough kind words about the owner of the condo, he was great. The interior of the condo was very nice as advertised....the furnishings and the view were great and it was very clean.

My disappointment in the trip was with the management of the property. Waiting on the elevators was ridiculous and we were told that 2 of them were disabled and they were not fixed the entire week we were there. I plan my vacations to relax, not to wait up to an hour or more for an elevator. Because of the elevator issue I took the stairs quite frequently up and down from the 19th floor and they were in desperate need of cleaning and painting.

The amenities fee is a little ridiculous also as it was nearly impossible to find a spot at the pool, but to be fair I did know about this fee before I leased the room. If you prefer to lay on the beach as I do, I suggest avoiding the amenities fees and finding a different path to the beach.

I would definitely rent from the same owner again but more than likely not at this facility.
