Shores of Panama Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Shores of Panama Unit 1918, reserved parking. WHAT IS GREAT ABOUT OUR UNIT? It is one of the NICEST units in Shores of Panama.

Parking is on beach side with elevator close to unit, no long walking when you are in a hurry.

Our master bedroom has a large king size bed with upgraded mattress that is very comfortable. Read our reviews to see what others have said about it. Second bedroom has queen size bed and very comfortable.

Our living room has a sofa and with a queen pull out with an upgraded mattress pad for it. This is an Interior Designer's personal condo furnished with upscale decor with comfort in mind. You have to visit with us at least once!! You will want to come back to The Shores of Panama often. Not your average rental condo!!

located on the 19th floor (what a VIEW). Attention to detail is top priority to make your stay like home. The Shores of Panama has fun children's activities, dive-in movies etc. The pool is approximately 18,000 sq. feet with 468 feet of gulf frontage. There is also an indoor heated pool, workout room, and rentable banquet space for large groups. Absolutely the BEST!!! Come see us soon, we take great pride in our units and stay in them often!!!

Guestbook comments from the manager
Good morning Sondra, we once again wanted to thank you for the use of your lovely condo. It is so much prettier than the pictures and I thought those were lovely. The noise was almost unreal at times but you did warn us it was spring break. My husband did as you suggested and undid the door bell but I wanted to tell you we forgot to hook it back up. It sure helped after the first night of those unruly kids ringing it all the time. We cannot believe the actions of some of these college kids, its like someone let them out of jail. But again, you gave us warning, next year we will take your advice and go after April 10th. Dex got the most beautiful picture from your balcony of the moon shining down on the water, he said he'll send it to you if you like. Our son Ryan, who we told you about, is off to the Air Force sure got to relax before his deployment. We so appreciate your military discount and your love for the military. Have a great summer and we will be calling again. Much love, Mary and Dex

We LOVE the ocean. Ever since we honeymooned in the Virgin Islands, we've been going back to vacation as often as we can to a place with a beach and ocean. As our family grew, we found Panama City Beach to be a perfect place and not have to go out of the country. There was no question, we had to invest in our own 'beach house.' We hope you'll enjoy all that Shores of Panama has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too! Sondra and Ralph, Illinois.

Sondra purchased this condo in 2009

I walked into this unit and fell in LOVE after looking at 23 other units on other properties, I could not wait to make an offer. We fell in love with Shores of Panama the minute we saw the brochure! What's not to like about the huge pool, tiki bars, live entertainment and kids activities! But we also feel like we got the best location & unit plan (J), only 23 of these in the building. Our unit is conveniently located on the 19th floor. It is close to the elevators (no walking half way around the building carrying beach equipment, groceries etc). It also offers a gorgeous and unobstructed view of the ocean. The interior is very nicely decorated, and offers everything that one would need while staying on your family vacation. Too many extras to mention here...

We love walking the beach and going in the crystal blue ocean. The sunsets are amazing and if your an early bird so are the sun rises.

What a great place and location!

  • 5 of 5
Coming to this condo was like staying with friends. The unit was spotless and decorated in a very homey way - not like many of the stark and disappointing rentals I've stayed at. The place had many small touches that exuded warmth and welcome. The Shores has a great pool and is steps away from the beach. February can be iffy weather wise so it's great to have a comfy place to ride out the nasty days. There is great eating walking distance away - Pineapple Willy's for food, drinking and dancing and Dee's Kitchen for the best Cajun this side of New Orleans. Sondra was very helpful and responsive during booking and staying making it an easy and pleasant rental experience. Highly recommended without hesitation!

Wonderful Condo

We had a wonderful stay at the Shores. The condo was perfect. Loved the lay out. Great view from the 19th floor. The owner was excellent to work with, answering everything we needed. Would stay there again.

A word of warning

  • 1 of 5
My friends and I chose to use rent through Sondra based on the good reviews so I feel as though I should put a word of warning out to those using reviews for the same reason.

On a positive note, The unit was nice and the view was awesome. Although the elevators in the building are very busy and we had to take the stairs a lot, this unit is located very close to one, so when they weren't busy, it was convenient. The rooms were a good size and having a dishwasher was handy.
The problems began after we went to .a paint party on our final night of the stay, which resulted in a FEW bath towels being stained. As far as we knew, this was the only damage done. A week after our stay, Sondra informed me that of the security deposit (which was increased due to spring break time), we were getting only a small portion back.. The cleaning crew claimed there was a stain on one of the sheets (this may or may not have been true) which required them to order a new set. They also claimed they needed to replace EVERY towel, hand towel, and wash cloth, which is FAR from what was damaged.

All this being said, we simply asked for a receipt of this order as proof that we were indeed being charged what was spent. After over a month of waiting, this is the exact reply that I got from Sondra, "First let's get something straight. The (money-VBRO won't let me write an amount) is not a fine. (money) went into this unit after your departure for towels, hand towels and master bed sheets. I do not have to show you anything but offered to do so. My housekeeping has all my receipts and as you can imagine they are very busy turning over condo cleanings on a daily basis. I will not keep bugging them for this receipt. I trust them and have for years so until things calm down and they are focused on their bookkeeping I will not force this on them. I charged you (money) for replacements not fines so please just move on."

Unless you are okay with doing business with someone who does not feel they are required to show you proof of purchases should something occur, I would not recommend renting with Sondra.

Owner's Response: I am sorry this guest felt to try and destroy my reputation of excellent reviews and very happy guest, a lot of repeat guest at that. Since 2009 I have only kept one security deposit until this guest arrived. Spring breakers do not care if they destroy your property and can't understand when they do why they have to pay for replacements. What this guest is not telling you, I gave her the benefit of doubt. I ask her what happen to all my linens, she freely admitted going to a paint party. As anyone can imagine "a paint party" is just that PAINT. All linens were no longer white but a dirty amber color. These all had to be replaced and replaced quickly.

On another note what this guest does not mention is when I ask her what happened to one of the pull out beds she had no clue, said she didn't use it. Owners are not stupid. She asked for 10 wristbands. In order to use 10 wristbands, you have to have 10 people and use the pull out. She lied about that also.

I gave her back 1/3 of her damage deposit and if I had known about the pull out in time she would not have gotten that. Again, this bad review is from a spring breaker that does not have respect for one's property. I do have pictures of all linens and the pull out. Sondra

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from Panama City Beach. This was our family's first trip to Panama City Beach, and I did a lot of research because I wanted it to be a good one. I found this unit listed on Facebook, and from the moment I saw the pictures I knew this is where we should go. I contacted Sondra, and she took care of everything. We could not have been any happier with the room, it was very tastefully decorated. It was very warm and inviting. It is so nice to go away from home and be in such a wonderful setting, and still feel the touches of home. Te resort was fantastic. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the pool was Beautiful! With the younger kids we actually spent more time in the pool than on the beach! :-) There was very little wait for the elevators, some people complain about that, but we didn't experience it. Pineapple Willy's was great we ate there twice. I would highly recommend seeing the Sunset from their back deck, it is like nothing I have ever seen. Thanks again Sondra!

This is a luxury condo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this unit from jan 15 - feb 15. The condo is beautiful, with massive wood furniture throughout, silk flower arrangements in every room and lots of storage space everywhere. Nothing is lacking for an extended stay. We were here in the cool, quiet season, so it was very peaceful. If you want to use the gorgeous outdoor pool, or frollick in the gulf, don't come in jan or feb, as it is very cool! But we made good use of the indoor pool and jaccuzi. If you are afraid of heights, it might be an issue for you here, but everyone else will enjoy the spectacular views from the balcony, and all the outside corridors around the complex. The grounds are meticulously maintained, and the staff is friendly and helpful. This condo is conveniently located near the elevators, and the sun hits the balcony from noon till sunset. We would highly recommend Shores of Panama, and this condo in particular to anyone interested.

Owner's Response: Oh Gino thank you for such a lovely review. You were just a pleasure to work with, sorry the weather wasn't warmer for you but this winter got a little cold. I really hope to have you back as my guest in the near future. It has been my pleasure to have such wonderful guest.
