Portside Resort Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Portside Resort is an established “family friendly” complex with 16 acres of palm trees, 3 swimming pools (one heated for year round swimming), a baby pool, hot tub (also accessible year round), shuffleboard and 3 tennis courts - with easy access to the beautiful, white sandy beach across the street. Great for walking, riding bikes throughout the tropical condo area.

It is located on the desirable west end of Panama City Beach, only 15 minutes from our new international airport. It is within 3 miles of Pier Park with all its specialty shops, Grand Theater, and restaurants overlooking the gulf. Frank Brown Park is minutes away with its own huge pool, tennis courts, baseball and softball fields and lots of walking trails. Two four star restaurants are within 2 miles, with great seafood! McDonalds, Winn Dixie, and Walmart are just a few minutes away. Also close are: golf courses, miniature golf, Gulf World, Zoo World, Wonder Works and Ripley's Believe It Or Not. You can rent scooters, jet skis or go parasailing if you wish. Also, Sandestin with it’s famous outlet mall is 30 minutes away.

G-5 (our unit) is located in the middle of the complex, between the tennis courts and the back pool. It has the advantage of being a little more quiet than the front area, and still within easy walking distance to the beach. The patio faces a beautiful lagoon with the back pool on the other side of it.

Our Master Bedroom has a queen bed with a private balcony; the second bedroom has two twin beds. Both rooms have their own TVs. The full bath adjoins both rooms, with a separate vanity in the Master suite. The large first floor living area opens onto a patio, and has a pull out sofa, dining seating for 6, a breakfast bar, and a fully furnished kitchen with microwave, blender, icemaker, and coffee maker. There is a TV w DVD and cable, and high speed internet w WiFi. The whole downstairs is set up for family fun and games, as well as easy access to food!

We are pet friendly (for a well-behaved pet up to 30 lbs). We invite you to come and bring your family for a truly memorable vacation. There is certainly something here for everyone! This is a non-smoking unit. Smoking is only allowed outside on the patio area.

I am from Bowling Green, KY, where I am a retired nurse and full time real estate investor. I love to play bridge and spend time with my 3 daughters and their families, who live nearby.. We have a lake within 30 miles of us, but no sandy beach or sunsets over the ocean.

We enjoy great times in PCB at Portside and we hope that you will take the opportunity to share our little piece of paradise.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Our family has been vacationing on the Emerald Coast for years and I purchased this unit when SouthWest flights made it very affordable and easy to get here. I love having the pools and kiddie pool within walking distance, and the easy access to beautiful white beaches.

The new shopping mall, Pier Park, is just minutes away. It has incredible shopping and dining opportunities.

There is a wonderful homemade doughnut shop just down the road that is too, too good, but you have to get there early!

My very favorite thing is to curl up with a good book by the pool with the waterfall and watch the fun.

We love that the unit is in walking distance to the beach...no need to start the car. Also love to sit on the couch, or be at the dining table and look out at the lagoon and the luscious landscaping through the sliding glass doors. Or better, to have meals on that patio in the shaded beauty of Florida palms.

The new airport is only 15 minutes away. We have all the comforts of home right here waiting! There are lots of things to do and to discover while you are here...or you can truly relax and just enjoy the sun, sparkling waters of the Gulf and the white sandy beaches.

JULY 4TH HOLIDAY AT THE BEACH

  • 4 of 5
Really enjoyed our stay. I had never been on the beach on July 4th. The fireworks where great. Enjoyed the condo and Barbara was great to work with. Also enjoyed the keypad for the door. Don't know how many times the key could have been lost when you have 2 teenage grandsons going and coming. Of course they really loved the Wi-Fi.(What teenager could leave home without it.) The weather was great and I being a grandmother really enjoyed the back pool. It was (most of the time) quite and relaxing.
Hope to stay again and bring grandpa...

JUST RIGHT

  • 5 of 5
My son and I rented this condo for springbreak w/ some of his friends. The pools were nice and the location was great. It was away from the craziness of the strip but convenient to Pier Park. The beach was just short walk across the street. The condo was very clean. Barbara was easy to deal with, responsive, and returned our deposit right away. Definitely would use again.

GREAT FAMILY SPOT

  • 4 of 5
We went down for a baseball tournament. The condo is very close to the ball park, away from all the congestion of the strip but not too far away. The condo is in walking distance to the beach and pools. All in all a great family place to stay. The complex has a "quiet time" of 11:00 pm so it is not very loud at night. My only suggestion would be to add mattress toppers to the beds, they were a little harder than what we are used to. The property owner was great. Responded quickly and returned the security deposit promtply. Thank you!

WOW!!! SO MUCH FUN! GREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Portside and once again we had a wonderful visit! We are a family of five and we fit here very nicely. The condo had everything we needed. We loved the keyless entry . . . not having to drag the key around each time we headed out. The beach was beautiful . . . we were a little leary of the weather since tropical storm Karen was brewing . . . but it actually made for a very calm beach scene. The location of the condo is fabulous! It is nestled in so you do not even realize you have people on both sides . . . privacy in the back is truly a bonus. Thanks for another affordable and fun trip!

AMAZING VACATION 2013

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I inquired about the property Barbara was absolutely amazing. The condo was very cozy, furnished with everything you could possibly need. The kids loved the pools. I loved the new Pier Park shops. The best part was the condo was centrally located to everything beach, shopping, restuarant. Thank you so much for sharing your condo. I will definitely go back. Thanks again

BEST LOCATION IN PCB

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great time at Portside! The unit was the perfect size for our family of four and the kitchen was well stocked with plates, glass, silverware, etc. The tennis courts and swimming pools are in great shape. The best feature of this unit is location. It's a short walk to the pools and beach, and I like the privacy of the unit being backed up to the lagoon. Furthermore, Portside is in the most ideal location in Panama City Beach. It's far enough away from the busy "strip" that traffic on the front beach road is light, but it's a short drive to HW 79 which gives you access to HW 98 (the back beach road.) I was pleased to see that the Winn Dixie down the street has been remodeled and upscaled, so that I did not have to drive twenty minutes to the nearest Publix for good groceries. Just a mile to the west is Thomas's doughnuts (the best apple fritters in the world) and a mile to the east is the Sandbar, a good locally owned oyster and seafood restaurant. My only constructive criticism is that we found a few detail cleaning issues when we arrived (dirty corners and a nasty smelling air freshener in the downstairs bathroom) but not so much that it bothered us. The mattresses are firm, but I like a firm mattress and we all slept well. The owner was very communicative, helpful and prompt with our deposit refund. We had an excellent time and would definitely return!
