Family vacation fun is spelled S-P-L-A-S-H! There is something for everyone at our new 15th floor beachfront condominium, overlooking one of Florida's Top 10 Beaches (according to The Travel Channel). View breathtaking sunsets on the Gulf from our balcony, explore the miles of pristine white sandy beaches, and take in all the Emerald Coast has to offer. Enjoy the beautiful area golf courses or some of the finest saltwater fishing available anywhere.

There is no other place like it in Panama City Beach. Splash has been featured in several magazines including the June 2008 issue of 'Southern Living.' The June 2007 'Florida Travel & Lifestyles' ranks Splash in their list of top 15 new beach resorts. Their August 2007 issue names Splash among the top 15 luxury family vacation spots. It's a place where Mom and Dad can soak up the sun, stretch out in velvety white sand and smell the salty breeze, while the kids are busy having the time of their lives. Splash offers two distinctive water park environments and even an arcade! There are waterslides, a game room, water cannon, inner tubes, day camps and more fun in one place than any kid could ever hope for!

About Chip and Karen Wood

Chip and Karen Wood are a 60-ish couple who live in South Carolina, happily married for 40+ years. They have two adult children, seven grandchildren and enjoy traveling and outdoor activities.

Chip and Karen Wood purchased this condo in 2007

Why Chip and Karen Wood chose Florida Panhandle

The beach! The quality of Panama City Beach- the fine white sand, the warm, phenomenally emerald green gulf water- all within a day's drive of our home. We have visited many beaches, but have found none that compare. Well, maybe Maui, of course!

What makes this condo unique

From our balcony we routinely see dolphins, sting rays, and schools of fish. Because we are on the 15th floor, the noise from below is muffled- drowned out by the surf. We are close enough to the more heavily trafficked part of the beach to be able to enjoy all PCB has to offer, yet far enough away to avoid the crowd.

First time staying at splash

  • 5 of 5

This condo was neat and nicely furnished with everything we needed. We loved the splash pad for the little ones and the lazy river for our 10 year old. We would stay again!!

Perfect Place to Stay with Children

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the Splash Resort for a few years and this was by far the best! Great 15th floor location overlooking the emerald green water of Panama City Beach. This condo is spacious and well maintained! If you have children this is the place to stay! The amenities are endless! From the Splash pad to the covered Splash bucket and slides! We will be returning next year! Thanks again!!!!

Beware....

  • 1 of 5

I personally spoke to Karen (the owner) on multiple occasions regarding our stay. The first conservation being that the condo was listed as a 2 bedroom and 7 occupants. We had 6 adults and 2 children (toddlers). Karen recommended using an air mattress in the master bedroom to accommodate the children. This sounded like a great idea so I booked the condo and bought air mattress. We arrived on check day June 25th at 5:00pm (check in was 4:00pm). We got to the 5th floor after 12 hours in the car with 2 cranky toddlers to find out our room was just starting to be cleaned! It was extremely hot outside and we had already hauled all of our luggage up to the 5th floor after waiting 25 minutes for an elevator. The housekeepers were rude and the condo was a disaster! I called Karen and told her about the situation. She informed me they were cleaning as fast as they could and we could go stay somewhere else and would even refund us! REALLY?!?!? We just drove 12 hours with 2 kids and it's dinner time but sure let me go find another condo in PCB last minute...no problem! We obviously waited and finally started unpacking and begin to realize how filthy the place was. There were stains on the couch, sand in the pull out couch along with m&ms and crayons. The sheets that people were suppose to sleep on were also folded up with sand all over them. The main balcony door would not open, there was no shower curtain in the master to keep water from spilling out during showers, NO blankets for the pull out couch or beds (only comforters on the bed, they were gross), sand all over the floor, washing machine was missing a vital knob to change temperature, only enough towels for 1 person a day (this was with my kids sharing), the carpet in the master was dirty, we had a half roll of towel they left from the previous occupants (thankfully we brought our own), air conditioning would not go below 76 degress, etc. I called Karen who had houskeeping come back to reclean the room (this lasted until about 10pm), the housekeeper went to walmart to by extra sheets for the pull out couch (these were the sand covered ones) and 2 blankets. The maintenence didn't come until the next day to fix balcony door and air conditioning. We had to go 3 different times to meet maintenance in the room to fix these things. We asked for a refund of 2 nights and cleaning fee. We were told we would get one night minus the fee for the 8th person (the toddler, after we were told it was ok)! Stay Away!

Owner's Response: Kim, I would like to respond to your review. Upon your first phone call to me regarding the condo not being ready at your arrival I immediately contacted the housekeeping manager. She came herself as quickly as she could to the condo and discussed all complaints with you and agreed to totally clean the condo to your satisfaction. She also purchased blankets at that time. I continued to check on the progress and did my best to make sure things were to your satisfaction. In our conversation about the refund, I suggested if you wanted to get a refund because of your dissatisfaction I would being willing to do whatever you wished to make your stay in Florida the best I could. By no means did I take anything you said lightly. I was trying to do whatever would please you. The balcony door & air conditioner - This was the first we had heard of this. The previous family did not let us know it would not open nor had any complaints about the air conditioner. We called maintenance immediately. They came that night to check on the problems. The AC was repaired that first evening and the door was repaired the following morning. There are two doors to the balcony so you still had access to the balcony until repairs were made the next morning. On Tuesday we wrote and offered to pay for your family to have dinner at our expense. You did not respond to our offer. We did refund you the complete one night’s stay and did not deduct anything from that amount. After the initial check-in issues were corrected we did not hear back from you and assumed you were enjoying the rest of your stay at our condo in Florida. I am truly sorry that upon your arrival things were not as they should have been and I did everything I could to accommodate your family for your vacation. My desire for every guest that stays at our condo is to have a wonderful, fun-filled vacation. I too, understand the disappointment when things are not as expected but I believe things were corrected promptly and hopefully after the first few hours you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Karen

Best Family Vacation We Have Ever Had!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with two preschoolers and one 8 year old. The amenities in this resort blew us away! And so did the view! The condo was clean, comfortable and well decorated. We didn't spend much time in there bc there was so much to do! When you have small kids sometimes a vacation just means moving the chaos to a new location but not at Splash. The kids were so entertained by the splash yard, pools, lazy river, arcade, and the beautiful and clean sandy beach. We never heard the words.."I'm bored". I wish we had found this place when our kids were smaller and we hope to return again. The owners are amazing and so easy to work with. Don't miss out on this one!

Best Stay Ever in PCB!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here over spring break and truly enjoyed our week. The condo is perfect -- spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and well maintained. The owners were also a pleasure to work with during the initial planning and booking of the stay, as well as during our weeklong stay there. The condo, itself, has the perfect layout for a family of 4, as it includes an oversized master with master bath on one end of the unit; and a sizable secondary bedroom with its own large secondary bathroom. The unit is also very conveniently located to the elevator, so you do not have to carry beach items for miles after exiting the elevator. As for the unit's interior, you can tell that the owners have gone above and beyond to create a well-appointed yet comfortable vacation property for their guests. Both the master and secondary room have televisions, so the children can watch TV in the evening in the guest bedroom before bedtime. Even the bed linens were nice and soft, unlike some rental properties that tend to cut costs on items such as bedding and sheets. The Splash Resort, in general, is a perfect property for families with young children, as it has one of the larger sets of pool amenities I have seen around PCB - multiple pools; a waterslide splash and play area; a lazy river, then a smaller splash pad for toddlers. Splash is also the perfect location for anyone who wants to enjoy a quieter vacation in PCB. Though Splash is only 2 miles from Pier Park, it is one of the last (and possibly last) large properties after passing Pier Park (if you are driving West on Front Beach, away from PCB-center). This means you are close enough to enjoy the fun of Pier Park when you want to, but otherwise - once you pass Pier Park - there is no traffic, no loud crowds, no loud hallways at the property, and much less crowded beachfront during the day. The attractions and restaurants toward Thomas Drive and other places turned out to be less than a 15 min car ride away, as we just took a side road from the Splash parking area to a 4 lane highway - I believe US Hwy 98 - that runs parallel to Front Beach Road. It allows you avoid all of the Front Beach Road traffic. One of our all-time favorite places to eat in PCB is Capt. Anderson's, on the other side - the East end - of PCB, and it took us only 15 or so mins by car to get there via Hwy 98. Perfect family vacation in every way! We had a wonderful time and definitely will stay here again!

Wonderful Family Beach Condo - even off-season

  • 5 of 5

My large family was able to escape down to PCB late fall and found it to be a great time to be there. The condo was wonderful - very clean, updated, and comfortable. We were also easily able to cook a few meals in the condo in the furnished kitchen.

The Splash resort offered lots of activities for my family - many pools, multiple water park options, arcade, and hey - the kids loved the elevator rides as well! Even the Splash resort staff were terrific - and worked hard to keep the entire resort maintained & clean.

There are plenty of dining, grocery, & activities in walking or short-driving distance. We especially loved walking to the vintage Thomas Donut shop down the street. We found the Gulf World Marine Park to be a nice 1/2 day outing as well.

Highly recommend this unit & this property for a small group or large family!
