Thomas Drive Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1.5 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


It is one of the NICEST units in Shores of Panama. It has been professionally decorated with beautiful furniture and beautiful colors. Why stay in a condo with white walls and bland furniture? We have installed new flooring throughout. We removed all the old dirty carpet.

We also installed a high capacity front loading washer and dryer for your convenience. Believe me it will come in handy on week stays. The washer that comes in most of the units at the resort will only hold 2 beach towels. Ours will hold 6 giving you more time on the beach instead of working in the condo. And since it’s a front loader, drying time is cut in half after washing a load.

This unit comes with its own reserved parking spot in the most convenient location on the 2nd floor garage and is conveniently located close to the least busy elevator. Elevator is only 10 feet away from the entry to the room. We have another condo 3 floors below and can accommodate a group of two families.

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

Our bunk beds are in a separate room with door for privacy. Many bunk rooms are open to the kitchen or living room without a door. We even upgraded the bunk mattresses.

Our master bedroom has a king size bed. We installed a door going into the master bath for your privacy. Many units do not have this door.

Our living room has a sofa and with a queen pull out with an upgraded mattress. We also have a large LR chair with a single pull out.

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!!

We are located on the 16th floor. 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!!!

About Stephanie Crosby

We love our condos at Shores of Panama and go every chance we get. It is the best resort in Panama City Beach!!!

Stephanie Crosby purchased this condo in 2007

Why Stephanie Crosby chose Panama City Beach

The convenience is fantastic, and no walk over to get to condo. We grew up going to PC and think it is the most beautiful beach there is!!!

What makes this condo unique

One of the nicest units in Shores of Panama..Inquire early. We don't require you to wait in line for keys like others. We use a touch pad on the door to gain access to the condo, so no keys to keep up with during your stay.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our daughter to the beach for her 3rd birthday. The condo was great! Plenty of room and we loved the giant pool and the beach was beautiful. The condo property was very well kept and clean. We will book again on our next trip to PCB! Owners are very friendly and quick to respond. Loved the reserved parking. Both the parking spot and condo are close to the elevators, which is a huge plus! Thanks again for everything!

Stay Here! You'll Really Enjoy It!

  • 5 of 5

I've never rented from an individual like this, but this place was such a deal for how awesome it looked online that I just had to give it a try. Let me tell you: I found our regular vacation rental for years to come.

Here are the things I love the most about this condo:

1- The owner is responsive

2- Its just plain comfortable

3- No carpet, thank God!

4- The balcony provides awesome views

5- Location, location, location. If you need it, it's close-by.

6- Beach chair rentals, parasailing, jetskis, banana boat, etc right on the beach

7- Full-sized washer and dryer!

8- Family oriented

Our vacation plan was: Go grocery shopping the first night, and not leave the resort unless we were going to dinner or putt-putt or something.

Mission: Accomplished!

This condo has it ALL! The parking spot is very close to the elevators and on a lower floor of the parking garage (trust me, this is a huge plus). The room is also just off the elevators; super handy. When we got there, one of our kids exclaimed, "Even the ceiling fan is beautiful!" The condo is gorgeous, well-kept, clean, and has an open and airy feel to it. The balcony has just enough breeze coming by that its perfect for morning coffee with your sweetie and a few beverages with friends in the evening. While this is a high-rise, the beach really isn't terribly busy. Its very nice to have the pool just steps away. The resort is pretty happening until about 10 pm, but the hurricane glass windows and door block out most of the sound (i.e.- we had no probs getting kids to bed by 9). Hands down the best vacation we've had in a long time. I can't wait to stay here next year! Thank you again, Stephanie for letting us use your beautiful vacation home.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the resort very much, the pool was very nice and clean and pretty at night to look at. Location is good as everything is around and you can walk to different shops. We went on Memorial weekend (May 25-30 which was very very hectic and lots of college kids so therefore it was very crowed. The only complaint i would say was the elevator due to the congestion of people, it got stuck several times and my daughter freaked out and was scared to go on it so she went the stairs and we were on the 16th floor. We didn't get to eat at Pineapple Willy's like we wanted to as the wait time was 1.5 hours so we decided to walk to apple bees which was a mile but still good. The condo was clean, nice balcony with chairs and table to sit . The owner took care of the parking problem when we first got there as someone had stolen are spot and she called a tow truck very quickly. I would stay again but most likely at a different time frame possibly late September or in October as they say it slows down. If i stay again during a busy season , i would probably go lower floors. The waters were very beautiful and everything is very accessible there , jet skis, banana boats, etc. I would stay again .
