About Todd Russell

What can I say? We just LOVE to vacation at the beach as often as possible!! That's why we purchased our own beach front condo!!

Todd Russell purchased this condo in 2007

Why Todd Russell chose Panama City Beach

Shores of Panama is located right on the beach in the heart of the strip. We enjoy being able to walk to Pineapple Willy's as well as other attractions and dining options in the vicinity. Also tons of fun things to do in the area include: Shopping, Mini Golf, GoKarts, Scooter Rentals, Arcades, Waterparks, Ripley's Believe it or not and the new Wonderworks, Walmart is just across the street and did I mention Pineapple Willy's? And yes, you have a perfect view overlooking the famous pier house restaurant right from the condo!! It's right on on the beach beside the resort.

What makes this condo unique

You're swimming in Florida's most beautiful beach one minute, then jumping into PCB's largest free-form swimming pool the next. Two incredible hot tubs to enjoy and then you are off to the indoor pool when you've finally had way too much sun!! You'll also enjoy a lot of R&R out on the balcony with an incredible view from this 17th floor prime location. Now that's what I call vacation!!

Just Right

  • 4 of 5

The studio was just right for our family's few days away at the beach. Since it was a studio, we missed having a closet, but we came prepared and all was well. The elevator created a long wait, but in a busy season, I guess it is to be expected. The view of the beach from the studio balcony was beautiful, and Todd Russell was great to work with. He gave us tips on parking in the garage that made check-in easier.

Sister's 50th Birthday Celebration!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for helping us full-fill my sister’s 50th birthday trip to your beautiful studio condo! We enjoyed every minute of it! We certainly did our share of enjoying the sun and sand. We spent a lot of time on the balcony enjoying the awesome view, which by the way, your pictures just do not do justice on how beautiful the view really is.

We also enjoyed that big screen TV watching some of our old time favorite movies!! We will definitely be back!!

Honeymoon getaway

  • 5 of 5

This studio was great for a nice getaway to the beach. The Shores of Panama was beautiful and very well maintenanced. You have to pay to use all the amenities, but well worth it. It's pay per day, per condo. The outdoor pool and hot tub looked like our resort in Jamaica. We couldn't use the outdoor pool d/t weather (went in February 2016), but the indoor pool was great. Also used the steam room and sauna! The studio was clean, had some card games and movies there. The bed was a little worn in, but slept ok. Also, there's no closet - but that's OK. Just lived out of the suitcase! Great place to stay. Yes we'd come back! And the owner was very kind over his emails. You could tell he took pride in his condo - so we could trust that! Thanks so much ;)
