About Jill Dunnivant

Jill and Sharon grew up in Franklin, Pennsylvania, and have been friends since they were 6 years old (a very long time!). They moved here to Panama City Beach to get away from cold winters and to enjoy the beautiful beaches.

Jill Dunnivant purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jill Dunnivant chose Florida Panhandle

We invested in Emerald Beach Resort because we like the location and we think it's a great resort. We personally decorated our condo and have managed it since it was completed in the spring of 2007.

What makes this condo unique

Not only is the resort right on the beach with a gorgeous view, pools, hot tubs, exercise room, Starbucks, Tiki Bar, etc., but everything you need is close by. You can even walk to restaurants, shopping, and several activities such as mini-golf, an arcade, and go-carts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for such an awesome vacation! The condo was great and more than we could have asked for. You will hear from us again, and we will recommend your condo to friends and family.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo. Everything was nice and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast and sitting on the balcony every morning was a calm and relaxing way to start our day. The included beach chairs were wonderful and made our trip to the beach much easier since we didn't have to carry our own chairs. I liked how this condo was close enough to the elevators, but far enough away to not hear them. Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful condo!

Clean, convenient, & just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week here! This property is very clean, which is a top priority for me. There were so many great restaurants and fun things to do with our 2 year old within a few blocks...including the onsite kid pool! Wi-if and everything you need to cook in the kitchen was a bonus. Excellent views for the 4th fireworks. Owners were helpful & easily available.

Little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location to relax and forget about your worries for a little while. The view from the balcony is spectacular whether watching for dolphins, parasailers, the evening 'crab hunters', or an approaching tropical system. The condo accommodations were great. Beach access couldn't be easier and having the beach chairs and umbrella were a plus. Very easy to set up reservations. Excellent place to come for a weekend or longer if you can stay!

This condo was great and Jill was fabulous to work with! We had so much fun and enjoyed staying at Emerald Beach!

Our condo was very nice! It was spacious and had everything we needed for a home away from home! We hope to be able to come back next year if not before!

Wonderful Girls Weekend!

Thank you Jill.

Our condo is directly on the Gulf of Mexico in Panama City Beach on the Florida panhandle. The resort is centrally located within driving distance from most of the central/eastern United States. Our beach is known for its beautiful white sand and emerald green waters, but there are many things to do besides relaxing on the World's Most Beautiful Beaches. There is an abundance of water sports and other activities for all ages, along with shopping, dining, and nightclubs. Take a dolphin watching cruise to Shell Island, Parasail or jet ski right at the condo, or play miniature golf nearby. Enjoy one of the championship golf courses, or take the family bowling, roller skating, or to play pool at Rock It Lanes. There are many local festivals including Oktoberfest and the Music and Wine Festival. For music lovers, there are free summer concerts in the parks, including Pier Park less than a mile away, and local musicians play at many of the beach restaurants and night clubs. Also, a new, awesome restaurant, Runaway Island, is a short walk away, right on the beach.

Other Activities: Wonder Works, Shipwreck Island Water Park, Zoo World, Gulf World Marine Park, Ripley's Believe It or Not, Wineries, Bowling, Go-Karts, Bungee Rides, Air Boats
