About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

1-2-2017!!! This condo has been updated in the kitchen, New cabinets, granite counter tops and Stainless steel appliances. This unit has been outfitted with upscale furnishings only fitting for such a luxury resort as the Shores of Panama. The bathrooms have been newly remodeled. The condo's location on the 19th floor allows for a full view of the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the white sand beaches as well as the exotic tropical pool area with its tiki bars, bridges, fountains, hot tubs and zero entry pool. Without leaving the resort you can enjoy the fitness center, steam room, sauna and other spa services as well as the large heated indoor pool. Your rental also comes with a reserved covered parking space. Everything you could want or need off the beach is only a short distance away. We are across the street from Wal-Mart and next door to Pineapple Willy's, a Waffle House and major top-rated restaurants. In addition, you will find a couple of Red Box rental locations, Ripley's Museum, go-carts and other family activities all within walking distance of the condo. Pier Park, a short drive away, offers great shopping, dining and an exciting night life!

The main living area contains custom furniture and has a queen sleeper sofa and a couple of swivel chairs all providing for a truly laid back and relaxing experience. You will find you can kick back in comfort as you view the 50' plasma HDTV & DVD or step out onto the balcony to enjoy the coastal breezes and views. If you need to do business or just want to surf the net we have up graded our wireless to a cable high speed modem. No need to go to lobby to get internet service!

The fully equipped kitchen with granite counters and bar area allows one to dine in if they choose.The pub style table allows additional seating for 2-4 people for dining or playing games together. The kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances, and the cabinets have been resurfaced and updated as well. We have even installed a top of the line water filtration system and installed a very quiet dishwasher.

In the master bedroom you will find a king bed with an upgraded deluxe $3000.00 comfort mattress and Barbados designer bed linens that speaks luxury--inviting you to settle in for the evening to view the 26' plasma TV or prepare to get a restful nights sleep.

The bunk room also has upgraded mattresses and a full closet, so it is very fitting for utilization by adults. An extra privacy door has been added to this room as well. Both bathrooms are very roomy with the bathroom attached to the bunk room housing the full standard washer and dryer, not the normal baby condo style, to do those quick loads of beach towels, etc.

Come enjoy a dream vacation at a competitive price when you rent this user friendly luxury condo!

About David Kessler

We are Dave & Marge Lewis from Big Rapids Michigan. We love being right on the beach with the view of the blue waters and white sand from our condo. The condo was not decorated for renting, it was done the same way we have done our home in Michigan. You will not find another condo at Shores of Panama any nicer than ours. Unlike many condo units we have heard about and seen, the kitchen is stocked with most everything you would need to prepare things for you and your family.

So if you are looking for a great place to stay and a place you will hate to leave, then our condo is for you. We hope you enjoy your stay and please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.

David Kessler purchased this condo in 2008

Why David Kessler chose Panama City Beach

We chose this location as a great location for year round use. Panama City has everything a bigger city has to offer without being so big you cannot get from one place to another. It has the best sand beaches we have found anywhere. After staying at the Shores of Panama we found we did not want to stay anywhere else.

What makes this condo unique

You will love the 'resort' pool! It does not have the feel or look of a standard condo pool. It does have the look and feel of a great resort. We have stayed in several condos over the years and nothing has compared to what we have at the Shores of Panama. Our condo is done in such a way that you will not want to leave when the time comes and we have had several people who have extended their stay when we did not have someone coming right in behind them. So ENJOY! :)

Hurricane Matthew detour turned out perfect!

  • 4 of 5

Condo is absolutely beautiful! The bed is super comfy! We were able to bring our 12 year old pug with us. Sitting on the patio, having coffee with only 3 hours to check out wishing we could stay longer. (Minor flaws: extremely slow ice maker: $2 bags of ice at Walmart which is next door. Check in staff will not win awards for being helpful or friendly: you only need deal with them for 15 minutes)

Owners great to work with but resort has gone downhill

  • 3 of 5

I would rent from these owners again, they were great to work with- responsive and communicated very well. The condo itself was great. I have not stayed at the Shores of Panama in a few years due to the resort charging the daily amenity fees. I love the location of the property and the pool is awesome. I just think the amenity fees are ridiculous on top of what the owners have to charge for rental fees. This will probably be my last visit to the Shores of Panama. Between the staff smoking everywhere in and around the resort, the elevators taking forever (sometimes up to 15-20 minutes and this was AFTER Labor Day) I will spend my money and vacation time elsewhere. Again, I would rent from these owners somewhere else in a second, they were great and none of the other issues at the resort are their fault by any means.

Great location! Overall very nice condo!

  • 4 of 5

The unit overall was very nice! Great location to dining, shopping and night life. Condo is updated with modern furniture and time throughout.The headboard to the master bed was broken and the shower in the master bath did not drain well. Overall we had a great experience. We would definitely visit and stay here again!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home. We loved our vacation everything was wonderful . The elevators could be faster but they were worth the wait. We usually try new places but we would definitely recommend this property.

Property was very nice, could have been cleaner! View was fantastic of pool and ocean!!

  • 3 of 5

The property wasn't as clean as I would have liked. Every time my daughter had her shoes off, her feet became a dirty dark gray on the bottom. There is an obvious drainage issue in the bathrooms. We texted you about the one shower/tub that would not drain at all and we weren't able to use the entire time. However, in the master bath the sink drained very slowly and the toilet acted as if it was going to over flow multiple times, resulting in my husband having to plunge it over and over. The other big issue, (that I detest) all the towels were mildued. Nothing worse than trying to shower and to smell fresh but then you smell like a mildued towel instead. I believe the cause of this problem is having people put the towels in the washing machine (which is black around the door) as they leave and then the next person like us found the towels 8-10 hours later still in there needing to be put in the dryer. Also, the shower curtain had black mildue spots all over it as well.
