Panama City Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

This new condo has been outfitted with upscale furnishings only fitting for such a luxury resort as the Shores of Panama. 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. 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.

Should you need a photographer to capture some great memories we also have a recommendation for a gentleman who has taken some great family photos for us.

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! :)

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.

Shore of Panama over the years 2010-2015

  • 4 of 5

Just to clarify: Re the "resort" - an individual company bought a number of units a couple years back, have many votes on owners board, and also condos have an arrangement to let company run the pools, spa & beach access as a CLUB - hence the extra fees. Not all owners agree. There remain a few issues such as the elevators (dates back to the first owners) and the weather affects the elevators - as well as fog sets off the fire alarms at times. The access path by Pineapple Willies has been closed and gated (it is private property) and they have a deal with Laketown Wharf condo renters who use a special passkey now during regular season. Unless you know that code, you have to drive or walk down to the next public access which is either westerly (by Burger King, no parking in their lot ether, they tow) or the eastern end. The condos are beaut0iful inside, deal with owners/mgrs. for any discrepancies promptly and you will enjoy your SOP stays. We have for over 5 years and will return. Renters beware: ask a lot of questions, get it in writing and you will enjoy your fun in the sun.Do not blame any one owner for things out of their control. Enjoy! Be Safe! Winter 2015-2016 is coming..plan now. :-) Sign Me "Retired Snowbirds"

Affordable Stay

  • 4 of 5

Our unit itself and the owner were great. However the overall condo, not so much. The parking is horrible, elevators didn't work half the time an the arm bands are a joke.

Amazing location for Ironman Florida. Everything was great except for Wireless Internet access which was pretty bad. Had to use my 3G cell phone the entire week.
