About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, Queen Sleeper/Sofa, Twin Bunk Beds w/ Trundle Bed (Sleeps 7)

There is no other place like SPLASH in the Panhandle - with over 400 feet of sugar white sand beaches and tons of amenities. There is no need to leave the resort – everything is right here, or within a couple of miles. SPLASH offers five (5) different water areas, including a Kids' “Waterpark Pool” featuring a giant Tipping Bucket and Waterslides with Interactive Water Toys (water cannons and jets) and climbing nets, a “Lazy River Pool” with a 'Dive-In Movie Theater” where families can watch first-run movies while in or around the pool every evening during the season, a “Toddler Lilly Pad Splash Pool” with rubberized bottom, play animals and water jets; and two “Adult pools”, one adjoining the popular “Hot Tub”! Kids can also enjoy an “Arcade” featuring a mini bowling alley, air hockey, and video games – all right on the premises! The Kids will never want to go home!

And there's fun for the Parents as well, including a state of the art 1,500 square foot Fitness Facility overlooking the Gulf, and a Poolside Bar and Grill (“Riptide”) which serves drinks (both adult and children), snacks and lunch-type food. Two barbecue grill areas with a total of four (4) gas grills are also available to bring dinner back to the condo or eat poolside! There is even an on-site concession for chair and umbrella rentals, jet ski and banana boat rentals, and parasailing. The condo is adjoined to a covered, secure parking garage to park your car, that is attached to via an enclose, air-conditioned walkover to the condo towers, and an on-site Alvin’s Island and a Grocery, Ice Cream and Convenience Shop for any last-minute needs. We are just minutes from the new Pier Park Shopping and Entertainment Complex with tons of restaurants including Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, Back Porch Seafood, Panera’s, and Red Brick Pizza – to name a few. While at Pier Park, enjoy a movie at 16 Grand Theatre which has stadium seating and then indulge in shopping at Dillard’s, Target, JC Penny, Ron Jon Surf shop or any of the other retail and specialty shops. We’re just three blocks from Back Beach Rd (Highway 79) offering quick access to the east end of Panama City Beach, and 20 minutes to Sandestin or 30 minutes to Destin to the west.

SPLASH was rated as one of the “Top Fifteen New Beach Resorts” by Florida Travel & Leisure Magazine!

Experience the relaxing sound of the Gulf of Mexico, the tropical breezes, and spectacular sunsets from the balcony of this beautiful, Brand New, luxury condominium, where the Living Area And Master Bedroom overlook sugar white sand beaches and the beautiful emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Unwind to the sound of the surf, and the smell of the sea - but if you must - stay connected with hi-speed wireless internet service. Unlike many of the units at Splash equipped strictly as rentals – we have furnished our two (2) bedroom and (2) bathroom condo in the manner in which we would enjoy a luxury getaway. And as such, it features high-end furnishings throughout – not the rental packages found in most units at Splash - allowing comfortable accommodations for seven (7) people in the beds provided. Located in the West tower - away from elevator and pedestrian traffic. We're high enough to avoid noise from the pools below, but low enough to clearly see dolphins and sea rays in the Gulf.

BEST LOCATION on Panama City Beach: BEST LOCATION - minutes from Hwy 79, Frank Brown Park & Sports Complex (2.5 miles), the new airport (ECP - North West Florida Beaches International Airport - 11.5 miles) and the new PIER PARK (2.1 miles - 1.2 million sq ft retail and entertainment complex featuring shopping, dining & 16 movie theaters). Located directly on the Beach on the west end of Panama City Beach - away from all of the people, crowds and skyline of condos - yet close to shopping, entertainment and restaurants. Just minutes from the brand new Pier Park entertainment, restaurant and shopping complex, and less than 25 minutes from the Destin Outlets. Overlooking one of Florida's 'Top 10 Beaches' (according to The Travel Channel), there is no other place like Splash. 'Florida Travel & Lifestyles' ranks SPLASH in the 'top 15 new beach resorts' & 'top 15 luxury family vacation spots' & featured in several magazines including 'Southern Living'.

Please come and share with us in a bit of relaxation, family fun and luxury.

Upscale and Fully Equipped: The entertainment units in both the Great Room and Master Bedroom are top-line Broyhill. The contrasting chair in the Great Room is Heritage House. The coffee table features a rattan design with glass top and four (4) chair-height, pull-out stools that store under the glass top - and can also be used for extra seating at the Kitchen table - where eight(8)can sit comfortably. Features include original and limited edition, numbered artwork on the walls, and top-line decorator fans on the ceilings.

The Balcony stretches outside the length of the condo with sliding door access from both the Great Room and Master Bedroom, and features two (2) patio tables (each table with seating for four) and eight (8) patio chairs. The view is incredible – and is matched by all of the amenities offered at Splash.

Front door lock features a push-button combination lock where you can program your own unique 'access' code for your exclusive use during your stay - eliminating the need for a physical key.

Extensive Gourmet Kitchen & Full-size Laundry: Our kitchen table is very roomy, with solid wood construction and a glass top over the wood top for easy clean-up. The table is supplied with six (6) matching chairs – although it can easily seat eight (8). The Kitchen features Granite counters with cherry-finished cabinets and is equipped with beautiful place settings for ten (10), complete top line utensils, coffee maker, electric appliances, cookware, bakeware and storage ware.

In addition to a kitchen equipped with all that you would expect in your own home, we also have many “extras” - including cappuccino maker, electric juicer, electric tea kettle, Panini maker/Grill, and more.

The Laundry features brans new, SAMSUNG full size, XL capacity, High-efficiency, front-load Washer and Dryer, as opposed to the compact, all-in-one stacked washer/dryer combination units found in most units at Splash.

About John Musci

My wife grew up in Sydney, Australia, and I in Ohio - where we now live. We met in Hawaii, and have literally traveled the world and visited some of the finest waters and most beautiful beaches - from Australia, Asia, Europe, Mexico and the Middle East. We've been to beaches in Italy, Greece, the Maldives, and much of the Caribbean - as well as domestic beaches along the Atlantic and Pacific, and throughout the Gulf of Mexico. In all of our travels, we still think Panama City Beach is one of the most beautiful, easy to get to and affordable beaches anywhere. We wanted an affordable place that we could take our kids - where they could experience the beauty and activities we sought in all of our travels. You can imagine our joy when we first learned of SPLASH - a luxury development built by one of the premier builders and developers on the Gulf Coast. And so it went that we purchased our first and only family holiday condo in 2007. Living a thousand miles away in Ohio, we can’t get to Splash as often as we would like – hence our decision to share our bit of paradise with others.

John Musci purchased this condo in 2007

Why John Musci chose West Panama City Beach

Unlike many of the units at Splash equipped strictly as rentals – we personally own and use our condo, and to this end, we we have furnished our two (2) bedroom and (2) bathroom condo in the manner in which we would enjoy a luxury getaway. Our condo is set up so that it has all of the amenities that we have in our own home, and that you would expect to find in the best equipped, luxury home anywhere. And as such, our condo features high-end furnishings throughout – not the rental packages found in most units at Splash - allowing comfortable accommodations for seven (7) people in the beds provided.

Guests who have stayed with us in our condo confirm our belief - as witnessed by their comments in our on-line guest book. We encourage you to read these comments, and then - experience it for yourself ! !

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is not your typical rental condo, but rather our own vacation holiday home. It is furnished with beautiful, up-scale furnishings and decorated in a style our own family enjoys when we use our own condo. You won’t find anything “missing” from the conveniences and luxuries found in your own home – from the linens, to the dishes, cooking and bake ware, wine glasses and entertainment systems. And you won’t have to wait in the long check-in lines – you just go straight to our condo. We use a programmable front door lock that allows you to program your own 6-digit “key” – so no worries about losing card keys or having them become “de-magnetized” and no longer work, or not having enough key cards for everyone.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great place for kids

We took the grandkids and had a blast. The view is amazing - we lived out on the balcony when we weren't down playing. It was very relaxing and family oriented - which is was we wanted. Will definitely stay again in the future.

Nice condo with a great view..have patience with everything else

  • 3 of 5

-Condo was clean

-View was great

-Have patience...

--Elevators were awful

--Took up to 45 minutes plus to make it to the room (14th floor) multiple times

--Check in time don't bother..couldnt handle the volume

--We had some pretty good storms and the rush for everyone to leave the beach and head up the one beach access that services both towers takes time

-We had a small maintenance issue that was resolved quickly

--The number we were given didn't work, but sent an email that was handled efficiently.

-Kids (2&5) had a great time with the water park

-Having to wear a paper wrist band everyday around the property is for the birds.

-Kids enjoyed looking for shells and building in the white snow.

-Beach was clean

-Some pretty good places to eat.

-Enjoyed the pier park

Great family fun!

  • 4 of 5

This property is great for families with younger children. Lots to keep them happy. The beach is absolutely beautiful here! The condo is nicely decorated and has everything needed to be a home away from home.

Beaches and Baseball

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 14 days and loved it! The beach is easy access and clean! We played in the Grandslam World Series and Frank Brown park is minutes away! We were there during the 4th of July and could see the fire works at Pier Park and the fire works on the next pier down.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was nice. The water at the resort was cold. The elevator situation stinks. I wish I knew about them so I would be prepared.

Owner's Response: The water in the "Splash" pool with the buckets and slides is not heated, as it is so shallow that it takes on the temperature of the air. This doesn't take away from kids enjoying the Splash pool; if they get cold, they jump into any of the other adjacent pools that are heated. The Toddler Lilly-pad pool also isn't heated for the same reason. The other three pools are all heated, as is the hot tub. Because the resort was sold out, and most rentals are weekly rentals from a Saturday to a Saturday, there is a tremendous demand for the elevators - especially on check-in and check-out Saturdays. Unfortunately, there isn't much one can do to be prepared for these high-volume times.
