About The Owner

Wayne and Mary and son, Grant, live in an artsy little town in Alabama. We love dabbling in real estate and having projects to do, whether it is re-doing an existing place or building something new. (With the current economy, that has come to a grinding halt) We have been going to the beach together since 1981 and love

listening to the sound of the surf and watching sunsets over the water!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose Panama City Beach

We bought this condo pre-construction, so we got to watch it being built from the ground up. We thought that buying a 4 bedroom/4 bath gulf front condo would be a unique property. It has been fun for us to decorate it and we always like to make improvements.

What makes this condo unique

We LOVE sitting out on the spacious deck overlooking the water. Our son loves the bunk room where he and his friends can 'hang out.'

Great Owners + Great Condominium + Great Location = Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I have always loved traveling to Panama City Beach during my working years, but it has now become my retirement “go to” place for the winter months. I feel the beaches in Panama City Beach are some of the most beautiful in the world offering 27 miles of sugar-white sand bordering the clear, emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and incredible picturesque sunsets! After five years of searching, I have finally located the perfect lodging location for me in PCB to observe and enjoy all these wonderful sights and attractions. In December I booked my 42 day stay on VRBO in condominium 1203 at the Ocean Ritz, which is owned by Mary and Wayne Walker. First let me say, as so many have said in the past, I could not be more pleased with how these owners handled the rental process!! They are wonderful people to work with and have been very responsive, accommodating and flexible throughout my entire stay here at their condominium.

I just love this 4 bedroom and 4 bathroom unit, which offers a spacious interior and an extra-large balcony that opens to south and west views, so observing sunsets each night has been just amazing. There is ample deck furniture on the balcony that is both very comfortable and functional, especially when entertaining family and friends. The home décor is bright and well done and the kitchen space is sizeable and was well furnished! The beds were very comfortable, which is an important feature for me given past back issues. During my stay the owners installed a new LG washer and dryer system, which is “very quiet” and does an excellent job cleaning and drying clothes and bedding. I could go on more about other amenities, but I don’t need to, as I have been completely satisfied with my stay and would recommend this unit to anyone!! Again, I can’t say enough about how well I was treated by the Walker’s, as customer satisfaction is paramount for this wonderful couple! Great Experience!!

My mother and father in law take my family and my husbands brothers family every year. This will be our 6th year staying in this condo, and we couldn't be happier :) We have even been lucky enough because of us coming back every year that Mary has given us a night free :) I love this place, the people and I cry terribly every year when its time to leave :(

We visit panama city a couple of times a year. This was our 1st stay here. This will definitely be our go to get away from now on. It was perfect for our family & to be a 4 bedroom 4 bath. The price was unbearable. Everything was up to date & furnished just like home. Pool was large & literally steps to the beach. Looking forward to coming back in the fall.

Beautiful condo on perfect floor, not too low to hear noise but not too high either. Condo is well cared for with comfortable beds and everything was clean. Can't say enough about how easy Mary was to work with and how well priced condo was. Refundable deposit was quickly handled and given back. Balcony offered beautiful views where we watched the dolphins and manna rays play every day. We spent a lot of time on the balcony because it was so large with comfortable furnishings, and the railing was high so safe for my 2 year old granddaughter. The 4 bedrooms is so nice with plenty of room for everyone but especially love the 4 bathrooms so it made getting ready so much easier for our family. We would definitely stay here again. The free beach chair rentals were so nice and they were close to the water and pool hardly ever anyone in it so we enjoyed it and the hot tub too. We had absolutely no complaints with this unit or its owner, not even one so I think that says a lot and that you won't regret renting this condo of Mary's!!!!!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely AMAZING! We had a group of 10 that stayed and we all had the best time ever. It is a perfect location on the beach. Right next to Walmart so it was easily accessible. It was about a 10 minute drive from Pier Park so it was easy to get to too. The view is absolutely breathtaking! Very spacious and very beautifully decorated. It felt homey for all of us and we loved it! Mary was very easily to access and very helpful with everything. She was always there to answer any questions we had and she always tried to help us with anything we asked for! I would recommend staying in this place to everyone! Us girls loved every second!
