Ocean Reef is all beachfront, 161 units, and located just moments away from the excitement and attractions that PCB. Ocean Reef is 1.4 miles away from Pier Park, PCB's newest entertainment destination with shops, restaurants, movie theater. It is only minutes from Golf and the Panama City Beach Recreational Complex. One of the things some of our guests enjoy is the ability to make payments. When you make your reservation, if you are at least several weeks away from arrival, you can make 2 payments instead of paying all at once. Sorry, trailers are not allowed to be parked here. We have ONE reserved parking space. Bringing more than one vehicle, especially in the busy season, will make it difficult to find parking. We don't offer beach service. We prefer to set up our own lightweight beach chairs, which are included, closer to the ocean.

About David and Suzette Johnson

We live in Tennessee but LOVE the beach. Purchasing this condo was a dream come true. Our children, now grown, feel the same way. Our newest additions to our family are grandchildren, Hudson, born in 2012 and Emmy Grace born in 2015.

David and Suzette Johnson purchased this condo in 2008

Why David and Suzette Johnson chose Panama City Beach

We wanted to purchase only New Construction, so Ocean Reef worked out perfectly for our needs.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is RIGHT ON THE BEACH! We have an outdoor pool, indoor pool, outdoor grills, sauna and steam room. We are only 1.4 miles from Pier Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW! We were so impressed with your condo. It exceeded our expectations. We stayed for 1 week and had a great time. The view is awesome and the beach was wonderful. Can't wait for the new airport to begin service in May so we can fly down next time.

We two retirees from the Midwest had a tremendous time in our four day stay. The unit was fully equipped, immaculately clean and orderly, and incredibly comfortable. Furnishings were newer and very comfortable. We really valued the extra size of the balcony and the relaxing time we were able to spend looking down into the surf, loafing on the loungers, and enjoying our beverages of choice. A two minute walk from the condo is Runaway Island, where we enjoyed the best seafood of all the restaurants we visited. David was inviting, friendly, and very helpful. We would not hesitate to return for future visits.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, amazing views, decorated tastefully and feels like home. Pictures do not do it justice. Beach has warm water and there is a place to grab a bite and watch the sunset waking distant. Owners were a phone call or text away when we needed something minor. Very kind over the phone. We definitely would come back to this exact unit.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful condo Sept. 17-22,2017. What a great place! Beautiful condo with everything you could possible need - and that deck- OMG - 20 stories up and 10 x 28 feet of privacy and perfect beach views! We saw dolphins, stingrays, and schools of fish so large we didn't know what they were at first. Great perspective.The owners were just a text away and very pleasant and easy to work with. Even the security and staff at Ocean Reef were always friendly, even blowing up our beach floats for us.

Great experience , beautiful place, and even the bed was super comfortable. All in all - one of the most relaxing vacations we ever had.
