About the property

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

Our condo is decorated to be comfortable and kid friendly, but adult enough for the adult only getaways! The fully stocked kitchen has everything you will need to prepare your meals and those frozen drinks you may want to prepare yourself. The unit has books, games for the rainy days, movies for kids, teens and adults and everyone should be able to watch what they want on one of the 3 Flat Screen TV's and DVD players.

We are on the 20th floor which allows for incredible views. The view from the front door and the Master Bedroom is spectacular with a view of the St Andrews Bay, Gulf of Mexico, and the Grand Lagoon. The scenic view makes for a very enjoyable walk from the elevator to the condo. If you are up early enough, you can walk out the front door or sit up in bed and watch the sunrise over St Andrews Bay and then sit on the balcony or the couch and watch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico in the evening.

The legendary Pineapple Willys is an easy walk next door where you can enjoy your favorite games on one of the 25 TV's they have in their dining area. Many other restaurants are in the area. You can walk to Waffle House, McDonald's, Zaxby's, and KFC. It's also walking distance to several amusements nearby including putt-putt, go-carts, the Grand Maze, and the Ripley's Museum. Walmart, souvenir and specialty shops are all right across the street.

The living room is spacious with plenty of room for the kids to stretch out and enjoy a movie or play a game. The tables and chairs on the balcony allow you to have a relaxing meal while watching the sunset or the waves roll in. The master bedroom has a queen bed and attached full bath . The bunk room has twin bunk beds and attached full bath .There is a pull out sleeper sofa in the living room .

The unit is perfect, but the Shores of Panama condo resort provides even more. The 16,000 sq ft lagoon style pool is incredible and the kids will enjoy the underwater movies, organized activities and the live entertainment on the weekends. There are two Tiki Bars at the pool with one of them serving drinks and refreshments for the kids and the other one will mix up your favorite adult drink! There's also a hot tub and an indoor heated pool. And a well-equipped exercise room with free weights, weight machines, and treadmills is available for our guests. There is a game room for the kids, a coffee bar with outdoor seating for those who want to read the paper and drink your coffee.

If you really want to relax you can enjoy a day at the on-site Full Service Spa!

What makes this condo unique

The full service spa is a nice touch for those who want to really unwind. The resort is convenient to Pier Park. Pier Park is a great place for a nice walk enjoying the boutique shops, the great restaurants, major department stores, park for the kids and even a 16 cinema movie theatre. You can easily spend a whole evening, walking down the main street, stopping for ice cream, taking your kids to the park, then eating dinner in a fun atmosphere or going to a movie. Whether with kids or without ... it's just a great place to go to unwind and enjoy a nice relaxing evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for allowing Amber and I a chance to get away. You know how much I work and I really do appreciate having your family in my life. Your condo is beautiful and it had everything we needed. We can't wait to come down again! The ocean was warm and clear, the pool/hot tub were clean and comfortable, plus we didn't even get sunburn on this vacation!

Wonderful Condo w/Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my much needed getaway. The condo was nicely decorated, bed was extremely comfortable, kitchen had everything I needed for my visit. The view walking from elevator to the unit was breathtaking, as was the sunset view from the balcony. Although the pool was a little cool for me in December, I did enjoy the hot tub and walking on the beach. It was also nice being able to walk to Walmart, Waffle House and Pineapple Willys and other restaurants. Charlene was very easy and pleasant to work with and provided all the information we needed to make our stay pleasant. Will definitely be coming back here again.

The owner was so nice and made booking a breeze. The condo was absolutely flawless. The pools are beautiful and sparkling clean! My family and I had such a nice time that we decided to stay an additional night. I cannot wait to stay again. A+++++

Great weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to go for a weekend getaway. There were some minor issues that could be fixed. Some of the baking pans are rusted and the sheets in the master bedroom have started to knot up but the overall experience was wonderful. Charlene was very helpful in making sure my stay was pleasant.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as pics described. Very clean and we'll maintained. We had everything we needed plus an added pack n play and high chair for my 9 month old grandson. They came in quite handy. The view was breathtaking from front door and balcony. Charlene made the booking process easy as this was my first time booking on line. Will definitely be returning in the future.

I want to start off saying, I am a "reviews" person. I read usually everyone and size up pros and cons. This condo was exactly as it was pictured, Charlene was an excellent owner to work with, and trip was a success. There was so many great additions, pool area was awesome (amenity bands worth every penny), key pad coded entry made much easier entry, and 20th floor view was spectacular ! The whole grounds was well kept and very clean. Ah the elevators . . Everyone wanted to complain about elevators, well there was several sets of elevators. They were actually very fast moving from one floor to next, but being on the 20th floor, you might have to wait to get a elevator, but the people on the bottom floors would almost always have a full capacity elevator by floor 7 and below. So they would be stuck waiting longer than most. Overall, I would recommend the condo, building and vacation spot over many places I have stayed on previous trips !
