Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

From the balcony of this top floor Penthouse condo it actually feels like you can see forever- the sun sparkles off the aqua waters of the Gulf, and the sugary white beaches of the Emerald Coast pull your eye to the horizons.

Just minutes from the new International Airport and Pier Park, you are in Tropic Winds, the newest development in Panama City Beach located on the prestigious and quiet west end. From the condo's comfortable, inviting furnishings to the well-equipped kitchen, it’s a perfect retreat whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, or a fun-filled vacation.

Upon arrival, you’ll park in your reserved, covered parking place just a few feet from the elevators. No schlepping luggage and groceries from afar, or trying to find a place to park each time you return. Unique to this development, and one of its best features, is the spacious, over sized balcony – 280 sq. ft – one of the largest in Panama City Beach! This huge space affords another living area, and with the table & chairs, bistro table and lounge chairs, there is plenty of room for everyone.

Imagine sipping your morning cup of coffee while watching the beach and the sun awake around you... or enjoying a nightcap as the sun sinks slowly into the sea amidst a burst of color. You have a great view of the water, and are often treated to a visit by rays or dolphins, even turtles. What a setting to enjoy the wonders of Mother Nature.

Before you strike out to see what Panama City Beach has to offer, we invite you to first tour your condo. With both the master bedroom and the living room opening onto the large balcony, you’ll find a bright, cheery home with some special features to enhance your perfect vacation.

* Free Wi-Fi

* A 42” flat screen HDTV in the living room with state of the art Blu-ray DVD player. We also provide HD television viewing in the living room.

* Each bedroom is a suite with its own bath, and each room has its own HDTV and DVD player. New carpeting has just been installed.

* A selection of DVDs available for your enjoyment while you are our guests.

* CD player

* Brand new full size HE washer and dryer.

* Fully stocked kitchen for all of your vacation menus. There's even a crock pot for those quick meals after a fun filled day.

* Both the master and guest bedrooms feature king size beds with upgraded comfy pillow top mattresses.

* Brand new Queen size sleep sofa with bedding.

* Two Free Beach chairs/umbrella service.

* Beach towels provided for you use.

* You'll also find additional beach chairs, small coolers to take to the beach and beachie toys.

* Books… Who wants to take their e-reader to the beach? We provide a collection of books for you to enjoy while relaxing on the beach, or curled up on the balcony. If you start a book and don't finish it, no problem. Just take it with you. If you've finished a book and want to leave it, that's great too.

Now it’s time to get out and explore! Of course there are plenty of “beach” things to do, starting with Tropic Winds own private 300 feet of white sandy beach. For a change, check out Shell Island, a natural, undeveloped island which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrews Bay. It is home to one of the world's highest concentrations of bottle-nosed dolphins, and the island's pristine beauty and abundant wildlife make it an enjoyable and exciting way to spend the day. Even the short shuttle boat ride over is part of the adventure!

In addition to all of the fun and exciting beach activities you would expect to find, you are also conveniently located to Pier Park.. and now Pier Park II.... a new open air complex right on Front Beach Road with extensive shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. Familiar retailers and restaurants have made a home in the largest retail center in Northwest Florida. With its beautifully landscaped walking paths, a park for summer concerts and festivals, and The Southern Theater’s Grand Theater which offers 16 movie theaters, there is something for everyone. Just down the road is the Frank Brown Park, a recreational facility with baseball and soccer fields, playgrounds, fishing and picnic areas, and an aquatic center.

Ready to hit the Links? There are several nearby golf courses nestled amidst wetlands, marshes, lakes, and preserves, all framed with a stunning assortment of palms, pines, sea grass and azaleas. Every golfer can find an enjoyable challenge!

We know you have many options and believe our condo offers a perfect beach getaway. We look forward to providing you a quiet, relaxing, ocean-side home, convenient to world-class shopping, dining and recreation.

About Carol Bryant

We are avid scuba divers and have always loved the ocean and the life it supports. As an active duty military family, we lived in the country of Panama for 2 years and had the opportunity to visit some awesome beaches and dive sites in Central and South America. But, our fondest memories over the years are of those family summer vacations at the sea shore... the fun of building sand castles for the waves to wash away, those morning runs on the beach, relaxing on a beach chair to soak up the rays while reading a favorite book, and endless hours shelling for that special find. After retiring near Atlanta, GA over 10 years ago, we began coming to Panama City Beach for its diving, emerald waters and sugar white sands. We are so thrilled to finally realize a life long dream to own our very own beach home with our penthouse unit at Tropic Winds!

Carol Bryant purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carol Bryant chose West Panama City Beach

We loved the freshness of the new development and its location on the quiet west end of Panama City Beach. It's far enough away from the crowds and traffic to be relaxing, but just a few minutes to restaurants, Pier Park, the new International Airport, and all the fun and excitement the beach has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

The one-of-a-kind large balcony provides another living space where you can enjoy a 'picnic' or just relax and soak in the view. At the end of a fun, but tiring day there is no hassle looking for a place to park. The assigned/deeded parking spot just a few feet from the elevator is always available.

On top of the world

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this particular condo and it remains at the top of our wish list for future vacations. The condo remains as spectacular inside and out as it was five years ago!

Once you enter the condo you should head right for the balcony and soak in the view, because on the 23rd floor you have a view, of everything. I'm not a fan of heights, but you know before you reserve this condo how high up it is, and it only takes a little getting used to and next thing you know you're standing by the railing on the balcony.

We were fortunate enough to stay for eight days in this beautiful condo, and only two of them were we not allowed to swim due to Tropical Storm Irma. But we found so much to do not only in the condo, (where we never lost power), but driving around as well. So we never lost a minute of fun, and we had fun! Storms are completely out of the owners control, but they have so much for their guests to do inside the condo that you hardly notice the rain. Well OK we noticed the rain and the wind but that just led to new adventures. We even ventured outside to walk on the beach but soon discovered that wasn't as easy as it seemed in those winds. Unless you like being sandblasted. Again, we knew what we were getting into and laughed the whole time.

If there is something you would want for while staying here I can't imagine what it is.

The owners are AMAZING, helpful, answering numerous questions without hesitation and I would HIGHLY recommend this condo, and have.

The guys in the group found plenty of golf courses, and I found plenty of fun places to eat. Grocery stores are plentiful. Oh & don't hesitate to try the Mom/Pop places as well.

You really should plan on taking time to use the binoculars provided by the owner. We saw dolphins playing every day, sea turtles and even a nest roped off where turtle eggs were getting ready to hatch. The Man-a-rays are so playful and they do not have stingers on the end of their tails but are often mistaken for Sting-Rays. But don't be disappointed we saw a mother and baby Sting-ray every day as well. We saw sunsets that would take your breath away, and one day we literally watched the fog as it rolled in from the Pier to the condo. We watched the Gulf literally go out as the storm was approaching. So much to watch if you have the time.

I hope as you read this review you will consider this condo if you're planning a visit to Panama City Beach.

Wow! Wonderful time and did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

STOP LOOKING! There is no need to search for another properrty. This is the one!! I promise!!

Now I am pretty picky and do not usually provide a 5-star rating for vacation homes, yet this beautiful one would have scored a 10-star rating if the scoring went that high.

From the moment I walked in the front door, I knew that my stay was going to be absolutely wonderful. The unit was spacious, up-to-date, impeccably cleaned, and had accessories such as bed comforters that were crisp,warm and inviting.

Oh!! And did I mention that the unit was on the 23rd floor!! HELLO!!

You will be able to see for miles up and down the beach, and easily see the ocean life below, such as rays, turtle and sometimes porpoises.

The unit came equipped with everything you could need, and if there was something that you couldn't find, then shopping was a couple of miles away.

What also made this unit and location especially nice is that there are not a host of other condo high rises next to Tropic Winds. There was space between them to not have the beach seen exceptionally crowded. Further east of Tropic Winds, the beach scene is much more crowded, especially as you get further east towards Thomas Drive.

So suffice to say, I thoroughly enjoyed my stat at 2303 Tropic Winds and hope to come back next year!

GREAT JOB OWNERS!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Carol was so helpful in helping me with any questions I had. The condo was exceptional and had everything we needed to get us through the first night since we got in a little late. The place was very clean and the view from the 23rd story is incredible. I will absolutely be back for a second stay.

Thanks again Carol for everything you did! I'm sure I got a little overbearing at times with all my inquires but you were very quick in giving me a response.

Beautiful condo and amazing view

  • 5 of 5

The view from the top floor was amazing! We loved our stay at Tropic Winds #2303 and appreciated the well stocked supplies. Everything we needed for our trip - kitchen supplies, beach items, extra blankets/towels and more. It was like being at home, only with a fabulous view!! We would definitely return to the same location and condo!! Thank you!!

Panama City Beach has something for everyone! Besides the sugary sands of the Emerald Coast, there is plenty of shopping, movie theaters, fine and casual dining, and beach style activities. Pier Park and now Pier Park II offer extensive shopping, restaurant and entertainment venues. For some unique adventures, we recommend the Dolphin tours, parasailing, banana boat rides, jet skiing, miniature golf, Wonder Works, Gulf Marine Park, St. Andrews Park, and Shell Island. If you're a golfer, there are plenty of nearby fun and challenging courses. One is even a qualifying course for the Web.com Tour! For the scuba divers, many years ago an old steel bridge that was being replaced, was broken in several sections and buried out in the Gulf. Over the years these "bridge spans" have become artificial reefs and are now host to wide variety of sea life. For those days you need out of the sun, there are many possibilities... Wonder Works, with its upside down house, Marine World, a new Dave and Busters in Pier Park or the movie theater with its 16 different theaters. There is something for everyone in your whole family.
