Overview

Panama City Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

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 – 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.

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.

* Each bedroom is a suite with its own bath, and each room has its own HDTV and DVD player.

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

* CD player has Ipod docking station.

* Brand new full size 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.

* 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 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 by buying a penthouse unit at Tropic Winds!

Carol Bryant purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carol Bryant chose Florida Panhandle

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.

A Peaceful Paradise...

  • 5 of 5

I have always heard Panama City Beach referred to as the “Redneck Riviera” where college students come to party. This has made me reluctant to book a vacation in this area, but having waited until the last minute to book our getaway, I gave it a shot. I am so glad that I did. The beaches are beautiful, the water is Caribbean turquoise; and Pier Park offers a lot of fun options for the whole family.

We stayed in Tropic Winds 2303 and which is very top floor of the building. I had mentally prepared myself for long waits for the elevators, but we never waited more than a minute or two. The view from the balcony alone was worth every penny we paid for this condo. It was just amazing and so incredibly relaxing.

The condo was well arranged and it offered everything you could need for a week’s stay. The extra beach chairs, umbrella and water toys were great for the kids. I know this may sound weird, but I fell in love while on vacation…with the washer and dryer. The units were so nice that I told my husband that’s what I want for Christmas!

If I could make a suggestion, the sofa bed really needs to be replaced. It is missing all but two springs at the foot of the bed and my girls said it was like sleeping on a rainbow because of the upside down U shape. We made it work because they are 11 and 16, but had they been adults, it probably would have been an issue. There were also several spots of blood on the mattress cover of the sofa bed and candy wrappers and candy in the floor under and behind the sofa. In all fairness, I didn’t notify Carol because it was just easier for me to clean it than to call someone. I think those things were just overlooked in the cleaning process, but the they could have been a bit more thorough.

I would also point out that parking is a beast. We drive a minivan and a big crew-cab truck. The minivan took several tries to fit it in the assigned parking space and the truck was parked across the street in one of the few available spots. It was never moved the entire time we were there, but when we left it had several dings in both sides because of the tight parking.

Even with all that said, we loved the place. It is quiet, family oriented and the views are outstanding. I would book from Carol again in a heartbeat. She was quick to respond and very professional.

We really had a wonderful time. Thanks again, Carol, for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Am so glad you enjoyed your stay! We love our condo, including that awesome washer and dryer… haha… and love sharing it. We don’t usually come down during the summer, but were anxious to replace the carpeting in the bedrooms (now done!), so we blocked the week after you left. When we sat on the couch …oops!!... we sat IN the couch! OMG! We had no idea there was such a problem! All of our guests have been too nice to tell us.  Besides the missing springs, turns out the mechanism for the bed part of the sofa was bent. No wonder your girls were sleeping like a rainbow. I’m so sorry! The sofa is still in good shape, so we replaced the bed mechanism, upgraded the mattress and replaced the foam in the cushions. Voila! We now have a “new” couch and the new mattress is actually comfortable. Thank you, too, for the tip about the beach service. I did not know how that worked, but will definitely change my arrival instructions to tell our guests “do not pass GO, go directly to the beach service and reserve your chairs!” We hope you’ll come back to visit again soon!

Great Condo. Very well supplied with everything you need for a stress free time. The furnishings were clean, comfortable, and in like new condition. Having beach chairs as part of the rental along with the extras provided by the owner helped with the overall very pleasant vacation. The owners provided great info on dining and golf. Definitely will return.

The views from this condo are excellent! Beautifully decorated and very clean. We was here for the 4th of July and it was perfect, we sat on the balcony and could see the fireworks at the pier. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

Wonderful stay at Panama City Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beautiful condo June 4- June 11, 2016. This condo is absolutely superb, so clean, and very "homey" and comfortable. The beds are so comfortable. We all slept great! You cannot beat the view of the beach and the ocean. It is on the 23rd floor, top floor of this resort. You do not wait forever on the elevators either! Getting to and from the beach, pool is nothing. You even have chairs on the beach with umbrella waiting for you, so no need to pack those! We had a great time here. There is so much to do here, if just being out on the beach is not enough for you. There is a Wonderworks, Ripley's Museum, an awesome Water Park (Shipwreck Island), Gulf World Marine Park (has shows and you can swim with the dolphins), and Shell Island (an uninhabited island where you can go for the day and snorkel, kayak, etc. Not to mention all the shops and great places to eat. Carol sends you all this information so you have so many things to chose from. Thank you Carol for all your suggestions!!! This was our first trip to Panama City Beach and we loved it!! Look no further everyone and book this place. You will not be sorry that you did!!!!!

My best friend and I came down for a girl's trip and had a fantastic time! The condo was very clean and beautifully furnished. The balcony was huge and the view was amazing! We had one issue (which was my fault) and Carol took care of it immediately. We can't wait to come back!! Very relaxing!!
