About Christine & Sean Derda
Greetings, please call/text us at. Since we both work for an airline flying around the globe, we were looking for a beach vacation home that we could reach by car, if we do not want to fly. Panama City Beach was close enough and we were amazed by the beauty of the Emerald Coast. The best thing though is, if we do fly, we do not need a car there at all. Everything is so close and convenient. The airport is only a 10-minute ride, and a $25 cab fare. A large grocery and drug store are across from our building, and Pier Park is only a beautiful 25-minutes walk away along the beach. We have seen many beaches around the world but the Florida Emerald Coast definitely has some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world, white sugar sand and turquoise waters as far as one can see. We can't get enough of it. We love it! It's time to share it with you!

What makes this Condo unique
We are so happy at Palazzo. We chose this condo resort because it is smaller than all the other huge buildings at the beach away from all the hustle and bustle of the mega resorts. It is very well built and luxurious, it gives a feeling of a real upscale resort, more peaceful, private and intimate. Yet, all the amenties, shopping and restaurants are so close by. Perfect!

Owners could NOT have been any nicer or accommodating! Beautiful condo that is furnished beyond belief!
At home on the beach.
A quick response from the owner was a welcomed way to start the booking process. She forwarded the check-in material to me way before I expected to see it, thus alleviating any concerns that something might not make it on time. I booked the condo several months in advance, but as happens frequently, found myself in need of adjusting the dates of travel. The owners were very accommodating with this request and that was greatly appreciated.
When we arrived we immediately felt “at home on the beach” as we had previously stayed at this same unit some six years prior. The condo had then, as well as now, all we needed for the stay other than a trip to Wal-Mart to stock the fridge. As opposed to other condos we’ve stayed in, my wife never once uttered, “I can’t believe they don’t have this or that”. It’s often the little things that matter, and they have all the bases covered from that regard. The unit has been updated nicely over the years, and was certainly very clean. I don’t feel the need to describe the accommodations further, as the pictures on their site do a very good job of that...or else you wouldn’t even be reading this.
Most importantly, you come here to enjoy easy access to the beach for the family, and the unit easily delivers on that promise. The parking garage, that occupies the first four levels of this condo, opens directly to the beach. The condo has umbrella/lounge chair rentals if desired, but seems like most brought their own beach supplies. The owners provide towels/boogie-boards/beach toys and most importantly, comfortable beach chairs! Those things take up a lot of room, so it’s great to not have to pack them. And yes, the beach is awesome, and the water was perfect. The children enjoyed themselves, and I enjoyed being able to relax as the beach certainly was not crowded. We had plenty of room for frisbee/football/kite flying.
Anyhow, I don’t usually leave reviews, typically because I don’t have the time, so I’m glad I had a moment to share and thank the owners once again for their hospitality and the memories they afforded us.
Thank you very much for taking time to write such a thorough review . We are very happy you and your family enjoyed your stay at our condo and hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, Christine and Sean

My kids first beach vacation
The property looked just like the picture! It was clean and the owners are very accommodating. They respond quickly with any questions or concerns. The view on the balcony was gorgeous!! We would have coffee on the balcony in the morning and would see sting rays, sea turtles and dolphins. It was the highlight of our trip! The condo was close to a grocery store and a few restaurants. The beach was just an elevator ride down and very accessible. We absolutely loved this condo and will be back again someday! Christine and Shawn are excellent owners to communicate with. We definitely recommend this property!
