Overview

Florida Panhandle Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Directly on the Beach with unobstructed views of the Emerald Gulf Coast!!

Conveniently located just minutes from Pier Park.

Imagine yourself surrounded by emerald green and sapphire blue waters and having sugary white sand scrunch between your toes. No, this is not the French Riviera or the Caribbean, it is Panama City Beach, one of Florida's best hidden vacation destinations. Panama City Beach is one of the world's most beautiful beaches, with over twenty-seven miles of breathtaking, unrivaled beauty along the Gulf of Mexico.

Directly on the beach, with assigned, covered parking located directly in the building close to the elevator. No more walks late at night or in the rain to cross the road in order to get home with those groceries.

Conveniently located just minutes Pier Park, a 900,000 square foot open air complex that is the largest shopping and entertainment venue in Northwest Florida. Pier Park brings a whole new level of shopping and entertainment to Panama City Beach including many favorite restaurants and national chain stores. Pier Park has beautifully landscaped walking paths, a park for summer concerts and annual festivals along with The Grand Theatre containing 16 movie theatres with stadium-style seating. On May 23rd, the Bay County International Airport was opened providing even greater travel convenience and discounted airlines like Southwest Airlines. Just up the road is Frank Brown Park, a 200 acre recreational center which has several softball and baseball fields used for tournaments, playgrounds, picnic areas, fishing sites and an aquatic center.

The owner has added his personal touch by furnishing the Penthouse with his own artwork. He wanted to make the condo feel like home away from home. He is 3D Dave because his 'shop art' is in 3D. The artist gets his inspiration from vacationing on the beach, or sitting by his fish pond and/or relaxing in his hammock. Both bedrooms are furnished with king size beds, each with own bathroom, making it ideal for two couples to go on vacation and split the cost. And when you have children, there is a queen sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully stocked, including a crock pot so dinner is ready when you come home!

Complimentary beach service, two beach lounge chairs and an umbrella are available during beach season (March 1 through Oct 31). These chairs have nice cushions ensuring your day on the beach is extra comfy and relaxing. Guests are also provided with an assigned parking space close to the elevator.

Our condo operates with a keyless entry system. No more keys to hide, carry, lose or forget. Nothing is worse than coming in from the beach and not being able to get into your condo because the sun has deactivated your key or you simply misplaced it.

We have great Snowbird Specials. We would love to share our vacation home, our little piece of paradise with you. Please call or email today for additional information.

About Victoria Bauer

We are the owners of this gorgeous Penthouse located in Panama City Beach. Dave and I (Mary) have always loved vacationing in Florida and have found the N.W. Coast of Florida to have the most beautiful beaches in the world. The sand is so white. Listening to the sound of the waves is music to our ears! Dave is retired and has taken up artwork. From years of doing handyman work, he knew he could use materials to create shop art. And that’s what he did! You’ll see his creative pieces throughout the condo. He is 3d Dave because his “shop art” is in 3D. All of the pieces are for sale, or you can commission him to create a piece just for you. He gets his inspiration vacationing and relaxing in his hammock! You can also check out his artwork on facebook - search for Dave Bogle. I enjoy cooking, baking, cross stitch and gardening. Summertime is spent playing in the dirt, harvesting and canning. Friends and family love receiving our labor of love gifts. Thank you for choosing Tropic Winds #2306 as your vacation home. Please come visit again.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had an excellent time. We have been here many times and this condo is the best we have ever stayed in. Went to Shell Island for the first time and found several treasures. Can't wait to come back next summer.

Great Stay

We had a great 4 night stay. The views are amazing. We watched sting rays and other fish swim every morning from our deck. Very convenient location. The condo itself was beautiful. I highly recommend!!

Great Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and everything as described. The owner sent all the info we needed before we arrived.

We had a great view of the ocean..you can see a lot from the 23rd floor and we loved the big balcony. Our favorite place to eat was Pineapple Willy's and we spent several days at St Andrews Bay, it's a great place for smaller kids because it's more calm than the ocean and not very deep. Our 2 year old granddaughter was able to play in the water without carrying her. I would highly recommend this condo

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by the property. The condo was beautiful and very comfortable. My husband and I brought four of my grandchildren with us and there was plenty of room. No long waits for elevators was great. It was also easy to get to without having to sit in traffic. Convenient to shopping. We would definitely stay here again.

GREAT PLACE TO SPEND A WEEK!!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this condo and would go back again! The location is great and the views are magnificent! You see the ocean from almost everywhere in the condo. It was so incredible to begin and end each day with a view and the sounds of the ocean. The listing information was accurate.

Unfortunately, the floor was filthy. I know this because I took a shower and was giving myself a pedicure and noticed that the bottoms of my feet were already dirty. No reflection on the owners but of the housekeepers and I hope that the owners will address this. Also, the towels had a faint sour smell, so I washed them all when I discovered this. These things would not stop me from staying here again - it was that nice!

Some of our favorite places to go - Pier Park for shopping, Pineapple Willy's for entertainment/fun atmosphere, Scampy's for excellent fish tacos and cheese girts (great lunch specials), St. Andrew's Park for getting back to nature.

Good

  • 3 of 5

Overall nice condo and we would stay there again. However, we feel that the master bed is soft and is in need of replacement. In addition, the cleaning service does not believe in dusting the base boards or moving anything and dusting underneath it. My entire family is highly allergic to dust.
