About the property

Beach Front Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area , 2 Full Baths (Sleeps 4)

This one bedroom condo is beautifully decorated and comes with all of the comforts of home. We are continually making updates to make your experience more enjoyable. Although there are no shortages of excellent restaurants in the area, you can comfortably enjoy a home cooked meal in our fully equipped kitchen. Brand new stainless steel appliances have been installed as of December 2017 as well as new light fixtures in both bathrooms and kitchen. Families with children can pack a little lighter as we provide plentiful beach toys along with kid and family games for down time.

The views from this 15th floor unit are exceptional and make for excellent viewing of the plentiful sea life in the area. We do provide free beach service ($180 value per week during the summer), but also provide folding chairs and an umbrella which are great for when you want to explore the other beaches and parks in the area.

This unit is perfect for a family vacation or a romantic trip for a couple. It is tastefully decorated with a beach theme without being overdone. There is crown molding throughout and new tile in the kitchen and living areas. We have done our best to provide everything needed to make this a "home away from home" for our family and hope you will feel the same. (Bunks are meant for children only).

Weekly visits preferred. Shorter stays are welcomed when we have availability so please contact the owner for an exact quote. During peak season, we only allow weekly stays from Saturday to Saturday. Please be exact when listing number of guests staying (16 and older are considered an adult and babies do count as a guest). There will be 3% added to each rental for credit card processing fees.

About John Kirts

We are a family of 4 residing in a small town in Illinois. We have two teenage children who both enjoy the family time spent here. We have been vacationing in the Northern end of Florida for many years because of its beautiful white sandy beaches and emerald water. We have traveled to many places and Panama City Beach was always our favorite so we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to purchase our own little 'piece of paradise'. This is the only unit we own and use it for our own family vacations. Some of the condos are owned by people who have many units and see it as a business without much care to the unit itself. Because this is our own family get away, we take great pride in keeping things nice for ourselves and guests. We strictly adhere to the rules set by the Celadon regarding minimum age of renters, no pets, and no smoking to keep things nice for ourselves and guests.

John Kirts purchased this condo in 2009

Why John Kirts chose West Panama City Beach

When searching for a condo in Panama City Beach, we looked at several other buildings. The location of the Celadon we feel is perfect if you want to be away from the crowds and chaos which occur at times at the busier east end. However, it is still close enough to be a short drive for when you do want a little more excitement or an evening out. This is the last high rise building on the beach so the beaches are less crowded since you don't have as many neighbors. The Celadon has strict guidelines concerning age requirements to avoid the noise and rowdiness that sometimes comes with spring breakers making this a great family vacation spot or couple get away any time of the year.

What makes this condo unique

This unit comes with a keyless entry system which allows you the luxury of not having to carry a key with you at all times. Just punch in a small code and you are in. This also avoids having to check in at the front desk upon arrival to pick up a key as well as allows for late check in times when the office is closed.

This unit is also very suitable for the elderly or guests with physical difficulties as the hall bathroom has a walk-in shower and high sitting toilet.

Awesome Condo , Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 6 nights here and the condo is well stocked, very clean, comfortable, the amenities were perfect and the views from the 15th Floor were gorgeous. John and Becky were great to work with and were always responsive to our questions. We had everything we needed during our stay. The Celadon is very close to Pier Park Shopping Center and only about 30-45 minutes over to Destin to the outlet stores, so I think the location is perfect and also less traffic on the West end of PCB. Becky took care of our parking permit and we were able to easily get into the condo with the code which she e mailed to us. Much more convenient than having to go to the front desk, etc. So thanks so much Becky and John for everything. We would highly recommend staying here. We anticipate coming back in the near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We are so glad that you and your wife were happy with the condo. We take great pride in the condo and are so pleased when we get positive feed back. In my opinion, the fall is the best time to visit (I haven't been fortunate enough to be there over the winter yet) because of no crowds yet still comfortable temperatures. We would be very happy to have you stay with us again! Becky

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Don't pass up this condo! Our family visits the gulf coast every other year and we have found our "go to" place. John and Becky's home has every single thing you could possibly need while on vacation. Our family of 5 fit comfortably and we never seemed on top of each other. I am a clean freak...usually take my own cleaning supplies haha, but didn't need them here! The condo was super clean, smelled great, and all of the furnishings were updated and fresh. Also, the location was perfectly close to Pier Park without being busy and overcrowded. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Rose! We are truly happy you had a nice vacation. Being from Illinois like you, it is certainly a treat to get to the beach after the long, cold winter. How nice to get off just you and your daughter; some day I hope to do the same with mine. I am glad you felt the condo was just like home; that is our goal for all of our guests. Thank you again for deciding to stay with us.

Buffett then the beach!

  • 5 of 5

John and Becky's condo is better than the pictures show! As soon as we walked in the door we could tell it was extremely well taken care of. Everything we needed was provided, plus some. The entire unit was very clean and organized. Like others have commented, the balcony provided a place to enjoy the sun when it was too windy to be on the beach and blocked the wind in the evenings so we could still sit outside & enjoy the sound of the waves. There are tons of items supplied in the unit to get you by for the first night if you forget something too, that was a huge plus! They really have thought of just about everything to make your stay perfect.

We had a wonderful trip and we hope to rent again soon!!

Thank You John and Becky for another wonderful stay at your condo. This is our second stay and as soon as we walked in the door we felt like we were home. There was nothing we needed that you had not provided. The cleanliness is well appreciated. We were there in Jan. so there were many very cool and windy days but with the balcony and provided seating we still enjoyed the sun and beach. The winds are blocked and we loved hearing the sound of the waves on the windy days. Even though it was cool we were able to enjoy the heated pool and two hot tubs everyday. The exercise room is a great plus for those days when outside exercise is uncomfortable. We drove to Destin(30 miles) for the best outlet shopping and again enjoyed the beaches of Seaside and Rosemary along the way. Cannot say enough how well kept this condo is. We heard many complaints from others in the complex about their rentals. Not with John and Becky, you can be assured everything will be in top shape and very clean. Thanks again for sharing your second home with us.

Couldn't ask for a more perfect week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to the Gulf and it was perfect! John and Becky made the last minute booking simple and easy. The condo itself is beautiful and they have done an outstanding job of beautifully decorating it and providing everything you could possibly need for your stay. The oceanfront view is outstanding!! The last morning we watched a group of porpoise playing in the shallows of the crystal clear waves. The sunsets will also take your breath away! The one and only day it rained we headed over to Destin's for shopping at the outlet stores and the Commons stores. We decided to save the Pier Park shopping for another cloudy day...but, the rest of the week was sunny and perfect. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the beach everyday even to eat! We bought snorkel equipment ($16 at Walmart) and started finding beautiful shells just at the edge of the waves! The restaurants were great! Dusty's is a MUST as well as, BoonDocks! But, if you don't want to eat out Becky has provided a fully equipped kitchen. We'd eat breakfast and lunch in, then go out for supper. And there are tons of eating places close by. Trip advisor has a good source of reviews if you can't decide. Can't wait till our next trip and thank you Becky and John for letting us "share" your beautiful home!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us! We try very hard to make things nice for our guests and are very happy when we succeed and you have a wonderful vacation. I can't get enough of the beautiful view and watching the marine life which it seems you enjoy as much as I do. I am glad that the weather was good for you for the most part. Anyway, who doesn't mind doing a little shopping anyway! I hope you and your husband return and decide to stay with us again. Thank you so much! Becky

Car: recommended

Although you don't need to leave the comfort of this beachfront condo to have a great trip, there are many scenic parks within driving distance. We particularly enjoy St. Andrews State Park with its beautiful beaches, pier, and nature area. There is a protected jetty beach within the park that has great snorkeling and a calm surf for small children. Another beautiful place is Ecofina Creek with its natural springs. You can rent canoes or bring your own raft/tube or fishing gear. This condo is also close to supermarkets, plentiful restaurants, and great shopping at Pier Park.
