Why Elizabeth Bell chose Florida Panhandle

These beaches are absolutely gorgeous! The property at Emerald Beach Resort is magnificent and beautifully kept. The location is perfect because it is within walking distance of wonderful shopping, restaurants and night life, but maintains a quiet and tranquil beach experience. And the staff at EBR is fantastic.

What makes this condo unique

We have made our condo extremely family friendly, by including a porta crib, high chair and child safe tableware. We want families to feel comfortable and not have to worry about lugging baby gear. Our condo has everything you will need to enjoy a relaxed family vacation, including chaise lounges for two with an umbrella! (A 40.00 to 50.00 dollar a day value!) There are so many different ways to enjoy your time in Panama City Beach, you can stay as busy as you want....or just relax!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bell Family, Thank you so much for letting our family enjoy your beautiful condo. The pictures did not do it justice. Your place is beautiful and the view was amazing! My kids enjoyed skim boarding,boogie boarding and looking for shells. We did take a dolphin cruise to Shell Island and that was so fun! We did see dolphins, yeah! Shell Island is so beautiful! The water here is spectacular and I got many pics of awesome sunsets!Thank you so much again!

Incredible Views, Super Clean Condo, Awesome Owner

  • 5 of 5

If you are visiting Panama City Beach, this is the place to stay.

The 21st floor location provides amazing beach and Gulf views, while 8 extremely fast elevators keep the beach just minutes away.

The condo was well appointed with everything we needed for cooking, and the kitchen had plenty of room for us to prepare some serious meals. For one br, this condo is big on space. The bunk beds were a hit with our 11 and 14 year olds. One of the best values included with this condo were the complimentary beach chair rentals. With this resort, the rented beach chairs / umbrellas are very close to the water, so if you don't have them, you will not have a good view of the beach. Depending on the day of the week, these can range from $40 to $68 for two chairs....per day, but they are included in Elizabeth's condo rental -- huge value! There are also no pesky resort or parking fees. Check in is uber-convenient, as Elizabeth gives you the code and you walk right in. Check out is just as easy.

If you have young children, you'll be happy to know this condo has a hurricane-proof sliding glass door - no children under 60 pounds will be opening that door. The balcony has plenty off chairs / tables.

The location is right on the strip, between the two piers, and very convenient to restaurants and the mall. The resort has a parking garage across the street, with a sky bridge (and starbucks!!!) - parking was never a problem. Speaking of convenience, jet ski rentals and parasailing are available on site. The beach is cleaned every night, and the water was as clear as I've ever seen it. With multiple pools, crowds were not an issue, and this was Memorial Day weekend.

This is going to be our go-to beach retreat!

Great Lasting Impressions

  • 5 of 5

A little late on my review from our 2015 Fall break vacation but this place left us with a great lasting impression.

Elizabeth, the owner, was wonderful from the very beginning in making sure our trip was as comfortable and accommodating as possible. Our vacation wasn't one of the best due to a sick child and then the rain and Red Tide coming in. Staying in this beautifully decorated and very cozy condo made it so much easier for us. The beds and linens were very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to stay in and cook a few meals. One of the biggest helps for us was the nice selection of movies they had available to watch. We stayed in most of the time and this made it easier for us all while we waited out the sickness and storms. Lounging in the bed or on the comfortable sofa was nice. Our daughter enjoyed the bunks with their little privacy curtains, stuffed animals and reading lamp. She said it was like a little fort she could cozy up in. This is the perfect place for a family with small children. We really loved it here and hope to visit again soon. I can't thank Elizabeth enough for being so kind and helpful.

PS. We did finally get out walk the beach to explore the sea creatures that had washed ashore. Very fun and educational to see.

Pristine, lovely, spacious this condo hit the mark well-balanced sense of warmth without clutter.

  • 5 of 5

It felt like home

I never write reviews but this condo was so perfect I figured I should start. The design aesthetic was spot-on throughout . My thing is beauty form and function and this condo hit the mark with its well-balanced sense of warmth without clutter.

The master has a super comfortable king-size bed and blackout drapes. We slept like babies. Each room has ample storage and surface space. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. Everything was spotless, and easy to keep tidy. The laundry closet was nice and quiet. I have been in some condos where I felt guilty to run a load of laundry in the evening do to the noise, not the case here. In addition to the spacious condo the balcony was equally so. Private from neighboring units, the balcony is low enough for a nice view of the beach yet high enough for total privacy.

Although it was just my husband and I we agreed the condo was definitely spacious enough and laid out well for a full family.

We had a great time and if we had stayed longer I'm sure we would have enjoyed the cool sky lounge at the resort. You walk through it to get to the parking garage. it is a beautiful contemporary style lounge with live music and a bar, the cool thing is it is over the street below.

We had a great stay and highly recommend this condo.

Wonderful stay at Emerald Beach Resort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the emerald beach resort for just a few short days and I wish it could have been longer! Our condo was absolutely gorgeous and Elizabeth, the owner did so much to help make our stay wonderful! It was so easy to make the reservation and Elizabeth always responded quickly to emails and questions. She even sent me great suggestions for our family regarding activities and places to eat! She was very personable and very easy to work with. Plus, our condo came with beach chairs which was so nice! Overall, I would say this was a highlight of our vacation and I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
