About Steve Brown

About us –

Because Panama City Beach is our home we love everything it has to offer. Over the past few years the number of activities on the beach has grown making PCB a year round destination. Spring Jam, Thunder on the Beach, and the 4th of July activities have become staples on the beach during Spring and Summer. During late Fall and Winter our snowbirds enjoy golfing and planned events designed specifically for them. This is why we love Panama City Beach because it offers vacation opportunities for everyone throughout the year.

Why Steve Brown chose Panama City Beach

Over the last several years we have looked at a lot of condominiums with an eye to possible purchases. Sterling Reef caught our eye from the start. We love the view from the balcony, there is just nothing like it. In addition, one has the immediate feel of an upscale urban retreat right on the beach. Nothing beats the covered, reserved parking that occupy the first few floors of the building with high speed elevators immediately available, it just makes so much sense. Having to hunt for a parking place, drag your luggage and family through a parking ramp, across the road and then wait on an elevator is a miserable way to start to a vacation and that's an experience we felt our guests could bypass. Finally, our unit is more comfortable than most 2 bedroom units on the beach, with a well equipped kitchen and laundry and everything you need for a luxury vacation.

Sterling Reef is on Front Beach Road about mid-way between the crowds and activity of Pier Park and the quiet of the East end and St. Andrews State Park. If you know where the HB Miller Fishing Pier is, you know where Sterling Reef is. We are the property immediately adjacent to The Pier. The unit is fully equipped so you can dine in and enjoy fresh seafood purchased locally or walk a bit to any of the great restaurants nearby such as The Shrimp Boat or Dee’s Hangout where Chef Dee always has something great. The pace at Sterling Reef affords you plenty of time around the pool, beach or simply enjoying the privacy of the balcony with a cup of coffee or your favorite drink as the sunsets.

What makes this condo unique

Sterling Reef sits on the most beautiful beach in the world. You will want to spend your day on the balcony overlooking the pool and the Gulf of Mexico, or in a lounge chair by the pool or on the beach. The Sterling Reef is a short hop to the charter boats of the Treasure Island Marina, St. Andrews State Park with its fishing pier and natural sand dunes or the shops and activity of Pier Park. Sterling Reef is a genuinely a great location no matter what you or others in your party want to do. In fact, it’s easy for some to go one way, say for fishing or to catch the Saturday or Sunday game while the others can shop or stay around the pool or beach. It’s a place that every guest can indulge in their favorite activity, even if that just napping in the sun.

Great condo with great view!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and just as described! The only problem we had during our stay is that the air conditioner did not work and the part had to be overnighted to fix it! The owners kept us updated with the progress and even bought our dinner for the inconvience! Short walk to the beach that wasn't overly crowded! We will be booking this Condo again in the future!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this great review. We are so sorry for the inconvenience of being without an air condition for a day. We always try to make our guests stay as trouble free as possible but some things we have no control over. We have great people in Panama City Beach who step up and get things done when they go wrong. Sterling Reef has a beautiful pool and incredible beach right next to the County Pier which means beautiful views from our balcony and is one of our favorite places to stay.

Clean, beautiful and affordable

  • 5 of 5

We came down on a Thursday night, and left Sunday. The condo was very clean and spacious. Beautiful views, and located in the middle of everything! The only issue we had was the AC. We like to keep it vet cold while we sleep, but weren't allowed to put the AC below 71 or it would freeze up. We wish we could've had it cooler as we woke up sweaty. Overall I would stay here again! Thanks for a great time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this review for our Sterling Reef Condo. We are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves and plan to return. We apologize for any inconvenience the air conditioning setting caused. We do this so guests do not experience the air freezing up and being totally without air for 24 hours and having a service call. With the heat and humidity in FL our air conditioners can only cool so much and 70 degrees seems to be the limit. We do this so guests don't have problems. Pam Brown

Car: recommended

Sterling Reef sits on the most beautiful beach in the world. You will want to spend your day on the balcony overlooking the pool and the Gulf of Mexico or in a lounge chair by the beautiful bi-level pool or on the beach. Resort is an easy walk to the fishing pier and the water park. Some really great restaurants are such as Dee's Hangout, The Saltwater Grill, and FireFly. Shopping abounds in Panama City Beach with The Shoppes of Edgewater, Pier Park, Sunsations, Alvin's Island and all close by. There is also plenty of shopping at Pier Park and Panama City. There are several world class golf courses, deep sea fishing charters, boat excursions, dolphin watches and encounters, para-sailing, jet ski rental, WonderWorks and Ripley’s Believe It or Not and much more all close by.

Sterling Reef is located in the middle of Panama City Beach on Thomas Drive. Look either way on your balcony for a spectacular view up and down the Emerald Coast. Sterling has a large heated pool and deck with plenty of lounges and a fitness center. In addition, Sterling Reef is immediately adjacent to the county pier for fishing and lots of uncrowded beach. We are also less than a block away from the water park. You will appreciate the high-speed elevators (No waiting for elevators here), and you will enjoy the ease and safety of covered parking place in the ramp under the building. There is never a long hike from the ramp across the road with your kids and luggage when you stay with us.
