Overview

Florida Panhandle Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

From the oversized balcony of this END UNIT you have a front row seat to both glorious sunrises, and breathtaking sunsets while enjoying the endless vistas of the beautiful Emerald Coast. Imagine sipping your morning cup of coffee while watching the beach and the sun awake around you... or enjoying a nightcap as the sun sinks slowly into the sea amidst a burst of color. The balcony - at 280 sq ft - is the largest you'll find on the beach, and it has been comfortably furnished to provide an additional living area for you and your family. Many times during the year you will see dolphins and rays and other marine life that come to visit. What a setting from which to enjoy all of these natural wonders.

Just minutes from Pier Park, you are in Tropic Winds, the newest development in Panama City Beach located on the prestigious and quiet West end. Professionally decorated, the condo is spacious and inviting, and has been designed with your vacation needs in mind. There is ample, comfortable seating In the living room with a 42' flat screen TV and DVD player. In the stylish dining room you'll find plenty of seating for everyone. The kitchen features upgraded stainless appliances and is fully stocked to meet all of your cooking needs. For your convenience there is a washer and dryer, as well.

Each bedroom has its own private bath, and both bedrooms sport a king size bed with extra comfortable mattresses. In addition, each room has its own flat screen TV and DVD player. The Gulf-side master bedroom opens up onto the balcony for easy access and quiet moments. A queen size sleeper sofa provides not only stylish seating in the living room, but additional sleeping accommodations as well.

Tropic Winds offers its own 330 feet of pristine sugary white beach. We, the owners, are also offering you a FREE beach service... 2 chairs and an umbrella that are set up for you each morning on the beach. The development also has a Gulf side hot tub and patio, swimming pool, steam room, sauna and fitness facility.

A great feature of Tropic Winds and one appreciated at the end of a long, fun, busy, tiring day is the assigned parking in the building's garage. You will always have a place to park, convenient to the elevators, no matter what time you return.

So where should you go for your long, fun, busy, tiring day? You have many options!

Pier Park, with it's open air layout and endless shopping and restaurant opportunities will keep you entertained for a long time. It is home to familiar retailers, but also offers many small local shops with unique gifts and treasures for all. Restaurants like Margaritaville, Guy Harvey's Island Grill, Reggae J's, and many more are sure to please everyone's tastes. The complex features walking paths, a kiddies amusement park during much of the year, and specialized events, like the Summer Concert Series and Seabreeze Jazz Festival. The Grand Theatre offers 16 different theatres, so when you're ready to just sit and be entertained, you have lots of options available.

Across Front Beach Rd from Pier Park, extending 1500 feet into the Gulf is the Dan Russell City Pier, a world class fishing pier with fabulous views and even better fishing.

Not far from Pier Park is Frank Brown Park with its baseball fields, playgrounds, fishing and picnic areas, and an aquatic center. Besides the various sporting events it hosts throughout the year, it is also home to many fun events like the Seafood Festival, Music Fest, Thunder Beach and other annual traditions.

For a change in your beach experience, check out Shell Island, a natural, undeveloped island which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrews Bay. It is home to one of the world's highest concentrations of bottle-nosed dolphins, and the island's pristine beauty and abundant wildlife make it an enjoyable and exciting way to spend the day.

If golf is your preference you'll find many local courses nestled amidst wetlands, marshes, lakes, and preserves, all framed with a stunning assortment of palms, pines, sea grass and azaleas. Every golfer can find an enjoyable challenge!

Your entertainment opportunities for the whole family are endless... the Gulf World Aquarium, Wonder Works, Ripley's Believe it or Not, Shipwreck Park... so many decisions!

We know you also have many choices for your vacation accommodations and we appreciate your considering ours. We'd love to have you as our guests!

Why Carol Bryant chose Florida Panhandle

We have been coming to Panama City Beach for years, and love this quiet end of the beach. You have a peaceful home in which to relax and enjoy. For those times you want some excitement and entertainment, though, everything is just a short drive away.

What makes this condo unique

One of our favorite features of this condo is its location... on the east END of the building. We can see BOTH the sunrise and the sunset, and both will take your breath away! It is how we start every day and how we end each one, basking in this spectacular ritual of Mother Nature.

Clean & very comfortable vacation condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family vacation with our daughter & two grandchildren in your condo. We found it to be very clean & comfortable. The beds were amazing! The water pressure in the master shower was the best! Our condo was an end unit so it was very quiet.

If we had to have something negative to say......it would only be that the sliding glass doors to the balcony were kind of hard to open & there were no sheets for the hideaway bed. We made due by putting some extra blankets on the bed.

Overall, very nice trip to the Tropic Winds condos & we would diffinately return :)

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, but I wish you had let me know that we forgot to put out the sofa bed sheets. I'm so very sorry! That was our oversight. We do keep a supply in the owners closet for housekeeping, and they would have gladly come back to pull a set out for you. Sometimes in the rush of getting everything clean, we just forget to put fresh ones out when a set has been used. Again, my apologies. We're glad, though, that you enjoyed our quiet end of the beach, especially this end unit with its amazing views. We hope you'll come back to see us.

Best Condo I have stayed in!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a pleasant trip to the extremely beautiful condo. Everything was beautifully decorated and clean. We did have a small issue with the power one day which turned out to be the electric company working on a box outside the complex. But the owner was in the area so they even came by to check to make sure it was fixed. Super sweet couple! We definitely will be back again! Thank you for such a pleasant experience!

Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

When we stayed the weather was not very nice, so going outside was limited. The condo was very nice and clean. We would stay again. The only thing we did not like was that you had to drive to everything - no walking.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online did not do this condo justice! This was one of the nicest condos we've ever rented and the facility was just as good, if not better than advertised. Beach was pristine and the views were incredible. Cannot wait to return!!
