About the property

Large Master Suite w/whirlpool bath, guest bedroom & bath, 2 bunks, sleeps 8

The Emerald Beach Resort experience starts when you arrive at the front door and notice the spacious, clean, welcoming lobby area. Take the elevators to the 22nd floor and turn right. Look to your right and you will see the beautiful view of West Bay across the horizon. Look to your left to see Room 2230, your vacation home. As you enter your condo, open the balcony curtains to reveal the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, people parasailing through the sky, sightseeing helicopters flying by your balcony. Walk out and look down and see a panoramic view of toddlers bravely tiptoeing to the water for the first time, children trying out their brand new kiddie boogie boards, young adults skiing, families enjoying each others company in the perfect vacation atmosphere.

And what a wonderful surprise that not only are you right on the beach, but your vacation home is large, clean, beautifully furnished and has all the comforts of home!

Unit 2230:

Unit 2230 is still in new condition because we personally keep up with housekeeping and inventory, our guests treat it as their own home and appreciate our efforts in providing them good, clean accommodations. The living room has a 46-inch LED Samsung Smart TV with DVR and on-demand services. With Smart TV, you can now watch your Netflix queue from Panama City Beach. The bedroom carpet is still new from being replaced last year with better quqlity material. We visit the property every few weeks to ensure that the unit and its contents are in guest-worthy condition, inventory is complete, and to add more amenities and replace old-looking or missing items.

Based on guest feedback, the kitchen now has more cooking utensils, crockpot, a Cuisinart Panini Grill, a Cuisinart toaster oven, hotpot express. Our snacks basket includes coffee, tea, chocolate drink, popcorn. Welcome chocolate treats.

The living room has comfortable sofa, ottoman and man-size leather rocker-recliner, and a 46-inch LED Smart HDTV, DVD and book library, parlor games, hall carpet runners.

Step into the balcony to watch and hear the waves, and feel the sunshine.

The dining area can comfortably sit 8 with sturdy traditional furniture that can go from casual to formal. High Chair for toddlers.

The beautifully furnished Master bedroom suite has a king-size bed with duvet set, TV, iPod player, DVD player, big bath with whirlpool bath, separate shower and double vanities. The guest bedroom has a queen-size bed with duvet set, TV, and bathroom just outside the door. 2 bunk beds for children. First-day personal amenities (soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion) in the bathrooms.

With the fully-equipped kitchen, you can make gourmet home-cooked meals for your beach picnics or your private dine-ins.

And for your beach-time, don't forget your free chair-rentals! Save $35.00/day. In addition, there are a couple of folding beach chairs in the utilities closet.

Emerald Beach Resort was just opened in 2007; it is modern, spacious, clean and loaded with state-of-the-art facilities. It has since become the #1 resort destination in Panama City Beach. The beach is a few steps away from the elevators; you can rent jet ski's, water skis, go parasailing, or simply relax and swim. You have a choice of two swimming pools: on the beach with the Tiki bar, or the family pools with water jets. With the brand new fitness center, you don't even have to miss your daily exercise. Or perhaps you prefer to go for cocktails instead and be entertained at the Sky Bridge lounge where you can also order dinner from Carrabbass. . Starbucks is just downstairs, next to the gift shop where you can purchase emergency supplies and beach outfits..

With Wyndham on the premises, there is 24x7 security, and issues with the resort facilities are readily resolved. Bellhop and valet parking are available for a fee, which heops you avoid the hassle of carrying your belongings and/or parking your car yourself in the multi-level garage. The perfect place for a memorable vacation.

Panama City Beach: With spectacular 27 miles of beach fronting the emerald waters of the Gulf or Mexico, Panama City Beach has complemented nature with man-made attractions in sports, shopping, eating, watching and other enjoyments. A few samples:

Pier Park is only a couple of miles away from Emerald Beach Resort; you can spend the whole day shopping, eating, going to the movies. Take the free Beach Bus so you won't have to drive and park.

There are 3 public Golf courses within 5 miles of the resort; or if you prefer the miniature kind, there's a big one just a few miles away. For the fisherman, you can join scheduled deep-sea fishing trips or charter your own trip.

Gulf World has dolphin shows, parrot shows, swim-with-the-dolphins, concerts.

Ripley's Believe It or Not displays the bizarre, macabre and other oddities in a huge sinking ship; it's a lot of fun!

Shipwreck Island Water park is an alternative to the swimming pools and the beach.

About Maria Hallom

We (Don and Maria) are a retired couple who used to work in the computer industry. Now, we are discovering that sharing our second home with paying guests is actually a satisfying experience that is also a lot of fun! Furnishing the condo, finding ways to improve the accommodations, balancing guest needs with maintenance and housekeeping practicalities, exchanging emails and phone conversations with guests, acting on guest feedbacks are a lot of work and can be expensive; however, providing a place that contributes to a family's memorable vacation makes it all worth the effort.

Why Maria Hallom chose Florida Panhandle

As a computer consultant, Maria travelled weekly to various client sites and is a seasoned hotel guest who knows the standards that provide a satisfactory hotel stay. Cleanliness and service are highest priorities. Maria goes to the condo on most check-out dates to check on the cleaning. Guests are treated as guests and not as income source; quick response, clear and unambiguous communication, orderly reservation process, easy payment options, accommodation of special requests, upgraded furnishing and amenities, anticipation of guest needs, etc.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is furnished as a home where family members can enjoy each other's company. It is not just a place to sleep for 8 people, rather, it tries to be a home-away-from-home for discriminating guests who enjoy the luxury of a large Master bedroom with a view of the beach, and whirlpool tub in the ensuite bathroom, or the leather recliner for TV-watching, or the panini grill for making your delicious sandwiches. It is therefore priced for the value that it provides.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family of four stayed at Maria's condo for one week. Everyone in our family enjoyed our stay. The beach chairs being included in the rental made my week!! We saw all sorts of sea life from our balcony including sting rays, sea turtles, dolphins, and pelicans (take your binoculars and long lens camera). The condo was extremly well maintained, clean, and well stocked with a couple of days necessities. The washer and dryer in the condo were great for keeping beach towels clean. We also enjoyed Starbuck's Happy Hour in the lobby. Very safe skywalkway for walking from the parking garage to the condos on the other side of the street. The pools were very clean, but this is the case for the entire resort. In the future I would stay here again, and have actually already recommended this condo to my family members. We enjoyed homemade icecream and Salvatore's Pizza in the shops right across the street. Pier Park was a nice place to visit as well. I would recommend going to eat early to avoid the crowds and take advantage of the early bird specials all over town.

Outstanding and Amazing

  • 5 of 5

First Impression is a Big WOW!!!

Beautiful condo and a million dollar views.

Condo is very well equipped and super clean. It has everything you will need and more. She even met us in the front lobby with a luggage cart. Maria is a one of the best host. She's kind and thoughtful. We treated her home just like our own. We were so comfortable just sitting at her balcony enjoying the Ocean views. Her condo s on the 22nd floor.

It's a nice place and convenient to shops. Starbucks and stores are just near by.

This condo is a definite 10. We stayed at many hotels around the World and this condo is super Amazing.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you and I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation. Our family and friends also stay at our condo, so we try to meet the requirements of families that expect not only a clean place, but also one that looks welcoming and has most of the conveniences they are used to in their own homes or when they stay at good hotels. So our guests don't miss the amenities they find in hotel bathrooms, gourmet cooks and bakers have the tools for making their delicious dinners and baked goodies, TV watchers enjoy most of Comcast stations including on-Demand, movie buffs can watch Netflix or select from our selection of DVD and Blu-ray movies, , and kids can of course enjoy the pool and when it rains, board games that they will find in the TV cabinet. Guest feedback is our best source, and the pancake griddle we added this year, will make it unnecessary for one of our previous guests to pack their own from home next year. Little did I know that it would be a big hit! The Keurig coffee maker was another guest suggestion. We try to reduce the items our guests have to pack in their cars, so we try to accommodate special requirements. Guests are always pleasantly surprised when they see that they do not have to purchase basic items like paper towels or laundry soap. We always enjoy hosting families like yours, especially those with grandmas/grandpas, or aunts that take their nieces and nephews, or grand children for family bonding time. Our condo is not just a place to sleep and it's always heartening to see families like yours enjoying their vacation home. We will certainly wait for your return next year. Again, thank you for giving us the opportunity to host your family, and for the nice review. Maria Hallom Emerald Vistas Real Estate

My husband and I stayed at this condo for Jeep Jam Weekend. We had a great time in PCB and a peaceful stay at the resort. It was welcoming, clean and had everything we needed. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. We loved sitting out there for coffee in the morning. Maria thought of everything. She even called to welcome us and make herself available should any need arise. We really appreciate her attention to detail. The condo is located about a mile from Pier Park and is close to many great restaurants. We're looking forward to coming back. We wish we had stayed longer. Thanks again for a great weekend!

Missouri Sister In Laws Week 2016

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this condo, it was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The owner made sure that we had everything we needed to make our week very enjoyable and she made us feel right at home. The view from the balcony is beautiful and much better to be on the 22nd floor than down towards the ground level. The beach chairs were a great addition to the week. The pool area at beach level was great. On the windy days the pool across the street was awesome due to the wall around it that blocked the wind . We will definitely look to rent this condo again when we plan our next trip to Panama City Beach. Thank you so much Maria for sharing your place with us!

Owner's Response: We are glad you felt at home at our condo and enjoyed the use of our kitchen for your gourmet home-cooked meals. Our usual family guests select our condo because not only is clean, it is also a vacation home furnished for relaxing, conversation, cooking, family meals, and in general enjoying family time together. We are thankful that in your case, we met your expectations. However, this is possible only because guests like you treat our condo as their own homes, and leave the condo in a good clean condition with the furniture, appliances, electronics available and working for the next guest. This also helps our cleaning staff to clean and prepare the condo for the incoming guest within the allotted time. Also thank you for your nice comments about Emerald Beach Resort and enjoying the whole resort. We hope to see you again next year.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was SUPER clean!! It had everything we needed for the week and the view was great!! All we had to buy was food so that was very nice.

Owner's Response: Hi Hope, Thank you for the super review! My cleaning lady is always happy to hear that that her work is appreciated. I'm usually at the condo during cleaning days to make sure supplies, amenities and inventory items are in place and working for the next guest. Sometimes we miss things, but cleanliness is always the highest priority. Our idea is that our guests should not have to run to the store because they forgot laundry soap or kitchen soap, or shampoo, or paper towels, band-aids. or even ketchup and mustard. Again thank you for being our guest and hope for your return next year. We look forward to your return next year! Maria

Above Expectation

  • 5 of 5

Maria's condo beats any other options out there. I know that because we stayed in EBR multiple times and it is by far one of the most clean, well decorated, very well equipped plus an awesome view from the 22nd floor we have seen. Best of all is the great treatment we received from the owner Maria. She has really thought of every little detail. She provides many extra items in her condo that caters to every possible need and found only in 5 stars hotels. Her attention to details is immaculate. She was very helpful from minute one to the last minute we sadly left the condo. As an example, in her detailed notes, I should have brought the parking passes that I printed but instead I left them home, so while driving to FL I was thinking of ways to reprint them but to my surprise there was a printer in the condo which I was able to connect to my computer and reprint the parking passes. A printer in a rental, to me that was unheard of and very impressive. We had an awesome vacation and we were very glad we chose Maria's condo. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you Maria for everything you did to make sure our stay was very memorable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for enjoying your stay at our condo and making good use of the amenities and equipment available for your convenience. It’s great that the printer worked to your satisfaction. We share with our guests, the things that we ourselves need when we’re in the condo, and the printer/copier/fax and the Smart TV with Netflix and DVR, are just a few of them. We try to provide our sophisticated guests conveniences similar to their own homes, and we have learned that our guests return the favor by treating our condo as well as they do their own homes. This enables our cleaning staff to effectively clean and prepare the condo for the next guest within the time period allocated. (As you might have noticed, she has a lot to do, and on some cleaning days I’m there to help and monitor.) So a big part of the credit also goes to guests like you as well! Your positive feedback is very much appreciated and encourages us to do more. In fact, the condo gets better from year to year because positive comments and suggestions from previous guests. We welcome your return next year and please let us know what else we can do to make your stay more enjoyable. Maria Hallom, owner Emerald Beach Resort Unit 2230
