Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Portside Resort is an established “family friendly” complex with 16 acres of palm trees, 3 swimming pools (one heated for year round swimming), a baby pool, hot tub (also accessible year round), fitness center, shuffleboard and 3 tennis courts - with easy access to the beautiful, white sandy beach across the street. Great for walking, riding bikes throughout the tropical condo area.

It is located on the desirable west end of Panama City Beach, only 15 minutes from our new international airport. It is within 3 miles of Pier Park with all its specialty shops, Grand Theater, and restaurants overlooking the gulf. Frank Brown Park is 5 minutes away with its own huge pool, tennis courts, baseball and softball fields and lots of walking trails. Two four star restaurants are within 2 miles, with great seafood! McDonalds, Winn Dixie, and Walmart are just a few minutes away. Also close are: golf courses, miniature golf, Gulf World, Zoo World, Wonder Works and Ripley's Believe It Or Not. You can rent scooters, jet skis or go parasailing if you wish. Also, Sandestin with it’s famous outlet mall is 30 minutes away.

G-5 (our unit) is located in the middle of the complex, between the tennis courts and the back pool. It has the advantage of being a little more quiet than the front area, and still within easy walking distance to the beach. The patio faces a beautiful lagoon with the back pool on the other side of the lagoon.

Our Master Bedroom has a queen bed with a private balcony; the second bedroom has one twin and one trundle bed. Both rooms have their own TVs w DVD capability. The full bath adjoins both rooms, with a separate vanity in the Master suite. The large first floor living area opens onto a patio, and has a pull out sofa, dining seating for 6 plus a breakfast bar, and a fully furnished kitchen with microwave, blender, icemaker, and coffee maker. There is a TV w DVD and cable, and high speed internet w WiFi. The whole downstairs is set up for family fun and games, as well as easy access to food!

We are pet friendly (for a well-behaved pet up to 20 lbs). We invite you to come and bring your family for a truly memorable vacation. There is certainly something here for everyone! This is a non-smoking unit. Smoking is only allowed outside on the patio area.

About Barbara Vinson

I am from Bowling Green, KY, where I am a retired nurse and full time real estate investor. I love to dance, play bridge and spend time with my 3 daughters and their families, who live nearby.. We have a lake within 30 miles of us, but travel to PCB for sandy beaches and spectacular sunsets over the ocean.

We enjoy great times in PCB at Portside and we hope that you will take the opportunity to share our little piece of paradise.

Barbara Vinson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Barbara Vinson chose Florida Panhandle

Our family has been vacationing on the Emerald Coast for years and I purchased this unit when SouthWest Airlines made flights very affordable and easy to get here. I love having the pools and hot tub within walking distance, and the easy access to beautiful white beaches.

Pier Park Mall is just minutes away. It has incredible shopping and dining opportunities. The Frank Brown Ball Park is only 2 miles down Back Beach Road, and is used frequently for ball tournaments.

There is a wonderful homemade doughnut shop just down the road that is too, too good, but you have to get there early to avoid long lines!

I am proud of the way the property is maintained. It has a wonderful, strong and positive recommendation from all the locals as one of the "best maintained resorts in PCB". 16 acres of palm trees and the beautiful pools are showcased by the love and care of the staff and property owners.

Definitely a 'family' place to stay!

What makes this condo unique

We love that the unit is in walking distance to the beach...no need to start the car. Also love to sit on the couch, or be at the dining table and look out at the lagoon and the luscious landscaping through the sliding glass doors. Or better, to have meals on that patio in the shaded beauty of Florida palms.

There are wonderful consignment shops, a huge shopping mall, lots of restaurants and specialty shops close by. We are about 5 miles away from the heavily trafficked areas of the college youth and bikers. close enough to get to if you wish, but far enough away to enjoy privacy and peace, with the beauty of the beach.

The airport is only 15 minutes away. We have all the comforts of home right here waiting! There are lots of things to do and to discover while you are here...or you can truly relax and just enjoy the sun, sparkling waters of the Gulf and the white sandy beaches.

My 12 year old son and I absolutely loved staying at this townhouse !

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at portside for years and by far this one was our favorite! The back area is so private nothing but wet lands. The walk to the front pool and ocean is very close! I loved how it was decorated so peaceful! The owner even keeps a binder full of maps and great restaurants to eat at ! I loved her recommendation of the donuts and the Mexican restaurant great margaritas! The owner is quick to respond if you have any questions ! She even txted back as I was letting her know we were leaving she said have a safe trip back home! I plan on going back soon and hopefullly she has availability! Nicest owner ever with a wonderful home ! I love Panama City beach hope to live there someday 😊

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

Barbara's condo was a very suitable place for our family Spring Break Vacation. The condo is clean and well cared for; it is part a resort that is quiet and family friendly. The pools were fabulous and we used them every day. The condo is a short walk from the beach. The location is excellent for walking, shopping, doughnuts, swimming, biking and much more. We encountered a blip while we were there, and Barbara immediately resolved it for us. She is a very attentive and conscientious owner/host. We would come back and stay here again.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed staying at town home. It had everything we could need and more. Nicely decorated with a homie feel to it. Not fat at all from attractions and great dinning. The property at the time of my visit had lots of families. The power was out one night and I very much enjoyed meeting the people who lived there year round, very neighborly. Throughly enjoyed the stay.

Perfect Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This turned out to be the best family vacation get-a-way spot!! Short walk to pools and beach, very private condo, and amazing pool landscaping!! We felt like we were in a tropical paradise! Ms. Barbara was very attentive and happy to answer every question! We have found our annual family vacation condo and WILL most definitely be staying her for years to come!! Our only complaint was that we didn't book a few extra days!! Thank you Ms. Barbara!! So many new family memories for my children, husband and myself!!!

Family Times

  • 4 of 5

Pros-- We had a great weeks stay.Condo was clean,and roomy.The people in the office were very friendly and informative. Short walk to the beach. Nice pool areas. Remodeling of gym was going on during our visit,but still usable and the workers were very mindful of people coming and going, trying not to inconvenience anyone.Shopping and attractions nearby.

Cons--Bring your own towels.I didn't have a problem with it because we drove but if you're flying adds extra baggage. Trundle bed doesn't seem to be very stable.I would recommend a new mattress for the bed in master.
