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.

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 no sandy beach or 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
Our family has been vacationing on the Emerald Coast for years and I purchased this unit when SouthWest flights made it very affordable and easy to get here. I love having the pools and kiddie pool 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.
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!
My very favorite thing is to curl up with a good book by the pool with the waterfall and watch the fun.
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.
The new 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.
The resort property resembles a tropical paradise. Beautiful and peaceful. No complaints what so ever. Clean townhouse, very comfortable, and wonderfully decorated. We will definitely be back.
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.
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!!!
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.
I absolutely had a wonderful time. The condo was beautiful and clean. It was within walking distance from the beach. The girls loved to pools and hottub. It was very pet friendly place to have my dog. There was so much to do within minutes of the condo. Would absolutely come back to this condo again. Mrs. Barbara Vinson was a pleasure to work with and super friendly and accommodating. She is a pleasure to do business with. I would recommend anyone to do business with her. Oh and btw when your there Thomas's donuts is a must. Thanks so much
We love the condo and location. This was our third visit here and have enjoyed them all. Bike week started toward the end of our most recent visit and thanks to the privacy that Portside provides we hardly noticed. There are plenty of restaurants and activities nearby. Our personal favorites were Schooners and Boonedocks. Great local atmosphere and beautiful beaches. The owner is a very pleasant person and has always been most helpful when inquiring about anything. We highly recommend choosing this property while visiting PCB.
