Our goal is to make your vacation as relaxing and worry free as possible. This beautiful condo building sits right on the pristine sands of breathtaking Panama City Beach.

**Located on the desirable and peaceful west end of Panama City Beach you can walk right out onto the sugar white sand beaches, and soak up the sun. We offer complimentary beach service (a $210 value). Or if you prefer, sunbathe on the extra large balcony (over 280 sq ft.) which is beautifully furnished with comfortable seating for relaxing.

**Interior furnishings are provided by a professional design firm, and feature comfortable stylish seating, full dining room set, modern bedroom furniture, and decor that nicely compliments the furnishings making it feel just like home, only better.

**Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to make home cooked family meals, gourmet, or if you prefer just serve takeout. The newer kitchen includes granite counter tops, cherry wood cabinets, new appliances throughout, including dish washer and garbage disposal. We have filled the drawers and cabinets with everything you need to make your stay as convenient and comfortable as possible.

**KING size beds in both bedrooms are furnished with very elegant bedding, plenty of pillows, and comfortable mattresses. You will sleep like a baby on luxury hotel grade sheets and the sounds of the ocean rocking you to dream land. Each bedroom has an entry into its own separate bathroom, fully stocked with towels, washcloths, and common travel needs.

**Flat screen TVs are provided in each room, with cable television service included for evening entertainment or on a rainy day, (though we don't think you will experience very many rainy days in Panama City Beach where the average number of sunny days is 320 per year).

**The living area boasts a brand new 46 inch TV with Blueray\DVD player attached. The master bedroom includes a 32 inch TV also with Blueray/DVD player. And the second bedroom has a nice 26 inch TV with DVD built right in.

** Wi-Fi internet with broadband access is complimentary. If you must stay connected for work, send a 'wish you were here' message to friends or just look up where you want to eat tonight, we'll keep you in touch and productive.

**Only two miles from pier park, there are lots of activities nearby, but far enough away to give you the peace you desire.

**This 12th floor 1146 sq. ft. condo unit was carefully selected. From the balconies you are presented with fantastic views of Panama City Beach with its unique emerald colored oceans waters, pristine, white oil free sand, and nice views of the surrounding area. It is also a prime height from which dolphin spotting is a favorite pastime, and the sunrises and sunsets drain the tension and worry from your soul.

**Parking. …exclusive 1st floor garage parking spot only a few feet from the elevators. Additional parking is available across the street if needed. (please be aware that parking for large recreational vehicles and trailers is prohibited). Parking passes (provided) must be displayed on all vehicles while on TW premises.

Panama City Beach Florida offers 27 miles of stunning white sand, emerald green waters and enjoyment in, on or under the water. Explore our vast expanse of things to do, from family-friendly mazes and Florida sport fishing to exciting nightlife and relaxing spa getaways.

Note: Beach Chair service offered from March through October 31st.

About Owners Jean and Dale

Welcome visitors and hopefully guests. My name is Dale and my wife Jean and I live in Southeastern Pa. near Philadelphia. We are so excited to offer our second home, so that you too, may enjoy our little slice of paradise.

Owners Jean and Dale purchased this condo in 2011

Why Owners Jean and Dale chose Florida Panhandle

25 years ago I was stationed in Pensacola Fl. I fell in love with the Gulf Coast beaches, and vowed to return some day. I met and married my dream wife Jean, and we vacationed in the PCB area several times. She too fell in love with the Gulf Coast and when the opportunity arose, we jumped at the chance to have a piece of paradise. We hope to make PCB our permanent home someday. But would love to share our second home with you.

What makes this condo unique

We love the fact that we are on the quiet west end of Panama City Beach, but close enough to all of the attractions, shopping and restaurants so we can join in on the fun when we want. We can't get over the kind, friendly locals either. Everyone is so relaxed (can you blame them) and complete strangers treat you like your an old friend. We can't say enough about how thrilled we are to actually be able to enjoy our morning coffee on our great balcony while listening to the sounds and enjoying the incredible ocean views...especially the many dolphins sitings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect Condo for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Jean's condo was wonderful! The location was great, close to everything, but far enough away to keep the beach from being overcrowded. While most codos are fully tile, having carpet in some of the rooms kept it cozy and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and Winn-Dixie was only a few minutes down Front Beach Rd, so once again, convenience was great!

The condo was very clean and you could tell Jean kept it well maintained. When we arrived, everything was as it was described in the listing...wristbands for the beach chairs were on the counter as well as the parking placard.

We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. It was a great place to spend our vacation to say the least!

Owner's Response: Carl and Ann Marie, We couldn't be happier than to hear you had a nice time and thought our condo was nice. We try to make it as much like home as possible (only better, because we keep it much more updated and well stocked than our own home)! I have to give the cleanliness credit to our lovely friend who takes care of things for us and does all of the cleaning between guests. We love how great she is! We would be thrilled to have you back. You were lovely guests! Thank you again. Jean and Dale

As Good as it Gets

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Panama City Beach for the past three years and, each year, have stayed in a different condo unit, all of them special. This one, however, was the best of the best. Not only was it laid out well but it was also decorated to a level we can only describe as professionally. Jean and Dale spared no expense in equipping the unit to the hilt; the quality of the décor and housewares provided were top notch. Many times we have stayed in places that were under-supplied, missing and mismatched dishes, old worn pots and pans, etc. Not so here! High quality dishes and utensils (and plenty of them...service for 12 rather than four or six). The owners were very responsive to any of our needs, one example of which was switching from a more basic cable to one that included a DVR box so that we could watch all our favorite TV shows. That is just one example of how they went the extra mile for us. I recommend this condo rental as highly as any I've ever stayed in previously.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review from such lovely guests. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and were happy with the decor and supplies. We make a point of having matching dishes, silverware and glasses and we like to make sure there is plenty so our guests don't have to spend their vacation washing dishes constantly. We have stayed places where there are not enough supplies (plates, pots and pans, decent steak knives, etc) and knew we would never let our condo be like that. We feel our guests' comfort is our highest priority, believing that can make or break your vacation. We hope you will come stay with us again. We couldn't have asked for nicer guests! Thank you.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We are two seniors from the UK. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Jean and Dale's lovely condo. So much so that

we have booked for next year. The condo is beautifully appointed and situated on the beach and near to shops and

restaurants, so there is no need to travel far if you don't want to. Car parking is in the building which is very convenient.

Ideal for long or short stays - we went for 9 weeks this time and enjoyed both the beach and the enormous balcony

over looking the ocean. Looking forward to 2016!!

Owner's Response: Yvonne, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I know the balcony is one of my favorite places to hang out. It is so big and comfortable that I get lost out there and quite often fall asleep listening to the waves. We also love the convenient parking and are glad that it was there for you. So glad you have decided to return next year. Jean

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this condo and we had the best time. The location is perfect and exactly where we like to stay in PCB. The condo is clean, comfortable, and a good size for two couples or a small family. Our only minor complaint, which is not jean or dale's fault is it was a little difficult tracking down the person to get our wrist bands and parking pass. We couldn't find anyone until several days after we arrived and we looked for the person several times a day. We were just worried about parking in the assigned space and not having a parking pass. My only other very small complaint is that the matress in the ocean front room does seem like it is more worn than it was the first time we stayed. I know that things are going to have typical wear and tear but it just wasn't that comfortable for me. However, each person has their own preference and are not going to sleep as well in a different bed than they are used to.

Other than that, we think the condo is great and we are already planning a return trip for next year. We can't imagine staying anywhere else. The balcony furniture is great and after talking to other guests, I appreciate how much thought went into the balcony because other condos did not have the great balcony furniture that we did. I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting a relaxing vacation in a great area!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your second stay. We are sorry to hear that the one mattress was uncomfortable for you. We are actually going to replace both mattresses this year with the same caliber mattresses we had (hotel grade, high quality and very comfortable). We have also come up with a solution for the receiving of the wrist bands and parking passes. Although, they never enforced that, we know it can be nerve racking. We are now going to provide the wrist band and parking pass right in the condo. That way, you have them and don't have to deal with finding the office people. We hope you'll come back again next year. We would love to have you1 Thanks so much. Jean and Dale

The property description was spot on. Breathtaking view from the 12th floor balcony. When we first arrived, we struggled with the entry door. After many, many attempts, we got the hang of it! The condo was nicely appointed. Everything we needed for our week's stay was at our fingertips. I would recommend this property to friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Susan, We are so sorry you had such difficulty with the door. I thoroughly examined the lock and discovered that the latch bolt was damaged in what appeared to be an attempted break in. The latch bolt was bent and damaged so badly, that it prevented the door handle from returning to level position as required for the electronic lock mechanism to properly engage. I have replaced the latch bolt and lubricated the spring and handle. We stayed a full week without any problems. Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention. I assure you that if you decide to return, you will have no worries (as it should be at the beach). Dale Holley

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great, layout is good and interior is in great condition. Nice big balcony to sit out on and have breakfast, or relax in the evening and listen to the waves. Beach is very nice, having the chairs available is a great feature, makes it a lot nicer. Pool and other amenities looked nice although we did not use them. Other than the first day when everyone was checking in and out the elevators were fine, no real wait time at all. (At some condos this can be a real hassle on vacation.) Also having a washer and dryer was a nice plus to get some things clean before the ride home.

Great communication from the owners, no problems at all. Location is good, about a mile or two from Pier Park which gives you lots of options for dinner and or shopping.

Found a nice tab house in town that was a little less touristy and more local. "Fishale Tap House" had good food and a pretty good selection of beer and wine if that's your thing. We had 2 college kids with us so that was a good thing for them.

Overall a great place to stay. We were glad we found this one and are already thinking about booking a week for next year.
