Why Diane Ledbetter chose Panama City Beach

Ocean Reef is in a perfect location. We have the advantage of being on the prestigious west end, but everything the area has to offer is only a short distance away. Just to the east of us is Thomas Drive and the older sections of Panama City Beach with their history and charm. Then, about a mile to the west is the new Pier Park that offers extensive shopping, great restaurants and lots of entertainment venues. We are so convenient to the new International airport, as well, so friends and family can get to us easily.

What makes this condo unique

We loved this west facing end unit. Where else can you see both breathtaking sunrises and stunning sunsets? This development also features the largest balconies on the beach. At 280 sq ft they provide another living area, and we have enjoyed our table/chairs and lounge chairs while listening to the surf. Why else would you come to the beach?!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We looked for days to find the best condo both for the price as well as the amenitites. Tanya was AWESOME to work with and this condo definitely fit the bill. We had 9 people in the unit (4 kids) and we didn't feel cramped at all! The beach at this location is perfect and for those with young children - this is a great area to stay that isn't in the middle of the stupidity that comes with Panama City during spring break. We HIGHLY recommend the unit - or any unit that Tanya is managing!

Great stay at Ocean Reef

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit 1709 for the month of February 2018. This unit provides a lot of space with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. Plenty of plates, glasses, pots and pans for eating. It has a large washer and dryer for big loads. The balcony is huge, we used it daily and were able to see dolphins several times. The building is extremely quiet, you would never guess you had neighbors next to you. Everyone was very friendly. Ocean Reef is in a good location, many restaurants within walking distance, walked to Pier Park a few times. The beach in front of the condo is not crowded, there are no buildings to the east for quite a distance.

The manager Diane and her partner Carol were fantastic to work with. All emails were answered promptly, our coffee pot quit working and we had a new one delivered to us the next morning! I was very impressed with them, we will be renting from them again!

Some of the restaurants we enjoyed were Dee’s Hangout,

Runaway Island( right next door), J Micheals, Dat Cajun Place, and Sisters of the Sea, and Stuffys cafe in Panama City. There is a Starbucks a short walk away, and good pizza and donuts across the street at Amore. There is mini golf and go carts across the street.

If you are a snowbird head to Frank Brown Park for line dancing, pickle ball and heated pools. It is a short drive to the senior center and Oatfield center for more activities.

We would recommend this unit at Ocean Reef, or renting from Diane or Carol at their other units if you don’t need 4 bedrooms. Thanks had a great time!

Great condo for 8 adults and 3 Kids

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 kids. The condo was nicely furnished and was an end unit which helped with privacy. So with plenty of room these were no issues with cooking, watching TV and hanging out in the condo. The unit is up to date, so no dated condo here. We had 2 families with young children, so no problem with quite time for naps. Bathrooms worked good for the number of people too. Being an end unit we were able to leave beach chairs, umbrellas, & tent outside the unit in the hall way, out of the way and no worries.

Downside, the pool is very close to the parking lot, but was not an issue for us because we are beach people. it may bother you it may not.. also, parking is an issue if more than 1 car.... the extra car can park across the street if there is availability with a secondary over flow lot of about 3 blocks....

The beach service was great, the young men do a great service and keep the area clean. Great view off the balcony, and plenty of room, yes it is high at 17 floors but really not bad... the location has the putt putt golf, go carts, and game room across the street, so walking distance for the entertainment. Also Runaway Island Restaurant was walking distance ( about a block) which had a nice bar, with quick service, music and good food. In summary the condo was a 5, and we had a lot of people in it.. but I rated a 4 due to the parking & pool...which may not be an issue for you. Good stay, good value!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review of our condo and for giving our condo 5 stars. Being an end unit does offer more privacy as well as incredible views from the oversized balcony. While the pool is in close proximity to the parking deck, it is also beachfront, so that you are able to enjoy the ocean views while swimming. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will return again soon!

Our 4 bedroom condo was beautiful. It was well decorated, clean and had a large balcony.

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely stay her again. The condo was big and comfortably fit 6 adults and 2 kids. One of the best thing about it was that the beach in front of the building wasn't crowded at all, yet all the other beach in front of other building were crowded. The water was clear, clean and warm. This is a great location. We loved the garage parking (1 car). Our other car was parked across the street and easy to get to. The elevators were crazy on check-in day and check-out day but we didn't care because it was all worth it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. We are so happy that you enjoyed our condo and your vacation at Ocean Reef. As you pointed out, Ocean Reef has the added benefit of a less crowded beach than many of the larger resorts, and yet offers many wonderful amenities, as well as being in walking distance to shops, restaurants and activities. Thank you for being our guests. We hope you'll visit us again soon!

Beautiful condo, beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

Happy to have rented your end unit to enjoy the expanded view of the gulf. We spent most of our time either on the deck watching the water or in the living room, listening to the waves crash gently against the shore! It was just four days, but a nice break from Iowa weather for me and a convenient destination for my Milton, FL sister and her Thomasville, GA daughter! The unit had almost everything we needed and was spacious enough to accommodate our group of 9 for a quick Thanksgiving holiday getaway. Check in was simple and everything went without a hitch! Thank you for sharing the unit. (Absolutely love the two pineapple lamps in the living room!)

Nearest Airport
14.9 Miles
Northwest Beaches International Airport
Car: recommended

We are right in the middle of the Panama City Beach coastline, convenient to both the older part of the city with its history, charm and favorite places, but also just a mile from the new Pier Park with its extensive shopping, dining and entertainment venues.

For a unique experience, go on a 'Swim with the dolphins' tours where you'll get wonderful photo opportunities as the dolphins come right up to the boat! Our local beach service can set up other recreational water activities like, banana boat rides, parasailing, and jet skis. For a change of pace, you, or when weather concerns have you seeking indoor activities, visit Gulf World Marine Park, Ripley's Believe it or Not, or Wonder Works. You'll recognize the latter by its upside down building! Of course, we have all of those fun things that complete a beach vacation... miniature golf, a water park and plenty of shopping and entertainment at Pier Park.
