About Mike and Karen McAndrews

My wife and I are retired past owners of a family campground in Door County Wisconsin. It kept us pretty busy during the summer months, but in the winter we would head south to the warmth and beauty of sandy beaches. We liked it so much - we now live in one unit and rent the other. So as on site owners we are here to help with any issues or just if you have questions. It is a dream come true to have a home on Panama City Beach. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Mike and Karen McAndrews purchased this condo in 2011

Wow..... just.... WOW!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

That is what we said when we walked into this lovely property!!! The pictures just don't do it justice. Not only were we blown away by how nice it was, we couldn't get over all that the owners, Karen and Mike, had done to make us feel right at home!!! From the well thought out list of what we needed to do (wrist bands, etc) to the fact that we didn't need to purchase toilet paper before we arrived.... we were impressed!!! (And perhaps you think that is a small matter, but have you ever gotten to your rental only to find that there was no TP available??? ) There were beach chairs for us to use (4!), along with other items, including beach towels just in case we might have forgotten ours! Ample dishes, cups, and glassware filled the cabinets. There was dish soap, along with laundry soap, too!!! We even enjoyed the books that are available!!! I just can't say enough about what a relaxing vacation this was, and how the owners thoughtfulness played in to that!!! We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone wishing to visit the Panama City Beach area.... it was very central in its location! If you go, be sure and check out Shane's Rib Shack, it was definitely tasty. And the steaks at Angelo's were very good!!! A favored seafood stop was at J. Michael's.... while Capt. Anderson's was also good, the atmosphere at J. Michael's screamed beach vacation!!!! Thanks again Karen and Mike for all that you did to make our vacation stay a pleasant one!!!!

Perfect Location and Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying with Karen and Mike. That are wonderful folks to work with. They are so helpful and caring. The condo is very roomy and the furnishing are great. We love being close to the beach, arcade, go-carts, and putt putt golf. There is a great ice cream shop just up the road at homemade and a new local steamer so you can get fresh shrimp and the fixins to take back to the condo and enjoy the view on the huge balcony. They have beach toys, a luggage cart, 4 chairs on a cart that makes into a table on the beach. We consider the owners friends and look forward to many trips and memories at their condo.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I, along with another couple stayed in the condo for four nights and could not have been any happier. The condo is very nicely decorated and the views from the patio are breathtaking. The patio itself is worth every penny we paid for the condo. Mike & Karen have everything you could possibly need for an awesome trip to the beach, including chairs and umbrellas.

The only cons were that the wifi was slow and the cable is outdated, but who needs those things when you're at the beach?

Overall we couldn't have asked for a better beach experience. Thanks for sharing your awesome condo with us!

Beautiful, fun, everything you need!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Ocean Reef 1803 was amazing! I'm not even sure we have ever stayed in a condo with that big of a balcony! We eat out on the tables almost everyday. There was a full beach set up for us to use, every thing we needed. We had a blast , and would rent this unit again!

You won't be disappointed in this unit. Easy parking in a dedicated spot. Wonderfully decorated. Huge patio with breathtaking view. Everything you need is there!

Not only do you get the silky white sandy beach, but also an indoor and outdoor pool along with a hot tub.
