Thomas Drive Condo Rental Photos and Description

If you are looking for an upscale condominium at a luxury resort with the most magnificent views in Panama City - then look no further. This new three bedroom luxury penthouse on the 21st floor is an end unit with a PRIVATE WRAP-AROUND BALCONY. It has an unobstructed view that allows you to see east from St Andrews Bay all the way west to Destin with the world's most beautiful beaches in between. Whether you like watching the sun rise while sipping your coffee on the balcony or enjoy relaxing with fabulous ocean sunsets, this is the place for a memorable family vacation or an unforgettable honeymoon.

The Living Room and Master Bedroom have breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean plus access to the SPACIOUS 125 SQUARE-FOOT WRAP AROUND BALCONY through the 8-FOOT SLIDING GLASS DOORS. This professionally decorated unit features brand name furniture throughout, custom-made draperies, nine-foot ceilings, tile floors with plush carpeting in the bedrooms.There are ceiling fans throughout the unit and a full-sized high efficiency washer and dryer are an added convenience.

In December 2014, a new management company was hired by the newly elected Board of Directors to correct property deficiencies that existed with the previous managemnet company. Actions already taken included a complete cleaning of the building exterior, including the parking deck, hiring a new security company and upgrading the elevators to eliminate delays and congestion. Additional elevator changes that will be completeed this spring include replacing the elevator cabs and the elevator operation controls. Continued improvements to the condominium property to increase the guests' stay are the top priority of the new management company.

This condo is not managed by a rental company, but is operated and maintained by the owners. Unlike many units in this complex, this condo is our second home and we have furnished and maintain it for our personal use since we spend much of the year here ourselves. Guests staying in our condo will feel like it is their home also.

The specifics of our condo is included below:

The MASTER BEDROOM overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and has a magnificent Hooker Furniture four-poster king-size bed with Sealy Posturepedic mattresses. It has matching Hooker Furniture nightstands and dresser, a 42 inch flat screen LCD television with Blu-ray disc/DVD player, with a private door leading to the wrap-around balcony.

The SECOND MASTER BEDROOM has a great view of the beach looking eastward to St Andrews Bay. It is furnished with a king-sized bed with firm Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, has a beautifully appointed complementary nightstand and chest as well as a 32 inch flat screen LCD television with Blu-ray disc/DVD player.

The THIRD BEDROOM features a platinum wingback queen-sized bed with Sealy Posturepedic mattresses. A unique complementary chest and a 32 inch flat screen LCD television complete the room.


The LIVING ROOM features a queen-sized sleeper sofa with two overstuffed chairs to provide plenty of seating for relaxing and enjoying the panoramic ocean views through TWO SETS OF 8-FOOT SLIDING GLASS DOORS or watching the 42 inch LCD flat screen television, featuring HBO and NetFlix, is mounted over a glass-doored console. A DVD player is included along with a collection of books for readers of all ages.

The DINING AREA features a fine-crafted Sherrill wooden table with six matching chairs. The adjacent bar features a tiled front with six low-back stools for additional seating.

The fully-equipped KITCHEN has granite countertops with a refrigerator and icemaker, full-sized microwave, super quiet dishwasher, a flat-top electric stove with self-cleaning oven and a heavy duty garbage disposal. If you like to cook, there is everything you need including high quality cookware and appliances including a toaster, coffeemaker and blender. There is also dinnerware, glasses and flatware to accommodate 12 guests.

The unit also has direct access to secure high-speed internet service, cable television (WITH HBO AND NETFLIX) and local and long distance telephone service.

Also included are TWO RESERVED PARKING SPACES in the connected covered parking garage, allowing for convenient access to the condo and your vehicle.

Parasailing and jet skis are available right off the beach walk and beach chairs and umbrellas are available on the beach.

Several outstanding restaurants are within walking distance, including the world-famous Pineapple Willy's next door, Pompano's across the street and Angelo's Steak Pit down the street.

We loved our room! The room was beautiful. The reservation process was so pleasant and the owners let us check in early when we arrived a little ahead of schedule. We didn't have to go through the front desk AT ALL and that's a blessing because the line was ungodly! They were super nice to deal with and very trustworthy. The condo was in great working condition and one of the nicest 3-BR units that we've ever stayed in. The resort, on another note, wasn't as great as I'd expected. The parking deck, which has no bearing on my resort opinion, is incredibly small. We drove two suburban vehicles and absolutely could not fit into the two provided parking spaces; just too small. (A smaller car would have been fine..We got a notice from security because we were hanging out in the line of traffic..imagine that?! ha) The resort pool was beautiful although you could not get a chair to sit in unless you were out prior to six am. Every. single. chair... was taken at 5:30am by a towel and not a soul to be found in the pool. No one was patrolling the pool area so the towels weren't removed although the rules clearly stated that wasn't acceptable. We got to the pool around 9 am and had to use our metal beach chairs to have seats. Aside from that, I would have an excellent review. I wish this condo was at another resort that was taken a little better care of!

Wonderful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well furnished and the view is breathtaking. We liked it so much we ended up getting married on the balcony.

I think the elevators would be problematic during the high season, especially if you stayed on an upper floor, like this condo. The only other thing I wasn't stoked on was an additional fee for the pool, hot tub, and beach access. On the bright side there are public access ways from the pineapple willy's parking lot.

The condo is located close to a super Walmart, drug store, and several restaurants and other tourist type locations. This means you won't necessarily need to use your car.

I highly recommend it overall.

Owner's Response: It is rewarding to learn that our efforts to create an atmosphere in our condo for lifetime memories for our guests are successful. We strive to ensure that our guests always have a wonderful vacation while staying in our condo. With respect to the elevators, several major upgrades are currently under way which will greatly improve traffic flow during peak times.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Now we know what "Luxury Condo" stands for. We stayed for 2 weeks in Sun Lee's condo and are so happy with this decision. Everythng was pefect. The condo was very clean, super comfortable mattresses, nice furniture, the china, the linnen, the list is endless. We never had to wait at the elevatos. It was a perfect vataction and I think we are now spoiled. So we have to go back for more.....of the breath taking view and the luxury. Sun Lee: Job Well Done.

My family of 4 had more than enough space for a long weekend stay in this lovely condo. The owners take very good care of their home and would only expect the same from you during your stay. Everything was well stocked from the kitchen utencils and dishes to the bathroom towels. You have 2 parking spaces reserved for this condo which makes it so nice. On one occasion I had to call the owner who leaves several phone numbers, and they fixed the problem immediately. My two kids certainly enjoyed the beachfront and also the large outdoor pool area. I would recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a beautiful view located in the heart of Panama City.

NOT a Penthouse and not worth the $$$$

  • 3 of 5

This condo is on the 21st floor out of 23 total so it is NOT a penthouse. There was also no telescope nor bottle of wine as advertised. The balcony door is warped so you can barely open it with 2 strong hands and beware the owners charge handling fees to process your credit card - not cool on a vacation this pricey!! Overall the condo is nice but not worth the price considering you have to wait in long lines for the elevators and carefully weave through a poorly designed attached parking deck to get in and out. The Shores of Panama gets five stars for an awesome pool but the facility is poorly managed and very disorganized.
