Gated Resort Community Near The Beach, 2 Bedrooms/2 Baths
About Property Manager
I enjoyed spending my past 15 winters in various condos owned by others. Just recently, with my son's managing support, I bought my own condo with my favorite floor plan - all furnished - a real turnkey. This condo is my first Mother-Son business venture. We are happy to share.
Property Manager purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Property Manager chose West Panama City Beach
This condo features an open floor plan with one bedroom/bath upstairs and one bedroom/bath downstairs providing privacy and space for guests.
What makes this Condo unique
Horizon South is a safe, gated condo community near the beach, but located at the end of the so-called 'strip'. It is close enough to the fun, yet calmer than staying with the fun.

Upon arrival we were told the room wasn’t ready which was not an issue due to the fact we were early. We were told we would be called when ready. After a quick dinner and after check in time we hadn’t heard anything. We called to check in and were told our unit wasn’t ready due to a dog being in the unit and they would have to clean the carpet. Of course we didn’t want to stay there and we were moved to another unit. When we arrived there, it was not clean and we were concerned with a number of issues with the unit. We were moved a third time and the unit was ok. But the toilet was not bolted down, the dishwasher did not clean the dishes and needed to be updated and it definitely had pets in it as well in the past. There was animal hair and a distinct odor.
Avoid at all costs! "This place will make you itch"
When I first arrived I was greeted with dog hair and the smell of ammonia (from animal pee) in the down stairs bedroom. I immediately notified property management. They assured me the someone will come clean the carpets. Four days went by and nothing was done. I gave the main office a call and again the assured me that someone would be out to fix the problem. Finally I just gave up, because i only had 5 days left. So essentially we only had the room up stairs and that was it. The ammonia smell in the room was so bad I considered it at health hazards. Here is a quote from www.health.ny.gov "Ammonia is corrosive. ... Exposure to high concentrations of ammonia in air causes immediate burning of the eyes, nose, throat and respiratory tract and can result in blindness, lung damage or death". MyAdvice is pay the extra money and to stay else.
Disappointed that the TV in the den did not change channels and was fuzzy.
Disappointed that the two dome lights in the loft did not work. Unfortunately, with the upcoming mandatory evacuation, we could not get those two issues repaired.
I have stayed at Horizon South 5 times in the last two years. I love the property and location. This condo was beautiful and well taken care of. I’m sure I’ll pay another visit. Thank you.
The condo is nice and close to pool.
the only issue was that the cleaning service did not do a good job and they were late, so we couldn’t check in until closer to 6pm. Other than that, everything else was good.
Nice vacation - friendly staff
We enjoyed our stay at this condo with our 3 children. The pools are super close as is the mini-golf course, which the children loved. The loft area was great for our kids. The condo had less cleaning supplies than most rentals we have used from vrbo in the past, but I grabbed what I needed at Winn Dixie and we were fine. The office manager we dealt with was friendly and clearly wanted to make our stay enjoyable. Easy walk to the beach and to restaurants by the Sandpiper Beacon, which is convenient.
Really enjoyed location and was pet friendly too.
Very nice unit! We didnt want to come home. Comfortable beds and the family(5) enjoyed the on property pools. Gated community was nice and the other vacationers that we met were very friendly too. We would have extended our stay if the days were available. Definitely coming back here!
Horizon South is located on the west end of town and has private beach access just across Front Beach Road, which is a short walk from the condo. For shopping & leisure fun, visit Pier Park, just 6 miles away. Sport activities are offered at Frank Brown Park, just 2 1/2 miles away.
