Panama City Condo Rental Photos and Description

5 Star Say...Lagoon Pool...Jack Nicolas Golf...Full Spa...Full Marina...Tennis

The nicest condo in bay point!…I started a year by purchasing a worn and tattered 7-year old reflections unit full of rental furniture. I tossed all the old furniture…hired a contractor and the fun began! we basically removed everything and started over…i will be living in the unit myself so i have redone the place as if my home. we installed plush 70 oz. carpet in the bedrooms and solid bamboo in the living/dining. we also hired a famous trim carpenter from Dothan to come and re-trim the entire unit…he installed beautiful wainscoting in the entry and foyer and crown molding throughout!.. we then replaced all the light fixtures and appliances with all new and modern features. The unit was rewired for flat screen TVs in each room and a built in sound system that should match right up with your smartphone. Our painter came in next and painted the unit throughout. my decorator found a wonderful leather sectional in atlanta and had an artist from sarasota design and build a custom dinette set that also serves as our wine storage cabinet…feel free to grab a bottle on me!

We bought high-end pillow top mattresses for both bedrooms topped with 1200 thread count 100% egyptian cotton sheets! we have only the most comfortable pillows and towels and custom made rugs throughout the unit. we turned our poolside balcony into the coolest hangout spot at the unit.. complete with a weber electric bar b q grill and a pub size table set overlooking the pool.

I'm a foody and know what you expect in your kitchen….it is there! The good stuff!! i love my keurig coffee maker at home and that's what i have here! my knives should always be sharp and my pots and pans always clean and in good condition! you will be amazed at the local art-work hanging on every wall. from the original “photo-on-canvas” oil paintings by “ “ to the original heavy oil painting hanging over the dining room table. On the porch check out my 'redfish on wood” made out of bottle caps by local artist! My favorite!! cool candles are every where and they are there to be used!

A lot of effort has gone into making this unit “Just So”…we know that you will enjoy your stay in out totally renovated unit in bay point…come and stay with us!

About Harry Stakely

I live in Alabama and stay in this unit for 50% of the time throughout the year. For this reason, I keep the unit in great condition and you have the opportunity to stay at something more than just a rental unit.

Harry Stakely purchased this condo in 2014

Why Harry Stakely chose Panama City

I recently purchased this condo unit and performed a complete renovation. I will live here for 50% of the year so you have the opportunity to stay in someone's home rather than a renter's vacation unit. The photos should show that that this condo unit is more than a typical rental unit but rather a home.

What makes this condo unique

Hardwood floors, high end leather sofa, beautyrest mattress in master with high end betting sheets, luxury towels, and fully equipped kitchen. Balcony has direct view overlooking resort style pool and St. Andrews Bay. Unit is very accessible to elevators and has immediate access to ground floor.

Job well done!

The condo is very clean and well designed. The unit has everything you need. Harry did a great job making sure we enjoyed our first trip to Panama City, Florida.The pictures are exactly how the unit is. It was great to see what the area has to offer and be able to come back and relax peacefully as if we were home. We will definitely return. Harry job well done! Thanks

Loved It!

  • 4 of 5

We LOVED this condo. It was just as the pictures show. Super clean and the kitchen had every thing you would need. The bed in the master was amazing! The kids loved the pool. Wished it had a closer beach but we're more pool people anyway so it didn't really matter to us. We liked the fact that even in the busy summer that it was nice and quiet and not overcrowded. I highly recommend this condo you won't be disappointed.

Relax & Enjoy All 5 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had an amazing week! Harry, the owner, offers a professional decorated and well-appointed condo. We appreciate the overall cleanliness and the details here that made our organization efforts a breeze and our stay so much fun. We enjoyed making meals-in and the kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/silverware/glasses/plates/utensils etc. I brought a small table cloth from home and used it on the patio table there. Evenings on the patio there, with the candles and the views were so relaxing. Also, there is a grill beside the pool and that was great to use. My favorite part was dip in the hot tub each evening.The pool closes at 10pm each night so this was a great benefit to enjoy the views and the community was clean, quite and upscale with their standards in place.

The cabinet by the front door offered us a great place to organize our beach hats, goggles, clean towels so we were ready to head out each morning. The bedroom furniture and the closet spaces offered plenty of room to unpack and rest comfortably. Shopping is convenient as there is a nearby publix, Walmart or Winn-Dixie. Follow the boardwalk for an on-site boat rental company, Restraunt and private beach. We suggest a day out at Shell Island State Park or for more entertainment Pier Park is about a 10 min drive with all the shopping, movies and other night life you would want. With the pool, golf & spa, The property is so nice you will have a hard time leaving. A sincere thank you to Harry for helping to answer all our questions and was pleasant to work with. We took care of the condo as if it was our home and respectfully tried to leave the condo as nice as it was when we arrived. Thank you for all your lovely attention to the details (i.e. coffee each morning)and we look forward to visiting again.

We have visited the area for 10 years and we also wanted to give a shout out to the best church ever and encourage you to enjoy a visit with them too they are so loving & welcoming. We have children and feel very comfortable while they attend their classes there and we always get the best message that adds to the real meaning to our time invested as a family there.

This place looks exactly like the pics!! My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was very quiet and everything was perfect! I would definitely recommend this place. I hope to come back and maybe bring my children next time as I think they would love it too!! The owner was super friendly and easy to work with.
