Panama City Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Breathtaking oceanfront view and luxurious professional West Indies decor is why our guests return year after year... Living area and master bedroom have sliding doors that open onto a large (8 x 26 ft.) 9th floor GULF FRONT balcony with mesmerizing views of the emerald green water and sugar white sandy beaches that Panama City Beach is famous for.

Conveniently located at the intersection of Alf Coleman Road and Front Beach Road, Sterling Reef Resort is one of only a few condominium buildings that has an on-site covered parking garage. No streets or skybridges to cross...

Adjacent to the NEW Bay County Pier and across from Shipwreck Island Water Park, you'll find yourself within walking distance of dining choices such as Bone Fish Grill and Another Broken Egg. Just a short drive down the beach is the NEW Pier Park shopping, dining and entertainment complex as well as the Frank Brown Sports Arena.

Come and experience the luxury that "Serenity by the Sea" has to offer and you too will return year after year.


Ask about our FIRST FLOOR UNIT with the 18x26 ft. covered balcony; same floorplan & same view. "1st floor convenience; 4th floor view..." We'll gladly send pics...

What a wonderful stay. I wouldn't change one thing about this condo. I just came from a 5 night stay in this unit. It was perfect! Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Kathy for being so kind!! It was a pleasure! I hope to return soon!!

We absolutely loved the condo! The decor was gorgeous! We were very impressed it was very clean, updated and had everything we would need for the week including linens ( a lot of condo rentals require you to bring your own). The views are stunning! There are also several gas grills available for use on the sky deck and a parking garage ( same side as condo not across the street). Kathy has been such a joy to work with! I emailed her several times prior toy arrival with general questions and she always responded back quickly. Upon arrival we were given Her personal phone number in case we had any issues we could reach her. We did not have any problems! We will defiantly be staying here again in the future! Sandy c

Loved It Here! Definitely Coming Back

  • 5 of 5

Although this is October & my friends & I came to Spring Break in March & stayed here, I just can't quit thinking about it! I love it. You definitely get your moneys worth. You have a great view of the ocean/beach, everything is within walking distance, and the condo its self is amazing. Very tidy & clean, almost felt like home : ) Myself, the only problem I had was I am scared to death of heights & well the room is pretty high up (lol) but once I managed to make my way to it I LOVED IT!!! Other than that my friends and I had a blast on our vacation here. We so didn't want to come home to KY. We definitely plan on coming back next year if all is well. Kathy is such a kind and honest person also, we really enjoyed renting this condo from her. I would most definitely recommend this condo for everyone who wants to come and enjoy their stay at panama. :)

True Serenity by the Sea....

  • 5 of 5

This condo was even more perfect than the pictures or words could describe. Everything was exactly as stated. This was our first time to Panama City Beach and the location of this condo is perfect for the busy Front Beach traffic. The view of the beach from the balcony was spectacular and we could also plainly see the Pier. The building is in EXCELLENT condition; safe and secure with a friendly maintenance staff. Beach access is PRIVATE and the pools were very nice. I cannot say enough about how perfect this condo is and the location is ideal for anyone especially families. The condo had plenty of everything: dishes, pots/pans, paper products, cleaning supplies, towels, beach chairs, etc. We had no trouble parking or getting in and out of the parking garage. There is so much to do in Panama City; we shopped, enjoyed the beach, took an afternoon trip to Shell Island and to see the dolphins, walked the strip, ate out---ate in, enjoyed our spectacular beach views, and toured the pier nightly where we saw all kinds of interesting catches being pulled in. We have rented at many other beaches in Florida and I cannot say enough about how helpful, kind, honest, and friendly Kathy is with her renters. Our vacation was much needed and absolutely perfect---so much so that we already rented from Kathy again for next year before we even left last week. Thank you so much Kathy for making our vacation spectacular.

OMGOSH Love this Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This condo is BEAUTIFUL. Our first trip to Florida and We loved it. Great location as well. Walking distance to Ship Wreck Island. Minutes from Walmart and close to Pier Park as well.. Not overally packed by this condo on the beach either. However we did go during the weekday. Weather was PERFECT. After looking around at other condos and the beaches and how packed they were and the traffic I would NOT want to consider anything else but this one. OH and was surprised to see the supplies in the condo. We brought our own chairs for the sand- wellll there are chairs, a raft, box fan, ironing board and iron, plenty of toilet paper, kitchen supplies etc... Kathy is a pleasure to work with. She is great on communicating through emails. Everything is perfectly laid out on step by step. I can not express how much I enjoyed this and I wish I didnt have to leave. Trust me Kathy Im already thinking about next year to return.. Was going to be to Cal. to Disneyland and Hollywood thing (Im from California orig.)Im considering NOT doing that and going back to Fl.

Great Condo On The Beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo is every bit as good as it sounds in the description. Everything you will need is here. This condo and the entire building are very clean and well maintained. The view of the beach from the 9th floor balcony is spectacular.

Kathy was great to work with. I called Kathy after we arrived because we thought there might be a problem with the air conditioning. It turned out everything was fine, and Kathy called me back to make sure everything was okay.

We were there during Spring Break, so traffic on Front Beach Road moved very slowly. We learned very quickly not to drive on Front Beach Road unless absolutely necessary. It's much better to use Back Beach Road or Hutchinson Blvd. instead. Restaurants on the beach were also very busy and almost impossible to get into. Restaurants not right on the beach were fine.

They were still busy, but you could get in.

We really enjoyed our stay at Serenity By The Sea and would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your "Serenity by the Sea" @ Sterling Reef experience and hope you'll return again. We're adding you to our "gold star guests" list and will gladly waive the deposit on your next reservation. Sounds like you found the secret to navigating the PCBeach traffic via Hutchinson Blvd. and Back Beach Road (aka PCB Pkwy)and Sterling Reef's ideal location makes the access to both roads easier...
