About Barry

Life long Florida resident. I live in the Tampa Bay area but enjoy going up to my home in the Panhandle to get away from it all. Although I do live near the beach already.The beaches here are second to none.

Barry purchased this condo in 2006

Why Barry chose Florida Panhandle

I set this property up to be my home away from home. You can expect to find nice furnishings and the unit constantly being updated. I tend to rent to the same guests over and over as this is their home away from home too.

What makes this condo unique

You will deal directly with me as an owner. I want to make sure you have the best vacation experience possible.

Nice Weekend 10 March-13 March 2017

  • 3 of 5

Had a great time at Barry's Emerald Beach condo. Being from Tampa I am very familiar with gulf beaches, but these were exceptionally nice. The condo is in a great location surrounded by restaurants and grocery not far. The condo is very nice and clean, but needs some upgrades. The sleeper sofa is for the most part is not useable, the mattress is broken and then there is this foam pad thrown on top that really just makes you shake your head. Also, a couple of the balcony chairs are sun rotted and need to be replaced. For the most part though this is a very nice place to stay, just be advise that if you're going to cook and clean yourself to bring all your own products. Nothing is provided down to a sponge or extra toilet paper.

Beautiful beaches, nice condo

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay but had a few issues with the condo and complex. Parking is kind of a nightmare with 3 kids. Lots of walking and super difficult when you have groceries. You cannot bring a cooler into the pool area which is kind of hard when you bring one down to the beach and want to cool off in the pool afterwards. I understand that they want you to buy their drinks, but it's hard to figure out what to do with your cooler. Also, in the receive one trash bag for a weekend stay. Not quite sufficient for 5 people. The toilet seat was broken and the pull-out sofa was kind of a joke. No one is sleeping a wink on that thing. Seriously, all in all, it was a great place, but I am a review reader and just wanted to give an honest one.

The condo owner Barry went above and beyond to ensure we had a great visit. The condo was beautiful well maintained and had a feel of being at home. The view was breath taking with also great restruarants in the area we did not need our car. My wife and I highly recommend staying here as we consider it to be a Five Star condo exceeding our expectations. Tim & Diane Louisville, Kentucky. GO CATS 👍𣐼􀏀

5th floor was great location

  • 4 of 5

The unit isn't far from the elevator which is nice but if you haven't ever stayed at this place it is very confusing to find your unit. I didn't receive my parking code until I was getting ready to pull into the lot; this was aggravating as I was already lost driving from Georgia and the traffic was brutal once you get to Panama City. My friends stayed in other units and they received all their check-in info a week prior to check-in date, when I arrived I still had not received my unit number and code, he finally sent it right before the 4pm check-in. it seemed as though he was very paranoid to send me the check-in instructions until right at check in time. I wouldn't think that it would be such a big deal since the deposit on this unit is $500. Once in the unit, the view was awesome and the unit pretty clean. The ice maker did not work and when I notified him he was already aware. Ice is important at the beach, just saying. The pull out sofa really should be replaced as the mattress was falling through the frame and there were some rusty areas. Make sure you bring trash bags because they are not included and it isn't something that you think about but yet are very important. He advertises that the deposit really is just a hold on your account and may not actually be charged, however, mine was charged with the 2nd payment and I had to message him and ask for it to be refunded several days after I checked out. It finally posted back to my credit card 2 weeks after I checked out. This was my first visit to Panama City Beach and I would have to say the beach is lovely but the area is very crowded and the traffic is brutal so plan accordingly if you leave your condo. This condo is located in a great area and has great beach access but I will not use the VRBO system again if I ever stay at Emerald Beach again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you review on my condo and appreciate the review. I strive to make sure everyone has the best vacation experience. I strive to make sure everyone has a 5 star experience. I regret that you did not understand the home away system and the damage waiver option they offer to avoid paying the damage deposit. . This info is all part of the original quote which is sent out to you before you accept a reservation and pay. As far as the icemaker I explained you that the door dispenser may be frozen and you would need to reach in the freezer to get you ice that you needed which I confirmed after your check out so there was plenty of ice in the unit. The sleeper sofa had a couple springs come off which were quickly rectified. Thank you for pointing out that these needed attention. I do leave a couple of trash bags for my guests for a weekend stay. I would have been happy to provide more if you needed more but that seems to be ample for most guests. Your damage deposit was quickly rectified when you notified me that your card was no longer valid. I hope if you decide to come back to Panama City again we can make your 4 star stay a 5 star one like most all of our guests. Thank you for staying in my home away from home.
