Fantastic Stay on Panama City Beach

  • 5 of 5

The property was well kept and right on the ocean. The ocean view from the shared balcony and unit was beautiful. The owner also provided great service.

Couple beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what we needed for our little vacation getaway! The size was perfect for the two of us and the view of the beach and pool was beautiful! We were able to buy bags of ice from the pool shop for the beach each day which was very convenient! Only two complaints: 1. bring extra toilet paper! 2. The room beside us had smokers and the smell came in though the bathroom, which was very unpleasant when you don't smoke! Other than those two minor things we had a wonderful time! Would highly recommend to any couple or couple with small kiddos!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I am so sorry there wasn't enough tissue. Next time we will make sure there is. For the unit next door, they clearly have a no smoking sign on their door upon check-in. But some guest just do not follow the rules. I am so sorry for that because I would've not like that either. We hope you will join us again for your next vacation

Small but right on the beach

  • 3 of 5

The condo can sleep 6 but it is small. I think 4 people would be comfortable. We had 3 adults and 3 children. But it is right on the beach and close to restaurants and activities.

Older condo

  • 3 of 5

Room looked like a regular hotel not typical condo. One king bed, one pull out couch and one set of bunks all in the same room (loft style). Says it sleeps 6 and booked for 6 guests but only had 3 towels. I had no hot water my entire stay though it was only 2 nights. Parking costs extra which is ridiculous ($15 per car).

Owner's Response: I'm sorry your stay wasn't pleasant. Upon booking, you agreed to a rental agreement that clearly stated to call me immediately if there were any issues. I never received a phone call or email from you. If you had have reached out to me ,we could've got you more linens and I could've told you to check the breaker box for a flipped breaker. The breaker was tripped when the house keeper came to clean. The rental agreement also tells you about the $15 parking pass. As for the sleeping arrangements our description describes the bedding situation just as you said it. A studio unit is an open room and our description states that as well. Thank you for staying with us anyway.
