About Emerald Beach Properties

Our family owns and operates several condos in Sunbird, Edgewater, Boardwalk, WaterCrest, Shores Of Panama, Seychelles, Grand Panama and St. Thomas Square. We take personal pride in all of our properties to make sure your stay with us is everything you want it to be.

Why Emerald Beach Properties chose Panama City Beach

Our family has been vacationing in Panama City Beach since I was a little girl. We always loved the family atmosphere and spent many wonderful vacations here. We have traveled all over the world and this is truly one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere.

What makes this condo unique

Sunbird is a great location! It's right on the beach with parking adjacent to the building. As an older, more established property, the rooms are more spacious than most of the newer complexes and the condo has fabulous beach views from every room!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in the Compass Rose Penthouse! The views were amazing! Everything about the condo was fantastic. The bed was super comfortable and we loved waking up to the view of the ocean. The resort itself was great as well, loved the pools, and being ocean front. Being next door to Pineapple Willys was a plus, we ended up eating there twice because it was so convenient! Overall a great trip and can't wait to visit again!

Great view, and looked exactly like shown on the website.

  • 5 of 5

I'm glad that we chose this unit despite another recommendation from the managemaent company. We enjoyed staying here very much. My mom's a wheelchair dependent and bedritten due to terminal illness. I wanted her to enjoy this trip. She was able to look out from the bedroom or the living room to see the beach. We loved that there's no carpet so it's very easy to move the wheechair around. The kitchen was well equipped. It's very comfortable. It's also very convenient, not even 5 min. drive to Walmart , drug stores and only 6 miles to PCB and a walking distant to Pineapple Willy's restaurant which has a pier. There're also plenty of activities like jet ski, banana boats, dolphin tours.Eventhough the unit was very clean,we did see one small cockroach in the living room, and found one that went home with us in our plastic container. Despite that we would stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you for being a part of making this trip enjoyable for me and my mom.

Fantastic view and location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation in PCB for the month of February.....too bad they couldn't control the weather. We have stayed at the Sunbird before and really enjoy the area, close to all the essentials. But this condo has the best view of the beach and gulf from the 12th floor......windows galore. A comfortable lounge is right in front of the large windows, a great place to relax and enjoy the view.....like beach and dolphins. And the extra bonus is the patio door from the bedroom to the balcony....leaving the door open a bit at night led to the most relaxing sleep on a comfortable king size bed, oh the sounds of the waves.

The condo was clean, bright and airy...well decorated with a beach theme, even the dishes were well matched. Besides the regular kitchen appliances there were lots of pots and pans and small appliances to be used in cooking any meals. However, due to a central location to a number of local restaurants you don't need to cook if you really want a relaxing vacation.

The condo is right on the vast beach of fine, white sand....you can walk for hours in either direction...and we did. The weather wasn't the warmest this year but we still enjoyed the beach and our daily walks. We bought two beach chairs that we only used a couple of times...we left them in the bedroom closet with the hopes that they can be enjoyed by future guests.

We did have one small problem with some unwanted crawlers, which is common in the area, but it only took one phone call to maintenance/property management to get everything straightened away....great service.

We were very pleased to be there for a Snowbird Appreciation Night put on by a few of the owners/renters..they supplied wine, cheese, crackers, meats. A representative of the Canadian Snowbird Association was on hand to bring us up to date on matters that affect vacationers. It was a great meet and greet and was much appreciated by us all.

It was a real pleasure staying in this condo.......hopefully we can return some time in the future.

Perfection in PCB Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Sarah & Hugh's condo at 1205W was perfect & just as described in their ad-Perfection in Paradise!

I am very familiar with PCB and the many locations that condos are spread throughout. I knew I wanted to stay on Thomas Drive because it is less congested but still centrally located to the things that we wanted to do. (WAL MART is just around the corner!) When I found their ad I thought it sounded perfect and it was!

The photos supplied are very accurate but really don't do justice to the actual condo and views. We had stunning spectacular sunsets from the patio. THE MOST AMAZING VIEWS EVER! Not only are you SMACK DAB on the beach but you have views in both directions-INCREDIBLE! We enjoyed breakfast and lunches on the patio every day!

The condo was clean & well maintained. Plenty of linens & starter supplies. The condo was equipped with flat screens in in the Living Room and bedroom, which was nice, I noticed other condos still had outdated TV's. I cooked breakfast, lunch and a couple of dinners, the kitchen was fully equipped and ample cookware and dishes! Loved the ocean themed light blue plates.

Any questions that I had prior to arrival, both Sarah and Hugh were helpful in answering questions! Their info provided prior to check in had all the pertinent info along with suggestions for dining. We actually found a nice little place called Pier 77 off Thomas that I had never eaten at before, it was amazing food.

I have already recommended this condo to friends that will be looking for a place to stay in PCB.

This was my boyfriend's first trip to PCB, FL and thanks to this condo, it will not be his last. He has now fell in love with the emerald waters that were so beautifully visible from 1205W Sunbird! Thank you Sarah & Hugh!!!

Best location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Sarah and Hugh's Sunbird unit. Everything they claimed the unit to be was accurate; very clean, well equiped and what beautiful views all day and night long. The sunbird is perfectually situated for any day trips all along the Panama City Beach area. Our next vacation trip to the area we will definitely stay here or at any of their other properties because talking to them and seeing how honest and truely caring they are, we know we will be treated very fairly and get what we paid for--a great vacation place!

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was "THE" place to stay at Sunbird. Everything we needed was in the condo. Best View around. You could see the ocean no matter what room you were in. Loved having the 2 beach chairs available each day. Pool was also great. Must visit Pineapple Willy's next door. Hugh and Sarah were very great to work with. Reserved on Friday and arrived on Monday. Great find at the last minute!!!!!!!

Nice Condo with Great View

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented from the owners but the first time to stay in this unit, and we have had good experiences both times. It is very pleasant to do business with the owners. This unit is exactly as described. It is well-maintained. The location is great, because it has an awesome view of the beach, and it is off of the main road but within walking distance to Walmart and other stores, restaurants, and attractions. The parking lot is gated and very convienient. There is a laundry room on the ground floor, but it takes 7 quarters per load for the washer and the dryer--so take some rolls of quarters along if you plan to wash any clothes. There are 3 nice outdoor swimming pools. I HIGHLY recommend this unit and the owners for a reasonably priced place for families to stay that is right on the beach. We are already planning to rent this unit again.
