Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Panama City Beach - "One Particular Harbor"


Introducing, for your vacation pleasure, 'One Particular Harbor' my fully appointed beach condo on the quieter "West End" of popular Panama City Beach. Located right on Front Beach Rd, when you stay here, you are literally steps to the sugar white sand while avoiding the high prices!

PLEASE NOTE- 'One Particular Harbor' is a NON-SMOKING unit and Sand Castles West DOES NOT ALLOW COLLEGE spring break groups and DOES NOT ALLOW RENTERS UNDER 25 years old. NO EXCEPTIONS. Also please note that Smoking is ONLY allowed in certain posted areas. Thank you for adhering to the smoking policy. Sorry, NO pets or NO children under 9 years of age.

You will fall in love with Sand Castles West due to it's great location on the West End, it's location right on Front Beach Road and the easy access to the beaches. You get to avoid the long check in lines every weekend you find in the high rise behemoths down the beach. Here at Sand Castles there are many owner occupied units so you will find pride of ownership and friendly long term residents! We are a smaller boutique complex with two pools and easy parking right near your unit! No long walks from your car. You do have a set of stairs to access the first floor so, my apologies, but it is not a wheelchair friendly unit.

Panama City Beach has the whitest, nicest, softest sand in the U.S. and crystal clear gulf waters that are world class!! Calm, clear waters. Smooth, soft sand. Gently sloping, shallow beaches. And an abundance of wildlife for photography buffs as well!

Panama City Beach has two personalities! The east end of PCB is known as the party hotspot, with arcades, miniature golf, go-carts, and bars and restaurants galore!. The West End is known for more of a family environment, with quieter beaches and the upscale amenities of popular Pier Park nearby. While the east-end is known for nightclubs and traffic, the west-end is known for its natural beauty and sunsets (and you should see the stars at night ... to die for!). To emphasize, you will be on the WEST-end.

Decorated with relaxing and informal beachy decor, you will feel on vacation as soon as you dock at "One Particular Harbor". We've used colors intended to calm the mind and soothe the soul - but isn't that why you come to the beach? And it is fully appointed, from kitchen to the master bedroom ... you will want for nothing! Newly installed is a Smart TV with free Netflix and a wireless Bluetooth sound bar to play your favorite beachy tunes!

About Jennifer StClair

Hey Folks! I'm a down home Southern gal at heart that grew up surf fishing, body surfing and walking the beaches of Walton county during the endless summers and fell in love with The Emerald Coast. Truly some of the most beautiful beaches so clean they squeak when you walk on them! My head slows down and my heart sings when I hit the coast and I hope you fall in love and your soul feels at rest as well!

Beach Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Great PCB vacation. Condo pretty much exactly as advertised. A few beautiful updates from the first photos we saw. Love the beachy new yellow drapes! Jennifer was wonderful to work with. Speedy replies. We originally had planned on having my sister and her husband stay for a few days with us. Jennifer had called to tell us that the condo was really small for 4 adults and I really appreciated that. It turned out that they couldn't come and it was a PERFECT romantic vacation for the 2 of us. Location is superb. Winn Dixie right next door for your shopping needs. Great restaurants within walking distance, but if you want to cook, the kitchen has everything you would need. Short walk across the street to the beach access next to the Palazzo. 2 pools on the property were mostly deserted. Felt like we were in our our backyard! Sand Castles West is a very well maintained property. Bed was super comfy. My baby and I talked this morning about how we slept better there than in our own bed! Cannot wait to go back. Thank you again Jennifer for sharing "One Particular Harbor".

Wonderful time at the beach.

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed out time at this condo.

It was super clean, and not a lot of noise.

Just a short walk across the street to the beach, which was very easy to get to.

Felt right at home there.

Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Thank you Jennifer, we loved your home and can't wait to come back soon. This was our first family trip to the beach and it was everything we could have asked for. Your home is amazing it was so clean, and cute. We will be back I promise, we already have friends and family they want to know where we stayed.

Thank you again,

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation get away for me and my wife! Jennifer the owner was very responsive and welcoming. She even left a bouquet of flowers for us! It was fully furnished with everything we needed exactly as described, bed was very comfortable, complex was very quiet, and we loved that we could walk to so many amenities. We loved the smart TV that had Netflix access for movies for romantic movie night. The beaches were amazing and we plan on making it a regular stop.

We make it easy! No long check in lines here! Just punch in a combo and your vacation begins!

The Emerald Coast (#EmeraldCoasting) is sugar-white sand and emerald-green water. It’s dolphin cruises, open-air shopping and fresh, local seafood restaurants. It’s fun family vacations and a romantic spot for couples. It's deep sea fishing and beach volleyball. It's sunset walks along the shore and reading your favorite author in a lounge chair.

Get a little sand in your soul in the Heart of Florida’s Emerald Coast. Start planning a vacation now to some of the World's most beautiful beaches which are a 100 steps from your door. Sugar white sand gently lapped by crystal clear, emerald/turquoise warm gulf waters.

Sand Castles West is one of the best values on Front Beach road!! Conveniently located across Front Beach Rd just west of Hwy 79 and just minutes from the popular Pier Park and all the activities it has to offer, including Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville!! Enjoy a cool drink on the rooftop, while watching the waves roll in ... and enjoy a Cheeseburger in Paradise!! Also featuring the Back Porch Restaurant, an original Hofbrauhaus (from Munich, Germany!), Tootsie's Country Bar, art and souvenir shops, snacks, movies and much, MUCH more. Definitely worth a visit during your stay!

Nearby Destin, Ft. Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island are home to many family attractions and entertainment complexes with mini golf, water parks, bungee jumping, bumper cars, go-kart tracks, laser tag and more.

San Castles West is within a day's drive of most major southern cities. Nearby activities include snorkeling or fishing in crystal-clear water right off our beach, golf, shopping, and restaurants are just minutes away. Fish right across the street from your door! Pompano, redfish, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, bonito, and more can be caught right in the surf. Or you can fish from the city pier located just 1.5 miles east of Sand Castles West. Fun for all!!
