This horseshoe shaped complex surrounds a lovely lake with two bridges and walking paths around. Our condo has a view of this lake and the birds are fun to watch during the day. You don’t want to forget to spend some time feeding the fish and turtles in the lake—they love it! There is a fairly large L-shaped pool with depths that range from 3’ to 8’, though diving is not allowed. There is also a clubhouse with a ping pong table, comfy furniture, Wifi, TV and restrooms. The barbecue area is right outside the clubhouse and the charcoal grills and picnic tables are available for your use. The tennis court and the shuffleboard area are available for your use, also. The gorgeous white sugar beach is only 100 yards from our condo -- past the lake and pool, you enter the beach area from our private access -- and when you are done for the day there are outside showers to get that sand washed off.

If you don’t feel like cooking, check out the many restaurants in the area. You are within walking distance of at least five restaurants, including Dat Cajun Place (New Orleans fare), Hammerhead Fred’s, Mellow Mushroom Pizza, Spinnakers, Pineapple Willies and two fast food places- Subway and Wendy’s. If you don’t mind driving, there are tons of great places to try, including J. Michaels (the locals love this place), Captain Anderson’s, Salt Water Grill, the Boat Yard, Schooners, plus many more. Check out some of the brochures located in our condo, along with the office in the complex. Many times there are coupons available!

Our complex is a family friendly resort, with lots of amenities and is safe and fun for kids. You should feel right at home in our gorgeous and spacious condo. The permanent residents usually have a Sunday night Happy Hour for everyone to join in on ... and they plan get togethers on other nights as well.

PLEASE do not rent this unit for your teenagers. The requirements concerning late night parties and the age requirements are strictly enforced by our onsite security staff.

*Taxes and cleaning fees are extra.

About The Owner

An Ironman and her Marathoner husband, along with her retired parents, are the owners of this unit. If you are an Ironman or plan on participating in the Ironman competition in PCB, please read the description for info on how close this condo is to the race!!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner chose Panama City

We purchased this condo because it is the perfect setting for our families. We love this complex, with the pool, clubhouse, tennis court and the private access to the beach! The beach is like walking on silk and we visit as often as our busy lives allow us. After a few years of renting, and knowing we would constantly be returning, we decided to purchase a unit so we would be assured of a place to stay in this complex. It is a very popular complex, so we recommend you grab a condo when it is available. Hopefully you will choose ours.

What makes this condo unique

Some of the unique benefits include...walking distance to at least five restaurants. Close to shopping, including a short drive to the famous Pier Park which is home to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, the Hofbrau Garden (one of our favorite), Dicks restaurant and Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Dave and Buster's ..plus a candy store that makes delicious fresh fudge and candies daily! (We personally attest to that!) There are many specialty shops in addition to an IMAX movie theater and an amusement park for the kids.

Back at the complex, the lake has a nice path for walking around any time of the day. The fish and turtles 'appreciate' any extras you throw their way. The L-shaped pool is a nice way to relax in the afternoon sun while the kids play ping pong in the clubhouse. Private access to the beach plus outdoor showers and clubhouse restrooms right off the private access are a plus in this complex. The sugar beach is heaven and the sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking! Our condo is about 100 yds, (past the lake, pool and clubhouse) to one of the most beautiful beaches on earth!

Our 2nd home

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. Every time we go here, it feels like we are right at home. The condo has plenty of room for a larger family and 3 full bathrooms comes in handy. Besides feeling at home inside the condo, from the pool on down to the beach, everyone we have encountered including the other home owners have been so friendly adding even more to the at home even though you are on vacation experience.

There is so much to do within walking distance for all ages from go-karts on down to the pcb slingshot on down to night time entertainment for the adults. Just a short drive to St Andrews and you can check out the jetty area. We tend to stay out of the Pier Park area but its nice to have the option if she wanted to hit the mall area. As far as food goes, again within walking distance a bit of everything from Dat Cajun Place on down to Hershey's ice cream, Hammerhead Fred or even fast food like Wendy's.

It's not often your vacation place feels like home. The owners try their hardest to make sure everyone feels at home. I can't imagine going to any other place in this area.

It was very nice and clean and cozy we would have liked the air-conditioner to have worked a little better!!! Upstairs was really warm the whole time!! And there's really no Beachview like in the advertisement !!

Owner's Response: We are sorry you were not satisfied with the condo. We do our best to please all guests. It is hard to cool an upstairs to the max when the outdoor temps and humidity are so high. Our description stated, "Each balcony has a partial gulf view" and did not state beach view. We do not lie to people...that is just the way we are. Again we are sorry you were unhappy.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Very nice 3 bed and 3 bath condo. I only wish it had an ocean view. Regardless, I didn't have to deal with elevators and a crowded beach. It was within short walking distance of Spinnaker which was also nice. I would definitely consider staying there again. Brenda (owner contact) was very helpful and easy to reach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you had a great time! Though we are not an ocean view, we do overlook the lake with a fountain and find it so peaceful to sit on the balcony and chill out.

Family friendly accommodation, short walk to beach and pool

  • 5 of 5

This Sugar Beach property worked well for our family stay in June 2016. The unit was well stocked with essentials and is located a short walk to the beach and pool. There are many restaurant and activities close by as well. It's nice that the owner allows use of beach toys and towels during your stay. We would consider this rental for a future trip.
