Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in North West Florida - Emerald Isle Resort

2 Bedroom / 2.0 Bathroom Sleeps 6

Welcome to our desirable end unit in Emerald Isle Resorts, one of the nicest buildings on the beach (built in 2005). Emerald Isle is consistently voted in the top 10. It's a bit quieter on the west end of Panama City Beach, but just 1.2 miles from the phenomenal Pier Park development, with a multi-screen movie theatre, restaurants, and more. Our location makes getting places easy--from Seaside and Rosemary Beach to the west, and the Gulf World Marine Park, golf courses, and more lively areas of Panama City Beach to the east. The new international airport is just a few miles north on Rt. 79.

Our vacation home is a larger end unit with over 1200 sq. ft. and the largest beach- and gulf-view balcony on the beach ... 10' x 27' with table, chairs and loungers. Enjoy gulf views from the kitchen, dining area, living room area, master bedroom. The gulf and beach views from the balcony are a full 180 degrees. We have seen dolphins and manta rays frolicking in the surf. The master is ocean-side and has a premium king bed. The 2nd bedroom also has a king bed, private entrance to the 2nd bath and a window facing the sunrise, not the noisier walkway. Both bedrooms have wall-mounted TV’s. The living room has a 55 inch flat screen TV. All TV’s are equipped with DVD players. If you have to or want to keep in touch, don't forget your laptop as Wi-Fi is provided. Also, our 2014 rates include beach chairs during the season (March-October).

Emerald Isle offers covered parking on both sides of the street (covered catwalk), gulf front indoor and outdoor pools with newly-expanded seating areas, large hot tub, an exercise room facing the gulf, BBQ grills, and use of the tennis courts next door at The Landmark. Sorry, but we are NON-SMOKING/NO PETS and adult renters MUST BE 25 YEARS OLD or more. We require a $250 security deposit. Our published rates do not include Fla.taxes.

We hope you love this place as much as we do!

About Gary and Donna Huston

We are a couple of empty nesters from Baton Rouge, LA that have finally been able to achieve our dream of owning beach front property. We love the Panama City Beach area and all it has to offer.

Gary and Donna Huston purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gary and Donna Huston chose North West Florida

After looking at numerous properties up and down the beach we liked the Emerald Isle location. The property is well maintained. The views from the very spacious balcony are just incredible.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is just over a mile from Pier Park and the dining, shopping, and entertainment this area provides. Jump in the car and head east or west, both directions provide things to do whether you like the energy of the central beach area or that of the little communities along the shore.

Fantastic

I have stayed at many different condos at Emerald Isle and while they have all been nice, none compare to this condo. I could not have asked for anything or anyone nicer to deal with. The owners have everything you need.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this condo the last week of June. It was absolutely amazing! We have stayed at Emerald Isle five times and this was by far the nicest, cleanest, and most desirable unit. It is located on the 12th floor and is an end unit. Therefore there is no traffic coming by your door and the balcony is huge! The beds were more comfortable than I place I have ever stayed. The unit was stocked fully and working with the owners was a breeze. I received my security deposit back the week after we returned. I would highly recommend this unit and these owners to anyone looking for a great vacation in PCB. We will definitely be returning.

We had a wonderful time staying in this unit. The kitchen is very well stocked. The condo itself smelled great! Everything was very clean and the condo was decorated so nicely! It made it that much more of an enjoyable stay! The view from the 12th floor end unit is beautiful! We recommend staying here and we will be back!!!!

Best rental we've had!

  • 5 of 5

In the 8 years hubby & I have been semi snow birding from the great white north, this is the best condo we've rented. We are winding up our 3 months here in PCB and except for some funky weather, it has been a great stay. The kitchen is fabulous - very well equipped with all you need to cook and entertain. There were 5 other couples from our community back home staying in the area, so we definitely did entertain. The unit is spacious and the balcony is huge, with a large table and six chairs plus loungers. Condo is well furnished and decorated with warm colours. Emerald Isle property is very well maintained and the staff are efficient and very friendly. Owners Donna & Gary were so great to work with and very quick with response time for any inquiries. Would recommend this property and condo to anyone, but not for Jan, Feb or Mar of 2017, cause we've already booked it!!

Great condo and great trip!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming the Emerald Isle for the past 4 years and have always been happy with our stay. This was our first stay in this unit and were very pleased. The unit was very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the little extra space that the end unit provided. The beds were super comfortable and loved the pillows! My husband is on a mission find some of the same kind for our house! Of course our favorite part of the condo is always the balcony! I spent every morning and evening there just listening to the ocean. Gary and Donna were very easy to work with and answered all questions in a timely manner. We had a great time and would like to thank Gary and Donna for the use of their nice condo!
