Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Condo was just the right size for us and right across the street from the beach. People were friendly around us. Loved that all I had to do Was use a code to check in. I bought a broom and left it there because there wasn't one but other than that everything was great!!

We arrived to Panama city in the middle of August. It was kind of off season. There were people but not too many. There was a crazy storm that had the beaches closed for 3 of the days we were there but we still had a good time. It was very relaxing. The house was fully equipped. The Internet was very slow. We took our fire stick to watch netflix but couldn't get it to work. We had everything we need to cook. The beach was across the street. I do agree another mirror in the house would be nice since there's only one bathroom. The house was very clean, we had a good time would definitely return.

Quiet & Clean

  • 4 of 5

This was our family's first time to the Gulf Coast so a family friend recommended that we stay on the north side away from the heavily trafficked area. The condo searching can be a daunting task so when I came across this condo it seemed via internet pictures to be clean, updated and cost effective for our family of 4. The condo did indeed look like the pictures we viewed on the internet, very clean and updated. The only issues worthy of repeating we encountered with the condo were the lack of mirrors, the ceiling fan in the second bedroom didn't work, the size of the condo was a bit small for our family, and the 3 flights of stairs can be trying when initially unloading or re-loading your car for arrival and departure. We didn't really mind the stairs on a day to day basis we looked at it as additional exercise! :) We didn't use any of the "perks" that were included with our stay because we don't like being tied to a scheduled task. Overall the condo was a nice quiet place to stay but lacked the action that we craved and if we return we will definitely stay closer to the south side. I would however recommend this condo to a family of 2 to 4 that wants to visit Panama Beach but doesn't want to stay in the middle of the hustle and bustle. While you are in town you have to try the donuts at Thomas's and the oysters at Dusty's!!!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed this lovely little jewel. It is a great deal located with easy beach access in the quiet section of Panama City Beach. We will definitely pass along your feedback about extra mirrors to the owner and the ceiling fan in the 2nd bedroom has been replaced. We agree with you that Thomas Donuts is a must! Thank you for staying with us and we hope that you'll join us again on the south side of Panama City Beach. We have a lot of accommodations to choose from there and fantastic fall rates!

It was clean and quiet, but the "free perks" were not so impressive.

  • 3 of 5

This condo was very clean, and was in a quiet part of the vacation zone on Front Beach Road in Panama City. The condo sleeps 6 but has only one bathroom. This would not generally have been much of an issue, but there was also only 1 mirror in the entire condo, which was the small one over the sink in the bathroom. I would recommend that the owner install more mirrors, and at least one of them a full length one.

There were no directions to find the dumpster to empty our trash cans at the end of our stay.

Also, there were no maps or directions for where the closest beach access was. This was easy to find out, but it would have been nice to at least be pointed in the right direction.

We did enjoy the cruise to shell island, but the description of a glass bottom boat was a bit misleading. The movie rental box that we were able to locate for the free movie rentals was not conveniently located. If there were others closer by, then that would have been something that should have been posted in the condo. The zip line deal was not worth the effort. Perhaps small kids would find it fun, but being from a mountainous area, we found the zip line ridiculous for the price. The dolphin world thing was also not worth the price of an extra ticket. Perhaps, again, small children would like it, but we were not entertained.

I chose this condo for the "additional free perks" of a free ticket a day to 3 events, plus 2 free movie rentals". I would not stay here again for the price, as it is not conveniently located to anything other than a beach and a winn dixie.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We advertise that the condo only has 1 bath. This is a remodeled, but budget-friendly accommodation, well-suited to serve small families, not a large party of adults. The price of this condo is excellent and most people choose it because it is not in the hustle and bustle of Panama City Beach. The beach access is very close. We have photos of the beach access with the photos of the condo and haven't experienced guests having issues with this before. We do our best to provide our guests with easy access to us. You can contact us through the app, email us or call our 24/7 maintenance with any questions. Sorry you didn't enjoy your free tickets to the activities. All the activities are available for your perusal before you book, and they are different depending on the area of the coast you stay in. The Destin area, Forgotten Coast area and Okaloosa Island have completely different activities available. We are sorry you were disappointed with your stay.
