Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms 1 Bathroom Sleeps 6

Welcome to "Island Time"! That's what we call our adorable 2 bedroom, one bath unit in the low-rise Sand Castles West complex. Sand Castles West is directly across the street from the beautiful Emerald Coast beaches of Panama City Beach, Florida. Island time is a NON-SMOKING unit.

Back when our youngest son was a Boy Scout we accompanied him to a week-long adventure in the Florida keys called "Sea Base." It's there we were introduced to the concept of "Island Time" -- where you just live for the moment and don't worry about the clock. We've always remembered the feeling and that became the inspiration for this vacation home on the sunny Gulf coast.

We're located on the highly desirable, family friendly west side of Panama City Beach... miles away from the noise and party crowds you'll find on the east side. Sand Castles West is about 1 mile west of the fabulous Pier Park shopping resort.

Island Time is in Building G in the Sand Castles West complex (the closest building to the beach). It's about 200 steps from the corner of the stairwell to the beach access. If you prefer a dip in an immaculately maintained pool, one of our complexes two pools is just at the other end of the building.

Sand Castles West is a "low rise" complex, not a massive concrete complex with remote parking and maddening long waits for slow (and far too-few elevators). Our unit is on the second floor (just one flight of stairs up from the parking lot). You'll have a stress-free vacation with lots of amenities, shopping, and of course the gorgeous beaches literally at your fingertips.

The unit itself can comfortably sleep 6 with 2 bedrooms (each with a queen size bed) and a pull-out queen sleeper sofa in the living room. There are three flat-screen TVs (one in the living room and one in each bedroom). The kitchen is cozy but functional and well-stocked, and the entire condo is tastefully decorated and beach themed to enhance your experience!

WiFi is included so bring all your devices, and the unit has its own washer and dryer so you don't have to waste your valuable vacation time sitting at a laundromat.

We're very "budget friendly" for a 2 bedroom unit so well maintained and close to the beach, so come get away and enjoy some "Island Time"!

Great Property and Good Location

  • 5 of 5

Really nice condo unit. It was clean, even smelled clean when we walk in the door.

We liked not having to worry with a key. The coded entry lock worked great. Fully stocked kitchen with all we needed plus. Vicki was super nice and made sure everything was to our expectations. She was quick to respond to any questions we had about the unit. Just west of Prier Park, makes the complex a great location. Easy beach access almost directly across the road.

The prefect spot

  • 4 of 5

The place was great! Up front parking. View of the ocean from the porch. Walked across the street for beach access. Please be careful though no one abides by the cross walk. I don't know how many times we almost got hit walking across the street in the cross walk!

The place came with all necessities except laundry soap. A grocery store was a short walk away so no big deal. Cons: we found long black hairs on the shower wall and floor like it was not cleaned. There was sand in the bed like the sheets were not washed. No laundry soap.

Pros: Close to the beach, view of ocean, very quiet condo, up front parking, in walking distance to beach, grocery store, and restaraunts.

Overall it is a great place and I would definitely stay again!!

Owner's Response: Alese, we're glad you enjoyed your stay at Island Time and are sorry you encountered some problems. If you had contacted us during your stay, we would have had our cleaners go over and make things right - our cleaners are usually very thorough and we get high marks for cleanliness of the unit. Our cleaners are supposed to bring freshly washed sheets each time the unit is cleaned (after each guest checks out). I will be discussing the issues you mentioned with them. Also, before your stay you should have received an email stating what was provided - laundry soap is nothing something most owners (including us) provide.
