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"!

Short but Sweet Beach Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great short trip to Panama City Beach. Once we got to the beach, and it was our time to check in, we got right in and put away our stuff. The condo was so cute! The perfect size for what we need. I also loved there was movies, games, and even beach stuff to play with! The renters checked with us and made sure everything was the way it needed to be, so that we were happy with our stay. We will definitly be coming back again! Oh and the water and beaches were beautiful!!

Steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Vicki was super helpful in answering any questions we had. Cute and charming place. Unfortunately it rained most of our vacation and the ocean was closed due to tropical storms. But we made the most of our vacation. Pool was great for the kids. Make sure you don't leave out any items outside the door to dry out because it is a fire hazard. Overall GREAT place and I highly recommend.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 nights at Tim and Vicki's property and was impressed. We are a family of 5, with three growing kids (14, 13, and 11) and the accommodations suited us just fine. The location was ideal and easy access across the street from the beach. Early during the stay we had a "mini" family reunion with family from Auburn staying at the Palmetto across the street which also made it convenient.

Having a kitchen and laundry facilities made life great. The grocery store is within walking distance which was also great. We should have packed a lot less clothes since we had the convenience of laundry facilities. We typically did a least one-load per night.

We spend very little time at the pool but instead the beach, but it was maintained daily and the water was warm.

The AC worked great in the place - big thing for us warm blooded family. Not being used to humidity this was a nice thing to come "home too" every day.

There are restaurants within walking distance too. Our favorite by far was Eat My Patsy who serves up some great Irish food and amazing hamburgers.

Parking never was an issue - always parking right next to the condo.

The only thing my wife and I didn't care for was the queen size bed and the softness of the mattress in bedroom 1. We are used to a firmer mattress and sleeping on a king size - this doesn't deter from our rating of 5 stars - simply put we loved our stay and would easily do it again. In fact, there is talk about doing a reunion next year at the same time.

Tim and Vicki were super quick in getting back to us with questions from the get go, and in fact we arrived 30 minutes before the 4pm check-in and they immediately supplied a new door lock code within minutes. The door lock code was very cool and we all had it memorized and didn't have to worry about carrying around a card key or keys.

Thanks for reading my ramble...
