Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Panama City Beach - Emerald Isle Gulf Beach Resort

1 King on Gulf w/bath, 1 King w/bath, pull out queen sofa, unit sleeps 6

Our Emerald Isle Penthouse unit is a Platinum level unit - every amenity required for this level is provided in our unit...and more. We are committed to ensuring that you have fresh sheets that exceed your expectations, towels that are soft and feel like new, and a clean condo that is decorated so that you feel like you are in a beach oasis.

This Emerald Isle true penthouse unit is on the west end to ensure the best view of a Panama City Beach sunset. Look to your left and see the pier park pier and in the distance, the first pier where all of the fireworks go off on weekends and holidays. You are front and center when folks are shooting fireworks on the beach, sometimes feeling like you can reach out and touch them. We have spacious rounded balconies making it easier to get a larger view of the beautiful emerald waters.

All new appliances were installed for the 2012 season, including convection oven, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator, as well as front load washer and dryer to make your clean up chores faster and easier for your family.

This unit comes with parking on the 3rd floor inside the building! No need to walk across Front Beach Road to get to the elevators! Beach chairs are included this year (2016), so no need to spend extra money for front row chairs on the beach. We have over 300 feet of private beach, with Security and Emerald Isle staff are onsite and on duty 24/7. All rules are enforced so that everyone's stay is safe and enjoyable!

Emerald Isle has continued to improve our building's amenities by adding new and expanded entries from the parking garage into the elevators, not only ensuring that you are in air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter, but also that you have plenty of room to load and unload your surf boards, umbrellas, and groceries easily and with plenty of room.

We added 4 new grills downstairs, along with dozens of new chaise lounges around the pool in our expanded patio areas.

Pier Park is 1 mile east, where you can enjoy shopping, dining, and rides and activities for the children. Walmart is no longer a 5 mile trek down to the east side of town, it is right at Pier Park! Now we have an amusement park for the children located right off Front Beach Road and right down the street from the main Pier Park entrances and called the Miracle Strip. We've spent untold hours with our grandchildren riding rides, getting their face painted and bouncing on anything that will stand still.

Across the street is Mike's where you can get a great breakfast in the morning, or seafood in the afternoon and evening. Winn Dixie is 1/2 mile to the east, or enjoy local shopping at Carousel just a few miles west - a local favorite!

There are too many activities to list, but pamphlets are available on the property so you can find just the right one to fit your family's interests.

About Emerald Isle Vacations

We live in Bixby, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa, where we are close to our children and grandchildren. We love the beach and fell in love with Panama City Beach when we came through in 2009. Owning this property and renting it to other families is part of our retirement planning and we are so happy to share our property with others.

Emerald Isle Vacations purchased this condo in 2011

Why Emerald Isle Vacations chose North West Florida

We were looking for a deal and we found it at Emerald Isle. We were also looking for a penthouse unit, and we found it at Emerald Isle. It is a great location, top floor keeps the noise down from the rest of the building, and we have the most spectacular views, views that can only be found on the top of the buildings.

What makes this condo unique

Emerald Isle is right on the beach. Our unit is a penthouse, 23rd floor with the most beautiful views you'll ever see. We have 2 pools, a hot tub, and 10 feet from the pool, is a prestine white beach. Enjoy the beach anyway your family wants, parasail, rent a waive rider, or just take in the sounds of a day at the beach.

Nice property, in a good location for our family.

  • 4 of 5

There was plenty of room for everyone. The place was well decorated with nice furniture and appliances, kitchenware. They have beach supplies, chairs, umbrella, other beach toys. The elavator's were fast, never a timely wait and we were on the top floor which gets you a covered parking spot on the beach side. It was nice, not having to walk across the road to get to our vehicle. I didn't see restrooms on the pool-beach floor, that was a bit of inconvenience at times. Shirley was easy to deal with and we never had any issues during our stay. Plenty of tv channel's the wi-fi we never tried to use. We just used our own verizon data, had good cell signal. We are already planning our next get-away to PCB and it will be at this property, hopefully with Shirley. The place is on the quiet west end, but very close to pier park and all the newer shopping and eating. I would recommend staying here if you get a chance. We've stay at several different properties, and this is toward the top of the list for us.

Car: recommended

Emerald Isle is on the beach, so everything you would expect is right out your back door. Beach chairs with umbrellas, parasailing, and tubes rides, are available from the vendors on our beach. Fishing trips can be scheduled from various vendors in the area. PCB has waterparks, Gulf World where you can interact with Dolphins and other sea life, and Pier Park for relaxing dining, shopping, and rides and activities for the children. All of this makes our Emerald Isle Condo the perfect location and Panama City Beach, FL the best way to enjoy your beach vacation.

Between May 15 and August 15, we rent from Saturday to Saturday. Renting short stays is not cost effective; however, we will rent to those requesting short stays of 5 days and will discount our weekly rates to assist in making it fair for you and for us. We will consider any combination of dates, so please submit your request to see if we can work something out for everyone. This note overrides all other documentation: CANCELLATION POLICY: Great than 30 days notice of cancellation is a fee of 3.5% of total rental. If less than 30 days notice is given -- THERE WILL BE NO REFUND! The 30 days is truly 30 days. If you rent from the 7th day of the month, then we will require you to inform us on the 6th day of the previous month, and the 5th day if the month has 31 days.

Rates are subject to change until reservations are confirmed.

Emerald Isle HOA mandates parking fees of $20 - providing renters with the parking pass for the car.

ID Bracelets are provided when renter pays parking fees and must be warn at all times on property.

Damage Protection Insurance covers breakage in the unit during your stay. Prior years, we have charged protection insurance that covered up to $1500 in damage. This year, because we had an entire sliding glass door shattered causing lost revenue and exposure to the elements for an extended period of time, we believe anything is possible and have now contracted for a higher limit to protect us and will keep us from coming back to you...within reason. This is not an invitation to break our furnishings because we have insurance. Damage believed to be inflicted by careless and unreasonable measures will be prosecuted both in the criminal and civil court systems, following the renter back to their home of origin. This is our property, our investment, our home and we expect those who rent to treat this BETTER than they would their own home.
