Our unit, which we purchased brand-new in October of 2009, is conveniently situated on the eighth floor, which is high enough to offer privacy and great views of the gulf, beach, pier and marine life while not making you feel queasy to look down. Conveniently-located high-speed elevators will zoom you to and from the beach.
As of October of 2014, we have replaced the furniture in the living room and eating areas, providing a brand new sleeper sofa, comfy chair, coffee and end tables, bar stools, glass-top dining table and chairs - all in a Tommy Bahama theme.
This unit features one bedroom and a separate bunk room (with a door) housing a “twin over full” bunk bed sleeping three people, two full baths, a spacious, upscale kitchen, a dining area with chairs and a table fox six, and a comfortable queen sleeper sofa in the living area, offering comfortable total sleeping accommodations for up to seven people.
Our unit boasts dark wood cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico from the master bedroom, living area and deep balcony.
Both the master bedroom and the living room open onto a deep balcony overlooking the gulf, beach, pool and pier. Enjoy a casual breakfast at the patio table as you look for dolphins, or sit in the reclining lounge chair and watch the sun set over the pier.
At night, enjoy the best of cable television or a DVD on any of the three HDTV’s. Wall-mounted 42 inch HDTV’s have been professionally installed in the living area and master bedroom, and a 26 inch HDTV has been wall-mounted in the bunk room as well. Enjoy home theater sound in the living room and master bedroom.
The master bedroom’s HDTV has been ideally placed on the wall for optimum viewing from the king-size bed, or you may prefer to simply watch the sun set over the pier from your bed through the private door to the balcony.
The HDTV’s in the living area and bunk room are mounted on full-tilt swivels and can be adjusted vertically or horizontally with a telescoping arm for a perfect picture from any location. All three televisions are equipped with DVD players, including a Sony Playstation 3 (with games) in the living area, which also functions as a Blu Ray player. Hook up your iPod to the sound systems in the living room and master bedroom to enjoy your favorite music wherever you are.
If you’re up for a game of cards or a board game, sit around the table for six and make the most of your time with family and friends, or sit on the private balcony and take in the relaxing sounds of the surf. Turn on some music or retire to the bedroom with a good book to round out a relaxing evening.
The kitchen is well-appointed with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a large pantry and lots of cabinet space, and it is equipped with everything you need to heat up something quick or make a gourmet meal.
The unit also features its own washing machine and dryer for your convenience.
Located just 2,500 feet from Pier Park, Aqua is just a short stroll down the beach from the best Panama City Beach has to offer in dining, shopping and entertainment.
The newest and most exciting development in years, Pier Park features approximately 900,000 square feet of open-air retail space featuring 200 specialty shops, department stores and restaurants, including Ron Jon Surf Shop, a Super Target, Dillard’s, J.C. Penney, Hollister, Aeropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, Beach Scene, Justice, Victoria’s Secret, Zales and Kay Jewelers.
The award-winning design of Aqua is fittingly centered on the theme of water, and water seems to flow everywhere on the property, from the entrance sign, to the lobby, to the cascading water features leading to the spacious resort-quality pools, and of course at the expansive white sand beach in the Open Sands area of Panama City Beach.
No matter what time of the year you visit Aqua, you will enjoy first-class amenities, including an indoor-outdoor, heated pool, indoor hot tub with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool and gulf, a separate outdoor pool, pool-side café with wall-mounted TV’s, luxury lounge chairs, covered cabanas, and two outdoor grills.
If you enjoy exercising with a view, you will love Aqua’s gulf-front fitness facility furnished with gym-quality equipment, including resistance machines, recumbent bikes, elliptical machines, and treadmills. Many of these have their own TV’s if you ever tire of views of the gulf, sun and pool.
You can relax in style with friends in the wood-paneled study, or you may want to reserve the banquet hall to host one of the popular weddings on the beach, a large family gathering, or a business meeting or retreat.
After a workout, enjoy the private steam room or schedule a personal massage across the hall.
Jet ski rentals, banana boat rides, beach umbrella lounge chairs, parasailing, and Shell Island tours can all conveniently be reserved right on Aqua’s private beach. If you prefer even more seclusion, a large stretch of beach remains undeveloped in the direction of the pier.
Kids’ activities are available during the peak season and include events such as sand castle building and movie nights. Walk across the street and take a helicopter ride down the beach for a sightseeing trip you won't soon forget.

Walking Distance to Pier Park and the City Pier - longest pier on the Gulf Coast.
Year Purchased: 2009
Why the Owner Chose Aqua: We purchased this unit new in October 2009. This is the nicest condo development within walking distance of Pier Park, which has quickly become the premier destination in Panama City Beach for dining, shopping and entertainment.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: As the owners, we have spent several thousand dollars upgrading the unit over and beyond the standard Aqua features: 1. Professionally wall-mounted 3 HDTV's 2. Added crown molding throughout the condo 3. Added an actual door to the bunk room. The standard bunk rooms in other units at Aqua do not have doors. Our bunk room features a 'single over full' bunkroom which comfortably sleeps 3. 4. The TV in the bunkroom has a built-in DVD player. 5. We replaced and upgraded all of the standard ceiling fans and prominent light fixtures. 6. Of course, we had the unit professionally painted throughout.
