From the balcony of this top floor Penthouse condo it actually feels like you can see forever- the sun sparkles off the aqua waters of the Gulf, and the sugary white beaches of the Emerald Coast pull your eye to the horizons.
Just minutes from the new International Airport and Pier Park, you are in Tropic Winds, the newest development in Panama City Beach located on the prestigious and quiet west end. The condo and everything in it is brand new, from its comfortable, inviting furnishings to the well-equipped kitchen. It’s a perfect retreat whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, or a fun-filled vacation.
Upon arrival, you’ll park in your reserved, covered parking place just a few feet from the elevators. No schlepping luggage and groceries from afar, or trying to find a place to park each time you return. Unique to this development, and one of its best features, is the spacious, over sized balcony – 280 sq. ft – the largest in Panama City Beach! This huge space affords another living area, and with the table & chairs, bistro table and lounge chairs, there is plenty of room for everyone.
Before you strike out to see what Panama City Beach has to offer, we invite you to first tour your condo. With both the master bedroom and the living room opening onto the large balcony, you’ll find a bright, cheery home with some special features to enhance your perfect vacation. * Free Wi-Fi * Free long distance, including International. * A 42” flat screen HDTV in the living room with state of the art Blu-ray DVD player. * Each bedroom has its own HDTV and DVD player. * A selection of DVDs is available. * CD player has Ipod docking stations. * Both the master and guest bedrooms feature king size beds with upgraded comfy pillow top mattresses. * Queen size sleep sofa with bedding. * Two Free Beach chairs/umbrella service. * Beach towels * Books… “Take one/leave one”… relax on the beach, or curl up on the balcony, and lose yourself in a book with the peaceful serenade of the waves to keep you company.
Now it’s time to get out and explore! Of course there are plenty of “beach” things to do, starting with Tropic Winds own private 300 feet of white sandy beach. For a change, check out Shell Island, a natural, undeveloped island which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrews Bay. It is home to one of the world's highest concentrations of bottle-nosed dolphins, and the island's pristine beauty and abundant wildlife make it an enjoyable and exciting way to spend the day. Even the short shuttle boat ride over is part of the adventure!
In addition to all of the fun and exciting beach activities you would expect to find, you are also conveniently located to Pier Park, a new open air complex right on Front Beach Road with extensive shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. Familiar retailers and restaurants have made a home in the largest retail center in Northwest Florida. With its beautifully landscaped walking paths, a park for summer concerts and festivals, and The Southern Theater’s Grand Theater which offers 16 movie theaters, there is something for everyone. Just down the road is the Frank Brown Park, a recreational facility with baseball fields, playgrounds, fishing and picnic areas, and an aquatic center.
Ready to hit the Links? There are several nearby golf courses nestled amidst wetlands, marshes, lakes, and preserves, all framed with a stunning assortment of palms, pines, sea grass and azaleas. Every golfer can find an enjoyable challenge!
We know you have many options and believe our condo offers a perfect beach getaway. We look forward to providing you a quiet, relaxing, ocean-side home, convenient to world-class shopping, dining and recreation.

About the owner: We are avid scuba divers and have always loved the ocean and the life it supports. As an active duty military family, we lived in the country of Panama for 2 years and had the opportunity to visit some awesome beaches and dive sites in Central and South America. But, our fondest memories over the years are of those family summer vacations at the sea shore... the fun of building sand castles for the waves to wash away, those morning runs on the beach, relaxing on a beach chair to soak up the rays while reading a favorite book, and endless hours shelling for that special find. After retiring near Atlanta, GA over 10 years ago, we began coming to Panama City Beach for its diving, emerald waters and sugar white sands. This past year we realized a life long dream to own our very own beach home by buying a penthouse unit at Tropic Winds!
Why the Owner Chose Tropic Winds: We loved the freshness of the new development and its location on the quiet west end of Panama City Beach. It's far enough away from the crowds and traffic to be relaxing, but just a few minutes to restaurants, Pier Park, the new International Airport, and all the fun and excitement the beach has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The one-of-a-kind large balcony provides another living space where you can enjoy a 'picnic' or just relax and soak in the view. At the end of a fun, but tiring day there is no hassle looking for a place to park. The assigned/deeded parking spot just a few feet from the elevator is always available.
