Emerald Beach condo description

Welcome to Dolphin Watch! Who will be the first to spot a pod of dolphins from the balcony? We love to watch for ocean life. Be sure to bring your binoculars. The views are amazing!

Our family has always enjoyed the beach. For years we came at least once a year. Time has passed and there are now seven grandchildren. We thought it was time for a beach home, so we purchased this condo in January of 2012 and are excited for the memories to be made here. We'd like to share our second home with you, and we think you'll love it as much as we do!

We have painted the entire condo and furnished it with items we feel are comfortable and relaxing. We have no carpet for those of you who suffer with allergies....all tile floors with area rugs for comfort.

Wyndham's Emerald Beach Resort is a five-star resort located directly on the world's most beautiful sugar-white beach. We love the family-friendly atmosphere at Emerald Beach. There are three pools, two of them heated, and one is a kids' pool located right beside a family pool. The kids' pool has splash buckets that fill and then dump to the delight of the children. There is also a mushroom fountain that the kids love, as well as a no-step, zero entrance area for those toddlers we have now. Of course, hot tubs are available at all the pools, as well as a tiki bar and a snack bar.

The beach is just steps away from the tower's door. There is no long boardwalk and multitude of steps. You will love the convenience this allows. A beach cart with beach chairs and an umbrella are in the condo (on the balcony) for you to use, or you can rent chairs and an umbrella on the beach.

When you arrive, you will have a code to enter the room, so there is no long wait to check in. You can choose valet parking or just unload the luggage at the entrance and then park your car in the covered garage across the street. Walk across the sky bridge SKY BAR and go down the escalator to the high-speed elevators to Emerald Beach.

Our condo has a MASTER BEDROOM with a comfortable king-sized bed, large dresser, and mirrored closet to store all your belongings. There is a full bath in the master bedroom with a garden tub/shower and curved shower rod for more room. A 27 inch plasma TV with a Playstation3 attached is on the dresser for your added pleasure. There is a pack/n play and a stroller in the closet for the little ones if you need it.

The HALLWAY has sturdy, comfortable bunk beds built in to the recess with a second full bathroom beside them. It also has a tub/shower combination. A laundry closet is also located in the hallway with a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Coming down the hall, you will be amazed at the large LIVING ROOM and gourmet KITCHEN! The slab granite countertops are beautiful, and the GE Profile appliances make your stay more pleasant. The kitchen is set up for your convenience, and we hope you love it as much as we do. You won't believe the huge double-door pantry in the kitchen. There is also a long breakfast bar with three sturdy and comfortable bar stools for extra seating while eating or just talking to the cook. The kitchen directly faces the floor to ceiling sliding doors that give that million dollar direct view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Living Room is very spacious. The condo has about 940 square feet inside, so you can spread out and enjoy the room. We have a Rowe Mfg. queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room for added sleep space if you need it. There is also a dining table and four chairs for dinners or playing cards or games. You could also use the large coffee table to play games. We have left some games, books, etc. under the TV console which holds the 42 inch plasma TV! There is also a DVD player attached to the TV. Cable television, wireless internet, and local phone service are provided for your convenience.

The floor to ceiling sliding doors take you out to the large BALCONY where you are sure to spend a great deal of time. There are four rocking style chairs with two tables for your morning coffee and danish as you watch the dolphins play, or your evening glass of iced tea or wine as you watch the amazing sunsets over the Gulf. One nice thing about the balcony is that it is private with no view of other condo balconies!

Yes, there is a STARBUCKS in the lobby! Yes, there is a SKY BAR (sports bar) over Front Beach Road, the only one in Panama City Beach. The workout room is modern and helps you work off those Starbucks calories! There is also a gift shop beside Starbucks. Activities are planned daily at the resort for children and adults. Look for the calendar posted in several spots. The amenities just go on and on.

Location, location, location. Emerald Beach Resort is located on the quieter West End of the beach and only one mile from PIER PARK! Pier Park is a shoppers paradise with more stores than I have room to name. It also has numerous restaurants such as Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville and The Back Porch. Tootsie's Orchid Lounge has live music or you could go to the 16 screen mega plex movie theater. Pier Park is the happening place on the beach and you are right there. Target and a new super WalMart are just down the street for groceries and supplies. The new Pier Park North is set to open in the spring of 2014! A new restaurant is also being built next door!

Golfing, Frank Brown Sports Park, Gulf World, Shipwreck Island water park, Dolphin cruises, Pirate cruises, Shell Island, St. Andrews park, diving, fishing, parasailing....and the list goes on and on. Come visit. We bet you'll want to make it an annual thing....just like we did.

Thank you for visiting our page and letting us share with you our 'home away from home.'

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  Why the Owner Chose Emerald Beach:
                  Emerald Beach Resort is in the perfect location on the beach. It is on the quieter west end and so close to Pier Park, Gulf World, and wonderful restaurants. Try Thomas' Donuts just down the road on Front Beach Road....or Sharky's just a skip away....or Jeannie's One Stop Diner across the street. Not to mention the Starbucks, cordial valet service, most beautiful beaches ever, and pools galore. The new super Walmart just opened in March of 2013 at Pier Park beside Target....very convenient and just a couple of blocks down. Did you know that Carrabas delivers to Emerald Beach?

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I love the high speed elevators to the condos and the escalators from the sky bridge to the condo elevators.
