Great stay - you won't be sorry for choosing this place
"The location is excellent. You have easy access to get to anywhere. There is a grocery store close and I recommend the sandbar restaurant that is very close. There are beach chairs in the closet which was really nice - didn't have to fool with reserving a lounger. The view is spectacular. The balcony in general is superb. The bed is very comfortable and I slept like a dream. There was adequate utensils and cups etc. The trash chute is handy. The parking was perfect. The staff/security for the facility was great. The beach access was perfect. There is really nothing I would have changed about this place. I also got my deposit back very quickly. I look forward to staying here again. After you book your reservation and before your stay, you will get an email with everything you need to know for your stay. Read it completely and you will know everything you need to know to have a great stay."

"We just got home yesterday and are ready to head back. Staying on the 23rd floor was awesome and though the elevator ride was long it was worth it. The kids have all asked if we can go back again and stay here next year! The kitchen was perfect size and had all the items we needed to use to cook for the family. The grills they had down by the pools are awesome, dads grilled, kids played in the pool and moms caught a few more rays! The bathrooms were large and easy to get the little ones ready for bedtime in and they loved watching Jaw's in the bed at night. Our only concerns were that we arrived a few minutes after 4 and the condo was just starting to be cleaned for our stay, they apologized and took care of the cleaning, and did great other than under the daybed in the front room, it still had some dusty clothes from another guest. Thank you for allowing our family to enjoy your vacation home during the Holiday. The fireworks were awesome to watch from so high up!!"

"Our first time in Panama City beach in 25 Years we absolutely loved this condo with beautiful view, great deco and extra large deck. The owner was absolutely wonderful the easiest and niceness lady to deal with I can't say enough good things about her. I give this unit 1208 Emerald Isle a 5 star"

"Our family has been to PCB five times in the last three years. We have stayed at four different resorts and one of them twice. Emerald Isle is by far the best and we will not look farther. The resort is off the beaten path of all the traffic and congestion of Front Beach Road yet still on Front Beach Road and close to everything. The beach (with two beach chairs included in the condo rental) is beautiful and not over crowded. The resort itself gives you four elevators which are quick and easy to get up and down. NO CRAZY WAITING like with the other larger resorts. Now, the CONDO!! The BEST on the beach! The balcony is worth the rental by itself! It is one of the largest on the beach and gives you views as far as the eye can see. We spotted dolphins jumping around in the early morning. As for the condo, as soon as you walk in you feel right at home. It is beautifully decorated with all the beach colors and the furniture fits the theme. Five of us stayed a week and we had more than enough room. You have two great size bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a pull out sofa and an elevated queen air mattress in the closet if needed. The condo came stocked with plenty of towels and little extras. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook or if you just want to stock up with your favorites for the week. HUGE plus is the FULL size stackable washer and dryer. I have already reached out to the owner and let him know we will book again next year as soon as we firm up our vacation dates for next summer. We go twice a year and will stay at his condo both times. Check in time is 2pm which is FANTASTIC! You have time to unpack and get situated, then go to the grocery store before all the 4pm check-in folks arrive. This is a huge plus. If any of you have been to PCB and to the grocery store on a Saturday evening, you know exactly what I am talking about. The crowds are ridiculous! Check out is 9am which for some may not be a great thing, but for us it works perfectly. You are out before everyone else checks out and on the road before the heavy traffic starts back home.
Doug, the owner is wonderful to work with and truly wants you to have a wonderful time on your vacation. He also has a closet full of beach toys the kids can use!!
I highly recommend rental of this condo. YOU won't be disappointed!!
Doug, thank you and your family for sharing!!! Until next year!!"
