The cutest studio condo in Panama City Beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo is bright, clean, and so well thought-out. So many details that will make your stay more enjoyable. There's plenty of space to unpack and then store your luggage in a big closet. The kitchen is nice to cook meals, for the times you don't want to go out. The beds are very comfortable. And the communication and arrangement with the owners were great.

Nicely remodeled room

  • 4 of 5

Room was nice, and the owners were great to work with when I contacted them upon our arrival. My only concern was the overall building is a bit outdated; however, the grounds and pool area were well maintained.

We had an amazing time staying here! The condo is absolutely adorable. They have all the accommodations that we needed. The location was perfect and the view from the room is awesome. The building is definitely older, but very family friendly and the pool area is nice. Would definitely recommend this place

The room was so nice and functional. The view from the window at night was gorgeous, and the small kitchen was perfect for the nights we stayed in and had dinner together. The only flaw was the beds were very hard, but other than that this place is a perfect vacation spot for up to 4 people. I will definitely be keeping this place on my list for our next visit to Panama City Beach.

Great little room. The owners did a beautiful job on their renovation.

The building has a few places that need attention but the room was great; a good price too. The owners make the most out of the space they have. Will defiantly stay here again.
