This high-rise condo overlooking the pure blue Gulf easily accommodates up to a dozen people. Bring your whole gang to stay in comfort and beauty while enjoying resort amenities and rock-star views.
When you stay at Summit 1506, the world is your oyster. Lounge on the open-air balcony, which is covered to protect from rain yet offers a mix of sunshine and shade during the day. From up here, you can look down on the pelicans gliding in to fish for their breakfast in the surf, and you can spot the occasional friendly fin of a dolphin swimming past. The sky and sea change constantly, the air is balmy and just slightly tinged with salt, and the beauty of the scene is simply amazing.
Come indoors from the balcony and find yourself in an airy, well-appointed, roomy condo just waiting for your big group to spread out and get comfortable. The living room seats a crowd, with an HDTV with DVD player and cable package ready to entertain the troops. Cool tiled flooring, ceiling fans, and light-toned decor all combine to create a pleasant "beachy" feel. One of the sofas opens up into a queen-sized bed, offering two lucky people in your party a dusk-to-dawn view of the sky and sea. There is plenty of room here for the kids to set up their Legos and the grown-ups to stretch out their legs and enjoy a little vacation downtime.
Just beyond the living area is the dining and kitchen area. Because of the open-plan design of Summit 1506, you can enjoy a panoramic view through the sliding glass doors even when you're in the heart of the kitchen! A cozy round table for 4 offers a great place to play cards, set up your laptops and tablets (you have free WiFi at Summit 1506), and spread out brochures of all the places you want to see in Panama City Beach. Of course, you can also use the table for dining, but somehow the balcony, with its promise of al fresco dining, usually lures everyone out!
But just because you dine in the open air doesn't mean the meal has to be informal. Even if you aren't planning on doing much cooking this trip, the kitchen at Summit 1506 may tempt you. Spotlessly clean and boasting handsome full-sized appliances, this kitchen is also packed with cookware, dishes, utensils, and a wide array of chef's tools and gadgets. Fearlessly prepare anything from pancakes to Thanksgiving dinner in this kitchen: you won't be short a glass or a knife! And if you just want to do quick appetizers and drinks, rely on the coffeemaker, blender, toaster, and microwave to see you through. The breakfast bar with 4 comfy padded chairs, located to one side of the kitchen, offers a great place for the kids to sit or your sous-chefs to chop vegetables as you prepare a feast!
While the living and dining areas of Summit 1506 are designed to keep everyone together, the 3 bedrooms are all wonderfully quiet and private. Getting a good night's sleep is critical for a successful vacation, and the accommodations at this condo will have everyone in your party waking with a smile! All linens are provided for every bed (including the sleeper sofa), and towel sets for all of the 3 bathrooms. There's even a stacked washer and dryer in the condo to keep everything clean and fresh -- so no need to worry about stashing a few extra beach towels or back-up changes of clothes in your suitcase!
There are two master suites at Summit 1506. One takes pride of place with private sliding-glass door access to the balcony, as well as a king-sized bed, private flat-screen TV, and good strong reading lamps. It's so heavenly to enjoy gorgeous views -- as well as the distant murmur of the surf -- at all hours of the night and morning. Toast your good fortune with a late-night glass of wine on the balcony, then retire to your room to watch the late-night comedians on TV, catch up on social media, or pick up that long-delayed mystery novel. Leave the drapes open to enjoy the night sky, or close them tight and sleep late into the morning. The en-suite bathroom, with both shower and tub option, means that you don't have to venture down the hall until you're ready for the day!
The second suite is a huge room containing not one but two king-sized beds. This is ideal for children, grandparents, and couples traveling with little ones who prefer to sleep in the same room as their parents. The en-suite bath with shower and tub eliminates standing in line during the morning rush, and everyone appreciates the flat-screen TV, dresser, ceiling fan, and desk. This is a great room for afternoon naps, too -- soothing, spacious, and wonderfully private!
The third bedroom is also ideal for kids, as well as for friends traveling with you. It contains two queen-sized beds, a wall-mounted HDTV, plenty of storage space, and a bright and festive decor. It is convenient to the third full bathroom, which is just steps away down the hall.
And when you stay at the Summit Resort, you have access to all the on-site amenities: 2 big gulf-front swimming pools (one of which is heated in winter), 2 kiddie pools, an indoor hot tub, a poolside tiki bar, and even a convenience store and hamburger joint! You are just steps from the white sands of Panama City Beach, with gentle Gulf tides and gorgeous views. Come stay at Summit 1506 very soon, and make this place your Gulf home-away-from-home!
