About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Emerald Beach Resort and Spa is one of the most luxurious beach experiences available along the emerald shores of Panama City Beach. Enjoy your own private get away, with pure, sugar white sand, emerald green water, and a FIRST CLASS facility. Our unit has an unobstructed view of the beach and ocean. The pool is close, but not in front of our unit, so the balcony has complete privacy.

There is a bellman, valet and doorman service- 24 hours a day, and On-site Concierge Service!!!

There is a fully equipped exercise room!!!

OUR UNIT IS ON THE THIRD FLOOR, which is the entry floor over the sky-bridge from the covered parking garage, and leads directly downstairs to facilities in the building, and outdoors to a pool and the beach. No need to use the elevator. No need to wait in line for the elevator, though they are available if you have need for them. But, our unit has an interior entry-way, so there's no high, long, and narrow outside entry-way balcony to deal with, especially with children who are afraid of heights. And, since the 3rd floor is connected to the sky bridge with 6 short stairs steps, and an escalator to the lobby, getting to and from is very easy. Once inside the unit, there is total privacy, from people and noise.

This professionally decorated condo has Living Room and Master Bedroom facing the Gulf--with an unobstructed view of the ocean-- another full sized Bedroom with queen bed, and built in bunk beds in the hall! With the pull out queen sized sleep sofa, the unit can easily sleep 8. The modern kitchen comes with new GE appliances and granite counter tops--fully furnished. Master bath has whirlpool tub and marble counter tops. There is tile floor in the bathrooms and kitchen and carpet in the living areas. You’ll have a wonderful, unobstructed view of the Ocean and pristine sugary sand beach from a spacious balcony.

Across from the resort, and connected by an enclosed overpass, is a covered parking garage for residents and guests only, along with another pool. A Starbucks Coffee shop is on the property. A fully equipped exercise room is also on the property. A parking pass in required and provided to you. The first floor houses the main arrival lobby.

We have two folding beach chairs for use, along with beach towels. All TVs have all HBO channels for free plus HBO on demand--at no extra cost. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped. A printer and pak'n'play are available upon request.

This unit is a non-smoking unit. No pets allowed. No renters under the age of 25.

About The Owner

Harry and Barbara Shepler

Proud owners of unit 330

on the 3rd floor

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose Panama City Beach

We bought our condo at Emerald Beach Resort in March of 2006. We hope someday in the distant future to retire there. Therefore, we want to keep our unit in tip top shape for the future, and rent now to responsible families who enjoy the beach and want a beautiful experience in our unit as well. We bought because this was advertised as the best resort on the beach, and we think they were right. Also, it's nice being so close to Pier Park. We love it there.

What makes this condo unique

We particularly enjoy the ocean view from the master bedroom. It brings the ocean right in to the condo, and is so relaxing. We discovered that one can sit in the jacuzzi in the master bath, and by keeping the bathroom door open, have a clear view right out to the ocean. We love to relax and listen to the waves come ashore. We also like the fact that our balcony is private. The swimming pool is not underneath us, so there is not excess noise. It is so relaxing.

Lovely Unit! Confusing Resort!

  • 4 of 5

The room we stayed in was lovely. It was clean and had everything we needed. Including a stroller that we had forgotten! The owners of the unit let us check in early that day which was wonderful! It gave us an extra day on the beach! The resort itself is somewhat confusing. You are not allowed to bring outside drinks to their pool, which gets very expensive when you have kids or enjoy having a few cocktails or beers while your lounging by the pool. Our family usually has a cooler with us fully stocked for the day. Not that we do not enjoy having a tiki bar available, but do not want to pay $8 for a drink all day long. The bartender was terrible at that! The beach service staff was the worst I've ever seen. Normally in PCB they are very nice and accommodating. They did not ask to reposition our umbrellas, griped about not receiving tips from people, told my kids they couldn't feed the seagulls a few crackers (in a secluded spot that was not around anyone) and put us on the back row where we were looking at the back of chairs in front of us instead of the beautiful water because they said those chair were already occupied when they clearly weren't. Almost the entire row was empty all day long, in fact they took the cushions up at lunch time which proved that they had not been rented. We had a friend that the chairs came with her room and she asked to be on the front row and they told her that the front row was for paying customers. She had payed for a room that had chairs available, which means that the owner had rented the chairs. Does that not qualify as a paying customer? I think it does.

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, we knew we had chosen a great condo. From the incredible beach front view, to easy access, to location near Pier Park. Condo is clean, welcoming and comfortable. Enjoyed biking, eating out, hot tub and on-demand movies. Definitely coming back.
