About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Ocean Reef #807 is situated directly on one of 'The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches' and is unlike other condos in Panama City Beach. We only have 161 units, over 320 feet of fine sandy beach frontage and we are not located next to other high-rise condos. Being on the West side of PCB means our beach frontage is less crowded and traffic is not as congested as other parts of the city.

Walk on into this condo and you will be amazed at the fresh, bright, new colors and I promise you will feel right at home! Kitchen is equipped with gourmet amenities including a Keurig coffee machine. Getting in late? No worries, there will be a couple of pods to get you through the next morning while sitting on the spacious balcony and listening to the waves come crashing in. It is also equipped with new pots/pans and utensils for you to make your own meals if you so choose. We also provide a regular Coffee Mate coffee machine for you to brew whole pots of coffee. New Dishwasher 1/2018. New stove coming March 19, 2018.

The 10’ x 28’ Balcony that must be one of the most perfect places to sit back and relax and is nothing short of Spectacular. It is outfitted with table and chairs for a beautiful sunset dinner, brand new outdoor couch to lay on to read a book and 2 deep seating chairs to enjoy a cup of coffee and the sunrise. It is the most absolute perfect place to start your day off with a cup of coffee and to end it while the waves lull you to sleep. You might even get to see the dolphins out playing!

Living room has been upgraded with a 48" Smart Flat Screen TV equipped with upgraded cable channels and plenty of sitting options. Fresh new paint colors and furniture as of 3/10/18.

Master bedroom is freshly painted and equipped with a king size bed, new Pottery Barn Bedding, , luxury thread count sheets, new mattress as of 3/2018, 43" flat screen TV, private bathroom with double sink, shower and tub, and access to the balcony where you have a BEAUTIFUL full view of the Gulf. Have a little one and need a play pen? You can find that in the closet!

The second bedroom has been freshly painted and upgraded with new bedding for the king size bed, luxury thread count sheets, and a new mattress as of 3/2018. Has a full size dresser, flat screen TV, upgraded cable channels and has access to the guest bathroom.

We provide all your linens, dishes and cookware, and liquid hand soap at each bathroom sink and Dawn dish soap at the kitchen sink. Six bath towels/wash cloths, kitchen towels and an individually wrapped Scotch Brite sponge are also provided. A full size washer and dryer are in the unit for your convenience. All you need is food, beach towels and sunscreen!

The location of this condo couldn’t be in a better place! Go-Carts & Mini Golf across the street, a 10-minute drive away from the newly built Pier Park where you will find a unique shopping area, restaurants such as Margaritaville, Southern Theatre’s Grand Theatre which contains 16 movie screens, beautiful landscaped walking paths and home of many festivals and summer concerts.

Ocean Reef is also within a couple of miles of Wal-Mart SuperCenter, drug stores, golf courses, a marine park (Gulf World), a water park (Shipwreck Island), Fun Land, and more! Convenient to airport and less than 12-hour drive from most mid-western U.S. cities.

About Jayson and Patsy Cruse

We have been married for 18 years and have 1 daughter who is in her senior year of high school and 1 who is in the 8th grade. Jayson is an IT Manager and Patsy is a nurse who is currently focusing on taking care of the house and family and managing their real estate investments.

Jayson and Patsy Cruse purchased this condo in 2017

Why Jayson and Patsy Cruse chose Panama City Beach

Jayson's dad and stepmom retired and moved to Panama City Beach and we have loved coming to visit frequently over the last couple of years. The people are happy and kind and we've always felt at home here. So we bought an 8th floor unit in this building and fell in love with it. And now since it was time to expand our business we bought this one (again on the 8th floor) because we think it's the most perfect location in the building. It's far enough away from the beach that's it's peaceful on the balcony yet close enough to watch the kids on the beach and the view is perfect!

The beach is private so it's not as crowded and we love that security is always patrolling and making sure that the amenities are only being enjoyed by those staying at the condo.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this property because of the Gulf View from the balcony and the fact that we could be almost anywhere in the condo and still see the Emerald Beauty.

Loved our vacation here!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very comfortable and was remodeled very nicely. We had everything that we needed. The beach is absolute paradise. In the morning while drinking my coffee on the balcony, I saw dolphins, stingrays and all kinds of birds. The beach is also not as crowed as it is just a few condos down. You can sign up to para-sail right off the boardwalk on the beach. There are plenty of things to do and places to eat. If you are thinking about going to PCB you should stay here! Patsy and Jason were very attentive to our questions. Nothing but good things to say!

Location was perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay Memorial Week even though Tropical Storm Alberto came to visit us while we were there! We were able to enjoy the beach and the huge balcony every day!

The condo was in the perfect location. The kids enjoyed the arcade, miniature golf, and go karts across the street just as much as the beach and pools! The condo is tastefully decorated and the beds and linens are so comfortable. My favorite part of the condo is the amazing balcony and views. Patsy was so responsive to my questions and couldn't ask for a better host! We have already booked our next stay at this beautiful condo. Thanks again, Jayson and Patsy!

Owner's Response: Lucretia, I am so glad Alberto didn't interrupt your vacation and that you were still able to enjoy the condo and the surrounding businesses. We play miniature golf about every night when we are able to stay in the condo. Thank you for your kind words. My goal is to always exceed your expectations and I couldn't be happier that I had a part in making your stay special! See you next year!!

Wonderful Views From an Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway for my parents, aunt, and me! The days were sunny...the sunsets divine. The condo was loaded with all sorts of beach toys and supplies. The oversized balcony displayed incredible views. The inside of the condo was great and loaded with everything you might need. Please consider staying in this beautiful condo. The owners were kind and friendly, too!

I only wish we had more time to enjoy this beautiful condo. The condo was clean, and was equipped with all you need for your stay. The beds were so comfortable. It was also in the perfect location. I will definitely stay here again. The only suggestion I would make would be to add a full length mirror for those that sleep in the living room. Thank you for allowing us to rent your condo.

Expectations Surpassed!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, the attention to detail the owners have put into this condo is nothing short of amazing. I didn't realize it was possible to overpack when packing "carry on only" but I did! Everything I needed was there waiting for me, makeup remover packs, high end soap, shampoo and conditioner that I actually loved using! The kitchen came so well stocked I'm positive I could have hosted a dinner party there no problem. I also loved that the Keurig was stocked with 2 Kcups, and I had the option of the regular coffee pot which I prefer to use. The Patio was amazingly comfortable to sit on, I think morning cups of coffee wrapped in the cozy blankets provided staring at the ocean was my most cherished moments spent there.

The recommendation of Gypsy Crepes was a good one, and I loved walking to and from Runaway Island with my refillable for a discount cup. Seriously great location I have no complaints!

The bed and furniture were all incredibly comfortable. I enjoyed having the Netflix option on both televisions and decent wifi. The bath towels were the softest I have ever used and now need to purchase so that I can spoil myself a little bit at home. Thank you Jason and Patsy for such a relaxing stay!
