About Jill Dunnivant

Jill and Sharon grew up in Franklin, Pennsylvania, and have been friends since they were 6 years old (a very long time!). They moved here to Panama City Beach to get away from cold winters and to enjoy the beautiful gulf beaches.

Jill Dunnivant purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jill Dunnivant chose Panama City Beach

We invested in Emerald Beach Resort because we like the location and we think it's a great resort. We personally decorated our condo and have managed it since the spring of 2007.

What makes this condo unique

Not only is the resort right on the beach with a gorgeous view, pools, hot tubs, exercise room, game room, Starbucks, Tiki Bar, etc., but everything you need is close by. You can even walk to restaurants, shopping, and several activities such as mini-golf, an arcade, and go-carts. One of the biggest benefits of our condo location is that Pier Park, the most popular place to eat, shop, or see a movie, is less than a mile away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for such an awesome vacation! The condo was great and more than we could have asked for. You will hear from us again, and we will recommend your condo to friends and family.

Great Condo!

Great place to stay! Highly recommend it. Beautiful view and the beach chairs were a great additional feature. Jill, one of the owners, went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect! Thanks Jill! Can't wait to go back!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This property was very clean and had a beautiful view! It fit us perfectly for our weekend getaway. I would have given 5 stars, but we ran out of toilet paper (there was only what was on the roll) and there weren’t any trash bags except for the bag that was in the trash can. The dish soap was nearly empty and the tub didn’t drain properly. We actually had to snake it so we weren’t showering in water that was up to our ankles. Besides those minor things, we really enjoyed ourselves. We would recommend this place to others.

Owner's Response: Kayla, We're glad you found the unit clean and enjoyed your stay. We value your input. We strive to provide our guests with everything they need, but we can't fix things we don't know about. If we had been made aware of the tub drain problem, or shortage of supplies, while you were there, we certainly would have taken care of those things. The tub drain was cleared after you told us about it upon your departure. And we'll speak to the cleaning staff about leaving the amount of supplies outlined in your arrival letter. Sincerely, #829 Owners

Very well taken care of. Ocean view is perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience. Figuring out which floors we needed to get to and which escalators and elevators was confusing at first, but that's not an issue. We absolutely loved the condo and the location.

Condo was very clean and accurately represented as shown online.

  • 5 of 5

This unit was everything it was supposed to be and more! It was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you’d need. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Shower head was really high to accommodate my super tall son and the water heat and pressure was great. We didn’t get to do and see everything we wanted to in this trip so we will definitely be back and will try to book this unit when we do!

Our condo is directly on the Gulf of Mexico in Panama City Beach on the Florida panhandle. The resort is centrally located within driving distance from most of the central/eastern United States. Our beach is known for its beautiful white sand and emerald green waters, but there are many things to do besides relaxing on the World's Most Beautiful Beaches. There is an abundance of water sports and other activities for all ages, along with shopping, dining, and nightclubs. Take a dolphin watching cruise to Shell Island, Parasail, jet ski, or Paddle Board right at the condo. You can also walk to Hidden Lagoon Super Race Track and Mini-Golf (2 18-hold courses) and Funland Arcade and Snack Bar.

A short drive away, you can enjoy one of the local championship golf courses or take the family to Rock'It Lanes for bowling, roller skating, and an arcade. There's also a new 30,000 sq ft Just Jump Trampoline Park only 3 miles away. In addition to the large jump area, there is basketball, dodgeball, and a separate kiddie area for age 6 and under.

There are many local festivals including Oktoberfest and the Music and Wine Festival. For music lovers, there are free summer concerts in the parks, including Pier Park less than a mile away, and local musicians play at many of the beach restaurants and night clubs. Also, an awesome restaurant located directly on the beach, Runaway Island, is a very short walk from our condo. They are known for their great fish tacos, and usually have live music on the deck in the evenings.

Activities: Wonder Works, Shipwreck Island Water Park, Zoo World, Gulf World Marine Park, Ripley's Believe It or Not, Wineries, Bowling, Go-Karts, Bungee Rides, Air Boats
