About the property

1 Queen Bedroom, 1 Bath w/ shower, Living Room w/ Queen Sleeper Sofa

Sunshine Shores Condominiums is a 32-unit facility, each being individually owned. All units open to the outside. Long-term renters or owners occupy some units. #18 is rented short-term throughout the spring, summer and fall. It is available for the months of November through March for winter renters. The condo complex is located on the beach side of Thomas Drive, about one mile from the entrance to St. Andrews State Park. We are within walking distance of Schooner's, the 'last beach club on the beach.' Unit #18 is located on the second floor, and is NOT handicapped accessible.

The unit has one bedroom with a queen-sized bed. The combination living room/kitchen has a queen-sized sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom has a shower stall only; no bathtub. Although Sunshine Shores is not located right on the beach (there is row of beach house between us and the beach), it takes less than a minute to be walking on the sand. The public boardwalk (#7) is just steps from the condo. The beach is rarely crowded as there are no condo highrises nearby.

An olympic-size pool is available for use. It is NOT handicapped accessible. There is no life guard on duty at any time, and all children MUST be accompanied by an adult. There is a community laundry room on-site equipped with two commercial coin-operated washers and dryers.

Renters are responsible for providing your own linens (sheets, towels, etc.) and for cleaning the unit upon departure. Cleaning tools and supplies are stocked in the condo. This is a SMOKE-FREE, ANIMAL-FREE unit. No exceptions. MUST BE 25+ YEARS OLD TO RENT. Children are to be monitored at all times.

WANTED!! WINTER RENTERS for November, 2016, through February, 2017. This comfortable, one-bedroom condo is available from November through February. Please contact owner at 256-453-3826 immediately for information. A signed rental agreement is required, along with a security deposit. The monthly rate during these months is $700.00 per month. Deposit amount is determined by the number of months reserved. It is available for one month or up to four.

About Susan Prickett Barrs

This condo was purchased by my parents in 1980. Our family has enjoyed many wonderful days vacationing here. My parents are now deceased, and my husband and I are blessed to have inherited it. We take great pride in our 'home away from home' and provide a beautifully decorated, fully equipped, clean location for your vacation enjoyment.

Why Susan Prickett Barrs chose Panama City Beach Area

The great thing about our condo located at Sunshine Shores is that there are no high rise facilities close by, so our beach area is rarely crowded. You do not have to step over people to get to the water. There are people who live here year-round, so we maintain a quiet location for you to enjoy.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Susan is a pleasure to deal with. We've stayed at Sunshine Shore twice previously in a condo of someone we personally know who no longer does rentals. We enjoyed the atmosphere of SS so I googled under VRBO and found this gem! The complex is smaller therefore not the hustle and bustle of a high rise, more family-like. Condo is neat and clean. Kitchen has plenty of essentials to cook if you desire. Susan leaves notes as how to operate tv, cable ect. that's very helpful. Very close to all the touristy things to occupy your time if you choose. We'll be back. 😃

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. Condo was absolutely cute and very clean. The location was great. It was very peaceful. My kids had a great time and even the teenager loved it. Susan was extremely nice and made the whole process simple and enjoyable. We would definitely stay again. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us. :)

Wonderful Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time! The condo is cute as it can be and so clean and well appointed. We love the location since there are no high rises too close and the section of the beach is truly peaceful and relaxing. Can't wait to go back next year!

Great little condo!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our short stay very much. I liked that the owner, Susan, responds very quickly to questions. Even though she is not on site, the wonderful neighbors and her fast responses make up for it. We did not have any problems at all. You use a code to get in the condo, so no worrying about keeping up with the key. There are 2 beach access points VERY close which was great. It is only a block away from Schooners, but if that is packed, and it probably is, then try out Scampy's just around the corner. The room was very clean and smelled great. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thanks Susan!
