Shores of Panama Gulf-Front : Spectacular View--April Specials

Bedrooms 1
Space 968 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Spectacular! This is the best way to describe the dazzling view from this 9th floor condo located at the Shores of Panama, one of the newest resorts on Panama City Beach. The unit is an end unit located on the southern side of the resort and boasts an unobstructed water view, and you can see both the sun rise each morning and the sun set each evening from your spacious balcony which directly overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. You are high enough to avoid the bustling noise of crowds on the beach but not so high that you can't hear the soothing murmur of the surf at night. Call for special military pricing. Note that when comparing our average price to that of other condos at the Shores, our pricing includes a reserved parking space on the same floor as the condo, cleaning, and the Resort amenity fee.

Most of March and all of April 2018 is open--Book now!

Why Larry Kaden chose Panama City Beach

We wanted a beautiful beach location on the Emerald Coast. We love to sit on the balcony and look at the beautiful scenery while listening to the waves crash ashore at all hours of the day and night. Moonlight views are especially breathtaking.

Spectacular doesn't even begin....

  • 5 of 5

Four ladies drove down from Canada for the month of February 2017.

This end middle unit was over the top wonderful.

Sunrise and sunset views of the emerald gulf coast were fantastic.

Owners were immediate with any questions before and during our stay.

Condo was very clean, well equipped with fresh towels and bedding.

Washer and dryer came in handy for our long stay.

Plenty to see and do in the area and we enjoyed the State Park.

We enjoyed the large outside hot tub and the beautiful sandy beach with Pineapple Willies right next door.

Hope I can talk my friends into returning next year.

Thanks again....Larry, Terry and Erik

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay and want to return next year. We try very hard to please our guests and the weather certainly cooperated during your stay. We are very enthusiastic about the future of Shores of Panama now that our Homeowner's Association has assumed control of all the amenities. The aggravating fees have been eliminated and the future is bright! Thanks again!

Loved every minute!

The property was very nice, neat & clean. Just minutes from most any place you would like to go. We had a beautiful sunset wedding at St Andrews Park which was very convenient. I had all my family and friends go thru VRBO for there reservations to stay at The Shores of Panama everyone was well pleased, we will be back. The property is beautiful and very accommodating. We loved listening to the waves come crashing in while having our morning coffee & breakfast on the balcony and watching the dolphins play. Loved it!!!

Great room and view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay! We loved the room and the view but the elevators were not that great! A long line every time we needed to go to the beach. It was great being able to park right outside of the room in the parking deck. Beautiful pool area! Larry was great working with!!

Owner's Response: We're glad that you had a great time and enjoyed the view. It really is better from an end unit like ours than from one of the interior units. Reviews such as yours help us when a prospective guest is looking at all the VRBO possibilities at the Shores and each listing claims to have the premier view of the beautiful emerald green Gulf. I apologize for the elevator delays but there's not much we can do about it since the resort is always crowded in June and July. However,there are three additional elevator banks on the eastern end of the Resort which most people don't realize can be used. Thank you for your kind words, and we hope you can return for many more visits.

Beautiful Condo on a Beautiful Beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful, clean, stocked, and conveniently located to shops and restaurants. The owner was so willing to help us through the whole experience. The resort and beach were wonderful as well. I would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jen. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you return for many more vacations. We try very hard to offer a pleasant experience at a reasonable price, and it is difficult when competing with so many other condos at the same resort. And each owner advertises his or her condo as the best one! It is gratifying to know that we are succeeding! Thanks again.
