Celebrate sunset every night at Sharkeys (just across the street), or kick back and relax on the 15th floor observation deck and watch the NIGHT PUT ON A SPARKLE SHOW FOR FREE! For you young people, that is a line from the Drifter's hit, 'Up on the Roof', and I think of the song every time I enjoy the night view!!!

The sunset ocean view to the west is unbelievable!

After sunset (Can't miss sunset!) take a walk to Pier Park and enjoy the music and festivities going on. Oh, did I mention SHOPPING! Bargain hunting at all the stores and boutiques in Pier Park will keep you busy for days!

We fell in love with this condo the moment we saw the amazing vista views of West Bay and the Gulf of Mexico shoreline to the East from the living room and balcony. You will be WOWED by Sunrise every morning.

Keep your camera ready, because one sunrise is more beautiful than the next. Bring your binoculars to Mermaids Mansion in the Sky too!

Our Pictures say it all. You will be impressed with the layout of this particular unit, and the panoramic views from the balcony. This is not your ordinary two bedroom condo, as you can see from the photos. There are only 3 condos with this design!

ALL ORIGIN STUDIO EFFICIENCY UNITS ARE BEAUTIFUL, BUT UNITS LOCATED ON OUR 'STACK' ARE UNDENIABLY SUPERIOR, WITH MORE SQUARE FOOTAGE, AND GREATER THAN A 180 DEGREE VIEW FROM THE BALCONY!

FEEL FREE TO ENJOY YOUR MORNING COFFEE ON OUR BALCONY IN YOUR JAMMIES!

BEACH ACCESS:

Take the speedy elevator to the first floor lobby, cross at the crosswalk (CARS WILL STOP FOR YOU!), and enter the PRIVATE 'TOWNE OF SEAHAVEN' BEACH ACCESS.

Leave your flip flops on the boardwalk, by the bench/shower, then SQUISH your toes in the WORLD FAMOUS SUGAR WHITE SAND of Panama City Beach. Set up your beach chairs at the waters edge, and RELAX in the land of AHHHHH's!

If you get hungry, Sharkey's is right there, awaiting your order.

Nothing like an ice cold drink on a smokin' hot sunny Florida day!

There is a photo on the website showing how very close to the beach you will be. Your proximity to the ocean may be shorter than in some of the larger beachfront complexes!

Owner's note: WE never thought we would be happy staying ANYWHERE that was not at the water's edge on the beach. That was before we experienced ORIGIN! Before purchasing, we explored many resorts along the beach, but nothing compared with the amenities (We got spoiled!) that Origin has to offer, at a fraction of the cost of the others.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SACRIFICE QUALITY FOR AN AFFORDABLE VACATION! ORIGIN OFFERS LUXURY!

As you lounge at the Grand Pool Terrace soaking up the rays, you will have the sensation of being pampered like ROYALTY! YOU DESERVE THIS!

THANK YOU FOR YOU INQUIRY!

I WOULD LOVE TO HOST YOUR NEXT VACATION ON PANAMA CITY BEACH. Need a larger condo, I can help you with that too!

SUNSHINE,

SHARON CAMPBELL

About Sharon Campbell

We honeymooned in Maui in 2007 after a 2 year courtship! I was widowed and had sadly sold my little beach condo at Sunbird in 2002. (My family fell in love with Panama City Beach since we arrived here in a pop-up camper in 1985!) After selling my Sunbird, I was so bummed - then daughter Kerry said she would buy another condo with me - and we purchased Calypso - perfect for a large family. We LOVE it! Then when I met Terry and got married again, we wanted a special place for the two of us...and we found that perfect spot at Origin.

A NEW BEGINNING....

Sharon Campbell purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sharon Campbell chose Florida North West

My husband and I are very excited to be a part of the 'Towne of Seahaven'. A few years ago, during a beachwalk from Calypso, we stopped in the Seahaven Welcome Center. We were touched by the Bennett family's dedication to a dream they had since 1924! We liked the idea of being able to leave the car behind and walk to everything. We fell in love with the spacious design, and the romantic view from the oversized balcony - facing SUNRISE!

What makes this condo unique

My favorite is the 4th floor Grand Pool Terrace and the HOT TUB.

After a long walk on the beach there is nothing better than a relaxing soak in the foaming hot tub with the million dollar ocean view in front of me. LIFE IS GOOD! The beach access is EASY. Take a speedy elevator to lobby level, go outside to the crosswalk, cars stop, you cross to 'WELCOME TO SEAHAVEN' private beach access and the ocean is yours! It is great getting carryouts from Sharkeys and watching sunset from our private balcony! If you need more information or suggestions on what to see and do during your vacation at Panama City Beach, just browse through the WELCOME TO THE BEACH book I have in the condo, or check out the many brochures and discount coupon booklets in the lobby.

Love and blessings to all,

Sharon Campbell

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sharon and Terry,

Hate to say, we are leaving today:( It has been a very relaxing and refreshing vacation. It has been at least 6 years since we have been on vacation. Room 609 - EXCELLENT! We are from Indiana, and live in a beautiful valley, beautiful except only one thing you don't see - SUNSETS! I will miss that. Thanks for sharing yours for awhile. I have truly enjoyed everything.

Owner's Response: We stayed in our condo 609 during the Origin auction, and guess what? Terry and I bought Origin 608 - one bedroom condo with a pool/ocean view - right across the hall from our 609! It couldn't be more perfect! Vrbo sent me a review request after our stay...and I happily complied!
