Celebrate sunset every night at Sharky's (just across the street), or kick back and relax in front of the glowing fireplace 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 is unbelievable!

Be sure to go to the 15th floor observation deck for a knockout view of the sun melting softly into the Gulf of Mexico!

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 mall stores, specialty shops, and boutiques in Pier Park will keep you busy for days!

We fell in love with Mermaid's Mansion 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...or if you’re a late sleeper - no worries - we have room darkening draperies in all windows and both balcony doors!

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.

Turn on the FIREPLACE and Relax! Evenings in Mermaid's Mansion are special, with the twinkling light show viewed from both large windows as you watch TV by firelight!

This is not your ordinary two bedroom condo. There are only 2 others at Origin with this spacious floor plan. With only 7 condos on our floor, we are conveniently located just off the elevator! Super EZ loading and unloading!

FEEL FREE TO ENJOY YOUR MORNING COFFEE ON OUR BALCONY IN YOUR JAMMIES! YOU WILL FIND COMPLETE & TOTAL PRIVACY IN MERMAID'S LOUNGING CORNER!❤️

NO-NO's

- We love hosting responsible Spring Breaker but do not rent to students under 21 without parents or legal guardians present.

- No pets allowed. (Grandkids are allergic!)

- No smoking, vapor products, or e-cigarettes are allowed in our condo or on our balconies. Mermaid's Mansion is smoke-free.

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, Sharky's is right there, awaiting your order.

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

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!

P.S.

"I wasn't born at the beach, but I got there as fast as I could!"

Smiles,

About Sharon Lewin 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 Lewin Campbell purchased this condo in 2010

Why Sharon Lewin Campbell chose Panama City Beach

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

Where else will you enjoy watching a 50" TV, an amazing vista view, and a FIREPLACE. My husband designed and made the cabinet by with wood taken from our 100+ year old barn. We have a farm along the Ohio River in Kentucky!

My favorite part of Origin 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!

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!

If you need 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 AKA "Crabby's MERMAID"

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband Terry and I purchased our first condo at Origin in 2009. Our 609 was a studio efficiency, and perfect for just the two of us, but our family has grown and we were lucky enough to find the perfect 2 bedroom condo in 2017...MERMAID'S MANSION! The reviews that you see before August 2017 were for 609 - not 1505! Hope this clears up any confusion you may have when you read some of the past reviews.

Peace, Love, and Sandy Feet,

Terry & Sharon Campbell

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!
