About Shelly Cagle

My husband, his parents and I purchased this condo pre-construction in 2007. We have made many FUN friends and family memories and love to share it with others!

Shelly Cagle purchased this condo in 2007

Why Shelly Cagle chose Panama City Beach

Grand Panama is very clean, safe and most of all nice and calm! It right next door to Edge-Water which is an older complex (80's) and not so crazy like some of the hotels.

However, when you drive back thru the complex to get to Middle Beach Rd then to Back Beach Rd you can get to Pier Park in 5 minutes depending on the time of day; its about 2-3 miles. A cab ride to or from Pier park is about $10-12.

What makes this condo unique

We love the open feeling that the windows provide are every room & are fabulous! Also, having 3 baths (one per bedroom) is wonderful...No-one has to share. The three baths make it easy for 2 families to share the condo rent expenses and not feel that they are on top of each other while trying to get ready for dinner.

Nice stay and convenient!

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed our stay at 808 Escape. It was plenty of room for my entire family. There were 3 kids under 9 yrs old and 5 adults. The views from all the windows were great! We really enjoyed the chairs and umbrella on the beach. The kids loved the pools. We were closed to many great restaurants and Pier Park. We had a great time.

"Escape 808" was just as described. It was clean, roomy and we had everything we needed. It was just like being at home. The beds were so comfortable!!! Love "Escape 808" and plan to stay there again in the future.

Grand Panama Beach Resort

  • 5 of 5

The VRBO listing # is correct but the property is not in Edgewater it is Grand Panama Beach Resort. The picture is also correct. Since I am a family member of the owner, my review would be biased since I LOVE Grand Panama. I just wanted to correct the name of the resort so future guests would not be confused. This unit in tower 2 #808 is an end unit on the east side. It is very spacious and the 3rd bathroom is great for a 3 bedroom unit with bunk area. The views are great with windows on the front, back and side. Though not beachfront, the balcony has a nice view of the beach. From the back you have a view of the tower 2 pool area and can also see the sunset and the beach. If you like sunrise, you can get that on the balcony or from the east side windows. I love this place and think you will too!

Owner's Response: The technical name of the "beach" where Grand Panama Beach Resort Is located is Edgewater Beach not the actual complex name. Glad you loved the condo; please call us again for your future vacations.

What a awesome condo !We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversity with our entire family at this great condo.

It was very clean and the view was excellent. The location to other facilities was located to many other attractions.

but the beach was our main area that we spent our time.The walkway over to tower one to gain access to the beach was great

We loved every detail in this unit. The ceiling fans, the water pressure, the light switches, everything. The owner was very easy to deal with and always answered my questions in reasonable time. The TV in the bunk area was best for the little ones. A note about WiFi throughout Grand Panama, speeds are good (over 10), but you get kicked off very often. This ended up being a blessing, as who needs the internet when you have the beach!
