About Kristy Edwards

I have been coming to the Florida Gulf Coast for 20 years and after searching the entire beach front over the entire State of Florida, I fell in love with Panama City Beach and the Shores of Panama. The Shores offers all the amenities of a big resort but is still directly on the beach! There is something to do for everyone and everything is close by. Pier Park is just a few miles away and offers a variety of shopping, dining, movie theater, bars a small amusement park, and a Dave & Busters.

Kristy Edwards purchased this condo in 2009

Why Kristy Edwards chose Panama City Beach Area

The Shores of Panama is the best Resort located directly on the beach in all of Florida!

What makes this condo unique

The most unique benefit of staying at the Shores of Panama compared to any other condo building on the beach is that it offers 'Resort Like' amenities and is still located directly on the beach. Besides having one of the largest outdoor pools in all of Florida, there is entertainment on a pool side stage, movies for kids on the beach, and a full service spa on site. The Shores has parking directly next to the building so your walk is short to the front door of the condo. World famous Pineapple Willy's is right next door which has a Blues Bar and a Sports Bar.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Panama city for the last few years (stayed mostly at the Boardwalk, which is great) but this condo has moved to number one on our list. The current owner Kristy is great and one of the nicest owners I have ever dealt with. She cares about her tenants and makes sure everything is as advertised. This was the cleanest condo we have stayed in, which is very important to us. The condo is well stocked and the location is great. The Shores of Panama is a huge resort but the private parking spots (2) for this condo is as good as you can get. I hope we can get back next year and I can't imagine anyone not loving this place.

First of all, I just want to say how AWESOME Greg & Nicholle are!! So very cordial, understanding & just plain nice to talk too & deal with! The unit is absolutely beautiful! It was decorated just the way I would decorate if I owned it. You have great taste Nicholle & Greg :-) I really enjoyed having my morning coffee on the wrap around balcony every morning. We also loved facing the poolside as well because the grandchildren & us adults loved listening to the poolside music. Also the fact that the stairway was right next to the unit made it extremely easy for all of us going up & down to the tiki bar & pool. I would 100% highly recommend this unit!(if we don't get it first!!) All I can say is...I just want to go back!!! :-)

Great location and view!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is very well maintained and contains beautiful furnishings. Great view from the oceanfront wraparound deck of the ocean, pool area, and Pineapple Willy's. Right out your front door, you can take the stairs up and down 5 short flights to avoid the impossible to catch elevators. We only had one car for our family, and didn't even notice that there are 2 reserved parking spaces for this unit until the last day!

The condo is fully stocked with every utensil you could ask for, and the carpet seems new as well. We would not hesitate to stay here again!

A Beautiful Condo with Both Beautiful Ocean Front and Pool Views!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed for 1 week at this Condo. I have two kids ages 7 and 9. We all felt so comfortable here and were able to spread out and not feel cramped. The condo owners take pride in keeping this condo updated and fresh looking with new appliances and furniture. We felt right at home. We also love the resort feel of this condo with its lagoon style pool, although we drove 1000 miles for the ocean and beach and spent most of our time there! We enjoyed Pineapple Willy's food and bands and it is a walk away. There are so many restaurants to choose from and Walmart is right across the street. There is also an abundance of shopping you can do and take home a piece of Panama City Beach. I am a runner and enjoyed running down the strip each morning to explore the area and see the palm trees. Panama City Beach is a lovely and relaxing place to vacation, and a bonus was that the weather was perfect, sunny and 82-85 every day! We plan to return on a yearly basis and would definitely rent from this condo owner again!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Great stay. We stayed at this time last year too. Greg is easy to work with and very helpful. The unit is in an excellent location, great furnishings and the balcony is to die for. The parking right by the door is pretty nice too.

Great unit. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Such a beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo from 3/10/12-3/17/12 and had a wonderful time! The view was breathtaking. There is nothing better than hearing the gentle roar of the ocean and watching the sunset. Blissful is a good word to describe it. The condo really had everything you could imagine. Pots/pans, baking dishes, a dutch oven, a crockpot and most every utensil you would use. The only utensil that I think could be added would be tongs if you wanted to cook bacon or perhaps sausage. If you decide to rent the condo (and I highly recommend it), I would like to suggest you buy a bag of ice to keep in the freezer. The freezer does have an ice maker, but it couldn't keep up with our usage. The pool is lovely and the poolbar was very nice as well. When I ran into a minor issue, I went to the front desk and they were able to contact Greg for me with a smile on the clerk's face. In fact, all of the staff that we chatted with were very amiable and seemed to really enjoy being there. I would not recommend anyone with small children to stay here during Spring Break. There were thousands of college students there and while the majority were very respectful, I would keep the small kids well away during this time.

For those of you who like raw oysters, there is a place about 1/4 mile away in a small strip mall called Dee's Hideaway. Great prices and GREAT food. They make homemade hush puppies with a cajun roumalade that was outstanding, and also make a She-Crab soup that was to die for!

Wal-mart is across the street so it's very convenient for shopping. I suggest you drive there though if you're stocking up for the week. The parking garge is a cruise from the condo, but the parking spot is premium!

Having said all this, I would definitely recommend the condo to friends and family. Thank you so much Greg and Nicole for the opportunity to stay.
