Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

What a beautiful beachfront paradise! Enjoy our condo in one of the most luxurious buildings in Panama City Beach. Located on the 14th floor of the Palazzo, it has spectacular views of white sandy beaches and crystal clear emerald waters. Looking out onto the turquoise waters either through floor-to-ceiling windows or from the oversized balcony makes you feel as if you were alone on a ship in the middle of the ocean.

THE RESORT

Palazzo Resort is a new condominium building on the west side of Panama City Beach in North West Florida. It is situated on the gorgeous Gulf Resort Beach, to the west. Since this area only has a few hotels and condo buildings, the beaches here are far less crowded than those beaches to the east, which means far enough from all the hustle and bustle yet conveniently located to all the great amenities.

Palazzo Resort is also one of the smaller apartment buildings with only 129 condos on 17 floors (compare to the typical, larger high rise condos in Panama City Beach) making it more calm, quiet and private. This pristine and refined facility features a well-equipped fitness center with ocean view and meeting/event /game room, an exquisite elevated pool (seasonally heated), an oversized hot tub and sun deck area overlooking the beach. Gas grills and picnic area are available for guests on remarkably landscaped grounds. Beach access via wooden deck with outdoor showers and a lovely tiled decorative water feature as well as beach chair and umbrella rental.The elegant ocean front lobby located above the parking level on the 5th floor has plenty of seating and Wi-Fi. The wonderful concierge is very helpful and knowledgeable. 24-hour security, gated covered parking exists on the first four floors, each with direct access to three high speed elevators. Extra parking for overflow or guests located across the street.

OUR CONDO

Our immaculate condo has an open, spacious and airy floor plan of 1,345 square feet with two bedrooms and a bunk bed area. Newly renovated, with spanish ceramic wood tiles all over.

The master bedroom and living room have ocean view and direct balcony access through floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall sliding glass doors. The upgraded, more than fully equipped kitchen has granite counter tops and also breathtaking ocean views as does the breakfast bar and dining area with expandable dining table for up to eight.All rooms are professionally decorated in a sophisticated, comfortable and inviting manner. They include contemporary upscale furnishings with a coastal twist. They also feature state of the art electronics including three LCD HDTVs, IPOD cradle, DVDs, Broadband and Wi-Fi internet connection as well as radio alarm clocks in bedrooms.

Sleeping accommodations for up to six persons consist of a king size bed in master bedroom, a queen size bed in the guestroom and two single beds in separate bunk bed area. The master bathroom includes a large jetted tub with ocean view when the door to master bed room is open as well as a walk-in-shower, two separate sinks and an enclosed toilet. Guest bath features a bath tub.

The most delightful spot in our condo is without doubt the extra-large large balcony with stunning beach and ocean views and dining furniture for six persons including two reclining lounge chairs.

EXTRA AMENITIES

For your convenience, local and unlimited long distance phone calls in the US as well as internet connection are free of charge. We also provide for you four portable beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels as well as cleaning supplies such as dish detergent and dish washer liquid. A small supply of shampoo and soap and a hairdryer is available.

ACTIVITIES

The selection of activities is quite impressive: entertainment, restaurants, shops, sport activities etc. The brand-new airport is only 10 miles away, a $25 cab ride. Within walking distance (either on the street or along the beach) you can find the beautiful new "Pier Park", a delightful, pedestrian-friendly area with lots of outdoor shopping including department stores such as Dillard’s and Target, shops such Old Navy, Marshalls etc. Dining includes amongst many others one of the only three Munchner Hofbrauhaus in the USA and Jimmy Buffet’s Margaretville. And not to forget Starbucks Coffee and Panera Bread. There is a large (16) movie theater, an amusement park with rides and even a little train rolling through the village of “Pier Park”.

Across the Palazzo, you’ll find a large, well-stocked “Winn Dixie” grocery store and a “CVS” drug store for your convenience in case you don’t have a car. Also, an inexpensive trolley service makes it easy to ride up and down along the beach to visit other Panama City Beach areas. Scooter and golf car rentals also available across the street.

The activities in Panama City Beach include dolphin watching, fishing, Jet Ski, parasailing, go-carts, biking, tennis, golfing, miniature golf and many more. Palazzo is also close to the Frank Brown Sports Complex, a great outdoor recreation facility offering playgrounds, picnic areas, saltwater fishing pier etc. and hosting many special events and tournaments throughout the year.

Destin is only 35 miles away with much more shopping and a large outlet mall.

Whether relaxing in the privacy of your own balcony gazing onto the ocean, watching the captivating sunsets or sunbathing on the beach you’ll stay entertained with all the first-class amenities Palazzo has to offer. So, it looks like your dream vacation is only a “click” away, and soon you’ll enjoy your amazing vacation here in our delightful condo on the spectacular emerald beach. See you soon!

About Christine & Sean Derda

Since we both work for an airline flying around the globe, we were looking for a beach vacation home that we could reach by car, if we do not want to fly. Panama City Beach was close enough and we were amazed by the beauty of the Emerald Coast. The best thing though is, if we do fly, we do not need a car there at all. Everything is so close and convenient. The airport is only a 10-minute ride, and a $25 cab fare. A large grocery and drug store are across from our building, and Pier Park is only a beautiful 25-minutes walk away along the beach. We have seen many beaches around the world but the Florida Emerald Coast definitely has some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world, white sugar sand and turquoise waters as far as one can see. We can't get enough of it. We love it! It's time to share it with you!

Christine & Sean Derda purchased this condo in 2010

What makes this condo unique

We are so happy at Palazzo. We chose this condo resort because it is smaller than all the other huge buildings at the beach away from all the hustle and bustle of the mega resorts. It is very well built and luxurious, it gives a feeling of a real upscale resort, more peaceful, private and intimate. Yet, all the amenties, shopping and restaurants are so close by. Perfect!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Christine,

Just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was to stay in your lovely condo! We visit the ocean many times each year, but it has been many years since we have stayed at a place that we want to re-visit. Yours is the one. Your extra effort of amenities such as conveniently placed hooks, additional floor rugs in the bathrooms, real towels, boxes of tissues , Krupp's coffeemaker, and so on, made us feel as welcomed houseguests. The tasteful nautical décor is just perfect and upscale for the beach, and the place was squeaky clean.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Dawn, and found her to be professional, prompt , and courteous. I appreciate your choice of managers! I called Richard first but didn't hear back from him. I appreciate having the choice of two people to contact.



I must say , though, it was speaking with you that gave me the "go-ahead" to stay at Palazzo. You are a delight, and I look forward to the next time we stay at your place.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to celebrate our 39th anniversary in such a beautiful place as yours. Even the weather cooperated in the way that only autumn at the Gulf can!

Gratefully yours, Donna

An awesome stay and a great host.

  • 5 of 5

I normally add reviews if something is exceptionally good or exceptionally bad. I am glad this time it is exceptionally good.

The location, amenities and the hospitality of the host all deserves five stars rating.

If I have to plan a trip to Panama City beach again I will always give my first preference to this condo while planning my trip.

Awesome stay.

Thanks a lot Christine for everything.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to PCB and had a great time. The view was gorgeous and the condo was very comfortable. There were 5 of us and plenty of room for everyone. Very clean. The care package was excellent and very informative. Having beach chairs, towels, umbrella, and toys were great and very helpful. We stayed during the week of July 4th and the views of the fireworks were wonderful. Conveniently close to restaurants, grocery store, and shopping malls. This place is great! Our family had a great time.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Sean and Christine's condo was exceptional. The condo was beautifully decorated and very neat and clean. This exceeded our expectations. From the packet we got before our trip, to the fact that they provided beach chairs, beach towels, and beach toys for the kiddos. The balcony was great for beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I can't say enough great things about the condo and the promptness of Sean and Christine.

Absolutely as described!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spend a week in PCB once a year. We've stayed a ton of places, but Christine & Sean's condo has by far been our favorite!!! Everything was exactly like they said it was. Christine sent the sweetest care pkg with all necessary info to get into the property. The condo was extremely well supplied. Small touches not go un noticed. Even the twine on the paper towels and toilet paper! Super clean! We loved being on the West end of PCB, so much quieter, and family oriented! Winn Dixie across the street kept us from having to fight traffic to go to Walmart. We spent so many mornings on the balcony watching stingrays swim with 10-15 ft of the shoreline.

We will DEFINITELY be going back to Sean & Christines beautiful condo!

From the moment I contacted Christine back in December of 2016 it has been an excitement to begin my trip. When we arrived and entered our Condo we were blown away. This place exceed our exceptation in every way. It was clean, and very well decorated. The balcony area was my favorite place...the furniture was amazing. We had everything that we need. Christine & Sean thank you so much for the attention you give to make sure your guest have the very best experience possible at your condo. We will return in October. My favorite place I've ever stayed!!!
