Property description

A couple's retreat, romantic moonlit nights, evening cocktail watching the beautiful sunsets, and days in the warm emerald waters of the gulf can all be yours here. Designed with the classy meticulous couple in mind. The West Indies decor, done in earthy browns, indigo blue and Merlot with a beach accent, was inspired by the romance of Key West and created by a designer. The upscale furnishing have been selected to complement not coordinate or match for a truly Caribbean atmosphere. From the elegant master suite with its quality mattress, bamboo floor & 32" LCD TV to the spacious great room with its 47" flat screen TV, every attention has been paid to even the smallest detail.

Kitchen is well stocked with amenities to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. This exceptional clean unit is service by a conscientious family member. I am very strict about the cleaning of this unit and have taken great pains to control it's care.
Spend the day relaxing on the beach on your own rental beach chairs and umbrella (included - a $240.00 value - March - October only!), with a refreshing beverage from the Tiki bar.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: As a dedicated designer, while spending winters here in my condo I am always going the extra mile making changes sparked by my artistic imagination. My inspiration - Hemingway! Summers are spent in my coastal Maine home. I have the best of both worlds.

Why the Owner Chose Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
Emerald Beach's located in Open Sands is the heart of the beach. Beautiful white sands, romantic sunsets and amenities of the resort are outstanding. Located just right on Front Beach Road. Pier Park, restaurants, golf course, attractions are all near-by.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This unique mystified decor creates a mood of being transported into a fantasy of being in an exotic area of the Keys or a Caribbean Island. Watching the evening sunset, through the wall of glass doors in the oversize great room, across the crystal clear aqua water of the gulf is mesmerizing, transforming one into a peaceful calm state of mind. The most important benefit of renting my condo is the importance that is placed on the cleaning & up keep. A family member is the person responsible for the cleaning & inventory inspection and is exclusive to this condo only. I DO NOT use a cleaning service. They do not meet my standards. I know that this condo WILL be kept up to my high standards. If an item is broken or damaged it will be repaired or replace. You will NOT be disappointed in your stay.
