Property description

Hi, I’m Kathy!

“Champagne Views” is the name of my beach condo at the fabulous Palazzo Resort. Haven’t heard of Palazzo? That’s OK. The resort is pretty new. We’re also the BEST!

I know, everyone on VRBO says that about their resort, but they’re…ummm…mistaken.

First off, the beach. This particular stretch, the 220 feet of beachfront that Palazzo sits atop, isn’t crammed with teens getting their drink on. No way. We’re on the quieter, more desirable west end where you see mostly couples and families.

Then there are the amenities. Every perk at Palazzo is elevated gulf front. Seriously, your car will have a better view than many of the people staying at other resorts (more on that later). Gulf front pool, gulf front jacuzzi, gulf front gym, gulf front sun deck, gulf front lobby, gulf front meeting room, gulf front parking. Anyway, you get the idea.

But the beach is the star…

The beach at Palazzo is, in a word, perfect. Sugary white sand leading to the clearest, most sparkly blue/green water imaginable. So step off the elevator and into the sand. Stretch out on a nice double chaise, directly on the beach, under the shade of a royal blue umbrella.

…and leave your wallet in the condo because I’ve taken care of VIP beach service.

That’s right, full beach service every day of your stay is included in the rate. If any of the other condos you are considering don’t offer this, add $150+ to the rate because you are going to want beachfront chairs and an umbrella.

So after you’ve relaxed on the beach (in swanky free chairs), worked up a sweat in the gym, soaked in the jaccazzi, and taken a dip in the pool—all while gazing at white sand and sparkly ocean—it’ll be time to get the flip flops on and head to Pier Park. It’s only 1 mile away, and it’s spectacular.

Pssst…you’ll need your wallet at Pier Park, for sure.

Now about the condo…

I named it Champagne Views for one reason. That stunning view. Although I will confess that I popped the top on a bottle of champagne...maybe two...when I bought the place so that may have contributed to the name.

Then I got to work. Painting, furnishing, decorating. It has a modern feel with dove gray walls and accent colors inspired by those awesome Gulf of Mexico sunsets. If you can tear your eyes from that gorgeous floor-to-ceiling view, you’ll find everything you need has been provided for your Panama City Beach vacation.

THE GREAT ROOM has two sleeper sofas (1 queen, 1 full). There’s a terrific new HDTV loaded with channels. And don’t overlook the high speed Internet connection or the awesome mini-stereo with both a CD and iPod player. Plus, the condo has 4 phones offering free local and US/Canada long distance during your stay.

THE BALCONY is enormous: 17 feet of gulf front beauty. Check out the two upholstered chaise lounges on one side, the loveseat seating group for 4 on the other, and that unstoppable view, front and center.

THE MASTER has a cushy 11” memory foam mattress, HDTV, a cozy reading nook, and connected master bath...crisply clean and zen in spirit.

THE BUNK BEDROOM: Yep, not just beds stuck on a wall in the hall, but an actual room...with a door, closets, phone, wall-mounted HDTV (again, the same cable package as the other rooms), and connected guest bath.

THE KITCHEN, where warm wood meets cool stainless and stone, is a stand-out. It comes completely stocked with everything you need. I stayed there MANY weekends while furnishing the place, so I know this to be a fact.

THE DINING AREA has a generous table with 4 comfy upholstered chairs PLUS another 4 people can belly up to the breakfast bar when its time to entertain.

THE LAUNDRY area’s located in the unit to make keeping everyone in clean clothes a breeze.

…now more about that great view for your car.

Palazzo, by Panama City Beach standards, is a low-density resort with only 129 units and 172 covered parking spaces under the building. That’s right. No need to park your car across the street and schleppe your luggage down a long walk-over. And with 3 hi-speed elevators, you won’t have to wait. That’s a common complaint at other resorts. Waiting 15+ minutes for an elevator to arrive. Never the case at Palazzo.

Here’s a quick recap of Palazzo’s amenities…
• Free VIP beach service
• Gulf front gym
• Gulf front pool and jacuzzi
• Gulf front lobby and lounge area
• Gulf front parking (172 covered spaces)
• Additional parking across the street (rarely needed)
• Three high speed elevators (wait time is rare)

I hope I’ve given you enough reasons to choose Champagne Views for your vacation. If not, call or write…I can come up with 346,843 more (notice that's the same as my VRBO listing number). Coincidence?

The balcony views and breezes can't be beat. 09/04/2014

VRBO Bear stayed here:


This was our first time in Panama City and we came here to celebrate our marriage anniversary. We stayed here for 5 nights and loved every bit of it. The condo was beautiful and we enjoyed our stay here. The time we spent on the beach was unsurpassed.

The condo was well stocked and Kathy took care of even the smallest details to make sure we were comfortable and well cared for. We were pleasantly surprised to see fresh flowers awaiting us when we arrived. She even called us up to make sure we were comfortable and didn't need anything extra.

We spent hours on the balcony, enjoying the breezes and the view. We spotted dolphins, stingrays and a shark during our stay and one thing that stands out of all is the amazing view from the balcony.

The listing pictures don't do this place justice. Kathy, you have a beautiful beach condo - thank you for sharing it with us.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $250

Notes:

As always, my rate includes all fees and taxes PLUS free in-unit WiFi and beach service. I think it’s a lot easier just to put EVERYTHING into a simple, flat rate up front. I do, however, require a separate, fully refundable $250 security/damage deposit that is either returned to you (if by check) or credited (if by credit card) within 7 days of your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My name is Kathy, and I'm a recent retiree who just moved back to their hometown of Knoxville, TN (GO VOLS!). I bought this place when I was still a workaholic (Nov/2010) in order to spend precious down time with family and friends. Now that I'm retired, I plan to make it my home away from home. FYI...not working is AWESOME!!!

Why the Owner Chose Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
I toured 50+ properties in my beach home search, and nothing even came close to the fantastic views and luxurious amenities offered by Palazzo Resort at Panama City Beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Gulf of Mexico puts on a spectacular show every evening for those of us lucky enough to be on the 17' uber-private balcony at Champagne Views at sunset. The interior decor was inspired by the colors of Panama City Beach sunsets.
