About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Looking for a tranquil, uncrowded vacation spot on the quiet end of the beach? Whether your idea of a vacation is watching the sunset from your own balcony, sitting by the pool, or lounging on the silvery white sand by the azure water, Mariner East 406 can fulfill your fantasy. From the living room, kitchen, or dining area, an uninterrupted view of the Gulf of Mexico is yours. There is always plenty of room since there are only 58 units in Mariner East, and these are among the widest and largest one bedroom units on Panama City Beach—no crowding at the pool, on the beach, or at the elevator. Being right on the beach, it is easy to run back up for something you might have forgotten or to grab a bite to eat. Should you decide to dine in, all of your food preparation items are provided. When you don’t want to cook, a myriad of good restaurants are close by, as are all kinds of entertainment venues; deep sea fishing, boat and jet ski rentals, parasailing, golf and amusement parks are just a few of the many possibilities. St. Andrews State Park is a couple of miles down Thomas Drive and the new Pier Park shopping and entertainment complex is only a short driving distance away. For those who prefer to fly, the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport is just a few miles north of Panama City Beach.

It will be easier to pack for your trip here since we provide hair dryers in each bathroom, four generous beach towels, four beach chairs, a beach umbrella, sand toys, and a small cooler.

Improvements in late 2016 include new custom bathroom vanity cabinets with quartz countertops and new faucets; kitchen cabinets were refurbished with new doors and drawers plus a new corner cabinet unit was added. A new stainless steel microwave was installed over the range allowing for more counterspace. A new stainless steel dishwasher was installed late summer, 2016. Custom room-darkening shutters were installed in the bedroom in late 2016. Improvements done in December, 2015 include under-counter lights and over-sink lighting in the kitchen that accents a new tile backsplash; new can lighting in both bathrooms; and a ceiling fan in the bedroom. Upgrades for 2013: master bath--a new 5-ft. tile shower with glass doors; second bath--a new tub with tile surround and glass doors; new couch and loveseat, new coffee table and end tables, tv bench, and flat-screen television. 2012 improvements: new plank-style tile throughout the unit, .

The kitchen has solid surface countertops with undermount sink, a smooth-top range, stainless steel microwave, stainless steel dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker. All typical small appliances are included.

The living room has a comfortable couch (sofa-bed), loveseat, and recliner from which you can watch the flatscreen television/DVD/blu-ray player or just enjoy that magnificent Gulf Coast view.

The generous dining table easily seats six and is surrounded by mirrored walls which reflect light and the beach view. The mirrors extend the entire length of the dining and living rooms.

The bedroom has two queen-sized beds, a large dresser, a flat-screen television and its own bathroom. A great convenience is the second full bath located off the hallway. Silky sheets and plenty of soft, thick towels make your stay more comfortable. We offer a wide variety of pillows (down alternative, medium, firm, and memory foam) to meet your preference.

A full-size washer and dryer are provided in your own laundry room with plenty of space to store any extra belongings.

The unit has its own wireless network allowing guests to access the internet from any room with no extra charge.

The front door is secured by a hospitality-grade electronic lock system that enables us to generate a different code for every guest, so your code is specific to you and the dates of your stay. No concerns that a previous guest might have access to your unit, and no worries about forgetting your key!

We invite you to vacation in Mariner East Unit 406, our comfortable beachfront retreat on one of the nicest sections of the Gulf Coast’s Panama City Beach, a beach that has often been described as the most beautiful in the world.

About The Owner

Before retiring we were (respectively) a high school teacher/counselor and the assistant director of a Big Ten university real estate department. We brought our own children to Panama City Beach for vacations for many years and now enjoy having our grandchildren visit as well.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Why The Owner chose Biltmore Beach

After staying at many condominium projects up and down Panama City Beach for over twenty years, we realized that Mariner East offered what we were looking for in a vacation spot: a small, quiet, family-oriented development with a large share of the beach in proportion to its population and a straight-on view of the beach from the living area. These units are some of the widest one-bedroom units on the beach, and with only six floors and 58 units, it is never crowded at the pool, on the beach, or the elevator.

What makes this condo unique

Mariner East is close to many activities, but because of its location on the quiet end of the beach, our guests are not subject to the crowds and noise of large developments housing thousands of people. There is a wide expanse of beach for Mariner East guests, and it is especially nice to be able to look off your balcony and easily locate friends or family members on the beach or at the pool.

Great little getaway condo.

  • 5 of 5

Condo is beautifully updated and it is so nice not to be in a massive building with tons of people. Lots of peace and tranquility to be found here. Love the large laundry room and that the owners provide a lot of items not typically found in condo rentals - such as beach gear. Also bed linens and towels are top quality. Will definitely stay again.
