Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
From the vantage point of your expansive balcony on this east END unit... sipping your cup of coffee or glass of wine... you have a front row seat to breathtaking sunrises and dazzling sunsets over the emerald waters of the Gulf. Watch the dolphins play along the coast while you enjoy the largest balcony on the beach (280 sq ft!), which has been furnished to provide an additional living area for your family. When you're ready to hit the beach, you have a FREE beach service - two chairs and an umbrella that are set up each morning for you (March 15 - October 31).
Located on the prestigious west end of Panama City Beach, this well appointed 4 bedroom, 3 bath condo features upscale furnishings with all the comforts of home, including FREE wi-fi service.
The family room is comfortably furnished with a high end leather sofa and matching love seat, and for your entertainment you'll find a 42' plasma TV and DVD player. Just this past year the carpeting in the main living area was replaced with laminate flooring that looks like weathered wood you'd find on a boardwalk.... very cool looking and much easier to maintain and keep the sand where it belongs - on the beach!
The kitchen features upgraded stainless appliances, granite counter tops and everything you'll need for your vacation menus. Although you'll find ample seating for your family in the dining room, don't forget the balcony. It's the best seating in the house (and better than most restaurants)!
All of the bedrooms feature LCD TVs with built in DVD players. The master bedroom is Gulf front with its own access to the balcony. Sneak out late at night or early in the morning to capture your unique quiet moment with the sea. For your comfort and convenience you have a King size bed and your own private bath. The second master has a King size bed with its own private bath, as well.
In the third bedroom, which offers an expansive view of the city and Back Bay, you have a queen size bed and shared bath. The fourth bedroom also has a queen size bed, the same breathtaking view and shares a bath with the third bedroom.
Ocean Reef has many amenities to enhance your vacation experience. You'll find the first one the moment you arrive... an assigned parking place in the building's garage that will be yours throughout your stay! While you are our guests, you can exercise in our Gulf front fitness center or swim in one of our two pools.. indoor or outdoor... you choose! When you just want to relax, try the sauna or steam room... or just kick back in the Gulf front hot tub. So many decisions for how to have fun!
You still have more decisions to make, though, when you head out to experience Panama City Beach. Although you have 330 feet of your own white sandy beach, check out Shell Island for a change. It is a natural, undeveloped island which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrews Bay. It is home to one of the world's highest concentrations of bottle-nosed dolphins, and the island's pristine beauty and abundant wildlife make it an enjoyable and exciting way to spend the day. Even the short shuttle boat ride over is part of the adventure!
In addition to all of the fun and exciting beach activities you would expect to find, you are also conveniently located to Pier Park, a new open air complex right on Front Beach Road. With it's open air layout and endless shopping and restaurant opportunities, you will find something for everyone in your family. It is home to familiar retailers, but also offers many small local shops with unique gifts and treasures for all. Restaurants like Margaritaville, Guy Harvey's Island Grill, Dick's Last Resort, and many more are sure to please everyone's tastes. The complex features walking paths, a kiddies amusement park during much of the year, and specialized events, like the Summer Concert Series and Seabreeze Jazz Festival. The Grand Theatre offers 16 different theatres, so when you're ready to just sit and be entertained, you have lots of options available. .
Just down the road is the Frank Brown Park, a recreational facility with baseball fields, playgrounds, fishing and picnic areas, and an aquatic center. Many regional and national competitions are held here throughout the year.
Ready to hit the Links? There are several nearby golf courses nestled amidst wetlands, marshes, lakes, and preserves, all framed with a stunning assortment of palms, pines, sea grass and azaleas. Every golfer can find an enjoyable challenge!
Is scuba diving is your passion, there are some wonderful opportunities for unique dives. When the new Hathaway Bridge was constructed (the big bridge linking the beach to Panama City), the old bridge was broken into several sections and buried out in the Gulf to become artificial reefs. They are now hosts to an amazing population of reef fish and corals.
Thank you for considering our condo for your beach plans. We would love to have you as our guests!

Why Carol Bryant chose Panama City Beach
Ocean Reef is in a perfect location. We have the advantage of being on the prestigious west end, but everything the area has to offer is only a short distance away. Just to the east of us is Thomas Drive and the older sections of Panama City Beach with their history and charm. Then, about a mile to the west is the new Pier Park that offers extensive shopping, great restaurants and lots of entertainment venues. We are so convenient to the new International airport, as well, so friends and family can get to us easily.
What makes this Condo unique
We loved this east facing end unit. Where else can you see both breathtaking sunrises and stunning sunsets? This development also features the largest balconies on the beach. At 280 sq ft they provide another living area, and we have enjoyed our table/chairs and lounge chairs while listening to the surf. Why else would you come to the beach?!

Amazing, Breathtaking, Beautiful!
Loved this property!! The view was one of a kind. The owners were very prompt in answering my questions. Would highly recommend this unit to anyone!!
Definitely meet our needs
Wonderful time was had by all.
1301 was very clean well equipped. There were 8 adults in our party and we had plenty of room day and night. It is close to just about anything you will need. Kitchen is very up to date and well equipped. Only suggestion is may be hand grips for getting out of the tub/shower. Hope to be able to come back.
Everything was perfect. The room was nice, clean and very accommodating. The view was absolutely amazing. We will be booking this room again!
This spacious and comfortable condo is updated and has everything you need for a stay at the beach! The beautiful ocean is only steps away. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and the beautiful large balcony! Carol was great at making sure we had everything we needed from reservations, to the moment we arrived, and beyond! We will definitely stay here again!
Very nice, enjoyed the stay.
Very nice condo. Well kept and clean. Looking forward to coming back in the fall.
Ocean Reef is the perfect location! It is in the middle of the Panama City Beach coastline. You are close to the iconic parts of the beach that has made it so popular for the last half. And, yet you are on the new, highly sought after western side of beach with its easy access to Pier Park shopping and entertainment, the Frank Brown Recreation facility, and so many new restaurants and fun venues. With Ocean Reef as your home base, you can easily reach all of the fun things there are to do in the area.
Of course, there's the beach, but for a unique experience, go on a 'Swim with the dolphins' tours where you'll get wonderful photo opportunities as the dolphins come right up to the boat! Our local beach service can set up other recreational water activities like, banana boat rides, parasailing, and jet skis. For a change of pace, you, or when weather concerns have you seeking indoor activities, visit Gulf World Marine Park, Ripley's Believe it or Not, or Wonder Works. You'll recognize the latter by its upside down building! Of course, we have all of those fun things that complete a beach vacation... miniature golf, a water park and plenty of shopping and entertainment at Pier Park.
As part of our guest's arrival package, we provide information on these activities and more, along with our favorite restaurants.
