About the property




This Listing is for UNIT #11 of Bonita Beach, a CORNER (END) UNIT, 2nd floor, 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, condo.

These owners also own UNIT #6 in the 20-unit Bonita Beach complex, which is a 1st floor (lower) unit in the same complex (also 3-bedroom and 3-bathroom with spectacular views of the ocean) (VRBO Listing No. 568194). It may be available when UNIT #11 is not available.

These owners also own Unit #701W of the SPLASH Resort, a 7th floor 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, END (CORNER) UNIT having spectacular views of the ocean (VRBO Listing No. 826419).

UNIT #11 is a privately-owned, open concept, luxurious (top-of-the-line, 5-star hotel look and feel), END (CORNER) UNIT, OCEANFRONT (RIGHT NEXT TO THE OCEAN AND BY THE BEACH), 3-bedroom, 3-full bathroom, 2nd floor (upper), condominium that has AN EXTRA-LARGE, COVERED, WRAP-AROUND BALCONY, and SPECTACULAR, UNOBSTRUCTED, EXPANSIVE VIEWS of the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the white sands of Laguna Beach, gorgeous sunsets, and colorful skies year round TO THE WEST, AS WELL AS STRAIGHT ON, AND TO THE EAST.


Unit #11 has 1650 square feet of living space in a 2-story (low-rise), 20-unit set of five buildings. It is 34-feet wide, which is approximately twice as wide as the average condominium, and with the wrap-around balcony, provides approximately 40 feet of ocean and beach views.

Unit #11 has 12 high-tech floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors in the kitchen, living room, dining room, master bedroom and hall areas. It has MORE floor-to-ceiling beachside windows AND sliding glass doors, significantly MORE ocean, beach and sunset views, and a FAR LARGER, WRAP-AROUND BALCONY, in comparison with inner unit condos at the same complex. It very beneficially has TWO MORE floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the beach and ocean than all inner unit condos at the complex, as well as magnificent WESTERN SUNSET VIEWS from BOTH inside of the condo and the wrap-around balcony, and full views of the ocean down the beach to the east that are not obstructed by any other condos in the complex (unlike inner unit condo at the same complex), as well as such views straight on. Also, unlike inner unit condos at the same complex, this condo very beneficially has SLIDING GLASS DOORS IN THE MASTER BEDROOM THAT LEAD TO THE WRAP-AROUND BALCONY AND PROVIDE VIEWS OF THE OCEAN FROM THE MASTER BEDROOM. These sliding glass doors in the master bedroom open onto the large wrap-around-balcony, and can be left partially open at night to hear the sounds of the ocean while resting or sleeping in bed (unlike in the inner units at this complex).

Unit #11 has an EXTRA LARGE, WRAP-AROUND, COVERED BALCONY (much larger than balconies of inner unit condos at the complex) that can be accessed via TWO separate sets of sliding glass doors, one off of the living room and the other off of the master bedroom, which also has spectacular views of the ocean and beach.

Unit #11, an END (CORNER) condo, is LOCATED NEXT DOOR TO SEVERAL BEAUTIFUL MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR SINGLE FAMILY BEACHFRONT HOMES. Thus, the next door views from this condo are high end, as well.

UNIT #11 has direct, private access to the ocean and beach via only one set of stairs (with no elevators to wait for), sleeps 10 people in beds comfortably, and has two porcelain tile and river rock frameless walk-in showers with matching floors and built-in seats in two of the three bathrooms, as well as a fully renovated kitchen, with all new kitchen cabinets, granite counters and a porcelain tile floor with "drop-ins."

The beach in front of UNIT #11 is very private and relatively un-populated, and has a very peaceful and relaxing feel, which is in great contrast with the often very highly populated, and busy beaches, located in front of many high-rise condominium buildings.

There is only one flight of steps, including a landing, that lead from the wrap-around balcony of UNIT #11 to the sandy beach, and an outdoor shower is present at the base of the steps, permitting guests to conveniently wash sand off from their bodies and beach equipment prior to entering into the condo.

UNIT #11 is beautifully decorated with high quality furnishings, ORIGINAL art work and accessories, including state-of-the-art stainless steel kitchen appliances (including a 31- cubic foot french door refrigerator with a water and ice dispenser, a full size oven and stove, a dish washer and a microwave oven), custom kitchen cabinets with slow-close drawers and accent lighting above, below, and in, such kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, custom bathroom cabinets and mirrors, several Schonbek crystal light fixtures, Casa Blanca and Quoizel ceiling fans, two top-of-the-line Wesley Allen king-sized wrought iron beds in two bedrooms, one such Wesley Allen queen-sized wrought iron bed in a 3rd bedroom, a dining room table having comfortable seating for 10 or more, and a huge island with an eating bar that can comfortably seat at least 6 more on wrought iron and leather bar stools, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, tall cathedral ceilings (which are not present in lower units), crown molding, sky lights, porcelain tile (most floors, master bedroom bathroom shower and floor, and other king bedroom bathroom shower and floor), wood flooring, very comfortable, reclining leather furniture (large couch, two matching chairs and ottoman). Each of the three bedrooms has a 32” Sony television, and the living room has a 65” LG HIGH-DEFINITION, SMART, television. The wrap-around balcony has very comfortable seating for at least 10 adults, along with three separate bar- height tables. This state-of-the-art patio furniture permits the ocean to be clearly viewed by many while very comfortably having appetizers and eating meals on the wrap-around balcony. The condominium has high definition Comcast cable TV and internet, an electronic programmable safe for a heightened security of cash and other valuables (installed by a security company, as in a hotel), a garbage disposal, a coffee pot, a large, full kitchen with all amenities and high-quality utensils, dishware, cookware and bake ware, a new high tech full size clothing washer and dryer, air conditioning and electric heat. Towels and linens are provided, as well as beach chairs and umbrellas. All sheets have at least a 400 thread count. The condominium complex has an in-ground pool, a reserved parking spot (with additional guest parking and additional parking across the street) and refuse pick-up.

Unit #11 has been fully remodeled and updated by a licensed general contractor. All new ceilings (including hurricane clips, insulation, wood and sheet rock) and six new light fixtures were installed in the kitchen, living room, dining room and hallway, and the sheet rock in many of the walls and other ceilings was replaced. New floors were installed throughout the condo, and 10 brand new top-quality floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors were installed in the living room, dining room and hallway areas, as well as a new set of sliding glass doors in the master bedroom. Five brand new sky lights, and new hardy board siding surrounding each sky light, were also installed in the kitchen area, and a new 80-gallon hot water heater, a new Maytag air conditioning, a new garbage disposal unit, and a new, high-tech Samsung washer and dryer were installed in this unit. BOTH the master bedroom bathroom floor, bath tub and shower, and the second king bedroom bathroom floor, bath tub and shower, were fully replaced with large, beautiful porcelain tile and river rock walk-in showers having frameless glass doors and matching porcelain tile bathroom floors including copper 'drop-in' tiles. All three toilets were replaced with new five-star flush Kohler and American Standard toilets. The bathroom cabinets and mirrors in two of the bathrooms were also replaced with new top quality bathroom cabinets and beveled, framed mirrors. The kitchen cabinets and countertops were also replaced with high-end, custom cabinets with slow close drawers and granite counter tops. The entire condominium was freshly painted in colors to match top-quality bedding from Florida Linens, and a new front door was installed. Crown molding was installed throughout the condominium.

For fire safety, this condo has a 5-pound 5BC multipurpose fire extinguisher professionally installed under the kitchen sink that is annually maintained by Advanced Fire Protection Services, Inc., as well as HARD-WIRED smoke detectors that have battery back-ups.

No smoking is permitted.

To formally book this condo, two adults (25 years of age or older) who would be present at the condo throughout the duration of any rental period would need to execute a standard rental agreement that is employed for all rentals of this condo, and provide copies of their drivers licenses to the owners.

These owners have their own detailed cancellation policy, which is fair to both them and their guests, along with a detailed discussion about travel insurance, set forth in their standard rental agreement. The owners' cancellation policy will govern all of their rentals of this condo, not any cancellation policy posted on the VRBO / Home Away web sites. (VRBO / Home Away does not have a Cancellation Policy option for owners that is consistent with their desires.)

About Roberta Heady

This condo is privately owned, and managed, by an intellectual property attorney and an electrical engineer who live in Johns Creek, Georgia, both graduated from Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN), and have four children, three graduated from Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA), and one a 4th year industrial engineering student at Georgia Tech.

The attorney graduated from Marquette University Law School (Milwaukee, WI), and has been employed by Locke Lord LLP for 16 years. Prior to that, she worked for Abbott Laboratories (Waukegan, IL), G.D. Searle & Co. (Skokie, IL), and the law firm Fitch, Even, Tabin & Flannery (Chicago, IL).

The engineer is employed by Gates Corporation (headquartered in Denver, CO).

One of their children is an industrial engineer employed by the Chick-fil-A corporate headquarters (Atlanta, GA). Another child is a quality control supervisor for Tyco International (Lithia Springs, GA). A third child is a logistics specialist for Altria (Richmond, VA).

The owners, and their children, have attended North Point Community Church (Alpharetta, GA), led by senior pastor Andy Stanley, for about 12 years. Roberta and one of their daughters are members of the Gust Services team, and Roberta is a member of the Critical Response team.

The owners manage this property themselves and provide very personal service directly between the owners and their guests. They try to be available for all of their guests at all times, and keep all of their three 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, condos in Panama City Beach, Florida (two at Bonita Beach and one at the SPLASH Resort) in a top condition.

Roberta Heady purchased this condo in 2010

Why Roberta Heady chose West Panama City Beach

THE VIEWS FROM THIS END (CORNER) CONDO, along with those from the other end (corner) units, ARE THE BEST VIEWS AT THE BONITA BEACH COMPLEX.

This property is a very high-end CORNER (END) UNIT with a WRAP-AROUND BALCONY and UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS OF THE OCEAN AND BEACH FROM BOTH INSIDE OF THE CONDO (FROM THE LIVING ROOM, DINING ROOM, KITCHEN, MASTER BEDROOM AND HALLWAY), AND OUTSIDE OF THE CONDO (ALL ALONG THE LARGE WRAP-AROUND BALCONY), AND BOTH STRAIGHT ON AND TO THE EAST (ALL DOWN THE BEACH TO THE EAST). It has two more floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the beach and ocean than all inner units, as well as full views of the ocean down the beach to the east that are not obstructed by other units. Also, unlike any of the inner units, it has sliding glass doors in the master bedroom with views of the ocean, which open onto a large wrap-around balcony, and which can be left partially open at night to hear the sounds of the ocean while in bed.

Additionally, unlike lower units, this condo has cathedral ceilings, which makes this condo have a more open and spacious feel.

Panama City Beach has beautiful white sand and blue oceans, and attractions for all ages, many of which are in Pier Park. It is about a 30-minute drive to Destin, which has many additional restaurants and attractions, and about a 15-minute drive to Panama City, which also has many fun attractions.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is in walking distance to "Thomas Doughnuts and Snack Shop," a very well-known restaurant that has a wide variety of different filled and non-filled fresh doughnuts every morning, as well as many breakfasts and lunches, and an attached ice cream parlor that has many different types of hand-dipped ice cream (cups and cones), sundays, splits, milk shakes, and floats. This is a great attraction for guests.

Spectacular views of the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico and white sands of Laguna beach, lunch and appetizers on the beach, tremendous relaxation, miles of beach for walking or running. It is very private, and has no elevators, unlike high-rise condos.

Being a 2nd floor unit with no elevators, two significant benefits of this property are not having to wait for elevators to get to the unit, or to get to the beach, and having beaches to use that are not crowded (unlike with a high rise building).

Best getaway from the snow ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property! The unit is gorgeous. The furniture is exceptional and the decor is so detailed and beautiful. The bedding and bath linens are top quality. The kitchen is stocked with every conceivable need. The view from the family area is stunning and even better from the wrap around porch. We especially enjoyed the wicker rocking chairs. The large TV provided hours of enjoyment. The master suite is exceptional with large bath and huge shower. Every little detail is perfection. I could go on for ever about the quality of this unit. The owner Roberta was so nice and pleasant, so easy to work with. I highly recommend and hope to return.

We stayed the month of January 2018

Owner's Response: We, the owners of Unit #11, appreciate the comments in this review. We, respectfully want to point out to other potential guests that the star rating of this review is not at all consistent with the photos or videos of Unit #11, or of the Bonita Beach complex ("the complex"), present on the VRBO web site, with the approximately 82 other reviews of Unit #11 and the complex on such web site, with the 52 reviews of our companion condo Unit #6 on such web site, and with the facts below. Because these guests did not provide any negative comments in this review, did not respond to our welcome e-mail message asking if they had any questions/ concerns about Unit #11 at any time, and have not responded to our post-stay e-mail message asking for feedback, we can only speculate that this rating had to do with the weather or deserted nature of the complex during their stay. Both Unit #11 and the complex had been at their highest level of quality in their entire histories at the time of the arrival of these guests. The complex had just finished having an approximately $300,000.00 renovation to its front and sides (all new windows, doors, hardy board siding, trim, lighting, walkways, handrails, steps, landings and pool resurfacing), and had just been freshly painted. We had been at Unit #11 during the 2 weeks directly prior to the arrival of these guests maintaining Unit #11. During this 2-week period, at great expense, we: (i) replaced all of the furniture in the living room with all new furniture; (ii) replaced a bunk bed set with a high-end Wesley Allen queen wrought iron bed; (iii) had all of the tile in the condo professional cleaned and sealed; (iv) replaced all of the curtains; (v) replaced 2 bedspreads (king and queen) with Florida Linens' (very high end) bedspreads; (vi) replaced all of the cable TV boxes; (vii) had an electrician install 2 televisions on 2 different walls; (viii) replaced the water dispenser and an adjacent panel on the refrigerator; (ix) had Advanced Fire Protection Services, Inc. install a professional 5-lb 5BC fire extinguisher in Unit #11; (x) installed 4-inch mattress toppers on 3 beds (2 king and 1 queen); (xi) replaced the coffee maker with a high-end Cuisinart coffee maker, and the crock pot and many pots and pans; (xii) replaced all king and queen sheets with 600 thread count new sheets; (xiii) had a painter touch up all painting; (xiv) had Unit #11 deep cleaned; and (xv) had professional photos taken of Unit #11.

We needed to Exhale and this place Delivered!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay here was wonderful. The place is beautifully decorated; obviously has a fantastic view; and truly is just steps away from the ocean.

It's been 2 1/2 years since my elderly mother and I had taken any kind of vacation, and her health has been taking a down-turn, so I decided we needed to do something fun while she still could. We planned a 3 week road trip thru MS, LA, ending in FL. 3-days-in she gave out, it was just too much. So we came back home and rested for about a week and then drove to PCB and Roberta's property.

Words could never express what a perfect week we had, but I'll try.

The beauty and quiet of the location! The peacefulness of the near-private beach! The easy access to the beach with towels, chairs and umbrellas at the ready! The lovely artwork, the awesome TV, the truly comfy beds! Showers you could dance in! And NO clocks (except on the microwave, of course). I loved that touch - we got used to it the very first day!

The property is in a very lovely neighborhood with pretty beach homes and friendly folks, but it is on Front Beach Road, so you have fairly quick access to all manner of entertainment and great food and shopping (don't miss Pier Park!!!).

My mother and I had the best vacation of our lives there. We've both had so many people tell us how happy and relaxed we look, and we FEEL it. I've been smiling since the second day we got there, and still am!

In all honesty, there were a few, VERY minor issues inside the rental (the water dispenser on the fridge was broken & hadn't been repaired yet; a light switch that didn't work), but this unit shows obvious care, so I imagine those things will be fixed soon.

Roberta supplies you with every amenity and opportunity to completely de-stress and relax, and she was absolutely perfect to work with. She responded almost immediately to every contact I made and was very considerate while helping me plan this special time for my Mom. Also the best owner I've ever worked with before.

Thank you Roberta, for a lovely experience all around.

Anyone who does not take the opportunity to stay at your place is missing something that cannot be found anywhere else. Take Care Ma'am!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind words about Unit #11, which we greatly appreciate. We are so glad that you and your elderly mother were able to really enjoy your stay at Unit #11 and make lasting memories together there. That is what we strive, and hope, for in regard to all of our guests, so we love hearing about your experience at this condo. When we learn from our guests, head cleaner or handyman that any item in Unit #11 becomes in a state of needing repair, we make such repair right away. We have a team of plumbers, electricians, appliance repairmen, handymen, and others, who routinely service Unit #11. Our rental agreements with all guests encourages them to inform us of any item needing repair right away, so that we can have the item promptly repaired. Because Unit #11 is rented almost continuously throughout each year, repairs will occasionally be needed. In regard to the LG refrigerator water dispenser discussed in the review, Davis Appliance on the Beach, our appliance repair company, has ordered a new refrigerator water dispenser from LG, and will install it in Unit #11 this week. We, the owners, are at Unit #11 for two weeks now (the first break in rentals since March), and we are having a licensed electrician review all lights and switches, as well. We also replaced all of the living room furniture in Unit #11 this week, as well as most bedding, and we will have updated professional photos of the same on the VRBO web site in the next few weeks. We hope that you and your mother are able to return to Unit #11 for another vacation together in the future, as you were both lovely guests for us to have at Unit #11. We love having guests such as you all.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacationed here over the kids fall break and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was beautifully decorated and clean! The location of the condo is perfect as well, located close to Pier Park, but still at a location where the beach wasn't overcrowded. We also left a couple of items that the owner gladly had mailed back to us free of charge. I highly recommend staying here!

The condominium is very conveniently located in a quiet area on the west end of Panama City Beach about 12 miles from the Panama City-Bay County International Airport, and about 2 miles from Pier Park and Pier Park North, two huge outside malls on both sides of Highway 98, including more than 1 million square feet of shopping and entertainment, such as numerous restaurants (Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville, Guy Harvey’s Island Grill, The Back Porch Seafood Restaurant, Red Robin, Wild Wings and many others), specialty stores (candy, ice cream, popcorn, coffee, apparel, shoes, jewelry, home décor and others), amusement rides, a climbing wall, live music, night life, a large indoor mall including numerous department stores, a 24-cinema, 4-D, movie theater, a Target, a super Wal-Mart and a Starbucks, and also near to a huge city fishing pier and numerous grocery stores, pharmacies, walk-in medical centers, other restaurants, water parks, amusement parks, miniature golf courses, regular golf courses, museums, the Gulf World Sea Aquarium, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Wonder Works, and many other attractions.
