Guestbook comments from the owner

Vrbo is best so before dropping the flip key site I want to post reviews. We do everything possible to make "The Best Vacation Ever"

"Best Condo!" Nancy in TN

We decided to take a quick Mother-Daughter get away trip in October. This condo was beautifully decorated, Michelle was great to work with and everything was "no effort" easy. If I am in Panama again, I will definitely stay at one of Michelle's condos. She goes above and beyond to make sure that your entire vacation is effortless and relaxing

"Very nice, and very clean!!!" Tabitha

The room was decorated very pretty, and was very clean. There are added extras in the room that is nice, like paper towels, soap, dishwasher det, and things of that matter, it was nice not having to go to store just for those kind of things. Great view from balcony to the pool and beach. We watched 2 weddings while sitting on the balcony. We will definately stay here again.

"Great vacation in Shores of Panama!!" Amanda AL

We have stayed in this unit twice. Very clean, comfortable, and convenient to attractions in PCB. Michelle is so acomadating, she is the best to work with. We will definitely rent from her again!!! Thank you Michelle.

"A place where you can put your worries behind you!" Cassy KY

My husband and I have stayed in this condo twice. The first time was on our honeymoon and the second time we came and brought our 17 year old son and his friend. So the condo is great for couples, friends, and families. The condo is so nice. It has everything you need to make you feel at home. The location of the condo is perfect. Just a few short steps from the elevator and stairs. The view of the pool and beach from the balcony is spectacular! Having a private parking space so close to entrance is so handy. I visit Panama City Beach every few months and have stayed in other condos but I by far love this condo the most. When I am at Shores of Panama I feel so relaxed and safe due to the high security. Michelle the owner makes booking so easy and is so accommodating. I have told my friends and family about this condo. You will not be disappointed.

"fabulous view and very clean" Nancy MI

We only planned on a few nights but after our time was up we did not want to leave, so we extended our stay. Plenty of room for us three women. We had a wonderful time Lots of restaurant and beautiful sunsets and sun rises. Will definitely go back

Excellent property and great location. 10 Day Retirement Trial

  • 4 of 5

Our condo was in a great location on the third floor very close to our parking. Easy to get to.

The condo was clean and well organized. Michelle really makes sure that you get the most out of the experience. It was our first time to Panama City Beach and we are definitely coming back.

We loved the way Michelle ensured that we knew all the best places and things to do.

Her black binder was a great help and everything we needed was in the condo.

The picture shows the exact view from the deck and it is amazing.

Sun hit the deck at about 9 am and was there until after 1 pm. The day bed on the deck was nice in the evening with the breeze.

This is a studio apartment with 2 beds in the sleeping space so there is limited closet and drawer space for clothes. There was only two of us so we used the second bed to lay out clothing. The bed was a little soft for our liking but I guess that is just a preference thing.

All in all it is an excellent property with an excellent owner. Easy to deal with and very communicative. All queries were answered very quickly and once we were at the property we didn't have any questions it was all laid out for us.

All in all I would recommend this property and this owner to any and all. You can't go wrong here. This place is so close to everything and has all the amenities you will ever need. Whether you like the pool or the beach it is perfect, just relax and enjoy.

Suggestions and Observations;

-Condo should have a single shot coffee maker.

-Beds are soft

-Ice maker in fridge is loud so turn off at night

-Use the night breeze and ceiling fan to cool the space it is awesome.

My wife and I took this trip south in preparation for retirement and spent ten days. It was fine for that amount of time but for a longer duration would probably want a bedroom and some closet space.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your stay. You did see the closet in hall next to washer and dryer across from the hutch? In the best vacation ever book it should have to open the door to washer and dryer so blocks off the whole hall and bathroom area from living area. We both hang clothes in closet and my stuff that does not hang I put in hutch and makes a whole dressing and bathroom area with mirrors, ironing board, washer/dryer, closet, hutch open to bathroom. My husband does not like to unpack so his suitcase is on one of the 2 luggage racks but if he did want to unpack there is a chest of drawer near A/c and open drawers in night stand.I do want to caution readers that only during certain times of the year can you open doors at night to cool. The fog rolls in and the moisture and salt can kill the interior of condo and why we built the bed on balcony. Someone left door open and caused kitchen cabinets to have problems so just spent thousands to replace them. However a whole wall of windows for view from beds. Only the studio has this otherwise bedrooms are on the hall side with no view and why we went with studio. Also birds can fly in so opening that wall of windows is nice for short periods of time but please do not fall asleep with them open..and easy to do with sound of fountains and waves. We close the doors and leave ceiling fan on but shut off A/C or heat and stays cool /warm inside but also enjoy the breeze, waves, fountains, on bed on the balcony. We still have another 2 feet to add to bed and was to be down there 28th to do it but father passed away so now will be March 20 before I can add the extension. It does have 12 cup coffee maker and I need all 12 cups my self but now that we have microwave over stove there may be room for one. I know I hate them when in hotels and can't wait to get home with my 12 cups of coffee and regular size refrigerator.

Really Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Condo #306 is very nice condo! The owner is great, will keep you well informed and handle any situation you may have. We did not spend a lot of time in the room, however, it was very clean, well equipped and will definitely be the condo we stay at the next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rick and Rhonda we enjoyed having you!!!! We strive to make each year better. Our goal for this year is to make a custom balcony table and bench that will pull out to a bed for naps looking and listening to the waves on the balcony.

Great view, so clean, perfect size!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed Aug 5-12th, 2017 and had a wonderful trip! Celebrated my daughter's 22nd Bday- perfect size condo for both of us. The view was unbelievable! Weather was great- we spent time at both the beach and the pool. At the end of our trip, the waves were huge so hung out at the pool a little more. Met some amazing people and families. Pinapple Willy's was fun to be able to run to and get a yummy frozen drinks- less expensive than the Tiki hut at the pool. We went on The Adventure Catamaran Cruise to Shell Island- highly recommend it! No shells but lots of fun water sports to do, snorkeling was our favorite. Just like Michelle says, Best Vacation Ever... thanks!

Great location and room. The tv location was slightly awkward, and there weren't any paper towels when we arrived.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay! Always call me if you don't see something, Cynthia should have left a roll of paper towels but I always have things hidden in case somebody needs something. The TV is directly across from the couch but watching TV in bed must turn the other way. We have thought of putting it over the table but then would not be direct in front of couch and my parents spend a lot of time there and don't want to turn their head and feel it would be too high if we moved it over the table.

Very Impressed

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to Panama City Beach. This was our first time staying at Shores of Panama. We stayed from July 15-22. Michelle is an awesome owner. She is a great communicator and the condo was perfect. The view from Condo is awesome, especially if you like a lower floor. We did not use the elevator one time during our stay. The reserved parking on the 3rd floor is great. Very easy access to the room. My wife and 2 children (Ages 5 and 7) were very comfortable and had plenty of room in the condo. The pool and view is amazing. The pool and view of the ocean is the closest place that resembles the Caribbean. We have traveled to Aruba, Antigua, Jamaica, Cancun and Dominican Republic. The Shores of Panama is definitely a place to stay. The only complaint, (which is out of everyone's control) is that the beach was crowded for me. I would definitely stay again and I would most definitely recommend one of Michelle's condos. I know that she has another condo next door that has more bedrooms. Great vacation and a great place to stay in Panama City Beach.

There is anything you can think of to do at Panama City Beach. We hope to soon have a book with a 'budget' vacation to include shopping list, menu, itinerary, restaurants and more. We will also have a 'blow the budget' vacation book. If you have not been to Panama City Beach, it is the best place! If you know you love it once you stay at this condo you will love it even more!
