Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin this review by stating that this past August is the third-yes third-year in a row that I have chosen to stay at 8627 Surf Drive for my beach getaway. My multiple returns to this property shows just how much I enjoy the time I spend there. The location, right off Thomas Dr., is central to all you vacation needs, while also being out of the way in a quiet and safe area. The direct access to the beach from your patio, without having to deal with elevators, and being able to pull right up and park at your front door, is both convenient and helps to maximize your vacation time. The unit is immaculately kept, has a well stocked kitchen, a modern washer/dryer, cable, wi-fi, and cold a/c-everything to make your beach vacation the best it can be! I'll return next year to stay here again because a condo just can't be any better for a relaxing and enjoyable week on Panama City Beach.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very clean well kept townhouse with a beautiful view. So nice to just walk right out on the beach. The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms were well maintained and clean as was the kitchen. We had plenty of room and it was in a close distance to shopping and restaurants. Upstairs balcony overlooks the beach with two rocking chairs which made for a relaxing shaded spot to sit and admire the gulf. Definitely staying here again next time. Mr. Dees was great to work with.

AWESOME Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was just perfect. No elevators to deal with and no parking to deal with. The unit was extremely clean. Really enjoyed the FULL size washer/dryer front loader. Nice having a FULL bath down stairs. Perfect size for 3 adults and 3 kids. Very nice large patio area and the beach is right out the back door. Loved the shower and water hose hook up outside. Made it really nice not to track a lot of sand into the unit. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone going down for a week or longer. Very convenient to lots of eating places. Not far from Walmart and not right on the main drag of Thomas Dr. Just right behind Thomas Dr. We will rent this property again.
