Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Portside Resort is an established “family friendly” complex with 16 acres of palm trees, 3 swimming pools (one heated for year round swimming), a baby pool, hot tub (also accessible year round), fitness center, shuffleboard and 3 tennis courts - with easy access to the beautiful, white sandy beach across the street. Great for walking, riding bikes throughout the tropical condo area.

It is located on the desirable west end of Panama City Beach, only 15 minutes from our new international airport. It is within 3 miles of Pier Park with all its specialty shops, Grand Theater, and restaurants overlooking the gulf. Frank Brown Park is 5 minutes away with its own huge pool, tennis courts, baseball and softball fields and lots of walking trails. Two four star restaurants are within 2 miles, with great seafood! McDonalds, Winn Dixie, and Walmart are just a few minutes away. Also close are: golf courses, miniature golf, Gulf World, Zoo World, Wonder Works and Ripley's Believe It Or Not. You can rent scooters, jet skis or go parasailing if you wish. Also, Sandestin with it’s famous outlet mall is 30 minutes away.

G-5 (our unit) is located in the middle of the complex, between the tennis courts and the back pool. It has the advantage of being a little more quiet than the front area, and still within easy walking distance to the beach. The patio faces a beautiful lagoon with the back pool on the other side of the lagoon.

Our Master Bedroom has a queen bed with a private balcony; the second bedroom has one twin and one trundle bed. Both rooms have their own TVs w DVD capability. The full bath adjoins both rooms, with a separate vanity in the Master suite. The large first floor living area opens onto a patio, and has a pull out sofa, dining seating for 6 plus a breakfast bar, and a fully furnished kitchen with microwave, blender, ice maker, and coffee maker. There is a TV w DVD and cable, and high speed internet w WiFi. The whole downstairs is set up for family fun and games, as well as easy access to food! Bedrooms and full bath are on the second floor of the townhouse condo.

We are pet friendly (for a well-behaved pet up to 20 lbs). We invite you to come and bring your family for a truly memorable vacation. There is certainly something here for everyone! This is a non-smoking unit. Smoking is only allowed outside on the patio area.

About Barbara Vinson

I am from Bowling Green, KY, where I am a retired nurse and full time real estate investor. I love to dance, play bridge and spend time with my 3 daughters and their families, who live nearby.. We have a lake within 30 miles of us, but travel to PCB for sandy beaches and spectacular sunsets over the ocean.

We enjoy great times in PCB at Portside and we hope that you will take the opportunity to share our little piece of paradise.

Barbara Vinson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Barbara Vinson chose West Panama City Beach

Our family has been vacationing on the Emerald Coast for years and I purchased this unit when SouthWest Airlines made flights very affordable and easy to get here. I love having the pools and hot tub within walking distance, and the easy access to beautiful white beaches.

Pier Park Mall is just minutes away. It has incredible shopping and dining opportunities. The Frank Brown Ball Park is only 2 miles down Back Beach Road, and is used frequently for ball tournaments.

There is a wonderful homemade doughnut shop just down the road that is too, too good, but you have to get there early to avoid long lines!

I am proud of the way the property is maintained. It has a wonderful, strong and positive recommendation from all the locals as one of the "best maintained resorts in PCB". 16 acres of palm trees and the beautiful pools are showcased by the love and care of the staff and property owners.

Definitely a 'family' place to stay!

What makes this condo unique

We love that the unit is in walking distance to the beach...no need to start the car. Also love to sit on the couch, or be at the dining table and look out at the lagoon and the luscious landscaping through the sliding glass doors. Or better, to have meals on that patio in the shaded beauty of Florida palms.

There are wonderful consignment shops, a huge shopping mall, lots of restaurants and specialty shops close by. We are about 5 miles away from the heavily trafficked areas of the college youth and bikers. close enough to get to if you wish, but far enough away to enjoy privacy and peace, with the beauty of the beach.

The airport is only 15 minutes away. We have all the comforts of home right here waiting! There are lots of things to do and to discover while you are here...or you can truly relax and just enjoy the sun, sparkling waters of the Gulf and the white sandy beaches.

Definitely worth staying here!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very clean. The pools are great. A very short walk to the beach. Even our furbaby loved it. Will definitely stay here again.

Great property for the whole family !

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation rental fell through and Barbara was able to help us out with only a one day notice! The townhome was amazing and was perfect for the whole family. The property is located across the street from the beach in a very quiet area away from the hustle and bustle but it is still only a few short steps to the beach. You can easily stay out on the beach all day and still run back to use the bathroom or make lunch at the townhome. We saved a lot of $ this way. It's the best of both worlds. The kitchen was fully equipped and I made breakfast every morning and dinner on several nights. The frontroom furniture was mostly brand new and still had the brand new smell. The additional bathroom downstairs was very convenient. The upstairs master had a very comfortable queen sized bed. We are used to a king and were skeptical but we fit just fine and slept soooooo good! Our two boys loved there bedroom and they said the two beds were comfortable. They had plenty of room for their things and hooked up there game system to the TV and played a couple nights before bed. The washer and dryer seem to be nearly brand new as I did at least 2 loads every day. Overall, this was our 4th vacation to Panama city beach and we will continue to stay at this property in the future! We cant wait to go back! Thank you so much Barbara!!!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first homeaway rental and we were very skeptical. When we arrived we were very pleased. Barbara's place was very nice and in a great location. Pools were very refreshing and beautiful. We were so happy because our fur baby was also welcomed. Will definitely look into this place again on another PCB vacation.

Great place to stay and enjoy the beach.

We enjoyed the rental unit and the close walk to the beach! The master bed was the comfiest I've ever slept on! Everything was very orderly and clean. The kids loved the pool and tennis courts.
