Property description

Location:
The Summit
8743 Thomas Dr, Unit 906
Panama City, FL 32408

Welcome to my home! I have transitioned the management of the condo to "The Resort Collections", a rental management team that is in-house at The Summit. Please call them [(800) 824-5048] to reserve Unit 906 if you would like to stay in this unit.

You are getting a beautifully appointed home on the beach, not some small hotel room away from the beach. Pricing wise, all condos (and hotels) must charge the 12.5% Tourist Tax. The Summit Complex fee at registration is an additional $15 ($45 spring break). You have to make the first payment to hold the reservation, then final payment at the front desk upon arrival.

ACCOMODATIONS:
Nicely furnished; including a balcony dinette for beach dining! The bunk bed hallway space was converted to a twin seat bench and desk that converts to a bunk bed; it also has a loft bed above which holds an extra mattress for the bottom bunk.

Upgraded High Speed Internet is free!

The living room and bedroom both include a flat screen TV with Basic Cable as well as a blue-ray DVD player with HULU, Netflix, and Pandora - and a cabinet full of DVDs for those rainy afternoons.

Accommodations include:
Large shelf closet in the bedroom plus a smaller 2nd closet. Has two toilets, two sinks, one shower/bath tub; all new hardware. The bedroom has a Hilton quality king bed and a cozy leather love seat. The living room includes an exceptionally comfortable queen tempurpaedic sleeper sofa, and a love seat with a twin size tempurpaedic sleeper mattress.

The well equipped kitchen includes dinner settings for 6, a full array of small appliances, as well as new stainless appliances including microwave w/convection oven, stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker, and filtered drink dispenser in the door. There's even a new high tech combo washer/dryer - throw the clothes in the wash before you go to bed and they are dry when you get up!

It's on the 9th floor, with a large balcony that overlooks the quieter garden area and beach on the west side of the complex.

Facility amenities include a well equipped exercise room, large inside and outside Jacuzzis, sauna, and one of the two large outdoor pools is heated to 85 degrees all winter. Walk to restaurants and lots of arcades and rides. Or, in the winter, join fellow residents in the downstairs lounge for group activities any day of the week!

You will feel like a cherished guest in my home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a map maker and work on disasters around the country. If my condo isn't rented when I'm in between assignments then I'm delighted to spend some time there.

Why the Owner Chose Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
My home is your home. I have made it comfortable for myself and my friends, who use it when it's not rented. Improvements: 2016: New gravity chairs and dinette set for the balcony New twin sleeper sofa New living room rug and coffee table. 2015 New washer/dryer New sliding door window treatment New floors in the "office" and bedroom 2014 New hot water heater New air conditioner/heater New queen sleeper sofa New "office" conversion

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The view is amazing! I have never seen anything more beautiful than a lightning storm come in over the waters at night. I enjoy the camaraderie of the locals and meeting interesting people from all over the world. Or just napping in my gravity chair, listening to the waves breaking on the shore, soaking up the warm winter sun that bakes the balcony in the afternoon. Spinakers is my favorite place to eat in town and it's just a short walk down the beach, with tables on the beach's edge.
