About the property

Ground level 2BR, 2BA - Best Location - New Furnishings - Exceptionally Clean!






First Floor Convenience just cannot be beat!

Park just steps from the front door and move right in.

Put on your flip flops, open the sliding doors, and you have arrived in Paradise...You are 40 flip flop paces from the hot tub!

I counted!!!!!😎

Welcome to your Beach House on the Moon!

You'll love that you can sit right outside your condo, sipping a cool beverage of your choice, watching your loved ones having the time of their lives. The pool closes in the evening, so it is nice and quiet when you only want to hear the sound of the surf lull you to sleep.

This ground level condo is absolutely gorgeous!

With new upscale beach-cottage decor, you feel as though you are staying in a first rate beach cottage, but with all the amenities of a first class condo.

Fantastic view from kitchen! Remodelers 'opened up' the kitchen and removed the small overhead cabinets and large hall closet that blocked the ocean view!

Added extra custom cherry cabinets (lots of kitchen storage space) in kitchen and baths, and granite countertops in the kitchen and both baths.


Enjoy watching the 50' LG flat screen TV from the plush, comfy sofa (queen sleeper accommodates 2) and matching love seat in the Living Room. Open the sliding doors and listen. The ocean's calling your name!

The King Master Suite has sliding glass doors that open to the patio too, so you can enjoy the ocean and pool even while indoors as you watch the 42 "LG flat screen TV, Life’s so easy here. You can relax on the patio and watch the little ones run inside and out in total freedom. Isn’t this what a vacation is all about? No worries about hauling anything down stairs or an elevator - ever!

You will live right where everyone else at Moonspinner wants/needs to be for all the fun…the pool and the ocean, and the hot tub! We are just 40 strides from the jacuzzi!

Life is better in Flip Flops on the Moon!

The fully equipped kitchen has all the bells and whistles that you’ll need, plus a full size front loading washer and dryer for your convenience. What a view from the kitchen sink! This unit was custom re-designed to open up the kitchen area so the cook can enjoy the ocean view outside even when preparing meals.

Two (2) QUEEN Beds in the oversized guest bedroom, full bath access, huge walk-in closet, and 32' LG TV.

We love children! We provide a PACK-N-PLAY and HIGH CHAIR for little beach lovers too!

I am really excited that I was able to pre-pay the rental of front row beach chair and umbrella setups for our guests for the entire season (March thru October).

RELAX in luxury all week long.

If you love making trips into St. Andrews State Park by car, so you can stay and play and explore the pristine beaches of Shell Island…you may want to join a non-profit organization called FRIENDS OF ST ANDREWS.



Besides making a contribution so the volunteer members can continue to make improvements to the park for the benefit of all who visit, you will receive a membership card for 12 visits annually to St Andrews State Park. WIN-WIN!

For a family, that averages a little over $2 per vehicle/visit.

Normal gate admission is $8 per vehicle/visit.

You can join online, so you will have your card during your visit!

No NO’s -

Sorry, no smoking or vapor products (not even on our balcony).

No pets. We have a grandson who is highly allergic, so please do not ask if you can bring your pet, as it would be a hardship to our family. We love our "granddogs" too, but even our own children cannot bring their pets. There are kennels nearby for your convenience.

VRBO does not share your phone or email address with us until after you have paid the deposit. We ask that you mail a personal check or money order for the balance due, along with the completed rental agreement that you can print out.

We are charge a percentage of the rent, if you pay the balance online with a credit card, which we would have to pass along to our guests. Makes it a lot easier and saves all of us money if you will simply send your payment along with the rental agreement. Thank you for understanding!


We do NOT rent to under 25 without parents, who must be present the entire rental period.

We usually only rent with a Saturday check in. There are exceptions, so please contact us before you do an instant booking, and we will let you know if that will work.

Ten years from now you will not remember the extra money you spent on a premium condo. What you (and your family) WILL remember is the best beach vacation you ever had! Let me put your family in FIRST FLOOR FLIP FLOPS ON THE MOON! Feel free to call me anytime if you ever need anything during your stay. Helping you make the most of your stay in Panama City Beach is the next best thing to being there for me!

Sunshine Always,

Sharon Lewin Campbell


WOW! We just got the best review of all time! I have been booking our beach condos since 2006, and have gotten lots of great reviews from many of our wonderful guests, but this one is my favorite. I do not know Michelle (the guest who sent the following review to VRBO), and have never met her, I promise!

Below is her review, copied and pasted verbatim:




We've been coming to PCB forever. Like, FOREVER. And have stayed at nearly every condo between St Andrew's Pier and Carillon Beach. In the past, pretty much any old place would do. But now that we have small children, we have a whole laundry list of preferences/requirements: First floor unit; easy beach access; easy pool access (but not so easy that a determined toddler can make his way in unannounced); washer/dryer in unit; a family-friendly, non-Spring-Breakish atmosphere; super-extra-ultra-mega-clean; and generally a place where we can settle in feel at home.

Flip Flops on the Moon was that, and more. The owners were so nice and accommodating. The unit was tastefully decorated -- which is astonishingly rare in beach condos, for some reason. (No hideous floor-to-ceiling-wall-to-wall mirrors that force you to admire/criticize yourself at all times; thank you for that!) Kitchen was especially lovely. The entire space was well appointed, and not overrun with knick-knacks that would require frantic babyproofing. What else? Convenient baskets for (what else?) flip flops minimized sand getting into everything. There were TONS of great beach toys for the kids, as well as books and videos.

Flip Flops on the Moon was immaculate. I was 100% comfortable letting my little ones crawl around, and I never once got the germy heebie-jeebies. (Fellow germophobes, you all know what I'm talking about.)

But the best part? Such close proximity to the beach, and the beach chairs. When you have little kids, theres a lot of frequent schlepping to and from, with lots of stuff. In the past, this was always a sweaty chore that usually meant negotiating lots of steep stairs while balancing beach bags and babies. But at FFotM, it was a breeze! Step off the patio and take an easy stroll down the boardwalk. There you are! We loved being so close to St. Andrews State Park, and -- in the other direction -- our favorite beachside restaurant, Schooners.

To sum up, we have found our beach home in Flip Flops on the Moon. I intend for my family to return as often as possible, and to continue making wonderful memories here. Thank you so much to the owners and managers for their generous hospitality!

About Sharon Lewin Campbell AKA "Flip Flop Queen"


Our family began vacationing at Moonspinner in 1985. We started out in a pop-up camper at St. Andrews State Park. The next year my parents came with us and stayed at the closest condo to the park - which was Moonspinner. By the second night, our three daughters had moved into the Moonspinner with my Mom and Dad. By the third night we parked the camper in the parking lot at Moonspinner and we ALL moved in with my Mom and Dad! We just loved everything about Moonspinner, and you could walk right next door into the sanctuary of St. Andrews park and enjoy everything that the state's #1 park has to offer.

I always have dreamed of owning a condo at Moonspinner, but it was not always in our budget. We started small, and now own condos at Calypso and Origin.

We are retired now, and keep busy with 10 grandchildren, who LOVE to come to the beach! My 92 year old Dad (the one who started all of this with my Mom, who went to heaven last year) is so happy that I finally have my special place in the sun at Moonspinner. He is looking forward to spending time on the shady patio watching his great-grandchildren at the pool. Family has always come first in our lives - we are blessed.

Dreams DO come true!


Sharon Lewin Campbell AKA "Flip Flop Queen" purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sharon Lewin Campbell AKA "Flip Flop Queen" chose Panama City Beach

Moonspinner was the first condo I had ever stayed in. It is, and has always been, my favorite because you can walk into the park (right next door) and feel like you are stepping back in time and into nature. The sand is whiter, the shells are more plentiful, and the water always seems to be more crystal clear here than anywhere else on Panama City Beach. AND you are only minutes away from world class dining and entertainment! Vacationing at First Floor Moonspinner is truly the best of both worlds.

Staying at FLIP FLOPS ON THE MOON is pure relaxation.... A land of Ahhhhhhhhhs!

What makes this condo unique

Being able to walk right out our door to the pool and beach was important to us. It feels more like a beach house, than a condo. We wake up to the warmth of the Florida sun and walk to the Jetties every morning! There are lots of shells to be collected and dolphins to enjoy. The beach has a magical feel early in the morning when your footprints are the first in the sand!


Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Past and Future Guests,

I am so fortunate to be back "home" in our first floor dream beach condo.

It has been very gratifying to read all the wonderful entries that guests have written in our guestbook. It was so kind of you to take time from you beach vacation to write to me, and I have enjoyed reading each and every one. I liked them so much I have spent the past few hours typing them verbatim, so your advice and comments can be shared with others.

My husband Terry and I will be here until our Snowbird Guest arrives on Jan 15. TWO GLORIOUS WEEKS AWAY FROM THE SNOW & COLD!

"If you're lucky enough to be at the beach, your're lucky enough!"

Just call us LUCKY! Peace, Love and a Happy New Year to all who stay in FLIP FLOPS ON THE MOON!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Clean clean clean. Easy short walk to the beach chairs. Park outside your door. And pool right out side the back door. What better way to spend a lazy beach vacation? No long hauls with the cooler and gear to the beach. Loved it!

Definetly coming back!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Balcony view. Really loved the decorations, gave you a feel of the beach. Felt truly like a second home. The service was great. The location was perfect, really quiet and calm. It was a walk away from the pier. Totally recommend this for a big family. The kids loved it a lot, asking to come again which we are definitely planning to do.

Perfect Location for Family Spring Break!

We couldn't have found a better place to spend Spring Break with our family than FLIP FLOPS ON THE MOON! Having the reserved beach chairs was a huge deal! Liked parking right outside the front door, and going to the beach and pool and hot tub right out the back door. Great Location!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a first time for myself and my guests. Normally we head to South Florida (Pompano Beach Area). Flip Flops is located in a great location, semi-secluded, the condo was beautiful, large spacious open floor plan, decorated like a beach home should look and everything you could possibly need in the condo. Being on the first floor is definitely a plus, you have instant access to the pool and beach area. The guard was fantastic and helpful as could be. Restaurants and shopping were close and it didn't take long to navigate through town without the GPS. Sharon Campbell has always been a pleasure to deal with and always makes you feel welcome in her homes. We'll definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Susanne! What a wonderful review of FLIP FLOPS ON THE MOON! That you consider our Moonspinner condo as your "HOME AWAY FROM HOME" is one of our greatest compliments. Glad to hear you will be coming "HOME" again. Sunshine Always, Sharon and Terry Campbell

Flip Flops...Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

To quote my 11 year old granddaughter, "best vacation ever!" Flip Flops was even more lovely and spacious than we had anticipated. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. Being located on the first floor was so convenient, and we enjoyed visiting St. Andrews Park, next to the condos. The location made it easy to drive to our favorite restaurants; Capt. Anderson's, Pineapple Willie's and Uncle Ernie's, as well as fun shopping spots. The beach chairs/umbrella were only a few steps away, so we spent many hours on the beautiful beach. Our only regret was that we had only book the condo for one week... we were not ready to leave! The owner, Sharon Campbell, is great to deal with. We are looking forward to our next trip and have already recommended Flip Flops to a number of friends and family members. Thank you, Sharon and Terry for sharing your lovely condo with us.
