About the property

Ground unit w/ bedrooms upstairs... directly across the street from the beach!

King bed in the master, queen and twin in the 2nd bedroom. Both bedrooms have their own bathroom and balcony. Half bath downstairs. Full kitchen and queen fold out couch. Back patio opens to shared back yard space. Unit is directly across the street from the beach, not even 20 steps.

Complex has 4 pools, hot tub, putt putt, pool table, basketball court and gym. Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner at the front of the complex, just steps from our front door.

We visit often so unit is kept up to date and everything working properly.

Horizon South requires a $5 per person amenity fee to be paid upon arrival at the main office or at the Tiki Hut. A wrist band will be issued to be worn at all times. This supports recreational offerings within the resort and helps management monitor the unauthorized presence of non-guests using the property for recreation, parking, and/or our deeded beach access.

About Weekend in the Sand

We have been renting in Horizon South for years and finally had the opportunity to have our own. This is our personal beach home that we want to share with others when we are not there. This is not a business for us, we dont seek out to get rich, we just want to enjoy the beach! Please come make yourself at home and visit often.

Weekend in the Sand purchased this condo in 2013

Why Weekend in the Sand chose Florida North West

Lots of room, well decorated. Bottom unit with rooms upstairs, no need to wake the rest of your guest when you get up for coffee or a morning stroll on the beach. This unit is a bottom corner unit with a large porch. Directly across the street from the beach (20 steps) and maybe 10-15 from the restaurant located in the front of the complex.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is truly an extension of our home, very comfy and up to date. We have thought of everything you need to have in order to just enjoy a vacation. Tennis rackets, beach towels, hair dryer, beach chairs! Just pack your bags and come on!

New owners working toward an outstanding property

  • 4 of 5

Each condo has a carport, and a covered area leading to the door. The new owners have installed motion sensor lights between the car port and the door. This was a very nice feature.

The kitchen is up to date with new cabinets and clean appliances. Including a dishwasher. The kitchen has an open counter so you can sit at the bar and look into the kitchen. Nice for eating lunch.

It has a farmhouse table with chairs for 6.

The living room has a couch and 3 chairs, all of which are comfortable.

There is also a washer/dryer and half bath on this level. The tile floor is very practical.

There are patio doors leading to a patio with a grassy area and a lagoon with a fountain in it. It's a very private area. It also has a charcoal grill, and a table with chairs.

The upstairs has a new wooden floor. The master bedroom, with an updated bathroom, has a shower unit with a seat. It has a comfortable king size bed. There is a small balcony that overlooks the grassy area.

The second bedroom has a full and a twin size bed. It also has another updated bathroom with a tub/shower combo. There is a huge balcony that overlooks the inner area where the carports are. The owners have not worked on this balcony yet.

My only wish was that the bathrooms had a light that you could use to see the into the mirror better.

Overall, it was a great experience and I would love to stay here in the future.

Cannot wait to stay again!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five, two kids, two adults, and our dog, recently booked this condo for a week long stay. We had an incredible time just being together.

The goal of our trip was quality time, and I feel like the rental really encouraged that. The condo itself was clean and modern; the kids loved the bunk beds! The community, Horizon South, was so pleasant with all of the pools, mini-golf and more. Sadly, the "tiki hut" was closed so we couldn't access equipment for the activities, however, the condo had enough equipment that we could as a family play the mini-golf and we brought our own tennis equipment.

While it rained a lot during our trip, we relaxed inside and found the board games that we brought and the condo already had - it was a lot of fun! We cooked in most meals and found the kitchen very accommodating for a chef's delight!

The condo is a short 1/2 mile walk, and we were usually at the beach in five minutes - there was even a red wagon provided for us to use which helped with transporting! We went to the dog beach most days at least for an hour, and we found two - one by the pier, and the other at marker 86. Our waitress recommended that one.

We love hiking and one day explored the Conservation Place located about five minutes from the condo; since it had rained a lot it was a very muddy trip, and the area is mostly flat trails v. climbing, but man it was a wonderful site!

Overall, I could not have asked for a better stay. Shannon has been by far the best to rent from; from start to finish she helped to make our family's trip the most enjoyable it could be. I cannot thank her enough for opening up her home so that we could have this wonderful experience.

Weekend in the Sand and Baseball

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our unit 'Weekend in the Sand' and found it very nicely decorated and homey. We were in Panama City Beach for the World Series event at Frank Brown Park. The park was nice and close and if you used the exit (not on Front Beach Road) you rarely ran into traffic and made it to the park quickly. We enjoyed a day at the beach and other 'tourist' things to do in the area. The location of the unit was close to everything but had access to not be stuck in the main traffic if you chose not to. Really recommend a meal at Boon Docks - however, you will experience a wait - which you will everywhere in the area.
