Booking for spring and summer now. Please contact me for discounted rates at the beautiful, gated Edgewater Beach Resort, where owners cater to family groups. I can answer any questions you might have concerning the resort and my golf villa. I have compiled rates from all 2-bedroom golf villas and have made my new rates very competitive with all the 2-bedroom villas at Edgewater (and much less than some of them). You can't go wrong when you rent from me. Golf Villa 1901 is a bright and beautifully furnished, just updated and freshly painted ground floor, deluxe end unit (larger than interior units)with 1300 square feet of living space. Our villa easily sleeps eight with a king bed in the master, two queens in the guest room, and a queen sofa bed in the living room. We have furnished our unit in tropical decor with all the comforts of home, including cable TV and HBO in the living room and both bedrooms. A seasonally heated pool is adjacent to our building. A beautiful lagoon with a lighted fountain is just outside our back door. Sit on the patio and watch the golfers try to sink that putt on the 4th hole, or look for our turtles to pop their heads up (the turtles and black ducks, which are really coots, love to be fed). Free wifi is available in Golf Villa 1901.

This luxurious full-service resort is the only one of its kind in Panama City Beach, and is rated in the top 100 resorts in the world. Its amazing accommodations both on and off the beach -- championship golf to tennis and spa -- set the stage for a beach experience like no other. The villa side of the resort boasts a challenging nine-hole Par 3 golf course, several pools, lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, stocked lakes, fully equipped fitness center, pro shop and conference center. Golf rates are as follows: Green Fees - $14.00 for 9 holes, $22.00 for 18 holes; cart rental - $10-$15; pull cart - $4.00; rental clubs - $4.00. Tennis fees are as follows: Court fees - $5.50/person/hour - day rate; $21.00/court/hour - night rate; racquet rental - $4.00/hour.

A short walk through the resort and across the private pedestrian bridge brings you to our beautiful 11,000 square foot Lagoon Pool with tropical palm trees, islands, waterfalls, two hot tubs, as well as plenty of lounge chairs for relaxing and listening to the live entertainment provided during spring, summer and fall. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rental on the beach in front of the towers. New Sky Trail for kids: Our 21-foot tall obstacle course allows you to test your skills at heights of 12 feet or more above the ground, secured by a full-body harness and safety lanyard. Also, calling all minnows to the new Splash Pad with 12 fountains and interactive water features. Parents can join in the fun or keep an eye on kids from the surrounding pool deck. If you prefer, a tram runs regularly from the villas to the beach during busy season, and can be called to your door during other months. Enjoy casual dining at the Oceans Bar and Grill where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner inside or outside on the patio. You can also enjoy pizza from Paradise Pizza, Starbucks Coffee and a Krispy Kreme Doughnut or ice cream at Edgie's Market. Room service, something unique for resort condominiums, is available across the resort. A hair salon is located on the property for your use.

In addition to our Executive Par Three Golf Course inside the resort, the Hombre, a 27-hole championship golf course is less than five minutes away. Restaurants, ice cream parlor, entertainment complex (sports bar, video games, skating, bowling, etc.) and miniature golf are across the street, and the new Ripley's Believe it or Not is nearby as well as Wonder World. A Publix Supermarket and several other shops and cafes are two blocks away. Pier Park, a new multi-use facility, is just down the road with 150 shops and restaurants and a multi-theatre cinema. Pier Park North is right across the street from the original Pier Park and features many more new stores and restaurants. Kids young and old will enjoy Shipwreck Island Water Park right around the corner, and Gulf World Marine Park (swim with the dolphins if you like, or just enjoy the show) is just a short distance away. So much to do --so little time. Of course, if you're like me, it's enough to just hang out at the pool or beach.

Panama City Beach's slogan -- 'The World's Most Beautiful Beaches' -- may seem boastful, but in 2013 St.Andrews State Park was voted as having 1 of the top 25 beaches in the US. Other than Spring Break time in late March and early April, the atmosphere is more relaxed and geared toward families. There are numerous amusement parks along the 20-plus miles of shoreline, as well as too many great seafood restaurants to count.

So save money (check out my rates compared to renting through Edgewater Rentals, other rental companies, and from other owners) while enjoying the comforts of home in Susan's Deluxe Golf Villa. Enjoy the Lagoon Pool and the beach, then come back to our villa where it's nice, quiet, and relaxing. Call or e-mail Susan direct (770-317-4371 or

I require a refundable reservation/security deposit to hold the dates you request ($200-$300) which will be returned after unit is inspected and pool tags are mailed back to me ($15 charge for lost pool tags). This refundable deposit is over and above total rental price. If reservation is made through VRBO, the credit card fee is charged to me, so this amount will be deducted from your deposit.

About Susan O'Kelley or Mickey O'Kelley

My late husband Tommy and I were real 'beach' people, and living in the Atlanta, GA area we could always travel to a Georgia beach, a North or South Carolina beach, or a Florida beach within a few hours. Needless to say, our family always spent our vacations at some beach. I'm retired now and my husband Mickey and I enjoy traveling as much as possible, as well as spending time at Edgewater Beach. We have 7 grandchildren between us and spend a lot of time at softball games, baseball games basketball games, football games (two of the granddaughters cheer); in other words, our world is our grandchildrens' world right now -- as it should be.

Susan O'Kelley or Mickey O'Kelley purchased this condo in 1988

Why Susan O'Kelley or Mickey O'Kelley chose Panama City Beach

When my two children were growing up, we always spent our vacations on the East coast of Florida -- Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach (4 of us in one motel room!!), and then we discovered condos at New Smyrna Beach (whew!) when they were teenagers. I had only been to Panama City Beach once for a weekend and it rained the entire time we were there -- didn't like it a bit. Things changed when the AT&T Telephone Pioneers held their annual convention at Edgewater Beach in Panama City in 1988. I absolutely loved Edgewater Beach Resort and, since my husband and I had always wanted to own something at the beach, we bought our 2-bedroom condo in April of that year. We love it there, and when we visit, I just don't want to come back home to Monroe, GA.

What makes this condo unique

We love the Lagoon Pool and the fact that we can walk, take the tram, or drive over and park at the beach if we're taking a lot of stuff over. I actually love our unit in the Golf Villas. We stayed in the Towers several times while renting out our unit and, although it's great to be there on the beach, I didn't like the elevators. I like just being able to park and walk into our ground floor unit, and it's so quiet there. Enjoy the beach and come back to the quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for renting us your condo. Our family had a wonderful time. Hopefully we will be able to rent from you again in the future.

Great Location & Amenities

  • 5 of 5

It was nice to be close to so much while also more private in the villas. Lagoon pool was wonderful & my children loved it! Nice big bedrooms! Cozy but still enough room to branch away from each other. Susan was wonder to work with!

Truly a nice golf villa at Edgewater Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed out stay in Susan's Deluxe Golf Villa. We enjoyed watching the turtles in the pond from the back patio (and watching their little heads pop up to be fed bread crumbs). We usually caught the tram to and from the big pool and the beach, but actually walked a few times and it took no time at all. The pedestrian bridge is great so that you don't have to worry about traffic. This condo was very well equipped for cooking full meals if you needed to, which we did a couple of times. Hope we can come again before too long and stay here again.

Quick Trip to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Golf Villa 1901 even though it was for just a few days. We particularly loved the tropical decor because several other condos we've visited have not been decorated in a beachy style. Even though we rode the tram over to the beach a couple of times, we enjoyed the short walk from the golf villa over to the beach as well. We needed the exercise after all the seafood we ate at the great restaurants in Panama City. There are three good restaurants right across the street in the Shoppes of Edgewater. We will definitely come back to Edgewater Beach Resort and to Golf Villa 1901 again.

Just a few minutes away from the hustle & bustle ...

  • 5 of 5

The resort is always up-to-date and very accommodating. There is frequent tram service to and from the pool. We caught one at 10am and 10pm with very little waiting. The golf villa whisks you away from the hustle and bustle in just a few minutes, yet the fountain right outside the master bedroom creates the relaxation you're looking for...

There's so much for a family to do on the Edgewater pool deck. There's movie nights, karaoke, a splash pad for little ones. Edgewater is constantly updating their services on the one-of-a-kind huge pool deck. It's beautiful, relaxing and fun!!!

Great Villa - Great Hosts

  • 4 of 5

Susan,s Home-away-from-home was great. Had everything we could want on vacation.

Only problem we had was the people renting above us - but that was not Susan's problem.

We have told her about it and she is looking into it.

We would highly recommend the Villa - we enjoyed watching the golfers playinbg right outside the living room window - was great
