Overview

About the property

A beautifully appointed, prof. decorated 3BR/2BA condo awaits making memories!

FREE BEACH SERVICE for the 2017 season!!

Wifi and Reserved PARKING! are always a plus!!!

Panama City Beach is growing and construction is a among the necessary "pains" of the process. SO...while Front Beach Road is being improved upon...I will be taking 10% off of ALL WEEKLY rental rates until it is completed.** PRICE REFLECTS DISCOUNT!

I will also provide guests with more precise instructions in how to get into and out of the parking garage with more ease....and rest assured Majestic itself is NOT impaired by this process...only the parking portions will be somewhat inconvenient IF you are not prepared and informed.

(***ALSO...repeat guests that take advantage of this deal will have the lower rates honored for the following 2 years after their initial visit!)

Conveniently located on the far west end of Tower 1 on the 9th floor and just steps from the elevator, you'll arrive to our 'home away from home' beach oasis.

You will encounter a spotlessly clean and well appointed kitchen, ready for cooking in...or serving take out/delivery on the balcony with spectacular Gulf and beach views. Several small appliances are provided for your use and enjoyment. This includes microwave, electric can opener, an efficient blender, a 4-slice toaster with bagel option capabilities, coffee maker, crock pot (so IT can cook all day while you play!), a waffle iron, various sized pots/pans & skillets, and bakeware/cookie sheets/and mixing bowels for sweet home-made treats.

The kitchen counter has a raised breakfast bar, and stools, while the dining table comfortably sits 6. You can watch the waves while preparing snacks or feeding the family, and can swivel the living room tv to keep up with the local news and 'events' channels.

The connecting living room has a full sized extra deep sofa and love seat in addition to two comfortable side chairs. The tv is a 50' LG, with inputs that are easily reached from the side for your tv accessories and 'toys'. A Sony dvd blu-ray is connected for your use and enjoyment.

The balcony can be accessed from the living room, and is furnished with 2 counter-height tables, 4 chairs and 2 stools. (there will be added seating in the near future..and quite possibly by the time our first guest arrives...but I just haven't got it yet to describe it! LOL). Electric grills are allowed on the balcony though none is provided at this time. You are welcome to bring and care for your own if you desire. It is our preference that you do not smoke on the balcony, but if you do, and any furniture is burned or marred your deposit will be forfeited.

The master bedroom presents with a beautiful Gulf view and access to the balcony. A king-sized bed with ample pillows and a faux fur blanket at the foot beckon for extra cuddling and long lazy mornings. Night stands with spacious drawers and a large dresser are ready for your clothing storage needs, and if that isn't enough...well there is a generous walk in closet as you enter your private master bath. The bath suite is complete with his & her sinks, a walk-in shower, and an over-sized jetted tub. After a long fun day on the beach it is a delight to recline in the comfy bed and enjoy the 32' Vizio Razor LED smart TV (and even a DVD player for your favorite movies). This room alone 'makes' my vacation a truly restful one!

The front guest room has a queen sized bed beautifully appointed, a spacious dresser and night stand for storage along with an ample closet with full length mirrors. This room also has an AKIA 20' Flat screen LED tv with built-in DVD player and several inputs for gaming/Roku or other tv accessories (these are not provided, but you are welcome to bring your own).

Across the hall is the bunk room, which has 2 twin sized stacked bunk beds with ladder. The room is 'kid' friendly and equipped with their own 39' flat screen tv (with front inputs for gaming) and a DVD player connected. Extra storage is available in the chest of drawers, which ARE anchored to the wall to prevent accidental tipping! The closet in this room houses a full sized stacked washer and dryer, vacuum, and folding towel rack for your convenience.

**** There are beds for 6, to sleep comfortably. IF you have a couple of extra people/children...the sofa and love seat are both the depth of a twin bed (a smidge wider actually with the back pillows removed). The sofa can accommodate the taller of the two extra people, while the loveseat would be best for someone under 5' tall.

The second full bath with tub and shower is adjacent to and has direct access to the larger of the guest rooms, and separate entry from the hallway.

The condo has free 'open' wifi provided by the resort.

Comcast digital cable is set up and services each of the bedrooms and the LR, and includes HBO.

The unit does come with a designated private parking space on the 3rd floor parking garage very close to the 3rd floor entrance.

The resort has multiple beach-side swimming pools and hot tubs . Access to one of the indoor pools and out door pools is just a quick ride down the elevator...as is the arcade, Starbucks Coffee shop and deli market and a pool-side bar.

A very well equipped fitness center is on site, but does require a small fee TO the resort for use. It has professional quality high end machinery (treadmills/ellipticals/bikes, free weights, and in either bath facility...showers and dry as well as steam sauna's). Tennis courts are on the top floor of the parking garage, and a theater is avail. next to the gym. (I honestly don't know at this time if there is a fee for that, sorry...still new to me)

There is a HUGE banquet hall for weddings, reunions, or special events; and if this is a need for you we will get you further details.

As indicated earlier, we are fairly new in acquiring this property, so if you have questions please feel free to ask. If I don't know the answer right away, I can always find out.

I may be reached between the hours of 10am - 10pm via texts or calls. Or will view messages.

Thank you!

About DaRinda Baggett

Tony and I would like to welcome you to our Majestic Beach Tower condo. Both of us were born in Missouri, though in completely different regions. Tony's family comes from Grandin, near the boothill region (famous for it peaches and tomatoes); and mine more centrally located in Higginsville, a couple hours south of the KC area.

We both had fairly simple lives...his father worked in the timber industry, and mother was a teacher. My dad worked for the Federal Penitentiary Systems and my mom remained a 'stay home' mom for all of my (and my brothers) youth. I moved all over the country, it seemed, while growing up as my dad was transferred from office to office. He was the head of his field, and designated to bringing each facility up to optimal standards. He retired in Springfield,MO when I reached high school so that THAT experience wouldn't be disrupted for me. Tony went to high school in Doniphan MO, and attended college in Poplar Bluff, working various 'tech' jobs and such until he and his brother started a business in Ozark MO in 1985. While he was doing that, I was attending college at Drury in association to obtaining my RN, and working at a local Springfield hospital. Since he was busy building a business...and I was busy working building a career..neither of us really had time to date, and as fate would have it...we met through a 'video dating service' and married some 6-7 months later.

We reside in Ozark, MO where he and his brother built a substantial business over a 20+ year span...and has since been sold a few years back introducing Tony to a semi-retired status. I currently own a local day spa which is in it's 8th year of operation. It has been a lot of fun, and something I will miss someday.

We have 3 grown children. Brandon, 29, is the regions best graphic designer specializing in vehicle wraps. Amanda, 23, and about to celebrate her 1st wedding anniversary, is a phlebotomist and NT at the spa, & Rebekah, 20 going to college, and on the Chancellors list.

DaRinda Baggett purchased this condo in 2014

Why DaRinda Baggett chose Panama City Beach Area

We were married in 1988, and have been coming PCB annually since 1990 (except for maybe 5 years scattered here and there due to poor health or family matters needing our presence at home).

We had spent our honeymoon in Paradise Island, Bahama's...the first time either of us had ever been on a plane, let alone out of the country.

That adventure, and the beauty of the 'islands' left us searching for something closer to home...or at least in the states that we could enjoy. We had read about and decided to visit St. Andrews to camp, prompted by Tony's love of camping while growing up in SWMO. Camping wasn't completely foreign to me, but was something my family did only once. (I had a wonderful dad who liked to fish, but hated spiders, snakes and bugs...so I was spared the 'roughing it' experiences.)

After years of camping in tents we graduated up to a pop-up camper (and I dragged along every small kitchen appliance I had...toaster ovens, microwaves, mini fridge, and electric skillets were my mainstays. I figured if I was going to cook on my vacation, I'd make it as easy as possible! Soon Tony became 'soft' from fresh baked cookies while camping and we graduated to renting a small 1 BR condo. With 3 children at this point and time..the added privacy (and a hot shower) along with home cooked meals became a desired respite.

Never in a million years, though we had dreamed about it, did we think we would one day own a condo of our own. We bought our first in 2009 (which is currently under a management company, since we didn't have the time to devote to THIS aspect of ownership). Tony has since become more fully retired, and pursues his guitar playing with the local churches, and some buddies from area bands (he's really quite talented!), and other ministry interests. I am near retirement as my business venture takes a new path without me, and look forward to taking on the new challenge of an active role in the management of our condo ownership and usage.

What makes this condo unique

We love our other property on the far end of the beach not far from St. Andrews National Park where our journey and story here in PCB began. However, with growing adult kids and the desire to still have 'family' vacations when possible..the appeal of the 3rd bedroom, even as a bunk room offered them more autonomy. The location of the Majestic is ideal for us since Montego Bay has been a favorite eatery for our family these past 25 years. The loss of the original one on Thomas Dr. was hard, but the newer, bigger, nicer Montego Bay is a healthy walk away from the room in the Shoppes at Edgewater, which also hosts a lot of musical talents during Thunder Beach events, and again, is a walk away so no hassles with parking or finding your car.

Pier Park is maybe 10 minutes away, and the area is growing in leaps and bounds. I love the shopping, the cinema, and the restaurants. The music spilling into the streets from various venues and the outdoor bistro-like seating just makes for a really refreshing day OR evening. The jazz festivals are enjoyable in mid summer, lobster-fest in the late summer months complete with sandcastle competitions should not be missed, and the pirate fest in early October is a delight.

Tony is particularly fond of Thunder beach in the fall, thought the spring events are becoming just as busy and popular. He doesn't have a Harley, but brings his little red scooter and has just as much fun. (If you've ever seen Bill Engvall's comedy piece about his experience on a scooter/ and the bugs...you've just shared a real life experience of Tony's which will garner a belly laugh every time it's told).

There is SO much to do and see here in PCB, we hope that you'll come over and over again, just as we have. It is truly our second home, and as familiar as our homestead in MO. Welcome & Enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I just returned from this beautifully appointed condo. I enjoyed the view and the amenities very much. I found the Towers, a safe and friendly place for our family and the best access was fantastic. The view from the relaxing balcony was great as well. I would certainly add this to my list of favorite properties for future stays. Thank you to the owners for sharing your home with our family.

Great Location plenty of services available

  • 4 of 5

The unit is located in a great location and the property has lots of services on property so that travel is cut to a minimum. The owner was great to work with and communication was good with the owner. The staff was friendly and helpful when needed on site. The only negative was the elevator wait times, but it was a peek travel date (last week in July) all in all we would book again...

Owner's Response: Thank you Larry, I am glad you enjoyed your stay! The elevators have been a source of frustration, and the HOA have been cognizant of the issue. Thankfully, we have been pro-active and the entirety of the situation has been addressed with new computer systems put into place to speed up the effectiveness. This will net shorter wait times. Now, the elevators can sense when the elevator is full and will bypass unnecessary stops, much like hospital elevators are managed. Peak season will definitely test the over-all outcome; but our stay in October was seamless in getting to the condo.

Beautiful views and comfy condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5, 4 adults and a 14-year-old, greatly enjoyed our stay! The unit is exactly as described. It was clean, fully stocked kitchen, and the couches and beds were extremely comfy. DaRinda is wonderful to work with; she replies immediately and is very personable. The views from the condo are amazing! We felt a little spoiled having a private parking spot and the beach chairs and umbrella each day. Would highly recommend this rental to friends and family.

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance with future get-aways, and thank you SO much for the kind referrals! For me, this is the one of my greatest compliments...a happy guest, a returning guest, and one that refers to family and friends!

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

I found the unit exactly as described. The unit was clean and in order. We didn't have any issues while we were there. DaRinda was wonderful to deal with before during and after. I would absolutely recommend this unit to everyone. Weather was wonderful and there was plenty to do and see close by.

Owner's Response: Thank you SO much Shelia for your kind review. If ever I can help with future vacations, please don't hesitate to contact me. We love our home at the beach, and actively update and improve it each year so it is fresh and up-to-date for our guests when they arrive. I do offer discounts for repeat guests...and a $100 discount for bookings for 2017 made by or before 12/31/2016 for those who are able to plan ahead. Thank you again...and have a wonderful rest of the year! DaRinda

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Panama City Beach is not the place for anyone over 18 during spring break. My mother and I never left our condo after 5 pm. Thank goodness our condo was big and beautiful. Our view of the gulf was amazing.

Owner's Response: Thank you Michelle for your helpful review. I agree that Spring Break is, as stated when we first talked prior to renting, a time of year that can be chaotic and "crazy". One will definitely see/hear things they wish they had not...and traffic IS awful. It is my understanding this past Spring Break, during your stay, was uncharacteristically worse than years past. The plus side to this is that the local government AND the local PD have instituted measures to curtail this nonsense in coming years. The HOA of Majestic has also instituted measures to help discourage disrespectful behaviors as well. With a concerted effort...it is my and the local residents desire and determination that will help return PCB to the "Family Oriented" destination it has always been, and maintain that atmosphere year round. I am glad that the condo fully met your needs, and did not add to any anxiety experienced through Spring Break. Look forward to seeing you again in the future. I think you'd enjoy the month of May, or the fall as it is considerably less congested, water remains just as beautiful, and the environment as a whole more of what I believe you were expecting.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our winter getaway at PCB,,, our condo was a little smaller in square footage than we have had at Orange Beach Ala... paying a little more for this condo... The condo is decorated with all upscale furniture etc. very comfortable,,, just too much furniture & decorations for the amount of space..sometimes a little less is better. The kitchen is very well stocked w nice dishes etc..particularly liked the waffle maker..I would add a large pan for cooking fresh shrimp & crab legs..I'm sure DaRinda just hasn't thought of that, perhaps not into getting fresh seafood off the boat, which is what we did several times... Absolutely love the view of sunsets & the nice deck furniture...Also the beds are most comfortable..Didnt like the bunkbed room..this would be nice if there were small children,,they would probably love it.We are past that...DaRinda & Donna their, manager,.were very helpful.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay! The oversight of a larger stock pot for preparing crab legs will be evaluated by guests' request for it. I take each request seriously, but admittedly, Tony's allergies to seafood have put it a bit lower in my thought process. Also, during peak time frames and quicker 'flips' I am uncertain if the odor created when cooking such items would be effectively removed. I will bring this up in some forums and blogs I belong to, and ALSO listen to future guests on this subject. Thus far...it just hadn't been a thought to consider, nor a concern of past guests. The condo decor may be a bit much for some, but by and large our past guests have shared they "felt at home". We have made few changes since acquiring it last year, but as they need to be done, I will certainly keep in mind 'less is more'. The focus when we first placed it available to share was to provide those "little things" that make the stay effortless, and comfortable... Our condo will continually be a "work in progress" as we find that it is crucial to be engaged and involved with out guests, and keeping things modern and new. Thank you for your candid input. It is always appreciated :) Looking forward to future stays DaRinda

Condo sits ON the beach

The condo is located in close proximity to several grocery chains...Publix/ Winn Dixie / 2 Walmart Supercenters/ Target Superstore.

Countless restaurants surround the complex and are easy to get in and out of, so will easily find something for everyone's personal tastes. Local menus are kept in the condo for you to review to assist in the choices. A personal special family treat is Brewster Real Icecream shops. There is one less than a mile east of the resort, and a bigger location on Thomas Dr.

Coconut Grove miniature golf and mazes has been a family mainstay. With 2 mazes and 2 mini golf circuits it was feasible for us to purchase the annual pass and go over and over again in the same week. The 3 kids would challenge each other on times through the maze or scores at golf, and never got bored with it. There are numerous mini golf courses to choose from, the Bungie Swing (and if you get the DVD, which IS a hoot!, and bring it with you on future trips to PCB...they add to it the new footage and reduce the price for returning guests). I think the girls would shoot me if I uploaded theirs, but I just might for grins. Ripley's Titanic and WonderWorks are a fun way to spend the day. Gulf World has been a family favorite repeated for many, many years. Each child has been chosen to be kissed by the sea lion, and the return pass for the night time laser show was very enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed watching the dolphin swim at night and watch the laser show as well, then the kids and adults communicating with them after the show using the hand signals learned earlier in the day. Memories! You'll never forget how soft a stingray feels, and if you have on red or salmon colored nail polish they think it is food and will glide over your hand. hey can't hurt you, and listening to the little ones squeal will make you smile. They get SO excited.

With the beach at our back door we've never been to Shipwreck Island, but I do keep a guest book in the condo and encourage guests to share their experiences with others, and leave suggestions for me that would make their stay even more complete.
