About the Property

1 bdrm, 1.5 bth with a Gulf view. Perfect for a small family!

This second floor, one bedroom, 1.5 bath unit is newly painted and furnished, and freshly stocked with everything you need for your home away from home. The master bedroom has a king sized bed. There's a commercial-grade queen sleeper in the living room, and two built-in bunks in the hallway - with privacy curtains. The addition of privacy curtains makes a neat 'fort' for the little ones and affords a secluded and more private sleeping space for those of all ages. Beautifully decorated throughout in soothing colors.

Flat screen televisions and DVD players in the living room and master bedroom. The bedroom TV and the living room DVD player are both 'smart' for Internet streaming. Wi-Fi is included as well!

Washer, dryer, ironing board, and iron in the unit. There is an icemaker in the freezer, and the kitchen is fully stocked with place settings for 10, flatware for 12, coffee maker, electric griddle (pancakes, anyone?), rice steamer (great for shrimp, too!), toaster, can opener, crock pot, pots, pans, mixing and serving bowls, and kitchen utensils.


You can feed the turtles from your balcony because the turtle pond with fountain features is located just outside your beach-side door. You can't get any closer to the beach in Horizon South, and you can see the Gulf from your living room and outside balcony (Check out a video of the actual walking distance to the beach: http://youtu.be/2MldniYwNpI) A beach cart is included in the rental for taking your beach gear just across the street where Horizon South has deeded beach access. A beach umbrella and four beach chairs are also available for your use.

This is a quiet complex with easy park-at-your-door access.

Horizon South is a family-oriented, gated community located on the quiet west end of the beach. It is popular with long term vacation renters (snowbirds) and permanent retiree residents, which provides for a more stable and secure environment. There are four pools (one heated in the winter), a hot tub, shuffleboard, basketball and tennis courts, pool tables in the clubhouse, a workout room with equipment, and a miniature putt-putt course located on the premises. Putters and golf balls are available in the condo for your use on the putt-putt course.

This unit is our personal vacation home which we would love to share with others who are looking for a spacious, clean, comfortable, and convenient place on beautiful Panama City Beach!

Please see Owner Info section of this listing to learn more about us. Likewise, please tell us a little about yourself. What brings you to Panama City Beach, who’s joining you, etc. Thank you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Roger and I are happy to share with you our little piece of heaven in Panama City Beach, FL! We love being on the water and live on Lake Harding near Auburn, AL. This property is our personal vacation home we rent to help in offsetting the cost of maintaining it. We do not have multiple units for rent, and this is not a business for us. It's our beach home and we would love for our guests to become part of our rental family, returning to enjoy this getaway for years to come!

Why the Owner Chose Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
I've been coming to the west end of Panama City Beach for more than 50 years. My family always stayed at the original Beachcomber, which back in the day was an old-fashioned beach motel. I have photos of my mother on Panama City Beach taken back in the 30's and 40's, and the love of PCB continues for our family. We prefer to stay out of the more active east end of the beach, and thoroughly enjoy the peaceful setting of Horizon South. After renting a similar unit in Horizon South in 2013, we fell in love with the floor plan and the complex. When a Gulf view unit at Horizon South became available for purchase, we knew it was the right place for us!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Peaceful complex with more mature clientele. Wholesome atmosphere for children/grandchildren. Free putt-putt and other activities within the gated community. Great management team at Horizon South. West end; short drive to outlet shopping in Destin! Frank Brown Park and Pier Park are less than two miles away.
