About the property

Thank you for clicking through to view additional details about our personal beach retreat. To improve the chance of your reservation request being accepted, please tell us a little about yourself. What brings you to Panama City Beach, who’s joining you, etc. We believe this is a reasonable request, and a courtesy we would happily extend if inquiring about staying in your home. Thank you!

______________________________________________________________

This second floor, one bedroom, 1.5 bath unit is tastefully furnished and decorated, 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 ice-maker 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.

We do not have multiple beach rental properties, and this not a business for us. This unit is our personal vacation home we share with others who are looking for spacious, clean, comfortable, and convenient acomodations on beautiful Panama City Beach!

Thank you!

About Susan and Roger Miller

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!

Susan and Roger Miller purchased this condo in 2014

Why Susan and Roger Miller chose Florida

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!

What makes this condo unique

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.

What a beautiful condo! Our family had a blast this year! Location was great, short stroll to the beach & lots of fun for the kiddos on site & food & shops nearby! Susan (&Roger) were wonderful to work with made the entire trip a breeze & they were very accommodating, went above all expectations! One of our favorite trips during our stay was to St. Andrews state park ... If you have younger children ... We took ours snorkeling there with the jetty little to no waves to knock them down & beautiful ocean life!!!

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful condo!!

Beach Fans

  • 4 of 5

We would give this condo a very good rating! The location is great and we loved having a view of the ocean. The walk to the beach was a breeze. The interior is decorated with a beachy casual design which feels very comfortable. We really enjoyed the terrace. The palm trees are at the perfect height for bird watching. The turtle pond was an added bonus. When we were initially inquiring about the condo we found the owners to be responsive and helpful. They also are genuinely interested in your experience.

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 4. The condo was beautifully decorated, comfortable, and clean. The best part was sitting out on the balcony and watching the turtles in the pond. Susan and Roger were so nice and easy to work with. It is just a short walk to the beach or the pool. We have stayed at Horizon South many times and this was the best condo that we have ever rented! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone :)

Perfect location and close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a late review. Our trip was back in late June. The condo was perfect for our vacation. There were five of us and we had plenty of sleeping space with the two bunk beds, couch, and bedroom. The condo was nicely decorated and clean. We had no problems with the condo at all. We had friends staying in the Sandpiper so being so close was awesome! There were two beach chairs, an umbrella, and a cart to transport it all to the beach and back. That was nice as we don't have that sort of thing living in Arkansas.

Susan was extremely nice and helpful with questions we had prior to arriving. From initial contact, which her response was almost immediate, she always answered emails promptly. I would recommend this condo for anyone that doesn't want the hassle or expense of a resort or hotel. This was our first experience with VRBO and Susan made it a tremendous experience. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to PCB.....and also never stay in a hotel again while on vacation!

Owner's Response: Hi, Jason - Thanks so much for taking the time to provide a review, and thank you for your kind comments. We are so glad you enjoyed the property and would absolutely love for you and your family to stay with us again. We agree that VRBO is the way to go! In fact, that's how we originally discovered Horizon South ourselves. We appreciate that you selected our condo and hope to hear from you when you determine your travel dates for next summer! All the best, Susan (and Roger)
