Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

From the oversized balcony of this spacious condo, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the Gulf in all its moods. Sun sparkles off the aqua waters of the Gulf, and the sugary white beaches of the Emerald Coast will pull your toward them like siren song.

Just minutes from the new International Airport and Pier Park, you are in Tropic Winds, the newest development in Panama City Beach located on the prestigious and quiet west end. The condo has been comfortably furnished to provide that perfect retreat whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, or a fun-filled vacation.

Upon arrival, you’ll park in your reserved, covered parking place just a few feet from the elevators. No schlepping luggage and groceries from afar, or trying to find a place to park each time you return. Unique to this development, and one of its best features, is the spacious, over sized balcony – 280 sq. ft – one of the largest in Panama City Beach! This huge space has been furnished to provide another living area with the table & chairs, and comfortable lounge chairs. It's the best "restaurant" seating anywhere, and there's plenty of room for everyone. You can often see rays and dolphins and other sea life that come to visit. Imagine sipping your favorite beverage while watching the first rays of sun burst into the sky, or saying a temporary farewell to the sun as it dips into the ocean amid a blaze of color. What a setting for you to marvel at these wonders of Nature.

Before you strike out to see what Panama City Beach has to offer, we invite you to first tour your condo. The carpeting has been replaced with tile flooring for practical use. The tile looks like hardwood and offers the same rich feel that hardwood provides, but affords the practical need for tile at the beach. It's the best of both worlds!

The living room is comfortably furnished with a brand new full size sofa, and brand new stylish side chairs. The sofa converts to a queen sleeper. A large flat screen TV and DVD player are provided for your enjoyment, along with games and other beachie toys. The stylish dining room area can seat 10. The table is set for 6 and their are 4 bar stools right next to the table. Room for the whole family!

The kitchen features bright, cheerful maple cabinets with upgraded stainless appliances and granite counter tops. It is also well stocked to provide all that you need to prepare those vacation menus. The HE washer and dryer are provided for your convenience.

Realizing it can be difficult to bring all the things you need for those little ones, we provide a pack n' play and a high chair booster that can be attached to a chair.

The master bedroom features a king size bed with comfy mattress and its own private bath. You'll also find a flat screen TV and DVD player. This room has its own access to the balcony for those private evening visits or the chance to catch the first rays of sun before everyone is up.

The second master bedroom also features a king size bed with its own private bath. In addition, it offers a flat screen TV and DVD player.

In the third bedroom you will find TWO double beds! As with the other bedrooms, it offers a flat screen TV and DVD player. It also has its own full bathroom, which opens into the hallway, so it can be used as a restroom for your visiting guests.

Don't forget these FREE features....

*** Free Wi-Fi

*** Free Beach Service (two chairs/umbrella)

Now it’s time to get out and explore! Of course there are plenty of “beach” things to do, starting with Tropic Winds own private 300 feet of white sandy beach. With your free beach service... 2 chairs and an umbrella... you have a good place to set up your 'beach central.'

For a change, check out Shell Island, a natural, undeveloped island which lies between the Gulf of Mexico and St. Andrews Bay. It is home to one of the world's highest concentrations of bottle-nosed dolphins, and the island's pristine beauty and abundant wildlife make it an enjoyable and exciting way to spend the day. Even the short shuttle boat ride over is part of the adventure!

In addition to all of the fun and exciting beach activities you would expect to find, you are also conveniently located to Pier Park, a new open air complex right on Front Beach Road with extensive shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. Familiar retailers and restaurants have made a home in the largest retail center in Northwest Florida. With its beautifully landscaped walking paths, a park for summer concerts and festivals, and The Southern Theater’s Grand Theater which offers 16 movie theaters, there is something for everyone. During the summer months you will also find a Kiddie amusement area with rides and games.

Just down the road is the Frank Brown Park, a recreational facility with baseball fields, playgrounds, fishing and picnic areas, and an aquatic center.

Ready to hit the Links? There are several nearby golf courses nestled amidst wetlands, marshes, lakes, and preserves, all framed with a stunning assortment of palms, pines, sea grass and azaleas. Every golfer can find an enjoyable challenge!

We know you have many options and believe our condo offers a perfect beach getaway. We look forward to providing you a quiet, relaxing, ocean-side home, convenient to world-class shopping, dining and recreation.

Why Carol Bryant chose Florida

Tropic Winds is the newest development on the beach, and we love its quieter location on the west end of the beach. It's an easy drive to restaurants, shopping and entertainment venues, but we like being able to escape back to less traffic and congestion.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo has one of the largest balconies on the beach .... 280 sq ft! We are able to use it as another living area, so we can enjoy all of the moods and seasons and wonders that Mother Nature provides.

We had a great week! The condo was clean and had plenty of room for two families. The whole facility is family oriented. No parties, no loud neighbors. Everything was very enjoyable. We will definitely be coming back!!

Perfect family condo

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed condo on the 7th floor just steps away from the elevator. Wonderful views of the ocean from the balcony, master bedroom and the open living/dining/kitchen areas. It's extremely nice having two beach chairs assigned to you so you never had to worry about where you were going to "land" when it was beach time. Our family of 4 adults and 4 children ages 12, 8, 5 and almost 2 year old loved our stay at this condo! Carol was wonderful to work with from day one and was always available when we needed her.

loved the condo.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything we wanted. The view was breath taken and the balcony was so spacious. The condo was equipped with all the amenities from the kitchen appliances to the bedrooms with extra pillows and blankets as well as the rest rooms with enough towels. There was even a closet filled with goodies to use at the beach, with chairs and shovels, buckets, umbrellas, boogie boards and games we certainly didn't expect to find. Over all we had an amazing enjoyable fun filled week of vacation.

VERY Clean and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend of Memorial day on for 7 nights. The parking was slim, but the HOA team helped us greatly in accomodating how to navigate that. Once the weekend passed we had ZERO issues and we were able to enjoy the BEAUTIFUL room and convient property. I would reccomend this place to anyone! Thank you so much Carol for working with us and being responsive!!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and the pleasure was mine working with you! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Yes, summer is always hectic with people arriving and getting parked, but our whole team at Tropic Winds... owners, HOA volunteers, security personnel, management.... all do our very best to help our guests have a wonderful vacation. We are pleased to know that once over that hump, everything was great for you. Mission accomplished! Thank you for being our guests. We hope you'll come back to visit again soon!

Very nice, clean and roomy.

  • 4 of 5

Close to everything. The only thing I can complain about was the parking. Not enough and not big enough. The room was really nice, clean, we had plenty of towels and kitchen utensils. Very nice stay.

Panama City Beach offers a variety of activities and adventures besides enjoying the emerald waters of the Gulf. For a unique experience, go on a dolphin tour. Panama City Beach is home to one of the largest populations of bottle nose dolphins, and on one of these tours, you'll get wonderful photo opportunities as the dolphins come right up to the boat! Adventures await when you set up other recreational water activities like banana boat rides, para-sailing, and jet skiing. For a change of pace when weather concerns (or too much sun!) have you seeking indoor activities, visit Gulf World Marine Park, Ripley's Believe it or Not, or Wonder Works. You'll recognize the latter by its upside down building!

Of course, we have all of those fun things that complete a beach vacation... miniature golf, a water park and plenty of shopping and entertainment at Pier Park, the largest retail area in Northwest Florida.
