Welcome to "Island Time"! That's what we call our adorable 2 bedroom, one bath unit in the low-rise Sand Castles West complex. Sand Castles West is directly across the street from the beautiful Emerald Coast beaches of Panama City Beach, Florida. Island time is a NON-SMOKING unit.
Back when our youngest son was a Boy Scout we accompanied him to a week-long adventure in the Florida keys called "Sea Base." It's there we were introduced to the concept of "Island Time" -- where you just live for the moment and don't worry about the clock. We've always remembered the feeling and that became the inspiration for this vacation home on the sunny Gulf coast.
We're located on the highly desirable, family friendly west side of Panama City Beach... miles away from the noise and party crowds you'll find on the east side. Sand Castles West is about 1 mile west of the fabulous Pier Park shopping resort.
Island Time is in Building G in the Sand Castles West complex (the closest building to the beach). It's about 200 steps from the corner of the stairwell to the beach access. If you prefer a dip in an immaculately maintained pool, one of our complexes two pools is just at the other end of the building.
Sand Castles West is a "low rise" complex, not a massive concrete complex with remote parking and maddening long waits for slow (and far too-few elevators). Our unit is on the second floor (just one flight of stairs up from the parking lot). You'll have a stress-free vacation with lots of amenities, shopping, and of course the gorgeous beaches literally at your fingertips.
The unit itself can comfortably sleep 6 with 2 bedrooms (each with a queen size bed) and a pull-out queen sleeper sofa in the living room. There are three flat-screen TVs (one in the living room and one in each bedroom). The kitchen is cozy but functional and well-stocked, and the entire condo is tastefully decorated and beach themed to enhance your experience!
WiFi is included so bring all your devices, and the unit has its own washer and dryer so you don't have to waste your valuable vacation time sitting at a laundromat.
We're very "budget friendly" for a 2 bedroom unit so well maintained and close to the beach, so come get away and enjoy some "Island Time"!

Nice little apartment close to the beach
Within walking distance to the beach. The kitchen was stocked just enough, but not for left-overs. Appreciated the simplicity of checkout. Wish we could have stayed one more day.
The place was nice and comfortable. Some of the dishes were dirty but we cleaned them so it wasnt that big of a deal. This was for the most part quiet. The last two days of our stay I guess someone had moved in and we could hear their every step for about an hour one night. It was convenient to walk to the beach. Overall a nice place to stay for a short weekend.
Sorry to hear you found some dirty dishes. We will talk with our cleaning crew about this.
Beautiful time for us Snowbirders
Home was comfortable for the 2 of us and convenient , short walk to the beach access across the street. Kitchen was well equipped for all our needs. Nice furniture but may I suggest a sectional sofa would be nice in the living room. The only negative was the saloon to the rear of condo ( 100 ft away ) which was noisy a couple times late at night during our stay. We stayed for 2 months. Panama City Beach has one of the best beaches in the world with emerald green and beautiful blue water. Thanks Tom and Vickie !!
It was very cozy. We had 5 adults and 2 children and made it just fine with the accommodations. The sofa bed was a little lacking but it was a sofa bed after all :) Would definitely stay again! It was right across the street from the beach and conveniently located near everything we needed.
Nice place @ a good price
Cute and clean place. Convenient to all you need for a great beach vacation. We plan on staying here again for sure.
