4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Condo On the Beach

Ocean Ritz 1601 is a beautifully appointed luxury beachfront condo with 1637 square feet. The condo is ideal for a large family and for extended multi-generational family groups. To rent this property, the primary renter must be over 25 years old and be present during the entire stay. We apologize that we are unable to accommodate college or high school spring break/graduation groups. For very large families, we can use our Condo Association to secure another unit in the building, often on the same floor.

Ocean Ritz 1601 is located on the 16th Floor at the east end of the building. There are only 3 condos per floor so there is little elevator and pedestrian traffic to disturb your peaceful vacation. We are one of the few units in the building to supply free armbands and parking passes for both an Ocean Ritz reserved space and the PCB city parking areas.

Unlike many of the corporate managed units in PCB equipped strictly as rentals, we have furnished our four bedroom and four bath condo in the way our family enjoys a beach vacation getaway. The unit features unique, cozy, and comfortable beach themed furnishings, including recliners for 5 (plus additional seating) in the living room. The condo is freshly painted with a tile floor and area rugs in each room. It is well-maintained and very clean. There are comfortable beds for eight (8) people plus a pull out double sofa bed and 2 high-end electrically inflatable twin air mattresses. Guests are limited to 8 adults plus children.

All bedrooms and the living room are complete with flatscreen TVs and ceiling fans that help you cool off during those hot summer days. Each bedroom also has an additional portable fan. The entertainment center in the living room has an electric fireplace to warm up winter vacationers after a trip to our year round heated hot tub. The fireplace may also be used without heat in the summer for great ambiance in the evenings.

The upgraded kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops and is completely equipped with good quality dishes and silverware for 12, cooking utensils, coffee maker, toaster, electric mixer, blender, indoor grill, electric skillet, crock pot, and storage ware. Stainless steel cookware and bake-ware are provided. A full size washer and dryer are located in the Sea Horse bathroom.

All four clean and attractive bathrooms have a private entrance from a bedroom and include solid surface counters, combination bathtub/showers, and a wall mounted hair dryer. The bathroom in the Sea Star Grand Master Bedroom has double sinks and a jetted tub. Color-coordinated towels and other decorative accessories provide the finishing touches! There is also great water pressure and plenty of hot water to wash off the Gulf of Mexico at the end of the day. The beds are all made with high thread count color-coordinated 100% cotton sheets and plush blankets.

The very large balcony stretches outside the length of the condo with sliding door access from the living room and both master bedrooms. It features comfortable patio furniture and an outdoor dining table with a granite top that seats 8. All will enjoy watching the dolphins, pelicans, sea gulls, sting rays, and people in the Gulf and on the beach below. In summer, there is a daily parade of helicopters, boats, para sails, and airplanes, not to mention breathtaking fireworks displays on special occasions.

For your trips to the beach, we provide 6 beach chairs, 2 beach umbrellas, beach towels, and assorted sand toys. (These items cannot be left on the beach overnight, so please return them to the condo each evening.) Whether you drive or fly to the area, having these items to use during the week, rather than bringing or purchasing them, can save you a great deal of hassle and money.

On rainy days or when relaxing at night use the free WIFI or enjoy watching any of the 5 flatscreen Smart TVs. The living room and Sea Gull bedroom TVs each have a blue ray player attached. We also provide a small collection of DVDs, paperback books, and a couple board games for your enjoyment.

With our owner managed unit there is no need to stop at a front desk. An Ocean Ritz armband for each guest and 1 Ocean Ritz parking pass are included in the rent. We also provide one city parking pass to use during the stay. It allows free parking at all city operated parking lots. This pass MUST be left in the condo at checkout, or $250 will be deducted from your security deposit as that is the cost to replace the annual city parking pass.

We strive to make your stay a happy one! The memories will last forever and we want them to be great for you and your family. We want to work with you to provide your best condo stay ever!

About Stan & Jean Graves

Stan grew up on a farm in Iowa and Jean in the Dallas area. They met when Stan's Army career took him to Texas. Forty five + years and 17 moves later, they ended up in southern Alabama, about 2 hours north of the condo. Stan was an Army aviator and Jean spent her career as a nurse and a nurse educator. They are the proud parents of 3 adult married children and 6 grandchildren. Almost retired now, they enjoy traveling and the beach.

Stan & Jean Graves purchased this Condo in 2015

Why Stan & Jean Graves chose Panama City Beach

On day trips to the beach, Jean always picked up the free real estate magazines. She loves having a private bathroom and wants the same for her guests. She credits destiny in seeing an ad for a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom condo on the beach. Purchasing it was also an enticement for the kids to bring the grandkids to visit more often. The condo is large enough for the entire family to be together, yet everyone still has space and privacy.

What makes this Condo unique

Beach front, a very large balcony, and 4 bedrooms, each with a private bath. It is a perfect setting for wonderful year-round memories. The tans you get may fade but the memories you make will last forever. It just doesn't get much better than this. We would love to have your family make lasting memories also.

                                                                  Latest reviews

                                                                  Great condo and host(ess).

                                                                  michael a.

                                                                  Condo was great and the owners provided alot. However, they tore out the floor above us and we had to listen to a jackhammer for the entire week. That is not the condo owner's fault but it would have been nice to know before we got there. Surprisingly, being on the 16th floor was not the hassle I thought it would be. Wiating time was minimal and both elevators worked fine.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Michael, we sincerely apologize for the noise you had to endure during your stay. Unfortunately, the owners doing the renovation did not let anyone know of their plans. We had no idea what went on until we read your review. We are happy you found the condo to be great, that you enjoyed the extras, and that the elevators were no problem. Again, we apologize for the terrible noise and regret that you had to put up with it.

                                                                  We will definitely rent this place again for our family vacation!

                                                                  Patricia P.Michigan

                                                                  The view from the balcony was absolutely gorgeous! Our children and grandchildren could not believe it! The condominium was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Almost everything you need for a stay was provided. The use of a washer and dryer was a plus! Beach chairs and sand toys were a hit with the kids. The beds and furniture were very comfortable. Stan and Jean Graves were wonderful hosts and went above and beyond to accommodate our changed arrival and departure dates. I highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone thinking about visiting Panama City Beach! We are grateful we had this beautiful and spacious condo in which to spend time with our family. It is one that will be remembered for many years!

For the 2018 season, we will provide one parking place under the building, and two free passes for parking in the city parking lot, a very short walk away. The city lot offers spaces for larger vehicles. So our guests will be able to park 3 vehicles at no cost during their stays.
