About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

One of the best beach get-aways in Panama City Beach, Fl. Located on the beach and gulf front on the majestic Gulf Of Mexico. Welcome to "Sandpiper" this 1 bedroom, 2 bath deluxe type B floor plan has the feel of being in your own private cottage. Ceiling to floor glass across the living room and bedroom. Bedroom is located gulf front and the sound of the crashing waves is so relaxing. The Windward Building in Edgewater is closer to the water than most condos – a shorter walk to get at the sand and surf. Wonderful for a family of 4 or just the two of you!! Comfortably sleeps up to 6, in a king-sized bed, set of bunk beds, and a queen sleeper sofa.

The living/family room which features a mirrored wall opens onto the balcony and there is also a sliding glass door that opens from the bedroom onto the balcony. W404 has a fully equipped kitchen with dining area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) absolutely loved this unit. It was roomy, clean, quiet, lovely and had all the essentials of home. It is the closest to the beach at Edgewater and less crowded but the teens also enjoyed that it was within a short walking distance of the excitement and big lagoon pool. My husband and I enjoyed the pool at the Windward building it was less crowded and we even had it all to ourselves on occasion. Some of the comments from visitors will lead you to believe beach chairs are included with this rental but they are not. I went ahead and rented chairs on the beach for 5 days at a discounted rate of $130. When you first walk in this unit it will blow you away with the ceiling to floor windows and breathtaking views of the gulf. We will definitely book this rental again. It is our most favorite in Panama City now.

Nice Condo but Poorly Managed

  • 3 of 5

The condo and property was fine. Everything is as advertised. Problem #1: You have to pick up your parking permit 2.5 miles away from the resort. I may have been able to overlook this inconvenience but it was not available as promised. We were told it would be in a lockbox located on the wall outside the office door. The code to unlock the box was provided but not needed because the permits were sticking out of the top of the lockbox. Unfortunately ours was not one of them. The lockbox was not locked. GREAT SECURITY! I called the after hours phone number and we had to wait for somebody to come to the office to give us a permit. He actually blamed it on another quest. He said somebody else must have taken it. No apology given. I emailed the property manager. She apologized for the permit issues but never addressed why my permit and other guest permits were available for anybody to take. I asked why they could not hand out parking permits at the security gate. I was told Edgewater does not allow this. Problem #2: The condo door uses a key code instead of a key lock. You are provided a code to enter and you are able to change it to a more user friendly code if you wish. We were scheduled to check out by 10am on 10/13/17. My wife and I started loading the car 6:15am. When we returned to the condo our door code no longer worked. We were locked out. Our phones, ID's, money, etc were in the condo. Our kids were sound asleep. My wife went down to the security gate for help. They said they could not because it was a owner unit. They could only help if it was a Edgewater property, They said we would have to call the property management company. After about 15 minutes of banging on the door my son finally heard me. We called Emerald Beach Property Inc after they opened. We were disappointed but not surprised by their response. After we explained being locked out the only thing they said was "OK". Again, no apologies. We are fairly sure this was the same person who gave us our parking permit. We were pleased with the condo and the property itself but not with how it is managed. If we decide to stay at Edgewater again we will rent from Edgewater. We will not rent a owner unit nor will we rent a property managed by Emerald Beach Property Inc.

It was good!

  • 4 of 5

The only complaints would be the sliding glass door from the living room to the balcony wouldn't slide. We had to use the bedroom door for accessibility to the balcony. And the tub drains didn't drain very well. Otherwise it was good for all of our needs, thanks

Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

The unit is located in Winward which is at the far end and more private. It shares a pool with Leeward and only a short walk to main pool and Oceans Restaurant. The cleaning on the unit was maybe a B- or C+ as we found, sand, dust, dirty mirrors, empty bottle under bed, etc-few misc details that should have been handled. Everything worked except the surround sound which wasn't even hooked up-why not remove it ? There were plenty of towels, etc but no beach items. It would be very nice for that much money to have rental chairs included. We really like Edgewater and for an older facility it has been well maintained.

Clean, good location, easy check in/out, beach views

  • 5 of 5

Great room off from the "main" building - which made it less crowded at the beach in front of our hotel. Wifi never worked but other than that everything was great! My kids loved the closet bunks! We spent a lot of time on the balcony which was beach front. Being on the 4th floor made it easy to take our stuff to and from the beach/car. There was no early check in as they use a timed lock to get in the room, the combination lock was much better than a card tho. The week before the 4th of July made area restaurants, Walmart and driving around very congested. Also, hard to find delivery in the area after 11 pm.

Owner's Response: Glad your family enjoyed our condo! It really is the perfect place for a family getaway! The timed locks are the best way we know to provide security for our guests. During the busy summer season, it's difficult to offer early check in because we are booked back to back and we have to give the cleaners time to do a good job before each guest checks in. We hope to see you again very soon. Thanks for staying with us.
