We purchased this spacious Panama City Beach vacation condo a few years back so that we could have tropical escape to enjoy with our family and friends. We selected Unit 1103 due to its spacious design, high ceilings, large balcony, incredible views of the gulf as well as the heated lagoon pool. Our condo is a two bedroom, two bath, fully tiled beach residence that sleeps up to 8 comfortably. One thing you’ll notice right away is the large balcony accessible from the main living space and master bedroom providing spactacular views of the world’s most beautiful beaches. To start each morning we enjoy drinking our coffee on the balcony while watching the dolphins or sting rays playing in the gulf and end our evenings with the fantastic sunsets. We spend lots of time here ourselves, and we maintain the condo is decorated for maximum comfort and style. We upgraded all appliances to stainless, installed new cabinets, sinks and faucets throughout. We invite you the opportunity to enjoy some of the other unique features of this wonderful beach environment:


-Electronic lock so no keys to worry about

-Carefree check-in so you can go right to this residence once you’re in town

-1500 Square Feet of Living Space on the 11th floor

We enjoy all things surf and sand; boating, fishing, swimming, jet skiing and more!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! From the ease of booking until the time we walked out the door of our unit to return home, we had a fabulous experience. From the moment we walked in the condo, it felt like "home". We have traveled to PCB an average of twice a year for the last 25 years, and I can honestly say this was our favorite condo by far. Not only was the unit itself just perfect from the design to the layout of the unit, but the ease of navigating the property was a big selling point for us as well. There was separate access to the beach and the pool so we didn't have tons of beach traffic rolling by us at the pool while we were trying to relax. Also, there was a wonderful area to grill and picnic outside. We were even impressed with the security guard! We met him in the parking lot in the evenings as he was patrolling and checking cars. He was also at the pool making sure those who were there were supposed to be there. I know those sound like small things, but we've stayed places that we just couldn't enjoy the beach or pool for very rowdy guests that made it impossible to ignore them.

Now, let's talk about Jen. I have never rented a condo where the owner was so invested in us having a good time and enjoying our stay. Jen texted us the day we were to arrive to make sure we arrived safely. She also checked in on us several times during our stay just to make sure all was ok. She immediately made you feel she truly wanted you to have a good time and enjoy all her home and the city had to offer. I would not have hesitated to have texted her if I had a question about the property or even to ask about her opinion on a restaurant.

We are planning on going back in the fall and will DEFINITELY be staying at Sterling Beach #1103!!

Comfortable, beautiful and clean

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic. We were right on the beach with beautiful views. The owner, Jen, was so responsive and helpful. She even recommended an event for us to go see! We vacationed with our family here and I highly recommend it for all ages! My daughter and husband fully utilized the beach toys that were at the condo. Great for sand castle building. This place is perfect!

Perfect relaxing & fun vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully renovated condominium in a quite yet super fun location, close to many restaurants & shops. Jen was super easy to rent from & very accomodating. We really enjoyed watching the boats out in the water fishing. My family will definitely be back for another relaxing vacation.

Located in a complex with fewer than 100 units our end of the beach stays a bit less crowded than others. We are still close to plenty of tourist attractions such as WonderWorks, Ripley's Believe it or Not and Gulf World Marien Park.
