  • Excellent Family Getaway, Nice Condo!

    "I made a last minute booking at the Ocean Reef and was VERY happy that I did! I downloaded the VRBO app on my phone and was able to receive all communication and messages that way. The unit was nicely decorated, clean, and had two comfortable king size beds with ensuite bathrooms. The view was incredible, especially being on the 18th floor! My kids enjoyed playing at the beach, while we sat and relaxed! We brought all of our own chairs, umbrella, toys, which wasn't necessary since the condo had plenty of things to bring to the beach. We also brought a wagon, which was essential to haul things up and down. (We noticed that the drains in the shower were really slow...didn't know if it was a building issue or a condo issue.) On the 2nd day, we decided to rent the beach chairs and umbrellas (4 chairs, 2 umbrellas) which was $50...but worth it because our umbrella and tent broke due to the strong winds on the beach. The kids collected hermit crabs and seashells, avoided the HUGE jellyfish, made friends with other kids and had a great time. Originally, we were looking for a place that had a nice pool for the kids, but I can't say that I was impressed with the pool/spa at Ocean Reef. It was pretty old and small...thankfully, we spent the entire time on the beach! We were only there for the weekend so I didn't bring a whole lot of groceries, just snacks. There were several restaurants that were walking distance, the food wasn't that great...but the atmosphere was lovely and we were able to sit outside with a view of the gulf. There were plenty of shops in close driving distance (Walmart, Target, ABC, IHOP, Carrabba's, etc) We had never been to Panama City Beach before, it was very touristy and "tacky" along the strip...which is expected for a beach town. It was a little difficult to walk safely with our kids since there weren't any designated sidewalks or paths along the main road. The motel next to the condo was pretty shady. Walking past with my kids made me a little nervous. However, we were able to walk back on the beach the 2nd night...it was handy to have a flashlight on our phones! There were LOTs of families on the beach at night! Overall, we loved the condo, it was WELL worth the price (way better than a hotel/resort), the beach was excellent, and our time was relaxing! Thanks for having us! The Harris Family- Atlanta Ga"

  • Awesome long weekend!!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My son and I had an awesome time at this condo. We normally experience some glitches when traveling but not this time. Everything went smooth and the unit was exactly what we wanted. Loved the huge balcony and view! We were lucky to be able to view fireworks from the balcony Friday and Saturday nights and beautiful sunsets every night. We also enjoyed taking a helicopter ride down the beach from Panhandle Helicopter. We will definitely consider this property for our next beach trip."

  • Wonderful Vacation!!!!!

    "We just got home yesterday from the best vacation!!! I had emergency stomach surgery a few months back and had spent 4 months in the hospital. I needed this vacation!!!This trip was a relaxing one for sure! My husband, Son, his wife, 2 kids loved the spacious condo & decor! The only problem we had was a toilet problem but it was fixed fast!! We thought the 8th floor would be too high for my husband as he hates heights, but it was perfect. I would love to stay again next year! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with my family."
