Sterling Reef 1203 12011 Front Beach Road unit 1203, Panama City Beach, FL 32407

Experience tranquility by the sea in this lovely two-bedroom, two-bathroom Panama City Beach vacation rental in the gulf-front resort community of Sterling Reef. Amazing amenities like a community pool, and spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico coastline make this condo a destination unto itself for up to six lucky guests!

The home’s inclusion in the Sterling Reef resort community means you won’t have to go far to find all the luxuries you desire for your beach getaway, including a pool, fitness center, beach access, and more. Giant slides, tropical pools, and other watery fun at Shipwreck Island Waterpark is just a half-mile walk from the building and will undoubtedly be a hit with your kids or a group of friends. Eclectic shopping, world-famous nightlife, and laid-back dining are also just minutes away in downtown, or up Front Beach Road.

The condo is a study in elegance balanced with coastal character. Maritime decor, warm tones, and tropical-themed art adorn the walls and tabletops, while stylish furnishings such as upholstered chairs, glass-top tables, and granite counters dominate the interior.

The living room is an entertainment oasis with a comfy couch and chair, a cable-equipped flatscreen television, stereo and CD player, and a DVD player for those days when a thunderstorm makes it best to stay indoors and catch up on your favorite television series. Sliding glass doors attached to the living room open up to reveal the main draw of this condo’s location: gorgeous views of the cerulean-blue-meets-emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Stunning pink sunsets are also well-observed from this spacious outdoor balcony, which also features a table and dining space for four. So go ahead and bring dinner and a fine glass of wine onto the balcony to enjoy a legendary Florida sunset.

The chef in your group will have no problems cooking a fabulous seafood dinner in the well-stocked kitchen, which is attached to the living room. Modern appliances like a microwave, oven, stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher take the work out of meal preparation and cleanup. And after the meal is ready, enjoy dining with your group at either the kitchen island with room for three or out on the balcony.

Down a hallway sit two rooms with space for up to six guests. The master bedroom contains a king-size bed in a beautiful mahogany sleigh frame, and the other room contains a queen-size in an equally beautiful wicker frame. Both rooms incorporate simple but stylish furnishings such as nightstands, dressers, and reading lamps.

Come home after a full day of playing in the sun to relax and enjoy a restful slumber in either of these rooms. And if extra sleeping space is needed, a sofabed in the living room can be utilized.

Do you need to check your email? No worries, WiFi is provided. Need to do some laundry? A washer/dryer is provided.

Work on your beach body at the building’s fitness center, or swim laps in the bi-level pool, which is heated seasonally. Watersport rentals are available on the beach.

Your group will love the miles of beautiful white sand beach that sit just beyond the Sterling Reef’s ground floor. They’ll also love the grilling area on the building’s third level terrace - perfect for cooking up your fresh catch-of-the-day! And speaking of the catch-of-the-day, Bay County Fishing Pier is an easy walk from the building and is a great spot to drop a fishing line and pull up redfish, cobia, grouper, and other native species.

If getting out in nature is desired, activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, canoeing, and nature trail hiking get you up close and personal with native birds, reptiles, and fish at Saint Andrews State Park, a federally protected area with 1200 acres of pristine coastal habitat, located just seven miles south.

Whether you’ve come for beachside relaxation or entertainment in the city, this Florida vacation rental is ready to set the stage for the best coastal getaway you’ve ever had!

    My family and I had a wonderful time staying at The Sterling Reef resort. My boys loved the pool and the beach access. The beach was so beautiful and the water was wonderful.

    We came to PCB for a surprise beach weekend for my husband's 50th birthday. The unit was much larger than we expected (especially for the price) and was very clean and well decorated. The beach access was excellent. We could make it from our room to our toes being in the water in less than 5 minutes. The condo was within a couple of blocks of everywhere we wanted to go. It's far enough away from Pier Park that you don't get mixed in with all the traffic, but close enough to be there in a few minutes, especially when you bypass Front Beach Road and go in through the back side. We had an amazing time and definitely plan on coming back again!

    After the unexpected loss of our son one day and our daughter and family losing their home in an unexpected flood the day before our sons passing. It became clear to us that we needed to get away. A break from the horrible sadness that rained on us. My brother and his wife own a condo here at Sterling Reef. They invited us for a stay/visit with them. However, we elected to rent our own condo just to give everyone space. This was exactly what we needed. Another reason for this trip was to look at the RV Campgrounds, which we did. We found a couple of very nice parks to pull our camper in for a month or two. After this stay, the camper (which we love) will stay in Pennsylvania and we will rent this condo again. So...God has provided us with calmness and a new adventure in condo life. Mission accomplished, thank you.

    Great location, good amenties and spacious rooms however I was given the wrong code so I was unable to check in at 4 which is the usual check in. Did not get in the unit until 10 minutes later. Was very disappointed because I expected to be able to check in by 4 since I have 3 young children. 4/5 stars

    The minor maintenance issues are exactly that- minor. The location is great in that you're not "at" Pier Park, but very close. Shipwreck water park is literally across the street & up 1 block (perfect for kids!). There is a H U G E gift store directly across the street (3 floors). Harpoon Harrys is only 3 blocks away. Major groceries are exactly 1.2 miles up the road (Publix). The beach was clean & well maintained. There are beach chair & jet ski rentals directly below the condo. It was crazy for us because the jazz fest was in full effect which brought in a lot of undesirable guests who did absolutely nothing but rent scooters & drive up/down front beach rd all day doing everything possible to gain attention, but as our taxi driver said, "scooters are banned in 2017." ;-) Can't go wrong with this condo, price & location are top notch! The patio makes for very relaxing nights once settling in.

    The condo looks just like the photos. It is a very nice but small two bedroom condo. It was very nice and made you feel right at home. I would stay in this resort and condo and would recommend it to anyone.
