Beachfront views, pools, hot tub in a resort community - snowbirds welcome!
Beachside comfort in a lavish resort community is what you get with this one-bedroom, two-bathroom Panama City Beach vacation rental. Great features like beach access, two community pools, and spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico coastline are ready to welcome your group of up to six lucky vacationers!
The condo is located on the 11th floor of the Emerald Beach Resort, and its inclusion in this resort means you’ll have access to first-class luxuries in a beautiful beachfront location. Pump some iron in the building’s fitness center, then reward yourself with a cold frappuccino from the Starbucks in the lobby or with an umbrella drink from the Sky Bar lounge. You can also find two community pools on premises, a shared hot tub, a nearby 27-hole golf course, and quick access to watersports like kayaking, paddle boarding, and sailing on the Gulf.
With potted tropical plants, light and breezy tones, and coastal decor adorning the walls and tabletops, this home broadcasts a distinct beachside character. The living room is an entertainment oasis with a cable-equipped television that also has a DVD player and DVD library for use on stormy days. With its two comfy couches and elegant wood tables, the living room is also a haven for relaxation.
Attached to the living room is a set of sliding glass doors that open to reveal a balcony with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico coastline. Sit at the glass-top table on the balcony to enjoy a beautiful pink sunset, or make this your morning quiet spot as you sip coffee and read the local newspaper.
Back inside and on the other side of the living room sits a well-stocked kitchen. Modern appliances - a dishwasher, microwave, oven, stove, and more - make it easy to prepare a fantastic seafood feast for your whole group with quick cleanup afterwards. There’s also plenty of counter space to lay out all your ingredients.
And after that meal is ready, sit down with your group on three chairs at the counter or head outside to the balcony where there’s room for two more.
Up to six people can sleep comfortably in this home. Down a hallway sits a nook with twin beds and one bedroom with sleeping space for two (plus, a sofabed in the living room adds sleeping space for two more). The one bedroom contains a plush king-size bed in a beautiful white wooden frame, and matching white wood nightstands on each side of the bed, reading lamps, and a dresser. This room will surely be a place of restful slumber after a long day spent playing or relaxing in the glorious Florida sun.
Don’t worry if you have Internet-based work to do while you’re here - WiFi is provided. So go ahead and check your email!
Also don’t worry about running out of entertainment options because Panama City boasts amusement parks, legendary nightlife, great dining, and eclectic shopping. Kids will love the fun and strange exhibits at Ripley’s Believe It or Not Odditorium, which is a quick four-mile drive down Front Beach Road.
Another sure bet for family fun is one mile up the road at Miracle Strip at Pier Park amusement park, where both kids and adults will love zooming down slides, riding on carousels, and zipping around on rollercoasters. Tropical bars and restaurants that sit on the beach, like Salty’s Beach Bar and Donovan’s Reef, will appeal to more adult tastes.
Of course, the main draw of the area is its beautiful white sand beaches and unparalleled natural beauty - and you’ll get front door access to it all in this condo! Go two miles north or south to drop a fishing line into the aquamarine waters off of either Russell-Fields or M.B. Miller piers, which both reach far out into the Gulf of Mexico. Or admire the lush vegetation and abundant wildlife at Saint Andrews State Park, which is just nine miles south.
So bring your sense of adventure and a willingness to dive into a variety of activities when you book a stay in this beautiful Florida vacation rental!

We loved how much room there was for everyone we had 4 and a baby and it was perfect. Everything was easy to find minus the sand it was fantastic and the property owner communicated well when we had any questions.
This condo was a prefect match for me and my children. We had plenty of room to spread out and the view was stunning. The entire process was so simple and Vacasa made it stress free. The resort has several family friendly options and the heated pool made my little one's days so much nicer!
We are looking forward to our next stay at Emerald Beach Resort!
I loved the view from the condo. It was close to Pier Park. The Skybar. The strip mall next door with the Steamer and Mexican food. Salvador’s. Lots of things to love.
The view is phenomanol. The beach is awesome. The Skybar and the hotel has lots of activities. Puzzle table is nice if you want to slow down for a minute. It’s close to Pier Park and lots of restaurants and shopping. The ice cream shop and snack bar is handy and you can’t beat the food at the little strip mall next door. Seafood at Steamers is awesome. 🏖
The place itself could use a few updates but the view makes it all worthwhile.
I loved the view, the Skybar, the puzzle table and the new friends I made. Fun place to stay. Close to Pier Park And lots of other restaurants and businesses.
We found the condo in good shape, and everything was as Vacasa explained. One thing that was annoying: the elevators were tied up during the day with cleaning carts, and laundry carts. Not all elevators were available. Don't know if the cleaning crew locked some of the elevators for their use.
The view, the layout of the condo!
Loved the view we had and very clean room
Great time beautiful ocean view 🌊will return..very thing in close walking distance staff very friendly and helpful🌟👍
The room had sand everywhere including in the beds and on the sofas. We were told we couldn’t check in early because the cleaning staff had to have adequate time to clean. The shower curtains had black mold or mildew all over them and there was a black mold spot on the wall. I have photos to verify. I do not recommend this place. Very upset I spent my money here and stayed.
We are sorry to see housekeeping missed a few things and wish this guest had called so we could rectify the matter. We did notice the mildew after this guest's departure and wiped it down. Mildew is very common in this humid area and builds up quickly; we do our best to stay on top of it and are always happy to assist guests with the matter if mildew appears during their visit. The shower curtain has been replaced. Thank you!
The condo was beautiful and clean. Everything we needed was there. The only thing that was inconvenient was the multiple elevators you had to take from the Parking garage to the rooms.
We loved the location. It was very well-kept. It was nicely decorated. The condo had everything we needed.
The view was beautiful and there was easy access to the beach. Everything including laundry detergent, fabric softener, dish soap, and paper towels was provided. The Skybar is family friendly with drinks for adults and ice cream for the kids.
It was close to all the vendors .had a great stay!!!
This home has a breath-taking view. Very nice and clean also has everything you need for your stay I will use this again.
The condo was nice, with beautiful view of the ocean. The weather was great. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
would stay here again.
This was a great place to stay. This room has an amazing view. It's very spacious and lots of storage in the kitchen for your food. The resort was great and is very family friendly. We will keep this on our list of must stay places.
Good place in a great location. Close to Pier Park and many restaurants. The property is clean and secure.
Not very clean but besides that a very nice place.
We apologize if cleanliness was not up to this guest's expectations and wish they had notified us so we could have rectified the matter. We have very high cleanliness standards and work hard with housekeeping to ensure they are met. Thank you!
The property was clean with a nice view! Recommended.
It is a shame to spend hard earned money for a stay in a place that could be very nice but the neglect to the property is so overwhelming. Anyone with any maintenance ability could have this property in tiptop shape in a half day or so. Whoever owns this property should find a new maintenance and housekeeping staff since they are obviously subpar.
After this reservation we received a list of maintenance suggestions from this guest, and all items on the list have been completed. Thank you!
We enjoyed our trip to Emerald Beach and were very pleased with our condo.
Wonderful family friendly place to stay. Only complaint would be the elevator wait time. Can't wait to stay again.
We booked this condo extremely last minute, within 30 minutes of arriving, which was great. It came with free covered garage parking. The place was great for what we needed. AMAZING views that pictures cannot do justice. There were a few minor things, such as a broken bathtub drain cover and missing a few things in the kitchen. But nothing we couldn't live without. Would definitely stay here again on our next trip.
We picked the ideal place to relax and enjoy the scenic ocean view. Great places to eat. Everything right at your fingertips.
The condo was dark, only lamps in the bedroom and living room. The ceiling in the bathroom was dangerously sagging, the mattress (or lack there of) on the pull out sofa was basically springs. The room smelled like rotten fish.
There is a ceiling light in the living room along with lamps, and the bathroom ceiling is made of 2x2 square foot drop ceiling tiles that look to be holding up as they should. The Property Manager will inspect the sleeper sofa mattress as we have not had any prior complaints about it, and he will investigate for any unpleasant odors in the unit as well. Thank you!
The location of the condo is perfect! Right in the center of all the activities in PCB. The condo has a lot of amenities (Starbucks, beach chairs to rent, parasail/banana boat booth, ice cream shop, etc). The pool was very nice and clean. The only complaint we had was that the air was set to cut off and would be 76 degrees throughout the day and night so we would get pretty warm. Would've liked to be able to come inside to cool off and not burn up.
Vacasa does not have a hands on approach with the upkeep or cleanliness of the condos they rent. They are great with the computer/telephone aspects of customer care but have no clue when it comes to the actual rental property. Be prepared to do some housework when you arrive and overlook the signs or property misuse and neglect and you will be thrilled.....otherwise rent from an independent owner!
We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed and will follow up with housekeeping.
Very much enjoyed our stay! The staff was very pleasant and helped with whatever we needed! The view was beautiful and the beach was so close.
I'm glad we went beach front was amazing
My husband and I loved it :)
Great location, everything you need is provided. Very clean and comfortable. Views couldn't be better!
The most pleasurable experience we've had at PCB. No checkin required because everything was completed ahead of time. Extremely clean. No issues what so ever. We will be back.
Emerald Beach resort is awesome
This rental was in the perfect spot. Very close to the state parks and many restaurants. The place was nicely decorated and we were pleased with the extras (soap, shampoo, beach towels, etc.) that were supplied. The building that the rental is in was clean and the people were very polite.
Our only disappointment was that one of the chairs on the balcony was broken so we could not sit together at the table to enjoy our coffee and stare at the ocean in the morning.
Nicely decorated, and very clean. Loved the balcony overlooking the Gulf.... perfect little getaway.
this condo was wonderful and spacious, clean and beautiful the staff was so very kind and helpful, came out to our car loaded our bags and took them o our room . Pools on both sides , store and coffee shop and bars so very nice will definitely go back sooner than later
Very nice property. Had a starbucks and a shop in it. Chairs were available to rent and had stand to parasail and banana boat on the property. The condo was nice. Plenty of room for 4 people. Might be bit crowded for 6. The kitchen was stocked with every appliance you might need on your stay. Daily housekeeping wasn't included which was a bummer because sand, towels, and trash piled up. If big group, recommend getting trash bags at store because they didn't have any extras in the unit. Overall, it was a relaxing time!
Unit was very nice, just a few minor things that can be changed for a better experience.
This is my first time booking with Vacasa. My husband I came to the beach to celebrate my Birthday and had a great stay. The Condo was nice and clean, the bed comfortable. The only drawback was a chair that was ripped at the table on the balcony but I called the manager about it when we noticed it and hopefully that will be dealt with quickly for the next renters. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this condo.
Love the condo! Nice! Plenty of room for four people! Was clean!
We just returned from our PCB vacation. I couldn't be happier with our stay at Emerald Beach. The condo is very comfortable and spacious. We have a family of six: myself, husband, three 14 yr olds and an 11 year old, so this unit fit our budget while still providing us enough space. We did pack a queen air mattress for the trip for the additional sleeping. My son said the pull out sofa was nice and comfy. The master bedroom is nice with a comfy bed and the bathroom has a large garden tub (which I enjoyed very much after a long day on the beach). The kitchen offers the basics. I would suggest checking the pots and pans before planning meals if you're eating in. Also make sure to pack tin foil, plastic wrap, and ziploc bags. Loved having the washer and dryer, it works great. And everyone's favorite... the balcony. I enjoyed my morning coffee watchng the waves come in. When we were in the unit, someone was always on the balcony. The location is great. I was even comfortable with the kids walking the beach and the resort without us as long as they stayed together. There is a miniature golf and go kart place within walking distance. Pier Park is a very short drive away, which offers quite a few shops and places to eat. I am very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend to others!
We had a very nice vacations with the family easy acces to parking lot ,clean rooms and very friendly peoples there thanks for every thing and we will back on the next vacations ????????????
We enjoyed our stay. Cannot wait until our next vacation!!!
Me and wife had great time, good location and enjoyed ourselves. Had no problems with place, but the drain in master bath was draining slow prolly only from sand, and one of the chairs on balcony needs replaced because someone before us set down hard and its ripping. Other than that great place and I would stay again.
We will be back soon and hopefully stay in the same room next time.
Great location and great room! Would definitely recommend
Our condo was gorgeous ! The entire resort was clean and the staff were very friendly. We plan to stay here every year !
For the rate/room/VIEW/dining/ALL THE ABOVE I would rate this place a 10 out of 10. Very clean, very well kept. WE WILL BE BACK ASAP!
I booked this at the last min. For the price we paid and the location it was perfect! It didn't break our budget and it was a really nice condo for our family. We will be coming back!
We enjoyed the location and the room was clean and had everything you could possibly need to cook with. Would have appreciated better service from Vasca
We regret to see that you were not more impressed with our services. We are currently hiring more employees for the phones and in the fields in order to be more attentive to our guests' needs.
Comfortable, nice, with updated decor. Loved the washer dryer in unit. Bed VERY comfy. Balcony views were amazing!!!! Could use a deep clean,but overall wonderful! Thanks for sharing your home. We will return.
We had an awesome time....looking forward to next year!!
It was a very nice condo.. Emerald Beach is a great place to stay. Just need a new door lock.
Thank you for your review. The Property Manager will inspect the door lock and replace it if necessary. We hope to see you again!
We were very pleased with the condo. Just had a problem with noise from bikers and with red tide.
I have to admit I was a little nervous when I arrived due to some of the previous reviews. I had trouble getting into my room due to the owner changing the door code and not informing me but once I called Vacasa they immediately contacted them and called me back within 3 minutes!! Once I got inside the room was extremely nice and clean. The room and hotel definitely exceeded my expectations! I would definitely recommend this room if you looking to stay somewhere nice with a perfect view!
