Water lovers take note - this gorgeous one-bedroom Panama City Beach vacation rental in the resort community of Laketown Wharf is ready to be your home base for adventures! Great amenities like five pools, a lakefront boardwalk, a fitness center, and quick access to the beach welcome your group of up to six people!
The location is one-of-a-kind: Just beyond the resort’s doors sits a beautiful, sprawling lake - plus you’ll only have to walk across the street to the sugar-sand beach! Spend the morning exploring the community, then head over to the beach and work on your tan in the afternoon.
With beautifully stained cabinets, elegant furniture, and tropical accents, this condo is a high-class coastal retreat. Sit on comfy microfiber couches to watch a DVD or cable television on the living room’s flatscreen TV. Read a book outside on the balcony and admire the views of the Emerald Coast in the distance, or use the free WiFi to share your favorite getaway photos with friends from home.
When it’s time to eat, go ahead and whip up a fantastic feast in the well-equipped kitchen. Serve hors d'oeuvre on the beautiful granite-top island or lay out your ingredients for fish tacos while you cook - there’s plenty of space for it all! And modern appliances, such as a stove, oven, microwave, and dishwasher, make meal preparation quick and easy!
Enjoy great food and conversation with your group at the dining table, which seats six. You can also take your meal onto the balcony where there’s seating to watch Florida’s legendary pink sunsets over the Gulf.
After a full day of playing in the ocean, you’ll be ready to retire home to get a good night’s rest so that you can get up and do it all over again! Find restful slumber in the condo's bedroom, boasting a king-size bed. There's also a twin bunk bed in the hallway nook, plus a sofabed in the living room, so this home can accommodate up to six people.
You can pump some iron or run on a treadmill in the on-site fitness center, or swim laps in any of the five lovely pools on premises. Then relax and replenish your muscles in one of the community’s several hot tubs.
Perfect your golf swing on the resort's rooftop putting green, then meet friends to have happy hour drinks in the Splash Bar. At dusk, walk hand-in-hand with a loved one along the resort’s colorfully lit boardwalk where you’ll both admire the regal fountains in the lake and the swaying palm trees that dot its perimeter.
Great food, drink, and nightlife are also nearby on Front Beach Road. So when the sun goes down, cut loose at places like Coyote Ugly, Sweet Dreams, and the Salty Goat Saloon! If wild nights don’t appeal to you but wild scenery does, you’ll certainly want to visit Saint Andrews State Park, which is just five miles east and contains 1,200 acres of pristine coastal salt marsh that are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, and canoeing.
Whether you’ve come for the abundant activities afforded by this coastal destination, or for catching up on rest and relaxation in a lavish resort community, this gulf-view Florida vacation rental is ready to set the stage for the best beach getaway you’ve ever had!

We loved the unit we were in. It had a awesome view and family friendly atmosphere as well. We would love to stay in this unit again. The unit was clean and tidy as well. We could not ask for a better place to stay even though it was raining. Thank you again.

We enjoyed our stay at Laketown Wharf in Unit #1118. The people-mostly guards at the gate, as that seemed to be all that were working, were very nice and helpful! The condo had everything we needed and a great view of the Gulf! It is within walking distance of many restaurants, shopping, etc. The nightly light show on the lake was well worth attending. The only negative that I can think of was there were no carts available and for us older people was a bit more than an inconvenience. I know this was a COVID thing, but not knowing this in advance was not a good thing. It took us many trips to get all our stuff up to floor 11! We would definitely recommend this place.
Barry, thank you so much for your feedback and we are so pleased you enjoyed our property! We are sorry to hear about the luggage carts not being available and how this affected your experience. Unfortunately, due to COVID, the building has pulled all luggage carts as a safety measure. We hope to host you again in the future!
Barry M.Oct 2020
Convenient to everything . The condo was really nice.
Donna A.Sep 2020
Everything was nice except for the shower filled the tub up while you were taking a shower. I don't know if it was stopped up or what but the water was not draining out.
Hi, Donna! We are so glad you stayed with us and let us know about your experience. We have had maintenance check the drain to ensure it is draining properly; please note it will drain a little slower due to being such a large complex. Thank you!
Cory C.Aug 2020
Great view of beach and great location
Rick S.Jul 2020
Laketown wharf is are go to destination when staying in Panama City and this condo did not disappoint.
Rachel C.Jun 2020
I loved the layout, use of space, and decor of this unit. It had all needed utensils etc. I purchased a non-stick pan and left for future use as that was missing.
We truly enjoyed this unit!!
**My only word of warning to future guests has nothing to do with the unit specifically, but rather the resort**
THE ELEVATORS!! This resort has a huge problem with the lack of elevators, and the waits to switch elevators to get to the parking deck- getting to your car from the 11th floor is like some sort of game of strategy, especially on arrival and departure. We figured out that if you park on the top deck, you only have to walk 1 flight of stairs to go across the pool area and down a short flight- but beware, only of the pool is open. Otherwise park on level 6 and go from there. It’s the last chance you will have for a crosswalk until the parking deck/pool area.
Vacasa was a great rental agency, and we will use again!!
Brad A.May 2020
Everything was perfect.. the view was awesome and the we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back
Cary B.Mar 2020

JOSE G.Nov 2019
Rented this lovely unit for a short stay while in town on business. Very nice place, would definitely stay again.
Tom R.Nov 2019
Spacious room, decent ocean view but somewhat obstructed by another high-rise. Good service
roger b.Oct 2019
Another great Thunder beach motorcycle rally.Sadly still some property's have remaining damage from Hurricane Micheal but nothing missing here at Laketown Wharf!
Elizabeth M.Sep 2019
Fantastic room! Clean, nice view of the beach even though you are just a short distance across the street. Really cool lake with turtles and alligators. A pool for everyone! Great stay! Would defiantly stay again! Only negative thing I could say was closer the week weekend of our week stay it got more crowded and beer cans and such in the parking deck and younger kids driving too fast through the parking deck.
Melonea G.Sep 2019
The condo was great. Very spacious. Great view of the ocean. Just a quick wall across the street from Pineapple Willy’s and the beach.
Donna A.Sep 2019
Loved the privacy, the 5 minute walk to the beach. Condo could have used a couple of missing items such as a remote for the livingroom cable. Didn't bother us as we were on our honeymoon but I can see where that could be a big issue for a family with children. We would definitely recommend.
Melissa K.Aug 2019
Laketown Wharf is an affordable place with many things to do and close to all the fun activities and good places to eat! No matter what age group there is a pool for everyone!
Cherie M.Jun 2019
The room itself was great, however, Laketown Wharf isn't simple to navigate and the elevator time is Extremely Slow. That being said, all in all, we had a great time and would stay at again.

Bed was filthy as if someone slept in it before we went in. Brown and black hair all over under bed spread.
chanmeet R.Aug 2018
Must say it was one of the best trip ever the place was really clean really enjoyed planning to come back again
Ricardo R.Aug 2018
They need to do something about the floors, very greassy. Don’t put that oilie stuff. Other than that, I will give a four out of five
We have advised housekeeping of this comment so they can look into other products. Thank you!
Danielle H.Aug 2018
Beautiful place to stay. Just right for our trip and great location.
Vernon W.Jul 2018
This was my 3rd time staying at Laketown Wharf but my 1st time renting this particular condo. The elevators are terribly slow and we often took the stairs to avoid long waits. Bring a portable fan if staying here because the AC can not be turned down lower than 72. The unit was not properly cleaned and we found hair in both bathrooms and on the master bedroom quilt. We literally washed the sheets went out to buy cleaning products and supplies to clean the bathrooms before we could use them. The master bathroom tub did not drain well and when we called to let Vacasa know they claimed there were sending someone out but no one ever came. We also saw 2 roaches on day 1 but didn’t see any more after that.
We have programmed the air conditioners to not go down below 72 so they do not freeze. We wish this guest had called about the housekeeping oversights so we could have taken care of them for our guests.
Mireya L.Jul 2018
Esta muy bonita la propiedad, sólo que la lavadora no funcionaba y no fueron a repararla, es el único inconveniente
Maricela C.Jul 2018
Está limpia y en muy buena ubicación

Fantastic views and location
Jerica L.Mar 2018
Everything was great. I will be definitely coming back!
John M.Mar 2018
Loved everything about the stay, will be booking here for now on
Catherine U.Mar 2018
The only disadvantage is the crowds in the condo got a bit noisy due to spring break
Sandra K.Mar 2018
So relaxing! Close to the beach and restaurants. Walmart is within walking distance for filling up your pantry or picking up a bottle of wine for supper. Great view of the ocean off the patio.
Robert D P.Sep 2017
Elevators never work and checkout could take you an hour to leave because of them.
Mindy H.Sep 2017
We really live it here. The proximity to everything g is wonderful! We will be back every year!
My family and I enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again if we go back to panama city.
Jennifer S.Aug 2017
Great spot! Nice place to stay!
Jeremy B.Jul 2017
Condo was very spacious and served it's purpose. Wifi worked well for everyone. Place was really crowded making it an unfriendly atmosphere for our family. The the distance traveled to the room from the parking garage, slow elevators, amount of guests and location to retrieve luggage carts made the beginning of our trip cumbersome.
Teresa G.Jun 2017
I would recommend this location
James R.May 2017
Very Clean, Nice Condo in a great location.
Shantel R.Apr 2017
I traveled down with my family for a quick weekend getaway and the condo is actually beautiful and bigger than what we expected. However, there is no WiFi and no nearby WiFi to connect to like we were told. The bathroom was filthy and had footprints in both bathtubs. I did purchased cleaning supplies and cleaned both bathrooms myself. Checking in once you arrival is a bit of a hastle because you have to go to a different counter depending on who you booked and I was sent back and forth multiple times. Those were my only complaints. The property is beautiful, the location was perfect, the view from the condo was to die for, and the view from the fitness center and the 10th floor pool was absolutely breath taken. I would definitely stay at that resort again!
Melissa F.Apr 2017
Nice place to stay
Kwang Ho O.Feb 2017
Normally I don't trust the picture describing here and there but when I got into the room I could not believe that it is really same as the picture!! Very clean, very nice view but I hope this room has the wifi in the future to make us more happy!
Kathy H.Feb 2017
We were very pleased with the condo. Nicest we have been in.
Ronda A.Dec 2016
Love the view!
Mike M.Nov 2016
Very glad we stayed here! Definitely would come back l!
Jeremy W.Oct 2016
The location was great: high enough for a beach view, view of the strip to people-watch, the backside of the condo had a view of a freshwater lake with a boardwalk type deck, located between Pineapple Willy's and Walmart (both within walking distance), not a bad walk to the beach and only 4 miles from St. Andrews State Park. Very clean, beautiful decorations, large unit. The lobby staff were not as welcoming as expected. Make sure to discuss where to park and which elevators to use to get to your room. Very frustrating when you have no direction and you're carrying suitcases. Expect to wait 5 - 15 minutes for an available elevator during busy times.
Rita M.Oct 2016
Everything was awesome, my kids had a wonderful time.
Rooms were extremely nice
Alison T.Oct 2016
It was very relaxing and the location of the property was very convenient
Grace M.Sep 2016
We were so pleased with this rental! The amenities were wonderful and you can't beat that view! We've already talked about how we want to book it again in the future! Thank you for making our stay great!
Tajuddin B.Jul 2016
We had a blast there. Thanx for everything.
Cory A.Jun 2016
Great condo! Loved the pools, enjoyed the light show. Long elevator waits on the weekends.
Amy J.Jun 2016
We were very pleased with our stay. The beach was beautiful and incredibly easy to access. The resort was fabulous. We loved watching the turtles and alligator in the lake. Safety is always my biggest concern when traveling and I never once felt unsafe. If/When we return to PCB, this will be our first choice for accommodations.
Mindy H.Jun 2016
Loved loved loved the location and this condo was wonderful! We will certainly be back as soon as we can arrange it!!
Roger B.May 2016
Had not booked through VRBO Vacsa prior to this stay. All booking , check in out info available through emails and received timely as promised. Love the property and unit was as pictured.Wish boardwalk shops were better utilized. Will definitely be back!
Allyson M.Apr 2016
We enjoyed everything but the cleanliness!
Angela G.Apr 2016
I picked this property because it reminded me so much of my home. I really needed so serious rest. I took my 15 year old twin girls and my Mom and we all had an amazing time of relaxation. We stayed from Monday -Sat, we didn't have any problems til Friday night when the spring-breakers came in, we didn't sleep the whole night. This doesn't reflect Vacasa at all, Laketown Wharf 's staff and security will have to do a much better job at keeping party goers under control. This was my very 1st time renting through Vacasa and I will definitely use their services again. They were accurate and on point. Very tangible and quick to respond, that's very important to me when I travel with my family, so thumbs up Vacasa Team, i appreciate you, thank you!!! Condo was clean and had everything we needed..... looking forward to coming again real soon...
Chad H.Feb 2016
We picked this condo to spend our 24th anniversary at, and it was so beautiful. The view was stunning. There is so much to do around there even in the off season. We went to the mall and the other shopping centers there. It is very nicely furnished and was spotless when we arrived. The place is fully stocked with everything needed from towels to kitchen cookware. The place is very quite and peaceful. The view from our bedroom window of the lake was pretty. They had the light show going on night , that was pretty. We would defiantly go back and have already talked about it next year for our anniversary.
Anas A.Nov 2015
We enjoyed our stay although it was out of season and some attractions opened during the weekend only. The only problem we faced is the fact that there is no internet access.
Jasmine F.Sep 2015
We loved everything about our stay. The complex itself was great. Every night they have water shows out on the lake. In the mornings you can see turtles swimming around and one morning we saw a huge alligator. There were 4 different pools I think and they were all very clean. It was just a short walk from the beach. The condo itself was beautiful and spacious. We had a great view of the ocean. It had everything there we needed, felt like home. The master bed was huge and super comfy with big fluffy pillows. Everything was super clean and updated. We will definitely be back again next year.
