Inside, cottage furniture and seashell decor make space a relaxing retreat from busy tourist activities and the beach! The elongated studio offers a flat-screen cable TV that you can watch while snuggling in bed, a bistro table for two, and a fully stocked kitchen. You'll have no trouble packing snacks for the beach or baking fish caught fresh from the pier thanks to a miniature stove/oven, microwave, and full refrigerator.

The bedroom features two queen-size beds and is decorated in calming pastel colors and soft beach decor which will inspire your ocean-themed dreams! A full tub and shower will help rinse the beach off your skin as you get ready for a night on the town! Best of all, central AC and linoleum floors will keep the space cool even in summer's heat.
Pack lunches for an outdoor meal at the community picnic tables while watching kites flutter in the sky and waves crashing into the beach. When you need an escape from the sun but still want to play in the water, meet friends and plan a day trip at the nearby Shipwreck Island Water Park. You'll be tempted to spend most of your time boogie boarding and lounging at the beach, but don't overlook nearby attractions!
Ride go-karts or play miniature golf at the Hidden Lagoon Super Race Track just beyond your condo, or feed dolphins and sharks at Gulf World Marine Park. Miracle Strip Amusement Park will have your entire group riding roller coasters one afternoon, and then riding in a helicopter the next with Panhandle Helicopter LLC. St. Andrews State Park offers fantastic walking trails and boating amenities.
When planning a beach vacation, you'll want to spend your money on fun and attractions - not just a place to stay - and this condo offers everything you need to make the most of your time in the surf and sun!

We loved the condo. It was just what we needed. Easy clean up and just an elevator ride to the beach! Perfect location everywhere we went was either a few minutes of a walk or just a short drive away! Beach was really nice and clean and not too populated which made it nice and easy to find a spot.
We stayed shortly after Hurricane Michael. We were in town for a wedding and were walking distance to the venue. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and the kitchenette was helpful. The room was equipped with a iron, hair dryer and even a chair for the beach! We received a personal phone call from the property mgt to make sure that check-in was smooth (and it was). We will defiantly stay here again!
Loved the complex! Right on the beach with terraces that make relaxing easy.
The room was nice and comfortable! The building itself was a little run down, but it was very quiet and right on the beach so it was a great place to stay on a budget!
The condo was great for four people, and it had incredibly easy access to the beach. Vacasa was extremely attentive and made sure we had everything that we needed. I would definitely recommend staying here to my friends and family.
Everything was Amazing. Condo was Very Nice. Right on the beach and in walking distance to everything you could need, The indoor pool was very nice. Will Definitely stay in 309 again.
We loved the location, on the end of a row of hotels which gave easy access to some lesser populated beach space. The view of the sunset from our room was fantastic as well. Loved the big chairs on the balcony/patio shared space.
I loved everything about this apartment. Easy to get to and from places while avoiding traffic due to the backroads that are easily accessible. I loved that it was on the beach and there’s no gate key needed like at other condos to access the beach. I will say that the only thing I didn’t like was the parking. I was warned that it was on a first come first served basis but I didn’t think it would get that crowded. Some people even made their own parking spots on the property. There was always room to park on the road to the left of the building so I can’t say it was super bad. I would def recommend his place to everyone I know and I would even look into this place next time I go to PCB.
Great location, right on the ocean. The room was smaller than expected but very clean and comfortable. My only complaint was there wasn't enough parking spaces. I was afraid to move my car in the evenings because I wasn't guaranteed a parking spot when I returned.
We absolutely loved this room! Freshly remodeled and very clean. All rooms in this building are individually owned so don't book a different room based upon this review. We had 4 women in this room for 5 nights and it worked perfectly. I would absolutely bring my family of 4 back here. Room included everything we needed. I look forward to booking again.
Everything was just as described & great. The only thing that could’ve been better was the parking. It was very limited, but besides that, our stay was great!
My stay was nice! I think the place works great!
We enjoyed our stay. Had a problem with no cold water in the shower but it was fixed asap. It's an older place but our room was clean & we really liked how close the beach was. Not much walking to get on it.
We arrived on Tuesday.. parking is small but manageable. Was very confused by check out didn't know if we needed to put towels in washer or just put them in the shower. Place was very clean and everything was very organized. Other all cute little hole in the wall that we'd definitely say at again!
Had great vacation room was very clean and cute. right on the beach
Room was a little small for 4 people but we made it work.
great time on the beach
Closest to the beach! You May think the property is older, it is but it is very well-maintained. I love being able to make my choice of balconies to sit on outside. Multiple levels of balconies, smoking areas, sitting areas, gathering places. The downside, the mattresses need to be replaced . Not extremely bad I've had worse, but I weigh 117 pounds and I felt every spring in the bed closest to the door. The unit had everything you could possibly need just bring a toothbrush and toothpaste and coffee. Grab a few groceries come in then instead of waiting until you get there, because of congestion and traffic it may be close but it takes a long time. I suggest no more than four people and enjoy the beach!!!!!! I'll definitely say again even if they don't change the mattresses out, roll a crate over top. Your set!

Vacasa people you deal with making reservations couldn't be nicer . So I would use them again but never stay at Fontainebleau!!
We are sorry to see this guest was displeased with their lodgings despite being happy with our services. Any specific feedback is always appreciated so we can work on improvements. Thanks!
Room 309 was a super nice room and very clean as well as super affordable. With the room overall we were very pleased. As far as the staff (2 people in particular, one being the manager I assume) is concerned they're were rude and hateful when it was highly uncalled for. Ie: we hung our wet towels on chair by our door and apparently that isn't allowed... and neither is sitting on the balcony and enjoying your lunch. After initially seeing the room I had planned on booking in the fall, but this will not be the case. My family and I will not return to The Fountainbleu.
The only issue we had was the room being a little too small for for 2 adults and 2 children to fit comfortably.
This is close to EVERYTHING. Close to Pier Park. Close to Club La Vela. Close to all the popular restaurants. We loved the location. The beach wasn't packed, and we felt almost like we had the place to ourselves. There aren't many of the HUGE condo buildings, so it was WAY less crowded compared to other places I have stayed. I would definitely recommend this room. The staff at Vacasa is wonderful if you happen to have any issues or if you leave items in the room. They are quick to reach out to you via email or phone if they miss your original call.
This place is right on the beach, beds are descent, room was clean and staff was great.. all in all this is a great place for 1-2 people for a few days to a week.
Overall we were satisfied with our visit. We typically stay in condos versus a hotel type environment but the room is as described. The staff was very friendly and we were able to check in early which was a plus. Just wish there was a better view or a balcony versus walking out the front door and getting a side view but I guess some view is better than none.
We were pleased with our recent stay. The entire property is a bit on the older side but is in a great location. Our unit had a great view of the sunset and the beach facing west. Our unit and the property were all very clean and well maintained. The only complaint I had is with the internet - it was very slow and unreliable. I would definitely stay here again!
Your experience (public)
After searching and finding this property on Vrbo and reading reviews that we're all good, I can only imagine that you don't show the bad reviews. The place, room included, is very run down. The elevator was down when we arrived and had to carry all out luggage and groceries up 3 flights of stairs. My daughter who went with me is very pregnant, so this was one of the first downfall of the place. ( the elevator was fixed later that day) We had to kill roaches in the room while there!! And I find this very unacceptable! The bed did seem clean, however the mattresses were worn and rutted out. There were not enough wash cloths to last for 4 days. We will not be back to this place. I learn from my mistakes. Take my advice- spend a little more and skip this one.
We apologize that this stay was not more enjoyable. We have sprayed for cockroaches and will make sure housekeeping is leaving enough towels for the maximum occupancy. Thank you.
It was overall a great experience . U cant beat the views from the room of the beautiful panama city beach!
Amazing view, great price and you can't beat the location. It was very clean which is extremely important. You are right on the beach and it has a great pool as well. My husband and I walked every where. I can't wait to go back.
Very happy with our room and the location to the beach ~ not crowded at all ~ it was like having our own private beach ~
This unit had everything we needed. Could use some cosmetic updates and the beds could be better. The stove takes some wiggling to get going. I would definitely stay in this unit again. So clean , great view right on the beach. Thinking of coming back next year with the whole family.
Easy check in and out. We always had a great parking spot. View is good, price is great. Room is small for more than 2 people and repairs do need to be made. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay!! Outdoor space was great too. Did not use the pool so unsure of the condition. We may stay in the future.
