Located in the Fontainebleau Terrace community, this condo is centrally located to offer you convenient access to shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and entertainment.

With amenities like these, you'll be able to experience true Florida living.
Decorated in beach-themed decor, this condo is inviting and open. Most of the space is painted in a calming bluish-teal that pairs well with the picturesque ocean right outside the door.

You'll have access to great amenities in this condo's community. You may want to start off the day by sipping a coffee on the balcony as you bask in the beauty of the ocean view. Checking out the workout facility on the fifth floor is a good idea if you're looking to get a quick workout in. Then you can grab a towel and your sunscreen and walk a few steps to the sugar-white sand outside of your doorstep.
With 27 miles of world-renowned beaches, Panama City Beach will never get boring. Try out some new water sports like parasailing or paddleboarding, and then head to Firefly for a seafood experience like never before. You'll also want to visit Pier Park for some shopping, entertainment, and an all-around good time. But then again, you'll be in Florida, so it won't be hard to find that.

Very clean and well situated, equipped with everything you need.
The room itself was not bad.. very out dated. & needs some work. Overall we had a nice stay!

Non-smoking is a joke. Pepole were smoking at the pool and on the out side of there room. The beach is littered with cigarette butts. close the building was to the beach is unbeatable! Saved tons of money by making food in the room.
We are sorry to see there were some disrespectful guests; we have brought this to the attention of the HOA. Thank you!
We love room 218 the balcony view was amazing!! The room was clean and comfy! Will be back again for sure!! Is the Fontainebleau fancy... no it's not but it's clean and is comfy and works to enjoy the beach that is what is most important to my family. We loved the kitchen and fridge it just works to stay here. Again 218 we love and will he back as soon as we can be. Thanks

The view from the room of the beach was spectacular!!! The indoor pool looked clean and inviting. The parking was worrisome. The dishes provided could've been sets but instead looked to be provided by the Goodwill. The room was clean, The beds were clean and very comfortable. The florescent lighting in vanity by bathroom was temperamental. The cold water tap in tub was broken...had to push in hard to make it work. Plenty of hot water!!!! Toilet handle is on it's last leg. That will definitely need to be replaced very soon. Not enough towels were provided. No non slip pad was provided for the tub. Entering tub was extremely slippery. Electric wall plug for lamp on night stand between beds was extremely difficult to reach (access), I may be nit picking, but I may want to stay there again...if all that I mentioned were fixed or provided. The price was excellent!!!!
Do not let the exterior fool you. For the cost, you cannot beat the location or the view or the ease of simply walking down the stairs and having your feet in the sand. We have been to this property 7 times now and would not consider staying anywhere else. After all, when you go to the beach who needs a room fit for a king? You are there to look at the ocean, collect shells then eventually shower and sleep, right?
Parking is a nightmare!! People who didn't even have passes were parked there while we had a pass and had to park always away and walk. Other than that the stay wasn't terrible.
We have stayed in room 218 for the last 7 years and we love the balcony and the room! The decor is outdated and hasn't been changed since we started coming but overall we love it! The location is great and the beach is fantastic :)
Location: 4/5, Balcony: 5/5, Room: 2/5. We stayed here for our 2nd Anniversary. We had read the reviews that construction was being done however no one mentioned that the room directly above this one was being remodeled. From about 9am-4pm it was on and off constant noise from drills, saws, grinders, hammers, etc. which sucked. The room has a ton of black mold and cockroaches as well which wasn't to pleasant to find. Half way through our stay a random Terminix guy showed up and said they had to enter our room per some maintenance contract which took the privacy down to zero as they came right in after opening the door. My wife was in bed watching tv and it made everything very awkward. Can't they schedule these right after someone checks out?? The only other issue is the lights outside the main door for the stair well. Even with two sets of blinds the lights of the stair well at night make it very bright in the room with all the other lights off. Also I can do "vintage" but this is more like an outdated motel 8. The location is a plus and so is the balcony view but that's about all that you get as a positive staying here, as this room is only 1/6 rooms out of over 100 that has its own balcony. It may be best to seek out room 318 above this one once they finish remodeling that room.
We apologize for the disappointments this guest experienced. The units are individually owned so we do not receive notification when owners choose to do work on their condos. HOA has hired pest control to address the cockroach situation. There are some mildew stains in the grout, but there is no black mold present in this home. We will ask HOA to speak with pest control about proper entry to a home; unfortunately, we cannot control their schedule and they come when they must. The owner will be presented with the option of providing blackout curtains to help block out the light. Thank you!
Awesome. Great view and beach access. Close to all attractions and cute room. Would and will go back!
Great view and access to the beach.
The guy Mike that rents the room out was super nice. The bathroom had mold in the tub, our wall inside of the condo was dirty. The Windows were nasty. I would never recommend this room too anyone. Vintage is an understatement for these condos. The elevator looked like it was about to fall apart. Let's just say I wanted to spend more time out of the condo than inside of it.
There is still some construction happening near this unit that contributes to some of the comments: there is paneling on the elevator walls to prevent any damage from occurring to the finished walls, and the windows are constantly dirty from the concrete grinding. There is some discoloration of grout around the tub, but there is no mold. Our senior housekeeper has performed a deep spring cleaning on the home to address any cleanliness issues. Thank you!
Great location for a weekend getaway. The view was amazing!!
Overall- We really enjoyed our trip to Panama City. The building and rooms were exactly as advertised. Nothing fancy, but you can't get any closer to the beach than this. They should plan maintenance work around the busy season like Spring Break though. It did make somethings rather inconvenient. Overall- everything was great and we will definitely stay here again.
THis is a historic and beautiful place to stay if you can see past the age.
Very upset that I couldn't even use my "condo" for things you would use a condo for. Couldn't take any food in due to roach issues. Had to go buy a blanket to sleep on after finding a dead roach under the blanket that was provided. Had to fumagate my luggage once i got home. What a vacation !
For a cozy small family vacation spot, this is perfect. My 2 kids and I are very tight knit and this spot was all we needed and we loved every minute. Vacasa staff was friendly, professional and prompt. Will definitely look to them for accommodations in the future.
This was a decent place to stay. Quiet and clean. Location was perfect.....not crowded, beach was beautiful. ..definitely stay here again
The kitchen at all stuff that u would require in terms of utensils. Was very pleased with the overall facility
Great for the price. Room needs a little TLC. But the view was great.
This place for the price was worth it. It needs updating with new appliances . It was overall clean except for some dusting but we saw and killed several roaches. Kept all food up and the trash tied up. This unit is in front of several other units but I think the roaches could be controlled if they sprayed monthly. The walk to the Beach was easy and close. The location cannot be beat. It is small but large enough for 2 people.
We apologize that cockroaches are still a problem with this unit. The HOA has just switched to a new pest control company, and we're hopeful that the next few months show improvement.
Great spot for a girls trip to the beach. This unit is small enough for 2 people, can sleep 4 but that would be crowded!
Great view of the ocean, great room great experience with Vacasa.
We had a great experience at Fountainbleau Terrace, the ocean is as close to a motel as you can get, the room (218) was very clean. We will definitely stay here again. Thank You Vacasa for making this a fast & easy experience. Thanks to Mike for bringing by a new blender. Great Week!
I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS ON THE CONDO. THE OWNERS WARNED US THAT THE CONDO WAS AN OLDER CONDO, SO ALL I WOULD HAVE TO SAY WOULD BE FOR THEM TO GIVE THE UNIT A LITTLE MORE TLC AND UPDATE A FEW THINGS AND THE CONDO WOULD LOOK A LITTLE BIT HAPPIER !! THANKS FOR A GREAT STAY !!
Nice pool and great views of the beach
I was a little skeptic, but this place has an AMAZING VIEW from the balcony! It is worth it just for that. I would recommend only two people or a really close group of four to stay here. The space is just right for two in my option. Super quick and easy access to the beach! This place is just a short drive to Dusty's Oyster Bar and we visited twice when we stayed here. Amazing seafood! The Hidden Lagoon Super Golf and Racetrack is literally right across the street and we ended up walking there one night and playing a round of golf. You can win $50 if you get a hole in one on the last hole. Shuckums Oyster Pub & Seafood Grill is just a short drive as well. We had a GREAT trip and we plan on staying here again in the future.
The view and the location was great! But our specific room needs some updating. I could see into some of the other condos as I walked by (people had their doors and blinds open) and the beds looked so comfy compared to our outdated hotel-like ones. Everything was (just) okay for a weekend stay, but II wouldn't want to be there a whole week. Nice pool, nice lounge areas, called for WiFi info and got help pretty quick (I called at about 11 pm). But the specific room we rented needs a little help.
The location was great! Sits sort of at the end by itself therefore the beaches weren't crowded at all. Room could use some improvement. I would consider staying again if the site continues improvements and gets a handle on the smoking and roach problem. Not sure about room 218 again though.
Me and my wife have stayed in room 218 four times. It has a wonderful view of the beach. The room is always clean, water is hot & the A/C blows cold. Also, quick access to the beach.
The balcony facing the ocean was small, but perfect for 2 people to sit on to relax and enjoy the beach. The efficiency was clean and well stocked. For the price it was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Thanks!!
Pictures on the website were a little misleading. Rooms are privately owned so some are completely updated and others still look like they are from the 1980's. Outside of the property is currently being remodeled so in the future this could be a nice place to stay once it is completed. Pool needs to be heated or this feature needs to be taken off the website. Overall, for the price it was ok to stay in for a couple of days. I would not want to stay here with more than 2 people because the rooms are very small.
