Upgraded oceanfront escape w/pools, sauna, hot tub - snowbirds welcome!

Get the whole group together for a vacation you won't soon forget when you book your oceanfront getaway to this renovated Panama City Beach condo. Featuring upscale amenities like a seasonally heated indoor pool, gulf-side pool, sauna, hot tub, and fitness room, you won't have to go far for fun!

Set right on the beach, this oceanfront condo gives you unobstructed views and easy access to local attractions, dining options, and family-friendly adventures. You'll be just about a mile east of Pier Park, though there is plenty to keep you busy right here at the property!

The contemporary, warm style of the home is framed with a palate of pale yellows and soft cream accents. Put your feet up and lounge on the striped sofa while you check out what's on cable, or watch a DVD on the flatscreen TV. Make it a movie night with some popcorn while the private washer/dryer takes care of any dirty laundry you may have.

Exchange the cool central A/C for the gentle ocean breezes as you step out onto the deck with an ice-cold drink. Take in the sweeping views and connect to the WiFi to find a local adventure the whole family will enjoy.

When hunger hits, the open, full kitchen features custom stone counters, clean white appliances, and a microwave to make cooking for your crew a breeze. Have a helper chop a garnish on the breakfast bar while you put the finishing touches on the main dish. Enjoy your meal at the elegant glass and wood dining room table, and then head out onto the balcony to bask in the views as the dishwasher takes care of the dishes.

As the day winds down, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom condo has plenty of room for up to eight guests to spread out in comfort. In the master bedroom, you'll be greeted by a soft king-size bed, direct deck access, and private en suite bathroom. The second room also has a king-size bed and private en suite. In the third room, your guests will be treated to a queen-size bed, while the fourth room has a double bed. There's also a sofabed, letting everyone enjoy a restful night of sleep.

You won't have to go far for a family-friendly adventure! Right across the street, your whole group will be able to dive into a fun-filled day of mini-golf, go-karts, and sweet treats. Challenge your buddy to a race around the track while everyone else navigates the hazards at the mini golf course. Afterward, take everyone to Sharky's Beachfront Grill for a delicious meal with a view!

Start the morning off with a quick workout in the fitness room, then let off some steam in the sauna. Soak up some sun on the sandy shores, or get out on the waves with a stand-up paddleboard. Hit the gulf-side pool for some laps, or float in the seasonally heated indoor pool. End the day with a stress-melting session in the bubbling hot tub.

Loaded with tropical amenities, fun-filled chances for adventure, and a location just steps from the beach, this oceanfront Florida vacation home is the perfect spot to unwind and create some memories with your whole group!

Great location, quiet, very clean condo. Beach was also very nice with very easy access.

Annual get together. Every year we start with about 40 rooms to review. For the 3rd year in as row, this condo, this 4bdrm was the winner. Location, friendly staff, ease of parking, amenities, local food, drink, shopping, beach access, this place has it all, at a price you can afford! Plus I have to give the property manager, Mike, s shout out. No one nicer, or better. Thank you sir!

This was our first time ever in Panama City Beach. The view from the unit is absolutely amazing and even though we were on the 10th floor, getting to the beach took barely any effort - just put your swimsuit on and go outside. It was simply heaven. Specific to the unit...

The Good: The unit is pretty spacious. The amenities provided were sufficient – it was super awesome to have a washing machine and dryer in the unit. The furniture (minus the couches) seemed high-end – the dining set was quite impressive! The plastic on a couple chairs were ripped, but we laid towels to sit because who likes to sit on plastic? There are beach chairs, a boogie board, some pool noodles, etc. in the main closet (at least, they were when I was there), so it was nice to have those things available because we surely didn’t bring any with us. The pool is ok; the pictures on the website are a bit deceiving because it’s a lot smaller than we expected. The unit gets nice and cold. The building itself seems in fine condition, however there are only 3 elevators so when everyone in the building (I think there are like 20 floors?) is trying to head out to the beach at the same time, it can make for a hot. long. wait.

The Meh: There is only ONE assigned parking spot, and the spots are teeeeeeeny tiny. There is a parking lot directly across the street from the building if you have more than 1 vehicle, but that lot was full the entire time we were there. When we first arrived, we managed to wait around long enough that someone left, but once we were parked we did NOT move that vehicle! We did learn there is a parking arrangement with the Wyndham just down the road, but I’ll warn you, it’s waaaaayyyyyyy at the back of the property… and it's scary as all hell back there. Unfortunately, if you have more than one vehicle and can’t find a spot in the lot across the street, it’s either park at the Wyndham and risk running into Pennywise the Dancing Clown or take your chance on getting towed by finding a random parking spot.

The Ugly: If you read any reviews commenting about how dirty the carpet is, well I can attest to it. The carpet was gross. The couches in the living room weren’t much better, either. It would serve the owner/Vacasa to maybe purchase couch covers or something that can be laundered after each guest. Thankfully I brought extra bed sheets with me so they served as make-shift couch covers. But as far as that carpeting goes… It desperately needs a deep, DEEP clean. In the master bath the carpet was lifted right at the door to the bathroom, so the tack strip was exposed. I doubled up a towel and covered it, but that seems like a pretty obvious repair that should be done promptly. In that same bathroom, the toilet handle completely snapped off, so the entirety of our stay meant the tank lid remained off. Tacky. The tub had a suuuuuper slow drain too, so standing in a pool of your own funk while washing your hair was fun. Fortunately (?) the most negative thing about the unit came at the tail end of our stay and thank the heavens for that because I was supremely pissed. The morning of check out, we were admittedly running slightly behind schedule. At 11am on the dot, the cleaning crew (2 people - a mother and daughter team) was at the door, running us out of there. When I say we were running behind schedule, I’m talking about 10 minutes just to finish getting our stuff out of the unit, not 3 hours to finish packing. But those ladies were NOT happy about it and they made it VERY clear to us, particularly the mother, who spoke very little English but still managed to be a total jag saying to me, “10 minutes, too long!” I get it, I’m sure they had other units they had to get to…but there is no reason they had to be so freakin rude about 10 lousy minutes. Vacasa: if these are your employees…….ACK. But even if they are a hired service, they are a representation of your company and how the older lady acted was totally unnecessary - so much so that I honestly don’t think I'll rent through Vacasa again!
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest's experience wasn't more on the positive side of things. We understand the parking situation is difficult and wish there was something we could do about it. The owner is aware of the comments regarding the carpet. The property manager has taken care of the carpet tacks, toilet handle, and drain clog. We would have addressed these items right away had the guest contacted us about them. We would like to especially apologize for the way these guests were treated at check-out. We have followed-up with our housekeeping manager and contractor. Thank you!

We loved it here! Aside from a few small cosmetic issues that we have emailed about, this condo is AMAZING! We cannot say enough good about the location, view, condo, pool/hot tub facing the ocean, cleanliness of the condo, and customer service. The deck was spectacular and had plenty of room for all of us to eat our meals or sit out and enjoy the sunset. The breeze was fantastic. The condo was very roomy and there was plenty of room for everyone. We had 4 adults and 3 children. The kitchen could use a few more basics, like kitchen towels and baking/food prep tools, but overall it was great! Our original condo in a different building had to be cancelled at the last minute due to circumstances beyond their control. VACASA absolutely took care of us and not only got us a new place on the beach but upgraded us and made sure we were very happy with our stay. We will use VACASA in the future and will recommend them to everyone we can. The condo was so beautiful and we wished we could have stayed longer. You won’t be disappointed if you choose to stay at Ocean Reef 1009! Thank you VACASA for helping us have a very memorable time at the beach.

As we walked into our room, I saw that the bedrooms were very nice. It had a very pleasant beach view as we looked off the balcony, although it rained quite often. The living room was very nice. To sum it up, we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much for an awesome vacation!

It felt like I was home and the view plus easy access to the beach was wonderful.

We loved to sit on the balcony. So peaceful. The beach is right there and we watched dolphins swimming from our room.

There was a lot we liked about this condo. Parking was easy. Getting in and out using the keypad was great. The balcony was huge. Of course, the access to the beach is very easy.

But, for the cost of this unit, we expected it to be really clean. The couch had stains on it and the carpet was horribly filthy. When we were just getting to the unit, I dropped my bottled water and spilled a little bit of water on the carpet. I got a towel to get the water up. I was disgusted by what I saw - the towel basically turned black from the dirty carpet. It disgusted me knowing we were walking on something that dirty so we walked around in our flip-flops inside the unit the rest of the trip.

Manager response:
We apologize the floor was in such a state for this reservation. The carpets and upholstery will be shampooed within the next couple of weeks. Thank you!

The condo was okay. New pillows and kitchen cookware and utensils are needed and would be an inexpensive upgrade.
Tim D. Jul 2017
Good location and plenty of room for family vacation.
