Bright, Airy, & NEWLY Redesigned BEACH FRONT Getaway!

Be our guest at Unit 1708 in the Grand Panama Beach Resort! Come lose yourself to the sound of the ocean waves crashing right outside your living room AND your master suite! That’s right, you can wake up in your king-sized bed with the sea greeting you from your separate entrance to the balcony. You will love enjoying your morning coffee with turquoise ocean views, and water so clear you can see right through it. This newly redesigned beachfront property has been so thoughtfully decorated that you will immediately switch into vacation mode right upon entering! Let those worries wash away and have us host your next beach vacation!

THE SPACE- Sleeps 8
Unit 1708 has two beds, two bathrooms, and comes with: high-speed internet, two Roku smart TVs, a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, and a closet filled with beach chairs for your perfect vacation. The whole family is welcome and will rest comfortably on the twin bunk beds, which the kids will love, and a brand-new pull-out couch. The open floor plan and 9-foot ceilings provide a bright and inviting feel for all.

The Grand Panama Beach Resort has a beachfront pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, and pool bar! The Grand Panama Pool Bar offers refreshing cocktails and yummy sandwiches and salads so you can soak up every second of sun on your trip! For a change of scenery, our guests will also have full access to an ocean-view rooftop pool, hot tub, and grills located in Tower II. For fitness enthusiasts, you will also have full access to the fantastic gym located right off the rooftop pool.

The Grand Panama Beach Resort is centrally located so you can easily travel to Pier Park for shopping, or walk to Another Broken Egg Café for brunch. Grab lunch at some of our local favorites such as Pineapple Willy’s or Schooners. Switch gears and spend the day at Shipwreck Island Waterpark, less than a mile away. More family fun can be had a Wonderworks, Coconut Creek Family Fun Park, or Ripleys Believe It or Not; all just a couple of miles away! And our favorite...there is nothing like taking a boat ride to Shell Island or deep-sea fishing. So much fun to be had at this destination a week might not be long enough!

We are Josh and Jenn, a military family from Pennsylvania. After falling in love with the white sands and turquoise sea that Panama City had to offer, we decided a vacation condo was just what we needed!! It is the perfect way for us to escape the cold PA winters and make memories with our family. We are so excited to share our home with you, and we hope you and your family can make this a special vacation spot for years to come. We want this to feel like your home as well. We are very hands-on hosts who invest/manage real estate back in our home town. We want all of our guests to be taken care of, so we also have enlisted the help of a local management company, Vacasa, to help us address any issues that we can’t handle remotely.

The tv in the living room would not work the whole weekend. The hot water went out on the second day. The beds are hard. The headboard in the king room constantly hit the wall while trying to sit on the bed. The experience was not a good one. My company is what made my trip bearable.
Manager response:
Danny, we are very sorry to hear of the disappointing stay you had at our home. We have passed your feedback to our local manager to work with maintenance on resolving the issues reported.

This unit offers great location and great views of the gulf. The downfalls in this unit is the cleanliness of the unit. Upon arrival the floors looked like they had not been touched, dirty and still had sand. There was trash under the first bedroom so we washed all the linens on both beds when we got there. The walls had something splattered on them that had not been washed. The air filter on the air unit had about 3 inches of dust and looked as if it had not been changed in many months. The bathroom door in the master bath does not shut nor latch. We reached out upon check in to Vacasa but never received anything back. The pool closest to our room was closed due to maintenance the first 4 days of our stay but they said they got the motor fixed on it and got it back operational. As I stated the location and views this unit have are amazing but the housekeeping left it up to the tenants to clean up upon check in.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Benjamin, we're so glad the location of the home served you well. We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness concerns you encountered during your stay with us. Our team of housekeepers takes pride in their cleanliness standards, as it is a top priority service we provide for every guest prior to check-in. We have passed your feedback along to our housekeeping staff so they are aware of your concerns. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future.
Robert B. Sep 2022
The room was nice, relatively clean, and well furnished and stocked. All items worked as expected. Problem was there was no curtain on main sliding glass doors in living room. On the 17th floor, privacy was not an issue, but the sun made the living room almost unusable during the afternoon hours or until the sun went down. This was a significant inconvenience.
Manager response:
Thank you, Robert, for your feedback! We are happy you enjoyed this home. Please know that your feedback is essential, and we have passed your comments along to our local manager, who will work with the homeowner to make any updates. We truly hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future.

I rented this condo for a week so that my children and I could lay to rest my husband, their Daddy. My sisters family came with us. This condo is beautifully decorated as the pictures show. It also sleeps 8 and has high speed internet. The plan was for the children to sleep on the pull out sofa and bunk beds. Unfortunately upon arrival we found that the curtains that are pictured in the living room were not there. There was nothing in the living room to block out the beautiful bright Florida sun. Our children could not go to sleep or stay asleep which forced the adults to sleep on the bunk beds and couch. Absolutely awful. The internet was also terrible. It was constantly going in and out so we couldn’t stream anything on the Roku to entertain the children at night and one of our party members could not do the work required of them. Dishes were dirty in the cabinets, we didn’t have pillowcases for the pillows & the couch mattress was stained. We tried contacting VACASA for three days before we heard back from anyone. They sent us to the property owner who sent us back to VACASA. We got the run around for 4 out of 6 days of our vacation. When we finally got a call from VACASA we were offered a $50 discount on our stay or move to a different condominium in a completely different building that may or may not be on the beach. I paid almost $2500 for this condo on the beach. The parking deck was an absolute disaster. Every level has a dead end and there are no signs to help direct you. We got stuck in several traffic jams where vehicles were having to back backwards down the deck.
This trip was hard enough for me and my children. I had hoped that we could have at least had a nice, restful, clean place to stay. Will. It ever use VACASA again and do not recommend this condo. I wish I could include photos because I have plenty to share to prove the situation.
Manager response:
Hi Christy. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry we were unable to provide you with a pleasant stay during what must have been a very stressful time. Unfortunately the curtains were down as a new custom curtain rod needed to be ordered. We are so sorry for the inconvenience that caused. Wifi is provided by the building and we do not have control over it's functionality but we will be sure to notify the building manager about it. Thank you for the opportunity to host you. We hope to see you again.

The view was absolutely breathtaking! The unit was so spacious!
Jennifer C. Oct 2021
The Grand Panama is a wonderful complex, great pools, beautiful beachfront location on perfect white powder sand that PCB is known for. The beach chairs (available to rent) were comfortable and we were fortunate to have beautiful weather during our 3 night stay. There is a $20 fee for a parking pass and the parking is VERY tight. Unit 1708 had a few drawbacks which is why 4 Vs 5 stars. Being on the 17th floor required elevators which was often times problematic. Wait times were not only long, they were often at capacity which meant waiting even longer. The unit itself was decorated very nicely but we quickly uncovered things that felt a bit odd. For example, the kitchen had basics but lacked a large frying pan, had no salt & pepper and no coffee filters. There was not a light above the table. The sitting room furniture was very uncomfortable and offered only enough seating for four. The sheets felt rough and there seemed to be a lack of pillows. The furniture on the balcony included two well worn loungers and two chairs, not even a small table to set down a cup of coffee. Although there was nothing “wrong” with the unit it just felt a bit lacking in little things that we are accustomed to while traveling. Overall, we feel that the unit could use a bit of a refresh, fresh coat of paint, pressure washing on the balcony floor and a deep clean of the units tile floor. This is the second time staying at the Grand Panama but the first for this unit. We would stay here again but would likely seek to book a unit on a much lower floor.
Kasandra H. Aug 2021
It was a nice condo for the most part, plenty of space. I wish it was more clean. At least once a month someone should pressure wash the balcony, it was black & sticky. The ladder to the bunk beds needs to be wiped off after every stay, it was black from dirty hands and feet. Pretty sure there was black mold in the master bath, next to the stand up shower door, if not black mold definitely something that shouldn’t be there with water damage too. The two main walls in the living room/dining room area were gross with smudged hand prints, someone should take the time to wipe them down every once in a while.
Manager response:
Hi, Kasandra! We apologize the home was not as clean as it should have been and hope you will be pleased to hear we have just deep cleaned the entire rental. Thank you for staying with us!
Stephen F. Aug 2021
Our condo was spotless and was equipped with everything needed and more. I recommend it to everyone. Thank you!
Karissa B. Jul 2021
The condo was nice and clean! Location was great!
Tracy C. Jul 2021
Very nice place to stay!
Melinda K. Jul 2021
Everything about this unit is perfect! Plenty of towels and comfortable unit. Extremely clean. Great view. AC was fantastic too on these hot July days! Checking in and out we’re super easy and no stress!
Amanda C. Apr 2021
We absolutely loved the location of this condo. There were not many condos nearby, making it easy to snag a spot on the beach away from others. Make sure to not leave condo on the weekend, as the roads get very crowded in PCB, and you may not have a spot in the garage when you get back (very small parking garage for two towers with 20+ floors each). But great news, you are within walking distance of a handful of restaurants and activities. As a family of four with grown children, we enjoyed having so many “living spaces” in this condo, and we never felt like we were on top of each other. Our favorite activities while visiting were dolphin watching from the balcony in the morning, and St. Andrews State Park. This condo was clean, well decorated with a light and airy beach feel exactly as pictured, and directions for check in/check out was made easy with the Vacasa app!
Brittany B. Mar 2021
We loved EVERYTHING about this home! It’s clean, cozy, comfortable and has an incredible view! The bedrooms feel private and quiet, the balcony is a perfect place to relax, and the kitchen provides all the amenities you could need. The pools and ocean are easily accessible, as are fun outings for the family. We would absolutely stay here again and again!
Zach H. Sep 2020
The condo was as pictured with plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, pool toys, and other accessories that were very much welcomed and enjoyed! The condo and property were very well taken care of and the beach was perfect. We will definitely have this place on our list to potentially rebook next time in PCB!
Randy W. Sep 2020
The condo was spacious and the view amazing. Beautiful decor, comfortable and relaxing!
Joey B. Feb 2020
I made reservations at a condo and they had to cancel me at the last minute. My girlfriend found this place, so I booked it. Everything about our stay was perfect. We do plan on returning to this very room every year for as long as we can. The place is big enough for two couples and youngins. We may even invite our friends along next year. Thanks. A+
Dolores J. Feb 2020
This condo is clean and spacious! Well decorated and an excellent view of beach/ocean! WE LOVED the balcony and our kids had a great time!
Michelle S. Jul 2019
This was our 1st time staying here and it was everything we could of wanted!! It was clean, decorated beautifully, and had all the extras that we needed for our weeks stay. We enjoyed every minute and the view from our condo was amazing! We would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
Charles H. Jul 2019
First time at this resort, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only negative is parking. If you have more than two vehicles, you have to use $5 a day, unsecured public parking, 3/4 mile away. There was plenty of unused spaces on the top of the second garage. You also have to pay for the 2 parking passes you are allowed to have.
Manager response:
Hello Charles, thank you for your review. Regretfully, this home is only allowed two parking spaces due to condo association policies. Thank you for abiding by these restrictions. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!
Sudhanva V. Jul 2019
The place and location is great... view from balcony is amazing... would definitely consider going there again. Only challenges we found were lift was very crowded (may be due to peak season - 4th July) and finding a right parking spot... apart from that everything else was just great.
James S. Jun 2018
Great house, great location, great view, what else do you need. Our second year there and we will be back.
