Beachfront Views, Pools, and Hot Tub in a Resort Community - Snowbirds Welcome

Beachside comfort in a lavish resort community is what you get with this one-bedroom, two-bathroom Panama City Beach vacation rental. Great features like beach access, two community pools, and spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico coastline are ready to welcome your group of up to six lucky vacationers!

The condo is located on the 11th floor of the Emerald Beach Resort, and its inclusion in this resort means you’ll have access to first-class luxuries in a beautiful beachfront location. Pump some iron in the building’s fitness center, then reward yourself with a cold frappuccino from the Starbucks in the lobby or with an umbrella drink from the Sky Bar lounge. You can also find two community pools on-premises, a shared hot tub, a nearby 27-hole golf course, and quick access to watersports like kayaking, paddleboarding, and sailing on the Gulf.

With potted tropical plants, light and breezy tones, and coastal decor adorning the walls and tabletops, this home broadcasts a distinct beachside character. The living room is an entertainment oasis with a cable-equipped television that also has a DVD player and DVD library for use on stormy days. With its two comfy couches and elegant wood tables, the living room is also a haven for relaxation.

Attached to the living room is a set of sliding glass doors that open to reveal a balcony with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico coastline. Sit at the glass-top table on the balcony to enjoy a beautiful pink sunset, or make this your morning quiet spot as you sip coffee and read the local newspaper. Back inside and on the other side of the living room sits a well-stocked kitchen. Modern appliances - a dishwasher, microwave, oven, stove, and more - make it easy to prepare a fantastic seafood feast for your whole group with quick cleanup afterwards. There’s also plenty of counter space to lay out all your ingredients.

Up to six people can sleep comfortably in this home. Down a hallway sits a nook with twin beds and one bedroom with sleeping space for two (plus, a sofabed in the living room adds sleeping space for two more). The one bedroom contains a plush king-size bed in a beautiful white wooden frame, and matching white wood nightstands on each side of the bed, reading lamps, and a dresser. This room will surely be a place of restful slumber after a long day spent playing or relaxing in the glorious Florida sun.

*Please note, all guests occupying this property who are under the age of 25 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Thank you!

Briana M. Sep 2022
This Condo was great! The area was great we felt very at home! Would Def stay there again!
Rodney W. Sep 2022
We loved everything about this Condo.
Julie L. Jul 2022
This was our first trip to Panama City Beach. We loved our stay at Emerald Beach 1133. The unit was clean when we arrived; everything worked well in the unit. We loved the beach access and close proximity to restaurants and Walmart. The ocean view is spectacular. We would definitely stay again when we come back for another vacation.
Savanna B. May 2022
We noticed that this condo was very clean as soon as we walked in it smelt clean (& not just a bleach smell). We didn’t notice anything that was dirty at all. It was nicely updated & the sheets/bedding was all refreshed & the bed was very comfortable. The tv in the living room was a smart tv so it was nice to be able to stream movies & shows. The view was great & the location was awesome being able to walk to Sharky’s, Senor Frogs, Runaway Island & the Mexican restaurant Autentika across the street has the best burritos & street tacos so it’s nice to have food options close by. The only thing I would change is add a dining table to eat at where the two chairs are now since those aren’t really used & eating at a high top counter or the coffee table with kids isn’t ideal. Also, the living room fan/light needs to be replaced because you can’t run the fan at night without having the light on. We love staying at Emerald & it is our go to resort for the location, pools & bar. We would definitely stay in condo 1133 again.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Savanna. We appreciate your feedback as a means to continually improve our homes, as well as our guest's comfort and satisfaction. We will certainly keep your comments in mind when planning updates to the home. We hope to host you again.
Linda C. Apr 2022
Love the beach location and convenience of property to where to where my event took place.
Nicholas P. Apr 2022
Great view. Acceptably clean. Has been updated since some of the previous reviews, because everything was ship shape. No complaints, other than having to leave.
Raleigh M. Mar 2022
Our unit was clean and had a beautiful view! We enjoyed our stay and will be booking through Vacasa again!
Roberta G. Mar 2022
We really liked the location of our condo. We were a good distance above the street noice so that it didn't effect us a great deal. The view from the balcony allowed us to see a distance which included seeing a few dolphin. The condo itself was quite roomy. If we would have had additional people we would probably have benefitted from some more tableware and having a pitcher. I small table might be nice, too.
Alonzo R. Feb 2022
Overall, this was a great condo. It had everything in it that we needed.
Lucia L. Feb 2022
Everything was nice and clean. The view was amazing.
Anna K. Feb 2022
A slice of HEAVEN! You will be swept away by the breathtaking view from the second you walk in to this stunning beachfront unit. This home away from home is incredibly cozy, beautifully decorated, fully stocked, and super comfortable. You will love the soaker tubs, the bright, spacious, open floor plan, large kitchen, full size fridge and appliances, the double-sliding patio doors that give you full range of ocean view, and the new King size bed. This place has it all! And all within a minutes walk to several fine restaurants, and Starbucks. Could you ask for anything more? Hope you stay here and enjoy it as much as I did. My husband and I can't wait to be back - couldn't imagine a better stay anywhere in Panama City! You'll love it.
Chathan B. Jan 2022
We loved the view this condo provided! It also had a great kitchen and bedroom. The only bad thing about this condo is 1. It was really dusty. The ceiling fan had dust all over it. We also dropped something under the bed and shouldn’t have looked under there. It was dusty and looked like it had never been cleaned. For the price of the cleaning fee, that place should be spotless. 2. You can’t enjoy the ocean sound from inside because you can’t leave the doors open longer than 15 minutes or it can mess up the air conditioner. 3. The shampoo and bar soap were really cheap quality. Overall though, it’s good for a few nights stay. If I were staying longer I would definitely choose a different one. My allergies were flared up from all the dust on the fan after one night.
Manager response:
We're so glad you stayed with us, Chathan. It's disappointing to read you were unhappy with some aspects of your stay. Housekeeping has done a thorough dusting to address that concern. The doors can be left open, but the central air needs to be turned off to prevent damage to the system. Thank you!
Rastislav B. Dec 2021
Nice place👍
Tina S. Oct 2021
We loved location one the view was excellent
Julie A. Aug 2021
We enjoyed our stay here but how could you not with that ocean view!
Wynness C. Jul 2021
We love the condo. It was perfect for us. We appreciate Vacasa checking on us and making sure we were happy. We hope next year to stay at 1133 Emerald Beach Resort.
Angie S. May 2021

Latifah R. Nov 2020
Everything was nice
Nichole H. Oct 2020
We were very pleased with the layout of the apt and the location! However there were many issues after check in. The room was described as having a sofa sleeper which was not the case my handicapped mother had to sleep on a twin size bunk bed. There was only 1 side of the screen door, outlets were missing their covers, no lent filter in the dryer, broken closet door in the master bedroom, broken lamp shade, no cable in the master bedroom, guest bathroom shower head was broken. Contacted customer service about these problems and was given a very small refund for the shower head and cable issue but was just told sorry about other things. I will seriously think twice before booking through company again. 😒
Manager response:
Hi, Nichole! We appreciate your feedback and sincerely apologize we missed updating the listing to reflect there is no longer a sleeper sofa in the home. The outlet covers have been replaced along with the lamps, and the closet door has been put back on track. Thank you!
Debra D. Sep 2020
The smell of mildew was really bad. The air vents were dirty with dust. The master bedroom closet was broke. The master bedroom tv didn’t work. There were not enough cooking utensils to cook. The screen on the front window was ripped. We were only given 4 towels. The dryer was so loud it sounded like something was broke in it. The walls are stained. The master bedroom bed felt very lumpy- not comfortable at all.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Debra! We're sorry to hear that you feel mislead and for the disappointing experience during your visit. Our information shows that we attempted to relocate you to a home that was more suitable, and we apologize that the options were not to your liking. Please know that local management has since addressed the closet door, and the owner has added new furniture, applianced, and linens. We invite you to stay with us again and allow us to provide a much more relaxing experience.
Daniel G. Aug 2020
Not clean when we entered, furniture, walls, and closet not well maintained.
Manager response:
Hello Daniel, we apologize for the circumstance that you arrived at our local staff is always ready to resolve any issue that arises with a call to our 24 hr customer service line. I can ensure that the feedback has been given to our local staff to improve the home for your guests. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.
Kendra S. Jul 2020
This condo needs a complete facelift. Do yourself a favor and spend a few dollars and stay elsewhere. This is not a reflection of the location (which is great) just this particular condo. The one star is for the fact that it is beachfront.
Manager response:
Hi, Kendra! This home has new furniture, appliances, and linens. We are disappointed to read you were unhappy with these improvements and do hope to have a chance to impress you in the future.
Jodie H. Jul 2020
The view is amazing from this condo! Sure, it could use a few updates, but the view more than makes up for that. Some suggestions I would make would be to add a cookie sheet and bigger skillet to the kitchen, and also since there are two bathrooms, each bathroom should have its own roll of toilet paper. We were only given one roll to share between bathrooms before we could buy more. We had a great time, and I wouldn’t hesitate to book this condo again!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Jodie. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to our management team for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Kate C. Jul 2020
It may seem like a good deal, but don’t save the few bucks! Gross. Dirty, moldy, worn out. (Pictures are deceiving) HVAC wasn’t keeping up, so it was hot. The door didn’t have an interior lock, so we didn’t feel safe at night. The ice maker didn’t work. It doesn’t COMFORTABLY sleep 5. My son slept on a really old pull out couch and it was a rough night. Worst place I’ve ever stayed.
april h. Jul 2020
Jamarcus H. Jul 2020
Best thing about this place among others is the view!!
Cortney H. Jun 2020
Room was not clean. Lights in one bedroom didn’t work. Closet door in the same bedroom would not shut. Too much work to get wrist bands and a parking pass that should have been in our room when we arrived.
Manager response:
Hi, Cortney! We appreciate your feedback and apologize for the issues you encountered. The bedroom lights are lamps controlled by a switch; we will ensure they are in sync. The closet door will be taken care of as soon as possible. Thank you!
Elizabeth R. Jun 2020
Room was clean, yes the furniture has seen better days, but it didn’t impact our stay! Maybe just a fresh coat of paint on the walls. I wouldn’t hesitate booking this condo again we loved the resort, elevators did have some long waits so hopefully they can get the more up and running. Overall it was a great visit!
Rhonda J. May 2020
There was a great Ocean View!
Jon C. Mar 2020
Despite the CORVID-19 pandemic and the beaches closing, the condo was great.
Ruben E. Aug 2019
The balcony view
Brody R. May 2019
We loved how much room there was for everyone we had 4 and a baby and it was perfect. Everything was easy to find minus the sand it was fantastic and the property owner communicated well when we had any questions.
Jennifer H. Mar 2019
This condo was a prefect match for me and my children. We had plenty of room to spread out and the view was stunning. The entire process was so simple and Vacasa made it stress free. The resort has several family friendly options and the heated pool made my little one's days so much nicer!
We are looking forward to our next stay at Emerald Beach Resort!
Aaron L. Mar 2019
Loved it all
Jo S. Mar 2019
I loved the view from the condo. It was close to Pier Park. The Skybar. The strip mall next door with the Steamer and Mexican food. Salvador’s. Lots of things to love.
Jo S. Mar 2019
The view is phenomanol. The beach is awesome. The Skybar and the hotel has lots of activities. Puzzle table is nice if you want to slow down for a minute. It’s close to Pier Park and lots of restaurants and shopping. The ice cream shop and snack bar is handy and you can’t beat the food at the little strip mall next door. Seafood at Steamers is awesome. 🏖
The place itself could use a few updates but the view makes it all worthwhile.
Jo S. Feb 2019
I loved the view, the Skybar, the puzzle table and the new friends I made. Fun place to stay. Close to Pier Park And lots of other restaurants and businesses.
Darlene L. Nov 2018
We found the condo in good shape, and everything was as Vacasa explained. One thing that was annoying: the elevators were tied up during the day with cleaning carts, and laundry carts. Not all elevators were available. Don't know if the cleaning crew locked some of the elevators for their use.
Harriet H. Nov 2018
The view was amazing!!
Shanna G. Sep 2018
The view, the layout of the condo!

Tina S. Jun 2018
Great time beautiful ocean view 🌊will return..very thing in close walking distance staff very friendly and helpful🌟👍
Tonya F. May 2018
The condo was beautiful and clean. Everything we needed was there. The only thing that was inconvenient was the multiple elevators you had to take from the Parking garage to the rooms.
Tish H. May 2018
We loved the location. It was very well-kept. It was nicely decorated. The condo had everything we needed.
Michelle H. May 2018
The view was beautiful and there was easy access to the beach. Everything including laundry detergent, fabric softener, dish soap, and paper towels was provided. The Skybar is family friendly with drinks for adults and ice cream for the kids.
David P. May 2018
It was close to all the vendors .had a great stay!!!
Shaonna C. Mar 2018

The condo was nice, with beautiful view of the ocean. The weather was great. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
would stay here again.
Julie V. Sep 2017
This was a great place to stay. This room has an amazing view. It's very spacious and lots of storage in the kitchen for your food. The resort was great and is very family friendly. We will keep this on our list of must stay places.
Sharhonda H. Sep 2017
Good place in a great location. Close to Pier Park and many restaurants. The property is clean and secure.
Alli S. Aug 2017
Not very clean but besides that a very nice place.
Manager response:
We apologize if cleanliness was not up to this guest's expectations and wish they had notified us so we could have rectified the matter. We have very high cleanliness standards and work hard with housekeeping to ensure they are met. Thank you!
Khue T. Aug 2017
The property was clean with a nice view! Recommended.
Michelle S. Jul 2017
We enjoyed our trip to Emerald Beach and were very pleased with our condo.
Katherine B. Jun 2017
Wonderful family friendly place to stay. Only complaint would be the elevator wait time. Can't wait to stay again.
Lauren T. May 2017
We booked this condo extremely last minute, within 30 minutes of arriving, which was great. It came with free covered garage parking. The place was great for what we needed. AMAZING views that pictures cannot do justice. There were a few minor things, such as a broken bathtub drain cover and missing a few things in the kitchen. But nothing we couldn't live without. Would definitely stay here again on our next trip.
Shirley R. May 2017
We picked the ideal place to relax and enjoy the scenic ocean view. Great places to eat. Everything right at your fingertips.
Chelsea D. May 2017
The location of the condo is perfect! Right in the center of all the activities in PCB. The condo has a lot of amenities (Starbucks, beach chairs to rent, parasail/banana boat booth, ice cream shop, etc). The pool was very nice and clean. The only complaint we had was that the air was set to cut off and would be 76 degrees throughout the day and night so we would get pretty warm. Would've liked to be able to come inside to cool off and not burn up.
Cindi L. May 2017
Vacasa does not have a hands on approach with the upkeep or cleanliness of the condos they rent. They are great with the computer/telephone aspects of customer care but have no clue when it comes to the actual rental property. Be prepared to do some housework when you arrive and overlook the signs or property misuse and neglect and you will be thrilled.....otherwise rent from an independent owner!
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed and will follow up with housekeeping.
Joyce P. May 2017
Very much enjoyed our stay! The staff was very pleasant and helped with whatever we needed! The view was beautiful and the beach was so close.
Mariceli O. Apr 2017
I'm glad we went beach front was amazing
Erika M. Mar 2017
My husband and I loved it :)
Noah L. Mar 2017
Great location, everything you need is provided. Very clean and comfortable. Views couldn't be better!
Mylisa L. Mar 2017
The most pleasurable experience we've had at PCB. No checkin required because everything was completed ahead of time. Extremely clean. No issues what so ever. We will be back.
Nick K. Jan 2017
We had a very good time
Chad S. Jan 2017
Emerald Beach resort is awesome
David C. Nov 2016
This rental was in the perfect spot. Very close to the state parks and many restaurants. The place was nicely decorated and we were pleased with the extras (soap, shampoo, beach towels, etc.) that were supplied. The building that the rental is in was clean and the people were very polite.
Our only disappointment was that one of the chairs on the balcony was broken so we could not sit together at the table to enjoy our coffee and stare at the ocean in the morning.
Kenneth S. Sep 2016
Nicely decorated, and very clean. Loved the balcony overlooking the Gulf.... perfect little getaway.
Wanda C. Sep 2016
this condo was wonderful and spacious, clean and beautiful the staff was so very kind and helpful, came out to our car loaded our bags and took them o our room . Pools on both sides , store and coffee shop and bars so very nice will definitely go back sooner than later
Brittany B. Sep 2016
Very nice property. Had a starbucks and a shop in it. Chairs were available to rent and had stand to parasail and banana boat on the property. The condo was nice. Plenty of room for 4 people. Might be bit crowded for 6. The kitchen was stocked with every appliance you might need on your stay. Daily housekeeping wasn't included which was a bummer because sand, towels, and trash piled up. If big group, recommend getting trash bags at store because they didn't have any extras in the unit. Overall, it was a relaxing time!
Kayla B. Aug 2016
Unit was very nice, just a few minor things that can be changed for a better experience.
Deborah M. Aug 2016
This is my first time booking with Vacasa. My husband I came to the beach to celebrate my Birthday and had a great stay. The Condo was nice and clean, the bed comfortable. The only drawback was a chair that was ripped at the table on the balcony but I called the manager about it when we noticed it and hopefully that will be dealt with quickly for the next renters. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this condo.
Amy S. Jun 2016
Love the condo! Nice! Plenty of room for four people! Was clean!
Melisa Y. Jun 2016
We just returned from our PCB vacation. I couldn't be happier with our stay at Emerald Beach. The condo is very comfortable and spacious. We have a family of six: myself, husband, three 14 yr olds and an 11 year old, so this unit fit our budget while still providing us enough space. We did pack a queen air mattress for the trip for the additional sleeping. My son said the pull out sofa was nice and comfy. The master bedroom is nice with a comfy bed and the bathroom has a large garden tub (which I enjoyed very much after a long day on the beach). The kitchen offers the basics. I would suggest checking the pots and pans before planning meals if you're eating in. Also make sure to pack tin foil, plastic wrap, and ziploc bags. Loved having the washer and dryer, it works great. And everyone's favorite... the balcony. I enjoyed my morning coffee watchng the waves come in. When we were in the unit, someone was always on the balcony. The location is great. I was even comfortable with the kids walking the beach and the resort without us as long as they stayed together. There is a miniature golf and go kart place within walking distance. Pier Park is a very short drive away, which offers quite a few shops and places to eat. I am very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend to others!
Mauricio M. Jun 2016
We had a very nice vacations with the family easy acces to parking lot ,clean rooms and very friendly peoples there thanks for every thing and we will back on the next vacations ????????????
Katherine B. Jun 2016
We enjoyed our stay. Cannot wait until our next vacation!!!
Kyle M. May 2016
Me and wife had great time, good location and enjoyed ourselves. Had no problems with place, but the drain in master bath was draining slow prolly only from sand, and one of the chairs on balcony needs replaced because someone before us set down hard and its ripping. Other than that great place and I would stay again.
Shane M. May 2016
We will be back soon and hopefully stay in the same room next time.
Sierra B. May 2016
Great location and great room! Would definitely recommend
Kenzy L. Apr 2016
Our condo was gorgeous ! The entire resort was clean and the staff were very friendly. We plan to stay here every year !
Kaysi I. Apr 2016
For the rate/room/VIEW/dining/ALL THE ABOVE I would rate this place a 10 out of 10. Very clean, very well kept. WE WILL BE BACK ASAP!
Misty H. Apr 2016
I booked this at the last min. For the price we paid and the location it was perfect! It didn't break our budget and it was a really nice condo for our family. We will be coming back!
Connie C. Mar 2016
We enjoyed the location and the room was clean and had everything you could possibly need to cook with. Would have appreciated better service from Vasca
Manager response:
We regret to see that you were not more impressed with our services. We are currently hiring more employees for the phones and in the fields in order to be more attentive to our guests' needs.
Allison B. Mar 2016
Comfortable, nice, with updated decor. Loved the washer dryer in unit. Bed VERY comfy. Balcony views were amazing!!!! Could use a deep clean,but overall wonderful! Thanks for sharing your home. We will return.
Nola E. Mar 2016
We had an awesome time....looking forward to next year!!
Chad M. Feb 2016
It was a very nice condo.. Emerald Beach is a great place to stay. Just need a new door lock.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. The Property Manager will inspect the door lock and replace it if necessary. We hope to see you again!
Lynne A. Nov 2015
We were very pleased with the condo. Just had a problem with noise from bikers and with red tide.
Justine P. Aug 2015
I have to admit I was a little nervous when I arrived due to some of the previous reviews. I had trouble getting into my room due to the owner changing the door code and not informing me but once I called Vacasa they immediately contacted them and called me back within 3 minutes!! Once I got inside the room was extremely nice and clean. The room and hotel definitely exceeded my expectations! I would definitely recommend this room if you looking to stay somewhere nice with a perfect view!
