“Ocean Reef = Stress Relief {*_*}”

We truly enjoyed our Ocean Reef experience from start to finish. Making reservations was hassle free. The Johnsons provided detailed information well in advance of our trip, so once we got there we were able to settle in with no problem. Everything was just as advertised and we truly felt at home right away.

We picked a great time to visit the area and the condo is in a great spot. If you want to shop or eat you are very close to Pier Park Shopping Center, home to many nice stores and eateries, the Mall, a really nice Cinema, Walmart, Target....the list goes on and on! Anything you need is less than 5-10 minutes away.

If you want to just kick back and relax, the condo being on the 21st floor allows you to enjoy beautiful views of the water and beach from the awesome balcony. Enjoying the sun and ocean breeze was so refreshing!

This condo is definitely a winner in my book and we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this location to couples or families. The Johnsons really deliver on making their home away from home, your home away from home!

One last note: As an added bonus to your stay, take the beautiful drive down scenic Hwy 30a! It's easy to find, just minutes away from the condo, and well worth the detour off the main highway! {*_*}

The condo is very nice. Plenty of room and comfy furniture. The king bed is to die for. Loved that it was right on the beach and had everything you needed. The balcony was a relaxing getaway on 3 somewhat cool and windy days. We enjoyed our stay and would love to stay there again.

“Great condo”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The location could not have been better everything was better than described.
My wife was ecstatic with the décor and the sunsets every evening.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to visit panama city beach.
The only thing lacking was some pot holders which I went out and purchased and left for the next renters it was the least we could do for mr .Johnson.
Thank you,
mr and mrs wittmann

The Good: For a condo beach experience, it was nice. We had a great time so long as the visitor knows they are getting a "condo experience". The location was extremely good. The condo abode itself is well maintained and is obviously someones well-taken-care-of 2nd home. There are family photos around that let you know. The living area furniture wasn't very comfortable, but that's a minor issue. Also, the kitchen bar stools were very short making it impractical to eat using them. I give the owners thumbs up! The view from the balcony was wonderful.

Everything you need in the condo is there. The owners had that covered.

The Bad: It wasn't perfect. It was a condo experience.

Parking is tricky in a tight garage and our space was on the 5th floor which meant navigating 5 floors of tight, tight turns which for even smaller cars can really only handle one direction on the turns. Don't bring a second car because it's hard to find a place to park it (in July). There is extra parking across Frontbeach, but it was full the entire time. We had to put the extra car much farther away.

The beach. There is a strange drainage pipe on the beach coming from the building that isn't sewage but still has a baking yuck smell coming from the water in it. Also, as with most condo experiences, the beach in front of the condo was highly populated and we had to walk a good ways to get away from the crowd.

The pool/hot tub. The condo pool is very small and highly populated during the day as well with little kids (ages 4-10)... as well as the hot tub... 3-4 kids in it even at night, so don't expect a relaxing hot tub to end the day... we avoided the pool / hot tub just for this reason.

The ocean was full of algae or some kind of sea grass all the days we were there but we do recognize the beach water fluctuates over a season and this is probably a temporary condition. Either way, it was kiddy pool or algae for swimming. We went with the algae.

The elevators don't know when they are full (they need a weight sensor and just go by when full)... and so, stopping on every floor on the way down gets old just for people to see it's full. The last day, we waited 10-15 minutes just to get an elevator, it was full, waiting again... finally, and then the ride down was stop every floor. Also, the elevators do not have air so they are hot and stuffy. The fans weren't even on, so it was stuffy sweaty in there and always a relief to get off the elevators. So, just because this place advertises fast elevators, they aren't fast if they have to stop on every floor.
