Do you want a great beach? Do you want a great resort property? Well then you want Emerald Isle! It’s located on the best beach in the world - Panama City Beach; and you get to see it from your own private balcony! What a spot! Emerald Isle is a unique luxury condominium in Panama City Beach. It’s full of great amenities like:
• 300 feet of white sand beaches
• Two fabulous large pools (one indoor/outdoor and one indoor)
• A beautiful pool pavilion
• Barbecue grills
• Two beachfront hot tubs
• Pool side sauna
• State of the art fitness center overlooking the beach
When you’re “beached out” (like that will happen), there is lots of other fun located right around this resort. In fact there is a new shopping experience that is close that I would like to tell you about. Pier Park is really something pretty spectacular. It is a million-plus square food shopping area (like a mall at the beach)! It has ton of stuff: Dillards, Target, JC Penny, Ron Jon (my second home), a 16 screen movieplex, all kinds of restaurants, Panera Bread for a quick bite, Longhorn Steakhouse & Outback. And get this - there is a Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville, you know, "it’s 5 o’clock somewhere"! And, if you want a Café American Double Shot Vente there is Starbucks. Can you imagine? Starbucks in flip flops! Oh, and during the summer there is going to be free concerts for the whole family. How cool is that?!?
If you’re coming down for a kid sports tournament, you’re pretty close to the Robert Brown Park, where they host a lot of tournaments.
Here’s the scoop on the condo:
Man this place is something else! Check out the photographs of the décor. It is a contemporary upscale nautical theme. It really makes the most of the space in every room. There’s plenty of space for all your beach stuff, but that’s not why you’ll pick this condo. It’s got great views, plain and simple.
The living room sofa is big and comfortable and opens into a Queen sleeper. The entertainment center, a 35" TV. The DVD player lets you play movies when you’re beached out. Or, surf the net with the high speed connection. But, I gotta tell you, the views are gonna make all that pretty tough. You’re eyes will wonder to the beach every time. You’ll like the balcony, too. It’s really comfortable. And the views...
Check out the master bedroom-huge king size bed with a with a beautiful Caribbean carved headboard. Look at the wall colors! What a great space. And the bed is really comfortable and really makes a statement. It’s very spacious. There’s another big TV, with cable.
The second master is really cool. More great color, another king size bed (check out the picture).
The kitchen is a beauty with an open lay out and granite counter tops. No matter whether you’re cooking your specialty or just fixing grilled cheese sandwiches you’ve got everything you need to please the family. There is a big kitchen bar with four bar chairs so you can grab a quick bit before you hit the beach.
The dining area has a big comfortable table, so everyone can have a seat at the table. No kid’s table here!
The laundry area is conveniently located to make keeping everyone in clean clothes a breeze.
These bedrooms and the pull out sleeper sofa in the living room making sleeping room for 6 with 2 full baths.
This condo is a big beautiful place at the beach. And it’s priced right too! You can’t go wrong at Emerald Isle. It’s got everything you want in

"A chance for Grandma Lou to see the grandkids and great grandkid"
Left on 09/06/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Sep 6, 2013Stayed Aug 2013
Our trip to see kids and grandkids was wonderful. This unit was the stopping place for all. We loved the beach and the pools. This place was the best for my 84 year old mother. No stairs to climb and she could watch the little ones on the beach from the balcony. This was the perfect location, good food was close by, and when needed I did some cooking. The grills by the pools were fantastic for the men to pitch in.
There were issues with the cleaning. The kitchen trash can hadn't been cleaned in forever. Mold on the inside, I did the best that I could cleaning it. The air vents hadn't been touched in months, neither had the base boards. The beds for the most part were comfortable, however, the hide-a-bed couch has a spring that is sticking out and stabbed my daughter-in-law. Some of the dishes were put away dirty, It is a good thing that I wash everything before I use it. The carpet needed a good cleaning as well. I am sure that it is difficult to keep clean through out the summer with a lot of traffic. All in all we had a great time. We liked it, my mom liked it, my daughter and her children and my son, daughter-in-law and their children liked it. We are looking forward to our next visit at Emerald Isle 2204.

Overall our stay wasn't bad but I do think we could have spent our money a little better. The room was not nasty but it was not clean up to my standards. There was alot of dust and areas of the room needed some TLC. The beds were comfortable but the furniture was very dated and beat up. I have stayed in worse but I have also stayed in much nicer. The Management company did not send me the email with the lock box code in it so I had to start calling when we got there to get into our room. I had to use the emergency number which I left a message on and was immediatly called back so that was taken care of quickly. If I could not find another room I would stay here again but only as a last resort. You can get more for your money.

This condo needs updating! The televisions are old and do not work properly and they do not have blue ray (we took our movies because we knew it was going to rain a lot and couldn't watch them). Will definitely not stay in 2204 again! The parking is great and the building is nice but the condo is not worth the money :(

Emerald Isle is located on the quiet end of PCB. I definitely would stay on this side again just because it was not hectic. Grocery store was very close and CVS. The only complaint I would have would be the sofa bed. I had guest that used it along with an air mattress and the springs popped the air mattress. I would suggest the pullout to be replaced. It also tore their sheets. The weather was horrible, but no one can control that. Other than that I would stay here again!! Read more
Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay. We will have the sofa bed mechanism replaced. We can't wait to see you at the beach again next year!!

We rented through Best Beach Getaways. They were great to deal with. The location of the condo was great - just two miles from Pier Park and on the quiet end of Front Beach Road. The pools were nice and we never had trouble finding available lounge chairs. The condo management is a bit overzealous. I received a parking violation and tow warning on our third day there because our check out date had not been validated on the parking placard - easily remedied, but annoying. The unit itself needs some TLC. The berber carpet is heavily stained in the living room and needs to be replaced. Also, the walls need to be repainted and are heavily scuffed and marked. The furniture is also suffering from a lot of wear and tear, and my children found the pull out sofa bed to be extremely uncomfortable. The unit was fairly clean, but I found hair in the master bath (floor and sink) upon arrival - and the coffee pot had molded grounds in the basket. We did get a good rate on the condo, and stayed here cheaper than we would have paid for a hotel - with a lot more space. However, until the place is spruced up (carpet and paint), I would not rent this unit again. However, I would happily rent from Best Beach Getaways again.

Every thing was wonderful, clean, well furnished and the floor plan was great! I will return to this property. My only concern was the management getting me the code to the door. I had to call and call and text and didn't get the code until at an hour before my flight came into PCB at 10:30 at nite. That made me very nervous. The people who worked at Emerald Isle were so nice and went out of their way to help in every way. The property was spotless everywhere!! Thanks

1. Nobody called my cell phone to give us the code to get into the condo. We had to stand outside with our groceries until someone called us back after I called the emergency number. 2. The internet didn't work at first and I had online classes and a midterm exam to do. 3. We got a parking ticket on our van saying we were going to get towed if we didn't show our parking pass in the window, which we didn't get. We had to pay $20 in the office to get a parking pass that was supposed to have been left on the counter of the condo. I called Best Beach Getaways several times to see about getting reimbursed for the $20 and the manager NEVER!!! called me back. Very unprofessional! I will NEVER stay there again. This is the first condo out of about 10 that we have stayed in that I would never recommend or go back to. Several things were broken in the condo and the throw rug in the master bathroom was filthy when we got in the condo. I immediately vacuumed it myself.

The actual building itself was in good shape with good location but our room had rally gone down since we last stayed. We liked the set up with the two king size beds but the furniture was just wore out. The hide-a-bed couch cushions would disappear when you set on them. Also the condo really needs paint and a good cleaning. Anyway enjoy Emerald Beach but probably last time in 2004 unless some upgrades.

Condo was clean and practical and met our expectations. Overall we were pleased with our stay. Just a couple of items that were not satisfactory, the couch bed was horrible and people had to sleep on the floor instead of the couch bed because it was so bad. The kitchen was also poorly stocked with the necessary items for cooking basic meals.
