Thank you for clicking through to view additional details about our personal beach retreat. To improve the chance of your reservation request being accepted, please tell us a little about yourself. What brings you to Panama City Beach, who’s joining you, etc. We believe this is a reasonable request, and a courtesy we would happily extend if inquiring about staying in your home. Thank you!

This second floor, one bedroom, 1.5 bath unit is tastefully furnished and decorated, and freshly stocked with everything you need for your home away from home. The master bedroom has a king sized bed. There's a commercial-grade queen sleeper in the living room and two built-in bunks in the hallway - with privacy curtains. The addition of privacy curtains makes a neat 'fort' for the little ones and affords a secluded and more private sleeping space for those of all ages. Please note that the upper bunk is designed for children, and is not ideal for adults. For that reason, we reserve the option of renting to a maximum of five adults.

Flat screen televisions and DVD players in the living room and master bedroom. The bedroom TV and the living room DVD player are both 'smart' for Internet streaming. Wi-Fi is included as well!

Washer, dryer, ironing board, and iron in the unit. There is an ice-maker in the freezer, and the kitchen is fully stocked with place settings for 10, flatware for 12, coffee maker, electric griddle (pancakes, anyone?), rice steamer (great for shrimp, too!), toaster, can opener, crock pot, pots, pans, mixing and serving bowls, and kitchen utensils.

You can feed the turtles from your balcony because the turtle pond with fountain features is located just outside your beach-side door. You can't get any closer to the beach in Horizon South, and you can see the Gulf from your living room and outside balcony (Check out a video of the actual walking distance to the beach: http://youtu.be/2MldniYwNpI) A beach cart is included in the rental for taking your beach gear just across the street where Horizon South has deeded beach access. A beach umbrella and four beach chairs are also available for your use.

This is a quiet complex with easy park-at-your-door access.

Horizon South is a family-oriented, gated community located on the quiet west end of the beach. It is popular with long term vacation renters (snowbirds) and permanent retiree residents, which provides for a more stable and secure environment. There are four pools (one heated in the winter), a hot tub, shuffleboard, basketball and tennis courts, pool tables in the clubhouse, a workout room with equipment, and a miniature putt-putt course located on the premises. Putters and golf balls are available in the condo for your use on the putt-putt course.

We do not have multiple beach rental properties, and this not a business for us. This unit is our personal vacation home we share with others who are looking for spacious, clean, comfortable, and convenient accommodations on beautiful Panama City Beach

The condo was awesome. It was beautifully decorated in a beach motif.

The condo is spacious. It is such a short walk to the beach. It is located close to shopping and restaurants. The owners are so very nice and accommodating. This was my first trip to PCB and it will not be my last. I can't wait to come back next year!

Owner's Response:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your kind review. We hope you will stay with us on your next visit to PCB!

Good Location.. Great Experience

They were quick to respond when I have questions. Beach was a short walk away and Pier Park was 5min drive. My girls had an awesome time and even called this our "vacation home". Had couple problems with trying to get an armband because there was no one around to buy them so we was there for a few days without having the armbands but to our surprise there wasn't people checking. And our kitchen light went out the first night but we manage and didn't ruin our experience. We will definitely rent them next year or in the future because we had a great time.

Owner's Response:

Thank you for your review! Tell your girls we would love for them to call this their vacation home, and we hope they come back again soon. I apologize for the burned out overhead kitchen light. Maintenance said they would take care of it, but we will certainly keep replacement bulbs on hand and be more diligent in following up on these things in the future. We are so glad you had a wonderful time and were happy to share our home with you. Regards, Susan and Roger

Great place to stay! Clean and a great location!

My family and I enjoyed our stay in Susan and Roger's condo. It was clean and well kept. It had everything we needed. We loved the proximity to the beach and to all the local dining. It's also close to Scenic 30A if you want to drive into Destin for the day! Thank you Susan and Roger! We hope to stay again in your lovely condo..

Owner's Response:

Thank you very much for your kind comments. It was a pleasure having you as our guests. We love the location as well, and are glad you found it to be so convenient. We look forward to hearing from you next time you planning a PCB trip! Susan and Roger

Great visit.

Nicest place we have stayed intea PCB. If you need a small place that feels like home and very short walk to beach..this is it. Highly recommend. The owners are fantastic!

Owner's Response:

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay, and for the kind words. We were so pleased to have your family as our guest. Please come back again soon! Susan and Roger

3rd year at Horizon South and absolutely love it here! First year in the Miller's beautifully appointed, very clean, updated, lovely condo overlooking canal. Beautiful place, location is perfect and wonderful owners that treated us very well in every way. Thank you so much Susan and Roger. Look forward to our return next year.

Wow...just wow!

What a beautiful condo! Our family had a blast this year! Location was great, short stroll to the beach & lots of fun for the kiddos on site & food & shops nearby! Susan (&Roger;) were wonderful to work with made the entire trip a breeze & they were very accommodating, went above all expectations! One of our favorite trips during our stay was to St. Andrews state park ... If you have younger children ... We took ours snorkeling there with the jetty little to no waves to knock them down & beautiful ocean life!!! Thanks again for sharing your beautiful condo!!

Beach Fans

We would give this condo a very good rating! The location is great and we loved having a view of the ocean. The walk to the beach was a breeze. The interior is decorated with a beachy casual design which feels very comfortable. We really enjoyed the terrace. The palm trees are at the perfect height for bird watching. The turtle pond was an added bonus. When we were initially inquiring about the condo we found the owners to be responsive and helpful. They also are genuinely interested in your experience.

Owner's Response:

Lisa and Morgan, Thank you so much for selecting our condo for your recent stay, and for taking the time to provide a review of our property. I know others will find it helpful in making their decision. We sincerely hope you will stay with us again and are happy to have you as a member of our guest family! All the best, Susan and Roger

Susan and Roger are great people to rent from. We really appreciated the quick response time when we had to contact them. The condo was the perfect size for our two children ages 27 and 22, my husband and myself. The condo was beautifully decorated and so neat and clean. The distance to the beach was a short walk with easy access...it was GREAT! We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response:

Lori, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and were happy with the accommodations! We sincerely appreciate that you selected our condo for your family vacation and look forward to hearing from you for your next trip to Panama City Beach. I know we are all so busy, so THANK YOU for taking the time to write a review, too! :-) Warm regards, Susan and Roger

Perfect location and close to beach!

This is a late review. Our trip was back in late June. The condo was perfect for our vacation. There were five of us and we had plenty of sleeping space with the two bunk beds, couch, and bedroom. The condo was nicely decorated and clean. We had no problems with the condo at all. We had friends staying in the Sandpiper so being so close was awesome! There were two beach chairs, an umbrella, and a cart to transport it all to the beach and back. That was nice as we don't have that sort of thing living in Arkansas. Susan was extremely nice and helpful with questions we had prior to arriving. From initial contact, which her response was almost immediate, she always answered emails promptly. I would recommend this condo for anyone that doesn't want the hassle or expense of a resort or hotel. This was our first experience with VRBO and Susan made it a tremendous experience. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to PCB.....and also never stay in a hotel again while on vacation!

Owner's Response:

Hi, Jason - Thanks so much for taking the time to provide a review, and thank you for your kind comments. We are so glad you enjoyed the property and would absolutely love for you and your family to stay with us again. We agree that VRBO is the way to go! In fact, that's how we originally discovered Horizon South ourselves. We appreciate that you selected our condo and hope to hear from you when you determine your travel dates for next summer! All the best, Susan (and Roger)
