With so much footage of private beach, it is not over crowded. Dunes of Panama is also located on the Quiet, family side of Panama City Beach, FL.  The complex is also family friendly, which we admire so much. We have rented in the Dunes of Panama for over 10+ years & love the complex. We feel totally safe & secure in the complex especially w/our kids!  We were able to be blessed in purchasing a great unit in late Oct 2019.

Take advantage of renting directly from the owners & saving money w/o all those expensive hidden fees from other sites.  No hassling with front desk check in's or check out's.

We take pride in our unit, and ask the same respect from our guest.  As former renters, we have experienced the difference from personal condo owners, who take pride in their units, versus rentals who only care about the minimal accommodations for filling a unit. We want to make sure your stay & vacation is what you needed to destress from the hustle & bustle of life. So come soak up the sun, salt air & gulf breezes at 'Our Home Away from Home', Serenity Beach Living.

AMAZING!! The condo, the view & the owner!!!    Oct 08, 2020

review star

This condo is beautifully decorated and very clean with all the essentials and so much more! Super family friendly with lots of board games, a gaming tv, boogie boards, and even beach towels! The view is perfect for watching the sunsets. Melissa was very attentive and responsive! We loved everything about it!

AMAZING!    Sep 06, 2020

I’ve known Melissa since high school and when she pursed her dream and made it a reality I knew I had to plan a trip. Because of COVID-19 we didn’t have a lot of options, so I figured now is as good of time as any. I spoke with Melissa and made the arrangements. The best part was it was so simple, no hassle at all. Melissa sent me the exact directions, very easy to find. Melissa made herself available 24/7. She checked on us throughout the stay and even sent a text wishing us safe travels home. The condo is magnificent. It’s in a great area with stores and restaurants while located right on the beach. Spacious and cozy, the décor is absolutely gorgeous. The beds are comfortable, the condo hosts a charming kitchen with all of the amenities. I definitely highly recommend! The condo overlooks one of the 3 pools and the beach and it has one of the most stunning sunsets I’ve ever seen. The photos do NOT reflect or capture how CLEAN, spacious and delightful the condo really is. I’m so excited (and jealous) for my longtime friend. Melissa is not only a friend, but a gracious host. It is quite evident that she has put a lot of work & love into Serenity Beach Living. The only negative: NOT ENOUGH TIME. Thank you and we will defiantly be back…

Lauria - So sweet of you! So happy you & hubby had a fabulous time!! Yes a lot of work & pride has gone into the condo down to every last detail. We strive to make sure our guests have a relaxed & easy vacation w/o hassles.

We always hear, not enough time, LOL.. That is what makes it special, so you all can come back & enjoy too our slice of paradise over & over :)

AMAZING TIME at this condo! Had EVERYTHING & more we needed    Aug 08, 2020

review star

We had an amazing time here! The booking, check in and check out, all went smoothly. The condo is very clean and very spacious. Very beautifully decorated and stocked with most the same amenities you would have in your own personal home. The grounds were beautifully landscaped, maintained and kept clean! Hours of operations were perfect from morning until night. Security was visible on premises on a regular shcedule. It's inviting, laid back and very relaxing. We always had contact with Melissa 24/7 and if we couldn't find something, she was so very helpful in every aspect of the trip to make sure we did. Bring your family, pets and friends(if you like them good enough lol) or just yourself! Nothing was disappointing here!!!! We highly highly recommend Serenity Beach Living; Dunes of Panama- PCB Vacation Condo Rental!!!!

MELISSA BARNET's reply:

Best Beach Condo Ever!    Aug 04, 2020

review star

This was our 3rd time staying in Melissa's beach condo in PCB-right on the beach! The view is priceless-a little slice of heaven! Melissa is so easy to work with and the condo has all the comforts of home. The sheets on the beds are fabulous! (need to know where you got them!) The new colors on the walls and in the condo have that beachy cottage feel! Thank you for sharing your dream with others! We look forward to our 4th visit in the upcoming months!

Melissa’s property is gorgeous! The condo is so clean and has everything you can want from an instapot to a crockpot to silverware for your entire family. I love having a keurig to use also! The view is spectacular & the short walk to the beach is a huge plus. We will be renting from you again. One of our best vacations.

MELISSA BARNET's reply:

Missy So glad you all had a GREAT vacation!!! We look forward to having you all return anytime! I am very thankful to have a fabulous housekeeper who makes sure w/o a doubt my unit is super clean & immaculate. Like you all said on the phone, the pics do not do the unit justice. We do make sure our guests have pretty much everything they could possibly need just like at home. It makes a better stay for our guests & everyone appreciates the extras we provide We look forward to you all coming back soon!

Beautiful condo!    Jul 19, 2020

review star

This condo is even more beautiful in person than the pictures show!! We loved staying here and loved the fact that we were able to bring my daughter’s sweet fur baby. The condo was decorated so pretty and had everything we could possibly need to cook and there were a lot of extra things available to use that most condos don’t have. You can tell that Melissa and her husband have put a lot of of time and hard work into redoing the condo and making it feel like home. Melissa was an amazing hostess! She was always so helpful and checked on us to make sure that everything was great. She was the best owner i have ever dealt with when renting a condo!! We loved the location and the view from the condo! We had a wonderful trip!

MELISSA BARNET's reply:

Tammi, So glad you all had a great time! I agree the pictures do not do the inside justice!! We do make sure everyone has enough of the extras like at home available. It just makes the trip for our guests more pleasurable We look forward to your future trips with us :)

I loved this condo and it's owner!    Jul 05, 2020

review star

I originally picked this condo bc I needed a pet friendly one but it was more than that. It had everything I wanted and then some. The location of the condo was perfect. I have had multiple spine surgeries and was very worried I would have trouble walking much of a distance to get to the pool and/or the beach. But the pool and beach are both right there at the condo so I really didn't have much trouble walking at all except in the actual sand. Lol. I also liked that I was able to let my 13 yr old son go down to the pool some on his own bc I was so close that I could sit on the balcony and watch him play with other kids. The inside is very spacious and has pretty much anything you will need. We really didn't eat out a lot bc we had a full kitchen with anything you would need. When I first booked it I asked if there happened to be a Air fryer. She ordered one and had it there before we even checked in! Melissa was so kind and checked on us a few times during our stay to make sure we were all good and to see if we needed anything. In fact, after arriving I had messaged her about a cord that my son needed to hook up his Xbox to her gaming tv and when she realized he didn't have that cord she had one sent to the office right away. It was there within 2 days. I can not say enough nice things about Melissa and her beautiful condo. I hope and pray I can make a return visit to this same condo very soon.

MELISSA BARNET's reply:

Simone, We are thrilled you all had a great time & that everything was close for you to get to!! We like to make sure everyone has a great experience like they are at home, but w/a better view, LOL Having 2 teenagers myself, I know having certain cords to gaming systems are a must, especially when needing down time from them of being in the water or the go-go all day. You are so kind w/your review, I love the fact that Brayden is ready to go again, LOL Once you start one beach trip, they become VERY addicting! We look forward to having you all back soon!!

This is such a beautiful condo!!    Jun 27, 2020

review star

Our time in this condo was nothing short of amazing! The view from the balcony is seriously breathtaking. The pictures don't do it justice, at all. Melissa was a such a pleasure to work with. That made the experience 10 x better! They literally thought of everything for you to use in the condo too. I know now that she wasn't joking when she said you only have to bring your clothes and beach towels. This was the easiest experience and something that I hope to continue for years to come!! Thank you so much for letting us use your little slice of paradise!

MELISSA BARNET's reply:

Lauren & Family, We are so thrilled you all had a FABULOUS vacation!!! We do try to make things as easy as possible & provide those "extra" little conveniences.

Amazing ocean and pool view from a large balcony outside, all the necessities your heart desires on the inside! Beautifully appointed, clean interior with all the touches of home, and the owners are simply delightful and easy to work with! The Dunes are incredibly well taken care of and we will be coming here again!
