Perfect for a small family! Renovated May 2024!

Updated May 2024 with new tile walk-in shower, LVP flooring, quartz countertops, tile backsplash, and paint throughout!  Check out our walk-thru video:

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 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.  However, please note that the upper bunk is designed for children, and is not ideal for adults. The unit is Fire Marshall approved for five guests.   

Flat screen televisions in the living room and master bedroom.  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, Keurig 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:  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, four beach chairs, and a beach cart are also available for your use. 
This is a quiet complex with easy park-at-your-door access.  We are on the second floor in a building with a total of 12 units.  

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.

A required $20 per person amenity fee covers use of all recreational facilities.   A visitor Parking Pass is required as well, and the cost is $25 per vehicle. 

Please note that rental golf carts are not permitted on the property. 
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!

We didn't want to leave!    Jun 09, 2019

We absolutely loved your place. It was so welcoming and inviting. You guys have a beautiful place and very well maintained. It’s the best vacation experience we’ve ever had. I’m kind of OCD about cleaning lol. We were already talking about staying at your place again next time we come back. We DIDN’T want to leave at all :( Thank you so much for letting us stay and we will definitely be back.

Good Location.. Great Experience    Aug 03, 2017

review star

For my first time renting a private condo, 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.

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!

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!

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.

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 was GREAT! We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect location and close to beach!    Jun 21, 2015

review star

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!

My experience with Mrs. Susan was awesome! She was very kind from the first contact to the last. The condo was spacious, decorated perfectly, and probably the cleanest condo I have ever stayed in. The area was very quiet and peaceful. The kids loved the choices of the different pools on the property. We would definitely stay here again!

Susan and Roger have a beautiful home and everything was perfect. They make sure their guest have everything they need for a perfect beach vacation, from beach chairs and umbrella to even a cooler! The condo was spacious and with my 13 year old granddaughter and 2 10 year old grandsons that counted for a lot! Everything from the wonderful kitchen, huge king sized bed, bunk beds for the boys, washer and dryer use, to the beloved turtle pond (those turtles must have gained 5 lbs from the bread balls the boys tossed to them!) just off the balcony. The short walk to the beach on beach days and the pool just across the parking lot, I could go on and on but you really need to rent it and see for yourself! Couldn't have been more pleased with our first trip to Florida. The children are already planning their next trip and a very large part of that is due to Susan and Roger!

Our experience with Susan and Roger was perfect. From the first time I contacted them, Susan responded immediately. She is super nice and very easy to communicate with. From the moment that we entered the unit, I knew this was our kind of place. It is decorated wonderfully. Standing in any room I knew I was at the beach. The unit is very spacious. There were five of us, my husband and myself, (2) 18 yr olds and my mother. We had more than enough room. The kitchen was fully stocked. The beds, including the pull out sofa, were so comfortable. The balcony/porch was our morning highlight. My mother and myself would sit out on the porch with our coffee and watch the turtles in the pond. My mother isn't much on staying on the beach all day, so with this unit being located at the front and in front of the pond, it was perfect for her. There is no waiting on elevators and no hiking to your car. I can go on and on about this unit, but just know you will not be disappointed.

This condo was perfect for our family of 4. The condo was beautifully decorated, comfortable, and clean. The best part was sitting out on the balcony and watching the turtles in the pond. Susan and Roger were so nice and easy to work with. It is just a short walk to the beach or the pool. We have stayed at Horizon South many times and this was the best condo that we have ever rented! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone :)

Home Away From Home    Feb 14, 2015

review star

Susan and Roger set out to have the décor bring the feel of the sunny, white sand beach inside the condo. They certainly succeeded! It was especially important to us, because the weather prevented us from experiencing the real thing. After driving from Michigan through unfavorable conditions, it was literally a breath of fresh air walking into the main room. We have all seen the plaques with the saying, "Relax, You're At The Beach Now", well need I say more? There was every convenience of home you could need, plus some. The bed was wonderfully comfortable, I was asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow and slept through each night. That might not mean much to you, but take it from someone with a bad back, it was marvelous. The kitchen was set up like I would set my kitchen up at home. I was very disappointed that we could not find an affordable place on the Gulf, but the first time I walked out on the terrace, that disappointment faded away with the beautiful view. The view through the palm trees actually enhanced the vista. I would recommend this property to anyone. Thank you, Susan and Roger!

Great unit with caring owners    Feb 01, 2015

Susan and Roger - we were pleased to be your first guests in your new beach home. You have done a great job on redoing the unit and making it very comfortable. Your attention to detail and personal touches will be well received by your guests. Everything was just as "advertised". The floor plan was well laid out and the complex looks to be well maintained. The location of your unit in the complex is definitely a plus with the Gulf view and close access to the front entrance. We love the west end of the beach and everything we needed was close by. We left a more detailed trip report in the guest book but found good places to eat everywhere we went. We hope to be able to stay with you again while our home is being built. For anyone who is looking at this VRBO listing, please know that you will not be disappointed in any way staying in this unit and dealing directly with these owners. They have everything you need for your beach vacation - just bring your towels and sunscreen ! the Nelsons Tyler, Texas


Cancellations, or changes that result in a shortened stay, made within 30 days of the arrival date forfeit the rental fee portion of the nights canceled. The deposit and cleaning fee will be returned.  Guests will also be refunded for any canceled nights that are booked by others. 
Ours is a self-check in process.  Prior to your check-in time, you will be provided the current gate code and key lock box code.  The key lock box is located on the door frame at the front door.  This information will not be provided before your date of arrival due to the possibility of departing guests checking out the same day and time allotted for the cleaning crew to prepare the unit.  
Deposits are fully refundable pending no damage to condo/contents, it is not left excessively dirty, no evidence of pets or smoking in the unit, and Checkout Check List procedures are completed.  Deposits are refunded upon notice from the cleaning inspector that all is in order, generally within 48 hours of check-out.  Please note that the cleaning company sends before and after pictures for every rental.  Unless otherwise requested, refund will be made in the manner in which it was received.
Check-in is after 3 p.m. CST.  Check-out is 10 a.m. CST.   Due to cleaning schedules, early check-ins and/or late check-outs must be approved and are subject to additional charges.   We strive to be fair and accommodating for special circumstances.  

While linens and bath and kitchen towels are provided (sleeper sofa sheets and pillows are in the master closet), daily maid service is not included in the rental rate.  The washer and dryer are provided for your use if you need to wash towels or sheets during your stay.   Please bring beach towels for use on the beach or at the pool as bath towels and linens are not to be taken from the condo.

There is no landline telephone in the unit.
For the kitchen, one roll of paper towels and two dishwasher tabs or powder packets are provided.  For each bathroom, one roll of toilet paper is provided.  The tub/shower and each bathroom sink will have one small travel-sized bar of soap.  Each trashcan will be provided with two trash can liners.  Please bring or be prepared to purchase locally any additional items you think you will need.  
Cash, check, PayPal, Zelle, CashApp, or Venmo.  For PayPal or Zelle, use  For Venmo, use @SusanMillerTCB.  For CashApp, use $SusanMillerTCB.  Any fees charged by PayPal (or any other payment method) which reduce the amount due will be held from the deposit.  PayPal charges approximately 3% for use of debit & credit cards, if Buyer Protection is purchased, and/or if sent via Goods and Services instead of Friends and Family.  Documentation of any fees withheld will be provided.
We are a private owner renting our personal home, and try to keep things simple for everyone.  All information will be confirmed in writing via email. Once the reservation deposit has been received, the calendar will show that the dates are no longer available for others looking for accomodations.  
At the recommendation of cleaning companies and due to a firm agreement with our cleaners, we do not accept pets under any circumstances.  When introduced to a new environment, housetraining is not guaranteed – even spayed or neutered dogs might mark an area to "protect his pack.”  Separation anxiety presents another risk.  In a previously owned rental property, we arrived to discover the door frame destroyed by an otherwise well-behaved dog.
The rental quote is comprised of the base rental amount and a $100 cleaning fee which is a pass-through charge.  No money is made on the cleaning fee.  The tax rate for "transient rentals" is 13%.  No booking fees are charged.  Not included in the rental fee is a $5 per person amenity fee that is paid upon arrival at the security or main office, and for which wrist bands and a parking pass are received.  This fee is out of our control.  It ensures that only HS guests are using the facilities. 
The reservation/damage deposit and 50% of the rental amount is due at booking.  The requested dates will not be blocked until the deposit is received.  The remaining balance is due no later than 30 days in advance of the check-in date.  
Unlike a hotel, we have just one property to rent for the nights requested.  If a guest does not follow through with rental and payment, we lose the opportunity to rent the condo for those dates to someone else.  Payment in advance is the norm for private condo rental with most requiring 100% at booking.
The beach is about a 2-3 minute walk from the condo.  Our building is the closest to the beach in the Horizon South complex and you can see the Gulf from the balcony and living room.  Here's a video of the actual walk to copy/paste into your browser:  
There are four pools in Horizon South; three at the main clubhouse in the center of the complex, and one on the newer south end.  We are locacted about 30-40 yards from the newer pool on the south end of the complex. 
Horizon South is located at 17462 Front Beach Road, about a half mile west of Highway 79.  It is right across from the Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort.  The condo is in Building 60 - Unit 204, which is the first building on the left after entering the complex from Front Beach Road.  Buildings 57, 59, and 60 are the closest to the beach in Horizon South.  Buildings 59 and 60 ovelook the Turtle Pond.
