The Celadon, Panama City Beach Florida

Vacasa’s Celadon is a beautiful high-rise beach resort located on the white sands of Panama City Beach Florida. It is conveniently located just west of Pier Park, towards the end of the strip. The location is outstanding; it is convenient to everything and allows you to avoid the major crowds. The high rise stands an impressive twenty-two stories tall and offers amazing views. On our stay, we were situated on the 16th floor. The balcony was nice, but it was on the cusp of being too high to fully enjoy. In my experience, balconies usually offer the best views when staying on the 7th-10th floors. 

The Celadon offers several amenities, heated indoor/outdoor pools, hot tubs, workout facility, and event space. During our visit, one of the two heated pools was closed for maintenance. This was unfortunate for us since it happened to be the indoor pool. We visited during the off-season and the indoor pool was a large part of our decision to stay at the Celadon. On the plus side, the larger of the two pools and the two hot tubs were still operational and we had perfect weather for the majority of our trip. 

The Celadon hosts a large number of privately owned beach-front condominiums. For this reason, making reservations can be done through Vacasa’s website or a third-party site such as Vrbo. We were drawn to this property on Vrbo due to the high number of outstanding reviews. Any property with over 100 positive reviews is a no-brainer. After staying here for the week, I can honestly say that the positive reviews are well deserved. Cynthia, the owner gave us a call during booking. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and stayed in touch throughout the trip. Her condo is stocked with many of the usual beach items such as, chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and sand buckets for the kids. This amazing vacation getaway is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated with many inspirational items.

Elsa's, Beach Cove Resort, North Myrtle Beach Condo

Elsa’s, Beach Cove Resort, North Myrtle Beach Condo

Offered by Prista Vacation Rentals

Weeks away from our trip and we decided to add a few more days of fun and relaxation. We went back to the drawing board and that's when we found Elsa’s, at the lovely Beach Cove Resort, offered by Prista Vacation Rentals 

The booking process is a bit cumbersome. After several emails and several signatures, it felt as if we were purchasing the beachfront condo rather than renting it. The agreements were so much that it made me a bit uncomfortable. I mean seriously, eleven emails and a ten-page contract are a bit much. 

Beach Cove Resort - Pools and Lazy River

This oceanfront condo is located on the third floor. The third-floor parking garage removes the need to use the elevator and makes loading and unloading a breeze. The condo was perfect, spacious, two TVs, a full kitchen, and Wi-Fi. What more could anyone need except for a beach and a pool? 
Elsa's full kitchen area

Well, this place has both. It is located steps from the sand and the resort offers three pools, three hot tubs, and a 350 ft. lazy river. At the time of our visit, the hot tub located in the kid's area was out of service, but we were spoiled by the remaining two. 

Everything within the scope of Prista Vacation Rentals was excellent. The condominium was just the right size for a family of three and is very conveniently located to many top tourist attractions in North Myrtle beach. We enjoyed this cozy condo so much that we may put this in our vacation rotation.
