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. The location is outstanding; it is conveniently located just west of Pier Park. Being situated near the end of the main strip offers all the usual conveniences of a tourist town while avoiding the major crowds. This high rise stands an impressive twenty-two stories tall and offers amazing views. On our getaway, we were situated on the 16th floor of this massive building. The balcony was spacious and comfortable, it was beautifully decorated, and it was the perfect spot to enjoy my morning coffee. However, the 16th floor was on the cusp of being too high to fully enjoy the view. It is my experience that a beach-front balcony offers the best view when staying on the 7th-10th floor. 

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 most 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 found this property on Vrbo and drawn to it 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. The owner gave us a call during booking, she was friendly, knowledgeable, and stayed in touch throughout the trip. The condo was well stocked with the usual amenities and even had beach items such as chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and sand buckets. This amazing vacation getaway is clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated with many inspirational items. It is noticeable that the owner has gone above and beyond to ensure you have an enjoyable stay.

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. 

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? 

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.
