Ocean Ritz 1601 is a beautifully appointed luxury beachfront condo with 1637 square feet. The condo is ideal for a large family and for extended multi-generational family groups. To rent this property, the primary renter must be over 25 years old and be present during the entire stay. We apologize that we are unable to accommodate college or high school spring break/graduation groups. For very large families, we can use our Condo Association to secure another unit in the building, often on the same floor.
Ocean Ritz 1601 is located on the 16th Floor at the east end of the building. There are only 3 condos per floor so there is little elevator and pedestrian traffic to disturb your peaceful vacation. We provide free parking for 3 vehicles. One vehicle may park in our Ocean Ritz reserved space under the building and 2 additional vehicles may park in the Panama City Beach city parking lot across Front Beach Road from the condo building.
Unlike many of the corporate managed units in PCB equipped strictly as rentals, we have furnished our four bedroom and four bath condo in the way our family enjoys a beach vacation getaway. The unit features unique, cozy, and comfortable beach themed furnishings, including recliners for 5 (plus additional seating) in the living room. The condo is freshly painted with a tile floor and area rugs in each room. It is well-maintained and very clean. There are comfortable beds for eight (8) people plus a pull out double sofa bed and 2 high-end electrically inflatable twin air mattresses. Guests are limited to 8 adults plus children.
All bedrooms and the living room are complete with flatscreen TVs and ceiling fans that help you cool off during those hot summer days. Each bedroom also has an additional portable fan. The entertainment center in the living room has an electric fireplace to warm up winter vacationers after a trip to our year round heated hot tub and pool. The fireplace may also be used without heat in the summer for great ambiance in the evenings.
The upgraded kitchen features stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops and is completely equipped with good quality dishes and silverware for 12, cooking utensils, coffee maker, toaster, electric mixer, blender, indoor grill, electric skillet, crock pot, and storage ware. Stainless steel cookware and bake-ware are provided. A full size washer and dryer are located in the Sea Horse bathroom.
All four clean and attractive bathrooms have a private entrance from a bedroom and include solid surface counters, combination bathtub/showers, and a wall mounted hair dryer. The bathroom in the Sea Star Grand Master Bedroom has double sinks and a jetted tub. Color-coordinated towels and other decorative accessories provide the finishing touches! There is also great water pressure and plenty of hot water to wash off the Gulf of Mexico at the end of the day. The beds are all made with high thread count color-coordinated 100% cotton sheets and plush blankets.
The very large balcony stretches outside the length of the condo with sliding door access from the living room and both master bedrooms. It features comfortable patio furniture and an outdoor dining table with a granite top that seats 8. All will enjoy watching the dolphins, pelicans, sea gulls, sting rays, and people in the Gulf and on the beach below. In summer, there is a daily parade of helicopters, boats, para sails, and airplanes, not to mention breathtaking fireworks displays on special occasions.
For your trips to the beach, we provide 6 folding beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach towels, and assorted sand toys. (These items cannot be left on the beach overnight, so please return them to the condo each evening.) Whether you drive or fly to the area, having these items to use during the week, rather than bringing or purchasing them, can save you a great deal of hassle and money.
On rainy days or when relaxing at night use the free WIFI or enjoy watching any of the 5 flatscreen Smart TVs. The living room and Sea Gull bedroom TVs each have a blue ray player attached. We also provide a small collection of DVDs, paperback books, and a couple board games for your enjoyment.
With our owner managed unit there is no need to stop at a front desk. We email a code to open the front door about 3 weeks before your arrival along with the Ocean Ritz parking pass. An Ocean Ritz armband for each guest will be in the condo. The armbands should be worn or be with you when using the facilities. We also provide two city lot parking passes to use during your stay. These will also be in the condo when you arrive. These passes allow free parking at all city operated parking lots in Panama City Beach. The city pasess MUST be left in the condo at checkout, or $250 for each missing pass will be deducted from your security deposit as that is the cost to replace the annual city parking pass.
We strive to make your stay a happy one! The memories will last forever and we want them to be great for you and your family. We want to work with you to provide your best condo stay ever!
