From the balcony of this condo at the Emerald Beach Resort, you can gaze right down at the white-sand beach and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The resort is also situated close to the center of Panama City Beach, and guests can easily walk to many local attractions, including the famous Pier Park.

You’ll find a luxurious king-size bed in the master bedroom, a queen-size sofa bed in the living room, and a twin bunk bed tucked away in a nook of the hallway area. While unorthodox, these sleeping arrangements could be exactly what families or larger groups are looking for to fit everyone under one roof.

This adorable and pet-friendly Airbnb is located one block from the beach and a short distance from Shipwreck Island Waterpark. It’s found in a partially fenced off section of superhost James’ yard, with guests enjoying their own parking space and access to the shared gazebo.
