Sea Horse Condo at Treasure Island, Panama City, FL

I have been a property owner at Treasure Island since 2013.  I have friends who also have a unit here,  and after visiting them a couple of times I knew I wanted to make a life-long dream of having property on the ocean come true.  I knew Treasure Island is where I needed to be, so I purchased the unit, sight unseen, in the Spring of 2013. 


Because I am a wheel-chair user for over 50 years, I knew the unit needed to be remodeled to meet my needs. I immediately knew that I wanted to add the feature of offering this exciting, beautiful property to others, particularly wheelchair users who have great difficulty finding accessible accommodations. It is truly a dream come true.  

 

My first winter of ownership was spent remodeling.  The master bath was completely gutted and redesigned to meet the needs of a wheel-chair user.  The beautifully designed master bath features a roll-in shower, a cut out vanity for sink access and a ramp that allows access to the balcony; something not found in any other unit.  Many units in this building will claim to be wheel-chair accessible.  Every unit is easily accessed for entering, but once inside neither of the bathrooms in any unit is designed for wheel-chair users.  Once inside this unit, there is complete access to every room, including the laundry room. Other than the ramp to the balcony in the living room, these modifications are unnoticeable so the non-wheelchair user will not be affected by any modifications.

I have to admit that I didn't consider any other property in Panama City Beach.  The location, which is at the east end of Thomas Drive, offered the pure beauty that can only be found on the Gulf.  The property offers covered parking, a large pool with several cabanas, a hot tub, a fitness room, an outdoor grill area for guests' use, security and 4 elevators.  The beautiful terra cotta exterior of the property makes it stand out among all the other high rise condos and is easily visible from as far away as the Hathaway Bridge. This unit was remodeled in 2014 with all new flooring, fresh paint throughout, custom black-out draperies, beautiful accessories and new furniture.
