Gorgeous views of the Florida Gulf Coast. Amazing weather. A three-bedroom, three-bath, beautiful, well-appointed condo with a huge, private balcony. Excellent food, fun attractions and much more in a great vacation venue.
I’m describing our experience at Laketown Wharf, a condominium development on South Thomas Drive in Panama City Beach, Florida. My husband and I, along with our youngest teenage son and a friend traveled to the beach in the fall to enjoy quieter beaches and the absolutely beautiful weather.
Laketown Wharf is located between a huge private freshwater lake and the Gulf of Mexico and is in the heart of the best entertainment, shopping and dining attractions. You can choose between one, two and three-bedroom layouts, and each have a cozy additional bunk bed room and sofa beds for grandchildren or extra guests. There are private balconies and exterior corridor access. Condos have door codes for additional safety, and there is free covered parking. A very friendly and competent staff take care of your every need. Laketown Wharf has specials and can accommodate any budget.
Condos are completely outfitted with everything you need, such as washers, dryers, free wi-fi, premium TV channels and more. You can choose Gulf views, golf course and lake views. We had a magnificent Gulf view, but also loved heading down to the lakeside boardwalk that meanders around the lake, where you can sit under gazebos or very comfortable sofas to read your favorite book.
The development has Laketown Market for snacks and beach essentials, the Sunshine Bar & Grill for delicious casual food for all ages and the Splash Bar. And The Wharf Restaurant also features a popular, great local seafood buffet, where the food is wonderful and the kids will love watching a 9-foot aquarium with 60 fish and 735 gallons of saltwater. Speaking of watching, Laketown Wharf’s lake is outfitted with several fountains that light up and spray at night.
You can walk right down to the beach for private access, but also enjoy five pools – one on the rooftop! – an outdoor spa tub, fitness center, a kid’s playground and a putting green. You can enjoy quiet pursuits, but again, Laketown Wharf also is in the middle of it all. Attractions nearby include Gulf World, and you are less than a mile from Signal Hill Golf Course and only a few minutes to St. Andrews State Park, with snorkeling and kayaking. Restaurants, shopping and other beach fun are all around.
