Area Information
Welcome to Panama City Beach and the Villas at St. Thomas Square

St. Thomas Square is a unique waterfront property directly on the shores of Grand Lagoon. The complex features boat docks with direct access to St. Andrews Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. What makes St. Thomas Square truly unique is the fact that it is also so close to the beach. Walk across Thomas Drive and you will find miles and miles of turquoise blue water and sugar white sand. Many shops, resturaunts, and activities are with in easy walking distance of the complex. For boaters, fishermen and beach lovers St. Thomas Square has a lot to offer.

Our villas overlook scenic Grand Lagoon and are just across the street from what many call "the world's most beautiful beaches". St. Thomas Square is the only property in the area that offers boat docks on the Lagoon and is still just steps from the beach, restaurants and activities.
Park right at your door and avoid the traffic, busy elevators, and packed beaches at the large, high rise condos. Our villas are only a 3 minute walk from a beautiful, uncrowded stretch of beach. There are also many restaurants and clubs with in easy walking distance. Guadalajara Mexican restaurant and Panama City Beach Winery are located within the complex. Hammerhead Fred's, Subway, Mellow Mushroom, and a convenience store are just across Joan Avenue. There is a Wendy's next door with no street to cross. Ms. Newby's, Spinaker, and LaVela are all a short walk away.
Enjoy the use of our boat docks during your stay. The docks have a fish cleaning table, wash down station and power receptacles. You can fish from the dock or just watch as the boats come in with their catch. Fish the Gulf for amberjack, snapper and kingfish, and more or go for redfish, sea trout or flounder in St. Andrews Bay. Spend a day exploreing the pristine beaches of Shell Island, it is just a short boat ride down Grand Lagoon. Boat and trailer wash down area provided and boat ramps are near by.
The beautifully landscaped pool area is steps from your door and has a area with covered tables and charcoal grills. A free wi-fi internet connection is available in the pool area. There is a sauna and an outdoor shower. Shuffleboard courts are near the pool and lighted tennis courts are in front of the building.
For the kids, Emerald Falls Amusement Park has go-karts, rides, bumper boats and more it is next door with no streets to cross. Ripley's "Believe it or Not" and Wonderworks are less than a mile away. Gulf World, Zoo World, and Shipwreck Island waterpark are also very close by.
Signal Hill golf course is almost next door. Bay Point and Hombre Golf Club are about 3 miles away. Many other great courses are also with in a few miles.
For the more adventurous, we can help arrange rental pontoon boats, jet skis, and kayaks that can be kept right at our dock if you desire. There are also guided jetski tours and ferry boat rides to Shell Island that leave from the lagoon. Many charter fishing boats are docked nearby on the lagoon.

We had a great time at this house in Palm Cove. Ann Robinson, the owner, was very easy to communicate with and quick to respond to any questions we had. The home had ample space for my family, the pool was great. We made new friends in the neighborhood during our week stay. I highly recommend this home for vacation. I actually cried a little when we had to leave. :(

Excellent place to stay

July 25, 2014

Our stay in the condo was amazing, very clean!! We had 7 people; two adults and 5 kids that ranged from 3 to 17. The condo was perfect for our family: 3 minutes to the beach, food close by, and go-karts/miniature golf right next door. The pool was nice and relaxing as well. Scott, Stephanie and family

The Condo was perfect, very spacious and clean. Close to everything but being on the Bay you have the serenity and peaceful setting. Even saw Dophins swim by several mornings! Will definitely be back again!!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"This condo is beautiful, well taken care of, relaxing atmosphere"

This is the year in a row we have rented a condo from Jim, you'll never get better service from any where else. Must say we loved this particular condo. It is so relaxing & is kept in immaculate condition, it's like a home away from home. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. We plan to return yearly, don't beieve we could ever find a better place or a better deal. Not only is the condo itself beautiful but it is located close to everything you could want to do in Panama City Beach! Thanks again to Jim for another teriffic worry free vacation!

"Great weekend getaway!"

Prior to our arrival Jim was a wealth of information about the local area and sites to visit on the water. We arrived from Niceville by Boat on Thursday and found the Condo with absolutly zero issues. Docking the boat was a breeze and there was plenty of deep water for our 2670 Glacier Bay. The condo was very comfortable and within walking distance to everything we needed. We will be back soon.

"A great vacation - Pool / Lagoon and Beach"

Accomodation fantastic, lots of room and very clean. Also close to all amenities including a pool, the Lagoon and the Beach is just across the road!! We have been to PCB 4/5 times now and this was one of our favourite vacations. Thanks Jim and Mary for a great stay.

"Great Place to stay, but let's keep this one a secret!"

This place is hard to beat. This was our second time staying. It is located right on the lagoon and just a short walk to the beach (and everything else). Room was clean and comfortable with everything that you need. Even this place is right in the middle of just about everything, the immediate location does have a private feel. From the pool, to the beach, to the lagoon, to all the restaurants, to the golf course, to all the other amusement attractions, there is a variety of things to do that will please everyone.
