Discover The Other Florida

Feb 15, 2008
Panama City Beach, Florida - on the Gulf of Mexico: can you imagine a more ideal place to call home? The developers of Island Reserve came to the realization that the location would be great for a luxurious, but family fun gated community featuring lush landscaping, a one acre pool deck with a huge lagoon style pool, a clubhouse and recreational facilities, courtyards and natural ponds.

However, Island Reserve is more than just another gated community. With a media center and private theater, interactive fountains, convenience to nearby attractions, and game rooms, it's a place where residents, friends and family can come together and enjoy the best of what life has to offer.

A state of the art fitness center complete with an indoor basketball/volleyball/aerobic court is just the beginning for those who want to lead a full, active and healthy lifestyle. Condominium homes at the Island Reserve offer spacious living areas with high ceilings. Hardwood floors in the living and dining room areas are made of beautiful finished bamboo. The kitchen and bathroom floors are Travertine tile.

Kitchens at Island Reserve create a sense of luxury as well. With granite countertops and designer cabinetry, stainless appliances and premium fixtures, it's easy to see the thought that has gone into planning each home. Likewise, garden tubs with separate glass enclosed showers in the master bath, a washer and dryer in each home, private balconies and parking on each living level, there are few considerations that haven't already been addressed.

For those who will invest in the Island Reserve community, it is understood that different people have different needs. That's why single bedroom condos with a study are available as well as two-level floor plans for those who want to keep their living space separate from their sleeping area. Two and three bedroom units are also offered, and for those who want the independence of a townhouse rather than a flat, three and four bedroom townhouses, with garages, are available.

Of course, not everything in the Island Reserve community is about celebrating the sun and the natural features of the area. Nearby, Island Reserve residents will find great restaurants, shopping, amusement venues, Gulf World Marine Park, Zoo World, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, miniature golf courses and go-cart tracks, deep-sea fishing, water sports of every type and of course, golf. The golf enthusiast can enjoy up to 15 area golf courses with several championship level courses within a 5-15 minute drive. 27 courses are within an hour's drive. Those who are looking for something special can boat over to Shell Island or visit St. Andrews Recreational State Park where they can indulge in fresh crab and scallops that they may catch themselves.

Island Reserve is an ideal place for those who are looking for both self-sufficiency and comfort. Whether you're looking for a great time or you're looking for a place where you can relax and unwind, Panama City Beach, Florida, will put you in the middle of it.
