About Mike McDonald

I am a native Floridian living in the Atlanta area with my wife Randy and son Steven. We love the beach and hope to spend more time in PCB when we retire. We love all water sports, have a cat named Ziva , and are active in our church.

Mike McDonald purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mike McDonald chose Panama City Beach

The view of the incredible pool, beach, and gulf is what won us over. The famous emerald green water and white sand beaches across the Florida panhandle is the best in Florida. Also, the resort like atmosphere at SOP made it a great value. Now that both piers are completed, evening strolls or fishing with the panoramic beach lights in view makes for a fun evening activity. With the new international airport, and the total rebuilding of South Thomas Drive, and free trolley car transportation, PCB is reinventing itself into a more family friendly beach resort.

What makes this condo unique

I keep comming back to the view. It is spectacular! I never get tired of sitting on the balcony and enjoying the view....even when there is a storm brewing! The close proximity to a reserved parking space on the same floor as our unit makes for a short walk with suitcases and groceries. The Poolside grill makes an excellent blackened grouper sandwich. As a musician, I also enjoy listening to music and videos on the Surround Sound Home Theatre system in the family room.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd time to stay in Mike's condo at SOP. We do not have any complaints (besides amenity fees, which i knew ahead of time). The view is great. The condo is nice. We have 2 small children (5 & 2). The bunk room is very accommodating as well as beach toys for the kids. The pool is awesome. The location of SOP is great. Wal-Mart, a convenient store, Waffle House and Pineapple Willys are all right at your fingertips. We would stay here for the 3rd time if it works out.

Great room, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, kids (age 11 and 7), and I had a really great time at Shores of Panama, and this room in particular. The owner, Mike, quickly replied to all questions before and after booking, and there was great communication through the whole process. Our security deposit was returned within about a week. The room was beautiful -- very clean and well taken care of. The 9th floor was perfect -- not too high, and not too low. There was a great view from a really long balcony. Also, having the reserved parking spot steps from the room is definitely something worth considering when comparing to other rooms. The kids loved the bunk room and video game system. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies. The resort itself, especially the pool, was also great. Would definitely stay again!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I so enjoyed our stay at Mike's condo. When we arrived, we saw just how close the parking spot is to the condo. We did not even have to get a luggage cart for our things! When we opened the door, we noticed how clean the condo was. We opened the fridge and it was spotless, kitchen was spotless, went in the bathrooms and they were spotless. The bed slept great, and it being king size was a huge plus! We loved having the table and chairs on the balcony to eat dinner while listening the waves. Great view from the condo. My fiancé loved the surround sound! We hope to be back very soon! Mike is an easy person to work with and responded promptly to all emails and phone calls. Definitely recommend staying at this condo!

Two of my older kids and I stayed here during our Spring Break. The condo itself is fabulous: clean, beautiful and has everything you could want. Washer/dryer was super handy to have after being in the beach all week. Condo had ample supply of towels and sheets/pillows and plenty of movies, sand toys etc. Owners were very easy to contact and super accommodating. We would definitely stay at this condo again, but not during Spring Break: tons of loud, intoxicated college kids making noise at all hours of the day and night. Security did a great job keeping outside guests out of the condo area and securing the pool area as well as the entrances so we always felt secure. Just a bit loud for a family environment at that time of the year.

Two great months!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you again Mike for letting us stay in this beautiful setting called Panama City Beach - Shores of Panama Condos and especially your unit.

We have signed on again for Jan and Feb, 2016 and use your place as if it were are own and have had many a compliment on how bright and clean it is. I love making breakfast and lunch overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. I believe next winter will be our 7th year in a row.

Thanks again and we enjoy working with you. Barrie and Janis London ON

Map

Shell Island area ( requires access by boat ) has herds of wild deer and is a major transit area for grey bottle nose dolphins. Adjacent to Shell Island and just 3-4 miles drive from the condo is St. Andews Park offering boat launch, picnic, camping beachcombing, swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving with a 'natural' flavor. We recommend renting a pontoon boat to enjoy the dolphins, shell island, and the PCB Bay area.
