Gorgeous Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Joe for the use of your beautiful condo. Wasn't crazy about Panama Beach, actually it was the people that were visiting Panama Beach that I did not care for. The condo and our accommodations were the best part of our vacation. Only had a few issues: 1. The sink in the master bedroom was clogged. I did not call Joe to let him know, so I didn't expect this to be fixed while I was there. 2. The door wouldn't close unless we pulled/pushed on it and 3. a few times there was another car parked in our spot. Had to call security but they were not much help. They told me I had to call Joe and have him call to have the car towed. I was not willing to do this for a couple reasons; 1. They knew what room I was staying in 2. I did not want to ruin someone else's vacation.

Now, the reasons I loved the condo: 1. Beautifully decorated 2. Amazing views 3. The reserved parking space was on the same floor as the room 4. Clean 5. Joe was so easy and wonderful to work with. So nice not having to check in. 6. Very easy to purchase our bracelets for beach and pool access. If I ever come to Panama City again I will definitely rent this same condo.

Again, THANK YOU, JOE! The condo was the best part of our vacation :)

Best View On The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Just want to say thanks so very much for the use of your lovely condo. When you enter the condo you see the most beautiful view of the ocean. The condo was very comfortable and had all we needed for our nine day stay. The reserved parking space on the same floor was very handy. The elevators are near by and we had no waiting. Joe was so wonderful to work with. Never had to call him after our arrival. Everything was taken care of before we arrived. No hassle. Thanks Joe for everything. Dottie

Loved staying in this Beautiful condo. I've stayed in many condos and this was definitely the cleanest one. The view from the balcony is amazing. We never had to wait for the elevators. I will definitely be contacting Joe for my next visit.

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed Joe's unit so much.. It's spacious. You don't feel cramped. It's decorated wonderfully. No drab white walls like some units. I personally do not like staying in a unit over the 5th floor and this unit being on the 5th was perfect. Joe was very easy to work with. He answered my emails right way. The whole experience was wonderful. So glad I found Joe's Unit.. This will be my home away from home at the beach.

We were here for spring break and had an awesome time. My family of 5 stayed here and had plenty of space. All the beds were so comfortable including the sofa bed. The view is awesome and the balcony is huge. Would come back and stay here again...wish we didn't have to leave. Joe was great to deal with...a great experience from start to finish.
