About Rick Williams

Rick is from Lead, South Dakota and Pattie is from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We live in the Atlanta area. We have two sons who have recently graduated from college and are starting their new lives. We enjoy travel, all types of athletic activities (tennis,golf, bike riding), spectator sports, and spending time with friends. We hope you will enjoy your stay at our home.

Rick Williams purchased this condo in 2007

Why Rick Williams chose Florida Panhandle

We are a penthouse unit so we have total peace and quiet.....views are incredible!

The exercise room and pool area is the best on the beach...very spacious, modern and well maintained.

The wrap around balcony on the east end of the building , facing the gulf and also facing East, is spacious and gives us a sunrise and sunset view from out unit.

Parking is direcctly under the unit so you do not have to walk across the highway to your unit when you go grocery shopping or for arrival and departure loading and unloading.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is close to many activities that we enjoy. Pier Park with more than 100 stores and restaurants is only one mile away. There are three to five live bands on weekends and holidays at the various restaurants.

We are located almost equi distant between the two piers in Panama City Beach.

The beach is beautiful,the water is clear, the aquatic wildlife is fascinating.

We are across the street from Gulf World with porpoise and seal shows.

Bike riding is terrific!

Free public tennis courts are less than 2 miles away.

There are multiple reasonably priced golf courses within 2 to 6 miles.

A wondeful place to vacation!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments from recent renters folloow:



1.This was one of the most beautifully decorated places we have ever rented!! Thanks Rick and Pattie for all your extra touches and making us feel so welcome. You are excellent owners to rent from and we hope to come back again. Our favorite moment was when we walked into this beautiful condo. The unbelievable view from the balcony. Absolutely gorgeous!?





2. Your condo is beautiful! I love your kitchen especially. Thanks so much for the bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived, what a special touch!

3.We had a great time here! We have been coming to Panama City for 25 years and this has been one of the best places to stay! Loved the Pier Park reminds us of Destin Commons (one of my favorite places).

4. We really enjoyed staying in your beautiful home. We would love to visit again. My daughter has decided that she wants to stay here forever.







5. We had a great time at your condo. I can't think of anything that needs to be changed. It was like a home away from home. We have stayed at many condos and hotels but none have come close to the special touches that you and your wife have added to your beach home. We so appreciate you sharing it with us. I will definitely recommend your condo to anyone looking for a condo to rent. My family and I hope to visit again in the future and we will contact you before checking on any other condos. Thanks again for everything. We had a great vacation.

Very comfortable with fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this condo and had a wonderful time. Everything you might need was provided including lots of bath towels which is not always the case! The balcony was awesome. We were comfortable sitting out there any time of day.

The only thing we found negatIve was the elevator. Be prepared to wait a little while and to have multiple stops on the way up and down. It always worked, we just had to have patience.

The owner was fantastic to work with from the time I sent my fist inquiry about the property until after we left and he contacted me within 48 hours to let me know about the return of my deposit. I would recommend this rental to anyone who asked.

EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED WITH INSTANT RESPONSE TIME FROM OWNER WITH ANY QUESTIONS

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 arrived at this amazing rental yesterday. The penthouse is immaculate and bigger than it shows in the pictures. The balcony is amazing night & day. Being so high up I was nervous about safety but the railing is rock solid. The beach is clean and the white sand is soft and we were out there all morning without one bug bite (which as beach frequenters, this is rare). The pics make the walk to the shoreline look a lot longer than it is. It's a 60 second walk. The water is clear.

The location is perfect for families or groups. The rooms are separated enough there is plenty of privacy. The master bath is huge and spotless. Whirlpool jets are perfect. the beds are glorious and pillows perfect and plentiful. My 20 year old slept on the pull out sofa and said it was as comfortable as his bed (sheets found on master bedroom closet shelf labled). There are ample dressers and closet space with hangers. The furniture is also very comfortable. The Wifi works great as well.

The building is easy to navigate once you do a walk through. Park in the 4 level parking garage & check the first couple floors for a cart when you arrive. Consider dropping a person off at the first elevator spot and let them do the searching while you are find a place to park. There was no problem finding a spot but the carts aren't always on each level due to people using them and returning them where they desire. Took about 10 minutes to track down 3. Not bad at all.

We are on the 25th floor and our elevator wait has never been more than 2-3 minutes and the building is full. When you get off the elevator it's slightly warm in the hallway because the entrance to all the condos is an exterior open wall. I was intimidated being from Chicago where nothing has exposed doors but it's only a 2 minute walk from the elevator to the door and I got over it after the first time.

Bring your own food staples. In previous rentals we have vacationed there has always been a surplus of things like coffee grounds, dry goods, ect. left from previous renters. It appears that isn't a practice here, which is understandable. Every renter starts fresh. There is salt & pepper and a few other spices and cleaning supplies provided.

I am extremely happy with our decision to stay here!

The only people I would not recommend this for are those with kids that would climb over the balcony or rely on a wheelchair for mobility.

Best place I ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse condo is unbelievably beautiful, well furnished, and clean. My family of 6 had plenty of room and enjoyed many hours on the spectacular balcony when we were not enjoying the great pools and ocean. Rick was a pleasure to work with. He even went above and beyond and provided us with restaurant recommendations and other things to do.....thanks Rick! I hope to book another week at this great condo soon.

Beautiful apartment with gorgeous decor. Wonderful views - watched the sunrises and sunsets. Could see Manta Rays swimming off shore in small groups early morning and evening. Clear blue ocean - collected lots of shells with snorkeling mask, etc. White sand beach. Two swimming pools to pick from. Never did get to use the exercise room - but it has everything. Parking was never a problem.

Another great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best condos that we have stayed at in all of our vacations. In fact this the 3rd year in a row that we have stayed here and plan on more. It has a great view of the beach, sunrise and sunsets due to the wrap around balcony. Very clean and well kept. Close to shopping and dining. In fact I suggest the Sand Bar on 79 for good lunch or dinner. Thanks, again Rick for letting us stay in your condo, as always we had a great time.
