About Carlos Buckelew

I am a 75 year old retiree that lives in Sun Lakes, Arizona. I grew up in central Louisiana with both my wives. My first wife, Barbara and I were married for 51 years until her death from breast cancer in January, 2011. After her death, my second wife, Gayle and I were reacquainted after not seeing each other for over 50 years. We got married here on the beach in April, 2012. God has blessed me with two of the best women in the world. Thank you God for blessing me. Barb was the artist that painted the murals in our condo 302 and in the office. Gayle and I love Arizona and like to travel and stay active. We always come back here and spend the month of September. We love this beach.

Carlos Buckelew purchased this condo in 1994

Why Carlos Buckelew chose Panama City Beach

Back in 1994 when Barb and I lived in Indiana, our good friends, Joyce and Gary Hanlon came to Florida and bought the condo next door. They came back to Indiana and told us the condo next to them was for sale. We hurried down here and bought the condo. We loved it and the beach on first sight and love it more each year. We love to come here and just relax and enjoy the beauty of this beach. In 2014, we bought another condo, 403 just a few feet away.

What makes this condo unique

Reasonable rates, near beach, pool right off patio, parking within a few feet of front door, restaurants and entertainment near by, golf within 2 miles, and the most beautiful beaches in the world within a short walk

Cozy place to sleep and base from to enjoy the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the closeness to the beach, which was our main purpose for this vacation. The property is dated, but clean and we'll maintained. Just a personal preference, we thought it strange there was no overhead light/fan combo in the bedroom. That is the only drawback, which again is minor. This is a small condo, but perfect for a couple. We are happy with our stay.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We recently visited Panama City Beach. We have made many trips here before, but this has been our best yet. The condo was perfect for

our needs. We loved the convenience to the pool and beach. Could not believe how easy all of the details were in regards to check-in and

out. I was able to talk with the owner with questions I had before we went to Panama City Beach. We are looking forward to when we can

go again. The most peaceful and relaxing trip to PCB ever. We will be back. Condo 302 will be what we are looking for on out next trip.

We loved how our back door opened up to only a few feet from the swimming pool. Condo was clean and ready to go when we arrived.

Pool and grounds around condo maintained very well. Just walked in and began to have a great time.
