About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Free WiFi. Welcome to Unit 709 in the tower section of the Pinnacle Port complex. Pinnacle Port is located in the furthest west part of Panama City Beach, Florida. No where else in Panama City Beach will you find a resort on the beach & a lake on 26 acres of sand. This private, gated resort borders a Camp Helen State Park to the west, Carillon Beach to the east, the 800 acre Lake Powell to the north & the Gulf of Mexico to the south. We are close enough for daily activities in the busy areas of Panama City Beach, Panama City, Destin & Sandestin. While remaining far enough off the beaten path to enjoy the seclusion and privacy that on Pinnacle Port can offer. Our beaches provide the most picturesque sunrises in the mornings & sunsets in the evenings. Families take long walks & many begin their life journey together on the white sands. The setting is absolutely serene.

Unit 709 offers a full southeastern view of the crystal clear waters of the emerald coast from both the dining room & from the bedroom. It also provides a panoramic view of shimmering Lake Powell from the balcony. This has been my favorite place to enjoy the mornings first cup of coffee. The unique design of this non-smoking condo is just fantastic. The Master bedroom comes complete w/ith a full private bathroom, a St. Maarten style KING SIZE bed w/matching chest of drawers & end table, a wall mounted FLAT SCREEN TV w/cable service, a cordless telephone, a large closet for storage and a lovely view of the Gulf of Mexico. The tasteful furnishings throughout the rest of this unit include a very comfortable Queen size sleeper sofa in the living room, 44' FLAT SCREEN PLASMA TV, two arm chairs, antique bentwood end tables and more. The dining room is equipped w/a rosewood dining table w/seating for four, access to the breakfast bar w/three comfortable stools and again a lovely view of the Gulf of Mexico. The kitchen is equipped w/granite counter tops, full size refrigerator, dishwasher, conventional stove/oven, microwave oven, toaster, stainless steel side by side sink w/disposal, coffee maker, blender, mixer, pots, pans, skillets, turkey roaster, and basically every utensil known to mankind. If you discover something we don't have we will have it delivered to you during your stay. The laundry room has a full size washer/dryer set, iron and ironing board. In addition to the internet cafe in the main lobby of the tower, this unit offers free WiFi of it's own. For your convenience we also have a private covered parking place available for a very small fee. No more fighting for a good parking place after dinner or long walks across the parking lots for our guests. Make yourself at home w/the wide variety of authentic Floridian works of art and artifacts, as well as some works by local artisans.

Pinnacle Port offers two swimming pools for your enjoyment. The small pool is across the parking area has 25,000 gallons of water. This pool is not covered, but has an abundance of foliage to give it a secluded feel. There is a bath house and drink machines for your convenience. The tennis courts and children’s playground are on either side. The large pool is attached to the main tower building w/a total of 118,000 gallons of water. Half of the large pool has a roof covering the shallow end. This allows families to enjoy the cool waters even if they prefer to stay out of the hot afternoon sun. In the winter, this half of the pool in completely enclosed and the water is heated to a comfortable 82°. This pool sits on the Gulf so you can see and hear the waves. Music is played over the speakers during daylight hours. Concessions are available for a small fee. Just inside the main building, across from the men’s and women’s changing rooms are the men’s and women’s saunas. This area is open to all guests during the open pool hours. There is also a video arcade available for the youngsters.

Another exclusive amenity provided to our guests is a marina w/a boat ramp and 14 boat slips. All of the boat slips have access to electrical outlets. Guests have the option to bring their boat, Wave runners or jet skis w/them. There is a small $10.00 per week trailer parking fee collected at the guard gate. A filleting station w/a cutting board and a sink are provided for your convenience. If you're interested, you can even rent canoes, kayaks or a paddleboat for some great outdoor activities from the rental office next to the docks. They also provide paddles and life vests w/your rental. Almost anything you can fish for in the Gulf of Mexico you can catch in Lake Powell. Florida fishing license requirements apply to the lake and gulf. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The children’s playground on the west end of property. This area gives the kids a little more to do if they are too small for other activities. The small pool is right in front of the playground. While the grown ups to relax and rejuvenate the kids are entertained by the locomotive themed playground. The play ground offers a 6 station swing, a train, complete w/a tunnel for games of hide-and-seek, a small climbing course, ideal for the little ones, and a fun tube slide. Along w/the play ground, the resort offers an exciting game room for the older kids, ideal for sending them off to play while you relax.

If tennis is your game come and play a set beside the water of beautiful Lake Powell. After spending some time at the beach head to the court for some volleying fun. If you are lucky, the part time resident bald eagle will make an appearance at the top of an old light pole just southwest of the courts. There are four courts that have lighting set on a timer. The fencing around the courts has a wind guard material. The court hours are 5 in the morning to 11 at night. The lights will automatically shut off accordingly. During the winter season, many tournament and lessons are held on our tennis courts. At the rental office, you can put down a deposit and use our tennis rackets & tennis balls. See you on the court!

If you want to workout while on vacation, feel free to visit the fitness room. It comes complete w/weights, cardio equipment & a view of the gulf that will distract even the fittest of visitors.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

The condo was as advertised. Loved the view from the dining room window and the Lakeview from the other side of the condo. Beds were comfortable. I would like to go back sometime. The beach was just steps away.

First time visit to Panama City Beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Pinnacle Port! The beach was beautiful, and the surroundings were as well. The condo was exactly what we needed, no more and no less. Perfect! I loved not being right in the middle of all the traffic, and yet still close enough to all of the shopping and restaurants. The best part was the owner was very easy to work with and prompt in returning any calls or texts with questions or concerns. Can't wait to come back again!!

Owner's Response: Hi Denisa, Thank you very much for your kind words and positive feedback. I'm so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Pinnacle Port. And, I could not agree more about the location. It's so busy and crowded on the main Front Beach strip and the Thomas Drive areas. Pinnacle Port is private, secluded and really provides a feeling of security so if you want to let the kids do their own thing you really don't have to worry about them. Thanks again for choosing our condo. I hope you will consider us again for future visits to Panama City Beach. Sincerely, Craig Wallace & Crew

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of the condo. We could easily drive to Panama City Beach or Destin. We went to both while down there because it is a short drive and allowed us more things to do. I also loved the covered pool area because we could get our son out of the sun and still let him swim and play in the water. The condo was nice and clean as well. Our son loved the big mirrors. He is only a year old so he liked staring at his reflection. I liked the covered parking as well because it keeps the sun off of the car and you don't have to search for a parking spot. The gated community made me feel very safe too and you actually see security around the premises. I would recommend this place for families with children because there are many things to do without leaving. Thank you for allowing us to spend our vacation at your condo!

Owner's Response: Hi Misty, Thank you very much for your kind words and positive feedback. I'm so happy that you guys had such a good time at Pinnacle Port and enjoyed our condo. The location was the main reason we chose this resort. It's so convenient to everything, but still tucked away on it's own gated 26 acres of sand. We always have felt comfortable letting our daughter and her friends just do their own thing when we're down there. Again, I am very happy that you had an enjoyable vacation. I hope you will keep us in mind for your next visit to the beach. Sincerely, Craig Wallace & Crew

We had the most amazing vacation there and would love to go again sometime. We even seen a whale that had been hurt very close to shore and gulf world came and got it. Craig thanks again for sharing this amazing place and may God Bless you all. The Smith Family from Newcomb, Tn

Owner's Response: Hi Beth, Thank you so much for choosing our condo and for the positive feedback. I am so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay. And WOW!!! That is an amazing story about the whale. Hopefully he was alright after the folks from Gulf World came and got him. I think the next time we're in PCB we're going to take one of those whale watching boats out. What an amazing vacation memory. At any rate, thank you again for allowing us to accommodate you during your vacation. I hope we have the opportunity to do it again in the future. Sincerely, Craig Wallace & Crew

Very Family Friendly! 5/25/13 - 6/1/13

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at your condo. The views of both the lake and the ocean were amazing. You have everything you need in the unit. There are even beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys, boogie board, tennis rackets, and floats in the closet to use. If you dont want to carry the chairs and umbrella down there are rentals down on the beach but they are pricey. We stayed right before peak season starts and the area was great. Not to crowded and weather was beautiful. The water was still a little chilly but not to bad. Pinnacle Port is about 20 - 30 minutes away from most things in PCB which we loved. We didnt want to have our family around the partying but we wanted the beauty of the white sand beaches and emerald water. This place was perfect for us. Our recommendations for attractions: Gulf World and The Sea Dragon Pirate Cruise are must dos for those with children of any age. Restaurants were: The Boatyard, Bayou Bills, Margaritaville, Captain Jacks Seafood Buffet (the breakfast buffet was horrible). Our vacation was amazing we will definitely be staying here again in the future. Oh and the paying the extra for the covered parking was worth it. Its in a very convienient spot.

Definitely, keep us in mind for future visits to the area. We would love to accommodate you again. Sincerely, Craig Wallace & Crew
