About Bill Robinette

We are a family of four who love to travel and visit new places. We currently live in South Carolina but are particularly fond of Panama City Beach, the white sand beaches, and Pier Park. We plan our year around our vacations to the beach!

Bill Robinette purchased this condo in 2011

Why Bill Robinette chose Florida Panhandle

During the last 5 years, we have had the opportunity to live in Alabama, Georgia, Texas and South Carolina. While there, we continued to vacation in PCB and fell in love with the beautiful white sand, blue water, and great family fun.

What makes this condo unique

You can walk right out to the beach with your morning coffee and enjoy the sun and surf all day long! We really like that Tropic Winds is located on the quiet section of beach but is close enough to restaurants and shopping for easy access. Pier Park is a short drive down the road and the new airport is only minutes away.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at Tropic Winds. The beach was beautiful and my kids, ages 9-13, had a blast! I was very pleased with our unit 1607, it was like a home away from home. Unlike some condos we've stayed at in the past this unit had everything I needed, especially the kitchen. I was so happy I didn't have to run straight to the store for measuring cups, pizza pan & cutter, storage containers, and a pitcher for my sweet tea😀......I guess it's the little things that make me happy. My youngest daughter was excited to see all the sand toys on the balcony & the boys loved the boogie boards, I didn't have room to pack all their toys. I'm surprised I even got all the kids in the van with all the luggage, my daughters bat bag, all her ball gear, & of course the wagon & chairs for her softball tourney. The condo was beautiful & my kids loved the art work. My son loved the painting in the kids room, he talked about it for days. My daughter starting collecting shells to paint when she got home to make her own art work. We had an amazing vacation & felt like we were right at home. Thanks to the owner for letting us enjoy your home and calling to check on us after we arrived. I will definitely recommend this unit to anyone going to Panama City.

Room was clean and owner was very helpful.

  • 2 of 5

Property pool was extremely small and always completely overcrowded. Had issues with losing water and power numerous times during our stay, which also seemed to happen at the worst times.. Only 2 of the 3 elevators were working most of the time, which was also during the busiest times... The water in front of this location was also not in the best condition. I understand this is not something that can necessarily be helped, however it was full of green algae and seaweed while the ocean water around this area was clear. The owner was extremely helpful and attentive with issues with the room. The room itself was very clean and nice. We did like the assigned parking space.

Our family of four loved this location. The beach here was wonderful....clear water, plenty of room to spread out, and helpful employees stationed in the beach hut all day. At night, the neighborhood was peaceful and quiet. The staff members we encountered were friendly and helpful. The condo was clean and well decorated. It had all the amenities needed to cook and live as if at home. The owner was very accommodating and even called to make sure all was well when we arrived. We will definitely recommend this site to our family and friends. If we take another beach vacation, we will check to see if this unit is available. Very pleased with our accommodations!

Absolutely Incredible

  • 5 of 5

This Condo is absolutely amazing!!!! The views are incredible we routinely saw dolphins and rays from the balcony. The only thing better than the condo was the owner. Wonderful place and an owner that makes sure you are happy.

Absolutely PERFECT Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was truly the best condo we could have ever chosen!! It is beautifully furnished. It has absolutely everything you could possibly need. It was clean. There is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The balcony is fantastic! I spent so much time sitting on the balcony reading and just listening to the sounds of the ocean and the wildlife. Our second day there we saw a GIANT stingray from the balcony. It was very cool. I was here for Spring Break with my niece and 3 of her friends who are all seniors in high school. I was concerned about it being loud or overly crowded, but it was perfect. The elevators are super fast. The parking garage can be a little tricky to maneuver, but by the end of the week I had it mastered. The first night we ate at Dick's Last Resort and really enjoyed that. We ate at Pineapple Willy's on our last night and there food was wonderful. The rest of the time I cooked and you definitely had anything and everything that you possibly need. It was overall and amazing experience. From the first moment that I spoke to Bill to get a quote, from paying the deposit, the stay, and even to the day I received my deposit back it has been an overall great experience. I would definitely recommend this unit for your vacation!!
