Fabulous Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first time at PCB and I must say it was fabulous from the immaculate condo we stayed in to the beautiful beach. This condo was extremely nice and had everything you would need for a great stay. Gary the owner was a joy to work with. He made sure we had everything we needed for a perfect stay. This condo is definitely a must and waking up and enjoying a cup of coffee to eat our meals on the oversized balcony was perfect! We will definitely be back and will stay in this condo again. Many thanks to Gary for making our stay a great one!!!

We have been to Panama City numerous times but this was our first time at Tropic Winds. This condo was by far the nicest we have ever stayed in. The beds were so comfortable, updated master bath was amazing and it was stocked with all the necessities! Plus, the decor was beautiful. Thanks Gary for letting us stay in your beautiful vacation home, we hope to return next year!

Beautiful, clean, modern, all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I would like to thank the owner, Gary, for a wonderful stay. We were there for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and we were greeted with a great bottle of wine. It was such a nice surprise. The place was fresh and clean as usual and even though hurricane Irma was around, we had a wonderful time. Whether enjoying the view while sitting in the comfortable seating area

, or having a meal outside under the stars, the spacious deck is such a bonus. We had a minor connection issue with Netflix. After advising Gary, someone came by to fix the problem within the hour. If you are looking for a beautiful getaway, my wife and I highly recommend Gary's place . You will not be disappointed. This is our second time staying here and we are planning our next trip already. Thank you so much.
