About The Owner

I love working in my yard, planting flowers, and enjoying Florida's wonderful weather. I enjoy the downtown marina area and the live theater.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2002

Why The Owner chose Florida Panhandle

There are 320 days of sunshine and miles of beautiful snow white, sugary beach. My family liked to vacation in the area and enjoyed returning to the ocean each year.

What makes this condo unique

I enjoy the early quiet mornings, sipping my favorite coffee from the nearby Starbuck's coffee shop on the front porch of the condo. Then walking across the street after sunrise to look for shells and visit with others taking their morning walk along the beachfront. In the late evenings, I enjoy taking a late evening walk and then sitting in the chair as the sun sets upon the ocean. It is calming to listen to the waves of the peaceful ocean in this quiet, west end condo area. Come create your own memories.

Love this Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Southwind is a great community in which to vacation. Dee's condo is even nicer than the pictures reveal and she is a hands-on owner. She takes care of every need with a wonderful spirit. The beach is only steps away and we spent lots of time there. The other residents of Southwind are inviting and make you feel like you've come home. We will be back and hope to bring others with us.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathy, Thank you for taking time to write a review of your experience at Southwind. Two things that I really was pleased to hear were that Southwind is a great community and the other residents made you so welcomed it feels like home :-). What a beautiful comment. I am always happy to hear about those kind of experiences, especially when that occurs while away on vacation! I'm happy you mentioned the condo looks even better in person than the pictures online reflect. Typically it is the opposite so this will be useful for others deciding whether to book here. I love to hear you will return and you are confident in renting again based on the quality of the property, your friendly community, the ease of working with me and steps away to the beach access. You are always welcome to stay. Warmest Regards, Dee

Awesome Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely wonderful. We were close to the beach, stores and restaurants. This home was beautifully decorated and everything we needed was provided. My husband and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary while we were there .... and the owner left us a anniversary card! Wow! We will certainly be returning to this comfy condo to stay ... as soon as we can. We are planning to take our two children with us on the next trip. My husband and I highly recommend this awesome place to stay! ( 5+ stars)

cozy, clean, awesome beach access

  • 4 of 5

This was an awesome pick. The beach access is great, being on the west side of town it seemed to be a little quieter. All the comforts of home here, we will be back soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you Diane for taking time to comment on all the things you loved about your stay and the condo. It helps others looking through many options to find the reasons you loved it so much and plan to return. One of the difficult discriptions to convey is just how close it is to the water so I'm happy you emphasized the ease of access from the renters perspective. It truly is steps out the front door and across the street. You know that you are on a beach vacation . ;-) You are welcome back anytime.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our son to PCB for a baseball tournament. Once his team was eliminated, we had time to enjoy some of our family's favorite activities....time on the beach and plenty of mini golf. We also enjoyed walking around Pier Park. The condo itself was so cute and clean, just like the pictures! It was wonderful to come home to at the end of a long day. The complex was quiet as well. We appreciated this wonderful place to stay during our first trip to PCB, and echo reviewers who recommend this location.

Owner's Response: Thank you Keith and Sheri! I know there are many options to rent in PCB, so I appreciate that you chose to stay at my condo. I am so pleased you were able to enjoy some local activities. Thank you for taking the time to provide the great feedback. I am happy to hear how much you loved staying here. I hope this means you will return soon and often...perhaps you can stay longer next time to see even more things in our community. It is always fun to explore all that PCB has to offer visitors. So, hurry back and I look forward to having you stay again. Dee
