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.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ashley. I am so pleased to hear you will return again. I hope you can stay longer next time and enjoy even more of our local fun as well as getting extra beach days. The ease of walking out the door and the beach just steps away makes enjoying sand and sea easier. Thank you for sharing how clean the condo was for you. It has and always will be my top priority for guests. Enjoying your time is second and I couldn't be happier to hear you experienced both during your stay. Hope to have you back soon! It's been a joy having both of you as guests. Dee

Great place to stay...very clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our vacation. This condo was very clean and very convient. We have paddle boards and it seemed closer to the beach than some others that were right on the beach. The hose right out on the front porch was great to clean the sand off our boards and beach things! We would definitely recommend this location to anyone looking for a nice quiet place to stay in pcb. We enjoyed how close it was to St. Andrews state park where we went snorkeling and saw sea turtles and many other fish! It is also very close to the pier which has many restaurants and places to shop!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being such wonderful and thoughtful guests. It was a joy to speak with you and so much fun to watch the mini videos you shared with me of your underwater ventures with a turtle, fishes and even a ray! Your appreciation for the outdoor water hose to clean paddle boards is great info for future guests plus the fact that it is an up close experience with the beach and water versus many other condos that feel more isolated or distant. That was certainly one thing that led me to purchase this condo before moving to Florida. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with me and other readers! You are kind hearted and I look forward to having you both return again. Until then stay well. Dee

K2 is the place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in this condo and we will continue to choose K2. Dee is always helpful and great to work with. The condo as all the amenities you could want or need. It is beautifully decorated and always super clean. The beach is right across the street closer than if you stay in one of those high rise condo complexes. If you are looking for a great place for your family look no farther K2 is it. Sara Hall, Leeburg Georgia

Owner's Response: Thank you Sara for your continued confidence in choosing to spend your vacation time here. I know there are many options to choose from and that makes your decision to return three times all the more meaningful to me. I appreciate your specific highlights for why you continue to return each time. It is difficult for readers to realize just how close and easy it is to walk out the door and cross the street to be on the beach. For those who truly want a closeness to sand and water, you framed this point beautifully. It has always been a top priority to ensure a fresh, clean condo every time. Thank you for letting me and the readers know this goal continues to be my priority for every vacationer. Thank you for commenting on the decor. It is important to me that the condo has a comfortable, home like feeling that allows you to relax and settle into a peaceful stay while you enjoy the beach. I am so pleased to have you as a returning guest and hope that continues to be your choice in the years ahead. Your family is welcomed back always and it has been a pleasure having you! Until next time, Dee

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT stay. Everything was a as we expected.

The condo was clean and fresh, furnished as expected, as close to the beach as we needed and ready to make our stay enjoyable. We had ZERO issues and will try to stay with you in the future.

We relaxed on the beach, chartered a fishing trip, cooked fresh fish, went on an airboat ride with Capt. Mike at Airboat Adventures, swam with the dolphins at GulfWorld AND did I mention RELAXED on the BEACH.

Great vacation. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Greg and Janet, Wow! You sound like you had such a nice time. :-) Thank you for a glowing review of your stay. I could not be happier to hear that you were able to RELAX and that you took advantage of the many activities available nearby. Your review will help others to plan a memorable trip to the beach as well. I appreciate all the feedback. A review like this only challenges me to find ways to make things even better for the next time you come to stay...which I hope is sooner than later. I'm glad you both truly enjoyed staying here. Come again anytime. It was my pleasure to have you as my guests. Dee

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Condo looks just like the photos. Very clean and comfortable. Super comfortable bed. I liked having no stairs to climb at this ground floor condo. Across from beach, but, mere steps away...took maybe 30 seconds to reach sand. Close to the best restaurants, shopping, everything. I was lucky enough to have perfect weather with gorgeous sunrises/sunsets during my stay. My only (sort of) complaint...I couldn't find any spoons/forks in the kitchen...only butter knives. No big deal...I got plastic ware from local restaurant. I only ate at the condo once. I would definitely stay here again, given the opportunity, and, highly recommend. Owner responded quickly...very nice experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a great review. You have helped so many reviewers find a match for their beach vacation. I am happy you found everything to your liking and would love to return again. I only wish you had reached out to call or email during your stay. I was surprised to read about not finding the utensils. We always do a post and pre check of the condo to be sure everything is present from guest to guest. I double checked and they are still there, whew! When you return next time you will find them in the drawer nearest the dishwasher. You are a great guest and I would love to have you back anytime;-) until then, stay well. Thank you Dee

Great getaway !

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Southwind before, but a different unit. This unit was everything it advertised. Very clean and nicely decorated; super close to the beach.

Will definitely book here again and would recommend to others. Great for empty nesters and couples looking for a reasonable priced vacation stay that meets high standards. We felt very much at home. The owners were accommodating and good communicators.

Thank you for writing in such detail about all the things that you felt made this condo special. It is helpful for others who are looking for a place just like this one through the eyes of the renter. The key points you raised about "as advertised, very clean, nicely decorated, close to beach, priced well, and meets high standards" are all descriptions that I appreciate and hope to provide for every visitor! You are welcome anytime. Please remind me that you are returning in case I forget. Again, thank you and come back soon :-)
