About the property

Beachfront Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Fully updated and remodeled 2015-2016!

Imagine. Morning coffee or evening drinks on your living room balcony looking directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Look down at the white sand beach, beneath you. This is one of the very best located condominiums in all of Pinnacle Port. Fabulous Gulf views from the living room and dining table that only come from being ideally located on the wing closest to the water. Spend the day enjoying all that Pinnacle Port has to offer: two pools (one indoor heated), sauna, exercise room, the world famous white sand beach, and lighted tennis courts on-site. When you venture out, there are grills and a picnic area beach-side. Enjoy fishing? There’s a boat dock on Lake Powell that’s great for fishing. Have a boat? You’re welcome to use the dock and the boat ramp during your stay.

If you’re an early riser, or the living room balcony gets a little warm during the heat of the day, there’s another balcony off the master bedroom upstairs which overlooks the Lake and the beautiful Carrllon Resort. The 2nd upstairs bedroom overlooks the ocean as well. This 2 BR / 2 ½ Bath condominium has all the comforts you’d expect in a great resort setting like Pinnacle Port…TVs in every room, DVD player, Wi-Fi, tasteful and comfortable accommodations for up to 6. The unit is on two levels (kitchen and living area downstairs, bedrooms upstairs). This is ideal for families with young children, early risers, late risers, and everyone in-between.

Pinnacle Port is on the quiet and secluded far west end of PCB, adjoining Camp Helen State Park and South Walton. It’s a little quieter and more relaxed than in the middle of PCB. Pinnacle Port and the Carillon complex are a gated resort community with 24 hour security. No problem if you want all that PCB has to offer; it’s only 10 minutes away. The piers, the shopping, fabulous dining choices and all the beach-town recreational offerings that PCB is famous for – they’re just as close or as far away as you want them to be. 30A is just on the other side of Lake Powell and Destin is only 30 minutes away as well.

About Betty Jo

We both love being near the water and do so at every opportunity. We're both open water sailors and divers. We were very excited when a job relocation gave us the opportunity to purchase our dream retreat on the quiet, beautiful west end of PCB.

Betty Jo purchased this condo in 2012

Why Betty Jo chose Laguna Beach

Pinnacle Port is ideally located, right on the beach, and our unit has one of the absolute best views in the entire complex. The resort has a very laid-back feel to it. Spacious grounds for all sorts of outdoor activities; definitely not a concrete jungle feel. Close enough to everything we would ever want; while not that hemmed in feel. We're fortunate to have the ocean to our south, Camp Helen State Park east, the dune lake north and the beautiful Carillon complex to the east.

This location could not be replicated today. A developer today just wouldn't be able to assemble a beachfront area of this size, and couldn't make it work financially without having to make it much more densely developed.

An active HOA and a very good staff keeps the buildings, grounds, recreation facilities and beach in great shape.

What makes this condo unique

Updated and improved every year!

2013: Remodeled kitchen cabinets and new granite countertops

2014: New floors throughout the unit

2015: New appliances

2016: All new doors throughout, new paint throughout, new furniture in Ocean Bedroom and Living Room

Wonderful place to Relax!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! The beachfront condo was clean and well furnished (furniture, kitchen supplies along with books and dvds), and the owners, Betty Jo and Tim, could not have been more gracious and accommodating. From the balcony we watched dolphins and rays. The sunsets were spectacular! Might want to check the meteor shower calendar, as sitting on the balcony at night provides a wonderful viewing spot for shooting stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you, you were also great guests. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have seen dolphins and rays before from the balconies, never saw the comets and meteors, we have to remember to look up as well as down when we are there! I an see how that would happen though, it is so dark when looking out over the ocean, would make things in the sky easier to see than in the city. Appreciate your feedback.

The property was very clean.

The view was perfect. The owner was very caring about our stay. We went fishing in kayaks and swam in the gulf. The indoor outdoor pool was wonderful however closed at 730. I wish it would have been open later.

I believe this property has the best location in PCB.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation. Our condo was very comfortable with excellent views.

We were dissatisfied with the pool and snack bar. Our contract stated the pool was open until 11pm. Instead the pool closed at 7:30.

That was too early for families wanting to swim and enjoy the evening. The snack bar was not open daily either.

Over all we enjoyed our 2nd vacation to this property.

Owner's Response: Thank your for your review. We appreciate the feedback. I'm glad you liked our unit and the view. Re. the pool, we checked and found out that PCB changed the lighting requirements for pools and to comply Pinnacle Port had to close the pool at dusk for a period of time to get new lighting installed to meet the requirements. We apologize for the early pool closure but did not know that was happening at the time you were there.

Great location on the west end of Panama City Beach. The gated community is so safe and friendly with the beach secluded and relaxing. The condo was very clean, nicely furnished, so comfortable, and just as described on the site. The owners were accommodating, accessible, and dedicated to providing a wonderful stay. I highly recommend this property and hope to return in the not too distant future!

Pinnacle Port is PCB’s unique destination resort on the quiet west end beach. Close enough to all PCB has to offer (entertainment, restaurants, bars, Pier Park, sport fishing…all you expect from a classic Florida beach town), but with enough amenities on-property that maybe you’ll not want to leave. Pinnacle Port has two pools (one indoor), sauna, exercise room, and lighted tennis courts on-site. Add the world-famous white sugar beach of NW Florida. If that’s not enough, the back side of the resort is Lake Powell. We have our own private launch ramp and boat docks on Lake Powell with direct access to the Gulf about ¼ mile away.

Pinnacle Port and the surrounding Carillon Beach share 24-hour gated security. The beach and quiet streets of the resort are perfect for walking, biking, and just enjoying your time here.
