About Kerry Whitehead

We are four Parrothead friends from Illinois and West Virginia who love the beach way of life. Upon visiting Panama City Beach we fell in love with the atmosphere and beautiful white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Although we enjoy our home away from home as much as we can we like to share it with others whenever possible. We hope you enjoy our place as much as we do.

Kerry Whitehead purchased this condo in 2011

Why Kerry Whitehead chose Florida Panhandle

We love our 'Penthouse' on the West side of Panama City Beach. Close to all the amenities and attractions the area has to offer but with a more relaxed laid back feeling. The direct access across Front Beach Road to the beach is a big benefit to us. There is also no public parking at our beach access which means no crowds! The back balcony overlooks green space and you will find plenty of opportunities for bird watching or just looking at the Gulf.

What makes this condo unique

You will find the over sized front porch with comfy chairs and table a popular hang out when you're just chilling or having a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail at night. The condo has a well appointed kitchen and is newly remodeled and decorated. Flat screens in the Master Bedroom and Living Room along with free WiFi and Cable. You won't want to leave.

Wonderful Rental Experience

Great stay at Southwind! Condo was clean and comfortable.The location was perfect for easy access to anything on the strip.We rode our motorcycles down for fall Thunder Beach and felt the parking was safe and well lit. Looking forward to staying there again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on our unit! October is one of the best times of the year to visit PCB and the rally is really fun. We look forward to your returning to our place. FYI we were down there recently and totally upgraded the smaller bedroom with new furniture and a new mattress. These changes should enhance your experience even more next time!

Amazing deal

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was an amazing experience. We were looking for a quick get away deal. Staying in someone's rental property can be touch and go. We were so impressed with the accommodations and the cleanliness of the place. It's literally across the street from the beach and we were there every chance we got. Unfortunately the few days we were there it was overcast more than sunny, but we were still non stop walking to the beach. There are so many options for places to eat and things to do. We weren't bombarded with fees like some of the other places around. I will definitely be looking here first for my next Florida vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking a time to review our property. September and October are normally beautiful months to visit PCB --- not as many people, warm water, and beyond the really hot summer days. There are so many festivals going on throughout the year, but September is the month when visitors can experience the Lobster Festival at Schooners. Great food and a lot of fun!

Very spacious and super clean! Only thing I didn't care for was it being on the 3rd floor with a 2 year old-- alot of ups and downs. Close to the pool and of course not a long walk from the beach. I've stayed at South Winds for the past 20+ years and they are all great! Would definitely look into renting this room again for future visits!

Owner's Response: I can well understand why you come back to South Windes for so very long! The water is so beautiful and the beaches are some of the prettiest I have seen. With the latest Fitbit craze, going up and down the stairs to the unit can add a lot of steps to your daily count for sure! Not only do we offer the opportunity to enjoy the PCB vicinity in an excellent location, but we can also help you become the envy of your Fitbit friends when you log in all those steps!

Beautiful condo within walking distance to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautiful. We had everything we needed. We were able to walk to the beach. The condo had plenty of space and even had great outdoor space. I would recommend reserving on a lower floor if you have an older person or small child-the stairs are "scary" and it's a long way to the third floor. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would definitely return in the future!

Owner's Response: We hope you will consider staying at our South Winds condo when you return to the area. We have so much fun when visiting, and we want others to have the same experience. The stairs seem daunting at first, but it gets easier each day. Being on the third floor gives a different perspective of the area that you can enjoy with your morning wake-me up cup of coffee and a good book.

Nice family friendly complex

  • 4 of 5

Very nice condo. Pictures were accurate representation. Back bedroom with balcony could use an upgraded bed/mattress. Living room was nicely furnished. Master bedroom with sitting area was great! Bed was very comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked, and anything we needed to prepare meals was available. Condo is in great location. Close to stores and activities, but also quiet. Great complex.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo. Each year we make a point of personally inspecting the unit to make sure it is maintained in excellent condition. Even though our guests normally spend more time outside the condo, we know that having a great base enhances the entire experience!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was a very enjoyable experience! The condo provided a beautiful and large layout for the price. We were first skeptical about the condo only being partial gulf view, but we were very pleased with the beach access from the condo. Though we were across the road from the beach, it was a very easy and short walk. Our specific condo was on the top (3rd) floor, and would not have been ideal for any persons that would have trouble with stairs. This condo had a great location (close to panama city beach), and we would definitely stay again. Overall this condo was in a great location, had a spacious and very modern layout, and allowed us a great vacation.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you were able to appreciate the condo's close proximity to beach access and the benefits that offers. We also enjoy the fact that there is no public parking by our beach access, so those who come to the beach are more limited in number. The beach, while busy, is beautiful and not so packed during the busy summer months that it is uncomfortable. Hope to host you and your family in 2016 when you choose your next vacation destination! Thanks for taking the time to post your review. Much appreciated.
