About the property

Gulf front, 2 King BR 2.5 Baths, sleeps 4-6, no extra fees!



Once you stay at Pinnacle Port (PP) resort, you'll want to come back again and again. Pinnacle Port is located away from it all mid-way between Destin and Panama City - at the quiet, western-most edge of Panama City Beach (near the eastern edge of the Beaches of South Walton on highway 30A ). Nestled between the unspoiled Saint Helen state park beach and the private beach-home community of Carillon, Pinnacle Port resort is protected to the north by the picturesque inlet lake (Lake Powell), making Pinnacle Port resort one of the most secluded and quietest ocean-front resorts on the Panhandle.

Our 2 BR, 2.5 BA home is on the ninth and tenth floor (townhome with two bedrooms upstairs), at the far end of the best wing of the PP tower building. Its unobstructed views of the Gulf, Lake Powell, and the beautiful multi-million-dollar homes in the private Carillon community are breathtaking.

The unique two-balcony floor plan, which is not available in the mid-rise buildings, or in the 1 BR units in the tower, provides for 13' x 5' ocean-front and lake-front balconies on opposite sides of the condo, each with premium teak chairs and tables.

Our unit has two Serta premium king-sized beds. The lake-side bedroom has a Serta Hotel Trump Select firm king mattress. The master king bedroom also has a Serta Perfect Sleeper Elite Smart Surface Redding high-end, firm mattress - this is not a sofa bed.

A quick ride down the elevator and a walk down a short hall, and you then step off into the sand. At Pinnacle Port, you are on the beach and a few seconds to the water.

About Michael Janocik

We are from Louisville, Kentucky. We have been vacationing along the Panhandle of Florida for about 23 years because we love the area, the beach, and the ocean. We've been blessed with the unique opportunity to buy a summer vacation and retirement home, and look forward to sharing it with other families who are looking for a great ocean-front vacation stay, at a great resort, at a great value.

Michael Janocik purchased this condo in 2014

Why Michael Janocik chose Florida

We selected Pinnacle Port due to the memorable vacationing experiences we have had here with our families as tenants. The vacation property because it offers fantastic views of the ocean and Lake Powell, has extraordinarily easy beach access, is very close to the ocean, and is secluded, has a good selection of amenities, and offers a myriad of activities such as fishing, crabbing, kayaking, paddle boarding, or just relaxing on a quiet beach. Pinnacle Port's location, though secluded and quiet, is also reasonably close to Panama City and Destin to spend some time shopping, dining, and enjoying nightlife. It's also a family-oriented resort with affordable rental rates, especially compared with comparable resort condos in other complexes.

Comfortable and well-appointed!

  • 5 of 5

Pinnacle Port is our second home and we rented this unit when our family unit was unavailable. The location in the complex offers 2 great balcony views and lots of quiet. Everything is nicely and recently updated. The condo is very well organized, with lots of extras available for use (beach chairs, blankets, baby crib, etc.). We love to cook and were most impressed by the quality of cookware and kitchen supplies. Will definitely rent this unit should the need arise again!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time staying at this condo and I was blown away with the detail the owner put into the condo. Everything we needed was already in the condo. The owners have put a lot of time into every detail of this condo. The condo was clean and the beds were comfortable. Pinnacle Port has all kinds of activities on site that the family can participate in. At the office you can rent kayaks, shuffleboard, basketball, tennis equipment, and more. The sports equipment had a cheap refundable deposit and you can swap the equipment out with different equipment at any point during your stay.

The beach was clean and not crowded. We had 2 adults and 4 teenagers and we were able to fit into this condo without any issues. Two of the teenagers slept on high-end blow up mattresses, which they said were more comfortable than their beds at home. I definitely plan on staying here again.

Sunrise on the ocean....Pelican precision flying.....eagles and ospreys over the dune lake!

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself was upscale, very clean with an ocean motif featuring sea turtles and pelican art. Very cool. One might take for granted the accommodations, but the beds were very comfortable, and the newly tiled rain shower a treat. The white sand beach was just out the door, with both a gulf front walk or a short stroll to the edges of Lake Powell the largest of the dune lakes along HWY 30 A. Did I mention the four tennis courts, volleyball, shuffleboard and can even rent paddle boards or kayaks in season for use either in the lake or in the channel out to the big water. But in addition to the property itself and all the recreational options, did I mention biking, beyond even the warm weather, the salt air, and the sound of the waves rushing the shoreline the most incredible part of our stay was the views from the windows, bringing the outside inside. Both levels have a deck, one side is a view of the gulf and looking down over Carillon Beach. The other with a great view of Lake Powell. And the lakeside had bird life and boats, a few fisherman, and almost daily either eagles or osprey soaring about or sitting on top of an old post having lunch with a fish. On the ocean side the amazing pelicans fly along in mind boggling precision, sometimes at the top of the building, sometimes seeming to be just a few inches above the ocean waves in tight formation. The Blue Angels must pattern their flying after the pelicans, not the other way round. I could watch them all day and never figure out how they (the pelicans) do this, as they appear to be rather clumsy birds when sitting on the dock and don't seem to have any foot speed or even good balance UNTIL they begin to fly. And then, in flight they seem like a wholly other thing, magicians of aerodynamics, putting all other big birds to shame. Truly they are a wonder.

Everyone will have their favorite aspects of a stay at Pinnacle Port. I love the ocean, the beaches, the sun, the breeze, the salt smell, the serenity and the beauty of God's creation.

Thanks for a great stay and thinking of everything so we only had to decide which part of this special place to enjoy on any particular day.

Relaxing stay at a top notch condo!

  • 5 of 5

My visit to this condo was amazing! The condo was very clean, neat, updated, cozy and right on the beach! There were countless little touches in each room that made staying at the unit a pleasure. The beach where the condo is located was quiet and scenic. I thoroughly enjoyed many walks along the water each day. I cooked in most meals and found everything I needed already supplied in the kitchen. I did venture out for a dinner and lunch - so many delicious places near by! The owner was a pleasure to work with and welcomed any question I raised. I will be staying here again.

My family and I have stayed at Pinnacle Port for over a decade. We go every year in July for the Softball World Series. We discovered this unit 2 years ago and plan to stay in this unit for many years. It is by far the most update, clean, well stock unit we have ever stayed in. I have stayed in condos thru out the Florida pan handle for 30 years and the owners of this unit are the most conscience owners I have ever dealt with.We will be staying there for 2 weeks in July of 2017 also.I meant to write a review in July but never got around to it. I just logged onto the site to pay my deposit for our next stay and read the one negative comment out of 57 and could not let anyone reading the comments to have second thoughts about renting this unit. It makes me sad that one person could try to do damage to owners that have worked so hard to make their place as nice as this unit has become. Good luck to the Janoicks. I hope this helps to ease the minds of anyone thinking of renting this unit. P.S. The response from the owner is spot on accurate.
