About Linda Nordlund

My husband and I are both in our 50s and live in a NW suburb of Chicago. I am the Prepress Customer Service Specialist for our local Newspaper and my husband is a Custodian for a nearby School.

Be sure to check the owners tab for more reviews as my previous guest book ceased operatation.

Linda Nordlund purchased this condo in 2004

Why Linda Nordlund chose Panama City Beach

My husband and I had been looking for a place for a couple years in Arizona before we bought our condo in Panama City Beach. We decided on Panama City Beach at the time because you could still get reasonably priced condos on the Gulf compared to other parts of Florida. We are very glad we did and enjoy using our condo and renting it out when we are not using it.

What makes this condo unique

Our most favorite part of owning this condo is the balcony. It is a private balcony and we just love sitting out be it just enjoying our coffee in the morning or watching the beautiful sunsets. It is also very nice on cool days when the sun is out as facing the gulf, we are blocked from the cooler Northern breeze. There are many golf courses nearby with one being practically across the street. Last, but not least is the Beach. Beautiful white sand and Emerald green waters.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Location, Location, Location! This condo is located in the center of all of the P.C. Beach activity. It is conveniently located next door to Pineapple Willy's, so good food and drinks are just a few steps away. Wal-Mart is across the highway and the area is surrounded by a bunch of beach shops and entertainment.

The condo is just right for 2 adults and 2 small children. There are 3 pools available, so finding a place beside the pool isn't difficult.

Thank you very much for letting my family stay in your condo. We had a great time!

We could not have stayed at a more beautiful Condo. As you can see from the Balcony picture our view was AMAZING. Condo was so clean. I wish I could have taken the bed home with me, best sleep I have had in years. Everything was there for you in the condo, and you never had to leave to gated complex. Restaurants and stores at you fingertips. Plan on taking my Mother next Christmas. Hoping to stay at this exact Condo. Thank you Linda

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We love our little piece of Heaven and we try and make sure out guests will love it as much as we do. The balcony is what sold us on buying this unit as it didn't face the the other tower.

Amazing Time

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our stay. Great size for two people. The condo was really clean and lovely furnished. Linda was wonderful to e-mail us and answer any questions we had. We had a great time with wonderful weather and really enjoyed our stay there. Pineapple Willy's being next door was a great bonus for a quick lunch or drink. We will definitely consider coming back to this condo and Panama City Beach.

Best vacation and condo we ever rented in PCB

  • 5 of 5

We rented from the owner not the resort and from start to finish, it was amazing. The resort is in an excellent location. The condo was equipped with everything that my family needed and wanted during our stay. The view was fabulous and we saw dolphins several different times in the afternoons from the balcony. We visit PCB a few times a year and this was by far our best vacation. The condo was SUPER clean. In fact, it was one of the cleanest condos that we've ever stayed in. Super duper clean and smelled refreshing when we checked in. I can not complain on one thing. We will be returning next year. Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful, clean and amazing condo.

Very Nice Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

Cute place with a great view off the balcony of the ocean! We loved being able to sit out on the balcony and see dolphins in the morning and still feel like we were on the beach when we were in the condo for meals, etc. Wonderful location, close to Walmart so we could get food to prepare in the well stocked kitchen and close to Shell Island and other activities. Pretty much had everything we needed! Owner very nice and quickly responded to anything we contacted her about. Even had a supply of books and DVD which were nice to utilize while we were there. 3 pools to use that were lovely and nice to use when we didn't want to be in the ocean. Would absolutely recommend this place to friends and family and would certainly go back!!

We just returned from our vacation and could not stop talking about what a great time we had. Honestly we don't have any complaints about the condo.....the views were excellant, everything we needed was there and the beach was excellant. The only downfall was the construction around the condo but other than that we had an amazing time. Thanks Linda!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. The construction is suppose to be done this year last I heard. The are going to put in bike lanes and a trolley lane not to mention some nice landscaping. They do seem to move awfully slow though.
