About Mike McDonald

I am a native Floridian living in the Atlanta area with my wife Randy and son Steven. We love the beach and hope to spend more time in PCB when we retire. We love all water sports, have a cat named Ziva , and are active in our church.

Mike McDonald purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mike McDonald chose Panama City Beach

The view of the incredible pool, beach, and gulf is what won us over. The famous emerald green water and white sand beaches across the Florida panhandle is the best in Florida. Also, the resort like atmosphere at SOP made it a great value. Now that both piers are completed, evening strolls or fishing with the panoramic beach lights in view makes for a fun evening activity. With the new international airport, and the total rebuilding of South Thomas Drive, and free trolley car transportation, PCB is reinventing itself into a more family friendly beach resort.

What makes this condo unique

I keep comming back to the view. It is spectacular! I never get tired of sitting on the balcony and enjoying the view....even when there is a storm brewing! The close proximity to a reserved parking space on the same floor as our unit makes for a short walk with suitcases and groceries. The Poolside grill makes an excellent blackened grouper sandwich. As a musician, I also enjoy listening to music and videos on the Surround Sound Home Theatre system in the family room.

This condo was a great fit for our family. We had a wonderful trip.

  • 5 of 5

912 has a spectacular view of the beach. The condo was clean when we arrived. It was easy to get into and wrist bands were left in condo which was convenient. A few notes about the property: We went during spring break so there were a lot of high school/college kids around that love to yell off their balconies at night. The pool is not heated, which pretty much left it unusable since it was March. The beach is beautiful. I would suggest renting a chair/umbrella because it gets crowded. The workout room was not clean at all. Old equipment and full of dust. The indoor pool was closed for an exhaust problem but no one was working on it. Lastly, the elevators take forever. We took the stairs multiple times. Overall, we had a wonderful family vacation. Pier Park and Conservation Park are awesome family spots. Will probably be back.

My family can't say enough about our week long stay in Unit 912! So beautiful, lay out is perfect if you have small children or teenagers, the view is amazing, and the word accommodating would be an understatement. From kitchenware, cookware, and dishes to extra sheets and blankets, beach toys provided for the kiddos, movies and games available, washer and dryer is not too small, very roomy and quiet, convenient reserved parking....literally steps from the front door! I love the small touches such as a book to hand write your review, a handwritten binder suggesting places to eat and brochures with maps for the fun stuff to do. No regrets! Do yourself a favor...stay here. I just hope I haven't booked the same time you want to come! LOL

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd time to stay in Mike's condo at SOP. We do not have any complaints (besides amenity fees, which i knew ahead of time). The view is great. The condo is nice. We have 2 small children (5 & 2). The bunk room is very accommodating as well as beach toys for the kids. The pool is awesome. The location of SOP is great. Wal-Mart, a convenient store, Waffle House and Pineapple Willys are all right at your fingertips. We would stay here for the 3rd time if it works out.

Great room, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, kids (age 11 and 7), and I had a really great time at Shores of Panama, and this room in particular. The owner, Mike, quickly replied to all questions before and after booking, and there was great communication through the whole process. Our security deposit was returned within about a week. The room was beautiful -- very clean and well taken care of. The 9th floor was perfect -- not too high, and not too low. There was a great view from a really long balcony. Also, having the reserved parking spot steps from the room is definitely something worth considering when comparing to other rooms. The kids loved the bunk room and video game system. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies. The resort itself, especially the pool, was also great. Would definitely stay again!

Miracle Strip Amusement Park

Shell Island area ( requires access by boat ) has herds of wild deer and is a major transit area for grey bottle nose dolphins. Adjacent to Shell Island and just 3-4 miles drive from the condo is St. Andews Park offering boat launch, picnic, camping beachcombing, swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving with a 'natural' flavor. We recommend renting a pontoon boat to enjoy the dolphins, shell island, and the PCB Bay area.
