Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Carillon Beach Ph IV - Pinnacle Port Unit A717

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)


The condo is a townhouse style on the 7th and 8th floors of the Tower. As you enter this condominium you are presented with an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico and you know you are at the beach. Immediately off the foyer you notice the beautifully appointed master bedroom with adjoining full bath, flat screen TV and glorious views of the ocean. Wifi available in the unit.

As you venture up the stairs you find the dining room and sitting space adjoining the kitchen through a breakfast bar area. The kitchen and dining areas look out through a large picture window onto an unobstructed view of the Gulf. As you walk toward the living room, you pass the laundry room and another well-appointed full bathroom. In the living room you find two comfortable sofas in addition to a Queen Murphy Bed neatly tucked away until needed. Also for your enjoyment is a 32” HD LCD TV and DVD player. For your enjoyment there are CD’s and DVD’s available in the condo. The balcony off the living room over looks Lake Powell and the Gulf of Mexico.

Our luxurious condominium is perfect for those who wish to relax and take a break from the stress and stimulation of day-to-day life. It is wonderfully located at the very secluded west end of Panama City Beach within the gated community of Carillon Beach to the east and a state park and bird sanctuary to the west. The secluded location literally offers the best of both worlds; away from the crowds and yet minutes to all the activities.

On site you are able to enjoy 2 swimming pools, 1 of which is heated year around, tennis and basketball courts, children’s playground, saunas, shuffle board, arcade; boat, paddle boats kayak, bicycle rental, free WiFi if you brought your lap top and a free internet café if you didn’t. Also on site there are wet slips with ample parking for boat trailers and convenient on site boat launch. It is just a short and pleasant walk to numerous restaurants and supermarkets. Or just visit the Cabana Cafe for a snack poolside, picnic meal for the beach, or to go orders.

As noted in the Activities section; as you travel west from the gated community it is only a 10 minute ride to novel and interesting communities including Rosemary Beach and Seaside on beautiful Hwy 30-A (both featured in numerous national magazines for their concepts and architecture). If you choose to travel west on Hwy 98 about 25 miles, you arrive in Destin, at the largest designer outlet mall in the area. If going east as you leave the gate house following the beach road you find yourself in the heart of Panama City Beach and all its fare, including the new Pier Park shopping area, movie theatres, amusement parks, putt putt, cinemas, restaurants, etc.


This is a non smoking unit with no pets.

Guest making reservation must be 25 yrs/older.

About Kathy & Darrin Dean

My husband and I are the owner/manager. We have now retired to Pinnacle Port and live onsite. During our careers we would occasionally retreat to the beach to re-energize. Of all the beaches we have retreated to - this is, by far, our favorite.

Kathy & Darrin Dean purchased this condo in 2011

Why Kathy & Darrin Dean chose Sunnyside

The sugar white sand dunes and emerald waters are soothing and inviting. The sound of the waves from the condo is therapeutic and music to my ears.

What makes this condo unique

I enjoy the unique, serene villages that make up the neighboring Beaches of South Walton and feel secure at this gated community. Yet, a little more action is close by in Panama City Beach.

This unit is beach front and lake front so the fisherman love the location too.

Did I mention shopping?? Even the necessary grocery store is right around the cornor.

Thanks for stopping by!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Views and location were perfect!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation week here. The beach views were amazing and we loved the amenties it had. It could use a few updates inside the condo, but other than that it was perfect. I would definitely stay here again.

not what we expected but grew to really like.

  • 4 of 5

It was a bit smaller than expected and there were no fans, that being said the bedroom is downstairs with only a tiny vent for air and the bathrooms were cramped so we slept on the fold out bed in the living room upstairs to stay cool. It was very comfortable though and for the price it was perfect and we quickly grew to enjoy it. Def great for a newly Wed couple on a budget wanting their own private but humble paradise. Does need a little updating but other than that has everything needed. The owners seemed really nice.

Amazing! The condo was adorable & it was nice to be off the strip.

  • 5 of 5

I truly enjoyed staying here. The condo was comfortable and felt like being home away from home. It was nice having separate bathrooms for my husband and I to get ready in. I loved the fact there was a washer and drier in the condo! Guess who doesn't have to do laundry when they get home from a relaxing vacation?! While it's removed from "the strip", it's close enough you don't really notice. The beaches weren't crowded, either. All in all, we look forward to our next beach trip in 2017. And, we will most likely book this condo again.

Excellent place for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to spend a week playing and relaxing in the waters of a private beach. We watched various pods of dolphins cruise through, over morning coffee, and enjoyed snorkeling and playing in the surf in the afternoons.

The water was beautiful! Gorgeous emerald and blue hues, with great weather.

We went out walking on the beach at night and saw the little sand crabs scuttling around in the tides and found a lot of shells.

It's nice to be so close to the beach, and a welcome relief at the end of the day, to walk from the beach straight into the complex, and be just a quick elevator ride and short walk down the hall to your condo door.

We also took advantage of the grilling area this year, too, and loved that convenience.

Kathy and Darrin are gracious hosts, and this was our second stay at this condo. It's well-equipped and off the busy strip enough to enjoy the peaceful sound of the waves and the surf, and beautiful starry nights, yet close enough to be able to go places on the beachfront strip that we like to visit.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a nice time! That's the purpose. I was sorry to miss you, I needed to be in South Florida but we are certainly happy you had a great vacation. You are welcome to your home away from home anytime! Thanks again. K. Dean

Directly on the beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

The ocean and beach here are absolutely beautiful and you could not get any closer to the beach. The condo is a little on the older side, but it was clean and had enough room for our family of 4. It's just outside the crowd of PCB, but close enough to go into for dinner if ya want. There are 2 grocery stores less than 5 minutes away. We enjoyed walking up the beach towards the state park, we went snorkeling and found tons of shells and my son loved seeing all the fish. We had a great week and will definitely go back.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect size for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 boys-ages 6 and 8). The condo was very clean. The owner answered all questions in a timely manner through email. We plan to rent again next summer!
