About Judy Rowe

We have been coming to Panama City Beach since 1992 and it was 'love at first visit'. We came back year after year. In 2002 we purchased our penthouse condo at the Commodore Condominium, Unit 1304, at 4715 Thomas Dr, Panama City Beach FL 32408. Please feel free to map our location. If you love water, we feel that you'll love it here too.

Judy Rowe purchased this condo in 2002

Why Judy Rowe chose Panama City Beach

After looking at several condos we liked this one best because of its fantastic views of the Gulf to the west and Grand Lagoon, Shell Island and even greater Panama City to the east. It is on what is known as 'the quiet end of the Beach', and has a family friendly atmosphere. The condo itself has an excellent floor plan, large Gulf front windows and a larger beach-side balcony than other two bedroom condos that we had looked at. We retired in 2006 and had planned to stay here but recently bought a home in Panama City Beach near the condo.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the spectacular views of one of the world's most beautiful beaches, many fine restaurants within walking distance and the proximity to St Andrew's State Park. There are also several gift shops nearby. Our family and grandchildren enjoy the heated pool and playing at the beach. You can see on the Google Map feature on this website that you are nearly surrounded by water and water sports! We are happy to share our view of the Florida surf and sand with you and invite you to come and experience it for yourself. Dick & Judy Rowe

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great week we had, beautiful weather. We all loved the condo and enjoyed our visit. Last week was the 1st time to Panama and we fell in love with the area. Every day we went to the beach/pool except onThursday we rented a Pontoon from Scotty's boat rental's and went over to Shell Island. We have never done that before and loved the area. Looking forward to being in contact with you for next year, thanks again for sharing your condo.

The Best condo around!

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful! We always come here to get a few days rest and it's like coming home. It is always clean - clean enough to eat off the floor if you really want to know! Beds are comfy, kitchen is great - we do a lot of cooking, so it works well. Washer and dryer are an awesome bonus! They hardly get a break when we are around. The views are spectacular! Sunsets are beautiful. The pool is nice too, if you get tired of being sanded on the beach. Pier Park is also not too far away if you get a hankering to do some shopping! We have known Dick and Judy for a long time and they are the Best! Can't say enough good things about them! Super helpful and very gracious hosts! So look no further for the perfect condo - you just found it! But don't take our word for it, come and see for yourself!

Home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time I have rented this condo and I love it. I just feel at home when I walk through the door. It provided the perfect amount of relaxation and coziness. You can see the gulf for miles from the balcony and also from inside the condo as well. We ate almost every meal on the balcony enjoying the views. The entire condo is very clean and well taken care of. The master bed is amazing!!!! Beach chairs/toys are provided in the condo for the guests to use. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances/utensils for any meal you want to make. I am so glad there is a washer/dryer because we wash a lot of clothes at the beach with 3 kids:) The grounds at the condo are well kept and it is the perfect atmosphere for families with young children. Beaches on this end of Panama City are quiet and less crowded. We discovered the bar/grill next door this year and it was wonderful. Great food and you can walk to it from the condo. The Rowes are easy to work with and extremely nice people. I will continue renting from them each year:)

Everything we wanted & more and didn't break the bank!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I did VRBO. I searched, read reviews, weighed options.. and searched some more before choosing this condo. If you find yourself in a similar situation, look no more! This condo and the owner's were outstanding! We stayed comfortably with 5 people (3 between the ages of 17-21). The beds were excellent, the kitchen was well equipped with everything I needed to cook light meals and do a seafood boil and the views were great. I was really wanting a condo that had a more relaxed atmosphere and we sure did find it. The beaches were not crowded compared to a few other places we saw and we didn't have to wear those annoying wrist bands. We shopped across the Bay and saved a lot on grocery prices. We were also close to a lot of locally owned favorite restaurants. The pool was very nice and we had easy beach access. We will definitely stay with the Rowes again! Oh... the beach chairs, umbrella and beach goodies were awesome!

Great home, spectacular views, beautiful beach, relaxing pool! I loved this condo, and love the location. It's a bit quieter, less crowded and much more relaxing than the other end of the beach. There was a restaurant/bar right next door that was filled with locals and had excellent food and great live music nightly. The Rowes were very kind and accommodating, and I will definitely rent this condo again!

Excellent place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to take a family. The condo had everything we needed. Two large walk-in closets were wonderful, a large balcony with a great view, and a kitchen that was very well stocked. Our family had a great time and would love to stay here again. Thanks Dick and Judy!!!
