About Ashlie James

We lived in this beautiful condo for 6 years on Panama City Beach. Just recently we decided to build a home in Panama City nearer to our grand-children. It was wonderful waking up in the morning having coffee on the balcony overlooking the beach before our day started. We have celebrated many of our happiest memories in our condo on Panama City Beach.

Ashlie James purchased this condo in 2005

Why Ashlie James chose Gulf Lagoon Beach

We purchased this property because of location, security and one of the most luxurious properties located on Panama City Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Having covered private parking next to the elevator and a huge wrap around balcony makes this property so unique. We also love have a security gate to access the property. Our condo is very spacious and elegant. Each guest should feel they have plenty of room to have a relaxing vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at Unit 813. Well stocked with everything we needed for cooking and grilling. The place is beautiful and conviently located to elevators, parking spot was perfect for loading and unloading. We were 4 adults and 3 teen girls, more than adequate privacy as well as places for us all to be together inside condo. One suggestion.. supply beach lounge chairs. I did not mind renting 190.00 for the week, but would have been nice is available. Having said that there are several (5) or more beach chairs and umbrella supplied with condo!! There were also beach toys and a icemaker which was great for beach trips. Thank you. Will plan to stay again!

Great vacation! Beautiful condo with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room in this gorgeous condo for us, our college aged children and a couple of their friends. The grill and spacious balcony allowed for wonderful dinners watching the sunset! The property is beautiful and security is awesome. We have already recommended this property to friends and would definitely work with Ashlie again! My only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer.

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

I booked a 4 night stay. As it turned out, I wound up staying with friends in Destin for the first 3 nights. The last night, I stayed in this condo only to discover it was never cleaned from the previous visit. The place was dirty, carpets soiled, no linens on the master bed, pillow cases, nothing. You could only get one channel on the TV, not toilet paper, dirty towels left in the bathrooms and used soap in the soap dishes.

By the time I discovered this, it was too late to do anything about it.

Also, they now want you to wear these silly non-removable wrist bands the entire time you are on your vacation like you have escaped from a hospital or just got off a booze cruise. They used to have rubber green ones that you could wear when you were at the beach and take off when you went out to dinner or left the property. The guard demanded that I put this thing on and would not just give me one so I could carry it with me. So I refused.

As far as the property is concerned, I think it is one of the best in PCB.

However they need to refund my money for my stay and not charge me a cleaning fee.

Feel free to call me if you have any questions!!

OLD AND NOT CLEANED

  • 1 of 5

WE HAVE STAYED AT EN SOLEIL A FEW OTHER TIMES BEFORE. BUT THIS TIME WE WENT THRU YOU. WHEN WE WENT INTO THE OFFICE TO GET OUR PACKAGE IT WAS NOT THERE- THE HOME OWNER WAS NOT READY FOR US- STEPHANIE HAD TO CALL HER - WE HAD NOT PARKING PASSS- NO CODE TO GET INTO THE CONDO- WHEN WE WENT DOWN TO THE POOL THE CODE TO THE BEACH WAS NOT CORRECT. I HAD TO GO OUT TO BUY CLEANING SUPPLIES. THE FIRST THING I HAD TO DO WAS WASH THE FLOORS BECAUSE THEY WERE STICKY AND DIRTY, THE TOWELS I USED WERE BLACK WHEN I FINISHED WITH THE FLOORS. WHEN I WENT TO PUT THINGS AWAY IN THE BATHROOM DRAWERS THE HAD LEFT OVER HAIR IN THEM IT WAS TRULLY GROSS. THERE WAS NO HOT WATER WHEN WE WENT TO SHOWER (HAD TO CALL THE HOMEOWNER AFTER TAKING A COLD SHOWER TO GO OUT) THE DOOR TO THE PATIO WOULD NOT LOCK- THE LIVINGROOM FURNITURE AND RUG ARE VERY OLD. WHEN WE LEFT I LEFT THE PLASCE CLEANER THAN WHEN WE GOT IT. I WOULD NEVER RECOMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, gorgeous and spacious condo, great location!

My family and I stayed at En Soleil for Spring Break and had a fantastic time! The property is well-maintained and located right on the Gulf. With two hot tubs and two pools (one was heated as well!), the Gulf and sugar white sand we had plenty to do without leaving the property!

The unit is spacious and very well equipped including an ice maker to keep all of your drinks frosty ;). The furniture is comfortable and everything was very clean. It also has brand new patio furniture and a grill on the enormous balcony overlooking the pool and Gulf.

The unit is located close to kid friendly attractions like miniature golf and there are lots of restaurants nearby for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We loved out stay and will definitely be back!

Great place near it all but away from crowds.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is very nice with a large balcony. The furniture and rugs are past the honeymoon period but clean. The toilets were not cleaned properly. Otherwise we had a great stay and would visit again I reserve 5 star for only the best. The owner does get 5 stars though. We had a few issues at first with the hot water and she was on it pronto! The gym is less than adequate but functional. The pools are incredible. The security is 5 star and always friendly as long you are wearing the required armbands.

The only other thing I will add was a curious smell in the lobby. Not offensive, but reminensent of baked pizza - oddly strong and persisting the entire stay.

You are close to St. Andrews state park is a must visit, just a short 10 min drive. Wildlife everywhere with nature trails and the best shelling around.

Overall- I will return to this unit because of the owner.

Owner's Response: Hello Stephen, Thank you so much for your comments and suggestions. We have just replaced the patio furniture and will be updating our interiors. Our housekeeper was made aware of the ring in the toilet and we have remedied. Our pools and the EnSoleil property is outstanding! We really hope to have your family back next year! Sincerely, Ashlie

Very clean with with up-to-date, quality furnishings and appliances.

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in several different units in En Soleil over the years, but found this one to be our most enjoyable stay. Did not have a “worn rental” feel, but rather felt like someone’s residence.

Key to us is: 1) owner/property manager access, 2) clean, 3) appliances in proper working order, 4) furnishings. This unit met, or exceeded all of these. The plantation shutters in all ocean side windows were great improvement. Will stay again.
