Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Carillon Beach - Pinnacle Port Condos

1 bedroom, 2 baths. White sandy beach views. Sleeps 4 adults & 2 children.

Pinnacle Port is located at the far west end of Panama City Beach nestled between Fort Helen State Park, a protected bird sanctuary, and the upscale, gated community of Carillon Beach.

Our spacious design will comfortably sleep four. Downstairs is a large bedroom with a king sized bed and a bath with gorgeous beach front views and sounds. Upstairs is the a living room with a sleeper sofa and balcony view overlooking Lake Powel and a beautiful fully equipped kitchen and a dining room overlooking the Gulf with another full bath.

It is tastefully decorated with a nautical theme and one of only a few units with two full baths making it convenient for four people.

The property has many activities to keep your family busy. The large pool is attached to the tower building and offers a roof over half of the pool. This pool is heated in the winter months. A small pool is across the parking lot near the tennis courts. There are four tennis courts for day use but not available at night due to the turtle light ordinance. Shuffleboard, horseshoe and bochi courts will keep you active at a slower pace. Brand new grills are located in the picnic area and a children's playground is nearby. Men and women's separate saunas are located on the ground floor of the tower building. The exercise room is open for use by those over the age of 16. There is a WIFI hotspot in the room. Relax in one of our many swings overlooking Lake Powell and in our gazebo the natural 880 acre Lake Powell. A canoe, kayaks, standup paddle board and a paddle boat may be rented for use on the lake. A marina and boat slips can also be rented for Pinnacle Port guests. Docks on property allow for some very good fishing. but make sure you get your Florida fishing license! Everyone will feel safe with a 24/7 guard gate and patrolling security guards.

About Buddy and Brenda Crain, Owners / Keri and Darlene Breland, Managers

Keri and Darlene Breland have recently taken over as Booking Assistants for Buddy and Brenda, their brother-in-law and sister. They have stayed at Buddy and Brenda's condo on several occasions and have enjoyed the beach front views at this Pinnacle Port condo.

Buddy and Brenda Crain are originally from Pine and Bogalusa Louisiana, and now reside in Powell, Tennessee, a small community just north of Knoxville. They love to travel and own rental properties in both Florida and The Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Buddy keeps the condo updated and has recently added the banquette in the kitchen that can double as extra sleeping area for children. Brenda has furnished the rooms with a nautical theme. You'll notice her name on several of the paintings hanging on the walls throughout the condo. They want their guests to feel comfortable at their home away from home.

The relaxed atmosphere drew Buddy and Brenda to Pinnacle Port in 1992. Surrounded by the gulf, Phillips inlet and Lake Powell on one side and the quaint Carillon Beach community on the other, creates a serene, family vacation or an enchanted romantic get-a-way. Just removed enough from the crowded tourist beaches yet close enough to visit the nearby attractions in Panama City Beach.

An ok Option (But not Clean)

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here with my daughters for three nights, the owner is very nice answered all my questions and was very accommodating on my requests. The condo is good enough for a short stay and has everything you need from bath towels to all the kitchen utensils. The first floor is the master bedroom and second is the main living area with a pullout couch. Its best for a couple vs. a family, since the pull out couch is in the main living area, so if you want to put the kids to bed an handout for bit it not the best. I ended putting the kids in the master and sleeping upstairs on the couch.

Overall not bad!!

My reason for the three starts is the cleanliness of the property, not sure what the cleaning people do but the condo was not clean. The upstairs bathroom was dirty, the cups were not clean, there is dust everywhere, and the fan in the living room is disgusting. Not sure if this is the owners fault but i hope they give the cleaning people a piece of their mind.

P.S. not sure what cleaning fee covered, but i had to clean before we started using the condo. A little disappointing!!!!!

Very affordable & nice condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The condo was fully equipped &everything worked properly. I thought the accommodations were very homey and quaint. Being on the beach is handy so you can, come back for lunch instead of lugging even more stuff tho the beach. I would certainly come back again.

Family of 5 from Missouri

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough nice things. A great rental starts with the people who operate it. Great communicators, quick response times for any needs/questions we had.

The views are awesome from the unit. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. My kids are 14, 12, and 8. We even brought a queen size air mattress fearing we would need it because it is a 1 bedroom. We never used it.

It is really nice to be in the same building as the swimming pool which is an indoor/outdoor combo type pool. The kids loved it and even swam during the rain because the pool is partially covered on one end.

The unit is on the 5th floor, elevators are fast and we never felt a long wait. We even ran the stairs a couple times for the sake of fitness.

The resort is also on the outskirts of Panama City Beach so it is a much "quieter" area than if you stayed further east down the beach.

If I had to knit pick one thing is that the old VHS player in the Master Bedroom has to go. Time for an update. :)

We really enjoyed this place. We have stayed in the area several times over the years.

As soon as the life schedule is figured out for next year we may return to this unit.

Beautiful and Bright

  • 5 of 5

This condo was clean, well decorated, felt like "home" and absolutely love the views! Owners and managers very kind and responsive. The only thing that would be good for someone to know is that there are two floors - you enter on the main floor with a bedroom and you have to go up a flight of stairs to get to the kitchen and living room. This is a very good rental for up to 4 - it has a master bedroom and then a pull out couch upstairs in the living room. The views are amazing because you can see the beach (ocean) and the lake as well. You can also get a great cross breeze through the condo because of the way the windows are situated.
