About the property

Newly renovated and only steps to the beach. Check out our feedback!

Southwind is a low rise condo complex on the quiet West End of PC Beach. Our Unit is on the 3rd floor directly across from pool with a fantastic oversized front porch to sit in the afternons and watch the kids in the pool. There is a gulf view off the 2nd bedroom balcony; a great spot for morning coffee watching the sun rise over the Gulf of Mexico. It is only about a 3 minute walk from the front door until toes in the sand.

We purchased the condo summer of 2014 and just finished updating condo with new furniture, flooring, fixtures, appliances and granite kitchen countertops. Our condo is the largest floor plan, at over 1050 sq ft, in the complex. Southwind is a low rise family friendly condo complex with approximately 80 units located on the west end of Panama City beach directly across the street from the beautiful beaches and the Gulf of Mexico. You can park directly in front of the unit and we are located on the top floor (3rd) directly across from the pool. It is approximately a 2 minute walk from the condo to the beach. Our condo does have a gulf view from the west facing covered patio which is great for morning coffee. The extra large front porch directly overlooks the pool so you can sit under the ceiling fans while the kids are at the pool. The unit has wifi access from the Southwind Clubhouse along with 3 flat screen televisions and 3 DVD players.

Our condo will sleep comfortably sleep 6 as the master bedroom has a king bed along with flat screen television. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the gulf view balcony is attached to it. The living room has a new recliner, leather furniture, flat screen HD television and wifi. We have 2 cots that are great for kids which will allow the condo to comfortably sleep 6. There is a pack n play along with high chair in the unit for guests with small children. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you would need to fix a meal and we provide all linens, along with washer and dryer.... everything you need for a relaxing vacation! We have almost completely updated the unit since taking ownership in June of 2014 and updates include bathroom fixtures, paint, flooring, stove, microwave, flat screen televisions. Please read our reviews from the guests who have stayed with us.

We are approximately 5 minutes west of Pier Park and in very close proximity to Frank Brown park for summer baseball and softball tournaments. The complex has tennis courts, shuffleboard, and the pool rarely crowded for your enjoyment.

About Gary Plunkett

My family of 5 absolutely loves the great weather and beautiful beaches of Panama City Beach Florida.

Gary Plunkett purchased this condo in 2013

Why Gary Plunkett chose West Panama City Beach

We love the quiet west end location of Southwind; it is just a short drive to Pier Park but this end of Panama City Beach is much more laid back and family friendly. We love sitting on the balcony in the mornings enjoying our coffee and watching the water. This condo is about 1100 sq. ft and with 3 kids (and their friends they always have to bring) it has plenty of space to spread out. From the large front porch you can see everything going on at the swimming pool, shuffle board, and tennis courts and it is shaded from the hot afternoon sunshine.

Met and exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This condo met and exceeded our expectations. It was very clean when we arrived and well furnished. There was plenty of room for our family of 5. The master bedroom was very large and nicely decorated. Even though it does not sit directly on the beach, the back balcony has an excellent view of the sand and water. The very short walk to the beach is direct and easy. Walking back and forth from the condo takes no time at all. The front balcony is huge and is an excellent place to sit and watch your kids at the pool which is directly in front of the condo.

While certain parts of Panama City are busy and crowded, this condo is located in a very non-congested area yet is very close to Pier Park. There are many very good restaurants close by. We visited Thomas' Donuts several times during our stay for both breakfast and lunch.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay. The owners are very nice and easy to work with. They really make sure you enjoy your visit.

We had a fabulous time at this condo. Everything we needed we were accommodated with having. The beach was right across the street with easy access. We enjoyed the Seabreeze Jazz Festival which was only ten minutes away. We want to rent it again soon. Thank you for having us.
