About the property

Gulf front, 2 King BR, 2.5 Baths, sleeps 4-6, w/breathtaking ocean-front view


Once you stay at Pinnacle Port (PP) resort, you'll want to come back again and again. Pinnacle Port is located away from it all, mid-way between Destin and Panama City - at the quiet, western-most edge of Panama City Beach (walking distance from the eastern edge of the Beaches of South Walton on highway 30A ). Nestled between the unspoiled Camp Helen state park and the private beach-home community of Carillon, Pinnacle Port resort is protected to the north by the picturesque inlet lake (Lake Powell), making Pinnacle Port resort one of the most secluded and quietest ocean-front resorts on the Panhandle.

Our 2 BR, 2.5 BA home is on the ninth and tenth floor (townhome with two bedrooms upstairs), at the far end of the best wing of the PP tower building. Its unobstructed views of the Gulf, Lake Powell, and the beautiful multi-million-dollar homes in the private Carillon community are breathtaking.

The unique two-balcony floor plan, which is not available in the mid-rise buildings, or in the 1 BR units in the tower, provides for 2 balconies - a 13' x 5' ocean-front and 13' x 5' lake-front balcony - on opposite sides of the condo, each with premium teak outdoor chairs and bistro sets.

Our unit has two Serta premium king-sized beds. The lake-side bedroom has a Serta Hotel Trump Select firm king mattress. The gulf-front king bedroom also has a Serta Perfect Sleeper Elite Smart Surface high-end, firm mattress - this is not a sofa bed.

A quick ride down the elevator and a walk down a short hall, and you then step off into the sand. At Pinnacle Port, you are on the beach immediately - no lengthy cheese maze board walks or gates to fiddle with.

About Michael Janocik

We are from Louisville, Kentucky. We have been vacationing along the Panhandle of Florida for about 23 years because we love the area, the beach, and the ocean. We've been blessed with the unique opportunity to buy a summer vacation and retirement home, and look forward to sharing it with other families who are looking for a great ocean-front vacation stay, at a great resort, at a great value.

Michael Janocik purchased this condo in 2014

Why Michael Janocik chose Laguna Beach

We selected Pinnacle Port due to the memorable vacationing experiences we have had here with our family. The property has fantastic ocean and inlet lake-front views. Getting to the beach is a breeze - no gates or board walk mazes, just steps from the elevator. Pinnacle Port is secluded, has a good selection of amenities, and offers a myriad of activities such as fishing, crabbing, kayaking, paddle boarding, or just relaxing on a quiet beach. Pinnacle Port's location, though secluded and quiet, is also a 10 or 20-minute scenic drive to Panama City or Destin to spend some time shopping, dining, and enjoying nightlife. It's also a family-oriented resort with affordable rental rates, especially compared with comparable resort condos in other complexes.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Pinnacle Port. The condo was a perfect fit for us. The the living area was a nice space to come back to and relax. Especially after you have been playing on the beach, sightseeing or after a great dinner. It is very warm and inviting with a good view of the lake.

The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal. The bedrooms upstairs are very comfortable. The master bedroom has a great view of the gulf. We really enjoyed opening the patio door and listening to the ocean waves hit the beach. The whole experience was great. I really liked the fact that it is a private community. Everyone we met was extremely friendly and courteous. Communication with the owners was easy. They were always very quick to respond.

We will definitely be going back. Not sure when, just know that it won’t be soon enough.

Clean and well taken care of

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. We went down for a weekend wedding and enjoyed the condo. One side views ocean and other side views lake. Michael has this well organized. Read his pointers before you go....From experience we had a hard time finding the place as most GPS dont send you to the correct place. PLEASE READ HIS INFORMATION. Alsowe had a small wifi problem and he addressed it in a timely manor. Thanks Michael I hope to be back. 💕?it

We had a great trip.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic trip. The condo is wonderful. It was very clean and had everything you would need. If you are looking for a nice, quiet place to relax, this is the perfect spot. It is also very convenient to restaurants and shopping. My husband spent time fishing and we also rented bikes one day in nearby Seaside.

Good Times at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo a few times before, and as usual, we had another great visit to PCB. The October weather was beautiful and so was the ocean. This condo has everything you need for an enjoyable trip. The owners are easy to work with and very responsive to any questions or concerns. This time we enjoyed kayaking Lake Powell, biking the Timpoochee Trail along Highway 30A, and hanging out at St. Andrews State Park.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! October is THE BEST TIME to be on Florida's Panhandle. I'm glad to know you biked along the Timpoochee Trail. My wife and I love that coastline scenic and safe biking "trail" (wide & paved) 18-mile path along 30A. We hope to host you again.

The Best!!

  • 5 of 5

We were had a great time! Place is super clean with all sorts of extras. The weather didn't cooperate so the ocean view was great. It was fun to watch the tropical storm from a secure, comfy spot. Lake Powell was fun to explore when the waves from the ocean were too strong.

We couldn't control the weather but glad we had such a nice place to stay. We've stayed at several places along the Gulf. This is the Best!! Thanks for everything!

Fall break on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in this unit. We love it. It's a joy to wake up in the morning and sit on the balcony overlooking the ocean. The kitchen has absolutely everything you need. It's a beautiful condo. The owner bends over backwards to make sure you have a great experience. I highly recommend renting this unit and we would certainly stay here again!
