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 cushioned 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 no 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 25 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 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.

What makes this condo unique

The views of the gulf and coast line from the gulf-front balcony are peerless and, to use a cliché, breathtaking. The views of the inlet Lake Powell are as picturesque, and include a lot more active sea life such as our returning great blue heron, ospreys, pelicans, seagulls, and even fish and crabs. Being able to saunter down to the docks with a simple crab trap for dinner, or walk to the beach for a few pompano is hard to beat. Then add that Pinnacle Port is one of the closest resorts to the water, but at the very, very west end of Panama City Beach or at the very east end of famous Highway 30A and you have the best of both worlds - a quiet, family locale with the ability to jump in the car and take an ocean-front drive to either the vibrant goings on at Pier Park's upscale shopping and dining, or the more quiet and quaint beach towns along 30A.

Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. The beach was beautiful and not overly crowed. The condo was perfect for our family of 5. Our kids had the time kf their life chasing down monster blue crab(and eating them). It was definitely our best vacation to date!

5 Star property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! This is definitely the nicest condo we have rented in our many years of vacationing on the Gulf Coast. The unit was well equipped and very clean. The overall property is well maintained, pools are great, and the beach access is very convenient. Owners are extremely responsive and accommodating. We will be back.

Wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Pinnacle Port was great!! Well stocked with everything we needed. Very clean and well maintained. The views of gulf and lake made a great way to start the day.

Michael is wonderful. He loves to share his lovely place with others. Not once did I not get an answer to all the questions I ask. I had lots of them.

Location was great!! Quiet, safe and close to wonderful restaurants.

My hopes are to visit Michael’s home again.

Fantastic and memorable!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place to stay in Panama City Beach area look no further! This place is lovely, clean, and the owner was attentive and oh so accommodating! The condo was exactly as pictured on the site and clean as a whistle. We regularly visit Panama City Beach for weekend getaways and many of the condos we've rented are just that, rentals - mediocre furnishings, old and worn out, and below par dishes and cookware. Not this place! This condo is clearly a home that the owners use themselves and lovingly care for, remodeled with high-end finishes, good quality mattresses, and excellent cookware (I like to cook!), dishes and silverware. Attention to detail matter to these owners. Lots of amenities, clean pool, and quiet beach. Thank you Michael, for sharing your home with us and we will be back!
