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 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.

I highly recommend this beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week! I absolutely loved our two views from the balconies. One overlooking the gulf and the other the beautiful lake. The condo was so updated and very clean! It also had a very nice washer and dryer which come in handy when you are at the beach! I really loved the short walk down to the beach from the first floor. The owner Michael is so great to work with also! We had an issue with the cable and I texted him about it and it was fixed that day! We looked forward to going back! Thank you Michael for helping making our trip so memorable!!!

Beautiful place! Fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful spring break stay! My husband and I enjoyed the gorgeous water view on bedroom balcony... a great place to sip some coffee and journal before the little ones were up and ready to go to the beach. The easy access to sand was so convenient, especially with kids ages 3 & 6. They loved the playground. We cooked in most meals and had everything we needed. There was a slight technical issue with getting in the first day, but Michael was great correcting the issue and offered an unexpected compensation for our trouble along with a great breakfast restaurant recommendation. We’d go back!

Owner's Response: Cassidy - actually I wasn't great at correcting the issue. I took far too long because I'm not used to mid-week check ins and it was totally my fault I didn't have my cell phone with me to answer your texts. Normally, I am right on it! Anyway, I really appreciated your patience and I'm glad you guys had a great time. So I actually bought one of those Samsung watches so that now even when my phone is not around, I get instant messages to the watch so this surely won't happen again.

Everything you need for a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, 20 min from airport, beach front, restaurants/grocery/CVS within 2 miles. The unit has everything you need for your stay. I was impressed with the extras that were included - chair, umbrella, toys, beach towels, all new kitchen appliances, pots/pans, utensils, mixer, keurig and coffee brewer - Even comes with autofill pitcher of filtered still water in frig. Owner/manager very communicative and a pleasure to work with- we will be back.

Wonderful time with kids!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and 2 young children. We had a wonderful time! Having access to the beach and the lake was so nice. My boys had a blast playing on the beautiful beach (there were hardly any other people there--even at Spring Break!) and fishing at the lake--even though it was a cold week for Spring Break (highs in the 60s). The little community where the condo was located is so adorable. There are beautiful, brightly painted beach houses. I had such a good time just walking around.

The condo itself was nice, but a little outdated in some respects. But we quickly got over that because the place was so great in other aspects. We loved the well stocked kitchen and cooked most of our meals, which made the trip very affordable. Having a washer and dryer was so helpful, too. The beds were very comfortable, and there were lots of extra blankets. We also liked that there were lots of TV options for our kids, who enjoyed watching a few movies when they were tired. The owner was very nice and helpful. We will definitely be back! This was probably the least expensive vacations we have ever taken, yet one of my kids' favorites.

There are lots of attractions nearby. We went into Panama Beach City, which is very touristy. My kids loved doing put-put and riding go-carts. We also drove into Seaside, which was lovely. It has some great restaurants and wonderful shops. However, if you go during busy times, do not go in the afternoon! We made this mistake and got stuck in traffic and could not find a parking spot; we ended up just leaving. The next day we went early for breakfast and had a lovely time. I'm so glad that we chose not to stay in Seaside, though. Although it's really cute, the crowds were terrible. Overall, I thought we were in the perfect location for quick access to other places, but then we could go home to a more secluded area instead of being stuck in a tourist trap.

Owner's Response: Crystal - thanks for the great review. We pride ourselves on having one of the most updated condos in Pinnacle Port, though there are a couple areas we are working on such as the popcorn ceilings and the chunky banister. But because the entire building is reinforced concrete, including the ceilings, some renovations are more costly than in other types of construction. Anyway, glad to hear you preferred our place over Seaside! Since we are about half the cost of Seaside, that's quite a compliment and we look forward to having you back again. Maybe by then we'll have made more updates to the unit. Thanks again.

This was our 3rd year in the Panama City Beach area and finally ... WE HIT THE JACKPOT!!!

Pinnacle Port is an amazing place to stay. Once cleared at the front gate, you enter this beautiful area of beach homes and condos. The grounds are well manicured, the gulf and lake views are beautiful and there is plenty to do.

We felt at home the moment we opened the door! The condo was clean and welcoming! The Janocik's have decorated their condo tastefully with much attention to detail. The furnishing throughout are newer, comfortable and well cared for. The kitchen is stocked with everything you can imagine! Plenty of dishes, silverware, high-end pots & pans, cutlery, bakeware and numerous small appliances. I can't imagine any additional items one would need.

The condo is light, bright and very comfortable. We felt as if this was OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME! The 2 bedrooms are decorated quite nicely and the beds are extremely comfortable. The bathrooms have all been nicely updated as well. No worries about dragging extras from home, as the Janocik's have thought of everything! Nice outdoor furniture to enjoy the gulf and lake views. Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella and even a beach brush to remove the sand before you enter the building, just to name a few.

Prior to this year, we have stayed in units that were not as presented. Once our money was paid, we never had a call or follow-up regarding our stay. When we had problems, we had to resolve the issue ourselves. I say this because THIS WAS NOT THE CASE THIS YEAR!!! Michael is amazing to work with! We communicated several times throughout the year and Michael was always prompt with a reply. He and his wife made some upgrades to their condo during the year, he contacted us to make sure we were aware of the changes. I have to say, this is someone who cares about his renters! We received a message from him within hours of our arrival, asking if everything was ok and if we had any problems please don't hesitate to contact him. His concern ... ensuring we had a great vacation ... SO REFRESHING!

If you're looking to stay in a clean, beautifully appointed condo with all the amenities ... THIS IS IT! If you would like to know the owner is truly concerned about your stay ... THIS IS IT! We've already booked our stay for next year and can't wait! Thank you Michael and Susan for being such gracious owners and caring about your tenants! As I said ... WE HIT THE JACKPOT!
