About Christian

After living in Australia for 5 years, we moved to Austin, Texas -- only to discover we missed the shore. So for the past three summers we've been vacationing in Panama City Beach. Last year, we finally decided to purchase the perfect little beach getaway. We think you'll love it too!

Why Christian chose North West Florida

Fantastic clean complex in a great location. You are across the street from the beach and just down the road from Pier Park. Close to shopping, food and drink. This little part of paradise has it all!

Excellent location, with all necessary items for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The patio and main bedroom overlook the pool and have a sunrise view, compete with blackout shades for those mornings you want to sleep in! Lots of natural lighting, if you choose. The beach is easily accessed - literally 5 min walk to your perfect spot. You can see it from the time you walk out the front door. Sand Castles West was a quiet community. There is a grocery store, pharmacy, liquor store, several eateries, the beach, a bar/pub, and a gas station within walking distance. You can find pretty much anything else you might need within a 15 min drive. Decor was relaxing, comfortable, and beach themed. Cable TV in the living room and the bedroom for the sun burn recovery days ;) We loved it and the owners were very accommodating.

No cons, we very much enjoyed our stay and can't wait to visit again.

Cute & Cozy Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely gorgeous, it is cute and cozy, beautifully decorated all throughout! It looked exactly as pictured, even better actually as they had updated some of their linens. Very clean and well-maintained, everything worked properly. The bed was super comfy! Mostly everything is provided for your stay, even some beach toys/gear! Location was as described, directly across the road from the beach with beach access just a short walk, so very convenient. We had a great time just lounging at the pool, as well! Christian was very accommodating, he responds quickly and even let us check in earlier than scheduled. This little condo will always hold a special place in our heart as this was our Honeymoon! I know for a fact we will be back!

Restaurants we recommend: Pineapple Willy's - right on the beach, great service, delicious food. Try the Alligator Bites!!! They taste just like chicken! Very tender. Dick's Last Resort - If you can take a joke, go here! It's hilarious and just good fun. I recommend the Nacho's and Raspberry-Rita! Go to Tootsie's if you enjoy drinks and live music.

Thanks for a great time, hope to see you again soon!

great stay in PCB

  • 4 of 5

We had a good experience with this unit. It was exactly as described in the summary and in the pictures. The unit seemed a bit aged , the cabinets were worn and the paint could use a touch up in a few places (if these things really matter to you), but it was clean. There were only 2 of us, so we didn't need the pull out couch, but I could see this being ok for a group of 3-4. If you are planning to spend a lot of time in the condo it might get a bit cramped.

The location was good for us. Its on the outskirts of PCB, but the beach was less crowded and really lovely. The unit is across the street from a larger condo complex that has an outdoor pool and place to shower off. Most days we cut through the lobby to get to the beach and utilized their showers to clean off before coming back to our condo. We also used the bathrooms in their lobby. No one at the hotel bothered us, and these amenities made the location even more convenient. Even if you don't cut through the lobby, the public beach access is just 2 minutes walk and very easy to get to. Winn Dixie is within walking distance as well. The condo did provide beach chairs which we used, the only thing I wish they had that we had to buy was a beach umbrella but we knew going in that one wasn't provided.

There were a couple of small negatives. There were no paper towels, dish detergent, and only one Tide pod for the washer in the unit even though the description said they would be provided. It wasn't a huge deal to us so we didn't bother to contact the owner. Second, the wifi was a bit weak, we had trouble connecting especially at night time.

You do have to drive to get to the main part of PCB like Pier Park and the mini golf places, etc. Panama city beach is not really a pedestrian friendly town, there are few sidewalks and lots of busy traffic. The traffic can cause driving into the main part of town to take a while. However, the trade off of being on the outskirts is that the unit is quiet and we didn't have any issues with traffic noise or rowdy people walking by.

Overall, we had a great stay. The location was perfect for us in that our main priority was quick and easy access to the beach. It was quiet at night and we had no issues with rowdy loud neighbors or people in the pool (which is right outside the bedroom patio).

Nice condo short walk to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo. It had everything we could've needed for our week at the beach. The kitchen was well stocked with essentials for cooking meals (which we did most nights). The walk to the beach isn't too bad. There is a crosswalk to the beach access point. And this condo is just up one flight of steps closer to the road side, making it one of the closest to the beach. The balcony overlooks the pool, so you can see how crowded it is before you go. It was never crowded when we were there. We had the pool to ourselves a couple times. Definitely would recommend this place! We also recommend David's Sno-Ball's if you're in the area! Our favorite place in town for dessert! Just a 3 mile drive from the condo, they have New Orleans style food but also beignets and sno-balls (you can choose from a huge list of favors) stuffed with soft serve ice cream.
