About Jennifer Holbrook Carte

We are a family of three from Louisville, Kentucky. After many years of travelling to Panama City Beach and renting different condos on VRBO we decided to purchase this condo. Our family loves the ocean and white sandy beach and we would love to share that experience with you.

Jennifer Holbrook Carte purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jennifer Holbrook Carte chose Long Beach

Great location, wonderful beach area, fantastic amenities. Ocean Villa is a medium size complex with approx. 125 condos and was named to Expedia's Select List for 2013 as one of it's top rated resorts. Emerald Beach is listed as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

What makes this condo unique

Master on the Gulf is breath-taking! This is one of the largest balconies overlooking the gulf and an 'End' unit (which is larger); so, you can see for miles and miles. Another nice amenity of Ocean Villa are the on-site gas grills. You don't have to buy charcoal and lighter fluid to grill out next to the ocean. Not many complexes provide a hot tub, steam room, sauna and heated pool. This makes the complex very usable all year round! Parking is located right under the condos or in a garage across the street with a covered walkway so you are not walking a mile to get to your condo like some complexes. One complaint you'll read from vacationers at other complexes is the slow elevators. Our condo is in a medium size building so you aren't waiting forever for an elevator. Located on the 16th floor is high enough to appreciate the awesome view and still enjoy the quietness of the ocean waves and not hear all the beach noises below. Great location inside and out. Since we only own this one condo, you are not exposed to a cookie cutter arrangement driven by the management companies. We sincerely want you to have a great time and are open to making things better for you. You are so close to Wal-Mart and other businesses. Location, LOCATION, Location! Well maintained and clean complex and condo! Beautiful tropical grounds. Our goal is to please you and your family so your vacation is special and you will desire to return year after year with us. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do. Relax & Unwind!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to compliment your condo. It was so tastefully decorated and comfortable. Also wanted to compliment your property manager. The first night we were there the AC didn't work and we called Jennifer and said we were sure it could wait till the next day but she and her husband came over that evening and got it taken care of. She was also very helpful when we asked about adding an additional night to our stay.

Note from owner: The air conditioner is new and was replaced in March 2016. The condensate lines were not flushed as part of the replacement. The property manager cleared the line and the air conditioner was functioning property that night.

Awesome condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for a Girls Trip and it was perfect!! We had plenty of room. The condo is just as described. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Diane was super nice and answered any and all of my questions in an appropriate time frame (typically responded within minutes). The view from the balcony is AUH MAZ ING! We will definitely consider this condo for future vacations. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Didn't want to leave!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful beach home with us! Diane you are a gracious hostess and the condo had everything we needed for a fun and relaxing week at the beach. You thought of everything!!! We loved seeing the dolphins while having breakfast and lunch on the balcony. The sunsets were breathtaking! Having the beach service was an added bonus! We wish we had this view as our backyard everyday!!! We will definitely be back!!!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a week in June. We loved it! It was very clean upon our arrival. The kitchen was very well stocked with dishes and cookware (although I wish there was a baking sheet and a pair of scissors). I loved the start up coffee set-up with creamer and sugar. The provided coffee filters were also a great extra that other condos usually do not have. Hand soaps in the bathrooms and kitchen were also a plus that we have not found in other condos. We LOVED that we had a set of beach chairs/umbrellas ready for our use during our stay without having to worry about renting them. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Panama City Beach!
