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.

August 2017 Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay met and exceeded our expectations!The communication before, during and after our stay was phenomenal. The condo was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. The ocean view is amazing!! The location is great as you can go anywhere in a matter of minutes. The pool and property are also maintained to high standards. If you are looking for a nice relaxing place to stay that is also family friendly this is it.

Lovely views and rental . Bad checkout experience

  • 3 of 5

The unit itself is nice and the views were AMAZING. During our stay we only had minor issues with

dirty dishes in the dishwasher and small stain on pillowcase nothing that we couldn't fix. Plenty of amenties are provided by the condo bldg and owner were great you'll have everything you need. However please be sure to THOROUGHLY do a walk thru not just a basic walk thru as I did. Flip over comforters, run your fingers across it, take pictures, inform owners of anything EVEN minor stuff you can address or they will attempt to keep your deposit. I took pictures upon arrival and departure as well as Lysol bathrooms sweep & mop. Emailed owner upon leaving earlier and received a message 3 hrs later stating I tore a comforter that I didn't even use as it was too hot. So please take SUPER detailed pictures look with a microscope if you need to as they are attempting to blame me for someone else's negligence!! My stay I enjoyed my departure and lack of responsibility on the staff is what I disliked.

Owner's Response: I was surprised to be notified at check-out of one cleaning issue. After we notified client about a torn comforter in the master bedroom, we were informed about additional cleaning issues. Unfortunately, we have zero opportunity to resolve issues and make things right if we don't know about them. Had we been informed about cleaning issues when the client arrived, the property manager would have been on-site immediately to address any issues. Our check-in/check-out process is the same as any other rental. We expect normal wear and tear but we will hold a security deposit when we discover a major item has been broken, missing or is un-repairable in order to ensure our next client has the same experience you received upon arrival.
