C2-104 is the ground floor corner unit in Building C2. Amazingly convenient to the beach just in front of you, the outdoor shower, your parked car, and the small resort pool. You are so close to the ocean you can sit on the patio and have a conversation with your family playing on the beach! (great for grandparents) For additional activities - too many to list! - *** The best of three worlds -
1. A vast, private, security guarded all-inclusive resort that is peaceful and serene, located on the Bay / Walton county line -
2. halfway between the bustle and excitement of Panama City Beach (ten minutes east) and -
3. the luxury and refinement of The Beaches of South Walton (ten minutes west). ---
** This 'peninsula paradise' is surrounded by the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Lake Powell, and Philips Inlet.
*** With the umbrella dotted beach just off your porch and a mile of deserted beach next door, you will have the best sand castle building and beach play available.
*** Watersports are unmatched with - swimming and playing in the waves in front of your porch, boogie boarding, skim boarding, surfing, playing in the inlet, - kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, pontoon boating, water skiing, tubing, - freshwater fishing in the lake, fishing from the boat dock, surf fishing, crabbing in the surf, inlet, lake, and from the dock.
*** Bicycling is fabulous around the Pinnacle Port / Carillon property, as well as the bike path down SOWAL's 30-A.
*** Walking miles down the undeveloped beach, hiking through Camp Helen State Park, and walking 'the property' viewing the amenities and coastal architecture provide plenty of exercise for walkers and joggers alike.
*** If sports play is your goal - we have tennis, basketball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, beach volleyball, and two pools.
*** All of that is just 'on property' inside the private gate.
*** Outside the gate awaits a world of enterntainment like no other.
*** Theme parks, water parks, restaurants, nightlife, arts, and music are all within minutes drive.
*** But with two grocery stores and a drugstore just outside the gate, you might just want to pick up some essentials and head back to 'our quiet corner of the world',
- boil some shrimp in the kitchen as you look out at the ocean,
- sit on the porch and have a glass of wine as the kids play on the beach just a few feet away,
- or gather at the porch rail for a family photo in the sunset.

Year Purchased: 1975
About the owner: Four generations of our family love Sand Castle Days. This is a photo of me and one of my nine grand and great-grandchildren. We purchased this wonderful condo before it was even built because we knew the area and were certain this would be our favorite place forever. For decades, we made lifelong family memories here, and we are now renting to others - happy to share this wonderful place with people who will appreciate its uniqueness and treasure the special times that it provides those who stay here.
Why the Owner Chose Pinnacle Port: We have always been an active family, and loving the beach as we do, Pinnacle Port has provided everything we could ask for. We completely renovated in 2009 - brand new concrete, doors, windows, framing, walls, tile, carpet, plumbing pipes & fixtures, electrical wiring & fixtures, HVAC, cabinetry, countertops, furnishings. We could stay here forever!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We don't know of another place where you have at your fingertips what we have here. It is quiet and uncrowded with the nature of the state park, active and fun with the amenities of the resort, yet still less than 5 minutes from the other attractions of the Emerald Coast. Secluded but convenient - You just have to see it to understand. - Research our home, Pinnacle Port, Carillon Beach, Philips Inlet, Lake Powell, Camp Helen State Park, Highway 30-A along the beaches of South Walton, and the West end of Panama City Beach. I don't know of another place in the world like this. See for yourself!
