About Linda & Hud Shonkwiler

We have been land locked our entire adult lives and have been looking for the perfect Gulf get away and we finally found it! Panama City Beach is a beautiful area and we automatically fell in love with it. Now that we have a place of our own here, we have the opportunity to get out of the mid-west winters and share our wonderful condo with others during high season. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do.

Condo #1502: Just what the Dr. Ordered!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time relaxing and enjoying family time. This condo was very clean, equipped with all the essentials, roomy enough for the 5 of us (all adults) and the view was SPECTACULAR! The owners were very helpful with loads of local and property information.

The location was very convenient to area attractions and restaurants, many of which were within walking distance.

The pool area offered grills and a few cabanas, which were great for hanging out while cooking.

The beach was very clean and offered activities to enjoy. We road the Banana Boat and had a blast!!!

The food truck Finns is across the street and is a must! We went twice...

Once for a DELICIOUS breakfast and once for a wonderful lunch!

Would definitely stay again in a heart beat:)

Great location and space

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Linda was fantastic to work with which made things go super well. The location was great with easy access to the beach and amazing food places close by (Gypsea Crepes, Jesse's, and Liza's kitchen were some our favs!). The view off the balcony was fantastic. We never had a wait for the elevator but we weren't at peak time. Linda has a closet of beach things (toys, umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards) which was great. It saved us money from having to go buy anything. The pool was nice and never really crowded. The beds in the condo were nice and comfy. The condo itself is not anything to write home about. It wasn't bad - just not fancy which I expected with the low price. I will say that if you are over 6' tall, you might want to think about something. The ceilings in the bathrooms are super low which might cause a problem. Overall, I would definitely go back.

Great Condo with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit E1502. It overlooks the beach and ocean and the view is fantastic. The complex has several pools, a café, tennis courts, and plenty of lounge chairs. We found the condo to be very clean with nice furnishings, ample pillows, and comfortable bedding. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking and the clothes washer and dryer worked great. This condo included a closet full of beach toys, chairs and umbrellas that had everything we could need throughout the week. It’s a little hard to get a cart and slow to get an elevator around check in/out times on Saturdays, but other than that we didn’t feel like it took too long to get to and from the 15th floor, even though the building only has two elevators. There are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores with a few miles of the condo. We were pleased with how attentive, organized, and thoughtful the property owners were. They even sent us some restaurant recommendations ahead of our visit, which we found helpful.

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The entire place was beautiful! The view of the ocean was perfect! Also the sun didn'tbeam in making the condo too hot in the evenings! Everything was perfect they offered plenty of beach chairs and sand toys! The location of the dunes of panama are farther down from the pier however there are still plenty of shops to go into near by and less traffic getting out of our condo! We had an amazing time!!

We don't want to tell anyone about this secret!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo and the owners were both amazing! Well maintained and furnished comfortably, extra pillows and blankets were available, as well as many thoughtful extras were available to guests such as beach chairs, noodles, umbrellas, toys. Great views from the balcony and gulf front bedroom of the beach and the crystal clear waters. Will definitely return for another stay as long as everyone else doesn't book it first!
