About Diana

Brian and Diana Lunsford enjoying the sunset as a family on our reserved beach chairs

Diana purchased this condo in 2007

Why Diana chose Panama City Beach Area

The beach is never over-crowded, even during Spring Break and summer, because this is not an enormous complex. The condo floorplan is spacious and the balconies at Ocean Villa are the largest along the PCB coast. The resort is convenient to restaurants and activities but not right in the middle of a high tourist area.

What makes this condo unique

Balcony, balcony, balcony. :) We love starting and ending each day w/ a gorgeous view of the sand and surf. Located on the 8th floor, we are high enough above the pool deck to avoid the noise and yet not too high above the beach so the view is perfect!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for sharing your condo with us this past weekend. We really enjoyed it. Everything was just beautiful, from the kitchen, to the livingroom, to the beautiful bedrooms ,and baths, and,words cannot describe the balony, the view was just perfect. To be able to watch the sunsets was a treat in itself. Your beds are more comfortable than our at home. It all made for a very good stay. We hope to be able to go back again sometime. Thanks again.

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great trip. We really enjoyed staying at your condo and want to visit again soon as possible. The condo was extremely nice and very clean. The beds were so comfortable and I couldn't have gotten a better nights sleep at home. I enjoyed the large balcony and view was perfect. Great location with many good restaurants close by. Also, the provided beach umbrella and chairs was such a plus. Thanks again.Judy

Once Again - Another Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for the last several years when traveling to PCB and once again, our vacation was amazing. The Condo has everything you could need or want. Hanging out on the balcony with the view, the sounds and smells of the beach and water is so incredibly relaxing. Pier Park is just a short drive away. Walmart is just down the street. Couldn't ask for a better location. Don't bother staying any place else when you come to PCB. Thanks Diana!

Sun on the Balcony

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost 7 weeks enjoying all the the Beach had to offer while staying in Diana and Brian's lovely 2 bedroom unit. It felt like home with all the amenities the unit had. Diana was excellent to work with. The view from our balcony never got old.

Thank you so much!

great unit at OceanVilla

  • 3 of 5

This unit is very nice and is well equipped. Roomy, clean and very comfortable. Nice property and unit itself. We really enjoyed our time and the use of this unit. There was a little hiccup with access to the unit upon arrival which once we got hold of the owner, it got cleared up. Would have been nice and would have preferred to have received all the necessary information prior to leaving my home rather than down loading an app or accessing email after our arrival for access, property usage details and owner contact information. It's all about communication. Also encountered another issue this trip that I would have thought communication from the property managers would have communicated to the units owners, maybe they did, so that unit might have been taking off the market for rental. Or at least a footnote from the owner to inform potential renters and guest of what they would encounter. Building maintenance, pressure washing and painting began during our stay, which shut down usage and access to the property amenities, pool, hot tub, direct access to the beach, etc., all closed off by the property manager. Very inconvenient. Feeling is that I didn't get all that I paid for. Honestly, I would have probably rented at a different property had this been revealed up front. Kind of an integrity issue. But, that's a different and separate issue than the actual unit and will be only temporary setback. I would recommend this property and will consider for future use if we return to the area. To the owner, batteries need to be replaced in some of the remotes and instructions left in the unit on connecting with the DVD player would be beneficial to future renters.

Owner's Response: Wesley, I apologize for the poor communication prior to your arrival. That's completely out of character for me. You are not our first last minute booking but this is the only time I have failed to send all necessary information to a guest prior to arrival. Exterior painting is a weather sensitive process so management cannot give advance information with exact details on where the painters will be on any given day or week. For this reason, I have communicated with all fall guests and provided the option to cancel or reschedule their trips. However, management had communicated to the owners that all work would be stopped during bike week. Based on that information I did not address the project prior to accepting your reservation request because owners were assured there would be no restricted areas or painting activity during your stay. It is our desire that every guest enjoy their time at our condo and feel rejuvenated and relaxed when they return home. In 10 years of ownership this is our first time to not meet that goal. For that I am deeply sorry. Diana
