About Chantale

My name is Chantale, and I was borned & raised in Quebec Canada. I am fluent in French & English. I have being married to a great man for the past 16 years, and the blessed mother of 3 boys. We live in South Ga....only few hours from paradise....Panama City Beach. I manage & rent 3 condos in Panama City Beach, and I work full time as a charge nurse for a dialysis clinic. I also hold a funeral director/embalmer license....I can take care of you dead or alive-LOL. I LOVE LOVE the beach!!! PCB is so much to do, and....amazing restaurants. I have been renting for many years now, and have develop great friendships with my VIP guests (returning guests). Due to the large numbers of returning guests, it is more like having friends staying over than renting to strangers :-). God has being good....:-)

Chantale purchased this condo in 2002

Why Chantale chose Panama City Beach

Top of The Gulf is not one of the big fancy high riser you see on the beach. If you are looking for the Ritz is not the place to rent. Top of The Gulf is rather a small complex (8 floors) that is older but clean, family oriented, friendly and affordable . It is a place where everyone talk with each other. The complex is directly on the beach, and walking distance from many restaurants & activities, can't beat the rates. Top of the Gulf is like a small community. I fell in love with the complex on my first visit, and...still am :-)

What makes this condo unique

Benefits from renting from me versus another owner or rental company?

I offer VIP Program

I offer FREE beach service (reserved chairs in season Mar 1-Oct 31)

I am now offering Wireless IN MY CONDO (only few owners do)

I pride myself in offering clean condo that look just like the pictures provided and have an inspector inspect after EVERY check out and before ANY check it to make sure that we are spotless and everything function properly

I obtain the required parking pass for my guests to ease their stay with me

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey sweet Lady,I cannot figure out how to respond to your survey, so i will tell you in my own words: The trip was amazing, you own one of the NICEST CLEANEST condos I have ever stayed at in PC BEACH period, and I have stayed at T.O.T.G. at least 25 times in my life. The cleanliness and the STOCKED kitchen were HUGE in my book. The view the TV, the beds, well you get the picture....haahaa......It was a truly amazing vacation and one that I desperately needed. I would reccomend to any of my family or friends to rent from you and stay there. I also appreciate you letting us stay the extra night, we also added a souviner glass filled with beautiful shells I found in the ocean onto the bathroom shelf, feel free to move it....LOL.....anyways, I hope you and your loved ones are having an amazing and blessed holiday me anytime u like and thanks again so much for the use of your wonderful home away from home, always, Jeff Nichols P.S. The journals are a really cool idea:) and we also tried to leave the unit as close to as clean as it was when we arrrived, I am very respectful in that way!

Hidden Treasures

  • 5 of 5

The Top of the Gulf location is better than fabulous! While it is an older property, it is well maintained and staffed. The pool area and common grounds were immaculate. The condo was darling and had everything you could ever need plus more! Chantale, the owner is delightful to deal with. We will definately be returning soon.

My much needed vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our 3 night 4 day vacation. The condo was welcoming and since I love lighthouses, the furniture made it more enjoyable. It was close to the elevator so we did not have a long walk and near the patio for outdoor enjoyment. We are looking forward to our next visit.
