Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Condo (2 Floors), 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A little slice of Heaven is waiting for you! We offer you a bargain without sacrificing beauty. The location is overwhelmingly beautiful. It is right on the beach inside the Carillon/Pinnacle Port gated community composed of expensive Victorian style beach homes, in the tower on the 1st and 2nd floors at Pinnacle Port, one of the most beautiful gulf front condominium complexes in the Panhandle.

This is a great place to spend a vacation, honeymoon, anniversary, or have family fun. We offer you this beautiful spot beside the beach at a price that will not destroy your budget but leave room in it for you to pay your gas bill and have money to eat out, shop and enjoy all the activities available at Panama City Beach.

For $1498.60 per week (this includes 12% tax) during peak summer season plus clean up fee ($85 for 4 people, $95 for 5-6 people) you can enjoy what others would pay much more for. Shorter or longer stays are available as well. Off season rates and booking information are listed later.

We offer adaptable facilities that promote togetherness. Our possible three bedroom unit at a one bedroom price is a one time opportunity that we are offering to those who love the beach and each other.

In order to convert this one bedroom unit into a three bedroom unit, we provide a queen size Murphy bed in the living room that lets down into a comfortable bed. The separate dining room will accommodate one queen size comfortable air mattress or two twin size air mattresses when the table and chairs are moved aside if you have more than four people in your party (Renter must provide their own bedding for the air mattresses).

Our condo has been newly remodeled with new carpet and completely professionaly repainted throughout. We have original artwork throughout the condo by artist, Grace Russell including a beach mural in the half-bathroom. Please view our photos as we will be updating them throughout the winter months as we continue to make changes. We have all new linens, towels, bedding, and pillows. We have also updated the lighting throughout the condo.

To get to our condo, you will need to access the elevator or stairs on the ground floor in the main tower at Pinnacle Port and go to the 1st floor. Our condo is A-118. The bedroom which looks out onto the beach is located on the 1st floor along with the master bathroom. On the 2nd floor, the dining room also looks out onto the beach and the shaded balcony off the living room has a spectacular view of Carillon Beach and Panama City Beach from Pinnacle Port all the way to Thomas Drive. The balcony has a table and chairs if you enjoy outside dining.

Publix and Winn-Dixie grocery stores and CVS Pharmacy, Wachovia Bank, several restaurants (Bayou Bill's Crab Shack, Bubba's Pizza, Shade's Bar and Grill, Cuvee 30A, Dunkin' Donuts, etc...) and shops as well as the shops and restaurants at Carillon are within walking distance. A number of excellent golf courses are available nearby.

Pier Park, the newest shopping village at the beach offers numerous department stores, small shops, restaurants, and a 16 screen movie theater. Destin with the largest outlet mall in the country is only a 30 minute drive to the west.

Rosemary Beach, Inlet Beach, Seaside, Watercolor, Seagrove Beach, and other interesting seaside villages are nearby with shops and restaurants on 30A just three miles to the west.

There are lots of things to do at Panama City Beach for the whole family. Gulf World offers a chance to get up close with sea life.

Parasailing, deep sea fishing and many excellent restaurants and shops are nearby, but the relaxing beauty of the white sand and emerald green water within the Carrillon Beach/Pinnacle Port gated community remain the greatest attraction.

About Leigh Ellen Atkins

My name is Leigh Ellen Atkins. I am the granddaughter and property manager for my grandparents, Hank and Grace. I have been managing their condo going on 5 years and have enjoying going to Pinnacle Port!

Hank is a retired United Methodist Minister. Grace is a writer and artist. They have travelled abroad many times and preached in many countries. They have 5 children, 17 grandchlldren and 19 great-grandchildren whom love Pinnacle Port and have spent many a happy vacation at our condo. All of them love the beach. The great-grandchildren say, "That's really my beach" to which the others reply, "No that's really my beach, I just let you come, too". If you want to have a fantastic family vacation, this is where to have it!

Leigh Ellen Atkins purchased this condo in 1977

Why Leigh Ellen Atkins chose Laguna Beach

We love the beautiful white sand and turqouise water of the Gulf. We also enjoy seeing the many different types of marine life such as dolphins, manta rays, sea turtles, pelicans, sea gulls, crabs, etc.... Panama City Beach is within easy driving distance of our home. My grandparents have a host of friends here and have enjoyed spending the winters here. Gulfview United Methodist Church is nearby and they have enjoyed their fellowship a lot.

What makes this condo unique

We love the location of our condo! It is close to Panama City Beach, Inlet Beach, Seaside, and Destin. Also, a lot of condominiums have long boardwalks to the beach, but Pinnacle Port does not. It is one of the few condos where you can walk directly from the building onto the sand.

Amazingly Beautiful Location On Beach...Condo Has Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have vacationed at this particular condo several times and we always enjoy ourselves. The unit is perfect and equipped with everything we need. The condo is beautifully decorated and is always very clean. The view of the ocean from the dining room & master bedroom are amazingly beautiful. From the condo, we look for dolphins as we drink our morning coffee and watch the sunsets in the evening.

Truly, only steps to the beach! The indoor/outdoor pool was a good break from the sun. This location is perfect for a peaceful vacation. The condo is on the beach inside the Carillon/Pinnacle Port gated community. The perfect place for a relaxing get away!

The owner is extremely helpful and nice and is very easy to communicate with. My wife and I both highly recommend Hank and Grace's Hideaway and we are already planning to visit again.

Great getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed Hank and Grace's Hideaway so much! It is literally just steps away to the sandy beach. It is at the quieter end of the beach so it is great for families. We spent every day on the beach playing in the sand and water. We werent there to do the tourist stuff, but this place is centrally located to all of that. The condo is cozy and very homey and has all the amenities you would need. I loved the original artwork and the personal touches. I felt at home there. I wish I had more time to read the books by Hank and Grace, but I can look for those online. My daughter loved reading what other guests had signed in the guestbooks. We would definitely stay here again!!!!
