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 $85 clean up fee 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 also have a beach mural in one of our bathrooms. We have original artwork throughout the condo by artist, Grace Russell. 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, 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 new 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 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 Sunnyside

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.

The Perfect Vacation Rental for a Family

  • 5 of 5

My family of four has vacationed at Hank and Grace's Hideaway many times and we always fully enjoy each vacation there. Everything is always very clean. We love the views from the condo! From the condo, we look for dolphins as we drink our morning coffee and watch the sunsets in the evening. Also we love the new carpet throughout and the new furniture in the den!! My children love the queen size Murphy bed. Also, Hank and Grace's washer & dryer combo comes in handy to wash any sand out of swimsuits and to clean your beach towels and such during our visits. Our most recent trip was just before Christmas and we were able to enjoy some quality family time at the beach and finish our Christmas shopping. We are already planning to come back to Hank and Grace's Hideaway during our next school break! Thank you for allowing us to rent your condo!!

Mixed review, disappointed

  • 2 of 5

I hate to leave a bad review but I feel like future guests should know. There are pros to this property. Pinnacle Port as a complex was nice. Older building, but well maintained and right on the beach. The location away from Panama City Beach was good as well, and we really liked that it was a gated community. Very quiet overall. The owner was very prompt on answering questions and handling our payment. And the view on both sides, from the windows and the balcony, was great! But there are cons to this rental that I think others should know before renting this property. It is advertised as newly decorated and remodeled but it was not...Old furnishings, old carpet, strange smell in the unit. The a/c did not work well in the downstairs bedroom...we would turn it down low at night, our kids were freezing upstairs but we were still sweating downstairs! We noticed the first night that the sheets on the Murphy bed upstairs smelled unclean, and the blankets we got from the downstairs closet were visibly soiled...our kids just had to deal with it until we could get some detergent to wash them. We washed all the sheets in the unit and the two blankets so our kids could have clean bedding. The instructions for checkout were to place all linens from the beds and all towels in the foyer downstairs. We threw all the bedding including blankets down in the foyer and then headed home. I got a message the following day that she was going to keep part of our damage deposit because the cleaning lady had to take the blankets to a laundromat to wash. I explained all that we had washed while on vacation and that we had thought that blankets were part of the bedding to be washed, and then she told me the blankets are washed "seasonally as needed" and informed me that they work hard every time they go down to update and remodel the condo...It is advertised as already remodeled and updated! She would not come off the fee charged and apologized but said "we will make sure the linens are updated next time". The problem was not that they were old....they were DIRTY...and there were no clear instructions to not put blankets in the foyer to be washed. Needless to say, we would never rent this unit again. It is sad because the view is fantastic and it is a nice location in Pinnacle Port. Check this complex for other comparable units because it really is a nice location and pretty beach!

Quaint and peaceful place on the beach! We had so many conveniences around us that we rarely had to leave. The view was remarkable and everyone was so friendly! Great price. Looking forward to coming back soon.

A little slice of Paradise...

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted drop a note to say how much we have enjoyed our stay at Hank and Grace's condo and say a few words about our absolutely awesome vacation in PCB and wanted to say "Thanks" again for allowing our family the opportunity to spend this time in your unit.

Pinnacle Port is fantastic and I really love the fact that is far away from all of the hustle and bustle of the busy wild life from the Miracle Strip district. My family shares my sentiment on this.(We did visit Pier Park and had dinner there a couple of times.)

The weather could not have been more perfect. The Gulf was so clear and calm you could see to the bottom. It was almost like a lake. Not to mention the water was just beautiful blue-green and seaweed was very minimal.

We loved hanging out and swimming in the pool and laying out in the lounge chairs getting sunburned. That's all part of the experience in PCB.

I hope that we can go back again maybe next Summer and enjoy your condo on our next vacation trip to PCB.

Thank you again from the Watts family!

Wonderful place to stay with family!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently stayed at this wonderful little condo on the beach and all of us had a great time. It is right on the beach with easy access to everything. The kids loved not having to walk to far to the beach or to the pools. Me, my husband, and kids absolutely love it!! They want to always stay at "This" beach house. Our daughter also loved the Murphy Bed. It was very relaxing for all of us because there was no loud crowds and pinnacle port is very family oriented unlike staying on the public beaches! This is the perfect retreat for any "FAMILY". We will definitely come back and stay again next year for sure! Well worth the money.
