About Darrell & Tina Berkley

Hello, My wife and I have been long time vacationers at Panama City Beach for the past 19 years. We fell in love with the sugar-white sandy beaches and the entire atmosphere that the Panhandle has to offer. After our first trip to Panama City Beach, we knew this would be our new home away from home, because at that time, it was a rarity for everyone to agree on one place. We watched Panama City Beach transform from a sleepy little beach town to one of the best vacation spots in Florida. We consider ourselves very lucky to be part of the “awakening” and we invite everyone to share in the experience! You too, may be calling it your home away from home.

Darrell & Tina Berkley purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Darrell & Tina Berkley chose Florida

Our main reason for buying a condo at Horizon South was the family atmosphere and all the activities in the complex. Our girls were 8 & 12 at the time, and to find something for everyone was almost impossible, however Horizon South made it possible. After a day at the beach we could come home eat and play tennis, miniature golf, shuffleboard and not to mention swimming in one of the four pools. In addition, a game of pool in the game room or relaxing in the hot tub was a great way to round out our day. Now, with all the development on the west beach, it has everything anyone would want within a short driving distance

What makes this townhome unique

One of the best benefits would be the amenities, and location of Horizon South. Others would be Pier Park, just 2 miles east on Front Beach road. Pier Park has over 1 million square feet of shopping, food and entertainment; Jimmy Buffetts Margaritaville, Raggae J's Island Grill, live country music at Tootsies Orchid Lounge, and much more. Frank Browns sports complex is within 5 minutes on Back Beach road. With all the tournaments through out the year, it's good to know how close it is to home and to be able to relax around the pool.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were extremely pleased with our choice of accommodations. The minute we walked into the townhouse we felt like we were in paradise. The whole property was roomy (big enough for the six of us). The interior was decorated beautifully, everything was very comfortable. We had our son and his family with us and it was so nice that they could have the privacy of the upstairs bedroom and bath and we were all still able to be together and enjoy each other's company. The kitchen was well stocked with all the amenities you'd expect. There was plenty of dinnerware and eating utensils as well. We had a private patio which we enjoyed in the evenings after returning from the beach. We usually bring home one laundry bag of clothes to be cleaned. This trip the clothing was kept clean from start to finish since there was a washer and dryer in-house. We had to contact our hosts, Tina and Darrell, a couple of times regarding some questions we needed answered and they were very quick to respond. All in all, a great stay was had by all. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a getaway that is serene and peaceful. We had the most wonderful celebration vacation and all I can say is thank you Tina and Darrell for making this week a memorable one.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in June. There were 4 adults and 2 kids. There was plenty of room. The owners were great to work with!! They contacted me back quickly anytime that I had questions. The kitchen was small, but was perfect for us. We mainly went out to eat for drinks net and just had breakfast and lunch at the unit. The couch was extremely comfortable. I wish that I could have brought it home with me. The beds were also comfortable. We would definitely stay again!!

Mixed review

  • 4 of 5

Spent 1 week during the beginning of off season, September 10-17. The owners made this stay as enjoyable as possible, staff, however, is hardly available. Clubhouse opens late and closes early; pools however were an added plus. Security gates were removed after 2nd day for repairs so there really was no need for security code to enter property; was told that property bracelets were to be worn daily but nobody ever checked the whole week. Exercise room opened daily at 10 and closed at 3; there was never anyone at clubhouse service desk; WiFi as advertised in townhouse was not available the whole week. The next day called owner to ask about WiFi but owner never called back. Internet accessibility was only available at the clubhouse. Check in time was 3PM but due to miscommunication with cleaning staff, townhouse wasn't cleaned until 9 PM. Upon arrival townhouse was dirty, garbage full, dirty dishes and messy refrigerator was evident; looked as though someone had just left. Owner was called and notified and he called back and said cleaning staff would arrive shortly. Owner stated it would be clean in 1 1/2 hours but cleaning lady stated it would be at least 3 hours. It would have been nice to rest after driving from Atlanta for 6 hours but we had to wait until property was ready. We were not planning on spending the majority of time at the townhouse so the accommodations were as well as could be expected for a rental that has been used for over 10 years. Beds were comfortable, shower pressure was great and the owners had many extras like tennis rackets and other swimming pool accessories. The giant sized washer & dryer was much appreciated and the outdoor grill and patio with decorative lights and umbrella are outstanding; great for relaxing on the patio while grilling and enjoying a glass of chilled wine after a trip to Shell Island, a dolphin boat ride and shopping trip to the designers outlet mall in Destin. Great deals on Adidas, Nike and other retailers. There is plenty to do in the area and if you want a great breakfast, try Jeannie"s One Stop Diner, right on Front Bech Road, great atmosphere and great food. Dinner on the Gulf at Runaway Island Restaurant, also on Front Beach Road has a great view of the sunset over the gulf. There are also plenty of novelty stores that have a variety of shells, starfish and trinkets all for $1. Great time in PCB.....

Great holiday - thank you!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks end of May/beginning of June and had a great time. The accommodation was perfect for a family of 4. The children aged 12 and 9 loved the pools and mini golf. We loved the beaches and spent most days there. The townhouse was very clean and had everything we needed for the holiday. Thank you for sharing your home and we hope to return again next year.

Great All Around!!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband, mother and 3 kids (ages 6, 5, and 18 months) all stayed here in June 2013. The location of the complex was great. Very easy walk to the beach (with beach access) and quick drive to pretty much anywhere on the strip. It's not right in the middle of everything, which worked out well for us. The unit itself was also pretty centrally located within the property, with a super quick walk to any of the 4 pools or miniature golf. One complaint would be the material used on the surface of some of the pool bottoms felt like 20 grit sandpaper. Not kid-feet friendly at all. Otherwise the pools were great...very clean.

The unit was nice and very clean, the kitchen is very very small, but that wasn't a problem for us. The upstairs beds were both big and the upstairs bedroom was giant. Both bedrooms had TV's and DVD players, as did the living room. There was a nice washer and dryer in the downstairs bedroom that came in VERY handy. The patio is completely fenced and private, has a table w/ umbrella and chairs. There is also a little clothes line out there to hang up wet bathing suits.

The owners were very gracious and helpful, and once we got there, we didn't need anything. I'd stay here again for sure.
