About Brad Latham

We were born and raised outside of Atlanta, Ga.We have a son that loves the beach also. After vacationing in PCB we decided to live our dream of Purchasing a condo. So in November 2011 We purchased our first condo at The Summit Resort 1119 We were Luck enough to meet a fantastic fellow and purchased our unit at the Top Of The Gulf In June 2015 . We really take pride in making sure our guests have a fantastic time and learn about the great restaurants and things to do.

Brad Latham purchased this studio in 2015

Why Brad Latham chose Panama City Beach

This is truly an ideal location and one of the key reasons for spending some fantastic time here. It's a TRUE Gulf Front condo and faces the beach with a great view. It's also rare in that it is very, very central yet on a distinctly exclusive area of the beach in that the main road curves away from the beach and comes back just a short distance away thereby diverting the 'cruising' traffic away from the beach and allowing you to get where you need to go and only get in traffic when you want to.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Brad's condo. He was very helpful to us and the room was just enough room for the both of us and well taken care of. We would definitely stay again.

Fabulous Experience

  • 5 of 5

While the room was small, it felt much larger with the windows and expansive view of the beach!!! My two children (ages 26, 23) spent three weeks in the condo before i joined them for a final week. Brad was eager to help with any question and answered quickly. The building, parking lot, pool area were all clean and well attended. The staff are friendly and quick to ask if all our needs were being met. I would return in a heartbeat!!

The Best View

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 3. The Murphy bed was very comfortable and the futon was too. I really enjoyed being able to open the window and hear the ocean. You couldn't get a better view! As far as improvements.... we were going to use the oven but it wasn't working? Maybe it had flipped the breaker, not sure but just used the microwave instead. If you are changing the tv maybe put it on a swivel base. Also the fridge door was a bit warped. But once you figured it out it wasn't a problem. Some may want better wifi. I actually enjoyed the break from it, but it would be a good thing to upgrade. We brought our own chairs and umbrella, but if thet were there it would be a lot less to pack. The pool was wonderful too. Very clean and well maintained. There were a couple of times that the elevators were down. Luckily I was headed down, my husband unfortunately had to go up once, but after that it was fine. The staff that work at the condo were all very pleasant and the other families that we met were just as nice. I would definitely come here again and will tell my family and friends about this great place!

Excellent beachfront condo

  • 5 of 5

Kirby met us at the condo and offered suggestions on dining in town. The ocean was great to listen to with the window open. Futons are a little worn but that is the only negative. The complex is awesome and the staff is very friendly. The balconies provide a great sitting area with awesome sunrises and breezes. Kirby called to check on us. Greatly appreciated Would certainly stay again.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I were looking for a great place to stay on a college/work budget and this was the place! Mr. Kirby gave us a great deal for a whole week. Even even met us at the room to give keys and go over everything. He always mention some great places to eat and go while we were down there. He called during the week to check up and make sure we didnt need anything and that everything was going great! The view is wonderful and the beach wasnt that crowded despite the time we went. I also enjoyed that the condo had a restaurant near the pool/beach. Overall I was pleased with the stay! We definitley will be coming back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much! I certainly try to make sure that my guests have a perfect and very memorable time down here. I love helping by giving some great "local tips" on places to eat and things to do to make sure folks have a fantastic time and avoid the "tourist traps". I know that is extremely important to me when we take our family of 5 on vacation. Thanks for being the perfect guests and giving me feedback both during you stay and even afterwards. You are certainly welcome back anytime!

Awesome Vacation Spot with A Great Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an affordable condo during the holiday week, and Kirby was awesome! He'd just had a cancellation and was willing to offer us a great rate in spite of it being 4th of July! He met us at the condo, even though we were nearly 4 hours late (traffic), and gave us a rundown on everything. He asked us to call with any problems and he would address them right away. He advised us that he welcomes feedback and even gave us money for dinner due to a previous review that said the water heater didn't work properly. He'd had it checked by the plumber who said there weren't any problems, but he wanted to be sure we were happy with it.

The condo was a bit smaller than what we'd reserved last year, but for the price, it was worth it. The Murphy bed was quite comfortable, and with a memory foam mattress at home, I tend to be quite picky! We had no problems getting comfortable on the two futons while lounging around during the day. One of the futons had a couple of broken springs/bars which caused you to sink down if you sat in that spot. Since there were just the two of us there, we just didn't sit in that spot while we were there. We did mention it to Kirby via email the day we left, and he already had someone lined up that day to replace it. We didn't sleep on the futons, but a friend did join us for a couple of nights and she just put both mattresses on one futon and said it slept fine. The kitchen is small like what you would find in a hotel room, but the stove and oven worked fine. A standard sized pizza fit just fine, though keep an eye on it since it's so small, it may cook faster than expected. There is a small hotel style refrigerator along with a regular small sized one (see photo). Our best advise is to check-in before going to Walmart. That way you have a good idea of what you have space for in the fridge! (Despite reviews, the nearest Walmart was stocked just fine.)

The shower liner was missing, but we replaced it as a thank you for dinner! The hot water worked just fine for the two of us taking back to back showers. The ice trays were broken and we couldn't find new ones at Walmart, but Kirby has already replaced them. There is Wi-Fi available in the Lounge downstairs, but not in the room itself, so plan accordingly.

We were overall please with our stay and would stay here again. Kirby was great, and if you have a problem, tell him right away so he can fix it rather than waiting and posting a bad review.
