About Bill Tumlin

My husband and I love to be near the beautiful waters of the Gulf and Choctawhatchee Bay.

Bill Tumlin purchased this condo in 2006

Why Bill Tumlin chose Fort Walton Beach

We love the privacy that PH01 gives. We have no noise from the pool area. The views sold us this condo and keep us enjoying it on every stay. We don't want to leave but are happy to share the same experience we have with so many of our guests!

Communications and support is first rate

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak to the condo or the grounds as we had to cancel our trip at the last minute due to a medical complication that came up. I can speak to the communications and general kindness shown by Shelley and Bill though. All through the cancellation process and dealing with the optional travel insurance that I fortunately had purchased (3rd party separate from VRBO/The Tumlin's), Shelley and Bill have been an absolute pleasure to work with. They respond day and night (last message to Shelley was Sunday late evening 10/23/2016 was responded to w/in minutes). They are always willing to help answer questions or address VRBO system glitches. My wife and I have really appreciated the support from these two folks, both of which we have never met in person, and when we once again plan our family's first Florida Panhandle vacation, we will look the Tumlin's up and book one of their places. Thank you Shelley and Bill for the great support!

Beautiful Bay/Beach views

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, our two daughters and husbands, and three toddlers all enjoyed this beautiful three bedroom, three bathroom condo. The pictures do not do this place justice! Lovely furnishings, with room for everyone. The balconies have a breathtaking view of the bay and beach! The lazy river was the selling point and did not disappoint! The splash pad was a hit with the kids! Would highly recommend this place!

Huge beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

The entire family loved the condo. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The only thing I wish we had was a big gas grill and maybe more furniture on the rooftop. Otherwise perfect! Best of all Bill was very accommodating to any questions that we may of had.

Will NOT dissapoint!

  • 5 of 5

Had an AWSOME time!! We have always wanted to go to the beach during the week of July 4th. Let me till you...this condo does not disappoint! The most breathtaking views!! From the PH roof we saw AMAZING firework shows nightly and panoramic views of the turquoise beach and the bay, which you can get in! We loved the lazy river at night with all the lights and all the pools. The beach was pretty crowded but it didn't stop us. You don't really need to drive anywhere for anything. The amenities at this place is well worth it...There is Fudpuckers next door, and 2 dining cafés at the Ramada that you can enjoy also, there is a Tom Thumb for those late nights. We did enjoy Old Bay Steamer which is also in walking distance. The condo was very well stocked (washing powder, tin foil, tp, baggies, beach chairs, etc., etc., etc.) This condo WILL NOT disappoint! Bill made it very easy and pleasant also. Thanks Bill!

This was the best condo we have ever stayed in it is a 8 star condo.

  • 5 of 5

I came here for my sons senior trip.We have stayed at bay and beach resort or 4 years now. This is the best condo we have ever stayed in. It has tons of room. It is decorated great. The views are wonderful. They have everything in this condo that you would ever need and then some. You have the bay that you are staying on and you can also see the beach. The owner is great to work with. We had no problems with this condo at all. I'm hoping to get it next year for my other sons senior trip next year. The condo was spotless when we arrived. There are directions for everything and if you have questions you can call them. If you want the best condo rent this one.

Really nice property - would stay here again in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We had a family of five - parents, two college age children and a high schooler. The size of the place was surprising - such large living areas...bedrooms were spacious also.

The penthouse roof and hot tub were worth the price of were the panoramic view of the beach and the bay off the balcony. We loved the lazy river, as well as the beach access (the walkover really helped us, we were at the beach within 5-7 minutes).

The one thing I would suggest is more extra linens and pillows, we found one for the sleeper sofa, but wish there would have been more.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Thomas, for your kind words about our condo. Perhaps you missed the closets that have the extra pillows. We provide very nice linens for each of the beds and the sleeper sofa. And, if you should find anything not readily visible next trip, please call us so we can make sure you locate it or we will bring it to you. I hope you and your family will be return guests soon.
