About the property

Penthouse Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

When you’re looking for the perfect family getaway on the pristine shores of Panama City Beach, you’ll find no better accommodations than our luxurious 2-story beachfront penthouse in the secluded Carillon Beach village at Pinnacle Port Resort.

Located at the far-west end of Panama City Beach, Pinnacle Port Resort offers the same sugar-white sand beaches and sparkling waters of this award-winning Emerald Coast – yet its location is a relaxing respite from the traffic and noise in the heart of the city. This resort, with onsite parking that requires no walk-overs, is nestled in 25 quiet acres. This classic resort even offers a rare treat: boat docks.

As soon as you enter the penthouse, you are mesmerized first by the spectacular ocean and lake views throughout; then, the comfortable condo itself – with its cushy furniture and lush tropical decor – draws you in. Makes you want you kick off your shoes and put your feet up – most likely on the private balcony that overlooks the beach!

Our beautiful, professionally remodeled penthouse is designed with an inviting gathering room downstairs, and a connecting master suite behind double doors. This master suite, with a queen-size bed and gulf views, includes a walk-in closet, a lovely attached full bath with tub and shower, and a private balcony. A sumptuous queen-size bed beckons you to make yourself at home.

From this perfect family hideaway, you may find yourself drawn to your private balcony with a steaming cup of coffee or tea, watching a brilliant array of colors parade across the water and sky as the sun rises. Perhaps the late sleepers will still be tucked in their cozy beds upstairs.

Upstairs, our penthouse condo offers two additional bedrooms. One bedroom includes an inviting queen size bed, a flat-screen TV, and an attached bath. The second bedroom, with two single beds, and also equipped with a TV, is warm and welcoming. A third full bath with shower is located off the hallway and serves the second-bedroom guests as well as visitors. All baths are fully stocked with the usual and expected niceties – from soft facial tissue and other superior paper products to fine linens and hand soaps, hand sanitizers, and more. The upstairs also has a private balcony. A comfy pullout sofa bed in the sitting room downstairs offers yet more room for additional guests.

The beautifully redecorated full kitchen on the lower level boasts granite counter tops, a full refrigerator, and all the supplies you need when you clean and cook: dish soaps, liquid hand soaps and other cleaning products, as well as paper towels, dish towels and more within easy reach. You’ll discover cookware, plates, glasses, dinnerware and all the other amenities to make your stay a breeze.

The breakfast bar attached to the kitchen is the perfect place to sip your favorite beverage or eat breakfast; or you might enjoy a delicious dinner at the separate dining table, straight from your own kitchen – maybe luscious fresh-caught seafood!

It’s easy to stay in touch with family and friends – or keep up with that game you’re playing online – with complimentary long-distance phone and Wi-Fi services. No detail has been overlooked to make your stay safe, comfortable, and convenient. You’ll even discover beverage coasters and pillow covers among the many special touches throughout the condo. Loading and unloading your luggage is made convenient by sturdy luggage carts and large modern elevators.

Eventually, the pull of outside – its temperate breezes, beautiful beaches and numerous outdoor activities – entices you out the door. Just steps away from the elevators downstairs, a large indoor/outdoor pool awaits, one of two onsite pools, inviting you to make a quick trek to a refreshing dip or swim.

The second large outdoor pool is located directly beneath your balcony, from where you can watch your family. Or you may simply want to take advantage of the comfortable pool furniture and continue that book you brought with you on vacation! You’ll be rewarded with a background of happy pool noises and the shush of waves on the shore.

In season, a short-order grille at the large pool serves delicious hot sandwiches. You will also find onsite tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, and horseshoes – complimentary additions usually not found at newer resorts.

Beyond, the rhythmic sounds of crystalline waves on the powder-white beaches will coax you to walk the shore, wade into the waves, or wet a hook on the fishing docks just a stroll across the parking lot. We're also pleased to provide free beach service - a rare treat!

The resort offers its guests kayak and paddleboard rentals on the property. You can also rent bikes – and safely bike the private community to nearby attractions. Onsite boat ramps make it easy to launch a rented boat – or your own! – right into Lake Powell.

You might choose to take a walk to the nearby Carillon Beach and perhaps enjoy a live concert on the green, or inspect the 35-bell carillon located in Carillon Circle. The carillon contributes what bell towers have given European villages for centuries – the sense of a well-run community.

It’s easy to understand why Carillon Beach at Pinnacle Port Resort is a favorite destination for marriages, honeymoons, and family getaways. The beautiful vistas, the amazing colors of nature at its finest, and the peaceful surrounds of Pinnacle Port Resort also make it a favorite destination for writers, artists, musicians, nature-lovers and daydreamers.

A popular eco-tourism hotspot, Carillon Beach offers acres of unspoiled wilderness for bird-watchers, fishermen, and those fascinated by the area’s famous butterfly migration – areas easily accessible by renting a kayak. Camp Helen, a state park, is located just across the lake.

Other nearby family attractions include numerous shops, water and amusement parks, a zoo, a racetrack and a miniature golf course, as well as fabulous restaurants and family-friendly entertainment. Every guest is sure to find a favorite activity – from shopping to snorkeling or scuba diving, from boating to fishing, surfing or parasailing. Panama City Beach, home to the PGA Tour Qualifying School, also offers eight nearby golf courses.

Guests of Pinnacle Port Resort enjoy the rare pleasure of nearby Carousel, a local butcher shop/wine shop, where you can purchase a lovely bottle of wine while the butcher carves your favorite steak. Back at the condo, you can enjoy your steak – or fresh seafood – cooked on one of the many onsite grills.

However you choose to spend your vacation, we want you to feel like special guests in our home – not just vacationers. We believe you will find our penthouse very comfortable and accommodating, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. This property compares to the finest condominiums, but at an affordable price.

About Charlotte Bickley, I own and manage this property

I was born and raised in Thomaston, Georgia. It seems that wherever I travel, I meet someone who knows someone from Thomaston. The old saying, 'It's a small world' is really true. You may know someone who lives near Thomaston too.

Charlotte Bickley, I own and manage this property purchased this condo in 2002

Why Charlotte Bickley, I own and manage this property chose Laguna Beach

When I first visited Pinnacle Port in the late 70s, it seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. We had to drive miles just to order a hamburger or buy a loaf of bread. Many years passed by, and who would have thought - we visited the area again and fell in love for the first time. It's so family-friendly and quiet, tucked away in the secluded Carillon community, you will feel as though you are on an island with lots of friends. But don't be fooled: food, shopping and entertainment are all a short drive away. Come experience for yourself!

What makes this condo unique

Two pools; tennis court; shuffleboard courts; basketball court; horseshoes pit; outdoor grills and nearby picnic tables. Free Wi-Fi and beach services.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 adults, 3 teenagers, and 1 child thoroughly enjoyed this condo. The description says it all: beautifully decorated, beautiful views, etc. Everything about the condo was as described. This may sound odd to those of you who like to eat out while on vacation, but my favorite thing about this condo was the kitchen. It has every pot, pan, bowl, etc that you could possibly need to cook any meal. There were also necessaties stored in the pantry. I've been to condos before that required you purchase or bring your own paper towels, garbage bags, dish detergent, etc, but this condo was well-stocked and well-prepared.

Also, the bedroom and bathroom on the main level was perfect for my husband because he has trouble climbing stairs. The condo was great, and we will definitely be back.

Wonderful Condo!! Perfect for our 3 generation family!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse condo is fabulous! The views from both balconies are beautiful, one on main level with view of the beautiful ocean and beach, the other of the lovely lake and green space. All three bedrooms are located such that all guests have great privacy, room and storage space (roomy closets), and three full bathrooms were a blessing. We have NOTHING negative to say. Everything we needed was there. Kitchen is fully stocked and updated with lots of storage space in joining laundry room. The owner was fabulous to deal with. We made wonderful memories and had a great time in this fantastic home. Thank you for caring about the details, Charlotte!
