Jay and Lee Costello purchased this condo in 1987

Why Jay and Lee Costello chose Panama City Beach

What makes this condo unique

Whether we're relaxing on the private balcony while watching the spectacular sunsets or enjoying dinner on the deck at Pinneapple Willys it is the perfect place for families to have fun and unwind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to tell you how much we loved the condo. It was wonderful to be able to enjoy the view from anywhere you were in the condo. We will most definitely be a repeat customer and tell all our friends. .... Going to sleep by the sound of the ocean was awesome. The weather was perfect and we kept the doors open night and day. With the constant breeze we did not use the central air/heat at all. Perfect! The updated decor was exactly what I would have picked out. We did not want to leave. Thanks again for such an awesome birthday.

****Very Nice!

  • 4 of 5

We celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary! The condo was very clean. Kitchen was well stocked. We loved using the float in the ocean. (located in master closet) The view was absolutely perfect. Located right next door to Pineapple Willy's. We walked over and ordered our lunch and ate it on the beach. Our weekend was very relaxing. My only complaint is the master bedroom is in need of blinds or blackout curtains. We personally like it very dark so we can sleep in on our vacations. Everything else about the condo was awesome!

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lee and Jay's condo for nearly a week and first I want to comment on Lee and Jay. I cannot say enough about these two wonderful people. We stayed right when Hurricane Irma was coming through and both Lee and Jay were phenomenal in keeping us updated and answering all of our questions (and we had a lot of questions). They were kind the entire way through and it was so appreciated. The condo is adorable, it's a little older, but the view is perfect! The living room furniture is super comfy. The beach is literally steps away. The only complaint I had was the bed. It was loud when you move around on it, and it's a VERY firm mattress. Everything else about our trip was wonderful and we would definitely love to come back and work with Jay and Lee again.
