About Jay and Lee Costello

My husband and I are longtime residents of Panama City. We have always enjoyed the beautiful fun and relaxing atmosphere at Panama City Beach at our Sunbird condo. We enjoy swimming, biking and running on the world's most beautiful beaches.

Jay and Lee Costello purchased this condo in 1987

Why Jay and Lee Costello chose Florida North West

Although we live in Panama City our family has enjoyed relaxing on Panama City Beach for decades. It is a wonderful location that is convenient to the area attractions. (Shipwreck Island Waterpark, Wonderworks, Ripley's Believe it or Not, Pier Park, Wal Mart)

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.

Wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

The condo was great! A bit smaller than ones I've stayed in previously, but that wasn't a problem. I liked being down on this end of the beach-it seemed much quieter than up closer to Pier Park. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for the stay, and all my questions were answered very quickly!

Very convenient!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here. Perfect size for a family of four with young children. We could walk pretty much anywhere we wanted to go including mini golf, Walmart, ice cream, and lots of places to eat. Bring cash to pay for parking permit and swim bands. Also bring LOTS of quarters if you plan to do laundry on site. $4.25 to wash and dry and no bills or cards accepted.

Relaxing and Easy

  • 5 of 5

Lee was extremely pleasant to deal with. He made everything smooth and was very detailed in every bit of our communications leading up to our stay. He sent our deposit back and we had it within a few days after our departure. The condo was decorated very lovely and relaxing. We had no issues during our entire stay and they had the condo well stocked as we cooked quite a bit during our stay. If we vacation in Florida next summer, our plans are to reconnect with Lee. Thanks again!

Great place with a good location! I loved that it was next door to Pineapple Willy's! Enjoyed our stay very much and hope we can return soon. Jay and Lee were very easy to work with on the rental. I had my security deposit back to me within a week of our departure! Would definitely recommend renting this condo!

Jay and Lee's condo was exceptional. Neat, clean and very roomy. Fully equipped. Breath taking view. Easy access to the pool and beach. The location couldn't be better. October is our favorite time of year to go. If you've never been in the fall, try it! We will definitely be back!
