This property has a perfect location for enjoying the beach and all PCB has to offer. Avoiding the elevators was super convenient and there was plenty of space for our family of four. We didn’t cook much but all the essentials are there for your use. Ella and Ernest were very easy to work with and ensured that our vacation was perfect.

The view is amazing and the condo was very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The kitchen is well equipped so you can make toast OR a gourmet meal. If you don't want to do either, there is an excellent on-site restaurant. The resort has many amenities for all ages and it is an easy walk to Pier Park. Ella and Ernest were very helpful and gracious hosts. Do not hesitate to spend your vacation at their condo. You won't be disappointed!
