Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband and I are both in our 50s and live in a NW suburb of Chicago. I am the Prepress Customer Service Specialist for our local Newspaper and my husband is a Custodian for a nearby School. Be sure to check the owners tab for more reviews as my previous guest book ceased operatation.

Why the Owner Chose Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
My husband and I had been looking for a place for a couple years in Arizona before we bought our condo in Panama City Beach. We decided on Panama City Beach at the time because you could still get reasonably priced condos on the Gulf compared to other parts of Florida. We are very glad we did and enjoy using our condo and renting it out when we are not using it.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our most favorite part of owning this condo is the balcony. It is a private balcony and we just love sitting out be it just enjoying our coffee in the morning or watching the beautiful sunsets. It is also very nice on cool days when the sun is out as facing the gulf, we are blocked from the cooler Northern breeze. There are many golf courses nearby with one being practically across the street. Last, but not least is the Beach. Beautiful white sand and Emerald green waters.
