About Danielle Arrington

Unit is co-owned. One is a Registered Nurse and the other owns a Family Restaurant. Both love dogs and enjoy traveling to the beach and Disney especially with the grandchildern.

Danielle Arrington purchased this condo in 2012

Why Danielle Arrington chose Panama City Beach Area

We fell in love with Panama City Beach our first time we visited July 4th 2011. The clear blue green water and white sandy beaches hooked us. We decided to purchase a condo at that is in a great location and brings a sense of comfort, peace, and relaxation away from home.

What makes this condo unique

Parking requires a pass, and security is on premises. Numerous attractions are nearby. Shopping and Restaurants are all within a short distance all for your enjoyment. You can either drive or walk to Club La Vela (next door), Spinnakers, Wonder Works, and Ripley's. Wal-Mart is just a short trip up the road. Alvin's surf shop is located across the road for all you souvenir needs. Take a short drive to Pier Park which is growing daily. There is a Maze and Mini Golf with in short driving distance as well. This condo is in a nice prime location!

Great Weekend Getaway Spot !

  • 4 of 5

Went for a quick weekend (Fri to Sun). Perfect location!!---not close to the high rise condos and too many people. Close but not too close to great places to eat, shop and nightlife. Room was clean, AC worked great, the view is amazing, bed was very comfortable and the complex was clean and well taken care of. Will rent again ! The Home Away App was great as we communicated directly with the owner--which we loved !!!

Condo was clean and well stocked with everything. Full size appliances. Great for small family. The only down side is no balcony. Great view from windows. Thanks Danielle! Had a great time with family. Definitely good value.

Worst VRBO I have rented

  • 1 of 5

We have rented places from VRBO many times. If this had been the first time I rented from VRBO, I would have to think twice about renting from this site again. We were half way to Panama City Beach before the owner finally responded to my 2 requests on 2 different days for the address. We were told parking was $15, but we were charged $25. We were not told about $15 for wrist bands that must be worn at all times. This was like a room at Extended Stay, but smaller. Broken glass on the floor; smudges on the mirrors and windows; a layer of dust on everything; bar stools were very wobbly; and cracks in the shower floor. Contacted the owner about internet access and got a 2 word reply of "Down Stairs". I was left on my own to figure out exactly were. You have to strip the beds, take out the garbage, and then leave $50 on the table for house keeping. This is definitely not the normal for places listed on this site. On the positive side, the view was fantastic.

Owner's Response: Maid service corrected issue as soon as I was notified that unit had not been cleaned. The address of the condo was on renters conformation e-mail. Cleaners arrived promptly to correct problem. For security purposes the condo association charges for wrist bands and parking. Renter was informed that internet service is provided by TOG in the in WIFI room which is located on first floor.

Charming quaint unit with the perfect view!

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost the owner was very hands on and responded with any questions I had promptly.

{{ Unit is lavishly decorated and the top of the line items were in the condo; Including mattress, pillows, cookware and furnishings}}

Location is a plus ... as you can be anywhere in just a hop skip and jump!! Security at complex was VERY hands on which was an added benefit as you really felt they were doing their job.

Complex has been updated and grounds were very clean; beach was great location to night life and restaurants as well. If you are looking for a reasonable, clean and perfect condo this one is the one for you!! Yes, the condo is small, but you are not in the room very much anyway if you are like us! It's GO GO GO!!!!

(By the way if you want a nice pool with all adults - head over to Lavela...beach side, water fall and they don't hold back on the drinks; we didn't even know they had a pool)

(The only beef I had was an ADDED $15.00 parking fee).
