Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for offering up such a great condo. It had all the comforts of home with a fantastic view. The balcony makes for a perfect photography platform among so many other things. The dolphins put on quite a show. I watched probably 2 dozen of them playing right off the sandbar for about 3 hours on Saturday. They were particularly playful. Im pretty sure I got some good shots of them jumping several feet out of the water.

Your place is pretty comfy. The bed is particularly the extra pillows and dreamy mattress. And the bath towels...I'm going shopping for those tomorrow. Big flat screens and cable are a nice touch for downtime. As are plenty of bath and beach towels. You've really thought the place out well. I felt at home.

But the big draw for me is the balcony. And the huge windows/doors. Can't say the granite counters didn't come in handy either...along with the full kitchen. But it's all about the balcony and you have a winner there.

Looking forward to visiting again.

This was our 3rd year of staying at this condo and as always it was great. Gary does a wonderful job of keeping it clean and updated. Excellent location on the beach also. This is the only place we plan to stay for our future vacations to Panama City Beach!!

Gorgeous upgraded condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year staying in this condo and it was by far the best we have seen in Tropic Winds yet. The condo was beautifully decorated from top to bottom and very clean. It had everything we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The fact that it is a corner unit provided the most amazing views of the sunset. My husband and I could not have wanted for anything more during our vacation stay. Excellent experience!!

5 months in a 5 star condo 👍

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in this condo for a 5th period. We've booked again for 5months for next winter season. The condo is high end with beautiful decor and taste. The owner is wonderful and always ready to make sure your stay is a great experience. The resort is well maintained and getting better. Having assigned parking is a good bonus. His cleaning staff are first class. We are very impressed how fast Gary has always gotten back to us either by a phone call or email. This is much appreciated. Our overall experience in this condo has been delightful.

My 60th Birthday and Retirement Celebration

  • 5 of 5

I have been using VRBO since 2009 and this was my first time Staying in PCB. Thanks to Gary it was Perfection. His cleaning staff has to be hands down the best I have ever seen anywhere including hotels. There was not one thing I could have wanted for, The decor was magnificent and the comfort was perfect. I always say if it is clean, has a comfortable mattress and a working TV everything else is gravy! It had everything you could want. Including a Kuerig and a telephone with long distance calling, you don't get that anywhere let alone a land line anymore. When we arrived Gary had asked his cleaning staff to Treat me to a special gift wine and chocolates, to mark My BD and Retirement. Totally unnecessary but such a lovely

gesture.The kitchen was stocked with everything you could need, dish soap, laundry soap and even shampoos, no 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom well stocked! I especially was appreciative of the beach chairs which were comfortable not cheap and the umbrella if needed. We had beach service until Oct 31 but we were there until Nov 6. In 13 straight days we had perfect sunsets and beautiful hot weather. The large end balcony was the place to be every night to watch the sunset I know Gary can't control that but it was an added bonus for us who are beach people, not pool people so we loved being on the beach everyday. I would not hesitate to rent off Gary again or recommend any of his properties as he seems to be a perfectionist and know what people want and like. It was beautiful but you didn't feel you couldn't live there comfortably during our 2 weeks. Wifi was easy and fast. Elevator was quick parking spot was tight with our van but we managed to not hit anything during our stay. Even the grills were clean and well maintained by the management. The pictures do not do the master bathroom justice or his design in the shower. Colours are my favorites so of course to me everything was perfection. I loved the fact that Gary left idiot proof instructions for the TV so that you didn't stress about 3 sets of controls for people like us who aren't exactly electronic savvy. I would love to try and stay during the winter months but some lucky renters are in already and I am sure once you find a good thing you won't let it go. Thanks again Gary for your hospitality and to your cleaning staff Miranda and Casey. Thank you for everything. You went over and above and we so appreciated it all. Hope we are lucky enough to stay again some time. Robin

Amazing view, beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here and loved it so much! The condo was even nicer than the pictures and had everything we could want and then some. The 15th floor view from the balcony was panoramic and breathtaking. Will definitely book again.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really loved everything about this condo. The size of the unit, the furnishings, the balcony, the bed was very comfortable, the master bath was amazing. This is our second trip to PCB and will definitely stay here again unless we bring our Yorkie with us. That is the only thing I would say would be nice to bring our small pet. The view from the corner unit balcony was incredible. The assigned parking spot was great. Thanks Mr. Gilbert for sharing your condo with us.
