About The Owner

Welcome to the Lynx Gulf Dream, our favorite vacation destination. We are Kathleen and Nick Lewis and we reside in Wheaton, Il. We have 4 children who love PCB as much as we do. Nick, who was born and raised in Tennessee, grew up vacationing in PCB from the time he was just 6 years old. Kathleen, as one of 5 children of a US Marine, grew up coast to coast and had a few opportunities to live close to the beach. The gorgeous white sand and clear waters of the gulf are their dream come true. With a close-knit family, the Lewis' vacation with parents, in-laws, daughters and son in laws, and hopefully soon some grandchildren.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner chose Lower Grand Lagoon

There is nothing like it on the beach. Offers some of the best views. You can see sunrise and sunset right from your huge deck. Private elevator, semi-private pool and an open floor plan. You have the whole 2nd floor!

What makes this condo unique

The Lynx Gulf Dream feels like a home; not a vacation rental. The three flat condo is located right on the beach with great privacy. We occupy the whole second floor. The full-length deck lets guests enjoy the sound of the waves and the smell of the gulf without leaving their home. The views are amazing and the opportunities to enjoy sunset strolls or sunrise walks on the beach are plentiful.

A perfect Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. It is so open and airy and modern. And absolutely spotless! There wasn't even dust on the ceiling fans!!!The care takers were professional, friendly, and prompt to reply to any questions I had. I traveled with handicap seniors and having the elevator right by the car door that opened up into the actual unit was SO nice. The whole unit was ok for the wheelchair even though it is not advertised as a handicap unit. There were not handicap rails, we don't have those at home either. The only place she couldn't get to on her own was the huge, gorgeous balcony that was equipped with outdoor dining and lounge chairs and a gas grill. I took her over the one step down to the balcony a couple times and the other times she was content to set in the open doorway and look out. And this second floor unit is low enough that the view is amazing and she could still hear us when we were playing on the beach!

We cook when we travel instead of going out whenever possible and the kitchen was well appointed with plenty of service for our group of 8. The pool was icy cold but again, spotlessly clean and clear and kids swam in spite of the cold. The adults enjoyed the lounge chairs in the sun and watching. With two Masters, I hope to someday get to come back with another couple. It would be the perfect set up for a two or three family getaway. This is probably the last long road trip I will talk my Octogenarian relatives into taking with me and we could not have picked a better place!

Owner's Response: Bev, thank you for the great review! I am so glad that everything worked out with the wheelchair accessibility. I so enjoyed seeing the picture of her enjoying the books and the beautiful weather and fresh air. Memories like those are priceless! I do hope that we can help out in the future with your next vacation to Panama City Beach! Happy Holidays!

Luxurious Second Floor Unit

  • 5 of 5

After returning to this luxurious condo a few times my family takes pleasure in the private atmosphere that this second floor unit provides. The private balcony, elevator access to unit, closeness to local attractions, spaciousness of the unit, and the uncrowded beachfront are just a few of the many factors that summons us back to this property. Upon arrival we are constantly reminded of God's creation through the stunning beachfront views, various marine life, the power that the ocean displays, and the spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Our experience booking this unit has always been wonderful. We highly recommend this luxurious second floor unit.

Great Beachfront Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 stayed here a week in October 2016. The condo was beautiful and we had more the enough room for all of us. We enjoyed the balcony, pool and of course the beach every single day. Marcy was great to work with and she made us cookies and had coffee for us upon our arrival. Marcy provided great service and we enjoyed her great personality. Will definitely stay here again. And if we need something smaller sometime we will fine out what other properties Marcy manages.

Beautiful and Beachfront

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here a few weeks ago. We loved it and the condo is actually larger (and more beautiful) than the pictures convey. It allowed for easy beach access which was especially a plus with 2 small children. If we decide to stay in PCB again, I would definitely stay here again. My kids also loved having their own elevator and bunk beds. Marcy was easy to work with and even greeted us with cookies upon arrival at check-in. Thanks again for a wonderful week!

Owner's Response: Tiffany, it was so great meeting you and your family! I am so glad that you all enjoyed your stay. To see the faces of the kids when they looked at the stars and tried to pick which bed they were going to sleep in was priceless! I am glad you enjoyed the treats! Nick and Kathleen, as well as myself look forward your return! Thanks again for staying with us.

2016 Family Florida Trip

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we met Cindy at the condo until we left on the following Saturday we felt at home. This is a beautiful condo and pictures do not do it justice. Our family had not been to the beach as a family for several years. And this was our 11 month old grandson's first time at the beach. Part of the reason we booked this unit was for the pool and it was clean and inviting. There are several restaurants and gift shops within walking distance. Loved having our "own" elevator that opened right up into the condo. Felt like we were staying in the penthouse! We had a problem half way through the week with some construction going on, but Cindy and the owners, Nick and Kathleen, were quick to make it right. Plenty of room for a large family and very easy to settle in for the week. Washer and dryer worked great and the condo was very clean. We will keep this VRBO in mind for future family vacations and will highly recommend it to our friends who often rent a 4-bedroom condo. We have been coming to Panama City Beach for many years and I believe this was one of our best trips!!! Thank you Cindy, Nick, and Kathleen.

There is something for everyone at the Gulf Dream: jet skis, pontoon boats, parasailing, amusement parks, kayaks are all very close by. Boats for deep sea fishing as well as tours of the gulf including dolphin watching, trips to Shell Island are plentiful. But the very best part of the Gulf Dream's location is the awesome view of the gulf from the open living room, the white sand and the sound of the waves right on the full-length deck overlooking the gulf. It's a beautiful setting for a great beach vacation!
