About Marcy Brown

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.

Marcy Brown purchased this condo in 2012

Why Marcy Brown chose Panama City Beach Area

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.

Family Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation this year. Our condo was beautiful and perfect for our family of nine. The bedrooms were perfect for six adults and the grands loved the bunk beds! The deck was so spacious. The kids loved the pool, we rented beach chairs/umbrellas for the beach. We are looking forward to coming back!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this property. We were thrilled at the size and luxury offered by the owner. The kitchen was so well appointed that we had every utensil needed to cook and store food. The property manager was very nice and considerate of our needs. She addressed issues immediately and to conclusion. We would definitely recommend this property if you are looking for a relaxing and comfortable stay while at the beach.

It was the BEST! Beautiful spot! Beautiful accommodations!We did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 1week with some of our adult children and grandchildren. The layout was such that we had time together but you could easily have privacy when you needed/wanted. Beds were so comfortable- my daughter wants to find out what kind they are so she can get one for her home.

So much to do in the Panama City Beach area: we walked to Finns everyday for their fresh fish tacos and avocado toast. Yum! We will all miss that. Also just around the corner is Dat Cajun Place which has great fresh oysters and live music. Short drive will get you to beautiful Seaside for their famous lobster roll.

But mostly we enjoyed morning coffee on the deck everyday with its fantastic view of the ocean. Our very last day there we were treated to a dolphin show: they swam by and then leaped and twirled up out of the water!

Our family enjoyed paddleboarding, shell searching, walking the beach, and just relaxing in our chairs and reading. Our youngest granddaughter was a bit wary of the sea, so the condo pool was just perfect for her! The sunsets were a nightly event that always ended the "best day yet" ... until the next day 😀?

Marcy, the property manager, is so helpful and welcoming and always just a text away. She really goes above and beyond: one example, she has choc chip cookies for you on arrival. We all loved that after our long trip!

Guess the best recommendation came from our grandchildren who said "let's come here every year!!"

The condo was very spacious, clean and perfect for a large extended family.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great! We had plenty of room for the 9 of us. The cookies on arrival were a big hit! The beach was wonderful! My only complaint was that there weren't any beach chairs for us to use but we bought some cheap ones from the local souvenir shop.

Over all it was a great experience and we would definitely stay agin.

Owner's Response: Amy, I am so glad that your family enjoyed the condo and cookies:) . I am so sorry about the beach chairs. We have never included them and have never had anyone mention that. Most guests just rent them from the vendor or bring their own. But, as you know, we are all about making our vacation home as perfect as possible for our guests and really take suggestions seriously. I will be getting some beach chairs today, so next time you come back they will be there! Again, my apologies. Looking forward to having you again! Marcy

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome and the views were AMAZING!! The house was perfect for us. We were 2 moms traveling with 3 high school seniors on their spring break. While the beach and pool are perfect entertainment, there is also a go-cart/arcade/putt-putt golf facility within walking distance along with a souvenir shop. We made a point to eat at non-chain restaurants and were not disappointed. Marcy was great and dealt with any issues immediately. We will be back in the future!!

A Beautiful, Spectacular Condo located on "The World's Most Beautiful Beaches"

  • 5 of 5

This property was way more than we expected and the pictures do not do it justice. It is beautifully decorated with more room than you can imagine. 3 moms brought 9 high school seniors down for spring break and these teenagers had plenty of room to move around and spread out. Clean, Clean, Clean - this property is immaculate! The bedrooms were spacious with very comfortable bedding allowing all to sleep like a baby. The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed to cook your meals and the bathrooms had plenty of towels too! The elevator was a convenience getting your luggage up to the second floor and your groceries too! The balcony was extremely nice with plenty of seating for everyone. The water was extremely clear and calm and super pretty this trip.The property was easy in and easy out with covered parking and convenient to shopping and restaurants! And we cannot say enough sweet things about Miss Marcy! She is just precious! She was there to greet us as we arrived and was so good to explain everything in detail to us. The owners of this property are very, very lucky to have her as their manager! These Class of 2017 Seniors made some special memories that I'm sure they will carry on with them for years to come! Do not hesitate - Rent this place ASAP! We will be renting here again for sure!

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!
