About Shirley Cooley

We purchased this to be our home away from home. We just love it in Panama City and especially our little slice of paradise. Can't seem to get enough of the fresh oysters from the many local spots. Our plan is to retire here in about 5 more years.

Shirley Cooley purchased this condo in 2010

Why Shirley Cooley chose West Panama City Beach

We have vacationed in Panama City Beach many times and every time we talk about buying here. We love the west end of the beach. This is a perfect location. Close to Pier Park and that is a very hot spot for everyone, yet quick to jump on Back Beach Road. You don't get caught in the traffic. Very family friendly

What makes this condo unique

You can't believe your eyes when you see the sunsets from the balcony. It is our personal piece of Heaven on earth.

Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation with our family in this beautiful condo! The condo was very accommodating and spacious and we were excited about the wrap-around balcony. It was very convenient to everything and out of the main traffic. Would definitely like to stay here again!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect,including the weather. Your home is decorated beautiful. The balcony I could have just parked myself out there and not moved. My grandson had been down there before but too young to remember and he didn't want to leave. Thank you for sharing your home with us. I hope we can come back next year on fall break.

A great smaller condo where it is quieter and not so crowded.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the Aquavista property as it was not so crowded and you could have space on the beach with it not being so noisy. It was great not to have to wait on elevators like in larger condos. The property was clean even with the construction going on. It would have been good when we arrived to have someone in the office but we were able to call the people listed and they were prompt to call us back and try to help.

We have stayed at Aquavista many times before but first time in this unit and the LAST. Smoke detectors disconnected and no batteries! Baseboards were rotten or missing due to obvious water damage. Handles on sliding doors broken. Cobwebs galore and kitchen floor was NOT clean. Called immediately to report these issues but owner was out of the country on a cruise. Person I was dealing with contacted me once to say she was working on the issues but after that I had to contact her everyday for updates, I even sent pictures to which I got no response. We arrived on Saturday and it was THURSDAY before the smoke detectors were replaced and that was the ONLY thing that was fixed during our stay. Emailed the owner three days after our departure to discuss the issues and inquire when I would receive refund of the deposit. NO RESPONSE!! Had to call in order to get my deposit refunded. When I asked about the issues we had she said they were being fixed now.....which did not help our situation while on vacation. Owner indicated she had floors done earlier in the year but ran out of time before peak renting season to get baseboards done....REALLY? To charge the peak season amount for conditions like these is just WRONG! I really hope the owner had better accommodations on the cruise we paid for!!!
