Our vacation rental unit lives up to its location on Long Beach.

After we purchased the condo earlier this year, we renovated it with personal use in mind.

With these renovation you should find the condo very pleasant, particularly with the views of the Gulf from the living area of the condo, including the kitchen.

It also has wireless internet access using your tablet/cell phone/portable free unlimited long distance calling within to Canada and the United States.The condo is equipped with a washer dryer, a microwave, and a dishwasher.

About Jim Kirby

I am a retired engineer. I own this unit together with my wife and my brother and sister-in-law.

In my former job I worked as a senior manager in the investment planning division of Ontario Power Generation. My unit analyzed investments and re-investments in physical plants (as opposed to financial investments).

Of interest to potential renters is my understanding, developed over 35 years of working in the electricity industry, of the importance of adequate maintenance. I apply this understanding in maintaining my condo.

In the short run, maintenance looks like a cost, but even in the medium, and most certainly in the longer term, postponing maintenance results usefulness and increases costs. we apply this understanding to maintaining our unit. We are looking for repeat business and if we do not maintain our unit we will not get that.

Additionally, we use the condo ourselves when it is not being rented out and our own enjoyment depends upon the quality of maintenance.

I still keep my kind active doing volunteer analysis for the University of Waterloo institute for Sustainable Energy (Wise).

My wife Sue and I are pictured above during a trip to China.

Jim Kirby purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jim Kirby chose Panama City Beach Area

There is nothing between our private 14th floor balcony and the sparkling waters of the gulf but the condo large swimming pool and the white 'sugar sand' of Long Beach. The sunsets seen from the balcony are spectacular. I started with the balcony since it is my favorite spot. I am disabled (more like mobility challenged) so sitting out of the balcony watching the Gulf, reading a book, or doing my volunteer work on a a portable computer. The unit has Wi-Fi, so do not forget yours, if you are so inclined.

Long Beach set a high standard and is the major reason for renting this unit, but our newly renovated unit matches it.

This one bedroom, 850 square foot unit, has two full washrooms and can sleep up to six. Here's how. There is a King Size bed in the master bedroom, a Bunkie and a brand new queen size pull out couch in the living area. (Many adults would find sleep in the upper bunk a challenge.) The unit comes equipped with a washer-drier (no Laundromats for you), a microwave oven, a dishwasher and a well stocked kitchen.

When we bought this unit we replaced most of the furniture, tore out aging broadloom and replaced it with ceramic tile throughout, repainted, fixed the crown molding, replaced a broken air conditioner and replaced the hot water heater because it was getting corroded (maintenance).

In 2017 we bought a new memory foam bed.

What makes this condo unique

When you rent directly on the beach you do not have to fight the traffic to get to the beach, and do not have to circle around looking for a parking spot. After a day in the sun swimming in the gulf or the large outdoor pool, sunning yourself on Long Beach, hunting for seashells, jogging, walking, building sandcastles, or fishing off of a nearby pier you do not have to pack up to go back to a motel.

This stay in Florida has been the best. We loved the condo. Has every thing there that we needed and more. You are right there in the beach and right on the main street. When we come back we will most defiantly stay here again... Thanks for making out first time to Florida one we will not forget.

All about the view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented for a week and were very pleased with this condo; having 2 bathrooms is wonderful and the master bedroom is large with a private bath. The king size bed was comfortable and we slept great! I wanted an ocean view condo and this one did NOT disappoint at all. We spent a lot of time on the balcony, which is nicely sized. In the past we have had great views when renting other ocean front units, but not much room to stretch out on the balcony. This balcony has a large table and chairs along with a lounge chair and still more room! We even saw dolphins one afternoon. The location is right in the middle of the action, so yes, lots of traffic, but you can walk to several places. Walmart is very close so no worries about finding a grocery store. The owners were great to work with throughout my booking process. The only recommendation I would make is to have a light over the key code box to pull into the parking garage; it is hard to see at night while entering the code.

Owner's Response: Hi Janet, Chase, and Gavin, My brother Pat and I appreciate hearing about how much you liked the condo, because we made sure we renovated it when we purchased the unit. We use it ourselves and all that if we enjoy it, you will as well. The condos location on front beach road right on the water is a big asset and the view from our balcony is one of the things that we enjoy very much as well. All I can say is thank you very much for this review and that we will try to keep things so that are renters enjoy them. Jim

What a great experience

  • 5 of 5

This condo was awesome, clean, bright, very well stocked with dishes, and everything you need. We had an awesome time while there for the USFA softball World Series. The balcony overlooking the gulf has amazing views, was comfortable. The master suite was great, king size bed and private bath. Two baths in the condo was quite convenient with two teenagers. Plenty of room in the condo, the internet connections were sketchy, but hey we were on vacation. Never had an issue with the elevators, like our friends who stay at other condos'. This place was close to places to do things, go karts, WonderWorks, Ripley's, shopping, restaurants, ... loved our stay in PCB, all except the traffic!! wow!!

Relaxing week.

  • 5 of 5

The Kirby's made our stay wonderful from start to finish. My husband and our 2 grown children spent a glorious week in this unit and would not hesitate to stay again. We had plenty of room, and loved that it had 2 full baths. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. Great location too! Easy walking distance from Pinapple Willies, great breakfast at American Diner, and lunch or supper at Dee's Hangout.Thank you so much!
