About Paula and Doug Norris

My husband Doug, my daughter Madison, and I (Paula) love Panama City Beach! Growing up in Georgia my family would come to Panama City Beach every year. So when I met Doug (he grew up in Las Vegas, NV) I had to take him to the world's most beautiful beaches of the gulf of Mexico and he loved it also. He couldn't believe it had white sand and the water is warm from about April thru October. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Paula and Doug Norris purchased this condo in 2014

Why Paula and Doug Norris chose Florida North West

We love that the Top of the gulf is right on the ocean. You don't even have to get out of the bed to see the beautiful ocean view! Close to attractions, shopping and our favorite restaurants! The complex is clean and well kept.

What makes this condo unique

The Complex is small and family friendly. Its is also walking distance to the major night clubs if you want to go but far enough away if you don't. It has common area balconies or you can just open your window and enjoy the breeze! Plenty of lounge chairs by the pool and also a kiddie pool.

Our first time in PCB, I read reviews of the Norris's Condo and everyone seemed to enjoy it... so we gave it a try! We were hesitant about PCB, but staying at this condo made it soooo much better! I loved have security and the fact that they supply chairs and a tent. The condo was furnished with supplies including a couple of games. Thanks again for the stay!

Cute condo right on the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing, Right on the beach!! Beautiful view of the ocean. I stayed in room #301 and it was very clean and came with everything you need. It was decorated beautifully with a beach theme. Stainless steel appliances, 1 queen bed, 1 sofa-bed, and 2 bunk beds. Close to many restaurants, shops and activities. Right next door to popular club LaVela. My only complaint was the bathroom was very small but workable. I'll definitely stay here again for my next trip to the area. The owner Paula was very sweet and allowed us a early check-in which was greatly appreciated coming off a nine hour drive. You wont be disappointed if you stay here.
