As you enter the foyer, you will notice the open stairway with a view through to the living area. Straight ahead is the dining table. On the left side of the foyer is a utilities closet with shelving and space for storing your beach necessities and supplies.

When you approach the dining area, you will notice the full sized and fully equipped kitchen on your left. Our update/remodel is complete!

The living area features plush seating for six, along with its' own private balcony, and a 46" HiSense Smart TV. The balcony has a table for intimate dining, Adirondack chair seating for three, plus the panoramic view of Lake Powell and Phillips Inlet.

Past the living area is access to the main level Master Suite, with walk-in closet and ensuite bath with step-in shower. This bedroom is equipped with two night stands, dresser and a Vizio 32" Smart TV. This suite also features spectacular views of the southern side of Lake Powell and Phillips Inlet.

This room has twin beds, a 32" Vizio Smart TV, dresser, night stand and great sized double closet. It also has views of Lake Powell. Some of our guests push the twin beds together to form a larger, singular sleeping surface similar to a king sized bed. It takes little effort!

The Master also has it's own private balcony stocked with two new Adirondack chairs. Great for early morning sunrises or late night views of the lights down the beach on the Miracle Strip of Panama City. The views from this well-appointed suite are gorgeous.

To the right and left of the master bed, are His and Her closets with a full sized dresser. This room contains a rocking chair good for putting the baby or Mom to sleep for some great naptime. Further right is the Master ensuite bath. The glass enclosure for the tub and shower capped the complete remodel of this bath.

Why Pam Nix and Don Nix chose Laguna Beach

Pinnacle Port combines secured access to the best of both water worlds - Direct access to 740 acre Lake Powell for fishing and water activities, and its' ocean front location is perfect for watching the waves roll in and feeling the Gulf breezes on sunny days! Located just in Bay County, on the far west end of Panama City Beach, Pinnacle Port offers dining, shopping and luxurious Spa treatment literally steps away, along with quick access to both 30A and Pier Park! It's a great place for Fun for the entire family. On campus, there are many outdoor recreational activities available. In the main tower, you have also have access to His and Her Saunas, and a small fitness center. Not to mention the free, available WiFi! Of course, you should always have a "Plan B" WiFi account available for emergency use and during peak usage times.

What makes this condo unique

Adults love Pinnacle Port because of its' versatility. Within its' 24 acres, there is access to plenty of campus-based activities. In addition, there are numerous water activities available in the very hard-to-find combination of freshwater and saltwater - Lake Powell and the Gulf of Mexico...all right at your doorstep!

Gated access, along with 24-hour campus patrol, give parents a sense of security, knowing their children are sheltered from some of the beach activities we'd prefer our kids not be exposed to at their young ages. Pinnacle Port is like staying on your own little private island...But with easy and quick access to all the necessities like food, dining, entertainment and shopping, just a few minutes away.

Even the elevator service at Pinnacle Port is beyond compare! No long waits.

Perfect place for a beach vacation with a family!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was exactly as described and is in a great location right on the beach. We loved not having to pack a ton of stuff and just being able to walk out to the beach and enjoy. The great layout of the condo made it easy to keep the sand under control as we went back and forth to the beach with our busy family. The Carrillon community was great with plenty of restaurants nearby and nice pools, while not being overly crowded. Don & Pam were great with info and our whole family had a blast.

Perfect all the way around

  • 5 of 5

This "paradise on the beach" condo was perfect for our family of seven. Grandparents, teenagers, and my wife and I and our three year old had plenty of space. Plenty of things to do for every taste. Beach, fishing, and pool everything you could ask for in a vacation, just wish it was longer. The Nix were wonderful we had no problems they made everything very simple. We will definitely rent with them again. Thank you for sharing your place with my family.

Just what the doctor ordered!

We were actually guests of the Nixes and this unit worked out perfectly!

Our condo was clean and very comfortable. Unfortunately, our vacation

was for just 7 days!!! We highly recommend the Nixes and Pinnacle Port

for family friendly vacations!
