2 Bedroom/2 Bath Condo With Gorgeous Water Views - Sleeps 7

The perfect family destination! Our newly remodeled condo has the best of both worlds - the beach and the lake. Located directly on beautiful Lake Powell and Philips Inlet, our condo provides instant access to the water from our onsite boat ramp. Enjoy fishing, boating, jet-skiing, paddle-boarding, tubing, kayaking, and swimming in the lake. Or grab your coolers and beach towels and head over to the clear emerald waters and sugar-white beaches of the gulf - only 5 minutes away. Of course with 2 onsite pools just steps from our door, you may prefer to simply relax and work on your tan here.

About Cara English Catrett

The condo owners have selected Cara English Catrett to manage the rentals for this beautiful unit. Cara just loves renting this gorgeous lakefront condo to Panama City visitors and in the process, making new friends. She and her husband grew up in neighboring small Alabama towns, only 90 minutes from the beautiful Florida beaches. They've spent their whole lives enjoying all kinds of beach activities like swimming, snorkeling, fishing, canoeing, and boating. Panama City Beach was the natural choice when they wanted to purchase their own piece of paradise. As a true Southerner, Cara loves to share the famous 'southern hospitality' with her guests at her own property as well as the others she manages. She'd love to host you and your family. You're certain to fall in love with this beautiful condo - in fact, you probably won't want to leave!

Cara English Catrett purchased this condo in 2014

Why Cara English Catrett chose West Panama City Beach

The main reason the owners chose this property was because of the direct access to Lake Powell and the gulf beach thru Philips Inlet. At Pirate's Cove they like to fish, participate in a variety of water sports, have use of a private boat landing, and enjoy 2 swimming pools. Plus, it's all just minutes from grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacy, the beach, and Pier Park.

What makes this condo unique

The really unique feature of this property is its location - with Lake Powell being one of a few natural lakes in the world with a natural inlet that flows right into the gulf. You can use a boat or other watercraft to go to the beach from our own private boat landing. This Pirate's Cove condo has a great view of the lake, and it is very quiet and family-friendly.

Perfect for Paddlers

  • 5 of 5

The last time I stayed at Pirate's Cove the year was 1982, I was 12 years old, and the property wasn't much more than a campground. I was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of updates. Unchanged from 1982 is the peaceful dune lake and quiet little cul-de-sac. One of the best things about this property is that you can easily paddle to the beach or fish from the pier. The condo has everything you need for a lengthy stay including a nice gas grill on the back deck and the inside was spotless and neatly decorated. From the beginning of the reservation process to the end of the stay Cara was very helpful. My family and I have stayed at a lot of places around Inlet Beach and this has to be one of the more unique properties. Can't wait to come back, just hope it doesn't take another 35 years ; )

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great! It's got a great view of Lake Powell and very easy access to beautiful beaches. The pool is a nice place to cool off too! We went on a holiday weekend and still accessed the beach with no problem! Cara is really easy to work with on booking and goes out of her way to make sure you have what you need. We will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you decided to stay with us for Memorial Weekend. Hopefully you and your family got to spend a little time at the lake, the pool, and the beach -- since all three are so easy to access from Pirate's Cove. You've been a pleasure to work with, and I hope y'all will come back soon!

My family and I had such a wonderful and relaxing time at Pirates Cove! The condo was spacious and beautifully decorated. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes and appliances. It is conveniently located near stores and beaches. There was a spacious grilling area and the view was spectacular. The manager of the property was beyond amazing. She was very pleasant and a pleasure to work with. I definitely recommend this rental for couples and families!
