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 Florida

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.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The condo is perfect because of location near stores and the beach. It's neatly decorated and very peaceful. Cara is a great manager. Very helpful and friendly. I look forward to staying there again.

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!

Really enjoyed the property. A couple of minor issues with the clothes dryer and dishwasher but otherwise worked well for our group.

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!

This wonderful, updated condo has more than enough room for our family of five. It has a well stocked kitchen, as well as comfortable furniture and beds with quality linens. It is perfectly located in a quiet complex that has everything we needed to make our stay memorable. We love being close to shopping and entertainment, but not in the middle of the PCB craziness.

Our kids fished off the dock early in the morning and late into the night, catching their share of mangrove snapper, which were delicious! Every day we launched our John boat into Lake Powell from the Pirate's Cove boat ramp and motored over to the beach at Phillips Inlet. When we weren't playing in the Gulf, we were kayaking or catching bait fish and crabs 50 ft across the beach in the inlet. The beach isn't heavily populated at this location and was just right for our family. AND, we collected tons of shells in the surf. The pool (in front of the condo) is a great place to take a late afternoon dip.

Cara is a dream to work with and truly strived to help us have a great stay. We loved this place and will be back... thanks for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Your family vacation sounds like a dream! The private boat ramp is a definite plus for us too. We love to fish and explore Phillips Inlet and Lake Powell. It's such a beautiful area, and the protected waters make it the best location in PCB for kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding. I really appreciate you taking the time to share your vacation experience online. We can't wait to host your family again!

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this condo for our beach trip this year. It was the first time we have stayed somewhere other than directly on the beach. It was quiet and the kids definitely enjoyed having the pool to themselves for most of our stay. Cara was fast to correct the problems we had (a cleaning mix-up and slow drain), wish we could have entered the unit and seen how beautiful it is right away. A note for people using the pull out sofa: sheets were provided for this bed, but there were no extra blankets/comforter, etc; so be sure to bring extra blankets if you plan to use the pull out sofa. Also, if you are tall, you will not do well with the shower on the 1st level. I had to do a back bend to wash my hair. Lastly, make sure you bring extra toilet paper/paper towels. We had to make a trip to the store on our first day for these essentials as we didn't realize they were not provided. This was my first experience with vrbo and all in all we would do it again. Cara was very helpful in ideas of places to go and things to do, and a pleasure to speak with and rent from.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review and for mentioning a couple of items that are easily fixed. I've already been discussing the shower head with the owners, and they said they will go right out and get a hand-held shower head that can be mounted higher than the current head. None of us had thought of it until you mentioned it. I wish you had texted or called me to ask about a blanket for the sofa bed. I wonder -- did you happen to look inside the ottoman beside the downstairs TV? It's actually a storage ottoman, and we keep the extra blanket in there. Our housekeeper typically leaves a starter roll of toilet tissue in each restroom, 1 roll of paper towels in the kitchen, a garbage bag in each can, and a small soap in each restroom for your convenience. As much as we'd love to furnish plenty for our guests to use all week, I'm afraid that past experience has shown that most guests will take every roll we leave; so we'd end up having to leave a case every week. This is only the second Summer we've rented this unit, so I really value your suggestions. Each one helps us to ensure a better stay for future guests. Although we try to think of everything our guests will need, someone reminds us occasionally of something we forgot or overlooked. I really appreciate your input. And I'm glad your family had a fun stay. I hope you can come again soon!
