About the property

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 ; )

No doubt your kids will have great memories of staying here just as you have from your childhood. I certainly hope it's not 35 more years before you return to stay with us. Thank you for the great review. We look forward to having you back as our guests soon.

Great way to experience NW Florida from a different view.

  • 4 of 5

Great property. Dual level condo is ideal for parents that want to end the evening with a cocktail after getting the kids tucked in. It is a bit warner upstairs than downstairs but it was never uncomfortable. I didn’t see any rules preventing pool use after a certain time. While we were there, we stayed in the pool pretty late but we’re always keeping in mind that our neighbors may be sleeping. As long as we were respectful, there was no issue. We would recommend this condo. We slept six people, 16 yrs old and older.

Such a relaxing condo!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our grandkids to Florida and had the best of both worlds. The boys fished in the lake. Us girls used the pools.

The condo had everything we needed.

We also met the owners and they are extremely nice. We will stay here again.
