About Steve Beckerdite

As owners we have been renting property for 17 years and have lots of experience. Our goal is to treat you as we would desire to be treated as a guest. Our success speaks for itself. We want you to enjoy yourself and have a great time. What you see in the pictures is what you can expect at the condo.

After many years of traveling to Panama City Beach and renting different condos on VRBO we decided to purchase this condo. We own this condo and another at Ocean Villa Resort VRBO (#505752), which is a two bedroom (sleeps 6) at PCB. We bought this property in 2015, but we have been renting our other VRBO (#54156) property for 17 years at Beaver Lake, in Arkansas with very favorable reviews. You can trust that the property is as advertised and that you will be treated fairly.

We are both pharmacists and know that with stressful careers everyone needs some R & R and fun. This little piece of paradise is our "let your hair down and relax" place and we know it will be yours, too.

Steve Beckerdite purchased this condo in 2015

Sad to leave! Great views and amenities

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay! The view and convenience can not be beat. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 teens. Kitchen has more than you could ever need. Also, having a washer and dryer in the unit was a life saver! It was so nice to be able to just walk down two flights of stairs and be on the beach. Also, the elevators are super slow so it was so nice to not have to use them. Security is present all the time and ensure that you feel safe while on vacation. Bikini Bob's on property was very awesome with cheap food. We were all devastated to leave on check out day.

Stunning view of the gulf and very helpful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Panama City Beach. This unit has some nice renovations and is on the 2nd floor which makes it easy to access from the stairs. The view from the balcony is stunning. We were thoroughly impressed with how helpful the owners were. They took time to answer our questions and I would not hesitate to rent from them again.

Best spring break in my 21 years of life!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has prime location. Close to everything and right on the beach. The complex felt safe and the amenities were fabulous. The pool was the perfect temperature and the hot tub was great in the evening. The beach, the room and the entire complex was clean and the neighbors were friendly. Super easy check in and check out, not too many rules but enough to make our stay enjoyable and nuance free. My friends and I were talking about booking again for next spring break before we even left. 10/10 would recommend!
