About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

***No alcohol on the beach during March has turned away the spring break crowds***

***Welcome back families and enjoy our beautiful beaches during this time***

***Please, add cleaning fee $85 and hotel tax 13%***

*****Weekly Saturday to Saturday only*****

We don't use the online booking for check out as there is a fee imposed on the traveler..

Our methods of payment are safe and secure with our credit card providers accessed through the original vrbo, saving you from these added fees.

Please note: Our rates are not negotiable, as we are competitively priced and these email requests will not be answered.

Our condo is a 'REAL BY OWNER', truly owner managed, unlike many of the others that are managed by a rental management company, and have no idea what their unit looks like.

We also vacation in our condo, making sure that everything is well taken care of, updated, comfortable, fully equipped and clean for our guests.

*****Daily Beach Chair Service is now included with your stay, which includes two beach lounge chairs with cushions and the umbrella reserved for you at the beachfront---a savings of over $200*****April thru Oct.

About Luci and Don

We've been vacationing in FL for the past 45 years, experiencing all the beautiful beaches and visiting family further south. But our first visit to Panama City Beach in 2006 just blew us away. The sparkling, silky white sand and the emerald green waters, much like the Caribbean, sold us.

Luci and Don purchased this condo in 2006

Why Luci and Don chose Panama City Beach Area

After years of managing real estate and yearly rentals; its an absolute pleasure to deal with weekly vacationers who just want to have fun at the beach.

What makes this condo unique

My husband, Don and I, actually own this condo. Its such a benefit to rent from an owner instead of the rental management companies, who are so busy handling up to 100 condos at a time, that the personal touch is lost. They also charge many extra fees, damage waivers, insurance, etc., that can increase the cost. When you rent with us, we give you exactly what the rental will be so there aren't any surprises, along with a contract to insure your satisfaction.

We stay in our condo throughout the year and will guarantee that everything is updated to help make your vacation fun, carefree and comfortable. You won't find a cleaner unit anywhere on the beach.

Customer satisfaction is our goal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you! We did have a very nice trip. I have been staying at the Summit now for 20+ years and must say your room by far is the nicest I have seen! I love the Summit, the location, pools, etc.

My mother was staying at the Summit (different room) the week prior to when we were to arrive. Knowing this, we went down a couple days early and stayed in her room for the two days prior to our scheduled check in date. The room was ok, nothing special or at least let me say my son and his friend (both 13) were not impressed. However, when we checked into your room, both boys said “Sweet” this room is awesome! I think this speaks volumes about your place, for teenage boys to notice and care speaks volumes as far as I am considered!



Thanks again, looking forward to our next trip!

What an awesome vacation! Luci was wonderful to work with. The condo was great! My daugher loved the Bunks with the Spongebob and the Nemos! She made lots of friends the week we were there. The view was awesome from the condo. We met a couple different families while we were there and we had the nicest condo of all!!! Plan on coming down again next year the same time.......unless I save up enough money we may come back between now and Christimas. We have been coming to Panama City for the past 7 years and this was certainly the best condo we have stayed in so far. We will rent from Luci from now on. Thanks again for everything - looking forward to coming back again really soon.

Girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

I could't have asked for a better condo. The condo had everything we needed. The kitchen was stocked and bathroom had plenty of towels. Having a half bath was great with 2 girls getting ready every night. The tiki bar was great, awesome drinks. Having the beach chairs everyday was a huge plus. Even the staff at The Summit were great. Luci was great to work with and always responded in a timely manner.

Vacation for the Memory Books.....

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful week getting away from it all at this wonderful condo! The 8th floor was perfect for the beautiful sunsets and coffee in the morning. It was so central to many restaurants and grocery stores. Luci was absolutely wonderful and kind and we couldn't have asked for more from her! I wouldn't hesitate to book this condo for our next vacation! Thanks again Luci!

Great vacation propertt

  • 5 of 5

Thia condo is a great place to stay for kids and adults. The room was great and the beach was also. The beaxh chair rental that comes with the condo was hassle free and a great amenity for our stay. The summit is also very close to all attractions you could ask for....great price also.

Great Condo with awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and also our first time staying at the Summit. The condo was very nice, clean, and had plenty of room for our family of 5. The view is amazing and we had everything we needed for our stay. We would definitely stay here again!!

BEST YET!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Summit since 1994, and have tried many vrbo owners. I can say hands down, this condo was the best we have EVER stayed in. the kitchen was stocked with the "items" you might forgot. The bedroom has a bed that I actually slept good in. The tile floors were a plus. the condo is nicely put together and made us feel like we were at home.

Luci was always an email away on what needed to be done and how to close up when we left.THE view is breath taking from the 8th floor. We are already trying to rent the condo again within a few months.

GREAT JOB LUCI!

A low floor, is enough to feel comfortable, and high enough for the spectacular views and peace and quiet. Our condo features high quality, extra large, thick, plush towels, unlike what the management/rental companies use. We also have available for your use an ironing board with iron, hair dryer in the master bathroom, full length mirror, clock radio/alarm, vacuum cleaner, mop/broom, hangers in the closet, extra blankets, private DVD (PG) collection (for variety of ages), games/books/magazines/cards, coffee filters, spices, dishtowels, toilet paper (one day), all you need to bring are your own beach towels and lots of sunscreen.
