About Chris Barnes

We began visiting PCB in 2001 when my husband's parents began wintering here. We fell in love with the gulf and the people of Panama City Beach. We have vacationed here several times a year since. We have stayed in condos all over the beach and found many things that we love about renting In PCB, and a few things that we don't. We spent several years searching for just the right property that had all of the things that we enjoyed when vacationing here.

Chris Barnes purchased this condo in 2016

Why Chris Barnes chose El Centro Beach

The things that led us to choose this property include the fact that you are literally steps to the beach, yet you are removed from the chaos of the high rises. Also, you can drive up to your unit and navigating through a parking garage and hauling groceries a half mile back to your room. We also love the spaciousness of this two bed/two bath unit, and the extra "beds" in the two sofas allows for our kids and grandkids to visit us. And, we love the Lullwater Lake and its turtles, water lilies, beautiful sunrises and frog chorus at night.

What makes this condo unique

Overlooks lovely Lullwater Lake, and also just steps to the Gulf of Mexico. Close to the Pier Park, yet on quieter west end of Front Beach Road.

Great location, family friendly, and nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. It was very family friendly. Close to all the major shops and restaurants but far enough from the loud front beach traffic.

Great location, close to everything, but not to close, so your not dealing with noise!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is roomy and clean. Traveled with 5 girls, 2 bathrooms was very helpful. Beds are comfy. A very short walk to the beach, like 1-2 minutes. We even walked to pier park, took us 10 minutes, we are fast walkers. Prefect location.

This was our first trip to pcb, however we travel alot and always rent condos, cabins, houses etc, at least 3 times a year. The only thing I didn't like about this one. Was we had to supply toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, etc. Who wants to go shopping for those things on vacation? But other then that small detail, and it wasn't a big deal, the condo was great, the neighbors were great, quiet, and the pool was refreshing and clean. I would totally stay again.

The condo is close to all the things we wanted to do. It was well kept and very clean, it was also easily accessible and parking was never an issue. I would most definitely stay here again.
