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.

We had a great time and the condo was perfect.

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.

pcb condo

  • 3 of 5

The location was very close to the ocean! I liked the way the condo was set up I just think the carpet needs to go as I am OCD and no telling what is on it. should be all flooring so it can be mopped. sand was very hard to keep out of condo. very comfortable beds! only bad thing is every night there was people either arguing in parking lot or hanging out and the window didn't keep the noise withheld not sure if windows are very good. my biggest complaint is that every morning I was woke up by contractors working on another condo 2 doors down banging on things why couldn't they do that during the down season? wish condo had hot tub but pool was nice. condo just needed a little updating but overall nice.

Home is much bigger than it appears!

  • 4 of 5

This is a really cute unit and we loved staying here! Though it's only a condo, I definitely felt like I was at my second home (and we didn't have much neighbor noise unless we were in the front bedroom and they were coming up the stairs). Chris was super easy to communicate with and got back to us quickly throughout the whole process; HomeAway was also a great platform to go through, and payments were easy to make. There are just so many great things about this place: there were beach chairs, a beach umbrella, sand buckets, and more, full kitchen, washer and dryer, 2 FULL bathrooms, there's even a grill! My only complaint is that that mattress in the front bedroom feels small and a little too soft (my fiancé tosses and turns too much, therefore he disrupted my sleep every time lol). The greatest thing I think is we really were only a few minutes walk from the beach which was a huge plus. If you're not feeling like having a beach day then you can enjoy the pool! My only regret is not sitting on the back deck at night and listening to all the frogs in the lake, that literally backs up to the back stairs. We definitely will be coming back to Panama City and will come back to this unit if we don't have a bigger party with us next time. 👍🏻

We stayed here for Softball World Series and we were very happy. The condo was about a 2 minute drive to Frank Brown Park, which is where most of our games were played. The condo was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed for our week long stay. Close proximity to the pool, beach, Pier Park and restaurants. We will definitely be back next year!

Roomy, cute & convenient!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! It was walking distance from the beach, minutes away from Pier Park & had a pool. I really liked how the bedrooms were completely separated for privacy & the living room area had plenty of room for all of us to fit. The hot water heater held up well with having 7 people needing to shower one right after another. We enjoyed sitting on the back deck at night listening to all the frogs from the lake. All in all, this was a perfect place for us. We were very pleased.
