Warren & Jeannette, (by e-mail)
I am sorry for a delay in responding. I needed some time to catch up from vacation. I wanted to say we could not have been more impressed with your condo. Thank you so much for renting to us. I have been visiting Panama City Beach yearly now for 28 years and this was my favorite. Everything was perfect including the weather and water. I really enjoyed being up high and the view. I wasn't sure how I would feel about that because I am afraid of heights but I would have missed all the marine life that was amazing. We made such cherished memories that week being with my daughter, son-in-law and brand new grand baby. The beach and ocean calmed him. So thanks for all the happiness you helped provide us. Once again, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Melissa (by e-mail)

Where do I begin? From my very first email this has been an amazing experience! We rented through VRBO. We rented unit 1701 which is a 3 bedroom east end unit with a wrap around balcony. Mr. and Mrs Chace were so kind. They went above and beyond what we expected to ensure our stay was perfect. Upon our arrival it was late and we had a car full of very tired and hungry kids. The manager was friendly and nice and recommended Marcos pizza which delivered. The pizza was delicious! The pictures just can't do justice to this beautiful home. You want for nothing when you are here. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. They have a binder with information on things from restaurants to doctors and everything in between for you to reference. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance. The beds are incredibly comfortable. My 14 year old daughter slept on the sleeper sofa and said and I quote " this is heaven, so comfortable". There are beach toys and rafts, coolers and beach chairs. The pool is beautiful and was cleaned every morning while we were there. The view is spectacular. We saw dolphins, rays and numerous other sea life. There is an unobstructed view so you can see Shell Island and St. Andrews State Park and all the way down the beach. We have stayed in Panama several times and I can honestly tell you we have never stayed in a more beautiful place. We will definitely be returning to 1701. Thank you so much for sharing this piece of heaven with us!! Kelly W.

And an e-mail from another recent guest:
Thanks! We had an awesome time. Your condo is wonderful. We've stayed in many condos/hotels at PCB over the last 35 years and you were by far the best owner to deal with. Your efforts to make sure we were comfortable and that your condo had any amenity we could want for far exceeded any previous experience. Thank you for that. You were a pleasure to do business with.

The 330-degree panoramic view completely rocks: either from the unit’s 29 feet width of windows in the great room or out on the 135-foot long wrap-around balcony. From your vantage point on the 17th floor you can look east to St. Andrews State Park and Shell Island and westward at the 30-plus miles of the Emerald Coast.
The dazzling view inspired an interior redesign worthy of the view – and the name: This Condo Rocks 3 BR. The redesign features piano finish “African Oak” flooring, fun paisley area rugs, 19th century nautical maps; custom pillows; marble-topped dining table and (of course) a 55-inch Sony HDTV with over 65 high definition channels.
Our commitment is to provide you with a level of comfort, convenience and relaxation you will enjoy as much as we do when we spend our winters at Panama City Beach. We do our utmost to exceed your expectations.
This three-bedroom unit is on the eastern end of the most eastern high-rise building at Panama City Beach. This location and the high level of this unit provides what everyone describes as the very best views at Panama City Beach. The building is uniquely angled 15 degrees to the west allowing striking views of over thirty miles of Gulf of Mexico beachfront. The nearly 330 degrees of panoramic views from the balcony on this 17th floor condo are unmatched at Panama City Beach. Whether looking east to St. Andrews State Park and Shell Island or west to Destin there are no obstructions to hinder your view. Between these extremely inviting crystal White Beaches there are unlimited expanses of the Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Four sliding glass doors and two large three-paned window sets offer views from inside this spacious condo which are described as awesome, magnificent and breathtaking by all who have enjoyed them.
There are 135 feet of continuously surrounding balcony. Forty-five feet are on the Gulf-facing southern side. Another sixty-three feet of balcony continues on the eastern side facing St. Andrews State Park and the jetties at the entrance of St. Andrews Bay. This exceptional panorama continues on the northern side with views of the waters of the Grand Lagoon, the fleet at Captain Anderson’s Marina and reaches from the Hathaway Bridge to Panama City and westward to the new Beaches International Airport and beyond.
Be sure to bring your camera! Photo opportunities abound here from the sunrises to the east to sunsets in the west and everywhere in between. The picture possibilities never end. Whether on the beach, in the water or in the air there is always something worthy of remembering.
The condo is totally private with a secure digital cypher lock. We are located mid way between two fine shopping areas, 23 rd Street in Panama City to the east and Pier Park on the beach to the west. Each is only a short drive away. The Silver Sands Factory Stores Outlet Mall is less than an hour drive to the west.
Interaction with guests
We are available by phone or e-mail at all times. We are located in Virginia but have full time housekeeping at Treasure Island Resort so any need can be handled quickly.
We spend our winters at our condo so we know first hand what it takes for comfort and convenience and we have equipped and furnished the condo accordingly.
This location at the eastern end of Panama City Beach is quiet and conveniently located within walking distance to Scampy's, Patches,
Schooners and several other restaurants. Walking the beach to St Andrews State Park is a popular way to get some exercise, if that's your thing.
Other things to note
We are in our fourth year of offering our condo to guests. We have 34 very positive reviews on a highly popular home away from home rental website. Here's a review from an August 2013 guest.

We want our guests to feel at home and to treat our condo as though it was theirs. Our motto is the Golden Rule.
Jeannette and I are retired and have lived at Smith Mountain Lake near Roanoke Virginia since 2000. We lived in the Binghamton NY area for 35 years where Warren worked at GE and Jeannette had several positions including at the SUNY Binghamton Foundation.
We were both raised in Swansea Massachusetts near the ocean on Narragansett Bay and have a love for the water and fresh shellfish and seafood. Upon retiring we sampled several vacation and retirement areas in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Florida. We selected a place on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake in southwest Va. near Roanoke. We love it here but we do miss access to really fresh seafood. So when we began thinking about a place to spend winters we gave having good fresh seafood in the area a high priority. At Panama City Beach there are dozens of places to get Gulf seafood as fresh as it can be. It is a seafood lovers delight.
Our motto is the Golden Rule.
