Joyce & Jimmy,
This was our first time using VRBO and first time at Pinnacle Point. Your condo exceeded our expectations! If we were any closer to the water, we would have been in it! Condo was exceptionally clean and organized. Y'all went above and beyond to stock with starter food, drinks, snacks, etc. everything was updated and like new. Thank you again! Would definitely recommend this condo and will be back!
We have had the pleasure to stay at Joyce and Jimmy's Place 3 times now! We will begin planning our 2018 Panama City Beach vacation in November and we are planning on staying for a 4th time! Yes 4 times that is how awesome this place is!!! Pinnacle Port by far is our favorite place to stay! We have gone in May, June and July and never is it crazy busy! This past 4th of July when Pinnacle Port and Panama City Beach broke records for the most guests ever we still had plenty of room on the beach and were still able to swim in the pools no problem at all. Pinnacle Port is the best kept secret ever!! The grounds are beautiful and always kept up. The Pools are always clean and perfect! And the ocean is ALWAYS beautiful!! Very family friendly place where you do not have to worry about the parties and loudness!! You are mostly with other families and couples. So if you are looking for party place this is not your place. Not that you can't and don't have fun but you can have it without dealing with a bunch of unruly and drunk people. It is so nice to be able to go somewhere and let your kids run around for the most part and you do not have to worry. And with the 24 hour security there is even more piece of mind. The security people are awesome so friendly and nice to talk with. Even the wild cats at the check in gates. We always look forward to seeing them every year! Now to the condo!! The place is immaculate and there is never a stone left unturned. The minute you walk in the owners welcome you with a treat basket and cold refreshments in the fridge -- which if you drive in like we do it is always such a nice and welcoming gesture! The furniture is nice, newer and very comfy! Bed is very comfortable as well! They are always adding and replacing stuff so everything is in tip top shape. They go above and beyond anyone that I have ever rented from. They have a nice front loader washer and dryer in the unit which is always a plus especially with kids! They have every appliance, dish, utensil you will ever need and it is not cheap stuff they definitely take pride in their condo and want you to have the best!! They provide movies, DVD's, cable, wireless internet! Nice thick towels in the bathroom even starter soap, shampoo, conditioner, toiletries etc. When I say nothing is overlooked I really mean nothing is overlooked!! And Joyce is so wonderful to speak with! She makes everything so easy and simple!! My family and I have been so lucky to have found them and found their condo! We even get Christmas cards from them they have been added to our family collection of cards! We are so GRATEFUL to them for sharing their piece of paradise with us!! We were just there for a week July 1st-July 8th, 2017 and already can't wait to go back! Highly highly recommend!! Thanks Joyce and Jim for your wonderful hospitality and for ALWAYS going above and beyond!!!
As you can see from their review, the Swanson's have become extended family who love our condo as much as we do. We are always looking for ways to improve our condo so that our guests will feel special and as if they have found a place that reminds them of home. Thanks Cori and family; you are always welcome at our condo.
Thank you for sharing your paradise with us!! This place brings me peace! Happy 4th to you and Jimmy!! — feeling grateful at Pinnacle Port Resort.
Another great June vacation. Thanks Joyce , for the great hospitality. Always makes it hard to leave when the owners make it feel like home.
Pinnacle Port is a great place if you don't like the hustle and bustle of Thomas Drive/Pier Park area. Pier Park is a 10-minute drive. Staying in a gated community makes us feel safe and we don't worry about our car getting broken into or stolen. Carillon Beach is a great neighborhood to walk to for shopping, Groovin on the Green, Sunday Chapel services, dining and shopping. We love the family atmosphere and closeness to the bird sanctuary and Camp Helen's State Park.
Overall a great experience, the condo is clean ( very important ) Location is good. It is located close to tourist attractions but far enough away to not be over crowded. Restaurants are all with in a 5-10 minute drive along with the Pier and Shopping. The condo comes equipped with all the necessary equipment to prepare all meals. Ample space for two people with a good layout of the unit. The little extras that Joyce provided was very nice. The snack basket and the all the detergents for the machines. The complex sits in a gated community surrounded by very nice homes. Security was never an issue , and it seems everything was very well taken care of at Pinnacle Port. The beach was very nice as no para sailors or jet skiers to worry about.Overall a good stay I would recommend.
WONDERFUL CONDO! FELT LIKE HOME... NICELY FURNISHED HAD EVERYTHING YOU COULD NEED WOULD STAY AGAIN! REALLY ENJOYED THE QUIET AREA AS WELL! YET CLOSE TO EVERYTHING
We stayed three nights in September to celebrate a birthday. We've used this unit before, and we are on the list to come down again next September. It will be a regular stop. You've probably read all the other 5 star reviews. We say 'amen' to all of the positive comments. We have never been disappointed, and know we won't be next year either. If you can get in - you too will have a wonderful time. The owners are delightful to work with to make your visit 'the best'.
We stayed three nights in September at this VERY nice condo. We have stayed at Pinnacle Port many times throughout the years but never in this particular condo. It far exceeded any that we have ever stayed in! Both the bed and couch mattresses were of outstanding quality. The kitchen was very well stocked which made cooking a breeze, although we ate out mostly! Joyce has thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We definitely plan to stay here again!
Condo was nice and clean, and well kept ,close to the beach, with a beautiful view. Has almost anything you could need. Beaches were not crowded, away from the ruckus but everything is just a short drive away.
We stayed at Joyce & Jay's condo over the 4th of July weekend. The condo was very clean and beautiful. The decor is awesome. Our grandsons said the sofa bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed our time there and will rent this condo again.
We rented this condo with two adults and two teenagers. A basket full of goodies greeted us along with this immaculately clean, well maintained, beautiful condo with great detail in decorating along with a tropical look. The view was breath taking. No need to buy groceries in advance of your arrival, there were a couple well stocked grocery stores very close. The water was crystal clear and warm, beach was clean and not crowded at all. Downtown shopping is a must with dozens of new stores just opening up. Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville was very good and worth the short trip. We caught some of the elusive white crab seen only at night on the beach and set them free after examination. The pools were very clean and well maintained. Joyce provided great customer service with hand written notes and a phone call to see if everything was good. This condo exceeded our expections and I would defintely recommend this property.
My family and I were looking for a family friendly vacation spot with beach front access and this condo was exactly what we were looking for! We celebrated a graduation and a birthday here and it was perfect for both! The view was unexplainable and the beach was clean and water was warm. The condo had EVERYTHING we could possibly need while on vacation from a pizza stone to extra blankets. The owners really do treat this condo like their home. Everything was perfect and blew us away. Would be more than happy to go back! Loved the atmosphere. We even got to see dolphins in the early mornings (: Highly recommend!! Thanks Joyce and Jim for your hospitality and for going above and beyond what we expected!!!
It's so nice to return to a vacation spot that you already know you will love. Thanks again for sharing your lovely vacation home. Private, peaceful, comfortable. A fabulous beach. We'll be back!
We have had the pleasure to stay at Joyce and Jimmy's Place 2 times now! We are now planning our 2015 Panama City Beach vacation and are planning on staying for a 3rd time! Pinnacle Port by far is our favorite place to stay! It is never crowded but does have enough people to make it feel like you are not alone! We have gone in May, June and July and never is it crazy busy! It is the best kept secret!! The grounds are beautiful and always kept up. Pool is always clean and perfect! And the ocean is ALWAYS beautiful!! Very family friendly place where you do not have to worry about the parties and loudness!! Now to the condo!!

We will be booking for 2015 in the next few weeks! Can't wait to go back! Highly highly recommend!! Thanks Joyce and Jim for your wonderful hospitality and for ALWAYS going above and beyond!!!
This isn't a beach rental. It is the Jay's second home. You know that when you enter an find it just a clean as yours would be on a good day; when you find the welcome basket of snacks, showing a friendly welcome; when you sleep in a very, very comfortable bed (not a cheap 'rental' one); when you rest in the leather recliner and look out at the beach and gulf. They have gone out of their way to make a guest feel welcome. It does indeed reflect that the Jay's really use this as their second home, not as just a source of income.We thank the Jay's for allowing us to use their second home. We will be back!
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The condo had everything you would need. The condo was cozy and very clean with a well equip kitchen. Parking was excellent with only a short walk to the beach from the room. Joyce and Jimmy were excellent to work with and made everything easy for us. We're already talking about going back next summer. Thankyou so much.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this condo. A quiet beach is want we wanted and that's what we got. Unfortunately we hit a patch of cool cloudy weather ... but considering the Michigan winter we came from we were ok with that. We walked on the beach...golfed...and just enjoyed our quiet time together. We were away from the hussle and bussle of Panama City but close enough to explore it when we wanted. This condo was beautiful and homey....it felt like "our place"! Thank you so much for sharing and we've told lots of our friends about this beautiful place!
This condo is well equipped for anything you may need. The owners have decorated it to feel like a home away from home for any guests who arrive. The kitchen has anything you may need to fix a meal inside and if it is raining- no problems as there are games and movies for you to enjoy. The bedroom is comfortable and has plenty of storage space for your things. The sofa sleeper sleeps comfortably. The resort is very nice with two pools for your enjoyment. And the best of all- the beach!! Your view is fantastic from the balcony and is just a few feet away from the beach. We loved the small crowds and quick access to the waters. You are not far from attractions and don't have to contend with the traffic for short trips. This was our second visit and plan to return again someday.
We stayed in Joyce's condo last year and loved it so much we came back this year..... and I am ready go back again (hopefully this fall). . The condo is lovely, it is very comfortable, clean, and has so many extras. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, more than I even have in my kitchen at home. The bed and sleeper sofa are both very comfortable. I can't say enough about how wonderful the condo is and renting from Joyce was a pleasure. The location is in a quieter part of PCB, it is very private and in a secure area. In prior years we have stayed at other very large condo's on the beach that were nice, but they did not have that comfortable personal touch like Joyce's condo and I never felt as safe and comfortable at the other condos.
