Adjacent to Pinnacle Port to the West is a bird sanctuary where you can find several different types of birds, even some that are on the endangered list.

Hated To Leave
We are so glad to have found the Jays wonderful condo. After having rented a lot of great condos from a lot of nice people I have to say this one is the best equipped I've ever seen. And the Jays are the the most generous owners ever. Everything has been thought of including welcome snacks and drinks. The large and small appliances put ours to shame. The furnishings are extremely nice and comfortable. We love the location. It was nice to have the gulf, the lake, and the wildlife refuge to enjoy with plenty of room for all. Beautiful views in every direction. It was very hard to leave. Can't wait to come back.
This was my favorite condo that I had ever stayed in at Pinnacle Port. It was very modern, updated, and clean with all the Comforts of home and more! Joyce was so easy to get in touch with from the time we booked until the time we left. Cannot wait to come back and stay here again!
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!!!
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.
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 definitely recommend this property.
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.
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 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!
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'.
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
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this condo beachfront?
Our condo is as close to the beach as you can get. If you drop something off the balcony, it falls in the sand. Once you get off the elevator, it is about 40 steps to the beach and just the right amount of steps to the water.
What makes this condo special?
We pride ourselves in being great hosts and provide lots of extras that most condos do not include. Ours is a second home which we choose to share with others as paradise is something everyone should experience at least once. Quite a few of our guests are repeat guests who return year after year; some guests stay with us several times a year.
Why have you chosen a Hawaiian theme for your condo rather than a Florida beach theme?
We have visited Hawaii several times over the years and we feel as if we have experienced a little bit of heaven on earth there. We want our guests to feel as if they have experienced a small piece of what Hawaii is about without incurring the cost and time of traveling there.
Awesome in every way !!!!
There are not enough words to describe how perfect this place was. The location was great for all activities around the area. I know the owners take great pride in the comfort of their guests. We will be back !!!! Thank you, The Thompson Family

Thanks for taking time from your busy schedule to write a review. We loved having you and family stay with us and welcome your family anytime. We are blessed to have such great guests.
excellent hosts and condo
First of all upon entering the condo I was almost afraid to touch anything for fear of ruining perfection. The place was immaculate. After a long drive it was a joy to find that every imaginable thing you might need was already there. Who makes sure there are sodas and water for you in the fridge? The bed was more comfortable than our own. Excellent appliances and every imaginable cooking utensil and aid that you can imagine,teamed with top of the line dishes and silverware. Did I mention how clean everything was? This condo is on the 4th floor with a nice elevator which was never congested. The beach was a walk from the elevator around the corner of the building and you are there. Strongly recommend this condo, although reluctant to because I may find trouble booking it in the future...……….

Thanks Jeff for taking time from your busy schedule to post such a great review. Our cleaning lady is the best on the beach and does a great job. We do our best to spoil our guests by treating them the same way we want to be treated. Many become part of our extended family who come year after year. We would love to have you return any time; it is a pleasure to have guests who love our condo as much as we do.
