Picture perfect    Jul 27, 2019

The condo is as pictured. Super clean and fully stocked with everything you could need. The owners are very responsive and easy to work with. The view is amazing and just steps away from the beach. Being able to have coffee on the balcony in the mornings and watching the waves was a must when looking for a place. This is definitely our go to place from now on when vacationing in PCB.

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Hello Kristy! Chatt and I greatly appreciate your wonderful review and are glad that you feel our condo is to be your "go to place" in PCB. You are welcome back any time. We also enjoy having our coffee on the balcony! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Best wishes to you and your family, Pete and Chatt


No worries!    Jun 01, 2019

Had a great experience. Pete and Chatt are very helpful and responsive. We plan to stay again. Clean, functional, beautiful, and welcoming.

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

John, Thank you for the review! It is quite nice and we appreciate your time and effort to send it. You are most welcome again anytime, and we are looking forward to seeing you again. Best wishes, Pete and Chatt

Stephanie Carr

Perfect!    May 25, 2019

We loved our time spent in beautiful Florida at this wonderful condo. Zero complaints. White sand beach is literally STEPS from the front door of the condo. Loved being so close to the beach and parking. Thanks for the affordable week long vacay in sunny Florida!!

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Hello Stephanie! Thank you for the review of our condo. It makes us happy to see your description and that you loved your time at our condo. You are welcome back anytime. We also appreciate your taking the time to write the review, we do know how busy everyone is these days. Best regards, Chatt and Pete

Jan and David

Fantastic unit to stay at Pinnacle Port    May 11, 2019

We are so thrilled to write this review. The owners went far and above all our expectations in our stay at their condo. They have it fully stocked, and well maintained. The King mattress was wonderfully comfortable. I slept unitl 7:30 each day (which I never do at home, nor at the beach). In fact, I asked them what mattress it is, because I want to get one for our home. The condo owners could not have been any nicer~ Highly recommend staying at this condo.

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Hello Jan and David, Thank you for taking the time and effort to write a review for us. We certainly do appreciate your kind words and explanation of how you enjoyed the condo. Chatt and I put in a lot of effort to make the condo be a home away from home. We are also happy to hear you were able to relax and sleep well! We put in a lot of time deciding on which mattresses to buy and are pleased to hear that our decisions were good ones. Best regards to you both! Pete and Chatt

Richelle Thompson

Wonderful place to stay!    Mar 30, 2019

This is a great place to stay. My family owns another condo in the community but we had a really large group so we needed a second condo. This is the one we'd choose every time we need two! It was clean, convenient, nicely appointed, with just the right amount of personal touches to make it feel truly welcoming and hospitable.

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Thanks very much for spending time to send the review and for your stay with us. We hope you may be able to stay again in the future. Chatt and I work hard to keep the condo in "tip-top" shape so it will be relaxing and comfortable for everyone. Best regards, Pete and Chatt

Maureen and Dan

Perfect    Mar 16, 2019

This is the third time my husband and I stayed in this condo. Once again, we were so pleased with how clean everything was and how fully stocked this unit is. Having coffee on the deck, listening to the waves, enjoying the beauty of the beach, it just does not get any better. We always check this unit first when we are able to come to Fla. and we are always happy. Thanks again Pete and Chatt.

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Hello Maureen and Dan. As always, many thanks for such a nice review. Others will be able to see how much you enjoy the condo and beach and your kind words make us happy. We strive to have the condo be a home away from home. Take care, you are welcome back any time! Pete and Chatt

Judy & Family

5 Stars PLUS    Dec 23, 2018

Spotless; super comfortable (mattresses and pillows and the sound of the Gulf = perfect sleeping),;parking (handicapped and regular) right outside the ground level door;the beach just around corner and right off the balcony; the fully furnished kitchen spotless ; coffee - brewer and Keurig; books; easy directions for TV, DVD, etc.; of particular interest the owner's beautiful nature photography on the walls with interesting descriptions below; everything is simply tasteful and first class. Bravo, Pete and Chatt, your condo is a special treat. Thank you.

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Dear Judy and family, thank you so very much for the wonderful words about our condo. What you have described is what we aim to achieve for all our guests. Chatt and I are thrilled you had such a relaxing, enjoyable stay and you are, of course, welcome back anytime. Sun, Surf and Sand awaits your next visit.

All You Could Ask For, And More!    Sep 01, 2018

Thank you Pete and Chatt for sharing your wonderful condo with us! Your pictures and descriptions of the unit prepared us perfectly for our stay there. We found everything we could possibly want or need on the inside, and everything your pictures promised on the outside. We are older and people of size, so we have some mobility issues, but we were still able to enjoy some great beachtime every day because of the short walk from your front door. We also loved sitting on the roomy balcony and reading a few books from your collection. We swam in the pool right across the parking lot and enjoyed that as well. Driving in and out of the complex was fun too. We got to read all the unique names that residents gave their stand alone houses with the cute signs hanging on the picket fences. Shopping and restaurants were close by for convenience, but we were happily tucked away from all the hustle and bustle, inside the gated complex. Our whole group, and a few relatives who visited us at the condo, also enjoyed all of the amenities and commented on what a great vacation spot we had. I hope our next trip to PCB falls on dates that your condo is available. We would love to stay there again. Thanks again for sharing your delightful piece of paradise with us.

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Hi Cindy! A million thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. Chatt and I are very happy to hear that you found our condo to your liking and were able to enjoy the beach, the pool, the location and the condo. Our goal is to provide exactly what you described in your review. It is great to hear that the group with you and the relatives who visited also enjoyed, as you say, our "delightful piece of paradise". We look forward to your next trip to PCB, of course, you are most welcome anytime. Warmest regards, Chatt and Pete


Danny & lorna    Aug 19, 2018

Wonderful condo & one that we would highly recommend! When making reservations you really do not know what to expect of the accommodations!! We were delighted with ours! Everything was spotless clean and so much thought went into the decorating down to all that one could wish for in the kitchen!! There were a good variety of games, puzzles, CD & books!! Wonderful information folder that had been put together! Our bedroom which had a king size bed was very comfortable the mattress & pillows were very high standered !! Our Bathroom was excellent also!! The second bedroom which had the twin beds our children had those and they said that they slept well!! We counted the steps from our front door to the walk way to the beach and it was 40 and then to the about 70 yards to the ocean!! Yes, we counted as we could not believe how close we were!! Thank you Pete & Chatt!! We had a wonderful time and we will be back to your beautiful condo!!

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Dear Danny and Lorna, a million thanks for taking the time and effort to send your review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and that your family found the accommodations "spotless clean" and that they slept well. We work quite hard (as does the cleaning crew) to keep the condo as one would keep their home, clean, neat, and relaxing. A home away from home on the beach is our goal! We have had folks ask how close the water is, so your description is excellent, many thanks. We look forward to your being able to stay again! Warmest regards, Chatt and Pete

Ben L. and family

Wonderful week    Aug 04, 2018

We love this place. Everything we need is provided in the condo and it is ideally located to take advantage of the beautiful beach and the Gulf. The owners were great to work with.

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Ben, thank you very much for your review. We appreciate your taking the time to wirte a review, and we are looking forward to your stay next year.

Stacey S & family

Best condo in Carillion Beach!!!    Aug 04, 2018

This condo was truly perfect and had everything you could want (and a few things we'd forgotten to pack!). The kitchen had everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and comfortable. It opens up to a lovely view of the beach where we got the pleasure to see dolphins swim by one morning. There are multiple pools on-site for the kids and they are all great sizes. The beach is only a 30 second walk from the condo. It was a perfect week! Thank you, Peter & Chatt for providing such a lovely condo for our family and making our vacation wonderful! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!

Peter and Charita Watkinson's reply:

Hello Stacy! Thank you so very much for the wonderful review! (I must tell you the condo where you and your family stayed is actually at Pinnacle Port!). Chatt and I are always thrilled to hear from folks who have stayed at the condo, it takes time and effort to write a review, and we are thankful that you took that time and effort. Many thanks. We are also happy that you and your family enjoyed such a great stay. As we have said in the past, our goal is to have the condo be a home away from home, and endevour to have it be a place that is clean, relaxing and a get away from the normal hustle and bustle of the workday.
