Jason Koertge has an awesome vacation rental business in Panama City Beach that focuses on remarkable properties right on the gulf. They range from 1 to 4 bedrooms, they’re clean, and amazing. He can be found lurking at PCBLP.com.
All signs are pointing to a great tourism season in Panama City Beach. Last year we had record breaking numbers and we expect much the same for the 2012 tourism season.
Many of our rental condos at PCBLP are booked up all summer already and we’re hearing much the same from our industry partners.
