About Steve Layton

We have owned this property for several years and have put most of the rental income back into it as improvements. Almost everything is new and very comfortable. We are located in the front of the complex closest to the beach in the center of Panama City Beach....

Steve Layton purchased this condo in 2007

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful townhouse in Panama City Beach. The gated complex is large with plenty of space for leisurely and safe walking as well as attractive and well-manicured grounds, 11 pools, several shuffleboard courts, and a mini-golf course. A lovely and relaxing courtyard with pool is right off the back deck of the unit. The short walk to the beach was negligible since we didn't have to lug chairs with us to relax at the pool located on the beach. The unit itself was clean, comfortable, convenient, and appealing to the eye. The owners are easy to reach if needed and congenial, generous, and likable. We have stayed in 8-10 different condo complexes in PCB over the years, but have never enjoyed a vacation more than this one; we hope to return to vacation here again next Fall.

We had an amazing time!!!! Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Panama City Beach, and this property is definitely top notch! Beautiful condo with a nice patio and huge pool right in the back yard! Condo was the perfect size, nicely decorated, very clean, and the kitchen was super accommodating where we did not have to eat out every night! Advertised is 2 bathrooms, but actually it was 2 and 1/2 baths which was a great surprise!! It was a super close walk to the beach, and Gulf Highlands actually has a pool and restaurant on the beachside for only Gulf Highland guests and owners, where drinks and very good food can be bought which was awesome! Mr. Steve and his wife were easy to communicate with, and all of the instructions to get to the condo and in the condo were super easy. Definitely will be staying here again next time my family and I want to go to Panama City Beach! Thank y'all for a great experience and thanks for having us in your beautiful condo!

It felt just like home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the wee hours of the morning and had to call, but Steve's wife answered with a smile. They took care of us and all was well. The home was clean, beautiful and had plenty of room. Stairs to upstairs are a little steep, but were managable. It was a short walk to the beach and close to several restaurants and stores. We had great service and meal at Salt Walter Grill (very close). We will be back with friends next time.
