About the Owner

Growing up, our family had special moments at the beaches in Florida. With that love of the ocean and beach, we were blessed to be able to purchase this ocean front condo in 2013 after visiting many other condos. What struck about this condo is the convenient location to beach, attractions, restaurants, shopping, golf, fishing, or just laying out at the beach. We welcome you to discover for yourself Panama City Beach while staying at our condo. We look forward to hearing from you via email, text, or call.

Not impressed

  • 1 of 5

My stay at Top of the Gulf- I must say that the room is by far the worst room I have ever stayed in. The floors are filthy, the bathroom calling is falling down and has mold on it, the bed comforter has stains on it, the bed skirt has many bleach stains, the vent in the bathroom was completely covered in dust, and some of the blinds are missing making it difficult to sleep. After looking at the so called cleaning equipment left in the room, I'm not surprised that the floors are nasty.

Knowing that part of the fee to stay in your unit is a cleaning fee makes me upset due to the fact that it was NOT clean when we arrived.

I emailed the owners, but didn't get a response back.

Trying to Contact Owner

  • 3 of 5

I've been trying to contact the owner or manager of this unit for several days. Emails, phone calls and text messages have not been responded to. I would LOVE to write a legitimate review, if I'm able to stay here in June. Or should I just go through the booking process and hope it goes through?

Close to many attractions, Walmart, Pineapple Willies, Club LaVela, Spinnaker, Shrimp City.. (Coupons on first floor mail room) Owner was very considerate & easy to contact. Can't wait to go back!

Great Deal!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 8yr old & 11yr old five nights. For the price & location, this is a steal! It is somewhat older & outdated, but it smelled like home, it was clean, efficient, and comfortable (esp the bed). The view is amazing. It is within walking distance to WalMart, plenty of good restaurants, shopping, attractions, Shrimp City (seafood market), Club LaVela & Spinnaker. On the first floor in the mail room are tons of coupons! The owner was very friendly, helpful, & easy to contact. There was plenty of room for parking. The pool was nice and the poolside restaurant was awesome! (Loved the banana daqueries!) We were very happy with our stay. We even stayed an extra night. Can't wait to go back!

Great View

  • 4 of 5

This was my girlfriend and I first get away so we didn't need anything big, this condo was the perfect size for just us too. View was amazing waking up and just looking outside to the beach/ocean. Great location in the middle of all the restaurants. I would recommend this condo to anybody that's looking for a vacation spot. I look forward to hopefully coming back to this spot in the futures to come.
