Thomas Drive Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Gulf Crest, Panama City Beach, Florida. Located in the exclusive, less congested, Thomas Drive area, directly on the pristine Gulf of Mexico.

'Custom' designed and professionally decorated, GULF FRONT condominium with spectacular views and breathtaking sunsets. The one and only condominium in Gulf Crest with a garden tub in the master bath, larger dining area, larger secondary bedroom, and the bunk beds built in the third bedroom (along with twin beds) instead of being located in a closet in the dining area.

Condominium has three bedrooms, two baths, king-size beds in two bedrooms, and twin beds PLUS built-in extra-long bunk beds in the third bedroom. The condominium sleeps eight in bedrooms in addition to a sleeper sofa. Sleeps eight to ten.

This Gulf Crest, 17th floor, West side condominium allows for the ultimate vacation experience. The condominium is 1801 square feet with a 750-square-foot, wrap around balcony. From this vantage point, you can view the sunsets with hues of orange and purple as a nightly event. You can see miles down the beach at the blue-green waters and sugar-white sand. You must see the views for yourself as they are indescribable and a camera does not do them justice.

The living room and dining room are all furnished with custom 'Capri' furniture and a large screen television. You will find a palm theme in the master bedroom along with Tommy Bahama furniture, a king-size bed, and a 30-inch LCD TV wall mounted. The master bath has the only garden tub in Gulf Crest. The second bedroom has a Key West parrot theme, a king-size bed, and a LCD TV. The third bedroom is the surfers room.

There are two twin beds AND built-in, extra-long bunk beds. We did not want to have our special guests sleep in bunk beds in a closet in the living area. This condominium has a redesigned master bath to allow for the garden tub. A redesigned dining area to allow more space for the table area.

A redesigned second bedroom to allow space for a king-size bed, and a redesigned room to allow room to build in the bunk beds. It was also redesigned to allow for doors to be installed providing privacy to the secondary bedrooms from the living areas. Laundry room with washer and dryer.

Amenities include two pools (one heated), a separate kiddy pool, two outdoor heated spas, fitness room, game room, owners' lounge with billiard table, two gazebos, free covered parking, free unlimited local calls, cable with HBO, dune walk-over that accommodates the handicap, WIRELESS INTERNET (this unit), and three high-speed elevators.

Beach activities on site or nearby include jet skiing, parasailing, banana boat rides, and volleyball.

Within walking distance is Spinnakers, Hammerhead Freds, bumper boats, go carts, Emerald Falls Water Park, miniature golf, amusement park, and scooter rentals.

This condominium was not furnished to be a rental unit, but rather, it was intended to be a home and was furnished and designed accordingly down to the cabinet knobs. There is premium quality dishware and crystal along with everyday china and glasses. (Definitely NOT a rental package condominium.)

The condominium has a tile floor with area rugs and a kitchen with beautiful granite countertops. Custom etched glass double doors have been installed to separate the secondary bedrooms from the living area. This condominium is NOT your norm.

Only steps to the world's most beautiful beaches, Gulf Crest provides the relaxation you deserve. Our unit provides the views you have seen on the 'Life of the Rich and Famous.' These accommodations will make you feel like a queen and king. You will not be disappointed!

Please call for monthly rates. Rentals with a five-day minimum will be considered. Rates include cleaning, tax, broadband internet, and local calls.

Note: Until confirmed, rates are subject to change without notice.

This is a NO SMOKING/NO PETS Condominium!

You are a telephone call away from your ULTIMATE VACATION.

About Dayson Flory

My husband and I are the original owners of our unit at Gulf Crest. We purchased Gulf Crest when we walked on the construction site and saw the fabulous view. My husband and I had been looking for a condo and once we saw the floor plan, the view, and the location of Gulf Crest we knew we had found our second home. Not only is there direct Gulf view but a fabulous view for miles down the beach out the wall of side windows.

Why Dayson Flory chose Panama City Beach

My husband and I chose to purchase a condo at Gulf Crest so that we would be located at the less conjested area of the beach. Gulf Crest is within walking distance to dining, dancing, and family activities. The less conjested Thomas Drive location allows access to resturants and shopping without sitting in the Front Beach traffic. Gulf Crest is a wonderful place for a fabulous vacation.

What makes this condo unique

View - View - View. Walking distance to dining, dancing, and activies. Wonderful owners lounge with pool table.

Great Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was AWESOME!! It was clean, ready for us, and made us feel at home. We had such a wonderful time and were so very comfortable!! We will attempt to stay here each year as the condo was perfect!! It is close to everything!!

The three bedrooms were perfect, and being able to be in the kitchen and look at the gorgeous scenery was over the top!! Actually being anywhere in the condo and looking out the beautiful windows, and of course the fabulous wrap around balcony, just made you feel like you never wanted to leave! If we had any questions, the owner's responded back to us in minutes, but there weren't many questions, everything was fabulous!!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!!

Awesome Condo - beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This condo was awesome... very, very nice. We had two families with teenagers and there was plenty of room and it was fully equipped from front to back. We loved the twin and bunk bed setup with two King bedrooms! The wrap around windows were awesome too because you could cook or watch TV and still see the ocean. We spent the early hours on the balcony to watch the dolphins and that was a treat. It didn't matter what time of day it was... the balcony the best place to be if you aren't on the beach or in the water. There is lots to do in Panama city as well with several places within walking distance. All in all - it was an awesome condo and a great vacation! Thank you!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I decided to take my Mom on a road trip to celebrate her 84th Birthday, it was a total of 9 ladies, ranging from 6 - 84 years old! We had a fantastic time, from the moment we entered the condo we noticed it was beautifully decorated and clean, the only thing I saw was the rugs in each room and in the master bathroom were not vacuumed but it was not a big deal. The owners had a vacuum cleaner which we used a couple of times during the week. We woke up each morning with the smell of coffee brewing, which I made for the adults, and to the amazing views from the 17th floor . My teenage daughters and nieces had a grand time daily at the beach and the pool and they also crossed the street to go to the car track which was very convenient and close by. My mother walks a bit slower, so we took her to the beach only once and to the pool, but she enjoyed her trips to the Wal-Mart and the shops close by. My sisters, niece and daughters all used the gym at least 3 times during the week, and enjoyed having that amenity in the premises.

I was happy to be able to communicate with the owners, with questions I had about the condo amenities, they returned my call promptly and were very helpful. I would definitely consider returning to this beautiful condo!

Excellent Condo and Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

We stay along the Gulf Coast a couple times a year and this is the first time renting this unit and it will NOT be the last. We usually spend hours cleaning a unit when we first arrive and did NOT have to on this stay. My wife began cleaning and after about 5 minutes she laughed and said this place is spotless! We have never seen a rental unit so clean. This unit is by far the nicest we have stayed in to date. The layout, the comfortable beds(yes-all beds) and well furnished. They even have a closet in the utility with tons of beach items and a rubbermaid storage box(huge) on the side balcony. I can't express how nice it is to have a wrap around balcony. Every room had an access door to the balcony which wrapped around the entire units' three open sides. Truly a perfect unit at a perfect price. Can't wait till our next visit and will be renting from this owner. Thanks so much!
