Why Tina chose Florida Panhandle

This unit is perfect for those who want to stay at a nice place with out NEW place prices. We remodeled and replaced everything with all NEW things. We love our condo and you will too!!

We love the Thomas Drive area. It is a little less congested usually and is near our favorite places to hang out.

This place was a perfect fit for our family. Great views. The security on site were very nice. Staff was nice. One of my very favorite places to stay while in Panama. We will definitely stay again.

Beautiful views, beachfront property!!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was exactly the R & R we (me, hubby, and 2 teenagers) needed after several days of hiking in the smokey mountains. We parked and didn't leave for the 2 days we were there because we didn't "need" to. There is a snack booth by the pool that sells burgers ($5), hot dogs ($3), and Margaritas! Also within walking distance is Spinnakers grill (seafood cravings), 3 brothers pizza, and Alvins for beach stuff and souvenirs. Although we took our own, Tina did have quite a few beach items available in the closet (umbrella, chairs, sand toys, floor mats). There are plenty of dishes, pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, toaster, BBQ grills downstairs etc.. for making meals which is something that is usually a must have for my family when traveling but this trip was just a quick stop for us for some R & R. It was clean, AC was COLD, hot water was hot! Thank you Tina!! this is a place I would stay at again!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here and couldn't be more pleased. The condo was exactly as described and it was wonderful to wake up and have an ocean view. Security on site was very friendly as were the owners of the small snack/drink bar by the pool. Only suggestion I have for future renters is to bring quarters if you plan on doing laundry on site as there is no change machine. We would totally book again. Thanks again brad and Tina for an amazing first family vacation!

Our room was great!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at the top of the gulf for three years and this room was our favorite. Very clean and updated . There was pool and beach toys in the room we actually added some of our toys to help keep the next kids entertained. On the down side the complex has changed management I guess and they were very rude and strict about everything . There was one really nice guard who agreed all the new rules were uncalled for. None of this had anything to do with the owner of our room she was great. I just wish the complex was more relaxed.

Fantastic Stay on Panama City Beach

  • 5 of 5

The property was well kept and right on the ocean. The ocean view from the shared balcony and unit was beautiful. The owner also provided great service.
