About Larry and Cathy Mason

We chose to retire here in Panama City Beach after living in Atlanta for most of our career lives and always vacationing in Panama City Beach. We have now been retired and living here and have been renting out our condos in Panama City Beach for 10 years. Our beaches in Panama City Beach are the very best--most beautiful-- place to vacation or own beach front property in the WHOLE WORLD!!!!!

Larry and Cathy Mason purchased this condo in 2004

Why Larry and Cathy Mason chose Panama City Beach

There are so many fun attractions and restaurants in Panama City Beach that are within a few minutes of Gulfcrest and even some within walking distance. This makes Gulfcrest an ideal destination for a family looking for a fantastic beach getaway. St. Andrews State Park is only minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

Two beachside pools (one heated seasonally) and two hot tubs overlooking the Gulf, beautiful wide white sandy beach, Tiki hut, fitness center, outside picnic areas with gas grills, covered parking. Our three bedroom condominium has a wraparound balcony accessible from all three bedrooms.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this spacious 3BR corner unit, and we'll keep coming back. Love the open feel, west views out the windows, comfy furniture, and GulfCrest overall.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful, very spacious with gorgeous views. The balcony wraps around for views of the ocean from the front and sides, and views from the front of the condo. The ocean side of the balcony is nice and wide with plenty of seating. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.
