If you're looking for a Panama City Beach vacation rental, you've come to the right place! This comfortable and amenity-filled studio-style condo at the Top of the Gulf resort is right next to the beach, offers a swimming pool, and has all the comforts of home for you to enjoy during your stay.
Nestled right up against the beach, this home is in a condo complex that enjoys a great location close to everything. With beach access just a few steps away, and several restaurants, shops, and even a golf course within a half-mile or so from your front door, you won't have to go far to find fun here!
This studio has enough space for as many as four people, though with so many activities nearby you may not want to spend too much time inside!
Have a seat in the living area and gaze out the windows, or step into the full kitchen to whip up a quick meal. This efficient kitchen has all the major appliances you might find in your own home—even a dishwasher for easy clean-up—so cooking will be a snap!
When it's time to rest up for tomorrow's adventures, you will find two queen-size beds and a fold-out sofabed that can accommodate as many as four guests. You will also have your own walk-in closet and a full bathroom. Within the condo complex you will even find a coin-operated laundry facility, game room, fitness center, BBQ area, and a sparkling pool (with a kiddie pool for the little ones), so you may not need to venture too far from your condo!
Within a walkable distance (or very short drive) you will be able to find a huge variety of restaurants, plenty of shopping, and many other activities to keep everyone busy. If you drive about four miles southeast along the coastline you will reach the gorgeous Saint Andrews State Park which offers plenty of sandy beach, boat rentals, nature trails and more. You could also explore more of the Panama City Beach area, or drive over the bay into the much larger Panama City for more urban activities. Whichever way you go, adventure won't be far behind!
Book a stay in this beachfront condo in beautiful Florida and treat yourself to a much-needed coastal getaway!

We were very disappointed in the room we were given! The bathroom was a joke. Painting chips were all over the bed. The whole place smelt like mildew also 20$ to park is ridiculous bc the security isn’t there all night! I will never book through this place again.
Very clean, awesome location, easy access, well stocked and no issues at all.
Had a good time and the place was very clean... Everybody there was friendly and helpful
The furniture is very dirty and the mattresses were very badly stained.
This floor will have had a floor cleaning and deep clean done by the end of October that will take care of these issues. Thank you!
Overall good location, excellent view.
Overall great experience. I will definitely be back. Cute cozy room, great price, very clean, and the staff/maintenance crew were on top of it!
i wouldn't say GREAT, but sufficient. Our room needed closet space and the wait to use of elevators was painful. Other than that, the rooms were nice and the property was in a great location and everyone was friendly.
you can not stay anywhere on the beach for this price for these accommodations.
A few friends and I booked this room for our spring break and were generally quite pleased. The place was clean, with a great view of the ocean and within walking distance of the beach. We would definitely stay again and recommend the place to anyone looking for an inexpensive, relaxing stay in PCB.
Love the location and amenities...
Great place right in the beach. It has all you need-but is really a hotel room with a small kitchen. So if you are looking for privacy from your travel companions-this is not for you! Comfortable beds, great view, wish there was a private balcony-and easy to find.
Our family of five stayed at this resort in July, 2016. We fit fairly comfortably and were quite pleased with the whole experience. I would recommend Top of the Gulf and this management company to anybody.
I would not recommend this rental for the price we stayed in it. We are not picky or high maintenance people, but we were really disappointed in the rental. It did serve it's purpose for the most part. We loved the beach and the water in Panama in beautiful. The room itself does not have WiFi. The room in on the 3rd floor and you actually have to go down to the 1rst floor in a lounge to access it. Which is inconvenient. My husband had to work and was on call while we were on vacation and internet was needed for his job. Also, when you arrive in the parking lot to buy your parking pass for the week. Security informed us that anyone that stayed in the Top of Gulf Condos were REQUIRED to wear a green wrist band at ALL TIMES. It would be fine if they gave you a band you could take on and off, but they gave you a plastic band, that snapped and did not come off until you cut it off. And I am expected to sleep and shower in this?? and never take it off the whole week I was there?? But we learned this is a really common thing in the Panama condos and hotels from spring break to Labor Day. There was several people who stayed in the Top of Gulf Condos that went without air conditioning all week. We were luckily not one of those people. Overall, our vacation was good. The beach was wonderful. Top of Gulf Condos does have a really nice pool. They had an outside shower from when you cam back from the beach. So that was really nice.
LOVE PANAMA CITY and ST ANDREWS STATE PARK
The hallway is nothing fancy but once you get into the rooms they are really nice. We stayed in 807 the first night and love the hardwood floors, toilet did move a little when u sit. But then the second night we was able to stay in our room 319 which we loved.. Perfect view.. Close to stairs and short walk to elevator. We ate at the snack shake by the pool and the bbq sandwich and cheese fries was real good. Shortest walk to the beach we have ever had. And they have a rinse station.. Sand is amazing and water was calm .. We have decided to come back in 2 months and we will be booking room 319
All in all my wife and myself were very pleased with the location of our room. the view was spectacular and the floor to ceiling window more than compensated for the absence of a private balcony.
This is the 2 nd time we stayed in Top of the Gulf. We throughly enjoyed our stay both times. Both units we stayed in were great. Very friendly staff. Right on the beach, easy access with the kids!
We really enjoyed our stay here. We were travelling with a group of 6 including children. The place was clean, people were friendly and it was very quiet. We will definitely stay again.
The stay was great...the only problem we had was at the gate. Was told we had to go to the rental company but all was worked out with call from Owner. Also, the room was great. Bathroom very small but work our okay kids were small. The pool was clean. The poolside grill was slow taking and serving food. All in all good place to stay.
Thank you for taking the time to submit your review to us! We were so pleased to see that you enjoyed your time with us and were able to enjoy the pool and other amenities. Please accept our apology for the confusion at the gate, we are not sure why they would have turned you away at first either. We did just recently acquire this property so there may have just been a bit of confusion while we were making the transition. Despite the gate issue, we sincerely hope you had a great time and we would love to have you as guests again!
