Pack up your sandals and sunglasses for a fun stay at this oceanside Panama City Beach vacation rental! This Florida Panhandle resort city has it all - miles and miles of beautiful beaches, popular restaurants, shops, and family-friendly activities!
Just 10 miles from the bigger and more bustling Panama City, smaller Panama City Beach is right on the Gulf of Mexico near Saint Andrews State Park. Aside from sparkling white sand and gorgeous blue waves, this area offers a plethora of attractions - from marlin and snapper fishing to golf courses to scenic trails for hiking and biking.
This amenity-packed studio condo offers a comfortable home base with a full kitchen and a walk-in closet. You'll also have access to two pools, a sun deck, BBQ area, game room, and a fitness room. You can even play shuffleboard or, if needed, wash some clothes in the coin-operated laundry room right on-site.
This is the perfect place to unplug and spend quality time with family or friends as WiFi is not provided in your unit, although there is Internet access in the lounge.
Of course, the main draw here is the beach and you can't get much closer. Located right on the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico, you're just steps from the sand! Let the kids build a sandcastle while you catch up on some reading. Or, bring a blanket down to the shore and take in a romantic sunset with your sweetie.
Perfect for a small family getaway, a romantic retreat for two, or even a solo trip to recharge and relax, this well-stocked Florida vacation rental in Panama City Beach has everything you'll need for a memorable vacation in the Sunshine State!

Loved the location!! Two minute walk to the beach! Condo was clean as well!

This unit definitely needs some TLC. I wish I could attach pictures, but hopefully my description gives you the general vision. The cabinet door in the bathroom was hanging off with a broken hinge, the baseboard was flapped open in the area near the front door/bathroom, the blinds are broken which means at 6am you have sun blaring straight to the bed, the couch had sprinkled stains so we did not sit on it, the shower curtain had black mold/mildew stains, there is a burn mark on the wall next to the stove because the stove is literally up against the wall, the outlet near the nightstand has no cover so I wouldn’t suggest anyone with little kids stay, and the view is of an ugly parking lot. I also wasn’t happy with the strict no guest policy. While our friends in a condo down the road could have us over, they couldn’t even enter our complex parking lot to pick us up. We had to walk out of the gate. We were down for a beach wedding and actually ended up only staying one of our 3 night stay in our room. The rest of our trip we stayed with friends. We aren’t picky people, and have been visiting the area for years. I’m surprised the reviews are so positive for this condo. It really was not good. I’m sorry, but wanted to make sure others truly know what to expect when renting this condo.
Hi, Barry! Top of the Gulf is going through major renovations this fall that will address your concerns, and the home will receive a deep clean as well. Thank you!

Good place to stay...owner was relatively reaponsive to make my stay better. Only downside the units at the location don't have balconies and no beach front view. Otherwise I would give it a 4/5

This was my first experience at Top of the Gulf and we loved it. The proximity to the beach and all of the amenities offered were a great bonus. We enjoyed our short stay very much

Love the tile floor throughout . Very cool air and just a nice place to stay ! We got swapped to this room at last minute as other owner backed out . The view in this room is not perfect ( side view of beach) , facing parking lot. But we stayed 5 nights and enjoyed it !

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Top of the Gulf #606. Everything was clean and appropriate. Staff that we interacted with was very pleasant (security guards), our girls loved the pool area.
Bryan D.Jul 2018
It was close to everything and righ on the beach. You don’t have a beach view but just down the hall you can look at the beach.
ALESHA C.May 2018
With all the construction on Front Beach this end of the ocean front was perfect, but older facility could use some updating.
Russ W.Aug 2017
For an older condo the building was in pretty good shape. Room #606 is dated and needs a little fixing up, but the room was clean. Security was seen at all hours while I was on property and they were friendly. I did hate that the rooms do not have balconies off of the beachside rooms to enjoy, but over all good price for what it was. I will stay here again. I met some condo owners, and everyone was friendly.

I thought everything was nice and i order.

It is right on the beach so that was wonderful. But I specifically chose this place because it said they had internet and they don't - there is an internet cafe on the first floor but you can't actually connect your computer to the server (wired or wirelessly). There weren't any window curtains, there are slatted blinds but some of the slats are missing so there's no way to escape the sun at dawn. The king bed was comfy but there weren't any sheets for the pull out couch bed.
We're sorry the guest had some concerns regarding the items mentioned. We try and communicate to our guests that we are available 24/7 to answer any questions and provide clarification. The confirmation email sent to the guest states clearly that wifi is only available in the guest lounge. The property manager was available to resolve the window curtain issue and to notify that the sheets for the couch bed were in the closet, had he been called. Thank you.

I enjoyed my stay at the top of the golf. Even after all the miss hap with the website charging me the wrong thing Vacasa took care of it. When i arrived the security guard was helpful with things we could do for free and also showing us around the property. Besides the floor being sticky .....it was a wonderful stay

Older, but good unit/building. A/C did not work first night but maintenance came and fixed on Saturday when called.
Antonio P.Aug 2016
Great place. Condo is a little dated but location is fantastic. Would definitely go back.
Siegfried P.Jun 2016
it was out first trip to this area. We have enjoyed the condo and the beach. bring your phone with you. no internet-connection in the room, bad in the special room groundfloor. it is a good place for two peopel, bed is comfortable, bathroom little small, kitchen is acceptable to prepare lunch and dinner for two people. furniture in the bathroom should replaced soon.
Josiane S.Jun 2016
Location was perfect for us, away from major crowd. Loved the beach being only a few steps away. The other guests were very nice and friendly. Would stay there again.
Candace H.Jun 2016
I was pleased over all with our stay here. It was a girls get away. Mother's/ daughters week. The condo is close to a few restaurants and gift shops. Walking distance. Which was nice. But was a drive to go to pier park and mall. The beach was nice but they didn't do a great job at keeping their board walk clean of trash. They did keep a close on on arm brands to make sure no one wasn't there that wasn't to be there. So wear them. ???? The room was ok for what we paid for it. The mattress had stains on it. They really need a new one. Also the sleeper sofa was old and had mold growing on the black part the mattress sat on. Gross. Make sure you bring TP and other things as paper towels ect once gone they will not provide any more. The Ac couldn't keep up with hear outside so was still stuffy in room. The ceiling fan made noise couldn't get it to stop and the room I guess you call the closet stunk terrible. And the bathroom sink was stopped up. One other complaint the smell of sewer outside and trash was overpowering too.
We apologize that the room was not in more pristine condition for this stay. The Property Manager is working on the items brought to our attention via this review, and we will provide updates on those improvements as they become available.
Laura W.May 2016
The location was great. The furniture was very comfortable and usable. We loved the porches, easy beach access and the concession stand. The location was close to everything, we walked most of the time and could get to most attractions within 10 minutes. We will be visiting again for sure.
Rita R.Oct 2015
The unit was well appointed with an abbreviated view of the gulf. I was disappointed that there was no individual balconies to sit out and watch the gulf, sunset, etc., but there were places on each floor in which to do that. The noise level was at a very minimum as there was a noise curfew in place, which was very appreciated.
The beach was very clean.
Overall, I had a very relaxing, peaceful time there.
Cindy C.Aug 2015
We loved the location of the condo to the beach. Our first night was a little rocky because there were some young adults that were drunk and disorderly and because of this I stepped in their spilled beer in the lobby. This said, the police came and evicted them and we didn't have any other problems. This particular condo was a bit outdated but really served our needs. I did feel it could have been a bit cleaner (the walls looked dirty and the AC unit had a lot of dirt on it). We also loved the pool area. It was very clean and beautiful. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much.
Christina B.Jul 2015
We loved our trip to Panama City Beach. This location was awesome. The beach was so close we didn't even bother getting in the pool, which looked very nice and well maintained. We spent a lot of time on the shared decks and enjoyed the scenery. I would definitely stay here again.
Brenda S.Jul 2015
The location is great and security is thorough. Not real fancy, but this can't be beaten for cost and ocean front.
