If you're looking for a home with endless resort-style amenities and a private stretch of beach that's just a walk away, look no further than this Panama City Beach vacation rental.

Located in Panama City Beach, and near Shoppes at Edgewater for dining and shopping, this luxury gated community has resort-style amenities to please every whim, making it suitable for friends and family to share. This home even comes with its own private sundeck on which you can admire the landscaped grounds and the canal while you and your companions grill and chat over cocktails.

Spacious and tastefully decorated, this home offers an open floorplan in the main living area, making it a comfortable retreat for large groups to enjoy. Lounge on two sofas and a recliner while the fire flickers on a stormy night. Flip through channels on the mounted flatscreen with cable, check email and Yelp reviews via WiFi, and enjoy movie nights sleepover-style with VCR/DVD players in each of the three bedrooms.

Cook delicious meals in the full kitchen with white appliances and plenty of counterspace to spread out while you chop fresh tropical fruit or freshly caught fish from the Gulf. The provided dishwasher makes cleaning up easy. Enjoy your meals out on the sundeck while basking in the warmth.

Guests will sleep soundly in this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. The first-floor master suite with a king bed and a private bathroom is the perfect sleeping space for those who may prefer not to climb stairs.

Upstairs, two bedrooms share a bathroom between them, both with queen beds and private TVs. A queen sleeper sofa in the living room provides extra accommodations, so up to eight guests will be very comfortable here.

Additional amenities include central AC to keep everyone comfortable day and night, and a private washer/dryer to keep packing light and linens fresh mid-stay.

Walk from your doorstep to one of the complex's 11 pools. Visit the Gulf-side pool near the clubhouse, where adults may enjoy refreshments at the clubhouse cafe while the kiddos swim. Head from there to the private stretch of beach, spread out on a beach chair, and take a nap in the warm Florida sun.

The kids (and the young at heart) will love the on-site mini-golf course and playground. Try your hand at tennis and shuffleboard at the on-site courts. The complex offers discounts to nearby Florida attractions like Gulf World Marine Park, Hombre Golf, and Emerald Falls Adventure Park.

Enjoy Panama City Beach's luxurious coastal lifestyle with your loved ones in this beachy Florida vacation rental.

Very nice place. Enjoyed our stay even though we were there during the Tropical Storm. Would rent again. Would like to thank the owners for accepting our accommodations.
Tiffany R. Jul 2020
The place was the perfect size for our family. It was clean and we'll kept and close to the ocean.
Melanie V. Jun 2020
I liked the location and the size of the rooms but very outdated and not the best customer service

Love the location, just a tiny walk to the shore and close to everything you need. Pools galore and quiet neighborhood perfect for the laid back folks and family friendly. The vacasa staff was friendly and accommodating, taking care of every concern, and the condo was super clean. This was our second trip to this unit and we will be back.
Jamie R. Jul 2019
We loved how big it was and how clean. All the extras for things you might have forgotten to bring are there. The deck is beautiful and the beach is just a small walk away.
Dianne H. Jul 2019
Loved this condo, we had very quick responses to the couple of small issues we had during our week's stay. Beach area and beach pool were both awesome everyone enjoyed the property.
Susan S. Jul 2019
We loved the proximity to the beach, the deck out back looking over the lagoon, the pools. The kitchen was nicely stocked and the front closet full of beach and look toys was an added bonus.

We loved the facility. Kitchen appliances very nice. Comfortable couches. Beds were ok for the week. Big enough for our family of 8! We had two little ones and there was plenty of space for their toys and things. Loved the back deck and side yard where we set up corn hole, it was perfect for that! Grilled out a couple nights that was nice. There were pool floats in the closet and a box fan which made things easier!
Michael J. Nov 2018
The unit had everything me and my family of 5 needed. Plenty of room and it was right on a lagoon with lots of turtles and wildlife. My kids loved it! The unit is on the end so its a bit more private and also has a BBQ right off the huge back deck. Site staff were very polite and helpful. I highly recommend this property.

Rebecca M. Jun 2018
Very clean unit and had everything we needed and was a great location
Kayla P. Jun 2018
Our stay at Gulf Highlands via VACASA was very nice, spacious place, and most everything was provided for us. Robin was our point of contact and she was very kind and knowledgeable she was readily available for any questions or concerns we may have had. The only thing i would say is that the appliances are a little out of date, the bathtub upstairs doesn't drain very well, and the neighbors were kind of rude about our parking places. We were told we had 3 parking places and we only had 2 with a small area beside the place for a small car. Aside from these 3 things the rest of our stay was fine. The place was clean and not but about a 3-4 minute walk from the beach.
Cynthia J. Apr 2018
The condo was cleaned and well kept. The beds were comfortable and linen was fresh and clean. Brought our on food to prepare and was highly delighted that the kitchen had all the pots and utensils you needed. The bathrooms were also to the utmost standards. I will definitely be looking forward to booking another stay there.
James H. Apr 2018
It was exactly what our family needed.
Jacek M. Mar 2018
Nice, clean, quiet place. Spacious.
Pretty good location, within walking distance from the beach.
Highly recommended!
David K. Feb 2018
Great location, convenient to the beach and affordable. This is my second stay in this unit and I plan to stay there again.
Antonio E. Feb 2018
Great weekend getaway. Clean and quiet. Great access to the beach, Walmart, and several restaurants.
Fishing wasn't bad either
Lissy D. Sep 2017
I stayed there for 3 days with my family, it was just as describes
Syeni L. Sep 2017
I rented this place on Labor Day weekend. It was very nice. I enjoy the huge balcony overlooking the lagoon. The townhouse was clean and large for my group of 8. My daughters and I enjoy the pools that was walking distance and big. The townhouse was walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and stores. My only complaint was that there was only one main entrance to the resort, but 3 different exits, one exit that was next to this townhouse. Overall I enjoy this townhouse and would rent this place again for my future visit to PCB.
Shawn W. Aug 2017
I do believe this was our number of condo.
The condo is is great shape. Very clean and you will have a great time while staying in this location. You walk out your place and down a sidewalk 2 minutes and you are at the beach.
Ma D. Jul 2017
Very good
Jackie W. Jul 2017
Close to the main strip...& minutes to the beach.
Cheryl G. Mar 2017
The property was very nice. The house was very nice and clean. My family had an awesome time and hopefully we will stay here again
Gwen A. Feb 2017
Overall this home was OK. However it was very dated and in need of a thorough cleaning. When we arrived late at night, the last thing I wanted was to enter a room with a terrible smell. Slight gas oder but something else that made me nauseous. Carpeting is in terrible condition. The sliding patio screen doors are old and very hard to open. I don't like to complain, but when you spend $$ for a vacation and you are less than satisfied, I feel it necessary. Would I stay in THIS particular unit again? No. But I would definitely go through Vacasa again. Very friendly and accomidating.

Gulf Highlands is a beautiful place to visit, just make sure you get a decent place. Pictures are deceiving.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback with us. We have great news: The carpet has been replaced, along with new furniture and a tile. The gas smell has been addressed and the home is ready for new guests to come enjoy Panama City Beach!
Don K. Jan 2017
Had a great golf weekend trip, will be back next year!
Dan R. Nov 2016
I am sorry to say, but this rental gets a giant thumbs down. The place is literally on its last leg before it should be bulldozed. Dirty floor coverings, dirty furnishings, outdated windows and doors, outdated appliances (easily 20 or more years old. The kitchen is disgusting, there was nowhere near enough dishes, storage containers. The only new items in the house were some pots. The location was suitable for our Ironman experience, but the set up to enter and leave the property was awkward forcing all to come in through only one entrance all the way around the other side of the property. This place is the pits, look somewhere else to stay.
Manager response:
We’re excited to announce that this home has been updated with new carpet and tile and a new sofa and love seat. In the bedrooms, the bedspreads have been replaced and, in the kitchen, a new gas range has been added and two sets of dishes included. Also, a deep clean has been done throughout the home. This is a very nice townhouse that’s located close to the Shoppes at Edgewater, a fantastic dining and shopping venue, and lends to the luxurious coastal lifestyle. Thank you.
Rozzie H. Oct 2016
Great location. Plenty of room. Great pots and pans. Live the deck and grill location.
Janet W. Oct 2016

Josh H. Sep 2016

Rikenver A. Aug 2016
My family and i had a great stay had lots of fun and the area is great! We loved that mostly everything was provided..
Tammie F. Jul 2016
The walk to the beach is not a bad one but it is a little bit of a walk. Everyone was very nice and please note that if they changed the carpet and cleaned the couches I would give it a five and try to rent it again. We absolutely loved the lake in the back with all the beautiful fish and turtles.
Brenda S. Jun 2016
This property was very nice and perfect for a family vacation. Nice short walk to the beach, several well maintained pools and very close to shops and restaurants. We had one issue with the washer breaking down and it was replaced the next day. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to staying again.
Princess F. Jun 2016
We loved our stay. Especially the security of it being a gated community
Stacy C. Jun 2016
Location and condo were wonderful.
Jesse M. Apr 2016
everything was as it should be for a vacation rental.
Susan L. Aug 2015
This property was a perfect location and great for families or friends getting together. Quiet in the evenings. They offered everything you could possibly need during a long or short stay. Plenty of space, a block from the beach and right next to a convenient exit gate from the community. Many convenient stores, restaurants, attractions around this location. Loved it!
Kim M. Jul 2015
My family has been renting this unit every summer for over 4 years. The condo is an end unit with a large enclosed back deck on the canal. It has been an ideal location for our children to play and the adults to enjoy visiting with each other. Each stay has been a pleasant and enjoyable vacation filled with precious memories.
