Take the family away to a tropical, amenity-rich paradise in this Panama City Beach vacation rental. With tennis courts, one of 11 pools right outside your door, and private beach access just 10 minutes away, this gated community is an oasis of luxury!
Located on the edge Panama City Beach proper, and a mile from local attractions like Wonderworks, Ripely's Believe It or Not!, and Dan Russell Pier, this 70-acre gated community offers entertainment for the whole family inside and in the surrounding areas.
This bright and spacious townhome boasts simple beach comfort with its white furnishings and tasteful accents. With TV with a DVD player, board games, a private washer/dryer, and a balcony on which to lounge and catch the fresh sea breeze, you'll feel right at home in no time.
Come home after a day of fun and activity to lounge on two sofas before the flatscreen TV, either to catch a show, to watch Netflix via WiFi, or to read. Central AC and nice natural light keep the home cool yet sunlit.
The full-service kitchen offers standard comforts like a dishwasher and a coffee maker. An L-shaped breakfast bar has plenty of space to spread out a buffet of cereal boxes or fresh seafood dishes.
Sleep soundly in the two upstairs bedrooms, both with queen beds. A sleeper sofa in the living room makes enough space for six guests to sleep soundly in this home by the Gulf.
And what an adventure you'll have here! There's so much family-friendly fun to choose from inside the gates of this community. There are 11 pools scattered around, lighted tennis courts and shuffleboard courts to challenge your traveling companions, and complimentary access to an 18-hole mini-golf course. There are playgrounds for the kids, a fitness center to work out in, and a beach clubhouse with a cafe and snack bar.
Head out to the private stretch of beach and try your hand at parasailing or wave-running, or simply rent a beach chair and an umbrella to catch some rays and watch the surf rolling in. Gulf Highlands Beach Resort offers its guests discounted access to favorite nearby attractions, including Gulf World Marine Park and Hombre Golf.

We loved the neighbor feel of the townhome, the newly renovated bathroom was just gorgeous! One of several pools was very close. There was security in knowing this was a gated community. I liked the pool that overlooked the beach and had it's own access to the beach.
It was an amazing package. It had everything except for the coffee and breakfast, but that's manageable, there are many shops nearby and it just 2 miles away from the beach.
Verdict : Great place to stay for a good price
Very nice location, environment and the condo was excellent
Everything was awesome. Loved that it's some places that are not pet friendly 5 Star home.
Everything was nice and clean, people was friendly.
The property manager Robin was great! We felt safe in the area, not too far from the beach and park pier. The home had everything we needed except for a normal size grill. All and all we had a fantastic time at the property.
My family and I really enjoyed the stay here. They had everything we would need and more. The house was very cleaned and Robin was really nice enough to let us check in when we arrived early. I love that the pool was right outside and that the beach was right down the street. I would stay again if I'm ever in Florida again.
The house we stayed in was just remodeled, and every thing was good. There was a little walk to the beach, but there was an access to front beach from gulf highland.
Stayed the week of 7/31/17, overall accommodations were ok. Little further away from beach then photos show when looking for a place to stay. Overall place was fine and enjoyed the pools we had access to.
Kitchen cookware needs major update. Housekeeping needs to improve. To expensive for what you get.
The property manager inspected the cookware available and found 4 frying pans, 2 large pots, 1 medium pot, 1 small pot, an electric frying pan, cookie sheet, and a large glass dish. At this time we feel this is sufficient. Thank you!
Short walk to the beach. Condo was very clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again.
Overall our experience with vacasa was great. The condo we stayed in was pretty nice and the kitchen area made it easy for us to make a few meals instead of going out constantly. We had close access to the beach and many pools to choose from. We were a little disappointed that after being told the maintenance guy would be there to work on one of the bedroom lights, it was never fixed. But I would recommend using vacasa for future vacations.
Overall we are very happy with the property (see below comments for some trouble areas). The beach was great, the water temp fantastic. A close walk to the beach, I'd say about 5 minutes. There is a hose by the front door to wash off the sand. The whole complex was very quiet and family friendly. I would recommend it, but it is sort of a budget rental. A nice, budget rental. More than adequate, but by no means lavish. Which was what we were looking for.
Room for improvement:
A few comments for improvement from my wife:
1. Replace the black front door mat...when you rinse the sand off and step on it with damp/wet feet, the black bleeds into your skin and gets tracked into the house!
2. Fix the towel rod in the lower-level bathroom...every time I washed my hands and tried to use the towel on the rod, the entire rod would fall off the wall.
3. Salad tongs would be a great addition to the kitchen.
A few more from me:
1. One of the chairs in the kitchen had a seat that was detached. Two of my kids fell out of the seat, at different times! Once they learned to be careful with the "tricky chair", no more incidents.
2. Yes, the towel rack in the upper bathroom is attached with duct tape, as a previous reviewer mentioned. But it is really tastefully duct taped, if you can believe it...
We greatly appreciate receiving these comments. The mat has been removed, tongs have been purchased, and the chair and towel bars are scheduled to be fixed. Thank you!
Me my husband and four kids stayed for spring break the pool was close by us so that was very convenient for us it was a short walk to the beach I love the location and I like that it is quite so you don't have to be around all spring breakers I would suggest this place it's very family oriented.
Great pleace. Love gulf highlands
It was very nice and clean. Very convenient to beach and shopping areas
Very good unit to stay in and the general area is great.
We were close to everything Panama city had to offer. I look foreard to our next trip
My family and I had a great weekend. This condo was a lot nicer than comparably priced hotel rooms in the area. Everyone we ran into in the community was very friendly. Best choice ever made for a family on a budget.
overall we would do the vacasa vacation again. it was very nice,conveniant,
and a great location
Really enjoyed our stay! Just minutes walk from private beach access, very clean property, local residents greeted us upon arrival, property management A++ :)
Enjoyed our stay at Gulf Highlands. Very accessible to the beach. Overall, the complex amenities were very good, but the unit we stayed in could have been cleaner. Ideal for a family on a budget.
we loved staying here because of the security and it was very clean , I would like to rent it for a month , next time, convient to shops and restraunts , beach
We enjoyed our stay here. And wil return again soon. I will use Vacasa again. Staff was very help full.
Had been 16 years since coming to Panama City Beach, so was unsure about this place. By accident stumbled upon this and took a chance on it. Can't begin to tell you how pleasantly surprised I was. From being greeted by the guy at the guard shack, greeted by the owner next door, and one text to Robin we were set! Everything was in order and much to my liking. Will definitely stay here again!
Affordable, close to beach, three pools and tennis if you don't feel like heading out. Relaxing.
It was a nice place to stay very simple check in and out thank you for offering us to stay longer and answering all questions I would stay here again definitely:)
Gulf highlands is a nice place to stay. The amenities are excellent. The staff is awesome. Thank you for another family friendly vacation week.
