Oceanfront condo w/beach & pool access, and stunning views - snowbirds welcome!

Discover the Sunshine State's hottest beaches within the quiet comforts of home in this two-bedroom Panama City Beach vacation rental. With beach access, ocean views, a shared pool, and space for six guests, this home is the ideal year-round retreat for couples and families looking to explore the sun and surf!

This ocean-front condo is located in the Gulf Gate community just steps to nightclubs, restaurants, and sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. Take a dip in the community pool or get the perfect summer glow on the sunbathing deck. When the beach beckons, grab your boogie board or join a pick-up game of beach volleyball!

Spend your afternoon buried in a book and take advantage of beach chair service, which means you'll never run dry on pina coladas! Explore the city by nightfall. With this rental, you'll receive discounted tickets to Gulf World Marine Park (seven miles away), cruises to beautiful Shell Island, and laser tag and exhibits at WonderWorks (two miles)!

Inside, the condo is inviting, with traditional white and blue accents, seashell decor, and tile floors for easy sand clean up! The open-concept living room offers sofas overlooking the sea and balcony and entertainment for windy days. In-home entertainment includes a DVD player, WiFi, and three TVs so you'll never fight over the remote or streaming device!

Gather around the six-seat wicker and glass-top dining table for a formal meal of surf and turf, or eat a light snack at the two-seat breakfast bar. The spacious kitchen offers modern appliances and plenty of counter space to whip up gourmet feasts or sandwiches for the beach.

With two bedrooms and two full baths, the condo comfortably sleeps six guests. The two bedrooms are inviting with king beds, white wicker-accent furniture, and balcony access. A queen sleeper sofa in the living room makes space for last-minute travelers! Extra home amenities include a private washer and dryer, and central AC to keep you comfortable for extended stays.

Outside, the balcony will become the heart of your vacation headquarters. It offers side-sweeping views of the beach, ideal for watching the Fourth of July fireworks or playful dolphins. A charcoal grill and a bistro table complete with a shade umbrella and seating for four are perfect for outdoor meals or cocktails at night.

Stake out the perfect beach chair or make your way into town for tastings at Panama City Beach Winery, shopping at Pier Park, and waterslides at Shipwreck Island Waterpark. The sub-tropic community is family-friendly by day and a circus by night with the state's hottest nightclubs and bars.

I loved this place. The outside wasn't what I expected but then I got in the condo and it was great! I loved that it's a smaller building so there are fewer people out back. Condo was clean and comfy. I am booking there again in the near future.

Only about 50 to 60 units. I liked it much better than the crowded towers. Stayed on the 4th floor, never needed the elevator.

Love the location. Our favorite part of the beach. Condo nice. Second year we’ve stayed at Gulf Gate & will plan to stay again next trip. Have stayed on Surf Drive for many years when we get to go to Panama City Beach. Don’t want to stay anywhere else when we go. Love sitting on the balcony as well as walking on the beach.

We cannot wait until next summer to come back to Panama City. We will stay here again. We have stayed here 2 years in a row and love it.
Teri V. Jun 2017
We only had one negative issue with the condo: both bedrooms had rock hard mattresses. My daughter was fine with hers, but my husband and I had a terrible time trying to sleep on it. After 2 days of not really sleeping, I called and spoke to Nick and asked for a foam mattress topper. Nick brought one over later that day with no arguments and it was a blessing!!

This is a nice condo, close to the beach, very clean and the staff are extremely helpful!
Denise R. Jun 2017
The unit was clean and had a beautiful view of the beach. The kitchen was pretty well stocked. We appreciated the soap and shampoo being provided. Decor is dated but comfortable. We had a wonderful time at Gulf Gate. A big plus is the covered pool so no one got too sunburned and kids could swim when it was raining. Gulf Gate is convenient to great restaurants, stores and recreation. I would recommend it to anyone.
Jerry F. Feb 2017
Outstanding location on the beach.
Debra S. Oct 2016
Looks like kitchen has been painted and updated but furniture needs replaced and curtains were absolutely worn out
Manager response:
The curtains appear to have fallen off during this stay, but they have since been rehung and are in good shape.
James M J. Oct 2016
The condo was a wedding gift for my nephew, a problem arose but Michael and Robin Mixon IMMEDIATELY solved the issue!!! Their dedication and expertise made for a GREAT TRIP/HONEYMOON for my Nephew and new wife! They were very happy! I can't thank or praise the Mixon's enough!!! Great Condo, Great Location, Great Management!!!

Family female getaway of 6. We were able to be ready in about an hour for dinner. We were comfortable and pleased with our accomodations. Plenty of towels. All soaps provided for kitchen and laundry. Condo was clean. We were close to all the things we wanted to be.
Michael . Jun 2016
We were in 402 and we loved it! It was super clean and very comfortable. The beds were very comfortable also. Great view from the room!! Lots of near by restaurants and things to do for the kids. We will definitely be coming back, although next time we may get a 3 bedroom and bring my daughter and her husband too! I can't wait for next summer to come back!
Brian C. Apr 2016
We loved the condo, we are actually planning already to visit again.
Lisa J. Apr 2016
My original plans were changed due to construction. This was an upgrade..I was very pleased, home was clean. The balcony has a beautiful view of the Gulf. I would stay again.
Alesha B. Mar 2016
Working with vacasa rentals was a great experience for me. Our original place we had rented was having construction going on and Vacasa gave us other options to stay at. Ours ended up being an upgrade from our original plans. We were very excited and very very happy with where we ended up staying! We did decide to stay an extra night. The condo was clean and very comfortable and had an amazing view with a balcony! I can not wait to go back! Thank you Vacasa for a amazing time!
Drew W. Oct 2015
Vacasa was wonderful to work with and helped us find a place last minute. Such a great experience from beginning to end. Will use again for future vacations.
Sharon P. Jul 2015
