This charming beachfront Panama City Beach vacation rental is sure to make for a perfect family or friend getaway. This pet-friendly condo also boasts access to a sparkling community pool, a full kitchen, and WiFi!

You're just steps from sandy beaches and crashing blue waves at this Gulf Gate Estates condo. The resort is just far enough from downtown Panama City Beach for you to enjoy a quiet vacation, while still being close to delicious eateries, shopping, attractions, and more.

Bursting with vibrant colors, this retreat offers comfortable furnishings and ocean-themed decor, which ensures a relaxing beach getaway from the moment you step through the doors.

Sink into the colorful floral sofa or love seat for movie night in front of the flatscreen TV after a day soaking up the sun. Toss your favorite movie into the DVD player or unplug completely for some true quality time playing games across the ivory coffee table.

Catch up with best friends over drinks and dessert prepared in the full galley kitchen. Although quaint, the kitchen includes everything you'll need for tasty home-cooked meals or quick snacks on the go! Along with all the major appliances, a microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, and toaster are also included.

With seating for six, the black-and-white dining table is perfect for sit-down family meals or a competitive game night. Three upholstered stools are available at the kitchen bar for breakfast in a snap before heading out for water-filled adventures. You could even venture onto the balcony to inhale the ocean breeze or watch the picturesque sunsets as you savor your after-dinner drink.

A delightful wicker-framed king bed occupies the master bedroom. Gorgeous watercolor decor and a sliding-glass door to the balcony bring the Gulf to your doorstep. A full bathroom is attached for convenience and privacy.

Down the hall is a second bedroom with a plush queen bed, fresh white linens, an ivory headboard, and matching bedside tables. Two twin beds covered with intricate sailboat quilts occupy the third bedroom, and a second full bathroom with a tub/shower combo is available through the hallway. The sofabed in the living room means this condo comfortably sleeps up to eight guests.

There's no need to pack much more than your swimsuit and a few day outfits as this home has a washer and dryer onsite. Plus, you can bring two small dogs along (under 25 pounds each), just note the additional pet fee.

The heated community pool faces toward the ocean so you'll feel as if you're swimming alongside the fish. This Gulf Gate condo partnered with Adventures at Sea so you can try out parasailing, fishing, snorkeling, and banana boat rides, or rent pontoon boats, jet skis, and beach chairs, for an additional fee.

Try Angelo's Steak Pit, just two miles away, for a delicious juicy steak or head down to the Pier Park seven miles away for more mouth-watering seafood, rides, and shopping. Even more family fun is to be had at Shipwreck Island Water Park, which is less than four miles away and Ripley's Believe It or Not, Wonderworks, and more are just two miles away.

Come enjoy a slice of paradise with your family or friends when you stay at this lovely Florida vacation rental.

    We knew from other reviews that this is an older unit, but in a quiet area of PCB. Which is what we wanted. We were right in between the busy, bustling areas but close to everything. The condo was clean and everything was in working order, just older. The mattresses were quite used and in need of replacement. But the access to the beach and the view more than compensated for the uncomfortable beds. The master bedroom bedspread has many pulls and picks, but is just for looks anyway, so we weren't bothered by it. We just took it off, folded it and put it to the side. So no issue there. There were marks from the blue chairs on the walls as well as marks from possible suitcases and/or the porters cart. Which was a shame as the area is wide enough for the cart. The carpet in the bedrooms was old but clean. But again, the view from the balcony and the short walk to the beach made up for everything else. The shades in the master bedroom are terrible. Several slates missing and several torn at the top. Had to be very careful with them. They let a lot of light in and the sun came right in the door to the master bed, so no sleeping late! The condo had nice, thick curtains in the living room so you could keep out the heat and the light if you wanted to. Those curtains would have been great to have in the master bedroom. The price of the unit was quite acceptable so we could overlook a lot of the issues mentioned by others. The one thing we could not overlook was how hot it was in the master bedroom. We were there in mid-November, so we could turn off the a/c and open the doors at night to keep cool. But during the day, if we came in to change, take a nap, etc. it was quiet hot. I hate to think of how hot it might get in the summer! That was the main issue we had. There was no use in contacting Vacasa as it is the way the condo was set up-- only one vent for a very large room with very large windows and sliding doors. We do plan to return to PCB next year, but will be looking for a different condo, but only because of the lack of a/c in the bedroom. I would recommend the property because of the beach access and the view. But would warn them about the mattresses and hot master bedroom. Some people like it warm, but not our family.

    This was a great location and very reasonably priced. We were close to everything, but the beach was not crowded. Parking was easy and appreciated the code rather than having to keep up with keys. We recommend this condo!

    My family and I loved this vacation. The condo was perfect for us! It was well maintained inside and a beautiful view from the balcony. There is only one thing that I do realize is not Vacasas fault but my mom and 10 month old baby got stuck in the elevator for about 10 mins. It was a very scary situation for them, but the workers at the condo notified the fire department immediately and got them out! They were very helpful and apologetic that this happened. Needless to say, we took the stairs the rest of the trip. Haha. But overall everything was wonderful, everyone was wonderful and we would definitely like to rent again!

    Location is superb! This area off of Thomas Drive is so quiet yet just a few minutes from all the shopping and restaurants. Loved the view and spent A LOT of time on the balcony. Perfect vantage point for catching both sunrises and sunsets on the ocean. You are so close to the beach. So close! Loved the three bedrooms. Loved that the master opened up to the balcony. Was a wonderful Thanksgiving week for us...Lots of special memories with our kids. Everything went flawlessly from check in to check out. We didn't want to leave!

    I would not stay here again. It was filthy. There was a book for visitors on the end table in the living room that was covered with ants. Floors and rugs were disgusting. All the kitchen utensils are useless and dirty. Keep looking!!!

    Overall experience was very good, especially with the awesome location and beautiful ocean view. The beach and water were outstanding without any wildlife, such as seaweeds or jellyfish. Be prepared to bring your own beach loungers and umbrella or you will need to pay when you get there to reserve these things. The bedroom furniture, linens, and bedspreads could really use an update. They were pretty worn out and old. Overall, however, the place was very clean and comfortable. Awesome time with our family overall!!!

    This was our first trip to PCB and it was a blast. This was probably the best vacation that we have had. As soon as we arrived and walked into the room, it was evident that it was going to be a good vacation especially when my daughter said "Dad, you did good". The view was incredible and the fact that you could just walk onto the beach was awesome. I have already recommended this location to others and would not hesitate to stay here again.

    was disappointed with the condition of the furniture in the condo.
    There were tears in the cushions and pillows, the dining room furniture was scratch up. I have stayed at Gulf Gate several times and expected a better condo for the money. Was a good trip just believe this unit needs to be updated, doesn't compare to other units I have stayed at.

    Was a very pleasant condo, very well spaced out just a short walk to the beach. Very convenient to any store and places to eat. We decided to stay in most of the time to eat to save money so it was awesome to have a fully stocked kitchen. We very much loved this condo as it was perfect for our family and friends that came with us. We appreciate the convenience of reserving the room and the easy instructions for checking in/out. We would love to stay here again.
