Gulf Gate even offers amazing rental options and excursions like dolphin encounters and parasailing!
With calming painted walls, cozy furnishings, tile floors, and plenty of bright lighting, this home has an elegant feel while still making you to feel right at home. Although there are only two bedrooms, the mirrored walls make it feel spacious and airy.
The living room is perfect for lounging or taking a quick power nap on one of the soft blue sofas. Bring your favorite movies to play on the flatscreen TV and DVD player.

Along with the dining table, there are three wood barstools at the kitchen bar for snacks on the go. You could even take your tasty home-cooked meals out to the balcony and take in the salty ocean breeze and spectacular Gulf views.
With everything you'll need and more, the kitchen makes meals a snap so you can spend more time actually on vacation. The sea-blue countertops, matching walls, white cabinets, and hand-painted faux window with an "ocean view" will almost make you feel like you're swimming in the ocean itself. Along with all the major appliances, this kitchen also has a microwave, coffeemaker, and dishwasher.
A wicker-framed queen bed, matching bedside tables, and a flatscreen TV and DVD player occupy the first bedroom. Guests who stay in this room, as well as guests who sleep on the sofabed, can use the hallway's bathroom with a tub/shower combination.

Teresa L.Nov 2019
Clean and had very think you need to cook with. The view from the bedroom window was beautiful it was a little to cool to sit out side. We had a great time.

My wife and I and friends have stayed at Gulf gate before. we really like the location and the fact that is very close to the water. We prefer not to be really high up so we were on the 4th floor which was really ideal. I would say that there were a few things that management or the owners could have done to make a nicer like replace some of the chairs on the balcony. The feet of the chairs were rusted off. But it was the pretty much what we were looking for and would definitely consider staying here again. We like the Thomas drive side of Panama City beach.
Wendy W.Sep 2019
Nice, clean, and in walking distance of restaurants.
Mary Ann H.Jul 2019
Worked for what we needed a place to stay so we could go fishing
Diana R.Jun 2019
The condo was nice with a very good view. The only thing I found wrong was the screen door to the balcony had come off and was laying on the balcony.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Diana! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at this lovely condo, and we are happy to report the screen door has been repaired. We look forward to hosting you again!
Denise G.Jun 2019

Jesse H.May 2019
We loved how close we were to the beach. The condo was the perfect size for our group of four. This was the most relaxing vacation we have had in years!

Edward C.Aug 2018
The location of the property was great, but the condo is definitely in need of an update and maintenance. The furniture is worn out and very outdated, the dishwasher leaks,master bed frame is sagging and very uncomfortable. There was not a can opener to be found in the entire condo. The coffee maker was old and full of mold. The sliding glass door in the living room was broken and took two people to even attempt to open. The carpet on the back patio was full of sand when we arrived and not a full patio set was on the patio as pictured. The condo is definitely in need of a good cleaning throughout as well. All the ceiling fans were covered in dust, mold in the showers and toilets. Neither toilets in the condo flushed properly. This condo was not worth the price we paid to stay for 5 nights. Some of these things were already mentioned in some previous reviews and management replied that they would be fixed, but obviously they had not yet been repaired, as promised. Disappointed guests. We will not be back to this establishment in the future. We will stay elsewhere.
Read the reviews on the bad stuff and it is spot on!
We are so sorry to see this guest was disappointed and wish they had called since most everything could have been corrected during their stay. We recognize these issues should have been taken care of prior to guest arrival, and we do apologize for that oversight. The living room furniture that was ordered prior to this guest's arrival has finally arrived and is now in place. The bed has been fixed, the dishwasher has been fixed, and the sliding door has been taken care of by a door company. It is difficult, but manageable. A new coffee maker and can opener are in place, the carpet has been removed from the balcony, the toilets are functioning, and the unit is scheduled for a deep clean. Thank you!
Joye F.Aug 2018
Loved that it had 2 baths. Roomy enough for privacy. Loved the proximity to the beach. The pool was mostly in the shade which is great to cool off after being on the beach. Furnishings need to be updated but were functional.
Camille B.Jul 2018
We enjoyed our stay here. Fabulous location, spectacular views & a lovely condo.
James H.Jul 2018
We loved our stay in this room, the view outside the balcony is just beautiful. The room itself needs a little update like the chairs and table in the balcony but all in all it’s still a nice room. We would love to come back.
Shirley T.Jul 2018
I loved the fact that we were able to check in early. Very clean unit, great beach view, however the sink in master bedroom was stopped up the entire time. But was a Great place for a family reunion. The indoor pool was great but needed to be larger, But it was a great for the kids. I would definitely stay again.
RB M.Jul 2018
loved location quieter outside of the main traffic jams...just needs to be updated to make it a yearly gem of a place to stay for asking price
New living room furniture will be installed by mid-July. We look forward to the changes this update will make!
Leandra W.Jun 2018
The interior of the condo was just as pictured. Good location. Good parking area - elevator a little slow, but ok. Nice pool area. Gorgeous well-kept beach with plenty of chairs/umbrellas. Only complaint was the sliding glass doors to the balcony, the carpet on the balcony, and the furniture on the balcony. The main sliding glass door was very difficult to open - the manager came promptly when I called and showed us how to open it, but it was still very difficult so we ended up using the door in the master bedroom to go in and out. The carpet and furniture on the balcony have seen better days. Over all, though, we had a relaxing & enjoyable time.
The door company is scheduled to fix the door this month, and we have removed the rug. Thank you!
Douglas P.May 2018
Very nice 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with a great view. Right on the beach with a nice heated pool. Well worth the price.
Mark H.Apr 2018
Great view—comfortable and clean. Definitely recommend!
Shefalika N.Feb 2018
Great condo with a gorgeous view. Enjoyed the place with my family. Surfside shrimp is a great place for shrimp and other sea food. The condo could use a hair dryer, ceiling light in the master bedroom and a handle to slide the patio door open... minor things. The pool is heated and great for families. Would definitely stay there again!
Nerzana B.Nov 2017
We had great time, relaxing place rigt on beach, perfect for family and kids.

Alison C.Oct 2017

Robert D.Aug 2017
It was our first condo stay and it was great, felt like home away from home. Great room, beach front, superb swimming pool !
Jerry B.Aug 2017
This Condo is an older condo, not in bad shape. It just needs new living room furniture, and needs a handyman for a day.
Elizabeth J.Jul 2017
Loved the view and the easy access to everything
Shaneka G.Jul 2017
Everything was so nice I enjoyed my stay I had a awesome time for my birthday I will be defentily staying again😘😘😘😘
Kim R.Jun 2017
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay, this is the place for you! This unit is clean and airy. Right on the beach with a most beautiful view. The only negative thing is the outdated appliances. Would still recommend this condo.
Christie L.May 2017
We booked this condo after our first one became unavailable 2 weeks before our arrival and what a blessing in disguise. The location is perfect if you want to be away from the crowds. The condo had amazing views and was so easy to get down to the beach and water. Anthony's Beach Service worked the section of the beach in front of the condo and we watched them work every morning, getting chairs and umbrellas ready. They even picked up the trash on the beach! We walked down the beach both ways and this was the best and cleanest section.
Noah F.Apr 2017
If you're planning to vacation in Panama City Beach, I would definitely recommend this rental to stay! Good location, very nice and well kept, nice view. Definitely going to be staying here again in the near future!
Deanna C.Apr 2017
Its is a great family vacation home.
Michaela D.Apr 2017
We enjoyed a week, at this condo and on this beach. We had 2 teenagers with us and they enjoyed the location. It's more of a private beach area, but close to many hot spots. Our condo had great space, all of the amenities one could need and it was cozy. There is a good view of the sunset and beach. The pool area has plenty of shade, for the sometimes needed escape out of the sunshine. We made new friends with some other families and can't wait to return next year. We will be back for sure.
Rachel H.Mar 2017
I am torn, the room was ok. We were two families so a hotel room would not have worked. So the price for this room for one night was good to split two ways. We loved that it had a cover pool. We got there at 4 went to the beach, and then swam in the heated pool until 6. It was great for the kids to get energy out of. However we were disappointed in the room. It had a terrible odor, and the master sink didn't operate. And that evening we tried to watch TV in the main room. And it didn't operate.
Lara L.Mar 2017
Nice area, beautiful view! Spacious! Just needs a deep clean
Terry B.Mar 2017

Johnay D.Mar 2017
My family and I throughly enjoyed our stay. We look forward to visiting and staying with Vacasa again!
Anthony L.Jan 2017
Dated bathrooms, but very helpful staff and nice quite location on the beach and close to everything you want to see.
Charlene S.Nov 2016
Great condo and property. The pool area was covered, breezy and roomy. Fantastic gulf views from condo and pool. Staff was very eager to please. Will definitely be back
Elizabeth S.Oct 2016
Condo was spacious. Beds were comfortable. Beach was beautiful!! Loved the location.
Amy G.Oct 2016
This is an older condo which needs a good update.
Denise S.Sep 2016
We were so pleased with everything from the cleanliness, I didn't feel the need to wear socks or house shoes, the place was spotless! (And I'm a nurse). The interior design is very pretty and makes a peaceful setting to relax in. From the pics I thought it looked "nice" but when arriving we thought "WOW..,so pleased!!" From the furnishings, the view is priceless. Even the master bedroom has a huge front water view, and screened door to the balcony. Plan to return for sure!
Sharon C.Aug 2016
We enjoyed our stay.
Elder L.Jul 2016
Very spacious! The views right on the water were to die for. Everything was clean and the kitchen was a great plus! It was closer to the beach than we imagined and we were very happy with that. Would definitely recommend this condo to everyone! Thank you!
Derri A.Jun 2016
Loved the location and the convenient parking but our unit needed updating and issues with the curtains and sliding doors!
Kathy M.Jun 2016
We enjoyed our stay at the Gulf Gate. The condo is convenient to grocery stores, Walmart, and other fun activities such as golf, go carts, etc. Andrews State Park is a short distance away as well. The condo was nicely decorated with only a few minor issues. But nothing that would make our stay absolutely unpleasant. I would certainly recommend this condo to families and plan to stay here again.
Hipolita V.May 2016
I honestly like it, very affordable. Nice view, close to different places to visit only bad thing was that one of the bathroom was dirty but overall we enjoyed our staying at golf gate & I'd stay here again.
Will Z.Oct 2015
Not a 5-star hotel by city standards, but for a beach condo that is beach front, in a decent location, and equipped for a short term stay....it was great for our needs.
We spent most of our time on the beach, boating around the bay to shell island, and a night out to dinner. We basically ate breakfast, slept, and showered there....the rest we were out in the sun.
The appeal for us was the great price/location. We could have spent more and stayed else where but it would have been money wasted.
Christopher Y.Sep 2015
Excellent place to stay. Very clean, comfortable beds, beautiful views, and great location. This was our first time to Panama. We will definitely be booking again in the future.
Nicole W.Sep 2015
Found via VBRO. Was VERY pleased with this condo! It was clean, had everything we needed, quiet, and had a wonderful expierence.
Richard H.Aug 2015
Very Pleased with this property, comfortable and convenient to everything, Loved having breakfast every morning on the balcony looking at the ocean.
Pam B.Jul 2015
We enjoyed the condo very much. It was spacious, great view, comfortable beds, nice pool area and great beach access. Out of the way of the busy traffic patterns and close to great restaurants. Only issue was the elevator. It was unreliable, sometimes out of service, and my daughter and grandson got stuck once when the doors would not open. Otherwise everything was very nice. Would definitely stay here again.
Allison B.Jul 2015
We loved our stay here and already are planning to come back!
Stacey H.Jun 2015
This was a nice property. We will stay there again for sure. Very secluded kid and family friend. Not a bunch of teenagers running around. Covered pool was nice and in the shade so you didn't burn in the sun. Just steps away from the sand. Very quite! Loved this spot! Highly recommend!
Dawanna M.May 2015
This was planned as a getaway for me and my daughters and it was awesome!! My kids loved it so much I ended up calling to see if our unit was available to add 1 more day. The pictures do not do this condo justice. It is clean, well maintained and nicely decorated. After a trip to the store for snacks we spent the majority of our time on the beach or on the balcony. I look forward to staying again
Ines E.May 2015
The unit is in quiet area. We enjoyed our stay, but for the same price, we've stayed in more updated units. The oceanfront view was nice but not spectacular as this unit is pushed in so there's a side wall from next door units that sticks out about 10-12 feet limiting your view to straight ahead, which also limited breezes. Beach chairs were not included as other places do and wifi is not secure. The one lounge chair provided in small patio is hard plastic. Too uncomfortable to use. But again. I went there for beach and beach was nice and quiet, not crowded at all, so we did enjoy our stay overall. Would consider staying in end unit that sticks out in future, but not in this specific unit. Also, if you're a light sleeper forget sleeping in 2nd bedroom. You can here loud humming of main AC unit kicking on/off all night.
We are happy to see that you ultimately enjoyed your stay with us. We will look into your comments as we make improvements. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
