We loved this condo. Great Beach views from this 2nd floor condo. Short walk to the beach and pool. Very clean and the beds we’re comfortable. We will definitely be back.
Ravikumar S. Jan 2020
Gulf gate is a wonderful unit to stay in panamacity beach as beach view .we stayed for two days and it’s awesome place enjoyed each and every minute.Good place for young and newly married couples. Good amenities and staff “Robin” Answered for all questions and full support. I really could recommend everyone to stay here
Andrew M. Nov 2019
Our family had a great time and really enjoyed the condo. Had plenty of space for four adults and a toddler. Pictures didn't do the view justice. Condo had nice and updated touches, but could use some small repairs that would make it 5 star. Still good value for the money.
Mark T. Nov 2019
Great location and great views. Condo was very comfortable and staff is very friendly. Will recommend Gulf Gate to my family and friends.
Valerie P. Oct 2019
We loved the unit and the private beach . We will come again
Crystal T. Oct 2019
The location is amazing! The beach is super private and it is just gorgeous! The condo is beautifully decorated and just perfect for a family trip!
Thomas J. Oct 2019
Condo was roomy and cute! Perfect for a family vacation. Can't get enough of this view.
Close enough to everything you need to make this the perfect vacation spot. Love the beach access!
Kitchen has everything you need! Loved it!
Rebecca M. Aug 2019
We shared this condo with 3 other couples and had an awesome time! Location is awesome
Mark A. Aug 2019
Stayed 4 nights. There were 6 adults and 3 children in our group. Loved that it was right on the beach but not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Lots to eat and do within a few minutes drive.
Only bad thing was that it was not furnished with pots and pans like stated in the description. We had to go buy our own.
Thomas P. Jul 2019
The home was perfect for us great location the property is not to large so wasnt terribly crowded on the beach
John V. Jul 2019
The location on 2d floor is great as it is only a one flight of stairs if you dont want to use the elevator. Unit doesnt seem to have been kept to the standards of our first visit several years ago. Fix all light bulbs and improve sliding door from living room to balcony. Great view and would like a reduction in costs to compare to other units at Gulfgate.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback. We have passed along your suggestions to the Manager. We hope you will stay with us again soon!

Leo T. Jul 2018
Convenient and very spacious condo.
John V. Jul 2018
Well maintained and Robin was a great asset during our stay. The microwave died and she was able to obtain a portable one that met our needs without disrupting our stay by having one put in. We have stayed here the last 5 years and plan to be back in 2019.
Kevin N A. Jun 2018
Genesis R. Jun 2018
Excellent view, condo was in perfect condition, and it’s very close to all the attractions
Cheryl M. Jun 2018
Loved the location of condo and any small problems we did have were handled fast and professionally. We enjoyed all the room it offered. Would definitely recommend it.
Blair H. May 2018
this condo was very nice, roomy, and comfy for our stay. The master bedroom tends to be a quite hotter than the rest of the house, probably because of the 2 large windows. There was a fan in the closet (Thank Goodness!) so that was a nice surprise.
Robin (property manager) is very nice and willing to accommodate you any way she can.
The beach photography people will annoy the crap out of you; they will come up to your group every day while on the beach and ask if they can take your picture for free.
Anthony with the beach services (umbrellas and chairs) is AMAZING, and he is very affordable and will take care of you the whole time you're on the beach.
Quiet area with not a lot of traffic for the time of year we went (May20-25)
You will run out of hot water very fast if both showers are being used at one time.
Make sure to bring extra trash bags and cleaning supplies if you have a bigger group staying. They start you out with some, but you have a lot of trash and use a lot of dishes you'll want to bring more with you.
We will definitely stay here again, as the location is great, the beach was a lot nicer than where we have stayed previously, and it was very clean!
Trena G. May 2018
We very much enjoyed our vacation at Gulf Gate. Unit 212 is so clean, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Plenty of hot water for showering and all the necessities were available for preparing and cooking meals. Great location too! We will be sure to book our next vacation with you and share our experience with family and friends. Look forward to next time!
Mike H. Mar 2018
Unit 212 was absolutely perfect. It was a unit we would re-book without a second thought.
We've been going to Panama City Beach from Ontario Canada since the 80's but this was the best accommodation we've ever had.
Hopefully we'll be back.
Laura S. Feb 2018
Fabulous location and view out your bedroom and balcony worth a million bucks!
Beautiful beach! Awesome place for the price!! Needs a little updating but had all amenities necessary.
Connie B. Dec 2017
We enjoyed our stay at Gulf Gates #212. The condo was in great shape. Had all the things we needed to rest and enjoy our vacation. We love Gulf Gates for the peace and quiet. We will stay here again!
Pamela H. Oct 2017
7 people stayed a week in this home, comprised of one senior adult, 2 adult couples and 2 school aged children. there was plenty of room for all of us to be comfortable, beds are extremely comfy, the private beach is amazing! washer and dryer was wonderful to have as we did laundry daily. recommend only one person to shower at a time, and wait to run washer or dishwasher until after showers or else water pressure is lost. all the properrty managers and neighboring owners/guests were very friendly. the pool was a great addition for the little ones who couldn't swim in the ocean the first few days due to the after math of hurricane Nate. I would totally recommend this unit and cannot wait to stay here again on our next family adventure!

Jerry P. Sep 2017
This condo looks as if it had been professionally decorated, and was VERY roomy along with high end appliances throughout. There is only one elevator in the middle of the building, so bring your walking shoes if you rent this unit as it is on the end. It is in a quiet end of the beach,but there are all kinds of restaurants and gifts shops within walking distance. The pool area was clean and nicely done with its own showers and restrooms.
Stacy T. Aug 2017
Right on the sandy beaches! Loved it!!! Will definitely stay in the future!
Robert E. Aug 2017
Spacious three bedroom condo just steps from the beach! Smallish kitchen but large dining room table for dinner and games! The condonwas in very good condition, It is an excellent value, and we highly recommend staying here!
Deana D. Aug 2017
When I plan my trip to Florida I like to know that all I have to worry about is getting my family there safely when I rent my condo from gulf Gates I know that everything is going to be taken care of and That I will have everything I need when I get there thank you Mike and Robin for making my family's vacation memorable we will see y'all again next year and thanks again
Vicky P. Aug 2017
This beach condo was the best. The price was great. The location gets no better. The condo is very roomy. This unit is perfect for a family beach getaway. The decor adds a lot to the beach vacay. Unit 212 is a very nice and clean beach condo. Can't wait to get back.
John V. Jul 2017
very nice unit and has ample room. Also 2d floor location makes for easy access without using the elevator. Great view.
Diane R. Jul 2017
We have been coming to the Gulf Gate for years. Some rooms we stay in are much better than others. Room 212 was the best so far. Some others we mark off to not return to. The facility as a whole is perfect for us because all units are beachfront and only a few steps away from the beach.
Felicia S. Jun 2017
We didn't specifically pick Panama City Beach, but we couldn't find the right sleeping arrangements for our family. This condo was just right to accommodate everyone in our group. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. We would definitely stay here again.
Dominic K. Jun 2017
Property is worth the money and we had a great time in the area.
Jordie M. Jun 2017
Unit #212 appear the same as the pictures advertise on the websites. This united is well decorated with updated décor and appliances. We were a party of 8. The kitchen dinning room allowed us to set as a family at the dinning room table. The bedrooms are spacious especially the master bedroom with a grand view of awakening to a white sandy private beach and beautify ocean. The beach is beautiful, clean and not over-crowed as surrounding beaches. We would highly recommend united #212. We already miss the beach and ocean view.
Steven S. Jun 2017
This was our second trip to this condo and the same unit. It's very convenient to the beach. We spent a lot of time on the balcony.
Nigel R. Jun 2017
We had a wonderful experience on our trip here. The condo was very well located and very clean. Loved how close to the water it is also. Will come back again.
Richard J. Jun 2017
Everything was as promised. All 7 of us had an OUTSTANDING family fun time here. Great view and sound of the ocean. No one wanted to leave!
Vicki F. May 2017

Sheila M. Mar 2017
Great quiet area. Unit needed some updating . Pleased with response to leak under bath sink. Diagnosed and fixed quickly. Manager, Mixon came quickly to help with tv issue.
Eric V. Mar 2017
The condo was exactly as represented on the website. Exceeded our expectations.

Danielle H. Mar 2017
Great place! We went for a spur of the moment weekend with our kids. Very quite and kid friendly. Definitely will be back.
Dameion W. Feb 2017
Great beach getaway for the weekend. The view was amazing . We loved being right on the beach in a corner unit. The space was great for a family with four children running around. Unit was nice and clean. Outside of a few updates it could use, it was a very good stay. We would definitely recommend this unit to other families looking for a beach getaway. We would use them again in the future. Thanks for an awesome stay.
Christopher W. Jan 2017
We enjoyed the location and size of the condo. The beds were comfortable. We will be back again sometime.

Jearl C. Oct 2016

It is very clean and price is RIGHT.
Cody L. Aug 2016
We stayed at Gulf Gate 212. Gulf Gate condos aren't big and fancy looking, but our unit was nice and updated. The beach and facilities were clean. We loved our stay. There was plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 teenaged girls. There are only a few things that we noticed. The kitchen didn't have scissors to open anything and there was no blender to make drinks which was kind of a bummer. The water pressure is also a little weak. Three of us have long thick hair and getting everyone showered and out of the condo on time to meet up with people was a bit difficult because it took longer than normal to wash hair. One of us also wished that there had been a hair dryer available. We looked and didn't see one, but we may have missed it. Last comment from one of the guys is about the light switches in the bedrooms. They control an outlet on the wall and not the overhead light/fan. It took us a little to figure it out because the lamps had been switched of on the lamp instead of using the switch on the wall. The one in the room we stayed in, the lamp had been plugged into a different outlet. He didn't discover it until he was trying to charge his phone and it wasn't working, but the lamp was on. He got curious and tried the switch and it worked. He ended up swapping them.
Overall it was nothing major. We had a great stay and once we figured everything out it was fine. We would definitely stay there again. Great experience and a good price.
TINA C. Jul 2016
We were extremely impressed with our stay at this condo. I would highly recommend this condo for the next vacation getaway in Panama city Beach, FL.
Cedric D. Jul 2016
Our stay was wonderful!!!! Beautiful condo very well kept.

John V. Jul 2016
We were well pleased with the unit #212. It has great decor and is well laid out. Beds are in good shape and other amenities are efficient. Love the view and location.
Will stay again.
Gail R. Jul 2016
Great ocean view, really good beach, unit 212 was lovely.
Amanda S. Jul 2016
The condo was clean and beautiful, and only one floor up, so easy access from the parking lot. It's hard to find places for our family of six, so it was nice that everyone had a bed, and nobody had to sleep on the sofa. Very convenient to have an access code for door entry, so you don't have to carry a key to the beach!
Dedra P. Jun 2016
This was a well kept location was awesome, placed in middle of beach so not to crowded which was the best part
Judy C. Jun 2016
Great vacation spot!
Steve S. Jun 2016
very nice
Phyllis A. Jun 2016
We enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were lovely, but we were disappointed that the Internet would not work from the condo.
Sadie B. May 2016
Loved this condo. Looks exactly like the pictures and the location was great, right on the beach. Definitely would stay again. Highly recommended!
Pamela E. May 2016
The Experience was Awesome! The Condo was very nice and clean, a home away from home experience, everything in place to accommodate your every need.
Kudos to Vacasa!
Christina N. Apr 2016
Not recommending because there were too many little things wrong. If items were fixed and proper maintenance was done I would come back or recommend. Location is amazing!
Kevin H. Nov 2015
Great place stay. The condo was decorated beautifully, was very clean, and included some of the niceties that we weren't expecting. We especially enjoyed the beach chairs and towels since the beach service was over for the year. Will definitely return again!
