The view was absolutely beautiful. The view itself was worth the money. The room was very clean, and the facility in general was well maintained. With the contact number the Vacasa provided, it was really very easy to communicate with the staffs. When we arrived there, we had some parking permit issue, but they took care of it almost immediately. We are so thankful for that.
The place was very quiet during our visit (Mid November), so private beach was almost like our own private beach. The location was great also. Several grocery stores are within 5-10 min driving distance. If you want to eat out, there was a plenty of options available. We will definitely come back again! I highly recommend this place!

Gulf Gate was one of the cleanest condo complexes we’ve been to (and we travel a lot). The entire place - stairwells, walkways, elevator, pool area, and our room #308 were very well kept and clean. We were very pleased. The room was exactly as pictured, so no surprises. The 2 twin beds in the living room and the king bed in the bedroom were very comfortable. The view from our balcony was great! We could sit every morning and drink our coffee while enjoying God’s beautiful creation, watching the calmness of the of the Gulf, and seeing the occasional stingray, sea turtle, schools of big fish, and even sharks. Since the building was literally right on the beach, it was a very short walk to find our perfect spot on the beach for the day. Gulf Gate is on the quieter end of the beach, away from the business of the big resorts and “nightlife” of the city, which was exactly what we were looking for when trying to find a place to book. We absolutely enjoyed our stay, and are already talking about when we might be able to come back.

We had a lovely time here at Gulf Gate 308. The view is amazing, so close to the beach. The bed was super comfy and the condo was spacious and within walking distance to a few bars and restaurants. The tv in the living room is large and we enjoyed watching movies in the evening. However, a couple of issues....the sliding glass door, needs to he replaced. It does not close all the way and it's a pain to open and close. After talking with some owners, we were told that the complex is supposed to be replacing the doors on all the units. So hopefully they will do that soon. Also, the hot water in the shower is trash. It does not get hot, which unless you like a luke warm shower, is pretty awful. The water in the sinks though does get hot, so not sure what the issue is there. Overall, it was a nice stay.
Hi, Teresa! We have scheduled a repair service for the sliding door that should have everything fixed by the end of March. Thank you!

We absolutely loved our stay in this condo! It’s very charming - loved the decor and the “home away from home” vibe. The amenities were great- they really have thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay. There were even enough electrical plugs for techy folks who travel with a lot of devices. The view (and sound) of the water from the balcony and the comfort of the beach area (not crowded at all) were so fabulous! We will definitely stay in this condo again!

The first thing you notice is the large glass doors leading out to your perfect view of the beach. This condo had so much room and hangout space as well as fully stocked kitchen and linen closet. The beds were super comfy and clean. We even had tv with a shelf stocked with games and DVDs. Also a wifi service that even worked on the beach. I would 100% come back and recommend this place to anyone that wants a queit place to lay by the beach but is within walking distance to restaurants and attractions.

I spent a quick three days visiting my daughter who was in the condo below Gulf Gate 308. The accommodations were impeccably clean and welcoming. I enjoyed the Star Fish collection and large screen cable television (do wish the Bears played better though). The condo was quiet and convenient to elevator access. A sliding door lead to private Gulf views of spectacular sunsets. The Vacasa materials were clear and helpful. Looking forward to a return trip soon.

First we never received an email with instructions of what to do when arriving/how to receive our code to the room. We assumed we would get it from the office when arriving but the office had a note posted saying they weren't letting people in and to follow instructions on the email received. So after a 9.5 hour drive, we were stuck on hold on the phone waiting to get into our room, which was mildly infuriating. Secondly, the balcony door to our oceanview was completely broken. There was a huge gap on one side where the door had came off of the tracks and it pretty much took two people to close the door every single time, and you could only close it from the inside. So anytime we wanted to go out to relax on the balcony, enjoy the oceanview, or smoke, we had to leave the door open. This made it close to 80 degrees in the condo at all times and would smell like smoke. We called Vacasa less than 10 minutes after we arrived, who said they would get someone out to look at it. The property manager came up, said it would need to be resealed, someone would be out there the next day to assess/fix it, and we would receive a credit because of it (no balcony access was a huge problem for me in an oceanfront balcony room!). Nobody ever came, nor did we receive any notification of a credit. We called again and were told the same thing, and AGAIN, nobody came. We are now on the way home with no resolution or even attempt at one from Vacasa, nor have we received a credit per our Vacasa account. Absolutely ridiculous. 0/10 would NOT recommend.
Hello Joe, thank you for staying with us at our gulf front condo. We apologize for the issues you experienced in reaching a member of our team at the peak of the pandemic. We have worked hard to add additional agents to our team and are pleased to note that we are once again able to assist all of our guests in a timely manner, regardless of the time of day. We are also happy to ensure that the home's sliding doors have been repaired. We do ask in the future that our guests keep in mind that there is a zero toleration no smoking policy at all Vacasa properties. Any smoking should be done off the property. We look forward to hosting you again soon.

This condo exceeded my expectations. It was super cute, clean, and had plenty of space for 4 people. We loved the size of the balcony and great beach view. GulfGate is not one of the super high rise places that has tons of people competing for a spot on the beach, so that’s another plus. The location was fantastic in that it was just far away from the chaos of the strip, but still close enough to go enjoy it. The staff that we came across were super nice, as well. I would definitely stay in this space again without hesitation.
Robyn R.Jun 2020
I rented this condo for the view, and all I can say is WOW! We will certainly book this location again.
Alexus W.Jun 2020
My little family had the most amazing time at this beautiful little home. The condo itself is decorated beautiful and designed for maximum comfort and usage of space. The beach is absolutely beautiful and there was a nice home-y vibe among the complex. My parents came by for dinner and plan on booking this room for a future trip as well. We couldn’t have asked for more. The only issue I had was, after messaging the host to ask if having my parents for dinner would be okay, I never received a response. It wasn’t a huge deal, just would’ve like to hear back from them to make sure what I was going was okay. Anyhow, our trip was amazing and we definitely will be staying here again. Ready to come back!!!
Thank you for your review, Alexus. We are glad you enjoyed this home and apologize for any delay in response due to the high call volume we've experienced. We hope to host you again in the near future!

They could not have been more accommodating! My girlfriend & I just returned to Wisconsin from our week long Panama City Beach Vacation. This was my first beach vacation & Vacasa made it absolutely amazing. 1st they made the transition very smooth from booking to check in. Then our room had a very small issue with a leaky faucet, so what did they do? Yep they upgraded us to a beautiful condo on the beach that had to have been twice the cost of our original rental at no extra cost. The condo was absolutely breathtaking, & they ocean view could not have been any closer or we would have been in the water. On top of all of that they even credited me back $90 for the inconvenience which wasn’t an inconvenience at all. Next they went out & bought and delivered all new furnishings for the place like dishes, fans, cleaning supplies, vacuum, mop, laundry supplies, etc... I am a customer for life, and would never book with any other company. They treated us like Royalty & made our vacation experience something that we will forever be grateful for & never forget.
