                                This condo is very clean (even from a "germaphobe" point of view!) and VERY well equipped. Owner's are more than helpful and quick to answer any questions. They even offered to let us reschedule when a tropical storm came through the weekend we had reserved. We would definitely stay here next time we visit PCB - this place has everything you need, and it's just steps to the beach and very affordable. I'd recommend it to friends and family for sure.

                                Everything was exactly as described. Very clean! The studio was as comfortable as if I was in my own home. The furnishings were very well maintained. The kitchen lacked nothing. We cooked every meal except for supper and the studio provided everything I needed to do so (ie: large bowls, casserole dishes, utensils etc.). The layout maximized the space in the studio, so we never felt cramped. Great to have washer/dryer on same floor. Garbage chute on each floor made disposal of trash simple. The pool and beach were never crowded. The walk to the beach took less than 5 min. from the studio door to sand. Really enjoyed the location of the bldg. on Thomas Dr. due to the close proximity of places to eat and drink. We walked everywhere! We have not stopped talking about our time there and how we can't wait to go back!

                                My husband and I just completed a short beach getaway - we wanted to get some time together before our first child arrives in 8 weeks. This unit was PERFECT!!! It was clean, extremely well maintained, comfortable... everything you could hope for on a vacation. The owner was super nice and helpful. She even gave us a discounted rate when we asked to extend our vaction by one more day (since we were enjoying our time so much)! Top of the Gulf is an older place, but you would never guess it by staying in this unit. The major bonus for us in staying at a smaller condominium complex was that the pool and beach were never crowded! So enjoyable - and super family friendly. If you are looking at places to stay - you should stay here! We plan on coming back (of course it will be a while since we will have a newborn in tow) : )

                                We stayed in this unit in the last week of June 11. Once again, you totally exceeded our expectations for a wonderful vacation. You answered all questions and everything that could be thought of was right at our finger tips. You are totally first class, in our book and you will come highly recommended to friends and family that will take care of it. You can surely tell the pride that goes into your units, to make our vacations ones that will always be remembered!

                                We enjoyed our stay at Top of the Gulf 601. The Top of the Gulf is an older establishment in PCB, but the room was very clean and modernized enough to our liking. The only downside I would have is it is a little small. Only one person could be in the bathroom at a time. The room had everything we needed. There was a nice pool and kiddy pool there. Our child really enjoyed the kiddy pool. It was also direct access to the beach which was really nice. Located close to Wal Mart and resteraunts. I would highly recommend staying here. It is a really good value.

                                This is one of the cutest, cleanest condos at the facility. My neice also stayed at Top of the Gulf and she was jealous when she saw just how cute this was. Matter of fact, she made me give her the owner's info right away so she can stay there on her next visit. Everything you need is in there....we love, love, love the fact that you don't need to look for your key when entering. There is a keyless entry system that works like a charm! Another added bonus is how close you are to the elevator and the view from the room is gorgeous. :)

                                Put your key in the mail Monday. The only issue I had was the door knob. I had an issue getting to unlock but I just used the deadbolt. Your room is so beautiful and perfect. Excellent view of the ocean and pool. Very nicely decorated and although I didn't take advantage of it, there was every thing one would need for cooking anything. I really enjoyed my stay and your room and want to continue to use you for my next trip. I may be going back soon and if so I'll definitely contact you. Thanks a million. Johnny

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: We are The Jordans. We are from Dothan, Alabama but call Panama City our 2nd home. We love this place.

                              Why the Owner Chose Top of the Gulf:
                              Our family loves Top of the Gulf. We have owned here off and on since 1995. The complex is family oriented and we love the location. This property is an older, settled property. Our family likes this complex so much that my mom, sister, and father in law either already own or are buying one here.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                              Our condo has everything we need to enjoy the beach! It's small but it has the all we need, kitchen, beds, and bathroom. Oh yeah, and WIFI!
