Dunes Dream - Pick Me For a Great Vacation!

TOP Floor of the D Building! Closest building to the beach at the Dunes - Enjoy the penthouse view!

FREE Beach Service With Each Rental (two cushioned chairs with an umbrella) March - October

FREE wireless internet in the condo and throughout the complex

Upgrades in 2017– New sliding glass doors leading to the balcony, a new counter height balcony table and chairs, two new leather swivel rocker recliners, and a new counter height dining room set.

WINTER - FEBRUARY MUST BE RENTED WITH JANUARY. There is no monthly rate for March. March rents by the week.

Come and enjoy the breathtaking view of the emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico and the sugary-white beach of Panama City. Dunes Dream is located on the 12th (top) floor of the D building at the Dunes of Panama which is the closest building in the complex to the beach. You can relax on the balcony that runs the width of Dunes Dream and watch the dolphins swimming and the sailboats skimming along. You have easy access to the balcony from the master bedroom or the family room.

The kitchen was remodeled in 2015 with new cabinets and granite counter tops and all new stainless steel appliances. You will find all the necessary cooking and eating utensils for an enjoyable dinner in if you choose. We also went the extra step and removed the wall in the kitchen which absolutely opens up the condo giving it an open and airy feel.

You can relax in the spacious master bedroom on the King size bed and enjoy the gorgeous view of the gulf or you can watch your favorite show on the 32” flat screen TV. A new beautiful tiled shower was also added in 2015.

The guest bedroom has two full size beds. It also has a 32” flat screen TV with a DVD player.

The family room has a comfortable sofa with a queen size bed and two swivel, rocker recliners so you can kick your feet up and relax and enjoy the amazing view or watch TV on the 50” HD flat screen TV. There is also a DVD player.

We have made arrangements with the on-site rental company in the C building to handle our check-ins/outs and any cleaning or maintenance issues. This assures that any problems can be handled quickly on-site. If the problem is not resolved to your satisfaction, you can also give us a call.

The Dunes of Panama is a gated, beach front community with 1500 feet of prime sugar-white beach. It has three beach front pools – one heated seasonally, basketball, two lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, a beach volleyball court, and outdoor grills. There are jet ski, parasailing, and banana boat rides available on the beach for rental. You can also borrow equipment from the office to play tennis, shuffleboard, beach volleyball, Frisbee, board games, bocce, corn hole, etc. There is also an exercise room and free wireless Internet available for your use. With the Suds Weezer's sandwich shop located right on the property, you never have to lift a finger

These are just a few of the great reasons to choose Dunes Dream! The beach is absolutely gorgeous and we hope you will think our condo is too. We hope you’ll be our guest and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking to rent two condos or if you would like a condo on a lower floor, please view our other condo (Dunes Dream II) at VRBO Listing #248717.

WINTER RENTALS: Please note that February requires a 2 month minimum rental - January and February together. Monthly rates are not available in March.

Our condo association rules require our renters to be at least 25 years old or be accompanied by two parents or legal guardians for the length of the stay. This is strictly enforced.

About Cheryl Mixson

Steve's parents had a condo at the Dunes of Panama when we got married in 1985. Every time we visited the beach, we would dream of owning our own condo someday. That someday came in 1999, when we were able to purchase C105 and in 2001 we got the opportunity to purchase D1205. Dunes Dream is the name we gave our condos to reflect our dream coming true. Since that time, we have thoroughly enjoyed spending time with our children at the Dunes. Having moved around in our careers, the Dunes of Panama is the one place that we have always come to with our family over the years and the one place our children call home. We now have the joy of seeing our grandchildren playing on the beach.

We love hearing from many of our guests how they have made their own family memories and started their own traditions.

Cheryl Mixson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Cheryl Mixson chose Gulf Lagoon Beach

We want our guests to have a great vacation experience. We are personally involved in the renting of our condos and have been since 2009. For our guests ‘convenience and peace of mind, we have contracted with the on-site rental company to handle our check ins/outs, maintenance, cleaning, and any problems that might arise while you are on the property. In addition, we are available by phone for any questions or problems that might arise. You don’t have to just deal with an impersonal off-site company.

What makes this condo unique

Our rentals come with complimentary beach service which includes two beach chairs and an umbrella on the beach. We added this amenity a few years ago, and we have thoroughly enjoyed using them ourselves. The Dunes of Panama has room to spread out with 1500 feet of beautiful white sandy beach.

D1205 is located on the 12th (top) floor of the D building which is the closest building in the complex to the beach. You can relax on the balcony that runs the width of the condo and watch the dolphins swimming and the sailboats skimming along. You also have the added benefit of not having anyone above you

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous place to stay. Very comfortable well maintained and fully furnished throughout. The beach and weather was amazing. This is the best and most relaxing vacation I have had in many years. I am so thankful I was able to meet you. We plan to return. This is a 5 star rating !!

Thank you again for helping to make our time at the beach perfect

Great value

  • 4 of 5

The condo unit itself is nice. The pool area is a little shabby-the chairs needed a power wash. The ocean and provided chairs were awesome. Seems like a nice family place. Our 3 teenage girls found lots to do in the area, but this condo was a nice, quiet place to have as a home base.
