About The Owner

We live in Birmingham, Alabama, and we purchased the townhouse in 2010. We love outdoors and we don’t pass on any opportunity for sport, travel, relax, and family time. We have been coming to Florida and traveled along Gulf Coast for the past 11 years. We kept coming back so often any time of the year that we eventually decided to buy our own beach house. We put our heart and soul into the remodeling of this condo and we hope you will enjoy it just as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2010

Why The Owner chose Panama City Beach

Panama City Beach is NEW & IMPROVED. It has something for everybody-- beach, sport, relax, restaurants, shopping, clubs, zoo, aquarium, cruises, museums, etc. Gulf Highlands is a family resort with many amenities (tennis, mini-golf, shuffleboard, 11 pools, private Beach Club, Wi-fi) and activities right on site at no additional charge. It is centrally located in the heart of PCB and right across the street from the beach.

What makes this townhome unique

It’s home away from home. Our condo is recently remodeled and is furnished with two new flat screen TVs, cable (including HBO), sport and beach equipment, comfortable beds, new linens, towels, covers, pillows, and new appliances. It has two bedrooms, balcony, patio for grilling, beautiful view of a lake and ocean surrounded with typical Florida landscaping. We also offer pack and play for the youngest ones. You have many amenities offered at no extra charge and beach is right across the street. The convenience of pulling up to your front door to your two private parking spots and no elevators to deal with is priceless especially when you pack up your family for vacation. For extra security, Gulf Highlands is in the gated community. When you add it all up you have a whole house at much better price than in any hotel on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just want to let you know that yes we will be staying at your condo again. It is a very lovely unit. And I am sorry that I forgot to mention to you about how comfortable the beds were. I could tell right away that the mattress in the master bedroom amazing. I have had 5 back surgeries so I am a little picky about my bed and I slept very comfortably.

Mrs. Anna was the best owner we've rented from yet. We had one small problem when we first arrived and she got it solved right away. The place is absolutely wonderful. Like the little community. Would defiantly recommend.

Perfect family location- felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED our stay here! We have 5 children ranging in age from 17 to 6, and being here was perfect for everyone; close enough to the beach I felt safe letting the older boys go without us, yet removed enough to provide a nice retreat from the downtown busy/crowds/party atmosphere. Our girls loved the pools too because they were never crowded. The little pond right in back provided entertainment for the kids while we made dinner; they got to play with turtles, had a heron hang out and could catch/release fish. Anna is wonderful - so attentive and checked in with us many times. It felt like we stayed at a "friend's" place. She was very accommodating. You can't beat this place-Highly recommend!

Fantastic Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful little home next to all of the fun, however hidden from the commercialism of a tourist city. This home is aweomse and the community where it is located is great as well. Between the pools, mini golf course and the lagoon where my kids got to feed turtles we were so busy exploring we kept are vacation budget well under what we planned to spend! Clean, comfy and fully supplied kitchen this was one of our faviorte places to stay and we have traveled the world! Quite happy here :) The homeowner was amazing as well and was so helpful!! Staying here is highly recommended!!

Clean, close to the beach and nice pools.

  • 5 of 5

This unit was great and the owner was fabulous to work with. A five minute walk to the beach front pool. Great cafe at the beach pool, brand new lounge chairs. Pools and mini golf course in the complex were nice and well maintained. Unit was spacious, clean and quiet. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Panama City.
