Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are retired and currently reside in the North-West Georgia Mountains. We purchased a vacation home at Gulf Crest in 2009 and I am currently President of the Gulf Crest Homeowners Association Board of Directors. We recently purchased a second Condo at Gulf Crest because we believe it is one of the best properties on the Beach.

Why the Owner Chose Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
Location, Amenities, Staff

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Easy access to all areas of the beach without all the traffic jams. Fantastic 300 feet of beach front to enjoy. Seldom crowded. 2 Huge Pools (1 Heated in Winter), 2 Hot Tubs, and a Kiddy pool.
