'SunKissed' is a 5-Star panoramic ocean view gated beach property located in a quiet area ½ way between the main attractions of Pier Park and Rosemary Beach. 'SunKissed' allows families and adult groups over 30 (no youth groups) to stretch out and enjoy the spacious home’s four floors of accommodations.

'SunKissed by the Sea' embodies the epitome of style and design. The ground floor blends the ambiance of indoor and outdoor living; 60'' flat screen TV, granite counter tops, gas/charcoal/smoker grills with dining seating for 20; a private saltwater pool with features complete the enclosed courtyard. Evening entertainment is perfected with outdoor mood lighting.

A Brazilian cherry and ornamental iron stairway (or the elevator) leads to SunKissed's second level. The spacious master bedroom with a king, futon and wet bar has a 20 ft. glass wall that opens to a large covered balcony. The second bedroom has two queen beds, a full bath and walk-in closet. Bedroom three is a master style with a king bed, sitting area, full bath and walk-in closet. These share a balcony overlooking the pool and walled courtyard; all with large flat screen TVs.

Awaiting SunKissed’s third floor is “WOW!” From every direction the ocean view dominates. An open floor plan with a black granite island (seats 8) and honey golden onyx gourmet kitchen flow into two separate seating areas separated by dining for 12, all opening to two ocean view balconies. Two flat screen TV’s, another wet bar and master bedroom and bath with a California King bed (extra long) and balcony finish off the third before you ascend the spiral stairs or elevator to the 4th.

The view from the 4th’s reading and relaxing area complements the bunk room (sleeps 6) and is a very colorful and fun eclectic environment!

You won't want to leave SunKissed once you arrive. Enjoy the sunset or morning coffee on the balconies viewing the ocean's majestic beauty, and SunKissed's inviting charm and fine accouterments. Perfect for couple retreats or reunions of families and friends of discriminating taste, and the perfect escape for quiet time with the family or corporate getaways where hospitality in an intimate environment is a must!

Walk out the front door and stroll two-three minutes to the beach. No long elevator waits or the crowds of a high rise. Welcome to a real vacation.

About The Owner

We are from the greater Nashville, TN area and enjoy our 5 children and our time at the beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Panama City Beach Area

We love the most beautiful beaches in America and the Southern hospitality and endless activity of the Panama City Beach area. The gated community provides a safe and secure low traffic area.

What makes this house unique

Your beach time will be shorter because you won't want to leave the home. The layout gives such variety to get together for large groups or spread out for privacy.

Great Vacation Home for the Whole Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay immensely. The house is big enough for everyone to spread out. Yet, with the elevator, it's comfortable for even those whose knees don't always cooperate with stairs. We chose this particular home due to the number of bedrooms, baths, beach/pool chairs & the spaces for gathering as a family. Our group of 12 could visit easily in the downstairs sitting area & also enjoy a meal around the long table on the 3rd floor.

One couple especially enjoyed the house pool. The rest of us had great fun at the beach which is just a short walk away. Beach umbrellas & chairs can be rented the day before you will use them . We usually carried some chairs from the house. The rolling coolers are great for carrying lunch & cold drinks gulf side.

Gary Adkins is an excellent communicator. We found him to respond to email & texts in a very timely manner. The housekeeping staff does a great job of cleaning.

House was awsome. Lots of room never felt like you were on top of each other. The view from the kitchen you can't explain. We had a group of 4 couples 4 single adults and 3 children. Everyone had there own space and privacy. Would definantly stay there again. We never used the pool because we went to the beach everyday and just used the one on the beach. Owner was very nice to talk too and would recommend to everyone.

This was an exceptional home. The owner, Gary is very personable. He wanted to make sure everything was what it needed to be weeks before my trip, week of my trip, and the day of the trip. The house was wonderful we could not have asked for anything more. Gary said not to bring anything other than your clothes and food and he was right. He made sure every need that you have is taken care of in that house.. the beach was accessible right across the street from where we were staying with its own private entrance. My family and I will be going back. I have to say thank you so much to Gary at his family

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time on our vacation. Sunkissed is a beautiful well furnished home. The water was crystal clear and very calm. The location is very good-easy to get to everything , but you are not in the high traffic area. The home is very private and each kitchen is well equipped. The owners are very easy to work with. You won't be sorry you rented this wonderfully decorated home.

Great Vacation, Excellent Host

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in panama city beach and at sunkissed in particular.

We have typically spent our beach vacations in the Cayman Islands due to the calm waters and colorful ocean life for our beach vacations and I was a little hesitant to head to Florida Panhandle instead. But some friends of ours convinced us it would be a great place to take the kids and this property came highly recommended by friends that had stayed prior. I have to say I was very impressed. Both with the beach and surrounding activities as well as the property and its amenities.

We have three young kids that are very active, and there were plenty of opportunities for us to explore the area and find lots of activities to keep us all entertained. It helped that we went during a shoulder period when most of the southern schools were in session so the beaches were not that crowded, but it seems that the stretch of beach near this property probably doesn't ever get that crowded. The beaches were pristine with super calm water, and a very easy walk across the street to get there. The house had more than enough room and was spectacularly furnished and equipped. We easily could have fit a couple of other families in the house and slept comfortably. The pool in the back was a lot of fun for the kids and provided a good respite from the beach when the adults want to just hang at home. And the kitchen was fabulous and allowed us to cook a lot of the meals at home and save a ton of money.

This property would be great for a grandparents, and although we didn't use the elevator, it seems like it would be ideal for older and less mobile persons to get to the main third floor. I commend Mr. Adkins and the host on a job well done on the place. It is apparent that they put a lot of care into the property and it is a personal residence (second home) not just a rental property.

We look forward to our return trip to Panama City beach. And hope to have the opportunity to rent Sunkissed again!

SunKissed Gated Beach Resort Rental

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation home for family or friends. Beautifully decorated!!! The wide open living, kitchen and dining areas were perfect for our family gatherings and had the added benefit of hugh glass doors that opened onto the deck. In fact, we loved our early morning coffee and late evening wine on that deck. Both kitchens were very well equipped with all the conveniences of home. The gated home, pool and beach area was an added bonus for privacy and security day or night. Shopping and good restaurants were nearby and convenient. We give it a five star recommendation!!!! Loved our stay and we will return!!!
