About The Owner

My Mother and I purchased this condo after going to Top of the Gulf to visit my 2 sisters. My sister later purchased half of the unit from my Mother in 2017. Long story short, my sister and I are co-owners of Unit 801 at TOG,

The Owner purchased this studio in 2011

Why The Owner chose Florida North West

The complex is great for families. The board has an excellent group of folks who volunteer tirelessly to make sure the interest of the unit owners are well represented.

What makes this studio unique

It has a great family atmosphere.

Perfect for what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

A lot of people have given bad reviews of this property, but our condo was nice and clean. We knew what we booked and were pleased with it. We spent very little time in the room anyway, so all we wanted was a nice clean place to sleep!! And it's the perfect location as the beach was never overcrowded!! We had a wonderful vacation!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo during July 4th weekend/week. The condo was perfect for the 2 of us. It had everything we needed. Plus it came with 2 beach chairs and umbrella which was a major plus. Cyndi and Allen were quick when getting back to you if you had any questions. The only thing I will complain about were that the elevators, which are 2, stayed broke the whole time we were there. But that wasn't an issue with the condo, just the place in general. Overal, we had a blast!!! We will definitely rent this place again. Another plus is that we always trailer our motorcycle behind the truck so we can just park it and ride the motorcycle. Top of the Gulf allows you to do this, just have to pay for 3 parking passes. But it's better than having to find somewhere to park your trailer. Thanks again Allen and Cyndi for all your help through the rental process and we absolutely enjoyed staying in your condo.
