About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Gulf Crest, Panama City Beach, Florida. Located in the exclusive, less congested, Thomas Drive area, directly on the pristine Gulf of Mexico.

'Custom' designed and professionally decorated, GULF FRONT condominium with spectacular views and breathtaking sunsets. The one and only condominium in Gulf Crest with a garden tub in the master bath, larger dining area, larger secondary bedroom, and the bunk beds built in the third bedroom (along with twin beds) instead of being located in a closet in the dining area.

Condominium has three bedrooms, two baths, king-size beds in two bedrooms, and twin beds PLUS built-in extra-long bunk beds in the third bedroom. The condominium sleeps eight in bedrooms in addition to a sleeper sofa.

This Gulf Crest, 17th floor, West side condominium allows for the ultimate vacation experience. The condominium is 1801 square feet with a 750-square-foot, wrap around balcony. From this vantage point, you can view the sunsets with hues of orange and purple as a nightly event. You can see miles down the beach at the blue-green waters and sugar-white sand. You must see the views for yourself as they are indescribable and a camera does not do them justice.

The living room and dining room are all furnished with custom 'Capri' furniture and a large screen television. You will find a palm theme in the master bedroom along with Tommy Bahama furniture, a king-size bed, and a 30-inch LCD TV wall mounted. The master bath has the only garden tub in Gulf Crest. The second bedroom has a Key West parrot theme, a king-size bed, and a LCD TV. The third bedroom is the surfers room.

There are two twin beds AND built-in, extra-long bunk beds. We did not want to have our special guests sleep in bunk beds in a closet in the living area. This condominium has a redesigned master bath to allow for the garden tub. A redesigned dining area to allow more space for the table area.

A redesigned second bedroom to allow space for a king-size bed, and a redesigned room to allow room to build in the bunk beds. It was also redesigned to allow for doors to be installed providing privacy to the secondary bedrooms from the living areas. Laundry room with washer and dryer.

Amenities include two pools (one heated), a separate kiddy pool, two outdoor heated spas, fitness room, game room, owners' lounge with billiard table, two gazebos, free covered parking, free unlimited local calls, cable with HBO, dune walk-over that accommodates the handicap, WIRELESS INTERNET (this unit), and three high-speed elevators.

Beach activities on site or nearby include jet skiing, parasailing, banana boat rides, and volleyball.

Within walking distance is Spinnakers, Hammerhead Freds, bumper boats, go carts, Emerald Falls Water Park, miniature golf, amusement park, and scooter rentals.

This condominium was not furnished to be a rental unit, but rather, it was intended to be a home and was furnished and designed accordingly down to the cabinet knobs. There is premium quality dishware and crystal along with everyday china and glasses. (Definitely NOT a rental package condominium.)

The condominium has a tile floor with area rugs and a kitchen with beautiful granite countertops. Custom etched glass double doors have been installed to separate the secondary bedrooms from the living area. This condominium is NOT your norm.

Only steps to the world's most beautiful beaches, Gulf Crest provides the relaxation you deserve. Our unit provides the views you have seen on the 'Life of the Rich and Famous.' These accommodations will make you feel like a queen and king. You will not be disappointed!

Please call for monthly rates. Rentals with a five-day minimum will be considered. Rates include cleaning, tax, broadband internet, and local calls.

Note: Until confirmed, rates are subject to change without notice.

This is a NO SMOKING/NO PETS Condominium!

You are a telephone call away from your ULTIMATE VACATION.

About Danielle Tharpe

My husband and I are the original owners of our unit at Gulf Crest. We purchased Gulf Crest when we walked on the construction site and saw the fabulous view. My husband and I had been looking for a condo and once we saw the floor plan, the view, and the location of Gulf Crest we knew we had found our second home. Not only is there direct Gulf view but a fabulous view for miles down the beach out the wall of side windows.

Why Danielle Tharpe chose Panama City Beach

My husband and I chose to purchase a condo at Gulf Crest so that we would be located at the less conjested area of the beach. Gulf Crest is within walking distance to dining, dancing, and family activities. The less conjested Thomas Drive location allows access to resturants and shopping without sitting in the Front Beach traffic. Gulf Crest is a wonderful place for a fabulous vacation.

What makes this condo unique

View - View - View. Walking distance to dining, dancing, and activies. Wonderful owners lounge with pool table.

Everything you need in one place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you needed was on site! The views were spectacular! So much Marine life to see every day! If you want a change from swimming on the soft white sand beaches and ocean there were two huge swimming pools and a jacuzzi to move to. Loved the Tiki Bar. Great selection of drinks and food! In fact huge improvement over previous years. We've been staying here every year for more than a decade and never been disappointed.

Great Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was AWESOME!! It was clean, ready for us, and made us feel at home. We had such a wonderful time and were so very comfortable!! We will attempt to stay here each year as the condo was perfect!! It is close to everything!!

The three bedrooms were perfect, and being able to be in the kitchen and look at the gorgeous scenery was over the top!! Actually being anywhere in the condo and looking out the beautiful windows, and of course the fabulous wrap around balcony, just made you feel like you never wanted to leave! If we had any questions, the owner's responded back to us in minutes, but there weren't many questions, everything was fabulous!!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!!
