About Angela & Jay

Angela & Jay: Live in the Atlanta Area - We are avid Motorcycle nuts...Angela rides a VTX-1300 and Jay rides a Goldwing. We love to travel and have visited most of Europe, parts of the middle East and much of the US

Together we have 5 children and 1 Diva Dog, still planning to travel. Maybe we will see you on the road...just watch out for Bikers, it could be us on the road to PCB Bike Week!

Angela & Jay purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Angela & Jay chose Panama City Beach

Having visited Gulf Highlands years ago during Thunder Beach Bike Week we fell in love with the area and the property that was so well maintained. We found Gulf Highlands centrally located to so many local attractions and Restaurants. Some years later friends from Atlanta moved to Gulf Highlands and we re-visited with the decision to locate a Beach Home. Having now spent more time in PCB and witnessing the lifestyle has made this decision all the more favorable. We think you will find as we have that the area, the people and the Beach setting around Gulf Highlands will steal your soul and provide just the refreshment you desire.

What makes this townhome unique

Beach and Pool! It's what you're here for! The pool is literally just outside the front door of our Townhome...You can watch your kids at the Pool from 'Inside the Unit'! The Beach and Beach Club is a mere 5 minute walk. There's so much for the kids to do around Gulf Highlands and everything is so close by...but don't forget all the great Seafood! Do yourself a favor and Stop off at "Bayou on the Beach" for $1 PBR and 1/2 price Oysters during Happy Hour...they're located just outside the main gate or get in the car to "Dusty's" where most of the locals go, it's just plain fun! Stop by Pier Park and spend the day or evening...there's so much to do there. Walk out to the beach and see 'Dog Park', watch the dogs play in the's a hoot! You can spend weeks here in PCB and never see it all. So, grab a cold beer, kick back, use some sunblock and enjoy the view from the pool or Gulf Highlands Beach Club! You came to the right place....

Very good for the price. It would be a good idea to put a second full size bed in the guest bedroom.

We enjoyed our short stay in Gulf Highlands. Only thing we experienced was the air condition seemed to struggle to cool during hottest part of the day but wasn't unbearable. May need to get it serviced. But regardless we had so much fun and loved tennis courts and pool just outside our door. Walk to beach wasn't bad. Do recommend golf cart or at least beach buggy to pull items to beach due to walk.

The home was beautiful and owners were absolutely wonderful to work with! The property was great-tennis, shuffleboard and pool right out our front door. Putt putt was a short walk. The property is quiet and well maintained. Short walk to the beach. Will definitely stay again if we are in the area!
