Property description

You can see the ocean from your room. You don’t have to walk out of your room to view it.
Although there is no balcony which is why you pay a little less to stay here you can open the window and take in the ocean breeze and hear the waves.
You are only on the second floor with a view of pool and ocean. You are not on 18th floor for this price.
You walk down one flight of stairs and you are steps away from the pool on your way to the beach.
You get two chairs and an umbrella from the beach service for free for your stay. How awesome is that?
There are stores nearby with everything you may need.
The unit has everything you need. Wi Fi is free.
Management office AND the laundry room are on the same floor on the way to your stairs one flight down to the pool.
You can walk or bike ride or even free shuttle to major stores and to Pier Park. 24 hour Wal-Mart 1 mile away.
It’s the kind of place where memories are made. It’s charming compared to the mega structures. Your parking lot is just outside. Not off of elevator 3 on level 2 orange section c. No long elevator wait times here just good times.
So come and stay at a peaceful get away at Top of the Gulf unit A205. Sea you there.

Please note: While doing your research on the Top of the Gulf whether it’s VRBO etc. please realize that each unit or set of units can be owned by anyone other than me and should not be a reflection on my unit at all. My unit is A205 and if you read reviews about other units in the complex that is only for their unit and not mine. Please read from the people who have experienced A205 at Top of the Gulf 8817 Thomas Drive Panama City Beach FL. Thank you.

This is a privately owned condo. Your experience will vary based on whose condo you stay in. The complex had renovations performed over 2013 year and everything looks fresh and new but again fellow reviewers point this out and it was unfortunate for them at that time but not for you. This unit is fully renovated with all NEW everything. I mean everything except the doors and windows and tub.

About: I am the sole owner of this property.

Why Thomas Drive, Panama City Beach, FL, USA:
Why not? There are a 1000 choices and price ranges to choose from but the value is exceptional in that you get a nice modern and all new household to stay in where you have all of the basics covered just as the high rise down the street but without paying for amenities you will not be using for the amount you are paying. Save that to go out to eat a nice dinner. Why pay a lot and then have to cook spaghetti? Just joking but I think you get my point. Clean, On the Beach, Convenient to all locations.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Only one flight down the stairs to your beach, your pool and your parking. From your room you can view the water and the beach. Don't deal with parking decks and elevator wait times. Just walk and never stop until you reach wherever you want to go.
