About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

This bright and cheery beach condo is the perfect home base for your next family or friend getaway. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms give room for up to eight guests and one small pet!

Panama City Beach proper is just a few miles away for shopping, dining, and attractions, and - even better - the beach is just steps away from your condo! Staying in Gulf Gate Estate also gives you access to a relaxing community pool.

Sit down at the beautiful dining room table for six to enjoy a delicious meal prepared in the full kitchen complete with an oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, and more.

After dinner, spend a quiet night in cozied up on the sofa or love seat with a movie on the flatscreen TV and DVD player. WiFi is also included so you can stream movies or shows.

All eight guests have a place to lay their heads at night with the sofabed, king bed, queen bed, and two twins between the three bedrooms. The master bedroom also boasts access to the balcony and an attached full bathroom.

A second full bathroom is available through the hallway, along with a washer and dryer. If you decide to bring along two small dogs (of up to 25 pounds), please keep in mind there is a required pet fee.

Between the beach steps away and the sparkling pool, you may be happy to stay in the area during your getaway. If you choose to explore, you'll find that Panama City Beach has plenty of attractions and beautiful areas to explore. Shipwreck Island Water Park is within four miles, and Ripley's Believe It or Not, Wonderworks, and plenty of tasty eateries are just two miles away.

For a fantastic Gulf getaway, book this charming condo.

About Vacasa of the Emerald Coast

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family���s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Beautiful view and large roomy condo

I loved all the space. We had plenty of room and a nice view from the deck. It was exactly what we were looking for.

Great Get Away

  • 4 of 5

The unit is definitely dated and needs a makeover, but we didn't go for the decor. After a rough summer, my daughter, granddaughters and I needed a get away. The unit met all our needs of shelter and cleanliness. The VACASA staff person on the phone talked me through the cable system to be able to use the TV very quickly.

Specific for this unit, the cable is basic cable. If you want more options, bring or plan to rent movies. If you require a very modern, updated space with all new appliances, etc., this is not the unit for you. If you are satisfied with a space with plenty of room for the family and don't mind if the bathroom medicine cabinet was made in the 1990's it's a good unit. VACASA is good about having the basics of dishwashing (including a couple automatic dishwashing tablets), laundry (3 laundry pods) and hotel type toiletries to get you started.

As for the property, this is the 6th unit I or my family members have rented in the past couple years. Proximity to the beach is wonderful. We had very off and on rain, some without thunder and lightning. We were able to go down to the beach most times we

wanted to and then retire to the pool when the rain began as long as there was no lightning. As the pool is mostly undercover, we were able to bring our things up from the beach and keep them dry while we swam.

The only consistent complaint I have with this property, that is totally out of the hands of VACASA, is that it should not advertise a "heated pool". The only area that has ever felt heated is the couple of feet of the deep end that is not covered and has sun access. This stay, in the summer, this wasn't so bad as we could go out on the beach, get hot and then jump in. The past times have all been in December and the temperature of the pool was so cold as to make it unusable. My mother and cousin with arthritis had been looking forward to time in a heated pool and were unable to use it. The onsite company that manages other units seems completely careless about this issue and the discomfort it causes the guests..
