The master bedroom has a private bathroom, the 2nd bathroom is next to the bunk room. The well equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar, and allows the chef to take in the outside view from a command position while cooking or entertaining.

This area offers the finest shopping, dining, and entertainment experiences in Panama City Beach, and more shops are on the way. It is only minutes from the new airport, and shuttle service is available. Trolley service is also available along the beach. For days when you are too tired to dine inside or go out to a restaurant, there are several carryout options within a couple blocks. There is also a snack bar and wine bar on the pool deck. The unique curved shape of the south facing rear of the building enhances the comfort of the pool deck during the winter months.

We are pleased to invite you to experience one of the nicest condos in the area. Enjoy long walks or jogs on the powdery white beach sand, or exercise in the fitness center while looking at the ocean and watching for dolphins. Swim in the infinity pool, or relax in the Jacuzzi.

About Mike Farrell

I grew up in the Midwest and have been vacationing in Panama City Beach for 25 years. My wife is from Quebec, and she too enjoys the natural beauty of the area. Each time we visit we truly relax and reconnect. Watching dolphins, stingrays, fish, and even a manatee from our balcony is always exciting! We both love this area so much that we married on the beach at nearby St. Andrews Park.

Mike Farrell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mike Farrell chose Lakeside By The Gulf

This complex has a comfortable feel from the moment you enter the lobby. It has all the amenities, it is fresh and inviting, it is nearby the main attractions, and it gets better each time we visit.

What makes this condo unique

We love having the grill on the balcony as we often dine in. You just can't beat the view of the ocean, pool, and beach while you are enjoying a barbeque! You feel on top of the world!

Our Stay In the Penthouse!

  • 4 of 5

What an awesome view form the top floor, The weather was beautiful. We only had one day that it rained all day but we really needed a break from the Sun to do some other things. What a culture shock coming back to Kentucky to find it snowing and the ground covered and so cold. If I only had one complaint it would be the water pressure lacked something to be desired, other than that it was a wonderful week. Thanks Mike for making sure we had everything we needed for the week in your very comfortable Condo.

Owner's Response: Marlene - I am very happy your family had a wonderful vacation! A lot of travelers have had enough of winter, and what an unusual weather pattern for Kentucky. I will investigate the water pressure as it should be fine. Thanks for your stay, and hope you can come back soon. Mike

Beautiful view. Owners came to the rescue whenever we needed them.

  • 4 of 5

The view was beautiful. the condo was clean and comfortable.Close to Pier Park and the Pier. We watched the fire works from the deck and they were wonderful. The recliners leave a little bit to be desired. They were way to low for a 78 year old Man and a wife with M.S. There were plenty of dishes and pots and pans. Thanks Mike and Louise for a nice two month stay.

Owner's Response: Bob - Thank you for your candid review. It was a pleasure hosting you and Beverly, and I am very glad you enjoyed your stay! I am also thankful that you reached out to me when the TV did not receive all cable channels. The system at the condo was just upgraded, and "rescuing" you to get all channels was a pleasure. This situation is being addressed for all units in the condominium as we all want our guests comfortable. After your departure, simple instructions were placed on the TV guide should this occur again before being resolved by the cable provider. As you know, my wife and I try our best to ensure guest comfort. The chairs were purchased last year as an upgrade to the condo. We like the fact that they swivel, rock, and recline. I can understand how you would prefer that the seat height would be higher than standard. I am very sympathetic to Beverly's MS situation as my wife also has MS. In hindsight, I wish you would have mentioned the chair height during your stay as I would have attempted to raise them for you. We wish you both a wonderful summer and future travel! We are inspired by Beverly's spirit of "keep on going". Mike

Had a nice relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at this condo over the holidays. Our goal was to rest and relax, and that is exactly what we did. Mike the owner was quick to answer our questions via email or text. We were able to access the property easily with the code provided and reset it to our own code to use for the rest of our stay. The shopping carts that are provided by Sterling Breeze to carry things to the condo are great, much better than the typical luggage cart.

The condo is as pictured and was very clean. Trash bags, bar soap, dish soap (hand wash and dishwasher), and laundry detergent pods were provided along with the normal starter supply of toilet paper and paper towels. The kitchen was well equipped to allow us to prepare many meals at home. We loved having the grill on the balcony and used it on several occasions.

We saw many stingrays from the balcony and one morning I think it was a dolphin I watched jumping around in the surf. Each day there was a beautiful sunset to watch from the balcony as well. On New Year’s Eve we watched fireworks from the balcony and cheered along with our neighbors.

We had a nice relaxing stay and I recommend this property to anyone looking to do the same.

This condo was excellent! Equipped with everything you need and a little more. Bring binoculars because you will see so many neat things from the balcony. I suggest using the grill, it is awesome. There's not one thing negative thing I can say about our stay. If you have any questions, Mike will text you back quickly. We had no issues at all. Perfect. We will, without a doubt, be back.

Owner's Response: Lacey - I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay and wish to come back! It's really not a complicated theory on my part - equip and maintain the condo as if I were staying there myself. I understand that while you are on vacation you want a nice overall experience. I have spent much of my life in the "fun" business, and comments like yours are what I strive for. Thank you for sharing them. The balcony views and grill experience are fantastic memories for me too! I look forward to hosting you again. Mike
