We have owned several different units at Top of the Gulf. This is one we have wanted for some time. Now we have all our units on the ground floor in the same complex.

CAROLYN JORDAN purchased this studio in 2016

Why CAROLYN JORDAN chose Panama City Beach

We love Top of the Gulf and have owned off and on for the last 20 years.

This was our first trip to the beach during October and it was wonderful. The studio unit was perfect for the two of us. The owners were very accessible and great to work with.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 nights at this condo and had a top notch experience. It was beautifully decorated and steps from the beach. The condo is located in a quiet area so the beach was never crowded. The hosts were also very accessible and helpful. I would definitely recommend for an affordable beach getaway.

Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed in this studio for 4 nights and we loved it. It is so well decorated and has everything you need (including a keurig and variety of coffee provided - we LOVED that!). Full kitchen with all the supplies you need and even a dishwasher. The back porch faces the ocean and only a few steps to the pool. The beach chairs being included was awesome and the staff was extremely friendly. The owners make sure you have all the information you need for a smooth arrival and departure. Top of the Gulf is a very central location on South Thomas Drive and within walking distance to many of the attractions/restaurants. I highly recommend staying here and hope to return in the future!

The condo itself was excellent!

  • 4 of 5

The property needed some updating and we were disappointed with the way the beach looked. There was a lot of garbage on the beach which we have never seen before. and we have been to Panama City Beach quite a bit. Overall, we had a great time though.
