About Paula and Doug Norris

My husband Doug, my daughter Madison, and I (Paula) love Panama City Beach! Growing up in Georgia my family would come to Panama City Beach every year. So when I met Doug (he grew up in Las Vegas, NV) I had to take him to the world's most beautiful beaches of the gulf of Mexico and he loved it also. He couldn't believe it had white sand and the water is warm from about April thru October. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Paula and Doug Norris purchased this condo in 2015

Why Paula and Doug Norris chose Panama City Beach

We love that the Top of the gulf is right on the ocean. You don't even have to get out of the bed to see the beautiful ocean view! Close to attractions, shopping and our favorite restaurants! The complex is clean and well kept.

What makes this condo unique

The Complex is small and family friendly. Its is also walking distance to the major night clubs if you want to go but far enough away if you don't. It has common area balconies or you can just open your window and enjoy the breeze! Plenty of lounge chairs by the pool and also a kiddie pool.

Great beach get away!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely decor, we really loved it, was what we expected. The morning we left the code stopped working. Had we walked on the beach or both went to our car we would have been locked out. Check out time was 10 am the code did not work at 7 am. Suggest more hangers in foyer for beach towels and swim wear. We really enjoyed having the beach chairs included. Would be nice if they would leave the pads and umbrellas out a little closer to the sunset. Ours were removed by 4:15. Over all a lovely visit. We did notice sand on the floor of the unit when we arrived. (Not too bad) Maybe a little better vacuum cleaner would remove all the sand. The ocean was clear and clean the pool was nice and the place was clean. Over all we had a wonderful visit and would rent from you again. Next time maybe a little higher up.
