Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
As our perfect vacation spot, we decided that one day we will retire here. We enjoy every minute we are fortunate enough to spend here in the Dunes. I was born very close to the east coast and we always vacationed there, however when I first came to PCB in 1982 I absolutely feel in love with the sugar white sands and the people and decided this was going to be my retirement home along with my vacation spot. 15 years later I bought my first condo here and my family relocated here in 2005. That is a great testimony to our love for this area and why providing our condos for others to rent does provide us with great pleasure because we know our guests will have a fantastic vacation.
Tony purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Tony chose Gulf Lagoon Beach
Dunes of Panama (DOP) offers the most beach frontage on Panama City Beach at 1500 feet of Sugar White Sands. We believe Thomas Drive is the absolute best area for beach visiting. DOP is a very laid back, family friendly condo association that is sure to satisfy your every need. This area on Thomas Drive is sheltered from the hectic traffic and has quick access to shopping, entertainment and restaurants. Come see why one of our Dunes condos just may be your perfect vacation choice.

The unit was not clean and falling apart. Contacted owner, he said would refund money but didn’t.
We contacted the owner to let him know we had some issues with the condo. We arrived at about 5 pm and still not heard from the owner on how to get into the condo and which condo unit or any other information. I text owner at 4pm but didn’t hear from him. Text again at 5pm and had to wait in parking lot to hear from him about how to get into his condo. When we got into unit it was dirty. Floors made mud when we spilled some water on kitchen tile. Made our feet black. Closet doors were broken and dusty. Floors sandy, furniture scratched, ceiling peeling, outdoor furniture rusty, master bathroom was not pictured and very tiny and had mildew on ceiling and door and in corners. We were trying to make the best of it but decided to call the owner to see if he could get someone to clean. The owner told us to just leave and text him when we were out and he would give us our money back. This was at 7-8pm at night. I had my elderly mom and daughter with me and very tired after a long day of travel. We had no where to go. I guess he thought we should leave at that moment but had already unpacked groceries and lugged in all our belongings. We stayed the night and left the next day early. The owner charged us for one night plus fees which included a CLEANING FEE!!! And his per night fee is very high was not what this place is worth! I am just sick about having to pay what we did for just 14 hours. The owner should be charging much less for this unit even if it were cleaned properly. We ultimately found another condo in same area that was beautiful, spacious, clean and allowed our dog for $10 less/night. The owner needs to reassess his fees and visit the place himself. He did ask for pictures and a description of what our issuers were. I did text him the pics and issues but he still charged us for one night plus fees and cleaning . We wasted a day of our short vacation because we could not check into new unit at another location until 4pm. I do not recommend staying here.
Exactly what we needed!!!!
Tony was an amazing host, made sure we had everything we needed. Answered any questions we had about the area. But most of all we were able to bring our fur babies with us and they enjoyed their week stay at the beach. Excellent location right next to the dog walk for the babies. Just down the stairs and sidewalk to the beach or across the walkway to the pool. We look forward to another stay there!
Angie & Steve
Property is NOT as pictured. Unit was filthy so our first trip was to Walmart for cleaning supplies! Had to clean floors twice to get black gunk off. Also had to clean bathrooms, bed linens, and towels and washcloths (questionable stains requiring disinfectant). Used chewing tobacco left on nightstand in guest room along with a sticky substance down wall and on floor in guest room. We were delayed getting into unit by the “cleaning” staff. Not sure what they were doing because it certainly wasn’t cleaning! Living room had feathers from a pillow strewn on the floor and under sofa and entertainment center. It would be nice if our cleaning fee was refunded! Furniture (beds, sofa and armless chairs) VERY uncomfortable. Seating only for 4 adults “un-comfortably”. Unit is very outdated.
Beware, you are renting on a PUBLIC beach - not very clean.
Pros for unit:
1- Owner allowed our large dogs with a $300 non-refundable pet deposit. Our dogs are more well behaved than most children and cleaner than most people. We had to clean before we allowed our dogs in the unit!!!
2- Good parking.
3- nice amenities (pools, beach access)
4- beach service
5- staff was courteous (guard stand personnel)
I’m sure owner will say we should have contacted him about the issues while we were there but why would I want the same “cleaning” crew back that didn’t clean before we arrived! In addition, I’m sure he wasn’t prepared to replace all the furniture and repaint the unit!
Amazing Pet Friendly Resort
Tony was a wonderful host. He's the only person that we have ever rented from who bothered to text and make sure that everything was well, before we arrived. He sent me the code to get in and told us that our parking passes were in the condo. The resort itself was set up perfectly. We were just a short walk from the beach and the pool was right next to the beach. We also loved that it was very pet friendly and we were able to take our fur girls with us this time. We loved it so much that we will be back in 3 weeks.
Fabulous location and condo!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo!! Very convenient location on first level with direct access to the beach only a few feet away!
This place is awesome! My family and I love this condo! We have rented this one, and another unit owned by Tony, for the past 3 summers and I can tell you that it's been a wonderful experience! The best part is we can bring my fur baby with us! You can't beat the condo for the price and location!
