Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our 'home-away-from-home' welcomes you with at-the-door parking -- no waiting on slow, high-rise elevators here! You would pay more, get less in a hotel w/ kitchenette for more per night PLUS the FL tax atop that!!! This is a town home!!!!!! And now high speed internet access....

You enter into the full kitchen with all the luxuries of home (blender, toaster, coffee maker, and microwave) with a four-seat breakfast bar. The oversized dining room table seats six comfortably. A fold-out, queen-size (and comfortable) sofa is also downstairs, just next to the half bathroom.

Outside, a quiet canal from the private patio can be enjoyed at sunrise with a cup of coffee or at sunset after a long day on the beach. Also available on the patio is a gas grill for your catch of the day.

Upstairs is a full-sized washer and dryer. Each bedroom upstairs has its own full bath, queen-size bed, and ceiling fan and hairdryers. Optimally, it would sleep 6 adults (2 in each bedroom, 2 on the fold-out couch). Both bedrooms have TV with cable.

Our condominium is a five-minute walk to the Gulf where you can relax at the pool/cabana situated on the Gulf of Mexico. This is one of eleven pools on the 24-hour, gated/guarded property. On the grounds are putt-putt, a weight room, tennis and shuffleboard. Grocery stores, cinemas, shopping (Super Wal-Mart), amusement parks and restaurants close by.

Popular Seaside, Florida (The Truman Show) is a 25-minute drive. Ebro dog racetracks and airboat rides are 25-30 minutes away.

Come and create your own memories as our family has at one of the 'World's Most Beautiful Beaches' on the Emerald Coast of Panama City, FL. Please ...this is a non-smoking, no pet townhouse. You must be 25 years or older to rent, as this is a family-oriented property.

Keywords: Drive up (non highrise) in a condo gated community.

About Vicki Molnar

My husband Mac Molnar and I (Vicki) and our three daughters live in Columbus, Georgia. Mac and I both grew up taking family vacations to Panama City Beach. Some of our favorite childhood memories were made there. When we wanted a place to get away for the weekends it was only natural for us to look in PCB. We discovered Gulf Highlands and liked it so much that we now have purchased two units. It is just right for us. Hope you like it too.

Vicki Molnar purchased this condo in 2011

Best VRBO we have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO and Home away on most of our trips. I have to say, hands down, this was the best one we have ever stayed in. When we walked in we were met with a beautifully decorated home that had all the furnishing to make it home. It was so nice to have 2 and half baths! Vicki supplies so many extras that you take for granted. There were plenty of towels, sheets, blankets, and kitchen accessories that we thought we were at home.

The house has been updated on the main floor is BEAUTIFUL. There is a pool right across the street and easy for the kids to play. The mini golf is just one unit away and lots of fun. It is nice being at the end of the complex. It was very quiet.

My husband has already said it is ok to book this room again for next year! If you are looking for a great place, look no farther!

Will Return!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here in July 2014. Very comfy! Clean! Kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes/cooking items. Great location! One of the pools was just across the yard, which my teenagers loved.

Vicki is very responsive and pleasure to work with, especially since this was the first time that I had used VRBO and rented a property. If we ever come back to PCB, will definitely keep this place in mind.

Will Return!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! Fully stocked kitchen. Felt like home. We will be visiting PCB again and I will not have to search VRBO again because I will return to gulf highlands and this unit. The owner is amazing to work with. One of the girls in our group left a small clutch type bag with jewelry and it was found and returned by the owner promptly. Easy access to so many attractions. The only thing that was missing was a golf cart however as much as I cooked I needed to walk.

Comfortable, Relaxing Stay at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse was perfect for my family. The unit has two bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen, and 2 1/2 baths with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. We were very comfortable there. We also enjoyed all of the little extras. From chairs and beach umbrella to wi-fi and deluxe cable, we had everything we needed for a great stay.

The townhouse is located on a lovely canal and just a few minutes walk from the beach. There are 11 well-maintained pools at Gulf Highlands. We went to 3 of them and also took advantage of the free mini-golf and tennis courts. The clubhouse on the beach has showers right inside the gate so you can rinse the sand and salt off of you when you finish at the ocean. That was a wonderful perk in addition to the wonderful views and attractive landscaping.

Gulf Highlands is a secure, gated community and centrally located to all of the attractions of Panama City Beach. Besides going to the beach everyday, we also found time to go to Wonderworks, Ripley's, Gulf World, Shell Island/Dolphin Tour, St. Andrew's State Park ( wonderful protected swim area if the current is too dangerous), batting cages, and even an uplifting church service on Sunday (Lighthouse Church.) We definitely weren't ready to leave after our week there.

This townhouse at Gulf Highlands more than met our needs, and Vicki is very easy to work with. I would certainly recommend this townhouse to anyone coming to Panama City Beach.

BEST KEPT SECRET IN PANAMA CITY, DON'T TELL ANYONE!

  • 5 of 5

Ok this is our little secret, don't tell anyone. This is the perfect place to remind you that you don't want to go back home. It backs up to a canal which provides allot of privacy compared to many of the other units. It's an easy walk to the beach. Gulf Highlands has their own private access to the beach and a club house with a pool and snack bar at the beach, not to mention all the pools, putt-putt and other activities that can be found across from this condo. Rooms are spacious, clean, and the owners are always friendly and accomadating! It's the only place I'll go to when a little down time is needed. Just don't tell anyone!
