This bright and cheery beach condo is the perfect home base for your next family or friend getaway. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms give room for up to eight guests and one small pet!

Panama City Beach proper is just a few miles away for shopping, dining, and attractions, and - even better - the beach is just steps away from your condo! Staying in Gulf Gate Estate also gives you access to a relaxing community pool.

Sit down at the beautiful dining room table for six to enjoy a delicious meal prepared in the full kitchen complete with an oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, and more.

After dinner, spend a quiet night in cozied up on the sofa or love seat with a movie on the flatscreen TV and DVD player. WiFi is also included so you can stream movies or shows.

All eight guests have a place to lay their heads at night with the sofabed, king bed, queen bed, and two twins between the three bedrooms. The master bedroom also boasts access to the balcony and an attached full bathroom.

A second full bathroom is available through the hallway, along with a washer and dryer. If you decide to bring along two small dogs (of up to 25 pounds), please keep in mind there is a required pet fee.

Between the beach steps away and the sparkling pool, you may be happy to stay in the area during your getaway. If you choose to explore, you'll find that Panama City Beach has plenty of attractions and beautiful areas to explore. Shipwreck Island Water Park is within four miles, and Ripley's Believe It or Not, Wonderworks, and plenty of tasty eateries are just two miles away.

About Vacasa, FL - Emerald Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family���s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

The deck, pool area and the view from the balcony were all wonderful. It was located in a great area convenient to everything. It was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Reservations and checking out were very simple. Cost was great. The furniture and decor could use a little updating, but that was no big deal to us. We had a great vacation there and hope to get back soon!

My family went to Panama City Beach a few days before Christmas. The weather was lovely and we had a wonderful view of the beach and ocean from our balcony. We had plenty of room for all four of us. Enjoyed our stay and our furry kid did too!!! Will definitely go back!!!!

Great view and lots of room. Quiet area of PCB!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! Love everything. The view is incredible and the beach is so close. The three bedrooms gave us plenty of space to spread out. Loved the balcony...we spent A LOT of time out there. This area of Thomas Drive is superb. Quiet yet just minutes to shopping and dining. Everything went flawlessly from check in to check out!

Perfect view and area location

  • 5 of 5

Location is superb! This area off of Thomas Drive is so quiet yet just a few minutes from all the shopping and restaurants. Loved the view and spent A LOT of time on the balcony. Perfect vantage point for catching both sunrises and sunsets on the ocean. You are so close to the beach. So close! Loved the three bedrooms. Loved that the master opened up to the balcony. Was a wonderful Thanksgiving week for us...Lots of special memories with our kids. Everything went flawlessly from check in to check out. We didn't want to leave!

Great View and Beach Access!

  • 5 of 5

We knew from other reviews that this is an older unit, but in a quiet area of PCB. Which is what we wanted. We were right in between the busy, bustling areas but close to everything. The condo was clean and everything was in working order, just older. The mattresses were quite used and in need of replacement. But the access to the beach and the view more than compensated for the uncomfortable beds. The master bedroom bedspread has many pulls and picks, but is just for looks anyway, so we weren't bothered by it. We just took it off, folded it and put it to the side. So no issue there. There were marks from the blue chairs on the walls as well as marks from possible suitcases and/or the porters cart. Which was a shame as the area is wide enough for the cart. The carpet in the bedrooms was old but clean. But again, the view from the balcony and the short walk to the beach made up for everything else. The shades in the master bedroom are terrible. Several slates missing and several torn at the top. Had to be very careful with them. They let a lot of light in and the sun came right in the door to the master bed, so no sleeping late! The condo had nice, thick curtains in the living room so you could keep out the heat and the light if you wanted to. Those curtains would have been great to have in the master bedroom. The price of the unit was quite acceptable so we could overlook a lot of the issues mentioned by others. The one thing we could not overlook was how hot it was in the master bedroom. We were there in mid-November, so we could turn off the a/c and open the doors at night to keep cool. But during the day, if we came in to change, take a nap, etc. it was quiet hot. I hate to think of how hot it might get in the summer! That was the main issue we had. There was no use in contacting Vacasa as it is the way the condo was set up-- only one vent for a very large room with very large windows and sliding doors. We do plan to return to PCB next year, but will be looking for a different condo, but only because of the lack of a/c in the bedroom. I would recommend the property because of the beach access and the view. But would warn them about the mattresses and hot master bedroom. Some people like it warm, but not our family.
