Tucked inside a gated community with pools, tennis courts, and private beach access, this Panama City Beach vacation rental at the Gulf Highlands Resort is sure to please. While this home is free of WiFi, you can still enjoy a movie on the DVD and VCR players, and stay cool with central AC. The soft, inviting furniture is the perfect place to lounge with an enthralling good book. Cook delicious meals in the full-service kitchen complete with a dishwasher for easy cleaning, an L-shaped breakfast bar with three bar stools, and a four-top dining table. Enjoy the grill outside on your back patio for cookouts and Southern BBQ favorites. Sleep soundly in two bedrooms with queen beds and plenty of natural light. The addition of a queen sleeper sofa in the living room makes this a comfortable rental for up to six guests. The half-bathroom and the full bathroom with a separate water closet mean no line to get ready in the morning.

What's nearby:
Resort-style amenities await outside your door! The complex offers guests access to five tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, and 11 swimming pools - one of which is right on the Gulf! Head out to the private stretch of beach to enjoy water sports like surfing and parasailing, stand-up paddleboarding, and wave chasing. Read a novel under a rented umbrella, and help the kids build the biggest sandcastle on the beach! There's also complimentary access to the on-site mini-golf course, a fitness center to keep up your workout regimen, and a beach clubhouse with a cafe and snack bar. Just a mile and a half away from the main drag of town, and within walking distance of the Shoppes at Edgewater for dining and shopping options, this condo is close to everything. Guests will thrive within the gates of this community, surrounded by ample opportunities to play, beat the heat, and enjoy Florida's stunning beaches.

Melissa D. May 2022
Comfy place
Gilles R. Jan 2022
We loved the Beach, 28 miles of soft white sand dazzled us. The location was great, an honest 3 to 5 min. walk to the beach.
Condominion size great, appliances etc good. The sofas were stained. Beds were good, sheets very clean. The carpet was awful, old, ragged and dirty. BBQ old and probably hasnt worked for a long Time. Great pools, at least one heated . Tennis courts great, lights for night tennis. Very Quiet and safe. Lots. of shopping nearby. Over all, reasonable value for the cost, especially at XMass. The condo needs a facelift Is all.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Gilles! We strive to create the best experiences for our guests. We sincerely apologize for any oversight in cleaning from our housekeeping staff and any inconvenience this caused you. We are actively hiring and training new housekeeping staff and have followed up with housekeeping about the cleanliness issue and assure future guests this was handled. We hope to host you again and impress you in the future!

Natalie C. May 2021
We enjoyed our stay.
Jamie C. May 2021
A good value when up against other options, a lot of ammenities and activities to enjoy in the gulf highlands area. Questions were answered very quickly by phone staff upon contact at vacasa. A bit of a walk to beach access, but could have been alot worse based on other units within the area.

The location
heather s. Feb 2021
Not fit for small children, (Yes they use that fishbowl filter)glass table, wrought iron furniture and showers only. Someone with a small child or baby would need this info. $70 Damage waiver is not refundable, layered paint and outdated appliances. Hotpoint gas oven not hooked up to the gas line so it still doesn't work. Appliances from the early 90's. Dollartree utensils and complimentary dishwasher pods plus a nice big Pot hole in front of the unit for a wet welcome into he#@ :) When we arrived the vent covers were all unscrewed from the walls and one hanging above a bed. The nice stained couches look like they stepped out of a clown show with a comfortable 2 inch mattress. Step onto the back patio and into the storage unit if you want to do your laundry, but make sure you BYO soap and don't step on any of the rotting oranges covering the backyard :)
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you were unhappy with your experience. We are speaking with the HOA regarding the pothole and neighbor's orange tree. Maintenance corrected the loose vent, and we have scheduled a professional carpet and upholstery cleaning. Thank you, Heather!
David F. Sep 2020
Didn’t look like pictures! There was trash all around the building outside. The oven didn’t work and I was planing on cooking and not eating out every night. The cabinet doors was broke didn’t have extra covers and pillows. Says it had a heated pool but wasn’t. It was dirty one clean towel the rest was still in dryer
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, David. We are sorry to read you were unhappy with your visit. The owner has purchased a new stove, and the HOA has completed repairs around the property. We will follow-up with our staff about properly preparing and inspecting the home prior to guest arrival. We hope to see you again!

Distance from the beach.
Lacey C. Aug 2020
Everything was what it said it would be!
William M. Jul 2020
Will never stay here again and pictures are deceiving.
Manager response:
Hi, William! We are so sorry to read you were not happy with your Vacasa experience. The shower door has been repaired, and we have removed the broken recliner. Hopefully we have a chance to impress you in the future!
Allison B. Jul 2020
It’s in a convenient area but the place could use several improvements
Manager response:
Allison, thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time at Gulf Highlands. We apologize for the oversight regarding the cleanliness. We have passed along your feedback to the local housekeeping staff and manager so they are aware of your comments. We are sorry this experience had a negative impact on your stay, and we hope to have the chance to impress you in the future.
Angela P. Jul 2020
We loved this place!!! For my family of 5 we had plenty of room to relax. Was a close walk to the beach and had so many pools to enjoy to. We all enjoyed a afternoon playing putt putt and playing tennis on the property as well. Had a nice gas grill on the back patio as well so grilling a steak after a day at the beach just topped it off. We will definitely be going back!
Nina V. Mar 2020
This home was comfy, clean, and in a nice location. The only thing that we didn't like was the carpet on the stairs and the bedrooms, we are prone to allergies and sneezed all weekend.
Dalton G. Feb 2020
Affordable, clean and roomy. Close to a pool. Great place to stay.
Angela R. Oct 2019
Everything it was great! Would love to stay again!

The place is outdated and needs update.

Leigh C. May 2019
The neighborhood was great, very friendly and nothing loud. The beach access was right around the corner and across the street. The beach house was also across the street with another great pool and delicious food. We would love to return to this property!
Lashia B. Mar 2019
I loved the location and privacy. The home was beautiful and very pleasant. I will definitely rent it again for our next vacation in Panama City.

The location is conveniently located to major stores and restaurants. We love the Oceanside pool and clubhouse.
olivia s. Aug 2018
The house was comfortable and not far from stores. About a mile from Walmart and about 3 from the little malls. Not far from the beach either!
Dalton B. Aug 2018
Close to everything, beach right across the road!

First of foremost the entire staff was extremely friendly! They replied quickly via email as well as telephone. The home was amazing! Nice, clean, and cozy! No complaints. I had a letter waiting on me as well as a tote bag! I’m not booking with anyone else, but you guys!!! Thanks a lot!
Shannon S. Jul 2018
My kids are 14 and 16, and they love meeting new people. It’s a safe, fun environment with 11 pools, putt putt, a tennis court, and more. The condo is well equipped with toys, an umbrella, tennis racquets, putters, and more. I fixed breakfast, lunch and dinner with the items in the kitchen. Short walk to the beach! When I had a question, it was quickly answered. The washer/dryer is right out the back door. I love being able to wash and dry clothes along the way!
John C. Jul 2018
Clean, convenient to beach and no issues
Leah W. Jul 2018
The place was great, had everything we needed, was clean and decorated nicely. The facility of Gulf Highlands itself was very quite, family friendly, safe and well up kept. Will definitely stay again in the future.
Lacey S. Jun 2018
Clean. Very good communication and customer service. I had a goody bag waiting on me which was so wonderful! We didn't spend much time in the condo, we were there for nationals and the beach. While it's not on the beach, it is very close!
Merilyn L. Jun 2018
Great service!
Roger E. Apr 2018
Gulf Highlands is a very nice place to stay, this townhouse was very comfortable.
Cortina M. Apr 2018

Travis B. Mar 2018
Great space....
Bridgett B. Feb 2018
Great location, staff, and townhouse!
Brenda Y. Nov 2017
We were there for Ironman Florida. So we didn’t spend much time in the house or at the pool or other facilities. I was disappointed in no washer/dryer, as our sweaty clothes had to be packed all wet. Overall it was a nice place. It isn’t far from the beach, but the beach is not within walking distance.
Amber B. Sep 2017
Great vacation spot! Nice beach access!
John B. Jul 2017
Great place to stay in the heart of everything and great pools too.
Jasmine P. Jul 2017
My entire trip was awesome. We love everything about our stay at Gulf Highlands. My best trip so far
Jason S. Jul 2017
Loved the house and the location. Less than a 5 minute bike ride to the beach. The Grill could use some updating but, everything else in the house was neat and clean. The oven however, had a little mind of its own at times when trying to bake biscuits. Overall, would stay here again.
MEREDITH R. Jun 2017
We loved our stay, close to the beach and great access to the pools and surrounding places to enjoy good food. Highly recommend!!
Oscar J. Mar 2017
We arrived at the residence and the pictures online were exactly of what I booked. House was in perfect state very clean and organized. Loved the fact that there was even beach toys for my daughter! I will definitely book this property again.
Ronnie H. Aug 2016
The pools were definitely a plus also mini golf right on site. It did take a couple days to get an access code to the fitness center. All in all it is definitely worth staying there again.
Patricia Q. Jul 2016
Its a great place, the beach is about a 5 minute walk, everyone around you are so cheerful and helpful! I really recommend this place!
Pam R. Jul 2016
Had a wonderful time. Short walk to beach. Pools were close.
Heather P. Jun 2016
The beds were comfy and clean. Quiet little gated community with pools and a tennis court. A short walk to the beach with a beach side pool to lounge in when you're tired of playing in the waves of the gulf. Be sure to come in by the pool, instead of public beach access, so you can rinse your feet and shower on the way back. The gate code seemed iffy, but we realized that sometimes you have to put extra pressure on the gate to get it open.
Pam I. Apr 2016
I'm normally a part time beach front person but after my first full day in the condo I stayed on the beach every single day I had remaining and plan on returning for a longer stay.
Heather R. Mar 2016
This unit had a homey feel with firm beds, quality sheets, and comfortable furniture. The resort is safe, and close to the beach, stores and restaurants. People were very friendly.
There was no internet access in this unit and the bbq was charcoal with few coals.
Alicia H. Aug 2015
The place exceeded our expectations...the pictures don't do the place justice. I was extremely leary about booking online....but glad I took the chance. It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach. We loved the gated scooters or bikes are allowed on the property. AWESOME EXPERIENCE...HIGHLY RECOMMEND UNIT 117!!
Lance D. Jun 2015
We had an awesome time and were extremely pleased with the location and overall experience. It's every bit of what is advertised. It's well kept up, clean and very homey.
