Unique Benefits

Our location is unique being so close to a swimming pool where you can see your kids from the front porch. There are numerous restaurants all within walking distance and the beach only minutes away. We're close enough to the main gate entrance but far enough away from area noise....it really is a very peaceful place.
If you're planning an extended week or more, many of our guests rent Golf Carts from local Golf-Cart Rental Companies that deliver inside Gulf Highlands, (NO Street Legal or Six-Seater Rental Carts are Allowed on the Property per HOA Regulations).
There's also a locally owned "Beach Shuttle Golf-Cart Service" available...A simple phone call and you're picked up at your unit or at the Beach. There's no direct cost to you, as they only accept voluntary tips. With your reservation we will provide this contact.

Why Kids Love It

Freedom for them....and for YOU! The Damon swimming pool is directly across from the front door, just steps away. You can actually watch the kids from the front patio! Many vacationers also bring their Bicycles so the kids can freely roam the property visiting the canals, playgrounds and putt-putt course not to mention shuffleboard and tennis also near the front door. The Beach and Beach club is a short 5-minute stroll, many people load their gear in pushcarts and wagons to spend the day at the beach. After hours, directly behind our unit is a pass-through gate which takes them to Rocket Lanes, a Bowling Alley, Arcade and Roller-Skating Rink...literally 100 yards behind the unit. It really is a kids paradise! Of course, for Mom & Dad there's the Bayou Restaurant just to the left of our unit, (Happy Hour 4-7) all within walking (or crawling) distance.

About the owner: Angela & Jay live in the Atlanta area and purchased the property in 2013 after visiting friends who lived in Gulf Highlands. Being avid Motorcycle riders we were familiar with PCB attending Bike Week events but had never considered buying. Upon visiting Gulf Highlands we were impressed how clean and well managed it was, and we enjoyed the energy of people there. We found Gulf Highlands a very active and thriving community well situated to Beach activities along Front Beach Rd along with nearby shopping and restaurants, making it a perfect location. Now years later we've never regretted our decision making new friends in the area and creating new relationships with repeat guests, many who have become family to us.
Angela and I prefer treating others the way we want to be treated and that belief has allowed us to provide exceptional service for our guests.
It is indeed our pleasure to share with others the joy and freedom we feel in the area when visiting PCB via Gulf Highlands and we hope you will too!

Why this property? Gulf Highlands is well managed, very secure and just plain enjoyable. There is so much to do on the property with 11 swimming pools (all of them available to guests and residents), Shuffle Board, Tennis Courts, 18-hole Putt-Putt course, and a Private Beach Club (with it's own Beachside Swimming Pool), a Snack Bar and so much it's located in a surprisingly noise free and non-congested area very close to shopping and restaurants. It really is a magical place and we know you and your family will have a great Beach Vacation staying in Gulf Highlands!

Fun times with the Grandchildren

This condo was outstanding. Beautifully decorated: all the amenities that you need. No golf cart but my son had one so we used it and bicycles. Tried out most of the pools and lastly played goofy golf. I fully recommend Jay’s condo.

Home away from home

Great family friendly condo and location. Truly a home away from home. Pool was directly across the street! Washer and dryer was appreciated and used. Decor was warm and inviting. The kitchen was stocked with everything you might need to cook a meal. The owners are so hospitable, helpful and very quick to respond. Water hose in the back was so nice to have to rinse off cooler and beach toys. Wonderful family sitting area on patio and grill. Short walk to the beach. Next time we will bring a golf cart. The pool on the beach side was refreshing. I would definitely come back to stay with my family.

Easy

Jay and Angela made the rental process convenient. They were very easy to contact and responded promptly. Everything worked out just as expected. The location was just a short walk through the complex to the beach, and their place was neat and clean.

Perfect place!

Could not have asked for a better location. The townhouse is right in the heart of Panama City beach. Very quick walk to get to the beach, shopping, restaurants, golf cart rental, etc. The pool is literally seconds away from the front door. We loved staying here, the place is very well maintained and had everything we could need. The resort is also very nice, the other guests were friendly and the grounds are clean and landscapes nicely. We could not have asked for a better stay!

You’ll feel right at home!!!

A last minute decision for myself, my two daughters and three of my grandchildren turned into the most enjoyable stay in PC beach! This is approximately our 10th stay in PCB and our favorite so far.The townhouse feels like home including all the amenities a resort should offer. The resort is situated feet from the beach, popular restaurants and entertainment favorites. The condo itself was roomy, spotless and fully stocked with anything we needed. Jay and Angela, the owners, were exceptional and timely in all of my questions regarding the condos amenities and supplies, if needed. We can’t wait to get back this year with hopes of staying in this same condo/townhouse, if possible. It’s first on my list!!! Don’t waste you time on expensive hotel stays when this location is so much more for your money!!! Thanks again Jay and Angela!!!

Laura, You are most kind with your thoughts...thank you! One of the things we've found over the years is how much we all have in common with the enjoyment of GHBR. As a result we've made friends instead of guests. We look forward to speaking with you again! Jay & Angela
