Author 02-26-2024

Panama City Beach is a wonderful vacation destination located on the Gulf of Mexico. If you’re planning a visit, you’ll want equally wonderful accommodations to enhance your stay. Below, we list the top 10 reasons to book a Panama City Beach Gulf front rental —get ready for an incredible getaway!

#1: Luxury Amenities

One of the main perks of booking one of our Gulf front rentals in this gorgeous coastal area is the amenities. We offer incredible add-ons that you won’t find in hotels, B&Bs, or rental homes in the area. We go above and beyond to make sure that we not only offer the basics but have much more than that.

Some of our properties offer private pools so you can hop into the cool blue water any time of the day to chill out, cool off from the midday sun, or swim some laps. We also have outdoor space for you to sit outside and read a book, take a midday nap, or watch your kids play in the pool as you lie down on the reclining chair and have a cocktail.


Other great amenities that are unique to our properties include ample outdoor space. Our Gulf front homes offer some type of outdoor space for you to see the Gulf at all times, whether that is a private balcony, outdoor deck, private backyard, or shared outdoor pool.

Plus, we have interior amenities for you to use during your stay. Our living rooms come with flatscreen TVs for you to watch movies or your favorite shows during a break from the sun. You can also use the modern kitchen to make a quick meal for your guests. The possibilities are endless when you stay with us!

#2: Easy Access to Fishing

If you are an avid outdoor person, chances are you want to be outside in the sunshine, in the water, or do some type of sport all day. We don’t blame you. That is why we think our Gulf front rentals are the best options for those who want to get outside and go fishing, surfing, or swimming.

Our Gulf front properties offer easy and stress-free access to the water at any time of the day. Make sure you pack your fishing rods and bring some bait and tackle so you can catch some fresh fish to make for dinner that night.

#3: Best Views in Our Panama City Beach Gulf Front Rental

With pristine interior and exterior amenities, our properties have unbeatable views that make you never want to leave your home. Whether you are on the ground floor of your house and sitting outside on the screened-in porch in your Adirondack chair and looking at the waves, or you are high up on your private deck and checking out the white sand beaches below, the views are divine.

Our beachfront homes offer widespread views you won’t see if you are not along the coast. Sit outside early in the morning to watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee, or head out here to have a glass of wine with your partner for a romantic date night.

#4: Layout Choice

Another perk and reason you should choose one of our spacious and homey rentals near the Gulf is that you can choose the home layout you desire. If you are going on a romantic trip with your partner, you may only need a small one-bedroom condo that overlooks the crash even in the morning.

If you are going with your entire extended family, you will need a little more space. We offer many properties ranging from small studios to four-bedroom luxury homes that can fit more than 12 people.


The benefit of being able to choose the size and layout of your vacation home is that there will not be any wasted space. You will feel right at home when you stay in one of our houses, ensuring you have just the right amount of space for sleeping at night, relaxing in the living room, eating meals together in the dining room, and sitting outside on your private patio to watch the sunrise in the morning.

Check out our properties beforehand to see which ones work for your unique preferences. Suppose you are traveling along the coast with two other couples on a couple’s retreat. We recommend booking a three-bedroom house or condo that has enough space for everyone to have their bedroom, play board games in the dining room, and watch movies together in the living room.

#5: Modern Kitchens

Nothing is better than waking up early before the world gets too noisy and putting on a cup of coffee. Wait for the coffee to brew as you smell the fresh beans and listen to the crashing waves outside your window. Then, take your fresh cup of coffee to your private balcony to watch the sunrise, listen to the sound of the wind, and see the incredible colors of the Gulf.

When you have a modern kitchen, you can do just that. Not only can you make a fresh pot of coffee in the morning for your guests, but we also provide specialized coffee makers that work with espresso drinks, short cups of espresso for a little pick-me-up, and other hot drinks.

Our modern kitchens offer new appliances, such as stainless steel stoves and ovens, that make cooking and baking a breeze. Even if you are not a fan of cooking during vacation, you will love the ability to use the new appliances to whip up a quick breakfast, serve snacks, or just make drinks for everyone during happy hour.

#6: Plush Bedrooms

After a long day of surfing, walking along the beach, or shopping in the downtown coastal area nearby, it might be time to finally hit the hay. We bet you are tired from traveling, being in the sun all day, and having a fantastic time with your guests. The good thing is that you can retire to one of our cozy and plush bedrooms to get eight hours of sleep and wake up feeling rested.

Our luxurious Gulf front homes offer plush, cozy, and spacious bedrooms that are plenty big for you and your guests. We know it can be hard to find hotel rooms and hostels that offer enough privacy, so we design our homes and condos to give everyone the privacy and space they need.

Our bedrooms offer large beds with cozy bedding, soft linens against your skin, and fluffy pillows to support your neck. We have space for you to unpack and put your clothes in drawers or organized neatly in the closet via hangers. Before hopping under the covers, use your ensuite bathroom for a quick shower to rinse the sand off your body.

#7: Location

When you finally decide it’s time to leave your cozy and warm condo to explore the coastal area, there is SO much for you to do that we can’t narrow it down to just one or two attractions. Panama City Beach truly has it all when it comes to restaurants, cafes, beaches, outdoor activities, events, shopping, and cultural attractions.

However, we do think that finding a list of a few must-do items can help you plan and schedule your trip. If you are going to PCB with kids, head to Shell Island to pick up some shells in nature, Gulf World Marine Park to see the incredible wildlife up close and personal, and Shipwreck Island Waterpark to cool off on a hot day.


Other family-friendly attractions include the Coconut Creek Family Fun Park for little toddlers to have fun swimming in the kiddie pools, Ripley’s Believe it or Not for older kids to learn more interesting facts about unique creatures. The ZooWorld Zoological Conservatory To see wild animals in their natural habitat thriving and happy.

For adults here to hang out with their mates and spend some time in the town, we think going to the Russell Fields City Pier to see the fishermen hard at work is a fun thing to do in the afternoon. You can also walk from your Gulf front property to St. Andrews State Park for a beachfront walk or to Pier Park to get some shopping done in your free time.

#8: Nearby Restaurants

Nothing is better than going on a romantic trip to Panama City Beach and spending time with your loved one on the beach, walking around the shopping areas, checking out the beautiful wildlife, and having a romantic dinner every night of the week. What more could you ask for during a holiday?

And when you stay with us at one of our Gulf front rentals, you can walk out of your front door and get to one of these pristine restaurants in no time at all. Every restaurant on this list offers fine dining, far-reaching views, fresh seafood, and a great ambiance that will set the mood for your special night with your partner.

First, we recommend going to Firefly for a romantic and special evening that is more high-end than other options on the list. This incredible restaurant on Richard Jackson Boulevard has a dimly lit outdoor space with twinkle lights, white-glove service, and fresh seafood that will have you dreaming for days on end.

We recommend ordering the escargot with parmesan crumble to split with your date, or the wisp saffron and mascarpone arancini balls with roasted tomato butter and lemon zest. If you are in the mood to start with seafood, the calamari with Roma sauce, shrimp cocktail with zesty cocktail sauce, or jumbo lump crab cakes with roasted eggplant and smoked paprika is a great start.

Suppose you want to try some of the fire-roasted broiler meat. In that case, the grilled New Zealand rack of lamb with maitake mushroom risotto and tomato butter is always a crowd favorite. However, suppose you want to stick with the fresh seafood. In that case, you can’t go wrong with ordering the grilled gulf grouper with roasted heirloom tomato, broiled lobster tails with seasonal vegetables, or the honey soy glazed salmon. Pair any of these dishes with a glass or bottle of red or white wine and enjoy a romantic evening under the stars.

Another fun date night spot that is a little less formal and more relaxed is Dusty’s Oyster Bar. We love the laid-back and casual vibe of this oyster bar and eatery that consistently churns out tasty seafood, fun vibes, and friendly service that keeps people coming back for more every single week.

You can’t head here without getting the oyster, of course! You can choose how you like it, whether baked, 3-cheese, casino style, Rockefeller, or dust-baked. Pair a dozen oysters with one of their infamous ‘sandwiches,’ like the shrimp po boy, or the Bayou’s Best offerings, like the soft shell crabs, frog legs, or gator bites. The interesting menu is a real page-turner.
