Studio Description

For those who prefer a more cozy, intimate setting to enjoy the beach, look no further than Top of the Gulf Resort. Our studio was recently remodeled and redecorated. It is perfectly sized and ideally located directly on the Gulf beaches on a not too staggeringly high 5th floor. Enjoy a comfortable setting perfect for 1-4 guests with two queen beds, a large flat screen TV w/HD, kitchenette for meals and snacks, dining table for 4 and two recliners to soak in the view. One entire end of the studio is a bay window which opens so you can enjoy looking at the surf and sand while you listen to the waves and smell the salt air. High-speed internet keeps you connected, and while there is no private balcony, each floor features a large, communal balcony with comfy chairs to enjoy the view and breeze.

Top of the Gulf resort is one of the best maintained reosrts in Panama City Beach with a gorgeous pool, immaculate landscaping, and pristine beachside amenities. A Surf Snack Shack offers treats at the ready (in high season), or grills are available to make your own. Coolers are welcome poolside as well.

From March to October, we’re pleased to offer guests complimentary beach chair service. Leave your chairs and umbrella at home—we make beach living easy.

For more fun, the game room boasts a pool table and a fuse ball table, and pool area features a shuffleboard court that also offers cornhole boards. A large swing and an oversized Adirondack chair add to the beachy atmosphere, and the internet cafe is poolside with dedicated wifi internet in a shaded space.

Who doesn't love extras? We have a book of menus from our favorite restaurants to help you choose where to dine and activity ideas (for rain or shine). Complimentary starter sizes of items like shampoo, conditioner, soaps and paper goods help get your trip going.

This studio is one we personally enjoy so we have equipped it to be uber-comfortable with all the conveniences of home, yet all the extras you want in a beach vacation location.
