Gulf Highlands 142, 2 Bedrooms, Heated Pool Access, WiFi, Sleeps 4
A two-bedroom town home that sleeps four, Gulf Highlands 142 is only a few minutes’ stroll from the white-sand beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Given the many amenities of the Gulf Highlands Beach Resort, you don’t have to leave the complex to have your fun in the sun.
Gated with 24-hour security, the Gulf Highlands complex has a whopping eleven swimming pools, five of which are heated seasonally. The largest pool looks out directly onto the gulf and includes a clubhouse with a restaurant and snack bar. Unit 142 is just steps from another pool, as well as a playground and two of the resort’s tennis courts. Not much farther is the gym, in case swimming and tennis aren’t enough of a workout for you. Shuffleboard courts are scattered throughout the resort as well, and there’s a lagoon for fishing right on the well-manicured grounds. The complex even has its own 18-hole mini-golf course! And when you stay at Gulf Highlands 142, you can enjoy all these amenities for free.
As for unit 142, it’s a wonderfully restful home away from home. The front porch includes two chairs and a table. Sip your morning coffee out here amid the salt-fresh gulf breeze—what a lovely way to start the day! Inside on the ground floor is the open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. Stretch out on one of the comfy couches and watch TV, curl up in the armchair to surf the web via the free WiFi, or play cards at the dining table, which seats six.
Adjacent to the dining table is a breakfast bar, where two people can perch for a snack, and behind that is the kitchen. Fully equipped with appliances, cookware, tableware, and ample counter space, the kitchen can handle even a holiday feast. What’s more, the rear patio has a grill, perfect if you want to barbecue fish you reeled in yourself… or steak and veggies from a local grocery. You can dine alfresco too, at the patio table; there’s even a sun umbrella to keep you cool on hot summer afternoons.
Both bedrooms are on the upper floor of Gulf Highlands 142. Each has a queen-size bed, a TV, plenty of storage, and a ceiling fan to help lull you to sleep (and of course, the unit has central air-conditioning as well). One of the bedrooms open onto a private balcony. You and your sweetheart can linger over a moonlit nightcap out here before heading to bed.
In addition to a full bathroom upstairs, Gulf Highlands 142 has a convenient half-bath on the lower level. You’ll arrive to find plenty of towels for both rooms, the beds beautifully made up, and extra bedding waiting. In addition, the unit has its own washer and dryer. You can pack light without having to waste precious vacation time at a Laundromat.
That frees you up to enjoy everything that the resort and Panama Beach City have to offer. For starters, there’s the beach itself: 27 miles of glorious sand and surf. The sunsets over the gulf are indescribably gorgeous, and there’s a good chance that you’ll spy dolphins leaping and splashing as you swim. Canoe, kayak, fish, paddleboard, parasail, bodyboard, race jet skis, or collect shells anytime you wish. Three golf courses—Holiday, Hombre, and Signal Hill—are within a ten-minute drive. Also less than ten minutes away are Gulf World Marine Park, WonderWorks educational amusement center, and ZooWorld. And less than twenty minutes away is St. Andrews State Park, where you can walk or bike along paths, snorkel, scuba dive, fish, spot all sorts of birds, and maybe spy alligators.
