                                I thought the condo was nice and pleasant. Even though we had a scare do to flooding but everything turned out great. The only problem I have is I can't get the owners to answer my text, phone calls, or emails about my $200 deposit!! I have been trying to get in contact with them for a month. I think that is bad business. Will never stay here again for this reason!! Condo again was nice but bad business for not returning deposit and ignoring calls!!

                                Thanks so much for making our first Panama City beach stay so enjoyable! The condo was excellent in every way. It was clean and beautifully decorated. Just a short walk to the beach and if you wanted to see other attractions it is only a short drive. The kitchen has every thing you could ask for, we ate most of our meals in. Terri was so helpful and we received the deposit back in a timely manner. I definitely recommend this condo!!

                                We came to Gulf Highlands for a much needed vacation. It was our first time there. Terri was very easy to work with. I loved the townhouse!! I am a clean freak and I was very pleased with how clean her place was :) It backs up to the largest pool on the resort which was a plus with the kids. We cooked on the grill and sat out on the back porch having adult beverages. It had all of the comforts of home. I got my deposit back with in a week of checking out. We have already reserved a week in Oct. I can hardly wait, I am counting the days. This is a A+++ place.

                                I'm writing this a bit late but we LOVED the condo. Beautifully decorated and the location - both for pool-side and the beach was perfect. Very spacious! I'd never slept on a temper pedic and now know it will be my next mattress purchase. The owner, Terri, was very easy to work with to secure our week at the condo and our deposit was refunded very soon after our arrival back home. We look forward to renting this condo again! We've stayed at GHBR a couple times and this condo, by far, is our favorite. We also discovered a "locals" place to eat right outside GHBR main entrance - Bayou on the Beach. GREAT cajun seafood and even my picky-eater was able to order food she loved!

                                My family stayed in the Hudson's place here for a week. It was very nice place and we really enjoyed the lagoon out back and feeding the turtles. The pool was wonderful and not a bad walk to the beach. The ONLY thing we found wrong was, it was not clean. We had to clean the bathrooms and kitchen. The stove was very dirty and the refigerator was not clean, The red sofa is very worn and adults could not sit on it. Overall stay was great but if they pay someone to clean their place, then they need to find a new person b/c they are getting ripped off. I would stay here again.

                                Over all the stay was not bad. All the accommodations were nice with a lot of space. It was pet friendly which made it very convenient. There was a problem with the water heater that was never fixed. It seem like it would heat the water periodically so it was a 50/50 chance when taking a shower. It has been 3 months and we have not received our deposit back. The owner has been contacted a number of times and promise to send it to us but it has yet to happen. I hate that this has happen, we are in Panama City Beach twice a year and thought that we found the place to stay each time.

                                Owner response: I believe that this person has mistaken us for someone elses add. We have never rented to anyone from Winston GA., we are NOT PET FRIENDLY, and our homeowners meeting is that week and we were using our unit. We would only keep some of a deposit if there was damage, and have never kept a full deposit. Terri

                                We stayed in this house for a week in September. It was tastefully decorated with a palm tree theme that ran throughout the house. We absolutely loved it. The big bed in the master suite was the most comfy thing I have ever slept in and the lovely deep bath was great to relax in. You could see the big pool from the back of the house, that too was really nice and there were never more than a handfull of people in it. A short walk takes you to the beach over the road where there is another pool which overlooks the beach, I always found this pool to be refreshingly cool even though the sun was so hot. A huge thing to me , as I have a phobia about them, I didnt see a single roach in the whole of the complex the whole week!! I would definately recommend this house to anyone and I would love to return next year if possible myself.
