About The Owner

Both I and my husband have been retired and have been renting out our condos in Panama City Beach for 10 yrs. We used to travel the beaches all over the US. $ Mexico in our motorhome--we found that our beaches in Panama City Beach are the very best--most beautiful--and reasonable place to vacation or own beach front property in the WHOLE WORLD!!!!!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why The Owner chose Panama City Beach

Reasonable rentals for families and awesome place to live--We traveled many beaches in our motorhome for 12 yr. after retiring in 1995--Panama City Beaches are addicting!!!! One of the few beaches we came back to year after year. We now stay here for about 6 months each year & always miss it when we are gone. Wonderful place to rent or own!!! We hope our guest love our condo here at Gulf Crest as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Awesome pools and hot tub looking out at the gulf. Awesome wide white sand beach in front of the condo--never to crowded like a lot of beaches. Gulf Crest is located near golf--minature golf--family parks and also St. Andrews state park is only min. away. A trolly runs very often in front of the condo that can take you to Pier Park 'our new beautiful mall' or even downtown PCB if you desire!!! Many fine resturants within walking distance--even gulf side dining with-in a very short walk on our beach--wendys & pizza hut only steps from the condo-- Full kitchen with everything you will need to cook a dinner if desired. You won't want for anything after you settle in and get a few goodies from Walmart which is only a very short distance from the condo. Never to buzy to drive anywhere from our location which is the best location to be at on the whole 25 miles of white sandy beaches!!

Very nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit is very spacious, clean, and stocked! WiFi service, other amenities galore. The large glass windows gives a prime ocean view from anywhere in the unit. The balcony area is the best on the beach. The condo staff were attentive and friendly. Easy access to parking garage and close to area attractions makes this location hard to beat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! We agree this unit is very spacious and is located in a prime spot within the stretch Panama City's white sandy beaches. I'm so glad you enjoyed the condo and found the location convenient to shopping and dining. The Gulf Crest is known for their large wrap around balconies, they are very spacious and great for larger parties. We look forward to working with you in the near future. Let us know when you are planning your next trip to PCB!

Not clean!

  • 1 of 5

This was the worst vacation experience we have ever had. This condo was not clean and smelled of mildew. It was so bad that we could not stay there and were switched to a different unit. The second unit was better, but not much. Very disappointed. I would be embarrassed if I were the owner of these units. The only positive thing I can say is that Paula was very helpful and kind.

Wonderful Condo!

  • 4 of 5

First I must say, communication with the owner was pretty poor. There was a point that I was afraid of fraud due to the lack of communication. That eventually resolved and that is my only complaint. The condo more than made up for that. Beautifully decorated with a large spacious balcony! The gated community along with a security guard made us feel safe during our stay. 2 large pools, hot tubs, kiddy pool and bar/grill made it so where you never had to leave! Being on the 3rd floor was very convenient and were able to take the stairs the majority of the time. The location of Gulf Crest is ideal- we walked to several eating venues and amusement parks. We've been to PCB several times and I think we've found our location spot. Will return for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review. We are glad you enjoyed this 3rd floor 2 bedroom Gulf crest condo. The owner put a lot of money into it this past winter and it is in great shape. Unfortunately our final confirmation email with all necessary check in info is long a does sometimes go to your junk mail. So there was not really a lack of communication just the emails were going into junk or spam mail. Please let us know when you would like to return to the Gulf Crest and thanks again for the kind review.

Awesome Sauce!

  • 5 of 5

The 2nd bedroom mattress was pretty uncomfortable and the cleaning staff were not thorough, we had to wash the comforters on arrival (visible soiling) and sweep the floor. I'm sure it was not mopped, we all had instant black feet walking through the condo, and forced to wear shoes/sandals at all times. But the view was fantastic and floor plan was spacious. We loved the large deck, there would have been room to play cornhole. We came the last week of May, the beach was very crowded, and we were disappointed with the lack of respect vacationers had for the beach. People left their trash everywhere! We will return, but maybe off season, the actual condo was perfect for us 5 adults and 2 kids!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Condo was in a great location away from PCB traffic. It was clean and well prepped for our stay. Great view of the ocean and fantastic condo amenities. Will stay here again in the future.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this resort before and really like it there. This was our first time at this condo and it was nice. The only reason I wouldn't give it a 5 star is because it was a little dirty and could use some updating. Overall though it was roomy, mattresses were comfortable and the balcony was great. The bunk beds could use some fitted sheets.

We enjoyed our stay and would come back. Thank You
