About Steve Daugherty

We are Kathy and Steve Daugherty, from Birmingham, AL. We attended high school here in Birmingham, AL, and college at the University of Alabama and University of North Alabama. Have been back in Birmingham since the late 1970's. Pretty much retired these days, enjoying friends, family, and hobbies.

Steve Daugherty purchased this condo in 2004

Why Steve Daugherty chose Panama City Beach

We are one of the original Gulf Crest owners. We put down our deposit for our unit before groundbreaking in 2002, and closed upon completion in 2004. We could have chosen any unit in the building, and we decided on unit 706 because it is on the perfect floor and on the west side for the best sunsets. We hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we have enjoyed our beach home.

What makes this condo unique

Great property, spacious floor plan, great location, amazing view, all amenities, beautiful beach - it all adds up to a great vacation home.

another mostly great time.

  • 4 of 5

once again the trip was excellent and the weather was great all week. the condo was clean and the views are great. The only complaints had was the beds are way to soft and feel like you are falling in. The rental service best beach getaways could use some improvement since they never called to say the condo was ready, we had to call 3 times after the check in time and finally the 3rd time and 2 hours later we got our code. That wasn't Steve's fault so I don't blame the owner for the rental company. W will stay here again for sure I just hope it goes more smoothly next time.

1st Panama City Beach visit

  • 5 of 5

Just back from vacation and had a wonderful time. Our first time in Panama City Beach and it was wonderful. Weather was outstanding with nice breezes on the balcony all week. Checked in and the staff was very nice and helpful and got us in a little before check-in. We were traveling with an 11 month old and was very infant friendly. She crawled all over the condo. Condo was very nice and owner was very nice to deal with. Everything was clean and comfortable and convenient. Got my security deposit back in less than a week. Will definitely go back. Thanks Steve for a great experience.

Everything said about this property was correct. The decor fit us, my husband's nickname is Pineapple. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. We have already booked for Spring Break. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo and being able to relax and enjoy the weather.

Thanks for one of our best vacations

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time on our vacation the week of July 23rd. Your condo is beautifully decorated, and the view is phenomenal. We were in Panama City for my sister's wedding, and other family members stayed at different condos (one was less expensive and one was more expensive). All felt your condo was the best in comparison to size, decor and view. Sometimes pictures on the Internet are deceiving, but the photos posted on the website were accurate and decor was actually nicer in person. The building was very well maintained and onsite management very friendly and helpful. The sand was beautiful and felt like flour on your feet. It never seemed to get too hot to walk barefoot. While my family went canoeing or boating, I spent most of my time on the balcony relaxing and just taking in the view. I emailed a picture of the view from the balcony to friends, and one plans to use it as a screen saver for her laptop. If I ever return to Panama City, I would difinitely rent this condo again. Steve, thank you for your personal phone call when I was searching for condos back in January and the quick return of the security deposit.

Awesome describes this condo. Dining Room pictures are most representative of the whole condo. The rest don't come close to doing it justice. It really is exceptionally nice. Made my husband promise to take me there at least once a year. The owners are wonderful to deal with, both in making arrangements and following thru with returning deposit very promptly. We saw the most beautiful sunset we have ever seen in our lives the first night there while having drinks on the balcony. The location on the beach is soooooooo convenient. Beautiful pools. Property is very very clean and magnificently maintained. Parking space in the garage for this condo is really convenient. We were nervous about the arrangements because we were arriving late on Sunday night but they have a very efficient set up for gaining entry. If you are considering Panama City Beach, I can't believe it gets any better than this at their rental rates. Also best location for watching the Ironman Triathlon.
