Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

I also have VRBO Listing #513522 open at the Water Crest. It is a beautiful, ground floor unit, that has just been totally gutted and remodeled. Just inquire for details.

****Never get on an elevator or take stairs for your entire stay***

This ground floor condo pictured in this add is located at the end of the building where the hot tubs are. The pools are down from your balcony so you will not have a lot of traffic in front of your balcony. It is the most convenient without the noise from pools. The very best of both worlds.

This ground floor 2 bedroom Gulf Crest condo is located on the same level as your assigned parking space and also on the same level as the pool deck and beach. You can walk directly in from your parking space to the condo and then right out the back door to the private patio with a gate to the pool deck and beach without ever taking any stairs.

The master bedroom has cable tv and a king size bed. It does have a sliding glass door to the private patio and also a private bathroom.

The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed with a door to the bathroom and cable tv.

The living room has a pull out couch.

There are 2 twin size bunk beds in an out of the way area near the dining room.

The condo comfortably sleeps 8 in beds.

Awesome location and easy access to the beach

  • 5 of 5

2nd time we have stayed at this location. Great views of the pool and beach for a first floor condo. Walk right out to the pool from back patio. Many upgrades since our last stay a few years ago. New sofa, floors, and paint. Kitchen has all necessary items. Quite location in the fall. Close to restaurants and shopping. Will stay here again. Love this place

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the kind review. Your experience is the norm in this condo as the condo owners are constantly updating it every year and it stays in great condition. It is one of our most popular condos due to the convenience of being on the ground floor. ****Only one week separated this guests stay and Kevin J's stay. The condo and everything was the same the only difference was the renter. Please book this condo with confidence that you will have a similar 5 star experience in a 5 star ground floor condo****

Dirty, no towels, rude owner, countless lies

  • 1 of 5

Stay was during hurricane Irma. Wouldn't allow any type of refund so had to make the best of it. Get to the room it's dirty. No towels to be found. "Jon" the person you reach when you call is rude. Fake plants and decor covered in dust. Sand all over floors. Patio furniture rusty and too nasty to eat off of. Ceiling fans covered in dust. On our second day another family was trying to get in our room. They double booked our room. When we called they offered to allow us to stay Friday night when we already paid for that night. Went to the beach and told no rental chairs which the owner stated the condo had chairs.

They did offer us $100 back but what's $100 when you spend $1600+ for a crap vacation.

Avoid emerald coast destinations what a joke!

Owner's Response: ***FUTURE GUESTS PLEASE READ THIS RESPONSE AND PLEASE REALIZE THIS IS THE ONLY 1 STAR REVIEW ON THIS CONDO OUT OF ALL 32 REVIEWS**** ALOMST ALL ARE 5 STAR REVIEWS. Just as guests have the opportunity to review and rate and review our property, we have the ability to review and rate our guests on VRBO for other owners to beware prior to accepting a reservation request. On rare occasion we experience a guest so difficult and unreasonable we rate them with a 1 star rating. This guest Kevin J. was such a guest. When this happens we do rate the guest appropriately so other owners in the VRBO network will know to take caution before accepting a future reservation request from them. Regarding the countless lies I will address each. He states they paid $1600+ for their vacation. Here is an exact copy of their payment schedule Payment Requests: 1st Payment Paid $422.00 2nd Payment Due Aug 10, 2017 $914.00 Total: $1,336.00 Of which we refunded $100. So they really paid $1236. No other renters were double booked in their room. It is not possible to double book a condo on the vrbo system. The other guests did go to the wrong room and we called and corrected the problem right away and gave them the correct room. It was nothing more than a guest showing up to the door and knocking and then calling us and we corrected the situation. A simple mistake that most reasonable people would understand. Yes we did get these guests beach chairs and of course the beach chair attendant told them they aren't included with this condo. Because they are not. We told them we would get them the chairs and called the company on the beach right away and arranged to get them for them for the entire week at no charge. Something they do not mention in their review. We do provide a refund if Panama City Beach is closed for business due to a hurricane. But not if the hurricane is over 500 miles away and never projected to even affect us. Hurricane Irma was never once projected to come here and we were never even in the cone of uncertainty for the path. Not one of our hundreds of guests canceled for that week and none of our employees evacuated. We only got a little rain and 20 mph winds just as was forecasted. This guest was very difficult from the beginning, they called us cursing and trying to cancel about 5 days prior to check in. The Gulf Crest front office, beach attendants, and security all told us the same thing about them during their stay

Owner's Response: Terry it was a pleasure working with you! We are so glad to hear that you all enjoyed this ground floor unit at the Gulf Crest. Ground floor units are hard to come by at this property. This is 1 of only 2 that rent there and the owner of this condo has recently updated it by painting the entire condo, updating the old glass shower doors to a beautiful walk in shower and also updating furniture throughout the place. Please let us know when you plan on coming back to the PCB! We would love to have you all stay with us again.

Great condo, prime location.

  • 5 of 5

Never had to fool with the stairs or elevators, which the elevators had issues all week. We could watch the kids swim from the balcony and that was convenient! Our room was nice, and clean and had everything we needed! Will try our best to get this condo again next year when we come!!

Loved the location and layout of the condo, not so much the customer service from Emerald Coast

  • 3 of 5

We arrived a little after 5pm on Saturday after being told our condo would be ready at 4pm but possibly as late as 6pm. When we arrived the condo was not cleaned at all. After contacting Emerald Coast, they told us the unit was left off the cleaning schedule for the day. They sent a cleaning lady out to clean it. It was over an hour before the cleaning lady arrived. When she arrived she said it would take her a couple hours and to return in an hour to check back. We finally got into the condo at 10pm that evening.

We have 4 kids under 5 and 10pm is 3 hours past their bedtime. The cleaning lady told us the 2nd bathroom shower does not drain properly. Also the tv in the living room or master bedroom did not work. In the morning we noticed the light in the kitchen and laundry room did not come on properly. Took almost 30 minutes to warm up and turn on. We reported that to Emerald. Also a light was out in the master bathroom.

On Sunday, maintenance came to look at the tv but was not able to fix it at that time and said they would have the cable company dispatched out. They fixed the lights on Monday. On Tuesday they finally came back and at least got the tv working in the living room, but the dvd player did not work and the tv in the master bedroom did not work for the rest of the week.

We loved the location, the ground floor was great. We also loved the huge balcony right by the pool. We enjoyed a great week of crystal clear water and mostly calm waters. It was easy access to Wal Mart, local restaurants and many activities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the updates the owner made to this condo over the winter. I believe it is one of our nicest gulf crest condos. We apologize the housekeeper missed the sheets for the sleeper sofa. We are located 5 minutes away and can bring you anything you need at anytime if you call us. Please come back and rent from us again.
