We had a wonderful time in this condo. The property was great, loved the gated community, heated pool, hot tubs and shuffle board. There were plenty of supplies in the kitchen, plenty of towels and the comfortable beds.

We were initially excited to stay here however when they opened the door the smell of mildew about knocked you over I was extremely disappointed because this look like a beautiful condo we were told by the cleaning people that that smell was not going to be able to go away there was a leak in the bedroom however the management company was absolutely phenomenal to work with I called them and they immediately within 30 minutes had a different condo for us at a different location I was not disappointed in the condo they moved us to at all. Hopefully they will get that leak fixed I think this would have been a beautiful condo and I can tell you the property was absolutely beautiful

Great Condo, Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

This condo is on sixth floor with a wrap around balcony. The beach and ocean views are spectacular!! The condo was clean,; the beds were comfortable; and the air conditioning worked great. The wi-fi connection was super!

Problems: The patio door from the living room would not lock. The kitchen faucet handle was very loose. There was a little mold in the hall bathroom tub. The way you activate the shower is tricky. The TV or cable box in largest second bedroom would not work.

Suggestions: The owner needs to correct the problems listed above. An information book with how the TV/Cable box works, how the shower works, phone numbers, restaurant suggestions, and exit information would be greatly appreciated.

We have stayed at the Gulf Crest before and were very happy with the 2 bedroom condo we rented. This time we needed more room so we rented the 3 bedroom. We were really disappointed when we arrived. The condo clearly had not been cleaned, there were crumbs on the floor, dust and dirt on the tables and countertops. The linens had stains on them. We had to clean everything and wash all the linens. No one wanted to sleep on dirty sheets.

There were a lot of things broken and in disrepair. We read all the reviews and were concerned about some of the issues so we called the management company to ask if the issues had been taken care of. They assured us they were, clearly they were not, as we found out when we arrived.

The microwave which the management claimed to have installed after another customer complained was not installed a month later when we showed up. It was still sitting on the floor in a box. The fridge was missing drawers, the shower door fell off its tracks, the patio furniture was old and torn, the taps were leaking. I can go on and on but I won't.

The only thing that redeemed our stay was that we complained to the management company and they offered us a new condo. The new condo was better but also had many issues. It was very inconvenient because we had to pack up all our stuff again and move which took up our vacation time.

The beach and the complex is very nice, but I would not recommend this condo unit.

I give it 2 stars for the beach and the view of the Gulf from the balcony.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! This condo was recently remolded and is in great shape thanks to the Owner being so involved in keeping the unit a beautiful place to stay. Boardwalk offers tons of activities to keep the whole family occupied and happy while on vacation. It was a pleasure working with you, please let us know when you are planing your next vacation as we would love to have you all back in our home away from home.

I have always loved coming to Gulf Crest Condos. Every year we rent a 3 bedroom with the fantastic wrap around balcony. This year we paid the highest fee for a condo that is below our standards. There were many things that needed fixing. The $5.00 ironing board was broken. There was mold in bathroom shower. There was a used condom on the ground by the air conditioner. Blinds were broken. Screen was ripped. One lounge chair was broken. Microwave was rusted. There were 3 hangers in each closet. The master bedroom tv was literally the size of a computer monitor. The bottom 2 bins in the refrigerator (fruit/vegetable) were missing. Last but not least, it was not vacuumed. After telling all of this to the management, two days later we received another $5.00 ironing board, 12 hangers and a new microwave..,,that sat on the floor all week. If pictures are needed, just ask. It was a big disappointment. I would've given it a 1-2 star but the view of the ocean needed its own star.

Owner's Response: The Gulf Crest is known for there large wrap around balconies, they are very spacious and great for larger parties. With small items such as an ironing board it is very common for them to break due to wear and tear, we actually keep a stock of them and other small appliances on hand for this reason. Hangers tend to go home with people very frequently and unfortunately it is out of our control. We have gotten the approval to purchase a new TV for the master bedroom and got the microwave installed in its proper place. We are glad you guys enjoyed the view of the Gulf of Mexico and would like thank you for your review.
